Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Oh, and by the way...

The next person to ask me 'Say, do you have a MySpace account?' will receive an anthrax love letter from me.

Once and for all: Never ever will I join a News Corp. / Fox Interactive Media owned "socialising" site with corrupt policies and I honestly don't understand how so many of you (yes, you!) obviously don't seem to bother about this.

Also, I clearly don't give a rotten rat's ass about how great it is for "networking". I don't need networks to feel like a more important person.

So if you don't mind, I'd quite like to stay here in my own little corner of the world wide web.

Wurzeltod is my space, and I don't need any place else.

Thanks everyone for shutting up about it now.

S.

    Oje.. aber Sie habe ich doch auch gar nicht gemeint, liebe Miss Bennet. Sie wurden ja quasi ins MySpaciversum reinoktroyiert. Das ist natürlich etwas ganz anderes.

    Es ist mir äusserst unangenehm, das zu gestehen, aber die Schuhe sind von MiuMiu - vor etwa 5 Jahren mit 70% (sic!) Rabatt bei Brunello in Luzern gekauft (wo ich mich sonst niiiiiiiiiiiiie im Leben reintrauen würde).

    Wenn ich mich recht entsinne, haben mich die Schühchen regelrecht durchs Schaufenster durch angefleht, sie doch bitte, bitte mit nach Hause zu nehmen. Ich habe damals also aus völlig altruistischen Gründen gehandelt und das Leben zweier unschuldiger Schuhe gerettet, die sonst in Victoria Beckhams Schuhgestell verendet wären.

    Ja ja.. so ist das, meine liebe Miss Bennet. Das mit dem Marmorcake hätten Sie aber besser ungesagt gelassen, da jetzt mein Magen rumort.

    Hoffentlich bis bald, meine Teuerste!

    Don't sweat it. According to the usage stats, MySpace is withering on the vine. The amount of hours that the users are spending on it have dwindled from more than 7 per day to just less than three ... mainly because Dear Rupert is so desperately trying to monetize his White Elephant that he's cramming ads into every available pixel.

    So. Here be thy goode newse: In a year's time you won't have to worry about being bugged about a MySpace page.

    Bad news: By that time, some other netfrenzy will have taken over that you'll be inundated with.

    That is, unless the alien energy rays all come down and fry our silicon infrastructure...

    Thank you all for your comments! Special thanks to wordyeti - that was rather insightful and shocking at the same time.

    I mean... if it's true that one human being can spend 7 hours on MySpace without getting serious brain damage?!? Fascinating!

    Anyway... OTPOR!

    I have always been proud to be MySpace free. It's a terrible format, anyway. That greedy bastard buying it just made me happier that I had never partaken.
