    Miss the original VJs? Wish MTV still showed videos? Then I've got the link for you.

    Three hours of MTV from 1983 including videos, commercials and Mark Goodman ...

    Cool. Seconds in, I see the list of dates for the Synchronicity II tour and the concert I was at in Biloxi.

    I remember pitching a minor fit when MTV decided to do "Friday Night Fights," where they play two videos and you dial in and vote for the best.

    That was even before they started showing commercials.

    Good times.

    I've no idea why, but a few minutes of that depressed me. Weird.

    I remember when it started.

    Martha Quinn ... yum.

    How many times have I seen or heard "Sledgehammer" and "Hungry Like the Wolf?" in my life? Too many.

    I saw this on an other board, the commercial for the Neil Young and the Shocking Pinks contest cracked me up the most. Also, I never realized at the time how boring Mark Goodman was.
  8. Martha was a bit spavined, wasn't she?

    That's because you were five fucking years old in '83!

    Time for the big people to watch MTV, you go watch GoBots or something. :D

    I was going to go to that Nov. 27 Police show at the UNIdome but there was a huge snowstorm that weekend and my folks wouldn't let me go.

    The Go-Bots cartoon didn't debut until '84, jerkass :D

    Christ. I'm sitting here trying to watch Human League and you're throwing GoBots' debut dates at me? Did you really write that? You documented on a major national message board that you possess that knowledge?

    Don't make me burn your teddy bear on the stove burner, nerdboy. It might be 25 years later, but I still think his ass isn't crispy enough. :D
