(01/04/09 note: Joe's MySpace page has been taken down. Alas. But thanks to the Google Cache system, you can now access it here!)
It is not often that you get to see a local city politico reveal himself in quite this way. But then again Joe has never been your typical politician! And while he does identify himself here as Joseph Mosca - 36 years old - Male - Sierra Madre (the 36 being only a year or so light), we'll always know him simply as our Councilman Joe. So let's see what we can find out, shall we?
Joseph Mosca's Details:
Hometown: Providence, Rhode Island
Body Type: Average
Ethnicity: White / Caucasian
Zodiac Sign: Libra
Education: Grad / professional school
Occupation: Attorney / Councilman
I guess we should start with Joe's Libra thing. After all, Zodiac signs are always a great conversation starter. On the positive side, "Librans are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism ... They are very social human beings. They detest conflict between people, so they do their best to compromise with everyone around them ..." However, Librans, like all of us children of the Zodiac, have a dark side as well. "The negative Libran character may show frivolity, flirtatiousness and shallowness. It can be changeable and indecisive, impatient of routine, colorlessly conventional and timid, easy going to the point of inertia, seldom angry when circumstances demand a show of annoyance at least, and yet Librans can shock everyone around them with sudden storms of rage." Oh my!
As I'm sure everyone knows, on a MySpace page you get to identify your favorite rock star, and even link to one of that artist's songs! Joe has picked the British pop sensation Howard Jones for his page, with the selected tune being "New Song." It is an effervescent and light track, and quite danceable as well. Howard first became famous as part of the MTV boom of the 1980s, right along with such pop icons as Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Devo, and Sting. Using the new and exciting music video format, Howard enchanted a generation with his positive and upbeat sound. He has just released his 25th Anniversary Triple Live (!) Concert Tribute CD. And wouldn't you know it, he has a MySpace page as well! If you want to know more about Howard and what he is up to today, check him out here.
And now we've arrived at what MySpace is most famous for, and that is Friends. After all, that is what MySpace is, right? "A Place for Friends," as they like to say. On his site we can see that Joseph Mosca has 9 Friends. I'm not sure if that is a lot, but I seem to remember him having more a few years back. But a couple of them do look interesting! Icon, a gentleman seen pictured here on one very sporting motorcycle, describes himself this way: "Young at heart - slightly older in other places." And, "I can only please one person a day." Hmm. Icon is a 52 year old Capricorn who does not smoke or drink. He says his mood is "nervous," which to me means he should lighten up and have a nice glass of merlot. Another friend is the Rev. Norm. He is a straight white Caucasian Taurus who attended Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma. He describes himself as being "fast, athletic and flirtatious," and likes Elton John, Rod Stewart, Sting, and the B52s. Rev. Norm is the assistant manager of a Tulsa area golf course, and is pictured here standing bare chested on a putting green holding the pin. Fore!
For the rest you're just going to have to check out the site yourself. Have a great day and we'll see you again soon!
