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....
