I want my Emmmm-Teeeee-Veeeeee…
:cue Dire Straits riff:
Ask anyone, literally any homosapien on the Big Blue Rock we call Earth, even the starving Sudanese in Darfur, why they stopped watching MTV, and they’ll say, “Because they stopped playing music videos.” I don’t even remember the last time I saw a complete music video on regular ol’ MTV (channel 17923042 MTV HoT JammZZZZ doesn’t count). From the TRL wasteland that Carson Daly built to the infinite stretches of “reality” shows chronicling the insanely difficult lives of the rich and beautiful, MTV has been nothing more than a hollow shell, a ghost of its former self over the past two decades.
MTVMusic.com is set to change that. They’ve pilfered archives of days long gone, wasted probably millions of hours of interns’ time and bandwidth limits to upload almost EVERY MUSIC VIDEO EVER. It’s visually uncluttered, it’s simple to use, and the coup de grace…NO COMMERCIALS (yet)! I’m especially impressed by the relatively high-def audio used. This site bukkakes all over YouTube’s jailbait face – it should be illegal. But it’s not, and you cubicle warriors now have another site to steal company time with.
Now excuse me while I smash my ear canals with Reign in Blood.
