Let's be friends!


From what I can tell, MySpace is obviously dead. It’s been giving me the above “server errors” for like a couple of days now. Good riddance, I say. It always was a piece of crap.

So I’m fully prepared to put the whole MySpace thing to bed. But now this Facebook thing appears to be all the rage.

Ashlea and Dave and Zach and some of the San Francisco crew got me started on it and now I’m getting little “friend requests” like every day. It’s cool and all but all this social networking gets kinda silly. I mean, I like it and it’s nice to reconnect with old friends and all that but for me these things always kind of become glorified address books. What do I do after I get all these friends? I don’t know.

And at 33 I’m kind of at that age where most of my friends are married, most of them with children, and sadly most of them afflicted with the cyber-retardation that seems to come with it. I mean, I’ll say things to them like “MySpace” or “Facebook” or “internet” or whatever only to get prolonged silence followed by “I don’t really know anything about that kind of stuff.”

Then again, I guess I am 33 and I was never really the type of person who spends all day online IM’ing and posting little comments about my friends and tricking out my page like a Mexican low-rider with custom graphics and slideshows and surveys and stuff.

On the plus side, I will say whoever designed the Facebook site used something more advanced than the ’88 Compaq that was I’m pretty used to design the horrendous…..server error…..server error……MySpace.

Hell, MySpace always worked about as well as a unilateral invasion of Iraq.

Whatever, Tom. You suck. And your picture makes you look stupid.

Murdoch owns MySpace now. It's probably crashing due to the abundance of advertising he's having to place on it to support it.

It's probably crashing under its own weight due to listing so far to the right.

superpoke is only fun because you can throw sheep at people.
