As Long As You Love Me

Check out D'luv's latest Towleroad column—"Saying Bye Bye Bye To TRL"—which one reader raves is "just a lot of wistful and self-absorbed rambling."

Surely he was equally impressed with my grade-A Photoshop skills?

    hahaha so is the essence of making art isn't it; you could have a wall full of praise, but there's always that one comment that is out of line which just sticks.

    i liked the write-up! and omg Hoku!!! such a shame!! muahahahahahaha

    well if you think about it the name "Total Request Live", that is what it is exactly - a bunch of kids calling up to request what they want to see. I mean, although the format really is brilliant (it would've been nice having that growing up in the '80s), it's really about understanding that kids don't sit around like we did waiting for countdowns and sitting by a phone calling in to request what video they want to see. Indeed, YouTube has had a great bearing on the accessibility of music videos, but come on, let's be honest! I'd rather watch crisp high resolution versions of the videos any day over what we get on YouTube.

    p.s. i liked the photoshop art; it's very representative of the TRL Generation of gratuitous photo collages. although perhaps more neon coloured fonts and e-bonics would have been a lovely touch? :')

    which brings me to my next point... the future of televised music videos is music video on demand, which available with many cable tv providers; i know it's huge with Virgin Television watchers in the UK where the have a rotation of the hottest new music videos sorted by artist at your whim 24-7. record companies and artists should focus on getting visibility here.
