A Quick Couple Of Things

Efen posted a video last week that really brought a smile to my face. Most of you probably read it over at his place, but for those that didn’t, I will post it here. I had never heard of the Acapella group “Straight…No Chaser” before, but I will keep my eyes and ears open for more of them.

Laura was nice enough to bestow me with an award. I think the image speaks for itself.
FUCKIN' A!

She had originally read a post titled “You Know Who I Hate?” and like it so much, that she came back for more. I guess that is why I got this fuckin’ award. I don’t know if it’s a good thing, or a bad thing.

Seeing as I don’t want to be alone, I will also pass this award on to Canucklehead because I like that fucker, and I think that we are somehow related. Our live are uncannily similar, and he is just as ugly as I am.

Garrick (I can’t link to his blog because he still doesn’t fucking have one!) should be somewhere back in the US for a few days now. I would imagine that he and his significant other are sitting in an airport somewhere along the east coast delayed or looking for their Swiss Army luggage. He is supposed to stop by Tuesday, the 23rd for a while. (I’m writing this post on Monday…but it won’t publish until Wednesday, so the above comment about Garrick will be outdated by the time you read this. HUZZAH!)

I finally got around to upgrading the blog to WordPress version 2.7. I wasn’t expecting such a drastic change in the admin panel, and boy was I surprised. Everything has been moved or changed in one way or another. The wordpress update also required that I update the theme to the latest version. With this upgrade there are some new features. One that I really like is the Nested Comments feature. A commenter can now directly reply to another commenter, and those comment will nest below each other.

Lest I forget…

Merry Christmas!

    Bucky; Thanks for giving me ‘props’ but I’m sorry to say those vids have been taken down 🙁 The reason being as follows:

    On Saturday last week Warner Music Group ordered YouTube to remove all music videos of their artists from the site, as negotiations between the two groups crumbled. There are literally thousands of video’s that could be pulled from YouTube because of this order.

    Negotiations between YouTube and WMG broke down Saturday because supposedly they were asking for a larger share of YouTube profits. Although it is not said how much WMG was asking for, they were quoted as saying “We simply cannot accept terms that fail to appropriately and fairly compensate recording artists, songwriters, labels and publishers for the value they provide.” It seems YouTube wouldn’t oblige the request as they now have to pull all music videos under the WMG label, and also music video under Warner/Chapelle group as well.

    WMG was one of the first major media companies to make a deal with YouTube in 2006, and since they are pulling out (and taking their videos with them), the other media groups paired up with YouTube may be asking for better compensation as well. Sony Music Entertainment, and EMI Music are among the other groups who are currently signed with YouTube.

    WMG’s video pull is a tough blow for YouTube, and it has come at a bad time, since Hulu is hot on their heals. From here we can only wait and see if the other media groups follow WMG’s lead and try to hit YouTube up for some more cash as well.

    Oh well….

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
