I finally figured out who Adam Curry was

After listening to Mr. Podcast himself for a while, on his Daily Source Code podcast, I finally figured out who Adam Curry was. I even peeked at his Flikr pictures and that didn't even jog my memory. His name was vaguely familiar, but when he mentioned that he had been a celebrity since being a teenager, I thought, do I know this guy? Finally it dawned on me that he was the VJ on MTV in the late 80's, when I was addictied to MTV. Personally, I loved Martha Quinn, and thought Adam was a bit full of himself (and his hair!). I asked Doug if he remembered Adam Curry, the VJ on MTV, and he replied "The black guy?", and I said no, the blond guy with the big hair. This conversation happened twice, too funny. Couldn't find the guy Doug was talking about on Google, for the next time we have this conversation.

Hmmm...Adam Curry sounds familar....but my MTV VJ memory was of Kennedy.

I guess that might be a "guy thing"...huh? (though she is apparently a conservative/libertarian ... and so maybe a conservative/libertarian VJ might have been strangely attractive to me.... I'm not quite sure what that says about me :-)
