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.


I just choose names at random for my stories, and I chose Janet Fitch as my hypothetical developer at Blizzard Entertainment for the upcoming Lord of the Dance Expansion. Much to my surprise I received an e-mail from a Mr. Fitch at Blizzard....

From: xxxxxxx Fitch []

Subject: Did not

I just spoke with my mother, and she says she said no such thing.

Janet Fitch, lead developer at Blizzard Entertainment, said, "I think gamers are going to be really excited to play the Leaper and the Fiddler classes. They've got some great skills. They're also going to be wowed by the Assassin's Plié Attack, the Druid's Dance of Thunder and the Barbarian's Spinning Hip Thrust."

Serendipity defined.


I don't get much hate mail unless I make fun of religion or Macs, so I was surprised to get one about the zombie article...

Subject: RIAA Zombies


Dear Editors:

That article was tasteless, tacky and upsetting. The photo was disgusting. Please be more considerate in the future.

Generally, I enjoy BBSpot.

Thank You


The second Hater this week is wondering about the Kill Bill trailer review....

Subject: kill bill


errr, not too impressed with the kill bill reviewer:

"Kill Bill is the fourth film by director Quentin Tarantino."

true romance
res dogs
pulp fiction
Jackie brown
dusk tild awn

unless there is time travel here then that quote is bollox

True Romance and From Dusk Till Dawn were not directed by Tarantino, and geez the trailer itself says it's the fourth movie directed by him. Chill.
