  • Harry Potter

    23 août 2010, 17h32m

    You can always tell when I've been re-reading Harry Potter: E Nomine is always the highest played artist of the week.

    For some reason, I find them to be a very appropriate "soundtrack" to the books.

    #10: Avril Lavigne


    Now answer these questions (without shuffle).

    Out of these, which is your favourite band?
    OOMPH!

    Have you ever seen #4 in concert?
    No.

    Do you own any merchandise by #9?
    No. I have a shirt from a festival they played at though.

    Have you met any members of #2?
    lawlnooo

    Do any of your friends like #10?
    Perhaps. I don't know.

    If #1 was to do the soundtrack for a film, what would the film be about?
    Sex. Haha.

    What’s your favourite song by #8?
    I don't really listen to them.. I don't honestly remember why they're in my library.

    What’s your favourite album by #3?
    Depends on my mood. If I'm looking for something harder, then Withering to Death, but if I'm looking for something more.. upbeat (for them) then probably Gauze.

    When/where was the first time you heard #7?
    A few years ago, when I was on my huge J-Rock/Visual Kei binge.

    What do you like about #6?
    Eh.

    How long ago did #5 form?
    I have no idea.

    Put your player on shuffle again and list the first 10 SONGS (and artists) that come up. No song repeats.

    Out of these, which song is your favourite?
    Either "Fuzz" or "Drugs or Me"

    If you had to choose one, which would you play at your funeral? Why?
    I feel like "Clocks" would be the most appropriate for a funeral..

    How about as a first dance at your wedding? Why?
    I don't think any of these are good dancing songs..

    How does #1 make you feel?
    Angry?

    Does #9 remind you of anyone?
    Yeah.

    Do you like to sing along to #6?
    No.

    Eh, I don't have one.

    If #8 was used in a movie, what scene would it portray?
    No idea.

    How long have you known #7?
    Three or four years.

    Have you got any other versions/mixes of #5?
    Nope.

    What is the best part of #10?
    Harmonica + hard, driving, guitar = sexy.

    Does #4 have male or female vocals?
    Male. Whats up wonderful German voice.

    Has #3 ever been played on the radio?
    I don't know. Not here at any rate. But I don't think it's a single or anything.
  • The power of German music.

    30 août 2009, 17h39m

    I find this interesting:

    My neighbor/her frequently-visiting-boyfriend above me are.. loud. They storm around and shake my ceiling, and don't seem to care if I can hear their conversations/sex.

    This has resulted in less-than good nights of sleep for me.
    After laying in bed for two hours this morning, trying to fall back asleep and failing, I roll out of bed and start up the computer.

    Apparently they don't like my german music, because the second OOMPH! started playing, I hear nothing from above.
    (Or maybe I'm just playing it so loud I'm drowning their loud-asses out.)
  • Haha, what the hell iTunes?

    8 jan. 2009, 1h49m

    I'm convinced the people of iTunes are doing weed, or something similar.

    They categorized Die Krupps as Rock. Not so farfetched, but they're still off. Ruoska is apparently pop, and Hanzel und Gretyl are dance.

    Seriously?
    No.

    DIR EN GREY has a new album coming out later this month. Friggin' A, right?

    I wish. The single for GLASS SKIN, just the single, is nearly $20 dollars. The CD itself, UROBOROS, is about $40. The limited edition CD? $150.

    Jesus fuck, I can't afford that. Tuition is killing me- damned college education.
    Being broke makes me sad. So here's where I debate between eating, or buying a CD. It's a hard choice to make.

  • Broadway

    5 mai 2008, 17h58m

    Broadway soundtracks disappoint me.. especially if it's a show I've personally done.

    Last night I closed "Grease," and today I bought one of the better versions of the soundtracks I could find. Nonetheless, it's not the same. It never has the same passion.

    I guess I best get used to it.
  • Japan II

    12 avr. 2008, 1h30m

    Dad returned from Japan this morning. He brought back a few things: STYLE by Namie Amuro, and THUMPx by Porno Graffitti.

    I've wanted these two for years. I'm pretty happy right now.
  • Japan

    30 mars 2008, 16h11m

    Dad is off for his Spring trip to Japan this Friday. Of course, I'm composing a list of CDs to look for. Usually he has a day or two to himself in Tokyo- this trip one of his travel companions wants to get some music too.

    The list:

    Do As Infinity: BREAK OF DAWN, NEW WORLD

    L’Arc~en~Ciel: Ark, DUNE, Link

    Namie Amuro: STYLE

    DéspairsRay: MIRROR, Coll:set

    Porno Graffitti: THUMPx

    the GazettE: STACKED RUBBISH

    RENTRER EN SOI: Sphire-Croid, AMONGST FOOLISH ENEMIES

    Hayato Matsuo: Black Dog

    Obviously, I'm not going to get the whole list- that would be thousands upon thousands of Yen. But, one CD would be nice, and sometimes Dad comes home with an EP too. So, we'll see.
