Normally I don't take this long between blog posts, but since my computer caught a virus last week, I've been doing bare bones work using Matt's laptop. As I await word from the PC tech when I can pick my (hopefully virus-free) computer, my work for DC9 has continued.

I was happy to include The Vatican Press in last week's edition of My First Show. I've known Eddie for a long time and he was a very helpful person in a critical aspect of POST. I was happy to return the favor and I look forward to what his band has brewing this year.

Later in the week, I covered a couple of acoustic sets by two Dallas-area legends, Terry Glaze and Patrick "Taz" Bentley. Glaze sang for a little band called Pantera back when they were a party metal band and Bentley has drummed for a number of bands, including Rev. Horton Heat.

And if that wasn't enough I covered their full rock set on Saturday night. Also on the bill were No Rest for the Wicked (which featured the second runner-up from American Idol's first season) and Here Holy Spain.

I won't lie: having my computer in the shop and fighting off allergies is not my idea of fun, especially since I'm still looking for a full-time job. I hoped to be starting another round of things last week, but other matters prevented such. I don't feel good when I'm not being productive -- it makes me want to be even more productive when things get back in order.

Alas, things are on the horizon. Some definite, some vague, but all things to look forward to. 2012 will be a better year.
