Amanda Palmer – It’s My Post; I will Write What I Want (Note- Rated R)

Okay, I tried to do it in the title, but let’s do it very clearly right here:  This particular post can be read without any problem by  most anyone.  However,  IF YOU DECIDE TO WATCH THE LINKS (ESP. THE SONGS), then be advised of possible profanity and/or nudity.  There, that’s for those of you who just can’t deal with that.  The TED video is what you will want to watch, I imagine.

I was buzzing surfing playing looking searching the Internet today ( well, yesterday, now) and came across an older vid I had already seen of Amanda Palmer.  Now, there are going to be those of you who say, “OMG, not Amanda Palmer!” (maybe even not so nicely).  There will be those of you who scream, “Yeah!  Amanda Palmer!” (Not so many).  And, there will be many of you who will say, “Who?” (a lot of those, I imagine).

Amanda was someone I met online (just me, she had little to do with it).  I saw her in a TED video.   During THIS VIDEO, she spoke a great deal about the power of not worrying and simply asking for help.  She also spoke highly (more here) about making songs free and asking for help from fans.  If you do nothing else in this post please WATCH THE “THIS VIDEO” above.

I followed this by listening to some of her songs:  Pick a Couple (The words speak volumes, whether or not you like them or even her)

Then, to top it off…  Well, here’s the story, in brief:  She did a concert in England.  The “Daily News” (Tabloid) covered the story and said very little about it except that her breast managed to fall out of her top at one point.  Instead of getting mad, she did the following at another concert (I believe it was the next one): RIGHT HERE!

So, she has my vote.  She has rhyme and reason to her songs; she isn’t afraid of much of anyone/thing; and, she is attractive (had to throw that in there).

I like a lot of her ideas.  The big one about music being free and the groups/singers being supported by gifts from the fans is wonderful (Watch the TED talk).

This is a post in support of what she stands for and who she is.  I only wish she would see this and make a comment!!!

Namaste,

Scott

    Really interesting Scott, I hadn’t heard of her, but I’ve now got a lot of respect for what she’s doing – and love the daily mail song!
