There have been exciting weeks in terms of GN'R releases, official or not. To ask for more in some disrespectful way is smth. i usually never comment. But fans need an update on this.
Transfers, time and promo tapes:
In general if you dont want/need the best raw transfers, then enjoy the already circulating versions or watch youtube. A quick transfer not being done properly will give you just ok/good quality but not the best. But i'm in for the best only. It's as simple as that. From my experience you need to do multiple transfers on different very good equipment to get the best one, the one to go out. Now imagine 150min show. 5x transfers = 750min and then you dont have verified anything yet. But you have to. In real time. Then it's small editing time. Then verifying again. Audio editing, synching not even touched by then etc. etc. So this is all just a very time consuming hobby, nobody is getting or wanting any cent for it. I've seen GN'R transfers from official companies, people paid much $$ for, but they were all worse than what i could do with the source tapes little later.
But add that i'm busy with life as hell. The part i should apologize for is that i can get a bit lazy at points, but that's mainly because i dont want to spend ALL my freetime on this hobby only. Right now it's Guns in europe and it's kick-ass!
It's not my fault with the non-release of the promo tapes. But there might be a solution, let's keep it like that.
Now as for the longer list above in question:
E-Mails have been exchanged, it all looked good and i was promised to get a tracking number from the package 3 weeks ago. And i never got that or a package. The dude didnt respond any Email of mine anymore. Contact just stopped on his side.
Now....i'm generally positive thinking and off course the list looks exciting as hell! But i'm in trading business before UYI came out, so i've seen and was offered lots of hilarious things. And in similar deals it's always stopping right before the deal (family/life trouble, plans changed, legal issues, package got lost, communication stops, whatever....) and you never receive anything. You dont even get a proof from the existence of the shows! This is, nowadays, easy to do with just like filming a short clip from tv/computer with your mobile. He said to me he had the tapes being transfered by a company. So he could easily prove us the existence of the shows. Just ask him to do that, so we dont have to discuss probably non excisting show sources and me being the bad guy.
