Darkness Falls on Father’s Day

By Artistry

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads in GTOG Nation.  I hope you experience even a fraction of the joy I felt spending the morning with Little Artistry.  But I cannot ignore the black cloud that now threatens to spoil our fun, fun, or even thinking about fun.  Brace yourselves.  Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video has been removed from Youtube.  In an ongoing copyright dispute between Black and the production company behind “Friday,” we, the fans, are the losers wondering what seat we can take.

No Room For the People

This is like the NFL and the players’ association quarreling over how to divide billions of dollars in revenue and alienating everybody else.*  Once again, stubbornness and greed trump common sense.  “Friday” has 160 million views over four months, and these people can’t figure out how to make this work for everybody?  Tragic.  Alas, we’ll always have the Rebecca Black podcast.

* Speaking of which, good post here comparing in-over-his-head Roger Goodell to the oft-maligned Gary Bettman.
