« Reply #15 on: April 11, 2009, 06:45:26 PM »

Due to the Shadowbox's 20,000 character limit this Q&A session has been split up into two parts.


(Note - Amanda started this Q&A on her Blackberry phone in the van before switching to a computer at the venue. For now this will only have the ANSWERS from the Blackberry Q&A part as Twitterberry, the Blackberry application Amanda uses to access twitter on her blackberry, does not show which tweets Amanda is @ replying to. I will edit them in here as I get them, please bare with me.)


[EDIT - wow, can't believe I'm able to actually find these Questions. After this I'm going on a twitter hiatus, fuck you twitter! It's a love/hate relationship. Haha this is taking over two hours to do, but at least I'm listening to some new music  O0.]



TUESDAY MARCH 24, 2009 - Boredom in van on the road with @vermillionlies spawns a spontaneous @amandapalmer twitter Q&A
Part 1 of 2
(This I believe is the first Q&A)

do you get the same amount of profit off online purchases as purchases at the merch booth at shows?
@Leerie good question. Whether you buy shirts at shows or online, I make approx the same $. Very different from CDs&vinyl, which you(more)

Amanda says:
(...more) should ALWAYS buy at shows or direct from my webstore. I make much more money from the those sales vs. buying @ bestbuy/walmart.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383227185

How about purchasing CDs/vinyl from smaller, locally-owned shops? Do they cut you any more than large chains, or is it about the same?
@mspotamus buying in indie shops is heaps better than from evil bigboxes, but buying direct pays me waaay more. It cuts out all middlemen.

What about buying through Amazon?
@lovehound buying through amazon is the equivalent of a bigbox. Anyplace the label supplies cds to another outlet, I lose profit. (More..)

Amanda says:
....The reason buying is better at indie/local shops is purely karma. I don't make any more $ than if you bought the same thing at bestbuy.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383309106

(Question unable to be retrieved due to user's account being protected/locked updates)
@miklos believe it or not, i see no profit from itunes or any other legit digital outlets. not telling you to download shit for free. but.

Amanda says:
....Also its important to know why this is the case....jason webley or @zoecelloe DO make profts from itunes b/c they're independant...
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383349883

Amanda says:
I am on a major label trip. This means they will take all of those profits until they pay themselves back the money they spent on the dolls.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383355800

Amanda says:
This is getting ridiculous, I should write a blog about this, its too complicated to squish into 140 character blocks. Meanwhile...
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383359894

Amanda says:
I'm so fucking bored in the van. Anyone have any questions that can be answered in 140-character blocks?
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383363161

does it work the same buying concert tickets from your site instead of ticketmaster
@cobra427 its better to buy your tickets direct through my site than through ticketmaster. But there's not always the option.

(Question unable to be retrieved due to tweet being missing/deleted)
@HeatherAdlerMSN here in the van of love we've been listening to the lisps, the shins, new orleans bingo show and shenendoah davis

will you have free tickets for st pete show on thurs?
@stalkingcat yes. I'll be giving away tickets every show day for the rest of this tour....

where is brian?
@polkadotfaerie brian is currently in nyc and rocking out with world/inferno friendship society. Amazing band, go see them.

how many miles are on your van?
@riskybizness there are currently 94,951 miles on the bio-diesel friendly @vermillionlies van of love

[note- original question tweet exists in two parts]
Since you're on the subject of album sales, would you consider putting out a "tip jar" at your shows, a'la Danger ensemble...
...for any of us who pirated the album, and want to make good with AFP?

@Rev_Sputnik just you wait. I have a fantasy that my next tour will involve a very creative tip jar element for all those who have pirated.

Amanda says:
You guys will never believe this but abc news in new york literally just called to interview me about twitter. This shit is on fire.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383549538

When will tickets go on sale for the LHS spring show and how can the general public get them?
@Shakti672 tix for the neutral milk hotel play at lexington high school with afp won't go on sale for a few weeks. Get on mailing list....

I'm an editor at MSN...we should do an interview about Twitter over Twitter some time. It will be totally meta.
@HeatherAdlerMSN totally meta! Email beth to set up an interview: beth@amandapalmer.net

Buying direct from the artist always makes the artist more money, but best buy is good for spreading to a bigger audience.
@mikalg soon, when I write the musicbiz blog to end all blogs, I will explain how everything works from agents to publicists to money.

How did you originally meet Annie of St. Vincent? It was a bonny surprise to see you on stage together last year.
@matthewglidden I met annie of st. Vincent through our mutual friend (and my soundguy) dave "psycho" hughes about 2 years ago.

Amanda says:
Ok, gang. Everybody tweet it: @amandapalmer is taking live questions until about 4:30 EST because she's really bored in the fucking tour van
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383634723

Amanda says:
RT @Dissentertainer @amandapalmer money quote for ABC: "It's not necessarily healthy to know 50,000 people" :-) http://tinyurl.com/c2qdqn
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383640140

Amanda says:
In fact, EVERYbody needs to be on the mailing list. Fuck twitter, fuck myspace & facebook. I need your email. http://bit.ly/afpemail
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383642063

Will there be another Album released soon? :)
@hom0milk i have to wait and see if I can get dropped from my godforsaken label. I will find out in mid-june. Then I will make plans.

I sometimes forget that mailing lists still exist.
@lollerskating DO NOT FORGET about the importance of The Mailing List. essential. twitter, facebook: these thingsare fleeting. Email stays.

What's it like working with Pixie Vision? I have the opp. to buy a photoshoot with her soon.
@prismkitty she's fantastic to work with. its a personal style question. Her aesthetic has to turn you on. Look at all her stuff and decide

What is your definition of "art" OR how do you feel art connects people with each other/with themselves?
@Thatcrazywyles "art" is anything you call art. Love works the same way, kinda. The minute you start defining it, you've missed the point.

Amanda says:
all you asking "when are you going to play in...."?....sign the mailing list. I sometimes give updates on the blog before I confirm dates.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383680996

how come you sing with a brittish accent?
@tommysinartra if it sounds like I sing with a brit accent, blame robert smith, depeche mode and my other heros. Its awful when I'm drunk.

Biz question: Do you know what your breakeven point is for a gig? Do you split the door? Or play for a flat fee? Or...?
@cjplaysbass can be a door deal, sometimes flat fee, or a combo. Sometimes that flat fee is $1k, sometimes (festivals) its as high as $15k.

I'm about to go to the library, can you recommend a book for me to check out?
@_rubberducky_ read "the unbearable lightness of being" by kundera.

how is your foot these days? (Saw you in October when all crutched up.)
@skittledog little foot's been sad, healed but then in australia I started limping. It needs a real rest, off the road. Thanks for asking.

what was your favourite puppet/stuffed animal/toy as a kid? still have it?
@sylviaaa_k nothing got as much serious love as joey (nee gabriel herbert) my cabbage patch kid. I still have him and he still smells yummy

A fun one: If you could be raised in any family of celebrities (from the Kardashians to the Manson cult), which would it be?
@helloxjed if I could be born into an art family? Maybe the coppolas. I'd kill to be the progeny of lou reed and laurie anderson.

how come i can't find any of the dresden dolls music videos on youtube?
@jinx81558 all dresden dolls have been lifted from youtube because of a penis war between youtube and marner music. See my blog for details

i get tons of velvet underground allusions in "blake says". intentional?
@katy_cakes yes, intentional. There was a verse of david bowie references too, but I cut it. How many can you count?

another student (Hanah) wants to know if you have ever fallen off the stage. It's our lunch break and we have joined the tour.
@csdaley I have never fallen off stage but my seat has collapsed beneath me....several times. Sort of funny but also not.

boycut, bikini, or thong. which is best, andwhy?
@doll_revolution I personally prefer boxerbriefs. For myself AND my loved ones.

[note- question asked in two tweets]
What do you think Eraserhead represents?
Or means, rather.

@xironsiderx I think its dangerous to spend time interpreting the work of @david_lynch. Just take it in,no questions. For real. He'd agree.

which of your songs do you enjoy the most?
@its_confusing depends what you mean. There are ones I love listening to and ones I love playing. Half jack is one of my all time faves.

how long have you been playing piano? Lessons vs self-taught? First song you learned?
@captainkimothy I started playing piano when I was three. My mom sat me on her lap and I copied her hands. I never learned to read music.

You, Zoë, and Jason should do a version of La Valse d'Amélie.
@frankispeace funny you should say that. Me, jason and @zoecello are planning a musical jam-out week this fall. We will webcast.

I'm curious, why do you feel that way? Because it's his work and his alone to interpret?
@xironsiderx you can feel free to interpret, but yes, I don't think his work works that way. Its like trying to nail down a dream.

What do I tell people who ask about the "WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER BOOK" we did -- release date and how to preorder?
@neilhimself The afp/neil gaiman book will be ready for pre-order within next fewweeks. SIGN THE MAILING LIST at amandapalmer.net to (more)

Amanda says:
get the word, since we're only printing 10k copies. And neil, I want a better question. That was boring.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383847476

When you're on tour, do you get to do what the fuck you like, or does the label try and organise everything?
@ForsakenDAemon the label actually has nothing to do with my tour, except occasionally setting up promo/radio and press. Touring is all me.

is it weird when people dress up to look like you at shows, then try to make out with you?
@Justdusted the funny thing is that making out with someone dressed in a black dress & striped tights is like kissing myself in 2005. Hot.

Any piano players you admired growing up?
@KoffeeGuy you know, I had very little concioussness of other piano players as a kid. The only one I looked up to was thelonious monk.

Mac or PC?
@PirateDave89 are you kidding me dude. Mac. Mac. All mac all the time. Mac party.

Amanda says:
kim from @vermillionlies is going to tweet a picture of my current position from her iphone

***********************************************************************************************

[note- question is in 3 tweets/parts]
don't you think twitter is a bit creepy? i read tweets (?)from demi moore and now it's like: well, i always suggested that...
she is a little dumb and now she proofs it to the whole world and can't take it back! and almost is doing it! i don't like it
almost everybody of course

@Seeraeuberoma yes, twitter is totally creepy. I also thought myspace was creepy. People in the 1940s also thought phones were creepy.

what was the name of your old college radio show? Did you use a DJ name?
@sourlullabies my old radio station was WESU, 88.1fm in CT. I was a dj there for 2 years. Someday I'll dig up old recordings and stream.

if you had to be one, would you be deaf or blind?
@BananaPeelVinyl I've often wondered this. I think I'd rather be blind. Then I could be like ray charles or stevie wonder. Not beethoven.

at your Seatlte concert, I got on a mailing list. Are there multiple lists for different cities?
@corprew there are different mailing lists for every city, but usually I address them all at the same time.

what is the last thing you want to do, right before dying?
@AnneAnnebelle right before dying? I'd like to hold the hand of someone I love and say nothing.

Amanda says:
my blackberry just died but is now resurrected.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383962520

Amanda says:
Kim posted photo of right now at @vermillionlies
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383965366
[***note: @vermillionlies' twitpic is posted above between the *'s]

okay. A not-boring question. Why make art?
Thank you for your more interesting question, mr @neilhimself. Because if I didn't make art, I'd be trying to get love in much scarier ways.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383976166

are you wearing your fucking seatbelt?
@corsa180 yes I am wearing my fucking seatbelt for fucks sake.

What sort of yoga practice do you manage while touring?
@MarcLehman my yoga often suffers on tour, but I often drop in to local studios I find online. If I'm good, I roll my mat out wherever.

Amanda says:
Currently listening to betaband. Amazing.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1383994323

[note- this question exists in two tweets/parts]
You mentioned you met just Tori Amos. As you are both pianists, how would you describe the difference between your styles?
By which I meant, "you just met Tori Amos". And etc.

@tiffanymaxwell I could go on about afp vs tori amos.I think you can hear the main style difference is that she comes from classical world.

Amanda says:
Kim of @vermillionlies is now officially fielding twitter questions from the backseat of the van on her macbook. Go go go.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384015450

Blackberry... where is the iPhone?
@PCDS I had an iphone for one month and I hocked it. I couldn't type as fast as on blackberry. But, camera was better and I miss the apps.

When do you ever sleep? :)
@bekitty its not that I don't sleep, its that I don't do anything while I'm awake but twitter anymore.

(Unable to retrieve question as user has since protected/locked their twitter account)
@brainy I'm using my blackberry and kim is using a verizon wireless modem

As a huge Ben Folds fan (like, his BIGGEST fan), how much were/are you inspired by his music?
@mrseb I wasnt actually an educated ben folds fan when we met. I think that was useful for being able to work with him, I didn't fan out.

who is driving?
@lanceperkins zoe from @vermillionlies is driving and jaron (my soundguy) and kim are in the backseat

Amanda says:
My thumbs are sore
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384052155

Does it weird you out to know there are at least probably 50 unshowered and naked people waiting on every update from you?
@mitrepeak are you kidding? I'm in alabama & just went to a gas station with t-shirts for children saying "I am a miracle of god" on them.

whos ur favourite artist in the charts right now?
@ismiseciara I don't know who's in the charts now but I can assure you I ain't heard of 90% of it. I like that coldplay song from 2003.

where do you want to retire to some day?
@whittles half the year in new york city, half the year in melbourne australia, baby.

Hey AFP, do you think you'll ever turn to acting? I could see you doing a Björk film like Dancer in the Dark...Rich Eno x
@RichardEno I've thought about doing filmy things, but its kinda boring, I'd rather do stage. But only short runs of something awesome

Amanda says:
We're almost at the venue.....
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384092172

(Unable to retrieve question due to user changing their account settings to protected/locked updates)
@markwforbes the bible belt is scary and the gas stations ominous. But the people are fucking nice & the shows are loud and outta control.

do you think there are limits to what can validly be considered art? if so, what are they?
@billyocracy again, art has to be subjective. The minute you define, you kill. So answer it for yourself and ask your friend. That's it.

do you ever have to block creepy people on twitter?
@BeckySmithster I don't block anyone on twitter. Anyone annoying just gets ignored.

when/where was the first time you felt you had really connected with an audience, weather it was 1 person or 1000+?
@krystlewallis the first time I felt connected with an audience was playing with brian in early dolls days. Before that I was terrified.

Amanda says:
We have arrived at the workplay theater in alabama and I have to load in. But we've gotten so many questions (thousands, literally) that....
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384138174

Amanda says:
....We're going to do a live webcast from here at 7 til 730 after soundcheck. Partyontheinternet.com. Send questions, we'll pick and choose.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384143154

Amanda says:
I fucking love the future. Fuck everything. Fans => twitter => artist => twitter => fans. End of story.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384156632

don't stop twittering, you make my day.
@RANDALLLLLLLLLL must stop twittering. i have to eat. i really shouldn;t eat and twitter. but it's SO MUCH FASTER now that i have my mac up.

When you are staying at hotels have you ever stolen, towels, teapots or copious amouts of biscuits and tea?
@Starlighthair can't stop. eating&twittering. it's like drinking&driving. somebody help me. the answer:YES. i steal towels & all bath items.

TUESDAY MARCH 24, 2009 - Boredom in van on the road with @vermillionlies spawns a spontaneous @amandapalmer twitter Q&A
Part 2 of 2


Amanda says:
doing interviews backstage & eating guac. ben folds, on phone yesterday, on artists drawing personal lines: "afp draws hers at the toilet."
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384387511

hardwood floors or carpeting?
@vtmnwtr hardwood floors, and rug when necessary.

album by somebody else that you wish you wrote?
@vtmnwtr for surely: songs of leonard cohen.

why haven't you done a tour for No, Virginia... will you in the forseeable future after solo ventures?
@LabyrinthQueen we actually did do a short tour in the states for "no, virginia"....you missed it.

is there a chance of you touring with the danger ensemble again in the future? i so fucking loved those guys!
@violentlights there is a huge chance that the danger ensmble and i will work together. when i have a budget. watch out.

Amanda says:
RT: Kovacs88@amandapalmer The world will end not with a bang, but a tweet
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384407558

would u like to record with regina spektor someday?
@ismiseciara i love regina but i think we're too the same to write together. like cake on cake. singing together'd be rad, maybe we will.


How did you first discover Twitter?
@pinzim i first discovered twitter through @neilhimself. blame him.

Amanda says:
i should correct that. @neilhimself was the one who made me really start going mad. i already had an account, but i was barely using it.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384428168

Amanda says:
obviously, @neilhimself has ruined my life.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384429614

How to you manage to still put emotion into songs that you've played a million times? I respect this about you.
@keepitgee good question and the answer is that as long as people are feeling, i find it easy. when the audience is dead, it's impossible.

Amanda says:
ok. enough. done. really truly stopping and going to eat & soundcheck. that last round was like whacking off right after an orgasm. dumb.
http://twitter.com/amandapalmer/status/1384444880

Amanda says:
ONE more thing: the twitter interview at http://bit.ly/F9Gdt is one of the top rated clips in australia today! go watch it & help it along.

Okay every twitter Q&A session has been posted. Every question is there unless it was removed by the twitter user. Some accounts changed their settings from public to protected updates - so there are a handful of questions I didn't have access to read. If you are any of those users or if you are following them, please post the questions in this thread.

Also, let me know if I missed any questions, answers or Q&A sessions. For now I'll edit the 3 we have up to look cleaner (aka remove all the "@amandapalmer's" from the questions.

I love this idea.
I always played my own little game with these Twitter Q&A's and just tried to guess the questions that were asked based on the answers. I'm pretty much just too lazy to search everybody's Twitter to find the original question

Thank you muchly

This is awesome, especially since I'm not a big fan of Twitter (even if I can see myself becoming slowly addicted).

Thanks for doing this!

I thought that I would continue this because I'm bored and need entertainment, If Hayley has no arguments :)

THURSDAY 2nd JULY, 2009 - BORED ON PLANE @amandapalmer Twitter Q&A "airplane ask amanda"

Amanda Says:

ok why fucking not. it's time for #AAA ... "airplane ask amanda". you go girls. maybe the questions can be spatially-related.

What's your favorite Liz Phair song?

@physigory favorite liz phair song, tie: "chopsticks" vs "flower" #AAA

do you drink when you fly?

@ShannonXL i usually drink when i fly @ night, (esp if no gig next day and even then...sometimes). i'm not a daytime drinker...not yet. #AAA

May I ask what song for the music video? :D

@desired_waste we did a spontaneous music video for "if you want to sing out sing out" by cat stevens during beach gig. it was amazing. #AAA

Who is your favorite Twin Peaks character?

@One_Bloody_Poet ooooh, favorite twin peaks character: definitely the log lady. i LOVE the log lady and her infinite wisdom. #AAA

Amanda Says:

RT: @amandapalmer is doing a spontaneous session of "airplane ask amanda" while she flies (with wireless) from LAX to seattle

how fulfilling do you think twittering on the moon would be? #AAA

@balanceisgood twittering from the moon could be satisfying. i would like to be the first moontwitterer. while eating #moonfruit. #AAA

what's your favorite part of flying in space? least favorite?

@BetterL8ThanNvr worst part of flying: feeling constricted & contained. favorite part of flying: being offline. oh wait....oh fuck. #AAA

have you checked the wing of the plane for gremlins?

http://twitpic.com/92vzs - @juepucta there are no gremlins out there. but the wing does have a suspicious-looking american flag on it.

Ok then. Mile High Club. Yes or No (as a concept, not necessarily there and now)? ;-)

@Siduhe closest i got to joining mile high club was w/ a strange scottish man...i was 15 & flying w/ my parents to europe. don't ask.#AAA

also, if I'm permitted a 2nd question, which one do you think's better: tommy or the wall?

@quadropheniac oh, dude. i think "the wall" wins over "tommy" by leagues. but it's a personal choice...apples and oranges for sure. #AAA


would you be terribly upset if a fan who will be out of town for the show were to come to the airport to greet you? :D #AAA

@BetterL8ThanNvr only if you also rope in 826 other girls to meet me there & make them hold signs that say RINGO! JOHN! PAUL! GEORGE! #AAA

Do you enjoy flying? Or does it make you nervous?

@ironicpink i really love flying. it calms me. i read & catch up & am usually glad there's no wireless. this is freaking me out. #AAA
about 10 hours ago from web in reply to ironicpink

is the wireless free? Is there free booze to help with the twittering from space?

@clinton_o no, unfortunately virgin charges you $9.95 for the privilege of tweeting from space. i am drinking bad coffee. #AAA

what does Amanda take as carry-on? 1st class or coach? What's the movie of choice playing?

@gothmogg23 amanda fucking palmer flies economy unless some festival is paying for the tickets & willing to spring for first class. #AAA

today my female cat turned out to be a male. so i need a new name. do you have any suggestions for me?

@oingloin hmm. female cat is male, eh? must be a sad little cat penis. i suggest you name him "ron jeremy"...to boost his pride/ego. #AAA

The level of determination @amandapalmer shows to engage directly with her audience is fascinating me. Post-Mystique Pop Life.

@warrenellis dude, you should try twittering from a plane. it changes everything. really. twitter becomes profound and meaningful.

How did u meet Neil?

@Cladeedah i met neil through our mutual friend, amazing @jasonwebley, who happens to be the reason i'm flying to seattle right now. #AAA

that's not the mile high club, dear

@JasonvonEvil oh. wait. what's the mile high club? you mean it's not when you fuck on an airplane? i've had it wrong all these years? #AAA


I do nothing on planes except drink and decide which other passengers I will use as shields when we inevitably crash.

@warrenellis HA. then you would really love the screaming 3-year-old next to me. he looks very well-padded.

favorite murakami book?

@acautionarytale i've only read "the wind-up brid chronicles", years ago, but i fucking loved it. must read more murakami. #AAA

Tell the kid his new name is "Pre-Crash Ass-Cushion."

@warrenellis no, i will not tell the kid that, i'd ruin his life. but i'll tell his father.

what's your seat number?

@AustinBloggy i'm in 21a, the window seat. sitting next to me is a guy playing iPhone games and a guy typing on his blackberry. #AAA

@warrenellis i had always assumed celebrity would drift further from the strictly human, but @amandapalmer proves that wrong

@saintneko you know, i have this theory about celebrity. you can run from it screaming or you can run headfirst into it. i think that ...

Amanda Says:

... it's safer to run into it. like turning and accelerating into a curve when drag-racing. your audience should be a friend, not a foe.

how did you get so crazy smart with yer event ideas? (congrats on the extrasupercool writer boyfriend guy by the way)!

@pathimself i come from a performance art/theater background & i used to be a street performer. doing weirdo events is Home for me. #AAA

Amanda Says:

lots o' questions about what i'm listening to. answer: sound of the airplane. i don't ever really use headphones/ipods, unless jogging. #AAA

will Kaledrina ever make a comeback? It's so underrated! One of my favorites.

@ashleybb "kaledrina" will probably make its way onto a record at some point. i'd love to record it with brian. the drum part is ace. #AAA

if you couldnr tweet on the airplane what would you be doing right now

@iamtheampersand if i weren't tweeting on the airplane right now i'd be a good little AFP catching up on her 300 unanswered emails. #AAA

cont...

@iamtheampersand (so thank you for the excuse to fuck off and not work - i am justifying this as an IMPORTANT SOCIAL EXPERIMENT). #AAA

Where is my book of dead Amanda's?? Any news on when they will ship out to the pre-order peeps??

@tracie_mae business, yep. the WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER/Neil Gaiman books are gong to ship out around july 16th. will notify. #AAA

Can the twitmob beach party surprise surpass the club/festival tour model? Since she's generously fielding ?estions, let's ask @amandapalmer

@lunggwai well, twit-flash-gigging is kinda unwieldy & weather, size, security would eventually become an issue. but i'll never stop. #AAA

Why you do not use headphones? It turns the music into a more introspective and intense experience!

@Gold_Bug it's not that i have anything against headphones, i just don't like listening to music during most parts of life ....
about 10 hours ago from web in reply to Gold_Bug

Amanda Says:

... i used to have a walkman glued to my head when i was a teen. nowadays i find that i can't focus if there's music playing ANYWHERE. #AAA

Dream duet live with any artist living or dead: what song, what artist? Time machine is available!

@casket4mytears i wouldn't mind jamming a duet with john lennon on "mother". #AAA

Do you know when the Neo2 mags with be available on the webstore? Also, what do you usually drink when flying at night?

@cyndaelle neo2 magazines will be put on the webstore as soon as we have them at the actual warehouse. i made a new rule about that. #AAA

you're going to seattle..any chance you will be at @theteganandsara 's concert at the showbox on july 3?

@JoeYTeacups the @theteganandsara show is at EXACTLY the same time as @jasonwebley's show tomorrow, but imma to try to find them :) #AAA

Do you ever have that moment on an airplane when you think, by god, this is against all laws of nature?

@midnight_faerie yep. i am still astounded that planes fly. and i have a ritual every time i take off, when i remember to do it ...

Amanda says:

...which is to decide that i'm totally fine with crashing if that's what the plane decides to do. instant zen mortality check-in. #AAA

to settle a disagreement, what is missed me about? Also, its beautiful in seattle today!

@corrie_ what's the disagreement? the song seems so obvious to me. #AAA

worst part about being famous?

@chaynicole there isn't really a "worst part" of being famous, its like asking what's the "worst part" of being human. all relative. #AAA

Are you reading a book? Not, you know, at this specific moment in time... and if so, which one?

@Tlunden i just finished reading "wetlands" by charlotte roche (AMAZING) & am about to start digging "house of leaves" by danielewski. #AAA

Some of your favorite ever gifts from fans?

@kalinkabeek my favorite fan gifts have mostly been food, especially the feasts while on the road this past fall w/ danger ensemble

do you have any dreams/nightmares that you experience repeatedly?

@hig1278 i used to have a recurring dream (often nightmare) about being submerged in a body of water while my stuff floats away. analyze?

Are you coming to WorldCon in Montreal this August? #AAA

@madelineashby lots of people asking that....no, i won;t be at worldcon this summer. i'll be in russia/europe all of august. #AAA

Amanda Says:

we are descending..... and they are asking me to turn off the twitter love faucet. last calllllll #AAA

wann kommst du wieder nach deutschland? any plans?

@oingloin ach die deutschen!!!! ich werde in septemebr mit neil da sein aber weiss noch nich ob ich ein richtiges gig spielen werde...#AAA

who is your favorite tweeter? celebrity or not.

@sierraanderson favorite twitterer. gads, it's got to be @neilhimself and i think i'd say that even if i weren't his special friend. #AAA

Which classical piano composer is your favourite?!?! Chopin?? Beethoven?? Debussy???

@Sakalela the flight attendants are coming!!!! save me. bach. totally bach. #AAA

Amanda Says:

http://twitpic.com/932io - and thus ends #AAA. peace out all y'all. o hai seattle.
