“This is the ugly conundrum of the digital age: When you traffic in outrage, you get death... ...It pains me as a journalist, and someone who once believed that a worldwide communications medium would herald more tolerance, to admit this — to say that my first instinct was to turn it all off. But it has become clear to me with every incident that the greatest experiment in human interaction in the history of the world continues to fail in ever more dangerous ways.” important read re: social media from Kara Swisher. it’s all changing so fast. pay attention.

we were walking through central park today (a perfect post-beacon gig comedown family day with maddy & Neil Gaiman) and there was a community baseball game of sorts just finishing, all participants filing away and high-fiving each other. ash had dragged us over to the bleachers for the last 30 seconds of the game. when the field cleared he ran out to first base yelling “MY TURN” and this total stranger walked out with a bat and gave him a five-minute spontaneous batting lesson. neil and i watched from behind a fence as this stranger - who felt our presence but never spoke with us - taught our kid how to hold a bat and hit a ball. i’m not much of a baseball person, but this moment filled my whole heart. new yorkers are just so beautiful sometimes. and also: as churches burn and some people in the world are horrible to one another, we have to remember there are constant acts of spontaneous generosity and easy kindness flowing against the fear. all the time. add to that current. stay connected and open. i love you all. and whoever you were, stranger, thank you. we would have asked your name but we were running after a child who was making a beeline for the next adventure. ..... home for a music video shoot tomorrow, then taking the show to SF, LA, nashville, atlanta, denver, st. louis, kansas city, seattle & portland...am i missing anything. new york and boston were transcendent. ill blog everything when i surface. thank you to everyone who came this weekend - thank you for everything.

happy easter. perfect post-NYC show comedown in central park with the fam.
Amanda Palmer Apr 20, 2019
um, wow. this is the first time i've ever seen anybody offer a money-back guarantee on one of my shows. and i think he's probably serious. so...go ahead :) thanks ed solomon. also, this review from chinmaya arun made me almost cry. seeing hannah gadsby's show in london was a huge inspiration for me to take this show a few steps further into why-not-honesty. we JUST got to NYC for tonight's show at the historic beacon theater...i was just here over christmas with cyndi lauper and regina spektor. there are a few tickets left for the show tonight - in the balcony!!! REMINDER: doors at 6:30, show at 7:30 SHARP!!!! really! not 7:40! 7:30. it's real. it's REAL!!!! please spread the word. a bunch of people showed up late in boston last night and it was a distracting bummer for all involved. and patrons....i just posted our meet-up/photo info here!!! https://www.patreon.com/posts/new-york-photo-26243916

the venue itself isn’t always important. but tonight it is. the last time i was here at the orpheum in boston it was to see tori amos. before that, nick cave. before that, leonard cohen. i’ve played here before - the dresden dolls opened up for NIN here in 2005, then headlined in 2006 - but this is my first time taking this stage solo in my ol’ hometown. there are so many patrons and old friends and family coming tonight, and it feels more like a homecoming than ever before. i’m excited af. see you soon. patrons, i sent an email about a pre-show meet-up/photo. i love you all. SHOW STARTS AT 7:30 SUPER SHARP!!! please come by 7pm latest to be seated. doors at 6:30. (photo by Hayley Rosenblum Photography)

outside the house i grew up in, 9 am, with my mom, kathy. the geography of driving from woodstock to boston meant that i got to spend last night in the house i grew up in ... the night before the biggest solo show of my career in my hometown. we had breakfast together and talked about abortion rights and climate change. photo by john, my step-dad, who’s been in the picture since i was one year old. they’ll both be at the orpheum tonight to cheer me on. it used to be so hard to tell my parents the truth. so much has changed. i love you, mom & john. thanks for raising me.

‪“it’s the most dangerous of recent acts,‬ to ban where hearts can go. it is a different kind of war, a kind of terrorism of the soul.” -from my poem for poem for dzhokhar (photo taken a few minutes ago in my hometown of lexington, mass...en route to the orpheum in boston for tonights show). the whole poem: https://www.patreon.com/posts/poem-recording-26177383
Amanda Palmer Apr 18, 2019
i just published a follow-up poem to “poem for dzhokhar”. it has been six years - almost to the day - since the boston marathon bombing. in a way, this poem has taken six years to write. i explain in the post. to my patrons: thank you. i would not have been brave enough to do this without you. $5,000 from this patreon post is being paid forward to Mass Poetry, without whom the poem probably wouldn’t have ever been finished (also explained in the post). i love you all. but, “perhaps one did want to be loved so much as to be understood.” -george orwell happy national poetry month. x a https://www.patreon.com/posts/26177383

9 am, tuesday, april 16th. today is anthony (senior)’s birthday. i still miss him every day. even more now that i’m talking about him on stage by night, weaving the story. i’m exhausted by the show and yet it’s feeding me things i didn’t know i was hungry for. this coming weekend of shows is the hardest one. i play the orpheum in boston on friday and face all the demons of the past, and i play the beacon in new york on saturday where my new community of artist friends will watch on. a perfect one two punch. past into present. Neil Gaiman took this photo this morning while we slept in and dreamt our respective dreams. the cold comes, churches burn, cancer comes, people get born and die. anthony used to love reminding me: everything changes. everything changes. everything changes.

all my love and tears pouring out to my friends and community in paris, in france ... and everywhere. the image, from @thisispattismith’s instagram feed. go read her powerful words. the feeling of seeing the flaming spire fall was like no feeling i’ve had in my life. my body chilled. this church has been a thread in my life in so many small ways...the week-long drawing i did as a student, sitting daily in the plaza, the painting of it by my step-grandad in our living room that watched over me, the street performer i met in front of the church when i was 17...who became a lover and a friend. architecture is time is love is life, we intertwine. i just posted this on twitter to someone who was bemoaning the people saying its “only a building”... this building just...transcends. i remember seeing it for the first time, when i was small, and feeling actual awe and love. it’s a wonder-miracle of human-made beauty, history and story. it’s “only a building” the way the statue of liberty is “only a sculpture”. we will mourn and rebuild ... something. my heart is broken.
Amanda Palmer Apr 14, 2019
i no longer take certain things about “the media” for granted. like the fact that NPR has stood by this album so fiercely...and that i just spoke very openly about abortion on minnesota public radio this morning. they asked the right questions, we held the space, they weren’t afraid to go there. this is so important. it was an epic 3-song piano session and charged + vulnerable interview with The Current - it’s airing at 3pm CDT and streaming live at TheCurrent.org. photo by nate ryan. so many props to this station. tune in and use this thread for discussion. i love you.

this is hard to write. i am sittin’ on a plane bound for chicago, illinois, and on saturday i’ll fly to st. paul, minnesota.....where i will sit down at pianos in giant theaters. and where i am going to tell several thousand people (spoiler chicago, sorry!!!) about my abortions. yes, abortions. plural. i’ve had three. one when i was 17. and two in my thirties, after i got married. in none of these cases was i raped. in one case, the fetus wasn’t viable. in the other two: i chose. i chose. i wasn’t ready. in all of these cases (one in massachusetts, one in edinburgh, and one in new york city) i had easy access to a safe and legal abortion. so after i chose, i had help and a safe abortion was in the neighborhood. i didn’t have to travel, i didn’t have to lie, i didn’t have to order black-market abortion pills from the internet or tangle with a metaphoric (or real) coat hanger. i was safe. i talk about these experiences in my stage show partly because i’m ready to get rid of the dark stories that have festered inside me for too long, and also because i feel like i owe a favor to my former self. when i was 17, there was no google. i walked through the experience of having an abortion in the dark, carrying an i appropriate secret. it just wasnt supposed to be said aloud. ever. by the time i was in my 30s, there was google. but google algorithms led me mostly to misinformation and to horror. i was old enough to realize that google was a strange destination for help. there just wasn’t a lot of good information out there for me to access. there wasn’t a good abortion handbook. there wasn’t a big friendly website to hold my hand and explain the emotions - not that i could easily find, at least. it was lonely. there weren’t any easily-findable songs or music videos to match my experience and make me feel less alone in my complicated stew of hormones and choice and pain. (that’s why i made “voicemail for jill” and the accompanying video...i’ll post it in the comments). i’ve chosen to have one child. he’s three, and he’s wonderful. and i’ve had one miscarriage. (didn’t choose that one, nope). and every one of these experiences, every one of these disorienting and empowering womb-moments, has emboldened me to speak plainly, shamelessly and openly about what happens - on the inside, in our hearts, and on the outside, in our communities - when we are shamed and herded into a dark corner regarding our reproductive decisions. and i realize more and more how much overall damage is done to the fabric of our communities when they snatch away the sovereignty we deserve to have over our own bodies. our own bodies. i’ll tell you something....i didn’t wanna tour the globe on this record and recount these stories every night. really. i didn’t. i didn’t want to get thrown into the “oh it’s a ranty feminist show it won’t be any fun and it’s not for me “ box. my show is not ranty. it’s actually funny af. and, y’know...i don’t want to be “the abortion lady”, y’all. but. but. things are getting very, very, very bad for women right now. what is happening is horrifying and real. global fascism and religious extremism are on the rise, and we know our history. the FIRST THING THEY GO AFTER is a person’s right to control their own body and destiny. control the wombs and you control the political agenda. state by state, access to safe abortion is quietly - but truly - going bye-bye. this bill was just signed by the governor of ohio. this is happening. this bill means that many women will have to travel out of state to access safe abortion, because by the time they realize they are pregnant and go through the process of scheduling/procuring an abortion - it’s crossed the timeline. it’s a trap. laws like this disproportionately effect poorer folks who cannot afford to leave the state, rendering them hopeless with no choice other than to carry out a pregnancy - and have a child - they may not be able to afford. it will statistically have a harsher effect on people of color and LGBTQ folks. it’s stupid. it’s sexist. it’s racist. it’s another slide in the wrong direction. we need to act. if you want to learn more about what you can do, i highly recommend you tune into the feeds of NARAL Pro-Choice America and check out what Planned Parenthood Action feeds are up to - they are also on FB and on twitter and instagram. follow and pay attention. i have also invited planned parenthood to set up an info table at every show i am doing in north america - please visit them in the lobby if you’re coming to this tour (along with headcount, who are registering people to vote). give them money. volunteer. ask what you can do to help the agenda. info-wise, if you want a good place to start: go read this planned parenthood bulletin about protecting title X and take action immediately. in a nutshell, the trump/pence team has issued a “gag order” preventing health care providers from telling folks their options about access to abortion. it’s appalling. https://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/issues/health-care-equity/title-x we cannot let them take away our right to choose. we’ve fought too hard for too many years. but most importantly: our stories, told boldly, are the most powerful weapon we wield against this madness. if you can....share your story. now is the time to speak. if you’ve spoken before, speak again. speak for the ones who can’t. we must speak. if we can...we must. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/04/ohio-governor-fetal-heartbeat-abortion-ban-sign/

"one of my good friends, malka, came to meet me after the DC show. the one that went 4.5 hours. she went straight into friend-mode, and i felt my brain collapsing. i wanted and needed to be her friend but i actually felt myself unable to deliver my friendship to her...it was as if someone had pulled the drain out of the bottom of my emotional bathtub. i just couldn't even keep my thoughts straight. i thought: i need to be careful. i shouldn't be offering myself to anyone after this show. it's stupid, and inconsiderate. i can't do anything. i'm useless. when i went to see hannah gadbsy's show in london, we'd been chatting on DM in twitter, and i asked if she wanted to hang out after the show. she said she never sees anybody after the show. i was like: that's weird. i didn't really get it at the time. now i get it." a blog about being lonely after shows, a call for feedback....and an idea for an experiment.

over the weekend i shared my innermost soul with thousands of people. now i am in a waiting room. neil got prickly with me this morning for telling all of twitter yesterday that he snores. (he snores). and he was like “someday i am going to tell the whole internet something that you don’t want them to know and that makes you uncomfortable” and i said “like what” and then he got pissed because he couldn’t think of anything for a second and then he said “i could tell people that you are going to get a mammogram today because you have a pain in your boob”. so i wasn’t necessarily going to post about this but neil inspired me. dear everyone, i am getting a mammogram today because i have a pain in my boob. this photo was taken fifteen minutes ago and then i got my boobs squished in a boob x-ray machine for the first time in my forty-two years on earth. the doctor said he did t see anything weird but i have Dense Breasts (note to self: death metal band name) and he wants me to get an ultrasound. i’ll have to come back. i’m sure everything is fine. and if it isn’t, i’ll let you know. and i’m not afraid to tell you...anything. and you shouldn’t be afraid of anything either, ever. i love you no matter what happens. and if you have a pain in your boob, get a mammogram. it was pretty fun and took 10 minutes. chicago, me & mah boobz will see you at the chicago theater on friday night. st. paul, we’ll see you saturday at the o’shaughnessy theater. it’s just a ride. 💥🎡

TEN REASONS PATRONAGE IS REVOLUTIONARY: 10. i never have to tangle with an ad sponsorship. 9. i never had second-guess myself or whether my artwork might "offend" because i have a corporate tie-in. 8. no label (usually run by a bunch of men) or boardroom (usually run by a bunch of men) gets to tell me what to do, how to look, how to create, how to market my art, and how to spend my time with my community. 7. i'm the artist. it's done when i say it's done. 6. i'm the artist. it comes out when i want it to come out. 5. if i decide to leave money on the table because it doesn't feel right, nobody can twist my arm and force me. 4. my community knows their money is going directly into the funding of my creations. they pay my management, my staff, my engineers, my visual and graphic artists, and all my other collaborators. there is no middleman to take 90% of my income before i (or any of the artists i work with) see a penny. 3. i'm the artist....and i'm the mother. if i want to take time off to spend with my kid, there is nobody there to tell me that i should be prioritizing my art over time with my kid. hell no. i decide that. 2. if i spend money to create something and i'm not happy with the result, nobody can tell me to put it out anyway because money has been spent. it's my risk to take, it's my money to lose. it comes out only if i'm proud of it. 1. there is no voice nagging in the back of my mind as i write, as i think, as i create, saying "you're going to have to sell this somehow". my job is to MAKE THE THING, without simultaneously worrying about how to SELL THE THING.IT'S ALREADY SOLD BECAUSE MY PATRONS BELIEVE IN MY VOICE AND WHAT IT HAS TO SAY. .................. to the almost 15,000 people who are currently supporting me on patreon: thank you for making my entire life possible. i'm going to head off to a dance rehearsal in a space you're paying for, with dancers you're paying, and get a coffee on the way. you're paying for the coffee. i may buy a nice blank journal at the bookshop next to the coffeeshop. you're paying for that too. this is also your monthly reminder that on the 1st of every month, i lose about 500 people to declines/switched credit cards. go make sure your account is active!!!! join my patron community here, for as little as $1/month: https://www.patreon.com/amandapalmer i love you all so much.

“I think that’s why this album can never be really tangled out from this moment in time, in 2019,” says Palmer of her own experiences that provided inspiration for the album. “With #MeToo just having happened, with Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby just having been brought down, with Hannah Gadsby just having taken stage, there’s a realization right now that the truth of our stories is actually the most powerful weapon that we have, and marching in the streets is powerful, and clicking on a petition on change.org can be powerful, and calling your senator can also be powerful. But the sharpest tool in our arsenal, especially as women, is standing up and stating the naked truth of our experience. Because the truth is the f—king truth. And when women simply get up and say it, it’s inarguable.” YESSSSSSSS. this entire interview is gold, i must have been in a real mood when this phone call came in. please give it a read.
