Compositional Guides: Why they don't matter, and when they do

I talk a lot about composition and compositional guidelines when critiquing images. I also see/hear a lot of others (elsewhere) talk about them like they are some kind of law. And I've seen them explained "incorrectly" more often than otherwise.
I don't always use the guides, but I almost always consider them.
So I made a video... beware, it's 16minutes of your life you will never get back!
