@hubbird Eh. A little bit. Thread title is weird and with no real content other than a link I assumed you were a bot and this was spam. That said, being a music freak and a musician I actually am always interested in new indie labels.
"Dear Canadian Singer/Songwriter Andy Shuf, The promotional campaign for your Canadian Singing/Songwriting is coming along great. I have already posted about it in a forum and gotten several offers in response. I'm not going to go into what the offers are just yet because it's just too exciting. But I really know the music business and trust me, stardom is coming your way, baby! Bathtubs full of Cristal and hot chicks, oh yeah! It will be just like that Bret Easton Ellis book I've been meaning to read. You'll be big, baby, bigger than Kon Kan even! Just you wait. Professionally, Hubbird"
I think people happened to miss this part of the writeup:
"On the other hand, if you answered "no" to all of the above questions and you are a professional music producer, let us know where we should send you a copy of our demo. It's like MIA meets Chocolate Starfish-era Limp Bizkit on a Jane's Addiction tip, with a little bit of James Brown thrown in there, only funkier. Please, serious industry requests only. You really need studio headphones to appreciate our sound."
We'll send you our demo as soon as we do some final edits!

@JonT I'll be honest and admit I did until @hubbird mentioned something about it so I went back and re-read and noticed it. I still say it was a very spam-looking thread up until he replied and made me look foolish
@hubbird Do you need any promotional copy for the Andy Shauf campaign? I've written a few totally made up and incorrect facts that would be great for promo materials. A similar promotion worked wonders for my last client, Chuck Norris.
Andy Shauf... ...avoids elementary schools and day care centres, not because he's any sort of offender, but because the kids tend to bully him. ...lives in Saskatchewan because all the other provinces excercised their right of first refusal. ...was once served a mayo sandwich on wheat bread instead of white, he sent it back because he wasn't ready to 'take a walk on the wild side'. ...keeps in close contact with the cafetaria lady from his school, the only person ever to take his lunch money without beating him up first. ...once ran offstage crying after being heckled by Bob Newhart. ...is the only person specifically excepted by name from the Pope's speeches calling for universal tolerance and understanding. ...is proud of his first product endorsement for new Pablum Lite, which is 75% blander than regular Pablum. ...is the only person ever criminally prosecuted for removing the care tag from his own mattress. ...owns the world's largest collection of Eddie Deezen memorabilia. ...once took the long way home to avoid crossing paths with a particularly menacing sparrow.
All the Eddie Deezen hate on this forum can be pretty extreme. Mostly it's just in good fun, but the time we did that Kickstarter to have a tombstone put up in his yard that said "EDDIE DEEZEN'S CAREER" on it was just going way too far.
