Amanda Palmer covers “White Rabbit”

"For my part in the show, I decided to tell the story of how Alice in Wonderland was born — because the 2016 TED theme was “Dream” and this is the greatest dream-allegory of all time; because the Carroll classic is one of the most beloved and most philosophical children’s books ever written, with perennial themes of agency, integrity, and critical thinking; because I consider it one of the foundational feminist texts in literary history.

And since Alice in Wonderland originated the expression “down the rabbit hole,” which has become a central metaphor for our Information Age, I asked Amanda to bring her magic to Jefferson Airplane’s wonderful 1967 song “White Rabbit” — which she did, magnificently, with aurally psychedelic help from Vancouver’s Balkan brass orchestra, Orkestar Šlivovica, and musician Jherek Bischoff, who collaborated with Amanda on her sublime Bowie tribute. Please enjoy"

O que os personagens lêem?

"Quais os livros preferidos dos personagens clássicos da literatura? A partir desta pergunta, a agência de propaganda Ogilvy & Mather criou uma campanha para a rede de livrarias mexicana Gandhi. Nos anúncios, Alice, de Lewis Carroll, está lendo LSD, de Timothy Leary. A barata de A metamorfose, de Franz Kafka, está lendo Cem anos de solidão, de Gabriel Garcia Marquez. E a célebre Chapeuzinho Vermelho, dos Irmãos Grimm, folheia as páginas de O lobo da estepe, de Herman Hesse."
