We got yer SMAK VIDEO -- all over the country.... that wacky Smak vid has over 70,000 views on youtube.

San Fernando Valley International Film Festival: Your video rocks, man.  Our board sat there watching it, and were laughing our asses off.  And one of our board said, "You know, we have to show that video, just for the pure fun of shocking the evangelicals that may show up!"

Dear Jay: Congratulations! Your film “Smack Dem Christians Down” has been chosen as an official selection of the 21st Annual Dallas Video Festival, to be held November 6th to 9th at the Angelika Film Center.  With countless competitive entries, your work stands out.

Dear Jay Spears,  Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that your entry, SMACK DEM CHRISTIANS DOWN, has been selected for programming in The 27th Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival, the second oldest LGBT film festival in the world! We appreciate that you entered our festival and look forward to having the opportunity to showcase your work in Chicago.

Meanwhile, back in the past...

And from some live listeners:

Hey there Jay.  Doug here. I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how great I thought you were.  Your lyrics are simultaneously hysterically funny and poignant, a tough feat to pull off.  Plus you're just such a likeable presence onstage. I wish I'd had a chance to hang out longer at the Library. Glad to meet you and I'm sure we'll cross paths again soon. Take care. D

Hey Jay, Great gig at the Pig n' Whistle!  Your live show was, like your CDs, witty and tuneful, highly entertaining no matter what team you're playin' on.  When you sang with such humor and heart about relationships, everyone in the audience--straight, gay, or bi--could relate. Rob, Los Angeles, California

Dear Jay, I listened to your CD, and I gotta say it was awesome.  I really liked your songs last night at the Pig 'N Whistle. It was refreshing to hear another gay folk singing kind of voice out there...I've yet to encounter many others! 'm sure I'll see you at future shows. In the meantime, great work! Sincerely, Jonathan

It was wonderful to see you in person - love your stuff - great wit and attitude. Hope you enjoyed the darker side of Denver for an evening! L

Thanks for coming to Denver, Jay! You are a consumate entertainer and you stuck around for hours after your set, you are a real gentleman. I hope you enjoyed yourself and will come by and say hi at the Merc next time you are in Denver. Thanks again, Nathan
