How to play audio & video clips in these Vol. 1 PDF files
Updates for Coach
Says, Vol. 1, issue ii
Reader 9.4.0 changed the way Reader asks the user's (your)
permission to play audio files:
- You must
first click the speaker icon in an attempt to get one of my audio clips
to play. Then, a yellow bar appears
across the screen with the cautionary "Some features have
been disabled to avoid potential security risks. Only enable these
features if you trust this document."
On the right side of this bar is a drop down menu called "Options": Click
on "Options," then select either option
to enable audio clips to play.
- Unfortunately, if
you have already allowed Full Screen Mode because
asks you to allow Full Screen Mode when you first open
the Coach Says, Vol. 1, issue ii document, when
you later click the speaker icon to play an audio clip, this yellow bar
does not appear.
So, you must click your computer's Escape key to return
to Non-Full Screen Mode, click the speaker
icon again, and then (and only then!) does that yellow bar appear.
Click that same drop down menu called "Options," select either
option. Then, click the speaker again, and all the audio clips will function
this issue's editorial "Stand-Up Comic as
Gunslinger," page 1-14, I compare/contrast Richard
Boone's character Paladin in the top-rated "Have Gun - Will
TV adult Western (1957-1963) with the character of a current top
Keynote Speaker and that of a top Stand-Up Comic.
This, to prove that the archetypical hero is both valid and necessary
to our times and to these related three art forms.
To illustrate the point, I cited selected episodes of HGWT.
I released this issue of Coach
Says on 8-12-09, most of these episodes were
available to view online for free.
About a year later, one of our readers, who had been watching these freebie
episodes, alerted me that they are suddenly no longer
available on CBS.com, IMDB.com and not even the $2/episode ones on Amazon.com
Therefore, links to these web sites from Coach
Says, Vol. 1, issue ii, did not work
on pages 6, 7, and 11-13.
The usual suspect is the Hollywood Remake Machine.
Remakes almost always suffer by comparison to the original. Therefore,
producers of remakes often take action to make access to the original

Free as we speak, current through March 15, 2014, 10:15 am:
Youtube.com had some sliced up episodes; so, to
avoid frustration, do make sure you find the complete 25 minutes
before you start watching.
Alert: video quality is a bit soft so DVD is much better for
seeing sharp focus on Boone's face as it filled a TV screen circa 1957
to reveal telling details of expression, eye-twinkling, etc.
HGWT Seasons 1-3 can still (hopefully) be rented on DVD, which
is a much
superior viewing experience, especially if watched on a TV (intended

2) Block Busters (fee/movie):
Good news: Saturday, March 29, 2014
I found new videos added on youtube.com since November 2013 through March
2014 for all the full episodes of HGWT which I had cited.
So, I undated all the HGWT links.
While I was at it, I went ahead and also updated all the other hyperlinks
Says," Vol. 1, issue ii:
Please report any additional expired HTML links you may find in Coach
Vol. 1, issue ii, so can update them both on this web page and in the issue
Why also update this web page? Because if you have already downloaded the Vol.
1, issue ii . . . to your computer,
. . .
you will need to download it again to access the updated
But you already knew that, right?
