Now you too can enjoy my inbox without the annoying spam. Every
week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer
of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting
them and some are just simply amazing. Since I've gotten such a
from posting these messages in the BBlog, I've decided make it a regular
feature. Here's the second installment of the BBspot Mailbag.
No wonder people believe these stories when radio stations are
reporting them as fact...

My name is XXXXXXXXXX and I am a radio talk show producer
at 610 WTVN-AM in Columbus, Ohio. The host of the show is Sterling
and he is on the air 7p-10p (eastern) each weekday evening.
We read a recent article of yours, 'Man
Hopes Episode III Doesn't Ruin His Childhood' and I was
wondering if you are able to pass along any contact information
for Lance Hymer..an e-mail or number. We would like to have
him on the show for a segment.
Thank you for your time and any information you can pass along!
Who said morning talk radio was dumb?
This one isn't technically a believer, but I really don't think
he gets the Trailer

I take it you didn't see the movie. You probably think Black
Hawk Down is a movie about a wounded bird.
Oh please, Black Hawk Down is about the feathers of
the fabled black hawk of Montana.
Our AvantGo section has mysteriously stopped working, and there
have been no replies to my e-mails. They better hurry up or this
guy is gonna be in pain...

Sometimes I can see alot of your computer room in the Spot
Cam. Sometimes not.
But I was wondering if you could provide your readers with
additional pictures of the room from several angles so we can
try to make our computer room look EXACTLY like yours', because
then, when People come over and I show them my computer room
I can say, "Behold, its just like Brian Briggs' Room!" And
they'll all be like "Woah". And I'll be the coolest
guy on my street.
From now on I'm keeping my blinds closed.
This was the first e-mail I read about the redesign. Needless
to say I got tweaking right away....

OH MY GOOD FUCKING GOD! WTF happened to BBSpot? I keep hitting
refresh and it still looks like yahoo on crack. I mean, I have
used the Internet for 11 years now and only four (4) websites
are worthy of my morning routine. Eggs, Pancakes, Jolt, Marlboros,
CtrlAltDel-Online.com, MallMonkeys.com, Slashdot.com, and BBSpot.com.
. . In that order.
Imagine how I felt barely into my second cigarette, and certainly without
enough time for the caffine to kick in when I though that acid from college
really could cause flashbacks.
My only hope is that is one of those "test pages" to determine
market response. If so, here is my response: "IT FUCKING SUCKS DONKEY
A few e-mail messages later and this reader offered some
more thoughtful suggestions. You have been assimilated.
Another reader has a differing opinion about the redesign...

I just wanted to mention that when I first saw the new site
design, I was pleased. Obviously, the person that said the
new design "F***ING SUCKS DONKEY BALLS" has been
smoking a few too many of those balls.
That's all for this week. Thanks.
