Apologies to any non-U.S. readers who aren't able to access the video in the previous post. Not my fault; I'm only King of the World in my head, which is of course the best place to be King of the World, since everything works out in my favor that way and all is always for the best. There are no inconvenient insoluble problems for the KotW as long as he's imaginary.
I do have to say I don't like the "national ghettoizing" of web content that seems to have quietly gained its ominous foothold. But the pipers must be paid I guess.

Featured Comment by erlik: "Yep, I'm a honorary American, too, it seems. :) But that idiocy with blocking IP ranges is galling. And stinking to high heaven. Various series, okay, I can understand that. But music videos—So-and-So is the owner of the content and they blocked it in your country. It's promotional material, for Pete's sake. Do they understand the meaning of 'world wide web' and the concept of promotion? Even worse if it's the really real promotional material. I've had a film trailer blocked because of my location. A. Film. Trailer. Words failed me."
