Those who know me, know how much I love Amanda Palmer…… a lot! So anytime she pops on over to our lovely little island, I’m always first in line for a ticket! This time it was part of her Art of Asking book tour (and quite possibly last tour for a quite a wee while… oh noes!). If you haven’t read the book yet, read it. Just go. Go now. It’s fantastic. Book link here. TED talk link here. Go now. Enjoy.
The show was wonderful. Slow-paced… a little sombre with all the sad song requests… but broken up with bouts of laughter from the hilarious Janey Godley and the pregnant lady song!!… and she did play two of my favourites, Delilah and Coin-Operated Boy… and I got to sit on the floor inches away from the stage… oh, and I met a lot of wonderful music lovers, from one of my lovely little meetup groups (p.s. thanks for organizing that Dave!)… ooo and most exciting was when she read out my question!!! Teehee I’m glad the alien barcodes are the price of the baby!… and I am also now the proud owner of an Amanda Palmer nudie pen.
Yup, awesome show was awesome.
And if the show wasn’t enough I got to meet her at the kick-ass signing the next day in Waterstone’s. I don’t think I managed to say anything remotely intelligent to her, but I gave her a copy of my Coin-Operated Boy story, and my favourite hand-held silver brooch from that collection too! and she signed my box!!! I am now one happy jeweller!!!
Amanda if you’re reading this, I love you, I hope you like my story, and thank you.
And a bonus shot of the lovely camera-man’s feet!! Thanks!
p.s. if you want to know more about my Coin-Operated Boy piece, pop on over here.
On Saturday I travelled up to Dundee (foliage and all!!) for the first ever Dundee Wearable Arts Show… and it was brilliant fun!
I just wanted to write a quick post to say thank you so much to all involved. Thanks for picking my work to be featured in the show and thank you so so much to everyone who helped put it together, as well as everyone who came along for the night… it really wouldn’t have been a show without you!… and a huge thank you to my wonderful model! You were fabulous Charlie :)
I didn’t get a chance to take many photos… but there were loads of photographers snapping around! So, when I get the photo filled email I’ll post lots of pictures and blog properly about the show…….. stay tuned!!
Oh, and Mrs.Cupcake….. thanks for the roses! I’ll pop down to the shops and replace them just now!!!
Opened up my email box this morning to discover that my Faery Wings work has been accepted to appear at the Dundee Wearable Arts Awards Show!!
