Amanda Palmer – The Power of Power Failure

the first winner of the power failure songwriting contest, from NORWAY……is: Thomas Herlofsen!

out of the first hundred or so submissions that i’ve been able to listen to, this one – “later i told you” stood out as a clear front-runner…..the lyrics didn’t just paint a simple picture, they painted a picture beyond the picture, o top of the picture…..and as soon as i heard the second verse, i was SOLD. (you’ll see why, my god).

read more about the process and listen to the recording HERE.

...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog ( - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
