    This is just about the craziest way to find out news, if it is in fact true. But some newbie whose email address is jeffatvirgin@aol.com just posted to the VH Yahoogroups list, saying:

    "Don't be so quick to write this band off either. I have a feeling they're
    going to be like Obe-Wan-Kanobe and come back even stronger than they were.

    The label thing is a good thing."


    His email address leads me to believe that he might work at Virgin, which may give this post some credibility. Who the fuck knows. That's all.

    Nope. If his email really was AT virgin, it would be "dipshit@virginrecords.com" or something. Not dipshitatvirgin@aol.com. lol. Big companies dont have to subject their employees to the hell of AOL, and can afford their own outlook servers.

    Yeah right, and then get canned by Virgin for using the companies email.

    He could have done it at home. You know, a personal email?
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    well yes, I know that, but that would be pretty damn lame wouldnt it? And then try to make it look kinda like a virgin email addy?? Why go to that much trouble to look obvious like that. Just looks too dumb to me.

    Hey, could be, just seems like a lamer to me though.

    Hmmm.... You are forgetting that EMI, parent company of Virgin was in negotiations to merge with WEA records (division of Time Warner). Last I heard, this merger was still in the works, which would make Virgin a subsidiary of ...... AOL (once all the legal redtape was completed) Perhaps AOL, in attempts to shamelessly promote itself (which is what they do best) decided it was going to give all of their employees AOL e mail addys??

    The real question is: Would one division of AOL sign them after they were just cut by another division of AOL? That would seem pointless

    That's just it. If he really does know, then he's NOT going to any trouble to do anything. He's just using his regular email address and posting to a VH list. Then again, you could be right. *shrug*

    The fact that he can't spell Obi Wan Kenobi right should have tipped you off to the fact that he was fake.

    Hey guys I work for EMI in thier manufacturing plant and them signing with Virgin would be damn cool. I would see any new product at least a month or so in advance. As for the merger with WB, that was scrapped last year. The European commision that oversees mergers put a stop to it saying the two companies would be to big.
