    Major Misinformation

    Wednesday, May 09, 2007 | 03:12 UTC | Posted by Violet | Minutiae

    Normally we don’t publish misinformation, but Jason caught this and it was just too funny. It’s safe to skip it if’n you’re short on time…


    Lucy O'Brien Acquitted Of "K" Word Usery Charges

    Friday, April 27, 2007 | 00:18 UTC | Posted by Violet | Minutiae

    Interviewer Lucy O’Brien has been cleared of all charges that she used “the horrid ‘k’ word” in her recent Mojo Magazine article.

    Lucy assures Undented that she would “never, as a point of principle, use the horrible ‘k’ word to describe a female artist! Blame ‘kookstress’ on the sub-editor who wrote the headline intro.”

    Done! The hounds have been dispatched to fetch this naughty sub-editor and “convince” him/her to renounce their wicked ways.

    In A Fashion

    Inspired by the Women’s Wear Daily article, has put together a quick rundown on the style sense of the girls in Tori’s posse entitled Five For Fighting: Tori Amos. Thanks to alexander for letting us know about this.

    Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

    Tuesday, April 24, 2007 | 01:48 UTC | Posted by Violet | Cherries,Minutiae

    Jason told us about a rather unusual item for sale on eBay:

    Yep, it’s lock of Tori’s hair (from 1994). You can either bid or “Buy It Now” for a mere £99.99 and you get a Certificate Of Authenticity and everything. Woot!

    Perhaps this explains the need for all those wigs right about now. "wait ... who's tori amos?"

    Website is right on the cutting edge of the Tori News scene. According to a news article posted on their website today, “Singer Tori Amos is working on a new album, ‘American Doll Posse’, which will apparently be ready for release next year.” Woohoo! But hang on … that’s not all. “Before the album release, Amos’ record company will put out a best of style compilation called ‘The Piano’. It will feature singles, remixes, alternative versions and live songs, and will be released later this year.”

    Holy crap, are you guys as excited as we are?!?!?!!!!

    C’mon, kids, hold hands and stay with the group.

    [Update Mar 26: Toriphile Mooky contacted Take40 to let them know about their error. Take40 responded, “Thanks for that! Our bad… the source we took the story from was misprinted!”]

    Piglet Photo Sows More Mockery

    Tuesday, January 30, 2007 | 06:19 UTC | Posted by Beth | Minutiae

    Tori’s famous Pele piglet photo was recently spied hamming it up in the January issue of the UK’s Uncut magazine. Unfortunately, the “Rock Follies” item also included its fair share of hogwash, identifying Tori as Canadian and claiming that she “hasn’t much of a gap between thought and expression.”

    Barbara, hogs and kisses for sending us this.

    Musicians, Others Offer New Takes on Tori Songs

    Thursday, January 18, 2007 | 00:51 UTC | Posted by Beth | Minutiae

    Musicians around the world seem to like covering Tori’s songs just as much as she likes performing others’ music!

    In France, singer Domy Fidanza recorded a cover of Tori’s “Conflake Girl.” Fidanza, originally from Italy, came to France to launch her music career as a finalist on Star Academy, an American-Idol-esque French TV show. She recorded “Cornflake Girl” for a collection called Star Academy: Leurs Singles, but you can hear it on iTunes and at E-Compil. Thanks to Elizabeth and Stephane for the tip!

    Meanwhile, Native American singer Pura Fe performed a unique cover of “Scarlet’s Walk” at a recent Tori tribute. You can check it out over on YouTube. Thanks, Dane, for letting us know!

    Playwright Katie Kring created The Pearl, a musical loosely based on The Scarlet Letter that initially featured a version of “Winter.” Her production was recently featured in a Connecticut newspaper, The Day. In it, Kring explains:

    “The assignment was to choose a pop song she thought would fit into that source material and write a scene around that song. Then, though, she would write her own song to sub in where the pop song was. Kring chose Tori Amos’ “Winter,” which is about searching for a father, and wrote a scene around it between Hester and Pearl. Then she wrote her own song, “Icicle Skies,” that could slip into “Winter’s” spot.

    “It was at that point I realized you could do ‘The Scarlet Letter,’ and you could give it that sort of girl-piano-rock feel and it somehow works. I don’t know exactly why that is, but it does. At that point, it became clear to me that you could actually do this.”

    Brazilian Singer Covers "Black-Dove (January)"

    Wednesday, December 20, 2006 | 18:21 UTC | Posted by Beth | Minutiae

    Brazilian singer, composer and violinist Badi Assad’s new album, “Wonderland,” includes a number of covers, including Tori’s “Black-Dove (January),” the Eurhythmics’ “Sweet Dreams,” and Asian Dub Foundation’s “1,000 Mirrors.” She doesn’t offer any samples of the Tori cover on her site, but you can head on over and learn more about her history and music. Jonathan, thanks for sending this in!
