BBspot Mailbag

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 cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


BBelievers

Someone takes the Trailer Reviews a bit too seriously ...

From: Mark
Date: Jun 15, 2007 2:00 PM
Subject: Trailer Review: Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
To: briggsb@bbspot.com

NO YOU ARE SO WRONG ABOUT EVERYTHING THIS MOVIE WILL TOTALLY ROCK AND YOU ARE JUST AN AWFUL, AWFUL MAN! AND SO STUPID! LIKE ANYONE WOULD EVER READ YOUR STUPID, UNFUNNY CRAP! AND YOU DON'T EVEN MENTION THAT JESSICAL ALBA IS TOTALLY HOT, MORE PROOF OF HOW TOTALLY STUPID YOU ARE!

YOURS IN EVERLASTING HATE, YOU STUPID MAN,
FFF (FANTASTIC FOUR FAN)

P.S. IF THIS IS EVEN HALF AS GOOD AS SHREK THREE THEN IT WILL WIN ALL THE OSCARS THAT SHREK WOULD HAVE WON BUT CARTOONS DON'T GET NOMINATED.

STUPID!

OK, this one was a bit too over the top. As I suspected, Mark is not a true BBeliever. He's just having a bit of fun.

The bands hoping to make contact with the Sony Music Exec keep rolling in...

HI, MR ANDREW

I'M PROBABLY NOT A CUTE GUY! BUT OUR MUSIC IS MORE THEN CUTE!

I'M A FRENCH SINGER AND I WORK WITH AN AMERICAN SINGER <snip> AND MUSICIENS IN ATLANTA.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTOR. PLEASE ANDREW TAKE A LOOK AT OUR PAGE:
<snip>

3 songs are avalaible on my space:
It's WORLD MUSIC, french pop,Afro beat, dance club.
I hope you'll like it. The album will be ready next month, we have 8 songs. THANKS A LOT AND TAKE CARE.

I'm probably not a cute guy? WTF is that supposed to mean?

It looks like the Icy Hot Stuntaz have reformed...

Wanna hear something new?

Stuntaz

Ashley Morgan is finally pleased.


Wheel of Inaction

Other BBspotters have been writing in with their opinions on Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series ...

To: briggsb@bbspot.com

I agree with the wheel of time stuff with RJ. I actually made it to book 6 in the end before quitting. Reading them is better I think as you can skip big chunks of boring bits, which is a bit harder on audiobook.

The end of the book is actually quite good, the last 100 pages or so STUFF ACUTALLY HAPPENS!one!!!eleven it is his viral way to suck you in to get the next one. I do wonder how good the "epic" would have been if it had been properly paced and kept down to 6 books or so.

I had a similar problem with the sword of truth series, where I quit after book 4. The first book is excellent, the 2nd is good. 3rd average. 4th poor. at point I gave up as there was a bit of clear trend, to predict the 5th book :D.

Now I know two series to avoid. Anything else out there I should avoid? Let me know.


Weekly Limerick

The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot...

From: Seth

Chinese train toys are painted with lead,
So conduct business elsewhere instead.
Don't give these to your boy,
He'll chew-chew on this toy,
And be on track for ending up dead.
