Okay, it's been a while... Things have been quite busy in the
world of Mel since returning from Finland. I'm definitely quite happy
be back in the land of sun sand and surf after two cold months in
the land of Santa Claus! I'd like to thank my friend Jake Lindstrom
for his hospitality and friendship during my Finnish stay!
What's up with music? I have rejoined my friends from Raven
Mad in their tribute to Megadeth, Hangar 18. While Raven Mad has not
reformed, I still hold to the idea that one of these days, we're
going to throw in a Raven Mad song for kicks. It's wonderful to be
back among friends.
And to answer the question that's on everyone's lips, no I have not
rejoined The Iron Maidens since my return. I had left the band to go
to Finland, and they filled the position after my departure. I still
regard the band as dear freinds, and you never know when they'll need
:) You'll definitely catch me at their shows singing along and supporting
the merry maids of iron.
I am on the quest for an original metal band. I'm looking for a working,
serious, dedicated original classic/traditional, power, or thrashy
metal band for world domination, preferably in the Los Angeles area.
E-mail me at mel at raven-mad dot com.
What else is up? I'm back working at Pomona College, providing
tech support to the esteemed faculty, including some of my former
professors and advisors. It is soooooo good to be back at the alma
Wow, Melz Homepage has an all-new look! I'm still redesigning
the old content and creating new content, so please pardon my dust and
keep checking back!
Operation:SelfQuest continues... I'm still in Finland and starting
to understand what the word "cold" actually means. Today I
noticed that there was no "high noon". The sun rose in midmorning
and made it halfway up the sky before settling back down into the horizon;
it's a strange feeling, to realize where exactly on the globe lie your
feet! I am anticipating returning to the US on November 19th.
