    Hey dude, been a while! Hows things?

    Yeah, totally agree. AMD was slightly disappointing compared to everything else they've put out, but i'm intrigued with the direction they've taken towards this album. No guitars on a Say Anything record sounds strange, but Max has never been one to shy away from putting something different out there, so I reckon they could pull off something special. Andy Hull is awesome in Six Six Six too, always been a fan of Manchester Orchestra. Also can't wait to hear more of Bemis/Conley together! Glad you enjoyed Devil, it's not their best album in my opinion, but it was an impressive comeback for Owens I felt!

    Sweet, can't say I've heard of them but I'm always prepared to try anything out, I'll give them a listen to shortly! Daft Punk are one of those bands that I've always enjoyed their big hit songs, but have never actually dug into their discography to check them out properly. Might need to get around to that. Huge fan of La Dispute and TBS, what did you make of the new material? There's been so many great releases this year already, TBS, La Dispute, I Am The Avalanche, Manchester Orchestra, Seahaven, Fireworks, Architects, Issues...the list is endless. it's definitely been an incredible start to 2014.

    Yeah, give it a shot dude, lemme know what you think. It's pretty sweet, it didn't hit me as hard as their album Bone Palace Ballet did, but it's a damn good listen. You been listening to any new decent albums lately?

    Wild! We escaped our usual icy winter this year, but were hit pretty bad with the rain here too! Beloved is awesome bro, proper stoked to see them live again. You a fan of Chiodos at all? They're playing at the festival too, and I'm buzzing to see them live now that Craig's back! Had a listen to their new album yet btw?

    März 2014
  • Jaayson

    Alright dude! Not bad at all, currently buzzing cause I've booked my ticket for Slam Dunk festival this year, and the lineup is looking sweet! IKTPQ are playing too, so can't wait to hear their new material live..How about you man, all good?

    Yes, the two usually go hand in hand but for me, with the time I have now, I don't pursue it as much as I did when I was younger. If I do write something, it is randomness about my thoughts and feelings, but nothing too lengthy. Between my classes, part-time work, and my personal life, I am left with just enough time to go deep into a novel or two and enjoy some new music. That is pretty much the extent of my daily rituals but during this March Break, I was able to get caught up on a lot of 'needful things'. Anyway, I enjoyed the TDT convo and I hope the movie adaption(s) on the book series meets your expectations as well as mine. Time will tell I suppose.

    The ending? It is what it is. I did not like the ending at first because I was hoping Roland would find his peace. Maybe I was hoping for some super epic battle at the top of the tower or something to that effect. The second time I read it, it made me accept it a little more. The ending does leave it open to the imagination of what Roland could do differently next time around as he now has the Horn of Eld, maybe he will get it right on his next journey. Does Roland need both sandalwood guns and the horn to be successful because he's always missing one or the other as he tries to ascend the tower. For the movie adaption, where would the logical starting point be? Start from where the books do or some random point in Roland’s journey? Or from the very beginning where the audience gets a better idea of what’s going on?

    Yeah, I thought so. :) Books are almost always better than movies or TV shows.

    My second and third choices would be Wil Wheaton who, as you know, played Gordie Lachance in Stand By Me (based on the novella The Body) and Phoenix River (Chris Chambers). They both had originality in their acting and they both looked good in that '50's '60's time era. He was a scrawny kid at the time but Wil played the Gordie character with a lot of emotion to it. Wheaton made his character very believable and he's my favorite character/actor from that 1986 movie. Now did Ray Brower accidentally get hit by a train while picking blue berries or is it possible, in some alternate world, did the Man in Black push him into the train? Things that make you go hmm. lol

    Omy! Jake the poor boy keeps dying over and over like that cartoon kid Kenny from South Park!. haha. I like Mackintosh Muggleton (28 Weeks Later) for the character Jake but he has a strong British accent but who knows, he might do a good New York accent too. His debut performance in 28 Weeks Later is truly amazing! He thrives in action and plays it with a good sense of urgency.

    Hey Clint's son, Scott Eastwood, is in his late twenties and he can very much look in his thirties. He's a dead ringer of his father and he does act but I'm not sure how far his acting chops go in regards to the role. He will need to immerse himself into deep method acting for this lead role. As for Flagg, some actors that did come to mind were Charles Dance, Brad Dourif (loved him in The Two Towers), and Gary Oldman. Oldman is a master when it comes to playing evil roles. Anyway, those are some of my thoughts, assumptions, and speculations on the matter. :)

    März 2014
  • liquidUtopia

    The Roland character is at or around 36 years old but then there's all that time leaping he does that accumulates his years above normal - well into the hundreds. The actor who's going to portray him would have to be in his thirties and King has compared Roland's physical appearance to his own and to Clint Eastwood's body type. King is 6' 4 and Clint's at 6' 2. Russell Crowe's at 5' 9 and Pearce is at 5' 10. In the movies though, they can alter the actor's appearance with camera angles and such to make them larger than life so to speak. I think they're going off the track with Russell Crowe imo. Crowe is an established actor but I'm not sold on him being Roland. Guy Pearce is a great choice but would his age be a factor for the role? Maybe not, he does carry his age well...con't

    I only heard of it, haven't read it yet. But I know they made a TV show out of it, based on this story.

    März 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    I really love long books, when the story is good. :) But I might check them out, thanks. :)

    März 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    Okay, thanks for the explanation. :) Haven't read any such novellas. But I know King wrote some and published them. :)

    For directors, I would have went with John Hillcoat, Ridley Scott, or the gritty Alfonso Cuarón all have a post-apocalyptic futuristic sense of time. John Hillcoat has done westerns and post-apocalyptic movies in the past and Scott has a ridiculously good sense of periodic time on an epic level and not to mention an eye for detail. Ben Foster would have been my Eddie Dean with Jared Leto being my second choice. The first movie will no doubt determine the outcome for the rest of the series so it's critical on how it's portrayed and if it lives up to the book series. If not, then we might see it go the way of 'made for cable'. That would be shameful.

    King and Koontz are similar but both are in their own league with those brilliant minds of theirs. For the past several of years, the making of the film adaptation of King's TDT series had been uncertain but last I heard it was a go. With director Ron Howard keeping a lid on the project it certainly has the TDT fans in a buzz. I read somewhere that Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul was to do the role of Eddie Dean but who knows where the whole thing is at these days. My only concern is that it stays true to the book series and not get all Hollywood and lose the essence of it. It's quite the series so obviously several movies would be needed to cover TDT just like Tolkien's LOTR series. It would be a gargantuan feat if most of the TDT theme if not all, stays intact during the crossover from book to film.

    The Dark Tower series and his prequel to The Dark Tower series, "Eyes of the Dragon" are my favorites from Mr. King. I love his Dolores Claiborne, Bag of Bones, and Dreamcatcher but his work gets a tad bit wordy for me. Still he's one of the best in the thriller/suspense genres of all time! My aunts live in parts of California so I can relate to Koontz's storytelling a lot. He captures the right feel(s) and environment of his stories that are in that specific region especially in the San Bernardino mountain regions. I also enjoy the House of Night series by P.C. Cast/daughter Kristin Cast, Michael Koryta (So Cold the River), and anything from Tami Hoag. :)

    Heyu, it's only me reppin' suspenseful novels and their authors to others bookworms on my page. If I'm not listening to music then I'm far off in some adventurous dark novel. :)

    März 2014
  • panuki

    Good on you for supporting artists you like. I'm glad you liked it anyway, I would recommend Alive 1997 as well but it's not really as accessible as Alive 2007. If you appreciate Homework and their older grittier sound, give it a try. Otherwise here's to an Alive album in 2017?

    März 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    I'm not much into these terms like novella, so I don't know exactly what you mean. Is it sort of short story? Then I don't have one. I rarely read short stories.

    März 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    Amazing! :D Probably IT is my fav novel. Even though I only read good books by King. :) Yes, his imagination is limitless. Oh, and I forgot to mention Tolkien, I love The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Without them there would probably no Dark Tower series or Harry Potter. :)

    März 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    The Harry Potter books are definitely my fav series. I really think it isn't only made for kids, it is a story for everyone. So full of love and magic. :D Then I'm currently reading The Dark Tower saga by Stephen King, he is my fav author. And I enjoyed The Hunger Games Trilogy. I like vampire stories like the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, really good actually, not like the Twilight crap. :P And I like the books by Lisa J. Smith, The Vampire Diaries. :)

    Game of Thrones is a show I haven't watched yet, but it is on my list of shows I have to watch. :D I heard only good stuff about it and I like fantasy stuff. :) But I think I'll start with the books, as I am a bookworm. :P

    Aw man, I can't stop going back to Issues album. I've always been a fan of Tyler Carter and his voice. When he sings in the album you can totally hear how r&b influences him massively, and it works so well throughout the whole album. Give it a shot dude! I've never been sort of fixed into one genre, my taste is literally all over the place which I suppose isn't really a bad thing. Other than Issues though, I've only really been listening to Architects and Northlane as I'm going to see them in a weeks time. Was so chuffed to hear Northlane were coming over from Aus to support!

    Thanks. What's your top 5 Saves the Day songs?

    Februar 2014
  • ContagiousNic

    Yeah, it could be someone completely different. :D We will see what happens. Really looking forward to the new season.

    Februar 2014
  • Jaayson

    There's so many smaller aussie metalcore bands out there that are starting to get a lot more recognition, like Northlane, Buried In Verona, In Hearts Wake, Saviour, For All Eternity, Hand Of Mercy, Prepared Like A Bride etc...i could go on and on, obsessed with aussiecore. If you haven't given any a proper listen to, definitely worth checking out. Yeah, Haven't had the chance to get round to the new IKTPQ album yet man, but i love those guys. Saw then live years ago after they released Music For The Recently Deceased and they put on one hell of a show. Devastated when they broke up but was glad to hear they're together putting out new music, I'll need to check it out shortly! Have you checked out Issue's debut album? I've been obsessed since it's release!

    Februar 2014

    Those are some crazy plays you've got for Saves the Day right there! Chaotic. Highest number I've seen yet. Thanks for accepting the friend request too.

    >>What's their best album? In my opinion, Somewhere In Time is the best Iron Maiden album.

    Februar 2014
  • Jaayson

    Yeah that'll be awesome mate, i'd kill for that! Would love to live in Aus, the Aussie metalcore scene is one of my favourites, so many smaller, up and coming bands that are sounding sick! Yeah it's a big disappointment, I definitely can't make it to the show. Just gonna have to sit and wait patiently until next time man!

    It's looking more and more unlikely that I'm gonna be able to go which is killing me! Just don't have the funds to pay for travel and accommodation, I've already got Architects to see next month, and I'm going to Slam Dunk in May this year which will cost a fair bit as that's down in Leeds. Slam Dunk's always a brilliant mix of hardcore and pop punk so i'm pretty stoked for that. Just hate not living closer to the bigger cities where bands tend to tour.

    mhmm. under all the disgust and repulsion i'm still in disbelief. i don't think i'll ever be able to accept it. oh yeah... it's like finding out that your all time favourite song is written by a child sex offender.. god forbid! oh wait, that is my reality. ha ha.

    Februar 2014
  • Jaayson

    Tell me about it, feel like it's a dead end job here, desperately wanna get out there and do something that can go places. Sweet, that'll be decent mate. I was a country kid myself growing up, moved into town about 4 years ago. It's only a small town though, I'd love to head out to the city myself. Brand New are touring shortly with Saves The Day over here, I'll be devastated if I miss out on that one! Perfect lineup.

    Februar 2014
  • kat-tun

    yeahh it does hey.. i followed pretty much everything lostprophets related - heaps of interviews, social media, gig reviews etc. never could i imagine ian to be the monster he is.. i can only imagine what his friends/family/rest of the band/basically anyone who has ever gotten to know him feels. i guess you can never really know someone, no matter how close you are with them hey? sometimes when a lostprophets song come on rejoice for a second or two before it all comes back..

    Februar 2014
  • Jaayson

    it's not bad I guess, but HMV is far from what it used to be. I feel your pain, there isn't much excitement involved with my job either. Sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours a day can be ridiculously dull, if i ever forget my headphones i'm in for one hell of a boring shift! Any decent gigs coming up in Aus soon?

    Februar 2014
  • panuki

    Highly recommend Alive, it's a very cool mix of songs from Homework, Discovery and Human After All. Makes me regret not going to see them live in 2007, although I'm not sure I could have even been able to get into the show then. I also doubt that they have anything in the works right now, as far as a fresh album - they've said they want people to absorb the album they've spent 5 years on. And they're probably feeling pretty good about themselves after RAM won Album of the Year. Although I'd love to be pleasantly surprised..
