Picture yourself with your favorite band playing at your birthday party. Now imagine that all you had to do was message them on their MySpace page, and they would come to your house to play for you, just because you said that their music was inspiring. Wouldn't that be awesome? That's what happened to one fan of Shiny Toy Guns. According to a news story I heard, a girl said that she sent a message to the new band via MySpace, and the next day, they traveled across the country to play on her front porch at a party she was having.

What began as a confluence of musical tastes has become a jazz-funk explosion for the Hagerstown band Junk. Now the band is hoping to take it to the next level. With a demo complete, the band is working on its debut album, said founding member Scott Reed, bassist and the band's unofficial frontman. They hope the debut album will land them higher-profile gigs and allow bandmates to quit their day jobs. Junk performs Sunday at Firestone's Restaurant & Bar in Frederick, Md. Junk's sound started off as a hip-hop-jazz hybrid, with a live DJ, though minus the rappers.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - More than half of the seventh-grade students in the Chambersburg Area Middle School auditorium stood Monday morning when Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett asked if they had Web pages with MySpace.com, Xanga or other social networking Web sites. Corbett followed by asking those older than 14 to sit down. Few did. "You guys lied," Corbett told the audience, explaining that the age to sign up for MySpace is 14. The state's chief law enforcement officer told the students they should go home and remove their names from the network.

Late last August, a group of guys from the general Williamsport area joined together to make some music. Jeans-and-T-shirt-clad high schoolers Justin Parks, Dylan Deneen, Josh Appenzellar, and Garret Cook eventually came to be the "straight up rock 'n' roll" band known as Fuze. In the basement of Fairplay home of one of the band members, the band recently let Pulse writers sit in on one of their practices and pop a few questions to see what kind of sparks fly when someone lights this Fuze.

There is an episode of "The Simpsons" in which Bart, after taking a new prescription drug for attention-deficit disorder and subsequently having paranoid delusions, discovers that Major League Baseball is using satellites to spy on the residents of Springfield. The truth is, they are spying on you. Well, maybe not Major League Baseball, but MTV, Coca-Cola, Apple and every company in between. They keep close tabs on what teens are doing, wearing, watching, listening to, eating and drinking.
