It’s official. According to Bloggasm, (an excellent media blogger named Simon Ownes, btw whom I have been following for a while), today is the perfect day to delete that old unused Myspace account.
My main problems with myspace:
- Why should the default be to blast music on people’s home pages?
- Why do you have to be a member to download a free song?
- Why do the overwhelming majority of unsigned musicians prevent free downloading of their songs?
By the way, I am all in favor of major media companies (especially right-wing ones) overpaying for web properties. Everyone wins (well, except the shareholders).

Far more interesting to me than myspace is mydeathspace, a myspace for people who died.
