random collection of things  
This is about the saddest thing I've seen in a long time. I think because I can relate to it a bit too much. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUUx5FdySs

There is a new Evanescence album, which is not as disappointing as I feared. I'm still confused by the people who hate Evanescence for being too religious. I'm just not seeing it. Sure there are some references, but it's not a bit stick of Christian Evangelism. I just want my own heavy metal band. Is that like wanted a pony?

glad I'm not the only one who thinks the kiwi is sad ;9 I keep wondering what happens at the bottom...

I didn't think the sound effects gave any doubt what happens at the bottom.

ah, yes, putting the sound up does help with that ;9

Evanescence as Christian rock?? I'm definately going to have to watch for that next time I listen.

"The Open Door" is an interesting album but notably different from "Fallen" in a couple of regards. Open Door seems a lot less lyrically depressed and angsty, and more angry. I find I don't like it quite as much as I liked "Fallen". I'm particularly confused as to why "Call Me When You're Sober" is as big a hit as it is; I think there are stronger songs on the album that don't seem to be as appreciated by the charts.

I definately like Fallen better.

Yeah, what I've heard off of the new album is much better than the stuff that came out between it and Fallen, but I don't think it's to my taste. I'm mostly hoping that Ben Moody will get his act together and find a new group to work with, since I get the impression that I much prefer his songwriting to Amy Lee's.

Hmm... I'd only ever heard their first big hit song (can't remember the name); i didn't really like the sound of her voice, so I didn't look for their other stuff (yeah i'm weird that way - the vocalist can make or break it for me), but maybe I should listen to that album... whenever I can borrow it from someone.

urr, I don't get the Kiwi one. He hammers in a tree, and then... and then... what? jumps off and runs splat into something?

The expressionism is very cute, though. :)

The kiwi has been nailing trees into the side of a cliff. He's just finished the last one and jumps off the cliff so he can have the illusion of flying through the trees, since he can't fly by himself. It's his dream, and even though it's only illusion, to just taste the dream has been worth everything to him, even his life.
