The Peanut Gallery and Making a Carving Knife
Where did the word peanut gallery come from?
Oh wait, here it is -
"we will not tolerate comments from the peanut gallery," said the announcer.
Here's my definition: comments from douche bags focusing on insignificant details.
The reason I bring this up is because the fellow below made a terrific video on making a carving knife. He took the time to post it on YouTube, which brought out - you guessed it - the peanut gallery.
I've had experience with that: two years ago I put a video on YouTube about sculpting wood. And I got so many negative comments from the peanut gallery (i.e. - douche bags) that I took the video down. It just wasn't worth it to hear all their crap about how I didn't know what I was doing, or I was sure to lose a finger, blah, blah, blah. Haters gonna hate!
The same thing happened to the guy below - so after you watch the video on YouTube, look at his comments below. I think he pretty much nails it.
Hat's off to this guy - I think the video is terrific, and even though I don't need a carving knife, I am tempted to make one just because he made it look so fun.
