VS: I know someone that tried to email the email addresses.
DFW: Those were very carefully made up. I learned (my lesson), in Signifying Rappers [a book on Rap co-authored by Wallace and Mark Costello]. We [referred to] some really entertaining voice message on a record company's voice mail. But we couldn't use their number, so we just said "Ah, fuck it" and used our own. Me and Mark, brilliant, rocket scientists at 27. So we got these calls at 3:00 in the morning--''hey, is this Roxbury Records?''
