MySpace, Where Comedians Go to Die?


Last night I wandered deep into the vast cesspool of humanity and bad design that is MySpace. While I was somewhat prepared for the teenage poseurs, lonely, middle-aged men and thinly-veiled pornography, I certainly wasn’t expecting to find Jon Lovitz or Pauly Shore!

In his profile Mr. Lovitz writes:

I figured I’d use this web site to talk to my fans directly. Let you know what’s going on with me. And thank you for your support all these years. THANK YOU!!!

… And follows up on the blog section of his site with some very thorough answers to questions about the industry from fans. Mr. Shore’s page on the other hand is, well… Just sad, but really more in keeping with the whole MySpace experience anyway, if you ask me.

Mobile phones, Linux and copyright reform. Those go together, right?

    Did you notice how many friends these people have. I signed up for a friendster account once and I still check it now and then. I signed up, all my friends signed up too. We all called each other and said we added each other to the list. Then we never spoke of it again. I get the same vibe from my space. Sign up, colect your friends, then let it sit. Maybe it’s just because I already have a web page that I find these sites to be a little dull, I don’t know. Just thought I’d share.
