as some of you have seen unfold on here, my book - “THE ART OF ASKING” - is officially DONE. inspired by my TED talk and also sort of a memoir, i’ve been doing almost nothing else since january…but after months of intense writing, editing, and reading aloud for the audiobook, it soon finds its way to you and i’ll embark on a little signing tour in support of it. i can’t wait for you to hopefully read (or listen).
it’s about…everything.
and it’s COMING OUT on NOVEMBER 11th (in hardcover, e-reader, and audiobook formats).
and HERE IS THE COVER. i think it’s beautiful.
if you wanna know how i ended up naked and getting my body painted by a bunch of LA artists (with allan amato shooting the whole thing), i wrote a blog about the MAKING OF the cover. it’s HERE on my site.
p.s. as mentioned, i will be doing a HUGE BOOK-SIGNING TOUR in the states this fall. i’ll announce dates alongside pre-order info for SIGNED copies, SOON via THE GOLDEN, HOLY MAILING LIST and my blog. if you don’t want to hold out for a written-on-by-me copy, pre-order info is up now at amandapalmer.net. more soon. LOVE.

Dear Lioness,
This is my soulmate.
We are both very new to the coffee club.
Ive always wanted to post a nude on tumblr, just to do it, because, you know, it is Tumblr. but my boyfriend refused for that to happen. So one day, I came across your page which was filled of positive energy with all types of stories and beautiful pictures, i fell in love.
I had to convince my boyfriend into letting me submit a picture to your page, but then i thought, we should take a picture together. i showed him your blog, and he thought it was very interesting. We especially loved the story last week about the guy climbing at the top of the mountain and then stripping down with his friend and feeling so free about it. That story just made me want to climb a mountain and do the exact same thing.
But, here is our picture that we came up with. We know the theme is sports, we wouldve went outside and played basketball naked but i still live with my parents, and i dont think they would like that. So heres my lovely Referee sock i wore for Halloween. hahahaha. Dont worry we will get better at this.
Thank you for creating this beautiful blog,
-TheWeirdNudistt

Welcome, to both of you, from CoffeeClub. This is just an astounding picture. I’m so glad you came across us and shared us with your boyfriend and he agreed to take part in the photo. Regardless of theme this is really what Coffee Club is about - reaching out and touching people - in person or otherwise. I’m looking forward to so much more from you guys. 

I love this picture.

Madonna, turning 56 in style. Sometimes, it STILL just blows my mind that that’s actually her given, birth name.I just rediscovered how much I love the Justify My Love video last week.

I hate this.
I hate this almost as much as I hate that Snicker’s street harassment video.
Like wow, you scared the shit out of these people, made them think that the more vulnerable of them was being abused and humiliated. And then you made them feel like idiots for reacting to something that they genuinely thought was horrifying.
I’ll never understand the appeal of pranks. Laughing at someone for reacting to a vulnerable situation will never be funny to me, and I don’t understand why the fuck other people think it is.

That’s the exact reaction I had to this, and basically every other prank video ever made. Ugh.

I bought a somewhat see-through tank top the other day. Apparently it’s too much for my very conservative and repressed 7 year old daughter to deal with.

Elise: Mom, that shirt is SEE-THROUGH. If shirts are see-through, people can SEE your bra! Or your boobs! Or your (tears her own shirt off, points at chest with both hands, starts loudly singing and dancing) TINY LITTLE NIPPLES, TINY LITTLE NIPPLES, OH YEAH, OH YEAH, MY TINY LITTLE NIPPLES, OH YEAH..”

And then she danced off down the hall, topless, to sing at her horrified brothers.

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.
Absolutely wow.

I’m going to cry

that is absolutely horrifying.

HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING!

Why am I finding out about this now??

"Foolish creature of the flesh. I am ancient. I am forever. I have seen Empires rise and fall. I have seen entire species wither to cinders. I have seen the depths and the cold and the abyss that lay beyond. You are no more a nuisance to me than plankton. You are so insignificant, and I am so exquisitely eternal that I am the closest thing you will have to a God."-What I imagine the jellyfish would say to a human

DON’T

GET ME STARTED

ON THESE MOTHERFUCKERS


That is horrifying.

If that’s scary, than say hello to my little friend, the “Stygiomedusa gigantea.” This guy has only been spotted 18 times, and filmed only twice.Its is also about 6 meters long and about a meter wide. Sadly it doesn’t have stingers, but it will still eat. It kinda just engulfs all it’s prey. I’m not real sure.Aren’t Jellyfish so great? Because I think they are evil.

These things are legitimately terrifying.

Not scary (to me), just amazing. I would feel awed and honored to come across one of these…

Part of one of the five lunches I packed today (Isaac’s choice).

How I looked on my way to counseling after dropping 5 kids off.

My own back to school shopping: jeans, pants, 3 shirts, 2 bras, underwear x 5. I now have a Lane Bryant card, for better or worse.

Took everybody out for pizza before driving Annie to derby.

Took everybody but Annie around the neighborhood, which featured a dead snake.

Not shown: homework tedium, chore frustration, husbands arrival.

I seriously need a shower.
