What do Caslon, Puccini, and GI Joe have to do with each other?

    Not a damn thing that I can see. But Amazon sees some connection:

    "Dear Amazon.com Customer,

    As someone who has purchased or rated Great Composers - Puccini, you might like to know that G.I. Joe A Real American Hero: The M.A.S.S. Device will be released on September 1, 2009. ... "

    WTF???

    The Great Composer series by the BBC is excellent, btw. Unfortunately, they only did seven episodes. ... icon_cry.gif


    oh,and I am sure there is something in here that will piss somebody off, so let the Caslon bashing begin ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    There has got to be some connection with the movie soundtrack. If not Amazon.com's analytics program is seriously flawed.

    BBC is going to revive the Great Composers series. The next one is going to be the GI Joe soundtrack. icon_lol.gif

    All cultured gay men like opera and hot men. Seems pretty simple to me.

    I'm surprised they didn't also include in the "You may also enjoy' section:
    Cher/Bette Midler CD's
    Damron Guides
    Healthy Recipie books.
    Jura Capresso Espresso machine.
    GinchGonch underwear.

    I think I see a connection, at least in the computer's eyes. Well puccini wrote Madame Butterfly, which is about an American G.I. marrying a japanese girl during the war. See the connection?

    A Caslon bashing wouldn't be complete without a cat pinata!

    Ovation TV also has great documentaries called Discovering Masterpieces or something, watching one on Debussy's La Mer it was very good icon_smile.gif

    That's a puzzlement, Caslon, but glad to hear about the Puccini series icon_biggrin.gif

    I sometimes get gifts for people via Amazon, so I get some strange notifications too. Maybe you ordered some gift?

    I dont think that's it, since they explicitly link the two: "As someone who has purchased or rated Great Composers - Puccini, you might like to know that G.I. Joe A Real American Hero: The M.A.S.S. Device will be released on September 1, 2009. ... "

    I should write them and ask...see what kind of response I get. .... icon_lol.gif

    ok, sent.
