    I know I hark on about sexism and prejudice in general rather a lot but I can't help wonder if he would have got the kids if they swapped genders. It just seems mad to me that the person who destroyed the children's stable environment gets to be the one to look after them.
    Still we know nothing of the situation so there's no point in discussing it really.

    The video seemed heartfelt, driven by emotion however the explanation not very well thought out.
    My thoughts exactly.

    The guy is going through shit, regardless of rumors, insinuations and your personal opinions on what is right and wrong with the legal system, the guy is reaching out. Reaching out to the viewers (read: most/many of us) asking for a hand. Who knows who is viewers all are? Maybe there are some big name DJs making piles of disposable income that may feel like they owe him for all of the help. Dudes videos are top notch. He's got a way of teaching that drew me right in, I've learned a lot from him. Let's stop arguing over why he needs the money, it won't serve any good. If you can help him, great. If not, no need to drag out arguments over things we know nothing about. This video saddens me, but it happens to so many people. Send money, or your thoughts to him, don't drag him through the dirt.

    Heres a link to donate.. If u feel hes taught u a skill at some point, give him a few bucks for it..

    He really does cover basic skills very well.. Most tutorials gloss over stuff just expecting u to know it and as a beGinner, u usually dont know it and are left with gaps/question marks.

    So heres the link:
    http://www.djtutor.com/donate

    I gave him 25 usd which i felt was the value i took away from some vids a while back.

    Well consider this. The show is done at his house, the show is done with his equipment, with his time for FREE. All of that can be gone if everything just disappears in an instant. Hes not exactly a company or a business, hes not making any money off of his video, no ads from youtube or anything.

    Should he start doing some of these things, such as asking for donations, or doing ads? At this point why the hell not. I think hes proven to the whole community for being in the game to just play music and show people his love for DJing. You make it out like hes a corporation. Hes a guy in his house who makes videos that help millions of people.

    I received a response from Ellaskins buddy Tony, who I think is the guy who is always on the road with him to gigs?



    Thanks, we might set up a paypal account specially for donations to buy J's house in a week or two.
    We can already take donations to DJ Tutor : longtone@djtutor.com
    or: www.djtutor.com/donate

    J is a YT partner, and it does bring in some cash, but nowhere near enough to buy out his stbx

    Surely this guy could make some decent moneys playing out live, someone would offer him a top residency! But I get the impression he doesn't really play Live anymore?
