About

I hate that the WU has devolved into such self-righteous assholes.  This would be a tremendous idea if all the proceeds went to poor artists or cancer research or Autism or something.  Instead it goes to the pockets of artists who have the entire world at their ear.  Music and visual art are art. Art should be shared with the world.  Especially to poor people and the culturally disadvantaged.  I don't see how this project isn't mutually inclusive to denying that this work is art and should therefore be destroyed.

I will happily destroy this album in public spectacle and never listen to it.  I have listened to this group since I was able to pick an album from the CD rack.  But these m&%f$#s done went to far.

There will be a destruction ceremony that will be broadcast live via the intertubes.  This ceremony will serve as a work of performance art.  It will be scripted, filmed for posterity, and made available for download worldwide.  

Tickets to final performance made available to pledgers. 

Risks and challenges

Assuming that I am able to reach my funding goal, there remains the risk that I may be outbid at auction and not be able to destroy the Wu-Tang Album in a live ritualistic performance piece.

If this unfortunate circumstance occurs, contributors will have their money refunded.

I do not wish to personally profit in any way. I wish to obtain this album and destroy it in an artistic and grandiose manner. I will personally pay for all transportation to auction and any other fees which incur outside of the auction price and fees to the auction house (that are standard in any auction).

If you have concerns or wish an alternate item for reward in the case that I am unable to obtain and provide you with a destroyed piece of the album, please let me know and I will accommodate.
