    This week I have mostly been obsessed with myspace.

    I can't believe how huge this has got. The amount of hilarious emo/ teenage/ poser-types with photos of themselves at arms length provides me with soo much entertainment. I love it.

    The music side of it is a nice idea, with these featured artists combined with unsigned groups getting a bit of exposure. Will it reach the stage that myspace.com is an essential part of every bands profile? a participation pre-requisite (to quote DJ Format)?

    It's actually becoming a bit of an addiction for me. I cruise through various profiles, search for people I know, flaunt from friends of friends to friends of their friends and discover I know these people, all the while smiling.

    I think the days of being smug about Myspace and being in a majority are dead. It's actually pretty cool for staying in touch with friends and keeping up to date with lesser-known bands. I think it's alright, like.

    Ah shut up Gareth. MySpace is fantastic. I have found it to be one of the most pleasant time-wasting tools since Livejournal. It makes self-love a most delightful past time. I'm even starting to fancy myself - it's wonderful.

    Did I say anything negative about it?!

    Myspace is good for what I use it for; Keeping up with friends and being up to date on bands I like. However, I HATE having to delete 10+ people I don't know every single day and bands who just add everyone regardless of the person's taste. Also I hate those stupid emo (for lack of a better word) dicks with their stupidly cluttered profiles packed with videos, songs, quizes and other junk that noone cares about.

    Yeh, but you gotta love their haircuts and strenuously perfected and styled photos.

    its a handy tool if you are in a band, but the amount of bugs in it really pisses me off :cry:

    It's always "down for maintenance" and it NEVER remembers my login properly with cookies and it's far too slow and its full of spam.

    You're one to talk, given that you sit nightly staring at Dave House's myspace page, singing an EMO version of 'Something Like a Phenomenon' interspersed with 'Eh? Eh?' and w*nking yourself to tears.
    Aren't you supposed to be in Newcastle anyway?! I didn't think they had the internet there. Only coal hooked up to t'wireless.

    Here, leave Dave House outta this! He's an all round great guy. He doesn't half like checking his emails though.

    I am in Newcastle but with 8 hours or so to spare in the city I needed things to do and the internet seemed like a good option. I even managed to spend an hour or so trying to find somewhere with the internet and was told that the only public internet access in Newcastle is 4 shitty PC type things in the bottom of Virgin Megastore. So you're half right.

    Anyway, back to Myspace. I have 3 messages that I want to read and all it will let me do is play bloody Pac Man. I'll agree that it is full of bugs but I will also agree that it's fantastic and I probably spend far too much time on it!!!!
