I have added several new Tori Sightings to The Dent.
Keep in mind I only place on The Dent a small selection of sightings I receive, due to space and time constraints...
Richard Handal reports:
Richard pointed out to me a web site called dontcallustori.com. The web site was created by Shannon Hurley, an LA singer-songwriter with her own band, and Steven Leavitt, a musician and songwriter. The name is meant affectionately and reflects the fact that many women singer-songwriters are compared with Tori Amos.

Sherman Alexie's volume of poetry entitled "One Stick Song"
Kaelin Alexander reports:
In noted author Sherman Alexie's volume of poetry entitled "One Stick Song," there is a mention of Tori Amos! In a poem entitled "The Warriors," Alexie writes "I have a crush on Tori Amos, the ethereal, piano-playing, and very eccentric singer-songwriter." He goes on to list several other women in music he enjoys. Alexie is one of my favorite authors, so I was very happy to see her mentioned. It was quite a shock.
