Addendum: New Dolls & Dancy Update/Question

At least something wonderful has emerged from this evil maelstrom of a day. Spooky came home with the new Dresden Dolls, Yes, Virginia. It is exquisite. And I was very pleased to see new recordings of "Mrs. O." and "Sex Changes," both of which originally appeared of the first Dresden Dolls CD, A is for Accident. We'd already downloaded most of the album, and had the free promo EP, but I try to eventually buy whatever I steal off the internet, and as Amanda reminds us, the first week sales figures are the most important. Same dren with books. Anyway, I'm obsessed with "Sex Changes" all over again, but presently have too much to do to indulge in a dissection of the lyrics. I shall settle for quoting my favourite lines:

boys will be boys will be boys will be boys will be boys
will be boys will be girls with no warning
girls will be girls will be guys will be boys that don't cry
over toys that they use to beat girls they despise by the morning...


Also, Bill Schafer at subpress and I have both received a lot of inquiries regarding the long sold-out limited edition of Alabaster. So, Bill's thinking about extending the print run by an extra one hundred copies. And he thought I should ask here how people feel about that before we go ahead and do the deed. You should know this, it means I get a little more money from the book. Also, subpress would allow people who have already ordered the trade edition to upgrade their order to the limited. The limited will include the Dancy vignette chapbook, of course. So, yes, if you have any thoughts, pro or con, please, please comment here.
