I didn’t really see what all the fuss was all about when it comes to Amanda Palmer. She used to be part of The Dresden Dolls, which I never got into either. So I decided to give her an honest try. I’d have to say I dig her general style, and covet her wardrobe, though I’m not too sure about the drawn on eyebrows. (or are they tattoo’d?) and she does get bonus points for her excellent taste in men…. she did marry Neil Gaiman after all. I love the fact that she is unapologetically herself and to hell with everyone else.
Anyway, I’ve given her a shot and the overall impression is she’s okay. I don’t love her music, but she has her moments. I’ve posted a few of them below, many of which are absolutely NOT SAFE FOR WORK so you have been warned. She strikes me as someone who’d be fun to hang out with for an evening, but would soon exhaust me. Maybe you’ll like her, maybe you won’t. Let me know in the comments.
