“Spot Me Up” – The Rolling Stones & Boston Dynamics Parody #SHORT

When I saw the Rolling Stones and Boston Dynamics “Start Me Up” music video, I had to do a Windows parody shorts video. Microsoft paid the Rolling Stones $3M US to license the song and perform at the Windows 95 product launch. Enjoy!

Age of Empire IV Trailer

Age of Empire IV came out last week. The original Age of Empires in 1997 was THE GAME to play when I worked at Accolade (later bought out by Infogrames and renamed Atari). I sucked at multiplayer when playing with the other testers. I was always the first one to get wiped out. You have 15 minutes to set up your production and generate combat units before the fighting began. I’ve never mastered that part of the multiplayer game. I liked playing long single player games on large maps. I’m planning to get AOE4 but not at $60 US. Valve Steam might have it on sale for Black Friday.

Sara Dietschy Interviews Mark Zuckerberg

Sara Dietschy, rhymes with peachy, interviewed Mark Zuckerberg about the Meta memes and the Metaverse. This interview was a bit surprising. Mark still comes off as a robot.

George Floyd’s Death Blurred Out

YouTube sent me a late night email on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, informing me that a video on my channel was no longer compliant with the Community Guidelines and age restricted (a viewer must be 18 years or older and logged in to view the video).

That was odd.

I maintain a family- and advertiser-friendly, and, under the Federal Trade Commission’s COPPA, not “made for kids” channel. All my videos are suitable for a general audience (13 years or older).

Which video got age restricted?

My montage video that alternated clips from George Floyd’s death and the first SpaceX crewed flight while Gil Scott-Heron narrated his 1970 poem, “Whitey On The Moon,” about poverty on the earth and white men on the moon.
