There are probably more TVs than houses or cars in modern western society and many people spend several hours a day sat in front of their screens consuming the excrement of the TV industry but is this a good or a bad thing?

Personally, I choose not to have a telly so I have more control over the media I absorb. Is anyone else in this position? Or maybe you couldn't live without yours?

This video examines the topic and is also a chance to see me getting attacked by ninjas and rapping in the bath. Enjoy.

Cool song. Where'd you get the equipment or such a professional song?

Cheers dude. There was no budget for this song and all the instruments are played live apart from the drums which were programmed (although most of our stuff uses live drums too). We have access to some nice mics from my mate's work and a vocal booth at my other mate's studio and we used Logic software. You can get good results without a fancy studio set up nowadays.

Yeah the drummer looked uninterested. Where did you get the cameras? The video quality is really good.

Tv is for Social People. Tv is too much advanced for people like Me.

Bright Lights of LCD's hurt my eyes.

I usually just end up watching C-span.

I like meet the press, but I usually watch it on the internet.

Also Pawn Stars on the history channel; I've always wanted to run my own pawn shop, so it's a pretty cool show in my book.

ha ha yeah he does a bit doesn't he. I'll put that partly down to the fact he was woken up minutes before his scene. We had a gig the night before the shoot and were all really knackered.

Where did you get the cameras? The video quality is really good.

Ah well that's all down to the director Chris, who basically made the video at his own expense (well, I put in forty quid and a few of the guys chipped in too but pretty much). He's made a few short films before but this is his first music vid and he had a concept he wanted to do for our song so we basically just did what he told us to do to make it happen.

He's connected enough to borrow the fancy cameras and lights and assemble a team of professionally skilled volunteers, so all credit has to go to him for the visuals.

Dude, awesome.

I miss beats that use real instruments--it seems as though electronic noises are today's in. It was a nice breather.

Hope you make it big!

Remind me again AskBob, how does the piracy fit in with the whole Christianity "thou shalt not steal" thing?
