"I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A WAY NOT TO NEED YOU". scream it. sometimes those are the most empowered ten words you can ever say, in any context. me, discussing articles in rolling stone: “It feels like the most triumphant final word I could have over critics who haven't understood me. The last word isn't: 'Ha! You finally understand me and have to write about me and cover me! It's, Ah-ha. I have finally found a way not to need you'." this is the most informative, in-depth, beautiful, and comprehensive interview i've ever done about the patreon & why it works. especially for other artists/creators wondering how patreon WORKS....give it a read! and pass it around if you are in the arts/ have a creator-heavy network. to my patrons, all 11k of you, thank you for going on this incredible ride with me. look at what is happening, it's immense. xx https://blog.patreon.com/amanda-palmer-is-home

what kind of a fuck-up world are we living in where i get “called out” on facebook for practicing “positive discrimination” for encouraging women of color to respond to an extras call for a video shoot so that we don’t have a cast of entirely white women. i gotta say. i’ve been shooting videos for a long time & i really try to diversify the genders/races/sizes of the actors and dancers in my shoots, because look what is happening in this country. i’d love to not be part of the goddamned problem. people watch my videos. kids watch my videos. given how (even more) racist/divided this country is becoming under trump, if i’m gonna make a video with a huge cast of women you can bet your ass i am going to try my hardest to reach outside of my predominantly white network and go out of my way to cast as many WoC as i can. we’ve had a hundred submissions and they are 95% from white gals. and i mean, look at me, look at my fan base. it’s seriously white and always has been. it’s not something i’m ashamed of. like attracts like and i’m a white woman from fuckin suburban massachusetts singing my pain. but here’s the thing: i KNEW i would probably get shit for specifically asking WoC to respond to this call. i paused. i was like “ughhh people are gonna give me shit”. and i did it anyway. that pause feels like everything that’s wrong with the internet and this country right now. so fuck that pause, and fuck the forces trying to curb the flow of sloppy progress (its always sloppy) and don’t forget to do what you feel is right even if some folks are gonna yell at you on facebook. and THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS 11:59pm tonight. and we are shamelessly looking for women of color. because we can. so we are. spread the word. https://www.patreon.com/posts/nyc-area-needed-20068475

NYC performers!!! we are getting a ton of great submissions for this video shoot on july 22 but the vast majority of them are from white women - if you are a woman of color or can pass it along, we'd love to get a more diverse cast - esp given the content of the video. https://www.patreon.com/posts/20068475

MAKE US PROUD AND STAND UP AGAINST BIGOTRY AND TRUMP’S BARELY-VEILED RACISM. seriously, reading the totally bitchy and anti-immigrant quotes from trump’s UK interviews is making me so sad....dear lord, please know that a lot of people in america are not into the garage he is spitting. if you can’t march, please go to social media and make a post including links to where the protests are here’s a good link to spread: https://i-d.vice.com/en_uk/article/ne5w8k/guide-trump-protest-london-scotland-2018 let’s make some noise people.

the art revolution will not be televised. i wish i could whoop and celebrate the fact that a music industry heavyweight mag like billboard is covering the patreon, but the fact that they slapped a money-based clickbait headline on it makes me just wanna cry and slam my head against my desk. jed gottlieb, the journalist, did a great job with the piece and the facts. but i assume he had to hand it over to billboard and they determined the headline. which sort of breaks my heart. man. let me say my own piece: while the media continues to become a cesspool of tabloid-style click-bait headlines as they scramble into the confusion of the ad-based future, me & my collaborators have been over here on patreon, quietly working hard on making art and culture totally off-grid. with no commercial handcuffs. you generally won't read about us in the papers, because it doesn't work that way. you will have to do the work yourself, join and follow. because we aren't cardi b, we aren't kanye, we aren't taylor swift, we aren't beyoncé. the art revolution will not be televised. as always in a capitalist society: your television will be showing you the lowest common denominator of whatever they think will appeal to the worst angels of your nature. but over here, we are at work. we've made 56 things with help from over 20,000 people over the past three years, and that's pretty incredible when you think about it: no label, no machine, a tiny team, a tiny office, and the music press mostly just occasionally looking our way in confusion and shaking their heads. fuck it. we aren't making music to sell through the streaming services, or music to hopefully capture the eye of advertisers or commercials. we are making the art and music for the real people that we know and love. and it's working. i have never been prouder in my career. it took me twenty years to get here, but i figured it out. a thank you to billboard for covering the story. but to everybody: remember the human narrative versus the headlines. they aren't the same thing. the art revolution will not be televised. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8465097/amanda-palmer-patreon-raising-more-funding-kickstarter

"How much money can we afford to lose making this video...is it $10,000? Is it $20,000? Is it $70,000?" an incredibly long and in-depth interview about art, time, money, process, and the making of the new "pulp fiction" video.

dear donald trump, re: your misunderstanding of breastfeeding. at some point, with the correct time machine, we will arrange to get you retroactively breastfed, loved, seen, cuddled and therefore de-nuclearized. love, the rest of the planet. "mother": http://youtu.be/iisI8bCOcSc

to give you a little hope this friday night, via patti smith on instagram: This is the 83rd birthday of his Holiness the Dalai Lama. He is in India sharing the blessings of the day with friends and followers.I remember in 1959, his country invaded, the news of him, so young, fleeing on foot. I remember praying, a school girl, for his safe passage. Now he is among us,calling for compassion towards one another, love for our earth,protection of all children. We must do our best, sending him a sky of extended hands open hearts and bright smiles. preach, patti

can we talk about hayley rosenblum for a second? it’s her birthday. hayley has been one of the secret weapons of my life and this community for about 10 years. she has been helping me figure out ways to make music easier for people to hear and ways to make it easier for our tribe to help me, each other, and other artists. if you’re on my patreon, you have gotten to see lately how goddam hard this woman works to keep our engine room going. she also has a heart of gold and is a truly exemplary human being in so many ways, and i’m often humbled by her staunch ethical kindness and her hardcore and fierce protection of those who who deserve protecting. FOUR CHEERS FOR HAYLEY. thank you for helping me, thank you for helping this community, thank you for being a force of good on the internet and in the real world, and have an AMAZING FUCKING BIRTHDAY. 🍭 (ps hayley is also a great photographer. follow her insta/FB for pix of beautiful things happening on stages in new york and beyond. she’s Hayley Rosenblum Photography and @hayleyfiasco on twitter and IG.

DEAR PATRONS, and WORLD, this is your monthly reminder that on the 1st of every month, i lose about *500* patrons because their credit cards are declined (usually it's because people have switched cards and haven't updtated their patroen accounts...i know, i know, it's not at the top of your list. but, POKE. POOOOOOOOKE.) patrons: go check your account and make sure your credit card info is up to date (and while you're there, put in your mailing address!!! you can do that now so i can know where you are - AND I CAN COME TOUR NEAR YOU, which is part of the point!!) WORLD: if you're not on my patreon, it's pretty amazing. this past month we funded/released a joni mitchell song, a stop-motion video and a short story...and everything is feeling particularly fiery and awesome in the community garden. we have more videos and writings and songs and things coming...and patrons also get access to my blogs, secret shows, webchats, and first grab at tickets when i tour. do not wait, go. you cam join for as little as $1/month. that's $12/year, less than the cost of most CDs. if you wanna support me, this is it it. do it. i love you. we are the media. https://www.patreon.com/amandapalmer

life is psychedelical dream this week...this is david mack's new stop-motion video (it took hundreds of hours to create) for "pulp fiction" (from me & edward ka-spel's patron-funded dark-synth-y album "i can spin a rainbow".) the video was released along with a surreally disturbing patron-only short story (inspired by.dancing with the video and song) by lauren beukes. watch and wonder

dispatch from the #FamiliesBelongTogether march this morning in woodstock. it’s a small town, but a good 800+ people came and chanted, marched and let the town know where we stand. chants of “this is what democracy looks like” and “DON’T GIVE IN TO RACIST FEAR / REFUGEES ARE WELCOME HERE” resounded through the tiny town center. ash was slightly cranky and kept wailing “WANT TO GO HOOOOOME!!! HOOOOME WITH MAMA!!!!” he had no idea how poetic his cries were, in context.

the first nineteen seconds of my latest video: a deliciously psychedelic trip of stop-motion by David Mack & Olga Nunes for the song “pulp fiction”, which i co-wrote with Edward Ka-Spel. apparently david almost burned his studio down making this masterpiece of weird. YAY ART we also made our own patreon history and released a SHORT STORY to PATRONS ONLY that south african writer Lauren Beukes penned inspired by the song AND the video. got that? the entire story (including the full video...) is here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/pulp-fiction-by-19664511 to my patrons (11,000 strong!!)....thank you for supporting me, my team, david. and all these artists/makers/writers. it’s so incredible.

it still warms my heart when people write me long real cards or letters and go out of their way to include money. not because i need the extra $20 badly to buy groceries...this is a predicament i have grown out of, thank christ (though it doesn’t feel like long ago when earning an extra $20 would literally make my day). it warms my heart because they’ve read my book (or seen my ted talk) and know that i won’t be one goddam bit ashamed to take it as a thank you gesture in exchange for what i may have done for them...through art, through music, through writing, through whatever. money is just energy. to krt (who gave me this letter at my woodstock show but included no email...) if you see this: thank you. i’m sorry about sebastian (i lost my own sebastian a few years ago), no, i didn’t take your comment last year the wrong way (music is a changing tool and sometimes you need to put it away to let it become the next tool).... and i hug you. i’m gonna go buy some salsa, guac, kale and and black beans with this. that should just about cover it. i may buy the fancy fresh salsa.
