Guess who is feeding Amanda Palmer and Vermillion Lies backstage on Thursday night at State Theater? Me! In true Amanda style, she posted a blog post that said something to the effect of, ‘we’re touring, we’re hungry, feed us’. So I replied to the email address given and typed up a few simple, healthy veggie menu options. A couple days later, I was told I’m on the guest list and when to be at the theater with the grub. Pretty cool, huh?
Don’t hate on me though because if you’re going to any of her shows, you can pretty much always meet Amanda afterward, get stuff signed, tell her you love her, want to have her baby and so on. She tends to stick around for that very purpose and is just as wonderful as you imagine.
I planned on handing out some illustrated haiku love GingerDead-style like Jim and I did at the Dresden Dolls show last year. The problem was I’ve been too broke to get postcards printed and by the time money came in, there wasn’t time. So, I turned the artwork above into these rad oversized bookmarks that I’ve been printing and cutting for the last couple of days. I think it’s kinda nice to hand out something sorta souvinier like and relevant rather than my comic characters this time around.
So, how about this week we roll with the theme? How about some haiku responses that answer the question Who Killed Amanda Palmer or even how or perhaps a haiku epitaph for her tombstone? Use your twisted imaginations and let Amanda feel the love…sniff…i think it’s what she would have wanted….double sniff….
