    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I remember when MTV actually played music videos 24 hours a day. It was the best thing ever. Now it sucks bacci balls.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I don't even know what channel it's on. I don't like much of today's music, much less the videos.

    I remember when MTV started. I liked to watch video after video. I remember a vid by Tom Petty was one of my favorites, along with "I'm Special" by The Pretenders, Bryan Adams singing while a girl in a bikini jumped into an empty swimming pool. I also thought some of the original V-Jays were interesting- Martha Quinn and Nina Blackwood.

    I'm guessing music vids don't drive music sales like they did in when MTV played music [in the 80's]. And therefore, it's not cost effective to produce as many music vids? I wouldn't know now. Couldn't tell you the last time I bought new music in any format. Now get off my lawn.

    Yeah... Martha Quinn, Daisy Fuentes, "Downtown" Julie Brown.

    Apropos Martha Quinn...

    The first time I saw MTV was on a hotel TV back in the 80s. It had to be pre 1983 as we were on a trip from Dallas to Corpus to visit my grandparents, so within a year or two of that fateful day in 1981 when MTV introduced the world to The Buggles.

    The last time I saw the music video version of MTV was the early 80's. I'm somewhat philosophically opposed to music videos anyways. I think they interfere with your own interpretation of the music. YouTube took over the role of music video releases.

    Unfortunately, they also spread the influence of Pauley Shore.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I used to think the poplarizing of Jenny McCarthy was a fair trade off for more Pauly Shore exposure, but I was a dumb teenager then. Now she's gone psycho anti-vaxer with a quadruple digit body count (sorry if that strays into P&R territory) and I've grown nostalgic for Encino Man and Son-in-Law (though much of the latter is due to the fact that I still think Carla Gugino is kind of hot).

    Back then, I worked at a start-up film colorizing company. Their first colorized product was the colorizing on this.



    Later they became Ted Turner's toy.
