Bye Bye 2009 Hello 2010!

Well my holiday vacation has been extended a bit. I won’t be posting till after the first of the year, but thanks to TAG magazine for nominating Lou and Donnie’s cover of  Matthew Darkly’s song Crazy Daisy in their best of 2009.

Check back after the first, we’ll have a bunch of new stuff for you including some show announcements.

No new posts until next week.

Well in the spirit of  the approaching holiday I’m taking a few days away from the computer. Believe me there’s still plenty of stuff in the archive I could post and I will, all in due time my friends. But first I must get caught up on my Christmas shopping and begin the tour of Christmas parties.

Have a nice pre-holiday weekend everyone!
