Lost Generation
Last night I switched my remote from CNN to MTV. After getting fed up with the news of Tiger Woods cheating/car crash incident (hasn't anyone learned from Princess Diana?) and Did they or did they not crash the Whitehouse party?, I decided some insight of troubled teenagers looking for love would not hurt.

Do you remember when MTV used to be the it thing? When you could say "Oh I saw it on MTV" when your teacher asked how you found out about global warming & staying off drugs. It saddened me when I started to see naked men running around feeding themselves to tarantulas and bunches of spoiled talentless fashionistas bitching about how they life suck when they don't know how to spend their daddy's money on Spring Break.

I used to chuckled whenever they said "Next we have Bye Bye Bye by N'SYNC" because 4-byes did sound like a stupid relay error but I would trade what I see today with those cheesy boybands. Hey, I know you love them too.

So where are the good music? Where are the cool VJs? What happened to MTV Generation? All I see now is people making out on hot tubs. Tila Tequila is not a role model, ladies & gentlemen. I refuse to take someone who's named after a drink seriously and do you really think Steve-O still have a normal brain cell?

I want my MTV back.

In Indo we used to have this saying "anak nongkrong MTV" which abruptly translated "Chillin MTV peeps" but it actually means younger generation who watch MTV, listen to good music, are aware of their surroundings and therefore: COOL. It was something to be proud of. It was a culture. It was us.

So what are we now?
