I watch MTV as well as VHI daily while working in my studio. I am quite inspired by the art direction of the rock videos. The interviews are reflective of a generational culture different from my own, and I find helps to keep my thinking fresh.

Yes! I know one day, I'll look up from my computer monitor and witness a MTV musician with an extropic flare.

MTV did a program here in LA called "The Couch." It canceled before it really got off the ground, but they did ask a couple of LA extropians to be guests.
