I Guess I'm Just A Little Too Sensitive

It's no secret that I've been neglecting the blog lately. My time has been taken up with my eBay store (Displaced Music) and associated auctions. I've been like a kid in a candy store buying stuff I normally wouldn't look at for this venture. It reminded me that however much I go on about the 80's, that there is still a lot of great music being produced today, if you care to look for it.

My main reason for continuing MFL was the pleasure I got from ripping some obscure old singles. Well, the UK post office has still to deliver 9 singles I purchased nearly three months ago, so I put the vinyl to one side. Then, I get this comment:

No offense, but is there a lot of point in posting something in this kind of quality? It sounds like you found this under a tire somewhere.

I'm thinking that if this comment (for this post) had been by somebody I know who regularly posts pristine quality rips on their hard-earned blog, I would take it in good heart. But it's very dispriting to get this anonymously when the single in question was ripped at 320kbps, cleaned up using software, and trimmed with the same care I have done with all my transfers. So now, I'm not going to bother with it anymore.

I have a new blog associated with my eBay store here. But that's yer lot for MFL. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

[UPDATE: Obviously, I'm still here. I thought about deleting the post but as I got a lot of decent comments from friends, followers and fellow bloggers it's worth keeping. For the record, I'm glad I kept this blog going. I still enjoy it immensely. MFL August 2012]
