Thanks for posting this man, I like how he gives credit to bands that believe in what they're doing no matter what their actual product is.

only thing, Tim & Eric, at least I don't believe, are lazy. They exist as a contemporary commentary in response to the rest of our media culture. Their show, again my opinion, is a developed (by being undeveloped) satire on the way/content we deliver to each other, Ffom mass market advertisements, network tv, cable access to even office interactions.

My opinion is that Tim & Eric don't work very hard at what they are doing. I think they come up with something and churn it out without refining it, and use what you are describing as a cop out to excuse their laziness. But this is truly a discussion for another time. I actually enjoy the production quality of the CCAA video. So there's that...

I'm glad someone finally said this. Too many people write off "bad" bands as not caring about the music just because they don't like it, and too many people support bands who could really try harder handguns.
