View Full Version : Did Anyone else do this?

Back in the day when MTV really was about music... I used to record a lot of the videos. Well I dug out an ond VHS the other night that I recorded on here and there over probably about 3-4 years time from the mid to late 80's. Man talk about a trip down memory lane!! Lots of cool stuff on it. Lots of Lame-ass stuff too. What was I thinking?

This is funny one video on it I remember I had recorded for an old girlfriend she liked the song. Any body remember Oran Juice Jones? - "Walkin in the Rain"? I laughed my ass off when I saw that!

I'm in Canada, so it isn't MTV, but I cringe when I think of some of the stuff I used to have on tape and taped over because I didn't think I'd care. I used to have a cool Friday Night Videos (I think) on tape where Dave yaps in between showing vids and I wish I hadn't gotten rid of it. I remember he shows Papa Don't Preach by Madonna and before it he comments on Madonna going after the Marilyn Monroe look; Dave gets that sly grin and says, "maybe Sean's forcing her".

I've spent years bitching at my parents for never throwing anything away, and now I regret some of the things that I threw away. I must be getting old.

I have a Beta tape around here somewhere with some LiveAid segments on it - who knows what else is on the other tapes. Also have a store-bought tape of the Rolling Stones - video rewind as well as my college video projects!

One ear to the ground, he's listening to the dead..."

Hey, M-TV: Van Halen will NEVER be dead, but somebody oughtta get you a doctor!
