Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck!
Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip.
Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip?
Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it.
Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping?
Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make shit.
Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit.
Nice Guy Eddie: I don't even know a fucking Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?
Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.
Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special.
Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back and suck your dick?
Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that.

A VERY rare sight.....

While at one end of the Mag city there was horror and disaster lying.... at the other end there was an amazing piece of history....
Undergoing a restoration process is an Austin Sheerline Luzury Limousine.... Sheerline was in production from 1947 to 1954. It was a luxurious car in the style of the contemporary Rolls-Royce or Bentley but at a much lower price. According to the records only 8000 cars have been manufactured... So its quite rare to see one of these huge machines...
It has a huge 3995CC six cylinder over head valve engine that generates a 125 Bhp, to pull its massive 2 ton, 11 feet long steel monster...
Its historical values shoots up to an unreachable height because it was the car used by late Rt. Hon D.S.S Senanayake... He was the first Prime minister (1947 - 1952) for Sri Lanka .
This is how the Orignal Sheerline used to look like... and probably will look like after the resoration....

Now... I don't wanna be in this car!!!

I saw this at the Mag City service station - Kandy...

Yes.. its a car... to be precise its a Hyundai Accent Gls. Some GE number...

Apparently it seems that the car has rolled down a hill to a small stream some fifty feet below.... Damn... it sure is in a bad shape...

Overture of the Wicked - EP

YES!! after the long waiting... It was "Officially" released on the 4th.... even though it was floating around in the internet since April 24th (According to Wiki)

This is ALL what we expect from IE... The power packed pure brutal, heavy slab of technical Power Metal... nothing more... definitely nothing less!!! Of course the fans of ICED EARTH already know that Schaffer and Co. are something special in the world of Heavy Metal and just why some Metal-fans are wholly ignorant of their recorded output is a mystery and disgrace.

"Ten Thousand Strong" is the single track, and it will appear on "Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part 1)", albeit a bit different than the single version. - according to the IE website..-
inline with Ten thousand strong comes the "Wicked Triology" from "Something wicked this way comes" (1998) album!!!!

I first got to hear them in 1995; quite by accident I should say..... and it was one of the best accidents ever!!! loved their music... and the next year.... in 1996 - the KNOCKED me out with Dark Saga... man that was good... I'm sure that each and everyone of you who has heard it will agree.... the power... the complex arrangements, orchestrated passages, emotional interludes, huge choruses and just plain good old fashioned Heavy Metal.... How schaffer has breathed life in to a comic book... gave life and emotions to the beast with music.... was truely AWSOME!!!!! and they continued doing that...

The single - is pure evidence that IE will continue to do what they do the best... knock the bearth out of the listeners and kick them around with sound waves....

Look what I caught on cam......

This my friends is a 1975 Mitsubish Galanat - It's a third generation Galant (the present is considdered the 9th generation!!)

The stock car is supposed to have a 2ltr GTO Engine, with Mitsubishi's own unique Silent Shaft technology. This technology has been licensed out to several other automobile manufacturers offering V8 smoothness and quietness to engines with smaller configurations. But as you see in this the engine has been replaced to a diesel engine...

The air-intake on the hood is supposed to be a new addition. I don't recall the original version having that!!

At the time, the same model was introduced in US as Dodge Colt, The Plymouth Champ or the Chrysler Sigma.
Its competerion was none other than the Dodge challenger!!!!

The car was in terrible condition, interior is totally ruined!!! ... its a shame... If restored - it can be a very good looking muscle car!!!!
