This entry was originally posted on 13th December of 2009, as an introductory post for episode 019 of Twilight Vision TV. This particular blog is an (currently) unaltered copypasta from my little used blogger.com account, therefore the font is a bit small in comparison to that which I would normally use.
Greetings and salutations!
Not only am I a fan of the musical and literary work of Emilie Autumn, but also fully appreciative of her as a human being.
As a classically trained vocalist, synthpop lover, literary geek, activist and crazed Bowie fanatic, her music immediately struck many chords with me at once (pun unintentional).
Her particular fusion of classical violin, electro, creative and literary references, political provocativeness and dramatic presentation simply floored me upon first hearing her Opheliac album a few years ago.
It was as if I had finally encountered someone who managed to accomplish precisely what I had been aiming for in my own artistic endeavours!
After having learned that she was also vegan, I became a fully dedicated supporter of this amazing artist in every single way possible.
I of course jumped at the chance to interview her when asked to do so for TwilightVisionTV, and even took time to hand make special treats to present to her and the Bloody Crumpets on behalf of TVTV and The Lorax Community Project!
I must say here that she is all that I had hoped for her to be, and so much more. She was delightful, engaging, informative, forthright and (in addition to all of that) such a fabulous flirt!
Her graciousness, sweet acceptance and seemingly infinite love toward all of her fans was also very touching to see, and I’m glad to have had a chance to interview and interact with so many of them personally.
