having a nostalgic moment here. i killed my myspace account on friday. it was the compassionate thing to do. logged in and found it crouched in a corner in puddle of its own urine, mewling, inferring that death would be the merciful thing to do. those weren’t its words, but i could tell from the expression on its face that it was ‘begging me to kill it’. am sure y’ulle have all experienced a similar moment with a family pet / job / boyfriend / etc.
sometimes, killing is the answer, my friends. in fact, sometimes it’s a smart answer. apparently there are double the amount of people in the world than the earth can safely sustain, so my art director Mark came up with a great idea in a moment of creative gusto. he said,
‘If everyone in the world kills one person at some point in their lives, earth will survive. Global warming etc etc will be solved.’ – Mark Stead, 3 x Loerie Grand Prix winner (easy to see why)
you’d be surprised at how many great ideas like that we come up with when working on pro-bono clients (ie. good causes, for the ignorant).
anyway, back to myspace. are any of y’ulle still on myspace? when i logged in to kill my account, i noticed they’d tried to make it look like facebook. as if one facebook isn’t enough already. guess being a ‘trailblazer / pathfinder / pioneer‘ is always hard coz you make all the mistakes and then everyone else just stands on your shoulders.
