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.

Terrorism Works

To make a long story short the ads are gone. Too many threats in my email. I was threatened with having my links deleted by three different folks. I was told I would be turned into the RIAA by another. Told the Red Cross donation was a scam for me to make money. There it is.

Dear Nargo: Your enemies are all assholes. They deserve to be beheaded and displayed in the town square. That is my goal. Thanks for the amazing shares, and sorry to hear about your persecution. I will not rest until they all perish. Or I do. Fuckers.

Tony,

Sorry to hear about the threats. I thought the red-cross emusic thing was a good idea. I am sure that I am part of the large majority of your followers that wish you no ill will.

I just wanted to send a note of appreciation for all that you do. I am really enjoying the recent batch of Neil Young. I have looked for quite some time for the perfect echo series without finding it. Nice to have it so easily available from your site.

Peace!

This is fucked up. Calling the RIAA?! Jesus fucking Christ!!! What is up with these cunts?! I hope they get cancer in the worst possible places. In some ways you could sort have seen it coming. THIS IS STILL THE BEST THING AMERICA HAS GOING FOR IT! Of course some twisted fuck wants to put a stick in its forks. Be strong, Tony. Thank you for all you have shared with us.

after you selflessly posted probably thousands of shows (which don't come cheap i'm sure)some leechers get bent out of shape about ads. fuck those assholes

I notice the threats come in anonymous e-mails, rather than public comments. Jealous cowards, all of them.

proof that Bozo the clown's offspring are alive and well. THe Red Cross thing was a good idea. some people still need help after that Katrina mess ...

Take it from someone who ate Red Cross food for a couple of months here in New Orleans, people who think that seeing an ad is a problem for them don't appreciate anything that they have and don't deserve what you give.

Thanks for sticking with what you do best through all the bullshit, Tony. You've provided myself and tens of thousands of other listeners with some truly great stuff.

Looking forward to hearing Steely Dan in Memphis when it finishes downloading! Stone cold classic.

Tony,

I think the bottom line here is that you know you're doing well when you start getting flak. Take it as a compliment and do what you want.

Thanks Mike

How low can some people get?

Threats for trying to raise money for charity ? - it really is the pits.

Be strong my friend, carry on with your incredible work. 99.9% of the folks that download your music are with you - and extremely grateful.

Tony,

Bring back the ads or we will put razor blades in the Frosted Flakes. DO IT NOW. This is your last warning: we have powerful friends at Kellogg's. Very powerful.

Tony I enjoy your site and I am sorry there are so many assholes out there. People all this music was FREE....but it takes lots of time and effort and MONEY to post it....so now you have railroaded Tony out of ads....did it cost YOU anything? Well if he shuts down the site it will serve all of you idiots right. Sorry tony. I propose you setting up a way to DONATE...I would. Don't let the bastards get you down.

david said...

that's absurd. these people come to your site to take advantage of your hard work, and then bitch when you put up ads? some people need to rethink the way they treat people...

keep putting up the shows!

bob said...

most folks suck.

e said...

There are cynics everywhere. You can't let them run the day or your day. Keep up the good work. Love this site and the shows. Much appreciated and take care.
