Sunday Song Series Ended 7 Days Ago

For any of you, who may have liked our weekly trekking and tracking thru the vast world of Sunday titled songs, yet, missed my two previous announcements…

The above headline covers the “What” aspect. Re the “Why”…

YouTube, itself, made it necessary for me to free myself and flee. To amplify that a bit…

Their CEO, Susan Diane Wojcicki, has been rolling out the red carpet to hardcore, right wing radicals, perhaps even domestic terrorists, who, either willfully or unwittingly, are participating in Donald J. Trump’s attempt to overthrow fair, free elections, Democracy, America, etc. While some may screech about these ideologues “merely” exercising their freedom of speech and press rights, I’d counter that by pointing out such 1st Amendment protections were never intended for individuals whose words and deeds fail to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution.

Additionally, Wojcicki has been welcoming, with open arms, advertisers whose long-winded, revolting content, in this man’s opinion, attempts to legitimize / normalize just about everything, which sullies society, today. Yep, all these sponsors need do is show YouTube the money and they can then say and do whatever they effing please.

Granted, such issues did not adversely, overtly affect the music vids, as viewed on this WordPress site, but, I felt my not standing up for my principles was akin to tacit approval of YouTube’s odious modus operandi.

Although I am tempted to expurgate and/or completely purge all past posts featuring YouTube content, seeing how I’ve been blogging, here, for nearly five years, such a project could take some time. And life is too short to do that, especially for this sixty something guy. So, for now, content posted prior to the onset of my January 1, 2021 YouTube boycott will remain.

And that will also benefit anyone who might want to revisit the approximately 120 Sunday titled songs previously featured here. My homepage’s Category Menu and “Music” listing will get you there.

Journey’s End (Sunday Song Series)

Our trekking and tracking thru the vast realm of Sunday titled songs now finds us at Week #120.

On this final, 2020 Sunday, Ms. Carole King will be performing Pleasant Valley Sunday in the recording studio. And seeing how she also performed this same song, on stage, way back on Week #1 (September 16, 2018), we now find our Sunday Song Series right back where we started.

The temporal bookending of these two videos also round trips our journey home; ends everything on a high note, too!

So, why the travel ban / culmination of this Series?

Because YouTube CEO, Ms. Susan Diane Wojcicki, EITHER of her own volition OR due to her heeding her underlings’ astoundingly bad counsel, has opted to roll out her platform’s red carpet to propaganda minister YouTubers, who are hellbent on flagrantly aiding and abetting Donald J. Trump’s Fascist overthrow of America AND his morphing of 74 million Americans into a psychotic and chaotic cult (many of these brainwashed folks seething with violent intent).

Wojcick has also opted to crowbar in offensive ads, some with over ONE HOUR LONG run times; her sponsors oft as greedy, sleazy, corrupt and egomaniacal as Trump, himself. Yep, all these opportunistic bastards need do is show YouTube the money and she’ll grant them carte blanche to say and do whatever they fucking please.

Granted, YouTube’s wretched ways do not affect how the vids appear on this WordPress site, BUT…

Damn it! I’m the one who needs to audition the clips over at YouTube; i.e., where I have no choice but to slog thru all that Trumpian shit.

And, as a man of good conscience, who dearly loves my homeland and deeply loathes the very political sedition and economic opportunism, which both threaten to burn my homeland down to the ground, I have opted to no longer feature that platform’s content on my site.

Hence, my YouTube boycott will begin, effective January 1, 2021.

Granted… long sigh… in the grand scheme, one man of principle turning his back on YouTube, will not harm them in any way. But, at the very least, I’ll feel better just knowing I took a stand.

Will there be any exceptions to my New Year, new policy?

Well, all video companions to my past posts, inclusive of our Sunday Song Series, will remain archived on this site; filed both in chronological order and by category.

I’d consider featuring new videos were they to prove absolutely essential to preserving life and liberty.

That said, I hope you’ve enjoyed our Sunday Song Series and I thank you all for being such wonderful travel companions.

Alas, our journey will NOT be continuing seven days from now…
