Take the computer flirting scene between Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy in Pretty in Pink, multiply it by a few bazillion gigabytes, and you've got myspace.com. With millions of profiles of computer-addicted geeks around the world, it's basically a glorified, digitized singles bar. But the site is more than Friendster's hipper usurper; it's also the best way for local groups to connect and be heard. While real websites require cash and a modicum of computer savvy to maintain, any idiot can set up a free profile on myspace. Within minutes, bands can upload photos, MP3s and press kits onto a page that's easy to read and, most important, easy to find. It's kind of like purevolume.com -- only with way more hotties.
