    OK, I have been w/o cable for a little over two years (law school does not provide me w/ the luxury of paying for cable or the time to watch). The world of video has changed slightly since I last remembered, especially in the formats of the two major carriers, VH1 and MTV. With that preface...

    I am reading a couple of patent claims, flipping through the channels when...

    I stumble upon Brittany Spears on MTV and Metallic on VH1!?!

    I remember a time, just a few years ago, when Spears wouldn't get air time on MTV (not alternative or edge enough), and Metallic would never get air time on VH1 (too damn loud!!).

    Now? Oops...I've crossed over.

    Anyone else think this formatting change (however so subtle) is strange?

    Sorry to include you all in my re-introduction (perhaps re-education) to cable TV.

    Its a prehistoric fish...Coelacanth.

    welcome to the lunacy, olen.
    after a while, you'll get used to it.
    MTV can't make money off of anyone over 20, so you'll never see a good rock band on that station ever again unless Wolfgang Van Halen starts his own band.

    moving this to fans meeting forum (music)
