I saw Homer’s thread announcing that his CD was finished, and it hit me: There are a slew of musicians on this board, (Monfort, pldennison and idiotboy come to mind, and those are just the guys and gals I met in person) and I am an internationally renowned music critic!
No really… Hey, stop laughing! I’m the poorest writer to have ever been published in three continents…
Anyway, I wanted to contribute to Teemings, and this seemed like a great way for me to do something I’ve been told to be good at (I ain’t no Lester Bangs, but I do what I can) while at the same time helping promote some of the bands made up of the Teeming Million musicians!
If you are in a band or are a solo musician, no matter what kind of music you play (I’ve scribbled about almost every genre of music, a few even somewhat intelligently), I want to review your music in a column for Teemings!
The only real catch (aside from I don’t know how long it’ll take for me to get a bunch of music from the Tuning Millions so when it runs is anyone’s guess) is that you need to send me stuff physically. I am stuck on a dial-up and I don’t have a huge-ass hard drive to put MP3’s, so I am not downloading tunes.
Assuming you can send me your stuff - whether it’s a full-length 15-song masterpiece produced by Trent Reznor and Sean “Puffy” Combs or a live demo cassette - please e-mail me and I’ll send you the submission criteria and my address and stuff. I am at email@example.com, so send me something and please put “Tuning Millions” in the subject line! That’s the working title for the column (other suggestions welcome).
Don’t worry if it’s an older band or something. It’s all for fun. And I can break the news to you that you broke up the next Beatles!
Oh, and lest you think otherwise, I don’t plan on submitting any candy-assed fluffy reviews. I’ll be constructive in any criticisms I may have to make (I’m a professional, you know), but if you suck, I WILL find a way to make that known! Evil laughter
If you’re not scared off by that, get me that e-mail and I’ll hook you up with the info…
