Skarekrough: Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: EyeballKid: Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: Those chuckleheads were never told they were going to get paid for playing with Amanda Palmer. Then when they didn't get paid some of them got biatchy about it, and now people are saying Amanda Palmer has a sense of entitlement?Yes, don't hate the sleazy manipulator, hate the suckers who fell for it. Sorry, you don't have a hopeless infatuation with Amanda Palmer, you just have a horribly farked up sense of values. My apologies.Which of Ayn Rand's works is your favorite?Yes, what a horrible manipulator she was. She said, "Hey, anyone want to play on stage with me for free?", people said "Sure!", then freaked when she didn't hand them cash at the end of the night. They knew exactly what they were (well, weren't) getting, then pitched a fit when they didn't get it. If she had promised payment, suggested or hinted that there would be payment, I could understand saying she was manipulating them, but she didn't. It was pretty farking clear from the outset that they weren't going to get paid. They were self-entitled biatches who decided they deserved something they weren't offered, which is a whole fark of a lot more like Ayn Rand than you seem to think I am.As a musician it's a shiatty thing to do to another musician.Anyone who has earned their stripes should know this. Anyone who has had to put up with the nearly endless BS that comes from being a gigging musician knows it."Merch beer and hugs" doesn't pay the bills, cover gas money or advance a career.
space1999: Melissa Joan Hart is trying to do the same thing, but she's failing miserably:http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/318676760/darcis-walk-of-shame/Please remember that everyone who pledges gets something in return. Think of it more as pre-ordering the movie, or getting a special award that would not otherwise be an option. For example, for $1,000 you get to attend the after-party with the cast and crew. I can assure you, I would never be able to do that otherwise.
