Do they still make music videos? Whenever I flip past mtv, the only thing I ever see is a bunch of people in bathing suits in a huge hut-like structure on a beach somewhere lip-synching to songs that were popular about a year ago or the Real World. never videos. but I see ads. lots of ads. I keep expecting a backlash against corporations. Kids! Corporations are not cool! music videos are ads for CDs and tapes and artists. and mtv is a very well funded home shopping network.
