I really enjoy machinima and read Moviewatch everytime, but why are there so many music videos? This isn't a shot at the column, just a random outcry to the community.I'd love to see more like Blind (for cool factor) and NubTales (for comedy factor) and less like MTV ripoffs. :/

Wait, what?MTV has music again?
There's not THAT much stuff around. We have to do with what we have, even if that means recycling overused MTV ripoff machinimas.Also, more WoWCrendor!

Apparently it's much easier to rehash something old than it is to create something new. As evidenced by the way that most of these music videos are simply trying to emulate the same exact formula that pop music videos have been using for decades now. Most of the time they're not even making their own music; they're just (often poorly) constructing loosely WoW-related lyrics on top of some other, much more popular, recording artist's melody. Then they use the same stable of stock animations to edit together scenes of characters doing /say or /yell emotes into the camera, between scenes of random combat scenes or half naked toons using /dance. Pull something out of the filter effects menu on your video editor to lay on top of everything... and that's how you make a Moviewatch article feature video. :P
