Happy New Year! On this episode of How Was Your Week, one of the authors of I Want My MTV, the fantastic oral history of MTV, ROB TANNENBAUM is here! And Rob is all to happy to talk to us about the Canadian almost-beauty queen who played the teacher in the "Hot For Teacher" video, the '80s versus the '60s in the pop culture status canon, Prince's on-set whispering techniques, and Cher's wonderful comeback at the first-ever VMA's.
Plus, how much Guns N' Roses' videos would cost, with inflation! David Fincher Versus Michael Bay! How Pauly Shore represents sexual slavery, in Julie's mind! The satirical origins of the "Cherry Pie" video! And why "Downtown" Julie Brown and Adam Curry are the same (seemingly rotten) person.
Also, Julie discovers an online brotherhood that wants no part of her membership! The Today Show's target audience is found to be cats! A tweet from Siggy Flicker! Things We Wish We Didn't Know! News of exciting progress made in the Linda Lovelace biopic! And exciting details about the February 2nd How Was Your Week Live show at the Bell House.
A pop culture-palooza of wonderful show-ness for your face and spirit.
