Welcome to the New Myspace! Gone are the days of feverishly stalking your latest crush, spending endless hours creating bulletins and filling out surveys that include the important questions such as “What was the last thing you touched?”

The new guys over there at Myspace have taken our old friend, added a dynamic user interface, loaded it with a robust music library and enhanced profiles to appeal to designers and musicians alike. By selecting your intended use upon registering, your New Myspace profile will enable the appropriate functions for you to do your thing (e.g. video upload for filmmakers and music upload for musicians).

Bigger and more brand friendly

Brands will have no complaints with the creative opportunity New Myspace’s 1600 x 1024 profile image yields. The new profile layout also features a 130-character allotment to describe yourself/brand.

Despite the site being deeply rooted with it’s music browsing and sharing capabilities, users are still very much able to produce text (1024 character limit), photo and video posts that can be viewed on user’s connection feeds.  Posts can then easily be shared to Twitter and Facebook.

5 Memorial Day Weekend Must Haves by Jerry Rizzo

Standard

It’s Memorial Day Weekend at last and oh how sweet it is to be on the heels of summertime once again.  Whether you’re cutting out of the office early to venture into the wilderness or you played hooky to beat the traffic down to Sandy Hook, there are a few common things that all of us look forward to indulging in every Memorial Day Weekend.

I’ve compiled a short, but vital list of must haves for having the ideal Memorial Day Weekend.

BBQ.

You already know what’s on the menu this weekend.  Something sweet. Something spicy. There’s something for everyone when the charcoal is lit.  From brats to burgers, there’s never a better time to feast on good grillin’ than Memorial Day Weekend. www.grilling.com is a great site for grille masters to round-up a few recipes that will really wow the crowd this weekend.

Beach.

Now’s your chance to show off that hard earned beach bod or lack there of, but either way who cares? It’s time to heat the beach or “the shore” to some.  It’s time to open up the old beach house, kick back, turn up the Tom Petty and relax.  The sights and sounds of the ocean grant instant clarity after a long time apart.

Beer.

Mother Nature’s nectar.  Nothing beats a cold brew or two (or twenty for some). Before you purchase your usual light beers this Memorial Day, consider investing in some of these Summer ales.  Your taste buds will thank you.  One of my personal favorites is Shock Top’s Raspberry Wheat Belgian-Style Ale. Dare to be bold in your beer selection this weekend and always drink responsibly.

Yard Games.

Here’s a list of yard games to get your party started this weekend.  Best of luck to you cornholin’ maniacs!  I heard Aunt Millie has been working on her underhand toss in the off-season.

Live Music.

Nothing like live outdoor music to tap your feet to in the Summertime.  Whether it’s a local act or Prince himself make it a point to take in some tunes this weekend.  With that said, I am going to leave you with one of my all-time favorite Summertime feel good anthems.  Ladies and gentleman, the Zac Brown Band live!!!

HAVE A SAFE AND FUN MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
