If it wasn't going to make me look like a truly terrible human being, I'd tell you what you get for pledging at the fifty dollar level.

Were you about to make a foreskin joke?

I'm sure they would have, but it was a girl scout, not a boy scout.

It's not smug and it's not gloating to appreciate that 2 wealthy children of a wealthy parent weren't given a massive sum of money from strangers to make a video for a song that's not any good. That's just common sense.

If you hope this kickstarter failure infused them with a dense and stifling paranoiac sense of self doubt, coupled with a fear that the entire world has been laughing at not with since the day they first sucked air through their horsey faces, and that this is the first of many instances in which the world can clearly be seen to be telling them that they are not now nor ever have been loved, then you're down here with me in the little people's club. The waiter will be by in a minute.


Oh good. I'll be sure to send a round of malort over to their table.

I guess the Mamet girls were probably thinking, hey, if a few of our parents' friends pitch in five grand or so each, it'll be easy. I'm almost surprised it didn't work. Maybe their parents' friends all hate them.

i had a very similar thought -- the only way they are doing this, is if they can't get the cash from their rich parents who obviously are super loaded and presumably give them stacks of cash for all kinds of other things. perhaps they approached their dad, himself a professional in the creative industry, and said "here's what we want to make and here's how much it's going to cost." and likely he just didn't take it very seriously, and thought they'd maybe get serious about it if they raised the money themselves. one of those guilty rich parents who chooses instructive moments to be frugal and un-spoil his kids, teach them some self-reliance.

so they went ahead and did as they were told. they probably thought it was the noble move. but see, almost everyone who saw the kickstarter ad said "hey, why don't they just ask their rich parents for the money for this stupid project they don't seem to even take very seriously?"

it isn't just that one ridiculous asshole though. 732 people backed the project. It made 8 times what was being asked.

Maybe their dad didn't fund their project because he hates their music. Like, "You're my daughters, and I love you very much, but your music straight up sucks. I mean, seriously, fuck off with that shit."

I feel sardonic at the notion that someone was able to successfully kickstarter 7 figures for a "DIY" effort, which then produced the musical equivalent of The Blair Witch Project.

Long interview with Amanda Palmer in the guardian.

FM Steve is mentioned and one of his posts directly linked to. The piece is written by Jon Ronson, who has previously investigated mental illness, NWO conspiracies and political extremists. Should FM Jon acknowledge how deeply he mines the PRF for his subject matter?

Just read this (on analog paper -- much warmer etc etc).

Confirming the obvious:

I don't do poetry.


On her troubled home life:

It was a house of no metaphors. I had very literal parents and I wanted to survive with metaphor and art, and there was a real sense of shame around it.... There was a real judgment cast in my family about me wanting attention. It wasn't that my parents didn't encourage my artistic pursuits – they did very much – but they didn't understand them.


On the kickstarter fuss:

It hurt my feelings in an unprecedented way. I have never in my career embarked on a journey towards controversy.


The bigger picture:

I was only put on this Earth to connect with the people who were attuned.


Sounds like the fans near Philadelphia got their moneys worth, though.
