  1. They've been touring a lot, and their latest album was released in 2012, so if a new one will be released this year will make a 3 years gap, they had longer periods between released before (5 years of silence between 2003 and 2008 albums). They released a 3 songs cover EP in 2014, though, with 2 Bad Religion and 1 Pennywise cover songs. Yes the hype they're creating with this song is probably bigger than what it should be, but I love them so the "I hope the song will fulfill the expectation" thing some fan came up with is something I don't care about. I'm open to new sounds so I don't need them to be "sounding like that record" or "like the good old times". People grow up and evolve so it's their music. I like everything they do. But specifically this whole artwork thing is funny, and it sure works in creating hype!
  2. On January 30th American Punk Rock band The Offspring will release a new song titled "Coming For You", and starting from January 8th they began to hype fans with artworks featuring the band's famous Flaming Skull logo, often with quotes from the song's lyrics (and maybe other songs' lyrics for an upcoming album, no further infos have been released yet), including these 3 John Williams scored movies. I'm hoping for Indiana Jones (and possibly Jurassic Park too) in this week left!
  3. Probably not (also because most tattoo artists "practice" on themselves, in addition to obviously have a passion for tattoos) but I have a friend who makes tattoos since a couple of years and when he tattooed me he was less inked than me!
  4. Not as much as being close-minded, prejudiced and disrespectful to other people's opinions.
  5. Well, that's a pretty close-minded point of view. Tattoos are not trendy nor new, it's something that has been done for millenniums. If someone gets a tattoo because "it's trendy" just to to copy someone else it's just stupid and a lack of personality. I see tattoos as a type of art, not much different from a painting exposed in a museum. It's something painted on your skin. I like colors so I like to get a bit of colors on me, paying tribute to some of my lifetime passions. It's obviously all personal, not exhibitionism, I'd never tattoo something I don't love or believe in. If one don't like tattoos I respect that (my Mom doesn't like them, she's annoyed every time I get a new one but in the end she respect my life and my point of view too), but it's definitely not something that's "popular these days".
  6. Pain of course is personal, but I never felt any minimum pain at all while getting tattooed. There are more sensitive body parts in which are easier too feel something, though.
  7. I voted for "I have multiple tattoos", and I don't have piercings, I don't like them. I came here because I was curious to know if anyone has a John Williams (or any other composer) tribute tattoo. Since a lot of months I'm wondering about getting one, I'd really love to get on and someday I will, because John Williams is an important part of my life, though I never had any good idea to use for inspiration. I was thinking about a music notation with the first notes of the Raiders March (as a combination tribute to Indiana Jones, John Williams and Music in general) but never saw one that I really like. I'd like to have a little wavy effect like this rather than a straight one like this Any suggestion?
  8. Yes I think Elvis Presley might be a good comparison. I don't like his music (apart some few famous songs), and I don't care how bizarre is the way he died, but it's clear how big it's the impact he left on the Music world, even after so many years after his death (same with Beatles and later John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Bob Marley, Kurt Cobain, ect)...you may like or not like his music, but he has been great, without a doubt. Now if you think about it, it's been so many years since we haven't heard about Michael Jackson for his music alone (well, apart his last record which was irrilevant and really far from his golden days), but unfortunately for his troubles and problems. But still, his music has never been forgot and never will. That happens only to Icons, no metter what some "extras" might there be along with it. I didn't get the Jackie Chan similarity, though. Well, he's great in his industry, he'll be remembered as an icon, a great actor and master of martial arts...but why Jackie himself? Bruce Lee seems more fitting if my interpretation's right.
  9. Happy birthday Marc and thanks to those who said the same for me.
  10. I agree with this. I never really liked him as a person, but there's absolutely no doubt of how he has been a great artist. He has really been the "King of Pop" in his best years, it's too bad that he went to such a decline. Respect to a great artist, may he finally rest in peace now I also think that censorship is one of the worst walls that still resist in this world (at least this virtual one, the internet) that should be free and open to anyone's different opinion. That's so bad.
  11. After a two weeks wait, this morning I finally got my Christmas gift: the Indiana Jones Sountrack Boxset. Definitely something that should be discussed deeper in this board. You guys are so superficial!
  12. Probably he's just a last-minute fan... Yeah Mark I guessed that it was only on the mp3s these few extra tracks, since it exceeded the 80 minutes limit...
  13. Which is ? The part referred to Crystal Skull... I didn't know that even a couple of tracks on Crystal Skull were expanded...or it's just on the boot (since it exceed the 80 minutes limit)? The sound quality is great, though. Even if I waited years for all of this, I'm too much curious and could resist and got the mp3s...it will help me untill I buy the actual box-set.
  14. Ahahah...I just started listening to the interviews and it sounded sooo familiar...guess what, it's the same interview of the 2003 Bonus DVD!!! Well at least there's something new towards the end... The rest of the set is just awesome, I'm still not completely realizing that this is all true...I dreamed this for so many years that it's so weird that it's finaly happened...listening expecially to Last Crusade...finally high quality music after many many years of listening the same music in low quality!!
  15. I know he's the best, but I e-mailed him and he's not selling his prop replicas anymore...
