  1. There is nothing I can say but to agree with that what you said. I like every single Nightwish album. Doesn't matter who is singing the songs. If you take a look at comment sections below Nightwish videos on YouTube, there are still this discussions going on about who is better. I suppose that will never stop. I have to confess though that I prefer Floor singing most of the songs live compared to the previous two singers. But there is no need to re-record the old songs with Floor as some people might wish. Apart from that I have to confess that there are only eight months to wait until I'm going to see Nightwish live again for the sixth time.
  2. Yesterday's felt temperature was -15 degrees Celcius and I made the mistake to take a walk around the lake without proper winter clothing for the legs. I thought my legs were about to freeze off and I was beyond happy when I finally got home and out of the cold. Best thing is the cold will leave us on the weekend finally. But I heard there will be rain. That was the only positive thing about the cold weather it came with a lot of sun and some slight snow fall earlier this week. But I'm more than ready for spring and I can't wait to see all the spring flowers start to bloom again.
  3. There is nothing bad about going to concerts alone. It might feel a bit weird first but I'm sure that you will meet some new people there. At least you will have a common topic to start a conversation and when the concert starts, you will be busy with watching the show and then it doesn't matter if you went to the concert alone. About Lagoon. It would be lovely to have that song on the setlist but I doubt they will play it. But one can still hope. Maybe they will surprise us.
  4. I agree with you. I don't like these animated videos either but the song is good. Same for the whole EP. My favourite song of it is Fight Your Demons.
  5. The trailers for Decades are very random and Tuomas is talking about nothing new. At least I have the feeling that I have heard most of the things before. But hey, it is a best of album that Nuclear Blast wants to sell to us and they were in desperate need to produce trailers for that. I care way more about the upcoming tour than about the new best of album. Talking about the pipes. I prefer Nemo without pipes but I wouldn't say that Troy butchered the song. We have a couple of songs which were made for pipes like My Walden, I Want My Tears Back and The Islander. That should be enough. No need to add them to older, pipeless songs from my point of view.
  6. Good to see you in here again. I thought we have lost you somewhere in cyberspace along with some other brave pub souls. I would appreciate if some others return edas well but that is just a hopeless dream. Anyway, I'm doing quite well. Hope you are doing well too. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that siberian cold front which is coming here next week, in fact it will be already here tomorrow. It is going to be really cold and I don't like that at all. I will have to bury myself in blankets with lots of hot tea. Have I already mentioned that I desperately want spring to arrive?
  7. Never thought that we would be actually able to reach an ice hockey final in the olympics. This is the biggest success so far. I heard there was a bronze medal a couple of decades ago but now we will have at least a silver medal. This seems so unreal. I'm happy for the players and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow's final.
  8. Last week I had one of these random Nightwish dreams again. It has been a while since my last. I dreamed of the concert I'm going to attend to later this year. At least I thought it was because it took place in the same location. Anyway, I was standing there, waiting for the concert to start and after a while it started. For some reason there was also Simone Simons on stage and singing the whole first song with Floor. It was a Nightwish song no doubt but my brain can't remember which one it was. I was just totally confused by the fact that Simone was also jumping around the stage. As a second song they played an utterly weird cover version of You Can't Take Me from the Spirit Stallion of the Cimarron soundtrack. Without Simone though because she mysteriously disappeared. Therefore a chair appeared next to the stage. I grabbed that chair, sat down and took my laptop out of my bag which also seemed to have appeared there out of sudden. I started to browse the Nightwish forum instead of paying attention to the concert that was still going on. Then I woke up.
  9. First of all, thanks a lot for the insight on this topic. My knowledge about hair related things is pretty bad. Oh, I didn't know that the hair length is limited by genetics. That explains why it doesn't continue to grow longer after a certain length. Too bad. I have always dreamed of having really long hair, seems like I have to bury that dream. The health thing, yeah, I have had that suspicion already. And I use hairbands daily without metal pieces though and I pay attention that I don't tie it too tight. And I usually brush my hair quite ungentle, escpecialy when I'm in a hurry and my hair doesn't want to untangle. Trying a different shampoo is a good idea.I have to admit that I wash my hair every single day because I wouldn't feel clean enough if I didn't do it.
  10. Analysing poems, stories and lyrics is always interesting because everyone has a different way to interpret things. Bless The Child fits very well in the "loss of innocence" concept of Century Child (if you leave aside the The Phantom of The Opera cover and I think Ever Dream doesn't really fit the theme either) and therefore the mood of the album is dark and depressed. But I don't think Bless the Child is a message to the members of the band. It is more like Tuomas expressing the feelings he had in the time before/around the split. There must have been a lot of tension in the band in 2001 according to the biography and we all know how it ended (and a similar situation happened in 2005 and those feelings led to Dark Passion Play which is also a very dark album). The spilt kind of resembles the loss of innocence. I also think that the "purple waterfalls" refer to the birthplace of Nightwish though a lake/river/stream with purple water sounds a bit unhealthy. Anyway, I think a lot of people can identify themselves with the song because depressive feelings are not rare.
  11. There was a Ghost Love Score demo with Anette? I have to admit that I didn't know that. It would be interesting to hear that one. I didn't lke her live version at all but maybe the demo sounds a bit different. Though I can totally understand that she doesn't want to share it anymore.
  12. I'm well aware of the thing with the muscles. Haven't thought about going to the gym yet because I would feel akward among all those fitness obsessed people in a sticky room. Walking sounds like a good idea for a start. I love being outside. But for real exercising I think I'm going to look if I find a suitable sport for me. Otherwise I doubt that I will be motivated enough to keep it up. And yes, I really need to add more fruits and vegetables to my meals. I drink enough water already. My main goal is to be in a better shape, I'm slim enough.
  13. That live version of Stargazers with Tarja... well... in gentle words... I don't like it at all. The band has improved a lot in the past years and Floor is doing more than a great job with her live performances. That is why I'm eagerly waiting for the Decades tour to start to have some new live stuff to discuss.
  14. There is a similar problem with Dead Boy's Poem for me. I don't like the song that much tbh. For Tuomas is must be a highly emotional song because as far as I remember that he wrote it as a kind of things he would need to say before he dies. Anyway, I'm doing better with listening to Our Decades in the Sun. I don't skip it anymore and I wouldn't mind if they play that one during the Decades tour. Today's confession is that I hope they will never take Ghost Love Score off the setlist.
  15. I wouldn't call him annoying but he has changed a lot since he is the Three-Eyed Raven. The worst thing is that we have to wait till 2019 for the last and final season. How can I survive a whole year without Game of Thrones? Though I think it will be worse after the final season is done. I'm curious about the spin-offs they are planning though.
