    Thu 16 Aug – Pukkelpop

    Pukkelpop was awesome... not only just because there were some good bands coming (though there were in the end only 4 or 5 bands that were really good...), but just because of the fun we've had...

    this is how my pp looked like:

    Day one:

    -Peter Pan Speedrock
    -The Draft
    -The Fire
    -The Blackout
    -Fall Out Boy
    -Iggy And The Stooges
    -Kaiser Chiefs

    Day Two:

    -Cobra Starship
    -Funeral for a Friend
    -Brand New
    -The Smashing Pumpkins

    Day Three:

    -Heavy Heavy Low Low
    -Enter Shikari Twice!
    -Fear Before The March Of Flames
    -From Autumn To Ashes
    -Nine Inch Nails

    unfortunately I've missed some!

    -The Academy Is...
    -Mad Caddies

    Best Performance

    Definitely The Blackout, and From Autumn To Ashes and Enter Shikari


    Worst/Most Boring Performance

    that one isn't that hard either: Tool and Heavy Heavy Low Low

    Most Disappointing

    too bad to say but I really thought Fear Before The March Of Flames, Brand New and Funeral for a Friend would have been better.

    Most Shocking

    Heavy Heavy Low Low because they only played for like 10 minutes
    Nine Inch Nails because i thought they were going to be bad but in the end i did have a great time. WIIISSSSHHH rules!
    Enter Shikari => played twice: one performance instead of Lacuna Coil(because they were too late) and then their own performance later on the day. it was awesome!

    heyhey... I'm back with some obsessions of mine :-)

    Enter Shikari
    Dead Man In Reno
    Nevea Tears

    they've stayed quite the same i guess..
    although i recently discovered Darkest Hour and they aren't that bad :-)

    the songs are still there too!

    Enter Shikari - Anything Can Happen In The Next Half Hour
    Chiodos - The Words 'Best Friend' Become Redefined
    ayumi hamasaki - evolution
    Alexisonfire - No Transitory
    Vegastar - Maitre De Ma Vie

    and to end this thing i'd like to say to everyone that i too have some songs from which i'm ashamed to tell i like them :-) Good Charlotte's newest song isn't that bad...although it's only good when the singer shuts his mouth and we can only hear the music (That's for Keep Your Hands Of My Girl, The River is addictive) :-) hehe... oh well. forget that last one :-)

    Ian Watkins (Lostprophets) running around on stage and screaming because the spectators weren’t putting up their hands in the air as he wanted them too. He was like: ‘Put your hands up in the air’  but almost nobody did it… then, seconds afterwards he was like screaming: ‘Put your fucking hands in the air’. Everyone immediately put their hands in the air. I even remember my friend asked: ‘Is that an order?’ I couldn’t stop laughing when she did that. Ian himself looked pleased when he saw our hands but couldn’t stop screaming anymore: ‘Do you have to fucking scream before somebody listens?!?!’
    And one of the concerts of a local band on Friday the 13th…that day was hilarious…

    47)Song that best describes your feelings right now?

    I don’t really know… I listen to a lot of songs…

    48)Song that describes your life?

    Don’t really know… My life’s been too wicked and weird to be described by just one song.

    49)Do you know the names of all the band members that you listen to?

    Only those I listen too quite often…
    but all of them? That would be weird: I know too many bands…

    50)Does a musician’s physical attractiveness play a role in the music that you listen to?

    They must have a certain style cause if you go and see them live, and they don’t have a certain attractiveness then they won’t be nice to look at. So it’s not really about the physical attractiveness but rather about their commitment to their job and if you them enjoying themselves while performing…it gives them a certain attitude too.

    51)What famous musician do you want to marry?

    I’ll find my own musician thank you… he doesn’t need be famous, as long as I like him and he listens to good music 

    52)Favorite movie sound track?

    soundtrack? I don’t really listen to soundtracks…
    I do like the Final Fantasy music… but it isn’t a movie so I wouldn’t know…

    53)Any musician pet hates?

    What kind of question’s this?

    54)What do your parents listen to?

    mom = almost everything
    dad = things like Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park but unfortunately he also likes Spanish music like Belle Perez and Beth… (Beth’s dime isn’t that bad though but I hate Belle Perez’ music :-s)
    stepdad = Rammstein, Black Sabbath,… a lot of metal actually…

    55)What are you listening to right NOW?

    Vegastar – L’ombre de vos vies.

    56)Do you wear band T-shirts, hoodies, etc.?

    If I’d have band shirts, I’d wear them…
    I really need to buy some…

    57)What do you think of people who do?

    I like that they’re supporting those bands by buying their merch. Certainly when it’s just a local band, you help them become more popular while wearing their shirts and hoodies.

    58)What music sub-culture do you feel like you belong to?

    I don’t really care…but some people try to put me in the group of emokids…I do listen to the music…and I like their style… but I don’t consider myself to be emo.

    59)What song is stuck in your head right now?

    Thursday – Jet Black New Year… (It’s been in my head for over 2 weeks and I start to dislike it)

    60)Do you sing in the shower?

    Why not? But only if my parents aren’t at home 

    61)If so, what? If not, why not?

    Songs which are stuck in my head.

    62)Would you rather marry a musician or be one yourself?


    63)What is in your walkman/discman right now?

    Sry, my discman hasn’t been used for a few years…but Rise Against, I Am Ghost and Sugarcult are in my cdplayer.

    64)How important is your partners taste in music to you?

    Really important…If he’d listen to a totally different type of music then me, it would be very stupid cause I talk a lot about my music. But fortunately he listens to the same music as me. Even almost exactly the same…

    65)Hanson moves in next door to you, do you go introduce yourself, or do you arrange to beat them up?

    Mmmmmmbop….if I’d still have been a 12 year old girl I’d never believe they’d be living in my neighborhood, but for gods sake: I’m almost 19 and I don’t listen to Hanson’s kind of music…So why would I even care? The only good thing about them moving into my neighborhood would be the fact I could ask them to teach me how to play guitar.

    66)Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll, you dig?

    67)Do you cook to music?

    Music’s my life… if there’s no music around me, I’d be either sleeping or at school…(and even when I’m at school the music isn’t that far away from me…my mp3 player goes wherever I go)

    68)Do you sing in the toilet?

    Stupid Question…

    and i'm loving it...
    the forms are awesome and the story rules...
    i'm glad some weird japanese people have made the first game and made a second one too...

  • WOOOOOHOOOOOO Pukkelpop Rocks

    Ago 20 2006, 10:15

    Last day i've been to Pukkelpop... one of 'the' festivals to be when you send your summer vacation in belgium...
    and i have only a couple things to say...
    Lostprophets were amazing although they had better sung some of their older songs...
    i missed Wake Up Make A Move :-(
    but hey, i got what i asked for and the group ended their performance on main stage with the best song they ever had. Shinobi Vs Dragon Ninja :-)
    After that we went to see Panic! at the Disco. But This was something very dissapointing...They just can't perform live :-s it's a shame cause i really like their music...
    so because we really thought they sucked, we went to HIM which was a lot better although the singer didn't let go of his cigarettes and when he lost his first he waited with singing until he had a new one :-s he's an addict for sure.

    cya next time... Kaye
