    Yo! Go Vote!

    Yo! Go Vote!

    Flashing back to American Doll Posse and Tori's need to "stand up" in a political way. I quote from an MTV.com interview with Tori in which she tells us "You have to be able to think for yourself and not get manipulated". Tori's Yo George is sampled in Mikkey Halsted's “King George”, part of Yes We Can the Mixtape. I found it here on Youtube. A treat for you when Halloween is celebrated at The Examiner with Santa as Angel and Tori as Devil. The link will bring you to the latest posting, so you'll need to hunt around on the side for the Tori Halloween article. You can read Ann Powers article about Pink and her song Glitter in the Air bearing "the mark of Tori Amos" at the L.A. Times. Talking Tori is now on Twitter at TalkingTori on Twitter.

    Yes, Talking Tori is now on Twitter

    Yes, Talking Tori is now on Twitter

    Yes, that's right. I have set up a twitter feed at twitter.com/talkingtori. In today's podcast, I talk about the new twitter feed (ok, now I'm really repeating myself, I'll move on). I also give you some background on the upcoming CD and DVD release of Tori Live at Montreux. And I dig up a 2005 blog entry by Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls in which she has some very interesting things to say about Tori's influence on her. For the original entry, please read Dresden Dolls Diary. Please listen to today's podcast.

    The Eve of the U.S. Tour

    The Eve of the U.S. Tour

    The U.S. tour begins tomorrow in Albany, NY. I'm going to attend the two New York city shows at the WAMU theater. My excitement is building. Can't wait. In today's podcast, I pretty much gush and go on and on about how excited I am that the tour is starting. If you're in the U.S., I hope you are also scheduled to see Tori on the ADP tour. The opening act, Yoav, sounds intriguing. You can hear some of his music on his myspace page. Beck meets Jeff Buckley meets Bjork. Sounds good to me. Please listen to today's podcast.

    Finally Finland

    Finally Finland

    As Tori tours, clips from her performances are turning up around the net. There are a host of interesting clips on Youtube. I particularly enjoyed Tori's performances in Finland from June. Search "Provinssi and Tori Amos". Or "Finland and Tori Amos" and you'll find alot of cool clips. In today's podcast, I discuss two insightful interviews with Tori. You can find them at Tingen.org and Popmatters American Doll Posse brings out thought provoking themes regarding women and the state of today's world. Today's discussion includes the point that Tori raises: it's no longer solely that the personal is political, today - the political is personal! Please listen to today's podcast

    Happy Mother's Day

    Happy Mother's Day

    Happy Mother's Day to our favorite MILF. Today's issue of the UK newspaper, The Independent features an interview and great review of American Doll Posse. Tori talks about her daughter's influence on the new album. Tori made a number of media appearances this week on U.S. television and satellite radio. She's been receiving some great reviews for American Doll Posse. I suggest two really good music references for you to check out, Allmusic and a terrific podcast, Soundopinions which recommends that everyone run out and buy Tori's new cd. Please download today's podcast.

    It's Getting Serious

    It's getting serious - American Doll Posse comes out May 1st and Tori will be broadcast live on Sirius Satellite Radio that night. You can sign up for a free 3-day internet pass to Sirius at Sirius.com. And 80 lucky people who are first to buy American Doll Posse on May 1st at a certain Barnes & Noble in New York City will be able to attend the live show. On today's podcast, I also discuss why you may want to re-read Pieces of Tori by Tori and Ann Powers. I also discuss a recent release by Patti Smith that features a cover version of a song that Tori once covered. Please listen to today's podcast.
