• Painting: Jupiter Island

    I heard the Song Jupiter Island from Porcupine Tree about 37 times a row while painting this image. It's made in the style of Roger Dean and is based on the lyrics of Jupiter Island.
    Painted with Photoshop. The song is... strange... not like any Porcupine Tree song. But lovely... somehow... awwww pinkyblingblingglitter!

    So here we are at five thousand scrobbles. The number is actually somewhere around 10,000, but that's not taking into account that I reset the count on the new year.

    My music tastes have really changed since then. Radically. I wasn't really into music (definitely not that level that I am presently!) and my little counter would count up ever so slowly. It's now only been a few months and I've nearly tripled that value it was only many months ago. Enough numbers, let's talk music!

    So, the charts are as follows:

    #1 – Pink Floyd - 205 plays
    First Heard: This one is a toughy. I first heard Floyd so many years ago, my age was probably in the single digits then. If I had to wager a guess, it was probably something off either: The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon or Division Bell (my mother's favorite Floyd album). The actual song itself, no idea. Maybe Money? Another Brick in the Wall? Who knows, it's a mystery. I know for sure they are a great band, and that's all that counts, right?
  • PORCUPINE TREE + ANATHEMA live in Amsterdam 05-12-07

    It was my second time seeing Anathema, my third time seeing Porcupine Tree and my fourth time seeing Steven Wilson. Nevertheless, the goosebumps were still as intense as they were the first time.

    The gig was played at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam. It's a nice venue, it was big enough for everybody and it left every person enough space to move.

    Anathema opened the evening with my (and a lot of other people's) favourite Fragile Dreams. It was an amazing opening song and also the climax of their show. I have never been that into Anathema, but they performed a nice show. During two songs a female singer sang along with the band and she did a great job. The band used a lot of psychedelic and distortion effects, mainly with vocals. This was okay, but in my opinion they overdid it a little. All and all, a nice warm up for Porcupine Tree.

    Then, after a short wait, the lights went out for the second time. Porcupine Tree entered the stage during an atmospheric intro. …
