What the fuck are you talking about, efader? What is your beef with Mr Haughey? Why don't you start up a little "Haugheylog" a la winerlog? Why do you remain anonymous? Are you, too, dead at thirty-two? (Wow, that scans!-- sort of)

Come on, people... he's not that anonymous, if you put a little elbow grease into it; all information was discovered on public sites, so all usual caveats about accuracy apply.

His name is Eric Fader, and he appears to run a website, auto industry online. There's an about page and contact page (if you want to send a little message to our efader). There also purports to be forums, but I assume that the site is either in development, or he realizes that MF users would probably come talk to him on his forums if they were implemented.

From what I can find, you can email Eric directly at and

BTW, I just realized that if that email address is correct, then efader also has a toll-free phone number, which should be listed on his home page. (Of course, if that's not our efader, then this information is wrong...)

From what I can tell, the point of is a cheap publicity stunt to draw attention to the creator's own digital music site.

>i was refering the the site!!!!!!!!

uh, a little context on your link would have been nice.

If I do anything with, it would be to either:

a). take donations to a music charity that supports artists and mp3s


b). sell t-shirts with a quote from Lars saying "I don't want our music traded as a commodity, it's art"
