Общественная месть «Одноклассникам.ру»

Моё терпение иссякло, ибо не далее как вчера днем я получил на «Одноклассниках» игривое послание от какой-то 37-летней бабы:

Признайтесь, Всеволод, вы ведь вертуал?

Поэтому я рекламирую здесь замечательное сообщество shkola_urodov, цель которого – показ нашего общего отношения к уродам («обоятельным и симпотичным вертуалам») из «Одноклассников» и прочих «социальных сетей», водящихся на просторах рунета.

Прошу веселиться и рекламировать данное сообщество!

Прекрасная новость для видео- и меломанов – новый DVD Rush

Новый DVD (и опять тройной) всеми нами любимой группы Rush выйдет 25 ноября. Нижеприведенная информация нагло стырена сегодня с сайта Dutch Progressive Rock Page (DPRP).

RUSH: will be releasing the Snakes & Arrows Live DVD in both standard DVD format and Blu-ray disc!

The "Snakes & Arrows Live" DVD was filmed with 21 high-definition cameras in 16x9 widescreen format over two nights in October 2007 at the Netherlands' Ahoy Rotterdam arena during the renowned rock trio's lengthy world tour. Additional SD footage was filmed in Atlanta this past July. The five-month trek supporting RUSH's critically acclaimed 2007 studio release "Snakes & Arrows", which includes the Grammy Award-nominated track "Malignant Narcissism", topped Pollstar's Top 100 2007 Tours list at #12.

While previous DVD releases showcase different sides of the band, this DVD offers fans a rare and close up look at the prodigious musicianship for which the band is renowned. Cameras follow bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart closely, capturing not only their playing note for note, but also the intimacy they share on stage. The diverse track list includes many new songs from "Snakes & Arrows" as well as old favorites like "Tom Sawyer" and "Freewill" plus an explosive rendition of "Between the Wheels". Among the hidden gems and numerous special tour moments included as extras is the fan-coveted "What's That Smell" vignette and outakes, a skit used to intro the second set, which capitalizes on the still emerging comedic talents of both Alex and Geddy who excel (and revel) in their roles as wild characters. Featuring collector's quality packaging and a choice of Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound or PCM Stereo for a superior audio experience, the DVD was mixed by frequent collaborator Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Mick Jagger). Total running time is 221 minutes.

"Snakes & Arrows" made a triumphant debut on the Billboard 200 upon its release May 2007, entering the chart in the #3 spot. The album's popular success marked RUSH's highest chart debut since 1993, as well as the group's eleventh top ten album in the U.S. "Snakes & Arrows" also debuted at #3 in the band's native Canada and at #13 in the UK — the band's highest British chart ranking in 16 years. In additioon, the album premiered in the top ten in Sweden and Finland, and in the top twenty in Norway, the Netherlands, and Japan.
