What's Going On and Contest Winners

Things have been quiet around here lately, so I wanted to take a few minutes to update everyone.

Let's start with The Friday Rant and Vince. He has been groing through a few things that he needs to deal with. We both agreed that it was best for him to take a few weeks off to get things in order. If all goes well, he should be back to causing trouble the week after Thanksgiving.

Mike has been kind of quiet lately too. The reason is that he has been preparing to come to come here for an extended trip. He got in late last night and will be here until 11/26. You should be getting an update from him soon. The two of us should be hitting several concerts over the next week and a half (more on that later) and I know that Mike's excited to get his east coast fix. One of us is sure to update you on our exploits. I haven't seen him in 11 months and won't see him again until sxsw, so this should be fun.

Me? Well it has been a lot of behind the scenes things. This site has been taking a lot of interesting twists lately and that has tied up a lot of my time. I'll go into more detail on this later. I do have some time off next week, so I hopefully will be able to catch up on some of the backlog and head in to December with a clean slate.

Speaking of next week, it will be a weird one with Mike in town and the holidays. Due to this, things will probably run a little different than normal. Not so new release Tuesday should run like usual, but the mutiny and throwback will probably both take a week hiatus. The good news is that there should be some east coast show reviews from both of us and who knows what the hell else. It's not like we have ever been in the same time zone since this site began, so who knows what will happen.

I almost forgot to tell you something. My friend Greg, who has atleast 3 music projects going on in Baltimore at any one time, is going to write occasional features for the the site. He just finished his debut piece. It is an interview of one of his favorite Baltimore bands. A musician talking to other musicians about the business, it is a rather interesting read. So look for that soon.

Alright, some contest updates...

The autographed Jeremy Enigk CD was won by Steven of Gresham, OR.

The 2 Can Joann CDs were won by Craig of Durham, NC and Roopa of Baltimore.

Congrats to the winners. If you don't receive your prizes in a week or so, let me know and I'll figure out where they are.

We are still sorting out the Middle Distance Runner contest, but I should have those results soon.
