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

Then:
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.'

Now:
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:
Ray,

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

-Alex.
