MySpace is crap, and my ears are ringing.

Tonight I decided to get a profile on MySpace mostly to reserve my preferred handle before someone else took it and/or impersonated me. The latter happened to Josh Kornbluth, generating a fair amount of MySpace Sucks comments in his blog; that plus all the negative publicity and my unwillingness to join yet another social networking site that I would soon ignore put me off of it. But my voice teacher Vicki and friend Mike were on it, and it seems to be mandatory for actual musicians who want to advertise their wares (not that I have any, yet), so I figured I'd take the plunge.

Well, I was lucky to reserve my name and edit a profile at all, because every other click produced an error message. Especially any time I tried to add someone as a friend - "We're sorry... unexpected error... webmaster has been notified..." etc. etc. Plus the look and navigation of the site offends my eyes. What crap. Well, if any of you are on it and want to "friend" me, maybe you'll have better luck from your end.

In totally unrelated news, a loud explosion about an hour ago set off all the car alarms on the street, physically hurt my ears and had boyziggy and many of our neighbors on the phone to 911. A couple of fire trucks showed up quite quickly, making me feel fortunate to live on (S)Nob Hill rather than, say, Bayview. I watched from the balcony as many people huddled outside trying to figure out what was going on. The final verdict seemed to be that it was fireworks of some kind. No apparent injuries or damage, and everyone went back to their business. My ear still hurts...
