Subject: Chucky, could you please delete these?

Written By: kilgore523 on 05/18/11 at 12:21 pm

These parodies are complete rubbish that I regret writing, years after I submitted them, and the parody recordings aren't playable (as in, I never figured out how to make them work, and even if they did, my singing voice is miserable, so no one would want to hear them)  :)

Here are the parody lyrics:

And the recordings:

If you could delete these, that would be very nice.  :)

@ EVERYONE:

This is a very good opportunity to tell those who don't know, and to remind those who do, that you can't be sure that *anything* that you post on the Web can ever be deleted completely. (I think a certain Congressman just found that out.) The reason is that many search engines (like Google) and other organizations that "crawl" the Web often keep "cached copies" of the original web page, precisely in case the original page is deleted, the URL address has changed, the person or company is no longer in business, etc.

This came up when I was discussing the issue with a friend. To prove the point, I was able to locate a cached copy of one of Andria's song pages in her OP, complete with v/c and even the ads,  that have already been deleted *here* and give a 404 Not Found error if you click the links in her OP. Not going to say which song; where it was found; how I got there; or anything else about how it was done, out of respect for Andria's wishes. Probably some people here already know how. *Please* don't pass on any clues to those who don't know -- let's not encourage it.

This is good for professionals trying to locate research papers that were posted in 1998. It is not good for anything that you might later wish hadn't been posted. Aside from the Weiner "incident" (Rule #1 of comedy: Never go for the too-obvious joke.), a teen girl might think it's "cool" to  post nude pics of herself at TwitFace or whatever. Or details of her private life - took drugs, had s*x with this person and/or that one, etc. Later, she regrets that and removes them. But the minute anyone downloads that pic, they can post it all over the world, at their own site or any other site that hosts images uploaded by users. Or e-mailed to others. Or the web site can pass them on. Etc. And there have been cases where employers have located stuff about the applicant on the Web that damaged their chances of being hired.

And how will her future husband feel about this? Her children? She's now 40, and they're teens, browsing the Web. Nude pic of Mommy as a teen. Or her grandchildren, when she's 65 or 70. (Maybe proud, but maybe not full disclosure, so to speak.) And how will they feel about Mom's personal life as a teen -- especially when she's trying to bring them up not to do that?

Spoken words can hurt for a long time, but the more they're passed on (gossip, etc.), the more distorted they get, and memory fades with time. Written snail-mail postal letters could be copied and redistributed, or now, scanned and put on the Web. But *anything* you post will probably be out there *somewhere*, regardless of your efforts to delete it, forever.

Food for thought.

I'm not trying to pick on Andria; I'm grateful for the opportunity to illustrate this point, and I hope it's taken that way.

@ Andria: I remembered the parody in question. I didn't v/c it at the time, because even then, I didn't think it was a good representation of you as a writer. I think you made the right choice in asking to have that one deleted. Not going to go search for the others, because the point has been made.
