I apologize for not putting this article up sooner. I have been in the process of moving the site to a new host and have been experiencing difficulties getting the domain to transfer. Everything is running on the new host now and normal posting patterns – for blog posts and album reviews – have resumed.
My Megadeth Cyber Army membership has shipped, but I have not received it yet. The postal service seems to be extremely slow these days.
In other metal news, I have learned that Alice Cooper coming to my city in July!
Since I have been getting so many album submissions lately, I have had to upgrade my storage space. My media drive was an old 70GB drive that I had lying around, it has now been replaced with a 2TB drive and the old drive now contains site and database backups in case of crashes.
I have noticed that in many cases, when dealing with the arts, if someone says they don’t like something, it is – in many cases – not because the work is inferior, but rather that the work is just not what the individual is used to, or is out of their comfort zone. Although, there is a lot of inferior art produced as well; I know, I have created some of it.
I recently learned that Peter "Skaven" Hajba of The Future Crew wrote a lot of the music for Bejeweled 3. I am glad to see that the talented people from the Demo scene are getting jobs in their interests.
Not satisfied to stick with just guitar, Google has released a "Goog" synthesizer as well. Pretty soon, there will be enough instruments for a whole band! What’s next? Google drums pad?
Joey Ramone’s new posthumous album will be released soon. Made from demo recordings, it has been produced by his brother Mickey Lee with Joey’s friends recording instrument the instrument tracks. This seems like a fitting tribute to the influencial Punk artist and I am looking forward to hearing it.
Well, that’s it for this iteration. I should have more ramblings to post in a week or two as usual.
