10:50 - ANGEL REAPER ..so i was working on my diploma project...one of the tests i was doung is about to finish ...after 11 hours of numbers crunching ...
07:07 - Redn1ght Lol.... I just noticed that my sort-of encyclopedia of mythologies is made in Egypt... A MIRACLE, so many books are printed in China.
04:56 - ScreamingSteelUS Yeah, it seems like Cracked has now overtaken "MAD." Moving online in 2005 was a very smart idea. I've had the chance to peruse some old "MAD"s myself, but I've been a loyal fan of Cracked for six or seven years now.
04:49 - Redn1ght No wonder then! @Screaming. (Only way I knew about MAD was because of seeing some OOLD issues in a second-hand book store and dad showed them there.)
04:43 - ScreamingSteelUS Actually, yes. Cracked began life as one of the many magazines competing for the market "MAD" created. It was the only competitor that managed to survive, and while they now have their own empire, they began as a "MAD" ripoff.
04:36 - Redn1ght Hmm.. I wonder if there's any connection between MAD magazine and Cracked.com.... Their humor is similar to each other in a way.

About a month ago, Liechtenstein-based gothic metal band Elis parted ways with vocalist Sandra Schleret. A few days ago, the band announced her replacement will be singer Simone Christinat from Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
Simone herself had the following to share: "I am really happy to be announced as the new Singer of Elis within these days. I feel honored to be a part of this great band and I'm looking forward to a lot of good moments with Elis.
It feels like the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I am excited to get many new experiences as the new Elis singer. The first show will be in July. Until then there have a couple of rehearsals to be done. Of course it would be great to meet you Elis fans soon at one of our upcoming shows."
"More than 4 years ago I joined Elis as their new singer. Our journey was very special to me, and I think that we found one another at a time when we really needed it the most. I gave my best to honor Sabine's legacy and nevertheless stay true to myself and open a new chapter together with the band. I am sorry to say that we have reached a point where this chapter now comes to an end. We had an amazing and exciting time and the guys really touched my heart. We made a great album in which I've put all of my heart and which means a lot to me. We sat together and talked long about everything, and we concluded that it is better to go separate ways from now on. I simply feel the need to devote myself to my own music, my aims and tasks, and the guys can not accompany me on that way because they have their own aims, ideas and expectations. I am sure that it's the right decision, because it is very important to me to dedicate myself to everything I do with full heart and soul. Now that I can not ensure this anymore I think it's only fair to say it freely. Elis will always have my full support and my friendship will guide them on their way. The guys have found a great new singer and so I am leaving with a good feeling, though I am very sad about the end of our time together.
