An explanation---please read.

The following doesn't apply to the majority of you, but those it does apply will know it.

When I decided to start a second blog, to share some live music that I have been collecting since about 1989, I never realized I would piss so many people off. I am considering saying the hell with it and just posting an occasional live show on my original blog. I don't need this bullshit.

Since I started doing this I have been accused of "stealing" shows from other downloaders (nothing could be further from the truth, I have thousands of tapes of live and outtake material, and I'm sure some of it is going to duplicate what other folks have, and stealing would imply that someone else is paying for it, which also is bull). I get bitched at for posting the wrong setlist, show date, not saying whether or not the show is complete, if songs are missing, you name it, I've gotten ragged on for it.

I did not realise I was required to do all the above mentioned things. I decided to merely rip some boots I have in my collection, AS IS, and post them. If someone would like to have them, take them, free, I ask nothing except maybe a click on an ad to help my family out a bit for the 5 or 6 hours time I spend utilizing my time to do so. Most folks can't even be bothered to do that (and to those who do, thank you!!!). And I have people (99% anon of course) dictating how I ought to be doing things. If you don't like it, NOBODY is making you download it. If you can find it in better quality elsewhere, go get it. There is no one twisting your arm telling you you have to live with my inferior bullshit copy. Maybe my version is incomplete, if I KNOW it's incomplete, I will tell you, if I don't how am I supposed to tell you something I don't know. (Common sense would be if it's less than an hour and half for a headliner, it's probably incomplete, if it's less than 30 minutes and it's a guest act or opening act-it's probably incomplete). If I ask for any info on a show, and you want to volunteer the info, I appreciate it. But does it have to so damn condescending (how dare I post a fucking show without being a goddamned expert about it).

In the future, should I decide to continue doing this, I will continue doing this my way, which is to give you what I have (and I do try to get some additional info when I have nothing on it, but I will not spend two hours until I find the defining source for each item I post here) . I care about the music, not if Bob Buffoon had a headcold on that night and was replaced by Jim Jackoff for two songs at the end. What info I have I will give, that is all. I have a life away from this computer.

If this doesn't satisfy some of you, then please just stop coming here. I wouldn't want you to have a coronary because I can't be bothered to get everything right all the time.

Christ, it's only fucking music. I love music dearly, but some things are just more important.

Not only do I appreciate your efforts but also your vent and rant! Hey ya know there are uptight, incontinent idiots all over the globe. But we gotta ignore them or become them, cuz murder is a not a reasonable option.

I really hope you keep sharing your collections in your own way. The selections and quality are great. 99.9% of us love it just as is and wouldn't change a thing.

Peace

What do people want?? Bootlegs,roio's, are and have always been as is.
And with so many people uploading various copies of the same show there are bound to be differences. If they don't like it screw them I to have many many cassettes, reels, and yes *tracks +cd's of live shows that have come by hard to get and double checking for acuracy. If it is missing a song, due to uploading that is different but if your/mine copy has a different track list so be it. THANX FOR THE GREAT TUNES THAT YOU'VE SHARED...

I just cant'understand those people pissing off those who just love free music and share it with others... Makes me sad to hear that some people just can't say "Thanks for your free gift"...If they don't like it, they don't have to come - internet is big enough to go somewhere else...
So, I'm gonna say it "Thanks, thanks and thanks again for sharing your music with us ! I love your site" Please go on and just send the nasty comments to the dustbin, the only place they deserve to be.

Hey TT,

I'm nearly speachless...nearly. Ladies and small children might wanna leave the room.

Some people would bitch if they were hung with a new rope...I swear to freaking God.

How can ANYONE complain about something they are getting for free? I mean, just exactly who the fuck do these people think they are? "...so post the whole show next time"? What a douche!

It's people like this, these crybaby bastards, who have this...this...this sense of entitlement that make me wanna puke. Like, with all of the things that are wrong in the world this asshole is actually gonna take the time to piss and moan about incorrect dates and (what is now painfully clear to everyone) an incomplete show.

"TIME TRAVELLER POSTED AN INCOMPLETE SHOW WITH WHAT MIGHT BE THE WRONG DATE...HOLY SHIT!! ALERT THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY!!!! FUCK A BUNCH OF TERRORISTS AND OIL COMPANIES TOTALLY SCREWING EVERYONE ON THE PLANET SIX WAYS FROM SUNDAY. THIS IS IMPORTANT!!! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE AND I'M JUST THE PRICK TO DO IT!!!! ME!!! MR. ANONYMOUS!!!"

Oh well. At least can all be glad that we are not a co-worker / related to / married to / a child of this motherfucker. Being in the same room with this son of a bitch has GOT to be the worst kind of living hell on earth.

TT, you just keep on keepin' on my brother and know that 99.99999% of us are really pickin' up what you're puttin' out. Please continue to get on down with it.

DIRT

P.S. I really am sorry if I offended anyone with the language in the above post but somebody had to say it.

I found your site just recently through Culpa and I just read your "rant".

You are now a full fledged member of the "no good deed goes unpunished" club.

Like most most of the other posts have said, thanks for sharing all the great stuff. I appreciate your efforts. You've posted for a variety of tastes, I'm a Rolling Stones fan myself.

New to the Blog Block and was just browsing and found this release of pent up steam.Was impressed!
Can't even remember what live was to share but do know that it is bad manners to take from someone and then be critical.
Funny thing is I was directed to Blogging from a music lover who was tired of being dogged when uploading torrents.As a boy I was taught that rsouls point down but we now know that they mainly stand out and are not so desirable, especially from the comfort of there own hand blown computer desk.

Hey guy
You're doing a great job and it's appreciated . F##k the whingers, they're probably freeloading off everyone else & whingeing to them as well LOL. You can bet they probably give nothing back. Bit like the leeches on WinMx - I used to log on & get 'em all trying to d/l & sharing nuthin.
My great thanks to you for providing some of the rare & obscure stuff I've been after for ages.
