Late Night with Conan O'Brien (April 12, 1996)
There's this Kids In the Hall newsgroup and it's pretty much the
titles of things are like: "That Bastard Dave", "I Hate Dave",
"Hating That Bastard Dave."
note: Please note this is a DEAD topic in the newsgroup. If you
want to know the events which surrounded the interview and the
aftermath, just search Deja.Com.
Don't bring it up in the newsgroup.
If you are lazy, then in short, there were about 4 people (::waving
hand:: hello!) who said some *non-positive* things about Dave
and his distancing from his work on Kids in the Hall. There was
never "Bastard Dave" threads or any blame of Dave for
the end of KITH. If Dave did read the newsgroup, he knew this
and it is therefore presumable that Dave was being sarcastic and
meant his comments to be funny.
the aftermath of the interview there were "Bastard Dave"
titled threads; if you read Deja, don't confuse these with anything
that happened before the interview. These threads were comments
on the interview, fandom, etc. and were, in fact, supportive of
Dave. Two posters who were among the previous 4 (hello again!)
took on the persona of "Dave Haters" for a while. It
is presumable that they were being sarcastic and meant these posts
to be funny.
Nobody hated Dave. Topic over. Don't bring it up again.
