It was Jeremy’s birthday this past week, so between all of the huckleberry scouting and picking and shuffling about in the refrigerator, I managed to make him noodles on his actual birthday. It’s a Chinese tradition to eat noodles on your birthday for long life, but instead of Chinese noodles, we went with linguine and clams. It’s legit. I checked with grandma years ago and she said, “Yeah, any noodles will do as long as you don’t break them.” But when the weekend rolled around, I prepared the REAL birthday surprise – a cold seafood platter – because Jeremy loves loves loves sea critters.
ready to celebrate!
Yes, but only to a degree. I used to work in radio and there was a “7 second” rule for audio clips. I don’t know if that was how the law defined fair use or our lawyers felt that was the safe zone, but we were allowed to use sound clips from movies and TV so long as they were under seven seconds. You’ll need to do some research on specifics, but in general I suspect you’ll find you can use clips, but they can’t be minute long segments and you’ll probably have to justify their use with commentary on the clip or that the clip highlights.
