This Is The Day...This Is The Day... *

...to delete your myspace page I guess. Happened across this blog entry and had a nice little chuckle. Sounds like this guy arbitrarily decided to make January 30th "National Delete Your Myspace Page Day". It's funny, I almost did this on my own last Sunday.

On his original post about it, he gave some reasons you might want to delete your account. Here are a few I thought were funny:

4. You visit someone’s Myspace profile only to suddenly have music start blasting out of your speakers. Bonus points if it happens to you while you’re at work.

This usually isn't a huge issue for me. I keep my speakers off most of the time. But if you're surfing myspace at work?...kinda serves you right don't you think?

6. You visit someone’s profile only to have your eyes bleed because of terrible page layout with non-matching designs and font colors.

Haven't I talked about this before? Oh yeah. Here it is. This is a serious serious problem people. Don't you ever visit your page and see what it looks like to the rest of us??

9. You’re frustrated with the fact that Myspace doesn’t allow you to post your contact info, meaning to contact someone you can only use Myspace’s glitchy Instant Messenger, message/email system, or wall commenting.


Ok. It's going to start sounding like I'm sticking up for myspace here or something (and that's not what I'm doing at ALL) but doesn't everyone know the reason you don't put actual contact info on a very public web page? I mean aside from the fact that you'll get a CRAPload of spam...it's dangerous folks. And if you REALLY want to post your email address?...um, you all know that workaround right?

10. You’re tired of seeing Tom stare out at you from millions of friends lists and just wish he would change his f***ing profile picture. **

Tom has always cracked me up. Maybe I was a little hasty when I immediately deleted him from my friends list...but hey. I didn't know the guy. He wasn't my friend. Why has everyone kept him around? Are they really that desperate for the largest number of 'friends' they can possibly come up with? Yeesh.

Now don't get me wrong. Myspace has its uses. I have several music friends that swear by it for networking. And thats great. But boy am I tired of having to pick my "top" friends. Or all those stupid bulletins.

I may not have jumped on the bandwagon THIS January 30th...but there's always next year.

One of these days Myspace...

...one of these days.

*who can finish the good ol' Sunday School tune the title came from?

**curse word omitted to protect the innocent. After all, this is a family friendly site folks.

"...that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"???

Was that it?? What do I win??

I didn't keep Tom, but I added you as a friend. Does that make me desperate? Probably. But, hey, what's wrong with a little desperation now and again? I say it's good for the soul.

Yeah. I read this somewhere too, but I don't think on the same site. I think it was through stlbloggers. But I commented to the person that it had been quite effective for me as a musician. But yeah... It's not like I'm all about it and love it.
