What’s The Buzz ?


In like a lion, indeed…
Kathleen Edwards responded to a tweet of mine. I kept it brief with her. She tweeted “I’m 34, I’m wearing a retainer. I’m about to move in with my parents #amIaloser?” I tweeted back: “@kittythefool. jst learn to twirl the retainer w/o opening your mth. u r a goddess.” she tweeted back: “@amyspeace xoxo”. My heart flipped. I’ve got a girl geek crush on her, cause she knows guitars, can write a great breakup song, and seems like the coolest chick in your junior high. I like the art of a good tweet. Can’t believe I wrote that and it’s hard to believe that would have meant nothing 5 years ago. So, in the style of a tweet, here goes my Newsletter.
Tweet #1: New Record. One month away. #buyitatmySTOREsoon #april16
Tweet #2: A few original signed prints by Duy Huynh left. Email me to get. amy@amyspeace.com #coverart #1in30
Tweet #3: Packing for SXSW sucks. #theproblemisthecoat #andtheboots #notthemusic
See you on the road,
Amy
