What We Secretly (Don’t) Need (Day 82)

(photo credit: Caberet 2.0: Amanda Palmer #2 by Isabelle on flickr.com. https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/legalcode.  I liked this photo because the one time I saw Amanda Palmer perform, she played the ukelele and sang a song that set me up to be forever in awe of this woman’s talent and intelligence.)

WARNING: If “foul” language makes you uncomfortable, the following WILL most likely offend you. You may want to stop reading now.

However . . .

if you can look past the choice of words and read what is being said, you will find what I believe to be a brilliant, straightforward attack on the slick marketing game now being played by some of the big players in the beauty products industry.

I hope, hope, hope you’ll read on because in it’s bold-faced honesty, what Amanda Palmer has to say makes me want to weep (both for joy as she’s putting some necessary truths out in the world but also out of sadness because it is so hard to be brave enough to live in the light of these truths.)

The following is from the Facebook page of Amanda Palmer, singer, songwriter, writer, and so much more.
