Hey guys - I have a MySpace account, and I must say, it has become an addiction. I was just wondering...am I the only goof over 20 who uses MySpace? Just in case I'm not, here's my MySpace URL:

Feel free to add me to your friends list. I blog there quite frequently.

Funny you mention that. We've had two incidents in the past eight days involving 15 year old girls who hooked up with guys they met on their My Space account.

Man, hope I don't stir up controversy with this. That's not what I'm after...just want to network with some of the people on here that I "know" is all...sorry...

No controversy at all. I don't blame anyone but the parents in those cases. I confess that I am unfamiliar with the website, but it appears to be like the old Yahoo type things that we all used when I was in college.

Oh, and untuck your tail young lady. There is no tail tucking on the AW forums!

Young. Heh heh. I wish...

Consider it "untucked".

I'm on myspace. See "me" below.

And I've over 20... um, over 30... um, over 40... well, I'm not on there to pick up 15 year olds. (I couldn't keep up!)

But any older girls...

kidding.

I'm not sure why I"m on there yet.

I'm on myspace. Though I have to admit I only created an account because the DJ of my favorite stations takes his requests from his myspace account. Sad reason for me to join I guess.

Well that is a better reason than I had when I was on the Yahoo Personals back in my single days.....

I'm there too, and it is a rather young crowd. I never thought I would use the term "jail bait" on a public forum, but it does apply. On second thought, I better not use it.

Sad reason for me to join I guess.Actually, that's probably the best of all reasons. After all, MySpace began as a site for musicians to keep in touch with their fans. At some point, it got spun into Friendster 2.0 or something and now its original purpose is a sadly minor facet of its existence. I mean, when Coke has a MySpace account it uses to plant surreptitious marketing messages online, what's left for it?

I'm just glad to know that normal people use it for normal reasons. From the way it has been talked about in the media down here the past couple of weeks, I was starting to think that the sole purpose of the site was to lure underage girls across state lines for immoral purposes.

I was starting to think that the sole purpose of the site was to lure underage girls across state lines for immoral purposes. And what else would you call trying to get people to come to a rock show? I can't think of any more immoral purpose than that.

I was kind of negative on the idea, mostly because I was under the impression that MySpace didn't have many members who were old enough to actually go to a 21+ venue. Sounds like I might be wrong about that. Can any of you recommend a good example of a band's MySpace page? (I ask because I have somehow become their webmaster.)

I'm 32 years old, and I have a myspace. All my favorite bands have them too. A couple major artists have released songs on their myspace page before anywhere else now, too.

It's good for bands because they can put their shows on myspace calendar, and fans can get notices and stuff.

http://www.myspace.com/fateswarning is an example of a typical Myspace music page.

My page is here (http://myspace.com/shiveredsky), if anyone wants to add me.

I'm on too. (http://www.myspace.com/livien)

I don't spend a great deal of time there because it's slow and set out quite clumsily... (-- now I think of Rob every time I use one of those.)

Anyway, WVWriterGirl, I just sent you a friend request :)

And I'd love to add more people from here!

I have two bands in my friends list:

http://www.myspace.com/bomshel - my cousin's country music band (she's the one on the right in all the pictures)

http://www.myspace.com/byzantine - a friend of mine from high school is the lead singer of this one.

I also have a group of friends on my friends list from an over-25 gamers website. In fact, I don't think there is anyone on there under 25, aside from my niece (who's on my friends list because she's a family member).

I use MySpace to blog my personal opinions and such...I just feel like I can express myself more there for some reason - my other blog is reserved for "professional stuff" and I find that I neglect it for that reason. If you want a peek into my pitiful little life, you can read all about it on my MySpace blog.

I'm there - http://www.myspace.com/word_goddess - (My display name is Pop Rocks.)

I joined a few months ago as a way to keep in touch with some friends of mine I made on another message board.

I find it annoying that you have to log in everytime, even if you say "remember me" it only remembers your email addy, you still have to log in.

Whereas here I can stay logged in permanently.

Dang it all, I'm there now, too. I was reviewing a band and the only information I could find was on MySpace. Though I'm sure it will be worth it eventually.

I don't have that problem. All I have to do it wait for it and log in. It keeps my logins.

Me, too ( http://www.myspace.com/mkcbunny). My cousin [who's much younger than I am and in away for her first year at college] invited me to join so I could keep up with her. So I did.

But I probably won't go there much. I'm actually trying to reduce my online time. Like that's gonna work ...
