Happy day ! - received my fabulous Secret Santa package from @iamsue in the post then spotted this AHFOD Christmas tree in a shop window. :heart::grinning:20181203_124104.thumb.jpg.080ff46d2382acd91a3f0e50eddd5ee5.jpg 20181203_124104.thumb.jpg.080ff46d2382acd91a3f0e50eddd5ee5.jpg

No, I’m driving crazy from live Nation

I really hope Coldplay will finally gonna replace them in some day (I wish for it since 2006!)

I send them an email and asked them what’s going on with the pre ordered of the gold package

And I got this answer:

Hello,

 

Thank you for choosing Live Nation Merchandise. We are still expecting to receive these items in our warehouse on or around Dec. 7. Once we receive the items in your order they will be processed and shipped as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

 

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Paige

Live Nation Merchandise Customer Service

 

So I asked them if there’s any chance that I’ll get in on the 7.12

And then I got this answer for them:

Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting the Live Nation. I am very sorry, we are experiencing a delay in getting your order shipped. Our apologies while we work to get this resolved as quickly as possible. We have refunded your shipping for the inconvenience.

For my writing class I'm doing a presentation on the pros and cons of Spotify. I looked up the top ten artists on Spotify of all time to talk about how it's hard for new artists to become famous through Spotify. Coldplay was in the top ten and I'm using them as an example of an artist that hasn't released anything in a while but has been around for a long time....I really hope no one has heard about los unidades since I really needed another example haha

Good luck with the presentation, Carolina!

That's bad news. Good luck with your order!

 

I'm hoping I'll be checking coldplaying more often now for the next couple months at least. Always great being here, and hearing from you guys :)

Indeed, welcome back Antdrew! :)

So Debs did an AMA over on reddit, and its still kinda disappointing the same old jokes are being made about Coldplay :/

I know it shouldn't get me down, but it does somehow. I get that not every will like them (even our own fans don't like them sometimes!), but why make such nasty comments directly to someone who has an actual in with the band?

 

On a happier note, there were some nice nuggets of info or at least confirmations in that AMA, so i'd say its worth browsing over.

I was (and still am) upset at that yesterday. If you don't like the band, why bother clicking just to leave negative comments and bring others down?

It bugs the hell out of me.

 

To this day I have never seen and never will see the 40 Year Old Virgin. Paul Rudd can suck an egg lol.

So funny because I just saw Paul Rudd in the Ant Man movies. I don't blame the actor exactly, if anything the writers, but I wouldn't even say that. It's really the ppl who perpetuate the joke just to bully others; not cool.

 

Debs did well to avoid the trolls. I feel perhaps she should have done the AMA on r/coldplay itself instead of r/AMA where its a mixed bag.

 

Or, y'know, right here on coldplaying?

From what I heard, that scene was totally improvised. It was just an improv bit that they kept in. I think the director was a fan of Coldplay though and kept it in cause he thought it was funny.

 

Anyway, yeah not really faulting him. Like you said it's more the people who keep it going. But I do wish Deb's did it on the Coldplay subreddit or on here.

I love Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends so much, I sometimes need to remind myself how lucky I was to have experienced the Viva tour on September 9th, 2009. Sadly I can barely remember how amazing it must've sounded, and I wasn't such a hardcore fan yet back then... Oh what I would give for just a moment to experience that same day again....

Odds are the rest of the band might have been a little more famous if Chris wasn't the only one in the Yellow music video?

Can someone remake the Yellow video with Chris doing the same thing except Will, Jonny and Guy walking behind him doing the exact same thing as Chris.

Yes I have entered - fingers crossed I win a copy I note that the bids for buying a copy is already at £500 and the reserve has not yet been reached. I do soooo hate it when they do not say what the reserve is, it would save time and energy if we knew so we could decide whether or not to bid.

Hey everyone. It seems I won one of these blue vinyls :):):):):) Winning bid for #1/50 was £650. Mine cost me 2 entries @ £5 each and now £9 P&P. Over the moon :):):):)

I' bought some new Christmas lights.

It gives you this feeling of life in technicolor, doesn't it?

Oooh Christmas lights, keep shining on

(I hope they always will)

It looks simple but beautiful at the same time!

 

Also like how casually there is the MX album leaning against the window. :D

Clearly unpopular opinion apparently but I am Oldplay age and like Chainsmokers and think SJLT was a pretty genius move by the band.

^Maybe unpopular amongst Oldplayers, but that's fine!

 

I mean, it was genius move in terms of making a ton of streaming $'s and reaching a younger market of music listeners. I'll admit the song has a catchy melody and I like the instrumental build towards the final drop.

 

But also, the song is literally just Roses + Closer (two songs I do like) + Chris talking nonsense. So creatively its a pile of muck compared to everything else Coldplay's done the last few eras.

 

Also, as an Oldplayer, I cringe thinking of SJLT compared to Spies. It's like ... how could the same band write these songs? But then again, that's why we love them, isn't it?

That's so true actually. It is so weird how much bands and even people can change over time. Like besides anybody's ideas on what they think is good or bad. A song like spies compared to SJLT are just so different. Lol now I think I'll have to listen to parachutes again.

So Chris Martin is in London and attended Mick Jagger's party last night. Does this mean he might do a performance for a charity somewhere as he has done in the past?

I am with you completely. Oldplay age here too and I've always loved SJLT. I am not a big Chainsmokers fan but didn't mind the awesome song that came from this collab.

Yeah I think it is fun. I do think their first two albums are masterpieces that have not been beaten by the other albums (even though I appreciate Viva I actually listen to Viva songs the least). But I do like every album no matter how different it seems.

Does anyone know where a Coldplay Calendar 2019 can be bought ? I've had an unofficial one for the past few years but there's no sign, online, of any this year ! I can't live with an empty space on the wall where it should be ! :weary_face: I'm in the UK.

I wish the Blue Room EP gets a re-release on 12'' vinyl someday.

And add some bonus track there (the early version of 'Spies', which reportedly was from the same sessions).

Why weren't Jonny, Guy and Will invited?
