MTV can suck my left nut

A few comments about the MTV Movie Awards:

* It's a strange world we live in where Miley Cyrus beats out The Boss for song in a movie. Who sang it better: Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" fromHannah Montana: The Movie...

...or Bruce Springteen's "The Wrestler" from The Wrestler?


* Sasha Baron Cohen joins Steven Colbert in the big brass balls club.

* As I was watching the whole freak show unfold, I can fully understand why Thom Yorke of Radiohead hates MTV.....its nothing more than as, Lester Bangs from Almost Famous would say, "an industry of cool." How did MTV go from being part of the X-generation to a part of the souless, vapid, and shallow culture that glorifies talentless eye candy? For years i've wondered why I've never totally fit in with the pop culture of my generation....tonight I understand why: I have no connection with it.

* Twilight sucks. The craptastic movie swept the awards show, and they're making another one, titled New Moon. Fuck that. I'd rather sit through <Armageddon and Pearl Harbor than pay money to watch a bunch of Abercrombie and Fitch pretty boys run around with their shits off. 'Nuff said.

Remember who the voters are and how they are Jonathon.

Now is it just going to double post everything?

I went to stretch. It allows the videos much better.

I guess the moral of the story is that a channel born on the now-ubiquitous "music video" is singularly unqualified to weigh in on movie merit. As the Count said - consider the source!

ET would like your views on the news of the day and on some of my views on the "Pro Lifers" these people make me channel my inner Mike Malloy.

Done, Count, on the "Pro-Lifers Are a Joke" thread, in two parts...
