I Want MY MTV!

Remember when MTV was videos only?

Remember Adam Curry and his big hair?

Downtown Julie Brown?

Martha Quinn?

Headbanger’s Ball?

What the hell happened to my MTV?

Pimp My Ride?

Parental Control?


Maybe I’m just old, but when did MUSIC TV stop being about MUSIC? What’s musical about taking someone’s old beat-up car and making it into something I wouldn’t be caught dead in?

Or, the show that caught my attention this morning, Parental Control. Apparently this show is about parents who don’t like who their child is dating. They get to choose two other potential mates for their child, I say child because from what I observed this morning that’s what they are. CHILDREN. The child goes on dates with these potential mates and then gets to choose who he or she wants to be with.

As I’m sipping my coffee, waiting for my toast to cook, I watch this trainwreck.

The parents are sitting there with their daughter’s current love interest. This girl is watching with the parents as their daughter goes on dates. The mom says something snarky about the current g/f.

The current g/f calls her an idiot.

An idiot.

If that were me, and that were my house, and my son’s girlfriend, we would’ve went from Parental Control to Jerry Springer in about three seconds.

Imagine the nerve.

I may have thought one or two of my signifigant other’s parents were idiots, but there was no way I would have said something so disrespectful.


Why, I would’ve kicked that girl outta my house and told her to not darken my doorstep EVER again.


And people watch this crap?

I want my old MTV back.

I want my Headbangers Ball.

My V-J’s giving me music news. Carson Daly is so NOT a V-J.

Maybe we need to petition the networks to create an “OPMTV”.

Old People’s MTV.


Bring back the hair bands!

Play some Alice In Chains, Pantera, and Ozzy in Headbanger’s Ball.

Make MTV about music again. Not pseudo-reality tv.

The Yo-Mama show can stay, actually I kind of like that one.


I’m officially old.


Until next time……Keep rockin’. 🙂

One thought on “I Want MY MTV!

  1. Howdy! I know this really is kinda off subject but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or perhaps guest authoring a weblog post or vice-versa? My site addresses plenty of the identical subjects as yours and I think we could greatly advantage from each other. For anyone who is interested feel absolutely free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb weblog by the way!
