View Full Version : This made my day

I got an email today which I'd like to share with everyone. It's anonymous, so netiquette police need not be concerned.

It's pretty rare for me to get hate email. Nothing nasty mind you. But this person felt compelled to express their dissatisfaction with the online portion of my diary. Here's the email, followed by my official public response:

"Hi, I found the diary exhausting to read and made me depressed. I am not fond of your attitude to mock people, call them names etc, you need to get a life."

Indeed!

Enjoy,

Mixerman

"Hi, I found the diary exhausting to read and made me depressed. I am not fond of your attitude to mock people, call them names etc, you need to get a life."

You forgot the second part:

"It was so exhausting and depressing that I could barely read the entire thing all the way through ... twice. On the third reading I was interrupted at my helpdesk job by someone calling me about a printer jam so I didn't get to finish the diary that time.

I have so much disdain for your attitude to mock people and call them names that I can hardly wait for anymore installments to the diary so that I can continue to look down upon you and your diary."

Made mine too.




"Hi"


Yeah. Hi. What?




"I found the diary exhausting to read and made me depressed"


Yes, and all the while, I find you neither exhausting OR depressing.




"I am not fond of your..."


I am not fond of people who use the word "fond".

Gheylourde.

NTTAWWT. Except when it's you.




"your attitude to mock people, call them names etc..."


Yes, poopypants, that is really mean and bad. Boohoo!

Have you even CONSIDERED visiting the planet Earth circa 2007? Do you fucking live on Walton's Mountain or something? Have you never worked a job (with which almost any will do), where a fundamental portion of the job description is the constant overflowing influx of maddeningly ignorant and/or stupid people?

Do you work in HR?




"you need to get a life"


Yes. I need to get a life.

The proof is your personal email, which you have bestowed upon me, where you clearly indicate that while you could be off doing practically anything that would be found less annoying, you have chosen to spend these few fleeting moments making your well educated perceptions and analysis clear to me concerning the unwavering fact that it is I (and not you) that has been officially deemed to be "without life" and furthermore, that it is thoroughly encouraged by you that I somehow become in possession of one.

Thanks.

Get right on that.

:Roll eyes:

Crunch is running the helpdesk today. Anyone else need some copius amounts of my thoughfully acidic wit and charm today? Step right up...

I promise not to post in the Unsigned Music Madness.

Not a good day.

In light of the above Crunch response, my "indeed" seems wholly inadequate.

NOW I'm depressed. Thanks a lot asshole.

Yer probably childish, but I'm in the same boat.

A couple years ago I went to conference in Orlando, FL. The event was held at, I shit you not, a beautiful 5 star resort called:








...wait for it....








Gaylord Palms (http://www.gaylordpalms.com)

A worse name for a hotel simply doesn't exist. I spent a week laughing at signs, ashtrays, towels, gift bags, uniforms, etc.

Apparently there's a chain of Gaylord resorts all over the United States.

Who knew?

Oh, and back on topic....

I figure the goal of any artform is to elicit some kind of emotional response. If this tool bothered to write you about his/her disdain for your writing style, then I'd say you've succeeded. You got an emotional response.

And, at the end of the day, it means someone read it. :)

Cheers,

Dave

Well, he sent me another email! This is it in it's entirety. It seems you hit a nerve Crunch. He quoted you. This is the reply email in it's entirety, followed by my public response.


Dear Mixerman,

The proof is your personal email, which you have bestowed upon me, where you clearly indicate that while you could be off doing practically anything that would be found less annoying, you have chosen to spend these few fleeting moments making your well educated perceptions and analysis clear to me concerning the unwavering fact that it is I (and not you) that has been officially deemed to be "without life" and furthermore, that it is thoroughly encouraged by you that I somehow become in possession of one.

Thanks.

Honestly, I dont have the inclination or time to read all the insights that you seem to have all the time in the world to write, and want everyone to read, including my letter. Speaking as a professional drummer who can stick to a click,(I'm not defending the drummers who can't) and as a home studio owner, I thought I might get some good insights into how the pros do it, and I really couldn't get pass your smart ass, pathetic attitude towards your clients, it got too much in a very short while. We get the fact that you're the only 'pro' in this story, and all the hostility towards the label signed 'wet behind the ears' musos that you've lowered yourself to deal with. It's not that insightful ! Seriously. I realise you know your shit, and musos can be a pain in the ass at times, especially the crap ones that can't string 3 chords together and yet, write a hit, but dumb ass, dumb as cotton, you really come across as a bit of a tool yourself. For such an intelligent writer, I can't believe you can't see how it cheapens the whole experience of reading your diary, even if you are that shallow and unoriginal, get an editor.

Dumb Ass... is that you?

Enjoy,
