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 of a fucking robot:

A 911-"truther" comments on the BP oil spill - the next "Double Rainbow"?

Conspiracy nutters and creationists seldom disappoint when you're looking for the stupid out there. Sometimes you even get twice the stupid for the same price. As is the case with Nicholas here, also known as truth777alexjones, doctoranswers or theanswersofnwo. Since he left youtube crying about how it was censoring his "truther" videos (his accounts got closed after he broke the TermsOfService on a number of occasions: advertising pyramid scam schemes or youtube cheat-bots that could dramatically increase your views - so the claim - but basically just got your accounts closed down by youtube) he has opened up his own video webpage especially for all those who, like him, had enough of THEM censoring their revolutionary views here on youtube. :)

There he goes on repeating Alex Jones' bullshit while trying to sell advertising space and (once more) pyramid scheme nonsense ways that are guaranteed to "make you rich quick on teh interwebz"! (not).

Enjoy this clip of him commenting on the underwater-camera-view of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico and babbling about a fire under water... :D

Oh - and notice my high end very first attempt at some animation of sorts there in the Beginning? :D Classy!
