Amanda was recording this morning. I was writing and doing a skype interview in a corner of the studio. And then she asked if I’d like to sing a chorus…

An ice bucket challenge. Mine. In a novelty bowtie. On the beach. With Death…

Neil Gaiman donates to ALS, does the ice bucket challenge without wasting water, and gets naked because his wife didn’t.

Well, yes. But I’m not going to mention those things just to get people to watch it. Oh, wait…

…and if you are wondering why Amanda would write a book about asking, this is why.

Amanda’s book cover.

It’s a remarkable book. It’s partly a memoir, partly an extended meditation and guide to asking for help in life and on the internet, and, which came as a bit of a surprise, there’s an awful lot about me and our marriage in there too.

Lots of ordering information at http://amandapalmer.net/ and NSFW blog with pictures of the cover body painting at http://amandapalmer.net/blog/20140820/

me and him. i must admit i miss him at the moment.

I miss her so much right now. It’s been a long hard ten days: The Jordan trip would have been easier with her by my side, but I was also glad I was alone — all of the refugees have left loved ones behind. 
We get back together on June 2nd. Not that anyone’s counting…

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?
