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 though the pace has slowed down. Most are from the MySpace profile we created to go along with the story...

Messages received at the MySpace profile:

"Hi Andrew, come by and have a visit sometime, thanks!

"hey fella, are you looking for UK talent? If so, we'll send you our new demo, "11 Reasons to Be", it rocks! "

"ear i heard your only 13 YEARS OLD !!!....
now thats funny ,,, ha ha haa ,,,,,

sort it out nutter !!!!......

love & peace,,,,, "

Not to be outdone, Esenam picks up some more BBelievers:

Would you provide me with contact information for Nigerian billionaire Esenam Ayele?

I think Esenam needs a MySpace profile now.

Subject: Esenam Ayele

I was searching the net, to come across the article from Esenam Ayele - the Nigerian Billionaire, which was written by yourself.

I punched into to search engine - money to give away. The reason for this, is that I have an enormous vision of 'holding the space' for a childcare service. One that honours children and their right of passage. I am trained in the industry - but more importantly have an innate connection with little ones and their enormous journey. I have everything that is needed, actually I have more than everything that is needed - except the $$$$$. I am trusting in the process of life, and that my committment and vision is one that is true and genuine - and I believe that the money will come. Can you please forward on details of Esenam Ayele, or more info in relation to this article - or anyone else that you may be aware of that has an open heart to assist others in achieving their passion and life driven desires

Thankyou for your time,

Is everyone else as creeped out by this as I am?

Paramount Pictures Announces Babel 2: Christmas Vacation!

Hollywood, CA - Due to the overwhelming critical success of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel, Paramount Pictures is proud to announce a sequel for December of 2007, Babel 2: Christmas Vacation!

Babel 2The sequel will follow the entire family of Richard and Susan to Mexico were they attempt to rescue their deported nanny Amelia. Along the way they're kidnapped by drug lords, the mother is gang raped, and the kids are sold into white slavery. In the effects-laden finale, the family is transported back in time to the era of the Mayans where they are disemboweled. Will they make it to the North Pole in time to meet Santa Clause? Only if a quadriplegic girl living in France can solve her lice problem in time.

Also, be sure to look for the soundtrack featuring Sir Elton John backed by Los Lobos and Kenny G for release in November of 2007.


Weekly Limerick

The winner of this year's Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. I haven't decided where to put it yet, so this week's I'll put in the Mailbag...

From: Seth

PS3: What's the acronym for?
The P stands for "not for the Poor"
The S means "Shame that we Aren't the Wii." And the 3
Is how many are sold at each store

That's all for this week!
