You are da man, Pockets. I'd give my 3rd testicle to be the new Star Wars Kid. You will have to learn the Numa Numa song on the ukelele.

What if someone who hangs out in the forest community became famous, and I mean big time, the kind of fame which lasts for thousands of years even unlike JK rolling in it who will be forgotten in a generation or three.
What if the individual in question who has become famous felt that they were abused by the forest comunity artistically at least? A bit of a bummer for the forest surely.
With that in mind, and basic human decency, without crass politeness, the forest arts comunity needs to start thinking about its atitude towards the members of the said community.

I got this email yesterday, do you think its a fake?

Hello my name is Bryan and I'm with the American show "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." I recently saw your performance online using your KazooKeylele. I'd love to talk with you more about a possible appearance on our show.

Can you send me an email and/or phone number?

Thanks,
Bryan

The Tonight Show does have a talent co-ordinator called Bryan Branly. The NBC studios they fil it in are in Burbank California, which is also the area code of the telephone number you have been given.

May be fake, but can't rule out it being real either.

I speak American too. I've never actually been there, but I'm sure if I use the word "like" at least ten times per sentence I'll be warmly welcomed. Also, I really, really (RLY) want to see Jay Leno's car collection.

You should cover Merry Christmas (I don't want to fight tonight) by the Ramones!!

I think a cover of that would sound good on the kazookeylele - maybe it's not well known enough for the Tonight show though?

I only just checked this out as I have been away and it really is great. It is musically perfect, entertaining, interesting and fun. I wish I was there to harmonise with you again, that was fun doing that spontaneous evening a while back. I am sorry I am not.

If you do do the american thing - I have a brother there I've never met, YET. All I know is he's working as a taxi driver in New York, he was born in Hungary and his father is called Dezso (pronounced deszh-er). Feel free to announce he has a sister who would like to meet him. There is another brother in Hungary working in a healing mud place.

Enjoy yourself

He knows about his brother though, they had the same parents. I am their baby sister, their only sister, and I don't even know their names but we would share the same surname. I was told quite by accident about their existence by a British relative :!:

I could come to America with you - I speak it and others, and my brother can drive us around from gig to gig and then all of the award ceremonies that will follow. I can share quality time getting to know him, while you get to know your exponentially growing american fanbase, calling upon me to harmonize with you when you will and perhaps throwing in the odd percussion...

Or the odd high C seeing as my range allows for a high D. As a choir girl I learnt many an angelic descant and most if not all Christmassy tunes. My brother could do lovely back up vocals I'm sure, as our father has a beautiful voice and we can jam as we drive...

Or is it because he is just a nice and sweet guy with his heart in the right place ? I don't understand the fame concept other than the reason of people wanting to gain wealth from it. Better to have a wealth of something to give them. Pockets has this.

Of course, hitler also became famous. Name and fame is a very plastic aim and object.
What camera do you use pockets? Did you get help from the forest? Is it help and support that others have access to? Or are only certain types supppoted by the forest. Brag on the web when you have actually done something of world service and not some plastic video for kids and adult kids.
Anyway, I wish you all the best, I really do. And others, ALL others. Once you are in holywood sleeping with the rich and famous, perhaps we can all get access to the forest equipment and not have someone in there who fills their own pockets. Or am I talking about others here? I don't claim to be an expert on forest intestines, but the function of intestines is to reject.
Peace and good fortune to ALL

Wait a second, your poxy, nebulous arguments and petty gripes have stalled so far you are now reduced to associating Pockets with Hitler and then you pathetically pepper the rest of your post with peace and loveims in a misguided attempt to gain some moral high ground.
Maybe and it is just a maybe I'm guessing your quarrel has something to do with your personality.
Worse than all of this your a sodding bore. Cease the trait.

Oh do give it a rest Spark.... Why are you always assuming the worst about everything and everyone and being so bloody negative? Would you rather the Forest shut down and turned into another Starbucks? I mean, you make Pockets sound like some kind of power-crazed megalomaniac intent on world domination...

I am a little knowledgeable with intestines, I have had that many digestives issues, and I would use the words absorbtion and filtering.
Filtering what is good for the body from what is to be rejected, finally. I am still eating only green things but am doing this Butekyo breathing course beginning this week for my hyperventilating or tendency to breathe out way more CO2 than I breathe in O. It is very common but usually is given a whole stack of many different names due to all of the problems you get from inadequate breathing. Smooth muscles, like those that form the organs such as intestines require CO2...and the heart. Heartburn often is usually inappropriate breathing, also panic attacks ie thinking the bad is going to occur is from inadequate breathing. There are about 20 others...the brain's arteries dialate only from enough CO2...

I think amelia was demonstrating a tried and true tactic used in the online world to deal with trolls:
Pick up some little piece of what they've written and derail the thread like crazy. Ignore aforementioned troll and give prizes for the most amusing derailment. Repeat until you get bored or realise you're supposed to be working/doing something productive.

Pockets, I suggest that you and I should hang out as I am ridiculously famous too. Take a look around the Forest and you'll see posters of people trying to hunt me down so they can bask in my glorious and sensual fame. Most of them want to touch me inapropriately which is a prospect I am both scared and aroused by. If you want to hang out and talk down at the non famous losers then let me know.

More questions?
Where do you take it next? Or do you wait and see what offers come?
U tube is new yet seems to convert to TV invites which perhaps says something about u tube, if that is where the TV invite came from, is it?
Sorry if I am not being negative today folks, actually, pockets may shake my hand one day and thank me for keeping his feet on the ground.
Anyway, stop stealing pocket's thunder and going off topic, especially you negative types. :lol:
