This (These? They?) is TrueNuff TV! As a matter of fact, it's all of TrueNuff - which is, in fact, inclusive of TrueNuff TV! and TrueNuff Comic.
The members of the TrueNuff Crew (of which I have been a member) have been trying to be as funnya s they can on the internet since 2001. It started with a webcomic which is technically still publishing and a scant five years later was followed shortly by a video sketch series which is technically still comedy.
Being in this band with my closest friends has been as great an adventure and a learning experience as I have ever experienced. I had to step away when I left the side of the country that they were living in, but since returning to the west coast I still get the chance to drop in a "make shit" with these awesome dudes. Output has waned but I certainly couldn't be more proud of some of the stuff we created together (the rest of it, I could take or leave.)
We bought a piano. Somebody in the house is going to play it.
Maybe this happened, maybe it's a joke I've told so many times I forget that I made it up. Either way, I spent well over a decade studying the piano pretty much becuase I was the last of my sibling to propose quitting to do something else. That said, it's clear that it was theg reatest gift my family ever forced upon me.
The scales tipped in late in my high school years when I traded taking lessons against my will to late-night band rehearsals against my parents' wishes. Since then we've found an easy truce.
Through music I've seen virtually the entirety of Canada, the Caribbean, tour the USA and Alaska, met some of the greatest friends and inspirations of my life and even made a buck here and there.
