I originally posted this one year ago today. It’s gotten the most clicks, the most comments and the most shares of anything posted here, and “Martha Quinn” brings more people to the blog than any other search term. MTV turns 31 today, and Martha Quinn, in case you’re wondering, is now 53 but doesn’t look it.
