I refuse to mention Laguna Beach, and I won't start now. I could go all day. That show epitomizes my problem with MTV.

I remember I flipped on MTV2 and watched headbanger's ball one day and Jamey f*cking Jasta from HATEBREED was hosting it. And to add insult to injury, some sh*tty poppy post-hardcore band's video was played right after. I turned that sh*t off.

They don't really give a crap about music.

 

It's all about ratings/cash. Douches.

 

Apparently, if you have a lot of generic, teen fluff crap on all day, with some mindless rap/r&b and screamo music vids tacked on, you can get a lot higher ratings than if you played music videos, or music videos for music that doesn't suck.

 

In the end, it's not about the music. It's about the cash, and they don't give a sh*t how crappy their programming is. They're the ones getting paid.

 

So until this useless programming becomes unpopular, then don't expect an MTV that even comes close to the MTV of the 80's/90's anytime soon.

Yeah. I watched it one time because I heard Children of Bodom was going to be on. Not only were they only on for like 2 minutes, but they showed a f*cking From First to Last video. I gave up on that show after that.

I only watch MTV for programs like Jackass and Pimp my ride. Other than that it's a load of sh*t with long advert breaks.

 

And it's the show that killed Top of the Pops, so f*ck them mad.gif

Pimp My Ride is dumbly scripted as well, which makes no sense to me because they could JUST AS EASILY make the SAME SHOW without having those guys spout half-witted punch lines. I don't understand why they insist on doing that for everything they produce.

 

And secondly, Pimp My Ride could be a much cooler concept if they

 

a) Didn't always put a useless, non-car-related gimmick in people's cars (i.e. coffee maker, waterfall, rotating coat rack, karaoke mic in the trunk, badminton net, etc)

 

b) Didn't paint the cars like f*cking laser tag arenas

 

c) Didn't use the SAME OLD, UGLY, RETARDED FLAME DECALS ON EVERYTHING

A f*cking men to that. Seriously who needs a hottub in their f*cking car?!?! Or dog tvs? Id sell half the sh*t they put into my car and use that money to buy a better regular car.

Goodfella.

I'm pissed off at MTV right now. It's celebrating it's 25th birthday, and that makes me feel really f*cking old.

I've heard a few of the car owners(I forget wich ones) ended up selling their featured rides after they had been modified anyways. Needless to say they make a killing off of it and end up getting a much nicer car than some overdetailed jalopy.
