Hi People

Yes, I'm still alive. I've been working for over a month now, and I'm loving being in New York. However, getting the internet set up at my aunt's house has proven to be a major headache. So unfortunately, I'm only really able to get online on the weekends when I'm at my cousins' house. So that's why things have been so quiet here. But I'm still working on getting the net, so don't lose hope!

I want to say congrats to SNOWDEN who announced their signing with Jade Tree this week. I'm totally excited for them, and proud of them. They're definitely one of the most talented, and hardest working bands out there, and it's good to see that good things are happening for them. They're playing at SXSW, which I'm sure they'll be great at. I wish I could be there to see them. I'm definitely going to try and make it out to Austin next year. I've only been to one show since I last posted. I saw The Eames Era at Pianos a few weeks ago. They were fantastic and since the show, I haven't been able to stop listening to their CD, Double Dutch.

I've also been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash lately. Walk the Line was recently released on DVD and if you haven't seen it, you really need to. It's fantastic. Joaquin Phoenix is so good as Johnny Cash, that you forget that you're not watching Johnny himself. I'm bummed that he didn't get th Oscar for it, but at least Reese did. She did a fantastic job as well.

Well, I guess that's my update. Like I said, I'm still working on getting the internet set up, and hopefully, I'll be able to sometime in the near future.
