Way to move backwards Comedy Central

So Comedy Central has stopped us in Sweden, and probably a bunch of other countries to, from watching The Daily Show (and The Colbert Report) online. I guess this is because we have Comedy Central on TV here now. But we don’t get The Daily Show and The Colbert Report on Swedish Comedy Central. We get The Daily Show Global Edition and The Colbert Report Global Edition which is NOT the same thing. Global edition is stuff from the whole week.

Way to take the web back a couple of years Comedy Central!

This does not make me want to pay extra for the low quality Comedy Central channel on TV either… FYI.

So Warner might not be so bad after all … or worse?

I’m not sure what to believe now. I got an reply from WMG after my rant was posted last night and according to them they are not the copyright holder of AC/DC – Back in Black. According to them (and Wikipedia) Sony/BMG is…

I’ve tried to dispute the case now at YouTube. I might be loosing my account if they feel that I was abusive in my dispute. But if that’s the case, so be it. I’ll just move my 150 views movies to someplace else.

Warner Music Group, are you for real?!

So my brother got married last year. Being the good brother that I am, and also the best man, I had to throw him a bachelor party. It was a nice day and to make him remember it I spend my spare time editing a little movie, which I off course showed to everyone at the wedding. After the wedding I also uploaded it to YouTube to be able to share it with our friends and family. This movie is no commercial project. It’s not a big movie. It has 125 views so far. But some how Warner Music Group thinks that it’s a danger to their business. They believe that because I used half a minute of AC/DC’s song Back in Black in the end of the movie they are going to loose money. So they made YouTube cut the sound muting my video. YouTube instead gave me the option to add songs that they have pre-approved to the movie. But what about the dialog? What about the interview parts where my brother explains he’s feelings about getting married? Should I use Franco Micalizzi and his song The Cruel Kidnapper?! Is that the same thing? (No!)

Ok, I understand. This was not an active choice. Nobody saw my movie and though “Hey, fuck this guy! He can’t use our song!” … But come on. This is not a music video. I’m not gonna make any money out of it. If anything I have made money for WMG, cause I bought the song to be able to use it! It just makes me so sad. Why the hell do they work so hard to alienate their customers?!

I’d also like to know what AC/DC think of this … Do they really support this behavior?

I’ve sent an e-mail to almost everyone at WMG Sweden asking these questions. And until I get some answers I’m not gonna buy any more music labeled WMG. That’s for sure. However I do not believe I’m gonna get any replies. Why would they bother? I’m just a customer.

R.I.P Last.fm – I will miss you!

We will forever remember this day, the 24th of March, as the day that music Last.fm died. This almost brings tears to my eyes. Makes more reasons to join Spotify though. But Last.fm was my first real love. And I will miss it … This fucking sucks.

In all other countries, listening to Last.fm Radio will soon require a subscription of €3.00 per month. There will be a 30 track free trial, and we hope this will convince people to subscribe and keep listening to the radio. Everything else on Last.fm (scrobbling, recommendations, charts, biographies, events, videos etc.) will remain free in all countries, like it is now.

And I miss you still …

Good song is good song.

I should know who I am by now
I walk the record stand somehow
Thinkin’ of winter
The name is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you

But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

The walk has all been cleared by now
Your voice is all I hear somehow
Calling out winter
Your voice is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

I could have lost myself
In rough blue waters in your eyes
And I miss you still

Oh I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

Because I like you

I’ve got too many questions in my mind
I’ve got too many answers to find
Can I give up all I’ve imagined?
Am I imagical enough for this to happen?

Because I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
And like can lead to like like and like like can lead to love
As sure as the stars above I’d really like to kiss you/fuck you

Can I be the man you’re looking for?
Can I really throw you outta my door?
I’ll try real hard not to lose her
And I’ll try to be less of a loser

Because I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
And like can lead to like like and like like can lead to love
As sure as the stars above I’d really like to kiss you/fuck you/kiss you/fuck you… fuck you

Tiny Twitter Tools Patch

I use Twitter Tools to import my twitters to my WordPress blog. I also use twitter to update my Facebook status. But I also use Simplaris Blogcast to update my Facebook feed with my blog posts. Social Web Geek. I know. This caused some double posts at Facebook. If I posted a twitt it updated my Facebook status, then my blog got updated, and my blog sent a ping with the Update Service to Simplaris Blogcast and updated my Facebook feed. So every twitter post got posted twice at Facebook. Not the best thing since sliced bread.

I was searching like mad to find where in the WordPress code the Update Service was sent. I found a posts at the WordPress.org forum from someone with the same problem. Kinda. But no solution.

However. At last, by mostly by chance and after a tip from TDH I found out that if I removed all twitter posts from my feeds. The update service didn’t send them to my ping services. This might be common knowledge for everyone. But for you who didn’t know this. This is the patch I made to my Twitter Tools to remove them from my feeds and, ergo, they was removed from my Facebook Simplaris Blogcast Feed updates…

function aktt_pre_get_posts($wp_query) {
	global $bloggy;
	if ($wp_query->is_feed) {
		$wp_query->query_vars['category__not_in'][] = get_option('aktt_blog_post_category');
	}
}
add_action('pre_get_posts', 'aktt_pre_get_posts');

This makes me pirate music!

Fuck. I’m sorry about that. But again … Fuck … Today Andrew Bird, one of my biggest music idols, which I have seen live two times, and bought most of his records, released his newest album Noble Beast. Oh wait. Only in United States, Canada and Australia! Europe (and rest of the world I guess) have to wait until second of February. What the fuck is that all about. Screw that. Hello Pirate Bay. This makes me so mad. Release the fucker world wide. If it would have been available in iTunes now. I would have bought it. And I would probably bought it again when he comes to Sweden next time to play. Now I will only buy it if I go see him live. I don’t know who’s responsible for this backass decision. But it sure is a mess …

If the Bible was the law

Exodus 22:16-17

16 If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife. 17 If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay the bride-price for virgins.

… Or as King James would have put it.

16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.
17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

It’s to bad we don’t talk like this anymore … But I’m kind of ok with us not using the Bible texts as laws.
