The Huffington Post (3 February 2011)

“A few months back, one of my favorite sources of raunchy, honest commentary—a Twitter handle by the name of @NotGaryBusey—ousted MySpace as “The PT Cruiser of the internet.” Like most funny and offensive jabs, the humor here is planted firmly in truth. The website, which was once a haven for budding musicians and music streaming, has since been surpassed by other more innovative and user-friendly platforms. It’s a sad shift for those who have been loyal fans of MySpace since the pre-Facebook years, and a delight to the current web-savvy music lovers who are ready to get their hands (ears?) dirty with a new breed of music websites.”
