The Dalai Lama...

Myspace gets quite a lot of stick in snootier circles (The Grauniad, Personal Computer Weekly, Housewives' Choice etc..) but I think a lot of this animosity and contempt is ill-deserved, actually. You know, it's not just a paedophile-friendly jizz joint where you can while away weeks on end gawping at scantily-clad goth girls splattered in feck blood, listening to the atrocious SlipKnot cover versions they've posted up that sound like someone vomiting over a Black Sabbath track played backwards (although that is quite a large part of the appeal, obviously. As Stray Photon will concur...) But really, there's a lot of good (i.e. non-pornographic) stuff on there too.

For instance, the other day I came across this nice looking bald chap in his 70s, dressed in orange. He looked kind of cute and had a smile that was sort of, how can I put it? - Serene? Anyways, I thought what the heck? And sent him this message:

I came across your myspace by accident, your Royal Highness - I'd typed in Dial-a-Llama, and you came up.

It's nice to have met you anyway - I really admire what you do.

(I guess I'll just have to do without the Llama....)

Much love, peace and respect to you, sir,

And I got this reply:

that made me smile. many blessings to you, namaste.

His myspace is here if you want to check him out.

Don't know about you, but I think I'm in there....

  1. He may be a nice old man but is he cool? If old Dalai wants to get anywhere with those Goth girls he needs a few tattoos and piercings.

  3. He loves Branston Pickle I've heard; whenever he comes over he goes back with cases full of the stuff, just like Mike Gatting used to do with baked beans in India. As long as you don't go all Richard Gere (that's turn into a twat, not go grey)

  5. Fractal Suicide is a particular pet fancy I believe Rock Mother.
