Buying MJEML vinyl (that doesn’t exist) on Amazon Part 8: Threats from Nandha

The complete combined story has been presented in a single post here.

We return to the saga of buying The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library‘s Volume One on vinyl…only problem is…it’s not released on vinyl.

I like to put a face to the name, but the
use of the picture resulted in a legal threat, so we have
switched to using this artist’s rendition.

Once again, I like to put a face to the name.
This is the best picture I could find of someone named
Nandha Kumar.
Violin players do frighten and intimidate me.
I will now assume that this is who I am talking with at Amazon.

Hello friend,

There must be some confusion here. Amazon.com representative Nandha Kumar told me that he was “sorry to hear the item you received doesn’t met your expectations,” and that “if in andoutrecords isn’t responding to your requests for a return address or pay return shipping cost, please feel free to donate or dispose  the  music–whichever is most convenient for you.” As I am not a fan of Throbbing Gristle and neither are Marvin nor Gertrude (who is still in Portland by the way), I am going to follow Nandha’s suggestion. Frankly, while I do want to go with your wishes, Nandha has exhibited unstable behavior in the past and I am scared for my safety. If I were to return this record without a return label, Nandha would be very angry. You wouldn’t like Nandha when he is angry. Confidentially, I had been talking with Yokesh K. before Nandha and I think Yokesh may have been forcibly “removed” by Nandha. What else could explain the rapid changeover? Yokesh seemed concerned for Marvin and Gertrude’s safety, but Nandha just doesn’t seem to care. Mistreatment of animals is a sign of psychopathic behavior and I just am not sure what to think. Please don’t tell Nandha that I told you this. Unless you can offer guaranteed protection from Nandha, I am just not sure what I can do.

In fear,
Michael J. Epstein
