Sweet page! I have 3 pages, actually. 1 for our band, 1 for my own personal music page, and 1 for other shit. I play lead and sing in our Portland, Maine based jam band "Heavy Dime". There's not much up here for music, really. Most of it is heavy/goth/punk stuff, but we do have another jam band called "A Band Beyond Description" which plays out regularly, so I can get my fix there. Our band Heavy Dime is just starting up & trying to get things together, so be kind if you post comments please!

I'm digging your sites! The tunes sound sick and the layouts are great! Of course I'd be kind. I've got to reboot this old machine of mine and i'll add you guys as my friends!

i used to think myspace was like a big dating service, but now everyone is on it. it's great for networking and keeping in touch with friends.

those are my bands pages. neither are very mellow, but the second one is very trippy. so you some of you might enjoy it.

Haha! Beat you to it! Great version of Saturday Night, btw - VERY tight...nice! And Race is On is one of my favs of the old standard acoustics. We used to do that one once in a while but for some reason stopped. I think I'll suggest it at practice tonight - since it's my birthday, I don't think they can say no can they? I think it should be mandatory that if you practice on your birthday you should get free reign of song selection for the night! WhooOOOO!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks bro! Just accepted the friend thing on myspace!

Ya, the OMSN came out great! And I say that without being cocky. To me that is a live song and needs to be played live and feel the energy of a night's worth of great music. But we decided that was "my song" when we hit the studio and I was a bit scared that the tune wouldn't capture the same energy it does live.

Oh, hell ya you should pick most of the tunes tonight. Your band should realize they are lucky you are there tonight since I wouldn't be on my b-day.

Race is on is just a fun song! So is Big River which I heard you do and it just smokes. I dig the warm up in the begining where you don't give it away right off the bat!

Of course I have a MySpace. I'm in highschool. Usually people ask for my account address before they ask for my name. haha

One of my bands has a MySpace, too. It's just a guitar and a casio keyboard and some effects with the computer. Please, do NOT take us serious. We were laughing the whole time we were recording. Now I'm starting to even get sick of our stuff. I'll never get sick of Child Farm, though.

I'm on there, but I haven't done much with my page, or really have much of a clue about it. One of these days, I guess.....

I don't want a myspace. Why does everybody have them? I never got it.

IMO, myspace is the ideal for someone who wants a webpage for themself but doesn't want the hassels and expenses of setting one up.
