No, I’m not emo, is listen to Oboe Music loud Because its Never the Same tempo as the Turn signal, and That’s Annoying

I have issues with Kickstarter campaigns sometimes. Okay, I have issues much of the time, I confess. What can I say? I’m old fashioned. The “Please give me money so I can have an oboe because oboes are expensive and I don’t want to have to get a job” campaigns just don’t go over very well with me. Some are certainly legitimate, of course, and I’ve even donated to a few, so I can see the value. Sometimes.

Now New York City Opera is having one. Yikes! They want a million bucks (me too, but I promise I won’t start a Kickstarter!). They are in serious trouble. Very serious financial trouble.

I wonder if a Kickstarter campaign will work or backfire.
