Bringing back ZOSO!!

I am bringing back my Led Zeppelin bootleg site (Zoso.me). I am looking forward to a change–and to sharing more Led Zeppelin. I am excited to share more of my personal collection of Led Zeppelin bootlegs–as well as the bootlegs and other recordings that already circulate!

I don’t know how well I will balance working on ZOSO with work on Purple Hippies and Spinster Bootlegs. But really, I am looking forward to doing something different. ZOSO.me has been ‘on hold’ for a long time,


Unfortunately, the last two months of the year have turned out to be very busy for me with *work*–i.e. my professional activities that pay for the purchase of bootlegs, the blog, and filefactory storage–and, of course, which allow for my *time* to do postings of new bootlegs here.

In three to four weeks, I expect to be able to resume posting here at Purple Hippies, on a more regular basis.

All DVD Links Are Dead

For those who may have missed my earlier post regarding mega.nz links, I wanted to be more explicit:

All DVD links are currently dead. It will take a while to re-upload the DVDs, either to FileFactory or to new mega.nz accounts.

There will also be a delay, while I decide on my “next” strategy for sharing DVDs here. I appreciate the speed of mega.nz downloads and uploads when I post DVDs. But the frequency with which recordings get “taken down” for alleged copyright infringement is frustrating–especially since the items in question are *not* official releases. Also, five “take down” notices on a mega.nz account results in that account being deactivated. Since I pay, both for ample storage space and no restrictions on file transfers (up or down)–losing an account means losing the cost of the remainder of my “PRO” subscription.

For now, I am going to focus on sharing new CD bootlegs… 🙂

Here We Go Again (the Mega links)…

I have just deleted all Purple Hippies-related mega.nz links in my current mega account. One of the DVD sources (a Black Sabbath DVD) was taken down. I have not yet removed the links on the Purple Hippies web site, but will do so as quickly as I can.

I hope to put the DVDs back up, in the near future. Likely I will try using numerical file names, as I have done for the audio sources that are on FileFactory.

I have pro-actively deleted the public Purple Hippies links in my mega.nz account, as I want to protect the account from getting suspended. I am using this account to privately share almost 2 TB of non-Purple bootlegs — and I don’t want to jeopardize that project.

A Side Project

During the last few weeks I’ve been working on a side project, collecting Rush DVD and BluRay sources, which I will be sharing (in a private group) on my mega cloud drive.

During the phase of downloading new DVDs, it was easy to multi-task. But this week I have been focused on *uploading* these sources to mega.nz. This kind of monopolizes both my primary computer and my internet connection.

I am nearing the end of this Rush project, and will resume regularly posting bootlegs here early next week.
