Copyright Violation & StSanders???

February 4, 2008 at 11:04 pm (digital life) (, , , )

One of my previous posts, I wrote about StSanders videos, the hillllaaaarrriiioooouuussss take on live concert footage by guitar heroes like Santana, Steve Vai, Eric Clapton, Slash, Angus Young and many more …!

StSandersUnfortunately, the videos have been removed by YouTube as a copyright violation!! The account suspended!!

Really??? Copyright violation?? Anyone who has seen at least one of his videos, can vouch that its original to every sec of it. He created the sound and pasted on a live video of a concert footage!! The result was hysterical! For no ordinary reason, it was ranked amongst the best of 2007 online videos by Wired magazine (“The Year in Online Videos” #4)!! The following was the Wired detailed article on it. Hilarious YouTube Parodies ‘Shred’ Guitar Gods

While tons of DVD rips of live concert are streamed every sec out of YouTube servers, how can they go after such wonderful creation? Apparently its not YouTube, its probably the producers of the original video footage. Wonder if they are really serious or doing this to gain cheap publicity!

Long live StSanders, you are the man! Hope to be able to see some of your whackiest creation elsewhere on the web! They can kill the creation, but not creativity!!

Note: found a video on YouTube, an interview with Santeri Ojala (a.k.a. StSanders) from Jimmy Kimmel show. Slash (GnR) was on the show too, and StSanders got to murder Slash video right in front of his eyes, LOL 🙂 Of course, towards the end, Slash couldn’t take the mockery anymore!!

Music (Un)video – StSander’s Youtube videos

February 2, 2008 at 11:20 am (digital life, music, online video, video, youtube) (, , , )

I saw this voted as one of the top 10 youtube videos of last year, ranking by Wired magazine … this is a series of music videos, mashed up (or messed up) super creatively by the youtube user StSanders – you have to watch all of them.

Pardon me if you piss in your pants laughing …

The ultimate fun is to watch Steve Vai: the expression, the action, the emotion, yikes … and the guitar playing. [Oh no, they removed Steve Vai because of copyright violation!! Copyright? Wha??????? StSanders is anything but copying stuff … a super creative mashup of Vai’s video – how can you call it copyright violation, stupid?? The original youtube url used to be:
( will try to get the video from StSanders and will post)]

I was initially sent a link Slash’s (un)shredding by a friend – couldn’t stand it beyond a min, and told my friend, Slash is really lost it on this video! Only to realize a little later, I got fooled!! Another friend of mine seriously thought Eric Clapton was really having a bad day!

The whackiest of all is the fake applause he’s got …
