This makes two in one week (posted in this forum area, but now locked...good times though)...and AGAIN from MySpace.  big_smile

Unfortunately, this one is not a juicy as the last one, but it's somewhat humorous nonetheless.  This time the only censoring is the model's name mentioned. (f**k damn, no swear words)

Keep in mind that I've never met this person (a photographer) and never had ANY contact with him before so I definitely NEVER considered him even an aquantance.

Subject: Excellent work sir.

you take excellent work sir. everytime i look at it, i see something there i didn't see there before. however, this is where our friendship comes to an end. i recently asked ******* to model for me while at the expo. we came to an agreement where i would pay her $75 an hour for three hours work. sometime later, she raised her rates to $125 or so an hour. i believe this was very unprofessional of her to not honor our agreement. i think ******* is very unrealible and unprofessional. since she has chosen to bad mouth me with other models. she certainly has proved me right. every friend of hers is no friend of mine. good day sir.

What is with this week with weirdos and the web? (there's a lot of "w"s in that sentence)  It started off nice with the "sir" parts then went awry towards some funky hell..  Of course, I sent a reply:

Hello,

******* only modeled for me twice and I only consider her to be a wonderful close acquaintance. If she did what you state for no reason, then yes I agree that it is unprofessional...just as unprofessional as the "guilt by association" manner you are handling this matter.  Perhaps she raised her rates because she no longer wished to work with you in response to your changing of the agreed theme?  You both agreed on simple chair bondage to later change it to including a nude male for some terror rape scenes.  I've already heard this prior to your email from another model you attempted this with...who was also going to cancel on you.

From my understanding, this was your first forage into fetish/bondage photography.  Sadly, if a minor situation like this will cause you to become such a dramatic and contact every associates of that person, then perhaps this genre is not for you. Landscape photography, from what I understand was your previous direction, may be better suited fo ryou as it holds much less interaction with humanity. And you could still tie up a bush or two for your personal rape fantasies.

I wish you luck within any endeavor you decide to fully become serious within. And thank you for the wonderful compliment.

Me thinks there was some bad juju thrown my way somewhere... hmm

Nothing exciting happens to me on myspace. Though I met a local guy there which kicked off a string of bad luck with men that I can't get rid of.  I think I wished so hard for love after avoiding men for a (let's just say) long time. That I brought it all upon myself.

Other than that, nada. I use to be a real weirdo magnet too.  I kinda miss it sad  It was quite entertaining.
