Okay, if it’s that important to you

The snazzy formatting in the marketing mail
Yes, that’s a numeric IP address where
they have their promo material. Pimp.

Megan Rosenfeld and Crew Creative Advertising want you to know about some movie really badly. So badly that they’re just blasting out half-assed emails to people like me and completely failing to comply with the CAN-SPAM act (specifically they provide no opt-out option or physical mailing address). With fines of $11,000 per offense they must be pretty desperate to promote this movie.

I’m not gonna bother to report them, but I dunno what difference it makes. This is an advertising firm that can’t get a handle on the basics of e-mail marketing law and who send out messages with all the glitz you can see in the screencap above. They may not do enough business to stay afloat long enough for an FTC ruling.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
