City of Ember

This looks like a great movie. Check out the trailer!

Note About Playlists

You may have noticed that I haven't posted a playlist for show here for a while.
Typing the playlists up on blogger is a real pain in the ass, and they end up crowding all the other information off the page and into the archives far too quickly.

From now on this blog is going to be reserved for reviews, news, programming notes, and whatever else oozes from my mind at any given time.

Weekly playlists for the show are now posted on the Tapping The Ether website:

Just check the menu on the left for the link that says "Playlists".

Check out the website for CD and movie reviews and metal news from many major news sources.

Lee Aaron On Street Legal.

"Metal Queen" appeared on the legal soap "Street Legal" in the eighties performing "Empty Heart" from her self titled album. An interesting note: all the material (posters, album covers etc.) that appear in the episode are from the "Call of the Wild" release--two albums prior to the album that "Empty Heart" actually appeared on.
