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?

The Music of Loveline

As you might know, I’ve been working for Loveline for about a year as a video producer. The show streams live on the internet every Sunday-Thursday at 10pm (PST). It’s a cool job because not only do they pay me, but sometimes I get to do funny and/or musical videos based on Loveline content. I would like to share some of my favorite musical bits from Loveline:





Mp3s are available on the Loveline homepage here and here.

Rhune in The News

An artist's depiction of an "article-writer" from old-timey times.

Remember when people used to write articles instead of sitting around talking into their webcams all day? Me neither! But here are two such articles on a subject that I am very interested in: ME! Wahaha. The first comes from comedian and humor editor of Crave Online, Sax Carr, and is on the topic of YouTube comedy. The second is from Rock Band Aide about my song “iPhone” appearing as downloadable content for the Rock Band video game franchise.

If that doesn’t get your rockets firing, I don’t know what will. Come and see me opening for Kevin Pollak this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Improv in West Palm Beach, Florida!
