lunch with lang - meinl drum tv video podcast
gustav schäfer and tokio hotel winning the mtv latino awards for best song of the year

with the superdrumming festival happening there, the small city of gmunden in lovely austria will be the epicenter of the drumming world this coming weekend. celebrating their 15th anniversary, gerhard jessl and his team at the drumhouse have put together a stunning line-up. this is the place to be for us this weekend and i am really looking forward to going there tomorrow morning. some of our top guys will be playing, like thomas lang (who will also be the mc), benny greb, wolfgang haffner (both solo and with his band "acoustic shapes"), ralf gustke, felix lehrmann, and stephan maass. check out superdrumming.at  for more details. i will see some of you there maybe?

a new podcast is online, "lunch with lang. an update on thomas' recent activities". it has been filmed on september 25th at a local restaurant called "kohlenmuehle". a local restaurant with excellent food where we often go to for lunch. if you haven's subscribed to our video-podcast yet, you can do it easily on our website, (click here), or directly on iTunes. i hope you enjoy this episode of meinl-drum-tv.

the sky seems to be the limit for tokio hotel these days. after winning the mtv music awards in september (see my blog sep 10), the four musicians (including drummer and meinl artist gustav schäfer) from germany have now also won the mtv latino awards for "song of the year", and are nominated in the categories "headliner" and "best act" for the mtv europe music awards too.

this is absolutely amazing! guys, on behalf of meinl: congratulations - you deserve it!

It's really the only time a ceeibrlty gets to voice there opinion to such a wide audience I mean , other than the RNC or DMC, were they are on the news or other news stations like MSNBC, FOXNEWS, etc, where else are they going to be able to reach a younger audience? I agree with you sometimes you need a break, but other than this award show, there is no other time before the November election plus it makes them feel important, like they are doing something to offset there other shitty ceeibrlty behavior 364 days of the year

I have a theory that I need to get off my chest. I've been thnniikg about this for the past couple of days and need to hear some feedback on this.Given the current political climate, I think that it would be pretty accurate to predict that the democratic party in its current form will go the way of the whig party of the nineteenth century.Allow me to present the evidence: This theory actually is derived from David Horrowitz who stated that the democratic party has become the party of statism, no questions about it. Their party platform parallels the communist party platform and anyone who tries to come to an alternative conclusion about the party isn't examining the facts.First, consider the equal division at the DNC with the reinstatement of God and Jerusalem in the platform. The democratic party of JFK and even Bill Clinton would not take a second thought at this vote because the reasoning would appear so blatantly obvious. Yet half of the delegates voted no. This suggests to me that the days of relying on Reagan democrats to govern based on reason are over and we're looking at a completely new and divided face to the democratic party. It's only a matter of time that the few remaining Reagan democrats recognize that the new and improved Libertarian-esque Republican Party represents their views based on the common ground of faith, family, hard work, and liberty. Second, consider the fact that people identifying themselves as democrats are at an all time low for this party. 21% of people consider themselves to be Liberal whereas over 40% of people consider themselves to be conservative and/or moderate. This tells me that the most moderate individual doesn't identify with the statist agenda of the most radical Liberal. The claim has been made that it is the Republican party that has changed and become more radical but if you consider the overwhelming evidence of how much the Democratic party has changed since JFK, I'm not really sure people know why they still vote democrat anymore.Thirdly, the most obvious piece of evidence is the party platform of bigger government, higher taxes for everyone (not just the wealthy), and more debt. Something tells me that deep down inside the American culture, the people reject this message regardless of party affiliation when they are presented with all of the information available. Once the tides change, and I do believe that they inevitably will, I think a new political spectrum will be established and the Libertarian Party will emerge from the number three spot to the number two spot. Then the political argument will change from limited government vs. bigger government to limited government vs. even more limited government. And all of the marxists, socialists, communists, and anti-colonialists will no longer have a chair at the table because they contributed to the implosion of the party of Manifest Destiny, Slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, Eugenics, and finally Statism.Wouldn't this be fantastic if the issues regarding The Entitled States of America were to shift so dramatically that this era is looked upon in history as being an era of ignorance, selfishness, and irrationality much the way we look at the era of Slavery.I would much rather debate and compromise with a Gary Johnson Libertarian than to argue and concede to a Maoist Democrat.
