Supermassive Wembley Show

At exactly this time last week I walked inside Wembley fucking Stadium and waited for one of the most amazing live bands, the space-rock invaders from Teignmouth, to enter the stage….and let me tell you it was one of the most amazing (if not THE most amazing) concerts I’ve ever been to!!!
We were there quite early to see all the supporting bands and it was totally worth it, because all three of them were absolutely great!! First up I Am Arrows, then The White Lies and finally just before MUSE came up we saw Biffy Clyro.
Then finally and really unexpectedly the lights went out, we heard sirens and people with flags started marching in and rain started pouring down. It was crazy, apocalyptical, very MUSE-like!!!! :D There they were, those three little men in this huge stadium filled with thousands of people who would go crazy to the sound of their music.
They started with Uprising and immediately the whole stadium was singing along with their fists in the air “THEY WILL NOT FORCE US!”
It was so weird, during the whole time I couldn’t really believe that I was actually there!! It was so amazing and of course they delivered a crazy show including a mobile stage, a UFO with an “alien” coming out of it and a Matt Bellamy in a flashing red suit and his flashing blue glasses. :D
I went through many goosebumps moments during the concert, e.g. when Matt stopped singing during Starlight and the whole stadium continued singing the refrain or when they played Man with a Harmonica and and and and…there were too many to name them, and to be honest, most of it (unless I watch video recordings of it) is in a blur….I was there, but it all seemed so unreal. Me and Mel only seemed to realise it the next day that we actually went to Wembley Stadium to see MUSE. I know it sounds crazy XD And it was so weird to see people walking around in MUSE t-shirts all over the city. London is huge, but wherever you went you were sure to see someone you’ve spent last night with at Wembley. That was really weird and funny somehow.
And even if it’s all a little in a blur, I will never forget this truly unforgettable night!!! I can only say again that MUSE deservedly bears the title of being one of the best live bands ever!!!

Well, that’s all I can say for now…it’s been a really busy week. I got back from London on Tuesday and had to go back to work already on Wednesday. I was/am seriously sleep deprived and had no time to do anything fun…so today I’m just trying to ‘recover’ a little. I’ll be back with more news and updates asap :)

I thought it was about time that I added an article about Thirty Seconds to Mars to the music section since I’ve “elevated” them to the level of my favourite bands a while agao :) Well, as always it’s not really information about the band, but what I think about it….or in this case how I became a fan of this band.
I haven’t had much time to do anything enjoyable this week since I’ve been working most of the time. I know I always complained about my tutoring job, but the job I started last week is a thousand times worse…trust me. Driving around to find the most remote houses in this area, knocking on hundreds of doors, getting barked at by countless dogs, asking stupid questions no one wants to answer and handing out light bulbs…sounds like the job of my dreams!! :eek: Plus: when I’m done with it I have to hurry to Völkermarkt, eat my lunch so fast that I almost choke on it and give tutoring lessons :eek: :eek:
But I shouldn’t be complaining, I should be thankful to have these jobs…and after all the first one is only for one month.
After this very stressful week I refused to do any work this weekend. So today I went for a very long walk to the “caves” where me and my cousins always used to play when we were kids. I almost didn’d find it because the area changed so much (well, I guess trees grow a lot in 14 years time :P )
But anyway it was nice to be there and remember all the games we used to play there. I wanted to take some pictures, but the battery of my phone died before I could :( But I’m planning on going there again soon before it gets too cold. Hope I’ll have time for it.
Next weekend I deffinitely won’t have time since I’ll be in London :D Yay!! I’m sooooo looking forward to it. Can’t wait for this week to be over (although it hasn’t even started yet :eek: ) It’s probably going to be a busy week, I’ve got loads on my schedule…so let’s just hope it’ll pass quickly and then I can enjoy my short trip to my beloved English country :D

Layout for you, ticket for me :)

Hello there!! I was thinking it’s time for an update…and her it is: A new layout!! Two layouts in one month, when was the last time that happened on TV, huh? ;)
Well, it’s certainly not one of my favourites, but oh well…I cannot always produce a masterpiece, right? ;P
Hm…other than that I have nothing really interesting to say. I started tutoring again…and it’s still the same pain in the a**. It’s just so annoying when you’re trying to teach people English who don’t really give a shit…but hopfully I won’t have to do it much longer.

Oh, almost forgot!! There is something more interesting…at least for me ;) After two months of waiting my MUSE tickets for Wembley finally arrived today!!
I just love looking at them *lol* Well, not much longer and I’ll be there!!

Well, with that I’ll leave you until the next time :)

Thirty Seconds to WTF!!

Reporting back from Frequency Festival:
OMFG it was…great…unbelievable…awesome…just fucking amazing!!! The weather, the people, THE BANDS!!! Everything was just perfect! And I got to stand second row :D Mission almost accomplished! It wasn’t front row, but second row is almost the same :P Especially, since I only went to the stage at around 4 pm when there already were quite a few people there, but I still somehow ended up at the front :D
Well, at first it was just the waiting part, the bands weren’t too bad, but not exactly my favourites…and annoyingly loud. I really should’ve taken “Ohropax” with me. But I made friends with some really nice people while waiting :)
And then at 7.50 pm Thirty Seconds to Mars finally came on stage…they were really great!! Their whole show and how they got the audience going!! It was crazy and it literally took me only 30 seconds (well, maybe even less) to think “WTF, how crazy is this” ;) After their show I looked like I had taken a shower I was sweating so much from all the jumping and dancing…well, everyone was, which makes it really disgusting but I guess no one really cared at that moment *lol*
I (and I think everyone else) was just a little disappointed that they had to cut short on The Kill because they didn’t have time anymore :( But nevertheless a really great concert which I won’t forget :) Plus, they played Attack, which is one of my favourites, so thank you Thirty Seconds to Mars :D
After them came Billy Talent who where also brilliant. Sometimes they seemed a bit off and I think towards the end Ben had troubles with his voice (no surprise, singing like that can’t be healty for your voice), but nevertheless I think they were great, at least I really enjoyed it!! But the difference to 30STM was that while during 30STM you were able dance and jump and do things, there was no way you could even move during Billy Talent. It was so packed I couldn’t even reach into my bag to get my camera out…
Well, after they were done I wanted to get out, I just needed to sit down somewhere because during Billy Talent I already got cramps in my legs…which wasn’t very pleasent. So after the security managed to pull me out of the crowd I got something do drink and sat down for a while…and then finally went back to find my friends again. We then only watched half of Die Toten Hosen and then went back to the caravan park, because I was totally done for. Nevertheless, I couldn’t sleep all night which means I was up until the next morning when my train arrived at 9.30 am. :o  On the train I got at least some sleep and arrived at 3.15 pm at the train station in Klagenfurt.
Those were two long and exausting days….and you won’t believe how much my calves hurt today there where I had the cramps (I had them all through the nigth), I can hardly stretch them, and that’s just because I was standing there all the time trying not to get pushed away…but it was totally worth it, I would do it again anytime. :D
And I got a new t-shirt as you can see :) I didn’t plan on buying any t-shirts, but when I was walking to the stage I saw this and I just couldn resist ;) I just think it would even look better if there was the triad on it, too…but oh well, I still love it ;P

Frequency, here I come!

Time for another update. I uploaded six new icons. Nothing too fancy. And here they are:

Yes, it’s Mr Leto again :D Hope you like them and maybe even use them.

Well, tomorrow morning I’m off to Frequency Festival. I’m taking the train and I should arrive in St.Pölten at around 1pm. Then a quick drive to the festival area, pick up my wristband, finding my friends and then off to the Race Stage trying to get a spot right at the front. (Which shouldn’t be too difficult at that time, I guess)
I’m so looking forward to it, I’m sure it’s going to be great…I just love concerts, I would like to describe what going to a concert means to me, but I don’t have the time for it now. But I will include a short text which I once came across coincidentally on this tumblr account. And I think it describes spot on what I feel, I could have written it myself:

Have you ever noticed that when youre at a show, you literally forget everything? While you’re there, nothing fucking matters in the world except for you, the band, and the people with you, and sometimes not even them. It’s like therapy for broken souls and broken hearts, broken people. Hearing the songs live is so much different from hearing them through your speakers. You can see the emotion on the singers face, feel the drum beats and basslines thundering through your body. The entire room moves, sometimes as one and sometimes as hundreds of different people. It’s an escape from reality, because sometimes reality sucks so much that the only place to get away from it is to go to a dark room with hundreds of other people that you don’t think you know. But really, who you probably have a lot more in common with than you think. So you sit through the first few bands. Maybe you know them, maybe you don’t. But then it’s time for the headliner, and you can feel the anticipation teeming in the room. Your heart beats faster, you can just feel it coming. It’s like the calm before the storm, because when the band walks onto the stage, you can just lose it. And headlining bands almost always have an epic way of walking onto the stage. Sometimes its the drummer first, drumming beats that hit straight to your core, and other times, they file out one by one, to increasing screams from the crowd. But when that first note is sung from the first song they play, everything slips your mind. It’s just you, the band, and everyone there with you, there for the same reason – release. A release from stress. From worry. From pain. From crying. From all that shit in your life, you escape from it. You scream the words at the top of your lungs like it’s all you’ve got left to hold onto. It’s the best feeling in the world, especially if it’s something you desperately need.
