(Special Thanks to Kristin F. for this idea. If you’re reading this, I owe you a favor.)
Myspace, while currently overshadowed by Facebook, is a oh-so-infamous yet popular social networking site. And as such, because it’s the Internet, it’s a free-for-all for ideas, transfer of information, and transfer of….er…”information”. Now, Myspace is just that – a space where you can express yourself and connect with friends, new and old.
Sadly, this expression comes in the form of pre-made templates with annoying watermarks, and assorted flashing images. Also, comments are used more as a chat system than as an opinion area. Yet, finally, the great form of expression comes in where the creator of the account can upload pictures, to give the world a taste of what they look like, or their interests, or something.
So, due to this, there’s been a special standard for photography as inspired by the site. I’ll try to rationalize the Myspace Angle for you:
“Wouldn’t it be cool if I were to take a picture of myself just above my head so I’m looking down on my face? Oh, and my low-cut shirt will emphasize my personality, too. Oh, huh, I seem to have cut off my head in the picture. I don’t know how to delete pictures, so I’ll just upload it and let it be the thing everybody sees, so they can help me.”
And thus, the picture is framed to showcase optimum cleavage! Even the nicest girl receives popularity for this photo trampiness.
But, there’s a problem, now, isn’t there? Men can’t take advantage of the Myspace Angle in the chest region! So here are some solutions to that problem, in no particular order:
- The Natural – Perhaps you have your own male boob definition and separation, due to weight or peculiar fetishes. So, all you need now is a low-cut shirt and a camera! Easy!
- Melons – More specifically, cantaloupes. This provides a rough, wrinkly look that may interest older users. Ensure that melons are of even diameter – the eye is attracted to symmetry.
- Balloons – Smooth yet fragile, balloons can provide a realistic if not almost opaque look to your improvised chest surface. Careful, coarse chest hair may cause popping!
There. Now we can all show off what people want to see – our shameless attempts to showcase our bodies. You know, to get people to like you. And where’s the harm in that?
Let The Myspace Angle Die
