No More “Age Verification” Free Video Embedding…

….

Date: March 23, 2017

I’ve stopped using the embedding code, that sidesteps the YouTube age verification.

Potentially, you’ve noticed that a lot of the embedded videos from YouTube are all giving a playback error?

For years, I’ve used the embedding code that is supposed to let anyone watch a video outright, without worrying about logging into YouTube to verify their age…This was done as a courtesy to my visitors.

As always…YouTube has recently made changes to their website…and from the looks of it, they’ve disabled this method of embedding…whether intentional, or not.

This means for me, that I have already dropped the usage of it…To be honest, it was annoying having to deal with a few things about it, anyway…I’m glad to be done with it.

But, now a ton of embedded videos won’t play on this blog…Fortunately, this is why I’ve always included a direct link to the YouTube video page…So, there should be no real issue…Just click on the link…Watch it on YouTube.

All the best…

002) Diamond Raw: One Year YouTube Anniversary…

……
….

Diamond Raw: 002 June 21, 2011

Title: 002) One Year YouTube Anniversary

Notes: Approximate original release date: February 20, 2009

One year anniversary on YouTube…The economy…YouTube…Looking back over the past year…I’m a communicator…What I’d hoped for…What I’ve been doing, so far…Acknowledging my individual video/audio projects…Legal insanity…Censorship extremists…The United Kingdom…”Indecent”…Tom O’Carroll…The significance of the “indecent” ideology, as a legal precedent….How big of a leap is it?…

YouTube knifed me in the back, shortly following the upload of this. Actually, this is one of my recordings from the series entitled, “The EQF Public Podium”…something I was using for announcements, for my website.

Yes…I managed to screw up on Tom O’Carroll’s name…and felt really dumb over it…[Sorry, Tom!].

003) Diamond Raw: Words Definitions And Those Who Control Them…


……
….

Diamond Raw: 003 March 03, 2009

Title: 003) Words Definitions And Those Who Control Them

Notes: This is a brief chat dealing with one of our most pressing hurdles, as child lovers…our ability to effectively communicate with others, being impeded upon, by the strong armed tactics of language manipulation.

This has been one of the primary weapons of culture war, and social control, throughout all of human history.

If you control the words and what people believe they mean…then you control how others will tend to think about an issue, or a minority. Minorities are often crippled by this tactic.

…and, this is a vast reason, as to why child lovers are kept down, today. We have been victims of political manipulation.

000) Diamond Raw: The Preface…

……
….

Diamond Raw: 000 November 26, 2008

Title: 000) The Preface

Notes: “The Preface” was really recorded for the purpose of introducing all of my media projects [including videos, originally made for YouTube], and acting as a disclaimer of sorts. It consists of two separate recordings, a bit of repeating…and is sloppy…I meander somewhat…

As time goes by, you will no doubt notice that I have a tendency to meander, and even stumble over words, sometimes…This is largely do to health issues I have to live with, day in and day out…It often leaves me with a foggy memory…and I sometimes find myself in the middle of saying something, when I completely forget what I was about to say…or even what I was talking about.

This has been incredibly frustrating for me…and it’s been one of the primary reasons, why I’ve [previously] never gone forward with a regular podcast. Originally, when I started doing recordings several years back, things weren’t this bad…but, they’ve devolved a lot, over the past few years.

It’s becoming impossible for me to put out a professional, well polished end product, when I lack the where with all to do it…So by this stage in the game I said, “Screw it!…I’m just going to talk, record it, put it out there…and to hell with anybody, who is so shallow as to point out and pick on the obvious shortcomings”…

…The soul of this project, is communication of human thoughts, needs, ideas, criticisms, solutions…and the like.

My apologies if I come off sounding annoying…but, some recordings are much better than others…Some might be worse. I’ll just have to bite the bullet of criticism, if it comes my way…So be it.

One other thing…

…At various points in my recordings, I was going through some very bleak, extremely stressful, deep depression phases…and even a viral infection makes it into several recordings [It actually stopped me, for several days]…The abyss I was staring into as I spoke, was very black…and this will, no doubt, come through on some of the recordings to follow…

In some instances, I really, really needed someone to talk to…but, I had nobody…so, this was a surrogate, of sorts.

Again…this is a human project, and I hide nothing in it, or from it…

While I hope this does not alter anybody’s opinions of me for the worse…I at least hope people can come to respect my naked honesty.

Much of this is not of an “activist” flavor…while some of it might be considered such…

I hope you appreciate it for what it is, and can take something valuable away from it.

001) Diamond Raw: Elections Tomorrow…

……

Diamond Raw: 001 November 4, 2008

Title: 001) Elections Tomorrow

Notes: This is the very first installment of “Diamond Raw”. It originally got mixed into a video file and uploaded to YouTube. It had to be appended to a video file, in order to distribute it via YouTube, you see.

This was being recorded the night before the 2008 U.S. presidential election…and I give both my thoughts, and a prediction…which turns out correct.

Yes…I do think very badly of politicians…
