My MTV

January 26, 2011

Radio. I still listen to it, but mostly online nowadays. Love it because I’ll hear music that I otherwise wouldn’t listen too. So the other day I started reminiscing the 90s when i heard Lynden David Hall’s Sexy Cinderella on my favourite BBC 1xtra.

Remembering those late nights watching MTV Amour. I probably should have been asleep by the time it was on but fell asleep after it instead.

Good old days drowning into the sexy, silky, smooth sounds of those love songs. Amour was one of my favourite shows being a big MTV fan as a teen. After The Lick!

Every Wednesday night, 10p.m. I was glued. The Lick – Trevor Nelson, his voice, the sofa. And the music of course.

That’s what they used to do on MTV, play music videos, lots of them. They still do, don’t they? (on the extra channels I think like MTV2, MTV Dance, MTV Base)

Trevor Nelson, we salute you, then he got rid of the sofa and I started losing interest. I moved to the UK and his British accent wasn’t that special anymore.

I listened to him on the BBC 1xtra Breakfast Show but now he is only one good DJ among many other. Thanks CJ Beatz for bringing back some Old Skool on Sunday.

Amour and The Lick have both had a big impact in defining my taste for music and what I listen to today.

Another video often played on Amour and so great it had to be added to this post.

RIP Lynden David Hall and Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes.

Raw meat=Fashion?

September 20, 2010

There must be a limit to how far a person can go. I’m in absolute awe.

I know the VMAs were last Sunday and I did have a look at some of the dresses worn on the white carpet. Lady Gaga in something that only she would wear, of course. A dress with a big painting that she apparently wore last year in Vanity Fair. Not that bad.

I did see something about “Lady Gaga meat dress” trending on Twitter but didn’t put my mind to it until today, just a moment ago, when a picture appeared in front of my eyes.

Lady Gaga wearing pieces of meat. Red meat covering her body. A piece of meat on her head. And they call this a hat. Meat on her feet in the shape of wedges. Meat from a living animal covering a human body.

Meat that could feed the hungry. Seriously. There are people in this world who don’t know what the sensation of being full feels like. I am truly disgusted.

Firstly, I’m disgusted of the designer for thinking of such an inhuman, tasteless and cruel creation. Secondly, what kind of person is this Lady Gaga, would she let someone wear meat from her body and thirdly, MTV, how could they agree to this, don’t they have any moral or ethical responsibility. Limits, there must be a limit.

But apparently not. When it comes to publicity everything is allowed. Yes, I have given it some attention here so they succeeded. However, they lost my appreciation and hopefully others’ too.

Is this what fashion is coming too? What will be the next thing? Lady Gaga always trying to outdo herself. But then it’s not surprising that she would be the one to wear something like that. She already have followers trying to imitate her style but let’s hope they’ve got some sense not to wear raw meat.

Actually, I got a funny thought, I wonder if there’s a synthetic imitation of Lady Gaga’s meat dress. Something done in sticky plastic. Just in case…

Rhianna and Kanye West in Paranoid

June 3, 2009

It’s actually a cool video. Music videos aren’t what they used to be. Since they’re all on the Internet, I only see what I select and not what is shown on the music channels. The days when music channels were on in the background are long time gone and I don’t even have MTV anymore.

Anyway, so the rumour I heard about Rhianna and Kanye West being romantic with each other might have been made up from their video collaboration. True or false? As it is these days it can be enough with a cheek kiss, a smile and you in love, romantically involved.

I guess they would make a good couple, high profile. One beaten, one dumped. Just watch the video…

5 July, Hyde Park, Wireless festival, Kanye West is headlining and the rest of the line up is looking hot. I will be there so watch this space because I will probably have something to say.
