No shit, Tempus Fugit!
The End of TRL

So, November marks the end of a ten-year era. MTV is canceling 'TRL'! All those boybands, pop princesses, punk rockers and rappers . . . all those videos and fangirls and crowds of teens in Times Square . . . not to mention the endless pimping of flicks and TV shows that just might appeal to a younger crowd by awkward adults who openly wished they were elsewhere.

Those were the days! Snarky Carson Daly capitalizing on Nsync vs. BSB, Britney vs. Christina, Blink 182 vs. Sum 41, Eminem vs. Everyone.

Occasionally I still turn on TRL just to get the vibe, even though it hasn't been the same for five years or more.

Can we just turn back the clock for a few days and re-visit pre-9/11 Pop Culture? I miss it.

(I'm not at all nostalgic about anything that happened before the year 2000.)

No shit. Me, too. (sigh)

So sad. Of course, TRL was never the same after Carson Daly left...

True. No Carson. No BSB. No fun.

Really? I remember rushing home from school everyday to watch. If I had the chance, I would have been one of the screaming girls in Times Square.

What an end...

Me, too! (... er, screaming women, I guess ...)

Good things always go first.
Where is that time machine when you need it????

Where did the time go? I just can't believe it's been seven years since I taped this show every day ... time flies when you're having fun!
