Seems like my MediaFire account was suspended (whatever that means in bureaucracy terms). I suppose I shared too much of copyrighted crap on this blog. But the sad thing is, they didn't remove just the files that were infringing on copyright but they removed ALL of my files. That means NONE of the links work at this moment. MediaFire has a policy of suspending accounts (stupid term, I think they should call it KILLING the accounts) that get too many DMCA notices (DMCA = Digital Millennium Copyright Act). I personally don't have the problem with the owners of the music I post on here wanting to get their stuff removed, as it's their music, they made it etc. blah-blah they own it, yawn, but obviously me and them have a different vision of how the internet and free sharing of information should be handled. They chose the police state approach, so FUCK THEM!
They use the logic that every album you guys downloaded from this blog hurts their wallets, they say that every download is one less bought CD for them, and I think that is ridiculous. I know from my own experience that people don't want to buy every crap that is out there, if they care about the band they will go and BUY the shit band has to offer. Basically, downloaders get the blame for the bad state of music industry (and maybe that's the problem, it's a fucking industry, forget all the idealist stuff about how music is ART, it's a money making industry!) and it's cos the industry SUCKS big time. No one buys CDs anymore cos music suck!!! Not cos of people are downloading! People who download are the people who buy your music "products", you morons from the music industry!
All this industry and business talk is making me sick cos this blog, and 90% of the posts I had on here were non profit, D.I.Y., share-my-stuff type of music.
Stuff I mostly put on here was for me like a testament of my own life, stuff I liked, stuff that made me think about life, world, how things work, and now they messed it up. NO MORE DOWNLOADS!!!
FUCK YOU MUSIC INDUSTRY! FUCK YOU OLD PUNKS THAT WANT TO HAVE A NICE HOME AND A NICE CAR COS YOU'RE OLD AND CAN'T BE BOTHERED WITH MAKING ANOTHER COOL RECORD. FUCK YOU CORPORATIONS, AND FUCK YOU MEDIAFIRE FOR NOT EVEN CHECKING THE FILES YOU GET COMPLAINTS ABOUT.
Some of the crap I got suspended for wasn't even the stuff the complaint was about.
But enough of me whining. What is there to do? Give up? Say "That's it, I'm quitting"? NO!
I'm gonna keep on doing this blog, gonna find other ways to share music, gonna make another Mediafire account and post shit on there, gonna try and work it out, I'm not gonna let some scum tell me what I can and what I can't do. FUCK YOU ASSHOLES!!!
Only thing I know I won't ever do is buy another CD from a music industry.
I don't care what you guys do, leave me alone!
What this means for this blog? ALL LINKS ARE DEAD!!! Both no-copyright and the ones that are industry owned. I can't upload them all again, so I'll just do ones that people are requesting, meaning, put a comment in the post and if it's not the shit that got me fucked up, I'll reupload it again.
Apologies for the long read, the rakija might had something to do with it. ;)
