Last year, while sorting through some mildewed videotapes in my garage, I discovered three VHS tapes that contained the complete year-end countdown of MTV’s top 100 videos of 1988, unwatched by me since they were broadcast over the last ten hours of that year. Since then, I’ve been working my way through the tapes, and analyzing the videos in more detail than would seem reasonable to anybody–including the artists starring in those videos and myself.
It took me fully seven months to plow through the ten videos and four commercial breaks in the countdown’s third hour. Wow. That’s pathetic. I’ll try to pick up the pace a bit.
If you’re tuning in late, here’s what you missed.
