Today was International EarthCache Day, and you got a digital souvenir if you found one today. Mom and I went to the one at the Chena Flood Control dam..that was cool, I'd never seen it before! (They had to close the gates at least 2 or 3 times this summer so the river wouldn't flood Fairbanks.) It was a beautiful day, and warm for October! Amazing there's no snow on the ground (there's none in the forecast either). There's lots of geocaches in that area (a group put out 100 caches around Chena Lakes!), so we looked for more..I haven't logged them all yet, but I found at least 10 or 11 (too bad mom already had some of them lol). The trails around the river are beautiful. :) Yay, nice day lol

Now Fabio Lione and Alex Holzwarth have left Rhapsody of Fire..well there goes my desire to listen to their new stuff anymore. It's just NOT the same without Luca and Fabio. I never got to see them in concert either. :( I hope Fabio will continue to sing, he has such a great voice! I'm also REALLY glad all this didn't happen in like 2005 or 2006 when I was obsessed with them..I would have been a crying mess! Still sad though :(

Day 5: Post a picture of you on holiday )

Hmm..not bad. The new guitarist is pretty good, though it's still not the same without Luca. Though I didn't even like Luca Turilli's Rhapsody's first CD..I haven't heard the just doesn't seem the same since they split up. It makes me sad :(

Though I have down moments, I'm still feeling pretty good on the Lexapro. It was driving mom crazy that I never wanted to do anything..even if I didn't say anything, she could always tell how miserable I was. I'm looking forward to enjoying myself in Arizona and doing fun things lol

An album that has to be listened to from start to finish )

Today a "new" volunteer started at the bookstore..Paulette said she'd worked there before and said I'd remember her. I didn't, which is weird since I've been there a long time and usually remember past volunteers. I asked her where she lived and she said "7th Avenue, at Southall Manor!" I was like "no way, that's where I live!" It definitely bothered me I couldn't remember her from Southall either haha (she's lived here a few months). I asked what apartment she lived in and she said 104. Surprised again..I told her I lived above her! She was so excited to finally meet the person who lived above her haha! I asked her if I made a lot of noise (I always worry about that..I walk kinda heavily) and she said no. Finally I remembered seeing her standing on her balcony one day and wondering who it was. Wow..small world haha

I had a dream I was at a Rhapsody concert (everyone was talking and being rude and the band members were freaking out and only managed to play two one of the CDs didn't work..what? Haha) and I met Luca Turilli (LOL at Rhapsody coming on as I'm typing this!). I asked for a picture with him and he was like "sure!" He put his face right next to mine (squee!) and someone took a pic. I looked awful in it haha but I was excited I finally had a pic with Luca :D

Still's supposed to snow till Wednesday! Jeez haha

Italian symphonic metal band Rhapsody Of Fire has announced that Tom Hess, known for his online guitar courses, has joined the band as a permanent new member. He recorded most of the rhythmic parts of the new upcoming album "From Chaos To Eternity" (out on June 17th) and also two guitar solos.

Alex says: "I saw Tom Hess playing on stage several times and always got impressed by his great stage presence and his way of playing. When I have heard the rhythmic and the solo guitars he recorded for Rhapsody Of Fire I was blown away, I could feel that strong presence in between every single note."

Luca adds: "I know Tom since many years. He is a great person, a good friend of mine and I am not surprised of the success he’s having teaching his guitar techniques all around the world. I am really proud to have built a strong partnership with him and I will always thank him for the support he gave me when I decided to create my Neoclassical Revelation Guitar Course. Therefore I am really honored to present Tom to all the fans of Rhapsody Of Fire as I am sure he will be the one who, through his artistic talent and unique skills, will make the difference in this band for the years to come!"

Umm..I hope that means Luca isn't leaving! I hope he's good anyway (but doesn't overshadow Luca!)

[ profile] joansies: Blog about a band that you absolutely HATE. Pick a band. Any band. As long as you just can't stand them, and don't understand what all the fuss is about.

Manowar. I used to like them but now they annoy me. Especially with lyrics like "the gods made heavy metal and they saw that is was good, they said to play it louder than hell. We promised that we would." Like..cheesy much? They proclaim how "true" they are they seem like righteous idiots. Who cares how true you are? If you make good music and stay true to your fans that's all that should matter right? And plus Joey DeMaio prevented Rhapsody from making music for like 4 years. I honestly still like a few songs though (Swords in the Wind, Nessun Dorma, Kingdom Come and Warriors of the World). And the way they dress is just..ew

The CD was produced by Luca Turilli and Alex Staropoli and it was mixed and mastered by Sascha Paeth at the Gate Studio (AVANTASIA, EPICA) in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Commented the band: "We are finally proud to announce to the world that RHAPSODY OF FIRE are stronger than ever and finally ready for their glorious comeback!

"We just signed a worldwide-level agreement with the legendary label Nuclear Blast, at this time the greatest choice we could have ever done. Wonderful people, a great business vision and the best organization possible, for a relationship that can be anything else but successful for the years to come.

"In the last months, we worked very hard and now all we can say is that a great new album, a real masterpiece of power/speed/symphonic metal, is finally ready!

"We are looking forward to inviting you to the unexplored snowy and icy majestic landscapes of the north, that mystical dark frozen world where even the tears of our beloved angels can't be anything else but frozen!"

I’m writing to you about an exciting new opportunity.
Would you like to be able to play guitar like me? Do
you want me to personally teach you to become the
ultimate ‘Neoclassical Guitar Maestro’?

REVELATION, the new Online Guitar Course created by me
for those who want to learn all the secrets behind my
neoclassical style of guitar playing.

As you can imagine, I can only teach a limited number
of students. So don’t waste time, come to my new

See you soon,


Haha wow..Luca will teach you how to play guitar like him if you qualify. I looked at the site and I was like *drool* at his picture on the page and there's a video of him speaking dramatically haha
