Amanda Palmer in Berlin 2012 by Nuflicks

 

There were no formerly heroic times, and there was no formerly pure generation. There is no one here but us chickens, and so it has always been: a people busy and powerful, knowledgable, ambivalent, important, fearful, and self-aware; a people who scheme, promote, deceive, and conquer; who pray for their loved ones, and long to flee misery and skip death. It is a weakeing and discoloring idea, that rustic people knew God personally once upon a time - or even knew selflessness or courage or literature - but that it is too late for us. In fact, the absolute is available to everyone in every age. There never was a more holy age than ours, and never a less. - Annie Dillard

Der Journalist Kolja Reichert beschreibt das besondere Engagement der Musikerin 2.0 zutreffend:

 "Will Amanda Palmer ihr Publikum mobilisieren, braucht sie kein PR-Büro und keine Konzertagentur. Über Twitter lädt sie zu Strandkonzerten mit Gruppenfoto oder zur Spontanparty in einer Stripbar. Einen Pressetermin in einem leeren Kaufhaus verwandelte sie in ein Gratiskonzert für 350 Fans. An einem Freitagabend im Mai entstand bei einem Massenchat ein T-Shirt-Spruch. Palmer gestaltete direkt am Laptop die Druckvorlage, ein Freund setzte einen kleinen Online-Shop auf. Am Ende der Nacht waren 200 T-Shirts verkauft. Am Tag darauf weitere 200. In ihrem Blog zog die Sängerin Bilanz: „Einnahmen durch Twitter in zwei Stunden: 11 000 Dollar. Einnahmen durch mein Major-Soloalbum dieses Jahr: 0 Dollar.“ So klingt die Verzückung einer Künstlerin, die ihre Macht entdeckt – und vorführt, dass die Zeiten, in denen sich Künstler von Managern sagen lassen mussten, wo es langgeht, endgültig vorbei sind."

Who Killed Amanda Palmer, was released on 16 September 2008


Ten Quick Questions

Friday, 11 September 2009

 

1. Which book are you currently reading?
The End Of Nature by Bill McKibben

2. Do you smoke?
Only when drinking.

3. When was the last time you got angry?
A few days ago, at myself, for planning poorly.

4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Probably at last week's video shoot seeing Neil Gaiman in the Bowie mullet wig.

5. Was there a movie where you could not bear to see the end?
In that I didn't WANT it to end, or I couldn't BEAR the actual ending? If the first.... "Wings of Desire". I want it to go on and on. If the later.... "Requiem for a Dream". Good GOD.

6. What character would you have liked to have played?
Hm. The balleria girl, Coquette i think her name is, in "King of Hearts".

7. "Law & Order", "Special Victim Unit" or "Criminal Intent"?
I've only ever seen "Law and Order", and only once. So I suppose my vote is void.

8. Who do you currently have a crush on?
I have a permanent crush on Jack Nicholson. Even old and fat and grey. I love him.

9. What's the best moment of your day?
All of it, baby. I'm not picky.

10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
Mrs. O, or possibly the new one I've just written, called "The Bed Song."
