Terre T is the most vital disc jockey in America!
Sat. 1/3/09 3:31pm
Wata rules! I like message better than statement though, so I'm still puzzled by why the regular western edition of their LP featured the latter. Well, wading through the Boris discog is a challenge, but few things beat listening to Flood in deserted snowy streets at night, or to Feedbacker in crushing summer heat...
No matter my drivel, happy new year Terre!

Hello Dearest one,
I seek your background before sending you this message please
don't let me down.
How are you this moment? I hope this my mail will reach you in good condition of health, I will really like to have a good relationship with you, and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here and I am Miss.Bella Koro 23years old girl from Ivory Coast, the only daughter of late Dr.Koro Kunda who was the Governor of the Central Bank of Ivory Coast got a problem in the Capital city of Ivory Coast, Coted'ivoire.
I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I, am receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father.Meanwhile I wanted to escape to the Europe but she hide away my international passport and other valuable traveling documents. Luckily she did not discover where I kept my Father's File which contains important documents.
So I decided to run to the refugee camp where I am presently seeking asylum under the United Nations High Commission for the Refugee here in Ivory Coast , Republic of Coted'ivoire . I wish to contact you personally for a long term business relationship and investment assistance in your country.
My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of US$5,600,000.00 in Finance Firm with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the necessary information of the deposit on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund in your country. As you will help me in an investment, and I will like to complete my studies, as I was in my school, when the crisis started.
It is my intention to compensate you with 10% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.
As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely.I am staying at the female hostel. Awaiting your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self please I beg you not to disclose it till I come over , once the fund has been transferred.
I hope my explanation is very clear but if you need further clarification, then send in your questions. I will scan my pic for you on your kind response to my message pls.
From Bella Koro.
