Some Fuji Instax pictures I took while in Australia. xx holly

NOTE: i had posted a slideshow here, but given that all the images aren't the exact same size its slightly distorting images that are already naturally a little blurry. so here is a link to my flickr page, where the quality is (somewhat) better...

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

I’m am writing to you from lovely California. I have been here since finishing my last tour of 2009 with The XX and The Friendly Fires on the West Coast in early December.

Being as it is two days before New Years Eve, I have been reflecting on the year that has past. I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to everyone who has come out to support Timmy and I on the road. To those of you who have given us warm, home cooked meals; a cozy bed to sleep in or visited me at the merch table and kept me company. We could not have done it with out you.

From the Midwest tour with AA Bondy, the East Coast with The Antlers, Europe with The XX, and then again with The XX and The Friendly Fires on the West Coast. We have been busy, but there has been no shortage of good music and amazing people surrounding us at all times.

I am happy to announce that it looks like the coming year will be more of the same…

First I am so excited to say that we will be opening for Vampire Weekend in New York on January 18th at Webster Hall!

Secondly, beginning in February, we will be touring across the continental United States with Tegan & Sara!!! The tour dates are below, PLEASE GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!

Last, but not least, I'm happy to announce that my full-length album The Magician's Private Library will be out on XL Recordings February 23rd!

Cheers! Here’s to 2010!

I hope this finds everyone safe and warm and having a happy holly day!

See you in the new year!

My best friend Raimy needs your help.. Please read below. xo holly

Dear Family and Friends,

As you may know by now, I’ve been in bed since late September recovering from a freak accident that left me with an ankle broken in three places. I was hospitalized and required emergency Ankle ORIF surgery after slipping on wet grass at a drive-in in Upstate New York. I needed plates and screws to reattach my foot to the rest of my body. The surgery and recovery have indeed been incredibly painful and I’ve mostly relied on a daily cocktail of anti-inflammatory drugs, painkillers and anti-anxiety medications to maintain my health. I am one of the 47 million Americans without health insurance and part 10.3% of Americans currently unemployed.

The hospital I was at was a charitable organization run by the Bon Secours health program. At first, the bill for 48 hours in the hospital was around $31,000.00. The Bon Secours recognized my dire situation and quickly provided monetary assistance to cover the entire bill for my hospital stay. As Perez would say, Amazeballs!

Unfortunately, the doctors and anesthesiologists do not fall under the umbrella of health care organization. They are both part of large corporate run medical groups where patients are simply numbers on file. Now, the surgeon’s bill is up to $7,700.00 and growing. They have threatened me with “further collection proceedings” if I cannot pay them in two weeks. In addition, I’ve begun receiving medical bills from the ER doctor, and the ambulance company to the tune of $4,000.00.

Because I’m recovering in New York, I had to discontinue my unemployment benefits in Los Angeles. I also had to cancel five job interviews, in a failing economy. In addition to the months of rehab I now require to walk again, I cannot even work to raise money to begin paying these debts.

I have been keeping a blog of my experience, I'm calling it THE OUCHIE. I would be most grateful if you would please forward this blog around to your friends, family and contacts. Because while the ticker news can focus on people suffering from bigger stories than mine, I am now part of the 1.5 million Americans that will go bankrupt this year because of my lack of health coverage.

I have been forced to move back in with my parents, to live in a tiny back office in their already small apartment and I have exhausted my bank account. I may start 2010 on food stamps, but I will absolutely not let this experience break my mind or spirit. I still believe in one persons ability to make a difference and so from a former complacent hipster, please take a moment to read my blog and share it freely on the web (Twitter, Facebook, Digg, etc.).

If you have the means, and would like to donate, I will be curating a personalized mix CD for donations between $50-100, an original sketch for donations of more than $100 a I’ll framed version for donations over $500. My goal is to get 12,000 people to donate $1 by Thanksgiving. Here is the link.

I know we’ve all been affected by this terrible economy; I don’t have any expectations other than your ability to share THE OUCHIE within your own community. This could have happened to anyone, a simple slip on some wet grass could keep me grounded for years to come and I'm not really into being part of all these statistics.

Thanks in advance and I'm sorry about the mass email.
