As I mentioned, last week was SXSW. I didn't buy a wristband, but toyed with going to a few free shows. One of these shows was Justin Timberlake. I don't even care what you say... He would be great to see live. In order to RSVP for this show, you had to get on MySpace.
I could not remember my log-in. After 4 attempts, I finally logged in..... And it told me that my "classic" MySpace account was not good enough. I had to creat a NEW myspace account. (Lowercase "s".) In all honesty, the new myspace does look pretty cool and is probably a very good way to follow artists. But I was straight up confused. I felt 100 years old. (Or maybe I just felt like a 35 year old PC user on a Mac, but that is basically the same thing, right?)
I got kind of angry, because I couldn't find my blog entries. Before I had an actual blog, I used the MySpace blog. And, well.... That was when I was young and fun and single and there are a lot of memories documented there! (I mean, I went on a date with a guy I met online who was a doctor and a pilot and he flew me to an airport cafe where I saw Lance Armstrong. That is a fun memory!) I kept clicking around and finally found them. (But I was on the iPad and it looked weird.... And all my comments were gone. I need to look at it from a regular computer.) One of the things I loved about MySpace was the bulletins. Do you remember those? They were like surveys or quizzes or awesomeness? Well, I found one from 2006 and I'm going to update it. So if you hated bulletins, now would be a good time to close this blog entry. It's a long one.
