I'll spare you: in the first half she mentions how selling 25 thousand records was considered a failure and got her band dropped by their label, and later she points out the 1.2 million dollars raised on kickstarter equals roughly 25 thousand backers.



48 Dollars (30 Quid) for an Amanda Palmer record?

Fuck off.

I'm pretty sure that website just makes shit up.

Following her own logic, I think I'll just "ASK" her to give me some sort of compensation for the fifteen minutes of my life I can't ever get back.

I'm down with the whole Kickstarter thing. It's fine with me if people want to make public appeals for economic support for a project or album or whatever. I just really have a difficult time watching this pretentious woman spew self-aggrandizing bullshit.

That whole introduction about dressing up in a wedding dress, standing on a milk crate on the streetcorner and soliciting money from tourists in exchange for daisies was just gut-wrenching. I'd much rather hear a talk from that guy who spray-paints himself silver and does the robot boogaloo on Michigan Ave.

Kickstarter is a cool idea and makes sense. Her talking about it makes me want to march on it with an angry crowd and burn it to the ground. What a fucking hideous, supremely annoying woman.

Why does a woman who's household net worth is over 20 million dollars need to do a fucking kickstarter to put a stupid CD out? Nobody wonders this? Why do people just sit and listen to this, as if she was this poor woman who figured out a way to release her music that she would not have been able to afford otherwise? She married a multi millionaire famous writer, yet she's talking about sleeping on floors as if it's a thing she was doing during the whole kickstarter deal, which is horseshit, she was already married to a world famous MULTI MILLIONAIRE at that time. Give me a fucking break with this freegan Gordon Gekktress piece of shit.

A certain percentage of wealthy and "successful" people got to where they are by lying, cheating, deceiving, begging and generally doing all the scummy things most people are above. It would appear that this woman is not above these things.

You have to take your hat off to Amanda Palmer. It's not like she's gone after old ladies or the intellectually disabled. She has masterfully swindled people who should know better, and all she had to do is play some god awful pretentious pseudo goth rock music, get her cunt out once or twice and beg like a fucking peasant.

I forget what else she covers in her talk, and there's no way I have the constitution to face up to it again, but IIRC 'her' core idea is that people who want money for a project should ask for it, and people who want to give money should give it.

Yeah, that's Kickstarter, isn't it?

That is what Kickstarter is.

So is she wanting credit for presenting this idea, or what?

Also, she explicitly put out a call for people to give her ideas for the talk. So what did they get back to her with? 'Yeah, just stand on stage and explain Kickstarter, that'll do nicely.'

Somehow I have 75 dollars in my bank account and I can put several albums out a year, she has 20 million in hers and needs to go begging to raise funds to release ONE.

I had a good laugh this morning when I saw the following Amanda Palmer quote on the bandcamp homepage:

"I’ve always tried to be as directly connected with fans as possible, but until you guys came along the infrastructure was much more difficult. Bandcamp brings the whole picture together into a lovely package that not only works, but works WELL. Me and my team made more in one night than I've seen to date from my 2008 (major-label) album."

I'll leave you to your own jokes and conclusions from this quote.

I predict Bandcamp will soon start charging membership fees to underwrite Amanda Handout's next venture.
