    Rammstein

    It's more like 'doll', 'puppet' would be 'Marionette' I think? But anyway, not much of a stretch.

    Rammstein

    I dunno if you heard, they posted riffs from the upcoming album and they sound amazing. https://ramm.st/album-tracklist

    Rammstein

    Ah you beat me to it Damn, once again they prove that their videos are just the best! I mean it's weird definitely, but weird's their middle name. The media is of course blowing up the controversy, I don't think they even bothered to listen to the song and the lyrics at all. Ok brb, off to watch the video another couple hundred times.

    Wie lange seid ihr schon Nightwish Fans?

    Ist schon ziemlich merkwürdig, vor einiger Zeit würde ich Martin und Elodia zustimmen, am Anfang hat mich Floors Stimme auch nicht so berührt, und ich bin immer noch der Meinung dass bei vielen Songs sie es einfach nicht drauf hat. Vehicle of Spirit und die Videos vom letzten Tournee haben mich aber sehr überzeugt. Bei manchen Songs ist sie einfach überwältigend. Da wo Tarja zu viel Oper mitschleppte, hat Floor weniger opernmäßig und viel schöner gesungen. Und da wo es Anette an Stärke fehlte, hat sich Floor mit voller Kraft eingesetzt. Es gibt sicher einige Songs die ich im Original besser finde (z.B. das ganze iRum), aber ich nehme es Floor nicht übel. Ich bin auch ganz gespannt was für Material Tuomas für die vorbereitet. Ich hoffe nur es ist besser als EFMB :/

    Doctor Who

    That is actually quite right. I liked her better as a character after her mystery was revealed. And in the best DW and Moffat tradition it doesn't make much sense, her mystery I mean. Also, am I just thick, or has it really never actually been revealed how 11 and Clara got out of the Doctor's time stream? I was wondering about it after the episode aired, but I loved The Day of the Doctor so much I actually forgot all about it for a time. Hm.... I actually never quite thought about it this way. It's a very interesting perspective indeed. "You were an extraordinary Doctor. Good has nothing to do with it".

    Doctor Who

    "- Then why do you sound like you are from the north?! - Lots of planets have a north!" "- Let us mourn the Earth with one of its traditional ballads..." *Toxic by Britney Spears playing* Yeah, I see what you mean about cheesiness...

    What are you reading now?

    Blood of Elves is good, yes. I think it was the first book I read by him. Somehow I often start series in a weird order. My first HP book was PoA... Anyway, I think you'll still enjoy the rest of the series, for the sake of having closure. It's still good, even if it doesn't have the same feeling as the first books. It's still good writing, but the plot is a bit all over the place. Definitely agree. I hated the very beginning, where it's all sex, sex, sex, passion and such. But when they started having something resembling a real relationship it was actually rather interesting, you know, having conversations, her trying to comfort him after he met Cthaeh and not knowing how, their saying goodbye also felt like a couple preparing to be separated for quite a long time. But I have to admit I was glad when it was over. As much as I enjoy reading that Kvothe had something good happening in his life, it was a bit too much. Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely check it out. Actually the reason I wanted to read something by Gaiman was Stardust (the movie), I thought I'd start with something else and then read Stardust the book. But yeah, American Gods is not very good. Anyway, remember I said that Stormlight Archive didn't impress me much? Well, you can scratch that, it actually grew on me. As it sometimes happens, it took me a month maybe to finish the first half of the first book, and only a couple of weeks to read the second half of the book. I started book 2 and I'm quite hooked.

    Doctor Who

    @Sophia Yeah, Capaldi's Doctor and Clara were not very good together. Clara worked much better with Matt's Doctor. But I don't think there was anything romantic between Capaldi's Doctor and Clara, her and Matt's Doctor surely, but not her and Capaldi's, she had a boyfriend at the time after all... I liked the season with Bill though, it seemed all to suit together rather perfectly. Capaldi's Doctor was sort of grandfather/mentor figure to Bill, and Missy being mischievous, not much of a story arc, so yeah, I rather liked it. Maybe it wasn't perfect, DW never is, but I liked it. And yeah, Moffat's story arcs are sort of all over the place, his stand-alone episodes are much better.
  11. Somebody's Lass

    Doctor Who

    @Sophia You should check Capaldi's Doctor if you haven't already, he's rather amazing. Can't say I liked him much with Clara, but they were great with Bill. Rose is not my favourite character either, but she grew on me, I think they worked rather well with 10. But I think the moment that made her great for me was at the end of season 1, when she goes back to the Doctor after he sends her back home in the TARDIS. And yes, I love Stephen Moffat! How could I not, Sherlock and DW are my favourite shows. Although I have to admit, his episodes as a side writer in the RTD era are more impressive than his seasonal story arcs.
  12. Somebody's Lass

    Doctor Who

    So guess what, I just finished season 11, and damn it, I'm pissed! Writing have always been DW's forte, even if something wasn't 100% good you could always count there will this one perfect piece of dialogue or monologue that cuts you in half emotionally. Both RTD and Stephen Moffat could leave you so devastated that you needed therapy. Now, answer me this, HOW could they, after RTD and Moffat and many other brilliant writers, give us such mediocre writing now?! I mean I had my doubts about Chibnail, his episodes were mostly filler episodes, but I was determined to give him a chance. And filler episodes is exactly what we got. A whole season full of filler episodes. Ok fine, probably you don't need a large story arc for the whole season, but there was NONE, not a single scene let alone episode that made me go WOW... Not a single quote that I want tattooed on my body, nothing... Which is a shame 'cause it had so.much.potential. Jodie Whittaker is a great Doctor, and her companions are quite interesting too. They even had some cool aliens, but it was all wasted. I mean, c'mon, you create an alien race who can live for millennia and shape the universe and you make them freaking side characters?! REALLY?! All to make more room for this ridiculous villian who doesn't make an ounce of sense, but somehow becomes a story arc for the season? Geez...

    What are you reading now?

    @Encaitar Oh, thanks for the tips! Yeah, it's the first thing that I read by him, I'll definitely try his other series. Yeah, it does feel like something massive, I'll need to remember to keep an eye on the series, it's still good. And you are right, it's still better than most of fantasy. It's weird though, I'd definitely say I like fantasy, but whenever I try reading some of it, it either feels like a cheap Tolkien or HP knock-off, or it's just meh... Dragonlance is not good enough, Sapkowski is rather good (The Last Wish, massive love!), but still not consistent, the later books are not as good. De Guin is rather ok, but still failed to grasp my imagination. Terry Prachett has good stuff, but a bit too ... bizarre to my taste. I'm just starting on Neil Gaiman, but American Gods didn't quite impress me. That's why I was so thrilled when I read Rothfuss, THAT'S what fantasy should be like, deep, hilarious, charismatic, just ... perfect. With one teeny-tiny exception, the Felurian chapters. I mean, it was interesting to see their relationship and a bit of a Fae realm, but I generally find sex scenes rather boring, and pre- or after-sex scenes, which is basically what these chapters are, make me yawn till I dislocate my jaw. Which is weird coming from someone who likes Outlander, but oh well. I think I'm gonna try Wheel of Time and some Robin Hobb after that... Good literature is addictive, and I'll never stop looking for my next fix.

    What are you reading now?

    After swallowing The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, having withdrawals like you wouldn't believe and trying to cure them with some good old Tolkien, I started reading The Stormlight Archive. It's probably because I'm still under the influence from NotW and WMF, but The Stormlight Archive doesn't impress me all that much... I'm about halfway through the first book, and I mean it's good, interesting and so on, but it takes him forever to come to a point, somehow it reminds me of ASoIaF, and I don't like it... Kaladin seems like a great guy, and Shallan should def ditch her sadist of a brother, but overall... a little meh. Also, I just realized that this series isn't yet finished, next time I'm gonna check whether the series is finished yet before starting it. Which brings me to HURRY UP, PATRICK ROTHFUSS!

    Decades World Tour 2018

    Ohh I like this accordion girl in Wishmaster! Also, sorry Floor, but Tarja's classical vocals and Tapio's growling in The Devil are much better together...
