Humpday Video: M.I.A. “Born Free”

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

We here at Broke-Ass Stuart remember when there was an entire network devoted to playing awesome new music videos. Men named Pinfield and women named Idalis would introduce block after block of original music videos from various genres interspersed with super fucking edgy interviews with musicians and video directors, which would be followed by news and pop cultural updates delivered by an aging rocker in a suit and tie. Those days are gone, videos have given way to shows about dating, being from the Jersey Shore and the monotonous reality of blonde haired girls sipping lattes and texting people named Brody. BUT- music videos ARE being made, and our mission is to bring you one a week on Wednesday, to help you get over that hump.

BAS Writers is mostly a collection of articles written by people for the early days of this site. Back then nobody knew that snarky articles they were writing could come back and haunt them when job searching a decade later.
