Point taken. UR seemed to be asking for ideas and maybe financial help so I
had been thinking of something like a benefit album of various "Unauthorized
Remixes" of the Sony bootleg track. If it's not needed, never mind.

in order! But they definitely don't need the money!

This reminds me of a question I've thought of a couple of times but never
asked. Isn't appropriation inherently reactionary?
