  1. Hi @lennyrott1, sorry it took so long to reply! I went through a really bad time a couple of weeks ago, but fortunately I had a vacation right after that. It did wonders to get out of the city for a week and just rest. This time of year is challenging for me anyway even without all the stress of work because the days are getting shorter and I spend most of the daylight hours inside. I'm sorry to hear you also are unhappy in your job. It's a tricky thing, to do a job you're not happy with just for the income. On the other hand, seeing so many being unemployed makes me feel lucky to still have a
  2. Hi Gustavo, welcome to the forum! Ghost Stories is also my favorite album, can't beat listening to it on headphones. So many heartbreaking but beautiful songs!
  3. Hi Gideon and thank you for the kind words! I'm a bit better now after going through a real low a couple of weeks ago. When you're down it seems so hard to get up again, but this is not the first time and thankfully I've always managed to get through it. It also helps to have loving parents and listening to Coldplay! They really have made it their life's mission to make people feel better about themselves. Chris has a way of coming up with lyrics that always cheer me up, one example being Miracles (Someone Special) that I've been listening to a lot lately. That song has the perfect last words
  4. Hello Everyone! I briefly returned to the forums in May after a long absence but then vanished again until now. I've been struggling the whole year, it all started back in January and the covid situation just made it all the more worse. From reading the posts here seems I'm not the only one having a hard time. I feel stuck in a job I'm not happy in anymore, haven't been for a couple of years now. At the same time I recognize I'm lucky to still have a job that has given me a chance to live a relatively normal life. I have a roof over my head, a car and some money to buy a Coldplay rec
  5. Haha, good answer! 🤣 Probably about 20+ years ago, I only do walks now! When was the last time you sent a postcard?
  6. About an hour ago! Fish sticks and french fries for lunch, exciting right? 😀 When was the last time you were genuinely surprised about something?
  7. Hi M, good to see you're still here! Time really does fly, seems like years go by every time I close my eyes. I look forward to reading your posts on the forum! 🙂 Charlie
  8. The last tv series I've watched that left a strong impression was After Life, So heartbraking but hopeful and funny at the same time. I was literally in tears one minute and laughing the next. Highly recommended!
  9. Thank you Divutian! Don't ever give up and believe in love are the message we need when times seem dark! ❤️ Charlie
  10. Hello everyone! I've been away so long that I thought it appropriate to re-introduce myself. I joined Coldplaying in May 2018 and was pretty active for a while, but then life took over like it usually does. I've just been too exhausted to be social online, though this is the only forum I've really missed being part of. The one thing that hasn't changed in these two years is my love for Coldplay. I've kept up to date with everything the band has done, bought Everyday Life the day it came out and watched every new video. When I joined two years ago I said Coldplay is in their own way changi
  11. I've been away from the forums for a while, but this documentary news is the greatest! I've already booked my ticket to a screening for November 14.!:cool:
  12. Wow, cool shirt! You look really happy!
  13. Right now melting in the summer heat and listening to my favourite Coldplay album Ghost Stories... :sun::sun::sun::cool:Have a happy summer everyone!
  14. Thank you iamsue for your kind words! Trust is everything to me, whether it is between friends or co-workers, and having that trust broken by someone always hits me hard. I had a rough week that felt like all the energy just drained out of me, I'm doing better now. I just hope I could brush off these negative things easier and get on with my life without letting them get me down. The positive message that comes across in so many of Coldplay songs is exactly what drew me to their music and continues to cheer me up. Chris singing "Don't lose your trust" is just the kind of wonderful positivity
  15. I've been kinda down lately and can't shake it off... I have a tendency to get really depressed when someone breaks my trust and it gets difficult to deal with that person in the future. Maybe I'm too sensitive, but I try to play by the rules even if others don't. Life is difficult enough without these disappointments... :pensive:
  16. Happy Birthday to Ghost Stories indeed! My favourite album so far, it maintains the mood so well throughout...
  17. I would LOVE to see a decent documentary in addition to a concert film!
  18. Yeah, many artists do make songs primarily about their own life. Then there are artists that put on a persona, a role of some kind that allows them to sing about life without revealing themselves, they don't like to be known that intimately. Chris Martin has said his lyrics are like a musical diary, so it's always personal.
  19. I'm grateful that spring has finally arrived in Helsinki and the days are getting warmer!:sun::cool: Downside is the allergic reactions I get from some trees starting their pollination.
  20. If it's an already established artist that names an album by his/her/their name it may have the same motivation of "this is me, this is a personal record". That's how I would interpret it at least... I assume it's the fans that come up with the unofficial names, though it wouldn't surprise me if it was the record label's doing. It might be frustrating for the marketing people to sell an album/albums that have no name other than the artists!:D
  21. Yeah, self-titled/unnamed albums always get a nickname sooner or later!
