while flipping through the channels yesterday, i found a pleasant surprise on MTV.
they were showing a rilo kiley video. i looked later and they were playing tegan & sara and silversun pickups.


...so.. thoughts?

i guess it shows that mtv has some kind of backbone towards decent music, even if i am not a huge fan of any of those bands.

but, of course, i hated them for it. do you think they are doing a good or a bad thing?

MTV's just jumping on the "indie" bandwagon, trying to get the new big thing. I think it's a sad attempt to salvage credibility among the younger generation, and personally I hope it doesn't work because MTV is just a train wreck barely able to keep itself afloat. It's time is gone.

vh1 classic is where it's at. i saw they might be giants' video for "ana ng" on there once.

mtv 2 in the uk is balls. it used to be quite good especially about 3-4 years ago and i enjoyed shows such as 120 minutes and such.

these days its tripe.

Bad.

And I don't mean the good "bad."

Great bands like those don't belong in the generic murkhole that is MTV.

Gonzo's still good. And MTV2 shows rap/hip-hop when its meant to be the rock/alternative/indie channel. Disgraceful. And mtv flux is where they are meant to show videos made by viewers/fluxers, but when i go onto it, it shows no viewer vids. And have you noticed there's a new MTV channel, MTV 'r in circle' ? They have too many channels and don't show enough music vids.
It's gonna be a blue day

What do you think I told my last girlfriend?
"I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to say next"
*NEXT LOGO FLASHES BY*
And then I forked out like 3 months worth of one dollar bills.

Exposed


That show is how I know those shows are fake. How would the people on the second season not know they were being Exposed? It was the same exact format.

Silversun is aight, but who the fresh hell is Tegan and Sara???


Tegan and Sara are pretty much the best girl band ever... ish.. not really.

But they're good times more of a pop kinda dealio. Don't listen to their new stuff though.
#26
I heard of the Silversun Pickups about last year from mtv. Lazy eye was on really early and just now they are making them bigger. MTV = The Sux

Do you like Freezepop, poster-above-me?

I saw one before where this girl was talking about how she used to date guys but it never worked for her. Another girl in the van asked her, "How come?" And she's like, "Well, because I'm gay."

It was t3h lawlz0rz.

Did anyone see the episode of Next where there was this guy named Ben that was one of the five guys to choose from. He had this ridiculous mustache and was a little over weight but I swear he was the funniest guy I've ever seen on there. It was awesome. We were in Florida on vacation and it came on and it was soo funny. I finally found a video of the whole thing.

Make sure and watch the whole video of Ben.

Edit:It appears that video cut out part of him trying to run away and get on the bus while still in the harness. Oh well.
