The “Pivotal Experiment” In Forest Hills(In Queens, NY)

10 Feb

From an Artistic Perspective, NBC Sports did a nice Historical Interpretation of Russia and Russians. An older woman was seen attempting the Sign of The Cross, made with 3 Fingers, sadly not completed.
In reality, the Tsars¬† are the ones who expanded Russia’s Empire. Everything was in place when the USSR(Soviet Union) became the Name of The Russian Empire. It was a brutal place. Seeing a Two Headed Eagle Icon, showed that Freemasonry was there as well. Artists are well represented in this opening.
But, NBC Sports left itself out to rather severe criticism for emphasising the Soviet Union as a “Pivotal Experiment”, leaving out the Starvation of Ukraine as part of that “Experiment.” For whenever I am at the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom at either St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church or Holy Cross Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, both Parishes in Full Communion with The Holy See(The Vatican), I am exhorted to pray for Ukraine(The Ukraine sounds like The Bronx, in a Manner of Speaking). They suffered Horrifically in this “Pivotal Experiment.”
Hence, NBC Sports is in dire need of a “Snark Piece” in their honor. They deserve it. Canadian Curmudgeon Rex Murphy would know how to cut thus bunch “A New One”, by his utterances, so well nuanced.

It was in 2011, in this time 3 Years Ago, when in the World of “Pivotal Experiments”, that expanding Video Coverage of the Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championships beyond that “Overrated Steaming Pile of Goat Manure” called You Tube, which was not in my plans to carry any coverage there after a preliminary upload landed on an Online Betting Site. But, when certain contestants are Allies of The Powers That Be, one is forced to head to You Tube, a kind of Sedative, to keep ” I Prime Donne” from barfing at Continental Avenue and Austin Street, while wailing feverishly that you ruined their chance to “Be Like Bieber.”¬† Ditto goes for their Parents, classified as “Stage Parents” & “Soccer Moms From Hell”, who are often worse than their Spawn. If their Spawn want to “Be Like Bieber”, expect to pay $300 an Hour in fees to a Barrister.

“Athletic Competition brings out a fierce spirit. There are Winners and Losers. And there is Video Sharing.”
“It used to be on Videotape. Now it is Digital Images. It is an obsession with View #s. It is ‘Be Like Bieber’ Time.”

“It isn’t the Photo in the local newspaper. It isn’t Public Access Cable TV. It is Worldwide. It is obsession with Fame.”

“Some dictate where they will appear & don’t attain Fame. They appear elsewhere with huge view #s, but it doesn’t count because it wasn’t where they dictated.”

“The Assorted ‘Fame Seeking Parents From Hell’ are Worse than Their Spawn, as they live vicariously through their Spawn.”

“Producers Clash with People who have neither the technical nor statistical knowledge. Producers align, not by Feelings, but with Faith, Reason & Thought of a Sparkling Production. They, too, seek Artistic Recognition.”

“Just because Mc Donald’s is big, does it mean it’s good? There are OTHER Options and Tastes.”

“There is Passion. That is what drives Artists. What do Artists have in Common with Athletes? That Very Passion to do WHAT We Do.”

“East is East and West is West and more often, They Clash.”


Beyond You Tube-You Can Run Your Own Networks (Live, Of Course & Free)

29 Jan

You Tube is, supposedly,The Place to get noticed. In reality, if you have the cash for purchasing You Tube Views via View Gathering Services, then by all means, go there.

They also have their own Live Service. But, that is for Actual Broadcast Professionals like The Bands and Broadcast Networks, so if you want to do your Local 9/11 Coverage, then You Tube is not really the place for it.

I still have Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage on The World’s 2nd Largest Video Site, Dailymotion. By going there, people are still viewing it. The HD 720p Coverage, which gained a spot on RTL. be in Belgium in 2011, is still being viewed. It stands Alone on that Service.

But, this is a Different Era. Local Events like this NEED to go Live, instead of to You Tube Oblivion. There is coverage which is about 6 Years Old. This is Vintage Stuff. That Contestant may be in secondary school or University. Video can age and Be Forgotten. It is News, which needs to be Fresh.

Live, Like on a Live Web Broadcasting Service is the way to go. And you can do it from your Mobile Phone. And, like You Tube, You can do it for Free.


Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Is Stale On You Tube

29 Jan

Amazing! No Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage is being uploaded to You Tube. This is truly Amazing.

It was a Rite Of Passage to upload a Council or District Competition to that Steaming Pile of Goat Custard. But, it looks like there is no interest in going on to You Tube. There is coverage that is 6 Years Old up there.

No Council Coverage has invaded Dailymotion. That tends to be Home to coverage I produced in 2011.  Something tells me that overall coverage peaked when my production of Round 2 appeared on RTL.be website.3302 Views of Dailymotion Coverage over 3 Years and still growing.

Maybe Live on one of the Live Web Broadcast Services may be the way to go.

You Tube is so “2005.”


On Bambuser I Viewed Coverage Of Ukraine Protests

24 Jan

I also viewed the same on Ustream.tv. Live Video Streaming is the way to go. Anyone can be a Broadcaster. One can just pull out a Smartphone and carry everything live over a service and go simulcast on Facebook.

Back at the time of Public Access on Manhattan Cable Television(Now Time Warner Cable), the only networking was via linkup on TeLePromTer north of East and West 59th Streets. That northern franchise is now Time Warner Cable. Then again, there was no such thing as Vimeo(Older Than You Tube and based on the West Side of Manhattan).

There was a time when only “Six Blue Haired Biddies”(Very Funny, Lenny, Very Funny) might watch your show. Now there is Live Programming via Smartphone Apps.

No Cable TV and “No Big 3 Networks” to hold you back. More people are watching Live Streams and Videos than are watching Network Television.

No Antennas/No Wires!


To The Young, Social Media Savvy Pro Lifers

If You have Videos on You Tube, Vimeo or Dailymotion, send them via link to Tumblr, which goes for a Young Crowd. Do more than Facebook and Twitter. Pin them on Pinterest. And do the Google+ Link as well.

Get Attention!

YOU Are The Media. Never Mind Chris Matthews!”


La Boheme Sing A Long & Rehearsal

13 Jan


A Day At The “La Boheme” Opera & Sing A Long & Rehearsal

13 Jan

It was a day of Live Telecast History. People were & still are watching.
Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church in Forest Hills, NY, is something of an Artistic Center. That was the usual function of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs at Ascan Avenue & Queens Blvd with their Christmas & Spring Concerts. For Mercy was the Suffragen Parish, while Martyrs was “The Show.” But that has changed in the last several months, since the Arrival of Maestro Joe Martin from Woodhaven, Queens.
Helen Van Tine-Golden, a long time Mercy Parishioner, who still says BMT, IRT & Independent, as in Subway Lines, heads the Golden Rose Opera Company &, like me, is a Native of Brooklyn, NY. It is through Helen & Joe Martin, that I received permission to Live Web-Telecast the “La Boheme Sing A Long & Rehearsal on Veetle.com.

The Mainline Telecast is 2Hours & 16Minutes. People are watching. I worked from a # of different broadcast angles. Let me say that even with a bad neck, it was comfortable to work this Telecast on the web.
Now it is time to send all the Promotional emails to the cast. That will grow the audience.

Doing this is an experience, in that it was all done on an Android Smartphone & Veetle App. It sure beats lugging around Heavy Equipment. 2014 is not 2000.
