Open Letter to Johnny Depp

Hi Johnny, how are you?

I remember that a decade or something ago you were setting up some sort of publishing company for obscure books. And i though like, okay, that’s me, obscure books, but as it goes it’s impossible to get in touch with celebrities, so I could never reach you, which is exactly what made your life into living hell,
because you do need the obscure books guy.

When I saw that court thing with the blonde, I thought just one thing. Can you guess what? Oh hell I don’t wanna patronize you. Let me just hand you my book for free. If you like it and you think
I am the obscure guy, get in touch. I am not a celebrity and it won’t be hard.

Thank you, my dear friend. The book can be downloaded here:
