As many of you have noticed, Grandfather Aleister has disappeared from YouTube. You all should know my mantra by now of "Nobody has ever been harmed by walking away from conspiracy theories," but I don't think that this was a planned exit.
In a previous exchange via YouTube, Grandfather did suggest that he was finishing up, however he hinted at some subject areas that had not yet been explored in his videos. He also wrote to me on May 3rd to thank me for mentioning his video #36 on the blog. At that time he gave no hint about this subsequent departure.
Grandfather Aleister had commented along the line that his use of scenes from films had caused some of his videos to be removed from YouTube. He didn't seem to be bothered by this, but maybe YouTube intensified its response to his liberal use of copyrighted material. When I see engaging clips from movies in YouTube, I often go out and rent or purchase the movie. I guess the Entertainment industry doesn't want people to purchase its products. That's a pity, because some of them are good.
I hope that Grandfather Aleister is able to regroup and complete his video project. I really believe that he was leading up to something worthwhile.
In the meantime, I offer these vids as a tribute to a good friend.
Somebody suggested that I was Grandfather Aleister, which is incorrect. I feel like I know him, but sometimes my arms bend back.
