In the last 2-3 months I’ve written two blogs posts (this one and this one) dedicated to a recent pet project of mine: a blog 365 project I started back in April called Whose Line 365, sharing YouTube clips of Whose Line Is It Anyway? on a daily basis for a year. Unfortunately it’s time to put WL365 out to pasture, way before its time, only 1/5th-ish of the way through its journey.
You see, Warner Bros. Entertainment – the copyright owners of the US-side of the show – have started to request that YouTube blocks clips of its show. I’ll admit that the reason that I went ahead with WL365 was because for years they didn’t seem to care that WLIIA clips were being shared on YouTube – just my luck that they start to care now, but I can’t exactly argue. Regardless… given the fact that a) the majority of the clips available online are for the US version of the show, b) they’re starting to disappear one-by-one with no sign of stopping, c) I don’t want to get into any trouble for sharing them and d) I’m insanely busy in other aspects of my life as it is, I’ve decided to pull the plug on the project.
R.I.P. Whose Line 365. It was fun while it lasted. You may have been a Mochrie, but you went out in Stile(s). Take Care(y).
