We interrupt the regularly-scheduled episode of Snowy Sunday to bring you a special edition – announcing the winners of the 100 post contest…. in Snowy Sunday video format.

More YouTube Downsizing

As I mentioned in last week’s Snowy Sunday post, I will not be using YouTube as a location for any videos that contain Warner Music Group (WMG) artists. This week’s episode uses a clip of Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Give It Away”, which prevents it from being uploaded to YouTube intact. I tried to find another song that would fit this week’s topic, but this one fit so well that I decided to stick with it. It’s a short clip used at the beginning and end of the episode.


… I didn’t want to leave any YouTube users out of the loop on finding out if they won or not. So, in an effort to skirt around the greedy fuckers at Warner, I have “improvised” the clips used at the beginning and the end of the YouTube version for this week’s video. Sometimes, you have to do what you got to do. This will most likely NOT be a regular feature [sorry, I don’t believe in inflicting torture on any human beings]. The Vimeo version contains the beginning and ending clips of the actual song.

I am writing a separate blog post that will go into more detail about this WMG/YouTube issue, which I will post sometime this week. I didn’t want to take away too much from the excitement of this week’s Snowy Sunday with an extended rant.


I will be contacting you via email this week, asking you for your mailing address, so I can send you your prize.
