That Was The Week That Was -- Week 6 (November 13 - 19)
By The Peerless at The Peerless Prognosticator

Week Six was a week to forget. The Caps looked bad on the ice, were subjected to any manner and number of “what’s wrong” navel-gazing exercises from hockey intelligentsia, and fell almost all the way out of the Eastern Conference’s top-eight. Four weeks ago they were 7-0-0 and dreaming sweet dreams of success. Four weeks later they are 3-7-1 since then and have nightmares that they are playing like also rans. So what did this week have in it?...

More 2012 Tour Dates
By Joe Siegler at Black Sabbath Online

That didn't take long. I always assumed it would be longer until more 2012 Tour dates were announced. This appears to be similar to the 1998 "tour", when Black Sabbath played a bunch of European festival dates. This isn't the full fledged "World Tour" which will commence once the new album actually comes out. Although.. By this point in the process, I'd imagine they'd have all the songs mostly written. It wouldn't surprise me to hear at least one new song on these festival dates...

The Cage 3 Details!
By Joe Siegler at Black Sabbath Online

Back in 1999, Tony Martin hooked up with Italian guitarist Dario Mollo to produce a project called "The Cage". It proved popular, so a second Cage album came out a few years later in 2002. But that was it. Until now. Announced today is a third Cage album from the Martin / Mollo combination, entited "The Third Cage". Not a terribly imaginative album title (heh), but if the first track available from it is any indication, it's gonna kick ass...

Be in the Audience for Red Dwarf X
Posted at

Flash back, if you will, to the world as it was exactly thirteen years ago, in November 1998. Tony Blair was Prime Minister. Cher's 'Believe' was atop the UK singles chart.

Well, for the last time... until now...
