Seeing Red

I have a Google Play Music All Access account, because (a) I'm an Android user and (b) because all the music services have basically the same library, but Google allow you to upload 20,000 tracks of your own, which is really handy.

Youtube now offer something called Youtube Red, a premium paid Youtube, which is ad-free (I think) and lets you play music in the background and stuff.

If you have a Play Music account you get Youtube Red for free.

I've been suspended on Youtube since about 2005.*

The result is kind of weird - all the premium features work, but most of the basic ones don't.

And this is Google, so it's basically impossible to get unsuspended.

Meh.

* I was uploading anime OPs and EDs, and around that time Sony Music automated their DMCA process.  I got suspended instantly, and I still am.

1 I don't suppose that now that you're a paying customer, you can get a "LiveHuman(TM)" to unfuck everything for you?

2 Doubt it.  Google don't really do that "customer service" thing.

I predict that over the next 20 years or so, Amazon will eat their lunch.  But Google were available in Australia on day one, and Amazon still aren't, really.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
