Hey Brandon -- how about some MeFi musos doing profiles? I'd love to interview Flapjax for example.

Is it print/text only, or multimedia?

I'd say music profiles are great.

We'd like to put something in print, yeah, but that doesn't the interview has to originally done in print. What are you thinking of?

I wasn't thinking very clearly to be honest. I'm in a bit of a crunch at the moment but profiles of MeFiMusos has been something I've wanted to do for a while in a podcast kind of fashion.

Wonderful, Brandon! As regards unSane's comment about wanting to interview me, I'd be thrilled, and yeah, various Mefi musicians interviewing other Mefi musicians could be great!

I've got several ideas for articles or essays or whatever, as well. I'll try to crystallize some of them and see what I can come up with.

Submissions go here.

As a suggestion, if ya'll have particularly good photos of you performing, that would make a good photo essay. Send them to the link above, with captions, and I'll put it together.

A whole collection of live photos from various mefite musicians could be fun, yeah.

I like the music profiles idea, and unSane I think that would be cool as a podcast too actually if you could get an audio interview together or whatever. I'd listen anyway. Aside from the "collaboration" challenge from a while back you typically don't have a great deal of contact with people making music here or hear what they're about, and we've got some pretty talented long-term contributors here who it would be cool to get an idea of their past projects, bands they're in/have been in, performances and stuff.
