Polite Guest Myspace pages - Beneficial Or Not? (76* d) RE: Myspace pages - Beneficial Or Not? 12 Jun 08

Marion, I have a fair number of people on my page too, 'friends' that is, although not as many as Bob, but I may get there yet. :-)

Why do I have my page?   

Well, I'm not a musician, but my page is there to highlight and support those who are. It's there in defiance of a media who have shut so many doors in the faces of so many talented musicians, by the narrowing down of music played on radio and tv. It's my way of 'fighting back' and any help I can give to artists, by playing their music on my page or having them in my top 40, or within my other pages, I'll do.

I've musicians from all over the world, found some incredible, beautiful music, I've 'spoken' to people from all over the world too. During the Israel/Lebanon crisis I wrote to people from either side, just to wish them well, let them know they were being thought of on the other side of the world. They said it gave them comfort, made them feel 'less alone' It's a whole world, with no dictators in it, just people, finally without barriers.

Just the other week I went to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and sat beside a man who has now become a dear friend, purely because of Myspace. He came all the way over from New Jersey, not just to see me, but to visit other friends he's made in England too, also from Myspace. His lovely wife, sadly, is worried about flying, so wasn't able to come, but one day, we'll visit her. I found them because of a lovely man in China, whose page I just 'happened to find' one day - an American, who uses his page as a bridge for the world to meet upon.
