    What are you watching?

    Good show, but I think the best thing about it is the soundtrack. And Charlie Hunnam. Somehow I couldn't get into it. My friend recommended it to me, and I was looking forward to it 'cause I missed the language after I moved from Germany, but somehow it failed to capture my imagination. To be honest, there are so few shows that are worth a damn lately. I quite liked Carnival Row, looking forward to season 2, and right now I'm watching 9-1-1, which is interesting enough to continue watching, but not fascinating enough to really capture the imagination.

    What are you reading now?

    Well, I'm still on WoT 'cause duh, enough books to last for quite some time, and I love it. I am indeed starting to like Mat more and more which is refreshing. And I'm also starting to feel sorry for Rand, the guy's in deep ... poop. And actually, I guess it's 'cause I got used to the characters, but they are really less annoying now. Moiraine's controlling nature is still there though and man, it's irritating. Maaan, I'm so jealous... I prefer the Nick Podehl's version though, I quite like the way the British narrator does the accents and character voices, but the narration itself is rather weird to my ear, I couldn't get into it. And not being a native speaker, I found the Podehl's version easier to understand. Also, dunno whether I mentioned it, but the Felurian chapters do seem better when spoken rather than just on page. Iambic meter tends to have that effect. Patrick Rothfuss, you damn brilliant bastard you...

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    Geez, this guy is awesome! <3 But to stay on topic, I dunno, it's probably 'cause I don't quite fancy this song, but I can't say I'm all too thrilled about this video. The sound seems better than on VoS, so at least there's that. Guess we're gonna see how other songs turn out.

    Same) I laughed like crazy when I was watching it for the first time. I'm loving it, the lyrics, the video, just everything... <3 Although the uncensored version is even crazier and creepier and rather disgusting tbh, but it's actually even better.

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I love Tuomas' piano melodies and I can't get enough of them, so I totally share the dislike of Troy's involvement in Nemo. It just doesn't suit the song at ALL.

    LINDEMANN - Knebel Till is just amazing <3 And I love it that he's singing in German for his solo project, I love him, but his English is awful.

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Oh pffft, that's not metal, that's rudeness. I come to concerts to see the band and have a good time with like-minded people, not to be pushed around by people who have no consideration for other people's well-being. I'm still pissed at the two drunk girls who pushed through the crowd and stood near me at the EV concert and kept bumping into me so often that I'm surprised that I don't have bruises. And btw, hobbit-sized girls like me also like heavy music and want to enjoy a concert without having to wear a full-body armour to survive it. Especially when it's totally possible if people just keep in mind that other people want to enjoy the gig too.

    The Old Era

    Well, admittedly I haven't seen many of her live performance in her solo career, and even on FWTE she does go over the top sometimes, but overall this performance still seems MUCH more authentic and feels much more real than EoaE and the like. I usually don't have much against a little overdramatics-ness (?) on stage, it's NW after all. And well, to quote one really amazing book, "we'd never hold a little showmanship against a man", but EoaE is really more than I can stomach. What really did improve from those times is her pronounciation, her accent was atrocious in her early career, now it's merely a bit annoying.

    The Old Era

    I've just been rewatching From Wishes to Eternity and I kept thinking, maaan, she's GOOD! Funnilly enough, I always liked End of an Era as well, but for whatever reason this show does nothing for me now. What the hell is up with her breath in Sleeping Sun? WIHAA is all weird too. And geez, her behaviour on stage is either awkward, overly dramatic or just plain weird. Btw how is Creek Mary's Blood still allowed to exist? Like, at all? Whereas She is My Sin and Come Cover Me on From Wishes to Eternity are nothing but perfection. Damn, the girl could sing... Don't get me wrong, Floor's She is My Sin and Ever Dream on Vehicle of Spirit are another form of perfection, Sleeping Sun too, even though she does come in a second too late on the first chorus. And I'm not even mentioning TPATP from VoS, this is so perfect it should be made illegal. But, just a tiny bit, I do miss Tarja's good ol' chest voice combined with old-school NW.

    The Old Era

    I got into NW around 2006, so I knew what I was getting myself into. Tbh I didn't think much of Anette at first, I think I started to really love her when iRum came out. NW music still impressed me much more than Tarja's solo stuff ever did, so I stood behind the band 100%. But man, drama follows them around like no other.

    THEY ARE COMING TO MOSCOW NEXT MAY!!! Sorry, way too excited about this... I'm so freaking happy. And the tickets are rather cheap for a band of their scale...

    The Floor thread

    No offence to Marco, but I definitely like this version of PotO. Where did you keep this Henk guy, he's great! Why isn't he known, like, everywhere in the world? The guys there act so surprised like they haven't seen what Floor and Henk can do. Seriously though, they put Floor and Henk on stage and then they are like, 'oh my, never knew it's gonna be so awesome!' Pfft, please... EDIT: also, may I just add, as a side note, how cute this Tim guy is...

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I second that three times! I lost count how many times I watched this video, and it bloody hits me every time. About Wembley, I'm still looking for a version with a good sound. Although I do love this DVD, but man, the sound is baaad...

    I'm currently running on Marina mode. Damn I love this girl. I'm also starting to suspect she's one of the best lyricists in pop music and maybe beyond, I mean listen to this:

    You are right of course Still, it's quite annoying, especially when I see that I won't obstruct the view much, even when I stand in front. Oh, I wonder how it's gonna be at their gig here in September, man I'm looking forward to it Funny, it wasn't that bad at other concerts I've been to, NW or Oomph. And overall it was the craziest gig I've attended. People were actually real nice, but just because there were so many of us and because it was such a huge venue, it was harder, more crowded and more stressful. And when they come again, I'm seriously considering getting there early enough to get into the front row. Otherwise I'm not sure it's worth it, I can't look over the heads of other people, and even if I could, the stage was far enough even from the front row, because of obvious reasons, if it's any further off I would rather watch a professionally made DVD while drinking a cold one at home than trying to make something out. Btw I wonder, has anyone noticed, were there any girls standing between the fan zone and the stage during other concerts, or was it only Moscow?
