Non-Douchiness From the MAFIAA? Am I High?
« on: September 01, 2012, 09:56:56 AM »
Ok, I must admit... I've had a bottle or so of wine so far (a small departure from the hard stuff - hey 30% off 6 bottles - how can I refuse?), and I'm not too sure if I'm just hallucinating or what...

Now, I was farting around with WPF, but couldn't manage to get any piece of mind, so I left alone as my mind was blank, and I needed time to get the memories from my mind.

But what did I see? Could I believe? That what I saw this night was real and not just fantasy?

Just what I saw in my own dreams... Were they reflections for my warped mind staring back at me?



This can't go on! I must inform the law! Can this still be real or just some crazy dream?

6. 6. 6.

The number of the MAFIAA~! 

666

The one for you and me!

:P




Hopefully I have entertained a few of you while pointing out a small point of non-douchieness that I really do not understand... ;D

Now, I'll get back to drinking...

Ok... Don't fuck with me... I've had way too much to drink! :P Seriously?

Maybe trying searching on YouTube will work. The referrer may matter.

Maybe the douchiness level has been elevated...

^Ok. It seems to be ok now. But seriously, it was showing a broken link earlier. :)

When I try and watch it I get the message:

The YouTube link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsmcDLDw9iw&feature=player_embedded
- seems to work OK from there on.

This may be  DC Forum issue(?).

the drummer is the top candidate there I think - the rest look (and sound ;p) to me like they'd pass in a seventies gig

[ !!! skip to about 0:40 to avoid intro ]


[edit] in fairness it was only 1982 (had to look that up) - I was more aware of metal in the seventies - too much other interesting stuff (for me) happening as of the late seventies... [/edit]

Blah - had too much to drink and wasn't explicit enough.

The video is posted by EMI. The actual MAFIAA is posting music videos! I think they're trying to monetize with the in-video ads in YouTube.

Anyways, it looks like a step in the right direction for them. I'm sure they'll still try to claim that they've lost several trillion dollars and need to sue everyone to get it back, but this looks like they're kind of coming to grips with the idea of the Internet. :D

Nah Renegade, they've been posting "official" videos for years now. Cross deals with companies like Vimeo, etc.

The **AA just become (Insert adjectives here) when *other* people do it, except when it benefits them in breakout viral sales!  Then it's just fine! (Until the sales die off, then they DMCA it again.)

I'd seen some, but this was the first that I'd seen EMI posting.

It's all about control- as long as they control the release, they're fine.
