Always Take The Fish.

The MTV/VH-1 Live8 coverage was extremely disappointing, to say the least. Thankfully, AOL has almost all of the performances archived. Yes, Mike, this means you can finally watch Tom Cochrane play "Life Is A Highway" right here.

Of course, I couldn't get the clips to load on my Mac and don't have sufficient rights to install the AOL media player here at work, so I'm stuck watching clips of Ricky Gervais.

DVD bootlegs on ebay were pulled.... but there's going to be a DVD to help raise the money that they didn't raise over the weekend.

I was getting brunch while it was on, and suddenly Bon Jovi was on the screen. I got excited as I watched them do Living on a Prayer...until they cut away from it in the middle of the bridge and started yapping away about nothing. I was pissed. I then watched them do this for every performance. Just even to get you excited and then leave you disappointed.

MTV can lick my balls.

I'm pretty sure that Live 8 wasn't about raising money...it was about raising awareness and increasing pressure for the major nations to forgive debt and increase relief...that being said, the eBay releases are despicable (but sadly predictable). I don't think I'd buy a DVD anyway - there were only a random few performances that I was interested in seeing, and I'm currently pulling 'em off of BitTorrent.

I noticed that iTunes put up a few tracks yesterday - Sgt. Pepper and one other McCartney one (which is humorous, considering none of his other tracks are on there)...I'd definitely buy one or two, based on the little I saw/heard.

On the AOL site the bill the video as follows:
LIVE 8 Highlights
From Mariah Carey to Pink Floyd, we've collected the most memorable performances of LIVE 8, the biggest organized concert ever.

Do they really think Mariah is there selling point? And do they really think she had the most memorable performance?
That is why no one uses aol anymore.
