VMAs In A Nutshell (and some other stuff)

Every single blog and social media outlet has been blowing up with talk surrounding the 2013 VMAs. So I just had to look into what all the fuss was about.

Needless to say, I was as disappointed as I'm sure most of you were to uncover that what happened at the VMAs was in fact NOT a cleverly placed marketing strategy for promoting a Tim Burton sequel to Beetlejuice. Boo. Hiss. Shame on you MTV for getting my hopes up.

Moving on.

Here's what I did find out to be true about the fifth least imporant major awards show of the year (CMAs, ESPYs, TCAs, and SAGAs).

1. In true lame-stream fashion a repeating panel of music videos was up for pretty much every award.
2. MTV's idea of an artist to watch is the too-young-to-shave cliche Austin Mahone. It's a good thing he's still in diapers. He has a good place to put the poo that is his music video.
3. The only category with videos worth watching was the "Best Special Effects" category. Here Duck Sauce earned a deserved nomination as did Flying Lotus with their Elijah Wood starring video.

That's pretty much it. The rest was— besides predictable— just a bunch of twerking nonsense.


How about some videos that don't suck?
