Man, I really love this video.
I love that they are pissed that the cops didn't let them keep the money they stole from girl scouts.


I mean...come on. There's a reason God invented prostitution. Figure it out.

I couldn't relate to very much at all in that piece, except the part where her husband picked her up in a limo after she played a house show and they went to the Ritz-Carlton. I call that shit "Tuesday."

Remarkable how somebody who up until recently had irritated me in a small, indie way is now irritating the world.

FM Steve is mentioned and one of his posts directly linked to. The piece is written by Jon Ronson, who has previously investigated mental illness, NWO conspiracies and political extremists. Should FM Jon acknowledge how deeply he mines the PRF for his subject matter?

Just read this (on analog paper -- much warmer etc etc).

Confirming the obvious:

I don't do poetry.


On her troubled home life:

It was a house of no metaphors. I had very literal parents and I wanted to survive with metaphor and art, and there was a real sense of shame around it.... There was a real judgment cast in my family about me wanting attention. It wasn't that my parents didn't encourage my artistic pursuits – they did very much – but they didn't understand them.


On the kickstarter fuss:

It hurt my feelings in an unprecedented way. I have never in my career embarked on a journey towards controversy.


The bigger picture:

I was only put on this Earth to connect with the people who were attuned.


Sounds like the fans near Philadelphia got their moneys worth, though.


Yeah, I was just thinking about this piece, and how her whole ordeal is that she's just not used to being criticized. Like "I didn't court controversy"= "my practices have never been scrutinized before, why should they be now?"
I am a weird recluse only here for sex.

PRF Short Fiction Challenge

The staff weren't giving me the things I needed to do my job effectively and give the kids their money's worth...it wasn't too hard considering the concert was only $5

I can't tell Wisconsin and Minnesota apart that's why I can't tell St Paul is in another state.

I was never very good at geography. Amanda is a product of NYC and Boston but had heard from a cartoonist friend her hubby lived near Minneapolis but actually he is in Wisconsin. He (my friend) at least had the excuse of being English and not to have been to the area a ton of times.

St. Paul and Minneapolis, the "Twin Cities", are one metropolitan area in Minnesota. St. Paul is also the capital of the state of Minnesota. Wisconsin is a different state about 30 minutes away from the Twin Cities.

Fun fact, I have lived in 4 different state capitals cities.
