• Questions about your Top 50 (edition 2015)

    29 Mar 2015, 13:21 by Dlartrisky

    so uhm I decided to do this b/c it seems fun xD Why 2015 edition? I might do the same exactly 2 years later or so b/c of the fact my Top 50 is so tight it's about to change every day and night or the numbers will get to be different. there might be some major gaps in between but nvm, I couldn't care less tbh.

    And now... the aaaaansweeeeeers!

    1. How did you get into 40?
    Arctic Monkeys
    Umm... long story. Dates me back to times I loved watching WatchMojo tops and Pleated Jeans misheard lyric videos. So one of WatchMojo tops was Top 10 Greatest Animated Music Videos. And #10 was "Do I Wanna Know?". And I was like "omf what the :O" at that video. Somewhere in between someone put that song to This Is My Jam when I junked into that site as that person's jam. I copied him or her too later on when I got into that song more.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 16?
    huhu another long story dating me back there! Well…

    Vie 22 Oct – Pepsi Music 2010 - Día 2: Green Day

    Fue una máquina del tiempo porque revivi la emoción qe tenia por esta
    banda allá por 1997 cuando se los veia seguido en MTV, lindas épocas de
    vj´s con Ruth, Alfredo y Gonzalo a la cabeza, videos nuevos en XPO y
    Beavis and Butthead, Nimrod y Be Here Now recien editados a
    22 pesos cada uno en Musimundo, (sisi LA inversión para mi, no me
    aguanté) es verdad todo pasado siempre fue mejor dicen, pero hoy
    presente fue increible.
    Después de tanto gracias gracias gracias, thank you thank you, I love you`s de Billie Joe quedaron perdonados después de tanto tiempo luego de su última y primer visita en Noviembre de 1998. Aclaro no haber ido al Parque Sarmiento por ser un purrete, todavía estoy puteando por eso. aun tengo la transmision de Rock and Pop en dos viejos TDK de 60, aquellos años que se transmitian los recitales íntegros. loquísimo.
    Casi a los cuarenta Billie Joe que sigue siendo un adolescente, parece que tenga menos años que en la susodicha época de su primera visita…
  • Concert Year in Review

    10 Oct 2010, 06:00 by jakebuell88

    I have had the privilege to see more live shows this year than in any year prior,and all of them were satisfying in different ways and to much different extents.So i figured why not write this little thing about them? Here they are,in Chronological order:

    Show one:Coheed and Cambria at Royal Oak Music Theatre
    Support Acts:Circa Survive

    This show was an absolute doozy. After some really stupid black card line related shenanigans which i really would rather not go into,we somehow still got into the front row in front of the bassist,which was really cool. After an exceptionally long wait(about an hour and 15 minutes),Circa Survive came out finally.To be kind,i was not impressed with them.Sure they had stage presence,but each song was nearly indistinguishable from the next,and some of their fans got a little too aggressive and created some sketchy situations.
    All was forgiven once Coheed and Cambria came out to play. …
  • A really long and badly written Green Day review

    Sat 19 Jun – Green Day, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Frank Turner

    I am not the biggest Green Day fan in the world by any stretch of the imagination. I liked Dookie when I was younger, and thought Warning was okay. I know all of the songs that have been on the radio, and I know that their lead singer is called Billie Joe Armstrong. Unfortunately, that's about as far as my Green Day knowledge goes. But, when a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to see Green Day with them, I thought 'sure, why not?'.

    My friends really are awesome. They told me the plan was that we were going to get to London at about eight in the morning, spend the day hanging out in London, and then go to the concert in the evening. What they didn't tell me was what they actually planned to do, which was arrive at London at about eight in the morning, and then stand around in the queue for eight and a half hours waiting to be let into the venue. I was not the happiest bunny when we got to the arena and they revealed this to me. …

    Mon 26 Oct – Green Day, Prima Donna

    Another half review since, once again, I rocked up late and missed Prima Donna and the first 2 and a half songs of Green Day's set, but yeah.

    As expected, the gig was amazing. The usual fantasic quality performance added with Green Day's banter on stage, including dragging a kid up on stage and getting some guy from the crowd to sing Longview (but not before cutting all of the guy's hair off!), the whole time commanding the crowd flawlessly. The setlist was amazing, I don't think any good song was missed off (apart from some obscure older songs for me, but they were obviously not going to be played). My only mild criticism of the gig was that thre was a little bit too much from 21st Century Breakdown, but that's just 'cause I'm not a huge fan of that album. Those songs went down incredibly well with the crowd it seemed, so I'm guessing it wasn't a bad thing.

    Just one more comment about the night (not gig-related):
  • Another Survey Re-Do

    25 Oct 2009, 06:16 by Xefeon

    What are your top ten artists on
    (I'm doing past 12 months)

    1. Green Day
    2. Fall Out Boy
    3. Lucky Boys Confusion
    4. All Time Low
    5. Hey Monday
    6. Alexz Johnson
    7. Marianas Trench
    8. Forever the Sickest Kids
    9. Sugarcult
    10. Panic! at the Disco

    What was the first song you ever heard by Artist #6?
    Oh dang. Something from So Weird. I think it was To Dream About You from a commercial.

    What is your favorite album of Artist #2?
    Gosh, that is so hard. I would say Take This to Your Grave because it's what I first fell in love with, and when I listen to it, it reminds me of why I fell in love with them in the first place. But on the other hand, I really love Infinity on High and Folie à deux. I also loooove the acoustic EP, but it's too short to really be considered for FAVORITE status. I think I'll just stick with it and say TTTYG.

    What is your favorite lyric that Artist #5 has sung?
    "Live faster, love stronger, let us speed up or get blown over"

    How many times have you seen Artist #4 live?

    Fri 16 Oct – Green Day, Prima Donna

    Ja ja, na meer dan een half jaar wachten was het dan eindelijk zover, Green Day kwam naar Nederland. De band die begon in de kleine maar legendarische punk rock club 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California speelde nu voor een zaal van pakweg 10.000 mensen 2 en een half uur de pannen van het dak. Ik was erbij, hoewel wel met slecht zicht zitplaatsen op de 2de ring. Desalniettemin de tijd van mijn leven gehad.

    Net aangekomen in Ahoy pakte we nog even een stukje van het voorprogramma, verzorgd door de Britse band Prima Donna, mee. Heel veel bijzonders was het niet, maar dat maakte niet uit. Het zorgde ervoor dat er nog reikhalsender naar de komst van de drie punk rockers uit Californie werd uitgekeken. Nadat eerst nog iemand in een roze konijnenpak de show stal, door strompelend over het podium twee biertjes te adten, waarna hij omviel en van het podium werd gehaald, klonken de tonen van Song of the Centuryen het publiek wist wat eraan zat te komen.
