In Defence of Boris

Couldn't come up with anything better.

No article on my blog has gotten more response than the one I did on Boris Ignatov. a music lover in Omsk, Siberia, Russia. Nearly everybody he asked for CDs thought he was a flim-flam man out to make a fast ruble. I can tell you hes not much different from any of us. Its just things are more limited where he is. He cares about the music enough that he wants authorised releases. Is that too much to ask? I don't mind getting pirate releases in return, as they go great in my collection and I have a few already (see earlier post).
As for Boris, please give him a chance to prove himself before lashing out on him. Eric, the debt he owes you, I'll pay it when I win the lottery. I'm sure there was a misunderstanding.
Even though I spent a bit getting CDs off that list, I am getting something in return. Its just tied up at "Origin Post" right now. I have less trouble doing this with someone in Ukraine! I hope recent events have nothing to do with the delay. I try not to get political with people. Too much vitriol.
I am considering putting an end to this trade thread eventually as I'm no Rockefeller myself! Some albums cost more than others. It just makes going to the same shops less boring.
If you hear from Boris for the first time, you can take it or leave it really. I don't regret taking it as it hasn't open my eyes a bit more.
