I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. I’ve considered starting a mashup music blog to share all the music I find and like from places like Get Your Bootleg On.

    DJ Riko is a regular over there. If I remember right, he also lives in Cleveland, though I’ve yet to find out where he DJs around here.

  2. Hi, thank you for mirroring the torrent file for this release. I came home from work and wanted to snag it, only to find it unavailable. Took me a while but I finally found your page… so thanks again. Peace.

  3. How can you leave out…

    Dread Zeppelin’s “Presents” album?

    Best Led Zep-inna-reggae-style-with-Elvis-impersonator-lead-singer band inna world, mon!

  4. Damn, that’s a fine mix. That, and it’s a hell of a lot better than the crap I’m going to be stuck listening to in the shopping mall.

    Yours truly,
