Bloody Vikings

I can tell that my effort to generate publicity about my upcoming concert (June 9, 8:30 pm Paris click link for details) is working because I have been getting a lot of attention lately on my podcast, via comments left by spam bots. Yes, the online poker world is abuzz, as are mortgage brokers and those who claim to have cures for male impotence. My concert will be as exciting as texas hold 'em, as . . . (I'm going to stop this train of thought pre-emptively). How much buzz you ask? Over 120 comments since this morning! I've never before been so popular with software agents.

However, I'm annoyed that the software agents are so self-centered. It's as if they never even listened to the mp3s. Plus, I have it on good authority that none of them are planning to, nor are they planning to coming to my concert, so I'm testing the spam blocker Bad Behavior. If it works, I won't need to know where to get cheep (headache) painkillers without a prescription.

P.S. If you understand the significance of the post title, you're a big geek. The first person who can identify it will get comped in to my next show in their region. EDIT: Aside from it's presence on the Bad Behavior page. Why do they reference it and where does it come from?

Vikings like spam (at least according to Monty Python). Vikings are annoying. Junk email is annoying. Thus, it must be sent by Vikings. Since Vikings only like spam, junk email must be spam. QED

Can you get me a flight out to Paris, too? Or will you have a show in Lansing in July? I can make that. (Be we in Paris or in Lansing...)

You win!

If you can't get to Paris, I will likely one day play in the SF area again. Maybe in August.

I kept telling Paul he could win a ticket if he'd just hurry up and comment already. He was sure you'd already gotten ten correct answers. :)

My readership level is pretty low, I think. Or else everybody lurks.

There's always the next exciting contest!
