Liveshowlogg

Filed under: Anbefales, Bror — Tags: , , , , — Invi @ 00:16

Long time no see, ja? Jeg antar at bror har holdt dere oppdatert, dere som har noe med saken å gjøre.

Without further ado,  her er loggen fra liveshowet bror og jeg hadde i anledning «Wahey, vi får høre igjennom det nye albumet til Placebo!» Kos dere.

<B>
-MERRY MIDNIGHT
-AND
-GO!
<Invi>
-GOGOGO
<B>
-I… Am… In love.
<Invi>
-You know, if this had been released alone, I would’ve played it over and over again a million times.
-Just like I did with the Battle for the Sun and For What it’s Worth.
<B>
-Same.
-We should perhaps state what song we’re talking about-
<Invi>
-Oh yes.
-Hello, guys! This is Invi and B speaking, welcome to the live show
-We’ve both put off listening to Battle for the Sun – the album – until now, just to entertain you guys instead.
<B>
-In other words, you better be damn grateful.
<Invi>
-We’re also going to completely ignore your input and ramble on as usual.
-We were just talking about Kitty Litter.
-Now moving on to Ashtray Heart.
<B>
-I’m loving the background random game-ish music. Like the Tetris interlude in For What It’s Worth.
<Invi>
-And the random… Backgrund spanish?
-The background tune is oddly soothing.
<B>
-I’m betting Stefan wrote that.
<Invi>
-I thought that too, I mean, it’s a lot like the bass lines from Black Market Music.
-It’s a lot like Placebo’s bass lines in general, really.
<B>
-I’m a bit too distracted to pck up lyrics right now, it annoys me
-Odd ending.
<Invi>
-I’m not so sure I liked those last five seconds, but the rest…. Bliss.
-Okay, moving on to the next song, which is the title track.
-…. we’ve heard this so many times by now we know it by heart, but hey, anything for you guys.
<B>
-I actually like the repetitiveness of this.
<Invi>
-Yeah, I don’t get why people have been all «ZOMGWTFBBQ Placebo are doing repetitive things!»
-I mean…
-… you guys, that’s sort of what they do.
-You just haven’t noticed before.
<B>
-Hahah, clever move, Invi.
-For those of you who have turned the side chat off: Fifty people just posted something along the lines of «FUUUU!»
<Invi>
-I, I, I, I, I have stared down the barrel of a gun, gun, gun, gun, gun….
-I’m going to start talking like that.
<B>
-Oh goodness, Invi please don’t, we know what happened the last time you decided to do something like that.
<Invi>
-What? That was FUN!
-Meh, the sound quality of this isn’t too good.
-I can’t wait until I get the LPs.
<B>
-You do realize that giving up FOOD was a seriously foolish move, right?
<Invi>
-Meh, shut up, I gained weight beforehand anyway to get through may.
<B>
-Whatever you say…
-Actually, that’s not true, I usually argue when it comes to about 90% of the things you say.
<Invi>
-I think it’s more like 80&.
–%
<B>
-And thus, dear audience, you know it’s mutual.
-Okay, switching songs.
-Next is… For What It’s Worth.
<Invi>
-Gosh, I remember hearing this for the first time, glued to the BBC One online player.
-That was fun.
<B>
-Government funded channels, I love thee.
<Invi>
-Come on, walk with me…
-I made an outsider friend of mine watch the video for this
-And she said she didn’t like videos with labels trying to add depth to things
-I’m not quite sure what I think about the video for this yet, but Placebo have never really been big on music videos
<B>
-True… They’re not of the epic kind, but they’re still awesome
-Just not in a huge, glorious way
-Like… The video for Pure Morning is awesome.
<Invi>
-Very true.
-I think it’s a good thing that the video for For What it’s Worth isn’t as epic as the song.
-Anyway, next song iiiis..
<B>
-Devil in the Details.
-Oh, I like this, very classic Placebo.
<Invi>
-Perhaps a bit too classic, thus far.
<B>
-I think the album as a whole needs that.
-Lyrics-wise this is AWESOME.
<Invi>
-Chills, yes.
-Quick question, how many of you are listening along?
<B>
-Anyone waiting for the «real» release?
-In that case, MP3 or real CD/LP?
<Invi>
-For those with additional chat turned off: A couple of dozen people are listening along, about the same amount are waiting.
-How many have listened through it beforehand?
-This has a real kick to it, by the way, I like it
-It’s sidetracked, but not too much.
<B>
-I really want to read the lyrics for this, what I’ve picked up so far has been great.
-You can’t see it, of course, but Crumbles has got major goosebumps.
<Invi>
-Awwwwh!
<B>
-Okay, next song
-Bright Lights.
<Invi>
-I like the new drummer.
-This is a tad bit… Killers-esque?
<B>
-Only up until the point where the vocals kicked in.
<Invi>
-The sound image of this is really good, but a bit haunting.
-Which doesn’t have to be a bad thing, of course.
<B>
-You know what I’d like to hear?
<Invi>
-(I forgot to say, only about five people have cheated on us and listened through this beforehand.)
<B>
-A song where Molko sings… all the way through. No frequent breaks, fluid singing.
-This is somewhat close, but not enough.
<Invi>
-Hm, yeah, I think I know what you mean
-I agree, that would be interesting, but it would be less… Molko?
-This song is REALLY cute.
<B>
-Okay, next song up is Speak in Tongues
-Major expectations for this one
-Molkos favorite and all
<Invi>
-Okay, forget what I said, THIS is really cute.
-In a way.
-The melodic backbeat continues, and it’s awesome.
-This is epic in a different way than what our belived reviewer was talking about.
-B, should we tell them our summer plans?
<B>
-Nope.
<Invi>
-Probably for the better….
-I do wonder how they’ll pull this off live, though.
<B>
-I’m sure they’ve found a clever way.
-Pretty moaning!
<Invi>
-I knew you’d like that…
<B>
-Invi!
<Invi>
-Don’t let them have their way!
-Don’t give in to yesterday!
<B>
-Never!
-The problem with these songs is that they’re so complex you really need something with better sound quality than this fan preview.
<Invi>
-Yeah. Listening to it properly the first time will probably feel all new.
<B>
-And… Next song
-The Never-Ending why
<Invi>
-EEP!
-My heartbeat just went to fuck.
<B>
-Invi, darling, it always does.
-«Damn you all to hell»
-Oh
-Invi
-You have a little friend who will like this song a lot
<Invi>
-XYLOPHONE
-Wait, what?
-_I_ like this a lot.
<B>
-Both of you, of course.
-But you’re sort of past this stage.
<Invi>
-That’s what you get for being born into things, I guess.
<B>
-Side chat: Now spammed with a ton of «lucky bastard»s and «poor you!»s.
<Invi>
-B, are all of these our people?
<B>
-Close.
-Anyway. The song.
<Invi>
-I’m going to be playing this song a ton of times.
<B>
-*Snickers*
-Next song-
<Invi>
-Damnit, I wanted to say that
-NEXT SONG: JULIEN
-… is this the right album?
<B>
-It’s…. A froggish techno beat?
<Invi>
-Molko’s voice is, if I may say so, teh sex here.
-But seriously, the beat is scaring me
-Argh, creepy guitar
-I’m seriously creeped out right now.
<B>
-Find a friend in whom you can confide!
-Ah, grammar, how I love thee ❤
<Invi>
-Break? EEP.
-I’m going to have to listen to this quite a few times before my brain can grasp it, I think.
<B>
-Julien, you’re being taken for a ride!
-Hahah, this song, like the last one, does fit very nicely for a little friend of yours.
<Invi>
-Stop making me think <.<
<B>
-You’ll figure it out.
-Julien, you’re a slow-motion suicide!
-I like that.
<Invi>
-I’m thinking «Slow-motion suicide» is a major darling of Molko’s.
<B>
-Yes, and it hasn’t been killed.
-Oh, the irony.
-I’d like to hear more of that violin.
<Invi>
-Next!
-Happy You’re Gone
-Is it just me, or does the acoustic guitar clash a bit here?
<B>
-This sounds like it’s been patched together by a handful of other Placebo songs
-Special K + English Summer Rain + Pure Morning, perhaps
<Invi>
-Yeah…
-Ths album has a lot of mood swings.
<B>
-Just like us!
<Invi>
-It feels a bit like it used to be one long unity, which has been cut up at random points, jumbled and glued together.
<B>
-You know you’re going to have to descramble it.
<Invi>
-I thought we weren’t supposed to be talking about that?
-There’s that violin we were missing!
<B>
-I think there should be a combination of more violin and more Molko singing fluidly.
<Invi>
-Oh, gosh, YES!
-And now… Breathe Underwater
-Hahahahah
-The intro made me laugh,, literally
<B>
-This is really good.
<Invi>
-Breathe underwater, I’m coming up for air
-… ?
<B>
-Invi, no french punctuation!
-This is more symbol-heavy than it sounds.
-It’s the kind of song you could encounter both in a small mosh pit and in an art exhibit.
<Invi>
-In other words, you’ll be blasting it at Burning Man this year.
-I’m thinking…. There are a lot of things you can breathe in.
<B>
-Yes indeed
-You can even do like Molko is telling you and stop breathing!
-So, what’s your impression of the new drummer so far?
<Invi>
-I really liked his part in Battle for the Sun
-I think he’s doing great.
-(Moving to Come Undone)
-Somewhat fresh, but still Placebo.
<B>
-… and he just so happens to be young and hot.
-I wonder how he landed this gig.
<Invi>
-By landing Molko, perhaps.
-But he IS good.
<B>
-I have to admit, the title of this made me think nasty things.
<Invi>
-I like the guitar in this.
<B>
-Yes, me too.
-Crumbles doesn’t, though, apparently.
-(Side chat now yells «FUUU» at Crumbles)
<Invi>
-Who are all these people?
<B>
-Nevermind them.
<Invi>
-… whatever you say
-(20% of the time)
<B>
-Oh, clever you.
<Invi>
-This is another one of the songs I feel I really need to hear in better quality.
<B>
-If you people are up to it, we’ll do a second runthrough, with lyric sheets, once we get the actual album?
-KINGS OF MEDICINE
-Sorry, just had to beat you to it.
<Invi>
-Stupid you.
-HAHAH.
-This made me throw a Placebo-infused giggle.
<B>
-More clapping.
-There are many instances of random clapping, violin and synthesisterish sound on this album.
<Invi>
-I think it adds fluidity to it all
-Which is important, seeing that there is a thematic unity here
-…. which exceeds clappng and violins.
<B>
-I really feel as if I can relate to this song.
<Invi>
-Me too.
-… I think we both know why.
<B>
-Chat: None of your business.
-Unless you already are too well-informed.
<Invi>
-Gasp! The radical radical honesty shut off!
<B>
-… it cut me off early
-«Don’t leave me here» *Snap*
<Invi>
-Same.
-… let’s listen to the last track again.
-By the way, have they changed the beginning of Battle for the Sun?
-I think it sounded somewhat odd
<B>
-Hm, I think you might be right, it could have been a tad more direct now
<Invi>
-We’ll have to look into that.
<B>
-This has more of that spanish-ish flavour.
-okay, let’s compare intros.
<Invi>
-I’d say the drum part in the beginning is a big lower.
<B>
-Yeah, I think that’s it.
-Anyway… I guess that’s it!
<Invi>
-Yep.
-Seems like people want another runthroug, so I guess we’ll see you all next week.

Bloggpost

Kan du se det?Jeg har noen hyggelige, halvferdige innlegg jeg ikke kommer til å bli ferdig med med det første. Det har gått alt for lenge siden forrige ordentlige  post, så her er noen helt tilfeldige greier – så jeg får startet igjen.

«Silent agreements» er geniale, og jeg elsker dem. Kroppsspråk er uansett rundt 90-97% av kommunikasjonen. Det vet hvem som helst som har sendt lange blikk over til den andre siden av rommet eller prøvd å blokkere noen ute av en samtale de snublet inn i på feil tidspunkt.

Når jeg på ett eller annet tidspunkt flytter ut og har kapasitet til å ha kjæledyr, skal jeg ha en ilder og en sphynx. Finere katterase skal man lete lenge etter, og ildere er klart de mest fantastiske husgjestene man kan ha.

Det er seks dager igjen til den 20., og 55 dager igjen til 8. juni. Jeg gleder meg som en liten (heroinavhengig og hyperaktiv) unge.

Las ned singelen gratis her.

Akkurat nå sikler jeg på box set-et. Noen som har £ 70 til overs til meg? (Ja, jeg har spurt bror. Han har ikke hundre dollar til overs for noen av oss.) Bankkontoen min ser forferdet på meg så fort jeg tenker tanken, men allikevel vurderer jeg å fôre gamle minner med halvparten av det jeg tjener på en måned. Dårlig idé? Ja. Virker det allikevel helt greit å ikke spise noe på en måned og ikke ha penger til toget? Ja.

Her er et bittelite bilde:

Kan du se det?Kan du se det?

Tiny picture is tiny!

I morgen er det skole, og jeg skal opp kvart over fem. Som vanlig. Jeg kom meg ut av senga rundt fire i dag, i passe tid til å lage middag. Nei, jeg lærer aldri.

Z og jeg spiller brettspill på nett. Jeg taper. Det er koselig.

Gosh, så våken jeg er.
