You know that feeling you get when you hear new music on the radio? I do. And it's not good. It's full of what I call "beard music" and is that folky, four on the floor with the kick drum, lets see how "ironic" we can be crap day in and day out. Then I

As I stroll around the internet from time to time looking up bands for various reasons (choosing an opening act for my band, etc.), I see a growing number of artists who have gotten away from having their own website and just utilizing Facebook as their main page. Well, what's interesting is I remember writing a post on a discussion forum similar to the blog I'm writing now. Except exchange the word Facebook for Myspace.
