Liquid TV...Aeon DVDgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
i know there's been a few threads on these already but i only just found this site and was wondering if anyone's actually got hold of episodes of Liquid TV and is Aeon available (all episodes + shorts) on DVD in the UK???

To anyone who is interested. After a search that took me years I've located all 3 seasons of Liquid Televsion including the Liquid Extract bonus feature. In the next few weeks I will be auctioning off copies on eBay. In my opinion this show was the best show to ever hit the air and my copies are the best quality you'll probably ever find. Contact me if interested.

Someone should report this guy to MTV. Hopefully ebay will kick him off their service.

Plus it shows a real lack of class using this forum as a business advertisement.

Practically every fifteen posts on this forum has someting to do with Liquid Television whether it is a question about a certain short or someone looking for the episodes, I too contributed posts on this forum in the past in hopes of finding the series. In almost everyone of those Liquid Television posts a user suggests "Check eBay for the tapes", "Someone's bound to be selling those on eBay", "Keep an eye out on eBay." I was trying to do a favour to those who were looking for the tapes. I've had the tapes for almost a year now, I didn't have to come hear and tell anyone this. I'm sure there will be countless more threads appeaing on this forum with the same topic of Liquid Television with someone else suggesting "Look on eBay." I'm doing a favour to the many people who cannot find the series, I'm providing them with the solution that countless others have suggested: "Check on eBay." Calling my post a business advertisement is a joke and hypocritical because there are countless fans of the show who have been waiting for an opportunity like this.

The words of a truly pathetic liar. If you're such a humanitarian why don't you just give copies of the tapes to the people who want them; taking as payment only the cost of shipping and the cost of a blank tape? You won't do this because you are a crook trying to profit by selling bootleg copies of someone else's work.
The fact of the matter is you read the posts, realized there was a demand for these episodes, and saw the opportunity to turn a tidy little profit. Nobody here is fooled by your pathetic attempt to vindicate yourself by claiming to be doing us all a favor.
That being said, I'm sure that you will make a decent profit because there is a demand for these episodes on this forum. Enjoy your dirty money.

he's chosen an unfortunate time to be doing this, since none of the major auction networks allow this type of auction anymore. ebay cut them off, then yahoo blocked it too, after years of allowing it.

If you can't but it, why is paying for a bootleg stealing?
Hope you do make some cash on knocking out bootlegs, obviously the networks aren't intrested in doing so . . .

The problem is that MTV has the licenses and they decided they were finished showing the series. So, as with ever other series that has been on MTV (ever tried to get copies of The State?), MTV buried it.
As far as I am concerned, those artists got their payout when they sold to MTV. And since MTV seems to think sitting on the series is the way to go, I will do whatever I can to have copies.
-- Ian Mclaren (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 12, 2002.
I agree with Ian,
Free propogation and re-exposure of their work can only help most of these artists now that MTV has buried all this stuff in the basement.
I'd happily pay a little more for the whole series on DVD if it was available from conventional sources, but I still want to find it in whatever form it exists. If a friend had a copy, I'd borrow it. If I asked him to copy them for me, I'd expect to pay him for his time.
MTV, eBay, and other such entities HAVE TO spread the copyright manure whether they give a damn or not about a particular show or feature. If they let one person sell copies, they have to let everyone do it. But I doubt the copies sold or the money generated from them in this case, would be enough to even raise an eyebrow at MTV.

So do I. As far as I'm concerned, MTV made it all possible, fine. But nobody stops a great concept - least of all, I should hope, MTV. I think that they know better than that and this forum is itself proof that (OPERANT WORD): we can do what the fuck ever we want to to this project. NOBODY would dream of stopping this - you want to call me a pirate, fine. But if you think of it, Mat Rebholz has been trying to hip us to a participatory virtual environment he has created just for us where we could be intervolving in something positive, collaborative and creative where we all could be creating together, all of us, our own new interactive episodes or original stories together at his FLUX/MUX site, (and I'm no example of diligence in that regard towards our unutilized or potential benefactor by any means, but -- )
Logo, please reconsider.

Sorry - I should point out for the sake of circumspection (or, if you will, to be blunt) that I, for example, am not the only writer or other creative for the show who will lose absolutely zero royalties or residuals in any event of its "piracy".

MTV is owned by Viacom, the same multinational who had the compassion to release "music behind bars" that Bill O' had the common sense to gripe about. Like they care!
I have read plenty bad about viacom, and none good whatsoever. Amen.

Well -- I wish I could just buy them cheap/ I want them -- but if they are going to be shitty quality or not play in my DVD player -- I would consider it a waste of time. Bootleg or not!!!!!!!!

The bottom line is...........ARE we able to purchase legit copies from MTV?
