Things of Interest

This will be quick. I fly to California tomorrow for a gig. I'm flying out of Houston at 8 am, which means I need to be at the airport by 7 am, which means I have to leave my house around 5:00 because Houston traffic is some nasty, unpredictable stuff. So I can't write long, because I have to go to bed at like 9:30 tonight, which is going to be extremely weird. But I need to give you a couple of vital pieces of rosskingworldtour info before I retire (for the evening, not for life; I won't retire for life until I can get Gwen Stefani and Willie Nelson to record a duet "Why Me Lord," which could totally happen).

Firstly: go here and check out my new "under construction" website. Since I got into a habit of hardly ever utilizing my relatively fancy (and expensive) website, I've decided to go simple and functional with the new one. It still needs tons of work, but the main thing I wanted you to know is that you can now purchase my CD's there. One of the areas that needs work is that a couple of my CD's are out-of-print, and we haven't fixed that on the site yet. So despite what you will see there on the "stuff you can buy" page, you still can't get Too Much Free Time anywhere, and you still have to use iTunes or another download service to get Sullivan's Flaw. I know it's going to be hard for you to resist clicking those links and longing for some nasal-singing, cheesy-drama-songwriting, pre-computer-tricks RK action, and some pre-world-famous, still-mullet-ish-working Chris Tomlin, but you've got to be strong, cuz you can't get those CD's. We'll do our best to have the site fixed in a jif, so that there won't be a mass outcry of angry fans, which could totally happen.

An if you have things that you'd like to see on the new site, let me know. I'm open.

B: I'm doing a concert at the Palace Theater in Downtown Bryan Friday April 24. Some of you remember that I did a concert there a little over a year ago. It's a really cool venue. This should be a great show. It's basically a fund-raising/awareness show for International Justice Mission, which is an organization that is so Kingdom-minded and important that I feel like a bonehead even representing them just a little bit. But I'm also honored, so there's that. In addition to a performance by ME, there will also be some song-playing and general stage-domination by Clairmont and Ian Nelson, among others. You've probably never heard of Ian, but I just finished recording/producing his debut project, and it's ridiculously good. I'm serious. All local-ish folk gotta be there.

That's all for now. Enjoy your weekends. I'm going back to Cali, where I may just get discovered by a talent scout who's looking for a late-30's, not-really-in-shape dude who used to work with pre-famous Tomlin, which could totally happen.

that's pretty funny. you write exactly like you talk.

i just heard you were playing local on friday. first thought an admin shoulda heard something and second i tried to track down a time and place. i found the place. the only time i found was what time you should leave for the airport last week.

Dude. You totally look like you're wearing a 70's Elvis white sequined get up on your new home page.

Or maybe my laptop screen is so small it just looks like you are. Either way, I'll take 2 of everything, and when will the t-shirts & koozies show up?

Cause I flew from austin to houston to corpus that day... i was supposed to leave austin at 1pm but didn't end up leaving till 11pm, missed my connection to corpus and had to spend the night in the houston-bush airport to catch a 9am flight to corpus... freaking rain.
