Even though this isn't generating much interest here, I'll finish posting the series. :)

I think it might draw more interest if you were to actually participate in the group vs. come here to lure us to your web site.

Ouch! Lure? I'm giving this stuff away and get nothing in return but a smile on my face.
If the climate were different here I'd participate more.

FWIW, I side with Leon. Brian and I had the "script" discussion before. Brian pointed out the disclaimer on his web site that (paraphrased) he "is in no way responsible for anything", and that was all I needed to know.

I like Brian and have always been supportive of his efforts.
That said, I have also mentioned that there are a surfeit of these types of woodworking concept videos on the interwebz and it has been apparent for some time now that their appeal has diminished considerably.
It's why Norm and DJM, and their producers with the smart money, got out while the getting was good.
It was a sign of the times when a youngster in his twenties, like the WoodWhisperer, a nice enough guy in his own right (and I like him personally enough to have donated to help he and his family over a rough patch a few years ago), could suddenly have absorbed all the woodworking wisdom of the world to instruct others, while barely out of diapers himself.
It was a bandwagon, and one that didn't always add up, made possible first by cable TV, then YouTube and Google+, et al.
Now Elvis has left the building...

Amen, Producing a video does not mean that the video is demonstrating the best way, correct way, or accepted way to do something.
The vast majority of the woodworking videos are more of a documentary of the person learning by trial and error. I have not seen one in the last several years that did not have amateur mistakes.
The funniest ones are where the person is not quite comfortable with applying glue. How much should I use, well if I have 50% squeeze out that should be plenty.
Hint, the glue expense should not be a major part of the cost of the project.
And my all time favorite, Brad what's his name that insisted on calling a SCMS a RAS.
Oh and then there was the one, Ultimate Workshop IIRC, The guy saw his mistake in cutting a dado when the guard prevented him from finishing the cut. He and the audience got to witness that one as he was "teaching" how to do that procedure.

Oh please, don't feint benevolence. "Giving away." pft... Giving away what? Instructions that can be found for free a million other places including related videos that show up on yours?
Your getting hits to your monetized videos which make you money from google/youtube. All you've done is realized the modern revenue structure for media content. Give it away and get as many people to hit on it as possible and collect the ad money. I get my direct deposits from youtube, too.
Now if you'd just get hit in the balls a few times in your videos, you'd *really* discover the secret to increased revenue stream. :-)

Nobody is making money from my content. Unless they are uploading it and serving their own google ads.

More like yours. Youtube doesn't provide their service as a charity. They make money and you're contributing the content that allows it, even if you don't allow it to be monetized.
Are you also providing ads for Highland Woodworking out of the kindness of your heart. If so, also stupid. :-p

I'm not clear on what your problem is.
First it appears that you have a problem with me making money from Google ( your ignorance can be blamed for this assumption). Then you appear to be f aulting me for NOT making money from Google (to quote you "Well then that's just plain stupid."). Now you appear to be faulting me for making other p eople money.
Make up your mind guy. You sound very angry. And here I thought musicians were supposed to be laid back and chill :)
Relax bro.

Nice of you to clarify, Leon. While not overtly offensive, I found your post to be a bit edgy.
I find Brian's website interesting and don't mind him touting it here. I mean, perhaps if this group was not bogged down with Verizon rants and some of the other extraneous crap that drifts in from time to time...
OTOH, I can't seem to figure out Mike (oh he of little to no redeeming qualities) at all. It seems like nothing Brian does pleases him.
He's pissed when he thinks Brian's making money, he is pissed and goes further to ridicule him when Brian says he's not. If Mike's that upset, perhaps the best thing for him to do is just put Brian in his Killfile - just a Mike as now earned a place in mine.<g>

Well his opening statement was indicating that he was not getting much interest. I took that as something that concerned him, he thought so much about it that he mentioned it. I simply commented that if he participated more "here" that he might get more of a following and or comments to his "click here" posts.
I in fact early on, years ago, commented to Brian that he seemed to have a talent for producing these videos and encouraged him to persue this avenue.
I don't really think I was edgy in the least, I am not known for hiding my thoughts and they are really very seldom meant to be taken as offensive.

Bogged down? Have you not been able start an an on topic thread?
When NO ONE is talking about woodworking, OT posts happen more often and seem to be the only thing here. In those cases if there was no OT posting there would be no posting at all. ;~)

There are many mysteries in this world. ;~)

Well some people are not irritated enough to kill file. ;~)

I have a problem with you pretending to be benevolent by "giving the stuff away" and your general attitude that we should be grateful for you for gracing us with your wisdom.
What's stupid as allowing a corporation to profit off your labors without you being paid.
By the way, you didn't answer my question about the Highland Woodworking ads.

Hey... Make sure you are clear here... You're talking about -MIKE- and that's important because there are a couple of us Mikes here. Each one of us can be offensive in one way or another but we don't like our offensive natures to get confused.
Right. Reading your posts are kinda like smelling your own farts...they kinda stink, but they have their own sweet bouquet at the same time! ;-)
