Not to Bag On MySpace Or Anything...

... But I sort of doubt the real Kate Moss wants to be my MySpace friend, no matter what the friend request says.

Yes, I friended "Kate" anyway. I friend everyone. I'm just that way. I'm just saying.

You friend everybody? *skibbles off to test this theory*

John Scalzi | May 24, 2007 09:19 AM

Just friended you, PixelFish. See how easy it is?

PixelFish | May 24, 2007 09:27 AM

Woot! Scalzi friended me! Now I'm going to Disneyland.

What?

No.

I've never been.

I'm a myspace loser. I has a page under my music name Brittney Sparse but I've never taken out the time to figure it out. I don't even know how to friend someone.

Winton Godfrey has no myspace page, though. I got that on him.

Chang: To be honest, I always forget about my MySpace page until somebody reminds me of its existence. I've been meaning to redesign it (with something other than my too-busy World of Warcraft skin Blizzard made for me to cut and paste.) As a designer, MySpace's layout makes me twitch, but up til now I've been too lazy to do much with it. *mumbles something about the cobbler's children going barefoot*

chang, I guess that doesn't make you realer than evar!

Don't worry, I don't have a myspace either because I have a real life. I think. Wait, I better check on that.

whats up brother in law have a nice day

jason doan | May 24, 2007 10:31 AM

sorry about the anonymous

John Scalzi | May 24, 2007 10:33 AM

No worries, Jason!

Kate | May 24, 2007 10:38 AM

Alas, I'm not the Kate you're looking for. I had thought for a minute to add you as a friend on my page, but then I realized that:

a.) I don't ever visit myspace anymore now that I have a new website. In fact, there is a huge link on my profile telling people that I don't participate anymore.

b.) The reason I left was because it was beginning to feel like I was revisiting high school. If I got one more stupid: ZOMG. You opened up this bulletin, you are going to die unless you repost this with a subject line of (Insert best friend's name) is a whore/jock.

Like,ummm no.

Aw man! I thought I was special.

John Scalzi | May 24, 2007 10:54 AM

Well, you are. Just not that way.

Anonymous | May 24, 2007 11:54 AM

My space is in a nice orthopedic chair in front of my computer. Don't need no MySpace page.

chang, myspacier than ever! | May 24, 2007 12:07 PM

To those who quesiton my realness:

I'm still realer than evar. My alter-ego Brittney Sparse is more real than evar what with the myspace page.

Ooh, I'm woozy. TIme for breakfast.

PixelFish: try this: http://www.mikeindustries.com/blog/archive/2006/04/hacking-myspace-layouts

I also befriend everyone, and in my top 36 you'll find Baudelaire, Balzac, Rimbaud, Sand, Tolstoy, both of the Shelleys, Milton, Keats, Kipling, Poe, Browning (Elizabeth), and a handful of others, all very likely to say yes. Just click on my name, or go to myspace.com/victormariehugo

My only complaint is that they put a maximum of 99 years old on your age. That sux. But I've been on long enough so it now says 100. I bet you never expected to see Victor Hugo write 'that sux.'

Victor Hugo | May 24, 2007 04:34 PM

Yes, I will confirm it to anyone who asks. I subscribe to your RSS feed.

Alex S. | May 24, 2007 07:01 PM

If you are on Tribe, I'll friend ya there..

Lizzibabe | May 24, 2007 11:52 PM

Love the tunes. Acceptance was nice and relaxing.
