"The question of how we'd finance it..."

Do like every artist/band that's trying to make it...work multiple jobs and save up to pay for it. Don't just ask others to pay for it. This gets so annoying.
Fine, I'll bite.

If Joe sells his time to Subway, and the market deems he can makes 10 bucks an hour to make sammichs -- that's ok.

But if Joe can sell his time to a fan, and the market deems he can make 100 bucks an hour selling Skype calls -- that's not ok?

Well that really just depends on the economic theory you're using to weigh that question, since I think everyone would agree that a sandwich has far more tangible, intrinsic value than playing 20 questions on Skype. So, in that case: No, this guy's "rewards" aren't okay.
Nope. Not everyone would agree with that. At all. Value is assigned by what someone is willing to pay. I'd pay a shit load to Skype with some of my favorite artists.

This is one of the reasons eBay can exist.

What you're willing to pay != what everyone is willing to pay.
