Amanda Palmer Is Not Embarassed To Ask You For Money

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Amanda Palmer talks sense (and cents) on a new economic model for artists:


artists need to make money to eat and to continue to make art.

artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye.

artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks.
please welcome them. please help them. please do not make them feel badly about asking you directly for money.

why i am not afraid to take your money, by amanda fucking palmer
