    yeah, MTVmusic is cool and nice, but you know what it lacks? the bangles
    that's right. no 'eternal flame', no 'hazy shade of winter', no 'walk like an egyptian'... they're all gone!
    and it's a shame

    A little Rap heavy for my tastes (come on, man, where's the prog-rock love?) but yes, I'd watch My RTV.

    i think the Flaming Lips's Turn it On is by far the best commentary on TV and bt extension MTV of the bunch.
