"...While hard to swallow, there's some doubt as to the authenticity of Brewster "Emcee" McCracken's MySpace page. For one, we're sure Brewster has way more friends than just Tom..."
"...Especially when you're the former Texas Youth Commission security director accused of having sex with teenage boys. Not a good look. This Mike Ward article spells out how former TYC official Ray Brookins, accused of molesting his teen charges, has a hot and heavy MySpace page, complete with pictures of him at the adult entertainment expo (i.e., porn convention) in Las Vegas..."
"...And, no, it doesn't have anything to do with his idiotic remarks about Barack Obama's personal hygiene. Instead, the odds on Biden's bid for the White House in 2008 are readily available to any Web surfer who spends a few minutes at MySpace.com..."
"...Searching "DTO," or "Dykes Taking Over," pretty much all of the links spin out of O'Reilly. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of outside confirmation beyond that. Unsatisfied, we took our quest to the most credible source for all groups underground: MySpace..."
"...Well, what a surprise to click open the MySpace this evening and find one of our own Austin lasses, Lisa G., as this week's Femme Tart of the Week on Top Femme! According to the freshly popped tart, "So I'm checking my blueberry [sic] at work and Fukn Bulldyke would like to be added as one of my friends. I knew something had shifted my paradigm." Apparently, Lisa's MySpace page was private, and Mr..."

"...Natural Fear invited me to a July show they were playing at the Red Eyed Fly with Petals on the bill. I couldn’t go but I checked out their Myspace page and read about Petals playing too..."
"...Her unfettered style derives from a pure youthful love of music that has yet to see her with a broken heart or a rotten experience with a record contract. Despite her complaint to Ray, her Myspace page is packed with gigs...."
"...At its frightened core, Paranoid Park is about the bridge of guilt that spans the crossing between innocent and innocence lost, kids and adults, however and in whatever form it may arrive. From a strictly filmmaking standpoint, it's unique and brutal in its beauty and the truth it tells, and so, too, is Van Sant's visual style, which visually shuffles VHS, Super-8, and 35mm alongside an equally nonlinear tale that features a cast of young people chosen almost entirely from the ranks of MySpace.com (most of whom, to judge from their performances here, are destined for bigger, if not greater, things)..."
"...It’s a heavy, tragic day in Austin music. Original cosmic soulman Rusty Wier, who held a Thursday residency at Saxon Pub for nearly 15 years, succumbed to liver cancer this morning after a two-year battle, his manager Vicky Moerbe confirmed on Myspace..."
"...was Sat., June 21. Regular Austin MySpacers (especially queer Austin MySpacers) may know "V" better as Virginiainc., a 2007 Austin transplant from Louisville, KY, whose positively viral blanketing of the social networking site made her a household name..."
"...Floyd Moore passed away Monday. His name won’t mean much unless you were around in the early 1970s or are from Port Arthur, but trust me when I say that if Austin gets to call itself weird, Floyd was one of the reasons. We struck up a MySpace correspondence a few months ago, when he wrote ragging me for not having gotten band lineage correct on a Uranium Savages piece I wrote some years back..."
"...In the UK they're already aces, chiefly due to their unstoppable lyrical firepower, yo, and a series of electro-beat-bomb cannonades (www.myspace.com/lesacvspip) led by the devastatingly on-target "Thou Shalt Always Kill." Sample brilliance:..."
"...Laura Barrett, Toronto, www.myspace.com/laurabarrett, Wednesday, 8pm, Habana Calle 6..."
"...If it hadn't been for Al Gore inventing the Internet and thus enabling global Friendstership and MyFaceSpacing, any number of UK acts would still be busking outside Steve Lamacq's flat. Chief among them is snarky Hammersmith native Lily Allen, who bypassed the whole label thing and went straight to the kids, uploading her first batch of catchiness directly to her MySpace page and scoring an iTunes superhit in the process..."
"...Allison, Mexico, www.myspace.com/allison, Saturday, 1am, Spiros..."
"...The s.i.g.i.t, Bandung, Indonesia, www.myspace.com/thesigit, Thursday, 12mid, B.D. Riley's..."
"...Gigglepants: Because you have to do something besides study if you're in college, this gaggle of young UT toilers manifests a sustained psychosomatic twitch they call improv. www.myspace.com/gigglepantsimprov..."
"...Brooklyn, Paris, www.myspace.com/aboutbrooklyn, Thursday, 11pm, Maggie Mae's..."
"...Allison (Mexico City) Rio, Fri., 1am; www.myspace.com/allison..."
"...While a no-show last year, hopefully Oslo sextet Turbonegro's absence was due to a sudden, countrywide shortage of sailor hats and eyeliner. Their MySpace states, "New year, new beers" (dude!), and we can expect a follow-up to last year's Party Animals (dude!) this year..."
"...wise to limit membership. In the early Facebook years, it was labeled 'MySpace for Elitists,' because you had to have an active college/university e-mail address..."
"...A-Laget, Bergen, Norway, www.myspace.com/alagetbergen, Thursday, 9:20pm, Fuze..."
"...Haunted folk-rock quartet Nathan, Keri Latimer and Shelley Marshall's Nettwerking tool. Patrick Watson plays the creepier Jeff Buckley to Dan Mangan's Damien Rice, but Watson can't touch Mangan's live ode to MySpace..."

"...I sent out a plea for help via MySpace, and surprisingly, quite a few of you put a lot of thought into your workout jams. I got everything from Rush’s “Moving Pictures” to L7’s “Wargasm,” but that didn’t feel right to me..."
"...The short life span of the quartet (www.myspace.com/chiefrival), which has been together more than two years but "only serious for one," has yielded gigs at the Mohawk, Red 7, Room 710, playing with pals Hotel Hotel, Salesman, and their "big brother" band, Balmorhea...."
"...Remember wearing a "sex, drugs, and rock & roll" T and yelling "paaarrrty!!!" while trying to cadge a brewski and get lucky? That's your kid. Have you looked at her MySpace page lately? It probably says she's 23 years old and trying to get laid...."
