Video is private?

Same problem here. Won't play. Just a message saying:

Happy Day!

Hey Mark, I just found your site and figured I'd "start with The Basics"... har. Great videos, thanks for posting them, and please keep it up!

Hah! Its a small world. At least on the internet. You give a shout out to Genzoman. I can only guess its the same guy who is on my DA list! And I had your blog bookmarked from a long time ago. I think for practically a full year. Like when you started this thing! And I didn't check up on it until recently to see what videos you were up to.
Don't know why I'm telling you exactly. I just found it really neat. XD Six degrees of separation eh? (Yah, I'm Canadian.) Actually I think you said somewhere you are from Toronto so, we are only about 20 minutes away from each other in that case. Because I'm in Hamilton. XD But anyways, thank you for your videos! I love em. I hope I can hold my own at art some day. Thanks,

Trevor.

Oh yah I forgot. On that box rotation you did around 22 minutes you were actually more right the first time with the box immediately left to the center front one, by making the closer line shorter, because of foreshortening. Like how the further shoulder sometimes takes up more space than the shoulder facing the eye.
But then you said, "I know this is wrong because the further line should be shorter... etc." But that's not always the case, especially since your perspective is exaggerated.
At least that's my opinion. I could be wrong.
