    It is sad that she had to let it go. I'm sure she was a such a good steward of that place, but I can't imagine the upkeep being cheap. Between the taxes and grounds maintenance, she was probably spending a small fortune every year to not live there. T fans should have bought and turned it into a Tori museum / airbnb / cafe with Tori original paninis

    OOOH with a resident photographer, make-up/wardrobe/stylist, and someone to do the photoshop work. Glamour Shots, the inn!

    Yes!

    Jamaica Inn
    Hotel
    Dew Drop Inn

    I’m sure there are other hotel / inn references in her music. Now I really want a Tori themed museum. The wardrobe alone over the years warrants an exhibition!

    Over the last five years I have become increasingly fond of classic and instrumental music (especially Philip Glass, but many other composers as well.) Anyway, for anyone who likes instrumental music but doesn't already have "Sin Palabras" in their collection, it's *really, really* great IMO. I've been enjoying it a lot lately.

    billboard ranked midwinter graces #9 in their 21 Best Christmas Albums of the 21st Century article:

    Tori Amos has made a career out of subverting the Christian patriarchy, so her subdued entry into the holiday music canon came as a bit of a surprise in 2009. The album’s nine canonical Christmas songs, steeped in Biblical imagery, are largely reverent to their source material. Even the singer-songwriter’s five original compositions – including the standout “Winter’s Carol,” a pagan yarn about the passing of the seasons – seem tame by Amos’ standards. Musically, however, the album is expectedly rich, dark, and inventive.

    I really wish that she'd released Sin Palabras (that name! ) before NoH. The music is beautiful, but I can't enjoy it as its own entity; my ears are always waiting for her to start singing.

    (Love Philip Glass too, btw.)

    I am just falling deeper and deeper in love with his music all the time. I think "Solo Piano" is a top ten all time album for me. It's just stunning, hypnotic, like running water...

    I started making this epic playlist of Tori, Kate, Björk & PJ months ago and it’s now over 100 songs.



    There’s a Spotify version but half the b-sides by everyone other than Tori are missing. Boo!

    FYI I did leave off the biggest “hits” on purpose, because I get tired of those.

    Thanks guys. It will look better on Spotify once they add all the Kate b-sides (I think they said soon?)... unfortunately they may never add all the non-album Bjork stuff (too much of it) and PJ doesn't seem interested in collecting her bees anywhere.
