FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, The Tube Media Corp., a Delaware corporation whose address is 1451 W. Cypress Creek Rd., Suite 300, FL 33309 (“Borrower”), promises to pay to Dr. Robert Alan Kast, (“Lender”), whose address is 21875 Cartagena Drive, Boca Raton, Florida 33428, the principal sum of $300,000.00, with annual interest thereon calculated in accordance with the terms and provisions provided below. All sums owing under this Note are payable in lawful money of the United States of America.

Interest shall accrued on this Note be payable at a fixed annual rate of 10.0%, until such time as this Note is paid in full.
 
All amounts required to be paid under Lender’s Note shall be payable at Lender’s office located at 21875 Cartagena Drive, Boca Raton, Florida 33428, or at another place as Lender, from time to time, may designate in writing.
 
Interest calculations shall be based on a 360-day year and charged on the basis of actual days elapsed.

The entire unpaid principal balance, together with all accrued interest shall be due and payable in full on the Maturity Date (as defined hereunder).
 
4.
Maturity Date
 
The entire principal balance of this Note, together with all accrued and unpaid interest and fees, shall be due and payable on October 10, 2007 (“Maturity Date”), unless otherwise prepaid in accordance with the terms of this Note.
 
5.

None
 
6.
Prepayment; Subsequent Financing.
 
Borrower may prepay the whole or any portion of this Note on any date, upon five days’ notice to Lender. Lender shall be entitled to receive repayment in full of Borrower’s obligations hereunder out of the funds of Borrower within thirty (30) days of the closing of any subsequent financing of Borrower (whether completed as a debt or equity financing) resulting in gross proceeds to Borrower equal to or greater than $5,000,000.
 

 
7.
Late Charge
 
If any required payment, including the final payment due on the maturity date, is not paid within 15 days from and including the date upon which it was due (whether by acceleration or otherwise), then, in each such event, all past due amounts shall be subject to a late penalty of five (.05) cents on every dollar owed (the “late penalty”). This late penalty shall be in addition to any other interest due as provided for in Paragraph 2 and in addition to all other rights and remedies provided herein or by law for the benefit of the holder on a default. The acceptance of any payment by the holder of the Note shall not act to restrict the holder at all in exercising any other rights under the Note or the law, to waive or release Borrower from any obligations contained herein, or to extend the time for payments due under this Note.
 
8.
Default and Remedies
 
If Borrower fails to pay principal and/or interest on the date on which it falls due or to perform any of the agreements, conditions, covenants, provisions, or stipulations contained in this Note, then Lender, at its option and without notice to Borrower, may declare immediately due and payable the entire unpaid balance of principal with interest from the date of default at the rate of 16% per year and all other sums due by Borrower hereunder anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding. Payment of this sum may be enforced and recovered in whole or in part at any time by one or more of the remedies provided to Lender in this Note. In that case, Lender also may recover all costs in connection with suit, a reasonable attorney’s fee for collection, and interest on any judgment obtained by Lender at the rate of 12% per year.
 
The remedies of Lender and the warrants provided in this Note shall be cumulative and concurrent, and they may be pursued singly, successively, or together at the sole discretion of Lender. They may be exercised as often as occasion shall occur, and failing to exercise one shall in no event be construed as a waiver or release of it.
 
9.
Attorneys’ Fees and Costs
 
Borrower shall pay all attorneys fees in connection with the preparation of this Note.
 
If Lender engages any attorney to enforce or construe any provision of this Note, or as a consequence of any default whether or not any legal action is filed, Borrower immediately shall pay on demand all reasonable attorneys’ fees and other Lender’s costs, together with interest from the date of demand until paid at the highest rate of interest then applicable to the unpaid principal, as if the unpaid attorneys’ fees and costs had been added to the principal.
 

 
10.
Waivers
 
(a) Borrower hereby waives and releases all benefit that might accrue to Borrower by virtue of any present or future laws of exemption with regard to real or personal property or any part of the proceeds arising from any sale of that property, from attachment, levy, or sale under execution, or providing for any stay of execution, exemption from civil process, or extension of time for payment. Borrower agrees that any real estate that may be levied on under a judgment obtained by virtue hereof, on any writ of execution issued thereon, may be sold on any writ in whole or in part in any order desired by Lender.
 
(b) Borrower and all endorsers, sureties, and guarantors jointly and severally waive presentment for payment, demand, notice of demand, notice of nonpayment or dishonor, protest, notice of protest of this Note, and all other notices in connection with the delivery, acceptance, performance, default, or enforcement of the payment of this Note. They agree that each shall have unconditional liability without regard to the liability of any other party and that they shall not be affected in any manner by any indulgence, extension of time, renewal, waiver, or modification granted or consented to by Lender. Borrower and all endorsers, sureties, and guarantors consent to any and all extensions of time, renewals, waivers, or modifications that may be granted by Lender with respect to the payment or other provisions of this Note, and to the release of any collateral or any part thereof, with or without substitution, and they agree that additional borrowers, endorsers, guarantors, or sureties may become parties hereto without notice to them or affecting their liability hereunder.
 
(c) Lender shall not be considered by any act of omission or commission to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder, unless such waiver is in writing and signed by Lender, and then only to the extent specifically set forth in writing. A waiver on one event shall not be construed as continuing or as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy to a subsequent event.
 
(d) Lender hereby waives all past defaults and rights of any kind that Lender has or may have had arising from the past defaults including all fees, expenses, penalties and charges related to such defaults with respect to or in connection with either of two promissory notes executed by the Borrower in Lender’s favor as follows,: (i) dated January 14, 2005, in the aggregate principal amount $150,000.00, as amended by a letter agreement dated April 11, 2006; and (ii) dated August 31, 2005, in the aggregate principal amount of $500,000.00, with a current outstanding principal balance of $200,000.00 (together, the “Former Notes”), and Lender hereby agrees to execute a Satisfaction of Obligations relating to the Former Notes, in the forms attached hereto as Exhibit A and Exhibit B, respectively, and such Former Notes are canceled in full and shall be considered void ab initio with neither party having any liability or obligation hereafter to the other.
 
(e) Lender hereby forgives and releases the Borrower from all consulting fees, and waives payment of any and all other past due compensation, fees, expenses and amounts of any kind that may be owed to Lender now or in the future or rights that Lender has or may have with respect to or in connection with that certain consulting agreement entered into on August 31, 2005, between the Borrower and DKK-RK Enterprises, Inc., a corporate entity owned by, controlled by, or under the control of Lender, attached hereto as Exhibit C, and any and all other consulting arrangements or agreements, whether written or verbal, between Lender and the Borrower.
 

 
11.
Release.
 
Lender hereby remises, releases, and forever discharges the Borrower, its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees and agents of and from all, and all manner of, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, debts, dues, contracts, judgments, damages, claims, and demands whatsoever in law or equity, which the Lender ever had, now has, or which its successors or assigns, hereafter can, shall, or may have for or by reason of any matter, cause, or thing whatsoever, arising from the Lender’s participation as either a lender or shareholder of Borrower prior to the date hereof.
 
12.

13.
Costs and Expenses
 
Borrower shall pay the cost of any revenue tax or other stamps now or hereafter required by law at any time to be affixed to this Note.
 
14.
No Partnership or Joint Venture
 
Nothing contained in this Note or elsewhere shall be construed as creating a partnership or joint venture between Lender and Borrower or between Lender and any other person or as causing the holder of the Note to be responsible in any way for the debts or obligations of Borrower or any other person.
 
15.
Interest Rate Limitation
 
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the holder hereof shall never be entitled to collect or apply as interest on this obligation any amount in excess of the maximum rate of interest permitted to be charged by applicable law. If the holder of this Note ever collects or applies as interest any such excess, the excess amount shall be applied to reduce the principal debt; and if the principal debt is paid in full, any remaining excess shall be paid forthwith to Borrower. In determining whether the interest paid or payable in any specific case exceeds the highest lawful rate, the holder and Borrower shall to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law (a) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee, or premium rather than as interest; (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects of these; and (c) spread the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of the obligation so that the interest rate is uniform throughout the term. Nothing in this paragraph shall be considered to increase the total dollar amount of interest payable under this Note.
 

 
16.

If more than one person signs this Note, each person is fully and personally obligated to keep all of the promises made in this Note, including the promise to pay the full amount owed. Any person who is a guarantor, surety or endorser of this Note is also obligated to do these things. Any person who takes over these obligations, including the obligations of a guarantor, surety or endorser of this Note is also obligated to keep all of the promises made in this Note. The Note Holder may enforce its rights under this Note against each person individually or against all of us together. This means that any one of us may be required to pay all of the amounts owed under this Note.
