Here is a link to five-year-old music blog Pop Tarts Suck Toasted, which you will notice doesn’t work, because Blogspot apparently wiped it out, much to PTST mastermind Patrick Duffy’s public dismay. Reached out to him just now: He’s waiting for an official explanation from Blogspot but has his suspicions:
“I get DMCA takedown notes almost every other week,” he writes. “It’s ridiculous, but I always remove the offending mp3’s … it seems that I hit the maximum number of complaints and they removed everything! Working now to copy as much as I can and move it somewhere else temporarily, most likely poptartssucktoasted.com, which thankfully I already own.” He adds that a couple other music blogs got abruptly axed as well today. Lars Ulrich was unavailable for comments.
