There’s this guy on youtube, Bart Baker, who does song parodies and apparently a recent video he did got taken down because the publicist who had rights to the song claimed copyright infringement. He is in legal trouble and he feels it’s unfair but I have to say they had every right to take it down and he shouldn’t be complaining about it. He seems like a cool guy so I’m not trying to “hate” on him. However, it’s on him. I do my podcast show and I know for a fact that you CANNOT use someone else’s music unless you directly ask permission from the band or the band’s managers.
Just giving crediting the artist won’t save you from a lawsuit. People assume as long as you put “I don’t own the right to this song. It belongs to…so and so” that it’ll be fine. Wrong! There’s a reason I jumped through hoops to get permission from multiple bands to use their songs in my show. Let this be a lesson to everyone! I’m trying to save you guys from going through legal issues. Especially if you’re getting paid to make your blogs or videos but you use someone else’s work and YOU’RE making money off someone else’s work…that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Many people think “oh well everyone else is doing it so I don’t think it’ll matter if I take this picture from google” and again….wrong! They may not have been caught but it’s a risky game to play so think before you do.
Unfortunately, I’ve been really busy lately working nonstop at my job and writing scripts for my show. I haven’t had much time for blogging. I still try my best to give you guys my best work but keep in mind I’m working way more now than I used to so that’s why I don’t blog as much. Luckily, you can still catch me on twitter or my podcast show so I’m never too far away. My website still means everything to me and I’m always putting my heart and soul into each one.
Nothing has changed except the fact that I don’t post everyday anymore. I hope you guys can understand and if you still wanna keep in touch tweet me @thecarlosshow or email firstname.lastname@example.org

For that one moment I was frozen in time
I can still remember your face
The moment when our hands touched
It was all so perfect and everything was fine
A few seconds can feel like years when the stars align
I hope we meet again so I can tell you how much you meant to me
The people who support me are what keep me going. It’s an awesome feeling when people tell me I’ve inspired them through a blog or a show. Fuck the haters. When they’ve done what I have and what we have they would understand why we do what we do but they don’t understand because they don’t try and reach for anything important. They drag people down because they’re mad at themselves. Slaves to society who are blind to everything. We are above that so let’s ignore those people and have a fucking great time!
I am tired of the sheep who feel the need to repeat their bullshit expecting to break us down. Unfortunately for them, I’m a lot tougher to break and I am going to speak up on behalf of the people who ever wanted to live out a dream only to have it crushed and gave up. These mindless drones do what they’re told and they live day by day living the same day over and over again not knowing WHY they’re even doing it! Think about it, how many “religious” people celebrate a day but never know why. They just do it because they were taught it at a young age. I’m not knocking religion, I just feel like if you’re only doing something because people tell you to do it than what’s the point?
At work I can understand, we all have to make money to survive in this day and age. Obviously, you need to do what the boss tells you or you risk getting fired and most of us can’t afford to do it. But that is different because when you’re at work YOU KNOW why you’re doing it! For your kids, family, for yourself to eat and have a place to live. That is not what I mean. I am talking about the bigger picture of a society in general.
It’s 2013 shouldn’t we be moving forward and not backward!?
So many Americans seem to have a lot of stereotypes for Canada. It’s hard to tell if they’re making fun of us or actually being serious so I wanted to address the ones I’ve heard from them and I’ll let YOU AMERICANS know which ones are true.
1. Canadians love maple syrup. True! We eat it, drink it, have sex with it and when we’re done we piss it in the ocean which is also maple syrup. We don’t have water here in Canada. It’s all maple syrup. Good luck trying to swim!
2. Canadians love hockey. True! We walk around all day wearing hockey gear so unless you want an angry hockey team after you than you’d best bring us some maple syrup!
3. Canadians live in igloos. Very true! Canadians can’t survive in any weather warmer than -40C and instead of having cats and dogs we have pet penguins who are just the cutest and very obedient. They can fetch, swim, fly, pilot an airplane, and play poker with your buddies.
I hope that clears things up for my fellow Americans. I love America and if you need the truth about Canada I’m your man!
So tomorrow is black friday and it scares the hell out of me. Every year on this day people murder just to get to the front of the line to get the sale on sweaters. I don’t get it and I refuse to go anywhere on that day. I mean, come on, breaking windows? Shooting people? Stabbing people? All to save a few dollars? Is that what we’ve become? I am glad that there are stil some normal people in the world who can wait a few minutes to be ahead in line rather than killing people to save a few minute. That’s just absolute nonsense and I don’t get it.
If you’re going out shopping tomorrow just be careful. I definitely wouldn’t bring your kids because they will be pushed around and thrown because apparently people don’t care how little the child, they seem to do whatever they want.
