I actually appluad the second effort to get the bar moving Big J. It speaks volumes that you wanted it bad. Ya, its a huge fucking drag you didn't get it, but its fixable. I think you are starting with your hips too low. A deadlift is not a squat. All deadlifters are not created equal in the starting position either. Next time, start with the hips higher. When you think they are good, then begin the pull being tight as can be, pulling the bar towards you as you sit back on those heels. Once I am in position, I roll backwards on my heels a bit as I hold the bar and then pull.

Curious - have you ever tried sumo's? You just might be better suited for them, based on how you pull now.
