New Hampshire in the Morning

I (used to) want my MTV!

M – In 1981 Nina Blackwood was a star on MTV. Thirty years later Snooki is the queen. I no longer want my MTV. Tracy and I spoke with the original MTV VJ (video jockey) recently and we all agreed, we MISS our MTV of old. On August 1, 1981, a pioneering group of people signed the cable channel on with a video by the Buggles called, Video Killed the Radio Star. Lucky for me, that never really came to be. I would submit that we can re-invent that feeling with an updated song (I’ll write it later) Snooki Killed the VJ Star. OK, not entirely true since MTV abandoned being a real source for music videos long before Nicole Snooki Polizzi poofed up her first beehive hairdo. I miss I Ran by Flock of Seagulls and A-Ha’s Take on Me. I miss Nina’s fabulous blond mane and rock ‘n roll wardrobe. In her place, we get potty-mouthed personalities on Jersey Shore. I no longer want my (Bleep’n) MTV.
