Further Jammin', Albeit No Longer on the One 

The public launch of JamsBio has been shoved back another month, but in exchange, we writers are now permitted to share posts with the unwashed on an email-only basis. So what I'm going to do is create a pseudo-listserv for The Readers, because, let us face it, the only good Kool & the Gang discussion is the kind that is shared.

Kool & the Gang Discussion UPDATE: In the time I typed those two sentences, we broke the email thingie. But the rest of this post still applies, because I simply have this feeling that they'll have it back up again just in time for you.

If you're interested, leave a comment with your say-so, and I'll have my minions pull your addy from the administrator's comment view. In the event you're comment-shy (and I know you're out there, bashful flowers) then send an email to media@drinktothelasses.com with "JamsBio" in the subject line. You'll receive an alert every time a new JamsBio piece is posted, complete with an invitation code which will allow you into the site. No spam, no fuss, just a warm and cozy five minutes with Maurice Starr and the many scars he left behind.

And! Specify, if you please, whether you'd like links to all the past posts, or just the content I will add from this point forward. I am given to understand that a new invitation code is required for each post, so if you would like to see every single thing I've posted there so far, you will find yourself briefly, but extremely, popular with JamsBio.

As I found out about the application deadline eighteen hours before it struck, some of the text was frantically recycled from the original bottle of BlondeChampagne. This is because we were asked to provide ten sample clips, and while I can do a lot on two cups of Peach Attack Tea, there's not enough caffeine in the world, people. Those initial clips were plugged into my baseline JamsBio URL as the great webby-code powers continued to slap up the plaster and install the toilet in the guest bathroom. However, I've banked posts to the point where the content is now largely new.

Obviously, JamsBio is a virtual construction site at the moment; it is the NASDAQ off its Ritalin, up and down again without notice, and people tend to get hit in the head with paint rollers and showered with asbestos every now and then. So if there are glitches, remember, as the widgets come crashing down around us, that I took your hand and gazed soulfully at you and assured you that it's not you... it's them.

It's Not You It's Them UPDATE: The publicity minions are reporting a lot of email, and that's awesome, but many of them don't have "JamsBio" in the subject line, which is somewhat less awesome. So if you're joining the cool kids via email, please subject up, as this helps differentiate your much-cherished emails from other media requests, wheelin'-dealin' with clients, and suggestions from highly legitimate drug companies that my male genitalia is too small.

[...] I’d still rank it somewhat below the Incident of the Mormon Lolita Prom Dress.)  Apparently the public launch hasn’t been shoved back, and never was; the site is indeed going mega-live on March 31.  I was wrong, and I am sorry, and [...]

Yaaaay JamsBio! I would like as much content as the publicity minions will give me for no money!
