Fair Use


Youtube Country Blocking and Complete Take-down Notices

Yes it is worth disputing.  Sometimes just filing the initial dispute will resolve it. Here is a great write up of a vidder who went the entire distance. Even if you want to only fill out the initial paperwork, it will help.
In the meantime, here's what you do
1. Create an AO3 account. You will use this to embed your vids and link to it in your vids posts.  This is where people will leave you comments and feedback...that way, if your vid is taken down,  you only need to update the new in one location (your AO3 post). And your comments and kudos won't get deleted.
2. Host your vid in two locations  - vimeo or vidders.net can be one. The other should be Critical Commons. I'd embed Vimeo/Vidders.net and add Critical Commons  as a link to any vids post. If the vid is blocked in only a few countries, add a link to your AO3 placeholder in the notes section (If your vid is blocked in X and Y country, head over here for alternatives). Critical Commons info: http://www.transformativeworks.org/critical-commons/
3. Touch bases with Vidders.net about backing up your entire YouTube channel - including comments.


Blocked YouTube vid

Hello, I've just discovered that one of my vids has been blocked on YT because of the music. I don't vid very often and this vid is two years old, but I guess I woke a dragon.

Still, it's a bit gutting. I'm not sure what to do now - is there somewhere else I can post it? Should I bother to dispute it? Start a Tumblr/Vimeo account? idk

A Fine Arts video - Illustrations of Adoration of the Magi done to "O Magnum Mysterium"

I'm still experimenting. What I want to do is an art series and it occurred to me you might find this interesting, as well. The music is a similar arrangement to one that I sung in high school choir, this one sung by The Boys of St Paul's Choir School, so it hits a deep memory for me. What I found interesting in making it was that you lose all impact if you try to show entire paintings, and this sort of thing seems to be most effective when you concentrate on closeups.

With best wishes to all for a wonderful New Year. Mary

Master of Mayhem || Blood Frive

Fandom: Blood Drive
Characters: Julian Slink
Song: Longren - Why?
Vidder: Longren

Primeval - Sarah happy place


"Him and I" (Lucas/Skye | Lucket, Terra Nova)

Song: "Him and I" by G-Eazy and Halsey
Characters/Fandom: Lucas/Skye, Terra Nova
Spoilers/warnings: None
Length/size: 1:07 (62 MB WMV)

V/N: This feels almost like a contrast piece to my previous Lucket vid, "Savin' Me," where instead of Skye leading Lucas into being good, in this one she follows him into being bad. ;) I'll always love the "what-if's" with these two, what can I say? ;)

And yes, I did completely edit G-Eazy out of his own song. Sorry? ;)

If you watch, I hope you enjoy! :D

"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" for Ice Age

"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" for Ice Age

It didn't say on the Christmas album who the artist was.

There are 75 Christmas videos currently on the site, in the Christmas playlist:

There are videos of me being interviewed by Bryant Gumbel and other videos from my work with a Vassar professor proving Henry Livingston wrote Night Before Christmas and not Clement Moore on the Henry Livingston playlist:


But literary analysis, while it can be convincing, doesn't prove the case. So I worked with a New Zealand emeritus professor to PROVE the case with statistical analysis of where your tongue moves in your mouth when reciting the poetry of Livingston and Moore aloud. The statistics PROVE Moore couldn't have written NBC, while Livingston could. Jackson put out his book last year and I put out 3, translating academic peer-speak into English.

I've been sloppy about putting up videos to download on my site because few people seem to download any more. Videos that are blocked on YouTube are on the site for downloading. If there's anything you want downloaded that isn't there, let me know. Click to appropriate fandom to get download. Best, Mary

See this lovely vid on AO3.
