That was such a non-story. Not only did he never actually try, Jordan was the one to mention that he was married anyway. So basically he joked about it without intending to.

"As 'Kennedy', [she] ushered in a new musical era for MTV as the host of Alternative Nation from 1992-1996, helping popularize bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Nirvana." Between her and Loder, that's 90% of the non-video airtime in the mid-90s.

So, a washed up, forgotten fame whore wrote a book in a desperate attempt to get another 15 minutes by waxing nostalgic over her previous 15 minutes of fame, and now she wants some publicity for it by making outrageous claims and telling stories that cant/wont be verified by anyone else involved but her. Yay!

I think being annoying and unpleasant was corporate policy in that time period. As annoying as Kennedy was, John Sencio was much worse. Donal Logue's cab driver character, worse still.

The DBS: Odd, her book title mentions "golden age of MTV", but she was on in the 90's.


Eh, the 90s were a bit of a golden age, at least before they popularized reality TV. The 90's were when MTV was most relevant to pop culture, started to become more than simple "Music Television". They were helping a younger generation learn about politics with their participation in Rock the Vote, they were bringing STD and AIDS awareness to a younger generation that likely blew off learning the same stuff in school. They started informing a younger generation about world events when those kids likely couldn't be bothered to watch regular news. There's a shiat load of stuff MTV started in the 90s that was pretty revolutionary for the time, a simple music video channel actually doing something kinda important. Of course those same things that were revolutionary at the time. Of course all that led to the channel becoming a total shiat sammich, but while the channel was popular in the 80s, it was most relevant in the 90s.

Agree with this. MTV hit a sweet spot in the early 90s, just around the 1992 elections. They had a good balance of news, videos, music-related content, and non-musical stuff (Liquid Television, etc.).

Then by around 1998, TRL had taken over the network and all the good content was gone.

/Truth be told, MTV and Nickelodeon from about 1991-1995 were pretty good years.

Seriously... MTV started its death spiral when Road Rules and Real World got popular... around 1995(?) or so. Suddenly VH1 became relevant ( Pop up video presumably and being one of the only places to go if you still wanted to watch videos ) . Everyone who wanted to actually watch videos moved on or just sort of shrugged and gave up.

I was not a fan of Kennedy on MTV but seeing her on TV recently she is very funny and very intelligent. In my opinion MTV peaked when there was only one or two non music video programs, like Remote Control.

An long-lost acquaintance told me a story about going with Jesse to the Clermont Lounge and Jesse at one-point disappearing only to be found later passed out with a needle and spoon in the back of a truck in the parking lot.  This was like 15 years ago when the Clermont wasn't a place where suburbanites would go to be "bad".  It was just bad.

Wasnt Jesse the flaming gay dude that I am going with idea Sascha Coens Bruno character was based on.

Canadian TV generally does not play well to American audiences, often for good reason. However, having had access to both MTV and Much Music from the mid 80s to the late 90s, I would suggest Much Music was often better.

I'm not sure that I can stress that enough, but I'm gonna try... Somewhere near the end of the 90's, I would see her occasionally(I'm guessing on MTv, although I can't remember), and she had mellowed some, and was finally tolerable. She's boinkable though, especially if that book cover pic is recent.

I couldn't have done her either, if that was her real personality.

Dingleberry Dickwad: The DBS: Odd, her book title mentions "golden age of MTV", but she was on in the 90's.

Eh, the 90s were a bit of a golden age, at least before they popularized reality TV. The 90's were when MTV was most relevant to pop culture, started to become more than simple "Music Television". They were helping a younger generation learn about politics with their participation in Rock the Vote, they were bringing STD and AIDS awareness to a younger generation that likely blew off learning the same stuff in school. They started informing a younger generation about world events when those kids likely couldn't be bothered to watch regular news. There's a shiat load of stuff MTV started in the 90s that was pretty revolutionary for the time, a simple music video channel actually doing something kinda important. Of course those same things that were revolutionary at the time. Of course all that led to the channel becoming a total shiat sammich, but while the channel was popular in the 80s, it was most relevant in the 90s.


MTv is WHY we have Reality TV. The Real World was the beginning of the end. Although there was definitely some good times in the 90's, it's when MusicTelevision(Otherwise known as MTv), started to turn away from music itself and become a channel of TV shows. I still watched through about '95 or so, but stopped entirely until '99 or so when I turned it on one day and realized that they now had a 1 1/2 hour block in the middle of the night as their entire 'music videos' content. Really, this started in the late 80's with Remote Control, whatever it was Julie Brown hosted, and a few other shows, but it took off in the 90's and killed the channel completely.

As I said in another MTV thread, while the network became an utter joke by the late 90s and is even worse now, I don't think any one of us would be watching it as much as we once did if it actually played music videos with any consistency. There's too many different methods to expose ourselves to, and consume music nowadays.

With 1/10th the population of the U.S. either you target specific markets and have low production values or you try the "be all things to all people" approach and end up with something bland, but doesn't look like it was shot on a Sanyo video camera and edited on an Atari ST.

WarshCloth: Not to be all "Get off my lawn",  but do they even make music videos anymore?  I couldn't name the last song I saw a music video for.  Why make music videos if there's no place to play them.


They do.

McGrits: Can't remember the VJ's name before Riki. Adam Curry?


Yeah, Adam Curry.  Came off totally fake as a metal fan.  At least Riki had some cred (he owned a club that hosted metal bands).

I still say MTV could make a flippin killing if they launched a channel they just played the tapes from the beginning and cut in new commercials. Hell that would take care of my big screen party needs for the next decade.

When I was stationed in Hawaii, you could tune in MTV on FM radio, so you didn't have to listen to the videos on the crappy $2.00 speakers most TV's came with. It synced right up. MTV used to be so cool.

This.

When I saw that she was on I thought - Cool, I remember her...She's kinda hot.  Then she opened her farking mouth.  The highlight of the night is when she got so flustered trying to argue her point she declared "I was a philosophy major in college, SO I KNOW!!!".

Killer Cars: As I said in another MTV thread, while the network became an utter joke by the late 90s and is even worse now, I don't think any one of us would be watching it as much as we once did if it actually played music videos with any consistency. There's too many different methods to expose ourselves to, and consume music nowadays.


As obvious by the fact that not many people are aware that Viacom owns a channel that still does.  And you're right, no one watches it.

Hey! I got lost in that neighborhood Saturday night, just after I got lost downtown in all the Jazz Festival traffic!

Did you happen to see a man running in black underwear while drinking from a bottle of Canadian Club Sherry Cask?



No, the neighborhood seemed kind of deserted except for car traffic.

In other news, MTV "Vee Jays" need to get work somehow, so they write self-scandalizing books? WTF?

I remember MTV from college days. I didn't have cable TV when I grew up, but when I got to college in the late 80s I watched some of it and was like "umm, waht's the deal here?" It was good but not great. Then sometime around 1992 it spawned the reality TV genre with "The Real World" which people quickly discovered wasn't "real" at all. And now we're stuck with Honey Boo Boo and some biatch Gosselin and her half-breeds.

Kennedy was pretty... until she started talking and her crazy started coming out. That says a lot for a VJ. She was hardly in the "Golden age" of M-TV more the decline.

A virgin?  Really?  The same chick who came just this close to being fired for making like she was having oral sex with a microphone behind Rudy Guilliani when he was being interviewed at the Republican convention?

You are totally "get off my lawn", because, most Top 10 pop songs have videos made for them still.

Well, I don't pay attention to pop songs, but the metal acts I listen to make some videos.  Kamelot, Within Temptation, Epica, they make some good videos.

Recently produced Promovideos?

Soundgarden  Been Away Too Long (sorry, only available in Vevo format)
Alice in Chains  Hollow (same as above).

Notice a connection. Videos without band members (Yeah...o.k....sure so R.E.M. was doing it for the majority of their promovid-producing career. but still...I've a point maybe. I just woke up after not being asleep nearly long enough after being awake for far too long).

Also think Kennedy's an obnoxiously toxic right-wing tool fool.

Also lived close enough to the Canadian borner during the 1990's to view MuchMusic with some regularity. My takeaway from those days: An everlasting love for the music of Sloan.

covers.booktopia.com.au

^ Read this book if you want to know the real story behind how it all started (including the handful of times it was nearly killed during conception) up to how it became the sh*tshow it is now (hint: greedy control freaks).

At least to interesting anecdote (usually starting at Rated R and progressing quickly to XXX) on damn near every page.

Oh, and Martha was the closet wildchild. Nina was the one who put on the sex-kitten act but went home every night to here apartment full of cats.

i vaguely remember her getting into a fight with roseanne at one of the awards shows. roseanne said that kennedy was no martha quinn...kennedy retorted that roseanne was busy giving rush limbaugh a beej in the back...then something about kennedy swallowing.

my memory sucks.

I'm guessing the insult was the other way around.  Kennedy was a hardcore Young Republican.  She liked to show off her tattoo of the GOP's elephant mascot.

Making a video for reason.com, I'm betting she turned into a more socially-acceptable form of Republican: Libertarian.

According to the book I mentioned in my OP,  the VJ's were cast by type. Quinn was cast as and supposed to be the one to fill the role of "Virginal Girl Next Store" while Blackwood was the "Marlene Dietrich-esque sex-kitten" Well, a year in, Quinn is dating punk rockers (Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys) and Blackwood (according to the unofficial "Sixth VJ" [a glorified P.A. who was tasked with being their gopher and all-around-manservant in the studio and elsewhere]) was the turn-the-sexuality-on-and-off-like-a-light-switch-depending-on-whether -the-red-light-is-on-on-the-camera-in-front-of-me type.]
