The Girl Anachronism

July 16, 2008


If we are going to talk about style influences and following your own innate sense of what looks good then we have to talk about The Dresden Dolls and specifically singer Amanda Palmer. I have to be honest I don’t know much about their songs except for a few but I am however a huge fan of their style aesthetic, their own version of punk cabaret. I love theatrics and Amanda and Brian do not dissapoint.

These incredible images were shot by photographer Oleg Micheyev.

Dresden Dolls

Dresden Dolls                                                                                                                                        you can tell
from the scars on my arms
and cracks in my hips
and the dents in my car
and the blisters on my lips
that i’m not the carefullest of girls

you can tell
from the glass on the floor
and the strings that’re breaking
and i keep on breaking more
and it looks like i am shaking
but it’s just the temperature
and then again
if it were any colder i could disengage
if i were any older i could act my age
but i dont think that youd believe me
it’s
not
the
way
i’m
meant
to
be
it’s just the way the operation made me

and you can tell
from the state of my room
that they let me out too soon
and the pills that i ate
came a couple years too late
and ive got some issues to work through
there i go again
pretending to be you
make-believing
that i have a soul beneath the surface
trying to convince you
it was accidentally on purpose

i am not so serious
this passion is a plagiarism
i might join your century
but only on a rare occasion
i was taken out
before the labor pains set in and now
behold the world’s worst accident
i am the girl anachronism

Here is Girl Anachronism

Here is Coin-Operated Boy
