amandapalmer:

sometimes i see a community-made video for one of my songs and it wallops me in the face. this one did. it’s by a director named taylor dolan (she’s on tumblr!). it’s for The Bed Song.

i saw the link on twitter just as neil and i were about to board the plane home to boston from DC…i sat there before take-off watching it with headphones on my iphone. neil was munching on a salad, then turned to me and my entire face was scrunched and soaking wet and i was still blubbering a little. it’s that good.

this song gets me every time anyway. but this video….fuck. this girl deserves an indie-oscar.

the other wonderful thing about the video is that it was made on @hitRECord, a site that encourages creation and integrated ongoing support for artists…which of course i love love love. 

they call themselves an “open collaborative production company” and they share revenue made on projects with their artists 50/50. if you’re a maker or a patron, go check it out…it’s really interesting and it may be a fun place to put your work and find art-friends.

here’s the link to the original video on hitrecord.

Dreams made true… 
On the cards for 2013 is my first New Year’s Resolution…
To sit in a darkened cinema at an inspiring festival & watch my first feature play to an audience who are touched, moved & inspired… & hopefully thrilled & freaked out too!
Inspired much?! Hell yes!

Smiling on this eve of the New Year… Everyday with each box unpacked this #seattle apartment feels more and more like home!!! This morning, I got to wake up to see some of my fav trinkets & momentos from my life to date… Like the statue @withlovefromshay gave me, the mini Oscar from Gem, the engagement hair fascinator my mum bought for me in the Eumundi markets, @cameronsstone’s puzzle, a dawn picture of bondi bathers, a stowaway Chili prop from the Think Tanc Offices on the Bunyip movie film set, the wedding present wrapper with paua shells and the pottery Matera vista momento I bought in Italy on our EU adventure of 2008… Wow, what a rich & wonderful life I’ve been lucky enough to lead so far. 2012 has been a rollicking ride full of adventure, creativity & partnership. Much #love & #gratitude to my hubbi, my friends & family and the cast, crew and supporters of the Bunyip Movie (many of you are friends now!). You guys made 2012 one of the best years of my life! Bring on 2013!!! Inspired much?! Thankfully, I am. MS xxxoxoxoxxx
