new vital info.

I'm sorry to say that requests are closed for the time being. I got a few too many notices re: digital copyright for my taste. It was a little strange because not all the complaints were, I think, legitimate. However, the fact remains that there are other links up and I don't think it would be a good idea to contest anything. I am thankful, again, that Blogspot & Google have stopped completely eradicating the post-- I am here because I like to write. Being able to physically spread my love of music in the form of files was a pleasurable icing on the cake.

I am also hesitant to link to actual files on individual sites because somebody clearly filed these complaints and I don't want to leave a trail that will do damage to someone else. I will continue to do my best, though, to make music available in some form.

I will not be taking down any files or links unless requested to do so -- and it has always been my policy to respond promptly to such requests-- so it is worth it to see if the files are still up. They oftentimes are. It is also relatively easy to search for the files online. There are many guides on how to do that. Some pointers-- just be careful and use common sense. Some people out there suck. Other people are really fucking awesome, and if you are able to, I would recommend patronizing other music blogs and I urge you to always, always, always leave a note or comment of thanks.

Here are, for reference's sake, the old guidelines.
