The song is a Valentine's Day gift I made for Justique. This year was our seventh Valentine's Day together, so riffing on the lucky number theme I decided to name the song Jackpot because when I met Justique I hit the jackpot!!!
The music starts at about 3:20 into the episode. It's a mellow instrumental funk jam with a slow go-go style drum beat, fat fretless bass, squealy synths, and acoustic guitar. I hope you dig it!
(FYI, be forewarned... AudioShocker conversation is always NSFW!)
Sometimes fortune smiles down upon me and an email meant for another Nick Marino lands in my inbox. Actually, it's not just sometimes... it's all of the time.
I received this gem bright and early on Tuesday morning:
Elliot definitely emailed the wrong Nick Marino. I don't know Will BLANK and I never worked with Christopher BLANK.
In fact, I think I know the Nick Marino that Elliot's trying to reach. I guess I could've told him that he emailed the wrong guy. But where's the fun in that?!?
I guess that is the kind of person Elliot wants working for him because I'm still waiting for a reply. Anyway, congrats on your new job, Chris!!!
P.S. If you're wondering "Did Nick Google Chris's name, find one of his prom photos, and Photoshop Hitler's face onto his lovely date?" the answer is YES.
With all of my past exchanges, I've had to cross my fingers and hope that the weirdo on the other end would actually reply to my latest crazy email. However, I gave up on this conversation with John a couple of times. But he wasn't having it! The guy is a real glutton for punishment.
Here's how it began:
John's SEO shtick was the same old shit that we get over and over at my podcast blog, the AudioShocker. I wrote my response imagining there was no chance in hell "John Locke" would ever reply back. And that's just what I wanted.
But some dreams don't come true.
Not only was John's SEO sales pitch tired crap, but it was also the SAME EXACT PITCH I'd already received back in October. In fact, you can read that preposterous exchange here.
Alright John... game on, mutherfucker!
Now this is where John started to get stalker-ish. Not only did he desperately email me again within 24 hours, but he also called up the AudioShocker comment line and left a voicemail!
*sigh* This guy just doesn't get it. Time to kick things up a notch.
Shit gets even weirder after this because a few hours later John called the comment line again and hung up! But not before he left a confusing two second voicemail. CREEPY! He's seriously turning into a stalker ex-boyfriend.
At this point, I became truly curious. Just how far was John willing to go?
Apparently that last email finally broke John. I don't know why that email did it, but he never replied back. I mean, I was messing with the guy pretty bad the entire time. Why was 1-888-332-BOOBS the final straw?
