Since another well-known BF member has been threatened with having his YouTube account terminated due to copyright strikes, I decided to remove the few music videos I had from YouTube. I have a clean record so far, and would like to keep it that way.
I put the two best ones up on Vimeo. With the free account you only get to upload 500 MB of videos a week, so I'll probably be able to upload one more video this week. Luckily I only have a handful of music videos that are worth re-uploading.
This one was originally posted back in August of last year. It's a descent of Donner Pass Road in the Sierra Nevada mountains. My friend mounted his camcorder on the moonroof of his truck and followed me down the mountain.
I felt that the song I used was very appropriate for this video, and there was no way to duplicate that with the creative commons or audio swap stuff.
This one was never posted anywhere. This was the last descent of the day: Northwoods Blvd in Truckee. I hit 45.6 mph on this one. The song is one of my favorite ones for climbing rides. I have no idea what it is as I recorded it off the radio back in 1991. Even Verizon's V-Cast Song ID couldn't identify it.
Once again, I don't think the euphoria I experience while watching this with this song playing could be duplicated with creative commons or audio swap music.
