I sure hope you enjoyed "Let It Be"...

...while it lasted!! It has now been blocked due to copyright infringements, after something like 29 million views. (I am not exagerrating, either.) (I am misspelling "exagerating" but I am not exaggerating!) And here I had been thinking, Oh how cool! You can see all this film footage and hear this classic Beatles song, totally for free!!

But au contraire. Apparently my blog was the final straw for folks at Sony and EMI yesterday. They were probably cranky because they had no Valentine's Day dates lined up.

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: So, what r u doing 4 V Day?

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY: Nothing.

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: What do u mean nothing?

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY:  No date.

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI:  No date??!! OMG, dude!! LOSER!!

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY:  What r u doing 4 V Day?

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI:  Going to hang out in Marilyn's Room.

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY: Who's she?

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: Not a "she" it's a "what" -- it's a blog. It's a blog about cats & that guitar player, Johnny Depp.

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY: Didn't he used 2 make movies?

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: I don't think so. He was on the Grammy's the other night. [For 5 seconds -- Ed.]

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY: Oh, that guy.

[Guys from Sony and EMI log onto Marilyn's Room, dateless. Discover the "Let It Be" video and realize that everyone else watching the video has dates for Valentine's Day. They go ballistic with envy.]

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: U know what I'm thinking, dude? LET'S BLOCK THIS FUCKER!!!

GUY AT EMI TEXTING GUY AT SONY: But 29 million people have already viewed it. And it's V Day -- people r happy 2day.

GUY AT SONY TEXTING GUY AT EMI: Not anymore they're not. [Hits the Auto Block button on the Sony YouTube mainframe.] Sayonara, lads from Liverpool...
