    Very nice.  Fearless and nice concept and execution.  Nice that AP does the nude part at the start and then strip back and stain to black..  It’s a bit gutless that the boys didn’t peel, too.

    I love how people say that using the naked body is “brave” and “fearless” in pieces of art like this, when the naked body has been the subject of art for–how many decades now? It never stops being beautiful, meaningful, and amazing. This music video was a fantastic example of the beauty and artistry of our bodies, and the stop motion was spot on. Amanda is a supremely brave individual in many aspects (shunning record labels, publicizing a method of music that spurns big companies and makes ART in a world where music is largely plastic-wrapped and soulless.) but not particularly brave in using her body as an art form–because that is what they are for. In other words, in a perfect world it wouldn’t be considered “brave,” “fearless,” or “shocking” just because she was naked, but rather because the ARTISTRY of the video was extremely brave and moving. I hope to see that day soon.

      Decades? You realise that when we have a lot of decade we can simplify them into centuries or even millennia, yes? I think you meant one of those.

    This woman is a annoying, talentless, idiot. Ugly too. Must be some sort of mass hypnosis.

    Don’t shave your pits! Don’t listen to the man you are beautiful pit hair and all! I always like how you manage to be artistic without being contrived or ‘douchy’, I just think you get it. I’m so glad you exist because your music has enriched my life :D

    I came into this amazing world of Amanda so accidently… “A Is For Accident”, I guess! I mean, I was once searching for alternative rock bands in Yahoo! Ask, when someone mentioned The Dresden Dolls, with the link of “Girl Anachronism” below his comment. This seems irrelevant to this wonderful song, but all I want to say is that, from the time Amanda (and Brian) wrote the songs for her first demo ’till now, she’s changed so much. I’m so glad to see that the girl that once sang “Thirty Wacks” with such pain in her voice is now writing so optimistic, funny and full of energy songs. And I’m changing together with her. I can’t read any guitar sheets either, I don’t have the least bit discipline when it comes to “sonwritting”… Amanda is always verbalizing my thoughs, she’s writing the lyrics I can’t write, she plays the music that makes me a better, a happier person.
    I don’t know who to thank for that… Her parents for giving birth to her? God? Amanda herself? Or that guy who showed me the direction straight to this Heaven?
    I just don’t get it.
    But, “I won’t try to explain what I cannot understand”.
    This is another little masterpiece by Amanda and her pals.

    What is it with you?! Everything you do is simply amazing! This video is very alluring and interesting, such a simple thought but I’ve never seen it quite this way before.
    Such a shame I don’t get to see you live. I’ve been a fan for years and years (actually don’t want to think about how many) but you’ve never visited Sweden since when I was to young to be allowed to go and see you…*sad*

    Thanks Amanda for speaking the truth through music once again. As a side note I must confess being a little jealous of Neil!

    Looking foward to your show in Vienna… for the last 30 years I refused to go to the place you will perform… for you, I will….hope you will continue to have a wonderful time with your husband and your work and all your success, a talented and intelligent person like you really deserves every little piece of it… not so sure, if it does much good to your music, but that’s one of the fucking problems with being an artist… see you on the 5. of November!

    Ms Amanda f’n Palmer: I’m old enough to be your old man, but I think you are amazing, come to DC. I love your paradigmatic shifting of things. God bless you, young woman.

    Very creative and well made video. And….. I love to see a REAL woman with pubes, not shaven and trying to look like a little girl.

    Her voice sounds so autotuned it isn’t even funny. even if it isn’t her voice sounds naturally auto-tuned which is just NO.

    What happened to good music? dubstep is horrid cacophony that penetrates my ear canel with irritating bass verbing.

      Not even a little auto tuned.
      I don’t even understand where this comment comes from.

    Lotte Lenya’s version is more restrained and subtle, and therefore more haunting and powerful. With this song, less is more. The subtext, of course, is that it’s all a daydream; Jenny remains subjugated in the shabby hotel. That said, thanks to Ms Palmer for keeping the song alive and for daring to try something different. More power to her!

    Hi Amanda,
    I’ve been working on a book of nudes from the work we did together. I’d love to talk to you about it when you are in town. Ive been watching your work and have been very impressed. You are doing some great stuff. I’m in Lugano, Switzerland for a week and will be back in Boston by the middle of the month.

    Ciao

    Larry
