shes everything. and mtv knows it and tidal knows it and even jay-z is starting to figure it out.
but here’s my problem with viacom. if you go to the MTV.com page of the VMA video clips
and you click the Beyonce video of her performance from Sunday night
a night that was tape delayed to the West for no good reason at all,
they provide you with an embed code so you can share the video on your busblog.
but when you use the code Viacom
for no good reason at all
blocks the video from being able to be played on your busblog.
several things happen when you do things like this, Viacom
the first is we continue in thinking that you dont know how to Internet.
the Internet is a Web. it’s many sites all sharing in information and linking to each other so as to spread the message.
the message on Sunday was MTV had many of the top female solo acts on one stage
(except for Adele, Kesha, Taylor Swift, Regina Spektor, PJ Harvey, and Banks)
the best way for that message to get spread is via social media, which blogging is still part of.
so when you provide a code to embed the video but then block it you seem bipolar and ridiculous.
sorta like when you stop showing videos on your music video network
but then go right ahead and continue to have music video awards each fall like nothing has changed.
the second thing we assume is you hate us. you dont want us to see Beyonce’s amazing performance.
we think that because, like was mentioned earlier, you tape delayed a Sunday “live” show to the West
and you make it hard for us to see today’s most fascinating and talented performers do her thing.
it give us the idea, Viacom, that you dont care about art or music, all you care about is beans.
the type you want to count. but you forget that the more beans you put out there
the more will be seen, and the more you can count.
but the worst thing you have done is you have played yourself.
and you have given an excuse to pirates to steal the signal that you have failed at protecting.
“stealing” a video transmission is easier today than ever before.
you are building a wall across the border but it is porous and ridiculous.
which makes you ridiculous.
and poor us, you are poor er.
we will see the video.
the mountain will move.
you will die.
and fail to reach paradise.
because what Saint will let you in to Heaven
after it is discovered that for a living you tried to block Queen Bey from her fans?
i pity you.
i pray for you.
you need to repent.
