Two days from now, the first Phineas and Ferb original movie will be aired in Asia thru Disney Channel Asia. And as a mere coincidence, a have this LSS that I can’t get out of my head for days now, which gets me humming with unintelligible lyrics. The song that I’m talking about is “You Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart” performed by the fictional band from Phineas and Ferb universe, Love Händel, in which i. It’s weird since the tune just popped out of nowhere, considering that I haven’t heard the song for a few weeks. The song appeared in a P&F episode, “Dude, We’re Getting the Band Back Together.”
The song talks about how a certain girl(?) made him fall in love with her even though he tries not to get too close to her. It’s how someone can unsuspectingly fall in love with a person in an unsuspecting manner. The song is a power ballad, a genre popular in the mid-70’s to around early 90’s. “You Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart” is a melodic, slow-tempo song that conveys a powerful melancholic feeling, backed up with a distinctive soft, clean guitar tone on the verses and emotional overdriven guitar solos, characterized by long sustained notes and bends in the upper part of the fretboard. If you look at the lyrics, there’s a bit of humor in it, like most P&F songs. But if you look more closely, the song’s lyrics did not depend solely on the episode’s plot, which can make the song stand on its own and can be marketed even without the P&F brand. The melody is very catchy and can easily burn deep within your memory, as proven by my LSS thingy.
And the video below is from the actual episode. Enjoy!
You Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart
by Love Händel
I should’ve known from how I felt when we were together
And even more when we were apart
You tiptoed in and you got under my skin
You snuck your way right into my heart
I put up barriers to shield my emotions
A wall that you could never break apart
But like a ninja of love rappelling down from above
You snuck your way right into my heart
(C’mon everybody, let me hear ya!)
Nah Na Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Nah
You snuck your way right into my heart!
Nah Na Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Nah
This is today’s featured song by the band Opensked. Actually, it hasn’t been recorded by the band yet, so the credit is still mine, words, music and arranged by me. This song is a parody of the many “hardcore” songs today. It is simply a hardcore song about a hardcore song. It tries to define on how people perceive hardcore metal and the likes, more likely stereotyping. Although I said hardcore, the song format is arranged in such a manner that it will resemble a pop song. Enjoy.
Fair Use legal experts from the Stanford’s Center for Internet Society (CIS) answers in a video 19 questions from YouTube users regarding fair use and how it applies to their videos on the site. On the video are Anthony Falzone, Executive Director of the Fair Use project, and Julie Ahrens, Associate Director of the Fair Use project giving guidelines on how to distinguish some common copyright and fair use scenarios that can be beneficial to avoid copyright takedowns. The video:
The questions that are answered in the video are:
I am at an event, restaurant, or other public place and a band or the radio is playing in the background but I do not intentionally record the band or radio. I am filming something else. The music is out of my control. Is this fair use?
A movie was filmed in my city a few years ago. I want to film some of the filming location to show people where each scene was filmed. I want to place small clips of the movie side-by-side with my video. Is this fair use?
If I keep my video clip under a certain number of seconds am I in the clear?
Does a parody video fall under fair use when the visuals are almost entirely from a non-original source (cartoon, gameplay), but it is completely rewritten and re-voiced in a humorous manner?
If I dub over an episode of a cartoon with my own voices and change the dialogue for parody’s sake, am I legally in the clear?
Can one claim fair use preemptively when posting content to avoid takedowns? Also, what non-court options are there for resolving a copyright/fair use dispute?
If I am uploading YouTube videos of captured video and commentary of video games as I play them am I violating copyright?
If I do a parody of a song, can I use the same music, exactly like the original (as long as I or a music composer recreate it from scratch) or does it have to actually sound a bit different (like Conan’s version of “It’s Friday” did)?
If I’m doing a news program where I report on a story am I allowed to use video footage or photos pertaining to that story?
Can you make money off a movie you produced that was inspired by another book or film as long as the story is unique? Like a fan film that exists in the same universe but with original characters and storyline? Is this fair use?
Can I perform a copyrighted song in a YouTube video? Can I teach how to play it? Can I show guitar tablature or music notation?
What kind of categories fall under fair use (review, education)? What if the clip you’re using doesn’t fit into one of them, can it still be fair use?
If I want to make software video tutorials and I record my screen with software being shown throughout the video, does that qualify as fair use?
If I use 2-3 seconds of a video for a mashup but give credit to that video owner, is it fair use?
Can I review a movie based on one element in that movie, and include clips from that movie in my review without violating copyright? Keep in mind, I am essentially promoting that movie and I am not making any money from the review.
Are there any cases in which posting the uncut entirety of another’s content could be considered fair use? For instance, if commentary is located in the description or annotation fields, and not on the video itself?
Is there a way to give credit to the original owners of the content in a mash up, similar to how you make a Works Cited page for an academic paper?
Can a person use actual clips from a movie, i.e. Star Wars, if he green screens himself into them to change them for comedic purposes under YouTube’s understanding of Fair Use?
I’ve heard and seen content owners complaining about content that they don’t own. Is there a way to take legal action or at least right those wrongs?
Here is a song that is originally composed by our drummer, tracer. This song is called "I Live For You," a Christian song (the first Christian song if ever it will be included in our lineup) that describes how a hopeless man can be changed and renewed and instill a purpose within him to live for God. This version is arranged and performed by bb with a terrible voice (I'm waiting for tracer for him to record the vocals himself).
This video is also on YouTube in case you can't play it.
Here is the original version of the song as played by tracer himself. (Take note, the video below may not show since the video's privacy settings has been changed by the owner. You may add him as a friend on Facebook if the video didn't load and you want to view it badly. P.S. he's single.)
It’s retro time! Here’s a classic commercial from the early ’90s. It’s reminiscent of the good old days where online blogs don’t exist and you don’t post your current status for everyone to see. It was the time where diaries are private and usually are the key in solving the conflict on old Filipino teledramas.
Here’s Tender Juicy’s classic commercial featuring Chantal Umali on a TVC that could virtually take you back in time and reminisce about the days where Bleach can only refer to a chemical whitener, and ninjas don’t wear bright orange jackets.
