Upcoming topics:

Dark Tranquillity soon as well.

Water & Bodies s/t ep2 is released in 2 weeks finally.

I can mention, I count now 19 drafts are put together for the tv blog. Which is certainly more than half. Doing 1-2 per day has helped gradual progress for that long tv-addicts novel-length write-up.

Coheed and Cambria's new album "Year of the Black Rainbow" comes out April 13th.

the New Hampshire band Graph signed with Bear Minnimum records in Michigan. They may at some point end up in Minneapolis or St.Paul with a Midwest connection. I'd love to go see them. In the mean time, I shall be purchasing a copy of "Graph EP2"

lots more releases being announced that I've included in my 2010 Anticipation Calendar

2010 Oscar nominations were pretty much as bad if not worse than the 2010 SAG's and Globes. Save for The Messenger getting 1 or 2 extra nominations. And with 10 Best Picture nominees, seeing 'Up" in there was nice, for what it's worth. It won't win. Avatar will.

But Where the Wile Things Are not only wasn't nominated for any of the big awards, but was ignored for the soundtrack and technical awards as well.

I think there is something to be said for how poor a year for movies 2009 was. Go figure. 2010 ought to be better, it won't take a whole lot anyway.
