Introduction for JeremyRoberts

I enjoy publishing features and interviews that offer a fresh perspective. Elvis Presley, Steve McQueen, John Wayne, the Three Stooges, the Monkees, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Rick Nelson, country music, late night comedy, classic Hollywood, Westerns, agriculture, and American history provide me with endless fascination. I am the proud recipient of a Master of Agricultural Leadership degree obtained at the University of Georgia. My passions include reading biographies, watching classic cinema, listening to music—most anything cut between 1955 and 1980—uncovering recording session trivia, experiencing the Great Outdoors, eating home cooked Southern meals served by my grandmother, being an attentive listener, and setting aside moments in my day to encourage others.

Sounds like you would be good at trivial pursuit! I was glad to meet you Jeremy - I look forward in reading some of your posts.

I'm new too, so I thought I'd extend you a welcome. Very interesting bio.

I think this place is going to be fun. I hope you enjoy it as well.

I look forward to seeing you around here and hearing more about your hobbies.

A good diverse range of music tastes - the agriculture degree sounds impressive - more so to someone like me who can barely mow a lawn - welcome

That's quite the interests you have there my friend! Looking forward to reading your posts. Care to share any of your grandmother's Southern meal recipes?

Sometimes it seems I'm always late to the party when it comes to discovering some artists. I became a Rick Nelson fan probably 20 years after his death.

We have the same tastes in music and movies ! love the Beach Boys especially and tell me that you have heard of 'Shane' ?

You seem like a genuine person. My daughter is majoring in Animal Science. Both of my kids are officers in FFA.

Thank you Kasman for the detailed post regarding image copyright. I removed the image in question from the Elvis/Glen Campbell article. Can you comment on whether it is accepted fair use to post the cover of a book/album/movie if am I reviewing and discussing the contents contained within? Does that not fall under fair use? I would like to read a detailed article on this matter.

JeremyRoberts - 'Fair Use' is a bit of a red herring and if you Google that term you will find a plethora of articles on it - you could start with this one: http://www.teachingcopyright.org/handout/fair-use-faq The situation is far from simple but 'Fair Use' isn't a separate category - it still falls under ordinary copyright laws and a Court of Law (if a case ever gets that far) would consider each case on its own merits. All over the internet you will find reviews and critiques of books, movies, etc which include images or quotes from the subject and many of them are breaching copyright laws because they include too much content from the subject of the review. Most people are either unaware of the laws of copyright or simply don't care and in truth the chances of any single infringer being prosecuted is small (but not impossible - read this: http://www.contentfac.com/copyright-infringement-penalties-are-scary/ I guess it all comes down to how much we respect the intellectual property rights of others (how would you feel if a photo you took was used elsewhere online without your permission?). I am not a member of the admin team for Persona Paper and I don't speak for them but the rules are quite clear - if you use an image you do not have permission to use you run the risk of not being paid for your work and that alone is a good reason for abiding by copyright laws. I offer no advice on using Amazon images in your posts - it depends on how Persona Paper admin regards your reviews - but the worst that is likely to happen is that you will be advised to remove them before being paid.

PS: An afterthought on reviews: in my opinion if a review containing an image and/or extracts from the subject under review is favourable then the copyright holder is unlikely to take any action but if it is unfavourable . . . well, you never know - they might take offence and decide to take legal action! The bottom line is be careful what you publish because you are legally liable for it!

such a pleasure to read your thoughtful introduction, Melissa.......I have the utmost respect for FFA and wishing your daughter best wishes as she pursues her dreams...

"Shane" is about as good as it gets when you're discussing classic Westerns or movies for that matter; a VHS copy was given to me when I was really little by my grandparents; still have it; Alan Ladd never really got the respect that he deserves; such a naturally gifted actor who had a knack for always underplaying and reacting to the moment or his fellow actors

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:23 PM

not nearly as late to the party as I tend to be LOL; always unbelievably satisfying to encounter a fellow Rick Nelson fan; in case you wanna hear a deep cut, check out "You Just Can't Quit" from 1966; Rick wrote the song and it features a fantastic James Burton chicken pickin' guitar solo; foreshadows his later million seller "Garden Party"

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:25 PM

tough question there; I do know that my grandmother, Thelma, contributed recipes to a cookbook recognizing my hometown's centennial in 1981; lotsa folks are pushing to get it reprinted and available online; will let you know if that happens; she could make the best green beans, rice, salmon patties, fried chicken, sweet tea, macaroni, and biscuits imaginable!

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:27 PM

mowing the lawn isn't as complicated as you might think it is; just ask a relative or close friend for a little help; but you're probably being modest; once you get the hang of it, you'd be surprised how peaceful the experience can be; perfect place to get lost in your own world and contemplate what you've done and what you wanna do next........I appreciate your awfully generous remarks

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:30 PM

Hi Crowntower, I'm 31 years old........you're definitely not the first to call me an old soul; when I was little, I found incredible solace in watching movies made 50 or even 60 years ago; never really into videogames; only watched selected cartoons like Looney Tunes, classic Micky Mouse/Donald Duck or Batman which all still hold up.......and of course, musically speaking Elvis and the Beatles were always at the top of the heap even if my parents tended to prefer country

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:30 PM

super idea; can't tell you how long it's been since I played Trivial Pursuit; I'd give you a run for your money LOL

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:32 PM

I concur wholeheartedly, Coffee; many thanks for welcoming me to Persona Paper; I look forward to seeing more of your work as well; feel free to add a link below to one of your articles that you feel especially proud of

JeremyRoberts wrote on July 29, 2015, 5:33 PM

Hi thisnthat, thank you for the thumbs up; I'm certainly not nearly as interesting as I may appear; pop culture just never ceases to fascinate me!
