myspace impotence

The Michigan Design Militia has set up a MySpace account for the Shadow Art Fair and I can’t make heads or tails of it. I feel like I’m about 97 years old. I’m completely lost and my mailbox is filling up with people who “want to be added as (our) friends” as fast as I can delete them. (You are supposed to delete those, right?) I feel like pouring myself a big Rob Roy, turning the hi-fi up really loud, and smashing the hell out of my computer with a cane… I’m thinking about going to the AARP site and seeing if they have some kind of a tutorial… Surely there’s got to be a guide somewhere on-line for parents who want to spy on their kids, right?

    Uh, I think you go to MySpace and click “accept”. Here, I’ll add you as a friend so that you can practice…

    What happens when you “deny” someone’s offer of friendship?

    Sadness? Rejection?
    I’ll tell you when I get a “deny” from Mark. Can’t wait!

    Well, apparently nothing happens when you deny someone. It’s been over three hours now since I rejected Andy, and so far nothing’s happened.

    AARP does not have a tutorial on how to smash your computer with your cane. In fact, as you might expect, internet usage among the 50+ population has dramatically increased in the past decade (even among the 75+ population), and in fact going online is probably the best way to figure out if the new Medicare prescription drug benefit is right for you (if you’re age 65+). :) Data on internet usage among the older population: page 35 of http://assets.aarp.org/rgcenter/econ/fifty_plus_2006.pdf

    AARP does a fair amount of research and advocacy to ensure that there are consumer protections in relatively new technology services, such as VOiP and broadband.

    And if you want to find out about video games or win an iPod, see: http://www.aarp.org/learntech/computers/

    So there.

    Guess who works at AARP.

    I’m rarely caught off guard by the comments left on my site.

    “Impotence?” See what happens when you sell your organ…by the way I think we’re all avid for a follow up to that scintillating story (zzzzzzz)
