For any of you who don’t know, I’m a pretty big Muse fan and in the last couple of days there’s been a fairly big development regarding their upcoming Album ‘The Resistance’.
Yesterday at 11 AM, the band relaunched their official website to include all new info, pics and user areas. Today a much bigger web-presence has begun.
Project Eurasia is a worldwide treasure hunt related to the band (and presumably to their new track ‘United States Of Eurasia’). You can get your first clue right now at ununitedeurasia.muse.mu . The clue seems to point to a location in Paris with a time of 10-12 tomorrow. The first person to find the ‘Eurasia agent’ there tomorrow will win 2 tickets to see the band and be the first to recieve the next clue!
We don’t know where this treasure hunt is leading exactly, but I’m pleased that the band (or their management) are putting effort into this. It’s nice to see some original marketing for a new album.
Get involved in the project now over at the Eurasia mini-site.

So I’ve just got back from a week in Italy (the second week this year! hehe!). This time it was Sorrento I visited, to the west of the country.
It’s a location with so much history on it’s doorstep. Visible from just about everywhere in the resort is Mount, Vesuvius (I’m sure you’ve all heard the story about that one!). Near that is obviously the ruined cities of Pompeii and Herculanium and just a short (well 3 hour) trip away is the capital city Rome.
I was lucky enough to visit all these places whilst there. It was very special seeing the ruins of Pompeii and the volcano that caused it all. Many of you (myself included) probably learnt all about the story of Pompeii at school and were fascinated by it, so I can’t stress enough what it’s like to actually see it.
More amazing though was the city of Rome. So much of it is still from the Roman times, more than I thought! The Forum is absolutely massive and is a great walk of historic Roman monuments. All around the city you’ll find statues of Roman leaders littering the streets. And then of course there is the Colosseum which is MASSIVE. It’s an amazing structure now, so it must have been quite incredible back in Roman times.
Rome is also home to the Vatican, the home of the Catholic church. St. Peters Square is another brilliant sight. The Basilica, Sistene Chapel and of course the home of the Pope are also all here. It’s quite something to take in.
Sorrento itself is a city of two halves, there’s the inner city which is manic and shows off typical Italian life. And then there’s the coast line which is brilliantly picturesque, once again a great sight to see.
This is the second time I’ve been to Italy and I loved it. It’s a great country to visit in every way with perhaps the only downside being the heat can sometimes be too much (as shocking as it seems!).
But of course the real reason I love Italy… everywhere sells PIZZA!!

Hey everyone, long time no see (and I know that’s my fault!!)
Just a quick line to let you all know that you can now look at my Facebook page (if you wish) much quicker and easier. I’ve jumped on the bandwagon and registered my username thus creating the brand new webpage www.facebook.com/chrisbheath .
It’s exactly the same as it always was (just FB copying Twitter again really) but should make it easier for you to find out what I’m up to (scary or what!)
As for the RHP, trust me, haven’t forgotten about this blog, I’ve just been very pressed for time recently (unfortunately that’s unlikely to change 😦 ), but I have been coming up with new ideas for the site. So thanks again for looking (I know a lot of you do) and I’ll get back to posting ASAP!
