I figured this would be the best place to put this.

I ran across this website, and it's funny. It gets only slightly offensive at times (mainly language), but it's also damn funny at the same time.

I hadn't seen it in about a year. Looks like they change the shots up from time to time...

Ha...recognized one band...

...future wife and I went on a double date with the singer and his gf about a decade ago...

I like how he constantly points out that being in a band does not make one a bada$$...I've never really understood why people think that it does.:rolleyes:

I've always avoided getting talked into doing any promo shots, because I don't think I'd be good at it. Same with weddings. Not good at giving people direction on how to stand, where to look etc. But after looking at some of those, I may have the ability to do so.

"Brick wall bald guy is the bassist and sole light source."

Does that mean it counts as off-camera lighting?

Brick wall thing got old at the beginning, but I like the , "Don't tell Lars". Funny since me and my friends were just talking about that. :lol:
