Rachael here~ I don't think my answer is too terribly creative, but whatever. >.>

I think JE needs a UStream channel or something. That way we get live behind the scene stuff on stuff like magazine shoots, rehearsals, etc. It could follow someone different every time.

I also want Shige to have a photography blog/Tumblr or something so we get more than just the monthly PhotoShigenic articles.
