And the countdown has started... our new video clip online in 5 days!!!
The Omnia has landed in USA!
We (and our instruments) have happily survived the flight and we're safely at "home from home" with our American friends here in oregon!
Looking forward to playing Faerieworlds coming weekend!!
Jetlagged happy faces and greeeeeeenz!
OMNIA and friends
We're through the gate,
the harp is checked in, we are chilling at the terminal, ready to go go, see ya in Oregon.
We keep you posted!
Building a temporary Harp-Case
Yep…that is part of the life of a Pagan Musician aswell… we just recently found out that apparently we can't take our normal flight-case on the plane as we were counting on all along… because the person that arranged it made a "little mistake"…
Jenny just checked to be sure and found out… oh feck !
So now I'm feverishly building a temporary harpCase from cardboard and foam rubber and tape and rope ("feverishly" is meant quite literally because I've gotten a throat infection aswell now, so I'm floating on pain-killers and anti-biotics )… but anyway… hopefully this will keep the harp safe … and hopefully they will let us take it on the plane to the US tomorrow… it's all been arranged and all will be well!! … at least that's what we've been told (by the same person who "arranged" the flight case, so I'm still a little sceptical) we will find out tomorrow...
Oh yeah…and our van just broke down, so Jenny had to arrange for the emergency service to come and bring her and the van in the pouring rain to the garage, where it will remain for a while to be fixed in time for us when we come back from the US… We have to borrow another van to take us to the airport…
Ah well …such is life and that's the price of wanting to play real acoustic music without playback…
let's see what the morrow bringz us!
Greenthingz and Dark thoughts on this cold and wet fucking day
the Wheel of Time Rolls on...
I found an old photo for your amusement...
So... does anyone recognise this 23 year old OMNIA member?

The OMNIA crew is in the Video Too!!
check out these 3 (l to R)
-Michelle: sometimes merchbabe/camera crew...
-Damien Raven: reformed Roadie turned super-sympa merchdude...
-Chloé: our head-merchbabe for the last 5 years, who will leave OMNIA after the Castlefest 10year anniversary show...
They're Earth Warriors... how about you?
Hey MPS! You are in our video-clip too!
This weekend is an MPS festival.. and we are not there because we are packing to go to America... and we kind of miss it (especially the lovely people there!)...
But no worries we'll be back! (in two weeks time in Köln! ... right between the Wacken gig and the Castlefest gig!)
In the meantime our video is FINISHED!!! (I JUST watched it...and I'm still all goosebumpy!... this is "Sunshine-Earth-Fighting-Musick"... So you can be a radical EarthWarrior with a big smile on your face!
Of ALL the video's sent to us by fans from every major continent of this planet we have tried to use as much material as possible. All the best ones that passed our (very strict) criteria have been included... It's really cool... you'll see!
sadly a few brilliant ones were not included because they could not be imported into the main editing software due to "technical incompatibility" ...like yours Verena! :-( ...
Anyway... love life! enjoy the weekend wherever and whenever you are!
We'll be stopping by the states next weekend for all you entousiastic weirdos in Oregon... and the road goes ever on...

SooooooooHey! what is it fecking hot... my brain is melting because today I cannot go out and enjoy the gift of beautifull weather because I'm stuck in the (hot) house arranging and packing and re-packing stuff for our trip to the USA... feck... arse... bums... syphillis... snotballs... and many not so nice expletives galore... what a lot of "bother" it is just to get ourselves and our instruments safely into that country! (really... travelling with a band of freaks to America?!... you have NO idea!)
Anyway... this is sort of bugging me a bit and I'm feeling a little demotivated...
(hence the picture I just took of the other thing that's bugging me , which is this rather pretty fly... although I'm sure that the fly doesn't mean it as a pointless exercise in deploying weird rules and confusing phonecalls with embassy's and airlines and listening to "on hold" machines that play fiendishly bad muzak which most certainly was written by a suicidal Dante fan trapped in the lowest reaches of Hell where they attempt to bore you to death with wall paper coloured excrement or some other such tedious yet disgusting matter...
going to the states is cool... but
sometimes, beautifull things can be annoying aswell... like this fly.
the Poor organisers in Oregon must be going up the wall aswell by now ......"you allrrrright there Emilio!? ;-)"
So... OMNIA FANS OUT THERE!!
Please give us Faerieworlds some motivation to keep us from breaking down and crying in a heap on the floor...
Are YOU going to Faerieworlds in OREGON?
do YOU know somebody who is going there?
How happy are YOU going to be to see us there?
Make us all as enthousiastic as possible and we will see this bureaucratic torture out to the end for YOU!
so that we may still fly to the US and play for YOU there!!
So... DO YOU want to help OMNIA get to the US?
SSS & OMNIA&the Bug
DEATH SINGS! (on the Earth Warrior video!)
Our friend DEATH was also dancing on our stage last weekend
(during the song "Dance untill we Die" ofcourse!)
Which was a great honour for us and "JOLLY GOOD FUN" for him too!!
As you can see from this movie-still he will also be strutting his bony stuff on our upcoming video clip
(99% done now!)
release date 29th of July!
as Jenny just finished reading mr.Pratchett's "Reaper man" for the 3rd time I thought this picture was appropriate for today ;-)
