Amanda Palmer – Please Drop Me

I’m sort of a grudging supporter of Ms. Palmer.  Although I thinks she’s very talented, I never had much interest in The Dresden Dolls.  And even though I appreciate her over-the-top-ness, I find the chosen aesthetic a bit cheesy.

But I like her.

She spoke out against her record label, Roadrunner, when they wanted shots of her “unflattering” belly fat taken out of her video.  And she was vocally opposed to Warner Music Group (Roadrunner’s parent company) pulling its content from YouTube.

And she’s right on both accounts;  Roadrunner is sexist and Warner is stupid.

So it should be no surprise she doesn’t want anything to do with either one of them.   And she recently sang a little song to let them know.

I still can’t figure out why Roadrunner was interested in Dresden Dolls in the first place.  Seems weird.

Regardless, Warner’s looking pretty desperate these days so she can probably just wait a couple months for them to go bankrupt.
