Looking for New Writers

one man band 706926 Looking for New WritersOne man band courtesy of Spinal Connection

So as you may have noticed I’m pretty much a one man band here. Seg and Tom Jonze are nearly nonexistent, Casi G pops up once a week and Pedestrian has been busy with real world moves trying to post there and their own blog, therefore we are looking for new writers to post regularly on topics we don’t have time or resources to post about. Specific topics include the indie rock scene and someone dedicated to fashion. Current offers include free mp3s, Facebook gifts, Internet high fives, free entry to shows and possibly actual monetary compensation. Please send samples of your work along with preferred topic to 5151List @ GMail . com with the subject “I can has job?” I will totally be cool if I receive no worthy responses knowing the fact that I found such an incredible website.
