Here’s what happens when you’re irresponsible and run your own site:
You think about how you can get free shit out of it like shows so you write to a bunch of publicists, you get on their lists, you end up at shows, you take awesome pictures, they send you awesome music, you make awesome posts and the next thing you know, you’re asking, “Well, how did we get here?”
For over a year we’ve been working with some hard working bands and management who have been so helpful and kind to us but on August 26, 2011, we’re shutting down the doors on the majority of our site to hone some focus in and around literature and photography — just like we did in the beginning and let sites like Pitchfork and Fader do what they do best. We will continue to work with music but in a different capacity altogether. More on that later. Since we’ll be stripped down to our bare bones, the look will change slightly.
The good news is that we want to see your poetry. We want your short stories. We want all the stuff that you don’t want anyone else to read, including publishers. We want the work that is on the outside of everything but so inside, know what we mean? More on this as time passes along…
OH! AND THE OTHER GOOD NEWS IS…EveryNightIsHalloween.net will be arriving shortly. This is a WD offshoot that you can not miss…especially if you can’t get enough of Halloween month.
Anyway, we’d like to thank all of the bands, artists, publicists and everyone else who have been super helpful this last year.
We’ll post some more info about Alexis Guerra’s Fashion Likes/Dislikes a bit closer to the date.
Thanks for everything.
P.S. Don’t forget to submit your stuff!
