But I've got to admit that SuperFan, the brainchild of Tickle.com founder Rick Marini, is pretty cool. Basically, it's a one-stop spot that serves as a platform for music, photos, quizzes, and videos, as well as social networking (kinda like a combination of Flickr, MySpace and Facebook). Accumulate enough points by becoming a "fan" of your favorite sports teams, movie stars, and music groups, and you can become a "SuperFan."
Memphis-related pages for Memphis Slim, Lucero, Chris Bell, Jay Reatard, the Box Tops, the Grifters, Gangsta Pat, Egypt Central, Ingram Hill, Judge Joe Brown, and, yes, the U of M Tigers are already up and running, although you have to create a profile (or use your Facebook log in) to check 'em out.
