Gone for 9 days

Well guys.. I'm on vacation from my regular job all next week. I'm headed up to NYC (Manhattan) to talk to some record exec's about signing a record deal. I haven't told any of you this, but I co-wrote a #1 single that's sold over 150,000 copies. Because of this, a record company is interested in my partner and I writing a 12 track album. SO! Wish me luck.. if this works the way I want it to, I'll come back with a very, very fat wallet.

Anyway.. don't let the board go to crap while I'm gone. See you guys in 10 days!

Re: Gone for 9 days

Carl you dog, been holding out on us? If you strike it rich I think you owe all of us, after all, your single must be about jeeps and all of us have "inspired" you to write the single. If it weren't for our influence, you wouldn't be going up there.

Oh, did I mention the "free" e-brake assembly I sent you cost $1,000 in shipping? You said you'd pick up the shipping costs...

But seriously, good luck and have a nice trip. Don't take any wooden nickels.

Re: Gone for 9 days

My friend.. if this works right, I'll fly all of you into Tampa for a big ole party! That should cover the shipping costs.

I wish I could say the song was about Jeeps. Alas, the song is completely contrary to my conservative nature. It's like 180 degrees different. I did it for the money. My partner came to me and said, "This idea will make us money, let's write the song." I was shocked. But it's sold very well and it's on the radio every couple of hours down here.

BTW-- I'm still willing to take care of those costs for you! Just let me know.. not sure about sending 1 large, but we can work something out.

Re: Gone for 9 days

No, I was just kidding about the shipping, not enough to worry about.

So is the song something I would have heard up here? Is it redneck? Does the guys' girl comes back, dog lives, he wins the lottery, and still gets to keep his truck. Ooops, that would only happen if a Country song were played backwards, sorry. So c'mon, fill us in a little dude. Iah never know'd anyone famus b'fore.

Re: Gone for 9 days

Well... Ok.. the name of the song is "I Do Both Jay and Jane", sung by LaRissa, the single we put out is a techno track. The song's about a bisexual woman and her feelings about both her separate gender mates. LIke I said, it's totally contrary to my beliefs, but it's bringing in the cash and it's opened some doors for me. The album I'm going to go talk to the record guys about is going to be an R&B type production along the lines of Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey. Hopefully it won't be as controversial as the current song, but I won't know till next week.

Maybe I'll be winning an award next year!
