Kickfarter and indie-agogo: Do they really fund art? Or are they simply vehicles for consuming outside our means? Rich kids with supportive families being the most likely to cash in... Furthermore, a budget devoured by location, transport, long-term camera and equipment rental before considering the cost of employing people legitimately resembles to me only the standard movements of an unquestioning consumer within a now globalized neoliberal moment that seeks an absolute devaluation of labor.

Tonight please embrace Mysti, the finger-pointer, as an opportunity to loosen your tight holes.
