  1. Life In Technicolor + Great opener one of their best, love the Indian and Indie vibes, the Drumming is some of Will's most rocking and how the final chord rings into Cemeteries of London is great ^^ -It's too short luckily Life In Technicolor ii exists :D XMarksTheSpot [emoji23] Those Who Are Dead Are Drifting Through Outer Space~
  2. Well that's good :3 Eh it was Christmas :)
  3. I second this notion. And I hope you had a wonderful Christmas? :) (I apologize if it's late btw)
  4. Same here but me being who I am will sway them If I see an opening... ^^
  5. I love this line of throught I truly do. My whole thing is stay positive, informed and open to anything. And reject the haters and negativity.
  6. Dont worry I will and everything you said my thoughts exactly. My whole reason I really love IV was... Lucas used WWII gun camera phototage to make the starfighter battles look real and timeless. Stop motion and that made the Death Star scene a classic piece of film history. He used the 1940 Battle of Britain stock for the X-Wings diving in. The whole turn over and dive was what the RAF pilots would do with their Spitfires and Hurricanes at the start of a bomber shoot down or dogfights with Me109s. Super fan over here btw. Also Ben Burt the sound designer since IV is a genius. I really love hi
  7. I can relate with this. I saw II and III in theatres for my birthday as a kid. (May 16th and both came out around or on that date.) So I was definitely immersed in the hype back then. I saw the Original Trilogy a bit later and it still wows me everytime I watch it. Those movies are what made me love the Star Wars universe. (The Empire has always been my favorite faction btw.) I'm a gearhead so I love the technology in the SW franchise. But I prefer the OT over the PT tech. Then after I read Timothy Zahn's trilogy I became a diehard fan. But to me VII was unnecessary and unwarranted. I'm more o
  8. 42 Moving To Mars Atlas X&Y And Twisted Logic. Oh and I Ran Away cause of a certain someone LOL. EDIT: Spies, Crest Of Waves, Sleeping Sun, Green Eyes, Things I Don't Understand, The World Turned Upside Down and definitely Prospekts March as well.
  9. Couldn't agree more! :) The first time I listened to it I was like huh, "Where is the rest of the song" :confused: when it ended. It needs to be longer IMO but at the same time I kinda like how it's short.
  10. I swear it's Will that's his voice!
  11. Eh I'm on the fence about it. I mean J.J. Abrahams is not exactly my favorite director. Also I just think of all the hype Episode I got and well you know...
  12. And the mix of clean and dirty playing on HLH is just great :D
  13. Especially his backing tracks and the layering he does at the end of ETIAW ^^
  14. Not really life has thrown me many curve balls :p Yeah two Washington (Never been but it looks gorgeous!) and Texas for nostalgia reasons :D
  15. Yeah I figured but I wouldn't want to live there lol. Its alright but having traveled and lived in so many states I get listless quickly xD
  16. I totally agree but I think you need to have your fellow band members in synch and supporting you. J seems to really love what he does now cause he can try his hand at anything and have fun. And Guy and Will are really getting a voice now. I mean thats why I enjoy their last 3 albums so much along with this one! ^^ The sound of them coming alive and together is inspiring. It makes me want to get up to applaud them. I knew they could be more. But what they have done just blows me away :)
  17. They are so universal and eager they could take on anything and suceed :D
  18. No no I know what everyone means but electronic or its start gated drumming/modified drumming has been around since the 80s. In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins is one the first examples of it and he was playing a real kit they just modified it through studio trickery :) Hell as early as the 60s drummers modified their sound especially in the later parts of that decade. (Psychedelia and early progressive comes to mind.) Anyway its nothing new and I for one am glad they are embracing it ^^
  19. All this is so true. I love how Guy and Will are coming to the fore through their friendship and musicianship. I mean on Adventure of a Lifetime they play funk, something Guy digs and Will seems happy/enjoy to be accompanying him by playing a solid beat. And the same with AHFOD they play disco and those too are having a blast! I belive it's bringing the best out of Chris and J as well :) I couldn't believe my ears when I heard him playing those funky riffs on AOAL the first time I listened to it! :D He really came out of his shell on this album! ^^
  20. Also I dabble in playing the bass. I recently lost my guitar to my former friend. So yeah no way to play along :( That and to get better and practice it :)
  21. You grew up in Italy that's awesome! I would love to visit it one day :) Exactly but like you said sometimes it does affect you. I go by that motto too and I judge things lightly for the the most part. Ive been proven wrong ro many times to count when I dont abide by it. And I used to always say its crap and be edgy. But now I enjoy almost anything. And its a much better life to lead! Oh wow funny thing is I live where she is from Louisville (Pronounced Lou-vule here xD) also Muhammad Ali is too. Tom Cruise is from Corbin and so is the fast food brand KFC. And the awesome Indie band Cage The E
  22. Well you know when thats your cultute you just love it. That is true and I can see people are eh about it. But you just have to go there and find out for your self :D (And Id take it over Las Vegas any day living there for 7 years was the worst time of my life. Due to the city, people and experiences. It's great to visit or retire there though. And I have to admit I was beautiful too in its own way.) Yep two things I long for in life :) I mean living in Kentucky is such a drag for me :(
  23. Sure just direct me to one :) I know right he writes lines that just resonate with your soul. And I love those type of guitarists. Its the reason I love Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Jimi Hemdrix, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and all the greats. They wrote such moving licks and riffs. Something still leaves me in awe.
  24. Well just the feel and the people from there. Alot of personal reasons too. Texas is beautiful it's like 5 states in one. And me being Hispanic I loved San Antonio alot great Tex/Mex :D Oh and going to the beach as a kid was great and all the wide open sky ^^
