Crossing over to the Dark Space

I have a passing awareness of MySpace, and I thought today I would go check it out thouroughly to see if I could use it to help promote my business. Apparently, there are a lot of MySpace Bands, maybe I could start (or join in) people using MySpace to promote restaurants. This is what I found that I lack for the pages of MySpace:
1)Youth
2)A pithy nickname, like Gator or Photo Guy.
3)A shirtless photo.
4)A talent for creating atrociously cluttered and hard to navigate web pages.
5)A shirtless photo
6)A shirtless photo.

Wait a minute . . .

These people are looking to "Network"! I get it.

Where's my camera?

There's plenty of us old folks on MySpace, you just have to look harder. I mainly use it to keep in touch with old friends and for the music stuff. Bunches of bar/grills, record stores and some other establishments in Tennessee there tho - I have The Boro Bar & Grill (old haunt of mine back in college days) on my Friends List among some Knoxville establishments as well. I think Mothership BBQ would fit right and funkily in, it's hip & cool. If you're on there or haven't opened an account, find mine - my email is lynnmc@bellsouth.net - and hit me up for an add and then pore thru my Friends list, bunches of bands and plenty of non-teens and non-twentysomethings there. You really can be there and avoid the adolescent factor. I'll agree it's clunky and stuff tho, but it's still kinda fun and I guarantee you people in the metro Nashville area will be checking out your page. Anytime I wind up on a Nashville or 'Boro area band list or personal profile list, I find several more add requests in my box. It's (more) free advertising, go for it I say...

I refuse to join MySpace just to see these shirtless photos of which you speak.

Plus I've seen you without your shirt...

I have a My Space to keep an eye on the chilluns. The neat thing about it is, I've had several people find me on there that I haven't seen since Reagan was president.

Damn, but that Andy guy likes his women on the hearty side. I think you need to get some of those ladies into your restaurant.

Tons of bloggers are on there too, so you'd have a built in friends list. Be happy to help if you want it. I started a second page for a site I used to write for, and it's been great for networking, when we'd advertise contests or contributor needs. It would go well with your online advertising.

I think that would be a great market opportunity for you!
