so why don't you just buy the video?

well, at least you admit your not a musician...

really, the term "poser" was coined for this sentiment.
i personally am not interested in adding theater to my music performances.
(not that there's anything wrong with that)

if i were to do that, i would probably collaborate with someone who could 
make it their focus.

but once you do so, you shouldn't try to separate yourself from the 80's 
metal guy with long
hair and a wind machine holding a power chord, striking a rockstar pose 
and grimacing menacingly.
after all, that's all he is doing...
(not that there's anything wrong with that)

btw, it was no accident that the first video on mtv was "video killed the 
radio star"
most of the modern audience is more interested in visuals than in music.
i find the general audiences preoccupation with visuals somewhat akin to
people who can't read a book without pictures.
