I am delighted to announce that on Monday I will be promoting the new music promotion and networking website Numubu.com.
The site has a cleaner interface than MySpace and it is specifically targeted to music creators and new music listeners. There are many promotional tools that NuMuBu offers, including a portal to sell your MP3s for free.
I remember MP3.com from like ten years ago. I actually had a song I composed on it under Aimeeember (My logo was what I thought was a clever æ). But the site changed and shut down old artist accounts in 2003... Looks like NuMuBu can take off in its place!
If only I could find the song I composed... I'll look later.

There have been more e-mails from HandsOFF. Turns out, he's not just a self-pleasurer, but a NIHILIST:
Good Day Aimee,
Firstly, I must say, I never asked you to prostitute yourself. The
$200 was offered as a gift of gratitude if you had accepted my offer.
Secondly, if you feel like a prostitute because I have offered you
money in return for this favor, then, by God, money does not have to
be a factor (lol, just a little sick humor). That was just an act of
kindness on my behalf. Now I must quote your "horrifying mental images
of a stranger pleasuring himself". You tell me what is more
horrifying! A kind stranger who offers you some money for a simple
visual pleasure or a model promoting a brand like DISNEY, GAP, NIKE,
MCDONALD'S ETC ETC. Let's take Disney for example, a company that
utilizes sweat shops with young children working for pennies and then
turning around and selling a sweatshirt that cost them 19 cents for
$26. Now that is horrifying!!! Didn't you say you were a model???
ooops! So you are promoting brands from companies that are
horrifying, quite the paradox. How does that not violate your moral
principals??? Furthermore, you feel that it would be more ethical if I
spent $200 on a girl and then coaxed her into watching me. WOW!!! How
conniving, manipulative and dishonest. I am an honest individual just
seeking some honest fun with no strings attached, that's all. Don't
get me wrong, I totally respect the way you feel about this and
completely understand your position, but I gave you my little analogy
just to demonstrate to you that if you look real close at everything
in this world, you will always find some underlying horror, lurking in
the background, somewhere. Anyhow, everything is an illusion and all
has a beginning and an end so I just want to have my sporadic moments
of entertainment once in awhile, that's all.

The horror he is talking about is his hand, which is always in his
pants. So I don't really have a choice but to accept his logic.
Bombing on CNN?
Two children missing?
Your mother's birthday?

In other offers:
Someone e-mailed me asking if I would hang out with him for a couple of hours and go clubbing for $140 bucks. Again, I am hesitant. If the dude is nice, well, sure I'll interview him and document our evening for that rate... but... does hanging out count as work?
A grafitti artist also asked me to promote him and his collective. I'm writing him back later today.
And I may be teaching an artist Photoshop for a couple hours for $100.
