My Space phonies
Ira Bostian on 08/22/2006
Who\'s the dumbass? The guy who pretends to be someone he\'s not or the dumb shit who believes him. We are all questioning the certain pages we view. Wondering the thought, \"Could this really be him/her\" or \"Is this really the bands\' official My Space page\".
This is a follow-up bulletin to one I\'ve been posting two days now.
So many of us (wait back up....not us...YOU!!!.......I refuse to be included in what I see happening before my eyes).
Restart: So many of you are mad and upset that you\'ve discovered someone has been pretending to be Paul Stanley and leaking the new CD over My Space. Well duh? NO Shit! I knew the first day that wasn\'t the real Paul Stanley and I pointed it out to some of you. In his about me section you find this
\"This album is purely a labor of love, says Stanley\". BINGO people this quote indicates to me that it is not Paul Stanley\'s official page. If it were Paul\'s page, it would not have said \"says Stanley\". The designer of the page copied and pasted a quote he got from who knows where. A debut interview with Paul about the new album printed I\'m sure in some paper or magazine.
Do I need to hold a class on how to read fkn\' profiles?
I read them very closely before accepting any one as a friend and before I send an add request.
Okay back to the issue at hand. So many of you are mad at this guy. Well this is a KISS FAN. A member of the KISS Army in my eyes. Yes perhaps a bit stupid in his actions. But to me, not stupid enough to be hated. He has made a mistake. Yet to me is still a brother in the KISS Army.
If any of you can honestly admit to never having made a mistake in your lives. Then feel free to cast the first stone. However, I bet we (and this time I include myself) WE HAVE ALL DONE STUPID SHIT!!!
The following is my orginal post from the last two days:
Come on people.......WAKE THE HELL UP! We live in a computer generated world where anyone can go on line and draw up a profile pretending to be someone they are not.
Don\'t be so quick to send a comment to someone without first reading their page. So many people have commented \"my new friend\" believing it is actually a member of the band \"KISS\" who created the profile.
My biggest pet peeve about computer profiles is people pretending to be who they aren\'t. Haven\'t you seen Dee Snider\'s \"Strangeland\". JESUS!!!
This is my comment sent to one of my newest friends on \"My Space\". Check out this page:
Let me applaude your abilty to get over 73, 000 page views and 4, 000 friends in less than 2 months. Your page shows you as a member since 7/10/06. BRAVO!!!
It\'s great to have a new \"Fan of KISS\" on my friends list. How do I know you are a fan? Not the real KISS? Because I have a certain thing about me when I accept a friend to my page. I read theirs!!! Then decide whether they should join me.
Let me detail how I came to my idea that you are a fan and not really a member of the band.
In your \"General Info\" section your web link goes no where. I know www.kissonline.com is the official web site for KISS. You have a picture of a \"Creatures of the Night\" promo from a 1982 KISS line - up. With band members Eric Carr, Gene Simmons, Vinnie Vincent, and Paul Stanley.
Yet under the picture you list band members names as Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley. WHAT NO PAUL STANLEY??? And how the hell did Ace and Tommy get in the band together at the same time wearing the same makeup? Okay \"Glam\" (maybe) \"Hard Rock\" and \"Rock\" definately. But \"Metal\"? I can\'t recall KISS ever being listed anywhere as a Metal Band.
Record label: Sanctuary has only released 2 Albums (what\'s an album...That\'s what I call releases ....Not CD\'s.......I\'m 40 years old ....it\'s an album to me).Those were: \"Gene Simmons -Asshole\" (2004) and \"KISS Symphony Alive IV\" (2003) KISS started out under the Casablanca Record Label. Then went to Polygram and Mercury throughout their entire career. So listing their Label only as Sanctuary indicates to me that you own just 1 or maybe both of those releases I mentioned.
You\'d think with over 4, 000 friends one of them would have pointed out your page mistakes. But I guess I may very well be the only one who was interested in reading your page entirely before asking for an \"add request\".
Welcome to my friends list. It\'s always nice to have another KISS FAN on it!!!
Stay cool and keep rockin\', Ira
