We wish you a merry Christmas, a cool Yule, a perfectly lovely Englishmas, a very late Chanukkah, an only slightly late Solstice, a hot and happy Kwanzaa and a glorious Draw On New Eyebrows For Chthulhu Day.
Frankly, pretty much anything you are celebrating, we are for, as long as it doesn’t involve being mean to other people. And to prove it we offer this photo to the world, taken by kylecassidy.

history time! new article about a strange, beautiful, secret underground theater in downtown boston. if you know boston, you’ll be delighted…it’s right next to boston common beneath the steinert/steinway building (next to emerson college and the theater district).

the http://www.wecb-news.com/the-secret-underground-theater-on-boylston-street/

the extra-special part: i filmed a video here, and never really discussed it (it was back when i was crazy busy with the whole Who Killed Amanda Palmer tour and book), but we managed to broker a deal with the people who ran steinert pianos (there was a fan behind the main desk) and they kindly let me, michael pope & our film crew sneak down to the abandoned theater to part of “ampersand” there..for free. for that, i’m still thankful.

if you’ve never seen it, it’s one of my lesser-known videos, but i love it.

another factoid: the piano that i’m playing is the old creaky steinway i grew up on, still in my parent’s living room in lexington, MA. it’s one of the two videos i’ve filmed in/at my folks house (the other one was…well, maybe i’ll post it tomorrow, since i’m feeling nostalgia-y). 

for now, here’s “ampersand”:

She took me here when we were first dating. How can you not fall in love with someone who sneaks you into mysterious abandoned underground theatres?

"You kept talking," said Amanda. "While he was taking our photo. I knew you’d be talking in the actual photo."

She was right. She normally is.

Oh well. Houdini the Spiegelman cat is a star.

literallyadeadperson asked: Do you still have your Amanda Palmer tattoo flash designs? I'm thinking about your sweet The Killing Type one...

kateordie:

Yes! I intended to do a series, but I never got past these two.

I suppose if I’m now running a blog about kissing Amanda Palmer, I should start with a picture of her kissing this legendary guy.

Photo taken by our friend Peter Straub, at the restaurant we were in. We decided we wanted a photo to put up and tell the world we were engaged, and it was this one…

Probably the best thing I’ve ever seen on the internet. Certainly the most accurate.

i was gifted hand-knit neil gaiman and amanda palmer puppet likenesses in perth by a gal named krystel rose hewett (@zendarenn on twitter).

the detail, from neil’s black removable jacket to my kimono and obi, is quite stunning.

notable: full pubic hair and boobs on the amanda palmer, yet neil’s black clothes are absolutely irremovable.
so many levels.

neil is in london. i haven’t seen him for over a month.
so today in sydney, i decided to make use of the knitted puppets and blog a picturebook commemorating our relationship.



THIS IS NEIL AND AMANDA.

image

AMANDA IS MORE OR LESS NAKED AND NEIL’S CLOTHES DON’T COME OFF BUT NEIL’S FINE WITH THAT.


AMANDA LOVES COFFEE AND NEIL LOVES TEA.

image

IT’S OK. THEY LIVE WITH THEIR DIFFERENCES.


I WISH I COULD PLAY MUSIC FOR YOU BUT I CANNOT THIS INSTRUMENT IS TOO LARGE.

image

IT’S OKAY, AMANDA. NOT EVERYTHING WORKS OUT THE WAY YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD.

HOW ABOUT I READ YOU A BOOK.

image

REALLY? YOU’RE GREAT.


SOMETIMES IT’S FUN TO TAKE A BATH.

image

NEIL YOU’D ENJOY THIS BATH SO MUCH MORE WITHOUT YOUR CLOTHES ON.


SOMETIMES WHEN NEIL IS SAD AND TIRED, HE LIES IN AMANDA’S LAP.
image

SOMETIMES WHEN AMANDA IS SAD AND TIRED, NEIL RUBS HER NECK.

image

NO AMANDA DON’T DO IT! YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR.

image

SOMETIMES AMANDA JUST WANTS TO HUG HER PILLOWS AND IGNORE THE WORLD AND NEIL TAKES IT AS A PERSONAL REJECTION. HE IS SO JEALOUS OF THE PILLOWS EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE INANIMATE.

image

BUT THEN OTHER TIMES THERE IS LOTS OF SEX, AND EVERYBODY’S HAPPY.

image

HEY WE HAD PUPPET SEX!!!!!!!!!!

image

SEE? I CAN LOVE YOU AND ALSO THE PILLOWS.

LET’S SPOON. GOODNIGHT. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

image

I LOVE YOU TOO.

GOODNIGHT.

GOODNIGHT.

HEY.

BEING PUPPETS IS THE NAZ.

YEAH.
