  1. Thanks. Can you tell what it says? I made it myself quite a while ago. I'd still like to find the song though.
  2. I remember hearing the song quite a bit in (I believe) the summer of 2004 but it may have been 2003 on an alternative radio station here in the Metro Detroit area in the U.S.. on 89xradio.com The Stills "Still in Love Song" came out on the "Logic Will Break Your Heart" album in October of 2003 and I remember the two getting airplay at the same time and thinking that they are similar. It has a steady drum beat throughout most of the song and I was reminded of it when I heard the chorus on Newton Faulkner's "Dream Catch Me" The vocals and the way the guitar stops and then starts again. Especially in the first chorus (between 1:14 and 1:25) http://youtube.com/watch?v=DB6Wv1wEDw0 So, those are a few things to go on. Unfortunately, I really can't remember any of the lyrics or any possible band names. I think my best bet may be to contact the radio station, but I thought I'd try here, too.
  3. First of all, the blogger is female. Secondly, I usually frown upon people who don't display proper grammar and/or spelling on the internet, just because they don't have to or are too lazy. It's just ingrained in me to use punctuation, grammar and spelling. However, poor grammar and spelling + no intelligence for me at least, is bad. I give her credit for expressing her opinion and a negative opinion about something that most people have stated a positive opinion about and agree with her that the last two CD's do not compare to their first two. X&Y and Viva la Vida are more simple and not as distinguished as their first two. After hearing X&Y a countless amount of times, it mostly sounds the same and doesn't have a lasting appeal like the first two albums. For Viva la Vida, the album as a whole hasn't grabbed me and I haven't given it enough listens to fully judge it, but that it hasn't grabbed me to make me want to listen to it more shows that my opinion is not all that high on it. I like every other song on it it. The others, are just OK. I take exception to making fun of Chris and Gwen for naming his children unique names by implying that no one else names their children such names is classless. It's not like he named his daughter a vulgar name, such as Bitchy or his son an inanimate object, such as Rock or Grass. Yes, "Apple" is an inanimate object, but it's something sweet, nutritious, and has a pleasant sound. As for Moses? There's nothing wrong with that. She has a bit of growing up to do still, just like I do but have done as well.
  4. No, not yet. I've been to plenty of shows by myself though. Sigur Ros, The Flaming Lips (back to back nights) Collective Soul, John Butler Trio. I did plan on going to see Coldplay by myself in Cleveland on their last winter tour in the U.S., but for whatever reason, my mom didn't want me to go. If I did go to a Coldplay show by myself, it would be this tour. I hope you are not worried--there's nothing to worry about. You are all there, I presume, because you have a common interest. So, that is at least one thing to talk about.
  5. I thought I'd pass this along. As of now, there is an individual ticket available on the floor TM-Section D, Row eight. I still just can't see myself paying quite this much for tickets but I'll see. There are a lot of great bands out there that aren't quite as well known and hence tickets aren't sky high.
  6. One more thing. I don't know if this has been done before, and there may be a few music gurus who could easily identify them, but I thought why not, in order, try to identify, while watching the video, all of the musicians in the video for "Window in the Skies". There are quite a few. To keep things continuous, we may name repeats, as there are cases where the same musician appears twice. Window in the Skies-http://youtube.com/watch?v=ji43CHtuj58 I'll start if off and keep a tab here. I think I can recognize the first. My mom was a fan of his back in her college days. Why not post a video, as well, of the artist? 1.) Frank Zappa-0:14 http://youtube.com/watch?v=w8y0JLPQl94 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) 10.) 11.) 12.) 13.) 14.) 15.) 16.) 17.) 18.) 19.) 20.)
  7. Are they working on a new album? Their last album came out in the Fall of '04, that single came out in late '06. What's going on?
  8. I am ashamed that I find your comment funny enough to laugh out loud. Maybe I just don't have enough laughs but in my life right now as well as like Mike Myers, I like stupid and intelligent humor, but still, that was a stupid funny joke, but still creative enough to get a thumbs up.
  9. So, has anyone turned up any of the details as to why the tour was pushed back? They are not really disclosing a lot of information other than saying there are issues with production. OK, what exactly? There is a shortage of laser technicians, confetti and balloons? They are waiting for the tiger to be tamed (and trained) as they are implementing tigers into their shows now? I'm personally still of the opinion that they weren't moving enough tickets fast enough, mainly because when I've looked online when the tour was still on the old schedule, there were plenty of floor tickets in the middle rows that remained. It isn't far fetched to think they would so something like this. Corporations do what is in their best interest. Perhaps there WAS a mild issue with production, but could have been rectified, but they went ahead with this plan anyways, just to be fair, but that's about as far as I can believe with the information they have provided. Tickets aren't THAT widely available. Most of the best seats are either taken or, to a much lesser extent, unreleased (as venues will release tickets intermittently between release and show time), but there are still lots of seats left. However, remember this: the fact that a majority of the seats are sold at the same price (and at a very high price at $99 plus the whopping Ticket Prices Floor Seating US $97.50 Club Seating (100 or Lower Level) US $77.50 - US $97.50 Loge Seating (200 or Upper Level) US $49.50 - US $77.50 I haven't really seen any other comments that reflect what I think, but I'm sure there are some that think so. Lastly, don't think I am bitter, but it is hard for me not to believe that is the reason. However, the start of the tour was not pushed THAT far back, and I think I am forgetting that, because the show in my market was pushed back three months, and that dates were added since the original tour dates were released, that I am perceiving this pushback as being much greater than it is in actuality.
  10. Hey Marisa, I'm just curious and I hope I'm not being too nosy, but how are things going? Still attending school? I think I'm going to settle into a liberal arts degree of Urban Studies--not sure about grad school yet though, but that's down the road. Also, could someone please give me some insight as to why they pushed the tour back or give me your opinion as to why. I gave mine in this thread and while I still like Coldplay, the price of tickets are a bit steep. I know a sentiment that was expressed by quite a few people in one thread upon release of ticket info was that they like Coldplay, but GEEZ--these tickets are a bit pricey. EDIT: I see it says here it was pushed back because Chris twisted his knee, but then again Chris himself conflicts that, so something is up here. http://www.coldplaying.com/forum/showthread.php?t=46986
  11. Well, it is totally understandable that you are concerned. You have high expectations for the band, and I can say myself, that I am mildly disappointed in their new album, but it is growing on me. There are some songs that I like quite a bit. As for your comment, you are probably still young. I was quite naive and made a rather stupid comment on here about that subject and homosexuality. I think using the term "gay", in a derogatory fashion, is a bit ingrained in me, although I think I use it much less, but would not use it in that way on a forum.
  12. Not a bad idea. It's ultimately going to be a song from one of the first two albums though. I'm just curious, and although they may be B-sides for a reason, what avenues would you suggest to listen to some b-sides? I wouldn't mind hearing some of their earlier work that wasn't released on any of their major albums. I have the "Speed of Sound" single that has some B-sides and also have the "Brothers and Sisters" short little album. Likely, it won't matter as far as B-sides are considered, but I'd just like to hear some more than what I've heard. I also can't see myself putting more than three songs from the last album on the list--if any but perhaps they'll grow on me more.
  13. I remember first being exposed to Rage back when my brother was in junior H.S. and he's 26 now. It was around the time he was set to go on the school's trip to Washington D.C in the Spring of '96. It's somewhat ironic, because by mainstream standards, Rage is very politically outspoken music. I remember that classic album cover from "Evil Empire", and often hearing the song "Bulls on Parade" at the time on a local alternative rock station here in Detroit. Of course, being a kid back then, I didn't really quite understand the motivations and meanings behind their songs. I would change the lyrics, playfully in "Bulls on Parade", from "with a pocket full of shells" to "with a pocket full of seashells". In fact, the lead singer, Zack de la Rocha, saw the success of their music and the action it sparked as being positively correlated. If the music didn't spark any action, it was a failure in his eyes. I remember when they disbanded and my brother told me de la Rocha basically said they weren't going anywhere--I think what he really meant is that it wasn't sparking significant action. I do sort of agree about their music sounding the same, but I think it's more of a matter of preference. I personally think Coldplay has pairs of songs within albums that sound a bit the same, within albums, namely their last two. I love the energy that de la Rocha puts into his music and I feel the passion, and also the rage. Here are a few songs I'm fond of: Testify- "Sleep Now in the Fire"- http://youtube.com/watch?v=Jz8wU9DdbqU Great video, directed by Michael Moore, who makes a few brief cameo appearances. "Renegades of Funk"- "Bulls on Parade"- http://youtube.com/watch?v=-58-36lSqG4
  14. I couldn't resist bringing up what Bill O'Reilly called Chris Martin on his "Patriot and Pinhead" segment on his show "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News. Part of me said "Don't even bother posting anything about this." I do not feel hatred really towards anyone, at least not permanently. I may hold feelings of great dislike, and in the heat of things, feel hatred, and Bill O'Reilly is no exception, but he is very close to hatred on the spectrum of liking in the slew of people I have opinions of. Well, in case you can't tell by my attitude, he called Chris a pinhead and not a patriot. I didn't watch it, but my brother (who for reasons not totally known to me, watches Fox News) told me about it. Bill said that he's made inquiries about having Chris on the show (and he's declined) to ask Chris, most likely, about the comments he made in a recent Rolling Stone interview (I read the preview on rollingstone.com), the interviewer asked Chris about a lyrical reference and if the "fox becomes a god" and a "carnival of idiots" is a reference to Fox News. It is and it is not a positive reference. Here is an excerpt from the preview of the interview on Rolling Stone. Rolling Stone: On the first single, "Violet Hill," you sing about a fox becoming a god and a "carnival of idiots on show." Was the song inspired by Fox News? Chris: No one's got that before, no one in the band, no one. The first line in that song is the first line of any song we ever wrote. Years ago, when Guy [berryman, bassist] heard that first line and that first little melody — "It was a long and dark December" — he said, "OK, I'll join the band." But we just didn't have the other 49 lines until last year. And then one day I was watching Bill O'Reilly, and I was like, "I know how to finish that song." My best friend, Tim, he's a musician in a band called the High Wire, but he also has to work in a bar. He was having trouble with his boss, and it made me think that so many people spend their lives being told what to do by people that they just don't like. So it was that idea, and watching Bill O'Reilly, and all these words just came out. http://www.rollingstone.com/news/coverstory/21185368/page
  15. The reason for the show being pushed back is quite vague. "We're very sorry, but unfortunately Coldplay have had to move the dates of some of the previously-announced US shows. The band have experienced some production delays which mean that the show simply won't be ready for June 29. It's very frustrating but they promise you a show worthy of your patience and understanding when they start in mid-July. All tickets remain valid, but refunds will be available from the point of purchase if you're unable to make it to the new date. Click here to view the full revised routing." Personally, if you ask me, they just weren't moving enough tickets. There seems to be quite a few tickets that remain to be sold. I could be wrong though. I admit, now that it was pushed back, I am more likely to go, seeing that it was pushed back three months.
