So I’m back from my brief medical hiatus, not at full-speed but getting there. It’s amazing how much stuff happens when you disconnect for even a couple days. The death of Jay Reatard disturbed me more than I thought it would. I write about it and the 49’r in this week’s column (which goes online Wednesday). I keep looking online for more information about his death, but it just ain’t there. Here’s a story about his funeral (which was Saturday) that appeared in the Memphis Flyer, including a eulogy written by Eric Friedl of Goner Records.

Well, today’s the last chance to get in on the drawing to win a copy of the Lazy-i Best of 2009 Sampler CD. To get your name in the hat, send me an e-mail (to firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and mailing address. It’s that simple. I’ll announce the winners tomorrow!

I picked the right time to be taken off my feet. It’s been quiet from a show perspective the last few weeks. Something tells me that’s all going to change Thursday night…
