Subject: Help me get 'exposure' for e-sex song?
From: YorkshireYankee
Date: 16 Jun 11 - 02:31 PM

Hi Folks,

As I was reviewing the info for my track on the Mudcat Sampler today, it suddenly hit me that the song what I wrote back in 1995 is newly topical,
what with that nice Mr Weiner getting himself into so much trouble recently (and stepping down today).

The song is called "e-mail He-mail", and is a 12-bar-blues about a rather racy e-relationship.

I was thinking that there might be radio stations/programmes (in the US & maybe even in the UK) where there would be a possibility of airplay.
Who knows, it might even result in additional interest in the Mudcat Sampler...

If anyone has radio contacts and/or other useful suggestions, I am all ears...

Many thanks,

Vikki/YY

Here's an idea: Put the song on YouTube, accompanied by a montage of Weiner pictures!

oldhippie, thanks!

Michael, good idea, but I'm going crazy with getting ready to leave for the US (for 2 months, to visit my family) in less than a week, and I've never uploaded anything to YouTube before, let alone put together a video montage -- I think it would be biting off more than I can chew at the moment. The timing is unfortunate; I wish I'd realised a bit sooner! Thank you anyway...

For anyone interested, here are the words:

=================================

e-mail He-male
(©1995 Vikki Appleton)

I got me an e-mail he-male... cruisin' on the internet
I got me an e-mail he-male... usin' on the internet
Well the man can push my buttons... even though we haven't met.

Now I never seen his hardware, but I really could not care
And he cannot touch my software... sister, ask me if I care
'Cause he can turn me on... even though he isn't there.

Well I know he's user-friendly... he can tell me what to do
Honey, he's a friendly user... knows exactly what to do
And I don't know how he does it, but I'm smilin' when he's through!

Bridge:
    Well, the man knows how to send me... he's got a magic hand
    When I open up my mailbox, I just come at his command
    Oh, I love to see him upload... he don't ever need no rest
    'Cause the guy ain't got a floppy... yes, his hard drive is the best.

So I get my satisfaction... from a man I do not know
Yes, I get some satisfaction, honey... from a man I'll never know
'Cause cyberluv is better, baby -- it's the only way go
'Cause cyberluv is safer, honey! It's the way to... come and go!

===============

Interestingly, I wrote e-mail He-male in 1995. A few years later, I met the man who is now my husband -- online (much to my surprise). Thus did life imitate art imitating life, and I ended up moving to Sheffield (from the Detroit area).

If you send me an mp3 of the song I'll look up some Weiner pictures and put it together then shove it on YouTube if you like.(with your approval first, of course).

Anything that could help the 'cat.

Just a thought!

Vikki,
    You could have a release party in eCorse. (For everyone else: Ecorse is a real town in Michigan.)

wilbyhb: Wow! Really? You could/would do that? Amazing! I would love to take you up on that offer!
If you PM me with your @ddress, I'll send it off to you tonight.

Marty/CB: "eCorse", eh? Ver e-Cute! (and thanks for the kind words.)

Desi C: Thanks for your kind words, as well.

P.S.
Marty, my apologies; have been meaning to reply to your lovely PM
for ages, but I am one of the great procrastinators of all time and
haven't got 'round to doing so yet. (It is still on the "to do" list, FWIW.)



Somebody, give me a "round tu-it", please!

whb and I have been e-mailing one another (no, not like that, so please wipe those lewd grins off your faces right now!), and there is some concern that what with all the Twitter & FaceBook controversy at the moment, a YouTube clip like that might attract a lawsuit.

It seems someone has already done something similar (sort of); check out Anthony Wiener Funny or Die Exclusive Music Video "Bye, Bye Capitol Hill!" (it's dreadful, but that's really beside the point) and (to a lesser extent) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/16/weiner-jokes-obituary_n_878256.html, but would we be tempting fate?

Perhaps Richard Bridge could advise us...

John -- just (finally!) had a chance to see it -- nice job! some really cute images, and the timing of the images & the music is really good. I also really like the way the images pixelate during the transition from one image to another -- very appropriate!

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you before, but have been offline for almost a week due to: flying to the US, a missed flight/extra day in Amsterdam (due to an airport Security "alert"), tracking down missing baggage, jet lag and a family gathering...

Am staying with my folks at the moment & just showed it to my dad, who really enjoyed it.

I see it's had 79 views (mostly fellow 'catters, I suspect) so far; I guess we'll see how it fares (it's unlikely to "go viral" at this point, but it prolly wasn't ever going to, anyway... maybe if it had occurred to me when the Weiner story first broke -- instead of on the day he resigned -- the timing would have been better). I'll definitely send the URL to some friends, though.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to put this together for me and for Mudcat -- it was extremely good of you!
