Is it youtube or Rudd?

It’s a Friday and I love Metal. So, I entered “Slipknot” into youtube. In one way, the new format of youtube is really cool. It just loads up and plays the next video automatically. But then, when the third or so video came up, a message in a pink bar at the top of the screen read, “This video is not available in your country.” My youtube, on my home computer, has an “au.” before “”. It’s ‘set’ to Australia.

But WTF? Not available in MY country? Are people from other countries getting this message too?

Is it youtube or is this Rudd?

Either way, so much for the World Wide Web.

Pardon my French, but this is so totally fucked on so many levels.

Japanese Whaling

Japanese whalers have released a video on YouTube describing Australians as ‘racist’, and needless to say, they found the worst possible footage, took it all completely out of context, and added subtitles.

The movie is below. I haven’t watched it all, but I’m working on the assumption that it’s quite disturbing, so watch it at your own discretion.
