So, I get emails all the time.. Some of it’s spam, some of it involves folks asking questions or leaving comments about the site, or about music in general. All comments and questions are welcome, though, and I’ve met some really cool people that way, too! I always love hearing from folks all across the world, whether they made some songs out of the samples they picked up from Bassadelic, or whether they’d like clarification on something related to music production tutorials, etc, etc, etc.. It’s all good, and I love that there are folks out there who are willing to take the time to write it up!
But then there are those… other types of emails… The ones that aren’t just spam, but the ones that are just so unexpectedly bizarre that I have no idea how to respond.. Well, in some cases, those are the kind that are worth sharing :)
So, I figure I’m just going to post this email in full. Apparently Bassadelic isn’t known as just a music site; it’s also what people (supposedly? but not really…) find on google when they want to buy a TON of candy…
I am contacting you because bassadelic.com appears for the search term
“discount bulk candy”, and I thought you might be interested in knowing
am selling my domain name DiscountBulkCandy.com.
DiscountBulkCandy.com is well suited for your business, and can help
additional customers and give you an advantage over your competitors.
You can easily optimize this domain for search engine pick-up (by
Google etc.) because of its relevant keywords, or just use it to
direct visitors to your existing website. As these types of .coms are
becoming scarcer and more expensive to purchase, they are only growing
I am offering my domain “DiscountBulkCandy.com” at a very good price and
forward to hearing back from you soon if you’re interested.

And to anyone out there reading this: don’t worry, I won’t post anyone’s emails like this normally; I encourage anyone to write to me and say whatever’s on their minds, be it strange, thoughtful, angry, or hilarious…..it’s just that THIS email happened to be bizzare AND spammy, and was clearly sent by someone who has never actually been to the site :)
But that’s not the main point of this post. The REAL big point is: HOLY SNAPPERS!! DISCOUNTBULKCANDY dot com IS FINALLLLLLY AVAILABLE???????????? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
When You Spin a Record, You Might Need an ACTUAL Record, Smirnoff Nerds ;)
Nice try, I guess? Might need a needle or two, too…. And, maybe this is a stretch, but I’d wager that it’s a pretty reasonable accusation that the whole deck probably isn’t even plugged in, either. Though, I could be wrong. Maybe he’s spinning invisi-vinyl!
