The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

Email Logan!

Yep, I'm stealing from others today. This is from this week's Ask Ausiello.

---
Question:
I was watching last week's Veronica Mars when they showed Logan's e-mail address — gottapes@gmail.com — on screen, and I decided to send off a message. Would you believe he wrote me back in character? Was this a staff member? — Kevin

Ausiello: After receiving your tip, I did what any self-respecting TV sleuth would do: I sent "Logan" an e-mail myself to see if you were telling me the truth or just spewing tall tales between bong hits. Lo and behold, within seconds I received a response from Logan that went like this:

I already have the tapes and destroyed them. If you want to hound someone, why don't you hound Veronica Mars. She can be reached at: upn.com/shows/veronica_mars/

Logan

Cool, eh? Well, the plot thickens. Moments letter, another e-mail came through — this one from Rick Pickett, a graphic designer for Veronica Mars, who proceeded to explain that he "uses these real e-mail accounts… [because] it's easier, and more realistic. I then set up to have a bounce-back message for fans, and there're a lot of them who write to the address. I realized after Episode 21 from last season how dedicated fans were with these details. It's like the whole 867-5309 phenomenon — they will try it out. I figured I'd give them a little excitement for their efforts. I've gotten roughly 80 emails for Logan's e-mail and 50 for Inga. Some play along with the script and what's going on, offering money, favors, etc." Um, only 80 e-mails for Logan? Guys, whaddaya say we add to that total a little bit? Here's that address again, gottapes@gmail.com. Go to it.
