Where’s The Fair Use? #WTFU

… … …Just show the video.

So, as you may or may not know, because I don’t know how long some of the people who read my blog nowadays have been doing so for a long time, I used to be an internet reviewer on YouTube. I wasn’t very good, and I’ll be the first to admit that, but having been one for a short time, and also having made videos on YouTube in general, I know what everyone in this video is going through. In fact, part of the reason I don’t make videos on YouTube anymore (aside from lacking any kind of movie maker outside of YouTube’s own pathetic one) is because I’ve been taken to the point where I’m scared to death to post anything on there anymore, partly because I don’t want my channel and all the videos I’ve favourited taken away to where I have to start over completely, and partly because I never want to have to sit through that stupid fucking video from the Happy Tree Friends ever again, which is so bad that it actually ended up on an episode of Animated Atrocities!

In fact, because I’m SO scared of that happening, most times, when I see a copyright claim on one of my videos, I just delete it. I don’t even WANT to go through the stupid processes that YouTube makes me go through anymore. It’s why you’ll see a lot of older articles on my blog that used to have videos present that don’t anymore…Well, that and the videos once being on Blip, which no longer exists.

Still, I think we should probably remember that it’s not entirely Hollywood or various companies and corporations that are at fault here. One of the biggest contributors to this rising issue is the simple fact that YouTube isn’t monitored by a human being. And if you want proof of that, here’s one of the more hilarious stories I’ve heard recently regarding copyright claims.

If we’re to believe this story, and trust me, I do, that means we can never be 100% sure who is making these claims from one to the next: An actual human being from an actual company, or YouTube’s automated processes. I’m almost certain that it’s the latter in this case, by the way, because as bad as things have been over at the WWE, I sincerely doubt that they’re so desperate as to claim ownership and monetization from something like this. But even if it’s the latter, there still may be no way to dispute it. How do you dispute something with a robot who believes there’s nothing wrong with what it’s doing?

Still, there is one good thing about this: With things growing to this point, where now everyone is talking, sharing stories, and just overall laying out how utterly broken the system is, MAYBE we’ll see some improvement. Until then, lemme know what you all think of this, if you have any similar stories, and let’s just make it clear that this has gone on long enough. Ja né, and where’s the fair use?

Deadpool: Best movie of the year?

Goddammit, I loved Deadpool. XD

Just Another Little Film Blog

Many are calling the new Marvel blockbuster the best movie of the year so far and I can certainly see why.

Having grown up with an older brother I had heard all about Deadpool since I was a little girl, although there was not yet a movie in 2005, there were various superhero video games and comics. So, having heard about this red suited “Merc with a Mouth” I can wholeheartedly say that there could have been no better choice than Ryan Reynolds to play the character, now bare in mind, I may be slightly bias as Reynolds is by far one of my favourite actors, but in my eyes, he played the part perfectly.

Reynolds really did bring the character to life on the big screen. The movie had the right amount of action, humour, sarcasm and even a bit of a love story as well as a few…

Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #2 Review #PoisonIvyLeague

…So yeah, this is kinda late. lol My fault, I hadn’t been uptown for a bit, so I wasn’t able to grab my copy. Regardless, I have it now, so let’s go over my thoughts regarding Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #2.

So, as anyone who read last issue knows, we’ve got a murder mystery. And, as is typically a good move in murder mysteries, a lot of this issue sets up the most likely candidate for who the murderer is…and then ends with them being the newest victim. So yeah, not gonna lie, I’m not 100% sure I know who the killer is, which is good, because I don’t wanna be a mere two issues and know how it’s gonna end. With that said, I REALLY hope the character of Darshan is innocent as he seems to be, because I find myself really sympathizing with his situation. I’m also interested to see where they go with what Ivy’s been working on, although I hope for her sake that it doesn’t end up going where I think it is. And, of course, as always, Ivy is a delight to read. There’s just something about how unapologetically confident she is in herself and what she believes in…Well, minus one point.

As it pertains to the cons of this issue, I REALLY didn’t need to see her killing the dog abuser. He needed some kind of comeuppance, no doubt, but Ivy killing him seemed kinda forced, as if to hammer it home that she’s not a superhero. Just came off as completely unnecessary. And while it is nice to see her in a costume that kinda harkens back to her old days, I gotta admit, I’m gonna miss her New 52 costume. And no, it’s not because it covered her up more. It’s just, for situations where she’s shown in a more positive light and oftentimes working with the heroes, it looked like a superhero costume. Again, kinda feels like they’re trying to make it clear she’s NOT a superhero. And granted, she’s more of a neutral, all things considered, and it could just be me wanting to see her eventually transition into being a superhero, but it’s just a little distracting to me.

Speaking of distracting, that brings me to an issue some people are having with this book: The artwork, specifically whether or not Clay Mann is showing Ivy off a bit too much and if Ivy is designed far too much to favour the male gaze. And I’m just gonna say this right now, to make my opinion as clear as I can: I’ve seen WAY worse. I mean, do you people even REMEMBER how the New 52 started? If you don’t, allow me to jog your memory. It had…








…Please, dear God, don’t let Rebirth be a repeat of some of the crap we’ve gotten in the New 52. Just a little less female objectification and a lot less dark and dire stories…Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be giving my thoughts on that, aren’t I? Yeah, should probably do that pretty soon.

But yeah, overall, still enjoying this book, and can’t wait to see where it goes from here. Leave your own thoughts below, and be sure to check back in next month when I review issue 3…Hopefully, a little more on time than this one. lol Ja né!
