The Myspace Blog RIP
I spent about 2 years pre-Facebook posting and communicating with people on a website called Myspace. These days, that website is for bands and people who still have flip phones.
Those years were before I started doing anything creative on stage. I was living in northwest Indiana, hoping some poem I wrote and sent to Eugene Mirman and Brendan Smalls would elicite a response. Sadly, it did not.
But then I got off my buttcheeks, moved to Chicago and started working towards standing on stage with pre-written material and saying it into a mic. I would just say being a comedian, but I’m five dollars short from the amount of money you must make, 35 bucks, to be considered a comedian. I’ve got drink tickets for sale if anyone wants to help me raise that extra 5. Or you can go to my kickstarter and indiegogo pages.
I’ve taken awhile to get there, but I used my Myspace blog to update friends, mark milestones and workout ideas that were the building blocks of who I am today.
I went back to read those blogs earlier this week and found out they were gone. Myspace has gotten rid of that part of the website. Apparently there is a way to get them back, but I forgot my password and now they are just gone.
I guess I’m using this forum to say goodbye to that recorded part of my life. It is like a distant relative has died. I didn’t see them much, but it was just comforting to know they are there.
I’d also like to say a big fuck you to Myspace for paving paradise to put in a mediocre website.
