What about "I'm Not Just A Freakin' Jazz Shoe With A Bit Of Metal At The End"? ;) or "The Foot Drummer", "Tap - Not That Thing Over Your Sink"?

If I wanted to plagiarise from local studios/companies, "Tap Tap Tap" and "Beats Per Minute".

Foot music? (My sister used to say that she was a musician, she just made music with her feet.)

I agree an interview with a member would be nice and I loved the idea of the tap "glossary". What if we interviewed or did a small feature on a famous/pro tapper as well?

I will run the interviews if you like.

ROFL. Love glitter's first suggestion! Or another of my personal favourites, "If you think it's so easy, you flipping well try sounding and looking as good!"

I'm awful at names, so I'll leave that to you creative peeps.

Do we have access to enough famous/pro tappers to be able to do that? I love the idea, just trying to work out whether it's feasible. I guess if we can't interview, we can just research and do a feature though. I think the pro segment should include links to video clips if at all possible - whether YouTube or whatever.

Yeah - I think a researched article would be fine if we didn't have access to a tapper to interview. That was what I was thinking when I was posting. I probably didn't articulate it well enough.

Either that or I haven't had enough coffee yet ;) It's a holiday weekend, so I'm taking it easy.

Hm, any other content ideas?

I think it would be cool to do the dictionary and member interviews and pro tapper interviews. That would be REALLY cool.

And I would be willing to help :)

I like Glitter's first name idea, too... lol

I've made a poll for the name ideas. Hopefully we can get something decided on. And then we can start putting it together!
*gets excited*

Whee, we have a name! :D

According to the poll, way out in front with 7 votes was "Got Rhythm?"... so that's it.

Who is volunteering to be involved? So far I have seen concrete yesses from me, Helen and blochpointes.

^ That's fine. and about this:

I guess if we can't interview, we can just research and do a feature though. I think the pro segment should include links to video clips if at all possible - whether YouTube or whatever.


I know Renae knows a few people, and I THINK I know some people that I could convince.

Well, I'm happy that it's doable, I was just trying to think of any stumbling blocks in advance. So that's great, we have enough people to draw on.

I'll start a post on the Tap board asking for nominations for people to be interviewed for "Got Rhythm".

Adageace, want to give us a deadline for articles? I've got enough candidates for an interview. Also, I think dangslow would be interested in writing a clogging article.

WEre we going to be PMed something? I thought we were gonna be PMed something. AS of right now, it would be better for me to do member interviews than talking my people into possibly participating or writing an informative article.

Ok, I have PMd people who have volunteered to write for the first issue - Glitter, I know you said you would contribute time permitting, but I know you have uni stuff on for the next couple of weeks so I don't want to pressure you right now; just let me know as and when you have something you want to write.

As for the others, deadline for your contributions (you know what they are) is two weeks from now - I make that 5th June?

Thanks girl. My last assessment is due in June 13th, so I can start writing after that (so 2nd or 3rd edition kind of thing).

I've yet to get anything from anyone. Work's been a bit insane so I've not had chance to chase anyone up - but could you all let me know if you still want to be involved in writing?

Well blochpointes took over my article, so I wasn't writing anything for this first edition. But if I'd known that nobody would actually DO anything, I would have just done it all myself.

*sigh*

I hate delegating.

Yes, I remember - because you hurt your hand and typing was a struggle.

I guess we'll try again. End of July for contributions, and I'll get it up asap afterwards? If Dangslow is still interested in a clogging article, we'll have that and an interview. I'll see what I can put together too. Maybe something funny.
