Last week we got in there over at 770 broadway, over there in the village, we got in there and we did some work for the MTVu people, did some things that -- should you expose yourself to them -- will enter your mind like a semtex weevil and blow the whole fuckin nerve basket there into about ninety pieces. What we did is a taping for a show called The Freshmen. That involved us sitting on stools and watching music videos and critiquing them on-camera. Usually the program has college kids trying to drop the knowledge, but as you go to college in the first place because you don't know shit and are trying to find out one or two or -- in the best cases -- three things, and but since college students feel that they must act as though sometime early in their freshman year they already learned one of those things -- which act results in empty arrogance --, we're very sure our critiques will go down in MTVu history as wise and turbulent on an almost biblical level. Don't take that slight on college kids too personally, college kids -- we were in college, too, and that's exactly how we know about the rampant hubris. Now we're just as sure of ourselves, but with the added ingredient of nearly always being right, we've gone from 'really tired to be around' to 'really, really fucking fun to be around'. Hey but so we'll be hosting The Freshmen all week August 22nd through the 28th. Monday, August 22, is an especially hot day to watch MTVu because Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt is going to be a "Back to School Week All-Day Premiere" that day, which means that with the exception of the Freshmen episode we host that day, literally the entire 24 hours of programming that day will be the bear video over and over again, back to back. No, just kidding, but they will play it many times throughout the day, is our understanding, that that will mark the first showing of W.A.S. video footage on home territory. Equals BIG TIME.
