↑ Ambassador & Mrs Godley, Geo & bro at the Embassy residence in the Far East. A dedication to my parents, for everything.. positive and negative.. Dad said we were on different wavelengths but always wished me well to “get the show on the road”..the info superhighway.. I was brought up under a strict tyranny of fear, terror & everything forbidden; one moment they were nice, next short tempered, violent & abusive over the slightest nonsense with cruel unusual punishments, especially for ‘talking back’ communication. Retirement & heavy smoking, alcohol related throat cancer laryngectomy made him a nonstop obsessive-compulsive, tree cutting, weeding ‘work’aholic taking it out on me through forced hard manual child lab☹r on the farm all day, most days including weekends, most vacations, 5 months a year, age 10 to 20. A few exceptions & brief trips were like military operations, constantly forced to go to endless museums.
↑ Infinite chainsawed, axe split, stacked heavy wood in freezing snow, me, right, age 15, 6′, 155 lbs.; dad, wrong, left, 60+, 6’2″, 245 lbs. menacing frame & volatile temper masked by posed, staged smiles. If i didn’t, or complained, he’d get angry & might throw one, beat, belt, kick, cut off my allowance or disinherit me.. silence is golden.. More in ‘about’ F.A.Q.
A decade later, the result: before & after ↕ L㋡L
EUROPE TRAVELOGUE 1 Geo Godley censored version euro trip from geo godley on Vimeo.
After several jobs (see ‘about’ F.A.Q), found solace in art, music, & video, recording mom’s verbal abuse in original song “up the creek without a paddle” she unwittingly co-wrote & performed lead vocals on lol:
Up the creek, Bahamas spring break, Summer love © geo godley million photo memoir timelapse from geo godley on Vimeo.
A career in audio engineering, arts & entertainment was the last straw for 2nd mom.
EUROPE TRAVELOGUE 1-2 Neptun Romania Mykonos… by georgegodley
I was supposed to be a square conservative businessman.. 1 out of 3 ain’t bad. This was the overpriced, mouse infested St. Martin’s Lane London 2 bedroom ‘luxury’ apartment next to the 5 star Ian Schrager (Mondrian/ Sky Bar/ Delano) St. Martins Lane hotel, chronically ill from season affective disorder lack of natural light, carbon monoxide boiler flue & electric substation while recording & editing my channel 4 U.K t.v documentary series & soundtrack.
Youtube breach, wrongful termination & theft of 10,000 subscriber youtube.com/geogodley & theft? of 10,000 of 13,000 youtube.com/georgegodley videos & metadata Fullscreen contract accounts was the last straw of years of unrewarded work, financial investment & trust. Moron ‘about’ page..
A tribute to my folks for making it all possible- even if they wish they hadn’t! Dad’s diplomatic foreign service career slideshows coming soon.
Mom, Dad & Bob Hope in Laos. Dad spoke very highly of Bob Hope to me when I mentioned him. Mom was less impressed, disparaging him for being an entertainer, which she considered low class and unacceptable, masked by her phoney smile is in this picture. In my case there were no such theatrics; it was the chorus I would hear until she cut me off & disinherited me. Reasons: her mother didn’t allow her to be an artist/ entertainer either & her father disinherited her. (indirectly: left it all to granyaya who gambled it away). Note the SEXIST DRESSCODE: men wear coats, ties, trousers, women wear sleeveless half nude tops & panties (sometimes lol).
Dad getting sworn in as American Ambassador to Laos by Savang Vatthana, last King of Laos who was deposed by the Pathet(ic) Lao communists.
Dad in the Congo with Moise Tshombe (2nd left), president Joseph Kasavubu (center), & prime minister Patrice Lumumba (2nd right) before Tshombe & U.S/ Belgian authorities killed him, misinterpreting his anti-colonialism & neutrality as communism.
Dad with totalitarian dictator, ‘alleged’ mass murderer, $5 billion USD embezzler, “president” Mobutu Sésé Seko Nkuku Ngbendu wa Za Banga. (Self appointed title meaning “the fearless warrior who goes from quest to conquest spreading fire in his wake”). And I’m worried about picking the right friends or career. Source: wikipedia
Mom looking better than ever except for the fur coat with her first husband CARE humanitarian organisation official Melvin Johnson (far right) who she married age 17 to escape her mother who “never cared about her [till it was too late] and lost her fortune gambling [with Frangistas]” (mrs Venizelos quote). Mom told me they divorced because she “got bored with him”.
Left to right: Chainsmokers ‘Uncle’ George Deas, who laughed like this: “kihkihkih!”, Mrs. Lefki, dad, granny ‘Yaya’, Mr. Lyberopoulos, anesthesiologist ‘Aunt’ Sonia Dea -emotional tampon & paid confidante mom (far right) telephoned & dumped on in any ‘crisis’ instead of a psychotherapist. A couple decades later she was still invovling her in unecessary self induced problems, phonetapped for evidence of dad’s extramarital aspirations. Tape recorded transcripts:
-This little bum [Geo] runs after every skirt & is lying to us. He says he’s getting £10,000 but they’d never pay him for anything, he has no talent & doesn’t know music! All my life i supported my husband & this little bum having a good time with his money,it’s eating me up alive!
‘Aunt’ Sonia’s reply: “tell [Geo] he doesn’t step foot in the apartment again”. (Sonia & her son later inherited it).
Dad on mom’s money ocd: money’s everything to her because she never had it. [People] aren’t about money, but upbringing.
Mom telling the estate agent to lie & tell dad she can’t sell the other apartment:
-The Ambassador is selling our other apartment [because "the american embassy associated agency renting it are crooks"]. He knows that bothers me & does it on purpose like we’re starving or something. I won’t sell it no matter what, he can’t sell it without my signature. Half of whatever’s his is mine. [no prenup]. At some point i’ll all but hit him on the head for this. Tell him you can’t sell it becasue it’s the worst time to sell anything now.”
writing in progress- undiplomatic version
-Youtuber pioneers quit in oblivion as youtube overpromotes soft porn & lazy oligarchs to billions of (automated bot?) views with failed alexa rankings exposing the fraud: the figures don’t add up.
-Vid‘conned’: youtube theft of youtube/geogodley account & 11,000 youtube/georgegodley videos subject of cybersecurity data theft documentaries & reports. Please tweet/ facebook wsj tech section, nyt, wired, tmz, huffingtonpost, bbc, dailymail, tech blogs etc.
-Next: websites, tv, music, film, book festivals.. after getting screwed by youtube, who’s next..
↑ youtube false struck, wrongly terminated & stole my Fullscreen contract account(s) for fully clothed, blurred, covered women & NON community NON guideline violations while overpromoting these nude, pornographic assh☀les! it took years of unrewarded work & investment to get (& lose) what these rigged pornographer oligarchs get overnight! (probably automated bots like most top youtubers lol -pewdiepie profanity #FAIL alexa rank last week june 2014: almost 3 millionth, 100% bounce rate lol) wsj.com fails to report the fraud while bragging about his alledged annu(s)al $4 million adsense salary scam.. http://online.wsj.com/articles/youtube-star-plays-videogames-earns-4-million-a-year-1402939896?mod=WSJ_hp_RightTopStories
So i missed this year’s vidCON (“CON” = swindle, french definition: “cunt” lol (see below ↓ lol) assuming it would be in july again not wishing to lose another summer dealing with phony, f(l)ake, counterproductive, negative aholes for nothing. Since last year’s vidCON amounted to nothing but a CON, the destruction & theft of years of unrewarded work & investment with the wrongful termination of youtube/geogodley fullscereen network contract & theft of 11,000 youtube/georgegodley videos, what’s the point? Vidcon youtube staff do nothing to help: when asked about false strikes & pagination failure “load more” button hiding/ theft of 11,000 videos, they destroy you while overpromoting soft porn & minors using sexually explicit profanity & violating ©opyrighted music & community guidelines?! (see below) It’s so sickening, you literally feel like puking on them.
As ever, the usual schizo contradiction- the real insanity is outside the asylum: the few positive exceptions, nice people, helpful info & ideas exchanged, historic video footage.. but it’s too late, they sold out months ago. The usual gamble, who knows what might (or might not) have happened.. either way groundhog day/month/year history repeats itself unless you break the cycle. So it’s adieu youtube, not another penny or minute lost over this tragic waste of time & money. No point working & eyestraining e-marketing & promotion for dummies books when 11,000 videos are missing. Time to move on & take business elsewhere. In his video “Becoming a truck driver”, at 1min55, happycabbie says”the moment we stop trying to accomplish a goal is the moment we stop living”.. again ironically, the reverse is also true: we start living lol.. change goal, ahole! how bout the billions whose goal is to have no goal.. while we get screwed losing our lives trying to “make something of ourselves”..
FAILED ALEXA RANK (S)HIT LIST OLIGARCHS
rather than give them more undeserved unreciprocal publicity, just go to vidstatsx.com “most viewed” to see the sad face of youtube & alexa.com to see their even sadder alexa rank #FAIL compared to playboy, hustler, youporn & the blandest blogs. Youtube’s #3 alexa rank is from using other’s content, but on their own these non cuntent providers fail miserably despite unfair advantage, nothing to aspire to or be impressed by. They dominate the “popular” (=”unfairly overpromoted” ) channels link box in everyone’s homepage margin, exposing a multimillion dud subscriber count who click “subscribe” & ignore just like facebook non”friends” & twitter non”followers”. A tiny fraction like 1% is it #getreal #internet:thebiglie lol.
Lazy effeminate loud obnoxious underage minors using inappropriate, non family unfriendly, adult sexually explicit profanity, ©opyright music infringement, community guideline violations with impunity, overpromoted & rigged to get 50 million views & a million subs while the rest of us get nothing but false strikes, threats of termination, unfair censorship, wrongly stolen accounts & content.. ↓
2min.20, etc; the more profane & less work, the greater the reward, but in our case, the opposite. youtube endorses, glorifies & overpromotes uderage lackeys’ profanity so join the club, ahole..
Staged fake? gross out toilet humor shit pranks = a million views a month ↓ probably fake coz unlikely someone with white shoes is inches away when taking a dump with nutella & camera
the QUIT LIST: R.I.P in memoriam: forgotten, failed, quitters (quitting gambling = curing disease) who just can’t compete against rigged youtuber oligarchs living off google’s $200 million dollar promo package purse handouts. included are non quitters with the same fail result whether they quit ot not
bumbling nitweet Tony Thewinekone Huynh 27,790,452 views, 127,385 subs, 500 daily views. it can’t be his sexually explicit humor youtube dropped him like a hot dumpling for since they let makemebad be even more inappropriate lol.
Paul renetto Robinett on & off like a french robinet tap, tripple digits, when the house is in foreclosure youtube’s the last concern.. update fri 27 jun 2014: back w/ another long winded 40 minute ramble w/ 4 minutes of info blablabla lol
xGobohasbeen who? lol
nalts – youtube shitcanned his fail farts & hair transplants over shayturd’s age difference & injury risk throwing kids like rag doll muppets
pipistrello- shoulda known he’d quit a 200 daily view score despite nalts’ help & his “viewcount numbers don’t drive me” & “complaining about low viewcounts is dipped in loser sauce”.. guess the t-shirts didnt sell.. after eating tripe & gross grub, a health binge off to puerto rico w/ chica never to be seen again adios.
supered86- proof 35 million views, a quarter million subs & being in sexually explicit makemebad’s other channels link box for years gives only a few thousand daily views. Assinine content doesnt help either lol
thehappyhooker83: afro “sex worker” for lack of a less politically correct noun had better things to do than hassle cops & entertain for nothing after cuntstant multiple account theft & reappearances
Gary inmendham kosher- decent into sinking incoherent madness; the more shit he spews the lower the viewcount despite theamazingatheist sticking him in tjdoeslife other channels box
bespectacled fedora’d “the ugly one in the bak”"but anyway” tommyfromthebronx went nowhere at forty f-cking f-bombs a minute
zipster08- once youtube’s overpromoted gayzer, mentioned on tv as “how the hell did that guy make it”, dropped like a hot turd after mamalocobooboo elder drag corpse makeup horror show
itschriscrocker- lost it all after britney hissy fit & gay pornos.. why beat around the bush when you can just fill it..
Thetemplemans daily became weeakly; didn’t answer most comments, didn’t show work, interactions, drama etc, disabled recent ratings, didnt read e-marketting for dummies
what’s his face billy ray yamsen’s gay ex roomate who did the pretentious lame ass bogus viewcount & nonsubscriber scores.. willofdc.. history
the list is endless.. most everyone you know / met dumb enough to think something positive would happen.. including us lol..
“remember the quitter? neither does anyone else” but bet s/he had a better time..
conclusion: youtube lies, cheats & steals content (youtube/geogodley & 11,000 georgegodley videos) while promoting soft pornography & lazy oligarchs swearing profanity violating ©opyrights & community guidelines with failed alexa ranks compared to the blandest blogs, seen in previous blogposts. TIme to move on, this was a final record of youtube 2014.
Monuments Men: like the nazis, youtube steals art, accounts, content; in another teaser trailer Kate Blanchett calls stolen art “people’s lives”.. ergo, youtube steals & ruins lives & we need Kate to “steal stolen art” lol. All you complicit, silent, doing nothing to help right the wrong, expect the same when it happens yo you. When the nazis came after the jews you were silent, came after the gypsies you were silent, came after the gays you were silent, came after you, there was no one left to to be silent.
disclaimer: sincere fact based thoughts n’ feelings, subject to change without notice though that’s logically highly unlikely. Apologies for errors & omisions but how the hell would we know since Google/ youtube has no customer service/ public relations for contracted content conned.. Nothing against google, youtube, oligarchy, pornography, just fraud, anticompetition & theft. All this & more in VIDEOBLOGGER.COM documentary feature film..
don’t bite the hand that feeds you, blog the ahole dick that screws & starves you..
update fri 27 jun 2014: possible change of tone & attitude: from now on a more diplomatic version will be more tolarant, contsructive, productive, optimistic, positive, enjoyable, entertaining, informative, with possible ideas & solutions like waiting before sending angry emails..
Slow news unworthiness week: ITN & Dailydot “snews” glamorize Socko Riffraffedi’s youtube video saying he won’t have sex during the sucker world cup. Check his cock, your twat & butt for sores & warts when he pays to bang you on video; in this old lukeisback interview he says he has herpes so it’s not the world cup he waits to clear up, heads up for the flare-up!
“Let me tell you a secret: in this business everybody has herpes, myself included. Every professional in the porn-world has herpes, male or female. It’s the smallest thing you can get, it’s really nothing serious. Now and then it shows up on your body, then you get small blisters or ulcers on your mouth or genitals. Sometimes it returns once in two years, sometimes two times a month. It’s called Herpes Simplex. “My doctor said every fourth person on earth has some kind of herpes, a quarter of the total world-population.” -Rocco Siffredi herpes interview: (middle of page): http://www.lukeisback.com/stars/stars/rocco_siffredi.htm
disclaimer: once again top overpromoted youtubers like amazingatheist publish videos with explicit sexual language with no age restriction to get their addsense pennies, so why should we suffer unfair censorship. we can be just as disgusting as y’all & moreso if need be..
-Youtube closes (steals?) all refbatch Anna Matskevich accounts with another 40,000 videos AGAIN- (+ 30,000 refbatch videos = 70,000+ total) due to ©opyright claims from.. herself?! or schizophrenic alter ego; “that was the other guy/ gal..“ They hide her new account u.r.l with the forgettable code number “https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9oMn60iMGN4yb-96gLBjEg” as she uploads another 1,000 vids in 5 days like nothing happened. “Refbatch Batchref“. There’s something comforting about her resilience & “4 hours ago” new denture shit eating grin lol ↓
↑ update fri 20 jun 2014: youtube closed that account too with the same suspicious false? dm©a notice.
↑ All that’s left of Anna Refbatch Matskevich’s 70,000+ vanished videos, cryptic content, thumbnail theft & mad metadata is whatever ‘no-lifers’ saved lol..
↑ youtube content kleptomania side effects: dazed disorientation, ghastly gaze, messy mane, slobbish sloppiness, brain boggling baffled bumblings
-Youtube terminates unsavory iconoclastic conmeandian Rick the dick self proclaimed “walking ad for abortion” Cough loogie’s accounts AGAIN, for allegedly threatening to “firebomb your house & watch your family burn”. Terminated accounts coughlan666, 616 & 000 had millions of views & tens of thousands of subs thanks to larger channels he verbally attacked to solicit a mention. And the odd youtube overpromoted low res feature on homepages before he did that “jizz on google chairmen’s wives photos” video. He promptly opens yet another account like nothing happened with the usual satan incarnate user i.d DickDoNasty DickDynasty666 & begs us to spread the number of the beast ↓
-mean spirited spaz(zy) gimmeaflakeman says Shayturd Disney Maker network ain’t worth it, is a negative experience, take $300 a month while ignoring & doing nothing for him, so he won’t post until end of october contract. He fails to appreciate they gave him 30 million views for sloppy, mediocre content while others like yours truly working far harder barely got 3 (on each account). We used to communicate in comments & video responses but that changed when he said “i won’t mention you unless you get cancer or do an incredibly good or bad video” while he hogged the audience while mentioning other drab whack jobs like Gary inmendham. Since then, i get motion sickness nausea from his jerky hammy voice, hyper tension & toilet humor. His cancerous cantankerous comment comes back to haunt him as the Fuckushemale Daiichi nuclear disaster wreaks radioactive wrath on his thumbnails ↓
-150,000 monthly view adultfyi & mikesouth adult blogs consistently outrank 25 million monthly view Nigahiga & ALL top youtubers’ alexa rankings: 48k & 29k vs. 79k globally & 11k & 6k vs. 58k U.S thanks to bounce rate, daily page views & time on site (automated bots? lol). Text outranks video.

+automatic thumbnail creation & storage in folder next to mp4′s

-b&h customer reviews say incompatible with final cut 10 editing, only sony vegas
-rolling shutter fx

-corrupts cards: disables editing writing file title metadata, disables file deletion.. “cannot be deleted”..
-looks too dark & faded in low light, darkens image even in bright light, blacking out shadows, but nice flattering contrast, dual record photos during video twice as dark as video
-stops recording sometimes, esp. with remote photo button- gotta be vigilant
-much lower volume mono speaker compared to nx30 loud l.c.d. stereo speaker- inaudible when outdoors
optional not included accessories

-belt case or it’ll rip pockets & make u look like you got an erection
-light w/ clip mount
-sony vegas coz incompatible w/ fcpX according to b&h customer reviews?
custom XLR mic, heavy lens, light rig pros & cons
+ok when it works, nice results
+such a pain, less competition because most people won’t bother to be tortured
-too fiddly, constant fidgeting w/ bits n pieces, tortuous
-painful on hands, torture
-unstable, unbalanced, hassle, inconvenient, crooked on tripod
-falls apart -putty
-time waste, slows you down
-hassle to rig & unrig
update: sun 1/ mon 2 jun 2014
A second sony ax100 camera also rattles in quieter rooms, noticeable in headphones. The rattle is loudest when putting ear on it or covering the built in microphone. In a normal room the rattle was masked by an unacceptable loud flanging noise less audible on other cameras; when moving into the quieter connecting bathroom, the flange was replaced by the rattle ruined recordings.
conclusion: both fdr ax100 cameras returned for worse audio than the sony nx30 fan hissing noise. The nx30 has xlr adapter phantom power for external mics with less crackling noise over audio level 5. Dilemma: 4k picture with rattle & hum or hidef with fan noise take the hiss..
update sun 29 jun 2014:
no way to say nay to 4k! 4k’s ok! goin all the way, babay, yay!
sat 24 may 2014 Despite youtube theft of GeoGodley account & 10,000 youtube/GeorgeGodley videos while overpromoting others to billions of views, it outranks them in the latest alexa ranks.

update tue 8 july 2014:
after this blog was written, alexa suspiciously stopped showing youtube.com/georgegodley rank details, with the message “not enough data available”.
sun-wed 18-21 may 2014-
There’s been several requests to resume youtube/georgegodley multiple daily vlogs after the 13,000 videos a year stopped when youtube wrongly closed one account & hid/ stole 10,000 videos off the other by limiting access to 34 pages x 30 videos for the public to see (about 1,000) & 100 pages of about 30 videos a page = 3,000 limit for the content provider to see. Apparently dailymotion is just as bad, stopping after 100 pages of 18 videos a page = 1.800 video limit: http://www.dailymotion.com/user/hulu/100 .. Type in & replace the “100″ with 101, 102 or 103 & it stays on page 100! ☠ Cond☹lences hulu on your loss of 200,000 nondailymotion video uploads, thumbnails & metadata no one can see unless searched or embedded elsewhere. what a waste..
http://www.dailymotion.com/user/reuters/100 24,000 hidden invisible stolen videos r.i.p ☠
More proof 3rd party hosting is NOT to be trusted as self hosted top alexa ranked sites only use it for advertising & promotion while the rest of us..
+less censorship conflict: accepts & hosts every video youtube false flag struck & removed
+age gate switch off to see falsely/ age restricted vids
+more facebook & twitter shares under video
+larger viewcount than vimeo despite both top 100 alexa rank
+autoplays all videos one after the other starting earliest to most recent & cycles from earliest one again. No advertisemsnts on them if you’re signed into your account.
+shows number of videos on front page (youtube hides that, shows it only under opened played videos)
+/-? hosts adult content porn & lets marc dorcel sell it as pay on demand
+embeddable flashy widget
+loud ass mega flashy banner
-non profit waste of time & money
-content/ data theft: 100 page, 1800 video limit; no visibility or access to more except questionable search or external embeds.
-smaller audience viewcount than youtube
-annoying advertisements without revenue/ compenstation: interrupts video play & even page browsing skipping w/ full page blocking adds
-often won’t change / customize thumbnails so you’re stuck with ugly ones lol
-false age restriction: wrongly hides videos & thumbnails as “age restrited” when there’s no adult content in them, or if a word like “ass” or “bitch” is in the title.
-audio/ video playback dropouts compared to vimeo / youtube
+/-? hosts adult content porn & lets marc dorcel sell it as pay on demand but unfairly censors & restricts/ warns everyone else not to
-tag limit/ malfunction/ disappearance
+less censorship conflict: accepts & hosts every video youtube false flag struck & removed, allows non sexual nudity: nude vloggers – do you really want to show how small it gets lol
+looks & feels really neat, nice & cozy, says “welcome home”, signs emails “love, vimeo” lol
+thumbnail choice, customization & modification compared to dailymotion
-nonprofit waste of time & money
-45 minute processing delay
-500mb weekly weakly limit
-embarassingly lower daily viewcount stats under videos but you can hide them in settings
-must be logged out of browser to artificially inflate viewcount lol but why bother
-$200/ year for 20gb/ week, for probable proper pagination showing 600 pages of 12 vids per page = 6,000+ videos on “staff picks” https://vimeo.com/channels/staffpicks/videos/page:662/sort:preset but unverified pagination for content providers.
-FAIL search non results: type name of a user like “nudamericanwade” or “georgegodley” & nothing comes up, not channel or videos even though they’re somewhere there.
+larger audience viewcount & community interaction
+unlimited uploads (but they disappear after 1000 publically & 3000 privately, invisible & inaccessible except through questionable search if metadated & external embeds: see “content/ data theft” below)
+website & social network links & google /yt search results
+infinite content & ☠ pirated ©opyrighted music napster got closed for?!
+welcome vid”con”ventions even if they go nowhere while a select few are overpromoted to success
+search results, monetization, network contracts
-nonprofit waste of time & money
-content/ data theft: 34 “load more” pages x 30 videos = 1000 publically available video limit, 100 pages x 30 videos = 3,000 privately available video limit in video manager. They hid & stole 10,000+ georgegodley videos & wrongly stole geogodley investment account while hosting & promoting other’s flagrant community guideline violations.
-unfair selective censorship false flag strikes (see previous blogposts)
-unequal pay for equal or much more work- Obama?! gotta do your own marketing & promotion, nothing happens, & even when it happens, it doesn’t happen (tens of millions of views & hundreds of thousands of subs don’t guarantee high daily viewcount- supered86, renetto, thewinekone..)
-doomed to fail
VIDEO HOST SHITLIST:
Bliptv, blogtv, metacafe, livestream, livevideo, mp3.com, Rev(v)er, stickam, ustream, veoh, vu(i)er, xtube, youporn, etc:
-untrustworthy disreputable mediocre &/or defunct deadbeats false censored &/ or stole my & other’s content!
tinypic, liveleak, ..
-archive.org: terms: “Because the content of the Collections comes from around the world and from many different sectors, the Collections may contain information that might be deemed offensive, disturbing, pornographic, racist, sexist, bizarre, misleading, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable. ”
+no unfair false flag censorship
-exorbitant fees, no guarantees
-no accredited recommended web developers yet..
-non profit wasted time & money
-pain in the..
-other concerns, conflicts & obstacles:
-failed conversion software, bad internet connection, nonprofit waste of time & money, hoax/ troll/ s, stopped or banned for vlogging- by a very small minority of people or establishments on record, etc.
conclusion: apparently the i.t stone age isn’t optimized for democratic video self hosting & is still primarilly text & picture driven.
disclaimer: just my earnest thoughts feelings & opinions. apologies for errors & omissions
dear vimeo support:
1. does vimeo pro include unlimited pagination, if i upload 100,000 videos over many years will they all be visible with pagination pages to both me the content provider & the viewing public? or does it stop like dailymotion after 100 pages x 18 videos per page = 1,800 video limit, or youtube’s “load more” button after 34 pages x 30 videos per page = 1,020 video limit? i just lost a year’s worth of 11,000 youtube videos they hid & stole!
2. how do you know if someone complaining that they don’t want to be in the video is really in the video & not some hoax?
3. can a vimeo pro account revert to a free account after uploading tens of thousands of videos if ithe content provider stops uploading & doesn’t need the features any more, or is it a perpetual $200 annual fee just for the storage?
4. can you recommend someone to help me build a self hosted site for my world record videoblogger.com?
thank you -Geo Godley

TALK 2 U (drumless) George Godley Videoblogger… by georgegodley
i enjoy/ feel like talkin 2/with ♥
pretty soon the sky/ies will be blue
we are/say hi/ & i try coz there’s nothin better to do
← SONY RX1R full frame dslr quality compact.
14 mb, 6000 x 4000, 350 dpi iphoto converted to 35 kb, 640 x 430, 72 dpi, medium size & quality. PROS: best audio & 24 mpxl picture quality of any compact when focused. Non-touch screen works in magnetic fields. Feels powerful, solid & reliable unlike canon s100/110 which kept stopping, had muffled audio & rattled. Great features, timer, burst, etc. CONS: slow & shifty autofocus, narrow angle lens, won’t keep everything in focus if subject in front, blurred backgrounds in auto mode unless manual aperture priority ∞, f22 & high iso, mediocre stabilizer, heavy, no macro, no remote, no flip screen, no dual record, no batery charger.. -LOUD AUTOFOCUS BEEP & PHOTO SHUTTER NOISE makes a KACHUNK clicking sound like a TR-909 drum machine handclap, intimidating people & even got me banned from one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants for photo blog n’ vlogging my meals (on doctor’s recommendation to document my diet for food allergy medical research) despite having permissions/ verbal releases & being a most polite, generous & loyal customer w/ receipts, photos & videos to prove it (details coming in “Last *Ka-Click!* supper”, SUMMER/ FALL 2013 episodes) lol.. volume can be decreased a bit by covering bottom speaker, not in menu. 28 min. max. MP4 not continuous like AVCHD. Still preferable to lower res, smaller image censor & inferior optics Panasonic LX-7 which occasionally artifacts & corrupts the image & looks & sounds harsher.
Just tested 2 units of the SONY HXR-NX30U & was VERY DISAPPOINTED with the high pitch hum & hiss noise with both built in & external mics (supplied sony ECM-XM1 & senheiser MKH-416) & constant crrackling XLR adapter noise audible in all recordings. The hum & hiss automatically goes on in record mode, probably a fan to prevent overheating which switches off digital cameras & DSLRs though i never noticed it before on previous models. Sony CX700 & PJ760 have rumble & hiss respectively audible on their body but not in recordings (-see 2012 blog for more criticism) & neither work with the NX30 XLR adaptor.
The constant XLR adapter crackle noise is most noticeable with inner earphones. Absolutely inexcusable but decided to keep one of the 2 units for reasons below.
Not one google search result on this, y’all deaf?!
sun 27 oct 2013. Canon XA10 is quieter & lighter, fitting in pocket but the store demo wasn’t working & made a horrible malfunctioning XLR adaptor buzzing noise, so i tested the more expensive XA20 which is too big to fit in pocket. Overall i prefer the Sony nx30 because on the canon, the external mic records on 1 channel only & there’s no switch to record to 2 channels (left & right= center). The sony has a switch on xlr input #1 selecting 1 or both channels. On the Canon, 2 screws in back & one screw in front make the xlr adapter slower to install & remove compared to sony’s 1 front screw & ultra fast plug in adaptor. On the canon, the XLR adapter has to be turned on in the l.c.d menu & doesn’t power up automatically like the sony, causing further hassle & delay when interchanging between built in & external mics. B&H specs say Canon dual records 2 megapixel photos during video, Sony 24 megapixels. In conclusion:
SONY HXR-NX30U PROS / ADVANTAGES
+nothing better on the market that size at this time 2013. Despite shortcomings & disadvantages it’s still better than cx700 & pj760 whose 3.5 minijack inputs hum & buzz intermittently & aren’t as reliable, making you constantly worry & monitor the sound in headphones for unlimited potential malfunctions (earth loops, connection crackles, etc.). (Pj760 built in mic & DEstabilizer were EPIC FAIL in previous 2012 review). With NX30 the malfunctions seem limited to fan hiss & xlr constant crackle so at least you know what to expect.
+fan hum & hiss noise almost negligible/ tolerable esp. w/ external mic depending on ambience level & how professional/ fussy/ purist you are
+XLR adapter crackling noise negligible/ tolerable at auto / manual level 5 & up depending on abience & how professional/ fussy you are
+XLR adapter mic holder is easy to remove mic & flip it backwards to record behind the camera, almost as well as rycote spin rig though it’s too wide to hold mics other then the supplied sony ECM-XM1 stereo shotgun so will need spongy padding or fastening it with the mic sponge.
+24 megapixel dual record photo video with stunning, rich colors & flattering contrast even if limited to a few a minute & some are blurry
+Faster buffer data storage than CX700, with less interruptions & disablings of record button.
+XLR adapter disconnects from shoe mount while power cable stays plugged in power socket, even if it’s very short, increasing flexibility to fit on car dashboard & other challenging places, unlike non detatcheable Canon XA10 & 20.
+No live headphone monitoring delay which was intolerable on the CX700 as you would hear the signal milliseconds afer you speak.
SONY HXR-NX30U CONS / DISADVANTAGES
-CONSTANT FAN HISS NOISE audible in recordings especially with built in mic, even if it’s quite low with external mic, depending on how good/ sensitive your ears are & your definition of “low”.
-CONSTANT XLR ADAPTER CRACKLE NOISE audible in XLR recordings especially under level 5 depending on how loud the ambience is. Absolutely inexcusable & i almost returned both tested units but decided to keep one because despite all this, external mic results still sound better & more reliable than cx700 & pj760 non xlr & unreliable minijack inputs.
-NO PHOTO CAPTURE ON SUPPLIED RMT 845 WIRELESS REMOTE COMMANDER, only on previous RMT 835 model.
-INCOMPATIBLE w/ PJ760 for VIEWING or RECORDING, “a movie w/ a different video signal format from this device has been recorded. Video recording disabled. (when swapping cameras w same used card from nx30 to pj760. Won’t even show movies thumbnails, just photos).
-NO PHOTO CAPTURE FROM VIDEO. “this function is currently unavailable”.
-XLR ADAPTOR JAMMED / STUCK SENHEISER MZA900- PREAMP on BOTH tested units. The first unit took many hours to fix by finding the right spot to loosen with a screwdriver, the second is still stuck & will probably be refunded.
-Drains battery much faster than CX700 esp. w/ XLR adapter.
-External mic & xlr adapter drains n empties battery when camera OFF!!!! overnight!! u gotta unplug it.
-dual photo video FAIL. Only takes one 12mpxl photo during video every 15 seconds when “capture” logo is on in l.c.d. 12mpxl CX700 took 3 immediately & then 1 every few seconds thereafter.
-built in light/ lamp often fails to light up when pressed during record? (pending further testing)
-no mention of this online pretending all’s well when it taint lol
-fails to keep photos in chronological order, no seconds only minutes
-nx30 & pj760/90 lies & pretends to take a photo during video but doesn’t: it gives you 3 for the first minute, then appears to clear the buffer by removing the “no photo camera” logo & green “capture” word in the lcd, deceptively appears to be letting you take more photos (at least 2 before the buffer is full again & the “no photo camera” logo goes on again) when in fact it only lets you take 1. This is sneaky & deceptive because they think no one will notice since it’s a hassle to keep verifying if the pictures were taken by constantly waiting for play mode menu windows.
+ULTRA WIDE ANGLE LENS & everything in focus, fits more info in picture at a fraction of the cost of sony rx1r
+ultra light so more portable esp. at night & aesthetically pleasing, bright white body blends in with similar clothing.
+smaller/ less threatening/ imposing although the lens sticks out
+silent shutter compared to Sony rx1r which makes a loud ass KACHUNK sound which got me banned from my favorite restaurant (SUMMER 2013 episodes) lol. (see above)
-REALLY GRAINY & SMEARY IN LOW LIGHT ESP. ANY MOTION
-SMEARY IN DAYLIGHT ANY MOTION
-SHAKY STABILIZER GOTTA KEEP STEADY & HOLD IT W HANDS & NOT MOVE MUCH
-COMPLEX DIFFICULT TO FIND MENUS, CONTRAST +2 ONLY WORKS IN A CERTAIN MODE WHEEL SETTING
-INTELLIGENT AUTO? PLUS?!
-P1010515 CORRUPT ARTIFACTS BEYOND GRAINY, VERY BAD AT TIMES, WELL LIT NO MOTION!!!! 1010380, 1010378..
-lens sticks way out
conclusion: a joy to wear due to light weight & bright white color but much worse results than RX1R except for ultra wide angle
NIKON [UN]COOLPIX A FAIL FOCUS & RECORD is a waste of a grand ’cause it constantly struggles & shifts focus in auto mode & the record button works one time in ten.
SONY RX100 FAIL with magnetic fields; tilting touchscreen freaks out & shuts off entire camera even when extended from camera body with putty. No battery charger. Pros: can be used as a backup camera away form magnetic fields & glorified battery charger & drainer for RX1R since neither cameras include one! Also does a few things the rx1r doesn’t, like macro, zoom, etc.
Am testing the new black GOPRO HERO 3+ & will post a review w/ pros & cons eventually.
