Somewhere Video Details

Somewhere was originally added to YouTube on November 20, 2008 and had 663 viewings before it was blocked on January 29, 2009. This vid now has an Introduction.

August 21, 2009 note: I moved Somewhere to Imeem for a few months and then disputed the copyright with YouTube and won it back!

Somewhere came back for a few more month and then suddenly YouTube blocked it around August 15, 2009 with 1,437 viewings.

It is now viewable on my website - not ideal, but is really good quality!!






Somewhere


"It can be scary, you know, when someone goes away. Especially someone you love so much."~Robert Goren - foreshadowing in Blind Spot

I just need to know whatever has happened,
The truth will free my soul.


No copyright infringement intended, just sharing fun!

Somewhere - Within Temptation
Lost in the darkness, hoping for a sign.
Instead there is only silence,
can't you hear my screams?
Never stop hoping,
Need to know where you are,
but one thing is for sure,

I'll find you somewhere.
I'll keep on trying until my dying day.
I just need to know whatever has happened,
the truth will free my soul.


Lost in the darkness, try to find your way home.
I want to embrace you and never let you go.
Almost hope you're in heaven so no one can hurt your soul.
Living in agony cause I just do not know
where you are.



I'll find you somewhere.
I'll keep on trying until my dying day.
I just need to know whatever has happened,
the truth will free my soul.


Wherever you are, I won't stop searching.
Whatever it takes, I need to know.


I'll find you somewhere. I'll keep on trying until my dying day. I just need to know whatever has happened, the truth will free my soul.

A new home.....?

Well, after losing Somewhere this afternoon..... YouTube put it Somewhere...... I explored another video sharing site......

Imeem is a really cool place!

Imeem allowed me to create a playlist of all the songs I've made vids with - you'll have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find it. It was too wide to put in the right hand column of the blog. Sometimes you hear all the song and sometimes you don't.... But if you click on
Vid Music
at the top of the player, you can go to their site and hear the whole playlist. I think you can even download it if you're so inclined. Hey, I love these songs, and I thought they were perfect for the vids, but you can't force someone to like your music. It just doesn't work that way! (darn)

I'm so pleased that there are links to iTunes and Amazon on the Vid Music player. I always buy my music if I can. We've got to keep those musicians making money. Besides, I've never had so much fun for 99 cents!!!

I have uploaded Somewhere and think the quality is excellent! So stay tuned for the next blog entry which will have the vid details.

Brace yourself. Serious nausea potential here........ Okay, I loved the song and I love the message. However you take it, here are partners that stay together. After all.

This one is for Magra, too. It's to keep us going until the Frame episode airdate!

After All - Cher with Peter Cetera

Well, here we are again
I guess it must be fate
We've tried it on our own
But deep inside we've known
We'd be back to set things straight
I still remember when
Your kiss was so brand new
Every memory repeats
Every step I take retreats
Every journey always brings me back to you

After All the stops and starts
We keep coming back to these two hearts
Two angels who've been rescued from the fall
After All that we've been through
It all comes down to me and you
I guess it's meant to be
Forever you and me, After All

When love is truly right
(This time it's truly right)
It lives from year to year
It changes as it goes
Oh, and on the way it grows
But it never disappears

After All the stops and starts
We keep coming back to these two hearts
Two angels who've been rescued from the fall
After All that we've been through
It all comes down to me and you
I guess it's meant to be
Forever you and me, After All
Always just beyond my touch
You know I needed you so much
After All, what else is livin' for?

After All the stops and starts
We keep coming back to these two hearts
Two angels who've been rescued from the fall
After All that we've been through
It all comes down to me and you
I guess it's meant to be
Forever you and me, After All

500 Miles Video details

This vid was originally added to YouTube on July 29, 2008 and had 1,962 viewings before it was muted in January 2009. (My first sentence reflects my hope that I don't have to explain why I'd make this vid to anyone who wasn't a CI fan and if I was found out by those who know me in other capacities that they'd stumbled on one of my huge weaknesses!)

This vid now has an Introduction. Don't watch it full screen - Vimeo doesn't have high quality. Sorry! (It might be a slightly bigger screen if you watch on the Vimeo site....)

This vid is for Magra -- with thanks for her Inspiration, Enthusiasm and Friendship! You go girl!

500 Miles and After All

My first two Criminal Intent vids, 500 Miles and After All, were recently muted by YouTube . I just loved making these vids!!! They are my babies and took incredible numbers of hours to create.

This week YouTube blocked After All entirely - I can still see it on my account, but it's not viewable to the public. I wish I could print out the wonderful, wonderful comments from other awesome Criminal Intent fans, but.....

I know that sometimes YouTube will "give back" videos that have been blocked, so I have left it there, hoping it will come back to life....

Althought the quality is not as good as YouTube, for the meantime 500 Miles and After All can be seen on Vimeo - and in the 2 subsequent posts. Don't try to watch them full screen - there is no high quality as on YouTube. Sigh.

The Anti-Nicole Tactical Plan

A musing that overtook me the other day stemmed from a discussion of Nicole Wallace (yes, I am going to write her name, even though I resist putting her in any vid). Nicole appeared in Law and Order Criminal Intent on 5 occasions – please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong….

Anti-thesis
Person of Interest
Great Barrier
Grow – and briefly, thank goodness, in
Frame

It was in Person of Interest that Goren took an emotional beating. All that intellect and she still got to him. Bad Nicole. Bad Robert! for letting her get to you!

Really, what does Nicole know about him? She can dig up public records and come to some conclusions. But Nicole has a gift. She takes cheap, cruel stabs in the wind and hopes they hit home. And they do. She must be in psycho heaven when she gets the hooded eye look from our Bobby.

So back she comes in Great Barrier. But our detectives were ready with the Anti-Nicole plan. They had obviously discussed how they would approach Nicole should they see her again.
Eames is the first to engage her, standing in front of Goren. Goren is well under control as the two detectives follow her around the interview room. Nicole was really annoyed and seemed unprepared to engage them. Perhaps she sensed their unity was a wall she wasn’t going to penetrate.

But the interesting part of the encounter was a subtle gesture by Goren, meant only for Eames. Behind Nicole’s back, Goren was basically telling her - it's okay, just give me some space to needle her.... Eames must have noticed him winding into predator mode and given him a warning look!
Oh, go team! Get her! (but don’t get “got” in the getting!)

This is for Donna, who loves this fleeting clip!

Enigmas…. Keep ‘em Guessing Girl Power

My friend Magra now has me reading Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series. I’m hooked!

Between reading binges, I was musing….. And so was Magra.


It occurred to both of us that Edward, Twilight’s anti-hero, cannot “hear” Bella, the heroine. Well now, doesn’t that sound like someone we know?

Robert Goren is clueless about reading Eames.

But then maybe she likes it that way….



In the Wee Small Hours (after dropping the change-partner-letter bombshell) and in Betrayed (after he tells her she is absolutely right), Eames has this wonderful enigmatic expression on her face. I have a hard time reading her…

For being such an amazing profiler, Goren is hopeless when it comes to knowing what is right under his nose. He was positively shocked that she reacted so, um, strongly, in Purgatory.


Well, hello, Robert….. much as I love you, you deserved almost everything she laid on you! She was not an enigma on this occasion.

  • She *has* covered your ass many times with no thanks from you.
  • She lost a husband (a cop) to a gun – and here she is pointing a gun at you (keep in mind she’s been with you longer than she was married….) and it’s pretty obvious she’s not happy about the gun thing…
  • You kept her out of the loop, not telling her you were undercover, giving her the impression that you’d gone to the dark side (the old boys’ club – and you know the distain she has for that!).
  • You *do* sometimes treat her as a water girl.
  • You didn't answer her phone calls and gave her the brush off when she physically went looking for you......
No, Alex Eames was not enigmatic on this occasion....

Want to know more about the enigmatic Bella from Twilight? Do you like forbidden love stories?

Do as Susan12121 and her Robert are doing: use your “most important investigative tool”, and check out Twilight.

Your Heart

Since Valentine's Day is approaching, I thought this might be an appropriate time to roll out this tidbit.
To all the shippers out there who never noticed this and for all the shippers who did notice it! I can't believe I noticed it. I must get a life - oh, wait, I have a life!

This micro vid has no sound and most of it is in slow motion. The clip is from Brother's Keeper, Season 6. I adore this whole scene with Goren's brother Frank. Maybe it's the lighting, maybe it's the great talent of both actors, but it has to go down as one of my favourite Goren backstory scenes.

This clip is from that scene:
"That woman. Is that your wife?"
Check out the sign over Eames head.......

I was going to cut the clip there, and then I couldn't resist adding Goren's reaction to Frank's words. He can't look Frank in the eye and quickly changes the subject. Pretty normal happy brother interaction. Pretty rare for these two.

Why we won't miss the beard....

from Siren Call (Season 6)

I had no intent....

criminal or otherwise, of making a blog about Law and Order Criminal Intent. But I'm here in self defense!


I get such a kick out of making music videos for this show. YouTube has been hosting them, but now they are picking on us vidders because of copyright infringement on the music we use. They're deleting and muting videos.


I don't quite get it as you can go to tons of YouTube channels and listen to music and the video part is the lyrics flashing across the screen. Why don't they pick on those guys instead of us creative souls who lovingly scratch and scrape through over a hundred episodes to find just the right clips to go with the music?


I wish there was some sort of agreement we could come to with the music industry! Most of us feel we're making trailers for the shows and advertising for them!


So, this is where I will add Criminal Intent tidbits as it moves me and direct anyone who might be interested to where my vids are located.


Today, they're all still on YouTube on my channel, but two of them have been muted......



Here's one of my favourite split second moments:
