Do you think you'll do any more projects/tours with the GTO or is this it?

What would you consider to be your most successful album, purely in terms of sales? Also your least successful?

Hello, Miss Amanda!

Not sure if you want to answer this, but I want to ask so here goes:
The symbolism you referred to in Neil's new (fabulous!) book -- the parts that were about you and made you do the V8 thing on your forehead? Are you willing to share any further info about that? I would love to gain a greater understanding of the book.

Hugs from Canada!

So, I saw a hint that there may be a solo gig in Tel-Aviv... fucking exciting, but, what are the odds that you'll do a GTO gig as well??

Any more work with Ben Folds in the future?

8 in 8 was fantastic.  As was Who Killed . . .

Would love to hear you two play more together.

Hi there,

What did you think of Jon Ronson's recent article about his time spent with you?

Any chance you'll be popping up to the Edinburgh Festival at any point this year for some ninja gigs?

Thanks.

well, we have the tour in australia & new zealand coming up (sept) and then again in november we'll be in europe.
after that...i'm going to take a break and it's honestly anybody's guess. if i were a betting man, there's not way i won't be playing with all of these people again in one format or another. but i'm not planning a big GTO tour after this novemeber shit wraps. i'm going to write.

that's REALLY hard to judge.
the dresden dolls debut has technically sold the greatest # of copies in stores - about 150k, or more - but that was back then before digital went wild. so it's really hard to say how many people have heard, say, the new album if you count streaming and youtube and burning and sharing and all that.

i've stopped trying to keep track.

right?

right.

What can I do to make your upcoming London gig extra-super-specially-awesome? (Besides BEING THERE and covering myself in glitter.. which is currently The Plan.)

Would you kickstart an album again or you'd feel that the press would be all over you?

You seem like the kind of person who could have been in my college German language classes.  In my opinion your awareness and favorable exploitation of "Brechtian" as a cultural thingie is what sets you apart from other singer/songwriters.  Am I overthinking this?
