    hey beautiful people…if you missed it, i wrote a BOOK inspired by the
    talk (and lots of other things). it’s called “the art of asking” as well
    and it’s now a new york times bestseller. i began with the themes of this
    talk (the bride, the band, the concept of asking) and expanded it into all
    sorts of places i wasn’t expecting to go: my marriage, my friendships, and
    included other peoples’ stories about their difficulties with asking. you
    can order it at amazon here:
    http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Asking-Learned-Worrying/dp/1455581089

    or find it in your local US indie bookstore here:
    http://www.indiebound.org/book/9781455581085

    or if you can’t afford it, use the mass mosaic, which is allowing people to
    gift for and ask for the book, it’s pretty wonderful:

    there’s also an audiobook, which i recorded myself and it includes
    MUSIC….it’s here on audible.com:

    and one last link….if you’re not familiart with my music, i made a little
    “WELCOME TO AMANDALANDA” website that walks you through the basics, if
    you’re curious.

    *For* #musicmonday

    Rather than share a favorite song or something I’m listening to at this
    moment, I’m going to share a +TED Talk that has resonated with me for a
    while now.

    Amanda Palmer in this TedTalk speaks not only to the struggle that many
    performers in general must go through, but she also speaks to the power of
    a loving audience, to the power of asking. Many would think that her
    “methods” would never work, and yet her band continues to perform. Her band
    continues to thrive by not putting a price tag on their talents, but
    letting their audience *decide* how much they can help the band continue to
    perform and continue to share their talents with the world.

    *What do you think? Is the music industry changing? Or is Amanda’s band one
    in a million?*

    Aren’t those crates illegal to use for anything other than milk!!!?????

  10. Sharon Cooper says:

    Beautiful! 

  11. Joyce Wheeler says:

    A must watch and share.

  12. Rob Pickering says:

    I just used this TED Talk to teach my students how to be critical viewers.
    They identified these assertions: asking creates a human connection; the
    difference between corporate success and artistic success is marked, and
    crowdfunding may be the new standard given state of the music industry. I
    was proud of how they interpreted and reacted to the footage, and I think
    you now have some new fans.

  13. Giles H says:

    Fantastic but off course it is, its Taylor Swift

  14. Victoria Woon says:

    When I was small and this song was new, I didn’t know what the word “drama”
    meant and I thought that ‘Drama’ was the name of his girlfriend 

  15. Aura RedWolf says:

    So Taylor Swift has a crush on Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, but he doesn’t
    notice Taylor Swift because he’s too busy with Taylor Swift. So Taylor
    Swift kisses Taylor Swift’s crush in front of Taylor Swift, then Taylor
    Swift and Taylor Swift cheer on Taylor Swift’s boyfriend and Taylor Swift’s
    unrequited love, but then Taylor Swift dresses up for prom and steals
    Taylor Swift’s boyfriend. Then, Taylor Swift runs away furiously whilst
    Taylor Swift kisses her new boyfriend passionately.

  16. Lauren Boswell says:

    I didn’t know who T.S. was. I started actually listening to her music
    (especially the ones that don’t play on the radio 24/7) and watching her
    interviews and I discovered what a decent, quirky and kind person she
    really is. I think her reputation for being “whiny” about breakups in her
    songs is because those types of songs really resonate with her target
    audience.. This means those are the songs that become popular and played
    over and over on a daily basis. She covers many other things in a lot of
    her songs if you give her a chance and a listen. 

  17. Harlebomily says:

    So after 6 years I realize the evil girlfriend of the guy was actually her.
    I am actually mindblown. Yes I was stupid.
