Really really like The Sugi Tap stuff he did between Eve 6 periods, will definitely give this a chance.

$500 for the Cover + Eve 6 solo song is more appealing to me than it should be.

I'm not saying it's not a common sense approach for people to do it. It's obviously easier. I'm not making a judgement on its validity. I'm just saying it's annoying and lazy, which is totally my "in my day, kids did it the right way and earned it" opinion. It just feels slimy to me, whether it's appropriate or not.

It's the guy from Eve6, I think he's probably earned it at this point... This isn't a random up and coming kid...

Is there any place on PledgeMusic where you can see how much they are trying to raise? It doesn't seem like there is. How sneaky
No, but you can work it out fairly easily.

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?

That's a great analogy because he will most likely be working at Subway after this fails.

kickstarter rewards will mean different things for different people.

some will think they're fantastic, others won't.

but to be able to have somewhat of a very personal connection to help an artist you enjoy is very cool.

I'm always surprised when people are angry at artists for not wanting to submit to label politics. Is it not better to have the money actually going to the artist and the kind of production they want? I'm always baffled by the idea that it's a crime to want to make a living off of music, or art in general. Everyone wants to do what they love, but for some reason, they don't want others to make money doing what they love.

Also, I'm just gonna throw this out there-- this is way different than the Eisley kickstarter. This is for something to actually be created and done right. Not a cash grab for a tour they booked and then realized they couldn't afford.
