RJ is still around as he is deleting comments off MTS' facebook page. he never responded to emails in the first place so you can't base how long he's been MIA off that. he got a tattoo just a few weeks ago and bragged about it on his tumblr and instagram. once peopl caught wind and started giving him shit about it he abruptly deleted his personal twitter, facebook, tumblr and instagram accounts.

he is definitely around, just avoiding this entire situation hoping it will go away like he has done pretty much since September when the first release date was missed. any time he said anything it was a complete and total lie anyway. everyone that used to work for MTS, the lone 2 people, have quit within the last month for whatever reason (and i don't blame them for doing so). Buddy wiped his hands clean a long time ago and no longer has ties with MTS.

Paypal, Universal Records, the local NYC government and the Feds are all digging into the situation and RJ himself. Universal has been aware of the situation for a few months now, but this latest missed release date should reignite their curiosity. Paypal shut down, or at least put a temporary freeze on RJ's paypal account late last week so it can't receive or send money (the later throws a monkey wrench into refunds, but it's not like RJ would do it anyway at this point). dozens of people have filed complaints online with the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dca/html/con...act_form.shtml

and they already have several investiagations open. and dozens of people have filed complaints with the federal government here: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

in regards to Paypal; anyone out money with this TOYPAJ deal NEEDS to call Paypal, not send them an email or fill out their contact form. if the person you speak to tells you "there is nothing they can do" it's a load of bullshit. call back later to speak to someone else who will actually help you. Paypal's customer service is great, but it's hit or miss. it all depends on who you get on the phone. some people don't care and don't want to deal with anything so they will try to get you off the phone as quickly as possible. others are actually helpful and will assist in opening up a claim even though it's past the 45 day window, some of these helpful people even gave out a courtesy$25 refund on top of any refund a claim will give.

This-- guys if you used PayPal definitely call.

Ordered Dude Ranch, Enema and S/T from SRC at the beginning of February and none of them have shipped. Anybody else never get theirs either?


Oh, and LOL at my preorder for "Blue Skies, Broken Hearts" from MTS. I'm sure I'll see that one on May 1st.
Dude Ranch and Self Title arrived fine. Did not order Enema though cause I had it. I think almost everyone got those already. You did not get the cokebottle clear ones did you?

I hope the 10" is true from Hot Topic but just went ahead and got a TOYPAJ from ebay. Did I pay more than I should of? ...yes but I was gonna pay 60 for this whole package. With the money saved was able to get the variant of Neighborhoods that i wanted. (black and white marble). I normally dislike Hot Topics but they press quality vinyl without delay.

This is pretty much why I enjoy working there.

Yeah, but they also have a shitload of money and are owned by a corporation. Not making excuses for MTS at all because those guys fucking suck, but Hot Topic has way more resources.

I'd contact SRC directly if that is the case.

Hahaha yea, they've told me on two different occasions they were going to ship me it but never have. Their Facebook page has a lot of people commenting the same stuff. I wonder what their deal is.

Blink really isn't good music for vinyl anyway. My Enema of the State sounds awful.

Tempted to call Paypay but I really just want the record. I mean if people are getting their money back now, I don't see why they wouldn't give me my money back whenever it comes it (if it comes out) that the product will not be delivered. Just my thought.

Wait I'm really confused to what's going on here. Is the TOYPAJ pressing by SRC being delayed? Or is it still the MtS pressing that's being held back again?

Edit: to those who have not yet receiver their copy of ANY vinyl, I'm sorry and hope they come soon.
