    Having shamelessly posted our report about the Dolls' bickering over the Onion Cellar on the Dolls' Shadowbox messageboard, we were pickled to see Amanda Palmer chime in again to clarify. (And also doubly pickled to see Shadowboarders adopting our wink-nudging nickname for the production.) For those of you who can't be bothered to click on the dotted line, we reproduce Amanda's response below.

    Let us now praise ugly music -- the type of heavy metal that summons the image of screaming, mud-clotted, matted-haired troglodytes pillaging Cro-Mag villages, outfitted in nothing but loincloths and warpaint and Marshall stacks.

    Go ahead, call us whores. We don't care. We'll take any traffic we can get, emokid or not.

We're talking, of course, about this year's Pazz and Jop poll, and in case you haven't been keeping up with the drama, go read the Times recap and/or the thumbnails at Idolator, the Gawker music blog that is also sponsoring a rival poll this year. The Voice fired Chuck Eddy and Robert Christgau this year, which has lots of rock critics feeling icky about participating.

    Business as usual: alone, together.

    ThePhoenix.com reports that Amanda Palmer is severely bummed out with the progress of The Onion Cellar, with drummer Brian Viglione taking sides and defending the American Repertory Theatre and the play's director, Marcus Stern. Palmer apparently had in mind something like The Producers minus the humor: "a dark, unsettling musical with stories that involved, among other things, Nazi recollections, the Holocaust, rape, anorexia, and over-medication," as the article describes it.
