Advice for Girls Who Can’t Be Alone…Even in Photographs

Ms. Vainglorious’ MySpace School for Proper Young Ladies: Part II

So, it all starts out with a simple fear of going to the bathroom on your own—and hey, that’s understandable. Women have insisted on bathroom buddies for decades. But when you can’t post a photo of yourself on your MySpace profile—without the company of your sexy gal pal—I loose the ounce of compassion and patience I once cherished. These “double trouble” photos are pushing me to the very brink of sanity.

You know the ones I’m talking about—the photo of the two girls with low cut dresses; heads are touching, cheeks sucked in, lips pursed. With wine in hand, they burn holes into the camera with their sultry eyes, as if to say, “If you think I’m sexy, and you want my body, come on sugar, let me—er, I mean, the both of us—know.”

I mean really, do you bring your friends with you to the DMV when your get your license photo taken? Are you trying to seduce me with your homo-erotic-sorority-sister-act? Well, I’m not impressed. It’s your profile, so get your own photo. And while you’re at it, dig up that pesky little thing called “dignity.”

You can kiss my country adz

Is there anything better than the The Dukes of Hazzard? I mean you got crazy country boys, fast cars, hard liquor and Daisy Duke's short shorts. Okay, maybe it's not 21st Century PC but neither is Joe Simpson's oogling of his daughter's - recent Daisy Duke Jessica Simpson - upper body, but we seem to give that a pass... ewww.

The reason I bring up The Dukes is this page. With the cars, country music and all, I get moonshine madness. Next thing you know I'll wrap myself in a rebel flag and drink cleaning products.

"It might be the corn likker talkin' but you're quite the stud, Boss Hog."

Best thing about this page is the car. But it's lost behind all the personal noise. Position everything around the car, I mean what's more important, you or that hot rod?

The Latest Movie Hype on MySpace

Posted by: aja_blogger


By Aja Fern

As the ads for Johnny Depp’s new film “Sweeny Todd” fade away, ads for a new movie called “Untraceable” have been popping up all over MySpace. In this movie, an FBI agent specializing in cyber crimes stumbles upon a Web site called killwithme.com. (And, yes, a site by this title exists on the Web, spawned, no doubt, by the cyber-savvy Hollywood PR machine.) In “Untraceable,” the killer posts live videos of his victims on the Internet. The more people who log on to see the video feed, the faster the victim dies. Sounds gruesome, doesn’t it? FBI agent Jennifer Marsh, played by Diane Lane, is tasked with hunting down a seemingly untraceable serial killer. As time runs out, the cat and mouse chase becomes more personal.

Well, it gets better. If you click on one of the ads for the movie (found everywhere on MySpace), you are automatically directed to the movie’s official site. Once there, you can view pictures, find out tons of information about the movie, and play a game with the killer himself. That’s right! The game asks you to become an agent to help catch the killer and shut down his Web site. But be careful. Every once in a while the killer will instant message you menacing sentiments order to break you down.

With over 20 million members, MySpace can offer Hollywood advertisers a built-in audience and the promise of self-generating viral promotion on a grand scale. And what better film to promote than “Untraceable?” Not only is it fitting that it involves technology, but the film will surely make cyber geeks and MySpacers think twice about what they do online. If you thought computer viruses and hackers were bad, think again—the next time you log on to a Web site, you could become an accomplice to murder.
