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.

Suomi metallers The Man-Eating Tree will have to find themselves a new vocalist because Tuomas Tuominen is no longer in the band. He had been part of the band since the beginning. The new singer will be announced in due time.
Statement from the band: "Unfortunately we have to inform that Tuomas does not continue any longer in our band as a vocalist. Various musical and also non-musical aspects led us to this conclusion. There is no bigger drama or so in our side and we don't want to discuss further about the reasons behind the decision, so please don't send us any questions concerning the issue. Quitting the band was not an option in any case and we will return with a new singer when the time is right.
Now it is time to gather some energy and even if the new material has been already written and practiced, the new album is not coming out in the near future. We would like to thank Tuomas from unforgettable times and great work without forgetting the kilometers of joy and tears we shared together. We wish you all the best in your life! The Man-Eating Tree: Janne, Vesa, Heidi, Mikko and Antti."
