Boomshakala and all is well with the world

Since my last posting I have managed to calm down a bit. I managed to get a bit hot under the collar about not being able to go on youtube. Well I suppose YT were only doing there job, and copyright is an issue, but come on, lets play the game fairly. When a DJ mashes or remixes two or more songs, and comes up with a masterpiece, credit should be given when due. The internet was original founded on the bases of free speech and interpretation. Even though every part of the web is being commercialised for profitable gain, free speech and interpretation is still a right. Mashups are a form of creativity and expression, and deserve the artistic license as any other art form.
In august of 2010, I wrote a piece on E.V.P. by Colatron. Colatron is the alter ego of my good mate Andy Smart, a truly talented, gifted and succesful artist. If the powers that be had jumped on him, we would never have heard this wonderous track. What would have happened if they had done the same to Queen when they released Bohemian Rhapsody. Creativity should be nutured. Cradled like a babe in arms, not become a victim of bureaucracy and taken down at every turn.
Im tired now so peace out

Infinite love is the only truth, everything else is illusion

We are all one
