  1. This song will be tough to listen to while they're on tour. I can't help but think of their own kids and how they might feel when their daddies are away.


    On a lighter note, I saw a YouTube comment on the video that made me smile.....


    Fix You (or insert your own choice here): "I'm the saddest Coldplay song ever"

    Daddy: "Hold my boat"

    Btw, how does one pronounce Arabesque? I keep saying Albuquerque in my head. :no_mouth:


    LOL It's pronounced "air-uh-besk". It's a position in ballet where both legs are straight, with one foot on the floor and the other foot/leg extended back and up in the air. Not sure if that has anything to do with the song tho....

  3. Also, it would be great to have a theater full of people as passionate as the people on this website because enthusiasm was lacking in my theater. I was the only one in a Coldplay shirt, and my friend and I were the only ones with xylobands and love buttons. Denver needs to step it up!

    Had a similar problem in Fort Wayne (Indiana). The theatre was full but very few people seemed pumped, and only my daughter, myself and maybe two other people were wearing any CP clothes. No one clapped at the end either but I heard some laughs at the funny parts. It was way too somber there!!


    Loved the movie though and so glad I went!!!!

    I had a lot of issues with YouTube as well. The first version i made had all album songs in it and they all got blocked for copyright infringement. I had no idea that would be a problem since I wasn't monetizing the video but it definitely was. Back to the drawing board with live recordings and a couple album songs that were allowed for use.


    I checked out your video too....great pics!! Everyone having so much fun! :party:

  5. Call me adventurous or over the top, but I created a video (short film?) of my still photos and video clips from the Chicago concert my 9-year-old daughter and I went to with her best friend in August. It's set to Coldplay live music, mostly actual audio clips from the Chicago show. You'll see the girls making rhinestone Flower of Life t-shirts to wear, traveling to Chicago by train, taking a rickshaw to Soldier Field, meeting up with @iamsue before the show, clips throughout the concert, and heading home the next day. My favorite part of this is the look of pure joy on the girls' faces during the concert, and isn't that what a Coldplay concert is all about? Please check it out! Hope you love it.

  6. @brobbins, you did a most amazing job on this!!!!!! I loved it and will save it!! I have had the program you used and have no idea how you did this!! I've got to finish editing my videos and will post a link here. Maybe I can do something like this. What font is it in? I loved it!!


    Thank you so much!!!! I started the whole thing out in PowerPoint because I already knew that software and I'd done other photo compilations in it before. But I ran into problems imbedding the video clips into the PPT slides without them being really jumpy or grainy depending on how much I dumbed them down to not fight with the video player. I also don't have a separate A/V manipulating software like Audacity to help trim the audio or video files. For instance my video clip for VLV had a couple seconds at the beginning where I started filming before my camera was above people's heads so all you see is sest backs at first. When I finally gave up on doing it in PPT and switched to Filmora I decided to take screen shots of the PPT slides and those became most of the film images. It was so much easier doing that than inserting every photo again. Also i couldn't find any filmora text boxes that workwd well for long sentences so the PPT screen shots solved that problem too. I think the font was called Bradley Hand.

  7. It took me a while, but I put together a little video (short film??) of mine and my daughter's pic's and videos from the concert. This started out as a PowerPoint presentation so I could share the pic's with my daughter's friend's parents in a cool way, and it grew into something much more involved. Props to my son and his friend for teaching me how to make videos in a software called Wondershare Filmora. It's kinda long (almost 20 minutes) but if you've got enough time and interest, please check it out!! @iamsue you're in it too!! ;) Hope you like it. Please share if you do. LOL


    EDIT: I had to fix something in the video and replace it on YouTube. Here's the updated URL:

  8. @brobbins Who knows? we might have passed each other! My cousin went with me to the concert & we saw the rickshaw drivers passing us. One even asked us if we wanted to ride but we didn't. How much was the rate? now I'm thinking I should have! Gotta try new things lol but anyways it was amazing hearing Coldplay blaring on the street. Yup, Coldplay fans descend upon the Windy City.

    Our rickshaw ride was $40 plus tip. I've heard that each driver quotes whatever price they want based on the number of people and distance..... and maybe how gullible the riders look too. :) I'm sure I could have tried negotiating that before the ride but didn't want to with the kids there and he was the only driver in the area so I just went with it. Here's a short video and some pics from the ride.

  9. It's ironic this hurricane is named Harvey.....an homage to Phil perhaps?


    But seriously, I'm so sorry you guys are having to go through this. I'm a veteran of the Chicago/Soldier Field shows including the one that ended early last year. It was my daughter's first concert ever. I hope the reschedule gets worked out well for at least most of you. Sounds like that ship has already sailed for some. You have my best wishes. :)
