leaving you guys with a cliffhanger last time huh?
LOL. I got more...
"I CANT SEE
WMVs!! WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!"
...than I ever
have before. First of all, .wmvs work on
EVERY computer including macs. They also load
immediately and all you have to do is click the link
once and it opens in its own window and keeps you on
the page you're reading - and lastly look awesome for
the size. Hard to beat. If you're a mac user, go
If you're a PC user on XP go
And if you have 98 SE, ME or 2000 go
If you're still having problems
PLEASE TELL ME. Videos are absolutely
integral to following The Journey.
So what happened?
Nothing. No email, no response. Love me or hate me,
just don't be indifferent. LOL. But that's most likely
how they feel. Also, the lady probably was sick of
reading emails with 4tvs.com in the subject line. I
resent it today without 4tvs in the title but still -
they have better things to do obviously.
What I didn't
show however in the video was me reading two emails
sent to email@example.com - which is the address
I have the seacrest viewers linked to from the
www.4tvs.com site. Get this:
Hi I just
thought I would let you know that I make all my own
Clay signs, and don't know a soul who ever got one
from a producer. This may happen for other artists,
but NEVER Clay. He has an enormous, enthusiastic
fan base, and does not need any boost for his
I will be
going to two concerts, and I can assure you, if
signs, lights, etc. are allowed in the venue, there
will be an astounding amount for Clay, and they
will all have been brought from home. I have seen
him 3 times in concert, and this was the case at
clears things up. Thanks for reading
Not to be outdone,
We are an
elite group of fans...we make our own signs and tee
speak maybe you should know alittle about Clay and
why we are fans. We watched Clay win his way
through American Idol. He was brilliant. He was
like Rocky Balboa as the underdog. He hit notes and
sang songs like an old pro.
things you should know about Clay Aiken. Did you
know that SNL had it's highest ratings ,the night
Clay was on? Did you know, David Letterman beat
Leno the first time in a year, the night Clay was
on? Did you know that Ed's rating jumped 2 points,
the night Clay was on? Do you know that for a year
Clay was in the top 10 most looked up people on the
Internet? He still on the Lycos top 50 list. Do you
know that Clay sold the most single CD's of anyone
in 2004? Clay fans are organized. We are all ages.
We make signs, Crowns, Flags, Teeshirts and
jewelry. Go to ebay and see how talented we are.
Did you know that Clay has over 1,000 fan sites on
the Internet. We are proud Clay fans and we make
our signs and nobody at any show or event has ever
passed us a sign. We make them
First of all,
here's what I wrote that spawned
"Every sign you
see that says "I love you CLAY" is checked
beforehand before it ever comes close to getting on
the air. Truth be told, the publicists hand most of
them out to people that they already have pre-made.
LOL - how classic is that. I noticed it when the
dude from that 70's show was on, Topher Grace, and
I saw that all the signs looked like the same
handwriting. LOL. Then I saw them putting them down
after the show was over and walking away. Behind
the scenes in Hollywood baby..."
honest-to-GOD truth people. In fact I went down
again today (more later) and I watched the PAs
talk about where they got the MARKERS for the
"I love Camille" signs that they handed out
to the people who were in the outside audience. The
reason? Because a lot of these people who are in the
background are just people who happened by. This is
the corner of one of the biggest tourist destinations
in the world, so they line up to see what happens and
to make the shot look better the crew hands out signs.
Period. LOL. I never said they handed out
"Clay" signs, I said they CHECKED all "I love you
Clay" signs, which is why I can't get a
4tvs.com sign on the air.
But God love
"Clay's Army". I have a lot of respect for Clay,
he has an incredible voice, and it's nice to see a
truly talented "non-manufactured" singer just sing.
It's rare. And as a singer myself, it's simply nice to
see true talent come through. Keep up the good work
So I went down
again today, I had kept the nails up from Tuesday
so I was able to just put the sign back on those
nails. Got up and down without the boutique lady even
seeing me. Ran across the street and proceeded to
watch them specifically avoid the sign at every cut.
So the sign days are now officially over. I've watched
the show shot for shot for weeks now and there is
simply no other way to "guerilla market" the outside
because they simply no longer zoom in to anything that
would be readible. The "Internet Cafe" was truly the
only shot. Everything else is just too far away.
...that's the back
door. And you know what, I was successful in the
back door. Let's review:
The front door is
now swinging open a bit as they're having viewers send
in tapes to be an on-air correspondent. Because of how
I've been able to "sneak in" so far, it might be an
opportunity to make a funny video showing all I've
done to get on, and see if they maybe at least air the
tape. The problem truly is the whole
".com" thing. It's pretty clear that they DONT
want to put that on the air, so bringing that up in my
audition tape might hurt me. Who knows, maybe I'll
make 2 different versions.
At this point,
assuming I get no email back from the producer
I've written - this is pretty much over. I'm better
than these tactics, and anyone who's followed this
knows that I actually have the talent to be
asked onto the show as a celebrity. From comedy
to singing to acting...it's a matter of a few more
connections and the right buzz before that would
happen. So to continue to do this does reek of "second
rate" and to go any further (like scaling the outside
walls of the studio) is just goofy. It's been fun as
hell. I've done exactly what I wanted to - and
I'll put together a little video for them showing
what's happened, and maybe they'll get a kick out of
- back to finishing up Trinitrons 3 (Act 3
is absolutely complete!! Dialogue and
all!!) and I'll have an MTV update in the
next entry. LA baby. Gotta love the
characters you meet in this town. Anyway,
check out the video.
