hello dear ones. TL;DR….patreon-funded writer jack nicholls and photographer gabrielle motola’s third tour-reportage piece, published via medium, is now out. it’s called “the art of asking about abortion” and it’s here . it is about a thirty-minute read. the words and the photos are heartbreaking. it is based in ireland. read more on patreon .
hallo comrades of ye olde punk cabaret…. the dresden dolls made this for you. it’s a cover of “i’m going to go back there someday”, from the muppet movie. you can download/stream it on bandcamp and all track $$ will go to the boston resiliency fund, which is helping locals affected by covid-19. read more on… Read more »
today marks the historic official re-opening of the shadowbox forum, a gift i’ve been wanting to give myself and the community for going on, oh, five years now. as approved by the patrons during this webcast , i’m going to use patron dollars to pay for the forum, and that’s why this post is an “official thing”. the team… Read more »
this moment had to happen like this. all of us, writing. making the unclickable heart more clickable, more thingable. this is good. this is good. read more about the unclickable here .
we hired a small, pro film crew to capture the footage of me doing this solo/ audience singalong of ”beds are burning” at hamer hall in melbourne (this was jan 22nd)….. but the film clip became a seedling afterthought…the fetal roadmap to where we wound up, with a whole 8-song record with fancy collaborators. time rolled… Read more »
hallo loves. IT’S OUT! fastest record in the west. when the earth catches fire, the artists catch fire just as fast. this whole album was conceived, arranged, recorded, mixed and mastered in about two weeks – in response to the bushfires raging in australia, and the government‘s lack of action regarding the climate crisis. read more on my… Read more »
it was our divine luck to have a portuguese film crew in the house the night of the braga show. especially one who understood how to connect the dots of life and art. who knew? i never in a million years would have imagined that THIS was what the result of my night in portugal… Read more »
i am incredibly proud of jack and gaby, AGAIN. they’re both truly powerful artists in their own spheres and capturing this tour was a hard task. i love jack and i love that this is the approach he took for piece number two: to talk about the climate, about hope and hopelessness, to go deep… Read more »

neil gaiman is tricky and weird. i’d been thinking about doing more animation projects for the patreon, and i thought this might be the perfect one to try, given how visual the subject was. i want to remind you that this is where your patron money goes….to pay this whole, huge team of animators, artists, filmmakers,… Read more »
i am a woman who has a long track record of doing things my own way, including in regards to the press, and i have very little clickbait caché. then it all became obvious. we are the media. we can do it ourselves. so for the past several months, this patreon has spent tens of… Read more »
at the london patron pub gig at the end of august, i saw my dear friend maxim play this very hilarious song that was written by HIS cabaret friend sarah-louise (who wasn’t there). i said “we should record that and make a ridiculous video!!” because patreon, we could, and we did. it’s called THE FRENCH… Read more »
