Alexplorer Goes Time Traveling...

If you're just joining this series already in progress, then it means you don't have a time machine, so here's the short version: Every Tuesday (your present), I come back from my adventures time-traveling around MySpace and fill you in on what happened to people from my past as they keep slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.

Ah, here's one now...


Ray (not his real name) was a friend of mine in high school for a while, probably during my junior year.  I really don't remember a lot about him.  He was kind of over-enthusiastic about stuff.  I got him in trouble with his dad when let him borrow my copy of the Pink Floyd The Wall movie and the hookers got topless during 'Young Lust.'

I thought his profile was a joke the first couple times I ran across it.  No, seriously.  The headline reads "check me out," and there's this guy who lists himself as a swinger with this picture.

I think the original version of his page was a bit more explicit (I wish I had saved a copy), but he lists among his interests: "sex,music,dark art,firefighting," which, coincidentally, was the rejected original title of a popular Red Hot Chili Peppers album.  He reigned the rest of the profile in some and now we're down to this About Me which reads in its entirety: 

i'm just your average everyday romantic guy.
I wonder if he could supply us with a list of references?

Hypothetical letter I'll absolutely, positively never send to him:

So, uh, you got a girl of your own or you just wanna do a threesome with mine?
