    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Really? Her pronunciation is far from great, but it does not bother me nearly as much as her switching between registers and vibrato frequencies without any control and sense.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Really? I think I would go crazy in such environment, regardless of otherwise beautiful house. Finally got around to watching both Act II concerts. Well, in order not to spread additional negativity on this topic, I will just say I really like the performance of Shameless. Ans she looked great, as always.

    Within Temptation

    Oh yes, the Q-sessions! With TU, the album of theirs that I listened to most often. They have shown that Lana del Rey so does not deserve to have written Summertime sadness, but WT!

    Within Temptation

    From that new song demo that was leaked, seems I will not like it at all. And I was not ON anything, apart from my universally valid and objective music taste.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Wow, the exterior design looks stunning, but why do people nowadays furnish their houses all in black and white? To me it just feels so cold and unlivable.

    Within Temptation

    YES! I barely like couple of songs from The Heart, some songs off Hydra, but TU is definitely their best. The pre-Heart albums they can scrap altogether, as far as I am concerned.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Could be, after all it is a matter of personal taste, but on the other hand, her live performances (and by that I mean both singing and stage behaviour) has deteriorated to barely a shadow of her former self (pun intended), whereas the band's live format (esp. singing-wise) has never been better.

    Thanks a lot! I am officially incapable of googling!

    Hey Magyar people, are there any tickets left for Budapest concert, or they are sold out? Cannot find any official link on the net.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    Completely agree, but then again, I roll my eyes every time Tuomas used the phrase "openly secular" to describe his personal agnosticism/atheism. Being secular has nothing to do with you being personally religious or not, just that religious believes and institutions are separated from official affairs of the state. So, from what I know of Finnish history, the whole country has been "openly secular" for quite some time. Not to mention that this insistence on "openly" makes it look like he grew up in Saudi Arabia. Not that this spoils my enjoyment of NW music, just, he really needs to have some terms clarified.

    Game of Thrones

    Well, you do have a point there, although I still see all these able people flocking to the heiress of incestuous dragon-taming dynasty more connected to precisely those assets of hers, rather than Daeneris' personal qualities, esp. in the first couple of seasons/books. And I actually also regret that GRRM kind of wasted the chance to make a really nuanced portrayal of Cercei in the books.. Although she is much less of a villain there than in the shows, she is still a villain, and I have problems with that. It just makes the whole constellation of forces more black and white than this otherwise exquisite plot deserves.

    Game of Thrones

    I can give you both that Cercei is definitely way too stubborn and lacks a far-sighted strategic thinking. However, when comparing her to Daeneris, was there really anybody who could truly help her and on whose advice she could truly rely? Daeneris had a whole host of devoted advisers, completely devoted to her, even more so in the TV show. Whom does Cercei have? Either lickspittles trying to suck up to the crown (and she is aware of it), or incompetent bureaucrats, or people who apparently want her either out of game altogether or to make as many mistakes as possible. Why Dany had Jorah, all those Essosi people, Missandei, + Tyrion and Varis, Cercei had, well, Varys and Littlefinger who deliberately influenced her to do crazy things, and Kevan Lannister who saw only abomination in her sex life. Or Qyburn, whom I guess she does not trust too much either. Even Jaime, with all his positive emotions towards her, was away for the better part of the plot, and arguably is not too strategic in his thinking either. In the end, the only person who really had positive effect on her as a ruler and would bring her benefit was Tyrion, but yeah, pathological childhood trauma eventually had the better of her. Although both Dany and Cercei were basically "sold" to their husbands, the former eventually found her man to be loving and supporting brute, whereas the latter did not have that luck. And don't get me started on that "Bend the knee" thing in the latest season. Why should she, or anyone else in Westeros, bend the knee to Daeneris? Because her whacko father used to rule the land once long ago, burning people at his whim, until those people got sick of it and killed him? Sorry Dany, your claim is really shaky, and not even those three fire-breathing pets of yours cannot make it better.
