    Hell, I had to Google Myspace just to figure out what it was.

    It's not the IU kids I'd worry about, it's the fans and alumni. As an alum myself (one of the normal ones, I like to think!), I could tell you stories. Just a good idea to start a gig like that with a clean slate, and tidying up the social network stuff is a good idea. Looks like Dustin already has.

    So I'm not the only guy in America who isn't on MySpace or Facebook? :D

    Completely agree on the clean thing. But if the young kids aren't on MySpace, the older people (fans and alumni) certainly aren't.

    Just a thought. Has nothing to do with the greater point, which I agree with. Actually, I heard something about MySpace being on the verge of going under or something like that. Facebook and Twitter > MySpace, and it's not even close.

    I hope that was intended to be typed in blue. If not, I refuse to believe you didn't even know what it was. Not signed up, I would believe. But to not even know what it was? No way.

    Gracias folks. Page deleted. I'll just agree to disagree with you on musical tastes. I like punk and ska (and with guilt, some emo) Most don't. It's understandable.

    It's mostly whiny guys who wear as much makeup as chicks.

    Give me a sample. John Mayer, that type? Jason Mraz (I've never heard so much as a note)?

    The music can be pretty varied. It's kind of lost its meaning over the last few years and been applied to a ton of bands.

    The look, however, is distinctive:
