Kent, Carissa, Juan, Jason, Dan and Dong have rocked the house with s massive amount help from Aaron T. (extra keys) and Mr. Daniel K. (Twister of knobs extraordinaire) The video was masterfully edited by Dong.
Also helping out on the video were the-ever-lovely Katie (faux keyboards) and T.C. who both graciously gave up their time to bake in the sun with our wacky band.
And here’s the video!
Please visit their website for band news, concert info, bonus music and captioned pics.

“Now this is one big slice of “Cute Girlie” real estate!”
“I don’t get it, I’ve got the phone right to my ear, but you sound like you’re a million fucking miles away!”
Carissa’s new contract states that the band must be at least 35 feet behind her, when they play.
“Are you sure, Jason? That only looks like 32 feet.”
“When This album comes out, these fuckers can kiss my “Going Solo” ass goodbye.”

Well, we were back at it last Wednesday night. (and we also shot some video) Things went very well. We managed to get a bunch of cool , happenin' video before we lost the light.
We thought we’d try a little performance footage to go along with our impeccable acting from the previous shoot.
Jason was on hand, to up the band’s numbers. (Though he doesn't look happy about it.)
Katie was kind enough to, once again, stand in on keyboards.
We also had the lovely Beth step in to provide some visuals for mean tambourine playing and some background harmony singing.
Dong has been editing this work of art together and it looks terrific. I’m hoping to have this sucker up by the beginning of next week. Get ready to feast your eyes.
After the video was shot, it was on to rehearsing down in Shabby Road Studios. This band just never gets a fucking rest.
And now….More Captioned Pics!!!
“Yes siree Bob! The Cuddly One is back!!!”
“Okay, the singers here and I’m fucking loaded, so we better do this fast?”
“No sweetie. It’s way bigger than it was. I think those pills are working.”
“If my dress were two inches shorter, they’d make me the lead singer of this band.”
Little does Carissa know, but at this very second, all of Dongs friends in Singapore are staring at a close-up of her ass.
“This is just amazing. It’s shaped just like a woman but it only talks when I want it to.”
“That's weird. This site from Singapore has a picture of an ass on it that looks really, really familiar.?
“I am so lucky my bachelor uncle had that whole collection of feather boas hidden in his basement.”
A girl, some booze and a tambourine. That’s a good time just waiting to happen!
Jason has the last beer and he’s prepared to protect it to the death.
“Oh Dong, you’re so fucking beautiful, I’m going to cry. BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!”
“It’s a blessing and a curse, babe.”
The Dan Does Sinatra album will be out this fall at all good record stores near you.
The Schrooms finally begin to take effect.
“Yikes. This beer has gone through me already!”
“I can’t believe it. I got all dressed up in my best suit and I wouldn’t even have my picture in this fucking blog if I weren’t standing next to her magnificent boobs.”
“Honest sweetie, I’ve never even met Katie, I mean this redheaded stranger before in my entire life.
“Is it just me, or am I completely shitfaced?”

This is the band’s new – ultra cool – drum head, designed by Kent.
Well, yesterday was a huge amount of fun. Kent, Dong, Dan and Carissa did a yeoman’s job of being rock stars in the hot, hot sun. Never have three guys and two gals looked so cool while sweating so profusely into their clothes.
Most of the footage for the video was completed yesterday. There are only a few awe-inspiring scenes of dazzling visual spectacle left to be recorded. We’ll be doing some extra stuff on Wednesday, when Jason can be with us. (He was too busy giggin’ to attend)
Carissa (our star) was a real sport. (Well, let’s face it, with this band, she has to be a sport 24/7)
“You want me to do WHAT???”
Plus, we could not have done this without the invaluable help from two of Carissa’s victims….we mean friends.
A very special thanks to Katie for being in our video. She was also a great sport. And a pretty darned good fake keyboard player.
And to T.C. for crowding into a very small toilet with six other people and for helping out behind the scenes.
And I’d like to thank everyone involved who did such a great job clearing out that oodles and oodles of space in my crowded fridge where the beer used to be.
The raw video is now the in extraordinarily capable hands of Dong who so expertly edited our last video together. Stay tuned! The world premier will be soon!
P.S. This will give you a clue to what the music video is about.
And now….More Captioned Pics!
Carissa finally spots the “Nudity Requirement” in her oh-so-lengthy music video contract.
After waiting for over an hour for Kent to come out of the bathroom, those who are desparately waiting discuss the logistics of all using the toilet at the same time.
“Wait a minute. Four of us went in there. Did anyone see Carissa after we flushed?”
“Ah, it was, ah, probably caused by a sudden gust of wind.”
Carissa enjoys a typical Snoop Dog breakfast.
Hey, get a load of the headlights on that babe!
This is Dan, two and a half sips of Heineken away from needing a stretcher and paramedics.
“God this is fucking freezing. Oh well, at least Darrell can’t take a picture of my wet ass, like this.”
“Here is a picture of Carrisa’s wet ass.”
“Yeah, I’ve seen these guys naked.”
“You’re really pretty. Can I come back after I finish throwing up and hit on you some more?”
“Are humans really capable of snoring that loud?”
“What?! I Can’t hear you!”
“Dear mom. You were right about L.A. Right at this very moment I have this really creepy Asian guy looking down my top.”
While shooting was going on, we had several celebrities drop by. Here is that guy from the cover of the Monopoly game.
“What? And give up show business?”
While Carissa works on her motivation for the next crucial scene, the boys watch Diaper Porn on the internet.
“I don’t get it. All the guys wanted me to do today is take off all my clothes and drink a lot of beer. Why would they want me to do that?”
“Mine are the only boobs around here that these guys are going to stare at. Got that Missy?”
During a brief break in the shooting, Katie takes a moment to have a quick orgasm.
“This is just how I want to deliver my first child.”
“Why Dong, I can’t explain it, but I’m strangely drawn to the shapely contours of your underarms.”
“Shit, I’d better do this quick before Darrell takes another super-unflattering picture of me.”
And our first video is here - should you wish to take a gander.
