hi folks, 17 nuclear technologists on summer break from mit helped me to get last week's iridium dave mckenna class and solo concert up on youtube. (i think it may help traffic that i included mel's entire latest rant under "tags".)

i knew if mike showed up there would be trouble. he is like a crap magnet, i wanted to say something else but sometimes scot is the censor nazi. oops, i hope he doesn't see that, he may cut off my account again. just kidding, i appreciate your efforts dave, you do a great job but the financial compensation is unbelievable, as in nothing. thanks again!
great stuff, many thanks dave.
fuck off gordon.


dave frank
i sure hope gordon sees the humor that dave so unabashedly displays. you have to love dave gently, he is so sensitive and timid. lol
woah...i didn't realize that dave had died until i started watching this.  

great analogy with the watch/watch maker by the way.
>wdennissorell - nope - thanks for your diplomacy but i didn't see the humor in that. i don't take any personal offence, but i think it pays to be a little more careful in forums than we would be in normal life.
what a novel idea...   hm.
what did gordon do?
i didn't do anything elwapo - i just gave sincere thanks to the man and got told to "fuck off" in reply.
no, you were told to fuck off, haha..rule #4 in comedy is to surprise with an opposite response from what is socially expected, then to alert the schockee using the haha finisher to highlight the non-serious nature of the seeming offensive reply. a musical example of this might be to announce to the audience that you are about to play the touching ballad tenderly, and then immediately play it as a two-fisted raunchy bar room boogie brawl.

certainly we extremely hip, witty folk are allowed to play with the conventions of language and social intercourse amongst friends on a cutting-edge forum dedicated to esoteric art forms and rule-breaking idioms of expression, no?

no worries dave, it's just that it's pretty easy for things to be taken the wrong way on internet forums.  
without the plethora of audio and visual cues that accompany normal communication, the meaning behind words is left to a very wide interpretation.
anyway, it's really not a biggie, and i'm still really grateful for your videos. can't wait to see the chico marx stuff !
pretty weird
