I’ll also probably be writing a blog post on Michael Weiss’ show, which I went to see yesterday, and indeed nearly made the newscast, it was only when Speedy and van der Porny showed up at the last minute that it got bumped out. So everything else that happened this week: September 3-9, 2012

And I am getting madder and madder at IceNetwork. First finding they have no ability to be streamed on an iPad, so I couldn’t watch most of the shorts in Lake Placid, then when I got home from New York and could stream them, found there was too much freezing, crashing, and sound issues for a service that has cut what it has available so drastically without lowering their prices. Things don’t improve before the end of the season and I may try to cancel even with things being the way they are in skating.
And then I must decide whether or not I will let IceNetwork renew my subscription even though we’re now getting a lot less thanks to Universal Sports holding Grand Prix coverage hostage to their wish to be added to more providers. I’ll probably give in, though, if only because the events still being covered are the ones I’ll be home to watch more of. Not to mention doing this I need all the resources I can get: July 30-August 5, 2012
I actually had a doctor’s appointment yesterday, which meant I didn’t finish the video until very late at night. In fact, I haven’t even done the annotations yet; that should be done after I post this. ETA: Annotations done.
Once again the video initially failed to convert, and when I had decided to risk using footage from last night’s Battle of the Blades premiere, and another Yu-Na Kim vid while I was at it. But at least neither got the video blocked, and I can do tags for this during the commercial breaks for Dancing With the Stars.
And apparently I am now allowed to upload videos to YouTube that are longer than 15 minutes, but honestly? This is taking enough out of me; if I tried to do longer I’d go crazy.
Today was actually a pretty exciting day for real life related reasons, which also meant I began editing this video two hours late. Which meant by the time I finished one of my news sections was obsolete! But there’s a point, especially after I’ve edited together the final voice track, where I consider things locked already, especially when it comes to official announcements very much made on Monday, outside the window of the week’s coverage. Meanwhile, I actually tried to use a clip of Yu-Na SBS hadn’t blocked in the past, but either it wasn’t entire safe or they objected to another clip, so this one’s blocked in Korea and Japan again.
Once again I escape SBSi, but when All That Skate is next week, I shall have to attempt to be careful. Also apologies for my voice getting dicey at a couple of points; the sinuses were not good these weekend.
