I Am Very Angry

The Vinyl Villain has been pulled this morning. I got in touch with JC to see if there was a problem as he hadn't posted for a few days and on Blogger it said that the blog has been removed. JC was unaware of anything but checked and it appears that the Man has decided to pull the blog for copyright violations. If I hear anymore I will let you know.

Good Lord, the first thing I thought when I wasn't able to enter his site earlier on was 'DMCA', but then I went: 'internet at work is really slow again today, so let's try later. Surely some internal mistake ...'.

Now I know better and I do hope Jim finds another platform soon.

All the best to you, mate: don't give up!

Hi everyone

Still getting over the shock. I hadn't posted for a few days as I've been in bed with a bout of the flu...couldn't believe it when Drew got in touch by text this morning.

TVV is dead. Long live New TVV

Yay, welcome to wordpress!! Crappy thing to happen, but glad to see you bounce right back.

Simon said...

Works fine for me Drew.

drew said...

Got it now

Swiss Adam said...

Fucking wankers. You keep going right on JC.

Very, very sorry to hear this. BACK UP YOUR BLOGS people.

drew said...

Have been trying to export my blog posts to Wordpress for a week but only the titles are importing.

Any ideas?

THE FUC... well Swiss Adam has already said it.

Long live TVV !

This is full on BS! A dear friend just disappears into the ether! When are they going to learn that this is never going to work and totally self-defeating to the industry? Good luck JC, we're with you all the way.

Speechless and spluttering.

Swiss Adam said...

@Drew Mine is backing up fine so don't know what the problem is. They've recently redesigned the dashboard at Wordpress- maybe your settings have changed accidentally.

drew wingate said...

Mine's only appears to import the titles and the comments no text.

Glad to see JC is fighting back -you can't keep a good man down.
He has introduced me to some great music

I have just discovered onestepbrighter has also gone while lying in a tent in Cornwall listening to torrential rain!! It's happened before and it'll happen again, I'll be back though soon enough. Keep the faith.

Re: Friend of Rachael Worth, Come Fine Yourself went a few weeks ago - its replacement is Mixed Bizness.

Alex G said...

Mixed Bizness and Turn On Your Record Player have vanished overnight as well.
