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.

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.

Now.

How about some videos that don't suck?
