Bad news

Hey guys, I'll be posting a video on my youtube channels tomorrow as well explaining this but I pretty much am having to stop uploading my videos.  I'll be closing my youtube accounts down next Monday so every entry on this journal that deals with youtube will be deleted as well.  My mom pretty much said that due to the recent increase of danger due to copyright and the fact that they have passed a new bill about it, she figured it was better that I went ahead and stopped before it was too late to get out of it.  She said it's too dangerous and that she didn't want any repercussions in the future.  Apparently music and video uploads/downloads are going to be hit the hardest.  I hate doing this but I don't have any choice.  If my mom says something I have to listen to her so sorry.  I know a lot of you on my friends list enjoyed my Fma videos.

There went another hobby of mine right down the drain.  T_T  I'm really depressed at the moment.  Looks like I might go back to drawing and writing like I use too...wish I'd never gotten into amvs now.  It hurts so bad when you've been working on something for years and then be told that I should stop.  At least I can still make them, just can't post them.  :(

IF there are any videos on my youtube accounts that you'd like to keep make sure you download them now by a program or site like this one:


I'm so sorry No-Chicks for not getting that video done for you.  I've had a lot of lack of inspiration for editing lately and I never was able to get around to it because of that.  I didn't want to work on it when I didn't have inspiration as my editing isn't as good but now it doesn't seem like I'll be able to post it after all.  Maybe I can still make it but burn it on cd and mail it to you as my mom really doesn't even want me  to message the videos around anymore.  She's very worried over all of this.  


Information about the recent bill about copyright was posted on CNN a few days ago.  Research it on yahoo/google if you want too.

Well that sucks ... I admit I am not big into AMV's but I am sure you can still do your own still and when you have a safe place to upload them still do them. I mean people still enter AMV awards at cons so yeah, has to be an ok somewhere.

Yeah I know copyright this and that is a pain ... hence I only post my fics here on LJ because well its just a hobby and I don't care to fight with AFF or FF.net.

Thoe sites are no different then lj... you tend to have to post disclaimers on all 3...
Dec. 27th, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
Right I know about the disclaimer point but I only write for fun and for my LJ, not to get "popular" as alot of people don't even read my stuff anyways.

People read fics because they like the pairing, its a great fic or just want PWP.

Its a challenge for me only to see what plots I can come up with the given characters. And I don't need the extra headaches and BS that goes with those sites as binary came into so much headaches with.

So yeah its on my LJ only linked only to other LJ FMA related sites and totally just for fun. People take that shit too seriously and it should be fun, when it ceases to be then move on.

I know but all 3 sites are the same, except the blogging part on lj. And it's not really all that much extra work on ff.net or aff.net, if anything sometimes lj is more worse then them with how people say it must be one way or the other >< And for ff.net and aff.net, it's not about being popular there on there, it's just about posting fic really. though for me all 3 can be a headach at times >

True but I don't even update my DW so I'll never update on the other sites so yeah 1 place is fine with me. Besides LJ is where all the real me is places like FB shit you'll never find out anything about the real me on there, lol! That is the completely FAKE me ...
Dec. 28th, 2010 02:53 pm (UTC)
I have to look into another place to upload them. I didn't really even consider it. :3 Don't know until I ask though. She might still consider to dangerous. Sigh...I can't keep it a secret either due to the fact that I have a big mouth. -_-;

I think I will try the cons though. :) I've always wanted to anyway!

Aw, don't worry about it, sweetie. I'm touched that you even thought to do that for me, that's present enough. <3 *hugs*

Have you ever thought about posting your work to animemusicvideos dot org? They don't seem to have nearly the issue that YouTube does and they've been around for awhile. YouTube is popular and therefore, much more targeted by companies. I mean yes, there are legal issues with all fanworks- fanfiction and fanart is just as illegal as AMVs. But anime conventions still have AMV contests, right? No one is suing them. I just hate to think that you feel like you can't do something you enjoy. :(

I'm kinda scared to post on animemusicvideos. xD They have some serious editors on there and I've heard that they love to give some pretty intense critique. I heard one person posted and ended up crying. I doubt I'd cry but that sounds kinda scary to me. ^^; Not sure if I should try or not. I think I'll still try for the amv contests at the conventions though, I just can't post on youtube anymore. :(

I can send you your video through megaupload or sendspace now that my mom has said that it's okay... thankfully. I was considering throwing Kuro into it too since it's also shonen ai. :D

I would love if you could do that for me, if it's not too much trouble. It means a lot to me that you made it and I don't want to lose it.

I never knew about the whole critique thing over there. Jeez, can't people just enjoy doing what they love without having others rip it apart? Nonsense. *shakes head*

You know, you could also make your own website. I just think it's such a shame to lose all your hard work! :(
Dec. 28th, 2010 02:27 am (UTC)
Whaaaat?!? Aw man. I really liked your videos too. (dl'd most of 'em too! ^_^) I gotta second what nochick_fics said. There has to be some place you can still upload your vids to. I'd hate for you to give up something that means so much to you. :(

I'll have to see about amv.org like she suggested. I'm not sure. Part of why I'm upset is not just uploading but I have a studio on youtube that I started and I can't even participate in it now so it's pretty upsetting.

I was always happy to see your comments. I'm glad you liked them! :) I had a new Fma yaoi video I was working on... This really sucks.. D:
Dec. 29th, 2010 12:34 am (UTC)
Oh yeah! I remember you had posted a piece of one you were working on! I can't remember what it was called but I'm almost positive it's in my favorites over at YouTube. :) If you just so happen to finish it and would be so inclined to share said finished video with me I promise not to tell anyone! ^_^

Well it wasn't the Hot Mess video but a new one since Hot Mess is taking forever to do. D: Too much masking. lol

This is an idea video again to Living Will and Precious Wonders so it's kinda like HeiEd & AlEd in one video and the squabbles between the two Al's since both seemed to be angry because Ed didn't want to be with either of them the way they wanted to (Hei because of him looking like his brother & Al because he is his brother) and of course they both automatically assumed it was because of the other Al. It was working rather nicely as a 3 way.

I might have a solution after all. My co leader for my studio I started has offered to create a new channel and upload any new videos of mine on there so my work will continue to be posted. He said that he wasn't going to let my videos quit just yet because of something like this. lol Said he liked my work too much so I'm happier now. Only thing I feel embarrassed about is asking him to post one of my fma yaoi videos. lol
