Whatever happened to MTV

Evening all!

I write this stripped to my pants, sweating like I was in South East Asia. You may find this to be too much information, and you are probably quite correct, but it's the truth damn it! It's friggin HOT!!!

Not that I am complaining mind you.

However, I do have a question. Does anyone actually watch music television anymore? I say this as I happened to see The Prodigy's "Firestarter" come on someones TV and it took me back to when I used to watch 'The Box', and literally wait until this song came on. I would go through hours of tracks before I got to the one I wanted and this actually helped me hear a shit ton of other acts and artists that I may never have bothered with.

Don't get me wrong, I love the ease of finding what you want on Youtube or Spotify whenever you damn well please, but I can't help thinking it has meant losing something else. Possibly the fun? The anticipation waiting for 'your track' made it sort of exciting, and it was briliant when you discovered a track you'd never think of listening to because it came on and then that became your new 'jam'! 

I'm no Ludite, I'm really just questioning whether it is a good or bad thing those days are gone. Maybe I just miss some stuff about the past. Maybe the heat's gone to my head?

Ah, screw it I'm off to sit in a bath of ice! I'll leave you with my very own music video for "The Girl"


Much Love!
