Thought of the Day

From Patton Oswalt of all people.

AVC: Youíve stuck with MySpace as sort of your social-networking site of choice. Youíve also taken some distance from Facebook and sworn off Twitter. Why is that?

PO: I havenít sworn off Facebook. Iím on Facebook. Thereís a fan page on Facebook that I will update, but Iím on there myself under a pseudonym, because there were a lot of people able to private-message me on Facebook, and it was getting really weird. And then with MySpace, I just donít read messages. I delete everything, and I just post updates every now and then. I donít know, thereís something about MySpace for someone as OCD as me. MySpace is somehow more welcoming than Facebook. And Twittering, I justÖ Ugh. I like having radio silence. I think radio silence is an important part of any public figureís day. We havenít seen it yet, but thereís going to be a generation that comes up where the new trend will be complete anonymity. Itíll be cool to have never posted anything online, never commented, never opened a webpage or a MySpace, never Twittered. I think everyone in the future is going to be allowed to be obscure for 15 minutes. Youíll have 15 minutes where no one is watching you, and then youíll be shoved back onto your reality show. I think Andy Warhol got it wrong.


  1. Looks like Sible Edmunds was allowed to testify. The stuff she says is so crazy the press doesn’t know what to do with it.

    If she is lying then release the documents and let’s see. But, she has been sticking to the same story for years.
