Rediscover the MTV Era with Music Video Time Machine Magazine

Print may be dead, but magazines live on! A new online publication that is prime for rediscovering '80s music and the golden era of music videos is Music Video Time Machine. The first issue is out now and focuses on the directors who brought us the iconic visuals for "Beat It" by Michael Jackson, "Let's Dance" by David Bowie, "Close to the Edit' by Art of Noise, and many others.

The featured interview is with director John Landis who was behind the lens for hit films like The Blues Brothers and Coming to America. He was also responsible for giving us legendary music videos including what most would declare as the greatest of all-time, Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Music Video Time Machine also delves into the top music videos of the '90s, going behind the scenes with director Samuel Bayer who gave us the high school gym concert in Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and the bee girl in Blind Melon's "No Rain."

The man behind Music Video Time Machine is entertainment journalist Stephen Pitalo who previously wrote the Golden Age of Music Video blog for 11 years and currently gives presentations about the evolution of music videos at conventions, colleges, and festivals. He also moderated last year's MTV 40th Anniversary Panel at New York Comic Con and will be back in 2022 for the panel "Where Were You in 1992? A Look Back at Iconic Music Videos."
