... and I do believe our dear Reggie is going to be famous! :D

Rolling on Stealth Mode: Meet the Crafty Motherfuckers Bootlegging Coachella Every Year (http://noisey.vice.com/blog/festival-bootleggers-coachella-recordings)

“Primarily, I tape for myself,” says Reggie, a veteran taper and moderator for concert recordings hub The Traders’ Den. “I enjoy being able to listen to my recordings and relive the experience. A well-done audience recording can put you at the show. Yes, it’s not as clean and pristine as an official live album, but that is the beauty of it. You hear the crowd. There are no overdubs—any mistakes still exist. It’s real. There are fantastic moments of music that will only ever be heard by a limited number of people, because they happened on a stage. Taping helps bring those moments to those who choose to find them.”

I've never been to Coachella, and he didn't mention my location, so I think I'm safe. :)

Then I am definitely safe. :lol:

Dan Lynch, founder of the website NYCTaper.com, has abandoned stealth tactics altogether, only recording bands who give him permission ahead of time. He thinks bootleggers are the “bottom of the barrel,” but he’s not cool with people who sneak in recording devices just to share sounds for free.

“I just don’t agree with it and I don’t think people should be doing it,” he says. “It’s not good for anyone. It opens up tapers to being accused of being dishonest, and we’re trying to change that opinion.”
STFU :rolleyes:

Yeah, but he's had that holier-than-thou attitude for years, ever since his blog got some attention.

Is there much of a bump in pageviews or new members when TTD is mentioned in the media?

The desired effect is to be able to toy with them for a thread or two until they lose their shit and ask the mods to ban them in all CAPS while calling everyone retarted.

I don't know if that's the desired effect, or just the usual effect. :lol:
