the club has closed
Last night we were looking for something to watch at 1am, and because our cable system plays your last-viewed channel in the corner of the listings, we always put it on something innocuous like a music channel. I set it to MTV2, which was showing 120 Minutes, but before I popped the guide on, we noticed that Matt Pinfield was sitting there. And, "hey, that guy, it's whatshisname who was the old host, Dave Kendall". We decided to watch and see what on earth they were doing on the show, and it turned out it was the very last broadcast of 120 Minutes ever. Now, it's not like we've actually gone out of our way to watch the show in a good 5-6 years, probably, but it was still weirdly sad to see it go. Sort of like when you find out some actress you like in old movies has just died, and you didn't even know they were still alive. We ended up watching the whole 2 hours of "classic" 120 Minutes videos (apparently all picked by Matt Pinfield and Dave Kendall), most of which we hadn't seen in ages. The final video of 120 Minutes was Siouxsie & the Banshees, "Kiss Them For Me". And then that was it.
