welp, there you have it people. it is the #summerofbabies up here in upstate new york. a few days after beautiful thelonious showed up to accompany sxip shirey and coco karol...my old friend and writer maria davhana headly and her feller will have given birth to a magnificent little baby named grimoire. grim for short. the outlook is anything but....he’s 9 days old and wriggling away. maria’s severely diabetic, and her pregnancy and birth were a real nail-biter around here....i’m so happy she’s okay and everyone is through the other side in two glorious pieces. wish i didn’t have to leave all this beauty behind...but off to the UK i go. this is also a reminder to wear a bra around the house when you have company, it’s only polite pants if you absolutely gotta.

jason webley and i are attending/playing #Woodstock50 this weekend!! 🕊️♥️🎼 oh yes...it’s happening. the location is somewhat secret & only 11 tickets were ever available. headliners: janis joplin, hendrix, the band, and limp bizkit. the tickets were $11 and sold out almost immediately. nudity is mandatory!! it rained yesterday so there’s tons of mud. traffic was insane getting here so we missed most of day one. every attendee has already conceived at least two children. rumors are circulating that bob dylan may show up to play a secret set of frank sinatra covers today ☮️ if you’re in upstate new york, swing by...take route 212 west from woodstock center, drive exactly 11 miles, close your eyes, put 3 tabs of the toy story 4 acid under your tongue, take a left at the flaming guitar, drive another 11 miles with your eyes closed, then take a turn straight up into the sky for about 2500 feet. we are the third cloud to the right. listen for the peace, love and music...you’ll hear us.

feminism on the internet does battle with impending climate change: a dance in 8 pictures. these are stills Krys Fox took during the “drowning in the sound” video filming (which is approaching 100k views on youtube, huzzah). most of this dark-duet-dance between me & 7-month-pregnant choreographer/dancer coco karol wound up on the video cutting room floor, but the photographs are almost more powerful in themselves. if you haven’t seen the whole video yet, please please go watch it. it’s really moving people. makeup: regina harris, costumes: andrea lauer. video directed by michael pope. here’s the video link: https://youtu.be/70ApTTyKpdg

want to see a seven-month-pregnant woman battle climate change? okay. one song, two pianos, five dancers, one fetus, one pool, one lantern, one boat, about 25,000 gallons of water and one huge, dark, underwater cry from the heart of humanity. can you hear us out there? are you listening? the long-awaited video for DROWNING IN THE SOUND is now up, and i've made a long post about it on my own patreon (i'll link to it down in the comments). my heart is exploding with joy at the release of this video project - so many months in the making, so much blood (literally), sweat (literally), and tears (literally) went into this moving picture. my gratitude is especially massive for michael pope, for getting back in the director’s chair, where he goddamn belongs, for this masterpiece. 2007 was the last time we collaborated together on something huge (for "who killed amanda palmer"). he killed it. and there are no words for how i feel about coco karol and her pregnant, fecund mind and choreography. thank you, coco, for bringing these dancers into my life and for making this with us. and most important: thank you to my 15,000 patrons. your support literally makes it possible for us to afford a process this ambitious. without you, we drown. thank you. thank you. thank you. please, if you love this video, take it wherever you can. you know what to do. we are the media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70ApTTyKpdg&feature=youtu.be

climate change, children, the internet, isolation, oh my. how do you make a video about all that? we tried. we used a lot of make-up, and a lot of water. it was dark. the official video for “drowning in the sound” comes tomorrow. director: michael pope choreo: coco karol

the more american people shoot other people en masse, the more i feel like posting positive sides of the weirdness that is america. you know me; i am a sucker in general for anything that involves people trusting other people. this is an honor-system eggs & maple stand down the street from our house. the farmers just trust the locals to put money in a tin box. they even lay out dollars so people can take change. i wonder if anybody ever rips them off. i left an extra dollar when we bought our eggs today. i figured i didn’t really need the dollar change and somebody else might. i remember when i was broke and a dollar was a lot.

EVERYBODY - i don’t often promote press or interviews, but this conversation with brian foster (of critical role) was really, really...something special. we talked long and hard and deep (and i believe we both burned through three cocktails each - how could we not - somebody had made corpse revivers and they were VERY DELICIOUS). there were tears throughout. enough said. i’ve been waiting for this one to be released for ages...and it’s airing tonight at 7pm Pacific on http://twitch.tv/criticalrole and will be available on youtube on wednesday, august 7th at youtube.com/criticalrole xx

iremember when my mom gave me my first driving lesson - i was 15 - and she turned to me from the passengers seat of the tiny white honda accord we were sitting in. i was in the drivers seat giddy with potential power. I WAS GOING TO DRIVE!! she looked me sqaure in the eye and said: “amanda, a car is a death machine”. goth mom. but another shooting. another sinking feeling. another good moment to share a sane, well-written and well-researched piece. language is indeed powerful, & excellent point for liberal-leaning people: it’s best to frame this discussion and movement not as one about “gun control”, which pisses people off incredibly (nobody wants to be controlled, it’s a free country dammit) but a movement about “gun safety”, or “reducing gun violence”. nobody can goddamn argue with that. how could you? i mean, i’m sure you could. try. it does strike me as odd that nobody argues very much about HAVING to have a drivers license, and HAVING to take a drivers test to get it, and HAVING to be a person with a sane driving record to be behind the wheel of an automobile (aka death machine).

well i will be goddamned. i’ve been seeing tattoos related to my work from the dawn of the dresden dolls....i’ve seen full portraits of my face on people’s arms and legs. i’ve seen full backs covered in punk cabaret slogans. i’ve seen lyrics up and down legs. i’ve seen album covers recreated in all colors on all body parts. but i have to say, almost nothing has made me feel as emotional as this one. as to the question: you know the answer about as well as i do. it changes in the moment. right now if you’re wondering wafpwd, she would cry at a tattoo. (posted from @ chelbawamba on instagram, tattoo by @ stickpokers...if anyone knows them on FB please tag them in?)

a short manifesto-ish video of me reading from my latest patreon post, re: the NYtimes power failure songwriting contest, art, criticism.....and how we keep getting it all wrong. i was slightly drunk when i wrote it so forgive the lack of english-ing. what i lacked in grammar i made up for in passion. the whole post is here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/power-of-power-28810198 ....including the first winning song (by thomas herlofsen) and my cover of it.

if you can’t tell what’s going on here NEITHER CAN I!!! no - this is what’s going on: it’s the end of the month and so it’s the last moment to thing one more fun thing; i had this day potentially free for the studio and so...i decided to pop in to record the first (yes, first, which means there will be more than one - there were over 300 submissions, i am dead!!!) winner of the “power failure” songwriting contest. i’ve roped in some local magicians and we are slaving away to make this thing happen. it’ll be mixed and ready for dinner at midnight tonight. watch your patreon inboxes for the final sounds - it already sounds like heaven to me. I LOVE MAKING MUSIC. I LOVE HOW THE PATREON MAKES ME MAKE MUSIC. i gotta make more music. also, patrons : i’m about to send a post regarding adding your full name and city/country to your submissions so i can include that in the announcement!!!!! WATCH YER INBOXES PEOPLE.

‪“No one told me ‘just play a blues jam - you’ll get the same levels - you don’t have to sing about your rape at soundcheck.” ‬ -AFP “Coming to this work, I wanted it to be confrontational and to explore the ideas of gender-based violence in a way that wasn’t traditionally feminist. The work is not informed by any kind of Feminist school of thought, feminist theory, or—and I don’t really think about feminism at all when I make the work. I think about misogyny and hatred of women. And the attitudes espoused there. And about re-contextualizing and flipping the attitude instead.” - KH in conversation with the force that is Lingua Ignota aka kristin hayter - an hour-long podcast/interview from SXSW this past march. her new album “caligula” just dropped last week and got a four-star review in the guardian. she is incredible. listen hard. ‪ brought to you ad/sponsor/bullshit-free thanks to my patrons. here’s the link to the post: https://www.patreon.com/posts/28567131

i’m so proud to be part of Ten Bands One Cause this year. my new record THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION is being pressed on limited edition pink vinyl with 100% of the proceeds going to Gilda's Club NYC, only a few hundred are made and it'll be out on september 27th....more info: http://tenbandsonecause.com i'll also have some up for sale on my US webstore soon, too... as a person who believes we should live shame-free and supported by our fellow earthlings no matter our lot, i'm so proud to be sending dough and attention to Gilda's Club, a charity that provides free emotional and social support for cancer patients and their families. i lost my best friend to cancer only a few years ago, and i feel deeply for any person who is struggling to navigate the mad chaos that it can wreak on your life and work.

there is nobody else to blame. i fucked up and sent Shirley Manson - the legendary singer of garbage - to the wrong recording studio and now our hopes of podcasting together today are dashed and what is worse, i’ve done what i hate people doing to me and i’ve left someone standing outside a goddamn building that they can’t get into and wasted somebody’s time. she’s in town; i’m in leith. i’m sure we will reschedule and shirley forgave me and was really nice about it. but i need a hug, because i haven’t fucked up like this in a while and i feel like an asshole. the irony is that i was on the phone with neil last night, chiding him for not reading his emails and texts and leaving things hanging and pissing people off. the gods have answered loudly. the end.
