LUMBER JACK SHOW FROM THE STATE FAIR? FEELING INADEQUATE RIGHT NOW. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE FLANNEL FLING. IF IT IS, I’M THERE. IS THAT THE DEGREE OF MASCULINITY REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT? SOMEONE LITERALLY GOOGLED FLANNEL AND FLINGING AND THEY FOUND THAT GUY. IT IS THE MOST LITERAL INTERPRETATION. THIS IS THE HOST OF HGTV AND DIY NETWORK’S BATH CRASHERS AND A BIG TIME VIDEO PRODUCTION GURU. I’M EVOLVING, AREN’T I? I’M GETTING OLD. TRANSLATION, I’M GETTING OLD. I’M IN CHARGE OF STUFF.

THIRD ANNUAL. IT’S TAKEN ROOT, WHICH IS GREAT. THIS IS A CASUAL GALA. WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING THIS AT THE MACHINE SHOP. IT’S TONIGHT. IT’S FOR AN ORGANIZATION CALLED REBUILDING TOGETHER, WHICH I’VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH FOR YEARS. REBUILDING TOGETHER IS TWIN CITIES, IT’S THE 20th YEAR, WHICH IS AWESOME. 20 YEARS THEY’VE DONE OVER 1000 PROJECTS IN THE MINNEAPOLIS AREA. WHAT DO THEY DO EXACTLY? THEY DO PROJECTS WITHIN HOMES. FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE. IT’S FOR PEOPLE, LOW INCOME, ELDERLY, VETERANS RETURNING BACK HOME. REALLY JUST GOING INTO NEIGHBORHOODS AND MAKING ESSENTIAL REPAIRS TO HOMES SO THAT THESE PEOPLE CAN STAY. STAY IN THEIR OWN HOME. THIS IS STUFF THAT PEOPLE NEED DONE. THIS ISN’T WHAT I’VE BEEN GUILTY OF DOING FOR THE LAST DECADE OR SO. WE’RE NOT DOING A $50,000 BATHROOM. WE MIGHT BE PUTTING IN GRAB BARS TO MAKE IT SAFE. THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING PROJECTS. HUGE. WE DID A BIG ONE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO IN SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS NEIGHBORHOOD. WE DID SIX HOUSES, A COMMUNITY GARDEN. EVERYONE GOT INVOLVED. THERE WERE 100 VOLUNTEERS. IT JUST FEELS GOOD. SO THE GALA IS ALL ABOUT RAISING SOME MONEY. WE’LL HAVE COOL LIVE AUCTION. WE’LL EAT REALLY WELL. THE MACHINE SHOP I’M TOLD IS COOL. MUCH STUFFIER WHEN I’VE BEEN THERE. TO DO IT WITH FLANNEL. IT’S THURSDAY NIGHT. YOU DON’T — GO HOME AND TAKE OFF THE SUIT, PUT ON A COMFY SHIRT. COME DOWN. HAVE SOME FOOD, DRINK, THERE’S STILL SOME TABLES AVAILABLE. YOU CAN GO ONLINE. BID ON SOME ITEMS. BUY SOME TICKETS. THERE’S A COUPLE TICKETS LEFT. STANDING ROOM TICKETS ARE THERE. THIS IS THE MOST MINNESOTAN WAY TO RAISE MONEY. PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO DRESS UP ALL THE TIME. THEY WANT TO WEAR THEIR FLANNEL, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S COLDER. IT’S GOING TO SNOW TOMORROW. GET COMFY. COME ON DOWN. WE’LL RAISE MONEY. THE VOLUNTEERING PART IS GREAT, BUT WE NEED TO FUND THE PROJECTS TO WE CAN REACH MORE PEOPLE. 1000 PROJECTS OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS. 10,000 VOLUNTEERS. LET’S KEEP DOING MORE OF IT. THAT’S WHY I’M HERE. WE ONLY HAVE ABOUT 15 SECONDS LEFT. YOU JUST WANT TO KEEP TALKING? KIM DIDN’T EVEN GET A WORD IN. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLAID AND FLANNEL? THICKNESS OF MATERIAL I’M GOING TO GO WITH. CAN YOU WEAR PLAID AT THIS THING? IT’S ENCOURAGED. I’M WEARING FLANNEL, YOU JUST DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT. [ LAUGHTER ]
