So, last night I went to see Amanda Fucking Palmer play The Academy, supported by Bitter Ruin, form Brighton. This was SUPPOSED to be Evelyn EWvelyn show, biut as Iceland has ran out of virgins and we're being surrounded by an ashen cloud all over the europe, choking on this black veil of misery etc... What do we get?

Evelynb Evelyn: The abridged show.

Complete with: Jason Webley skype'ing in, the entire thing being webast to more than 6000 viewers across the internet, being bombarded with ch0colate and feathers and Oh My.


i arrived early with [ profile] silicon_dragon Who, by the way, took plenty of pics and video, and staked out a decent spot on the floor. Lots of short kids inf ront of us *grin* I was twittering and texting, trying to convine people to show up. (it was sold out. then they removed chairs. i got my tikets form twitter *grin*)

AFP tookt he stage to introfduce Bitter Ruin. And gle eabpout how all this was being fdonew on borrowed equipment - where the laptop, camera, etc had come from: Epic.

Bitter Ruin - - had tweeted her if they could supporther in Glasgow. took a treain they could no0t afford to be there, anbd got stufed into her van as a result to play Dublin.

How to describe bitter ruin? I was a bit hesitant when this waif-.y girl and a guy in a suit with acoustic guitar took thye stage. What to expect?


(for those unwiling to watch the video - it starts all flotywhispyeeerie and then -ä Shriek. Georgia has an amazing vocal range and I can't say it too much - she is BRILIANT. (and Ben's not too bad either but sorry, this woman's voice completely andutterly blew. me. away.)

They performed several songs, severeral of which are on youtube by now - go look! :D

I was not one of the lucky 30 to granb one of their CDs. But I willa cquire one as soon as possible. Because I can't strress it enough, the voices, the deceptively simple melodies, lyical dissonance and hypnotizing athmosphere is So. Worth. it.

There was not that long betwreen this and AFP herself taking the stage. Jeans, t-shirt nad long white gloves - ROCXK AND ROLL! She was too busy to change into her stage costume but did we care? fuck no.

So - how to describe the show? there were dsrawn putppets, audirence volunteers, blood splatters, i got a faceful of twix from her, ther was - undeniable briliance. jason Webley bravely played his part via skype, and thre wqas an amazing chharge int he air.

They performed some of the Evelyn Evelyn songs - including but not limited to Elephant Elephant (which go ta bit strange..)You only want me cause you want my sister, their BEAUTIFUL cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart (!)... it was gorgeous. And then there was the Evelyn Evelyn 4magical eyes to answer Seirous Existnetial Wuestions. Such aS "Why is she so short?" "Are baboons evil?" and "If I unscrew my bellybutton will my arse fall off?"

Yeaah XD

Eventually the evelyun evelyn part of the show came to an end. *snif anidf* but, AFP still treated us to some beautiful fare. TOgether with Georgia, she sang Delilah. On her own, Astronaut, Oasis and GIrl Anahronism.

For the encore?


Amanda fucking palmer & Bitter Ruin: FUCK THE ASHCLOUD.

Beautiful song, with lyric hgetting fucked up, people shrieking and singing along, and a haunting heartfelt sentiment - godammit, she should be with her love, dammit! (who is an award-.winning author and therefore uses the word "Ashen cloud" just so you know) and yes it is me shouting for Ben to depants

Guys... I am bored with my hair. I wantto do SOMETHING with it.

right now? My hair is aboiut shoulder length and pretty pretty pink, with a fringe.

I am deating someting rather radical. Like, Iunno, shaving the sides, leaving the fringe intact? or something else that would actually make my hair more flairtastic.

I am sick of the fact that I jsut have nothin FUN about my hair :(

Yes, it is bright pink. but htat jsut is not as fun as t used to be.

Suggestions? What should I do with my hair?

for reference's sake, this is what I look like :P

Ways to start your time back at work productively? Somehow get yourself locked out of every single system you have because your passwords have either expired or you are a victim of the cliché changed-the-fucking-thing-just-before-you-left. Occasionally with a does of “remember just after you send off a long-ass complicated request for change”

*shakes head*

Oh, and add to that t being surrounded by bosspeople, apparently. (Assistant team leaders behind me and next to me, manager’s door behind my back and my team leader right in front of me. *facepalm*

In other news.. on the taxi to the way to work they had a guy from Microsoft talking about windows vista. Apparently, the guy was a geek cause he was wearing a Microsoft badge at the lobby waiting to be led to the interview... now what DOES that make certain friends of mine, who can MacGyver hair ties out of their badge cords when they have a hairdo failure at D? *g* (I still want my hairband, back, bitch)

Also, backing April I had a bit of an argument re: NIN & Foo Fighters. Said SOMEONE said that no way was NIN supporting anyone. Well, like I texted said someone… I saw posters for this thing. NIN Listed as “Special Guests” –and we know that is the PC way of saying “support” *grin* Excuse me while I gloat just a teensy weeensy bitsy here:P

(No idea why they would do it, but hey, whatever floats their boat. )

I am amused by the fact that I am being such a fricking walking dress code violation again. Trainers on my feet, lovely combat trousers, a t-shirt proclaiming my love of music in biiiig pink letters, Iron Maiden hoodie, blue hair, and cherry-pattern emo socks. And a pirate wrist warmer on the left one, to boot.

(Bosspeople don’t seem to care at the moment, tho :Pand the ATL next tome is using messenger. *g* she seems to be weasy to get along with. And I wonder, sheloks familiar beyond work.. Fellow [ profile] fatshionista?)

Also: SO ME! Even the blue hair.

That should be all for now.

ETA:Oh,andthe microsoft guy?> Also when asked "Is VIsta the best opertating system out htere?" said "Well I would have to argue so..>" *snicker*

TTOday's plan, nothing but net herew at home and music. lots of good music. listening to all the CDs I have gained altely.l Like the Era Vulgaris one - I like these guys.

MY ensiferium shirt is lovely and snuggly. and, a size M. FOr osme reason, beinbg able to wear shirts int hat size makes me happy. Now, I dunno what size "girlie" shirt I would have to wear but gys' size M fits me jsut fine,.

Incidentally, my dreams are bizarre. in addittion o everything else that was tgoing ojn last night, I had a lovely dream involving snuggles leading to making out that then turned CREEPY as in, i realize "hmm, this has to be a dreajm" and then.. yewah, suffice to say I don;t wnat to talk about it. *shakes head* but, until that point, was nice. Not very likely to ever atually HAPPEN but was nice :P

Incidentally, since some peeps have wondered - I did locate some photographic evidnece, a few yewars old, of TDS. here, pics 100_499, 100_500, 100_1526 - the arrogantt-looking one with the long hair and the eyeliner.. *shakes head* No longer does eyeliner, tho, as far as I can tell.
