KISS Fragrance

KISS Fragrance for men and women……..why?

Here’s the official news from KISSonline:

Over the next few weeks KISSONLINE will bring you new KISS Fragrance product photos and info on various promotions that will celebrate the release of the KISS Fragrance line! Pictured here are the women’s and men’s KISS fragrance bottles. The countdown begins! Only 20 days left until KISS Fragrances are rockin’ the following retailers: BELK, BOSCOVS, DILLARDS, GOTTCHALKS, PARISIANS, ULTA and VIRGIN MEGA STORES (Selective Sizes). Visit each store for different promotional events and public appearances by GENE SIMMONS!

Again I ask………why? Will this actually sell? Is it necessary? Shouldn’t the priority be a new album, getting Ace back, or maybe some vintage KISS audio or video?

If it wasn’t for Paul’s new album dropping soon, I’d be really pissed!

Some major new releases have come out between last Tuesday (8/15) and today and I’ve been forced to hold off buying them for fear someone already bought them for my birthday.

Never happened, no CDs this year…..but plenty of gift cards to Newbury Comics (local shop)!

Armed with a gift card and some loose cash, I packed the kids in the car and headed of to the shop to buy 2 things: the new Iron Maiden single and Mastodon – Leviathan.

Did I get them? No…..they only got 1 copy of the Maiden single and they were out of Mastodon.

Two notable releases of the last week were still on sale:

  • Slayer – Christ Illusion – $12
  • Lamb Of God – Sacrament – $10

…..but I passed and I’m still kicking myself. Here’s what I snagged:

  1. The SwordAge Of Winters ($13): I’ve read glowing reviews in print and online so I took the plunge.
  2. .38 SpecialTour De Force ($4 used): Needed this to complete the .38 Special collection. Used to have a dubbed copy back in the day.
  3. Alice CooperKiller, Love It To Death, and School’s Out ($8 each): Filling major holes in the Alice collection…..8 bucks for new sealed discs ain’t bad.
  4. Rainbow - Live In Munich 1977 DVD ($12)

I almost pulled the trigger on the four Motorhead remasters I still need and that special edition Queen – A Night At The Opera keeps calling my name. The Sword has been on the list to buy since I read their review in Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the most anticipated purchase that was also released today:

Madden 07 (for Playstation 2) ($50) – Football is year round for me but the season always officially starts for me when I fire up the new Madden. My kids usually get me the new version for my birthday but, this year, it came out a week late (my birthday was the 16th).
