Casey Neistat, proper gandist

Be the 1st to vote.

I’ve been watching this highly promoted youtuber for quite some time. He mostly flies planes and drones and travels to places I’ll never go. 

When there’s a close to his home base,  NYC, he’s there to authenticate.

He gets more views than the news anchors, and younger eyes too.

    “Doohan, throughout his acting career, took measures to hide the missing finger, but it was occasionally visible to the camera, including in certain shots from Star Trek. He made no effort, however, to hide the missing finger during his decades of autograph signings and convention appearances.
    So, today, on the anniversary of D-Day, we hope you’ll join everyone at in saluting Doohan, as well as all the soldiers who risked or gave their lives on that pivotal evening.”…

    “Although he was never actually a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, Doohan was once labeled the “craziest pilot in the Canadian Air Force”. In the late spring of 1945, on Salisbury Plain north of RAF Andover, he slalomed a plane between telegraph poles “to prove it could be done”—earning himself a serious reprimand. (Various accounts cite the plane as a Hurricane or a jet trainer; however, it was a Mark IV Auster.)[15][16]””…

    “After the war, Doohan moved to London, Ontario for further technical education. After hearing a radio drama that he knew he could do better, he recorded his voice at the local radio station, and learned about a drama school in Toronto. There he won a two-year scholarship to the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City,[17] where his classmates included Leslie Nielsen, Tony Randall, and Richard Boone.
    In 1946, he had several roles for CBC radio,[18] starting January 12. For several years, he shuttled between Toronto and New York as work demanded. He estimated he performed in over 4,000 radio programs and 450 television programs during this period,”…

    “Leslie William Nielsen, OC (11 February 1926 – 28 November 2010) was a Canadian American actor, comedian, and producer.[1][2] He appeared in more than 100 films and 150 television programs, portraying more than 220 characters.”
    “Following graduation from Victoria School of Performing and Visual Arts in Edmonton, Nielsen enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and trained as an aerial gunner during World War II. He was too young to be fully trained or sent overseas.[16] He worked briefly as a disc jockey at a Calgary, Alberta, radio station, before enrolling at the Lorne Greene Academy of Radio Arts, Toronto.[11][17] While studying in Toronto, Nielsen received a scholarship to the Neighborhood Playhouse. He noted, “I couldn’t refuse, but I must say when you come from the land of the snow goose, the moose and wool to New York, you’re bringing every ton of hayseed and country bumpkin that you packed. As long as I didn’t open my mouth, I felt a certain security. But I always thought I was going to be unmasked: ‘OK, pack your stuff.’ ‘Well, what’s the matter?’ ‘We’ve discovered you have no talent; we’re shipping you back to Canada.’”[11] He moved to New York City for his scholarship,[6] studying theatre and music at the Neighborhood Playhouse, while performing in summer stock theatre.[18] Afterward, he attended the Actors Studio,[19] until making his first television appearance in 1948 on an episode of Studio One, alongside Charlton Heston,[20] for which he was paid $75.”…

    “Tony Randall (born Aryeh (Arthur) Leonard Rosenberg; February 26, 1920 – May 17, 2004) was an American actor, producer, and director, best known for his role as Felix Ungar in the television adaptation of Neil Simon’s play The Odd Couple.

    Randall attended Northwestern University for a year before going to New York City to study at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. He studied under Sanford Meisner and choreographer Martha Graham. Randall worked as an announcer at radio station WTAG in Worcester, Massachusetts.[5] As Anthony Randall, he starred with Jane Cowl in George Bernard Shaw’s Candida and Ethel Barrymore in Emlyn Williams’s The Corn Is Green.
    Randall then served for four years with the United States Army Signal Corps in World War II, refusing an entertainment assignment with Special Services. After the war, he worked at the Olney Theatre in Montgomery County, Maryland before heading back to New York City”…

    “Richard Boone graduated from Hoover High School in Glendale, California. He attended Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, where he was a member of Theta Xi fraternity. He dropped out prior to graduation and went to work in oil-rigging, bartending, painting, and writing. He joined the United States Navy in 1941 and served on three ships in the Pacific during World War II, seeing combat as an aviation ordnance man and gunner on Grumman TBF Avenger torpedo bombers”…

      Please make your comments more to the point with much smaller excerpts. No one here can wade through your wiki dumps to fund the point. Much thanks,

    “Although the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops consisted of only 1,100 soldiers, the contingent used equipment pioneered by British forces such as dummy tanks and artillery, fake aircraft and giant speakers broadcasting the sounds of men and artillery to make the Germans think it was upwards of a two-division 30,000 man force. The unit’s elaborate ruses helped deflect German units from the locations of larger allied combat units.”…

    “Five legendary, Oscar-winning movie directors abandoned their lucrative Hollywood lifestyles to volunteer for often-grueling military service during World War II as part of a corps of hundreds of filmmakers who recorded the Allied advance across occupied Europe and in the Pacific.

    “Five Came Back,’’ a new book out Monday by film historian Mark Harris, recounts their adventures — sometimes under enemy fire — and details how they sometimes secretly faked combat footage that has been passed off as the real thing for decades in documentaries.

    “They all could have gotten out of service because they were too old and/or their work as civilians was so important to American morale,’’ says Harris. “But they all wanted to be in the thick of it and served for at least three years.’’

    John Ford, who had already won three of his unmatched-to-date four Oscars and received a Purple Heart for wounds received while shooting the Academy Award-winning feature documentary “The Battle of Midway,’’ also co-directed “December 7,’’ which won the 1944 Oscar for Best Short Documentary.

    Less than four minutes of film records the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, so Ford and co-director Gregg Toland (who photographed “Citizen Kane’’) staged footage using miniature battleships and airplanes on the Fox lot in Hollywood.

    This was embellished with entirely staged shots taken in Hawaii of sailors manning surface-to-air guns “in time to perfectly frame our response to a surprise attack,’’ Harris says. “Even 70 years after Pearl Harbor, we still so want that to be true.’’

    Once America entered the war, logistical problems and bureaucratic snafus sometimes made it difficult to get film crews to the front lines in time. This was especially true in Africa, where British army crews recorded lots of impressive footage, but most of the few combat scenes photographed by Americans during the invasion of Casablanca went down with a sunken ship.

    So Frank Capra (whose three Oscars included “It Happened One Night’’ and who oversaw an ambitious series of army training films) assigned George Stevens (whose two Oscars after the war included “Giant’’) to spend two weeks in Algiers staging re-creations (that Harris says were obviously faked) using tanks and soldiers assigned to him.

    Besides capturing “already blown-up cities being blown up some more,’’ as Stevens described it, “We took tanks and ran them through the water like they did when the British Seventh Army cut off the Germans by taking their tanks out into the water.’’

    Personally supervised by Capra, director John Huston staged additional “African’’ footage in California’s Mojave Desert with dummy tanks being bombed from the air, as well as additional recreations of dogfights between Allied and (fake) German fighters that were shot in Orlando, Fla.

    Decades later, Huston labeled the faked footage, which turned up in an Anglo-American documentary called “Tunisian Victory,’’ as “disgraceful.’’

    But Harris says Huston — Oscar winner for “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’’ and father of actors Anjelica and Danny Huston — was less frank about the authenticity of “The Battle of San Pietro,’’ his critically acclaimed documentary about an Italian battle that was selected in 1991 for the Library of Congress’ prestigious National Film Registry.

    Harris’ research reveals that Huston arrived at the very end of the battle, which took the lives of more than 1,000 Allied soliders. But with encouragement of his superiors, who provided equipment and hundreds of GI extras, he shot what Harris regards as the most convincingly faked footage of a World War II battle — shot on the actual locations with real participants.

    “When you take away the whole question of fakery,’’ Harris says, “it makes the combat look rough and frightening and punishing, and makes the advance of a line of soldiers look slow and hesitant in ways that set it apart from Hollywood war movies and even from a lot of other documentaries. This was a new look at what the war felt like.’’…

    This video looks very professionally produced. What he is riding at the start of the video? Is it supposed to be a Vespa?

    The film industry and television and radio all started on the East Coast- NJ and NY.
    The stage magicians formed a secret society of sorts. These literal magical masons move wet to create the Military Industrial Entertainment Complex™

    They do a lot of film production in NY and NJ- Rockland Countty NY is a popular spot for film a TV production.

    West Point is 50 miles north of NYC.

    This dude looks like he is part of the show. My the propaganda is thick. Telling us what New Yorkers are. The truth is most New Yorkers see the same news and believe the same lies as everyone else. Yet they do not see these events in person. Yellow journalism rule all media.

    “Joseph Campbell defines yellow press newspapers as having daily multi-column front-page headlines covering a variety of topics, such as sports and scandal, using bold layouts (with large illustrations and perhaps color), heavy reliance on unnamed sources, and unabashed self-promotion. The term was extensively used to describe certain major New York City newspapers around 1900 as they battled for circulation.[3]

    Frank Luther Mott defines yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:[4]

    scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news
    lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings
    use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts
    emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips
    dramatic sympathy with the “underdog” against the system.”…
