Dave Burba has made his first public appearance since 2006.
If you were watching STO when Burba paid the visit, consider yourself one of the fortunate ones. I, myself, am unfortunately not in this special fraternity of viewers. At the moment, I cannot even formulate words to describe how tortured I am by that fact.
I refuse to give up though. I can't give up. If an idol of Burba's made a rare TV appearance and he missed it, would he just say "oh well, too bad?" No way -- he would fight. He would fight like the warrior he is (actually, I can't even imagine that Dave Burba has any heroes -- who could that man possibly look to for guidance or inspiration besides himself?).
The bottom line is that I need to see this video folks. I plan on not only posting it to this site but also transcribing Burba's words to use as my own personal manifesto.
So here is what I'm proposing: if anyone out there can upload the Burba segment onto the web and send it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), I will in return mail them a very special prize. What's the prize? Well, I searched long and hard to find a suitable gift and have decided to go ahead and sacrifice my very own DVD copy of Doogie Howser, M.D: Season Four. Below is a picture for proof:
From personal experience I can honestly say, season four was pretty solid. Among other things, Doogie buys a gun, performs his first solo surgery and finally moves out of his parent's house for a loft in Venice Beach. All in all, its a good watch.
So there you have it, Doogie for Dave. If you can send me the video I will send you 4 discs of kid doctor bliss (because I only have one copy, only the first sender will receive the prize).
Finally, while I wait to view the Burba video, please feel free to post any information about the appearance in the comments section of this post. Quotes, Burba's demeanor, emotions you personally felt while watching, whatever you want. I need your help guys. Thanks. Viva la Burba!
