MySpace is Terrible

Writing (and playing music) here basically serves two goals: A) practice, and B) steadily lowering the number of people who take me seriously. I count it tremendously successful on both counts. But to accelerate the process, I created a MySpace page for the pretentious solo project* as an experiment. You can find it here.

If you ever needed evidence that the best product is not necessarily the winner, try MySpace. I don't know anything about creating a social networking site, but I know that it's got to be better than that. Comments are handled in a very clumsy way. No-one tells you this, but bands need to sign up in a completely different section from the rest of the site. The default layout is hideous. All in all, it frightens me.

*Please, please, please do not ever take this seriously. People who take themselves seriously on the Internet are rapidly becoming one of my pet peeves. I would like to issue a disclaimer right now that almost all of the Internet, including the parts I didn't write, is most likely a colossal joke.
