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.


The story about the teen posing as a record executive on MySpace that lured bands to Los Angeles still is getting some BBelievers. Most are from the MySpace profile we created to go along with the story...

Messages received at the MySpace profile's Inbox:

"Hey Ashley...haha"

"I would like to get my band signed perhaps. We don't have any demo's up on computers or on myspace or anything. But we have a pop/punk sound"

"Please Come check out my demo and video. i'm a hot unsigned chi town artist i'm doin my thang i'm diffrent from the rest. It won't be a waste of your time i promise you. keep doin ya thang and check me out. looking for management, Producer, Label, ect. Thanks for your time."

Of course, there are people who are only encouraging the BBelievers by posting their own testimonials in the publicly vieawable MySpace comments:

"You are the greatest of all time. Thanks for helping Whitey on the Moon achieve its hopes and dreams.

Please let me know when you'd like us to sign the paperwork. We are looking for rental space in LA so that we can record the concept double-album that you wrote us about in style. BTW, What's up with your assistant? I thought he was going to call us."

"Thanks for signing my band!"

"Andrew, you're awesome man! Thanks for the add, and the recording deal! I had to pinch myself on the way from LAX, in the stretch limo! There was Perrier in the fridge . . . WOW!"

This one isn't a BBeliever, but you can tell from his question that he's not a regular reader of BBspot...

Any surprise that's from an AOLer?

If you dare to upgrade your PC,
Vista may require licensing fee.
WoWers know: If it's true
You can't upgrade eq,
The solution is just more XP.

That's all for this week!
