This week’s video is not available thanks to WMG (Warner Music Group) removing the audio from it [Read the details here in this CNET article]. This tends to happen with some record companies, as there have been a couple of videos I’ve done that have had copyright warnings. Oddly enough, the videos I’ve previously used songs from a couple of WMG artists [Red Hot Chili Peppers, Van Halen] have so far been left untouched. Universal Music has been smart enough to leave the audio alone in my videos, adding a link in the details of the YouTube video page to purchase the song. Evidently, Warner Music Group isn’t that smart. I’m not surprised, given who runs WMG. So until Mr. Edgar Bronfman Jr. pulls his collective head from his greedy ass, I will not be uploading any YouTube videos that contain any music from Warner Music Group.

The Vimeo video above has not been affected and unless things change at Vimeo, I will continue to use that service for all of my weekly videos. If for some reason you cannot access Vimeo, let me know and I will provide another option for downloading and viewing this week’s episode of Snowy Sunday.
Thanks for your patience.
