First Post! (Oh, and Happy Celebrity Death Month apparently)

Good morning Blogosphere. I'm new to this whole blogging thing, so cut me a little slack. I've got a Twitter, which is basically a mini-blog from what I've heard. 140 characters aren't really enough for a day's activities. Well, lately it has been. Translation: I've had nothing to do lately but read. Summer reading lists SUCK! I mean, I know it's only 4 books, but it's Summer. I personally enjoy reading as long as I'm not told what to read. I read for fun. I don't like reading assigned books at all. So far at least. I'm currently working on The Client by John Grisham. I'm in chapter 4 (started the book today) and so far it's very interesting. He wrote this book quite well. I'll letcha know how I like it once I'm done.

In other news... R.I.P to the 6 dead celebrities that died this month. Especially to Michael Jackson and Billy Mays. (Not because they were more worthy of it or whatever. Their's were just soooo unexpected.) For those of you who didn't know there were 6, I'll post links to them all.

David Carradine
Ed McMahon
Farrah Fawcett
Michael Jackson
Billy Mays
Fred Travalena

(Pssssst... Click on the names^ )

I'd also like to mention that George Clooney and Rick Astley are both very much alive, contrary to some speculations.

Oh, btw, I'm very excited about the new release of Dream Theater's
latest album, Black Clouds & Silver Linings. (see right) I had to go to about 3 different places to find the 3 disc edition, but I found it! And may I just say, it is a wonderful album. Enough heavy stuff for the metalhead in all of us, but enough soft parts to touch our souls. Haha, so maybe I was exaggerating there. But, this album is very well done. I give it 2 thumbs up. :) The covers of Queen and Iron Maiden are also great, and I would definitely recommend the song Wither to anyone, even non-Dream Theater fans. Ok, well, for now, I'm off. Hoping this is a good start to a mediocre blog. Thanks
