I tried mirroring it, but Youtube tells me the video is 'blocked in some countries'. Not that it would be of much interest, as there's hardly anything said about hometaping killing music.
It seems to me this video was blocked due to some automated process that recognized footage of Meatloaf or Kiss.
It's available in The Netherlands. I don't know if it has been down here. v=E9KRtuEttIQ
You do realize that xkcd just mentions well-established clichés, right?
No I don't. You could apply this logic to everything that was ever written, claiming that every single thought has been uttered before (making your statement a cliché as well). Where's the fun in that? And what does count as 'original'?
By the way, I'm a dipshit: xkcd is very funny.
Pah. I raise you ONE Edgar Allan Poe (worth at least FOUR demotivators): "They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
I don't know how to jolt myself into seeing what each moment could become. But I do know one thing: the solution doesn't involve watering down my every little idea and creative impulse for the sake of some day easing my fit into a mold. It doesn't involve tempering my life to better fit someone's expectations. It doesn't involve constantly holding back for fear of shaking things up.
Some xkcd's become clichés for a reason. This is one of them. xkcd 137.
