"A new decade, and more importantly a new year", or "My 2010 list"

So being born in 1992 means I just lived my first full decade. It is now 2010, which means I should write a review or something on the last decade.

I will not.

So, what’s about this new year? Lots of amazing stuff to look forward to, so I decided to become a tr00 blogger and release a nice list for 2010.

  • Music
    • Progressive power metal band Kamelot release their ninth (!) album on March 22 and visits Sweden in April.
    • Tobias Sammets metal project Avantasia release two new albums on April 3 – Angel of Babylon and The Wicked Symphony – the sequel to the tale of the Scarecrow.
    • Also symphonic metal act Within Temptation release an album, totally different from their earlier work – more band, less orchestra, heavier, dirtier. Or something along those lines.
    • And Tarja (ex-Nightwish) release her third studio album What Lies Beneath.
    • Speaking of Nightwish, it is rumoured that they finally got permission to release their cover of Michael Nyman’s The Heart Asks Pleasure First. A single/EP, perhaps?
    • And their current singer Anette Olzon is soon finished with her solo debut album. I’m really, really curious and scared.
  • TV
    • Number one: THE RETURN OF FUTURAMA! The fifth season begins on June 10. I AM REALLY EXCITED! Will it be a success or will it blow like Paris Hilton on scary videos?
    • Lost is coming to an end. And I am really wondering how they are supposed to end this. I also wonder how the season premiere will start – the season finale SPOILER ended with the Island being blown up by an H-bomb. SPOILER STOP.
    • Heroes goes on. One of the best shows, still going strong in the fourth season.
    • And The Simpsons begins the 22nd season. Still going strong, but I still find difficulty ranking it as high as everything pre-season eleven.
  • Film
    • Lots of great stuff here as well, but the one I’m looking the most forward to must be Tim Burton’s adaption of Alice in Wonderland. Seems like awesomeness.
    • Harry Potter 7.1. The first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released for cinema this summer. Being the best of the novels, I really hope for it being the best of the movies as well. Honestly, the latest one wasn’t good at all.
  • Literature
    • Stephen King is working on two new novels:
      • The Wind Through the Keyhole – the new Dark Tower novel. The Dark Tower is one of my favorite book series ever, no matter the genre. This new book will be telling stories of the lesser characters, and will be set between the fourth and fifth novel (Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla).
      • Doctor Sleep, the sequel of The Shining after a 33 year old gap. According to King: “Danny is now 40 years old and living in upstate New York, where he works as the equivalent of an orderly at a hospice for the terminally ill. Danny’s real job is to visit with patients who are just about to pass on to the other side, and to help them make that journey with the aid of his mysterious powers.”

ONE HELL OF A YEAR!

PS. That was just my longest post title ever. DS.
