OK Go does it again… or… record labels, embeddability, cool videos, and a bit of life in this blog

So I have access to the tubes of the internet again. which means this blog may still have a bit of life left in it… for anybody still reading out there. no guarantees though… working in retail continues to kick my ass. Anyway, as you may know, I’m a pretty big fan of OK Go… and I’m not going to lie – what first sold me was the vector image of an early-model Volvo 240 on the cover of their album (conveniently titled OK Go). I quickly fell in love with “Get over it” which remains one of my favorite songs to this day. So I’m always intrigued when they come out with new stuff. And they’ve recently been blowing up in popularity with their quirky and fun videos… their newest single, This Too Shall Pass, already has well over 6 million views since its upload a week ago. Cool.

Whats not so cool is some of the hubbub surrounding record label rights, embeddability (is that a word yet?), and the way creativity is being handled. Check out more at Gizmodo, who have reprinted lead singer Damian Kulash’s open letter to fans regarding the issues. Interesting.

And for more interesting reading, Gizmodo has an awesome interview with Kulash here.
