    Cover Songs

    The first one is a cover of Aerosmith's "Dream On" from the "Not The Same Old Song And Dance" tribute album. It features Ronnie James Dio on vocals and Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar. It isn't too different from the original and Malmsteen's fretboard wanking can be a bit much but I love it nonetheless. Dio has a great voice for ballads and more somber songs. A shame that he barley ever recorded song like that. (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-2u2lhGO4w) Then there is Peter Gabriel's version of "The Book Of Love". I discovered the song through the Scrubs series finale. It's beautiful. The original is good as well but the orchestral arrangement and Gabriel's vocals elevate the song to something amazing. (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FtbrDFgB_4) Another Cover I've always been partial to is Seether's version of George Michael's "Careless Whisper": (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izGwDsrQ1eQ This is a cover by Van Canto, a German a-capella metal band (yes, this is a thing that exists). They covered "Into The West" by Annie Lennox from the "Lotr: The Return Of The King" Soundtrack: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvF31-2bVNE) And finally a Queen cover. Metalium's Cover of Queen's "Show Must Go On". The original is perfect of course but I think this is very well done as well: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t99KH0TR-J4)

    Back in 2004 an Australian comedian too the lyrics of the Cannibal Corpse song "Rancid Amputation" and created a lounge music arrangement of the song. That was done in response to Australian politicians wanting to cancel their upcoming tour:
  3. They are rebooting Digimon Adventure in April. According to Anime News Network the show will feature an original story and not simply be a remake of the original anime. Source: Anime News Network The new movie "Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution", which takes place five years after Tri, will be released in Japan on February 21. It will screen in select theaters in the United States on March 25. Source: Anime News Network So the 02 kids will be on this although the main focus appears to be on the 01 kids judging by the trailer. It's not ideal but realistically this is the best scenario fans of Adventure 02 could hope for. The trailer is dope though.
  4. As far as nostalgia goes Adventure 02 is as important to me as Adventure 01. I know 02 has it's fair share of problems and that it isn't as highly regarded by Japanese and international fans alike. But writing them out of the show in just a hamfisted way and not even bringing them in for the grand finale just feels wrong and disrespectful. We don't even get to see them. We only see their silhouettes in one scene. They couldn't even be bothered to come up with updated designs for them for that one scene. And that is all they needed to do. They didn't need to animate them or hire voice actors. But apparently that was still too much effort. If you going to just ignore 02 you might as well do what they did with the most recent Halloween sequel and ignore everything that happened after the original show entirely.
  5. It's not that good. And they completely ignore the 02 kids. I was very underwhelmed by the whole thing. I hope the next series of movies they do will be better. At the very least they have released aged-up version of the 02 kids as promotional material so they hopefully won't ignore them this time around.
  6. Agreed. But I also feel that it is kinda unfair to compare the two. The Pokemon anime is basically a promotional tool for the games that they can keep going for as long as they keep making the games. And they keep everything as simple and streamlined as they can so nobody has troubles getting into the anime even if they haven't been watching since episode 1. All you need to know is that Ash is trying to become a Pokemon master, that is traveling the world with his Pikachu and 2 interchangeable companions to reach that goal and that every now and then Team Rocket will try to steal his Pokemon and you are good to go. There is no complex plot, no character development, no deep lore and the stakes are low (except for the movies). Digimon on the other hand had a more detailed plot, more interesting characters who go through changes and who have relationships with other characters that develop over the course of the show, deeper lore (especially when you get to later seasons), high stakes and most important of all: an endpoint. The show isn't designed to be open-ended. And with the exception of Digimon Adventore 01 and 02 we never meet the same group of Tamers twice.
  7. He announced his retirement in 2015 due to health issues in an interview. Initially Geddy Lee claimed that Peart was misquoted and that he was taking a break. However in 2018 Alex Lifeson confirmed that Rush were officially done.
  8. There wasn't any news about it. He kept it private.
  9. Rolling Stone reports that Rush drummer Neil Peart passed away last Tuesday at age 67. The cause was a brain tumor. He had been battling brain cancer for the last three-and-a-half years. Statement by the band:
  10. Nope. Just Triss. There is a journal entry that you get if you import a Witcher 1 save and chose Shani over Triss in which you learn that they broke up amicably because Geralt wasn't ready to settle down. Which totally makes sense to me. I'm not upset about that. But the same journal entry also states that after their break-up with Shani Geralt needed comforting and found solace in Triss' arms. And the first scene of the game is Geralt in bed with Triss. Despite me choosing to kick her to the curb in the first game. I get that for the story of this game Triss needs to be on speaking terms with Geralt but did they really need to make them a couple again right away? If they were just going to disregard the choice I made then why give me the choice to begin with? Also they only added the journal entry for the enhanced edition of the game. If you bought Witcher 2 when it was originally released and imported your save in which you chose Shani you wouldn't have learned about that at all. As if she never existed.
  11. I'm so pissed that they wrote Shani out of Witcher 2. Screw Triss Merigold. I'll ditch her as soon as I get the chance.
  12. The Mandalorian takes place in between episode 6 and 7, right? Major spoiler for Rebels.
  13. Radar Online are reporting that Ozzy Osbourne is on his deathbed. His daughter Kelly Osbourne denies the report in an Instagram post that has since been deleted (at least I can see it on her profile). I really hope this isn't true. But when the first reports of Dio's passing were published his wife/manager also initially denied them before officially confirming his death the next day. Edit: TMZ posted a video that was recorded yesterday in which Ozzy is out and about with his wife. And Ozzy himself made an Instagram post about it. So this really seems to be fake news.
