o.k. let’s leave it at that.
BUT looking back, that could have been – the beginning of the end, or was it just the beginning of the beginning for Josh’s manic alter ego: the NOTORIOUS – MJ LUVVY !! and all those . . . we-are-BIO (!!) – sex investigations that went on at PSEUDO, under guise of leadership, academic endeavor, future shock, or was that just . . . plain ole All American red blooded / human entertainment 101.
and, the biggest biz on the web, it turns out. ha.
check: if it was happening – PSEUDO was on it. leaving no stone unturned.
well, come on. PSEUDO was born of JUPITER – the very first web trend ‘tracking’ site.
