This issue kinda snuck up on me. I knew I had conducted a couple interviews & not put an issue together yet, but I was surprised to see eight interviews. The interviews go all over the place from bands to magazine editors to comic artists to music directors. Nicholas Slaton is a musician who works in both noise & jazz. Andrew Weathers is a minimalist ambient guitarist. Sarah June does ethereal americana. Northern Valentine do indie ambient. Hotel Hotel are post rockers. Brian John Mitchell runs Silber Records. Melissa Spence Gardner draws mini-comics. Lisa Uber is the music director at WRSU.
I've been thinking lately that maybe I should change the format from being issues to just posting new interviews as soon as they're done. I guess if I am going to do that I need to figure out how to get an RSS feed to work. What's your opinion? Issue style or single articles are of more interest?
I feel like I kinda dug the themed issues a little bit more, so I will be having a few more of those in the near future. Next up will be a guitarist issue followed by another Father's Day one & then touring musicians. I need to remember to just try to get stories interesting to me & just assume they're of interest to others. QRD started almost fifteen years ago with me wanting to read interviews I couldn't find elsewhere & it's time to go back to my roots though what I want to read has changed a bit.
