    * Experience with other magazines is no disadvantage

    * The chance to write for an internationally acclaimed magazine that averages at around 10,000 visits and more than 145,000 pageviews (the amount of pages that are getting visited) a day

    Please keep in mind that it is not as easy as some might think to write fair reviews on a constant basis, also with deadlines and all, especially as there also will be CDs that are just plain bad or simply mediocre, but still require as much attention as others...

  • I've thought about what it would be like to be a reviewer, but I've come to the conclusion that I most likely wouldn't make a very good one. :D First there's the fact that I often fall asleep, even while listening to CDs, so it would require a lot of time and attention to even just LISTEN to the album. And then if I'd have to write a review on it, it would require even more attention from me. Plus, I usually suck at explaining what I think about things in a good way. It's like "yeah, it's good, but not THAT good" etc.

    So, don't hire me!

    The most pointless war in history needs to be stopped. So join and stuff.

    i like writing reviews also :) lately i've been more focused on gigs, you can take a look here if you want.

    those are the last two gigs i went... well, actually i went to see red sparowes a couple of weeks ago, but i know too little about post-rock to write something coherent... hehe.
