    day 01 - your favorite song
    Well, it's a really hard question, because it changes all the time. But if I have to pick up exactly one song, I think, it must be Madonna's Bad Girl. Such great memories from my childhood, when I watched this brilliant video million times a day! :-) I know, this song can be far from being perfect, but I also know that there is no song I love more than Bad Girl.
    (PS. Though the first thought was about Zombie, I eventually changed my mind.)

    day 02 - your least favorite song
    Hm, I used to have a tag "hate this song", but about a week ago I decided to delete it, because.. just don't know :-) And about the question - my all-time most hated song is Umbrella by Rihanna. Really annoying, and the singer's vocals sound like she is sick and going to barf X_X

    day 03 - a song that makes you happy
    Ohh, there are many songs that make me happy, but the most working one is Lady Gaga's Bad Romance :D
    And I think I must mention P!nk's Stupid Girls

  • LEAVES' EYES & Kamelot @ProgPower USA, Sept. 10, 2010

    Fri 10 Sep – ProgPower XI USA

    Believe it or not, after four years on last.fm this is my first concert review ever (aside from this which doesn't count). And I'm doing it os_teriyaki style which means MASSIVE TL;DR ABOUT EVERYTHING except I'm kicking it to the NEXT LEVEL because I'm also chronicling the EPIC AND RATHER EVENTFUL JOURNEY or at least what I still remember of it as this was over two weeks ago -_- (EDIT now almost a month ago cuz this took [album artist=theater of tragedy] to write)

    To preface, I'm not really a fan of power metal or progressive music; I haven't bothered to listen to much of either but my current impression of power metal is "sometimes fun but often boring" and my impression of progressive music is "sometimes amazing, often boring, sometimes annoying," and definitely requires a time commitment to appreciate that I'm usually unwilling to give. (Check out my Dream Theater plays... how are they even in my library? I must have fallen asleep with last. …

  • Kamelot, 28th March 2010, with Leaves' Eyes and Adagio

    30 Mar 2010, 15:11 by Oshunai

    Well its now a couple of days after the perfection that was Sun 28 Mar – Kamelot, Leaves' Eyes, Adagio and now my neck has stopped hurting and my voice has started to come back it's time to put my review hat on. Not going to lie, this review is going to be hugely positive, as I really really enjoyed myself at the best gig of 2010 so far for me.

    For some reason for the last couple of years Kamelot always seem to turn up in London on the 27th-29th of March weekend, and just like last year's excellent event with Dream Evil and Amberian Dawn I decided to attend. In any case, I have to admit I was hugely excited even before I reached the queue for the Koko, a fantastic venue in good old Camden Town. Anyway, got in, got a tshirt and so began the gig..

    First up we had Adagio, who I'd seen before and had been disapointed at. The sound quality was abit of a hash, the guitars and vocals were fairly inaudible but all the same they gave a credible performance, and a far superior one to last time. …
