Comedy or Pornography?

If you go to Youtube to watch my “Coppin’ a Feel” music video, you’ll find it “disabled for violation of the YouTube Community Guidelines.” It looks like this now:

:/ is right.

I appealed, but that just meant I got to write two sentences, click a button and have it denied within minutes. I’m quite unhappy. According to their notice, “YouTube is not the place for nudity, pornography or other sexually provacative content.” It’s a comedy video. Yes, it’s about something sexy, but that doesn’t make it pornography. There’s zero nudity and the imagery is no worse than the average rap video.  I could spend a lifetime watching racier stuff on YouTube, but I won’t.

Instead, I’m asking people to spread their displeasure on twitter using the hashtags, #ShameOnYouTube, #FreedomOfReach and #LifeLibertyAndThePursuitOfGropiness. Let YouTube know that they got it wrong.

If you haven’t seen it, and therefore aren’t sure if you’re outraged yet, the video is below. Judge for yourself. Is this comedy or pornography?

Tay Zonday’s Lockout and Me

This makes me so happy. Some Youtube luminaries have weighed in on my music video for “Coppin’ a Feel.” This may be the nicest thing anyone’s ever made about my music. It features Tay Zonday, Mystery Guitar Man, Ethan Newberry and Exotic Jess, who doesn’t have many nice things to say, but even that makes me happy. Thanks to BAMMO for making this happen!

To give this blog post a little beef, I’ll respond to my “critics.”

To Tay Zonday:
Thank you, I’m honored. +30035 (boobs).

To Exotic Jess:
I didn’t have a girlfriend when I wrote the song, but I did by the time I made the video (and still do) which made the whole thing a bit more nerve-wracking than boneriffic. Also, while girls might not notice when they’re checking their rack… I do.

To Mystery Guitar Man:
I did make a Craigslist post, but didn’t cast anyone from it. They all seemed like the kind of girl that might shiv the whole crew and steal the camera.

To Ethan Newberry:
You get me bro. I will send you that loop.

GoTopless Day 2010 “Coverage”

GoTopless Day is an annual event to protest the laws that deny women the right to go bare-chested in public. To protest, the women go topless… sweet. I was invited to the Venice Beach, CA demonstration to perform my song, “Coppin’ a Feel.” Videos and pictures abound below.

This is my favorite shot. I call it, "Topless Girls vs. Bible Bashing Christian Zealots

The argument FOR toplessness is on the right and the argument AGAINST on the left.

Kat Kaplan is a rapper and protester and, yes, she totally was using her own portrait for pasties.

Some said the tape showed lack of commitment. I say it still showed plenty of breastmeat.

This girl is named Veronique. She has very nice eyes and doesn't care who sees them.

Police thought it would be best if this guy stopped screaming his Vietnam-related boob-hatred.

This is another favorite of mine. I call this one BIG rack vs. BIGotry. This guy never masturbates.

I call this one "Signage + Boobage." My spellchecker calls bullshit both words. Digging the leopard print.

Lara Terstenjak (in the white hat) coordinated the perv-formers including yours truly.

Let's be perfectly clear as to why this guy was in attendance. He loves boobs.

Distracted by that logo? Stay focused! It's the logo of the Raelian Movement. Look it up... later.

You know what everyone is wearing with their sun hats this season? Tits. That's what.

...and how is everyone accessorizing their titties this season? With devil horns. That's how.

Nadine Gary is the organizer of GoTopless Day 2010. She doesn't mess around.

What is this? This is something else I saw on Venice Beach. A two-headed turtle.

Because I knew you wouldn't fucking believe me, another shot of the two-headed turtle.

This young lady works at the same Venice Beach Freakshow where the two-headed turtle works.

This girl tried to put bunny ears on me, but it didn't work, because I've got Photoshop.

'The empresses have no clothes,' yelled out bystanders, but no one listened.

I’m a Negligent Videographer when I’m in the Show

Here’s a few snippets of video from when I happened to have my camera rolling at the CD Release show. Now that I get to see how awesome these guys were, I wish I’d filmed the whole show. If you missed the show, have some fun with this, but only a snippet.
