MVRemix: Nah, never heard of 'em. I checked out your my space page, what's up with all the model like chicks? I don't really see any real fan love on there. It seems like everybody there is there for exposure, crazy superficial. So what's up with that?

MVRemix: You don't maintain that yourself?

DJ Clue: No
