The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Because all the cool kids are doing it

I am neither cool nor kid, but what the hell:

If nothing else, this proves (as though proof were needed) that I have no shame.

This is just like the stock market, you know. It'll go up as long as the average Joe has a healthy fear of it. Once you get wind that the paperboy just bought a Lexus with stock money, you need to get out.

At this point, I declare MySpace to be no longer cool. Bang goes several billions of Murdock's dough, but what the hell. MySpace overtook Friendster, what will overtake MySpace?

Dustbury, that's what. Get in on the ground floor.

Pretty much everything has a short shelf life these days, and the last time I got in on the ground floor of something, they built the ceiling too low and I wound up with a concussion.

I've been a frequent visitor to your site. (I don't comment often because there isn't much to add to your wisdom!)

It was fun to visit your Myspace page so I could get a picture of the man behind Dustbury. (Photo as well as biographical)

Welcome to the world of the shameless! At least you have completed your profile. It's still on my list of things to do (somewhere towards the bottom of the abyss).

Actually, I think the historians will note this as the exact moment when MySpace jumped the shark.

Shows you how unhip I am-I hadn't even heard of MySpace till a month or two ago.

I hear they've got cars with pneumatic tires now, too.

Rupert Murdoch, who paid ungodly millions for MySpace, would be turning over in his grave were he actually, um, dead.

If Id known you were that desperate for amusement I could have sent you an invitation to www.vox.com.

It's official: the shark has been jumped.
