How Video Killed the Video Star.

Interesting article in The New York Times: Outshining MTV: How Video Killd the Video Star, which is about how online video is impacting MTV and other aspects of music video culture. Favorite note:

...More and more CD’s are bundled with DVD’s, or reissued with DVD supplements, or followed by stand-alone DVD companions. From the Arctic Monkeys (who recently released “Scummy Man,” described as “a short film inspired by the song ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ ”) to Chris Brown (whose fans are invited to buy “Chris Brown’s Journey,” a DVD cash-in), extended music videos are finding a home in record stores.
Neat stuff.
