Kiana Firouz Needs Our Help

I have very romantic images of myself. I am very heroic in these images. I always stop and help the woman getting mugged. I never look the other way when someone is in need. I am Robin Hood and King Arthur and Frodo all wrapped up in one. I keep that image in my head […]

Church of the No Fucking Way

Many, many, many years ago it is widely rumored that L. Ron Hubbard said the quickest way to a million dollars is to form your own religion. No one can say he didn’t succeed beyond his wildest imaginations (and L. Ron had a wild imagination). Scientology is all over the world and boast a very […]

They have spent the last 11 years trying but I think you could argue […]

Don’t Pet The Orcas

I do not want to appear insensitive. I feel extremely bad for the trainer (Dawn Brancheau) and her family after the tragic death at SeaWorld. It is an awful thing but I really can’t get too worked up about it. When you are dealing with wild animals, they sometimes act wild. I mean we named […]

Amanda Palmer So Close You Can Touch Her

I had a plan for today’s blog, really I did. When I finished up yesterday’s I was armed with several points I still wanted to make. I then spent the rest of the night reading blogs, articles, and talking to people. This caused an immediate implosion of the original blog in my head. I bled […]

Amanda Palmer’s Pile Of Pain
