  1. Danny I see you made this video a year ago with only 300 views. Surprised? It is inaudible, the delivery hesitant, no lessons are being taught – maybe you need a simple script so that you don't end up rumbling thru your video. I would love to be patronizing and say "good job for the effort" but that will be dishonest of me.

    Do it well or don't do it at all.
