My Replacement

Steve Garfield (from SteveGarfield.com) sent me this video last night. This is the funniest spoof of me ever, by far! Love it!! I hope she gets the job.

    Ha, good one. I like the paper throwing...

    That map looks like it takes longer to make than to go down to the drug store and buy.

    Yeah, the map is the best. "Canada?"

    Sorry that you've been outdone, Amanda.

    I am sorry you won't be "the Face" the new face will be different. I think Boom will fizzle but I'll probably never know. Hope you keeps us up on what's going on and what your new venue is.
    your faithful watcher,

    Hey there Manda :) Good to see that you're trying to have good humor about the whole situation. I hope all works out and it doesn't get too ugly between the two of you. Anyway, posted about this on my vodcast (Teh Intarwebs) and really hope the best for you.

    Good luck in everything you do!

    Well, It's great to see Steve G. on the right side of the issue. Today I wrote Rocketboom that their (Andrew's) posting was way out of line with what I understood was Amanda's role on the show and her future and that "thousands and thousands" of us will want her and Andrew to work out a compromise rather than see a new face. I don't think there is any doubt about this. Stay close to us, Amanda. (thanks, Steve G.)

    You are loved. And the most inspiring thing I ever saw you do was the private message to Jordan. That moved me.

    As a former faithful viewer of rocketboom, that cracked me up. Oh, I'm sure you've noticed, but you're now the frontpage of the tech section on cnn.com.

    Seriously:
    I anticipate Monday 07/10 because i already feel really really bad for whomever tries to fill your shoes.

    Hating her already.

    This was just an OKAY parady because you never seemed that vain to me.

    Hello Amanda, in case you change your plan for LA, please consider to come in Italy and work with us... at least for a while...

    Here's the (maybe real) last news: the new face we'll see on Rocketboom could be MTV Europe's girl Joanna Colan.

    here's a link to the article:

  • At 8:25 AM, Blogger justjeff said…

    My guess for "replacement" would be Cali Lewis.

     
  • At 5:43 PM, Blogger Brian G said…

    I don't recall ever seeing rocketboom before this weekend past, but, I decided to watch as many as I could. I think I may have seen most of them. It was wonderful to see you grow into rocketboom. I wish you well and hope you come back again. I'll watch and listen.

    Amanda we miss you, good luck to you and best wishes for your future.

     
  • At 6:08 PM, Blogger Shafiq said…

    That was sooo funny.
    I only really got into rocketboom about a week and half before you left, Amanda, and was really getting into it when the disagreement between you and Andrew happened.
    Since then I've been following it as closely as I could, and have been apprehensive about a replacement filling your shoes, as I would say, and most people here would agree: You ARE RocketBoom.

    With that said, though, I am finding it slightly disturbing watching the new RocketBoom, with Joanne Colan. I have to say that I actually feel kind of dirty, because I feel like I'm betraying you, but I watch it because if I didn't, I would somehow be disloyal to the British, seeing as both Joanne, and I, are British.

    On that note, I hope you all the best for the future, I hope that you ride the wave that has been the sudden loss of you from RocketBoom, because as they say: When one door closes, another one opens.

    Prove to us the power of this proverb, Amanda. We believe in you. :)
    Shafiq.

    Someone please tell me the name of the synth-pop-tronica music the faux-Amanda is dancing to. I must have it.
