The videos

All right, all right, stop clamoring for videos. For technical reasons, the videos previously produced for this site are not currently available. Six of them were preserved at the other You Don’t Say site, for which links can be found below. I hope that they will appease your hunger until I can get around to making more.

The bow tie video

The martini video

The pronunciation video

The second pronunciation video

The judging-a-book-by-its-cover video

The copy-editor’s temperament video

Yum, martini time it is.

The second pronunciation video link is broken. I found the page with the video however the video is missing. I hope it's still available somewhere...

I've replaced the link to the second pronunciation video, which should be OK.

More than okay--it's perfect!

Wonderful. Thank you.

I hope we will see more pronunciation videos from you, John.

Ahh, how much I love the Luh-Vuhl pronunciation.

Dagnabit! Those sites trigger this response:
