I was very reluctant to join MySpace for a good while, but was finally convinced by my pretty girl/wifey MJ to get an account, and so I signed up in February. I have my reservations though. Seems like many on on there are looking for their cheap fifteen minutes of fame, to be noticed, to be popular, or at least appear to be. Some really do use it as a popularity contest, almost like high school or something! BLAH!
Mind you, I like MySpace so far for a variety of reasons. It's free, ya get to stay in touch with friends whom you rarely see anymore, and in my case, it actually helped me come out of the closet when some of my family members ran into my page. When used to keep in touch with people you really know and have met in the past, or are still dealing with in your present, the service works well and is quite enjoyable.
I run into so many pages of people who have a set of friends in the hundreds, if not thousands! How in tha hell does one individual know so many people, let alone keep in touch realistically with all of them?! Unless you're a big star with a huge fanbase, I doubt your regular average Joe Smith with a MySpace set of 5,768 friends can truly keep in touch with all those people. Does Joe Smith really even freakin' know so many human beings? I find it lame to just add people for addition's sake, as if you're trying to build up your friends list for the sole purpose of appearing loved or popular.
I won't be an ass and deny anyone who's trying to meet me or add me on as a friend. I've actually met some cool people on there. But one has to be realistic and clean up that friends list from time to time and delete many on there who are just there taking up space. Taking up space on MySpace! HAHA! I got some forty friends or so on my list, and for the most part I'd say the vast majority of them really mean something to me. If anyone is on there just because it makes me appear loved and crap, then out they go! I get a lot of webcam slutty girls and gay dudes that wanna join my list a lot. DELETE THEM I SAY!
Everyone now is a musician, actor, poet, writer...you name it! Everybody's talented and special. Or at least wants to be. Hell, I too am probably guilty of it by now. I got this blog and a MySpace page. I TOO WANT TO BE NOTICED DAMNIT! ACKNOWLEDGED! A LITTLE BIT FAMOUS! AND CERTAINLY POPULAR! LOLOL!
For (let's be honest now) why else do we do it right?
