I just watched yesterdays episode of THE DAILY SHOW, and I have to ask…

Is Kirsten Gillibrand the most adorable senator, or is she the most adorable senator EVER?  You be the judge.

(I like my ladies to be all smart like!)

Downfall

leave a comment »

If you know me, then you know I love the DOWNFALL meme.

Last night, I was reading Newsweek, (The issue from a week or two ago, with Hilary Clinton on the cover, calling her Obama’s “Bad Cop”), a magazine I normally enjoy.  But, a passage about the DOWNFALL meme in the magazine kinda pissed me off.  No, not kinda, it really got me mad!

They called the meme played out, which, okay, sure, it’s been around a while now and I can understand that some people may be sick of it (I’m not), but hey, that’s their opinion, and I can respect that.  What I could not respect was the way they said it was a good thing that Constantin Films, the production company behind the film, had ordered the DOWNFALL clips off of YouTube.

Why am I angry?  Because this is a case of yet another media company claiming “copyright” in an inappropriate manner, and ignoring the fair use laws that protect this form of parody and remixing.  And, I would think that Newsweek, normally an intelligent publication, would be smart enough to understand the bigger picture.

I’m not the most articulate person when it comes to explaining all of this (without writing a five page essay), so go do some research and educate yourself on the topics of remix culture and copyright vs fair use.  Trust me, these are important subjects in todays digital culture.

And on a somewhat related note…

Brandon Hardesty has been re-enacting scenes from films and posting them to YouTube for a while now.  They are interesting, one man experiments in acting.  Recently, he posted his own version of the (in)famous DOWNFALL scene.  Pretty good, for a non German speaker!

Interesting fact: “more air marshals have been arrested since 9/11 (for crimes like smuggling explosives, domestic violence, drunk driving and human trafficking) than the number of people arrested by the marshals.” – From the office of Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr (R-Tn)
