when someone great eats vegemite + NZ SHOWS ARE ON SALE!
December 24, 2010
hola my comrades….
casey and did this last night:
she was telling me about it on a walk home from somewhere, and i tried to impress her by learning it fast and uploading it to youtube within 15 minutes of getting home and emailing it to her, but then we decided to a version TOGETHER. the funniest thing is that she thought this song was about something that it wasn’t about, and i believed her version for the first few times i heard it…
and and maybe i still do.
songs are anything you want them to be.
in other news, i must say, this “reach out for merch designs” idea is coming along nicely…(a bunch of people are pitching in ideas for the “vegemite” design, and ALL will be credited, a true merch-collaboration)…this design is by arielle:
the holiday insanity is reaching fever-pitch….
even though you’re all probably busy, the ideas rolling in have been brilliant, thank you folks so much for pitching in time/energy/humor….
keep it coming.
* if you’re an artiste, send your hi-res files (links to the work or attach to the e-mail, no larger than 10mb please) to OZmerch@amandapalmer.net – again, the sooner the better, but deadline is monday at noon.
* if you have just ideas…of something YOU might like to see at the merch table (mugs? coasters? vibrators?), hit me in the comments HERE, or tweet at me with the hashtag #OZmerch
….and as for Kyle Cassidy’s idea for an AFP fridge magnet doll with velcro merkin accessories….FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, i wish we had time to make those.
and the australian illustrator sarah beetson created this sketch (still not colored in) for PILLOWCASES….what a lovely place to rest your head at night, no?
can’t wait to see this finished….
meanwhile…..i have taken to drinking more powerful concoctions to get me through the season.
first, two (all ages) dresden dolls’ shows in cali (my last shows in north america for 2010/the last dolls’ shows planned right now)…both are VERY close to selling out so GET IN ON THAT SHIT IF YOU PLAN ON COMING!
...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog (http://www.brainpickings.org - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
