Title: Youtube is nice (sometimes)
Post by lionhill on Mar 19th, 2008, 4:44pm
I don't think this has been posted before. I've been wrong about that kind of stuff before, though, so please forgive me if it's a repost.
Saw his cover of Fast Car was posted.

I don't really lurk much around at youtube, and when I do I know what to look for (Goo, anyone?). I usually also hate this kind of thing, but. Wow. Just wow. (http://youtube.com/watch?v=y_V5Qy9qTlY&feature=PlayList&p=7712AB5557EEB65D&index=7) (I chose Flat Top because it's one of my all time favourites, but he's got a whole damned "gallery" (http://youtube.com/view_play_list?p=7712AB5557EEB65D) too of Goo songs) Really really impressive.

.. and in case I fail, I will post some screen-caps from old Goo vids, because then no-one will notice, right?

I wish I was a fan back then. Man.

Damn.  I usually hate covers, especially the 'alone in your bedroom' types, and generally don't watch/listen to them, but I was bored... I thought he was very very good and you can tell he's actually a fan, not just someone playing the songs he hears on the radio.

In other Youtube news, I attempted to upload a video today because Youtube wasn't working for me a couple weeks ago.  I just picked some random thing on my computer and it rejected the video for copyright violation.  I didn't even know Youtube had enacted a content filter, but apparently it works.  :-/

And that is why I wrote sometimes in parenthesis. Youtube is generally not nice to me. For some reason or other I couldn't upload a video either, but that's a while ago now. I've just given up after that.

I didn't know they had a copyright filter either. How do they make that work anyway?

Is the video you were going to upload copyrighted? So that you couldn't upload it at all, I mean.

Yes, what I was trying to upload was copyrighted.  I'm totally fine with them cracking down and putting a stop to uploading and I'm not even complaining about it, I was just surprised it happened.  I'm not exactly sure how they knew the video was infringing on a copyright, but it worked.  Of course, now I'm awfully tempted to test what I can get by the filter.    :D

Oh yeah, I subscribe to him on Youtube.  All of his covers (and originals) are amazing!
