MTV is dead


MTV is dead
MTV is dead. It was a long horrible drawn out process, but MTV the legendary music video format originators have passed away. In it's place, stands some awfully unoriginal programming. Unless you have been living in a cave for the last 20 years, you might have noticed that MTV really doesn't air music videos anymore. The truth is, since about 1993 the channel began to stray from the music video format and hasn't stoped since. Music videos used to be forced down our throats growing up. Which in turn ended up inspiring a generation of indy filmmakers to perfect their craft.
