All The President's ASS WHOOPIN: Grandma and The Washington Post
Now's the moment where we need your help.
The Washington Post is going to send us a copy for our own personal use, but we need you guys out there who found Grandma through the glorious printed words of the press to take your copy of today's Washington Post (December 3rd, 2005 for you obsessive compulsives that read this tomorrow), hold up the front page so we can see the article, give a peace sign, middle finger, metal horns, whatever you like and have someone take a digital photo of you and e-mail it to us.
Why do we need this, you ask?
So we can put it on the internet for all to see, of course.
The article itself was quite good, again mentioning what we've said here all along- that elderly gaming is not as uncommon as people think, so don't fuck with them or they will, as the modern vernacular phrase goes- "p0wn you." From the e-mails we've received so far I'll clarify two things right off the bat: It's "Pong" not "Pogo," the interviews were conducted on the phone, so sometimes things get jumbled. Second- to all those who request "hits" performed on "marks," whatever the hell that means, Grandma was joking when she told the reporter she would "KILL" for an XBox 360. (...well, HALF-joking. Just send us the pictures and you BETTER FUCKING PAY WHEN THE JOB IS DONE.)
Because we're all jonesing for another edition of Ask Grandma Hardcore, The Washington Post is having an online Q&A December 5th at 12:00noon EST; you can submit your questions now right here.
This morning at 10:00am Grandma received a call from a radio tech show in Detroit. The hosts and the producer of the show were very nice to us, although we jokingly gave the producer hell when he informed us of the "young MALE" demographic that their show targets, hence the subject of video games. "Well, I wouldn't say male..." I said, which Grandma quickly followed with "Yeah, I wasn't going to say anything."
I hope the producer realized we were just joshing him. To said producer: we think you're cool, dude; thanks for the interview!
Sorry the distance of time between posts has grown a bit, I'm trying to keep up with Grandma- and I promise I'll do better. As the article says: "[...] Tim, who updates the blog at least once a day." If I don't update now, Bob Woodward is going to be on my ass like Robert Redford at Sundance.
