It was almost too believable
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.

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.
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.
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.
As huge a Cash fan as I am, I just can't see him fitting into the MTV award show. I think half, if not more, of their audiance comes straight from the pop bullshit TRL. They are going to see Cash come on stage and tune out. Thinking who is this old man.
