    Ok, so i have a pretty great idea, as far as Im concerned. Remember the LP Newscaster videos? [video=youtube;JQBToIHTGjs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQBToIHTGjs[/video]
    I think it would be badass if we did our own version for LPA on the new LP tour. What do you guys think?

    So the people who went to a show would give a report of what is going on? Or do you mean people follow the band around like [instert correct term here :lol:] and find out all the latest news?

    LOL @ Hawk. You do realize the term pedophile stands for perverts who like children, and not sexually charged stalkers right? :lol:

    Personally I love this idea and I'm all for it. It could really give the LPA an advantage, and I think it'd be cool to have people doing road blogs/video reports of the shows. Decent idea Jay!

    Thanks! I definitely think we should keep this idea open, it could very well give us more popularity, and a lot more members to the site. :)

    This does sound sweet! Everyone could get assigned a show or something. Good idea.

    When Muse comes here with Linkin Park, to Tempe, Arizona (praying that someday it happens), I will have dibs. Seriously. No one will touch that shit but me.

    Keep in mind that even though everyone is calling "dibs" that if we did go ahead with this, newscasters would be picked based on camera presence, voice clarity and personality. The person is basically representing LPA, so if the person is hard to understand and extremely dull on camera it's not gonna work.

    When's the next LP show? Perhaps we can figure something out by then.

    the first show on the tour is October 7th in Buenos Aires. I think that will be plenty of time to get this set up and people picked for each show on tour :)

    There's also a problem with this. How can we be sure that the person we pick to do these things isn't a psychopath/crazy person...and that people won't pretend to be "from LPA" and cause trouble just because it's 'for the newscaster'?

    It's a decent idea but what made the newscasters work is that Fiore randomly picked one or two streetteamers and they were given a cue card to read basically telling them what to say. LPA neither has the ability, nor the manpower from here to streamline it like that.

    Just a few concerns there.

    Auditions are always great. I think it would be best to have a "panel" of judges who have been in the LPA for a long time, who have massively contributed to the site.

    Me and Zaneroks can team up when they go to MN. Which is way down the road haha.

    If it was me I would just make a thread called "Post a newscast to a show you've been to!" I don't see why only one person can do each show.
