Just wanted to post a Happy Holidays to everyone. I don't know when or where I'll see each of you next, but I just wanted to say that I hope life treats you well and that your holiday is a fulfilling one. I'll be in San Diego at my sister's new house for Christmas Eve/Day and I do not yet know where I'll be for the New Year. Hails to you all.

From the Kamelot Homepage:

"Writing sessions for the next album!
Thomas reported in with the following: "I just got back from a whirlwind 3 weeks in Norway and Germany. We have written 5 new songs for the next Kamelot follow-up to EPICA. Here are some working titles that may change on the album – March of Mephisto, Nothing Ever Dies and Serenade. The new songs range from HEAVY to Fast and we worked on a new ballad."
Timo Kotipelto and Jörg Michael are out of Stratovarius.

After several emergency meetings, this move finds acceptance within the band. “Due to irrevocable and massive difficulties between the band leader Timo Tolkki and me, it has been agreed that this is the best thing to do to preserve at least some of the integrity the band used to have", says singer Kotipelto. "I will now fully concentrate on my solo album and I am convinced that this is the best way for me."

Jörg Michael says that his priorities lie elsewhere at the moment, but that the suddenly escalating trouble in the band is one of the main reasons he doesn't want to play in Stratovarius anymore.

Jens Johansson states that he thinks this situation is very unfortunate, but that he is ok with it nevertheless, given the tension and turmoil of the last couple of months.

Jari Kainulainen was not available for comment

"I think this is the beginning of new era for Stratovarius and that the future looks bright and promising. I have composed some of my best songs during the last month", Timo Tolkki says from his writing mansion next to the gulf of Finland. He promises that Stratovarius fans will be both surprised and amazed by the next album. "If anything good comes out of this, then I guess it will be the emotions I have managed to channel into new songs about this situation, which has been very heavy for all of us." he continued. "I have been having quite bad mental problems lately, but I feel better now due to anti-depressive medication my therapist has prescribed me."

Also, according to the booking agent Continental Concerts, the current line-up is "100% certain" to fulfill all its obligations regarding festival dates next year even though there is a lot of simmering hate still, waiting to boil over.

According to Tolkki, he is currently talking to a German singer and a Finnish drummer about replacing Kotipelto and Michael, but he stresses that absolutely nothing is confirmed at this point. He adds that he is actively looking for replacements.
Iron Maiden will be at the Universal Amphitheatre on January 30 and 31.
From www.rammstein.com

"The Rammstein DVD LICHTSPIELHAUS will be released on PAL format December 2003 and on NTSC format January 2004! For the first time LICHTSPIELHAUS will feature an entire collection of all Rammstein videos, exclusive live material of the band and making of material of selected videos.

Breed Demo -- I would suggest getting it from Fileplanet, I plan on picking it up this week.

Breed spawns new demo - PC News at GameSpot
Ouch! A moment of mourning. Although I haven't gotten along great with most of the games that Black Isle Studios have put out. I have bought a lot of them, just most of them couldn't hold my attention. They were an excellent development group devoting a lot of time and effort in the D&D gaming genre.

So I got kinda crazy here...

I bought Chobits the complete series from Ebay for a great price because it was being shipped from Hong Kong, and it turned out excellent...

But that led me to purchase Witch Hunter Robin the complete series and Tenchi Muyo the complete TV series.
