The Big Book Of Who Killed Amanda Palmer – Pre-Order Starts Soon

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2009 by Em Wyllie



The Big Book Of Who Killed Amanda Palmer is being released this July. However, this first-run only book is being printed in 10,000. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. There’s already a large amount going to Amanda Palmer fans that have pre-ordered in the past with the Who Killed Amanda Palmer album Pre-Order. But once those are gone, the rest goes up for pre-order. 

The pre-order starts on Monday, April 20th. The time looks to be around noon EST. Pricing for the book hasn’t quite been announced yet, but I can’t see it being horribly expensive. This is a rare opportunity for Neil Gaiman fans and Amanda Palmer fans alike. The book features photography by many, many brilliant artists. I’ll be sure to post a review when my copy from the Who Killed Amanda Palmer album Pre-Order along with favourite photos and credits for the brilliant photographers. 

Anywho, keep an eye on The Shadowbox and Neil Gaiman’s website for more pre-order information. This book is extremely limited so if you want a copy, be sure to pre-order.

UPDATE 04-19-09

The book has been announced for pre-order on Monday, April 20th, 2009 at THIS web address. Pre-order is estimated to start around 12PM EST.


RoadRunner Records — Shame On You

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2008 by Em Wyllie

Amanda Palmer Belly


Recently, Amanda Palmer released the video for her song Leeds United. However, RoadRunner Records requested that she recut the video to include less shots of her ‘belly.’ 

Now, looking at the shot above, that had no retouching done to it, I think Amanda looks fucking amazing. She looks like a woman should. Apparently RoadRunner believes she’s far too fat to be showing off her stomach. 

However RoadRunner Records has no problems showing promo shots of Nightwish on their site with Tuomas Holopainen showing off his belly. Tuomas isn’t fat by any means, either, but I’d say his belly is around the same size as Amanda’s. But because he’s a metal head and a male, he could splay himself naked and RoadRunner would have no problems. But amanda dares to show off her stomach and they throw a bitch fit. 

This needs to be dealt with immediately. Here is RoadRunner’s contact information. PLEASE Email them a photo of your stomach, with whatever you’d like written on, or bare, and let them know that Bellies of ALL Shapes and sizes are appreciated and loved!

Update: A member of The Shadowbox has put together this wonderful little letter detailing everything. Please read and send something along to RoadRunner or to Jordan!

Amanda Palmer, of the Dresden Dolls, has recently gone solo. The record company she is signed to, Roadrunner Records, has given her hell over finances, record sales, and now this…

Amanda has recently released her new music video for the song “Leeds United”.

Roadrunner Records responded by telling her to she was fat, and to recut the video to show less of her belly.
Amanda blogged about it here:

Since the release, Amanda Palmer fans have been posting tons of responses in the online Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer forum here:

They have begun posting pictures of their bellies in protest and support of Amanda, and sending their pictures to the email address of Jordan ( to make a collection to print and send to the Roadrunner Records HQ, and so far over 100 photos have been collected.

This isn’t just about Amanda Palmer’s belly. This is about all the bellies of the world: Big, small, hairy, stretch-marked, scarred, pregnant, every single belly. The aim is to reclaim the belly; To promote a healthy body image for everyone (not even just females) and to bring an end, or at least a tapering, to the “barbie dolling” of images that record companies and the media as a whole do to artists.

So JOIN THE REBELLYON. Take a picture of your beautiful belly, send it to Jordan (, make it your default myspace/facebook picture, do anything to promote the cause. Help spread a healthy body image for everyone. Just do it.

And flip through this thread to see some more bellies. It’s worth it.

Who Killed Amanda Palmer – Amanda Palmer
Released: September 16th
Tracks: 12
Record Label: Roadrunner Records

Who Killed Amanda Palmer is an adventure in to Amanda Palmer’s psyche. The album delves in to everything from war and abortion to family issues and domestic violence. Amanda Palmer, free of the ties that a band can bring, was able to let herself go and do everything she couldn’t with The Dresden Dolls. 

Full Review after the jump.
