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 Sony Music Exec gets to crush another band's dream...

Hey dude, hows it goin?, we are uk based rockers FREELOADER, we are a four piece metal band who write all our own stuff, we take influences from Punk/rock/metal/hiphop genres and mash it into our own brand of street metal, we have had recent successful support slots with Skindred and Tokyo Dragons(dunno if youve heard of them dudes, but Skindred especially are quite a big band!!!), we have had quite a lot of airplay especially over there in US(where we seem to go down very well), and we are now looking to get somewhere with a label, maybe you can help us?

Sorry, you guys aren't cute enough.

The Daylight Savings Time story didn't get on the front page of Digg, but it looks like it would've been fun if it had...

LOL so for half the year the world would ignore America as they would have the wrong days of the week!

Geek Weddings

Our Top 11 on geek weddings elicited a lot of e-mail from BBspotters. Not surprisingly, many of them have participated in geek weddings. Here are their stories...

"Groom comes down the aisle to the "Imperial March" from Star Wars."

My wife and I (both born in 1970, married in 1994) came this > < close to having the DJ at the reception play the Imperial March when he introduced us. We only feared the fist-fights between our friends who would find it hilarious and our relatives who would be scandalized.

The next BBspotters was at a wedding that did use the song...

About 6 years ago, I was a groomsman in a wedding. Not only was the "DJ" just a friend manning the mp3 player connected to an amplifier system, but the recessional (the part where we all left the ceremony) WAS accompanied by the Imperial March. It was a demand of the bride.

I predict a long, happy marriage.

Trailer Reviews

Is it any surprise this reader angered by my Wild Hogs Trailer Review has an AOL e-mail address...

You miss the point if a movie makes you laugh and takes your mind someplace anyplace, it's OK. I sick of so called movies that is blood and gore, or sends a message on how I can or should act, feel, think, ect. I like this movie for the fact that I laughed. Also it broke the rules IT WAS NOT FILLED WITH PC CRAP. I do think you need to get in touch with the kid in you lighten up about life get a HD and live a little with the rest of us that do work for a living. This Movie I know won't win anything but it's funning it's up there with the movie Blazing Saddles. But what you should do is make, act, in your own movie seeing that you know want we the people want? and know what everything about movies? what do you say??? Think you could take it? I think your the kid that took band or tried out for baseball and was told to go home, your not on the team. And now you judge.
thanks for the review. N.D.

I think he misses the point of a REVIEW! You do some judging in a review (also, I was on the baseball and basketball in high school (bite me)).

This BBspotter had a comment about Donnie Wahlberg who had the unfortunate luck to appear in Dead Silence...

The moody, brooding New Kid On The Block? It's _so_ good to know he still gets work. I believe he's from Boston originally, so, you know, it's good he's not just standing around on a corner somewhere. I hear that's dangerous lately.

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

It was found that the FBI acted
In bad faith
to get info extracted.
We're all terrorists, tracked
By the PATRIOT Act
Thus our freedoms are slowly [Redacted].
