AXS Contributions: Anime Expo, XTC top 10, SVIIB

Sometime last month, I received an email from Examiner about AXS needing a live entertainment writer – so I applied and become an AXS contributor! My most recent article was a “Performer Profile” on Anime Expo, though more like a brief history and explanation of recent AX attendance and the 25th anniversary. One of my most exciting recent articles was about the Top 10 XTC songs and since I am partly plugged into the XTC fan community, it has done very well based on clicks from Twitter and Bit.ly.

I wrote another performer profile for School of Seven Bells, who have recently released their final album.  Expect a lot more articles starting with A, X, and S! That was actually just a really odd coincidence. I’m also still examining fashion on occasion, but it may not be as much since I started working again. I guess we’ll see how long I can keep up with all my side gigs.

Check out summaries of the articles below:
