  • My Knowledge Videos

    Konnichi Wa to All:

    I am posting a list of all the science, knowledge, and history videos I have on tape. Since I got a VCR in 1995, I took up the hobby of recording preserving programs from the TV that have good historical, or scientific knowledge that I could use and memorize. At the time, I had pirated cable, and wanted to record as many cable programs before getting cut off (which I am now able to afford, and not have totally above board cable). I wanted those interesting programs to watch when I had not cable. Since recording the following library of videos, I have watched each program at least 5 to 10 times each. In some cases, I have watched the program over 20 times. So when one is discussing a topic on which the following videos are based, I do know all of the information on that subject covered in that particular program. I basically concider myself a video based history scholar. With each title follows a brief discription of what the program covers.

    And this Library of Knowledge Video does come in handy to watch when I do not want to watch any regular TV, such as today on September 11th.

    On September 11th, I tend to not like watching the Media Hype and BS about the WTC when it is starting to look like the Americans may have done it to themselves in order to get an excuse to go to War.

    Right now, I am watching my History Program on the Black Dahlia.

              I took up the hobby of recording preserving programs from the TV that have good historical, or scientific knowledge
              have not done much video tape work since I got this computer on line. I guess I will have to put aside a day to edit those 6 or 8 remaining programs.

              So if you want to consult someone who knows about any of the above programs, do not hessitate to let me know.

              Wow that is a long time to type.
              I remember some of those programs too, good stuff. But Ki No Ronin I noticed you mentioned "edit" programs, so are you saying that these are not bought programs? You say you are preserving them? Well seeing that alot of those are from the HC or A&E, or CBC then I can say that they are preserved well enough already

              The MysticWicks Library This library contains text which are available in full length under copyright laws. if you find anything here that should not be here, please contact an administrator. However, all texts are researched to make sure we are in compliance with copyright laws
              Another thing I wanted to point out in the above quote it mentions that this is a Library for text, so I am not sure if even what you have presented here would be useful or not.

                I recorded the programs in whole, and then later editted out the Commercials.

                Actually, I blew a few guys minds at the Swimming Pool when we got to discussing the Historys of England, Titanic, and the HMS Victory.

                They were impressed at how I was able to recount exact numbers of how many Men were wounded at Trafalgar and how the Shoes and Boots of Drowned Victims of Titanic mark the spots where the Victims came down to rest after sinking all that distance.

                  I should mention that in the last year, I did record a New Knowledge Video, which is called "The Salmon Forest".

                  I found out about it when one of my Streamkeeping Buddies sent a round trip Email to all members that a Episode of David Suzuki's Nature of Things called "The Salmon Forest".

                  It is a Chronical of how important it is for the Trees of the Pacific Northwest's Forests to have their Salmon Runs.

                  It basically Chronicals how they did some Science Experiments on the Wood of the Trees and found that the Nitrogen Complex in the Trees surrounding a Salmon Stream is Very High in the Nitrogen Complex Molecule that is the Most Common Nitrogen Molecule that comes from Salmon Fish.

                  They also did some Examinations of Trees in areas that had Lost their Salmon Runs and found that those Trees were Not As Healthy.

                  So the Conclusion of the Documentary states that Trees that grow with Salmon Body Carcasses supplying them with the Natural Nitrogen tend to become Dependent on that supplying of Nutrients and if the Trees loose that Source of Nutrition, then those Trees become Weaker and Unhealthy.

                    Also, in December 2005, I recorded off of the TV the Three Part Series called "Guns. Germs, and Steel". It is the Docuseries about the Book written by Jarad Diamond.

                    It Chronicals how Mankind managed to Harness the Natural Processes of Nature in order to become one of the Most Influential Creature on the Earth.

                    It also shows how Abusive Agriculture Practises can turn Previously Fertile Lands into Barren Deserts.

                    It was from this Docuseries that I learned how Mankind Discovered and Harnessed Farming of Wheat in the Fertile Crescent that Sparked Off the Organized Civilizations that we have around us today.

                    I actually did a Rewriting of my SLM Essay based on Information that I discovered from this Program.

                      A question for you

                      I'm curious as to why you would think that your "knowledge" videos should be mentioned here, where people are consulting the Mystic Wicks Library?

                      The library consists of complete texts of scholarly works that can be read directly from the file, right here at the library site.

                      On the other hand, you videotaped PBS and Knowledge Network TV shows and watched them, and now you are what? Offering to tell people about them? Do you just want an opportunity to show off how much you remember after watching some of these "20 times?"

                      To be of any use as a library, you would have to offer to lend out your videotapes. As you have so carefully listed all the titles, I assume you are willing to do that? How does one go about borrowing one of them from you?

                        In general, this portion of the MW Library is a generalized sub forum for discussion or other information a party may wish to share. When opening the MW Libary forum the actual text threads are located above and clearly delineated per topic.

                        In essence, the "rules' applied to the actual MW Library topics do not apply to the discussion threads.

                          Actually, I once made Copies of "Origins of Halloween" and "Mysteries of Stonehenge" and mailled them off to some People who wanted to have a Copy (at my own expense).

                          I did that through the OBOD's Druids Head Pub in the Confidential Members Only Bards Forum.

                          I would Love to do that again, but I couldnt afford the Expenses right now.

                          Basically, I Copy and Hand Out Information on Celtic Paganis, Celtic Druidism and Celtic Buddhism whenever I can at my Own Expense.

                            All I can say is wow. I can't remember that much and I'm a genius.
