Well, what comes around goes around, and THE REAL MAN came arounnd and shut down the site. Apparently the lawyers of Johnny Cash layed down their law and force SBCGLOBAL to shutdown the site.
If anything I think I generated revenue for the Johnny Cash estate with some record sales, but for all of you wondering why you couldn't get to the movies, thats why. It suspected it might happen and was hoping it wouldn't, but it did, so I'm done!
So until I comeup with something original, I'm out of the movie biz for awhile. It sucks because I'mnot a musician or an animator) I knew it was too good to last and it was.
So with that, I thank you all for your support. I'm glad that they made it through the election and I thank you all for you kind words of support! Too bad because I had a killer one on the MSM in the works, but even though the songs are not in their entirety, the weasels got napster on my....well you know! :
Thanks again to all of you. If I can whip something original (then all I have to worry is about the photographers rights) I'll post again!
Awww, dang it. Bummer, Bommer! You done good, and you are fun!
Those mean, nasty lawyers! :-) Anyone else have some bandwidth where we can hide Bommer's other non-Johnny Cash related movies?
Sorry to hear it. It was great work.
Truly enjoyed your stuff.
Hell,damn,and blast! Your movies really are fantastic and everyone who has seen them,just LOVES them!
total bummer that video was awesome
don't those lawyers know The Man's comin' round for them next?!?
What about "Blue"?
Hey, Jim Robinson, how about a "Bommer-athon"? raise funds for a new Bommer site.
Strange how they can shut you down but they can't shut down the terrorist websights were they chop off peoples heads and directtheir troops
Really enjoyed all of your movies!!
That's a shame, Bommer! I loved your movies and shared them with friends. With the lawyers and estates, it's all about the money, ya know? You did great though and thanks for putting those movies together up during a time when some needed encouragement and humor. Bravo!
You can buy the rights to songs. I have a friend who makes photo videos for adoptive parents(pictures from their adoption journeys) and she looked into what she would have to do to use songs legally. There are ways, but it's not cheap(in some instances).
I have to say that I FULLY enjoyed your videos and they reduced me to tears every time I watched them. You have talent. I hope you can find a way to use it again.
The copyright laws are in need of a major 21st century reform.
Too many creepy lawyers, we need lyer reform!
If a dead man can come around, I guarentee you LeAnn Rimes is waiting somewhere in the wings with open paws!
