This is ridiculous...

The Music Nazis ar out in force. Many, many fine blogs have been hit, many just carrying OOP music. As Ozzy in "Bad Taste" exclaimed, "the bastards have landed!" Not only is it the douchebags from the MPAA and RIAA, it's also douchebag collectors. They can't sell their OOP albums at their already overinflated prices while they can be obtained for free, so they rat us out to the upload sites, and they either take our files down, or rat to Blogger and have our blogs shut down. Then, they can (in theory) keep sellign their goods for the price of a car payment. However, they don't stop to think that the people who downloaded the files can just re-up them. They're fighting a battle they can't possibly win unless they shut down the internet (and Al Gore won'tlet THAT happen, now will he?).

On that note, keep trying. We're like the giant killer bunny rabbits in "Night of the Lepus." You kill one of us, and a thousand others will come to take our place. We Bloggers stand united against your tyranny. You kill a file, it'll be re-upped in hours or minutes. You kill a blog, we'll just create a new one and keep sharing. We sharers are family, from the patriarch, right down to the brother's cousin's uncle's sister twice removed. We help our own when their files are killed or their blog suffers the same fate. And also, don't you aassholes realize that sharing music gets people interested in buying the CDs? A lot of albums that have been shared (barring very inflated prices on OOP ones) I have sought out and collected. So go on, keep on trying. You'll never win this battle. We sharers are a crafty bunch, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

So there.

Thanks for saying this. The rash of deletions has been a huge disappointment for those who want to hear this music but don't want to pay the absurd prices set by nebbishy collectors who need to assert an iron-fisted control on these recordings so as to have some sense of power in their petty lives. It's unfortunate that some blogs have decided to fold up their tents in the face of these actions (and I don't blame them -- it must be a huge pain in the ass), but I'm glad that others are standing pat. More power to you.

Here Here Detective Mitchell! To quote a certain Mr. Lennon: "Power to the people!" (or was that Lenin?) Whichever---keep up the good fight. All these closings and deletions are getting me ready to start my own blog!

All The Best,

Love your site and love your witty response to the "man" who wants to just make a $$$. Well said.

I so agree. It's been awhile since I've visited soundtrack blogs, but I'm saddened to see so many of my older ones wiped out. It's ridiculous, as no one could make money besides the collectors off long OOP stuff.
