Spammers Leave Lagos, Stalk Soho!

The spammers have left Lagos and now they’re stalking Soho! The slightly eccentric first sample I’ve seen of Hollywood-centric email spam.

The Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation was founded as the result of a merger of two entities, Fox Film Corporation founded by William Fox, and Twentieth Century Pictures, founded by Darryl F. Zanuck.

We are pleased to inform you of the result of the just concluded 2010 final draws of 20th Century Fox 100th Anniversary promo. 20th Century Fox 100th anniversary promo was conducted from an exclusive list of e-mail addresses of individual and corporate bodies. The selection process was carried out through random selection in our computerized email selection machine from a database of over 2,500,000 email addresses drawn from all the continents of the world. Emails were provided by the entire register domain.

After this automated online ballot, your e-mail address attached to serial number 09-34-64 drew the lucky numbers 1-23-41-65-0-72, which consequently emerged you as one of first ten (10) lucky winners in the United Kingdom category.

You have therefore been approved for a lump sum pay off of £1,000,000.00(One Million Pounds) in cash credited to file CFX/210/RN100.

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
~ Errol Morris

“As these stories continue to break, in the weeks since women have said they were harassed and abused by Harvey Weinstein, which was not the birth of a movement but an easy and highly visible shorthand for decades of organizing against sexual harassment that preceded this moment, I hope to gain back my time, my work. Lately, though, I have noticed a drift in the discourse from violated rights to violated feelings: the swelled number of reporters on the beat, the burden on each woman’s story to concern a man “important” enough to report on, the detailed accounting of hotel robes and incriminating texts along with a careful description of what was grabbed, who exposed what, and how many times. What I remember most, from “my story” is how small the sex talk felt, almost dull. I did not feel hurt. I had no pain to confess in public. As more stories come out, I like to think that we would also believe a woman who said, for example, that the sight of the penis of the man who promised her work did not wound her, and that the loss she felt was not some loss of herself but of her time, energy, power.”
