I’m writing to you from a long but comfy flight from Tokyo to Budapest.
Japan was incredible as it always is. We had quite an adventure.
We have lots of traveling ahead of us from Budapest to Tel Aviv to Krakow to Vienna to Holland to Mexico City and finally to New York to start our US Tour!
Excited to see everyone in the US and looking forward to the VMAs in our home town of Los Angeles on Sept 12th.
Thank you so much to everyone who is voting relentlessly. Its time to show the world the mighty force of the ECHELON!!! Don’t forget to ice those sore knuckles and strech yer wrists. This is serious buiz!!!
The video for our new single, CLOSER TO THE EDGE finally premieres in the USA this week, too!!! Check it out the big fancy US myspace debut on …
And remember to VOTE UNTIL YOUR FINGERS BLEED!!!!!
These pieces of wood with writing on them in this picture are called Ema. They are wishes, prayers and gratitudes from thousands of people that come to visit at one of the Temples here in Tokyo. It was a very special place. Japan is full of tradition while at the same time pushing the envelope with style and technology.
We fly a lot. I have noticed that I spend most of my time up in the air staring out of an airplane window looking at clouds and forgetting where I just was, and where I’m headed. I know that it seems like quite a petty thing to complain about seeing as most people would love to be able to travel as much as we do, but I have to say, it can really make your head spin after a while. I suppose the moral of the story is that when I start to feel like bitching about it, I should just remember to be grateful for the opportunity to see the world in the way I get to. Its been a long year and it has been filled with amazing adventures so far and yet it seems as though the best ones are still to come.
4 VMA nominations, I still can’t believe it. An arena tour through the UK and Europe that is all but completely sold out. These are the types of things I should be focusing on, not the fact that I miss being home for more than 5 days in a row. Ah, listen to me bitch. I’m the luckiest person on earth and sometimes I just need to remember that. Thanks for listening.
Kaisa of Finland recently sported her incredible and colorful hawk at Provinssirock, later rocking it on stage for Kings and Queens! Do YOU have a MarsHawk? Send your photo, name, and location to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured in the next installment of Transmission!
This week’s Triad Global Assault shot comes courtesy of Echelon Slovakia!
Meanwhile, Echelon Poland hit the streets of Warsaw with their self-made promo materials! If you have pictures or video from your own street team missions, please send links to email@example.com .
Weekly Picks from the Band
Book of the Week
Rabbit, Run is a novel by John Updike, and depicts five months in the life of a 26-year-old former high school basketball player named Harry ‘Rabbit’ Angstrom, and his attempts to escape the constraints of his life. It spawned several sequels, including Rabbit Redux, Rabbit Is Rich and Rabbit At Rest, as well as a related 2001 novella, Rabbit Remembered.
Movie of the Week
12 Angry Men is a 1957 American drama film adapted from a teleplay of the same name by Reginald Rose. Directed by Sidney Lumet, the film tells the story of a jury made up of 12 men as they deliberate the guilt or innocence of a defendant on the basis of reasonable doubt. The film is notable for its almost exclusive use of one set: the entire movie takes place in the jury room. The total time spent outside of the jury room is eight minutes, out of the full 96 minutes of the movie.
Album of the Week
OK Computer is the third studio album by English alternative rock band Radiohead. Although most of the music is dominated by guitar, OK Computer’s expansive sound and wide range of influences set it apart from many of the Britpop and alternative rock bands popular at the time, and it laid the groundwork for Radiohead’s later, more experimental work.
Restaurant of the Week
Not many cafés can claim to be amongst the very best coffee makers in Melbourne, if not Australia but CNF can! Their customers love good food, wine and coffee and CNF delivers all these to strictly maintained high standards.
