    Early Comic Book Tattoo Art

    Sunday, January 20, 2008 | 17:57 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries

    Oooh, oooh, ooooh! Rantz surprised us with some early art from Comic Book Tattoo. Yippee! Talk about perfect for a Sunday…

    This panel is from “The Waitress” (artwork by the very talented Ming Doyle; story by some guy named Rantz). We like!

    A Comic Book Tattoo

    Tuesday, January 08, 2008 | 05:14 UTC | Posted by woj | Cherries

    While Gerard Way’s SPIN article confirming the upcoming comic book tribute anthology we reported on earlier has yet to surface on SPIN’s website, Chris Arrant has posted a scan of the article on his website, with a blow-up of the excerpt of the article addressing the project:

    Similarly, the fantastical art pop of Tori Amos has inspired a still untitled anthology of comics based on her songs. “Obviously, I’ll need to have a level of trust to turn these songs over to each writer,” Amos says. “With the unknown, there can be a feeling of reticence, but that in itself can be sexy.” More than 70 cartoonists have signed up so far. “This is something that Tori and I have been talking about doing for at least 15 years,” says editor Rantz A. Hoseley.

    Chris, who, with artist Star St. Germain will have a story in the collection, also drops the news that the collection will be entitled Comic Book Tattoo. reports that the collection, to be published by Image Comics, will include contributions from Chris Arrant, Colleen Doran (YAY!), Star St. Germain, Derek McCulloch, Lea Hernandez, Neil Kleid, Leah Moore, John Reppion, Hope Larson and Pia Guerra.

    Finally, also indicates that David Mack has confirmed he’s contributed to the collection as well as completed a painting for a Tori Amos calendar.

    The Best Of The World Cafe Includes Tori

    Tuesday, January 08, 2008 | 03:07 UTC | Posted by woj | Cherries

    An excerpt of David Dye’s May 18, 1992 interview with Tori was published in The Best Of World Cafe, a collection of conversations from the NPR radio program World Cafe. The published interview is not complete, including only Tori and David’s discussion between the airing of “Leather” from Little Earthquakes through Tori’s live performance of “Silent All These Years”. (A full transcript, for those who are interested, can be found on

    The book, published last November by Running Press, is available from the NPR shop, Powell’s,, and, undoubtedly, many other booksellers as well.

    The book does include a bonus DVD documenting the history of WXPN and The World Cafe. The DVD, however, does not include any Tori footage.

    Comic Book Anthology To Feature Story Based On Tori Songs

    Friday, December 21, 2007 | 10:46 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries

    Foxy tipped us off that comic book writer, Russell Lissau, has updated his MySpace page with the following:

    Thursday, December 20, 2007

    The new project…with TORI AMOS!!!

    Man oh man oh man, has it been hard holding my tongue about this one. But the boss says it’s OK to spill, so spill I shall….

    I’ve written a story for a comic-book anthology for Image Comics that’s entirely based — get ready for it — on Tori Amos’ songs. The project has Tori’s full blessing and cooperation, and it’s headed by Rantz Hoseley, a longtime friend of Tori’s and all-around fabulous guy. (And he just turned 40, so wish him a happy birthday.)

    The news broke this week in the January issue of SPIN MAGAZINE (dig that!), in an article about Rock and Comics that also features Gerard Way’s marvelous Umbrella Academy and other fine comics. Check out the article on newsstands everywhere, and soon on Spin’s Web site.

    This project is going to be big, folks. Really big. Physically, emotionally — just, wow. Big.

    More tidbits later as they become available!!!

    This sounds really exciting! And woohoo, Rantz is involved! (You may remember that Rantz is the friend who originally gave Neil a tape of Tori’s music at a comic convention in summer of ’91, and he’s also the person “Flying Dutchman” was written for/about.)

    Russell added that each writer/artist would be covering one song (Russell chose “Happy Phantom”), and they’re aiming for a summer release.

    So see? Life isn’t over. We still have stuff to look forward to!

    Tuesday, November 20, 2007 | 20:47 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries

    Becki and Kristin noticed this contest to win a piano lesson from Tori:

    101-9 The End’s Parker has arranged for one lucky End listener to receive a private piano lesson from Tori Amos the day of her concert. And he’s raising money for the Utah Youth Village Sub of Santa program!

    To win, you must be the hightest bidder. Send an email to Parker at with your bid ammount, as well as your complete contact information. All the money will go to the Utah Youth Village’s Sub for Santa program, getting Christmas gifts into the hands of kids who might otherwise go with out.

    Serious bids only! Stay tuned to the Parker Show for bid updates, as well as Parker’s page (we’ll do our best to keep it updated). The person with the highest bid at the end of the Parker show on Wednesday, November 28th will win the private piano lesson.

    We wonder if Tori will dress as Mrs. Paris for the lesson.

    PJ's In. How About You Guys, Tori and Björk?

    Tuesday, November 13, 2007 | 06:06 UTC | Posted by woj | Cherries,Video

    In a recent interview for Spinner, PJ Harvey ‘fesses up to wanting to sit down with Tori and Björk again, like they did for the cover shoot of the May 1994 issue of Q. PJ answers the question about 4 minutes into the interview, which you can view below. Thanks to Jessica Robertson for thinking to asking about this as we know many Toriphiles would certainly like to see it happen — preferably in a studio!

    Tori Speaks (A Teeny Bit) About The Musical

    Saturday, July 21, 2007 | 21:30 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries

    We’ve posted previously about a musical that Tori is working on for British theatre in collaboration with writer Samuel Adamson.

    Tori spoke about this a bit at the press conference in Israel earlier this week. Journalist Sheer Ganor tells us:

    She said she was a bit nervous, cause musicals can be disastrous, or in her words: “It could be like Sound of Music or it could be like the Paul Simon musical. I love Paul Simon but still…”. Then she added something like: “But we’re getting the girls with the long legs to appear so it should be fine”.

    We’d pay to see a Tori Amos musical if there were short-legged girls in it, too. Just saying.

    Backstory on "The Light Princess"

    Friday, July 13, 2007 | 05:56 UTC | Posted by Beth | Cherries

    A few weeks ago, we reported that the much-rumored stage production Tori might be working on was a theater adaptation of “The Light Princess,” as reported in the UK Daily Mail. However, some of you might be asking, “What the heck is the ‘Light Princess?’” Richard Handal sent us a bunch of goodies that begin to answer that question.


    More Whispers Of A Stage Production

    Friday, June 22, 2007 | 10:58 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries

    Guy sent in the following:

    In the Daily Mail (a UK newspaper) this morning (Friday 22nd June) there was a small but intriguing piece about Tori:

    “Watch out for… Tori Amos, the singer, who is collaborating with dramatist Samuel Adamson on a hoped-for production of The Light Princess, George McDonald’s story (which was illustrated by Maurice Sendak) about a princess cursed by a witch. The National Theatre has commissioned Ms Amos and Mr Adamson to see what they come up with.

    “Adamson, by the way, has also adapted Pedro Almodovar’s great film All About My Mother for the Old Vic, and Diana Rigg has joined the company, along with Lesley Manville, Joanne Froggart, Colin Morgan and Charlotte Randle. Performances begin on August 25.”

    Now it’s safe to start speculating. Whee!

    Tori On Carole King

    Tuesday, May 22, 2007 | 04:19 UTC | Posted by woj | Cherries

    As mentioned in the last article, the June 2007 issue of Mojo features the “100 Records That Changed The World”, as chosen by the magazine’s favo[u]rite musicians. Tori got to expound on #74: Carole King’s Tapestry:

    “I remember the babysitter bringing this record with her one night. I was four or five at the time and I was entranced by it. Over the next couple of weeks it was my goal to play every single song. I was in trouble because I was supposed to be playing Mozart. Carole King is one of the greatest songwriters ever. Her songs are like stories or sonic movies, you want to walk into them. With “I Feel The Earth Move” or “It’s Too Late”, you’re right there. Some people have emotions they talk about, with Carole King, you sense how she really feels.”

    Thanks, yet again, to Anni for sending this in!
