Old School MTV Style

28 Jun

Honestly, whatever happened to the days when music videos were appreciated with their own 24/7 channel representation?

You could wake up to music videos and go to sleep to music videos and learn all the moves in between. Now MTV and VH1 are jam-packed with orange people from New Jersey and pregnant teenagers. Last time I checked though it is still called MTV for Music TV and VH1 stands for Video Hits One right? (yeah…maybe I had to Google it). 

I feel like going to YouTube to find the latest videos is kind of exhausting and when I get in that cleaning mood I want some non-stop music with a little theatre thrown in, to do the dishes and laundry to. I understand that there is MTV channels 2- 200 now that offer music videos but it isn’t standard for those who can’t afford those extra channels in their everyday lives. I think they should switch the endless replays of True Life, Teen Mom and Made to MTV channels 2-200 and leave the original MTV as it was in its purest straight video form.

 I mean kids are learning about how to get pregnant and overcome their fears instead of how to rock to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” (these are important life lessons being thrown to the wayside!! ) Poor kids these days.

 Unfortunately, I don’t have much say in how things are run up there in NYC at MTV’s headquarters, so for now I guess I’ll just have to remain limited and be thankful once a week on Saturday morning there is VH1’s Top 20 countdown on my basic cable to watch.

Karaoke Crap

10 Jun

I'm with Fred.

So there is something in this world that I absolutely do NOT understand at all… and would love for someone to explain it to me…

What is the fascination with Karaoke?

WHY is it popular to take a good song sung by a good singer and complete destroy it… usually by drunken and terrible singers who don’t always necessarily know the words.

And I’m sure at this point you are thinking well she’s just never tried it she doesn’t know what she is missing. But I HAVE tried it! Additionally, I have tried it at the highest most drastic and death-defying level. What are the details may you ask? Yes, I sang karaoke in NYC, on Time Square, with it being videotaped, and played on the jumbotron ON Times Square. Not nearly as awesome as it sounds… and I wasn’t nearly drunk enough. And needless to say it was completely brutal and permanently scarring. Perhaps this is why I hold onto complete disdain for the act, but I just don’t understand.

There are Beyonce’s and Christina Aguilera’s for a reason. The reason is that not your average person is that talented… isn’t that why they make the big bucks?? So I personally don’t think there is any need to attempt that type of talent and share the less than stellar average gifts that many of us possess.

Just keep it to the shower or not at all and let the rest of us drink in peace and go home to listen to Itunes.
