Guys, I don’t know how to tell you this, but…well, I’ll just say it. There is someone on Pitchfork that is actually worth reading. It’s an excerpt of an oral history book about MTV, and it’s a pretty great read. Bonus: a statement that was either meant to be sarcastic or is hilariously misguided, and either way may cause you to do a spit-take:
“Hello” is one of the top videos ever, still to this day.
There is also a comparison to Picasso soon after that nearly made me faint in delight. Read on, friends.
