God, sometimes life is SO UNFAIR. Like, I have a dollar and want a Coke Zero but the vending machine only has Diet Pepsi. Or I have a dollar and want Peanut M&M’s but the vending machine only has plain M&M’s. Or I have a dollar bill and the machine only takes coins. I could go ON and ON, but I think you would have too many nightmares about the problems I encounter when attaining snacks.
However, in a world of unfair predicaments, there is perhaps one situation that is the most unfairest of them all: John Tesh’s music, which currently is playing on my Enya/Yanni Pandora channel? Nope! I will tell you what is truly terrible . . . .
No one remembers the show FTV, not even Youtube!
I watched FTV back in 1985 when I was a wicked little kid living in the suburbs of Boston and shopping at Market Basket. I have no idea when it was on, what channel it was on, or heck even what the hell it was about. I just remember liking it. According to IMDB,
In this series, the players perform in comedy sketches that are predominately parodying the typical fare of MTV such as the music videos. In addition, there are regular sketches of pop music oriented feature characters as well as performances by various musical guest stars.
Well, there you have it! But where you DON’T have it is anywhere else on the Internet, even though it costarred Eagles guitarist Don Felder! His career must have been very “Desperado” at the time!
I also remember that actress Bridget Michele was a featured player. She later went on to much success in my beloved show Rags to Riches, which lasted a whopping one season. But at least you can find THAT on youtube!
FTV may be more obscure than the episode of Sister Kate featuring Milli Vanilli.
