Hello, I was wondering if there was anyone who would be interested in occassionally writing music reviews for the site? It could be old or new releases, and the only requirements that I would like to have is that the reviewer is passionate about music and they can write fairly well.

I could maybe do some and see if this is something that some other people would be interested in helping out with. Your work will be completely be your own, and BRY would stand behind your review.

Maybe if there is enough interest and enough people doing it, we could publish like one a week. Anyway if this is a dumb idea I understand, there are plenty of blog sites that do the same thing, I just know I would like to make a stab at it personally. And these kinds of things are good content for a website to have if it is going to succeed.

It's probably a dumb idea, but I'm absolutely in for contributing and would be in for doing some copy editing as well.

I would like to write about music for BRY. I failed grade 12 English twice but I'd like to think I've come a long way since then.

Wow that is awesome, guys....okay, maybe think about something you would like to review, or just get started on it whenever you feel like it and have the time. I am trying to get some things cleaned up and the main page restored, maybe this could be a new feature we implement soon.

Let me know when you start working on the concert database again...theres some items I'd like to change for data input purposes...

Did you know the PJ20 book credited BRY for tour info? I thought that was neat.

Me and you are going to overhaul and make the whole thing better and more user friendly. When we are done, people will be able to upload images to anything, and I am going to use AJAX more so that entering information into it will be much easier to do.

Allen is this something that might expand to other media like movies, TV, or books?   I'd be interested in doing movies if so.

That is if you pay for tickets, popcorn, and hold me during the scary parts.
