Fred Armisen seems to be in every relevant video today. Perhaps he is my anti-Kickstarter spirit animal. Here is Portlandia's take on Kickstarter as it relates to parental support. There is no need to concoct an elaborate ruse just to squeeze money out of your family members. You should do it the old-fashioned way, just as your privledged forefathers did: beg for it. If you don't have the courage to admit you're relying on your parents' money, then you don't deserve to be supported by your parents well into adulthood, damn it.
