Still haven't had time to do a real update... I should have just taken the easy route and announced a summer hiatus but being that we're nearing the end of July it might be too late to do so... I haven't stayed inside long enough to write anything of interest though I have the feeling once I make it through the summer and the weather starts getting cold and uninviting I'll be happy to seek warmth in front of my keyboard. Please accept my apologies...
As for DC Soundclash... I had an absolutely awesome time and I am extremely thankful to Mark for inviting me to play some music! Oddly enough, it's hard to believe it was nearly a month ago! I wish I could do it again this Friday but I don't forsee me getting off work to do it... I am shooting for the last Friday of August, if they'll have me back! Hint, hint!! An absolute blast!!
Check back next month for another lame/lazy update! Hopefully I'll have something of substance before that but I'll just stick with the disclaimer that way I can cover my ass if I can't pull it together! LOL
