some people are so self-absorbed

Flash forward 8 months, I get this friend request on myspace from a band I don't know so I deny it. Then I get a message from the band written by our "friend" saying it's him, accept the request. I do. I get another message from him - not saying congrats or sorry I never got back to you, but saying this:
"How you doing fam? Just wanted to stop by and check you out. As fellow spacers, we wanted to know if you could give us 60 seconds of your time to stop by our page, listen to our music and tell us what you think. We put a lot of our soul into our music so thanks in advance for stopping by and dropping a comment. Don't forget to sign the guest book and leave us a voice comment so we can hear what you're all about. Hope your day is going good and we look forward to meeting with you."
WTF? We could have used 60 seconds of his time to call us back last year. We put a lot of our soul into our wedding, does he care? And he doesn't look forward to meeting with us or he would have by now.
Isn't it just a little wrong to send me this generic marketing ploy without first even attempting to redeem himself? So selfish.

If not, yea, he's a selfish schmuck. I know a lot of people like this- and gotta admit, I'm a pretty selfish person myself.... I'd give him a couple days to follow up with something more personal and if he doesn't, I'd probably call him to the carpet on the fact that he hasn't bothered to make any type of personal contact with you after he was specifically asking you to make effort and accept his invite. I don't know if I'd mention his lack of interest in the wedding tho at first, because he'll just turn around and in his mind think you're the one wanting all the attention....

I mean the stamp is already on the thing. RSVP!!!
I have my myspace set up to not allow bands to request being my friend. It's just a lot of solicitors.

Ask him why he never responded to your wedding emails and phone calls?
That makes me angry.

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
