I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t stopped writing, I’m just taking the time to listen to some music. The pile of CDs on my desk has grown and there is also a serious pile of unopened DVDs that have gone unwatched…..I’m trying to get caught up.
The weather has been beautiful here in Rhode Island so I have been spending a lot of time outside working on the house, etc. Nice thing is that we have electric outlets outside so I can bring a radio outside and catch up on an album or two.
As far as collecting, I admit that I haven’t really bought much. The backlog of CDs and DVDs, and lack of time, has temporarily stopped my purchases. One thing I am going to start doing is ordering online more and getting back into Ebay. I haven’t searched Ebay in months and I’m starting to get the itch. I also can’t seem to get imports locally like I used to so I’m going to start using some online stores rather than wait for a U.S. release.
On the concert trail, I have a ticket to see Heaven & Hell on May 15 and I just scored a seat in the 10th row for Def Leppard/Styx/Foreigner for August 11. I also plan on seeing the Rush tour, the Poison/Ratt tour, and Michael Schenker (in Connecticut) if he shows. So far, the Summer concert series looks good.
My night off is tomorrow and I think my plan will be to set up some posts for the upcoming week so I can just login and publish. I seem to post in a timely manner when I use one day to knock out a week’s worth rather than do one a day. I’d also like to update some links, blogs, and websites to the sidebar.
The good news is that I have actually GAINED readers in the last month even with a lack of posts. A check of the blog stats shows that people are coming to the site to see Gene’s facelift and then moving to other posts and exploring. To all the new readers…..Welcome!
And to all…..stay Metal!
