    I thought I'd give it a chance. I don't know why I watch this mostly lame production. Anyway, regardless of your opinion, I wish they'd just leave politics out of these shows - not just the VMA's, but Oscar, Emmy, whatever. Just do the show.

    And quit thanking God. :rolleyes:

    These people have a platform to express their views. It's no different from Talkbass, or a newspaper article.
     
  3. I'd rather watch a car wreck than MTV or VH1. What a bunch of crap, 24/7/365 :spit:

  5. We're not supposed to discuss politics or religion here either:bag:

    But yeah, like I care what a 9th grade dropout drug addict has to say about the war, or who a former gang-banging rapper wants to be in the White House in February....

    You know, I gave it a chance I really did...now I'm heading to the bathroom to induce some vomiting.
    I hate what it's become.

    If you don't want to watch it, turn it off. If you don't want to read what I post, push the ignore button...

    Also, since when have someone's credentials/past stopped them from making profound statements? I'm not saying that MTV is going to have Lil Wayne say something mindblowingly deep, but remember, just because someone has a checkered past doesn't mean they don't have the capacity for deep, intellectual thought.

    VH1 does play concerts every Friday though. Old beat club, grey whistle test and others. They're kinda cool.

    MTV needs to go away, now. I watched a little bit of it while I was in a hotel, and it really, really needs to go.

    MTV has pretty much sucked since, well, 1985 or so. Irredeemable at this point, best to just let it go. ;)
     
  12. You really should push that up to around 92-94 or so. Until the game shows, real worlds, and Cancun Spring Breaks took precedence over music.

    This thread is really funny: "I don't agree with this opinion, ergo it shouldn't be said."

    As soon as someone's opinion who you do agree with is being censored I know who'll be the ones crowing for constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression will be.

    Fake edit: I like MTV.

    I'm sorry you like MTV, Toasted. That would be one notch down in class and taste in my book :atoz:

    I just flipped past the Video awards...not my thing either...but did catch Jessica Simpson on stage with ZZ Top on that other special that was on a different network...and that was worth a couple of laughs...good lord...LOL

    BUT, after the Jessica debacle...ZZ Top did "I wanna Thank You"...which is a cool old tune...

    Actually car wrecks can be quite entertaining at times. It really depends on whether there are injuries or (preferably) not. Also depends on if it's in racing or on purpose, everyone watches NASCAR for the wrecks.

    +1. it's one thing not to listen/watch or to disagree. it's another thing to say that no one should ever do it EVER.

    I wasn't even referring to the political aspect in my post. It's been a part of rock and roll "fashion" to utter some bold political statement now for like 40 years. It goes great with the clothes, lights, image and dramatic camera angles.
    I was simply referring to the fact that I personally felt that it sucked. Others may feel differently and I respect their right to.

    I just wish MTV would change their name...

    Music Television no longer.

    CTV. RCTV. RRCTV.

    (crappy, really crappy, and really really crappy TV)
