This makes my eyes water.
It's a very odd feeling to feel so involved with what's happening in the world of the Dresden Dolls, and then the next thing you know, you're reading about an indefinite hiatus, and then you're reading about how you should have read between the lines of all the stuff you thought was all laid out on the table. There were hints, we suspected, we just didn't want to believe.
it's about time to share it with you guys, because i don't think, this time, that the truth will hurt.
The truth ALWAYS hurts.
And as I sit at my desk on my computer the little Yes, Virginia promo post cards on my wall are staring at me.
Illustrations of both Amanda and Brian with their fingers to their lips. LUNGS LOCKED, LIPS LOCKED JOIN THE RENAISSANCE over Amanda and YOU CAN STOP THE TRUTH FROM LEAKING over Brian.
If only the lyrics were switched around, it'd be perfect in this context, don't you think? Considering what happened here and on youtube.
It's much different KNOWING there's a hiatus, than having it be proclaimed. Obviously the Dresden Dolls have been on hiatus for almost a year and a half now, with the solo record and different band projects - so what the Dolls join together for a month to tour and then part, we knew it was coming. You'd be lying if you said you didn't.
I love you Amanda, Brian - as the Dresden Dolls and as talented musicians. You have loyal fans that will follow you WHEREVER you go, just don't forget why.
