    The song was so much about MTV that it could almost be the name of the song. The music video was a cartoon about MTV.

    So it was related to that music channel I referred to? :-) Or am I off again? :-(

    No, it was related. There is likely no song that was ever more intimately tied to/about MTV than Money For Nothing. It was a song largely about MTV.

    Ah okay, I never really watched MTV, beyond knowing it existed and was something to do with music aimed at teens I don't know much about it.

    EDIT:
    Wait weren't Beavis and Butthead first shown on MTV?

    As long as you feel the ride is beneficial and your not hurt by the bumps, then enjoy the ride. From what you've posted these swings seem to be the norm and not likely to stop.

    The song actually uses the phrase "I want my MTV".

    I'm 99% sure I have heard music from the same band long long ago! :-) Not too surprising that this was fairly typical for the 80's and 90's.

    I think you're right, though the distance probably factors in as well.

    I never really cared for it myself, but how old are you if I may ask? I am 44, I'm guessing you're a few years older. :-)

    Actually it didn't carry teen music until later. The content aimed at MTV's core audience (20 to 35) at the time of its debut moved on to the second channel VH1. That made room for MTV to switch to head-banger stuff and before long "music-adjacent" content like TV shows.

    Re: Post Race!

    What time period are we talking about exactly? My memory concerning MTV is so vague I'm not even sure when I first learned about it or when it first aired. My memory is like: some american music video channel from the 90's/possibly 80's aimed at young (very broadly speaking people). I was actually surprised I even remembered Beavis and Butthead had something to do with MTV.

    I was much more interested in cartoons and space operas back then. :-)

    PS:
    And what channel MTV was on I never have known. Back then I'd probably have to zap through a dozen channels on the satellite reciever to even be able to watch it.

    You were 1yr old when MTV came out. It had it's own channel.

    I was never into it. Especially at first, they were playing Devo and Flock of Seagulls. Plus I was pretty busy in those days.

    Re: Post Race!

    Alright, that means MTV is much older than I thought! :-) I never got into MTV, once I learned to appreciate cartoons with crude humor I kind of liked Beavis and Butthead and their movie. But we were talking about music for the most part, let's see, all I can really say is that if I haven't heard just about every popular song from the 80's and 90's at least a dozen times or so I might still enjoy them, especially for nostalgic reasons. Anyway I never really was that much into music to begin with.

    I might have occassionally watched MTV on vacation in the US or during those years I lived there (for my father's job) on cable. If we even could recieve MTV in the Netherlands it was through our satellite dish. :-) It definitely wasn't in the package you got when recieving via antenna and probably was available with some of sort of cable subscription (likely one with extras), which became available in our area around 1995. If I felt like it I could check, but my guess is that with digital tv these days I probably recieve just about every channel available in the netherlands you can imagine by default. Or perhaps not.

    I'm 56, so yes, a few years. I watched a fair amount of MTV videos as a freshman in college.

    When I was watching MTV was 85-86. I don't remember ever watching it after that, though.

    Sounds like you were 16 or so back then, pretty much around the age I'd expect for someone to be interested in MTV.

    I was born about one month and three weeks prematurely. If you ignored that I'd be 44 years, 3 months, 24 days, 15 hours, and 53 minutes old. :-)

    How do you display images again here? I keep forgetting. And while this forum is mostly fairly easy to use the system for handling attachments and images could be modernized a bit imho.

    Is it just me or has anyone else notice that this site has slowed down. Takes a long time to open, takes a long time to navigate between pages. It's like that on both of my computers. All the other sites I normally visit are fine.

    Well for 68754 the sum of its digits is 30. It has a total of 4 prime factors and 16 positive divisors....

    Code:
    "Well for 68754 the sum of its digits is 30. It has a total of 4 prime factors and 16 positive divisors...." - Can you write a good joke about that?
    
    ChatGPT
    Why did the number 68754 go to therapy?
    
    Because it was feeling divided! Its therapist said, "You've got to sum up your digits and find your prime factors." But all it could think about was how it was divided into 16 different parts!
    So stupid it is actually kind of funny. :-)
