Thomas: So I got a couple of new friends today on the Myspace page.
Belle: I saw that!
Thomas: But you know the worst part? I have yet to see anyone with a page that isn't absolutely hideous.
Belle: Yeah, like mine.
Thomas: Well, yours at least looks somewhat coordinated. But most people, it's like the Internet threw up.
Belle: Actually, you know what it's really like? Remember back when the Internet first got started? All the neon fonts and garish background images and huge titles?
Thomas: Oh no! You're right! When we all had blinking green text on orange backgrounds. I had a scrolling Bad Joke of the Day with the matinee tag, and embedded midi music.
Belle: Exactly. MySpace is the Web from 1992, but more annoying. Because at least we had the excuse that no-one knew what they were doing yet.
Thomas: It's a whole new wave of people discovering animated gifs and Java reflecting pools.
