MY MySpace page
isn't garish. I still hate MySpace, though.
Having said that... I am able to listen to Muse's new album in its entireity before its release next week. This is probably the only use I have for MySpace.

I made the same analogy to a couple of my students about a month ago.
Of course, since they were about five year's old when websites hit their most garish state, the comment was completely lost on them.

So old and yet so short! I'm not sure I have met you after all!
Actually, I did listen to part of the new Muse album, because I thought--hey, Muse! That's awesome! What did you think? I wasn't impressed with the three or four songs that I got through before the crappy Myspace player crashed.
Kids these days.

I liked it. It was less like "Absolution", which I wasn't thrilled with, and slightly more like "Origin of Symmetry" which I loved.

Hm. I am a terrible person, and don't actually own any of the physical albums. But looking over the track listing, I think I go the other way--I liked Absolution more than Origin on average, but I dig them both. I'll have to give the new album another go later today.
