10/19/05 12:00 am - crystal185 - New Contest!

B>Like Me Real Hard Contest</b>

From asking around one of the songs I noticed almost everybody loves is "Like Me Real Hard". It has the universal appeal like "Let Me Love You", almost everyone can relate to it. This is why we feel that if Mario was to release this single it would be as big a hit, if not bigger, than LMLY.
So, our goal as his number one fans is to get this to be his next single. But we have to start working on it not, before it's too late.


Send an e-mail to J Records and Sanctuary (his management) saying that you want Mario's next single to be "Like Me Real Hard". When sending the e-mail be sure to send a copy to us.

J Records E-mail: info@jrecords.com

Sanctuary (Management): info@sanctuarygroup.com

HBM's E-mail: hbmcontests@gmail.com


The first place winner will receive a $15 gift certificate for Itunes. The second place winner will receive a $10 gift certificate for Itunes. All you need is a valid e-mail address to receive your gift if you win.
I won't need your address, or anything. Just your e-mail address and first name only.

Sample E-mails

Dear J Records,

I love Mario's new CD! But one single that sticks out is "Like Me Real Hard". I think if Mario was to release this single it would become another universal
hit like "Let Me Love You". Thanks for your consideration.

-Your Name

Dear J Records,

Can you release "Like Me Real Hard" as Mario's next single?

-Your Name

Dear J,

I think the next single/video Mario should release is "Like Me Real Hard". I love that song!

-Your Name</b>

The e-mail can pretty much say anything. Just as long as it asks for his next single to be "Like Me Real Hard". The more creative you are, the better. Just
be sure to send the e-mail to J records as well as us to be placed into the contest. If you have various e-mail addresses, you can e-mail them from your
different e-mail's. This will increase your chances of winning.

10/7/05 01:57 am - crystal185 - TRL Clips

If you missed TRL yesterday... I have parts of it. I missed the very first part when I was taping it, sorry. I also taped him on 106 and Park. I don't know when I'll get that up though.

Anyways, I have Windows Media Center and I recorded TRL straight to my computer. Anyone who knows about WMC knows they save everything in this weird format that practically no program supports it. Well, after searching the net I found a program to convert the file to MPEG BUT since it's a trial version it has the program name stamped RIGHT SMACK IN THE MIDDLE of the video's. Anyways, in short... it took me THREE hours to convert and like another hour to edit everything, so I hope you guys enjoiy it.
