"The file (Toothpaste [1983] Toothpaste EP.rar) violates the MediaFire Terms of Service. Due to it being distributed from your account, it has been removed. Also, a Strike has been placed against your account and can lead to a termination of service."

Yeah, well, mediafire caved long ago and this was bound to happen. They've been picking at my files for months and months. I'd been planning on a  migration to adrive or somewhere, but it's gonna take some time to gather everything I've put up thus far. That said, I can't imagine who could be legitimately making claims about that Toothpaste EP. The 'label' that released it, Schwa, was just a dude from Silver Abuse putting out SA/Toothpaste records. But none of that matters, the claim was probably made by Atlantic or 20th Century Fox or some other rotting 20th-century culture hoarder.

At least a lot of the stuff I post is freely available through bandcamp or youtube. The rest seeps through the cracks ...


  1. Thanks for the bit of illumination about why so much of the former mediafire smorgasbord has gotten blocked lately. I understand in-print items that are for sale on iTunes or other online vendors, but why block tiny, out-of-print releases? Do big labels just make huge blanket claims? Whatever the case, it's a shame.

  2. i see..i just asked for the toothpaste - come on to be reupped..maybe you could try bundling the toothpaste stuff together and name it something else or just numbers--but link from here so people know what it is? in any case thanks for your efforts/blog is great
