a publicist who would like to use your interview or show review in
a press kit, may I use it in my artists' press kit?

really like the writing on MusicFrisk.Com and I know of publications
that would like to publish your writing on an ad hoc basis, will you
have the editor of that publication contact
with a one-time or long-term proposal. Just don't tell them we intend
to take them over someday yet, OK? ;) Thanks.
really, really like MusicFrisk.Com, and I feel generous, can I send
you a million dollars?
some careful consideration, we think this would be an extremely
wise thing for you to do! We can assist you arranging a drop off
point or Fed Ex address for large unmarked bills or Paypal instructions.
It would be best if more than one of you did this as we could upgrade
the site and eventually take over media empires through leveraged
buyouts. Thank you for your support!

How can I help you cover my artists better?
Here's a Top 10 list!!!
10) Please do not send advance CD's that are altered with chanting tribesman,
random noise or "property of" statements spoken in Arabic accents, these will not be listened to.
9) Please always include your business card in the press kit, nothing is worse than listening
to a great CD, wanting to interview them next time they come to town and having no clue who sent it to you!
8) If you sent a CD without the final artwork, please send one
with it eventually, some of the best questions I've ever asked have
come from CD inserts and I feel literally blind without the final CD inserts.
7) Fed Ex and Airborne are preferred methods of shipment. UPS tends
to be extremely unreliable at my present address. Please always send press kits no signature required,
please remember that you are sending a CD, not the original version
of the Declaration of Independence!
6) Things like laminated credentials (they are nice collectibles), VIP viewing areas
and unofficial after show activities are always genuinely appreciated.
5) Tickets sent in advance for shows are always appreciated,
especially when the venue is large or not close by as it reduces stress
and saves time when arriving at the venue. This is because guest list
ticket snafus, while often not your fault directly, all too often
happen. Ideally tickets should be sent and the VIP and Photo passes
should be left at the will call window, especially at a large venue
show. It solves the biggest uncertainty regarding attending the event.
4) A set list from the tour manager delivered before the show does
wonders for highlighting a band's newer songs, which is what you are
trying to push! So please have the tour manager always provide a set
list! And be sure to include his or her cell phone number!
3) Please always be sure the guest list is properly turned in as promised! Guest list omissions
and wasted time can lead to undesirable outcomes, including not being able to write about an artist
at all. Worse, it's a waste of your valuable time setting it up and is also quite embarrassing to everyone!
2) Interviews conducted right after sound check almost always sound better, artists
are in their groove and sometimes seeing a sound check changes the whole
direction of an interview. When I'm available early, this is desirable!
1) Please always tell the tour manager who MusicFrisk.Com is and why
we will be there, confirming our guest list credentials have been turned
in, this prevents embarrassing situations like "who are you?" and standing
outside during the show at a venue where cell phones don't work inside!
It also prevents #2,3,4 and 5 quite nicely. :)
