They're like a combination of your creepy drunk uncle who just discovered the internet ("hey, you guys still on MySpace? You hear about the You Tubes yet?") who sends you 10000 game requests on Facebook, and a high school junior who just took a rudimentary web design class ("my website is pretty cool...but it could use some images of dancing hamsters and flying toasters! LOL they have wings. Bright orange background, neon green blinking text, and...voila!"). It's insane.

I go to the Roo website to buy my ticket and to verify the lineup & schedule people post on inforoo is real on release day.
I couldn't care less what the website looks like, but it is funny how terribly under-budgeted their online marketing/presence seems to be.
I don't think it's a $$$ issue; the same company they hire does Paul McCartney's web design, which is usually classy enough. I just think those meetings between AC and the web design people probably have some goofy-ass suggestions from AC's side (half-kidding).
