mtv changes its logo

saw on yahoo today that mtv is changing its famous logo after all this time and it made me think about when it first aired (yea im old)and the first time i watched it. i think peter gabriels sledge hammer was the first video i saw. its so sad that they lost (or moved forward, whatever u want to call it) the whole purpose behind the network. i miss staying up till one am watching videos....now its just one am feedings with infomercials, the home shopping network, and a credit card.

from yahoos article: "MTV is embracing change. In nearly three decades on the air, almost everything about the cable network -- from its programming, to its focus, to its place in popular culture -- has changed with the times, except for its famous tagline, "Music television." Recently, the network quietly unveiled a new logo which has dropped the tagline entirely, indicating that MTV itself is leaving its original mission of an all-music channel in the dust."

Mtv

Moron Television.

How many music videos do they show per night now, like two hours worth? It's been slowly becoming a reality show network since the real world reared its head 19 years ago.

I wish MTV was really MUSIC TELIVISON like how they used to... It really is a shame.  I remember when I was younger spending countless hours watching music video's.

Wow... I remember watching it the very first time it aired.  The moon man and that annoyingly catchy intro music.  And then Video Killed the Radio Star.  It was once so great. 

Can't remember the last time I even paused on it while channel surfing. 

I imagine it plays non-stop in hell.
