Welcome to MTV.COM!!!

Well, it's been an interesting startup, I've been learning alot about UNIX
and the Net as I go along, and so far it's been fun.

Here's a brief rundown on this site:

First and foremost I have to make it very clear that is NOT
sponsored by MTV Networks. Although they are aware of my cyberspace
dwellings they aren't yet ready to commit to a project like this, but I
have their bessing in spreading the gospel ofcourse ;-)

So this ofcourse means that I am paying for my T1 connection myself, which
is maintained by the fine folks at Digital Express.

Although the startup has been rather slow, look for this site to be really
hoppin' within the next couple of weeks. My personal assistant Ken Clark
( will be posting a weekly newsletter, we'll be putting
bloopers and outtakes up in quicktime format, look for digital presskits
to appear, and yes, even mailboxes for Beavis and Butthead, huh, huh,heh.heh.

I intend to post programming grids for MTV along with important
development in the music bizz.

Please also note the "Cyber-Sleaze" which is available through gopher, ftp
or the extended versions which are on the listprocessor, the mailing list
is and you should place the following in the
message :

subscribe CYBER-SLEAZE your name

This extended reports are shareware, and donations are appreciated.

>This just in...I'm in the process of of setting up a WWW server that will
blow the socks off your Mosaic viewer!<

This is just the start of and I hope that you will enjoy your stay
here. Suggestions and comments are always welcome!

All for now.
