    BE SIMON COWELL!! : Earn cash from rating new music 7th Nov 07 at 7:00 PM
    I don't believe this has been mentioned before, so thought it might be worth putting a new thread in.

    Got a bit of spare time? Like new music of ALL genres?

    I was approached via my MySpace page to join this new(ish) venture, which basically lets you earn cash for listening, and rating songs by unsigned bands. I'm actually interested in new music, love listening out for new bands, and have a wide ranging taste in music, so this suits me as a bit of a hobby/past-time.

    The aim of the site is to help bands raise cash to fund recording their first album, and lets 'fans' invest in them to help do that. Scouts can even put some money into a band if they think they might do well, and can earn money from their success.

    Here's an excerpt from their website :

    Slicethepie turns every music fan into a record label. Earn money right now scouting for new talent, support your favourite bands by voting in Showcases and finance artists you think will be successful. Over time trade in and out of artists to build your own portfolio and make money in the process.

    You begin by being a 1 star rated Scout, and the theory is that the more bands you listen to and rate, the higher your Scout Rating, and the more cash you earn per listen and rate. It starts at 5p per listen, and you have to listen to a minimum of 60 seconds of each track before you can rate them. I spent a couple of hours doing this, rather than watching boring TV, rated 34 songs and earnt myself !!!163;1.90; I'm already up to a 2 start rated scout which now earns me 10p per rated track. The higher your rating the more you earn per reviewed track.

    I thought it was worth a dabble, and was quite interesting - there is some great music on there, but OMG there was some bad stuff too! I soon slipped into Simon Cowell mode and didn't feel any qualms at being totally honest with my scathing comments - like don't give up your day job!
