So Courtney Love's taking over MTV2 for a whole day starting Saturday at 8:00 PM. She picks what goes on the channel for the whole day.

I hope this becomes a regular feature on MTV2, where an artist picks what to play for the whole day.

While it's a good idea - Courtney Love?! Honestly, if we stop putting her on TV, maybe she'll go away...

I too wandered what possessed M2 to pick her.

Maybe Courtney will pick that one song by the Distillers, since the lead singer sounds just like her on that song.

Probably so she can promote her new movie that comes out this weekend. They don`t mention her in the commercials, just Kevin Bacon & Charlize Theron, even though she`s a main character apparently.

I don't remember the title, but it stars Bacon and Love as kidnappers who abduct Charlize Theron's daughter--only Theron fights back.

(searches)

Ahh, here we go. "Trapped".

The movie is Trapped. I just saw an ad for it that doesn't involve Courney Love at all, but I checked it out, and yes she is Kevin Bacon's accomplice in the movie.

Ugh.

/edit I was beaten by a mere 14 seconds! And we both even checked the same website!

She was acting? I've always assumed she really WAS a crack whore.

I think that letting an artist pick the programming for a day is a cool idea, but they could have picked someone more interesting than Courtney Love.

It's also all about the demographics I think. Courtney will apparently pull in those 24-40 year olds feeling nostalgic for her glory ye... ummm her husband's glory years.

Well, if you had eight minutes in the pool before Courtney showed her breasts, YOU'D BE A WINNER!

What a whore. Let someone musically relevant take over M2 for 24 hours.

Good point. I'm not Courtney Love hater or anything, but they could've found someone a little more current for that than her.

Is this the first time they've had some take over MTV2 all day?

Among some of the cool videos they played were some video that had Winona Ryder lipsnyching and Dirk Diggler's friend from Boogie Nights playing the drums, Pavement's "Cut Your Hair, and one of the coolest videos ever, "Crush on Eyeliner" from REM. I didn't see that one in years, and that was always one of my favorites.

They didn't play that many videos the last few hours, the most notable videos were Husker Du, The Smithereens, and the Mooney Suzuki.

Overall, they should do this with different artists, at least once a month.

I saw her play The Clash - Clampdown live, Fountains of Wayne - Radiation Vibe, R.E.M. - Crush with Eyeliner, Radish - Little Pink Stars, Garbage - Queer, and probably more I can`t think of.

And uhm, I also saw her boobies about 3 times.

VH-1 Classic was having a "We Are the 80's" weekend, so that won out over Ms. Love. I stuck a couple of tapes in and let 'em fly.

That was a cool idea to have someone take over the channel for a day. I had that fantasy many moons ago of being able to take over MTV for 24 hrs and show some good stuff. A full hour of 'Mats and solo stuff. A full hour of Matthew Sweet. They'd never let me do it again.

You betcha they do!!!

It's in hour long blocks usually:

The 60's Generation
Rock Fest - 70's & 80's metalish stuff
Pop Show - 80's pop (Michael Jackson, Prince, etc.)
All-Star Jams - Mostly 60's and 70's and mostly live type stuff
We Are the 80's - Just what it says, except it usually shows those videos that MTV showed when it first came on (of course, growing up in the sticks I didn't have MTV so I'm guessing here). Some weird, cool & forgotten shit is usually shown here. Too cool

If you have satellite or digital cable, check it out.
