Do you guys remember my Blitzkrieg Spock video? Where I got bored, took various pictures of the kids' Kirk and Spock action figures fighting all over the house to the tune of the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop" and turned it into a video? And the video actually looked like some weird Kirk/Spock sex thing? And it was somewhat amusing?
Well YouTube allowed Warner Music Group to mute the audio of said video.
Because even though I wasn't paid to make the video and I didn't charge people to watch the video, Warner Music Group is a bunch of preemptive jackasses. Oh, no, forget the fact that maybe watching my stupid little video will get someone interested in the Ramones' music and want to download it. Don't even bother to give me the option of adding a link to download said song. Or, gee, maybe add the video to the WMG channel on YouTube. Or maybe, I don't know, use COMMON FUCKING SENSE! *Pant, pant*
No, just delete the audio with no warning or notification to me, the creator of said video.
USSR, people. I'm just sayin'.
So, I have re-uploaded the video to Vimeo. And if it again gets screwed by "The Man" then I'll upload it somewhere else. And write another post about WARNER MUSIC GROUP and how much they SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF OUR CREATIVITY! And if it gets taken down AGAIN, then I'll just mail the video on CD to all of you. And send one to Warner Music Group. With a big middle finger emblazoned on the front of the envelope.
And then I'll need bail money from all of you. Thankssomuch and enjoy.
