After you claimed adults who read Harry Potter were 'victims of a marketing campaign', I thought you'd really reached a real peak, but that statement has blown it out of the water.

You're constant melodrama is hilarious. For the record, I agree with sentiment and completely hate MySpace and the entire culture built around it, but for God's sake look at what you're saying.

my space is alright it's true its full of weirdo's wanting friends. However it's a good way of listening to bands and seeing whats going on without trawling through countless websites. Plus its free advertising for bands just starting up, which is always good.

It's only a website if it offends your sensiblities don't go to it, it's that easy. It's always the people that bitch about things that create the "scene".

I've been enrolled on myspace for less than 24 hours, and already it's pissing me off.

Little bitch bastards who are known on here, post on every single cool band page to either a) gain some recognition for their paltry accolades or b) try and win some respect from artists who are superiority better, and thus achieve a status of respect. You know who you are...

I'd also like to say that myspace is a den for the hollow, and that I feel completely cheapened even for contemplating the idea of joining, let alone setting up a page.

Rupert Murdoch, if it is true he now owns the rights etc, should die a fucking horrible death. Media moguls like him create the clandestine lies that appear on the front pages of your newspapers. What can I say? Hes a disciple of popular culture, and theres no way the masses are going to listen to the likes of me.

One last rant, the DJ in moshulu tonight (main room) was shite.

One might ask you the same thing.

Anyway' date=' whilst myspace is full of attention whores and scenesters yada yada yada, people cannot deny it is proving to be a very useful tool in terms of promotion for bands. Far beyond anything like purevolume.com [/color']

I slut my band on myspace...I speak to other bands through myspace and I also speak to out of town venues through myspace... in my feeble attempts to begin to construct my bands gig calendar for 2006.

Believe it or not it can be useful and getting feedback from bigger and more successful bands is great, I've had some good pointers sent through... so in many aspects I suppose it can be useful. It is also relatively good as a tool for listening to bands before you go to a gig.

Agreed, there are a lot of people who like the look of their own faces too much on there... However, name me any place where that doesn't occur. It's on here, it's in the media, it's everywhere. You live in the 21st century... either go on a eternal generic backpacking trip to yukagogogmanova or live with it.

If only it was actually reliable - if nothing else, Myspace is incredibly shit compared to most websites when it comes to the thing actually working half the time :|

Your constant and embarassing need to make yourself appear as different as possible from everyone on these boards, you're like a 13 year old Goth with better vocabulary.

The amount of people who say they've seen me on myspace is disturbing.

Discuss.

i told you that it's taking over.

and it really is good for e-meeting people and promotion (as i said before).

I can never take your comments seriously when you poorly punctuate.

Oh Al, Al Al Al. I get what you're saying, but it's also a nice little advertisement for bands, that allows you to hear a bit of what they're about, and find out if you'd want to hear more. Like any resource, I think it can be used for more nefarious purposes, but it can be groovy now and then.

Yesterday some 15-year-old from California sent me a message saying my music was 'cool', which I just thought was ace, and made me feel all fluffy inside.

It's like owning a guitar in a way, you can use it to play beautiful music, or you can beat a small mammal to death with it. The choice is simple.

I made a couple of grammar mistakes but my punctuation looks fine to me.

Feel free to correct me though, I trust you as a competent punctuator.
