The Day the Music (Television Network) Died

Posted on August 11, 2007. Filed under: 50 Cent, Boston, Friday Night Videos, KISS, Michael Durwin, MTV, Paris Hilton, Web 2.0, web site down |

Is MTV recreating itself? Of just making room for more Paris Hilton news? The television networked that changed American culture through music videos and then stopped doing it, play music videos that is, has a “site down for maintenance” page up. I’m old enough to remember KISS taking off their make-up, MTV’s predecessor, Friday Night Videos, and the last time MTV went off the air for the night, but I haven’t kept up with them since they became irrelevant to music fans.
I’m hoping this retooling is more than just putting more ad banner space aside or a quicker way to get to faux-celebrity news and maybe a sign that MTV is reinventing itself again to something we could all use. But, I doubt it. Anyway, here is a screenshot of the web site.
