Hey, guess what! We’re giving away 5 copies of I Want My MTV. Right the fuck now!
The First 5 people to email firstname.lastname@example.org will get a book. You must put I WANT MY MTV in the subject line to be eligible.
Only winners will be notified. Good luck!
This wonderful oral history of the golden era of MTV is out today, and I suggest you buy it. Pitchfork has an excerpt on its front page today. If you’re around tonight, the authors are doing a little forum/Q&A thing at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble at 7pm with me, DMC and Ed Lover, along with whichever of the early execs decides to drop in. It should be interesting, but I’ll be honest: it will definitely be less sexy and drugsy than much of the goings-on in the book.
Anyway. Get your copy here and say goodbye to your weekend.
