APPENDECTOMY-
On thur afternoon at abouth 1pm my stomach began hurting while I was at work.  I finished my shift thinking I would just tough it out and assuming it must just be something I ate but by 5pm that evening I was in bed with terrible abdominal pain.  I went to the emergency room at about 7:30pm and by 1am I was in surgery having my appendex removed.  I was released at 10am the next morning and I have been sitting at home since just watching movies and trying not to move too much.
I am fine and I am eager to return to my daily life yet also trying to take care of myself to insure that I heal correctly.  So Iif you mail order from me this week I will try my best to send out some extra cool packages.

All the best,
SLW

BACK FROM HEAVEN aaaaand The Lame Years is finished!

New album out now: BACK FROM HEAVEN.  This is the 12th and final volume of the 12 album series The Lame Years which was released monthly through 2013.  The final collection is a big rock album (FYI I nearly closed out with a folk record).  The opening track "Calling All Gods" lists as many 3 syllable Lovecraft Elder Gods as ones tongue can spew. You can stream or download the album here:

I am currently working on compiling a "Best Of The Lame Years" compilation album to be released early next year.  Let me know in the comments if there are any songs you feel strongly about including. 

Thanks for listening.  It's been a great year.  Next year will be even better.  Can't wait.
LOVE,
Sam
