"Front Butt" -- My inevitable legacy

from a Squidbillies audio engineer:
"Didja know there's a rap tune that samples your work on the 1st episode of Squids?

Click on the tune "El Chupa Nibre Remix".

Will you be paid? No. Now you know what David Bowie feels like.

the "Dangerdoom" project is rapper MF Doom and producer Danger Mouse, and the record was financed/commissioned by Cartoon Network. The album proper that came out didn't have this tune on it, but that link sends you to the remix EP that they're giving away for free. Each of the songs (from the record, and the EP) has some sort of tie-in to a specific show, so I guess this was the Squidbillies one. I'm sure CN gave them the rights to sample any of the shows, since its all kinda promotional. I just stumbled across it since I'm a fan of the rapper, and was surprised to hear your dulcet tones."

Kinda cool!
And kinda f-ed up.
Par for the course.

If the EP's being given away for free, then no one's getting paid for their work. Simple logic, Mary!

But ... you could pull a Gilbert O'Sullivan and sue DangerDoom the way O'Sullivan sued Biz Markie in the early '90s for not clearing a sample of "Alone Again (Naturally)" (an easy-listening classic, by the way), a move that resulted in Biz's album being taken off the shelves entirely. I can't remember which album it was, but it must be hard to find these days.

One other thing -- Andy Merrill will not shed a tear for you.

All i ask for is more work. i don't want anything taken off of any shelves, esp. anything involving Biz Markie (i had his cassingle, probably still do). Just keep hiring me, and be fair.

Like i said, this is kinda cool.

It's just frustrating when you have to *think* about rent money.

That's really frickin' cool. And remember what Flava Flav once said in regards to sampling, "Yo Chuck, that can't copyright no beats. What is they, crazy?"

I thought you'd like someone sampling your front butt.
