Writer Band Debut Album and President Near-Miss

So I was in Washington D. C. over the weekend for my birthday with my wife and two friends.  On Saturday, around 2pm, we visited the Lincoln Memorial.  We were halfway up the stairs when security started turning people back and sealing off the area with caution tape.  Thinking we were in the midst of a biological warfare attack, we walked away at a brisk pace.  Three snipers on the roof of the memorial reinforced my decision to begin speed-walking.  Turns out, the secret service along with the snipers and K-9-assisted officers were securing the area for President Obama's surprise visit. 

At least I got to see half of the stairs of the memorial, right?  Did I mention that the reflective pool was completely drained and filled with mounds of sand?  Not everyone gets to see it that way.

Anyway, since my weekend began early, no one knows the unfortunate news—I'm on hiatus from the Office Band.  But the good news is, I recorded a debut album with a new group of guys and we're calling ourselves the Writer Band!  Below is a promotional photo (notice the "less-messing-around" attitude) along with the EPIC track-listing of our dual-disk album.
