The Year End Note

(Originally posted on MySpace on Sunday, December 28, 2008)

Well folks, Once again I have to let you down. I know I promised you all another Thin White Rope road story and up until a day or so ago, I was planning on writing it all down for you. But I've just been too busy this last week catching up on movies and eating great meals to sit down and write much. The story I wanted to tell, about the band's Lithuanian shows during the Soviet tour in 1988, is just too long of a tale and I don't want to skimp on it at all. I WILL get to it in January. I know its been way too long since I last told a tour story, so maybe I'll even get to a couple of them next month if something else doesn't distract me from them. But I will get to at least the Lithuanian one.

2009 is going to be a year of big changes for Skip and me. I'll get to talking about those sometime next month as well. One of those changes is a small one and pertains to this blog. After today, I'm going to drop the reviews as a regular item. I just don't enjoy writing them much. But I do enjoy turning other people on to things I'm enthusiastic about, so I'll still write an occasional column when I'm really crazy about something. I'll probably end each blog with a few recommendations that will just have the title (movie, TV, music, etc) and some stars after it. Feel free to contact me if you want to know more about something. I'm always happy to discuss things with people and yammer on about something I like.

I'm going to be pretty busy this week as well. We're seeing several more movies ("Last Chance Harvey" with Dustin Hoffman doing a Q&A, "The Changeling", "The Reader" and possibly "I've Loved You So Long") and we're spending New Year's Eve at Disneyland once again with a great meal at our favorite Napa Rose restaurant. Our New Year's Eve is going to be great. I just hope the following New Year will be as well. It remains to be seen. But we'll discuss all that in the near future.

Until then, have a great time this week. Don't get too drunk and if you do, be safe. I'll see you back here next week with some more un-poetic waxing. Take care and HAPPY NEW YEAR'S!!!
