Severe Tire Damage Video Time-Wasters

It's not easy filling an hour show every Wednesday night. So Severe Tire Damage has created a few videotape segments to kill time between sets. Here are a few that have been converted to QuickTime movies. They've all been sampled at only four frames per second to minimize the load so you can effectively waste time. Proactive slacking: from the only band that really cares, Severe Tire Damage.

Band on Demand
A fake video made on May 15, 1999. In a gratuitous attempt to be on the Internet 24/7/365, Severe Tire Damage invented "Band On Demand". Live video from our website would show us patiently sitting around, waiting for someone to choose a song, at which time the band would race downstairs to play it. Another stupid idea from Severe Tire Damage. Until Terry Winograd requested some Severe Tire Damage video of Mark Weiser for SIGCHI '99 (Computer-Human Interaction). The Band On Demand concept almost fit SIGCHI and it was Mark's first posthumous appearance for the band, so we added Terry's request for the song "Pincushion Boy".
