Thumbs down Bad Trader: ballsdeep

I cut and pasted this quote from the above thread. It's a line that I've heard from ballsdeep myself.

Sometime early last year, I was putting together a multi-cam of Van Halen's 2012 St. Louis show. ballsdeep mentioned that he had some footage from that show and he would send it to me if I wanted it. I got his footage and mixed it into the project and he seemed happy with the way it turned out, and a long exchange of emails followed in which he told me he had dozens and dozens of shows that were just waiting to be authored to DVD. I expressed interest in doing this for him. I concluded that the only practical way to do this was for him to put his raw videos on a hard drive. So in June 2013, I purchased a 2TB hard drive for $130 and sent it to him. I got regular reports from him about how he was transferring videos to the hard drive. It seemed like it would take a lot of time and work to transfer all the videos, but I was in the process from moving overseas to the US, so there wasn't any rush, as it would have to wait until after I finished my move.

In early October, I was finally was ready to get back into doing video projects, and I contacted him and told him I was ready to get started on the hard drive. He responded and mentioned he had this other hard drive (the one he mentioned in his above post) that was loaded with videos, but he couldn't access it. I asked him several questions about the drive, and did some research on it, but I never really got a good idea of how it operated. I was busy getting started in a new job, and didn't respond right away to an email he sent me on 8 October. And then on 10 October, he sent me a short email saying, "ok, I guess you're not interested...no worries, be well."

I replied and said it's not that I'm not interested in this other drive - it's that I had just started a new job and couldn't respond right away. We exchanged a few more emails discussing the other drive. His last email to me was on 26 October, and he said, "ok, again, it seems like you're not interested, so be well, sorry to have bothered you."

And that's the last I've ever heard from him. I've sent him numerous emails since then, I've PMed him here at TTD and at Dime (he logs into both sites daily), and I've asked other people to contact him on my behalf.

In my last attempts at corresponding, I told him if he's no longer interested in me working on his videos - that was fine. I simply asked that he send me back the new hard drive I sent him.

But not a word from him.

So a word to anyone considering any kind of a trade or transaction with ballsdeep: BEWARE.

Re: Bad Trader: ballsdeep

So wait, you're saying you sent him a drive and he told you he would do something with said drive.
He didn't, you asked him to return the drive.
Now he refuses to respond to your pm's several months later, yet he logs in here almost daily.

...sure sounds exactly like what he whined about someone else doing to him

HMMMMMMM Steve has sent me lots of stuff, and I've been slow getting to it. Always seemed honorable to me.

Re: Bad Trader: ballsdeep

I've been in contact with other people to whom he's sent stuff since he cut off communication with me. And that has a lot to do with why I finally spoke up after waiting over three months. In spite of him not replying to multiple emails and PMs from different sites, I was giving him the benefit of a doubt ... thinking maybe he was out on the road or on vacation or something.

But now I find out in the meantime he's been corresponding with other people and sending them stuff. So obviously, he's not dealing with me in good faith. In fact, he's flat out ripping me off.

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...d.php?t=100054

this is an interesting situation on many different levels, but there are actually a few key differences.


1. what I sent to trustthex was a drive full of music, on my nickel, a whole 16 gigs worth; whereas in this situation I was expected to fill up an UNsolicited 2TB harddrive (we were having vague discussions about doing something, then 4 days later this drive was at the doorstep) with ALL of my masters, going back to 2010

2. Mr. Silver Stallion (Randy) is not being completely forthcoming in regards to his timeline and how after being ignored for a 2nd time (the first time was from June 25 thru Oct 7 with nary a word; then after sending specific information about drive #2 to him on Oct 10-11, and not hearing a word from him for 2+ weeks again, I was like "fuck it, once my fault, twice his fault"...it would have been a LOT LONGER that 2 weeks, I imagine, if I'd not sent a "ok, you're not interested" note on Oct 26.

3. I never met Randy here, and he actually was contacting friends of mine thru FB that DO NOT TRADE HERE OR ON DIME asking about me...

4. being already rubbed a bit the wrong way by his lack of communication, it kind of weirded me out that not only was he soliciting friends of mine, but that when the shoe is on the other foot (being ignored) for him, he gets pretty impatient pretty quick. I ALSO was a bit peeved that he acted irritated that this friend of mine (Jort, in the Netherlands) was putting to DVD some Crowes videos from the Fillmore in 2010, and Randy implied that I'd """"""""promised""""""""" those videos to him when talking to Jort via FB

----------------------------------------------------------
MEMO TO RANDY:

----MY HARD DRIVE FAILED IN MY BRAND NEW CAMERA THAT WEEK (bought the cam in Nov of '10, and it kept having buffer override probs, apparently the top-end Sony handcams now top out at 32g internal drives, which kind of surprises me, I figgered they'd be up to a 500gig one by now)

----IT WAS A 120GIG MODEL, AND IT HAD BUFFER PROBLEMS FROM THE GET GO, BUT IT WOULD RECORD TO FLASH CARDS JUST FINE

----IN JAPANTOWN IN SF, A SINGLE 16GIG CARD, class 4 at that, WAS AROUND $50 @ WALGREENS

----SO, INSTEAD OF BLOWING $200 ON FLASH CARDS, JORT LOANED ME HIS SINGLE 16 GIGGER, AND WE DUMPED THE FILES ON 3 DIFF COMPUTERS EACH AND EVERY NIGHT

and, most importantly....

----JORT WAITED FOR THAT FOOTAGE FOR THREE YEARS, WITH NARY THE ATTITUDE YOU'VE PULLED ON ME IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS TIME (November thru January)


BOTTOM LINE: WITHOUT JORT'S CARD, THERE WOULD BE NO CROWES VIDEOS. HENCE, HE PRETTY MUCH HAD DIBS. AND HE WAITED THREE YEARS TO GET THEM
---------------------------------


the drive holds 1.8 TB, it is now 129 gigs short of being full....or yeah, it has just short of 1.7TB of material on there.

it sure as SHIT needs to be cloned, probably twice, before being sent.

90% of what is on it is UNTORRENTED, UNCIRCULATED MASTERS, most of the videos ARE tripod shot...probably an easy $40-50K spend on obtaining said footage and audio, as I live in Alaska, and don't drive (though will be getting the license back this year, I lost it in '06 and just never bothered getting it back, driving 300K miles in the 90's taping shows will do that to ya)...I've spent over $10K alone on plane tickets since 2010.





in November, when Randy's undies got all in a bunch when I was serving him the medicine he had previously served me(being ignored), I was also out taping a couple PJ shows, 3 Meat Puppets gigs, Nine Inch Nails, Band Of Heathens, and Monster Magnet, and celebrating a birthday

December is holiday month, and January is "recover from the holiday bills month".


throw in separating from the girlfriend in that 3 month timeframe as well (we still get along fine, I've moved across the street, no one is fucking anyone else, we talk daily and eat dinner together every night), and yeah, I've been a bit busy.


what was the question again?


oh yeah, I have no problem honoring my original commitment Randy, as I always do what I say I'm going to do. if you're itching to do some dvds, I now own a few 64g sticks, pick some shows and I can dump 'em and send 'em this week.

however, it's gonna be 2-3 months before I get loot together to clone the drive, and possibly longer if I go to Jazzfest and Beal in late April/May....IF the Foo Fighters and Fogerty get added to Beale's already awesome lineup, it's pretty much guaranteed that I'll go....pretty much ALL of the good acts for Jazzfest are playing the weekend before Beale (I'll miss Springsteen, boohoo), and Alice In Chains is in Tunica the day before Beale....hoping for some Blackberry Smoke, or Toadies, or Willie Nelson, or Emmylou Harris, or....



it never felt so good to be so bad.....

balls out.

Re: Bad Trader: ballsdeep

I am going to take the unprecedented step of posting my personal correspondence with Steve. I know it goes against internet etiquette. However, I feel I have been slandered to the point that this is the only real option I have. I have redacted a lot of information (last names, email addresses, home addresses, etc.). This isn't the entirely of our correspondence, as I didn't include emails that were not pertinent to the matter at hand (shows he was planning on seeing, filming techniques, long show lists, etc., etc,).

So it all started when I noticed this post that Steve made at Dime in a thread for a DVD that I had uploaded.




I sent him a PM and that got the ball rolling.



Looks promising doesn't it ... "You'll have footage in hand by this time next month."










Notice all the other shows that Steve starts talking about...



As you can see, I waited patiently ... for weeks and weeks. And even offer to send an SD card.













And here Steve starts telling me about all the stuff he has. So I make an offer to send him a drive to put it on to send to me for authoring.



And here Steve says "I could give it a shot...I've got a LOT of stuff." Sounds like he likes my idea of sending him a drive, doesn't it? But look what he wrote in his post above: "in this situation I was expected to fill up an UNsolicited 2TB harddrive (we were having vague discussions about doing something, then 4 days later this drive was at the doorstep) with ALL of my masters, going back to 2010."













Look at what is at the top of the first list that Steve sends me -- Black Crowes. Lots of Black Crowes. And by the way - I closed my Facebook account a couple of years ago. So that's a flat out lie that I contacted someone via Facebook. I contacted Jort via PM at Dime.



Very important point here - I clearly state that I'm moving back to the US in July. And I'll reach a point where I'll be out of the net and unable to work on shows. Steve says he'll shoot to mail the drive between 10-15 June.



Steve now has this "UNsolicitated" drive and is trying to figure out how to use it.





I continue to wait patiently ... and it looks like that 10-15 June date has slipped a little. But not by much.



Well ... maybe it is by much. I wait almost two months with zero communication from Steve, so finally I contact him.



Notice in his list of what he's "nailed down so far" Steve clearly lists Black Crowes shows.



It seems quite clear that Steve is sending me Black Crowes - so in the meantime, I've been tracking down soundboards for these shows.



So another month and half goes by ... with nary a peep out of Steve. But that's OK, as I told him, I was going to be living out a suitcase for quite a while. So no biggie.



Very key point here: "In roughly a month I'll clone the entire drive and wing it your way." So I shouldn't really expect anything until around November 7 or so ... right?



So here we start the discussion about the other drive Steve has. Steve goes weeks and months at times without saying a word ... I don't say anything for two days ... and now I'm "ignoring" him.




I haven't got a clue about this other drive ... so yeah ... I didn't respond to his email from October 11. But he's gonna be sending me the main drive sometime in early November anyway ... and I've already suggested he send this other drive with the drive I sent him. So what is there to talk about at this point?



Oh~!!! But maybe there was something to talk about and since I "ignored" Steve -- apparently that hurt his feelings.



I make a few attempts at trying to contact Steve ... but as we now know ... he was serving me my medicine for "ignoring" him.




You folks can read through this correspondence and decide for yourself who the bad guy is in all of this.

I don't see a "bad guy".


It looks like you have asked for a TON of footage spanning like 15 years or so.

Since we can assume collating his stuff for you isn't his full time job, you probably just need to have a bit more patience and you guys' projects can come to fruition.

Re: Bad Trader: ballsdeep

I can forgive the 4 month ignore over the summer, as I'd no idea you were moving, or I guess I should say "wasn't paying attention".

I also totally forgot the August correspondence on FB, as you never contacted me that way again, or if so, it was months and months ago.


as for the more recent ignores, you did the same to me twice in October, the 2nd time for 2+ weeks, over a simple question. (CAN YOU CONVERT/GET THE STUFF OFF OF THIS DRIVE?)


I will get to it when I get to it, as after you didn't reply in October, I've been working my way backwards on who I owe from 2010 (the Crowes footage), and am now at the beginning of 2012.

again, a 2TB drive is ALMOST FULL.

1800 mothafuckin' GIGABYTES.

there is a LOT of shit on there I didn't tape, from others I trade with, that has NOT been torrented...like the soundman from Bear's Tooth in Anchorage who relocated to Colorado 2 months after I met him.

and ijwthstd, he sent me .flac DVD upon .flac DVD of more untorrented goodies.

and 55 gigs of sweet Meat Puppets from popskull

and..........


if I'm the 1st "procrastinator" you've met in this hobby, well then shucky darned and slop the chickens.

it's not that the stuff hasn't been going onto the drive, but it's like, why would I send you a 2 TB drive with only 700 gigs, or 1200 gigs?

and why would I send the ONLY copies of EVERYTHING from the last 4 years thru the mail w/o backing 'em up?

and there's still nearly a TB on the unaccessible drive, so my apologies for the underestimation of what was there. there is a bit of audio duplicity in 2010 and 2011 with the 2TB drive, but all my 2010 and a large chunk of the 2011 vids are on it.


with love,

the baddest motherfucker on the top of the world, aka 129 to go (actually won't fill it up to the brim, will probably stop with 100 to go


p.s. Feb has 2 Bobcat gigs, Peter Mulvey AND Young Dubliners back-to-back then Ani DiFranco from the front row in Anchorage 2 days later on the 17th...if I go, I'll fly down, which is $300 r/t....that will eat up the "clone drive" money next month, easily.

Ying Yang Twins on March 1.


lookin' like a 3TB cloner, that's for sure.

BOTTOM LINE: I'M NOT SAYING YOU'RE A BAD GUY. I'M JUST SAYING THAT PATIENCE AND COMMON COURTESY ARE A TWO WAY STREET

just ask trustthex (BLAHAHAHAHA)

I never asked for ANYTHING (other than the Van Halen clips from one show). He made it known he had a lot of stuff he wanted authored to DVD, and I not only offered to do it for him, I sent him a brand new 2TB drive to facilitate sending it to me.

This is the second reference you've made to FB. I do NOT have a Facebook account. I haven't had one in a couple of years. Other than two posts from Dime, everything I posted above is from email.

When did I ever say a single word to you about you procrastinating? In spite of you making numerous promises to mail things out and never following through - and you going months without ever providing any updates ... I waited patiently one month after another.

I've been very patient.

Common courtesy?? You make up lies about me, and you have the balls to talk about common courtesy?

I seriously doubt that I'll ever get this drive back from you, so I'll tell you what. Just keep it for yourself. A $130 gift from me to you.
