Front page ->mp3s gone for good
Posted 2002-08-13 18:37:46

You're probably wondering "Where are the mp3s?"
After attempting to raise enough money to cover one year of hosting, a total of which would have been $3600, I was unable to meet the goal. We collected, through some very generous donations, $300, but that is just not enough for me to afford keeping the site - it would just barely cover one month of hosting charges for a site this large.

It's with a heavy heart that I say good-bye to the mp3 section of BLTBM. For 3 years, without too many problems, I was able to provide a great service to fans of TMBG and hopefully create a place that people could find new songs by their favorite band. It was a lot of fun, and the tremendous support I got from the rest of the community was great. But it's time to move on, as much as I don't want to. I thank the band for not suing me out of existence and actually working with me on what songs were ok to host. I thank scratch and many many others for all their time spent adding/uploading/sending in content for the site. And I thank you, the visitor, for making it such a popular place.

I will keep the remainder of the site open, although I don't know how much value it is to people anymore, since the content here can now be found in a lot of other places. I hope you will stick around.

Finally, I haven't decided yet what to do with the mp3s that are sitting on a harddrive directly in front of me as I type this. I will post whatever I decide to do with it (donate it, sell it, etc) so that anyone else who has interest in perhaps picking up where I left off can do so.

Updates will probably be sparse from now on, but please enjoy what is left on the site.

- Adam

(P.S. - Also, thank you again to the people who donated their money to try and save the site. If you have donated money, I will be refunding it to you shortly after I sort things out with Amazon's payment system. Expect to hear from me soon on this matter).
