if they could listenand not just hear your lyricsthey would understand
Blog like the mountains,for all to see, all to feelonly some to climbThat’s a great idea! But I’m glad you’re (probably) not very serious; I’d miss your writing too much. Maybe only half your blogs?
I also would miss your writing a very large amount. Probably more than a person should. But the fact that you wrote a haiku about a camera phone makes me smile.
That entry is very similar to one a friend of mine made not to long ago. She shared a similar sentiment about posting in haiku form and followed it up with one about how James Dean makes her cream her panties. Small world, eh?
Oh! My friend had this to say in response to your entry:"dear amanda p,technology sucks we shouldsing karaoke."
i caught you in milwaukee and floated through your too short set. the heat and scenester kids were well worth getting to be there to see you guys. i have been for you for years and just now found the diary. haiku away, i have some back reading to do.
I don't have a camera phone.But I do have a foundation bottle next to me that, even though not a haiku, inspired this:This timelet’s tryforclean makeupit’s creamy natural120lightweightcomplication freewon’t clogyourporous emotionsAndrea
Fuck me Amandawear the black and white stockingswho needs anything else?
I can't help but lovethat you dipthong words and don'twhere I don't and do.
WHALES kill childrenThey cannot be stopped by manWe need big robotsDespite the fact that the first line is only four syllables, that haiku was quite a hit in our Creative Writing class. I believe it got second place in the UkiaHaiku (it's a palindrome, you see) contest, for that matter. I'm also against the rise of camera phones.
fantastic ideait has kept me sane so farinspired by this
I am forced to keepMy words down to seventeenTo write to you, friends A difficult task,To write in verse ever terseTo communicate.I throw my hands up,Resigned to keep my cpmmentsTruly short for you . . .I give up!!!!- Frankie
haikus are our friends;the words in them are shorter.i hate camera phones.you know what is fun? image haikus! linking an image to each word. tee hee.lame entertainment for the semi-computer literate.
This has nothing to do with haikus.I tend to daydream a lot while listening to music. Usually I start out with something fairly normal, an upcoming show or event etc. From there it's get's a bit rediculous depending on how much time I've got. Today after about 45 mins on the Orange line I ended up with this: During a visit to Ireland I randomly bump into Amanda in a pub and after a few pints we end up jamming with the local band to "Tom Sawyer" by Rush. I sound creepy, but that would be pretty sweet, right?Ok, ok to make this relevant, a haiku:Amanda and meRocking out to the classicsI'm not a stalker
A real personFinds another on the Net...and yet we don't meet.You would be a very interesting person to spend time with.-Z
I don't mean to gush. But I want to kiss your eyebrows.
in milwaukee townmuch beer flows over the crowdyour drinking song ruledYour summerfest show was wonderful. Thank you. Your line "a whore who has given her body to a thousand other men" kept playing over and over in my head while my husband and I were having hot sex, even though he's the only guy I've ever been with. Odd. But thanks.
gushing fangirls* mayeasily mistake cell phonesfor real connection*may be replaced by "fanboys" as per the reader's preferenceamanda, how isit and ponder your hatredfor capitializationdid the tall lettersdo you harm in a past life? I thought them harmless delightful haikus, though they are, i would miss your your prose dearly. i love.
Saw you on the 13th at the Deltaplex. 35 minutes do not do you justice, me group of 6 came for you and you only. We missed the Hush sound and I hate...hate...HATE the generic sound of Panic! I wish you could have been up there longer, although I did like the War Pigs cover. 8)
Sadly is less-poetic form, I wanted to tell you that I really enjoy the songbook. It's clear a LOT of work went into the piece...it was definitely worth the wait.Thanks!
I'd much prefer if you wrote odes. Like my ode to a goldfish.O!Wet.Pet.
I just returned fromthe greatest dresden dolls showTo grace the planet.I *just* saw you, and I can now die happy. You were sooo good, much better than even *I* expected. *squee* I was the third person in the signing line, wearing all black with a red tie. And I was so amazed by the fact that YOU'RE REAL that I couldn't say anything but a choked "hi". So I'll just have to go see you again, and make you sign something else. I LOVE YOU!
Bombs yesterday........I fear for the future... FUCK BUSH cough..in all seriousness, katie
Hey Amanda I'm 13 I love your music very much. I am from nebraska I went to ur kansas city show and it rocked!
haikus are nice, theyoffer a kind of restraintthat makes me happy.I understand theurge to cameraphone thatsome people have, though.Sometimes, a thing isso beautiful, that you justwant to take it home.Distracting, from whereyou sit I have no doubt, butyou are beautiful.Not that I have beenguilty, at a recent showof such an offense!However, I didtake loads of pictures of youonce, and I love them,though the project diddid prevent me from givingmy full attentionthere was anothersense in which I saw you moreclearly than ever.My pictures are here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/crazyjaneski/sets/1697570/
My timing is horrible as this comment will have absolutely nothing to do with the post. I have just purchased Yes, Virginia, and I'd like to thank you for making me want to play the piano again, for making me want to learn new things. To dance and sing, when I can't do either. I have work tomorrow morning and I don't care because I am now tinkering with my much-neglected piano.
Also, did you know this was a haiku...Dance your cares awayworries for another daylet the music play...down at fraggle rock
I am so FUCKING tired of paying scalpers triple the amount of the face value of a ticket to see you open for some band that I don't know nor do I have interest in. It's obvious Panic! at the Disco doesn't need the extra exposure and it's very clear the Dresden Dolls doesn't need to open up for a band like Panic!. Maybe someone can start making better business decisions and you'll start opening or doing double-bills with bands who need the extra exposure. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AMANDA!
blue is nicefor i like bluei hope it doesnt rain
After a harrowing search for tickets my darling friend and I got on the list via her myspace relations with Lucent Dossier. My dreams, however, are dashed when we got there too late to see you. I would have never imagined that you went on so early. And no FTBC to tide myself over with. Not that it could have been helped. I hope if you come to KC again you get a chance to check out the 'again' place I recommended on that napkin you so daintily tucked into your skivvies... My apologies, but I had utterly no time to craft a proper communique. enjoy denver tonight.
But only these wordsHave a set of silver wingsTo reach the corners.
Wow. Haiku is def. amazing. I just wanted to tell you how much i loved seeing you two play in Pittsburgh I left you a comment on myspace but who knows it might not even be you two checking it on there..this might not be you either..but I hope it is. I'd love a comment from you..like on myspace or something..i know your busy but I just wanted to know you got my comments..You're music is fantastic and your style is two. I hope you come back to PITTSBURGH soon..i'll be there..just another fan, Kels E. Moemyspace = www.myspace.com/stab_my_back26
i underatand the haiku too!! I took a pic of you guys on my camera phone but no one can feel how I felt seeing you live and in person..the pic came out wonderfully though<33
Saw your show in Denver on Sunday and was so, so happy. Loved the covers, and the originals, and all of it! Absolutely incredible. And do so many people pass out in your shows? I guess they weren't ready for the intensity. Hope you come back again and play a real set. With DeVothcKa. Because not only Boston should get that.
I can Write Haiku too.Damn it! I screwed that up.I wish I could be cool.
to haikucheers xx
we will save your brotherswe will save your cousinswe will drive them far awayfrom streets and signsfrom all trace of bad mankind
I wonder when will be the day I can write on my blog about a fabulous show by The Dresden Dolls. ¿When will you come to Chile?¿When will I be able to send you both a kiss live?i adore this haiku...her bodycurved on a coucha smile__________________but stick to your writing.
i can do haikuwith some effort, do it well-fuck it blah blah blah
Have you ever read a book called A Separate Peace?For reasons that I can't name, something tells me that you'd like it.I alsways try to use as much passion as possible when I talk about a book but that's difficult to do over the internet.Anyway, check it out if you're interested.
I wish that I couldwrite, a fantastic haiku,just for amanda.But for some reason,air guitar to J. Hendrixis all I can do.Plus I feel real blue.And think I will be murderedtonight in my sleep.I think that I'm scared,because I'm reading this bookall about murder.It's called In Cold Blood.It's by Truman Capote.It's really damn good.Haha, I'm proud of myself. But I would like to apologize to the world for slaughtering the art of haiku.Hummm.And I've decided from now on, every time I comment on your blog I'm going to give a book recommendation. Just because....if someone did that for me, I'd be happy and have lots (more) books to read.Love,Leslie
Well for you there areSo many fucking commentsOne more wouldn't hurtMy sister has been making all her livejournal entries in Haiku form. They are all about how crappy computers can be. Very interesting that you should show an interest in leaving Haiku entries as well...and about technology. How about that.
Amanda, I think you should take up crocheting. it will give you something to do while you are waiting around in airports and whatnot and also let you express some of your creative side. start very simple...much love,~Laura
hello. i just got your album and now i am cold. i want someone to love me. my eyes are wet. please come to my house. i will pay you lots of money to play a song for me. i dont have any friends so no one will be bugging you. it will just be me. you will like my bedroom it is red. the lady in the music shop recomended it me after i asked her for something that sounded like nightwish. which is kinda strange cus you guys sound nothing at all like them. oh well. is it good being a mega super star? i listened to your album 3 times in a row. the first time i was confused. the 2nd time i was getting that feeling you get in your chest like when your throwing up and then i got cold. so i came on the internet to look for you guys. my legs hurt. now im going to read through all your blogs. i expect you will have removed this by tomorrow because you wont like me because you will think im just like everyone else. if you ever want a kidney im just a phone call away. if you love me you can email me email@example.com maybe one day when im famous we can hook up. maybe you will notice me if i come to one of your shows and get trod on and my head gets squished. im not mad. goodbye :)
I wore one of my Dresden Dolls shirts, and when I was at the grocery store, I saw a girl with the *same one*! I didn't say hi, or possibly even react, but I was so happy that there are others near me! *evil laughter*
I miss most of allWhen everything was still newFor now, more beer, please.
I'm depressed, my girlfriend is a fan of yours, you're too much, too great, such a nice person. I'm still depressed, though. Why did she hang up on me? Why am I posting this in the comments section nobody reads? Who cares? I'm depressed, I haven't slept in a day, not so long, but after taking 3 sleeping tablets its quiet troublesome. If my girlfriend ever calls me back I will pledge myself to the dresden dolls. That's a promise of a lifetime. Love is wonderful, but troublesome.
I smile because theres nothingto smile about.Im happybecause theres nothingto be happy about.
the greateststatements ive EVER madeare when i said............nothing
seriously though, im a juggler and musician and i met one of your members the other day i was juggling in the shop where i work(with milk cartons) and in walked this french girl who told me about the dresden dolls, so i checked out your website. unfortunately i dont know her name but if you see her say hi.................
