What made you decide to have awesome eyebrows? (from Natalka Alissa Xavier)
i shaved these suckers for the first time when i was in college (around 21)...i had just come back from living abroad and studying in germany and had a run of the mill nervous breakdown, during which i decided to shave every hair on my body except my pubes. including eyebrows. i was all roget waters.

Thanks for getting this started. Amanda added some more answers and answered some more questions. Here's the full text:

What made you decide to have awesome eyebrows? (from Natalka Alissa Xavier)
i shaved these suckers for the first time when i was in college (around 21)...i had just come back from living abroad and studying in germany and had a run of the mill nervous breakdown, during which i decided to shave every hair on my body except my pubes. including eyebrows. i was all roget waters.

sorry, hit send. anyway....while the eyebrows grew back, i squiggled them in with liquit eyeliner designes because i was a weirdo. and ... they grew back and that was that (the hair, however, took about two years to grow back).

then about 5 years later, i was in the early days of the dresden dolls, and brian and i decided to go to a marlene dietrich ball. there was a costume contest. marlene had no eyebrows. i shaved them again to look authentic. i lost the contest (that whole night was fucked) but i was now, again, eyebrowless.

so i squiggled them in again, expecting to do that until they gre back. but this time (maybe because i was a little more social and open-minded than i was when i was 21)...people really admired them and commented on them everywhere i went. vanity won. i kept them. that was, holy shit....like....13 years ago.

i wonder what the fuck my eyebrows would look like if i grew them in. urban myth says they'd be like ///||\\||/\/ all fucked up. we may never know. neil recently told me that he thought my eyebrows made me look old. i was like FUCK YOU DUDE.

next question. this is fun

What made you decide to come to Facebook? (from Eddie Wyatt)
a variety of things.
first of all: i was tired of feeling out of family loops. my family (eeeek) communicates on here, and i started feeling this sad feeling when i would hear my family members say "oh yes, we watched that whole event play out on facebook" and i'd be like 'why didn't someone call? or email? or...tell me"?

also: i run a business. i think tumblr and twitter are amazing for certain things, but i think there are just MORE of my people on facebook right now, engaged, than most other places. and i don't have the right team to come in here and do business for me. so doing it myself is, for now, the way to go. i can already smell my own demise. i spend WAY too much fucking time on the internet as it is and i can already tell this is going to SUCK ME THE FUCK IN COMPLETELYYYYY YY AHSD AJDHASJ FWGFJDGHJAHSDGFJASDHFA

what was your inspiration for coin operated boy? (from Keira McMillen)
it was actually inspired by driving by a coin-operated laundromat in the south end of boston, seeing the sign, and getting the phrase "coin operated boy" stuck in my head attached to a really catchy hook. and i thought: that's a great song idea. it'll be about someone who wants a total lack of intimacy: the perfect partner. it's not, and never was, about a sex toy.

I've added this Q&A to the "twitter Q&A" thread in the General Discussion board of this forum, and just posted the second FB Q&A Amanda did yesterday.
http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=8206.msg482668#msg482668

From here on, let's keep these Q&A's together in that central thread - while named for the twitter Q&As, I think it's cool to keep 'em all together in one place, as an on-going document of the social media interviews :)
