Whose Space? My Space!

Melanie Lynne Hauser, writer buddy, just dropped me a note to let me know her publisher suggested she open a www.MySpace.com account.

Not wanting to be left out of a hot new trend that all the kids are doing and has been featured on TV, I signed up for an account of my own.

I quickly learned three very important things:
  1. There are a lot of people in the world with too much free time.
  2. Cyberstalking has become a whole lot easier.
  3. I have no friends.

Well, actually, I have two friends. One is Mel, and the other it Tom, the guy who invented MySpace.com. who automatically becomes your friend when you sign up.

Tom seemed nice, but I deleted him to make room for the hordes of JA Fans waiting to sign up to see my pictures and videos and read my MySpace Blog. It doesn't matter that the pictures and videos are already available on my website, or that my MySpace Blog is simply a link to this one. What matters is that there are 77 million people on MySpace, and I want a piece of that.

So I turn to you, my loyal blog readers. Do you want to be my MySpace Friend?

If you already have a MySpace account, visit my page at http://www.myspace.com/jakonrath and become my friend. Possibly even my Best Friend Forever. Then I'll do the same. Won't that be cool?

If you don't have a MySpace account, what the hell are you waiting for? It's free, takes about ten minutes to set up, and puts you in touch with like-minded people in a close, intimate way that doesn't involve actually ever meeting them in person.

This is the future, whether you like it or not. Get with the program, deadbeat, and make some damn friends.

While you're there, also become Mel's friend. She's lonely.
