For the entire day yesterday I was trapped at home waiting for the furnace repair guy to show up. They refused to give me a fucking time estimate, couldn’t even tell me whether it would be morning or afternoon, assholes. So I thought that while I was waiting I would watch some of the new music videos and see what is new and what I’ve been missing out on lately. I flipped through to VH1, but they weren’t showing music videos. They were showing some stupid ass reality TV show. I tried MTV. Same damn thing. Out of desperation I even tried BET. Same damn thing! The only channel showing any videos at all was the fucking GAC country channel. I can handle a small amount of country music. At least the country videos are generally good quality, well thought out, entertaining and pleasant to the eye, unlike most of the rock videos that just don’t make any sense and are just a bunch of random shots of tits and ass with a bunch of violence thrown in to round it all out like.
What happened to all the music videos? There have been music videos on cable TV since the early 1980’s. I clearly remember seeing the first MTV videos and how popular they were, which spawned the birth of VH1. Now neither one of them is even showing music videos. That’s crazy!
