40 years ago today on August 1, 1981, video killed the radio star, and MTV was
born. Working there was one of the best jobs one could ever have, second only to
operating a gaming news website. I got to meet some amazing people, many of whom
remain friends to this day. So here's to 40 years of MTV. And to, I don't know,
almost 20 years of playing music videos? This combines with something else near
and dear to my heart. Today is also apparently Spider-Man Day. Though this may
technically be a mistake
. I'm sure they're right about August being wrong.
When I was a kid buying comics, the month of the current issues was always about
four months in the future.
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
