Help a fellow LJ -- Need your views and votes and comments

I know just in the past few days we have been bashing the tv networks for not funding Norm and shoving hours and days worth of activity into 20 minutes. But I want my claim to fame, well at least a chance. Even if it is just online!

Please view my entry video, it's not the most exciting, but to the point, and hopefully not too boring. I will be honest, I feel I am PBS material not DIY network material. Simply, I am the real deal, similar to Norm, and I am not an actor with a pretty face that can read cue card and make it look like you aren't.

I would be honored if I was selected as a finalist and got to go for America's vote which the winners will be notified the first week of August. I don't know if I would honestly accept a show offer knowing the history of the channel and how often a show goes off the air after a few weeks and have to give up teaching at a school I absolutely love. Well we'll cross that bridge if the road goes that way when it comes.

Here is the link to the video.

Anyways if that doesn't work, I am on pg 3 of the recent entries, 4th row down, 3rd in from left. Here's a link to page 3:

http://www.diynetwork.com/stud-finder-2009-be-the-next-do-it-yourself-star-gallery/package/index.html?pn=3

The producers will select 4 of the 5 finalists. America will vote for the 5th. Voting takes place Aug 3-31. I would appreciate your vote! I will update the link for the voting next month. Hopefully with 11000+ LJ's I can get a few views and get noticed by the producers.

Thanks for the support. I too will have more videos posted online once school starts up again for those that are interested.

Hey Jason
I edited My previous post because I didn't feel it was supportive enough after thinking about it.
Good look in the competition .

Good Luck!

I just got my entry posted too. I have been struggling forever with getting the file size to fit or formatted to their site.

Just a heads up, I tried your link to see you video and it did not work for me.

Good Luck again, can't win if you don't try!

What happens is when enough new videos are posted it bumps me to a different page and for some reason when that happens the URL changes, unlike with youtube.

Thanks. I think the problem comes from additional entries causing a change in your location. I had a couple of comments from private emails that my link did not work and I noticed the address had changed.

Since they closed the entries I don't think that they will change.

You should be able to go to the top of your blog and click on "edit" to add the new address within the blog and get rid of the old one. I don't think many people will go all the way down the page to try the various links.

I'll go over and give you my support!

Todd, I went to DIY and found your video since the link would not work. Don't know if I did something wrong but when I viewed it there was 0 comments and 0 ratings. It looked like no one had voted. I sure hope DIY did not mess things up and lose all our comments to you and ratings.

Just wanted to say I was also supporting you and mabey you should check out the DIY site. ( hope my comp. just did not load correctly or something)

Congrats on the chance. You deserve it.

Scrappy

My link has been updated.

Remember, Voting officially doesn't begin until Aug 3, but more views and ratings can't hurt.

It is okay to support 2 LJ's in this competition. Todd has my endorsement, however if it comes down to cut throat politics, I won't rule that out either :)

Help a fellow LJ -- Need your views and votes and comments

I know just in the past few days we have been bashing the tv networks for not funding Norm and shoving hours and days worth of activity into 20 minutes. But I want my claim to fame, well at least a chance. Even if it is just online!

Please view my entry video, it's not the most exciting, but to the point, and hopefully not too boring. I will be honest, I feel I am PBS material not DIY network material. Simply, I am the real deal, similar to Norm, and I am not an actor with a pretty face that can read cue card and make it look like you aren't.

I would be honored if I was selected as a finalist and got to go for America's vote which the winners will be notified the first week of August. I don't know if I would honestly accept a show offer knowing the history of the channel and how often a show goes off the air after a few weeks and have to give up teaching at a school I absolutely love. Well we'll cross that bridge if the road goes that way when it comes.

Here is the link to the video.

Anyways if that doesn't work, I am on pg 3 of the recent entries, 4th row down, 3rd in from left. Here's a link to page 3:

The producers will select 4 of the 5 finalists. America will vote for the 5th. Voting takes place Aug 3-31. I would appreciate your vote! I will update the link for the voting next month. Hopefully with 11000+ LJ's I can get a few views and get noticed by the producers.

Thanks for the support. I too will have more videos posted online once school starts up again for those that are interested.
Well an update on the contest. Todd nor I were selected. Kind of a setup when allowing the public to vote, because they only had 3 choices. Anyway the show is on this week and most of the contestants were picked based on looks and camera presence. Skills, they were there, but lacked in my personal opinion. I can say for myself, and I think Todd is similar, we are PBS material by today's TV standards. DIY network is out for entertainment, not information. Not saying I was the best choice, but I would have fared well under the contests that decided the winner. I won't spoil the outcome because the 1 hour show called "stud finder" is replayed over and over. However the winner is obvious, I called it from the start. Now I was wrong on one of the final 2, but I called the winner from the choices that were available. However I saw plenty of audition tapes, both myself and Todd's that were better than what was on there. In fact the host, Matt Blashaw, was on last year's stud finder and didn't win. His tape was kind of ridiculous, but he has made a good host for his show Deconstruction. I show that one in class. Do we learn how to build anything. Not really, just a little trivia about air compressors, or roof trusses. They are good videos for when I have a sub.
