Stringed popcorn doesn’t last more than two minutes at the Nanny Goats household, let alone make it onto the Christmas tree. I’m busy stringing one end while cousin Billy Goat is gnawing on the other end. He’s such a pig.
I feel like a ten-year old at Christmas. Why? Because I have yet to figure out how to work my video camera and free video editing software well enough to produce something for the holidays worth watching. So I end up with something that looks childishly strung together on one end and chewed up on the other.
And because of this, you would think that nobody would be paying attention to the Christmas video I made of our little group outing to see Christmas lights and posted on the internet last year. Many months went by before I was accosted via email by some video hosting service who shall remain nameless but it rhymes with “BlueBoob”.
They made some outrageous claim that I was using copyrighted material and that I could get in super D duper big trouble. I mean, I know Disney can be very proprietary, but Mickey wasn’t on MY lawn with Santa lights, so why are they after me? But then I remembered I had included a song that may or may not have been “borrowed” to accompany this lame video.
BlueBoob must have realized just who they were dealing with – a silly and harmless little blogger to whom nobody pays any attention — and decided in their caustic letter to me that they would “let me” continue to keep the video up unless something or other, I don’t remember what else they said.
So, for those of you interested in catching this video before I am forced to cease and desist, I give you Nanny Goat’s Virtually Banned Holiday Music Video (less than 3 minutes) (Also? Dramamine tablets will be provided for those prone to motion sickness due to my wonky cameraman skilz):

Thank you, ladies - I appreciate it!
