Grandma Reaches Front Page of MTV.com; Suck It Ashley Simpson!
Oh yes. Radiohead; Nirvana; Gorillaz; Daft Punk... GRANDMA. Notice poor Hillary underneath the gaming champion; proving that this week- it really is the week for gamers at MTV. Last night we watched the True Life show on Professional Gaming. Man, now THAT is talent. Grandma's hardcore to be sure- but she's not like the pros out on the MLG circuit; wasting folks in record numbers in CounterStrike and Halo 2 and Super Smash Brothers. That has to be a TON of pressure. Shit, all Grandma has to do is enjoy them, they have to be on top all the time, or they suck.
Also now on MTV.com is Grandma's Q&A for the Obsessed piece. On the page you'll find some of Grandma's favorite movies, songs, bands, etc., as well as a nifty photo slide show of a bunch of new and old pictures. Grandma hates looking at pictures of herself, so you can imagine the sort of reaction I heard. "Get that off the fucking screen! I look STUPID! I can't believe you sent them that picture!"
"Oh yeah? Look at that picture we gave them of me playing Nintendo back in the 80's! THAT's stupid! You look cool!"
Which is true, she does look awesome. MTV suits her personality just fine.
We have some more posts coming today; a lot of forums are mentioning Grandma and the responses are ...interesting- so I thought I'd highlight a few Grandma and I found enjoyable to read. Also, Grandma is playing strong on Fatal Frame 3, but wouldn't you know it- ghosts are somewhat of a bitch to kill! Also coming tonight is our Monday Night Blog Round-Up; in which we feature some of Grandma's friends and some gaming news just in case you missed it. Knowing our regulars, however, it's unlikely you missed ANYTHING.
