The newest IT CAME FROM THE BARGAIN BIN entry is up, and this time the lucky winner is 2007's "I AM OMEGA," the uber-low-budget knockoff of "I Am Legend" from our pals at the Asylum:

I was bored this afternoon, so I whipped up a new Hub on some of my favorite bands and how they dealt with the dreaded Lead Singer Change over the years.

Well, this is kinda cool... one of my old Hubs about 70s Star Wars comic books got an out-of-the-blue boost from GeekChicDaily.com today when they featured it in a block of Star Wars related stuff on their site. Dunno how my article turned up on their radar, but I say thanks to whoever brought it to their attention...

As usual great stuff Keith.

Even I learned a thing or two in that article about the different releases as there were several I wasn't even aware of. Ironbound was great stuff as was Immortalis!

Great stuff as always but the Reece album is a great album. Different sure but I still love it and David sounds great but they probably should have changed the name.

I'm not the world's biggest Accept fan, though I certainly don't mind them, but I have to say, that was another damn fine article, my friend. Excellent writing.

I just received an e-mail from HubPages informing me that my collective deranged ramblings have achieved 10,000 page views thus far. Cool! A large part of that is due to support from y'all, so thanks a bunch and I hope you keep checking out my stuff!!

"It Came From the Bargain Bin" has a new installment... this time the victim is "Forbidden World" (aka "Mutant"), a 1982 "Alien" wanna-be from Roger Corman's New World Pictures.

Watching the 1967 version of "Casino Royale" made my brain hurt... so I wrote a Hub about it to try and make the pain go away.

Almost four years past its freshness date, I finally heard GNR's "CHINESE DEMOCRACY"... and now y'all can share in my experience:

Call me crazy but I think it's a great album. If it was an Axl solo album it might have been more accepted but with the GNR name and 15 years in the making it didn't have a chance. Plus when you take out the Aerosmith(Slash), Kiss(Adler), Stones(Izzy) and the Punk Rock(Duff) the sound is sure to change drastically and that would just leave the Elton John/Queen(Axl). I would rather have the old band or at least the old sound but for what it is I think it's great with unbelievable playing and production and Axl sounds great as well especially on "Street of Dreams".

Well, this is interesting. It's been brought to my attention that the Guns N' Roses article I posted on HubPages just yesterday has been copied in its entirety - including the photos!! - and re-posted by some ass monkey who's claiming it as his own original work on another article site ("BigEzine.com"). Son of a b***h!! Rest assured that I have already fired off angry e-mails to the proper authorities... Lord knows if it'll do any good, but the possibilities keep me entertained.

 

From what I've been seeing in the forums on HubPages, this particular site has a history of people rippin' stuff off from HubPages and other legit writing sites.

 

I know that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery 'n' all, but I hope the guy who ripped off my shiz gets horribly mangled in an industrial accident of some sort.

    • Some interesting comments by Erik on his thoughts about "Into the Great Unknown" according to a recent interview with AOR Watchtower http://aorwatchtower.blogspot.com/2018/10/entrevista-com-erik-gronwall.html The next album was "Into The Great Unknown" , released last year. Undoubtedly, it is HEAT's most experimental work to date. What was different while composing the album that sets it apart from others, musically? Erik Grönwall: I think the big difference was that we did not spend as much time together as we did while working on the album and even while writing material. We were all spending time with other people in the middle and I think that somehow influenced the compositions. I honestly do not like "Into The Great Unknown" , I think we could have done something better ... but it was something we needed to do. I believe you already have some material being worked on for the new album. How would you define the musical direction of what is coming? Erik Grönwall: No antics. Hard & Heavy ...
    • I agree the mixing/production leaves a little to be desired, the 'busy' sound is a fair critique, catchy tunes though
    • Agreed,although to be honest Im enjoying Midnite City so much that I have sorta passed this by since I got it.
    • Good album, the comments above are right on the money.  If you liked the debut this picks up where that one left off, but with a fuller sound.  My favorites are probably the first two promo tracks along with "Life Ain't Like This On the Radio" and "Until the End".  But I'd be hard pressed to point out a song that I didn't enjoy listening to.
    • The second song is pretty good melody wise but there's something lacking in the production department. Too rough, almost sounds like a demo. The guitar sound is pretty awful.  Don't like the production at all, sounds too 'busy'.
    • Yeah, that's pretty cool. Haven't thought about these guys for a while, but I hope an album is on the way. 
    • not listened properly yet but sounds a bit thin compared to Midnite City 
    • yeah I agree. Bigger sound. It's great. my only criticism again is the lack of variety , but it's only a minor gripe.
