Greta!


I'm finally going to have a black cat! Isn't she sweet?
I won't get her for about a month. She has to get her shots and get "fixed."
I even got up the courage to tell Michael about her.

I Love My Firefox!


Oh. yes! Firefox has an add on for everything.

Snaplinks helps me to level everyone's adoptables much more quickly.
Measure It keeps me from violating signature size limits on forums.
Ad Block Plus keeps those nasty Google ads away!
I can paint my Last.FM page purple if I want to, thanks to Stylish.
Personas lets me view the web in a browser that looks like this:

But the best add on EVER is Desroy the Web!
OMG! It turns any webpage into a game, a SHOOTING GAME!
I'm thoroughly enjoying myself shooting up the webpages of people I don't like!

Rating: 2/10

Tracklisting
1. Raised On Rock
2. Sting In The Tail
3. Slave Me
4. The Good Die Young
5. No Limit
6. Rock Zone
7. Lorelei
8. Turn You On

11. The Best Is Yet To Come

"We want to end the Scorpions' extraordinary career on a high note."
~ Klaus Meine

Sorry, Klaus, but this album is an epic FAIL!
I expected so much better than this. The riffs sound recycled. The lyrics are uninspired. The rockers sound like a desperate attempt to recapture the glory of Rock You Like a Hurricane. The ballads are, in a word, boring. Adding a guest female vocalist on The Good Die Young was, to me the ultimate musical sacrilege. Your final album should be yours, and yours alone. The only track on this album that I found to be memorable was Raised on Rock, the single track that was realeased before the album. Even it sounded a bit recycled...

What more can I say? If this is the best the guys can do, perhaps it is a good thing that this is their final album.
