If A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words, then videos … MMM goes MTV 🗓

Faculty, students, residents, come one come all. We invite you to join us for our first foray into Music this year but with a twist, what is your favorite Music Video and why???

What are the standout vids that blew your mind, sometimes elevating an average song further than possibly imagined? Hello, MADONNA, 😱

Please bring a favorite video or two for sharing on January 27th at 6:30pm.

We are not big on rules but in the interest of respect for all present we do ask the following:

  1. No long videos: keep them at 2-3 minutes if possible. We would prefer you bring two or three brief ones rather than one long one; that way most people get to share
  2. Sharing YouTube clips works best but please check the clip beforehand for AV quality, especially volume
  3. Be prepared to discuss why this video and / or song is important: when did you first see it? Who were you with? Why does it speak to you? What do you know about how it was made?
  4. No violence, vulgarity or overt sexuality: this is not an invitation to make people uncomfortable. While we are not in the business of censorship, we will immediately shut down & remove inappropriate material and those responsible.
  5. As always, be respectful; all choices and reasons for such are valid and welcome.
