On Monday, August 1, MTV turned 30 years old. Media outlets across the country, including Yahoo!, celebrated this auspicious occasion in pop culture. All but ONE media outlet, that is: um, MTV. Like the ungracefully aging Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd. or titular character in Logan's Run, MTV bizarrely refused to celebrate its own 30th birthday, and just treated it like any other day.

MTV is ignoring their own birthday..they want to stay 29..you know the old saying.."never trust anyone over 30..lol
wow 30...such a milestone but don't worry 40 is better...it's SEXIER! :-)
Meaningless, I can see why MTV didn't bother with it. It's not the powerhouse it was and didn't want to bring it to the attention of others, which makes it meaningless.
And sadly look what MTV has become. A breeder, for talentless people to be jackasses on Television. Way to go MTV. Low far you've come
They say that some people look better/are better as they age...perhaps not true for MTV. I can't say that as an original follower that I even view the channel anymore. Their shows, like Jersey Shore, really turn me off. I'd rather see all day music videos like the good old days!
LearnFromMe you hit it right on the head. I don't know how MTV is today, but MTV does stand for Music Television. From what I've heard there's hardly any music on there anymore. What happened to the hours of music videos, the Top Ten Countdown. Oh my God! I forgot all about that until just now! Nosatga setting in. Van Halen--Jump, Michael Jackson--Thriller, Devo, Ac/Dc, Def Leppard. I just went back in time.
Bring back the killer music and the videos. The rock and roll, the pop, the contemporary rock, the best S*** on earth baby!
As they do that they can put the Jersey Shore where it belongs........................................................just off the Jersey Shore.
Is that why they stopped caring about playing cool music videos back in 1999 when they filled their schedule with entire seasons of reality TV? Did they get over their teenage years and settled for a less tasteful choice of programs?
right on! one more episode of rob & big i think i'll gag,.. and quiet library? who dreams or night mares this crap up??? i'm embarassed to admit i even know the show names.
MTV2 did something for the entire weekend called MTV30,... it was highlights of te last 30 years,... does that count?
and yes,... i enjoyed watching the highlights of the good stuff all weekend.
Unfortunately, the network is full of pointless "reality" shows and no longer hardly features music at all. Pathetic really....

When I was growing up the public's attachment or appreciation for a musician was based what we heard when we pressed "play" on our stereos. Then MTV came along and it was all about the image. ...

My criteria for selecting these videos are based on uniqueness, directing, concept, and overall feel. I realize that a sizeable number of videos here are Hype Williams directed,but he is that good. Has been doing a lot...

I managed to get almost half way there, but that's still a far cry from getting it done. I think I must've been crazy to think I could get it done at this time of year. I'll try it again after the holiday craziness is...
