The deadly Mutaba virus

Filed under: — joe @ 12:25 am

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these… but I swear I have a good reason! My computer was hit by the digital equivalent of the deadly Mutaba virus… the Sasser virus. It took me forever to get the darn thing off my computer and caused all kinds of havoc in my life. Who knew that I was so dependent on a stupid laptop… yeesh. Anyway, I got it taken care of only to have my computer crash for completely different reasons. Now I’m back up and running after learning a very valuable lesson… I will soon be purchasing a Mac Powerbook and dancing on my HP laptop’s grave.

During my laptop crisis I had the privilege of opening for the very cool Jeremy Casella again here in Delaware. Cason Cooley was here with him and since he played on my cd, he helped me out on a few songs (along with my good friend Mike Melnick on bass). It was a lot of fun and I got the chance to try out some new songs that I’ve been itching to play. Also, my friends Christiana and “Rumorsage” Mark came to the show and it was great to see them. It never ceases to amaze me when I think about the friends I’ve made over the last couple of years… they’ve all been a real blessing and I can’t thank them enough for their support. Hopefully Jeremy and I will be playing a few more shows together this summer if everything works out. We did record the show and we’ll have a couple of songs available here for download soon.

On the cd news front, I just saw the final artwork for the cd and I’m very happy with it. So now once a couple of little errors are fixed (my own fault) I’ll be sending it out to be manufactured. So look for it to be available for preorder in the next week or so (for real this time… I promise!). I can’t tell you how glad I’ll be to get the album out there for everyone. There have been more weird delays with this thing than I could possibly imagine, I’ll just be happy to have it in my grubby little hands.

So that’s just about it for now, I’ll leave you with a lyric from the amazing Andrew Peterson

So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust You with my life
Let me live to give You praise
Let me praise You for the grace by which I’m saved
Lord let me sing

Grace and peace
Joe
