Will I be shunned for giving people a heads up that the album is available on file hosting sites if you do some (not too intense) googling...?

I don't speak in any official capacity whatsoever, but in general, implied encouragement
to steal an artist's work, particularly when done ON THAT ARTIST'S MESSAGE BOARD, is
generally frowned upon.

i remember an early twitter response to someone asking for/about the album was somehting along the lines of torrenting it. i don't think she cares that much, based off that comment of hers. who knows though. i DEFINITELY see what you're saying.

Amanda's comments on twitter about torrenting were, I believe, in the context of her upcoming new album with context pertaining to the music industry and torrenting not being the enemy to marketing new music. You can interpret it a million ways, but the kickstarter album being exclusively available right now to only those who backed the kickstarter (the folks that made the recording financially possible) is different, and while I understand your pain in having missed out - it's just the nature of the project.... at least for right now.

As Cee said... regardless of what Amanda's views are on torrenting and file sharing, it's not kosher to share illicit download links. I understand that because this album is currently exclusive to Kickstarter backers only, the public cannot purchase it directly from Amanda & Neil, however even if it was a torrent to an album readily available on iTunes or Bandcamp this forum isn't the place to share files that are specifically not available for free/to the public by the artist directly.

In other words, be patient, in time you'll be able to get your hands on everything you want, if not immediately, eventually.

That's how I interpreted too, and unless I'm mistaken didn't it go something along the lines of..

amanda: it's only available to kickstarter pledgers
random tweeter: what about people who couldn't afford to pledge?
amanda: the download was A DOLLAR dude
random tweeter: what about people who couldn't afford a dollar?
amanda: those people will torrent

Saying that, I do understand and respect the fact that links shouldn't be posted here (it appears that the link I found is inactive now anyway), but I can't bring myself to feel guilty for downloading, listening, and enjoying it.

Pretty sure there's an implicit sneer there...

People too cheap to pony up ONE LOUSY DOLLAR are gonna steal it anyway.

Hi Team  Neil & Amanda,

I was part of the Kickstarter and I know you are now sending the cds/extras/etc.  In the time since I've pledged, I had to move, and I doubt my package will be forwarded to my new address.  Who/How/What do I do or contact to get my addy changed so I get my cool stuff?

Any help is appreciated!  Thanks :-)

Hi Amarantha. Shoot an email to us [at] amandapalmer.net - include as many details as you have (your kickstarter username, your old address, your new address etc.) and we'll help sort it out.

Greetings,

A quick query to fellow Australians: Have you received your CDs yet and if so when? I'm becoming increasingly worried that something is awry.

My thanks.
