Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra - Trout Heart Replica.

And killing things is not so hard
It’s hurting that’s the harder part
And when the wizard gets to me
I’m asking for a smaller heart

Speaking of Bucky Barnes feelings. I was on YouTube earlier trying to double check that it was the 101st he got accepted to—without actually starting the movie because I don’t know how to stop watching it once I get started—and I stumbled on a playlist someone had created for his character. This song was on it. I remember hearing her play this live for the first time all on her lonesome at The Social with Neil in the wings, and I remember how it made me feel. So yeah, canon accepted.

A few weeks ago in London Amanda showed me this video in email. She’d just got it from filmmaker Jim Batt. I watched it with the artist Judith Clute. When it finished, we made her show it to us again, and then again. We laughed and gasped in the same places each time.

I love stop motion, and I love imagination, and I love that it’s a rock video that’s fresh and imaginative. AND ALL STOP-MOTION. 

The Guardian said,

There’s probably a metaphor in there somewhere relating to the open relationship Palmer has with her fans, but it also displays her willingness to bare all for her art. This feeling of being comfortable in her own skin can be seen in the stop-motion video – premiered here exclusively – for the excellent Want It Back, in which the lyrics to the song are scrawled on her body (bed sheets, walls and iPad). Talking about the making of the video, Palmer says: “I’m so comfortable being naked at this point that I almost forget … I’m also proud that that video has nudity, but it isn’t sexual or erotic … it’s using the body as a raw canvas, which I love.”

Filmed by Australian director Jim Batt, it’s a brilliantly intimate and anarchic representation of the song, the line “it doesn’t matter if you want it back, you’ve given it away” made even more open and honest.

one by one, i wish i could kneel before every single artist who has moved me deeply and gently rip my chest open for a few minutes, show them all the various pieces they’ve healed and fixed, watered and tended and fertilized without their knowledge, all the pieces of their music and art that have become me, that have shaped me and turned me into whatever i am.

I just realized I hadn’t posted this here yet.  It’s video I took of Neil Gaiman reading from Who Killed Amanda Palmer at the AFP show on Sunday.  It’s the story that accompanies the photo of the jewels spilling from her mouth.

(I’m also hoping to have video of Amanda performing ‘Imagine’ up soon.  I need to find a program that will recover it from my camera without dying, though.)

good god, i love being read to. i also love when two people who i admire a lot (neil and afp) start to gush to me about someone else i like an awful lot (jennyyy!) and then overshare to my friends when signing our things. all around good times!
