.Yes sir, not long after I updated Saturday's entry at 9:30 p.m. the frugal fury of Irene began throwing branches and trash cans about the neighborhood. Shortly after midnight my household joined the nearly 150k that lost power in the county and it wasn't restored until about 11 this morning.
Anywho, as an unfortunate follow-up to Massacre Video debuts inaugural VHS and DVD release with 555, the release is currently delayed due to snags with the ever-reliable PayPal. To my understanding, Massacre Video had everything in order and was going to use the pre-order funds to pay for the final pressings and then begin shipping out the finished products to those that ordered. Seems reasonable and knowing Louis from online correspondence he's certainly not one to fuck people over, but PayPal is harder to convince. I'll try and keep everyone abreast to what's going on, after all, I really want my MV VHS copy!
"If you may have noticed, the Massacre Video store is temporarily down. Long story short, PayPal feels that I should not be able to spend any of the pre-order money to make the product! They refuse to unlock the money until I ship the product out, which is counterproductive because without the money I can not pay for the product to be created, so how could it be shipped? After speaking to PayPal representatives for hours on end, I realized I hit a brick wall and they do not care about the little company or how they could possibly corrupt it.
Within a day or so I will post again to let everyone know what is currently going on with the pre-orders!
TO EVERYONE WHO HAS PRE-ORDERED, YOUR ORDER WILL BE HONORED!
I have put a lot into this project already for it to fail at the last second due to a greedy multi-billionaire company such as PayPal. I will work diligently to make sure that this is solved in the fastest manner possible.
Thank you so much to everyone that has pre-ordered and please bear with me while I try to fix this shit storm! -Louis"
