Doll-sized infobytes on the Dresden Dolls:

* The Dresden Dolls sometimes pose naked with each other for band art shots

* They once held a competition where you could win band tickets if you sent a photo of yourself posed as a painted living statue outside of any police station

* They stick hate mail and bad press as well as fan letters and good press on their website. Brave!

* Amanda Palmer sometimes pencils in her eyebrows as she performs live on stage

* Trent Reznor from NIN loves them. Mmmmmm.
