Hartman lands Simmons, Stanley for ‘OddParents

By Chris M. Junior

While working on a three-part, prime-time Fairly OddParents special, creator/executive producer Butch Hartman and head writer Scott Fellows had a big decision to make concerning a plot point involving main character Timmy Turner.

'Timmy was going to find this wand, and we needed a guardian for the wand,' Hartman said earlier this week. 'And we were thinking, ‘Who could guard this wand — a metal dude? What if it was a rock band, like [the wand] was guitar? That would be kind of cool.

Hartman and Fellows, both longtime Kiss fans, considered creating a Kiss-like band for this...

CITY COUNCIL VOTES FOR WORLD'S HOTTEST BAND

By David Helwig SooToday.com

The following really, really, really, really important resolution about KISS was passed at tonight's meeting of Sault Ste. Marie City Council.

From what we could see, the vote was unanimous.

Even Ward Four Councillor Lou Turco, known for questionable taste in music and neckties, voted for it.

'What do they sing?' Turco was heard asking afterward.

************************** Mover: Councillor T. Sheehan

Seconder: Councillor O. Grandinetti

Whereas the Essar Centre in Sault Ste. Marie has been a venue for some awesome bands; and

Whereas these concerts have provided fantastic emtertainment for the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie and provided a boon to the local economy as people have travelled long distances to our City for them; and

Whereas 'the hottest band in the world, KISS,' will tour this fall in the first-ever fan-routed tour which will take votes straight from people via the Internet on which cities they will play;

Now therefore be it resolved that people be encouraged to vote for Sault Ste. Marie, Canada on www.kissonline.com

ARTIST USES FACE FOR CANVAS
KISS AND MAKE-UP

By TIM SPANTON

ARTIST James Kuhn faces up to a new challenge every day. For the wacky painter uses his own mug as a canvas for a new image every 24 hours.

For 365 days running, James painted everything from a juicy hamburger and a bunch of bananas to a weightlifter on his mug.

James, 47, admits: 'The worst bit is painting the inside of my nostrils because I end up spitting out the colour for hours.' Famous figures the American has painstakingly daubed on to his face includes rock legends KISS (pictured).

James, from Three Oaks, Michigan, was inspired to be an artist by the work of Picasso.

He says: 'I have become obsessed with face painting. I think about what I can do next all the time.'

FAN'S CARACAS REVIEW

KISS made Venezuela shudder!

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to be present in one of the most impressive concerts ever present in our country. The hard rock KISS made Venezuela shudder.

It was on April 17th, a day that will be part of history for being magical and full of energy. An energy that held since very early hours of the morning and even more, as many of us may not have slept for days in anticipation, longing every minute for seeing the hottest band of the world.

A big black curtain with the word KISS printed in silver letters hid what was behind it, 4 blinding stars that invited us to rock and let our emotions...

FAN'S CARACAS REVIEW
WE WANTED THE BEST AND WE GOT IT!!

An Unforgettable KISS, set Caracas on Fire!



The Kiss concert in Caracas, Venezuela last Friday night was an experience out of this world, it was mind blowing...Words cannot express how it was like to be there at the stadium seeing, enjoying, breathing, and feeling KISS ALIVE!! During the show we had everything, since flames, explosions, fireworks,smoke, blood and even the rain decided to join us for a few minutes. The atmosphere was pure, exquisite, and raw rock and roll, we wanted the best and we got it!!

Definitely it was beyond my wildest dreams. A night that will always remain in my heart, a dream come true!2 hours and half of an impeccable display of sound, an amazing talent, greatness and perfection.. Plus the charisma of one of the best front man ever in rock history, Mr Paul Stanley, who kept during the whole show an incredible chemistry with the audience.One of the highlights for me was having Paul flying all over me, that was the most surreal moment of my life, he looked like coming out from a magazine and suddenly there he was all glamorous and stylish with his big boots in front of me singing Love Gun. I felt like I was inside of a DVD or something.

The whole show was filled with a great vibe, heat and a fantastic energy and adrenaline,the heaven got on fire and so we all did!! And to make the night even more memorable, they played with the help of the audience Forever, it was very moving, I was certainly one of the people screaming for it hehe..

Thank you so much KISS from coming to our country, much appreciated, hope to see you soon again. You made me feel what is like to be alive, and its awesome! I LOVE YOU! *hands down* We cant get enough from you!!

*kisses*

DEMAND !
KISS FANS PUT SAULT IN RUNNING

by Frank Dobrovnik

Cdr. Paul Berlingieri of Kiss Army headquarters, Sault Ste. Marie division, was 'ecstatic' when his favourite rockers announced they would conduct their upcoming summer and fall tour based on the whims of their fans.

'I figured there must be a way to get people to vote,' said Berlingieri, who in real life is a 33-year-old elementary school teacher.

In what is believed to be the first-ever 'fan-directed tour,' Kiss is literally asking their fans to tell them where to go, 'whether they have to play a big city like Detroit or a corn field in Iowa,' he said.

That was two weeks ago. Berlingieri's ecstasy turned to something else in the following days as he logged on to kissonline.com and, despite his most diligent voting efforts, watched Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., linger around the bottom end of the top 200 cities. All that changed this week. He and a friend contacted Trevor Zachary, marketing and events manager for the Essar Centre, who spread the word.

By mid-Monday, the Sault was closer to the top 100; by Tuesday morning, it had cracked the Top 10. An apparent frenzy of voting leapfrogged it to No. 3 by 3:30 p. m.

The Sault is surrounded mostly by much larger centres, most Canadian.

Winnipeg has topped the list from the beginning, followed Tuesday by Oshawa, Kingston. After the Sault, Calgary, Toronto, Dallas, Peterborough, Ottawa and Edmonton round out the list.

Votes are weighted on a per-capita basis, so Belingieri is confident the Sault is on the map for a typical 20-to 25-city tour.

But even he couldn't have predicted 'we'd get up there that fast. I guess I didn't realize how many closet fans there are out there.'

Though the city boasts a 'strong nucleus' of fans it's not a hotbed of Kiss Army members, he said. Rather, he thinks the typical resident is attracted to the idea of seeing the spectacle that Kiss has become known for in its 35-year career.

'I think Kiss has been around so long that everybody knows about them and their fantastic stage show. It's a show you have to see at least once in your life.'
