Amanda Fucking Palmer wants us to re-think how we think about paying for music.
She is known for her music, first as half of the Dresden Dolls, now as a solo artist. But for 5 years after graduating, Palmer made her living as a living statue called the Eight Foot Bride. ("Everyone always wanted to know, 'Who are these people in real life?' Hello!") When a stranger gave her money, she gave them a flower and extreme eye contact.
