American Express Spam

Excerpt from an email I sent to American Express about spam email that I received
I received an email from you that arrived in my “Bulk” mail folder. The return email address was
from a third party called “play4keeps” not only do I think it is sad that you would have third party
send out email to people who might be interested in your services but I would NEVER click on a link in
this email. With all the depth of resources that your company has why would you let random spam portals
send out email in your name. I think the person who initiated this idea is bordering on retarded. Go
get yourselves a couple of servers, get that names yourselves and spare your brand name the drag in
technological mud.

Metaphors speak louder than words.

David Lazarus column in 01/26/03
JUST THE FACTS: Don’t know if you caught this the other day. President Bush
was at a St. Louis trucking company to cheerlead for his $674 billion
“economic stimulus plan.”

Ensuring that the right message came across, the president’s people brought
along a specially prepared canvas screen that created the illusion of Bush
standing before boxes marked “Made in U.S.A.”

They also taped over the real boxes at the company that were stamped “Made
in China.” The subterfuge was discovered only when reporters peeled away the
tape and looked at what was really there.

The Year Music dies

Great article in Wired about what could be the demise of the major record
labels. I for one think they have it coming.
Long live rock n roll, long live the artist and the small label.

Rain, rain. rain…. I’m just a little sick of all the rain. Nothing left to
do but sit around and play music or watch movies.
Still waiting for my POD to arrive from the ebay auction that I bought it.
Stuff is taking forever to get shipped these days.

The web is mixture of good news and bad news.
Good or funny News:
Robbie Williams says piracy is “Great”
Bad News:
RIAA bloodsuckers could get the right to get users names from their ISP

New Guitar

I cannot even begin to describe how great my new acoustic guitar is. I got a Taylor 414ce over the weekend as I have been coveting it for about a year and I have no words for what a difference it makes.
