One Booty Shake Away from a Hoveround


These days my daytime TV begins with a hefty dose of VH1, MTV's aging cousin. When VH1 came on the scene it was marketed to my parents, a kinder, gentler music video channel. Now that MTV has all but given up videos the videos were given to VH1 as a gift -a loud, obnoxious, angsty gift. Those of us who grew up with Michael Bolton on VH1 have a hard time with this transition sometimes. Just this morning I sat slack-jawed, staring at the TV, wondering if Shakira's momma ever had a talk with her about "less being more" and the girl took it literal. I was apalled at the lack of clothing on the girl and sent a tweet saying,



And then I had a bran muffin and prune juice and sat there trying to decide if Lady Gaga is a boy or a girl. Not that it really matters....it's just that she's so both.

And I am so old.

Oh I so totally agree. I saw the new Shakira thing the other day and I tell you my mouth was on the floor. I miss the old MTV and VH1 days. You only get videos early in the AM of VH1 and that is it, not that they are any good.

Growing up, we always went to Nana's on the 4th of July. Always. There was no option, no variance, it was always to Nan's for the no...
