I am getting loads of emails.
I know why – I had registered a couple [hah!] of domains and sadly my email address is not only mandatory but is publicly visible. As a result all those spamming cunts out there think I need web designers or Photoshoppers. I know it is a simple job to keep the email address private, but it’s a cost that adds up.
Lately however I have been inundated with mails demanding that I have an “explainer” video. I looked that word up and there is no such word. Yet another mangling of the language. Sigh!
Now I gather from these mails that and “explainer” video is a video explaining what my site is about. What the fuck? If a website needs a video to explain what it’s about then in my book it’s a fucking crap website. Yet these people think that it is absolutely essential or else no one will have a clue what the site is about, and will bugger off to some other site that does have a video. I suppose the people who are sending these mails have been raised in a period where the television replaces Mammy so life has to be explained to them with cute little cartoons? Life according to SpongeBob. How fucking sad.
It’s an interesting thought though. If I were to try to make a video explaining this sites theme, what would I put in it? The mind boggles.
I am almost intrigued enough to ask them to make one.
Almost, but not quite.
