I have decided to cancel my myspace music account today. I am actually thinking about leaving that stupid site for good. Myspace is in fact a crappy site, I actually despise it, I’ve been hating on myspace for the longest time. So many weird and crazy people in that site, people who are delusional and you can’t trust anyone there. I can explain so many reasons I hate that site. See the post I did before “10 Reasons to Hate Myspace” several entries back.
As far as uploading my music goes, there are other sites where I can do that. I’ll just go to my soundclick music page. I don’t like myspace at all. The site is pure crap.
What’s funny is that most bands and musicians think “myspace” is a great promoting tool for your music, hate to burst your bubble, but it is not. “Myspace” does not get people out to shows. I will explain more on that another time.
Myspace is a disgrace to this society. I feel much better without it and it’ll help me become less addicted to the site. There is more to life than myspace and I have found better things to do than that site. I’m thinking about cancelling my personal account too.
Thanks for your understanding.
You think “myspace” is a good place to hangout online to make new and old friends or keep in touch with people you already to know?
Here are reasons to hate the site:
About bands/music artists: If you think you are going to go into the site to make friends with your favorite bands and music artists, think again. A lot of music artists in that site could give a rats ass about you. They are only in there for networking and promoting their music, period. I’ve said it before that just because a band has more than 10,000 friends doesn’t make them a star or well known.
Myspace is mostly a promoting site: All them famous celebrities that have official accounts, famous bands, supermodels, actors/actresses, companies, film makers, comedians, political figures, etc. They are only there to plug in their careers, they aren’t there to chat with you. Figure it out.
Finding a date in myspace: If you’re looking for a girlfriend or boyfriend or just looking for a fuck buddy in a one night stand in myspace, that stuff could work but it can be very risky. How do you know if the woman you’re talking to is really a woman? It could be really a man just to harrass you for fun, an anonymous person just to poke at you (Megan Meier story below as an example). Nothing wrong with finding a relationship or sex with random people in myspace as long you be careful, keeping it legal and all that. Plus, if you’re looking to hook up sex with random people in myspace, how do you know if they are clean with drugs or sexual diseases?
Threatening to delete/block users if you don’t talk to them: I completely understand that people are in myspace for true friends to keep in touch in a daily basis, but I think it’s absolutely pathetic that people threaten to block/delete other users if they don’t talk to them. If I add people in my personal account, I keep them on my friendslists and leave them right there even if they don’t talk to me at all. Sorry to say this, but when you see people not talking to you at all even if you know them well, that means they have a life and have better things to do than hang in myspace all the time. If you’re the type of person that threatens to delete/block people ’cause they don’t talk to you… have you come to realize that you have no life and hang in myspace too much? I don’t talk to people much in myspace ’cause I have better things to do than hang in that site everyday and all day. Think about it now…
Private personal profiles are for cowards: I don’t turn my personal myspace profile (not my music page) to private ’cause I want people to know who I am before they send me an add request. If you turn your myspace profile to private, you are obviously hiding something from people out there. I have nothing to hide. It’s why I make things public so people can see.
Women complaining about men sending them “sexual” comments: I’ve seen this quite a lot in myspace and it can get quite entertaining. The women in myspace who whine about men sending them “sexual” comments like, “I wanna fuck you” or “You have a great body, I wanna lick your tits”, etc., calling them out and threatening to ban/delete them from the page or worse call law enforcement. Time out. If ladies don’t want sexual comments in myspace, then they shouldn’t be posting up half naked pics of them or in their bios section in the “hobbies/interests” write up, the women write “I like sex”, if you women put that stuff up there, this is exactly what you’re gonna get. So don’t blame the men, you have to look at how you create your myspace page that attracts men to your page. Use common sense.
Anonymous cyber bullying harrassment: This type of thing goes on quite a lot too. Ways to tell if someone bullying you is anonymous is if their typing style is weird and they refuse to reveal who they really are. This is the point of people going anonymous ’cause they don’t want you know who they are. They do this so they can avoid getting in trouble by myspace staff or so they won’t get investigated by law enforcement. Look at that Megan Meier story below in the previous entry, law enforcement found out the anonymous cyberbully that harrassed Megan in matter of seconds. They can run but they can not hide, law enforcement are computer geniuses and they will track the harrasser down no matter how anonymous you get. You have the right to report to law enforcement as long as you have the evidence. People has gotten arrested for cyberbullying and harrasment over myspace. The thing with myspace is that you can’t blame the site with myspace harrassment, it’s just the way people are in real life. Just a bunch of unhappy depressed people who have nothing going on in their lives. Best thing to do is ignore all cyberbullying and negative messages in myspace completely, and it will go away.
Myspace errors and bad servers: One thing that pisses me off so much in myspace that things hardily ever work in myspace, one thing the picture gallerys is not working, the commenting stops working, myspace e-mails, etc. It even pisses me off when maintenance closes down my page for “your account is closed for maintenance will be back shortly”. Myspace is such crap that they fail to keep the site in working order 24/7.
So there you go, there are some reasons that myspace is not so “glorifying” as people think it is. If News Corp. ever happens to close down myspace for whatever reason in the future, I won’t feel heartbroken about it at all, I would say good riddance if that ever happens. There’s certainly more to life than “myspace”.
Remember last year the report of the 13 year old girl, Megan Meier, who committed suicide over myspace harrassment? The story has been getting strong national attention as of late. Another teenage girl Ashley Grills is responsible for all this because she was posing as a boy named Josh Evans, she just found some random picture online of a good looking boy and started flirting with Megan as a boy, then the online chat became aggressive harrassment saying to Megan that “the world would be a better place without you” and harsh things like that. Since Megan’s suicide, Ashley Grills became suicidal and felt really guilty ever since.
The Associated Press:
Use myspace wisely and carefully kids. It maybe a fun and addictive site, but honestly, I don’t like it. I don’t like myspace at all, as a matter of fact, I hate it so much.
I always thought about deleting both my music and personal myspace profiles but I can’t because I have to use the site to “network” local music, it’s the only place where I can get gigs, plus I use my personal profile to keep in touch with friends/family that I know well.
As you noticed I’ve been taking lesser time from myspace, I’ve been finding better things to do than hang on the computer. It seems like people don’t really use myspace as a place for friends that everyone claims. They seem to use it as their own little drama soap box. You can’t trust anybody in that stupid site.
I’ll have a myspace “rant” later on today.
I worked a full 10 hour shift at my part time job today and for some reason, I don’t feel all that tired. I must feel energetic and upbeat today, that could be it.
Last night, I finally watched the movie “No Country For Old Men”, and the movie was fuckin’ amazing! Oh my god, that movie was one of the bests I’ve seen in a long time! Josh Brolin played such an awesome character, and of course, I loved Javier Bardem’s character as well. I would have to say that “No Country For Old Men” easily headed up to one of my top 10 favorite films of all times. I plan on buying the Blu-Ray for that movie sometime most definitely! Check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
On the way home from work, I stopped at the video rental store and rented 3 films… I rented “Michael Clayton”, “Death Sentence”, and “We Own the Night”. I’ll be watching those 3 movies tonight to relax after a long day of work. I’ll let you know my thoughts on those films.
Not much to blog about today, maybe more tomorrow.
