The Monday Show Low Down (Or "I Know Who The Werewolf Is!!")

How about that one sports team, huh? I'm not really sure who played... but that could well be either my complete and utter lack of interest in sports or the fact I've been on a scary monster deadline lately.

The latter has caused me to miss more shows that I'd like to admit lately -- but I'm glad that I'll be able to show people the video game I've been working on in the near future. Maybe I can even post a trailer...

Anyway, here's what this week is looking like and what I'd be going out to if I could. (To quote Lou Reed, "Some people like to go dancing... Other peoples? We gots to work!")
