No More STABBING… Just a Little Poke

At this point in the game of  ‘career development’, things started to work better. The ‘Desperation Rates’ were no longer in affect, and the jobs started getting more fun because I had started working for my peers. (Who says that ‘Friends and Money go together like Oil and Water?’ – We were ALL Broke, but we ALL made it through and were still able to make it to all of the shows that year. (Before Baby days.)

I give credit to MySpace for connecting atleast 2   generations in an entirely CREATIVE approach that not only enabled every artist of every medium, but it also connected the entire global community in the way that Facebook and Twitter have proceeded to further develop.  We were all present at the same time, sharing each other’s energy with the ‘NEWNESS’ of it all, while adding our own voices to the chorus and reaping benefits that we’d never seen before! We had a place to go to where Synergy was taking place 24/7 with musical bands and all sorts of visual artists sharing their own visions as posts that linked us all to other worlds of similar sorts of Happenings at the same time.

MySpace opened the door for a lot of us ARTFOLK, – then it split into a lot of fragments that all of us had to choose to surf with. Our world’s became infinitely more complex, and thanks to MySpace, we were somehow prepared for it. -For instance, I had the means to reach 1000’s of people from the comfort of my own computer during weeks when I could not find work in the towns in the surrounding area. ~Almost on a whimsical side-note, I was able to toss this little gem out there into the hive, knowing that the late nighters ALONE would hire me to do enough posters, backdrops, and murals to help us cover the bills, that I almost felt like I was was ‘Showing Off’. <— I mean, Who puts 9 pictures on a single page?

Who DOES that?

MySpace did, and I am still thankful to this day. ~Ain’t technology GRAND!

MySpace Advertising was the Greatest!
