Chicago Yesterday Night

As at least a good three or four people are now aware, we made an appearance on the Chicago PBS Station, WTTW, on their program "Chicago Tonight" last evening, apparently on purpose and with the full knowledge of the station managers.

I present for your viewing pleasure and/or amusement, definitive proof that we definitely have a television presence custom made for blogging. In that spirit, to optimize your viewing experience, feel free to mute the sound and leave the room for approximately 8 minutes and 30 seconds.

Although somewhat unconventional, this step is necessary for the video segment to age properly, and is really allows us to come off at our best.

If, on the other hand, you can't really wait for us to edit and process the footage, and absolutely dying to see us act foolish and tongue-tied right now, just go ahead and click.

Although if you actually snicker out loud (or even if you don't for that matter), hit the PayPal button, so we can hire skilled personnel to do this sort of thing.

And if you're really dying to know, here's some evidence of historical punk, or punk-like activities. If nothing else, I suppose you can see that we came by our lack of talent honestly, and have continued pursuing it all these years.

Okay, okay, you've slogged through all the way through 187 words of this post thus far, so here's some bonus bonus material - the second bonus is added to reflect that the bonus material is actually good this time (so good in fact, that we don't have anything at all to do with it).

a) Of very high production value and involves significantly better animation than you're ever likely to see me do

b) Is an effort involving way more than 4 musicians, and much more studio time

c) Reflects many of the thematic elements, both literally and metaphorically, encountered in our trip to Chad

d) Has a much, much, larger budget. Much larger. Much larger. Much Much Larger. Hint. Hint. (that was subtle, wasn't it?)

e) All of the above
