Not sure about that, many fans listen to Revolution 9 more than once (and have listened to it countless times) and Carnival of Light sounds more interesting.

Nah, guys, you mix that up with the infamous and even more sought after sex tape. ;)

Where's Caitlin, by the way...?

lol@sex tape :lol:

Blur were too drunk in the 90's, you know what that does to *coughs* performance :lol: So not much of an orgy and probably just a bunch of skinny guys cuddling and girls looking unimpressed :|

But hardcore fans aren't who labels cater to with releases like these...they don't care if several hundred diehards buy it...it's only worth it to them if tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of casual fans will buy it. CoL would have more interest and sell way more simply because it's the Beatles, obviously.

Which they can then use to pay their legal fees when EMI come after them. Sounds like a plan! :roll: :lol:

Or maybe they do it completely anonymously like anyone who would ever upload this film would

You don't get it, the person who owns it knows who got it, we are talking about 10 people here

I know and I was being careful to separate any mention of B-Roads.

Things have leaked before when far fewer people have had access

Yes, but people have been sued for leaking far more boring things.

Look, let's be realistic, it's gonna get out there one day. Whether it's leaked or formally released, who knows. But given what kicked off the last time someone tired to get it out there, people can't be blamed for not leaking. I'm a tiny 23 year old and I'm sure as hell not going to take the risk of EMI coming after me or losing my job if I have charges pressed. And I'm not going to potentially put anyone else in that situation, cause as it's been said before, if it does leak it's not going to take them long to figure out who passed it around initially.

Yes, it's easy to leak things online. With a bit of effort, you can make sure it's relatively untraceable back to you. But given I can't guarantee that the people who passed it around initially wouldn't be found, I'm not gonna take the risk of having them thrown under the bus.

Anyway, back to the orgy...

Where Did the idea of the "sex tape" come from anyways?

I'm sure that if there's a market for deluxe Bananarama 2CD & DVD reissues there's a market for an alledgedly mediocre Blur documentary.
