First off...Mtv stands for music television.
When the girls i live with are watching TV, Mtv is all they meeping watch. And ya know the meep what? There aint no muthameepin music on that meep channel! At the end of every 1/2 hour shout-filled-drama-fest they do, however, play a 10 second clip of some music video you will never see in its entirety(thank god cause it is usually some lame Green Day or Good Charolette meep). Another thing i have and issue with is the pro-homomeepuality angle that all they shows take. Homomeepuality is NOT the norm.
Queers are the minority at this point in time as far as population goes. But you wouldnt be able to tell from watching this channel. I think its either has gotten better in the last year or two or ive become more desensitized to it.(blame it on G.W.) Whatever. Next problem.
Mtv promotes gratuitous meep, both hetero and meep, and thats ok with me but they tend to censor something else, drug use (except alcohol of course, thats encouraged)
and guns. Ill never forget the first time i saw Dr Dre's "let me ride" video from his debut albulm "the Chronic" Luckily i had already seen it un-edited on a now defunct music station called "the box" where you called in and paid to see your favorite music videos. There is a scene where he pulls out a glock from his glove compartment and puts it in his lap as hes 'rollin in his '64' When they played the video on Mtv...the gun was blurred out...What did tha Doc have in his hand? A meeping meep? I got a good laugh when later in the video there is a mock carjacking and 3 thugs with guns try to rob him. They come up and each have a blur in their hands. I always got a kick outta that cause they could have been robbing him at meep point for all we new.
Next issue. Rock the Vote.
Chirs Cornell of the superband Audioslave was asked on camera why he didnt participate in the ROCK THE VOTE. He responded with saying that he didnt want to be a part of something that so clearly supported ONE canidate over the other. Remember Slick Willy playin the sax?...i do...that was cool. Remember Bob Dole on Rock the Vote?
Me neither. Its this kind of one sided meep that Mtv pushes. They tell you what to wear...what to buy(Cribs)...and what to drive(pimp my bucket)....who and how to meep....etc, etc. etc.
If i hear one more overprivilidged yuppie kid in high school talk about how life is hard im gonna meeping throw that meep TV off the balcony. (baby your warned)
meep Giedion Yaego(wtf kinda name is that?) meep Suchin Pak(heh-heh), meep Sway, meep Carson, meep Ashley, meep Nick and Jessica, meep Dave and Carmen, and meep anyone who watches this meep. Oh yeah, so you dont feel left out, meep you. Wheres Andy meep when you need 'em.
