It's been a long time, we shouldn't have left you...

It's been busy around BGLU headquarters (ie our house) and we have not had the time to post anything noteworthy. That doesn't mean that nothing has happened, au contraire...
* Tia and I went to see Matt Morris in concert at BMI Songwriter's Night. Oh my...if you are really cool, you have either bought his CD or listened to the whole thing FOR FREE on www.mattmorris.net . Live, he is ILL! I mean, the CD does him no justice. What is real crazy is that he has this amazingly soulful voice and he looks like a little Dave Grohl (yowzers!). Anyway, we told a friend at the show about our review of his CD on his website, who told his manager, who in turned told his publicist who then called Matt over and had him meet us. BGLU is large, dude, don't sleep. Get on the train before it pulls off.
* Tia, a friend and myself had a HOTLANTA weekend when we road tripped it down to Atlanta to go see the Justified and Stripped Tour. Pictures and a review will be up soon. NO, I didn't pull a Rick Springfield, this time. Goodness, maul a married 80's icon in public and you are held suspect for life! See the archives for the infamous Rick Springfield story. I also got my belly button pierced. Those pictures will not be up until I lose another 30 pounds and if you see me around, no, I am not showing you.
* It is the middle of the year which means that it is half way until my birthday which means that I am suffering from Mid-Quarter Life Crisis. I am of course playing a lot of John Mayer, a lot of Switchfoot... On a lighter, less depressing note, Tia's birthday is on Tuesday so please send Happy Birthday wishes. We'd love that, especially if you are from Britain. We are going to see Anberlin and Further Seems Forever that night.
* BGLU would like to say we will miss Barry White, Celia Cruz, Skip Scarborough (he wrote "Love Ballad" by LTD and other classics), Gregory Peck and Katherine Hepburn. This world is a better place because of your talents. We love you.
