I have a problem. I cannot figure out if this website is a joke or not.

http://marissamarchant.com


chekc out her Music page. And do not click any webshop URLs. You can end up owing here like 2000 USD or something.

I found this site after reading a post on the BEM list:


Quote:

None of you people have any idea whatsoever abt marketing & selling yr
music. The proof for this outlandish statement is to be found within
the web pages of the new york singer songwriter marissa marchant:

http://marissamarchant.com/

You think antiorp had a hardass 't00d w/r/t selling her stuff online?
Check the "music" & "gigs" page!! (Be careful where you click, you might
have to send her half a grand or something)

Laughing Hey, THANKS man! I don't know if it's meant as a joke either, but I laughed out loud - something Badgers seldom do. Wot a brilliant piece of hype... or sarcasm.

By the way, anyone can feel free to send me donations as well. Wink

Good suggestion, Carlo. I wrote to her manager and passed a link to this topic. I don't know if we'll get a response. From Marissa's gigs page:
Quote:
The following is not a joke....Eres is not receiving letters from anyone who has not purchased a cd or made a donation of some kind. If you want to supports the arts, then Eres will respond. If not, he doesn't have time to read letters.

I support the arts, more than I support my family.

As for charging $1000 for a CD. Why not, she just has to sell one and she covers most of the cost right there.

She has a nice voice, I think.

She can come play my Steinway anytime she wants...

That was fast. I just got this back from Eres, the manager:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well thank you sweety.
But Marissa is so busy right now, that she can't spend that much time on the net. But I will keep the link for her.
Sincerely, Eres J. Garcia

Would you please pass this along to her. She can find the discussion at

Well, sweeties, I'm WAY too busy to spend much time on the net, but that's never stopped me. Laughing

I dunno, maybe you should charge her for the time you spent sending off that email... before you get a bill for their response! Wink

Shocked

Quote:
I am extremely upset. I don't want to call these people first. No one has the right to copy my website and music without my permission and use my name falsely on the net.
I am being excessively harassed by some people on the net.
I had a site called Marissa Marchant, this is not my legal birth name. I am an artist. I passingly said I was selling cds for 1000 dollars as a joke. someone made a big thing about it, put up a false interview..and made it look real. I was never selling cd's for 1000.
they spread these lies all over the net and someone put an article in the San Fransico Weekly and another newspaper in Cleveland ..Sf Weekly is owned by News Times. They put a false newspaper article about my 1000 dollar cd..when I am selling my cd's for 20 dollars.

anyway, my point. My artist name is Maerisza Sabrael...a name I thought was too difficult for people to remember...
They since then archived my old website without my permission. this is a copyrighted website. My music is copyrighted as well. You can not duplicate someone's site.
..and you can't copy it without someone's permission.

I have contacted lawyers.

I advise you to take down the Marissa Marchant archive unless you want legal trouble.

My song For You is called Take My Life and copyrighted under my legal name.

Wikipedia wrote a false biography about me.

wikipedia Marissa Marchant where they make up one lie after another.
I have never sold a cd for 1000 dollars.

I have the right to change my site and do what I wish with my website. No one has the right to take what I own and defame people.

If you don't remove this site from your website..I will also get involved with forcing you to take it off legally.
go to my site if you wish to contact me.

Looks like her little joke got her a lot of attention. Maybe not the kind of attention she wanted, but didn't someone say, "any publicity is good publicity"? I think that was the mayor of Allentown... Laughing

howdy sweeties,

calling yourself merchant instead of sabrael (so much easier to remember, right?), joking about 1000 $ cds, mentioning that you won't talk to people unless they shell out some dough, and the reply howard got,
how can people not see that she is just kidding! Evil or Very Mad

some people, tsts... Rolling Eyes


best regards

I dunno, the world is still full of extrovert comedians like Pol Pot and Josef Stalin. Ordinary people like us simply won´t understand humour.

Where a mighty website once stood, now there is just an unreachable url. sleeping And it is OUR FAULT!
I am sure I speak for many in saying that the loss of Marchant's website is a tremendous blow to us all. beer

The best we can do is to hang together and deal with the setback as best as we can.

party time!

For those who desire one-on-one counseling to deal with the emotional trauma I am setting up a 1-900 hotline, and for $495.95 per minute, I will be happy to discuss this or any other issue.
