VIRGIN/EMI RESPONDS TO JARED'S LETTER ON BILLBOARD [Aug. 18th, 2008 | 11:00 pm]
Thirty Seconds to Mars Russian Community

Leto makes various claims in his posting, stating that the band were unhappy that they had sold two million albums yet were "still $1.4 million in debt" and that the "next record we make will be used to pay off that old supposed debt."

However, it is understood that EMI will cite its funding of 30 Seconds To Mars' tours and videos, directed by Leto, as evidence of a major financial contribution to the band's career.

Explaining the band's withdrawal from the contract, Jared Leto wrote: "We had been signed to our record contract for nine years. Basically, under California law, where we live and signed our deal, one cannot be bound to a contract for more than seven years. This is widely known by all the record companies and has been for years. In fact, so aware of it are they that they desperately try to make deals outside of California whenever possible. It is a law that protects people from lengthy, unfair, career-spanning contracts. This law also gave us the legal right to explore other possible opportunities.

"Yes we have been sued by EMI. But NOT for failing to deliver music or for 'quitting.' We have been sued by the corporation quite simply because roughly 45 days ago we exercised our legal right to terminate our old, out of date contract, which, according to the law is null and void. We terminated for a number of reasons, which we won't go into here (we'd rather not air any dirty laundry) but basically our representatives could not get EMI to agree to make a fair and reasonable deal."

An EMI spokeswoman said in statement, "EMI's relationship with 30STM has been extremely rewarding and successful for both the band and the company. The hard work of EMI's global team and of the band has resulted in sales of three million albums and singles, multiple awards and a growing, global fan base.

"However, we have been forced to take procedural, legal steps in order to protect EMI's investment and rights during contract renegotiations initiated by the band and management. We hope to resolve these matters amicably and put them behind us so we can continue working in partnership with the band to take them to even greater levels of success."

In his posting, Leto added that the band was unhappy that most of the employees it worked with at Virgin and EMI had left the company as a result of the major's restructuring under chairman Guy Hands. "It is hardly the same company we have known," he wrote.

EMI did not respond to specific claims by Leto that the major intended to place advertisements on its official Web site and that it wanted ownership of the band's master recordings in perpetuity.

опаньки :( [Aug. 16th, 2008 | 05:50 pm]

Hardcore 30 Seconds to Mars fans aren't the only ones who want more of the band's music. Virgin Records has sued the group for $30 million, saying they have failed to deliver enough music.

Virgin Records sued the band and frontman Jared Leto in Los Angeles on Friday, claiming they refused to deliver three albums as required by its contract.

The band's last album, "A Beautiful Lie," was released in 2005.

A publicist for Leto, who is also an actor and starred in "Requiem for a Dream," could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.

According the lawsuit, the band "repudiated" a 1999 contract on July 4.

Despite the absence of a new album, the band's hit "From Yesterday" was deemed one of 2007's Top 10 "Hot Modern Rock Songs" by Billboard magazine.

как сомодератор данного сообщества я прошу прошения за временное затишье у нас тут. мы постараемся исправиться. правда ведь?

теперь к делу.
началось голосование MTV VMA'08 Best Rock Video & Video Of The Year. ABL представлен в обеих. это борьба за то, чтобы быть номинированными, конкурентов достойных много.
голосование закончится 14 августа в 22:00 (Мск). насколько я поняла, засчитывается только один голос в каждой номинации, но ничто не мешает тыкать на кнопочку VOTE сколько хочешь - так, на всякий случай ;)

Про камень [Jun. 10th, 2008 | 10:27 pm]

Скопировано с сообщества РЭ:

"Дорогие марсиане,нашему камушку грозит опасность!
сегодня звонила в фирму,насчет покрытия камня новым слоем лака(для сохранения автографа)...
На меня накричали...и сказали ,что наш камень ДЕФОРМИРУЮТ! ибо ОН портит моральный облик Арбата и.т.д.
Им уже заинтересовалась префектура района,вернее надписями рядом с ним...и требует его удалить!
Нам дали отсрочку!ЕСЛИ ЖЕ НАДПИСИ И РИСУНКИ РЯДОМ С КАМНЕМ НЕ ПРЕКРАТЯТСЯ,ЕГО УДАЛЯТ С АРБАТА(и мы потеряем наше место паломничества)
Поэтому,давайте бережно относиться к камню и отрывать руки тем,кто все же решится оставить надпись с ошибками про нашу любимую группу...
P.S. нам запретили покрывать камень еще одним слоем лака+заниматься самодеятельностью,ибо тогда камень будет отличаться от других камней на Арбате!"

Это, конечно, прямого отношения к группе не имеет, но у нас тут вроде сонного царства, так что пусть будет))

концерт примечателен многим. помимо того, что вернулись они туда примерно через три месяца после последнего сольника и того, что зал был рассчитан на 8 тыщ, было главное - они сыграли praying for a riot &... FALLEN!!!
ну и тут мне на глаза попались довольно качественные видео ;)
