The Cult could be touring again?

I wish The Cult were still touring in the U.S. They played one show in Hartford and now are off to other parts of the world. I'm watching for any dates they could play to go see them as I guessed I missed them back in March! Though, I did see them open for Metallica sometime around 1989, but Ian Astbury was a mess, out of shape and his voice was flat. The show went on for only half an hour. None of the Metallica fans that were in the seats near me wanted them onstage. Not so easy to enjoy the show back then.

The Addams Family Volume 1

I watched a little bit of The Addams Family - Volume One recently out on DVD and I am very impressed with the quality of the picture and the quality of the commentary. There is an on-camera interview with John Astin and other great special features including details about the creator of The Addams Family in print, Charles Addams. It's going for a great price that is worth every penny.
