i know it won’t be to some people’s liking, but there is room for all kinds of approaches to teaching. Look at what bill nye did for interest in elementary science. I am not certain who your target market is… but it isn’t mandatory viewing for anyone and as a result anyone who is offended by watching it for the first time should know better than to watch it twice.

personally, I love the entertainment value you bring to the table in your videos along with the instruction, but honestly, I don’t think it has the best PR value. I don’t know what you’re intended goals are, but obviously from your work and effort in the videos you have passion. I would think that dancing in your underwear might be along the lines of something like a blackmail video being released way later on in your life, when you become a politician or something (HAHA). But i dunno, anything is possible today….shiot people are getting jobs these days by running thru fences and getting 100k views on youtube so, dance on brotha hahah

To Mr. Chopperoos helper,
I don’t know if you realize this but the big chopperoo has already posted this and all his other crap on this site. He has also had his helper explain that he is to busy to do the postings himself, which could explain why this is being reposted. I think this is a big attempt to become an attention mongrol. Who cares about how he acts or what he has to offer. Offer it once and move on.

You certainly bring a unique perspective to the table. I can honestly say that if i tried some of those moves I probably would end up hurting myself. :)

Kolwdwrkr , I couldn,t of said it better myself .
The last time this guy was on his buddy filled the entire page with items . All he did was cut and paste the same message to at least 13 different post in a matter of 5 minutes . He must think he is a woodworking god .

I think when Chad joined and posted some of his videos, everyone said that his posts should have been in the blog section and not the project section. Now he has put his items in the blog section to accomodate everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever seen everyone jump on one persons back as badly as they have for Chad. His posts are hardly offensive. At worst, someone could say ridiculous, but many of us seem to find the humor in that. Please don’t pick on posts that you don’t like. Some of us want to keep seeing them. The rest of you can just skip them in the future.

HokieMojo, I agree with not picking on posts we don’t like, and I never personally said I don’t like it. I think he is a lot different in his ways and that is good. A lot of people will learn from him, possibly me included if I can muster up the strength to deal with his videos. Having said that I only posted my comment because I’ve seen this before, and to post 5 or more blogs all at once including this one is not a way to teach, it’s a way to get attention and to feed a mediocre ego. We all get his point. I accept that he’s a loony. Now why don’t he post new stuff and not worry about whether people like him or not, and do it professionally since he has ten years experience and apparently that means a lot in the industry. His experience should guide him past peoples negativity and on to new programs, and, he should personally post and answer questions, not hide behind the curtain. He isn’t famous and if he was who cares. This is lumberjocks, not lumberproducers. Now if you will excuse me I need to inform my secretary to start working on my next blog.

I’ve been watching all of the WW’ing podcasts over the past several months and I can honestly say that Tommy MacDonald is by far the best balance of entertainment and woodworker that the community has to offer.

This guy is far ‘left’ lets say, most other ww’ers are far ‘right’, with the Wood Whisperer somewhere right of center.

You want some serious knowledge with a little fun mixed in I would HIGHLY suggest you go over to immediately :) I am in no way affiliated with Tommy, except for the fact that he’s the best :)

Been offline for awhile – looks like things are a little different around here, Oh Well, woodworking is woodworking – so I guess if I can learn anything from his videos – than I can tolerate the silliness.
