Something different this time: Phil Collins - Finally the first farewell tour, Paris, 2004. Too bad I wasn't there. But at least I got the DVD. Probably one of his best concerts ever. The beginning already is great...





And I came across something that is actually quite old (1996), but I never saw it in the 90s or later. This guy certainly had his moment. Even if I could sing, I wouldn't have the guts to do it with Sting in front of such an audience...

Skyrim Soundtrack Disc 3- 42 Blood And Steel - YouTube

As a sometimes-writer of fantasy, it's an enormous inspiration.
They are making a MMORPG version of the game by the way (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), which I think is a great decision.

I'm a mood music kind of guy:
Mary Fahl - "Going Home" and "Ariel"
Enya - "On Your Shore", "The River Sings"

But I like the lighter stuff too, when the mood strikes:
The Tokens: "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
Toto: Africa
My custom CD with those songs also has a really haunting Itzak Perlman redition of "Hatikva"

My favorites for next weeks German Eurovision national final:



Sadly, the favorites are "Söhne Mannheims", which, even without their omnipotent superstar Xavier Naidoo, would likely even win by reading the German phone book... because they have the bigger fan club.

I'm not a fan. But this choice is way better than Lena, which is a good Nora Tschirner impersonator with iffy and pubertal behaviour during interviews.

Not to mention No Angels, or even worse, Guildo Horn. Just the reason why I don't watch this anyway. It's really a bad-taste-event.

No need to insult Nora Tschirner. Also, calling Guildo Horn worse than "No Angels" requires some many explanations... not that we had seen worse, far worse there. But there had also been good sides of the story. And bad taste event was something of the dark and evil past, when we constantly used the same chords for our ESC songs. Or at least warned the audience to "run and hide".

Some German candidates really deserve to be forgotten quickly... the winning songs in the ESC of the last ten years have not been trash, and sending trash to the contest does not seem to be a good idea. Quite contrary, last years song was very good even without the ESC context.

Not at all. She is a good actress, and a lovely person anyway. Actually the type of woman which I like. Much like Felicity Jones





By pubertal behaviour I meant Lena, not Nora. She is really annoying, sometimes.

"I believe I spider." (Clixoom interview)

And played the Halluzinelle in the Ijon Tichy series. The hardest role there.

She can be quite amusing most of the time, if you don't bore her to death. Some sort of a diva, yes. And on pubertal behaviour...hey, she was 18. Nothing would be more boring than a 18 year old new artist, with the manners of a 50 year old....

Not really... the song was from 1996... and you still remember it. Yes, its cruel maybe, but I can still see him climb around in Birmingham.

I meant "Euphoria", which was last years winning song. By Sweden.

Still, "Satellite" was the best song of the year, which says a lot about the other songs. Contrary to "no, no, never", which was a successful German failure, "Satellite" is not really played in radio anymore. A too nervous song to enjoy for long.

Bluegrass and Jazzy music. I really don't have any favorite songs, I guess I just like them all!

I've been listening to a lot of Skrillex lately. Also I've been listening to DJ AlexS and the Balloon Party album. Also I've been making music of my own!

Knorkator, the full "Hasenchartbreaker" album. Especially the songs "Hardcore" and "Ick wer zun Schwein" are today pretty suitable for work.
