So long and farewell MTV Philippines
"I'd like to begin by thanking you for being here today, as we bid farewell to what was to most, a dear friend - to others, a lover - and to a select few, a slave driving partner that drove you mad (but brought out a level of creativity you never thought yourself capable of producing)."-reads Sarah Meier's note via Facebook, which she also tweeted about today.
This is probably the saddest story since the departure of the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien ..Although admittedly I have not been a BIG fan of MTV for the passed decade, I sure feel a little sad for the people who worked so hard to make the show survive.
John Joe Joseph as well blogged recently via tumblr "The One thing that made my stay at MTV the best was THE CREW!!! .. Epic in every way! i’m glad we were able to help local talent shine."
To all the VJ's and crew of the late MTV Philippines, thank you and hey, you were so lucky to meet all the cool musicians and artists for the love of the show - Be proud!
I leave you now with Picoy Cruz's cool MTV Philippines Beatbox Advertisement.
