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 executive still gets bands requesting to be his friend. This guy tries to be nonchalant, but you know he's hoping the President of Sony Music takes notice...

your profile's a lot of fun andrew! keep the stuff coming :) thanx 4 the add.. cheers!

And in case you forgot, here's the background story on this MySpace profile.

Signs You're Going to Die

A couple readers wrote in with some more suggestions for our Top 11 Signs You're Going to Die in this Movie list...

To: Brian Briggs <>

You make references to your sweetheart you're going to marry when the war ends and you go home.

You're in a kung-fu movie and blood comes out of your mouth.

You become a rouge agent.

You injure / kill / rape / assault a member of the hero's family or friends.

You're confused when the guy you're standing next to yells "oh, SHIT!" and starts running like hell.

You refuse or forget to remove your impossibly tall & slutty high-heel shoes when fleeing from the serial killer.

You disbelieve that anything weird is going on act all macho and mock those pussies for being scared.

you obviously forget to mention something with "Jack Bauer". Ok, it's a TV show, not a movie, but I definitely expected something like "You pissed off Jack Bauer" or "You are somehow related to Jack Bauer" (which would be enough for a "sign to die").


Summer Intern

In the BBlog, I mentioned that I might be getting a summer intern. Here are some more suggestions for crappy jobs I could give him...

Here's a good idea for the intern. Give him a role of pennies and tell him to figure out exactly how many rolls you will need to get to fill the room. Then when he's done tell him you gave him the wrong roll of coins. Then when you run out of denominations of coins just tell him he took to long and you had to cancel your plans for the quarter room.

Make the summer intern be your "hit" counter for the website. When your not there, make him make a play a sound bite like "BING". Only when you're not there.

Considering BBspot gets over a million page views a month, that's an awful lot of BINGs.

Weekly Limerick

The winner of the 2003 and 2006 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

The realm Limbo, where dead babies dwell,
Is now gone, since the Pope is so swell.

Realms that may not exist
Being dropped from the list?
Maybe next week they'll get rid of hell.
