To ZFT:<br>IN 2002 I had the great idea of saving my videos to my PC and preserving them in digitial format. I then had the idea of selling copies of the VCD's on ebay. I did and then stopped at your request. <br>I am a longtime fan and would like to publicly apologize.  I will no longer buy or sell bootlegged items.<br><br>1993 was a bad year, I lost my father in May and FZ in December.  Then I threw my life away with heroin.  I sold all of my FZ treasures - LP's, CD's, books, and videos.  I've finally rebuilt most of the cd collection.  Listening to FZ now, clean and sober, is like hearing him for the first time. A great experience (though I wouldn't recommend doing it the way I did)!<br><br>I'm thrilled with the release of Baby Snakes, and Does Humor ... (not by you guys though ... hmmm).<br>I look forward to many more - especially Roxy!  WHEN???<br><br> :-[Happy New Year.

:)<br>Yeah - it did suck losing all of the FZ, not to mention about 2000 other LPs, 1000 cd's, hundreds of movies, a house, a wife, a son, and a  law license.<br><br>Zardoz - great to hear that. Many are not so fortunate.<br>Zardoz is a great film - bought the dvd for $6.00 recently!<br><br>Happy New Year to all.<br>
