I Said I Would Blog and Dammit, I’m Blogging!

The Live Music Edition

You’d think that as someone that teaches others how to blog, I’d know not to freak out when I hit a schlump.  I mean, I tell my clients all the time that it happens. I also suggest that they have some stuff written in drafts so that they can have something, anything to post without the pressure of having to create something.

Do I follow my own advice?  Hell no!

I didn’t even have anything worthwhile in my drafts.  But in my defense (yeah, yeah, here come the excuses), I really couldn’t look beyond how damn exhausted I was.  Next semester I’m going to have to come up with a better plan.

But good news…I’ve been to concerts.  Many, many concerts.

Let’s see, in the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen Carrie Rodriguez at McCabe’s, some bands I did like and some band I didn’t much like at the Troubadour (of course I can’t remember their names – but I do have photos somewhere), the Indigo Girls at the House of Blues in Anaheim (no photos), the Allman Brothers at the Greek (I love the Greek, it’s my favorite venue for shows), and last night we saw REO Speedwagon and Styx at the Nokia.

So you see, I have been busy.  While we wait for the FOREVER time it takes videos to upload, I’ll share some photos with you…

Allman Brothers – as if this doesn’t say it all…



REO Speedwagon






I’ll get the videos up in another post once they’re done.

    Heh, I could never keep a stash of worthwhile drafts. I’d write one on Monday and I’d be using it Tuesday. I’m in a slump, too – partly because I’m out of the habit because of not having enough time when I’m in school, and partly because I feel like I have nothing to write about.

    Now I’m out of school, and my butt’s getting kicked with lots of shifts at work – and I’m not making lots of money, which would help make up for the fact that I might only be getting one day off a week. Guh.

    Oh, look, I almost wrote an entire blog post right here in your comments, heh.

    Michelles last blog post..Peonies!

    What a great mix of music! Very cool that you get to see so many shows. Wish I could have seen the Carrie Rodriguez and Allman Brothers shows. Please don’t beat yourself up to much for the lapses. There’s this thing called a life. We all need one to be able to have worthwhile stuff as frames of reference & to write about.
