Love your myspace page and you are still a youngin’ to me! Pink/Green is the way to go according to you and my Momma! 😉 Stay fierce with it sistah!
I know many people via myspace too who REFUSE to be on other websites and I actually have met some cool people via myspace who are artists on there. So, I am not leaving!
Myspace power! 😉

Thanks Jennifer! lol. It’s weird, INTERNET Time goes by so fast. Anything I did on the web a year ago always feels more like 5 years ago. 2003 feels like eons in Internet Time.
I think a lot of geeks on the web like to reminisce about what is good and bad about the web, but really, no matter what *is* actually good livelihood is always wherever the masses are. MySpace has a firm grip on everyone right now, and there’s not much we can do about it. So, suck it up, keep it moving and stop with these petty protest days.

I always see fresh MySpace layouts like yours, and I think about freaking it myself …
Then I remember that content is king in my world — the text is more important than the presentation. Your statements about how hard it is to hack — which I experienced a little last year when I participated in the ill-considered Entourage contest — made me tired. I’ll take plain old vanilla flavored HTML any day of the week myself, if I feel the need to design. Which is rare these days.
I was thinking about the dominance of MySpace tonight, especially since I opened my first Facebook page the other day (and yet you haven’t befriended me there — what up? >8^). If I’d have come to Facebook first — heck, if everyone had — it could have been a contender. But MySpace is too entrenched now, too much a fact of life, from movie campaigns to its shockingly large populace. The UI twitchiness of Facebook doesn’t help — how long did it take me to find out how to make a badge? — so, like internal combustion engines and the electoral college, we gotta make due with what we’ve got, I suppose.
