Are they the next big thing or a mere flash-in-the-pan? We don't know, so we've decided to hedge our bets by featuring "Cute Is What We Aim For" in this week's blog. Good for us!
CiWWAF hail from Buffalo, NY, and have just released their second LP, Rotation. This week's video "Practice Makes Perfect," is from the new album, and it tells the story of a guy--lead singer Shaant Hacikyan--who ends up making time with a hot babe at a party. Unexpectedly, his girlfriend walks in on the whole sordid scene, at which point time goes backwards… just like music itself has done!... and he gets another crack at doing the right thing. To his credit, the guy behaves himself in the replay, and all ends well.
Needless to say, this week we're really curious what our esteemed readers think. Is this the most preposterous video ever? Or not? Is the song itself a laughable mess, or is it the greatest tune in the history of popular culture? Or is it somewhere in between?
See you next week!
1 — "Let's see… making a video would be pointless… the song itself is a joke… I guess it would be logical to just get out of this business altogether."
2 — It's time for Framed
fun!! Let's meet some CiWWAF fans and engage them in meaningful conversation! Or… maybe not!

4— Hey, now! You appear to be one CiWWAF fan that's been "bowled" over! Do you get it?
5 — To be fair, the sun had to go nova sometime
6 — "OK, that confirms it. In addition to being phenomenally bad-looking, I also don't know how to dress myself."
7 — "Why, this cup of cold twine hits the spot!"
8 — "Drink! Drink, I say, to shamelessly
ripping off Counting Crows!"
9 — "So the Zen Buddhist says to the hot dog vendor, 'Make me one with everything!'"

11 — "C'mon. Make me 'one'
with everything? Jeez."
12 — "I will suck up all
the oxygen in emo-dom! This
is my sacred vow!"
