Post VMA Thoughts

Everything that could be said has probably been said. Disgust. Shock. Pity. If shock was the intent then it was a success. Jimi Hendrix touting his guitar on a hendrix fuzz face mini would be put to shame with the kind of display that went on. Where's the great music? or the awesome lyrics? Have we gone so low as to give awards to the most shocking video performances rather than celebrating talent and creativity? Where's the music that will remain long after the songwriter is gone? Makes me wonder what they will do next time to electrify the audience.
