THE NIGHT THE MUSIC DIED - "I Just Want To Screem!!!" (2008)

Okay, here's the deal!!! I'm just a little pissed off because last night I got an email that said Box.net was pulling the music we posted for "Fear Of The Mummy" because some person had complained about copyright infringement, and it kind of took the wind out of my sails. This blog is a lot of work without much gratification, but we do it out of love for the old movies and the music, and in an effort to bring a whole new life to a lot of stuff that has, and will be left behind in the next few years unless someone pays some attention to it. Our goal has always been to enlighten and to educate the world about these movies and all the forgotten people responsible. We don't advertise, and we don't make any money, because that's not why we do it!! It's actually quite a long and arduous process that includes tracking down the titles, watching and listening closely to the sound and music, doing extractions and capturing stills to enhance the whole presentation, and then trying to put it back into an abbreviated form that will make you more interested in seeing the whole movie! It's basically the same concept as a trailer, something made to try and grab your attention!!! It's very time consuming and costs us quite a bit of money. What do we get in return? An occasional comment! And then some person can just complain to box.net that they own the rights to something that is 50 years old, and virtually almost non-existent, and they can push a button and delete hours of work in 2 seconds!! So, whoever you are that owns the rights to "Fear Of The Mummy," if you're so damn protective of your possession, then do something with it! There are people out there that would pay good money to get a decent copy!!! So, Screw this! We're outta here until I feel good about it again!! In the meantime, go and check out the latest issue of Screem magazine, #17 for a whole tussle of info you'll dig!!

No, they do not own any rights to any music. "They" are sad, lonely people who like to feel important by tagging songs.

That poor, pathetic, little boy (I'll bet a year's salary on that one) is huddled in a corner, laughing, that he got the music pulled. THAT was the high point of his day. The internet equivalent of ringing a door bell and running away.

Keep up the good work and realize there are sad lonely people out there and this is their only hope on notoriety.

Bummer. Sorry to hear about this. I really look forward to reading this everyday. Thanks for all your hard work, I for one appreciate it.

Take some time off, relax, watch some killer flicks. Hopefully, your enthusiasm will return.

Peace,
Zilla
