A Serious Conversation With Amanda Fucking Palmer

Fame and the machine

It was such a mantra that fame will make you happy, but nowadays, more and more musicians are realizing that, no, as long as you make a living, and pay your rent, and hang around wonderful people, and do what you want, and make music without suffering, that's actually much more of a cosmic end. At least musicians are actually asking that and creating real lives for themselves instead of diving into the old-school cesspool.

That's my next album title! Amanda Palmer Presents Old-School Cesspool. It would be a nine-CD box set with extra cardboard packaging, and it will cost $900. [Laughs.] And it would be put out by Warner!

Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra play Terminal 5 at 8 p.m. on Monday, December 31.
