Torture a Spammer

Are you sick of SPAM? Well, I found a cool new website, called Torture A Spammer. It's an online game you can play with the end result being death and destruction to spammers. Now's your chance for revenge!

P.S. Though the site does have an opt-in mailing list, you do not have to subscribe! For that matter, you don't even have to win the game to watch 'em die.

Two New Releases from Memories of Middle Earth

Andrew and I had a fairly productive weekend. We finally put the finishing touches on two new songs, "Weathertop" and "Shadowfax".

Some may've heard "Weathertop" during our recent performances. It's the first vocal release from the album that tells the story of Frodo and company's escape from Bree to the watchtower of Amon Sul where they encounter the Nazgul for the first time.

Right now, we expect that the album will be about 70% instrumental. And "Shadowfax" is one of them. It's an upbeat piece that evokes the image of a horse racing across the country. It's performed on the autoharp and recorder and despite the simplicity of the piece, it is very inspiring.

The next big projects on our list is "Fellowship of the Ring" and another vocal song I wrote called, "The Ring of Hope".

"Fellowship of the Ring" is a powerful piece and last night, I laid a great Autoharp track that I think you'll love! If you want to find out more about Memories of Middle Earth, click here. You can now pre-order a copy.

The Passing of a Great Man

I'll have a complete report of Dragon*Con very soon, but today, I need to unload a wee bit. The convention was spectacular, but our final show was extremely difficult due to the fact that my granddad passed away on Sunday at the age of 86. It made for one helluva time, and I'm still recovering from that as well as the 18 hour drive back from Atlanta, Georgia.

Many thanks to all those who were so wonderful and supporting, including: Jeannie, Mike, Jessica, Shandy, Andrew, Cayce and all of Emerald Rose.

The funeral takes place on Friday, and contributions can be made to the Animal Defense League in the name of Earle W. Brokaw.
