Join! A progressive MySpace

PEEK has joined Bloc Party (get it? political bloc...), a progressive-minded MySpace. And it's not just because Bloc Party likes AlterNet so much that they use our videos with OCD-like consistency. Nor is it because Rupert Murdoch owns MySpace and it's such a phenomenon that we saw a t-shirt in a resort town in Oregon that read: "You looked hotter on MySpace."

The idea is basically that Bloc Party can be used like any other social networking site, but that it also offers the opportunity for like-minded people to gather according to zip code to make a change in their local political landscape.

Best of all: it's free. Be my friend and sign up HERE. (BlocParty)
