Wah wah wah! “Chad, why don’t you email me?” “Why don’t you send me flowers anymore?” “What is hold up on the bridge project?”

Listen boys and girls, the MAN is one busy little Big Chopperoo! The man has things to do. Just be glad he turns his camera on at all! If it wasn’t for me you would NEVER see the man.

I got Chad to finally answer the big Email question. So pull up a chair and breathe in the answer.

your arrogance here is what makes people not like your postings/posting style very much. I doubt seriously that anyone here cares to email the “big chopperoo”, much less whine about not getting a reply. Please give up the act already, it’s very old.

WOW! Admittingly I won’t watch the video and why would I with a post like this? Ric said it. The arrogance reeks.

Chad, Your comedic talent deserves a showcase.
Thank you for brightening my world.

The ability to laugh at ourselves comes from a pure heart and an honest appreciation of those things we cherish. I’ve got a lot of woodworking to do today and I’ll be doing it with a smile on my face.

I’m emailing a link to your videos to a friend of mine that is high up in woodworking publishing.
If you get discovered, don’t blame me. <grin>

All the best to you and your crew.
I’m hoping you have a very successful 2009.

Dance on…

You are great! Thank you for your camera time and I do enjoy your way of presenting tid bits of knowledge. ...all knowledge is good but some are down right boring so your presetation has renewed the fact that we love the wood…

i check LJ’s at work on my lunch break. I saw this, along with the first two comments, and was intrigued. Unfortunately, youtube is blocked, but when I got home, I was watching and was litterally laughing out loud when I saw your computer. MY wife thinks I’m ridiculous (nothing new) but then I showed her and she was laughing too. Thanks for some good entertainment.

Thank you EVERYONE for leaving comments. My videos are made just to make people smile. It’s not my goal to offend some people, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. The wonderful thing about these videos are, that it brought my brother and myself closer together. Even if everyone hates the show, it’s worth it to me to have a close relationship with my brother. So i have no intentions of ending the videos.
We have new ideas for this years shows. So i hope all will enjoy it (i’m sure some won’t)
It should be a fun year.

Hey, maybe with time the format will evolve. Until then we have a choice to view or not to view. But I think helpful suggestions are the best way to comment, not sarcasm. “he who is without sin can cast…..and so forth”.

Personally I will keep viewing. I do like your tongue in cheek woodworking tips. My recommendation: Maybe turn up the tip talk and tone down the funny a little bit. Then you become a person to listen to for two reasons. We’re not like a captive audience listening to a boring lecturer. We already have the interest to listen to the tips. So, the humor is just a fun secondary icing on the cake. Did you ever get a piece of commercially made cake with The icing way too thick and sweet? Much better with a thin layer of maple walnut (woodworking pun… bad huh?). Keep ‘em coming and let’s see what develops.

You bring a unique quality to the site with what you offer. While I may not laugh at everything you do, I do find your tips to be instructive and helpful: isn’t that what this site is for??? Keep it up, and as you stated: everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Well all I can say is your funny!!! I have one more thing to say keep making them funny. If people don’t like funny then they need not view your videos. Thanks for posting.

Hey, where is Safety Dan? The writers didn’t kill him off this season, right? Keep up the great light hearted work filled with helpful tips. Thanks.

Rxmpo- Oh No, Safety Dan has not gone anywhere. He’ll be in the next coming video. As well as future videos. We’ll also introduce new characters also this year. We’re trying to give 3 different types of videos this year. “Quick Tips”, “Viewer Emails” and small “Projects” to build. So i hope you enjoy them
