Social networks...
So, what social networks are you freaks on these days?

I know Friendster's so 2003 and is too mainstream these days, Orkut's full of nothing but racists and damn Brazilians, MySpace is choc full of crappy bands and shitty blogging, Facebook's full of ``shockingly'' named groups, and i-Neighbors just didn't catch on.

Where are the hipsters of today checking out each other's online profiles?

So, as mentioned, what are madisonwi people doing tomorrow night? Do you want to go to a good Arizona-style rock show? More specifically, want to see this band? If so, you should go to Luther's Blues.

Yes, this is a Jersey boy pushing an Arizona band to a bunch of people in Wisconsin. It's like that SUV I was driving behind today that had a giant Wisconsin W in the window, Georgia plates, and a license plate holder from a car dealership in Oregon. And that's why this country is so great. Be jealous, graye.

i don't check out online profiles. i only use "social networks" to stalk people.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 22nd, 2005 09:29 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I think we're both talking about the same thing. Most people I know who use them ``check out'' online profiles so as to stalk people they've slept with/want to sleep with/etc.

I'm really terribly sorry that I got sick and didn't see you before you left. I'm sure that we'll see each other again, on one coast or another. I have a feeling life will work out that way.

It sounds like you're slipping right back into the swing of things out there.

in that case, i have used myspace recently, but only for stalking purposes. and i didn't really check out profiles, i pretty much confined myself to two. if you were to figure out my myspace page, it wouldn't be hard to figure out who i was stalking

;-)

anyways, i'm sorry i missed seeing you guys as well. after a crappy december i got busy taking care of myself, and that's the way it is. i'll be back for a week sometimes next month, and i have to finish up a client in madison anyways (and i have no car), so i'll be coming by BC during that week.

*looks at your MySpace profile*

Yeah, that was really easy.

jenniever and I will be in the other Madison the first weekend of March, but other than that I should be around and looking forward to seeing you.

I would have seen you, if it wasn't for the flu. Damn flu.

You should be posting more pictures to go with your poetry and stories, sir.

LISTEN UP

I think my mom might be going to that.

Luther's Crescent City serves an oyster po'boy that my sister loves.

I'm not going to either, because I am an enemy of fun.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 22nd, 2005 09:27 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

WTF?

I was hoping you would use that icon, actually.

THAT BEING SAID

If you're mom's going to go see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, you should go see them as well. Download a couple of MP3s from my big-ass Mexico recap, see if you like what you hear, and go if you do.

The guy's a good show, and I normally don't go for this kind of soft music. Soft as in not angry industrial or metal. Not soft as in [insert politician to make fun of here]'s resolve.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: February 22nd, 2005 09:45 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: WTF?

If you mention the motion W, or that community, odds are in your favor that I will use that icon.

I'll give them a listen tonight, though, and (if I like it) see if tickets are still available. Last time I made a last-second decision to hit a show there, it was sold out.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 22nd, 2005 10:07 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: WTF?

Then you should be downloading now.

It would have been hilarious if them being out there coincided with wideathtrip. ``Yeah, we went to Mexico one weekend to see them play, and to Wisconsin another weekend.''
assfingers From: assfingers Date: February 22nd, 2005 10:10 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: WTF?

The job precludes me from such D/Ling. In any event, the MP3 would be useless to me without speakers.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 22nd, 2005 10:14 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

If only I were home

I could call you up and play you the songs over the phone using voip.

You could call me.

Oh yeah, this might be able to make or break the deal for you. He's the guy who did the intro music and all the incidental music for King of the Hill, and almost every time I've seen him live he's done it. Often while throwing in extra yeehaws, downing tequila out of a flask, and so forth.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: February 22nd, 2005 10:19 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: If only I were home

THAT IS A BONUS, IN MY OPINION

YEEHAW AND TEQUILA!

Re: If only I were home

Read my summary of the concert. He sings about getting drunk, going to Mexico, and good times. He drinks from a flask, and drinks whatever the crowd hands to him. If it's a good concert, he'll be a sweaty drunken mess by the end.

You should go see him, if only to make me and jenniever jealous.
jenniever From: jenniever Date: February 22nd, 2005 11:32 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: If only I were home

if you don't even attempt to go, i'm gonna be really sad.

they are, by far, one of the best live acts i've ever seen. Listening to the MP3s doesn't even come close to how cool they are live.

They are so cool live, that after Russ saw them once in New York for a measly $15, he spent hundreds of dollars to go see them in mexico. And he'll say it was worth every penny.


Once, I saw him take a shot out of a harmonica.


TAKE A SHOT OUT OF A HARMONICA, MAN.


I'm not even sure how I can make you understand how much you need to go. Except for the fact that I'm probably scaring you now.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 23rd, 2005 01:26 am (UTC) (Hard link)

To be fair...

I also did it to spend a weekend in Mexico. C'mon, a weekend in Mexico.

That being said, it is an amazing live act.

I'm not jealous, Fox. I'm not jealous because I hope my jealousy is something you need, like water.

I hope your lips crack with the drought of my envy.

In other news, social networking == teh retarded. I don't use 'em. I have the friendster accuont, and the orkut account, and teh myspace account, and I use none of the above.

Really, pimping aside, the closest thing to that stuff I use is either LJ or flickr.
jenniever From: jenniever Date: February 22nd, 2005 11:45 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I have no idea what posessed Russ to think that you were jealous of us.


Don't even get me started on healthcare. Or the fact that our president could be outwitted in just about any forum by my second grade sunday-school teacher, Mrs. Vanderplatt.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 23rd, 2005 01:24 am (UTC) (Hard link)

We do have one thing going for us...

In the Fallout time-line, we do end up invading Canada in 2077. Err, sorry, ``annexing'' Canada.

You're just probably my favorite non-USian who reads my journal, so you were the first counterpoint that came to mind.

I'm not a huge social networking person, unlike petemagyar and some of his friends. Once I saw them being referred to in standup comedy acts in the winter of 2003-2004, I knew they were over. But it seemed that there was always another one coming out to take the exodus of hipsters from the last, and I haven't heard of a new one lately.

Believe me, I'm more of a LJ-head, and pimp that far more than anything else out there.

You should answer this when you get a chance.

Facebook, bitches!

Nothing like the volley of pokes I have waiting for me whenever I log into Facebook...

Re: Nothing like the volley of pokes I have waiting for me whenever I log into Facebook...

Speaking of. Poke.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 24th, 2005 12:02 am (UTC) (Hard link)

POKE

Verna and I once had a poke-fest that was going on for months.
idunn From: idunn Date: February 24th, 2005 12:21 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Really?

POKE.

I bet the SUV was owned by a military member. I've got Cali plates, North Carolina insurance, and an Illinois Driver's license. I know there's a Naval base there Jersey because my detailer offered me orders there, but I said "That close to kingfox?! No way!" Did you happen to get a look at the windshield to see if it had military stickers?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 23rd, 2005 03:26 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Good point...

Based on the giant red W, I was assuming a recent graduate of said university. In my mind they were visiting friends in Jersey up from where they live in Georgia, have family out in Oregon, and went to school in Wisconsin.

There's a lot of Marines from this area. I see those stickers constantly. And I used to live less than a quarter mile from a large Army arsenal. Didn't remember the Naval base, but that makes sense. I know I've been stuck in traffic during Fleet Week many times.

You should have come out. This area's fun!

Catch 27 is rediculous. I don't have a profile there or anything, but saw it mentioned in an article about how the facebook was like crack... so I saw the first page. It is silly. You can buy three friends for a dollar.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 23rd, 2005 03:27 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I think you told me about that the other day. That's completely hilarious and insane.

I wonder if they'll be around in a year or two.
madolan From: madolan Date: February 23rd, 2005 04:19 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I use this crazy thing called Live Journal. It works wonnders.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 24th, 2005 12:04 am (UTC) (Hard link)

Right on!

You and me both.

It's got the community features of Orkut, it's got the blogging features of MySpace (just better), and the widespread adoption of Friendster. It's like the best of all worlds.
