Amanda Palmer's Kickstarter Project

I just saw "Lioness Elise" written on a piece of paper at the edge of the screen at Party on the Internet. It's a live UStream broadcast of the Brooklyn Block Party counting down and celebrating Amanda Palmer's delightful Kickstarter success funding her new record, art book, and tour.

The project started out with a $100,000 goal. It quickly blew past that, and is now more than $1 million over that $100,000 goal. I'm in at $25 for the backer-only version of the CD. Much as I'm faunching over several of the higher level rewards, I'm happy to be a supporter at a level fitting my budget. Win.

It looks like they're putting up the names of all the backers. There are 24,372 of us at the moment. There's Brad Ackerman's name, and I just saw Kyle Cassidy's name go by a moment ago. Lots of folks I don't know, too, of course, and lots of user names. "Runester" just flashed up. Hey, there's Kyle himself! I look forward to seeing some of the pictures he's taking at the party.

Big fun!


The party is epic. So's the Kickstarter project itself.

I backed it too and have been enjoying the ride along with AFP. Fun times in Brooklyn tonight.

My goodness, she's committed a huge amount of her time to all the gifts for her backers! I guess for $910,000 she'd be glad to do all those things, but oh, MAN. I'd be terrified of fscking that up and letting people down if I were in that situation.
