Lots of stuff…
The album “officially” comes out in North America in a about an hour (EST)…there is a massive mailer going out tomorrow early with all sorts of stuff (an awesome new contest, NEW TOUR DATES, and much, much more) but some of the stuff in there is time sensitive so here’s a mini preview from Amanda…
CHANGE YOUR FACEBOOK/MYSPACE STATUS IN HONOR OF WKAP
if you’re truly feeling the love, change your myspace and facebook status to “KILLED AMANDA PALMER” (so it will read “(your name) killed amanda palmer”) as soon as you read this. hopefully you’ll find some of your friends-people have already done this themselves…lets take over! ALSO, you can put up an away message on AIM (or ichat or adium or whatever AIM client you use) saying %n killed Amanda Palmer. — it will change depending on who IM’s you!
GET AFP UPDATES STRAIGHT TO YOUR CELL PHONE!
technology, we luff you. we are launching a new TEXT MESSAGE UPDATE that will give you up-to-the-minute happenings in amanda-landa.
this is how we’ll let you know about really cool stuff happening during the tour. the danger ensemble and i plan on taking FULL advantage of this when we’re on the road and bored (flash mobs and unwarranted video shoots at your local denny’s or sainsbury’s: absolutely not out of the question). the future is now. technology is literally going to bring us all together. i am exciiiiited.

A LIVE WEBCAST 9/16 IN CELEBRATION OF THE ALBUM/NEW TOUR!
To kick-off the ticket pre-sale, Amanda will be hosting a LIVE video web-chat on Tuesday September 16th at 10:00pm Eastern time (check out http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ if you need help figuring out what time that is for you). You’ll have the chance to ask Amanda questions about the tour, life on the road, or anything else you’d like to know — consider this a new and technologically advanced version of “Ask Amanda” some of you have seen during shows. We will post tomorrow as to where the chat will take place (it’s a secret ‘till tomorrow), but you can submit your questions ahead of time by emailing: email@example.com with the subject line “ASK AMANDA LIVE WEBCHAT 9/16” (please try and include that subject line so that you’re not flagged as spam as you’ll have a better chance getting your question read if you’re not…spammed)
More tomorrow, including a TON of North American tourdates.
Be excited. And spread the word.
