R.I.P. RAM IT ON YOUTUBE

So I get an email about an hour ago from youtube claiming copyright infringement on my Rammers “Ram It” video.  I get it – someone else owns the rights to this video so I shouldn’t be posting it.  I did a little more research on the individual who claimed copyright infringement and found out it’s the same woman, Julia Meyer, that is pulling the “Super Bowl Shuffle” off of shared video sites.  I don’t mean to be rude here, but what the fuck is wrong with you, Julia?  She’s currently suing viacom because MTV and VH1 both played the “Super Bowl Shuffle” without her permission.  Her late husband made the video and passed the rights to her.  She claims that MTV and VH1 undermined her sales by playing the video.  Good Lord.  Give it a fucking rest.  It’s 2011.  When are these old balls going to realize that the world is different now?  You can’t go suing every Tom, Dick, and Harry because they played your video or your music and didn’t ask for permission.  This is the same bullshit thinking that got the record business in trouble.  The old guard doesn’t realize that multiple impressions are the key to sales.  Julia, let youtubers post your clips.  Make it available for the general public.  Put it on itunes.  The only reason I lifted the Rammers “Ram It” video in the first place was because I couldn’t find it anywhere and people needed to see it.  If you want $1.29 for it or $9.99, I’ll pay it so I can watch it over and over again.  If you’re in the hurt tank for cash, I apologize for offending you.  I don’t know your late husband and won’t pretend to know what his thoughts might be on this subject, but if he was such a tremendous Bears fan then wouldn’t he want more people to see it.  Maybe not.  Maybe I’m just one of the few that believes music and movies and youtube clips should be ubiquitous.  I can watch and listen to everything on my phone.  I don’t mind paying for it, but don’t be a brat about it because it will come back to bite you in the ass.  My Rammers video is no longer on youtube, but there are plenty more you can choose from (see below).  Continue to claim copyright infringement and sue everyone you can, Julia.  You can’t stop technology.  It’s here.  Someone will just take it and repost.  It’s already out there.  Find a different way to monotize “The Super Bowl Shuffle.”  The interest will always be around.  Just be smart about it. 

Julia Meyer:

And if you’re wondering what I received from posting my video of “Ram It”…well, i received absolutely nothing.  I don’t get ad revenue or money every time someone watches it – just the satisfaction that other people think it’s as funny as I do.

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?

The above photo is headline news.  I saw the story an hour ago on my twitter feed from @BreakingNews.  Is this really news?  Whore gets upset at beach and gets arrested.  That’s not news.  Maybe that’s why no one pays any attention to mainstream news now.  It’s trash – much like reality TV.  I know it’s a ratings game and the jersey shore brought in 5.3 million viewers last night, but come on people.  We are headed to a future much like the ones portrayed in WALL-E and IdiocracySo sad.

ROXETTE – THE LOOK

It’s a Friday Free For All so I’m going to post whatever I feel like today.  I used to watch this video and think 3 things: 1) Why does this chick have a dude’s haircut? 2) Is this chick dating the dude in the Zebra pants? 3) Would I hit that chick with the dude’s haircut? 

Spend some time thinking about those things…ok?

VAMPIRE WEEKEND – HOLIDAY (VIDEO)

Probably one of the dumbest videos I’ve ever seen; however, I can’t help but enjoy it.

MTV DROPS “MUSIC TELEVISION” FROM LOGO

I grew up watching videos on MTV.  I’m not shocked by this news since they haven’t played a video since Clinton was in office.  It is a bit depressing to see them put the official nail in the coffin.  I guess they now have full reign at as much shitty reality programming without criticism from the people that remembered when they were music television.  Bravo MTV.  Now get to work on the next season of the Jersey Shore (kidding cause your station sucks ass).

MTV TO REMAKE TEEN WOLF

teen-wolf

Why?!?!  Leave 80’s classics alone please.  MTV, why do you have to go and ruin EVERYTHING?  What happened to music videos?  What happened to credibility?  What a shit cable channel.  Someone in this world has some new ideas hidden somewhere.  I just know it.  News of a Karate Kid remake broke my heart in two pieces.  Now it’s in four.

Oh and leave Brittney alone too:
