Missed a couple emails this week sent to my ait-planetlar.com address because people were getting cute with their subject lines, so a reminder: I get a lot
of email at that address, and my spam filters out everything with a blank subject line, "No Subject" as the the subject line, stuff like "Hot Asian Porn" and "Check this out :)" and anything with an attachment where we haven't already arranged that you'd be sending me something.

Gimlet," even if you are actually someone I lived with for years in college; "Re: Quit your Job," "Five Dollars of Free Bingo;" or anything with an .exe tag, because, you know, we're Mac-based over here and I couldn't read it even if it wasn't some sort of PC virus.
So if you want me to read an email sent to that address, please be as straightforward as possible. Thanks!

I always like to offer up new artists and industry vets trying new things:
