My Own Prison

Hi, my name is Roshan, 33, and I live with my parents in an apartment.

More and more I am begining to think that I will never get out of this prison that I am in. My life is heading out to work and comin back home exhausted and going into my room. Money problems. Even though I’ve got a decent hike (not as much as I should have been getting) it seems that the moment I save money, some need will be coming out. That Blackberry Curve I was saving up for is getting further and further away.

Will I ever get out? I can’t live my life this way. All I have is my computer, music and the internet. I want my own place, not too big, a 2 bedroom place so I can use one room to store books & keep a mini office, a hall big enough for a couch, some chairs and a nice tv with cable, a shelf for keeping knick-knacks. A queen-sized comfy bed.

I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

Ronnie James Dio Has Cancer

Former Black Sabbath & Rainbow singer Ronnie James Dio has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. The heavy metal rocker was due to begin a tour across Europe with his band Dio last week but he was forced to call off the trek after doctors told him he must begin treatment to combat the disease.

The 67 year old is confident he’ll be able to beat the cancer – and he’s promised fans he’ll make a triumphant stage return once he’s healthy again.

A statement released to from his wife and manager Wendy reads, “Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans. Long live rock and roll, long live Ronnie James Dio. Thanks to all the friends and fans from all over the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.”

I sure hope he does – at 67 he is just 3 years younger than my dad and he’s still rocking hard! Long live Ronnie!
