* MOVIE NEWS *
And in movie news, the folks at Fox are laughing all the way to the bank! “Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” has made $734,116,992 world-wide, while Disney’s “Up” has only made $366,253,296, less than half that amount.
“Titanic” still reigns supreme with $1,835,300,000 – only three other movies are even over the billion-dollar mark!

* MUSIC NEWS *

New albums coming on September 1st:

Chevelle - Sci-fi Crimes

Arjen A. Lucassen's Guilt Machine - On This Perfect Day
(This is the music genius behind Ayreon and Stream of Passion.)

And early tickets for Trans Siberian Orchestra fans go on sale Sept. 3 & 4!!!
We see the show every single year and look forward to another incredible experience. THE BEST concert on earth!

* PHOTO OF THE DAY *

Dream Theater ONE more time, because it was such an incredible concert!

Had to laugh at Karen's comment. I had the same feeling, like sheesh - this Diane IS full of spunk with the amount of stuff in this post and the energy it must take to put it all together! LOL.

But thanks - as usual lots of valuable tips, links and leads! :)
