Concerning the media page, I must announce that, due to the official policy of my university (whose server I'm using right now for this site, by the way), I will no longer be providing mp3 files on this site for the forseeable future. I apologize for this sudden notice, but I don't have the time to deal with copyright issues and threats of monetary fines and so on. I will however, be providing short video clips and promotion videos in their place, which I hope no one will be able to object to. Thank you for your understanding, and as always, please do consider purchasing legal CDs and DVDs to support your favorite music artists. Thank you.
