John Hodgman in BBtv’s SPAMasterpiece Theater, Vol II: “Wuthering Wire Transfers.”

Today on Boing Boing tv, we continue our SPAMasterpiece Theater series, featuring author, PC, and minor television personality John Hodgman, whose new book, MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE launches next week.

Hodgman himself describes this series as the dramatization of “true tale[s] of romance, adventure, infamy, and low-cost prescription drugs, all culled from the reams of actual, unsolicited emails, received here by us and people like you — what we call SPAM.”

Today’s installment: Barrister Abbey and Diana Khan in “Wuthering Wire Transfers,” a tempting tale of financial transactions and naked lust that requires your soonest response.

A note from our musical director: The adaptation of Jean-Joseph Mouret‘s “Rondeau: Fanfare” (1735) which opens today’s episode was remixed in flagrante 8-bit by Hamhocks Buttermilk Johnson.

    So we know about the intro music. What about the lovely waltz that the segment closes with? Name? Composer? Orchestra? Please! and Thank You!
