It's no secret that my big feminist hero #1 is Amanda Palmer. Today is her birthday, and she asked that her fans try to convert the uninitiated as a birthday present. I have no idea how many of you have never listened to any of her music/if there even are any of you, BUT HERE I GO!

Firstly, my favorite of her solo album videos:

Nextly, I re-uploaded my "Runs in the Family" video, because youtube is evil took it down. Even though it is so completely fair use and do not even get me started. I LOVE THIS SONG. OH GOD. (Also imeem ate what little quality there was and has commercials. e.e)

Lastly, I bring you 5 random Amanda Palmer songs/covers for your downloading enjoyment. The first two are from her solo album, the next one is from Yes, Virginia, and the last two are covers.

Another Year - I want my chest pressed to your chest, my nervous systems interfere

The Point of It All - Oh but no one can stare at the wall as good as you, my baby doll

Sing - There is this thing that's like talking except you don't talk

I Will Follow You Into the Dark (Death Cab For Cutie) - If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied--illuminate the 'No's on their vacancy signs

Tous les Garçons et les Filles - Oui mais moi, je vais seule, car personne ne m'aime

If you want to know how awesome a person she is, you can Read her blog, or follow her on Twitter. She's exactly the kind of rock star I aspire to be. <3
