Why I don't spend more time promoting my own band on my own personal site escapes me.
It's Black Friday 2009 as I post this and what else might you expect, but yet another sales pitch.
First up is NORTH COAST NOEL, an eclectic mix of holiday and Christmas music including folk, rock, reggae, metal, and more.
Various Cleveland area artists, as well as artists from New York and Pennsylvania joined together to donate their time to the production of "NORTH COAST NOEL", a compilation CD of traditional and popular holiday and Christmas music. The CD, which encompasses a variety of styles and genres, was produced in 2001 order to raise money for The Salvation Army World Trade Center Disaster Relief Fund.
This CD contains great renditions of Little Drummer Boy performed by Alexis Antes and Robin Stone, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree performed by Myrtle, the cult classic Enter Snowman by Selloutica (the story of Frosty the Snowman done to the tune of Metallica's Enter Sandman), Blue Christmas by Eroc and Walkin' Cane, and much more. I still think this one of the finest projects I have ever had the pleasure of doing.
This year, the hard copy CD is being offered at my Rigel Records website for the ridiculously low price of only $2.50 w/free shipping until the end of the year!
Next is Temple 8 - Enter the Temple. If you like progressive rock and progressive metal similar to the likes of Rush, Dream Theater, Tool, and A Perfect Circle, then you'll probably dig Temple 8. Only $5.00 w/free shipping from now until the end of the year.
Finally, I have XOR - Victrola, a small collection of original tunes inspired by a variety of diverse classic rock icons. Only $2.50 w/free shipping from now until the end of the year.

PROSECUTOR TO HOMESCHOOLERS: NO COMPROMISE—YOU’RE GOING TO JAIL!
Juergen and Rosemary Dudek of Archfeldt, Germany, were sentenced to 90 days in prison in July 2008 because they homeschool their children. Their sentence was overturned by an appeals court because of a legal error, and a new trial was ordered. Their new trial began November 16. German news reports indicate the judge appears disposed to seek a compromise. But prosecutor Herwig Mueller has vowed to appeal any sentence that does not include jail time for these parents, who have been in the spotlight for years because of their insistence on homeschooling. This was the same prosecutor who appealed the lower court sentence of only a fine, saying to the family, “You don’t have to worry about the fine because I will send you to jail.”
The new trial was continued to next week after more than seven hours of testimony. This included an outburst by Mr. Mueller when Mr. Dudek asked the local school officials if they knew the current laws that criminalize homeschoolers were based on laws from 1938. Mr. Mueller loudly protested: “All those Nazi laws have been suspended, and this one is democratic, and you’ve got to accept it, and that’s it.” Mr. Dudek disagrees. “The ‘schuhlpflicht’—the laws that require school attendance—are on the books in the German states,” he explained, “and have been traced back to the ‘Reichsculpflicht Gesetz’ [federal compulsory attendance laws] which was passed in 1938. Except for the removal of references to the Nazi party, these laws are identical or substantially the same as the laws passed by Hitler’s government, criminalizing parents who keep their children home for school.”
Remember, Hitler believed in “get ’em while they’re young.”
