    Game of Thrones

    You're both right. To get them so far south would be pretty difficult though (they'd have to convince everyone there), but it would be easy to take over The Twins and prepare for the battle there, since Arya demolished the entirety of House Frey. They should've thought of that from the very beginning though. I didn't mind Arya's sex scene at all, it did seem natural to me. She is a teenager, after all, she has experienced so much horrible stuff, she will possibly die in the near future, she's attracted to him and she wanted to have sex before she died. Seems reasonable enough to me. I agree that the dialogues were improved a lot (possibly by the change of screenwriters) and the episode was in general so much better than the first one. Also that song scene gave me those epic LotR vibes and I'm so freaking excited for what's coming next!

    Game of Thrones

    Yes, but he didn't have much of a relationship with his brother either. I guess they just needed something to push him to reveal to Jon that he's the heir to the throne. I don't really remember there being a rule regarding who can ride a dragon. I thought it was more like if the dragon likes you then you can ride it, if not then bye. Maybe she thought that because she's close to Jon, the dragons will be ok with him riding them?! I'm not gonna lie, I'm slightly grateful for the sloppy screenwriting, because it makes me long for the next books so much more. Like, I don't even care if all the events will be the same (which they won't be), I NEED the books so I can get actual insight and the depth of GRRM's intricate storytelling and characterization. As you said, I'm just pleased that the visual and acting aspects are close to perfection and that I get to see how the story will end.

    Game of Thrones

    No, I'm just saying that instead of going on trips, they could've gotten married. Or at least they could get married first and then go on a trip. Basically everyone was yapping about how he kind of broke their trust by giving up his title and bringing her there. A marriage would make it clearer that they are actually united and that Jon isn't her concubine. Yeah, I agree about Sam's father and brother. I was actually a bit surprised when he almost started crying. His reaction would've been more justified if she'd killed his mother and sister, that were decent human beings and loved and treated him as they should've.

    Game of Thrones

    @Baki Honestly. I agree about the political marriage as well, even Cersei and Euron are -supposedly- going to get married, but Jon and Daenarys, with the stakes being much higher, the White Walkers closing in and everyone bickering about his title, are going on day trips and whatnot. Ugh. And that stupid Tormund joke that everyone loved, as if his blue eyes (that you can't even make out their colour in the dark) are even remotely close to the wight/White Walker blue. Anyway, I missed it and even though it was a slow start, I'm so excited about the next episodes, hopefully they are going to make up for it. I'm loving all the memes it created, too.

    Reaction videos (to music)

    Oh, snap! Great April fool's joke, I only wish he cried as well at some point. I watched quite a few reaction videos when they all started reacting to NW, but after a bit I lost interest because most of them seemed to overreact in order to please their audience or just because there's something wrong with them (like a girl that was ACTUALLY sobbing spasmodically after listening to a few seconds of Floor's singing and continued so for the entire video ughh). I only watch ProgPiglet and x666xIronMaiden (he has done the entire NW discography), as they seem the most genuine to me. Sam's great at analysing vocals and even some of his videos about singers I rarely listen to can be interesting.

    The Floor thread

    @hunebedbouwer sb = abbreviation for somebody. Sorry to confuse you.

    The Floor thread

    I think it's mainly because of the absence of eyebrows. They can really change sb's appearance, dramatically even. Lovely picture nonetheless, she looks very happy! <3

    Within Temptation II

    Well, I hope you are completely right! It's been too long since WT and NW last came and it's crazy because, as you said, they do have lots of fans here. Tarja, Evanescence, Epica all visit, Anneke even went to some very obscure Greek cities, so hopefully WT and NW will grace us with their presence in the not so distant future.

    Within Temptation II

    Yeah, when I saw the tweet I thought about what Sharon said, and then I checked both their touring schedules, WT will be finished with their North American tour in a couple of days and Evanescence will do one in May, so they both have Europe and South America left. Really, how come? I wouldn't think so, since they haven't been here in 11 years. Evanescence visits regularly though, so I really, really hope that that's the case!
  10. Lena

    Within Temptation II

    Aaah! What do you guys think? Maybe that they will open for Evanescence in Europe? I definitely hope so, because that would make it more possible for WT to come to Greece again. edit: they deleted the tweet

    Within Temptation II

    Well, either way that would be pretty stupid of him, even more so if he knew. It would be taking it too far. Also, who the hell would have wanted to see that?
  12. Lena

    Within Temptation II

    Yes, I know. That guy, though, probably doesn't.

    Within Temptation II

    I mean... Sharon is dancing too in the videoclip, plus it's a very upbeat song, if I didn't know the meaning of the lyrics I would never have guessed that it's about loss, probably a break-up at most. That being said, I agree that it's disrespectful, and he definitely should have looked up the lyrics and their meaning before even thinking about posting a video of himself dancing stupidly & naked to it. The "resistance" bit sounds completely ridiculous dear Lord.

    Within Temptation II

    So, dark Sharon and light Sharon meet again, except this time dark Sharon is pissed. At least she didn't start levitating for no apparent reason, again. It reminded me of Running up that hill, but yes it's also a much, much, much, MUCH better version of Ice Queen. They seem to love being in the outer space or somewhere really high up. I liked it she looks beautiful once again.

    Within Temptation II

    I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's a very good album, probably on par with Hydra, but it didn't really thrill me. Hopefully I'll like it more the more I listen to it, but atm I'm not very pleased with it. I agree with those of you that said that it's not as musically diverse as their previous albums and that some of the songs kinda blend into each other. I also feel that the songwriting was rushed and not as thought out as I would've liked it to be - there're too many repetitive and generic lyrics. The Reckoning - I still like it, not as much as RyB, but definitely more than Firelight and In Vain. I do feel that I need to take a break from listening to it though. Endless War - One of my favourites. Love its dynamic, the orchestra/choir touches, the vocals and the lyrics. It's just a tiny bit too short (also does she pronounce miracle weirdly or is it me that does?). Raise Your Banner - Still love it. Makes me want to put on an armour and FIGHT. The fact that it's Sharon's fav makes me hopeful for the music they'll bring out in the future. Supernova - Quite nice, very energetic and catchy. The choir part feels a bit out of place, but I like it overall. Holy Ground - The bordeline rap vocals are cool and the chorus sounds gorgeous. However, I wish they'd worked more on the lyrics, they're so bad. I actually cringed everytime I heard those "ya's". In Vain - I've grown tired of it. Firelight - Still like its dark & haunting atmosphere, but as someone has already mentioned, I could do without the oh-oh-oh's. Mad World - Super generic lyrics as well. It does remind me of Sinead, but the latter is SO much better. Mercy Mirror - It started out beautifully and has some very touching lyrics, but I feel that they don't match the rest of the song's tempo/music, I think I'd prefer them in a ballad. Trophy Hunter - I like it a LOT, it could've been in The Unforgiving, but it doesn't reaaally pack a punch, there's something missing.

    ^Right, but like they died in them. It's a bit Game of Thrones-y

    She's so beautiful!! Still not feeling the artwork though and that coffin inspired photoshoot is a bit meh.
  18. Lena

    Within Temptation II

    Atm my ranking (from best to worst) would probably be: THoE - TU - Enter - TSF - ME - Hydra. I loove The Unforgiving, it has so many badass, upbeat songs that are perfect for working out, and all its ballads are amazing as well. From the snippets those that stick out to me are Endless War and Supernova. Aah, we're so close!

    I hope so!

    Within Temptation II

    It has an extra verse with new lyrics in the beginning, the old one started with the refrain right away. I prefer the new one, the lyrics make more sense that way. The Spotify version, which is basically the new version + the memento mori part at the beginning as well, is my fav of the three. Why the hell did they bring out three different versions at once though

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I'm with you guys. I just watched a Raskasta Joulua video and was kind of embarrassed for her. Hopefully she'll get back on track sometime soon. Omg she'll give a concert in Crete! How random is that!

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Aaah you can see their expressions here and the orchestra members' smiles. She's so cute <3

    Movie Recommendation Thread

    @Sophia It was definitely the movie of the year for me! I only knew like 5 or so of their songs, but when a song came up in the movie I got chills, and after watching it I just wanted to know everything about them and I watched so many of their interviews and concerts. Even though it wasn't completely accurate, it still was a great tribute to Queen and Freddie, I loved it.

    Yeah I've gotten used to it as well, but it's soo much worse than those two. Ahahahah, the video is hilariously awful. But why? Look at these gems:

    ^^Agreed, it still baffles me that she chose to wear that abysmal wig and for the cover too ffs. I'd much prefer that pic or maybe this one:
