    MTV is to blame for there ever being a Jersey Shore in the first place. Fuck MTV

    WhyTF is WEDNESDAY spelled so strange?

    What's up with that?

    The name is derived from Old English Wōdnesdæg and Middle English Wednesdei, "day of Wodanaz", ultimately a calque of dies Mercurii "day of Mercury."

    Huh. I had to look up "calque" - you learn something new every day, I guess.

    I have no idea when that was, but I have hated everything tangentially related to it since 1996.

    They seem to hard focus on a very narrow demographic of teenagers, it's not surprising that people grow out of the channel.

    Arguably...now that I really think about it...MTV has never been great or cool, even back when they showed mostly music programming...

    Is that about the time they started doing Road Rules and shit like that? All MTV is now is a bunch of fucking stupid (literally) bitches bitching at each other. I don't want to watch retards arguing with each other. It's stupid as hell.

    Actually, I shouldn't discredit the old MTV totally, for a long time it was one of the only places bored, suburban kids, far removed rock meccas like NY or LA, could be exposed to hip music.

    Now with the internet though....

    They were I think the first to glom onto reality television, specifically that you could create interesting drama on the cheap and exploit the shit out of your amateur actors.

    It's a word invented by cunning linguists to describe a semantic translation.

    The "Q" union was lobbying hard that day.

    I was 14, just not interested in trl, road rules, or yet another Will Smith, Seal, Madonna video instead of rock/metal/animation.

    wushupork: Elvis Cracks the Fuck Up

    Yeah, hah hah... I know about that.

    I'll tell you what happened.

    Elvis said, "Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair..."

    At that moment some guy in the front row started lifting up his toupee and kept flipping it up and down.

    That's why Elvis cracked up. Now you know the rest of the story.

    I like it when the unflappable superstars show they're human. Like when Phil Hartman cracks up as Frankenstein's monster, and crashes through the SNL set.
