As a former MTV VJ (one of first 3 VJs for MTV-Asia), it’s astounding to me how MTV has become so irrelevant to the world of music. It’s used to be the thing,(really!) I tell teenagers today as they roll their eyes in that oh so multi-tasking way, twittering their thumbs, heads nodding white earbuds half-engaged.
One of these days I’ll get around to digitizing and uploading some of my old VJ stuff. And before that, I used to actually write the scripts for MTV Headbangers Ball. Okay that was a long, long time ago…
The economists/journalists at Freakonomics have also noticed the irrelevance of MTV and the rise of YouTube.
And here’s a pic William posted of me on my Facebook account and shocked the heck out me.
