What's up 2013?
I hope everyone had a good/painless/drama free holiday experience. Mine was pretty much all of those things...of course with a handful of exceptions, but nothing really to get into.
I hope you managed to make it through your "pre-new year" without anyone saying "see ya next year...hahahaha"...it's a little known fact that you are allowed by law to punch someone in the throat if they say that to you. Look it up.
Looks like it's just 8 or so weeks until SXSW...yeah, I am getting pretty excited as I do every year around this time. Does anyone have a guess on what the "Big Secret Show" will be this year?
Anyway...lot's of new stuff on the show last night. It's already shaping up to be a good year for the rock and/roll.
Time for me to go to some real work now.
