No, I dont have a myspace but I looked at yours. We like alot of the same stuff, kinda funny. Music was close Im not into rap but all the others just nailed it. Blink 182 is one of my favorites and you mentioned old Metallica, to me 80's Metallica is all there is, lol. Gladiator, one of the best movies ever made. All the fighting spurs the caveman in me. Exercising, me 4-5 day a week. No, Im not looking for a date. I just found it interesting that Im twice your age and share so many of the same interests. My wife is in her 20's so I guess Im just young at heart.

I don't. I think my generation (early 30s) missed out. Then again, my generation is in the habit of wearing shirts an probably wouldn't have pictures to post if "shirtless" is a myspace requirement. *just kidding*

myspace rule 1.24 clearly states that you must post at least 1 picture without a shirt on

I used to work out 3 days a week, so I'm the weakest, lol. This semester I plan another 3 day week routine, I wish I had it in me for those extra days.

I'm working on a beer belly. I want to be round and shiny like a bowling ball. Since I'm only 140 pounds now, I figure that'll make me look kind of like a frog on a stretcher.

I definitely missed the MySpace boat. But I have some friends in my age group that have joined up looking for women. MySpace seems to be just one big hookup joint.

Which leads me to my next statement: blinkwatt, you have the most classic, most stereotypical, most narcissistic MySpace profile I've ever seen. Does it actually work for ya? I hope the ladies love it or something!!

Well I dont go "hunting for women" on Myspace, but yes I have gone out with a women or two I met off there. Infact one is meeting me at my gym Monday to work out with me. Sometimes they are weird women though. Some 38 year old women with three kids told me to "come over and wrap her Christmas tree" last year. I might have considered it if she looked better.

That website has caused me more problems, dramas and other b.s. than any one single thing that has ever come from the internet....hands down. What a headache.


In a non-sexual way (or maybe not!), our modern culture has become extremely voyeuristic. Keeping our personal lives personal has become outdated and uncool.
sign of the times I guess. Its the "full access" that has made its growth so explosive where more limited access sites like friendster have failed. Myspace fully exploits that unavoidable human emotion to spy on others you don't know and worse those you do know.There's just something creepy about peering into the personal lives of others and even more bizzare is that all the participants do it willingly.

I don't know if its the Paris Hiltons, Jessica SImpsons and reality shows, etc. broadcasting personal lives in full public view on TV and in print 24/7 that have convinced us that letting complete strangers see our personal sides (usually in the name/quest of getting tail) is ok. We complain about people invading our phone/email privacy, stealing our identities, stalking! etc. while on the other hand we broadcast our friends, family to anyone with an internet connection. An insane contradiction.
Those dudes at myspace are laughing all the way to the bank while people play into those negative human tendencies (jeaoulousy, greed, voyeurism etc) on a daily basis.

p.s.
There was a GREAT article about myspace in June's(?) Vanity Fair. "Hobie" aka Jeremy Jackson from Baywatch now a 26 year old reformed meth junkie plays a big role. Though he has no money, lives with his mother and has to go to his neighbohr's(and 12 step counselor) house to use their internet!!!, he spends endless hours promoting night clubs in LA stripmalls while putting notches in his bedpost. A great read on the business end and how Fox bailed out Myspace's parent company from a mountain of legal problems by buying them out for cheap.

Adam, maybe you should just hit the gym more often. It seems the only ones who ever think this are the ones out of shape.

ah the shirtless debate...

Here in Nu Joy-z we have what some call (themselves even) "the guido"
I have many friends who call themselves "guidos". Some uptight folks have called me a guido simply for having a sports car.


The convertible owner+shirtless thing made me remember this posting on NJguido.com, the writer proposes a high ocuppancy vehicle lane just for jersey guidos.
(I'm not kidding this site is for real and was very popular with guido and non-guidos until myspcae arrived). They even featured it in the Washington Post.
I think it was the inspiration for the MTV True Life "I'm a jersey shore guy" episode.


"-- THE GUIDO EXPRESS LANE --
The proposed Guido Express Lane, or G.E.L., is structured identically to
the H.O.V. lanes introduced in the late 90's across much of NJ, NY and
PA.
The following requirements for access to the G.E.L. will apply to all
vehicle occupants:
Cut-off shirts or wife beaters must be worn at all times. If the vehicle
is a convertible, no shirts are allowed.
Capri pants must be worn. Addidas pants are acceptable only with
matching jackets and a Kangol hat.
All vehicle occupants must have identical haircuts - spiked all around
(including the back) or must have shaved heads. All sideburns must be
shaved to a point.
All body hair must be completely shaven.
All vehicles in the G.E.L. must be considered "exotic" or "luxury cars,"
but must be paid for by the driver's parents.
Vehicle must contain at least 13 pounds of fake silver bracelets and
necklaces.
Necklaces may only be loose enough to allow minimal breathing.
Should any member(s) of the vehicle fail to comply with any one of the
aforementioned requirements, said member(s) will receive a two-month
suspension from Joey's in Clifton and Tempts.
In addition to the obvious ecological benefits, the proposed G.E.L.
would also provide the following free of charge:
Upon entering the G.E.L., the vehicle's radio would automatically be
tuned to a satellite feed of "What is Love" by Haddaway or "Louder Than Love"
by TKA. (Driver preference)
The center divider would be lined with Sunburst Ultra Sun 4000 series
tanning lamps which would run 24 hours a day to ensure a perfect pre-beach/club
complexion." AJ Kowalski

My friend called me one for that picture. He is moving to New York if that is any constilation.
