The 500-plus-word press release, which emphasizes the "The" much like the marketing campaign employed by The Ohio State University years ago, also dishes about a new website as well as a general makeover.

With its corporate-targeted upgrades, it's hard to imagine someone like Skee-Lo (the "I Wish" one-hit wonder) or a hanging-from-the-ceilings-with-meat-hooks fetish fan feeling comfortable in the remodeled spot.
