I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix ....Since the early 1960s, there has been an annual rumor about the teevee program The Real World doing a season in Washington, which is a city known as the capital of America. And this year, FINALLY, the important MTV grunge “camgirl” show is really for real being videotaped right here in DC. But not everyone is thrilled beyond belief — one person, in fact, has bravely launched a free blog account about how maybe it would’ve been vv good had the entertainment cable show The Real World done a season in Washington maybe during some earlier year but definitely not this year because what is even up with that?

    FWIW living on cam pioneer Jennicam lived in DC… so its come full circlish

  • NewSpence

    Sigh. Pedro.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Wait, I thought the original Marion Barry tapes were from a season of the Real World.

  • rmontcal

    “alcohol-induced spit up” is worth going to that blog.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Still, congratulations DC, you have finally caught up with Seattle, circa 1995.

  • Hooray For Anything

    Suck it up DC, almost every other major city has been besmirched by that show- there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have to suffer the indignity those of us in San Francisco, New York, Philly, et al have.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Is it OK to be offended that it exists at all? I don’t care whether or not its in DC especially.

  • JohnnyMeatworth

    MTV’s still on cable?? Wow, who knew?

  • The Cold Sea

    [re=334239]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: Seattle. Province. DC. Capital.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    Could that photo qualify as an awkward family photo? Because WTF is Judd doing with that arm? I get it, you loved Pam and all that, but sheesh.

  • Joshua Norton

    The last time I watched that show was when the San Francisco cast in the picture was on. Has anything happened since then?

  • lizard scum

    So, rest assured residents of 2000 S St. NW, we don’t shoot people anymore, we promise.

    Yeah, but I thought a new spirit of Hope had also entered the town, so we can keep our fingers crossed, right? Just remember to buy your carbon offset if you choose that route.

  • norbizness

    Rachel, the Reactionary Latina. Ah, to be young and watching MTV again.

    How did Real World Billings pan out?

  • charlesdegoal

    I can understand that the people of DC, with their limited voting rights, would get behind such a completely trivial issue as a (poor) substitute for genuine involvement in the democratic process.

  • Mad Farmer Manifest

    Turn the room into a car, drive it off a fucking cliff.

    (Bonus points if anyone knows what song this is from.)

  • James Garfield’s Ghost

    This is following a brave tradition of hating on The Real World for coming to your town. Here in Chicago though, people threw paint on their doorway, broke some windows of the loft (which is now a 3 floor gym in a recently gentrified area of the city) and started a poster campaign against the show. (this all stemmed from the neighborhood formely being a very artist friendly/cheap rent district). So grow some balls DC … GO FOR BLOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDD!!!!!!!!

  • dijetlo

    Someday in the future, historians will look back at the pernicious societal cancer known as MTV and lay the responsibility for it on the doorstep of my generation. I can only say, we didn’t know…it was cute back then, just a collection of racy music videos…we had no idea it would turn into…this. My God, we should have strangled it in it’s cradle, I’m so sorry…so, so sorry…

  • Come here a minute

    Ever since MTV stopped forwarding racist jokes, I have turned it off like a radio.

  • Johnny Zhivago

    I’m waiting for a season of “Operacion Repo” to be filmed in D.C, with the repo team exclusively focused on taking away cars from congressmen and their staff – so we can see these idiots being maced and beaten up legally.

  • Pat Pending

    Angel-headed hipsters, they are decidedly not…

  • Joshua Norton

    So which one is MTV and which one is VH1? I’m always getting them confused.

  • lizard scum

    [re=334261]dijetlo[/re]: I blame the Boomers for everything, but in this case, the company is partially owned and run by the 97-year-old Sumner Redstone.

  • iantenna

    well i, for one, can’t wait for the amazing gov’t oriented group project and the brilliant political discourse it invokes.

  • drrty martini

    Oh, my god that blog is boring. Hosting the Real World is now seen as some sort of cultural validation? Here I thought it was having your local soul food joint on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.

  • Joshua Norton

    When music videos first came out, I though Madonna was Cindy Lauper with a better hair do.

  • Johnny Zhivago

    [re=334277]iantenna[/re]: Like stealing the Holy Grail or JFK’s brain from the National Archives?

  • Mad Farmer Manifest

    [re=334263]norbizness[/re]: Not even close.

  • Hooray For Anything

    [re=334250]Joshua Norton[/re]: Not much other than lots of drunken threesomes in hot tubs, drunken hookups with random strangers who think it would be super awesome be seen hooking up with somebody on a reality show, and drunken shouting matches between roomates. Oh, and one cast member bitch slapped another cast member in Seattle and it was awesome.

  • magic titty

    Howl alt-text? Ken Layne is just so fancy. He probably owns a waffle maker.

  • hobospacejunkie

    Just what the City of Hopey needs, a bunch of wannabe/failed actors pretending to not be pretending to live a normal life, like any young person would in a 20,000ft² house, with no money problems or even a fucking job. Yeah, every city could use a group of these people. To bludgeon to death with a blunt instrument until only dental records can (maybe) identify the body. It wouldn’t stop the foreclosure or relieve the hunger pangs, but it sure would feel good.

    Can I have that angry fix now?

  • DangerousLiberal

    [re=334244]The Cold Sea[/re]: Seattle (or SFO, or Chicago, or whereever): Rio
    Washington: Brasilia.

    Best alt text ever, also. Can we shoot these losers full of smack now?

  • StoneAge

    I think the fourth plane was supposed to hit this house. It was just off by a few years.

  • StoneAge

    “…talk to the world about art, music, sex, guitar construction, conservative politics, grief.”

    One of these things is not like the others,
    One of these things is not the same…

  • StoneAge

    [re=334463]StoneAge[/re]: Wrong post, Einstein.

  • expatinOz

    I used to watch 120 min in the late 80s and early 90s and then I got to college, found the joys of college radio and lost the ability to afford cable. Which I still have not gained. This “network” still airs? Is Yo! MTV Raps still on?
