It just feels like so much has gone wrong in about the last fifteen or so years. There were so many things I was looking forward to, from the time I really started following Jim's work, through this website and others, like "Batman" (wow Tim Burton directing too), "Dance of the Vampires" opening on Broadway and Michael Crawford's going to be the lead (as if this won't be massive), Jim's writing a "Garbo" musical in Sweden, they're going to make an album called "Bat out of Nashville", Omg Meat and Jim are actually going to get together to make "Bat out of Hell 3", I don't know what's more exciting, that or "Batman". I don't mean to be negative..but flash forward to the reality there, and there were just so many disappointments.

I was talking about "Tanz" the other day. I'll just quote this then:
Welcome, brethren
Once again we are here
At this very ball
Where we gathered last year
And that was so disappointing
That it just made us mope
But remember I told you
You must not give up hope
Next year I promised
You would revel and cheer

A bit of creative license with the "year" but you get the picture. That certainly seems to be true now. I just wanted Jim and us and myself to experience something like this again, and also personally because I never really experienced it while I was a "fully aware" Jim fan. I was finding out about it all when he was massive, in like 1998 and 1999. I'm experiencing first hand NOW what it must have been like for someone my age NOW back in 1993, who'd been following since 1978 or whenever.

So really, really cool. Course, I'm still cautious and all, but between these reviews and the 25,000 so far, I think I can rest assured at this point that DOTV it ain't!
