back when chevy chase was cool…

With all the hoopla about Pitchfork’s new online TV site, there is also chatter online about the lack of quality channels that play music videos. No doubt that has been a topic for years, maybe even a decade now? Regardless, there are high-quality music channels that focus on what we at MiS are all about: MUSIC. That just depends if your cable provider is aware of them and also kind enough to subscribe to them. Fortunately for me, I’m graced with:

IMF (International Music Feed)

MTV Hits (You wouldn’t really click on a Mtv link, would you?)

VH1 Classic (Tune into ‘Totally 80’s’)

I was tuning into a block of videos that were just focused on the 80’s and whoa! Quality! If a YouTube inspired post wasn’t so heavy on the filler, I should be posting all the videos I witnessed in just a 15 minute span. Here is one that just maybe inspired those Brooklyn boys, Vampire Weekend….

    Chevy Chase isn’t still cool?

    “Oh, I was just smelling – smiling. I was just blouse – browsing. I, uh, heh heh. Well, I guess it just wouldn’t… Oh hee hee, it wouldn’t be the Christmas shopping season if the stores were any less hooter than they – HOTTER than they are. Whew. It is warm in here, isn’t it?”

    No dude, he was way past his prime in that clip. Fletch was his last gasp at hipness. When he bailed from SNL trying to be a star started his decline. He is a self-important jackass whose ego outgrew his cranium.

    Coming correct with music channels and ’80’s videos. I love it. I was fascinated with this video back in the day. I’ve enjoyed many laughs because of Mr. Chase.

    JT, you should ask Mahaffey if he thinks Chevy Chase is still cool…

    JPeepers: I actually purposely didn’t pull from Fletch or Caddyshack, but the last NL’s in posing whether he was still cool at that point. He might not have been in the space-time continuum we are limted to without a flux capacitor, but he was still playing Clark Griswold.

    Many former SNL cast members have had similar fates of grandiose self-importance. At least he’s still alive.

    At least someone got the Self reference…
