E-Mail Glitchination

My primary mail account seems not to be accepting incoming e-mail and has not been for the last 90 minutes or so, so if you sent me mail in that time I haven’t gotten it. I’m looking into it now.

Update 2:26: They’re propogating a fix; it may take up to an hour for it to work into the system. To be on the safe side, don’t send me e-mail until about 4pm.

In the meantime, your hold music:

Update 4:07: Okay, looks like I’m getting mail again.

  1. Great tune, but, man. That clip must be from Brazilian Idol: Possum in the Headlights Special.

    I once dealt with a web hosting company that had “The Blue Danube”* as its customer service hold music. I always had to listen to it all the way through (it’s 18 min. long) — twice. The first time through I would just imagine the docking sequence from 2001. The second time I’d get increasingly pissed, but refuse to give up. Motivated me for takin’ care of bidness, knowhatimean?

    * Yeah, yeah. It’s purple now. Hah, hah.

  2. It makes me sad that this song is so strongly associated with elevator music–those are some world-class musicians with a near-perfect performance of a great song.

    Astrud’s singing always did have a strange lack of affect, though, and I’m sort of happy to see that she looks almost exactly how she sounds.

  3. Jeff G @2: Not just any elevator, though. The elevator taking Jake and Elwood to the Cook County Assessor’s office, so it’s still cool…

  4. @#4: But that was a dopey instrumental version, comparable to the “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” cafeteria muzak in “Fargo”.

  5. Well, the composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim, has the Rio de Janeiro airport named for him. How many other major airports are named for composers?
