The Purely Selfish And Brutally Honest Reasons I Do The Vinny Eastwood Show.
What follows is a break down of this year in reflection of my personal and professional struggles in the truth movement and why I need your support to overcome some of the hurdles that face me this holiday season and onward to 2017.
This is a rant that I recorded on a whim when I was feeling really sad after this very tough year.
It's actually quite funny and amusing to listen to, but also quite heartbreaking and I thank you for listening to it.

LAST 10 MINUTES OF UNCENSORED RANT:
FULL AUDIO RECORDING
At the beginning of 2016 on January 6th, (about half way through my annual holiday)
I received word that he'd become involved in yet another protest where myself and reputable journalist Susanne Posel thought he would probably get somebody killed.
I had to cancel my holiday immediately and expose him,
It didn't matter what he'd done to me in 2015,
What mattered was preventing Santilli getting honest American Patriots killed or set up by the FBI.
I just couldn't stand by and watch it happen on youtube.
I went on a number of radio shows (roughly 10 vids on the topic to warn people) and created a fantastic short documentary titled "The Unauthorized Biography of Pete Santilli"
Unfortunately, we were too late to save Lavoy Finicum who was shot dead
And the Bundy's who all got busted.
Fast forward to today, Santilli is in jail, awaiting trial for crimes he committed earlier in 2015.
I hope the work we did to expose him helped prevent others from getting used and hurt.
Despite such a bad start to the year,
It was VERY PRODUCTIVE!
I was getting up at 3-4am and getting half a days work done before most other people even get out of bed.
But despite making a lot better material and interviewing some top notch guests,
The year kept getting worse.
I got a new green screen and started making shows with cool backgrounds,
This took a LOT of extra editing, like A LOT.
Not only was I using this new thing which added another layer to the quality of the show,
But I had to do it over and over again to perfect the method over a number of different episodes.
I also now had 2 functioning computers on my desk, so i thought:
"Hey, you know what would make more work for me and improve the quality of the videos that produce bugger all ad revenue cos everyone uses ad blocker?"
"Record the skype webcam on both computers using 2 different skype accounts connected to the same call and edit them together later, so I can switch between an A cam and B cam, instead of just being limited to one."
"That sounds like it'll drive you mental trying to synch the audio alone, let's do it!"
So I start recording with 2 computers and lost my mind trying to (again) learn a new methodology of doing 2 cameras AND a green screen AND the guest's webcam for a 2 HOUR SHOW several times a week...
I started interviewing ONLY people who had larger websites, facebook followings or youtube audiences than I did and as a result published some of the best work and greatest shows I've ever made!
But because of the work load, I went from doing 5 days a week, to 3 days a week, to one day a week.
And by the end of October, my brain started saying to me:
And I'm like "What? I'm busy!"
"I know bro, You're about to burn out man, you got like 2 weeks untill I go full thermonuclear meltdown."
It does this from time to time, and sure enough, the accumulated stress of the years work started baring down on me.
And that's when I interviewed Ralph Ellis, a ridiculously BRILLIANT man who gave this new take on the Jesus story, and guess what, he wanted to see if we could add slides and pictures into the video, in addition to his webcam, my 2 webcams and my green screen.
Which was really awesome, because American Freedom Radio also wanted me to pioneer a way to do my green screen effect and switching cameras while streaming it LIVE.
That was in September, as I'm writing this sentence it's December 21st and I only just published that video.
I was just so overloaded and stressed out in so many ways by my work alone that I couldn't take any more,
This was real sad because so many important protests and events were being held that I just couldn't attend, and without me, so many potential videos and radio shows documenting them from the New Zealand perspective simply do not exist, a great and terrible swell of guilt and shame comes over me just thinking about it... Guilt because I wasn't there, Shame because no one else in my whole country documented it in my absence...
Suffice to say, I think I spent more time on that Ralph Ellis video than any other work I've EVER produced and feel invigorated by it! Days and days it took me, and if you've seen how RIDICULOUSLY FAST I can edit a video, you'd literally break down weeping at the thought of how much work that entails, or at least after 5 minutes of me explaining just the step by step process of how it is done. (Which I can teach you to do via skype by the way if you have iMovie)
Regardless, after the result of that video, I feel ready to head into 2017 with a brand new lease on life.
But, before we get there,
I had to also elaborate about the personal side of things.
At the beginning of the year, our landlords increased our rent for the second time in 2 years and we had to fork out nearly $40 a week more than we originally bargained for a couple years back.
About half way through 2016 our cat Griffin (Named after G Edward Griffin) got sick,
And you know Vets, they're homeless, got PTSD and gulf war syndrome n stuff-NO I'm kidding!
I dig the irony that veterinarians charge like a wounded animal.
It cost over a thousand bucks to save him!
It was so traumatic for both Sarah and I,
We raised the money to pay for the surgery from donations, but,
What we didn't realize is his new "vet approved diet" was about way more expensive as his previous one!
So we wound up having to pay an extra couple hundred dollars a month just to feed the cat,
During winter, a time when my wife's gardening work has dried up and money gets very tight.
So as these things go, Sarah wakes me up at 3am in agonizing pain,
We went to the hospital and it turned out she had a MASSIVE gall stone!
After surgery a few days later, it turns out that she's not going to really be able to work for several months while she healed and also needed to take a few supplements to replace the enzymes produced by the gall bladder which was removed.
While in hospital they also discovered a fibroid about 10CM in size,
This turned out to be one of the main reasons why for the last 10 years we've been unable to have a baby.
Sarah is eventually having the thing removed in a very simple procedure, but with the overloaded NZ government health system that might take till mid 2017 before it's removed with up to a 6 month recovery period afterwards where she might not be able to work, but that's the future, I was talking about the past.
Stress was high after the removal of her Gall bladder because she was unable to work and we could barely afford to feed ourselves or the cat as it is,
I knew I had to take care of Sarah and ensure she didn't stress out, or it would make her heal slower,
so I told her not to worry, to just take 4 months off,
Just enough time to fully heal your body and mind from the trauma of the surgery.
Later on, Dr Leonard Coldwell interviewed me on his show (thanks to Angela Forman) and when I told him about my wife's gall stone, he donated half a months rent!
He knew exaclty how painful gallstones are on account of the 100+ they removed from his gallbladder!
It was such good news that I almost refused to believe it.
But when the money appeared in my account, it made me think things would start getting better.
Then, I got the news,
Ev Gilbert, a long time friend, activist and frequent guest on my show, died of Liver cancer very suddenly.
It was such a shock because I'd just been at her house singing her a Happy 60th Birthday only a month earlier.
Ev had a few microphones and radio gear that I knew I could put to good use in her name,
So I gave her husband all the spare cash I had at the time to help him pay the bills as well as pass on some of her personal items to someone she would have wanted to have them.
It was incredible how tearfully, painfully and loudly I cried while editing her funeral video.
What was significant in her death is that she was the only alternative blogger in NZ with deep knowledge of the New World Order that published original works regularly and to a real high standard of credibility.
This left me feeling a tremendous burden,
That I'm now the leader of the NZ alternative media by default, by a huge margin.
And I feel totally unworthy of that title, I'm so lazy, many things I say aren't fact checked.
I'm more of a comedian and an entertainer with personal issues and the realization that I now have to GET REAL and make a difference on the serious side of the fence with credible journalism was a bit of a shock to the system.
That's why in 2017, you're gonna see a whole new Vinny Eastwood.
It's going to still be the same kind of fun you're used to, just better in every way that matters!
This christmas is financially strained and I' working really hard to get things done now that my energy levels are starting to return.
I've really been blessed to have such an understanding and intelligent audience who totally get me and the reasons I do what I do, including taking long periods of unscheduled time off, leaving many wondering wtf happened?
Well, I still haven't really had a break, because every day there's been something I've needed to do.
I tried for a while posting the most popular archives ever up there so people who only recently started listening could enjoy some of that gold backlog.
So, I'm just going to be blunt here, it's so hard to do my work and keep a clear head when I literally have to skip meals so we can afford to pay the bills.
If 2017 is going to be a vast improvement, I need your backing to really make that happen.
I hate salesman tactics and manipulation techniques that everyone uses to make others part with their cash.
So I'm just going to give it to you all straight.
I really do work hard, my work is of value to the international community and mankind's destiny to be free from the tyrannical rule of scumbaggery.
I remember reading an article about how happiness costs $60,000 a year, basically because all the things that stress you out: unexpected bills/costs/guests/events that eat away your available cash, are pretty much 100% covered and you can afford some kind of decent life.
But because I've got about 90% less costs than most working people because I don't even leave the house to work and don't go out partying because I'm in bed by like 8pm anyway and haven't bought a shread of cloting in a decade.
I realistically just need an extra $150 per week in order to cancel out all the current stressful mechanisms that are plaguing my life and fucntion at maximum efficiency.
But what do YOU get for that? Other than the usual free shows followed by more begging?
Well, I thought about this, and Patreon was a big inspiration in starting up the new Vinny Eastwod Donors group on facebook, a place where I will post new shows and videos a couple days before they get released to the general public alongside my Patreon page.
So if you donate (or even HAVE DONATED) and/or started an Automatic payment through either the paypal, Patreon or Kiwibank, send me a message and I'll add you to the group :) (KEYWORD: DONOR)
It also doubles as a place to have fun conversations without the hassle of youtube & facebook trolls (you know what I'm taking about)
Any suggestions you have in what else would be a good reward for donating are much appreciated!
But, if donating is just a sign of saying "keep up the good work" Then that works for me too ;)
Love you guys, don't know where I'd be without you there to be my light in dark places :)
