With Success Comes A Price

I received my first notice from a copyright holder to remove a post. King Crimson to be exact. It has me a little scared. I had assumed I was safe posting bootlegs. Now, maybe not. I removed the post. What do I do now? Shut down the blog? Try to take it private again? I may have a way, but it may crap out like the last time. Your thoughts? Insights? Ideas? Send me an email at blind-pig@live.com or leave a comment under any post.

The Jokes On Me

I keep rereading the "Need Cash" post. To me, it is obvious it is a joke. However ...

It turns out the PayPal accounts that were created for me were real. To the tune of about $120. Most of them have been canceled now which is a good thing. Seriously, I am humbled. I am happy people like this blog enough to give money. But like I have said before, music bloggers are pirates. We borrow and steal music from various sources then post it. Each blogger does what he or she does for various reasons. Some do it for the love of the music. Some do it for the revenue they get from add clicks. Me? I do it for the thrill of searching and finding music that truly gets me off. I get a buzz from sharing it and reading the comments from people who like it too. Or don't like it as the case may be. If I took money for posting music, it would be like fencing stolen goods. That's why for the most part I stay away from official releases. The only people that deserve money are the artists. So ... if you want to express consideration for this blog, here's how to do it:

1. Leave a comment (with a name something other than Anonymous - make something up). Tell me if you like or don't like the post.

2. Send me a show. Preferrably something uncommon, with nice sound. If I like it, I will post it here with credit to you.

3. If you must give money. Donate it to a charity as a gift from NargoTheBort's Deviant Subculture. That would be funny.

4. For the ultimate form of appreciation, go to Rocket's blog at http://hear-rock-city.blogspot.com/ and tell him TonyTiger's blog is better than his. Tell him we don't need no stinkin' artwork. Or just as good, head over to http://infinitefool.blogspot.com/ . Tell IF the only good poetry was written by Dr.Seus.

5. If nothing else, send me nude pictures of your wife or girlfriend or of you if you are female (or close too it). MonkeyGirl did.

Thanks for the support.

Introduction To Poetry
-Billy Collins

I ask them to take a poem
and hold it up to the light
like a color slide

or press an ear against its hive.

I say drop a mouse into a poem
and watch him probe his way out,

or walk inside the poem's room
and feel the walls for a light switch.

I want them to waterski
across the surface of a poem
waving at the author's name on the shore.

But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose
to find out what it really means.
