So, like, when is the Weekly gonna do the whole MySpace thing?
We just did!
It wasn't as easy as it should have been. It turns out some turd had reserved www.myspace.com/tucsonweekly , and would not respond to requests for him/her/it to give the account up. Therefore, the awesome Veronica Bonfiglio asked MySpace to delete the account and give it to us.
MySpace did just that, and last week, we took over the account. Then, another MySpace department--which had also received Veronica's request, and which didn't realize we had already been awarded the account--promptly deleted the account, in an effort to give it to us. Therefore, we had to start all over again.
Anyway, our MySpace page is in its infancy, but watch it for events updates, promotions and all sorts of cool stuff. Check it out!
Last year, y'all did a New Year's Guide. Are you doing one again this year?
Yes. It will be published in the Dec. 21 edition--a week earlier than last year, to give you more planning time. However, with earlier deadlines for us come earlier deadlines to let us know about dining, music and general events.
So, please: Get us all of that information ASAP. Send general events stuff to email@example.com; send dining-related stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org; send music/club information to email@example.com. We'll need all the information by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13--no later! If you can get us information earlier, that would be greatly appreciated.
