Lame, Lame, Lame, Shit.

So now my video got demonetized, like what the hell? A ย song I wrote for the victims of all of this extreme weather? I say that we should leave our political differences behind and come together to help the victims? I say that it is nice to see all of these people who are different coming together helping each other and that this is the best of America? Hello? Ridiculous. Beyond annoying too. I’ve never experienced anything like this. Defamation that is exactly what it is. Pricks.

HERESY!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don’t need religious fanatics in order to hear the shouts of “heresy! heresy! heresy!” I predicted in 2007 that Social Media would be used to sniff out and silence dissenters. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/16/london-mayor-to-set-up-police-online-hate-crime-hub-in-partnership-with-social-media-firms/

Yeeha! Behold the new STASI recruiting tool! Are google stalking my blog for great ideas? Hmm…get rewarded for being a snitch folks! Come on! You know you want to unlock the super tools of YouTube! Why am I always so right in predicting the worse when it comes to human behaviour. I do wonder.

“Censorship in the form of financial castration.” Just quoting one of the comments on this very worrying article about YouTube’s demonetization. Read this and cry. http://theconcordian.com/2016/09/youtubes-monetization-policy-is-anti-free-speech/

Oh….I seem to remember that I posted this not that long ago…ย The New STASI app, sorry FB.

If you are to be crucified for posting silliness on your own personal FB, isn’t that the same as being persecuted for writing BS on your own front door or setting up a sign in your garden, that can be potentially offensive to people who walk by your property? Is it right to get into trouble for writing potentially offensive thoughts in a diary, or to reveal controversial view points in private letters? Why would it be ok to receive criminal charges for saying whatever you feel like saying on a private account on a social media site? http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/09/17/german-govt-hires-ex-stasi-agent-patrol-facebook-xenophobic-comments/

Fabulously written by a Norwegian artist friend of mine. It is about political correctness in Norway and Norwegians losing their jobs when they challenge the current orthodoxy. http://hankvonhell.blogg.no/1474927811_trenger_vi_kafkaprose.html

Which made me think of what I wrote lately:ย Animal Farm.

Think about this: People have voluntarily provided sensitive, personal information to the worlds largest “people-register” of all times. A people register that is global. That has all your personal conversations, everything that you have ever “liked”, any photo of you and your relatives and friends. And the best of all is that…. nobody had to force you to give up all of that information. Splendid.

The Return Of My Video-Blog.

Yes, you read that right. A while back my brother suggested that I should get myself a video blog, so off I went and made a couple of episodes, thinking to myself that it would be very easy.

People liked the blogs, but I was amazed at how time-consuming it actually was, so the video blog idea was abandoned for a while. However after blogging here on wordpress since last year, I felt like it would be cool to start vlogging again. This time I’ll commit myself to one episode pr.month and I’ll let my subscribers run the show a bit, by letting their questions etc, decide what the next episode should be about.

I will prefer if the blogs don’t contain live music, as it takes time to actually sync a recording with your fingers if you record it properly. It took me quite some attempts to shoot my latest video actually, as I first shot it with webcam, and my manager hated that my bed was visible behind me ( also there was some strange sync-issues going on with the sound :/), so then I shot it a second time in another room, but the lighting was horrible and half my head was missing ๐Ÿ˜› Then I shot it a last time, thinking to myself, ok…how hard can this really be?

Now after uploading my “songwriting” blog I realise that the acoustics make the room “unsuitable” for vlogs/talking unless I get a microphone ๐Ÿ˜› So much for that!

You can still hear what I’m saying though, so please check out my songwriting blog and feel free to come with suggestions in the comment section for what my next episode should be about :):)

 

Working & Relaxing at a Cotswolds Estate.

I’ve been shooting some new vids for my YouTube Channel including a music video for my upcoming album ๐Ÿ™‚ This is not a bad place to hang out! So gorgeous! This year I had the great privilege of borrowing an apartment right on Central Park in NY, being a guest over at Aker Brygge, Oslo swimming in a heated pool on the roof and now I’ve been a guest at a proper British Cotswold Estate. Not bad. Not bad. Savouring every good moment!!!!! Rock’n’Roll \m/

Let me make you worried…. and happy.

Today’s articles that have caught my attention + some other stuff.

I don’t know which sites you (the reader) follow on FB, but some of the ones I have liked have a tendency to post some of the same stories over and over.

An article that keeps on popping up in my feed is this one:ย People Sabotaging your life :/

Whenever I see this I start to ask myself if I could know any people like the ones mentioned in the article, so if you are a “worrier” don’t read it…

But if you did read the article above and now feel slightly stressed….you can now read this as a remedy: ย 8 ways to cope with anxiety

I have no idea why I clicked on the link that took me to this article…curiosity perhaps? I have to say…I still haven’t seen the tear-jerker that was unleashed upon the inter webs today….but I bet it’s epic!ย Grumpy looking British Rock Star

I was waiting for a while to check this article out, but whenever my siblings have seen that there was something about this guy on my computer they’ve gone crazy. I didn’t know who this was to be honest until I read the article, but cool story and charismatic looking guy.ย Happy Looking YouTube Millionaire

Speaking of kids having the same relationship to YouTube that people my age had to KidsTv & Mtv…when Mtv had music videos “cough, cough”… my youngest brother introduced me to this show yesterday…not quite sure what I think…he loves it though…

Came across a news story on the Beatles and just had to go and listen to this awesome track:

So so so so so cool. Awesome track. One of my favourite songs ever.

Which makes me think that…hmm…I’ve been listening to too much trendy pop music lately ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

If you have ever wondered why Dogs tilt their heads go here:ย Cute Dog ๐Ÿ™‚

And if you actually feel like reading a happy news story……lo and behold I actually found one ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Incredible ๐Ÿ˜€ย A News Story With A Happy Ending

Goodnight \m/
