Random Coldplay thoughts...

Recommended Posts

Here's a random coldplay thought... I made a video of a hike I did in TN this year and used High Speed & for the background music. I thought the music was fitting and that you might enjoy! ^.^ (plz don't confuse this with shameless self promotion, I don't expect the video to get a lot of views haha)

I always wonder if this kind of spamming actually is in any way beneficial to the spammers ? I mean, seriously. Imagine if he (probably a bot) even posts this bunch of threads to, let's say, 1000 random subject forums. How many people are gonna check their respective forum and be like 'OMG, I was looking for someone to tell me how to use black magic to solve my love problem, now I know who to call !'

Who knows ... I wonder as well ... guess it will stay one of life's unsolved puzzles for me

maybe he did, maybe he didn't ... does it make like coldplay's music less? not really

Chris has always wanted to salvage what privacy he can and I think there are thousands of videos out there with him being wonderful with fans. If he flips his lid a few times who can blame him?

We'll never know if that's real or not. But, it wouldn't be the first time he flipped out on someone invading his privacy. :joy:

If I am remembering correctly they had just learned they had a miscarriage. I don't blame him one bit.

I could write an essay about why being in the paparazzi is the worst career on the planet.

If everybody would read about celebrities/look at celebrity pictures as much as I do, that wouldn't be much of a career for those people :p Unfortunately it is a way to make money in today's world as this is how demand and supply work together

Speaking of negative stories about band members...I recently came across this bewildering one:

 

https://www.thefreelibrary.com/STROPPY+STARS%3A+%60Coldplay+threatened+to+sue+me%27+Teacher+Jacqueline...-a0108768602

 

This offensive legal threat over such a trivial misunderstanding doesn't fit at all with what we know about Will's character, so I wonder what this was really about. I can only explain it by there being a history between the two parties prior to the incident. We only hear the lady's version of the story, but maybe she did keep bothering them beforehand ? I believe her story for the most part but what put me off slightly was that her first letter to Marianne by her own admission included a request for free Coldplay tickets - who would ask for that, upon first contact (and she says she isn't even a fan) ? Makes me doubt her claim a little that she was just after a teacher-to-teacher chat...

Even if ... why would I make any experience like that public? Even Thumper (from Bambi) teaches kids. If you don't have anything nice to say, best say nothing at all

I mean, i can understand that she wanted to get back at them (the solicitors/Will). The reaction was really way too harsh and inappropriate for what she had done. I don't doubt the authenticity of the incident or the letter, the question is just if that is the whole truth. I wonder what really prompted the reaction since I can't believe that Will himself would go after a misunderstanding with such drastic measures.

This is a really small detail but I noticed that Will explains that he couldn't even get tickets for his mum, but his mother died in 2000 well before the events of the article seem to take place, which makes me wonder if some or all of this is false

Hmm. That's an important detail. Sounds fishy to me.

True. I thought this was an excuse Will made, but then he could just as well said his dad or something. Could indeed be that the rest of the story is false as well.

Yeah, 3 possibilities here

 

a) it's all made up

b) Jacqueline had been annoying before

c) the sollicitors are assholes and Will and his wife didn't know about the letter

 

ranked from most likely to least likely

Yes, although about c) I have to say that while the solicitors may have exaggerated on their own, perhaps on behalf of the label or record company who financed the cab, someone from team Will must have told them about the letters from Jacqueline, so can't be their doings alone.

 

Anyway ! :D

I actually came here to post this wonderful video I'm just watching on Youtube. An in-depth analysis of the different musical elements in Clocks and why the sounds so amazing.

I saw Imagine Dragons this evening. It was a very good concert. The visuals and overall energy was great.

2 things as it relates to Coldplay-

 

-The energy of the lead singer is what makes a great rock concert. If the frontman is just going through the motions, the concert comes off as very unconvincing. Dan Reynolds (the frontman) reminds me of Chris. Even though neither of them are notable dancers or musical "prodigies", they get by on emotional vocals and stage presence/energy. Not surprising since Dan says he was inspired by Coldplay (Parachutes specifically).

 

-After seeing this concert, still nothing else compares (;)) to a Coldplay concert. It makes me appreciate everything Coldplay puts into a concert more after seeing other concerts.

I'm reading Roadie by Matt McGinn (a must read for any Coldplay/ live music fan) and it was written right at the end of Viva era. Then I found this great BBC concert on YouTube that I'm sure has already been posted here. It is worth posting again. What a fantastic set list. I'd give anything to be able to go to an intimate live set like this!!!
