The Artist Formerly Known as Big Brother

May 5, 2008

Well, it finally happened. I got my first “Cease and desist” request regarding my internet content. Yeah, I’m banned in China and apparently thedryspot.net is rated PG-13, but I never thought I would piss off his Royal Badness, Prince.

The YouTube video that I posted from our New Years Eve in Vegas has been taken down. Apparently, The Purple One has been on a rampage to protect the copyrights of all usage of his music and image in the intertubez. He’s taken it to the point where he’s gone after a short video of an 18 month old baby dancing while “Let’s Go Crazy” plays in the background. Scheming little pirate baby!

But the video I shot wasn’t of Prince. It was of Morris Day. And it actually wasn’t even Morris day. It was a Morris Day impersonator! And he wasn’t even singing any lyrics. He was dancing!

This whole thing brings to mind another little clip I found on YouTube.

Help I’m Being Repressed!


Note to NiT

March 5, 2008

When you repost another aggregator’s entire post that quotes a post that you already posted practically in its entirety, you’re not serving to help drive any traffic to the original author’s site, like a good aggregator should.

You’re just stealing content to populate your own advertiser-driven site.

And that’s not cool.


On the Wrong Side of the Firewall…or Would That be “Fahr Wawl?”

I have it on good authority that the ole Dry Spot has been put on the restricted access list for State of Tennessee employees due to “objectionable content.”  Fuggem.

I’ll bet they still love my shit in Mississippi.


I Guess This Makes Me a Metroblog-shual

June 19, 2007

Look who’s the latest Metroblogging Nashville Writer.

That’s right. It’s your old buddy, Big Cee Big El Big Cee.

The publishing empire continues to grow.

I reckon I’m gonna get dooced any day now.


OK, Mr. Smarty Pants…Now What?

January 26, 2007

So here I am over at the new home of The Dry Spot and I just figured I’d poke around and find me a quick little tutorial about what I’ve gotten myself into.

What I found was The CODEX, or as I like to call it, the freakin’ Ancient Library of Alexandria.

I suddenly feel very small and very stupid.

Squeek, squeek.


I’ve Been Hijacked!

January 26, 2007

I tried to log into Blogger this morning, and was forced to switch to new Blogger or else I couldn’t access my old posts.

Well, I didn’t like New Coke either, and I turned out to be right that time.

Fuggem.

Attention – This Blog Is (No Longer) Just A Test

January 24, 2007

This blog here at WordPress is just basically a test drive right now, as a possible potential new home for The Dry Spot.

Please drop by and see me and leave any comments, for now, at my current home (Blogger link deleted) . Thanks!

UPDATE: Never mind the above, this is now officially my home thanks to this bunch of crap.
