Mailbag: What is wrong with you!?We introduce a new segment on the Mailbag, especially for those people who write the really, really crazy e-mails. You know who you are.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hey everybody, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag. This is the show where we take your feedback about the stuff we do here at CNET. And our first e-mail is actually a good lead in to today's show. Scott writes, "Is Mailbag still on? It has been about a month since one has come out. It usually comes out Tuesday and it is Thursday." Scott and everyone, I'm sorry we've been gone so long. See, there was this writer's strike. No, I'm just kidding, but we actually work kind of in reruns over the Christmas break and then we were in Vegas at CES. I'm really sorry, we really missed you. So, let's get to the mail. We got a postcard. And it's even typed. Roberto from Portland wants to know if we can make it easier to find the free downloads at music.download.com. He says, "Would you consider having a page where all of the free available songs can be accessed, without having to jump around to find the free music?" Well Roberto, I think that's a good idea and I'll suggest it, but in the meantime, here are two pages that might make it easier for you to round up the free downloads. Now, at the bottom of the page, where you'll find the iPod Starter Kit, which is hand-picked downloads from our editors. And then we have this Indie To Go playlists of which there are twelve and they are all downloadable music too. I hope that helps. And did the rest of you know that you can stream tons of music for free and download quite a bit of it over at music.download.com? I know, it's awesome, go there. Okay, now this week I'm introducing a new segment on the Mailbag that I'm calling, What Is Wrong With You? See, sometimes I could [inaudible] e-mails and they are just too crazy. And I don't want to encourage these e-mails, but I also kind of want you, the viewers to see what kind of stuff we get here. This week's we-we may come from Lap [presumed spelling] who starts off "Dear light of my life," And then it goes on very sweetly to say that he's smitten with my sense of humor and my big horse teeth. And he says, for example, "You look way better now that you're a mother than a couple of years ago when you were fat, had ugly hair and were totally awkward in front of a camera." And also, he says, "You need to show some more skin on the Buzz. Maybe bikini shots on the beach or something like that." And then there's a lot more and it's really weird and seriously, Lap? What is wrong with you? Is that the kind of thing that would ever work on any woman, ever? Really, ever? Just don't do that again Lap. For crying out loud! Okay, that's it for this week's edition of the CNET Mailbag. Keep the feedback coming firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a postcard, 235 Second Street, San Francisco CA 94105. See you next time. ^M00:02:30 [ Music ]
