"Everyone dies. It is the final and only ever lasting justice. Evil exists; it is intelligence in the service of entropy. When the side of a mountain slides to kill a village, this is not evil, for evil requires intent. Should a sentient being cause that landslide, there is evil; and requires justice as a consequence, so that civilization can exist. There is no greater good than justice; and only if law serves justice is it a good law. It is said correctly that law exists not for the just but for the unjust, for the just carry the law in their hearts, and do not need to call it from afar. I bow to no one and give service only for cause."

Happy anniversary! Today marks year number 11 since you first became a Sifter and the community is better for having you. Thanks for your contributions!

A lot of the newer videos seem to be moving away from Youtube, over to things like instagram and twitter. Sadly VS doesn't support either of those as embeds, so I have to look around on what it does support. That means my pool is limited to stuff like YT, Dailymotion, and Facebook.

I'm trying to post stuff that everyone can see, but it can be hard. I'm not upset at you, I would be in rant mode myself if the majority of videos were not showing up for me. Maybe you can post and see if one of site designers can update the code to support more embeds like Instagram and Twitter (and liveleak again, something broke when they changed their site)?

Anyway, hopefully I can get stuff up you can watch. I am always looking now to see if one of the videos I post has a sister video on YT, that way it has a better shot of being visible.

Hey, Sorry if I seem frustrated lately about videos not working - It's just mainly that I really am getting frustrated. I'm getting almost half of all videos that are unviewable - either because of Facebook embeds, or region blocked.

I used to be able to come to the SIFT and get all my video views and see lots of new videos and keep up with current world activites etc.
But lately every SNL, Conan, Late Night Tonight, Tonight Show videos, are all region blocked.
The overall quality of videos here have gone down, are we running out of videos?
Anyway, with 50% of the videos not working, and the 30% being junk, it's not leaving much and I find this is becoming a dead site for me. The problem is I really like this site, and I don't want to go elsewhere. I find myself, just surfing youtube now, but getting to the good stuff takes time, and I don't always have that time.

anyway - sorry to rant, just wanted to apologize if I've seemed argumentative as of late. Have a great weekend!!!

That's very cool It took me a bit of exposure to get into Jazz, and I'll credit @Ornthoron and the videosift jazz channel for providing most of that exposure.

It's a shame there weren't any other Jazz fans around while the promote was running... that's really some performance.

Sagemind said:

Thank you sir, for the Promote.

My son is a 17 year old jazz player (Trombone) and he's really turned me on to Jazz. More than the casual listener I was before.
He's heading to University of Toronto in a few months with a focus on Jazz. (I need to fly him there for auditions entrance in February).
He performs 2-3 times a week with various combos in town so I get to see a lot of jazz lately.
Cheers!

maybe ask in sift talk or @lucky760, it has to be something related to facebook embeds because I've been using a lot of them.

Out of all your videos you've posted in the last couple days, I can't see any of them. I've tried on two different computers. Just a wall of blank grey space.

Thought I'd let you know here, rather than spam all your posts.
