Shaking Hands with Death - by Terry Pratchett

I posted this a while ago already, but the video was taken down from youtube. But since then it has been put up on the homepage of Sir Terrance - so here it is once again, "from the source" so to speak:

cracked.com Photoplasty Contest "Real life plot twists that explain everything" - my entries

You may have noticed that I've begun to make some pictures from time to time - that's because I started to have fun with the photoplasty contests over at cracked.com - they give a subject, actually several subjects each week and then the forum members try to come up with funny picture manipulations.

This week, amongst others, it was supposed to be "Real life plot twists that explain everything", and these are my three entries. The first one fitting since Easter is coming close:

Team TGWTG reviews: Moulin Rouge

Damn - this has got to be the greatest movie review I've seen yet, I believe it might even beat redlettermedia's Mr. Plinkett.

A review of a musical - done as a musical. :D

An interview with Mike J. Nelson from Rifftrax/MST3K

Cool - the Riffmeister! :D

I'm a German myself, and I came across mst3k fpr the first time when the movie came out dubbed quite nicely by a German comedy team around Oliver Kalkofe.

Achtung: Kraftwerk Roboter VERBOTEN! :D

A little while ago I uploaded a video spoof of Kraftwerk's "The Robots" to youtube, a parody of the original 1978 video using the original track.

Some time ago EMI, Kraftwerk's record company, blocked the video in Germany for using their copyrighted material - as is their right, since after all the video *does* use the original tune.

Interesting though: My video was the only one using that tune and that got blocked by EMI I could find on youtube - all the others are still running, some of them are online for years...

Now that looks a little more interesting. It has something rather ... exclusive. :)

Almost as if EMI actually doesn't care too much whether someone uses KW material youtube, but someone called them and somehow got them to make an exception for my video...

While that, at first glance, might sound a little far fetched - there *is* a person with the connections to do such a thing and who is known for similar shenanigans...

And I do know a person who knows that person...

In Germany we have a saying: "Ein Schelm, wer Böses dabei denkt." ("He who assumes ill will behind this is a fool", more or less - but it actually kinda means the opposite - like saying "you know, this DOES seem a little weird for a pure coincidence!")

Anyways - since I like the video a LOT and would like it to be seen in Germany as well I will simply make a new version of it that, instead of the original "The Robots", will use an old parody of the tune I made ages ago and which I will re-record (since the old version sounds like crap) - problem solved.

In the meantime please enjoy this new video from redlettermedia.com of a fucking robot:
