One of my favorite musical performers. I’m sure I’ve seen her over a dozen times.

Tori always has interesting lighting at her concerts. Lots of changes during the show with more to do with the set and lighting (no actual physical changes). I always enjoy it.

The concert was awesome (as Tori always is), had a great seat, row G (on the right side) so it was perfect. As people cleared out I was able to move up front for the last few songs).

Below I’ve got a few low quality photos (my iPhone is great, but in the dark it’s not so great) and a video to illustrate the lighting.





The video is just a few quick clips so you can see the lighting (I think it’s four clips about seven seconds each).

I’ve never seen this before but if you follow the direct link to YouTube and click on the HQ button at the bottom it makes the movie bigger (like the HD button does). Give it a try.

But I haven’t figured out a way to directly link it to make it the bigger HQ automatically (you can append &fmt22 to force into large HD or &fmt=18 to force into normal HQ but I’m looking for the large HQ answer, anyone?).

I was at the Detroit Opera House the other night to see Tori Amos in concert (that’s another post) and I really like the building. I’d like to see it in better lighting and take a bunch of pictures with my nice camera to see how good they might really come out.

These were just with my cell hone but I think they came out pretty good.


I really like the above one with the jagged edges since it shows the ceiling so well.


These are actually exactly the same photo but just cropped differently. It’s five or six photos stitched together (but they were stitched together using AutoStitch on my cell phone) to make one big photo.

Abnormally Attracted To Sin is only $2.99 (it’s now up to $949 [7/22]) right now at Amazon for the 17 track album. Abnormally Attracted To Sin Tori Amos/Republic RecordsI can’t say how long this offer is going to last but I just picked up my copy!

iTunes wants $11.99 for Abnormally Attracted To Sin with one (1) bonus track (Oscar’s Theme), probably not worth $9.00 for that much more.

What iTunes does offer is an Abnormally Attracted To Sin deluxe edition with with fifteen (15) videos for $13.99 (which also includes the 18 songs!), that might be worth it for the big fan. Personally, I don’t watch the videos enough to make it worth it.

Obviously these prices will change eventually, but I’m sure the the $2.99 price probably wont last long.

Forty-four minutes of video of Tori Amos playing at KCRW this morning.

Below is just the audio of the show.

Here’s a direct link for video and audio.

She plays new and old music (lots of old!). I found it really enjoyable! There is some interviews in the middle of there too (starts about 15 minutes in and last for 12-14 minutes).

PS – You can get CitiBank $5 lawn tickets for Tori Amos in Indianapolis, IN on 8/7/09 and Miami Beach, FL on 7/29/09 (sort by event and look on pages 3 and 4). There might be some other fees, but it’s still got to be a deal. I’m sure this offer won’t last long, if you check and they’re gone, please leave a comment and I’ll cross it off. If you get the deal leave a comment too!

So they’re releasing Comic Book Tattoo – Tales Inspired by Tori Amos which is, according to Tori’s blog:

a 480-page, full color anthology adapting the themes and ideas behind her songs into a lush volume of sequential art

it’s a 12 inch x 12 inch book ($20-ish on-line). While this seems slightly odd, I will need one for myself!

All sorts of people are doing the fifty stories for the book with an intro by (who else) Neil Gaiman…

They also have a Comic Book Tattoo Limited Edition Hard Cover for $149 $95! I’m not sure if that’s anything extra, like a larger format, nicer paper or autographed, if anyone hears anything, please let me know.

Both editions have “coffee table format book” in their descriptions, but is 12×12 large enough for that format? Or is the hardcover edition larger? larger would be better….

Alison Sudol was excellent last night. A very small venue at The Shelter, the cancert was sold out but I’d guess there were only about 300 people there, lots of room. No one was back farther than about the equivalent of about 10 rows (no seats, general admission standing only with just a few tables). I’ve seen A Fine Frenzy before and it was a smaller venue so it was great having the small crowd and as a bonus it was a non-smoking show. A Fine Frenzy Alison Sudol March 2008 Detroit

She’s has such a lovely voice and writes her own songs. She’s got this voice that’s kind of a Sarah McLachlan / Tori Amos voice and she’s just incredible. She so beautiful and has this sunning red head, and while it might not be naturally that red, she’s got that anemic porcelain look that so many red heads do, I’m assuming she’s actually a redhead. My camera in my phone takes pretty crappy pictures, but I tried to take a few.

She’s so into when she plays, and every so often she looks at the audience, I feel likes she’s forgotten us and that her manager told her she has to make eye contact every so often and that’s why she looks up. I always think of ‘gracious’ when thinking about her personality, that’s just how I feel when she’s talking to us and that’s how I feel when she talks to you personally. I did get to get to say ‘hi” and get her autograph on a promo poster after the concert. She’s just so nice, even with just a 30-second conversation…

It was a busy night as we had a fund raiser at work at six and the concert doors opened at 6 too (they’re about 25 minutes apart). So we planned to skip the opening act and just see her and depending on the time possibly go back to the auction. When I finally called the concert hall. They said she was going on in 15 minutes!!!!! So I had to find Kelly and Mark get out of there. We made good time, even with having to go a longer route, found free parking right around the corner and when we walked in the music was playing but she hadn’t uttered a word yet!! So it was a great night.

One Cell in the Sea A Fine FrenzyWe never got back to the auction, even though it was only 9:30 when we left, it was just a little too late to head back. So I have no idea what or if I won anything. I probably had my name on about $400 worth of things, but I’m assuming I got over bid on more than a few of them (there was still 30 minutes left of bidding when we took off). I had some train tickets to Chicago, baskets of games, chocolate, theatre tickets, plus I bid on one of my donated items and a few more things. One of the items I donated was for my Cat in the Hat basket which had books/stuff and included a visit from me as the Cat in the Hat (for birthday parties, classroom visits and bachelorette parties), I drove the bidding up to $75 before I left, but if no one bought it I’ve purchased myself. While I love doing it, it’s not worth it to spend a hot summer day outside in the outfit if it’s only giving the school that much money so we’ll see how that went. I also donated a basket of coffee and chocolate covered coffee beans that I picked up the stuff the last time I was in Costa Rica; I’m wondering what that sold for, it’s was only at $17 the last time I looked…

I’ve been trying to filter out some of the “stuff” at my house that I don’t use any more, today was the clothes closet. Some stuff will be bound for Goodwill / Salvation Army, some for the trash and a few things for the vacation pile (clothes that I take on vacation but don’t bring back).

What I really hate getting rid of is shirts with stuff printed on them for several reasons. One, I probably paid more for them. Two, I didn’t pay anything for them but they’re pretty unique. (But) Three, I rarely wear them. Some of it’s a mish-mash but today I noticed a bit of what I had in odd quantities:

  • Apple Computer T-Shirts (5): Most of these I got as promos or won at a conference but they’re all to small, it’s either all they had or it shrunk the first time I washed it. I keep hoping they’ll magically it some day, but…
  • Tori Amos (5): A few from concerts or that I found at a music store. I’ve got one that I got autographed at a concert.
  • Indigo Girls (6): Mostly from concerts, something from an on-line group and an autographed one that a friend bought for me at an fund raising auction.
  • Domestic Violence (7): I either purchased these at an event, they were given to me for volunteering at an event or came in a ‘thanks for donating’ package.
  • Costa Rica (1): I’ve been there 4 times and only ended up with one shirt from my first trip (from one of the Zip Line through the Cloud Forest adventures).
  • Blogography (3): Cool shirts that Dave from Blogography created.
  • Sandman related (6): Shirts inspired from the Neil Gaiman Sandman series (I think they all have Dream, Death or Delerium or some combination of them).
  • Tech Shirts (10+): Other tech shirts from vendors, tech conferences (part of registration or gift for presenting), organizations or something or another.
  • My job (6+): Shirts that one of the departments printed up for work or some kind of fund raiser event.

    I so rarely wear them out (in both interpretations), I usually just wear plain (colored) shirts. If I’m changing into something to wear after I come home and shower I’ll throw one on but wearing one out and about just doesn’t happen so often. Actually, other that wearing a music one to a concert I think the only ones I’ve worn outside in the last year is probably wearing a few of the shirts that Dave made.FYI, the counts are just estimates, I didn’t actually make a tally sheet.

    Tori Amos was awesome! I really haven’t listened to her newer stuff very much but I really enjoyed the latest album when she played those songs. She played a lot of older songs, which is what I like.

    I’ve seen Tori a few times, I’m guessing about a dozen times now, spaced out over the last 15 years. So by this time, not only do I know where to sit, my mother knows, she specifically asked me on the phone, “did you get a seat on the right-hand side?”, I’m surprised she remembered something like that. I did sit slightly to the right and before I went and I thought I needed to be a bit more to the right, but my seat was perfect! Plus, all the people sitting in my line of sight were short!

    She’s always a little quirky, but she didn’t talk much so it was hard to tell. But after her first outfit change, she was halfway through the third song and she stopped, and asked the guys to continue to play, “I’ve gotta go take this corset off, it’s killing me”. They finished up the song as she came back out and she just went on to the next song :)

    Yoav opened for her and her was great! Not sure how to describe him, but he was a good act, could have listened to him more. He had a short EP for $5, they really needed to have a seperate line for his CD at intermission (maybe a ca$h only line). Everyone ran out to get it and it was a disaster.

    You can see more of my Tori Photos at flickr (they didn’t come out very well, but you can see the different stage setups). If you saw my photo of the ceiling of the theater, go back and look at it because I added some more info (and sort of link to some older photos).

    Under the Pink Tori AmosTori Amos is at the Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan tonight! Row H, a little to the right, just perfect since she generally faces the right more!

    There are still decent tickets left…

    Yesterday, I commented on how I haven’t heard much about Neil Gaiman being tied to the Stardust Movie even though he wrote the book. And I think that’s strange. Here’s something stranger, but shows you his diversity in projects: This album, called “Where’s Neil When You Need Him?“, has 17 songs about his stories by a bunch of different artists (including Tori Amos). Here’s the description on Amazon –

    A unique collaboration between a collection of talented musicians and a best-selling author. Seventeen top international acts offer 17 exclusive songs inspired by the diverse work of Neil Gaiman. Includes a lavish 20 page booklet with extensive liner notes from Neil Gaiman about the project and each of the songs and an assortment of all new artwork from Dave McKean, as well as a foreword by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. The songs on this disc are inspired by Gaiman stories including Coraline, American Gods, The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish, Stardust, The Goldfish Pool, Sandman, The Wolves in the Walls, Mr. Punch, Mirror Mask and Neverwhere.

    Seriously, who ends up with something like that?!? How is he not getting more recognition on this?

    His stuff is kinda complicated and you’ve really got to pay attention, so don’t be afraid to start with the kid books, they’ve got all the cool art by Dave McKean too!

    So there’s a raffle at the Open Rights Group and one of the items is the keyboard that Neil Gaiman used to write most of his Sandman stories. It’s missing a key, but it’s autographed and for some reason he doesn’t think this would be a very cool prize. This would be so cool to have! There’s lots of other prizes too (more from Neil too).

    If you don’t know who Neil Gaiman is, someone summed it up the other day (and I don’t remember who I found it, so now I don’t have to paraphrase it).

    Most geeks swear by him (Neil Gaiman).
    If Joss Whedon is their god, Gaiman is their Jesus.

    Peter Sciretta at SlashFilm.com

    Actually, I’d rank Neil higher than Joss, but he’s definitely more of a parable/quote person (IMHO) so maybe the latter fits more.

    So back to the keyboard – However I wanted to display it I’d have to put a little tag on it that says something like, “This author writes stories that transcend reality as we know it, but still fits in with it. Don’t ask any more because it’s a really really long answer”. He’s one of the few people that I really enjoy that I haven’t pushed on people. You really need to read more than a bit of it to get someone to really get it and before that point most people give up.

    I’ve mentioned Neil Gaiman lots before but I’ve never really posted a lot. If I mention him on-line people either know him or they don’t and I’ve generally left it at that. But I think I’m going to change that.Back to talking about the books — The Sandman is too complicated to explain to most people. No one believes me that he’s got a story-line around a English kid, Timothy Hunter, with wizardly powers who is a better character and been around a lot longer than Harry Potter (The Books of Magic). Mirror Mask is kind of surreal/bizzaro to show to people. Anansi Boys and American Gods are great if you can get people to stick with it, but they’re a little long for people who don’t get it. I’ve got people to like some of the short stories and some of the Sandman one-shots but getting them past that is always hard. Honestly, the kids books are where I’ve gotten most people to read: The Day I swapped my Dad for Two Goldfish, Coraline, and The Wolves in the Walls. But Coraline is the story one (the chapter book) but people tend to shake they’re head at some of the bizarreness of it.

    He’s got connections to Tori Amos too, but that’s another story.

    Tori fade to redThis is a little different it’s Tori Amos: Fade to Red a video collection and commentary from the Apple iTunes store. It looks good, I’m not just sure if I want to buy it and it’s not DVD quality. Most of it’s old stuff that I already have on video or DVD. I guess I should check to make sure, it’s possible I already have all of it…

    They have all the other Tori Amos music, videos and they actually have a few live concert “bootlegs” too (Boston, Manchester, London, Denver, LA and Chicago).

    (Later) And now I see that Amazon carries the Tori Amos – Video Collection: Fade to Red DVD. So I guess it’s not as different as I though (although, it did come out less than a month ago). But that’s full screen and it’s a few bucks cheaper too, but I’ll still need to see if I actually need any of the videos.

    Oh, who am I kidding, it’s Tori, I need to have it…

    tori amosSo I never got around to saying much about the Tori Amos concert the other night. I ended up getting great tickets, they freed some up a few hours before the show, so I ended up getting in the orchestra section a little on the right (row 4) so it was great. Totally different concert from when she was here in the spring, she played lots of old stuff then and (unfortunately) very little old stuff here.

    One of the cooler songs she played was a excellent mix of God and Running Up That Hill, the latter being a Kate Bush song. She also played Starry, Starry Night I have heard her play before and I like it. A few other covers too, but I didn’t know them (I suppose they could have been a new song that I didn’t recognize). (I’m back, I just googled a set list) So here’s what she played, I would have guessed there were more songs, I thought she played close to two hours (at least 90 min). Tori Amos

    So at 9:59 am this morning I’m at the Ticketmaster web site for Tori Amos tickets, they go on-sale at 10. Refresh (not yet). Refresh (not yet). Refresh (not yet). Click to buy (yes!). I’m in row P? TicketmasterWhat’s up with that? Release try again, Row R? Try again, row P, same spot! So I try single seats, doubles, everything is that far back (I see that same spot on row P a half dozen times). It’s ten hours later, I can still get as close as row U. If it took this long to sell a few rows, where the heck did the first 15 rows go (plus the 4 in the pit) is the first few seconds. I mean I love Tori and all, but where did all those seats go in the first few seconds?!?

    Tori AmosThis week iTunes has an exclusive four track album for Tori Amos out his week called (coincidentally) Exclusive Session: Tori Amos – EP. The album has live versions of Crazy, Seaside, Sleeps With Butterflies and The Power of Orange Knickers. Tori is one of the few people that I think does good “live albums”.

    They also have three free songs this week.

  • Augustana – Stars and Boulevards from You’ll Disappear
  • Harald Johnson, Jarle Vespestad & Tord Gustavsen – Curtains Aside from The Ground
  • The Backstreet Boys – Never Gone (Album Sampler)

    These links should launch iTunes (if you have it) and show the songs. The free songs will not be free after Monday, June 13th 2005.

    So I was just reading another blog (Glimpse of a Girl) and she has her review of the Tori concert and I realized I never said anything about it when I went last week! I think it was Thursday the 14th of April.

    It was great!! The seats were really good, row M to the right, you always want to sit on the right at a Tori concert if you have a chance since she usually faces that way. She generally has two keyboards but plays most songs on the (baby?) grand on the right. This time was different she had four keyboards of various types and was constantly bouncing around so it offered a better view for others but the right was still the place to be… Tori Amos

    Here’s the set list and now that I look at it I realize I forgot to mention she did a great cover of Bob Seger’s Turn the Page. Although the Abbey Road song I believe was hers (see the lyrics), she said she lived on Abbey Road (or near it) in a beautiful house and muttered something like “I should have bought that fuckin’ house…”

    The odd thing was (and I’m not complaining since it’s not my favorite song) is she didn’t play Cornflake Girl which I think she always plays. I did miss Little Earthquakes, I kinda had that one running through my head…

    It was at the Detroit Opera House which was a nice small venue (3,000-ish seats?). I had really thought I had been there before but I hadn’t, I had been to the music hall which was just down the street. I think the second balcony was bigger than the main floor, the first balcony were sorta/kinda box seats. Lame setup for the souvenirs though, couldn’t get very close to see if there was anything I needed.

    ToriamosWoo Hoo! Tori Amos is going to be at the Detroit Opera House in April!!!!!! Not only is it a semi-small venue (at 3-4,000 seats it’s certainly not the Palace) it’s a very easy ride from my house.

    So I picked up The Beekeeper today. It really does reminds me of her older albums (even the packaging). I’m liking it so far. There seems to be two versions a reguluar version with 19 tracks and a limited edition with the same album, a DVD and some seeds to plant (I’m not kidding). The DVD has a really long interview thing that I haven’t really listened to yet and a extra track (Garland) that appears to be part video / part slideshow (with quotes from her book Tori Amos: Piece by Piece). Most places seem to have the regular for $12-ish and the deluxe for $16-ish (YMMV).

    FYI – I had a hard time getting the CD out of my slot-loading Macintosh Powerbook. I’ve never had such a problem before and I didn’t try to replicated it since it was hard to get out (duh!). Once I got it out I did see that it had a kind of rough matte/flat covering on the label side of the CD. It might have been a fluke but bee (get it?) careful!

    Tori has a new CD out tomarrow! It’s called The Beekeeper. I’ve only heard one song (Sleeps With Butterflies) but I think I’m going to like it, it reminds me of a few of her older albums.

    She’s also got a new book out called Tori Amos: Piece by Piece. I’ve purchased it but I haven’t read it (today would have been a good day to read it).

    FYI – There is a regular and deluxe edition of the CD, not sure of the difference (I’m assuming a DVD in the bonus version?).

    I sent out my Burn It CDs late (but it was more than a few days ago, so if you didn’t get yours it’ll be there any minute) the theme was songs from movies. I was in two BurnIt groups (so I had six people sending CDs to me (actually I only had packages from five of them) and I had to send to the six of them and the coordinator.

    I was nervous at first Alfie sent hers’ out way early and the packaging was beautiful. Great cover, printed CD, artwork for the back and inside (behind the CD). Even her printing on the envelope was great. Very professional and I don’t think it’s related to her major. She set the bar very high, the rest had some nice ones and some plain ones so I was feeling better for mine. Mine might have been in 2nd place for looks but I was still left in her dust.

    I do have one complaint about iTunes, until you burn you don’t know how long your disc is, I mean who measures time by saying 1.1 hours?!?

    Some were songs I liked, some were artists and some were movies I liked that I wanted a song from. It was hard since some of the movies just have a great sound track (Some Kind of Wonderful, The Lost Boys, Pretty in Pink, Boys on the Side, Bill and Ted’s, City of Angels, etc.) Here’s the track listing if you’re curious.

    1 Oh Yeah Yello Ferris Buehler’s Day Off
    2 Extraordinary Liz Phair Raising Helen
    3 Kids in America Kim Wilde Clueless
    4 Uninvited Alanis Morissette City Of Angels

    1] You’re making a CD mix titled, “The Soundtrack of My Life.” Which songs would you include, and why?
    Specific songs? I don’t know all of the titles but I know I’d start with one or two from each of the following. Tori Amos (something from the early years), Indigo Girls (early), Sarah Mclachlan (two or three from Sufacing?), Carly Simon (the cover she did of the theme from Casablanca), Jewel (the first two albums), Alanis (the one of the City of Angels soundtrack), Big Bird doing the ABC song. I might look up specifics later, but it’s been a long week…
    2] What is your favorite song right now?
    Probably one of the new Liz Phair songs, she’s been getting a lot of play by me lately. Maybe “My Favorite Underwear” that one always makes me smile.
    3] You’re feeling down, sad, lonely, frustrated, angry … which song[s] do you play to help yourself feel better?
    Usually some older stuff. Either an 80’s retro mix (the more dance type stuff, but always including Tainted Love) or a GoGo’s deluxe mix (GoGo’s, Jane Weidlan, Belinda, The Graces all shuffled up).
    4] Do you watch the TV show “American Idol”? Why/why not? Who do you think will win the competition?
    Not at all. It just doesn’t pose any interest to me.
    5] Do most of your friends generally share your taste in music?
    A lot of my female college friends like the earthier stuff, the guy friends liked the retro 80’s stuff. Current friends all like a little bit of one part and someone likes part of another.

    I keep thinking am I picking songs from various eras to be the sound track or do I actually want to words to convey my life? I’m sure I’m over thinking this… But I’ve got a little bit of both…

    These are all the DVDs I own, many are music. I’m not a big movie collector but I’ve picked up a few here and there. Most of the movies were really good deals (many were under $10, if not $8) even with shipping but they still show my taste(?). I should have slightly editied since there were a few (Analyze This, The Mask) that I wouldn’t have bought but came free with a player. SO click on the icon to check them out.

    FYI – ‘Flight of the Navigator’ is the best movie every (and it’s by Disney). ‘A Christmas Story’ is great too, I’m not sure why it isn’t in the list?!?
