The most insulting part about it isn't even what the cause is its the part that states if you "donate a 100 bucks you will get an email, and three tweets from Alex." Whoopty fucking do. If anyone donates that 100 bucks Alex is then basically taking his dick out of his pants and slapping them across the face with his 3 tweets, and email.

The sad part is that people are actually going to give money to this idiot.

Honestly, step off your high "artist" horse and get a normal job like the rest of the world. You can make $1,000 during the summer and move out to Vegas in the fall. I'm sure whatever "world changing" music you're planning to make will still be viable then.

And if this Cash guy loves and supports Alex so much, maybe he can get a job too and foot half the bill. Then he can get out there even faster.

This thing is a joke.

I'm sure Kickstarter doesn't like having these dubious projects giving them a bad reputation, so reporting it might be the way to go.

Actually visit Vegas before making comments about it. Just because that guy is a jackass doesn't mean you should be one too.
i lived there for 11 years actually.

i think kickstarter is stupid. i didnt know it was my job to pay for the music before it was made. maybe i would donate the price of the cd if i got a free copy when i was done. ya know, like a paycheck advance.

Most of them do offer that option. A lot of the time they'll also have cool exclusives and offers thrown in. So in most cases it's really more like you're preordering the album, or else buying music in the artist's hour of need. However, in most cases it's a band that already has music out, or it's established musicians starting a new project with a defined goal, so you have a real reason to support it. This crap is just some guys who used to be in a band saying they need money to start an undescribed new band.
