My Loony Bun is Fine Benny Lava! Blogger on the other hand. . . just looney

Hey guys- there may be a break in uploading music files, because as it turns out (or at least I'm pretty sure) Blogger didn't just randomly eat my post- I believe they flagged it for the music file; the file was also deleted over at Divshare, so I'm trying to figure out what's going on. No actual notices were given. Granted, it was a new release- specifically the new James Bond instrumental, but it seems like more than a few people-- and some amazing blogs that actually can claim to stimulate purchasing of music-- on Blogspot are having this problem, including Berkeley Place which got dinged on a post full of indie artists who had given their permission, Setting the Woods on Fire has been having trouble and may be retiring (?!?) (also, read his thoughts on the matter- as always, very well expressed), and many others. . . and I'm wondering if that's why Giant Robots Make Me Nervous has been MIA? (Which would be a fucking crime-- Does anybody know?!) Anyway, I'm just trying to figure out a way to sort this out/get around this, so stick around, I'll do my best to keep posting regularly- the alternative is to link to pages featuring other's files (ie Skreemr), but we'll see. I'd rather not post a link to a link and have Blogger (or whoever) follow it and kill it there.

For now, enjoy "Benny Lava"-- this guy has taken what some Bollywood lyrics sound like and subtitled a vid with them. As if the video itself wasn't funny enough. Enjoy :)

Seems there's been a bunch of blogs recently that have been hit with post deletions, some being slapped with DMCA warnings too.

Kinda makes me glad I'm too lazy to blog much these days...

Hey b!
So I take a little time off and what then heck happens? - Blogger kills my profile, that's what! Granted, they'd sent several emails telling me I needed to change my template because they were not going to support the current one anymore, but all their warnings were shunted into my junk mail folder...and so I get to start again - http://romanticandsquare.
it's kind of nice to get a chance to refresh everything, but I wish I hadn't lost the posts - I have backups on some stuff, but not all of it...

I'm not sure what's going on with the web police killing off posts, it seems as though it's pretty much across the board, lots of folks are getting hit.
