It was forty years ago today when MTV first went live on the television waves and began entertaining the masses with music videos and commentary from their video disc jockeys or VJs as they became known as. Historically speaking, MTV launched with the video by The Buggles and their song “Video Killed The Radio Star” which I’ve embedded for your viewing pleasure down below. Though I’m a tried and true Metalhead, I’ve always had a soft spot for some of the New Wave classics and this song is one of my favorites to this very day. Enjoy.
I am not lying to you when I say that I cannot believe that I have been using Twitter for “10” years as of this point in time. Frankly speaking, I don’t think I have even touched upon the social network here on the website outside of suggesting that our readers follow us in an occasional post. We signed up in 2009 for PiercingMetal and were told that it was “the hot thing to do” at the time. I discussed this move as a part of a series of social networking narratives and you can find the thoughts on this course of action by clicking HERE. The link will bring you to the focused Twitter thoughts of the time and that is way back in early 2010. Below you will find a screen captured JPG of that profile’s very first tweet.
