LONDON – SEATTLE BRITISH AIRWAYS FLIGHT JUNE 2011

description of the image if you wantBritish Airways 747 jumbo jet, near the north pole, ~40,000 feet.. on my way to a TV audition but some sneaky confidentiality clause in the release signed at a later date prohibits me from EVER mentioning it without their permission?!?! deceptive because they dont tell you- he just said “oh it’s just a release” ..next time read it all & cross out whatever you don’t want, it should be negotiable.. they should appreciate the free publicity by letting us mention it and can’t expect a gag order on your life.. can’t be tooo unreasonable ..censorship is fast becoming my top blog theme. You’re never allowed to say anything.. no free speech

the entire 10 hour flight 3pm to midnight (4pm Seattle time) almost all windows were covered. Good to get some sun the couple days before.. I’m cautiously optimistic but have a premonition there’s always a negative side to everything and don’t want to jinx it by counting chickens before they hatch.. curb your enthusiasm

Must be more than instinct. They probably saw other eggs hatching, or remember their own hatching since it wasn’t so long ago, or just common sense, some shiny time capsule pops out of you something’s obviously there.. not rocket science.. unless you’re casey anthony..

Dear Geogodley,

We would like to inform you about your uploaded footage on youtube.
LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcwPS-ERawA

A small 5 second part of your uploaded footage will be used in a digital adidas campaign, for adidas International Marketing BV, Amsterdam. This digital campaign will run from September 2011 until March 2012 on adidas.com/ucltickets and links to social media. We have tried to contact you without getting a response. In case you are the original owner of the used 5 seconds of footage and/or you think you have specific rights to this 5 second clip, please contact: adidas@tbwa.nl
If you are NOT the owner of the footage or the person in the clip, please excuse us for contacting you. You can consider this mail as not sent and delete it.

Kind regards, TBWA\BEC Research Team

Dear TBWA/bec team, i did NOT give you my permission to use my ©opyrighted videos in your advertising campaign. You did NOT offer adequate compensation or credit and no deal was made. Please DO NOT ILLEGALLY USE MY MATERIAL or there will be legal reprecussions & media reports on your illegal activity. Either offer me proper compensation & credit which i will consider but don’t guarantee accepting or DO NOT BREAK THE DMCA LAW. copies of this email will be sent to my attorneys. sincerely geogodley.

[this is the compensation multibillion dollar corporation adidas offered! can you believe it?!?!? The company revenue for 2009 was listed at 10.38 billion and the 2008 figure at €10.80 billion.- wikipedia]

COMPENSATION: If you agree on terms and conditions and we finally select your footage to be part of the librabry, we can offer one official Adidas product [!?!?!?] for the use of +/-5 seconds of your footage. You can choose this adidas product from the ADIDAS_ PRODUCT_LIST which is attached to this mail. For this we need your permission stated and signed on an ADIDAS_RIGHTS_RELEASE_FORM. We will provide this ADIDAS_RIGHTS_RELEASE_FORM together with the ADIDAS_PRODUCT_PICK document a.s.a.p. when you want to participate.

Please let us know what you think.
You will need to agree on term and conditions as stated on a ADIDAS RIGHTS RELEASE FORM. (find attached)

We hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,

Erika & Vivienne

Dear Erika & Vivienne, Adidas is a multibillion euro company, to use my © video in an advertising campaign they should pay me at least 10,000 euros. That’s way below normal. Thank you anyway, sincerely geogodley

Ok, thank you for the reply. We respect your point of view. In fact we are just sorry as we think your video would really suit this project.

Just to let you know. I hope we could make clear to you what we are asking. The 10k compensation you are reffering to is not based on realistic fees. I actually can tell based on experience in  non-commercial and commercial productions.

Yes it is an Adidas project, but the offer we made to you is more in line with what the commercial use of 3 to 5 seconds of amature or pre-shot (stock)footage on the internet for a period of 1 year would cost. This is not a heavy Adidas TV campaign which we talk about. Its an online ticket promotion of a rather creative online platform.

Are you a professional? The shot we’d like to use is of such quality actually.
If you would be interested, we are willing to go back to our financial backoffice to see if we could work out a more workable fee for you.
And what about a non-exclusive license so you can keep all the rights to yourself, but just approve that adidas uses it to for this purpose.

When you really don’t want anything to do with this all, you will have my word: we won’t bather you again.
Have a good night

All the best
Erika V.

LONDON JUNE 2011

Rather than do uneventful daily vlogs i choose to wait & spend time on meticulously crafted episodes since it makes no difference to my daily viewcount. Everyone thinks the more you post on youtube the better, forgetting top youtubers were overpromoted unlike the rest of us may ever be, so why repell the audience with a channel full of mundane fragments & not rewarding, satisfying experiences. Or maybe best do both.. Time to get out there..

✄☹ USTREAM CENSORSHIP: UNCONSTITUTIONAL ANTI 1ST AMENDMENT CIVIL LIBERTIES FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION BAN: DRACONIAN CHINESE STYLE ORWELLIAN CENSORSHIP 禾馬鳥鹿水革糸月

Dear Margo,  I am appealing the unexplained sudden ban of my geogodley ustream channel after months of 24/7 live broadcasting linked to my honors charted youtube channel. Yesterday wednesday 8 june 2011 i was auditioning for SIMON COWELL’S X-FACTOR performing live original songs in a g-string for effect.
[photo: singing “I’m a stud”I’M A STUD ㋡n ITUNES Click here
A similar g-string performance already got me selected & shortlisted on the english version of that talent show. All seemed fine until about 7pm london/ greenwich meantime when i got the message “geogodley banned due to violating terms of service.” Since i own the ©opyright to my own songs & performance and was banned during it, i can only assume you didn’t like my g-string.
G-string is not considered vulgar or nudity since they are seen on every public U.S. beach. If you have rules against them it sure isn’t written in your terms of service which is long, complex, subjective and vague (vulgar can mean anything you want it to- even free speech expression spoken by millions on youtube, facebook, twiiter every day).
Maybe my behind was too visible for a few seconds as i exited the room and bent over comedically since i thought no one was watching (i’m flattered they [you] did ㋡). [i observed a viewcount of only 1 or 2 throughout the performance with a couple browser windows open, so ustream employees have nothing better to do than unfairly bully little guy underdogs knowing full well only they are watching. says a lot about the company & its public image / relations..]

Ustream’s loss, Livestream’s gain. Maybe we’re more suited to a free press platform for adults & ustream to Beijing where they have more in common 禾馬鳥鹿水革糸月. Note: the aim is not to burn bridges, diplomacy’s the best policy or get another account & ip to be enslaved by juvenile censorhip. disclaimer: Parody- not to be taken tooo seriously.. gtta say that just in case..


Could you please consider accepting my appeal as i will be careful to be heavily self – censor if that’s what Ustream requires. That includes no © background music ever by often muting the audio, right? sincerely geo godley.
[This is what some power abusing anonymous faceless ustream employee bans you for.. in an age of oversaturated x-rated hardcore internet porn, they mean spiritedly don’t forgive this brief 2 second innocuous accidental g-string wardrobe malfunction backside of michelangello’s David as i left the room.]


in life i know there’s lots of green.. some canadian in soho square who works in radio administration..

on a happier note, whats a geogodley blog without gorgeous ladies.. unheard of! goes without say, that’s better..

..1 hottie in her late 20s whose psycho kurd dad threatened violence if she’s on the internet.. more endless insane censorship as ever.. details in private post for security.. continued later. what a heavily censored week it’s been! will it get worse?

2 hot starbux turx.. gotta remember to take off the shades to see the eyes, it’s like chinese censorship again.. jeeez.. what is wrong with this world..

MAY 2011 LONDON ENGLAND

Glad to be here. Best things in life are free.. sun & sea breeze euphoria better than anything.. Resting mind & matter after a particularly strenuous mysterious decade. Where did it go? what happened? let’s find out while editing the archives..


May 2011 bank holliday weekends. A rare
sunny day in Brighton where everyone swarms
to knowing tomorrow is always overcast
& cold..

 

smoking hot turkey was leaving for italy next day.. could’ve convinced her to see my place nearby for fun footage, must remember to try since these opportunities don’t come forever..

.. Look at yououou! hyde park hottie dashes by. Her oesophagus sized wasted weist is smaller than her head.. puke much? if so get help.. ☺r give us some diet tips


some sweetheart gives me her number on the way to lunch. used to call everyone, now i call noone. why? better things to do? n☹t 


pretty persian poon puffs polonium poison paper penis prepuce (alliteration poetic license, no disrespect- well maybe a lil’.. how can you respect tobacco) sucking carcinogenic cigarette instead of.. 


how come it’s always an ugly woman feeding pigeons? pretty ones have no heart or can’t relate to dirty disgusting vermin.. The way they wobble their filthy head & body, puff their chest, coo cacophony, stalk, harass, eat garbage, copulate & defecate everywhere, so nauseating compared to those charming cute calm clean collared doves & wood pigeons who bow during courtship.. so opposite yet so related.. another contradiction. 


cellphone & cigarette double cancer risk.. if you don’t care who will.. gas yourself & fry your brain at once, kill two turds with one phone pwn.. blow that sh!t my way & i’ll blow it back atchu whhhh-eeew 


The book publishing industry arbitrarily censors & c-blocks us from ever contributing & getting a piece of the action, while hypocritically monopolizing & selling sexually explicit, supposedly “unethical immoral” (can’t impose values on others) prostitution comics.. EPIC FAIL banal mundane black n white boring sh!t.. not to worry though we’ll outdo them online.. two billion can play that game.. next: youtube gossip: terminated & reinstated youtubers etc. 

 


Dang book industry racket publishes more disappointing unreadable graphic novel/ memoir/ photocomics. They won’t give you or me a break but publish this black n white crap, exploiting & selling poor afghan’s photos without their release. Publicity rights my ass.. who the f buys this sh!t? i did- cluttering mind & life until realizing how lousy it all is.. take this book for instance. Looks like almost nothing happens and it lacks any elements in its unaesthetic offputting boring pages. we can do better because it couldn’t be much worse..

✄☹ YOUTUBE ARBITRARY CENSORSHIP STRIKES AGAIN a year after post!! CONTEMPORARY FINE ART SEX CARTOONS PG-13 version ©geogodley

Sun/mon March 6/7 2011

More insane contradiction: Youtube monetizes & partners my videos but not the channel, yet some anonymous youtube employee removes my CONTEMPORARY ART SEX CARTOONS PG-13 video a year after it was posted losing my witty description (should save metadata!). More irrational, arbitrary, inconsistent, prejudiced censorship: top youtuber Shane Dawson uses the word “fuck” in front of minors in his videos. Seth Mcfarlaine uses explicit sex in his “family guy” cartoons getting millions of youtube views. Timmy de la gateau has skeet semen squirts on his t-shirts and everyone talks about explicit sex. Yet the rest of us are censored for the exact same stuff- and less. You’ll notice i blurred & covered up. Time to start posting elsewhere like amazon, ebay, hulu, blip tv, ustream, vimeo, your own website, & affiliates, dailymotion, & probably too soft for xtube, youporn.. Also traditional media & publishing- Taschen, Fantagraphics, Phaidon, the list is endless.. Youtube’s loss, their gain. I love youtube and will cooperate despite the injustice. But why are you letting all those others do it? It’s like HBO & cable monopolizing adult content while all the other censored networks lose ratings & complain. You could just put a over 18 warning on it like so many others -not that my Dubai clip even deserved that, false flagging. Wake up youtube.. before we do.. here’s what they don’t want you to see courtesy vimeo, bliptv, daily motion etc. thanx guys ㋡< (blip is even more fascist & in cahoots with youtube, i recorded mr. blip at vidcon..)

He’s at it again.. images recorded for crime prevention, public safety, the greater good & a lil’ romance & soft sex in the city & beyond to boot(y).. slow year, the computer replaced everything.. gotta get out there. Even if some ‘vlogger shitlist’ bigots censor & prohibit photography & violate artistic integrity & Youtube chart honors.. who needs em anyway

On the way to the park i see gorgeous ladies
working in food joints. Hard to interact unless you eat their sh!t. There’s nowhere indoors you can go without buying stuff you don’t want. Which is why we’re out today since London summer’s so short, blink & you miss it.


My favorite thing about London: friendly familiar faces. Hi ladies! so good to see y’all again! Can’t be constant coincidence..divine intervention

My eyes oggle the latest youtube sensation(s),

I know you, you’re from Kuwait right!
Surprisingly sympathetic, great excercise patrolling the park catwalk.

Yogi played funky wa guitar on my “do yo thing” song a while back. He noodled some amazing licks but left ’cause the chords were too specific for his wild improv style. Now he says Bootsy Collins just did a cover of his song.

JUNE/JULY 2010

Try telling that to the neighbors.. theyr’e like “what do you DO over there?!” “Youtubers ‘work’ in their underwear”

My life or lack thereof.. what a waste living in
central London. Anything creative means work
around the clock. That ends today. Balance.

solemn mood dazed too much editing & computing. Endless technical challenges, errands & de-cluttering/ cleaning.. is vidcon an opportunity or same result as last gatherings? 10 timezone jetlag & thousands of dollars for what, didn’t we already do that to no avail? how do you say fück you at a yoütube gathering? “email me”.
Hey guys, thank you for the moral support, you’re the best


& always not nice dealing with antisocial amrikistan compatriot shitlisters.

It’s always nice to see people like Anna’s colleague on the way back from lunch.

How can u poison yourself?

Green park cutie

as did this one in the public square. Shoulda recorded the conversation, she was up for it. moving house, job at 6 a.m, someone stole her laptop..sony cx520 overexposes in dual record mode even with ae shift on..


Met this luscious lady on my way to the gym on thursday 1 july. Great conversation about difficulty getting american visas, studying in London..really made my day

Back to the ol drawing board..


Busker guitarist Paul & hottie actress
friend. Hey Paul don’t forget okay!

sat 12 june 2010 DRAMA SH!T

Hangin out with my I.T. friend in the vlogger friendly pub with no background music on weekdays. We drink a couple pints, i say “i miss drinking sometimes because it’s not as much fun without it!'” He says “i’m so glad you said that.” But no, you shoudn’t rely on that to have fun. The Leica D-lux 4 lens distorts & stretches my face in the corner, & the microphone sounds like sh!t. Not so deluxe inexcusable for a $1000 camera. Get your sh!t together Leica.

Can you believe these overkill overproduced
self important pretentious posers
with all
that extraneous equipment in this miniaturization
era? showing off their ‘bigger is better’ phallic
symol ‘hey everyone look at me, i’m so important!’
Better quality with bigger components but they
have that attitude like..”i’m up there with
spielberg, so cool & happening”. No the hell
you’re not. You’re an unsympathetic cog in the
greasy media wheel of prefabricated industrial
cack. Need an extra?☺ 

He & his sister’s ex Neil sit down a minute laughing & being very nice to my face & then leave abruptly behind my back without a word not to be seen again. Months later i find out through a 3rd party it’s because i jokingly said “dont nick (=steal) anything. No sense of humor. With friends like that who needs enemies. But if you cut off all unreliable unstable flakes there’d be no one left. Need 2 get out more.. they aren’t “all there”. BJ’s the utimate irrational contradiction like everything in my life. One of the nicest & worst people ever. In my videos at important moments when no one else was, even put me in touch with the I.T. guy, so.. take the rough with the smooth.. total mind phuq though. How much SH!T do you take?
BJ crawls out of hibernation unannounced at 1.40 a.m. typically on a non-happening tuesday night after months of unanswered calls. His rare once a year annual pilgrimmage to zone 1. All smiles and a jolly good chap on the surface, but behind the mask, what lies beneath..

Chillaxing w/ busker Paul for over a decade. Another paradox always around the corner. One moment it’s ‘yea i’m gonna be famous get my image out there’, next he’s like ‘dont take my picture’ when he looks his best w/ his spectacular afro. Stood me up at a recording session but buskers are supposed 2b spaced out.

Which is why i love central London. Just step
outside & make new friends. The cosmopolitan vibe is great thanks to east europeans. keep the camera straight woman!

I hook up with a cute blonde who takes my youtube card between her pushup bra cleavage. Cockblockers nearby sense her availability & try to cut me out of my piece of pie by shoving their face in her t!ts. They ask her to join them for a drink elsewhere to knock her out with alcohol & get in her panties. They seem bi & camp, eating both sausage & crumpet. London’s a fast town. Nice try assholes but she’s not going home with you either. Rip out the vaseline boys.

Kassem looks like he’s had a rough year with all that youtube front page featuring promotion, box4box & collab overexposure. Slow down efendi, stress is premature ageing. 


Oh my gosh looks like a winning streak! come n get it MILF!  Bulgarian beaut. What am i doing. Good boys keep diaries, bad boys have no time, i must be a friggin angel. Later aholes! It’s about time str8’s get the same public toilet cruising privileges as gays as seen above.. 


Gotcha 

MAY 2010

In between work, a rare moment off the computer: wet walk to Covent garden vegetarian/ vegan lunch. Say hi to various fast food bosses & employees on the way. Pleasant atmosphere.

Charing cross road, London. Spring breeze
rustles tree leaves in contradictory weather
temperature, hot 1 moment, cold the next.
Especially at night..

She hates being photographed / videoed in public by strangers. I put the camera away, missing the best footage ever & ask what the flyers are: a Maori massage offer for £70 ($100) for half or one hour, far away, for the next 3 days only. I say she should model & collab w/ me for youtube etc & she says yes if i pay.
Greek american hottie handing out flyers freaks when she sees the Hc9 & wide angle lens. Public photography /video is
unpredictable, so you develop an instinct for
difficult troublemakers! luckily she wasn’t tooo bad..


Liking people doesn’t guarantee chemistry. Used to go for almost anyone since fussing over appearance is shallow but after a long relationship left me mentally & emotionally drained everyone looks kinda average and not so irresistible anymore. This lady’s pretty, cool & fun but it’s not quite happening 4 some reason. Or maybe it is.

We’ve become friendly yet when i call she’s changed her tone, says she doesn’t mean to be rude but has a boyfriend & “doesn’t want a personal relationship“, just business.. don’t flatter yourself sweetie! “if your’e in it for the money you probably won’t make much”- richard branson.

Acting like I’m actually going to buy burger king junk food to meet a typically warm friendly italian cutie. My acting skills have improved in real life: pretending to do things so as not to stick out too obviously/ suspiciously. Ambiguously, it’s not total deception: you may be convinced to enact the act; they sell healthier foods too.

Wow, them magyars are friggin hot, i’m goin’! this hotel supervisor’s a bit conservative & may/ not be suited to artsy fartsiness. U never know. When she let me video her it felt like a connection, really tantalizing oooh! sit on my f☺ce

Who could take their eyes off beautiful arabs. Not exactly friendly or approachable, kinda like a ferocious rhino & her calf.. Too bad they’re covered up & 2 difficult. Travelling to english parks every spring/summer to cool off from scorching 100 degree Arab gulf heat- must sweat buckets down there & never leave air conditioned buildings & cars..
Hyde park bank holiday sunday meeting alota ladies, including this sultry slovak, but i’m bird watching..

April 2010

Who the hell buys this useless sh!t? “giving lots” says £7000 ($13,000) per elephant, of course associating it with a tax deductible charity scam. What a waste & insane mockery of the value of hard earned cash. Let’s just sit around & make elephants, pollute the town & shove them in everyone’s face. What an accomplishment. Of course as a gift you appreciate anything. Having vented i feel a bit sorry for them! aw! theyr’e not so bad.. but what logic defying irrational economics.

They put these sh!tty elephants all over town
without our permission,
forced chincy eyesore
spamming & harassmentSO ANNOYING
& only suitable for kids.. Sotheby’s is actually
selling this junk, an insult to hard workers
earning a living everywhere
.
As an artist, shouldn’t hypocritically criticize
but we’re not allowed to spam our sh!t all over,
why should you, mundane monopolizers.

This scotch crotch (hey, i’m rhymin’ here) was lovely and brightened my evening, your’e a terrific young lass aye! play with me wee haggis! reminds me of sexy hot scotch whisky soaked ‘dates’ of mind blowing sex! whisky goes well with you know what.. on 2nd thought, stay away from that poison! poon’s problematic enough!
.. this lady was friendly to my face then behaved
really weird behind my back getting her co-worker to attack my youtube channel, claiming i followed her when she actually invades my hood & bumps into me, get outa my face! She’s probably a fine person & knows some nice mutual acquaintances i know in the post production industry but just goes to show how silly & unecessary misunderstandings are. Her expression spells trouble.. who needs it.


i drink 4 pints: 3 Hoegaardens, 1 staropramen. Cheers! We dance the night away to nostalgic tunes like “to the beat of the rhythm of the night” chico de barge, what can u do..

Gal pal Nadear hits the town bank holiday saturday, dropping my valuable books on the dirty floor. Disinfectant. Good company, tiger club doesn’t allow single men.. single women welcome anywhere =sexual inequality, discrimination & sexism!

not much socializing in the noisy club as usual, having to scream your vocal chords off to communicate, though the rooms had different audio levels & upstairs you could converse a bit. Outside you can talk but at 4 a.m. who wants to..we do, buzzed off our head.

The hottest ‘bird’ there, as they call them in england, was this italian hottie. she was quite animated so I expected some chemically induced bad attitude but typical of her culture she was wonderful and charming as ever.

A big group of chinese don’t put up with his sh!t & go up to his face yelling “what!? what!?” many times so a bobby policeman breaks up the fight. lil’ bro sees my camera, freaks out & attacks, to censor journalism that the myriad of security cameras already gotcha! fool! Good night y’all!

..which leads to trouble on another street. Beer goggles make everyone look better so i ask this group “hey guys, mind if i..” to see if the lady’s free 2 talk or at least get a shot for hollywood/ publishing agents but the cx520 camera’s become a negative. The guy threatens trouble, “if u light that camera in my face i’ll do something bad..” the wench becomes a witch.. *caw! caw!* (crows cackling)

It’s been a harsh time.. the only excercise i get is about once or twice a week in the gym when not blacking out in naps from computer overwork and chronic inertia lack of cardiovascular oxygen supply. Look forward to spending more time out actively videoing than inactively editing, but with a 3000 hour archive good luck. The only other excercise i get is chasing girls. Thank you so much ladies, if it were’nt for you i’d be even more outa shape. Quaint London town’s ideal for circulating & socializing, sure beats the bar, nightclub & treadmill. Here i am strecthing for the next wild goosechase.

Spending the week digitizing & copying some of my DAT digital audio tape archive for youtube, other sites, projects, movies. 15 years of phone conversations, original songs, private & public recordings. Without those obsolete antique museum piece dat machines, how would you record anything back when there were no portable cd or solid state recorders. And how else could you play & copy them decades later. Only a matter of time before the tape heads wear out so best hurry and verify there’s no distortion, artifacts etc. Next purchase, check specifications, panasonic doesn’t play 32khz. Hard drives are unreliable & only last 5 years so make several copies.. solid state dirves & 128gb+ usb sticks.

Protools works like a charm, not to jinx it in case i find pops & distortions everywhere. It took many hours of hell. 32khz is not supported and can only be done by analog rca phono cables because analog XLR causes distortion & digital spdif causes sampling rate word clock error noise. Obstacles, troubleshooting & technical support, thank you Paul from audiosupport.co.uk. Glad to be in central London England United Kingdom for this, imagine doing it in russia or greece, shut down from demonstrations, strikes, irregular work hours & limited, overpriced, delayed product availablity.

Met up with photographer Ritva Raitsalo to do a lil’ deal with some photos she took back in the 90s of me with german techno group Blue Anger. I was studying at school of audio engineering London and secured a keyboard playing/ programming contract from alleged alcoholic transsexual Hans Christa Mattern (hey, don’t be prejudiced, to each their own, nobody’s perfekt, sex was NOT part of the job description & who else would pay hundreds a month to create music a couple times a week? LGBT lobby take note of my tolerant, affable attitude). Wikipedia’s Transsexualism definition: an individual identifies with a physical sex that is different from their biological one. (i always thought it was an operation!). (S)he hired other students for engineering, producing, session instruments. Hans was thenicest person with a heart of gold & the most relaxed attitude ever. Everything was afun, funny joke and you felt that all is fine no matter what. You could travel a month or more & continue your job where you left off.The exhilirating life of a financially secure artist independent of industry constraints is well worth it if you can afford the gamble. Unfortunately the excessive daily Napoleon brandy destroyed his/her liver & killed her according to website http://hans_christa.tripod.com/id2.html
Funny memories/ quotes form back then:
-I asked drummer Rudi, “what do you call Hans? He or she?” he answered, “I don’t“!
-When i told my friend in greece spiros b. Hans was LGBT, he said “i’m worried you’re gonna get a bad reputation man.” Always worrying what others “think” (if you can call it that). Russel’s answer about reputation regret:” we’re beyond regret..”
-Matt?, SAE classmate sound engineer on auditioning fo the job: “are you going? she’s got money, so i’ll see you there, right?””i think he’s had the chop [surgery]”
-Matt, during rehearsal after Hans yells in a drunken tantrum, “fucking hell i need a lewel! (german accent pronounciation of audio “level”). “Hans, i’ve had just about enough of you”..

Some tape op, sound engineer & me on keyboards recording at Swanyard studios London. Hans was busy getting drunk & wasted in the next room playing pool, joking around & giving people the finger while going “bbbppppffft!”. The studio manager & staff liked Hans as a client but said they’d never seen anything like such crazy “blazé” nonchalant behavior. It was a fun, comforting experience which felt like work & play at the same time, the theme i’ve pursued ever since. Below: Me, Hans & drummer Rudi. photos: Ritva Raitsalo

MAN vs. MOUSE BATTLE
After months of rodent free peace since christmas, heard & saw the first mouse squeak of 2010 tonight. Hoping it was the window hinges squeaking in the wind, saw mickey mousey under the dishwasher gap in the wall, one of infinite construction defects these ahole architect & construction c*nts “built” & FAIL to seal. A legal loophole allows faulty construction & open cracks so mice run over the pipes. Last time pest control poisoned the hell out of them and killed them off. Most city houses are infested for decades, it’s just a matter of how often, yours too hahaha! Better call the estate agents tomorrow and repoison them again & get sticky boards etc. since there’s no humane option. Whats the point in changing adress when all homes have them & your’e never more than 20 feet away from a rodent anyway. If you know of any way to avoid this nightmare please let me know. I’m living the ultimate horror whoror.

May 1 2010 update.
It’s not so bad. I caught the mouse on a glue trap sticky board, unstuck it with baby oil without touching him/her, straight into a cut off plastic water bottle, n let it go free. There don’t seem to be any others on the glue trap sticky board- for now.

YOUTUBE CENSORSHIP ARBITRARINESS INJUSTICE VIDEO REMOVAL/STRIKE

INJUSTICE! My recent removed video “UKRANIAN PORN PG-13 soft version TRANSLATION please!” violated no guidelines or terms of service; the breasts were fully covered & blurred out, the fully clothed woman was only talking in russian, and a kiss is but a kiss. See proof of what some bigoted, prejudiced, dishonest youtube employee doesn’t want you to see! A little excitement softer than Hugh Hefner’s 1950s Playboy. Youtube allows featured promoted youtubers (shane dawson, kassemg, timmy de la gateau) google adds & revenue on explicit sexual content but not the rest of us. Isn’t that elitism, oligarchy, nepotism, monopoly? Maybe the blur box was too small & should black out more of her body.

Such arbitrary censorship violates artistic creativity & integrity restricting adults to children’s programming. Every hollywood movie, cable tv show, website & public beach has nudity but we’re not allowed to even show a COVERED BLURRED body. Hence the turning point: PG & R-rated content will have to go on your own private website and Feature Documentary/ DVD/ Published Memoirs, new niche markets.

My historic wild Yalta Simferopol tour before Ukrainian ex-“president” sex dictator Viktor Yushchenko’s 2009 “non medicinal” porn ban made adult porn possession a criminal offence punishable by a fine of 850 hryvnia ($100) or up to three years in prison, unless “for medicinal purposes”, so get your medical prescription now! “Hey doc, I can’t get hard/jerk off without it, I get depressed, sick & suicidal, it’s vital to my physical & mental health”. It’s the only sex most unfortunate, challenged or disabled people get. What a hypocrite, like he never jerked off to porn, never saw sex, yea right Viktor. Censor the entire internet. Your economy ain’t fudged enough with chernobyl mass contamination, freezing polluted radioactive black sea, lack of catalytic converters smog, now we cant even jerk off while looking at sex without getting arrested by the totalitarian opressive JACKOFF POLICE. Cancel Yucky rain, book Germany, Hungary, Czeck, Slovakia.. source: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/07/07/ukraine_bans_filth/
update: Disgruntled jerkoffs didn’t re-elect Vicky this term. Let’s see how much of a jerkoff the new guy is!
Just like china, “in my opinion” (=blogging disclaimer to avoid human rights abuses & blogger persecution) cockblocking a billion masturbators by censoring the internet & executing people for viewing/ videoing sex. Unless your’e Paris Hilton, they didn’t execute her when she visited, so it’s okay, thanks for setting the precedent. More on china’s “legal” system click link.

Translation: “her orange cat sleeps with her and sometimes scratches her. Simferopol’s the capital of Crimea yet people stay one night & leave the next day. In erotic films there are special women (fluffers) who get the men erected again to shoot a new sex scene”.

Youtube enable another video for add revenue then send me a partnership program message saying “Your account does not contain sufficient original new content that represents the uniqueness of our community. We have registered your interest and will continue to monitor your account for potential future acceptance into the program.”

The usual frustrating contradictory message, at least its not all negative, but after 100 original videos from Dubai to Hawaii, you’d think they’d have a sense of fair play “filotimo”. Other partners were handed their audience of millions for no effort at all, i’ve brought way more to the table. Esmee dentures uploaded stolen ©opyrighted song cover versions. Top youtubers just talk to the camera re-hashing the news or banal nonevents. That’s what youtube calls “sufficient original new content uniqueness”!

Sincere thanks to JohnOllie  & David Spates Laughandpeealittle, the only youtubers with clout helping me out, am reciprocating. Also delaypat & villarte & everyone for their online friendship & support.

APRIL 2010

-London spring, Green park. Lilly scented tulips bloom. People out n’ about enjoying the end of a busy, reclusive, health destroying, sleep depriving, premature ageing, winter. Before the grass pollen & allergy opticrom eyedrops &/or hay fever tablets..
-Nadine’s birthday dinner along with BJ family & friends. She was “feeling poorly” but we had a nice time anyway.

 

 

My friend the I.T guy in soho square said he’d save my seat in the sun, I go get govinda lunch for both of us, when I come back 20 min later he’s given my seat to others saying “I couldn’t stop people sitting there”.. no free benches left & I don’t want to sit on the muddy grass & pigeon shit stained pavement so I tell him “I’m not upset but that was silly, why’d you say you’d save my seat what was the point of one of us saving the other’s seat and the other getting lunch..keep it up I.t guy, this is the drama we need! Some lunatic belt headcase was semi-shouting that “england is sh*t.. and you think we [his ilk] are sh!t..” to passers by. Wonder what triggered his insanity and what meds & sideffects made it worse.. i heard the people on the next bench say: how typically english, nutters in the public square. Guess it’s better than having your free speech & human rights violated like those other mid & far east countries..
I see a hotty who doesn’t look so irresistible when she removes her sunglasses. Looks like that cannes gal.. shoulda videoed her to show ya’ll.. this is a reminder to ALWAYS VIDEO.
I video some old granpa dude flirting/ talking with a hottie. Proof BJ’s wrong about dying your hair when it goes grey. He’s doing better than all of us. There’s often some lady who doesn’t mind joining the salt n peppa club..eat your heart out george Clooney. Plus he ain’t clean cut either. What do we learn from this?

 

SHOUTOUT FAIL
If raywayjay shouts you out there’s no guarantee of anything happening. It’s good he didn’t respond to my email bids to pay for a little P.R. /promotion advertising. I’d be out hundreds if not thousands and so could you.
On 24 march 2010 ray William Johnson shouted out sawyersouthernbelle in a 3million view video. A day later they had 13 subs. I left a message saying “u got no subs from ray billy johnson’s 3 million views, how come!?” & they removed my comment & hid their sub count to hide this info from ya’ll. Anyone can see your sub count by putting you in their “other channels” box. Conclusion: don’t pay for shoutouts unless they actually say “go sub that channel” or they won’t. Box4bux
?
Not that subs guarantee views, tubemogul.com shows people with 10 times more subs than daily views..

 

 

-bookstores are better than cafes or bars for socializing. minus the liver/ brain damage, sleep deprivation, dehydration & hangovers, overcharging theft..
-my neigborhood is full of piss n’ puke. every weekend people vomit alcohol poison & undigested junk food all over the place. is it legal to puke on people’s houses & offices? good job it rains: “God”‘s shower..

At night i’m so reclusive i make miss Havisham look like a social butterfly..

GOOGLE ADSENSE YOUTUBE PARTNERSHIP Mon 23 march, 2010

A week ago Google sent me this email. The Rabid dog attack video is adsense revenue enabled but no adds or add options are on it yet- a week later.  My account’s “in good standing” but I get paranoid there’ll be some misunderstanding. “Crawled your site?” what the heck? Does that mean my eggplant surprise aubergine photoshops? good job everything’s covered up huh. It says everything adsensed must be for all ages (5 year olds). Then I see KassemG’s recent “go deep” adult pornstar interview about blowjobs and pearl necklaces monetized with adsense adds on it not to mention ray billy johnson’s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NgEmo5gWvs with adds on it too so.. the usual contradictionparadox.



AIR STUDIOS MASTERING, mon 15 mar 2010



So I go to Air Studios Mastering where they record the James Bond film orchestra soundtracks! Award winning mastering engineer Ray Staff and his colleague say the previous mastered mix’s dental drill noise is WORD CLOCK ERROR. This happens when it’s 48khz going through 44.1khz equipment..  http://www.airstudiosmastering.com/#/ray-staff/4532639950/id2.html


Ray did all kinds of fancy EQ & processing & edited accurate to 1/48,000th of a second, (48khz) so no frames were lost!

then got rid of the mastering distortion on the phased electric keyboard sounds through this spectrometer. Also trusted me to pay the next day since they were closed and gave a great discount, luckily because i’m blowing a fortune! See & hear the result on mah youtube pageola

Million Photo Memoir mastering, thurs 11 march 2010

The first episodes of this ambitious photographic slideshow include $30,000 worth of 4000 professional 50mb scans by Metro Imaging London (£4= ($8) per scan x 4000 scans=£16,000+ 17.5% vat tax = $30,000) produced & financed over 3 years. There were several setbacks. Many negative scans looked foggy and faded, 3 got lost, some had digital artifacts.. I had to verify everything & go back several times for corrections but Simon & John were most helpful.
Several hundred photos of my father’s diplomatic archive were scanned cheaper at approx. £1+ per scan by 3 Snappy Snaps domestic consumer scanner photo labs: wardour street, covent garden, hertford street. Scott at hertford street was nice at first, but his employee Tom mixed up all my photos to avoid verifcation that none were “lost” even after agreeing to keep all in order and also failed to return 60 slides & prints; his signature on the receipt proves it. Luckily I sensed a less professional vibe there and gave them old flea market stuff, not trusting them with family archives. Unsurprisingly Tom doesn’t work there anymore but just another lesson to get everything & everyone on photo/ video & receipt as proof. And DO NOT TRUST SNAPPY SNAPS HERTFORD STREET.

As curator, it’s the only way to save old vintage photos from further deterioration. The cost was so great because in 2007 London there was no other option, even Snappy Snapps wouldn’t do it cheaper until 2009. Just as hollywood blows their horn bragging about how much films cost as a promotions & marketting strategy (pubic-licity stunt) so too would this be a conversation piece increasing value Nobuyoshi Araki style.

The Million Photo soundtrack is a variety of personally created chillout lounge relaxation atmospheric, easy listening, new age film scores. Mostlty drumless, instrumental, & vocal / phone call samples including the all time classic “Up the Creek” acapellas & dance groove recorded in high school and college. It features my adoptive mom, the ambassador’s wife, verbally abusing me braying that i’ve accomplished nothing, am going nowhere and am worthless because of average grades,3rd rate’ college admissions & unpaid recording studio internships. Little did she know, she and others of her ilk would be unwitting co-stars & muses in the most ambitious multimedia art projects of their kind.

Production notes & Info:
-Audio compression rates Bunt recommends a ratio no more than 3, compared to the final cut editor who told me to squash it to 10 in soundtrack pro. Gain 5, lim-1 is ok. Threshold is what db it starts.
-1 mono signal copied to the other channel & panned remains monophonic and cancellation never completely occurs, just sucks out the bottom end. (that’s what she said).
-No explanation on why sountrack pro software causes distortion & crackle.
-Final cut pro only goes +12 db because it’s semi professional limits.
-The 2 inch rackmount compressor used by bunk junk genius studios years ago is only ideal for constant loud dance music or rock but not other music with dynamics high n lows.
-If the levels are over zero in the red but sound okay than its okay!
Protools adds noise n occasional clicking pops n artifacts if you don’t use word clock special sync.

Mistakes made & conclusions:
-Put usb stick copies of audio files in correct coat, check physically before leaving.
Bring 8 pin firewire cables for solid state drive.
-If locked to picture you cannot do audio editing cuts due to frame inaccuracy & timing. Although I line up & stack 2 recordings on top of each other in final cut and manually drag them over each other till they are in sync & proceed to edit from that although they can lag after a few seconds and have to be re aligned as I did with my olypus LS10 audio files..
-Next ‘challenge’ is the chronological order of 100s of 1000s of photos as camera clock time n dates are often incorrect inaccurtate or don’t match.. Spent many days putting the first 4000 in order in iphoto, should’ve done it before scanning. And then iphoto corrupted & crashed, I.T guy rebuilt most the library with 3rd party software, but the first 4000 remained disordered. Luckily i had ‘drag n dropped’ them from the chronological yet corrupt crashing iphoto library into fcp, but they still need more organizing for animation continuity.
-take more video & leica photo w/ micro & minitripods especially when granted permission

My I.T. colleague went to florida today with 7 friends n family and I should join them but better go fast coz theyre back in a week although there may be another trip but not all of them. spring break man!

Update: typically endless obstacles. Found out today march 12 2010 that the mastered recording has a resonant ringing noise on it absent on the original. contacted Bunt as follows:

dear Bunt, there’s a high pitched resonance ringing sound on the mastered recording which is absent on the original. It starts from the beginning synth pad and onto several other parts with synth sounds. Please remove it. I heard it when I was there and should have asked. May be travelling and will email or call you next week. thank you for your time,  Sincerely george godley.

Saturday 13 march 2010: some of his reply:

I do not think there is any “resonance or “ringing” that was not already present on the original.
I added a little eq at upper mid and very high frequencies to bring some clarity to what was, in my opinion, a rather flat and dull sounding track. Inevitably this will enhance the higher frequencies in the audio, advantageously, to my ears.
However If you would prefer the mastered version to be flat (by that I mean without any eq) I will do another version with just compression and limiting. Although all processing will to some degree colour the sound of any audio track, it will be as close to the original as is possible.
This is best achieved by using a file exchange program such as USendIt or Send Space to email me the file.

I replied “message received, thank you, will get back to you next week, sincerely.. My thoughts: The flat mix sounds much better because there is no loud sustained cricket chirping noises ruining it. The master is unlistenable, sounds like a supersonic dog whistle and a million crickets chirping in unison, a dentist’s drill. Can’t believe he can’t EQ without adding this horrible noise. Excessive noise & flat are the only 2 options he offers. He should be able to EQ mildly.. I’ll post both versions online for comparison.
other disapointments:
-one vocal is way too loud, like screaming loud, 20db louder than the other vocal sample. very unpleasant, uncomfortable, unlistenable. Even cheap finalizing software brings all levels nice and even.
-he couldnt cut the audio up without losing frames, giving 2 choices: or limited level manipulation where you can’t bring things up or down, or losing the sync to picture. Even cheap final cut software lines up your cuts evenly on top of each other so you don’t lose a frame. Clearly sadie software isn’ t up to the job or he didnt know to stack one waveform on top of the other to synchronise them even though i told him how. Actually they can stray: even in final cut, it starts accurate and after a few seconds it starts lagging and therefore maybe its not doable, which it should be at this level of professional service.
