Citações Amanda Palmer

„It makes me very sad when I find out that people who never hear our music think that we are really about image and not about substance.“

—  Amanda Palmer

As quoted in "Getting Real With Amanda Palmer" at AfterEllen (18 July 2007) http://archive.is/20120728142340/http://www.afterellen.com/people/2007/7/amandapalmer?page=0,0
Contexto: It makes me very sad when I find out that people who never hear our music think that we are really about image and not about substance. … I can understand why you might get that impression if you've never heard the band's music and see a photo of a guy and a girl dressed up in crazy costumes and think, "I don't need to pay attention to that — why do they need to wear those crazy clothes?" I think that's why we've constantly toured. Our live show is so intense and so substantive and emotional that it's sort of the price we have to pay for being so flamboyant — we have to prove ourselves as a rock band.

„I really like Neil a whole, whole, whole lot, and I really do not want to marry Kevin Smith, even a little.“

—  Amanda Palmer

On a humorous twitter courtship by Kevin Smith, as quoted in "Amanda Palmer Freaks Out With Evelyn Evelyn" by Scott Thill in WIRED (29 March 2010)
Contexto: I really like Neil a whole, whole, whole lot, and I really do not want to marry Kevin Smith, even a little. Do you remember the Trojan War, dude? I’m just saying. Can you imagine what a world war between a Neil Gaiman army and a Kevin Smith army would actually look like? Their fans are serious. I predict there would be lots of very high-fallutin’, toilet-based name-calling, confusing many. And possibly foam swords swinging at hockey sticks. Actually, that’s bullshit. There’s no way anybody would leave their Twitter feeds for long enough to pull out a foam sword or a hockey stick. Maybe it’ll be the world’s first full-on digital war and people will just head over to Second Life to duke it out. I hope Neil’s army wins.

„Rock needs theater, rock is theater. We just go through different eras of guilty admission about this.“

Contexto: Rock needs theater, rock is theater. We just go through different eras of guilty admission about this. Having risen with The Dresden Dolls in the heyday of The Strokes and The White Stripes, everyone was looking at us as completely misfit theater dorks. But it’s really encouraging to see a more theater-dork wave of bands like The Scissor Sisters, Antony & The Johnsons, CocoRosie, Patrick Wolf and even Arcade Fire and Decembrists becoming popular. The dress-up freaks are coming back, and it’s wonderful to watch.

„I write a lot, but it's not all fantastic. There's plenty of terrible crap. We work on a few things at a time, let some things fall away, make changes.“

—  Amanda Palmer

Interview in Only Angels Have Wings (April 2004) http://onlyangels.free.fr/interviews/d/dresden_dolls.htm
Contexto: I write a lot, but it's not all fantastic. There's plenty of terrible crap. We work on a few things at a time, let some things fall away, make changes. We certainly have enough for the next album, which could take at least another year to come out.

„I still get laughed at but it doesn't bother me,
I'm just so glad to hear laughter around me.“

—  Amanda Palmer
