Amanda's got a blog. If blogs could talk, it'd ask you to read it. It might even say "please."

know that Amanda has assumed responsibility for
https://www.reddit.com/r/amandapalmer/
(as a Patreon perk),
i wonder if restarting this thread over there might get more
people involved?

reaaaaally excited for piano versions of TTAT and BOTI. not super excited for TR - think amanda really overrates it, as it's just your average "life is crazy and difficult" metaphors, but eh - and also not super excited for JB, as it's a good song, but don't fully get how it fits on this super cohesive album she keeps referencing.

nervous about Machete, as i LOVE the "demo", which sounds fully finished. i don't want really anything changed, but i trust her

super excited, as well, for DT studio (sounds great live) and to hear VFJ for the first time ever!

We already knew about most of the songs (and i'm excited), but I'm intrigued by the fact that there are so many instrumental tracks connecting the songs (?) ... at the moment I cannot really imagine how that will work but I'm sure it will be awesome^^

some wheelchaired people can move off a chair better from one side than the other.
this is a design that accommodates both lefties & righties.

for all of you who just saw the d.dolls for the first time in London, across the fan time line to those who saw the d.dolls at their very first performance.  {thanx to Nadia Juhnke for reminding me of this & to the author for the best description of my favorite band EVAH!

I just realised I've been a fan of the dolls/Amanda for 12 years now...  I have seen Amanda numerous times (last week in Edinburgh actually) but this will be my first dolls gig.  I can't remember when I was this excited about a gig since I was a teenager!?  I am still in disbelief that this is happening.

The dolls were THAT important band for me when I was "discovering myself" in high school.  I was such a fangirl.  (i guess I still am?)  The dolls have always been in a special place in my heart now for over a decade.  It's nice to revisit the forum and remind myself of the impact the dolls have had on my life and in bringing this forum/community together.

I'll be there on the 31st, what songs are we hoping to hear?  I would really love to hear Glass Slipper.  It's an added bonus these gigs are over the Halloween period, I'm excited to see what they make of that...  the 18th year anniversary? wow.
glass slipper would be amaaazing... or bank of boston beauty queen... but i honestly doubt they will play them :-(
i personally hope they'll include some no virginia songs but i try to keep my expectations low^^
i always hope for Kalendra(sp?).
i've only heard it live once.

a fan since The Onion Cellar, Dec 2006,
.though I don't remember Kaledrina being played there.
hmmm you don't mean Kaledrina?
yes, Kaledrina is the song I always hope for.
i couldn't remember how to spell it.
2005 recording:

Lyrics (at least one version):
http://www.metrolyrics.com/kaledrina-lyrics-the-dresden-dolls.html
yes, I've heard this recording before... great song!! I didn't know it was part of the onion cellar...
yes, great song.
i've always wondered why Kaledrina didn't make an album/EP,
& is played so seldom.

i don't remember Kaledrina being played at The Onion Cellar.
i've tried to clairify this by editing above,
Oops, sorry, i misunderstood!

I just got back home from London... I still can't believe how good they were AAAAHHHH

as much my fault for not writing clearly.

yes, the d.dolls are very much better live.
granted how great the audio recordings & videos are,
i'm not surprised that many people do not understand
until they see them live!
that's true. I have seen them 3 times before their hiatus (and Amanda solo many times), but I felt like this time they were very hm...focused?! Amanda's voice was in fantastic shape and their long improv part during mandy goes to mad school was just so precise and thrilling. and they didn't seem to get tired at all during the 3 hour set.
I have definitely seen them sloppier (more tired? drunk? punk cabaret?) before, or maybe i have blocked out the memory of how good they actually are so i can cope with the fact that they quit OR they just improved on their own in the last couple years or all of that.

their performances since the hiatus have started have all been top-notch.
some beforehand were a bit below that.

i suspect most of the difference is due to their not being so tired from constantly touring,
and what the growth they have each had separately as artists & humnas.
