hot damn!!! YOU NEVER KNOW. the fact that Kyrsten Sinema just took the race in arizona - after a recount and a narrow margin, against a really horrific and hateful republican opponent - makes me feel all warm and fuzzy about the fact that we took the time to stump for her from stage when we were in tucson right before the election. who knows, arizona, it may have been your vote, your phone call, your offer to drive your friend to vote that made the difference. THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE !!!! VOTE VOTE VOTE AND KEEP ON VOTING. WE’VE GOT TO KEEP WORKING AND VOTING AND SHOWING UP. to everyone in arizona who’s been working tirelessly for human rights, healthcare, equal pay, and a better future for *everyone*, THIS IS A HISTORIC DAY. SINEMA FOR THE WIN

It is painfully obvious that there is no shooting appalling enough to make American politicians stand up to the National Rifle Association and gunmakers... ...Our leaders think and pray their way through the horror. - right on, there. how horrible does it need to get before things change ? we ask again and again and again and again.

‪GOOD MORNING AMERICA, i wanna tell you a little story. esp y’all in ARIZONA & the SOUTHWEST. the race in arizona is when i was in tucson last month to visit my dad - and for a show - i tweeted out to try to connect with supporters of kyrsten sinema, the democratic candidate. and through that tweet, i was lucky to meet alma hernandez (on the right) who got on stage at the rialto theater, grabbed the mic, and told our crowd how she quit her job to run for office. she was just like: if nobody else is gonna do this, i’m gonna do it. and she’s TWENTY-FIVE. she’s now not only the YOUNGEST elected rep in arizona but she’s also the ONLY LATINA JEW in office down there. can i get an AMEN for people having the power. this midterm vote is going to - i hope - shake the foundations of listing america to its slowly-teetering-apathetic core and prove that inspiring people like alma - and her sister consuela, on the left, who’s also joined the political ranks - are CHANGING THE COURSE OF AMERICAN HISTORY. there’s energy and hope and compassion everywhere. the time to act is now. every voice, every vote counts. and it doesn’t work unless you participate. EVERYBODY GET OUT AND VOTE TODAY. ARIZONA/SOUTHWEST: please pass this around so *everyone* you know in arizona sees it....we are looking to YOU to get kyrsten sinema into office. if you’ve been following, her republican opponent is a nightmare - a weird military rah-rah who spent her entire debate kissing trump’s bum and denying that climate change was Even Worth Debating. IN ARIZONA. cmon. and all of you::: let us know when you’ve voted so we can cheer you on ... LET’S DO THIS (photo taken backstage @ the rialto in tucson with the amazing alma & consuela hernandez) #TeamSinema ‬#vote

whether or not the #bluewave is really gonna happen, i made it real with this Public Announcement Kimono...for a few seconds at least. here’s a slapdash gallery from the @dresden Dresden Dolls show at troxy in london. the band hadn’t played london in 12 years, and we talked about everything: brexit, the trans rights shitshow in the USA, brazil .. one world, one human family, people. AMIRITE??? hundreds of people in london got shots of the public announcement kimono - which belonged to costume designer Andrea Lauer’s grandmother and was exhumed TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE UNIVERSE - then people posted the shots back over to the states to encourage USA people to vote. the soundtrack that played: “know your rights” by the clash. WE CAN DO THIS, PEOPLE. i’m on a plane @ Heathrow Airport right now about to fly to new york just in time to do an after-vote throw-down with @jherekbischoff, @brainpicker and many others at City Winery NYC tomorrow night (the 6th) - see their website for tickets. they’re cheap ($10+) and ALL PROCEEDS go to HeadCount. and i’ll be really tired. go vote and then come hugh me and listen to us rage with beautiful quartet political punk rock. HEY HO LETS GO see you new yorkers tomorrow night #votethemout #vote #blue #votevotevote #publicannouncementkimono. photos by kenny mathieson, Gabrielle Motola Photography, hayley rosenblum & @ mrdanimelow (instagram).

my friend Amy Cuddy on “envious prejudice.” “...when times get tough, envious prejudices can ignite. Societal breakdown, harsh economies or political turmoil can activate resentment toward high-status minorities, who are seen as competitors for limited resources or even dangerous enemies.” worthwhile read.

a special selfie with a london-small-world story. this is @ kathybolt from instagram, who managed to get a mystery box delivered to me at one of the The Dresden Dolls shows last week. it was a box of halloween-themed marmite with my name / neil’s name (pictured here as posted on insta the other day. which is how we found kathy). i hate marmite. (and vegemite. it is a known fact. there are songs.) anyway: last night Neil Gaiman and i headed to the thick of london to see sondheim’s new gender-bent version of “company” (my general review: A+ production, C- politically & emotionally relevant in 2018) and she was WORKING AT THE SHOW and spotted us here in the lobby. this is my expression for people who give me gifts and those gifts are marmite. neil, of course, being british and marmite-loving, is happy af. dresden dolls photos are coming. i am still recovering it was epic

one cold boston halloween night in the year 2000, Brian Viglione came over with our mutual bassist friend, shawn setaro, to a halloween party at my house, the cloud club, and The Dresden Dolls were born - snack in between the turn of the millennium and the flames of 9/11. this band became our life in all totality for eight years. we toured the world three times, lived in busses, hotels and fans houses, and made loud loud beautiful music for people who, like us, needed a rock love family. the punk cabaret idea of personal expression and freedom spread from san francisco to sydney to stuttgart. everyone everywhere was welcome to our shows. today are playing our first halloween / bandiversary show in the UK ever - and our first shows here period since playing two sold out shows at london’s roundhouse back in 2006. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BAND. YOU ARE 18!! YOU CAN FINALLY VOTE!!! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THATS HOLY VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6th, DEAR AMERICANS!!!! and london - THANK YOU YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO THE TROXY LAST NIGHT. and to everyone coming tonight - DRESS 2 IMPRESS....we have surprised for you.

to my community in brazil, because i know there are a lot of you, i wanted to write to all of you. i am crying for you. it may get worse before it gets better, but we are feeling your pain and we are with you. the world is watching. i am writing this to you from a late-night bed in london with Neil Gaiman and our three year old son, just having read the news about the extremely violent shooting in america where a gunman took down 11 jewish people in a synagogue. in both america and england: division, hatred, fear, racism, anger and far-right sentiment is on the rise. a lot of my followers from brazil on twitter are in tears. listen to me. you aren’t alone. YOU AREN’T ALONE. millions of people up in america are mourning with you, grief-stricken, wondering what is happening to our planet. this is the time to work harder, be kinder, listen harder, and get more political. the only thing that is going to fight off this swing to the extreme right around the globe is a powerful equally reactive surge from the side of tolerance, equality, science, compassion, diligence in peacefulness. this is not the time to stand by. especially to my feminists of all genders down there: this is the time to become more political if you have not been. it is time to educate yourself harder and read more. it is time to protest. it is the time to make more art. it is the time to not be afraid. it is the time to get more feminist. empowered women are going to be a key factor in what pushes back against this bizarre fascist surge. it may be time for a trip down to brazil. i need a hug from you guys. let’s do it. xxxxxxxx “He accomplished little in his long legislative career, but his roster of offensive remarks — he said that he’d rather his son die than be gay and that women don’t deserve the same pay as men — was interpreted by many as bracing honesty and evidence of his willingness to shatter the status quo.” sounds like something straight out of the donald trump playbook. good lord. time to batten down the hatches and work together, my brazilian friends. we love you. we do. hang in there. xxxx a Jair Bolsonaro, Far-Right Populist, Elected President of Brazil

when even your underwear disappoints you. “sometimes you land in london and you unpack quickly so you can get on with the only jetlagged day off you have before an epic run of rehearsals and you curse time and space because you realize that somehow on the last 4 legs of packing and unpacking you’ve managed to lose two whole varieties of items. not just a few things, but whole GROUPS of things. and you have no idea where and you quietly grieve and say goodbye to all the objects and clothings you realize you will never see again and you put on a load of laundry and walk around the place and greet the babysitter relatively pantsless but with a coat on because you only realized at the last minute that the pants you...” (con’t on post)

i'm super proud of the audiobook version of "the art of asking", my memoir about life and love and crowdfunding. i recorded it myself, included music, and cried a few times. it's out now on double gatefold vinyl. if listening to audiobooks and records are your thing, get it here: the cover is an alternate take from the original book cover photoshoot, photographed by Allan Amato. the red bar is a sticker so it can be displayed on newstands at music and book stores know why.

the "mr weinstein will see you know" video has been covered in the past few days by CNN (!) and people magazine (!?), but i have to say, none of it means as nearly much to me as having the video covered in-depth by Ms. Magazine - long-time allies of the feminist cause. i did a long exclusive interview with Ms. for this piece. choice quote: "No record label in hell would have ever supported an idea like this.” damn right. it's so important for people to understand that patronage made this happen, there was no other avenue. thank you, deeply, to all 11k of you. HEY HO LETS GO. MOAR ART. THANK YOU, MS.

‪listened to mixes til i collapsed, tried not to keep reading the news, went to jherek and mayumi’s house & watched titanic. wept. between me & mayumi, went through 9 kleenex. assigned metaphors. the front of the boat is attachment. the back of the boat is reality. the evil PR guy is trump. the rich millionaire dude is kavanuagh (or the koch brothers?). the mom is senator collins. the captain who wanders around listlessly is the non-voting american public. unsinkable molly brown ... i couldn’t think of anything good, was bawling too hard. the floating door was the metaphor for the movie itself: it only works for a few hours then you’re fucked. ‬ take it away internet
