Didn’t Nostradamus say some shit about this being the sign of End Times?
I love getting crazy emails, and since the English are getting soft on me — Pete Doherty, you haven’t been arrested in over a year! — and the Scientologists are laying low since their perpetual membership drive has slid into oblivion during this otherwise dark recession, I am now resorting to publishing one of said emails. A young fellow has begged us to aid his Lady Gaga (real name: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) cause:
Name: Anthony Naccarato
Email: Deleted to protect the not-so-innocent
Date: Wed, May 6, 2009 at 10:31 PM
Subject: Contact: Lady GaGa Request
Message: We’re just writing in regards to a personal goal of our friend to have Lady GaGa make an appearance at his 19th birthday party later on this year.
With almost 13,000 followers on his Twitter page dedicated towards the mission, twitter.com/anthonynacc, it has quickly become the 3rd most popular page in Toronto. His goal has received attention from the top radio station in the city when an announcer had Anthony on his afternoon show to discuss details. In addition, his mission has made it onto seven gossip sites (including articles on two of Lady GaGa’s fan sites) and two personal blogs whose owners are throwing their support behind him.
If you should publish a story about him, please let us know so he’ll not only link to your website on Twitter but also on the corresponding Facebook group aswell. Thank you in advance, and we look forward to hearing from you
Methinks this fellow is rather hilarious for writing about himself in third person, but that’s beside the point. I totally don’t get Lady Gaga’s appeal. No wonder my fag hag card is in danger of being revoked.
UPDATE: The “mission” has sent further correspondence to correct a misconception or two:
We’ve been sending out emails on his behalf, and only using his name simply because this is his mission.
Anthony checked out the post and he loves it! Of course, except for the ‘crazy email’ part.
