Mtv = Dead 2 Me…

mtv logo

When was the last time that Mtv really mattered? For me it would have been the Jackass years. That was the last time that I watched Mtv with regularity. That was the last time I think that network was truly, ughh, relevant. Since that time I feel like Vh-1 has come through with the edgier programming that wasn’t so artificially funny. Let’s not get it twisted either because Vh-1 is definitely superficial, just not artificial and there is an important difference.

The fart jokes and college humor that made Beavis and Butthead a staple of television entertainment have been replaced by cheap staged stunts and shit that old people would find funny. If old people like your joke then 9 out of 10 times your joke sucks. Not to disparage old people and the people that think like old people, but we are not you. We used to be down with you but we stayed youthful and humorous. You got old and boring. This is why Adult Swim pwns empty-V all day every day.

Mtv was jammed up a few years back when confronted with the fact that they were over twenty five years old. While that doesn’t really matter to me since I am long since past that mark it matters to those that use superficial timeline constructs. Vh-1 has no such problem. Their demographic was always post-teenage anyhoo. It was Mtv that made the mistake of marketing itself to 16yr olds instead of realizing that market was fickle in the first place.

The last thing a 16yr old wants to do is some shit that OTHER 16yr olds are doing. Mtv could have let one of their sub-channels be the place where the JONAS brothers had the unplugged concerts instead of the main channel which needed to stay in the adult themed realm of music entertainment. I’m sure that Mtv execs had been shitting their pants ever since rap music became a pop music juggernaut. There weren’t enough videos from emasculated rap acts like the Black Eyed Peas to fill up their programming slots.

Now that rappers are wearing their younger sisters stretch jeans maybe they can get some spins on the video channel if only the video channel still played videos. I’d love to be a consultant to the Music TeleVision network. Lord knows they don’t have anyone over there that is willing to kick open the doors to the executive suites and beat the crap out of the current programmers. Everyone is simply content to keep their mouths shut and just collect their checks. Pretty soon the bottom will fall out of that game and then you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone.

    the first video they ever played was Video Killed the Radio Star.

    Internets Killed the Video Star, we just need a theme song.

    MTV where they recycle their recycled. I mean seriously, we already have 20+ installments of “The Real World” (aka “Epic Fail for the Black Male”) and then they put these same hacks on the Real World/Road Rules Challenges, and all the other reality schlock… Seriously they’ve huffin’ their own exhaust fumes for years….

    AND TRUE TO FORM, THE WHITE BOY RAPPERS’ 2 BIG BLACK GOONS ARE THERE TO CLEAN THINGS UP AND USHER HIM OUT TO SAFETY ……. AND NO DOUBT GIVE HIM A GOOD SUCKING OFF IN THE EMINEM TRAILER OUT THE BACK B4 GOING TO SMOKE A DOOBIE AND POP CHAMPAGNE WITH COHEN BACKSTAGE IN THE GREEN ROOM ……. When will people learn (especially black people), that this dude is an outright racist biggot that is using hiphop to get away with his non-sense and get rich while his at it, just like Cohen did at the beginning of his career in the UK (when he used the character Ali G to get at arabs and blacks, and now Bruno to get at Germans ….. remember Sacha Baron Cohen is JEWISH ….. just as Em uses hiphop).
    The saddest part of this is, the so called hiphop intellectuals like BYRON CRAWFORD, still haven’t cottoned on to it and STILL believe that Em is “cutting edge cool”.

    I dunno about you Dallas but in Bols case, I guess we’ll have to sit back and wait till it slaps him in the face like the Zionist issue with that DJ-whats-his-face and his lobbyist father.

    But some day someone will see the light.

    I have been trying to figure out did Vh1 get better or did I turn 30?

    The stories I can tell about MTV but am legally precluded from sharing.

  7. MTV died to me when Half Hour Comedy Hour and Yo! MTV Raps did. Brief resurrection with Pimp My Ride, but I haven’t been an avid MTV guy in 14 years.

    And when you know their Fear of a Black Man history (not just MJ…go read about Ray Parker Jr.’s “The Other Woman”). you’ll let them stew in their Hillsy, Real Worldsy cesspool with a wrong-spirited smile.

    R.I.P> DILLA DAWG! As far as MTV…I stopped watching after they took off The Lyricist Lounge Show off the air. How dope was it when they made the video for Thirstin’s “I Still Live with my MOms”..who would of thought Lo Lives would of been on tv along with Mos, Words and other greats. MTV..just like Hip officially DEAD!
