Today is my one year anniversary of writing for this blog. Thank you, April, for inviting me to the party and being a fabulous co-blogger, and thank you, NTSIBbers, for reading and commenting and making music and generally being wonderful people.
Also, I figured I should introduce myself, since I didn’t bother with that a year ago. (Whoops!) Hi! I’m Jennifer, and when it comes to music I’m a bit of a magpie. I like things that glitter and shine. I deeply appreciate people who, to paraphrase Brandon Flowers, wear their sequins unironically. I enjoy big drums and dirty bass lines, geeks, novelty songs, and novelty songs about geeks. I also enjoy the roar of the big machine, and my favorite part of nearly any show is when the circle bells out and the center starts to spin.
Mostly what you’ve seen from me so far has been concert photography, and there will be more of that to come. I also have some half-formed ideas/nefarious plans regarding other topics (hint: I have A Lot of Feelings about videos) which I’ll be exploring later this spring.
Finally, in celebration of this first anniversary of mine, I’m doing a special give-away of twelve prints of my pictures that have appeared on NTSIB. Here’s the deal: The first 12 people to email the blog today, April 6, will get one 8×10 print of a picture, of your choice (if you specify which one you want) or of mine (if you don’t.)
Your email should contain the following: Your name; your address; and an indication as to which picture you want, if you have a preference. You can specify as broadly or as narrowly as you would like. Note: International submissions are okay!
To find my pictures: click on the Rock n’ Roll Photog category and look for posts tagged “show reviews”.
