    Mag 12 2009, 13:05

    1. How did you get into 29? Soundgarden
    I was getting into Audioslave and decided to check out the member's previous pieces of work, which along with Soundgarden, also included Rage Against the Machine, and Chris Cornell's solo album.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Audioslave
    From their formation up until about 2007, I kept hearing bits of Cochise but I kept switching over whenever it came on (I still kick myself for doing that now, lol). When Audioslave were artist of the month on Xbox Live Marketplace, I downloaded the videos up, which were an interview about their last album, Revelations, and the music video for the first single, Original Fire, which is the first one I listened to in full.

    3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? Rage Against the Machine
    Probably "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" from Killing in the Name.

    4. What is your favorite album by 49? Deep Dish
    George Is On, as that's the only album I have from them, lol. I did have Junk Science on my computer for a little while, but only because I wanted to listen to The Future of the Future (Stay Gold). I might download it again and listen to the entire album for once.

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Well I "download" 99.9% of my music, so I don't really own any of them. :P I do have every single one of their albums in my collection though, along with the singles Soul to Squeeze, and Fortune Faded

    6. What is your favorite song by 50? Good Charlotte
    Dance Floor Anthem.

    I'm gonna have to follow the herd here and say In The Shadows.

    9. What is your favorite song by 5? Linkin Park
    Ooh, not sure. There isn't really a track from them that I love way more than the rest. I'm gonna go with Breaking the Habit.

    43. What is your favorite song by 24? Nightwish
    Bye Bye Beautiful.

    44. What is a good memory you have involving 46? Rush
    It's Rock Band-related. I remember not too long ago I finally FC'ed Tom Sawyer on the guitar. I think I've FC'ed the vocals as well. Another good "Tom Sawyer" Rock Band-related memory would be the first time I 5*'ed it on the drums, as I'm not that good at them. In fact, I haven't played them in months, because I'm using the GHWT kit, where the kick pedal is diabolical. :(

    Jon Bon Jovi.

  • My first ever concert

    Apr 15 2009, 23:41

    Wed 15 Apr – Deathstars, Marionette, The Defiled

    Got back from the concert about 10 minutes ago. It was bloody fantastic!!!

    First act on at about 20 past 8 was The Defiled. And man, they were good! They're sort of a cross between Bullet for My Valentine and All That Remains. Excellent warmup act, and some very good songs! Great half-hour gig!

    Then Marionette was up about half an hour later. They were similar to In Flames, but with more synths. They were good as well, but not as good as The Defiled. Their songs sounded a bit samey, but it was still a good half-hour.

    Then about 30-45 minutes later at about half past 10, Deathstars took the stage. Jesus, they were brilliant! Sounded almost exactly like the albums! I didn't think the lead singer could sing/scream the songs like on the album, but he re-created them almost perfectly! They had a few laughs with some of the fans as well. There was some loud girl up the front trying to get a kiss off the lead singer, and more! He turned her down, saying "You've got to f**k off before you f**k us!" So they played about 10 songs up until 11:15, then they went off, but all 200+ of us were screaming for an encore, and thankfully, they didn't let us down. They played another 2 songs, and then that was the end; although not before they took a couple of fans backstage with them!


    So, I got out at 11:30, and thankfully my dad picked me up, and he even dropped one of my friends off, which I'm really grateful for, because it was just starting to rain when my dad arrived, and also she was wearing 6-inch high platform shoes!


    So, basically, it was an amazing concert! And I managed to pick up a little souvenir: a guitar pick. I think it was from The Defiled's guitarist, because he was throwing quite a few into the crowd. I don't really care which band it came from though, as I'm glad to have it.


    EDIT: I uploaded the pics I took from the night onto my Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/mightyjordan/

  • The Lyrics Game!

    Nov 17 2007, 22:35

    I found this on someone's page, and thought it would be fun to give it a go. Here's the rules:

    Comment, listing the number, name, and artist of the song, to guess which ones they are.


    Step 1: Put your Media Player/iTunes or equivalent on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
    Step 3: Bold the song when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!


    There's the rules, but I'm gonna put the first 4 lines instead, so it's easier to guess, as some of them are almost impossible to guess. Now, get guessing these:

    1.It might not be the right time, I might not be the right one, But there's something about us I want to say, Cause there's something between us anyway.

    2.She nursed him there, over a night, I wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay What to say...what to say, But soon she was down, soon he was low.

    3.Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road, Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go, So make the best of this test, and don't ask why, It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

    4.It's alright, There comes a time, Got no patience to search, For peace of mind.

    5.Ladies and gentlemen please, Would you bring your attention to me, For a feast for your eyes to see, An explosion of catastrophe.

    6.All the tension in the world today, All the little girls fillin' up the world today, When the good comes to bad the bad comes to good, But I'm a live my life like I should (like I should).

    7.I never knew perfection til, I heard you speak, and now it kills me, Just to hear you say the simple things, Now waking up is hard to do.

    8.You can't kill the metal, The metal will live on, Punk rock tried to kill the metal, But they failed as they were smite to the ground!

    9.A common woman, Lives by The Bible, Wed-locked a prison, Of antiquation.

    10.Wake up (wake up), Grab a brush and put a little makeup, Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup (Hide the scars to fade away the), Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?, Here you go create another fable.

    11.Sunday morning rain is falling, Steal some covers share some skin, Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable, You twist to fit the mold that I am in.

    12.Turn on tha radio, nah fuck it turn it off, Fear is your only god on the radio, Nah fuck it, turn it off, Turn it off, turn on tha radio, nah fuck it turn it off.

    13.Oh man, I can't believe that you did what they said you did, And to this day I've still gotta say that in my mind I question it, I wish; I knew, What you had meant before you went and left me wondering to just an echo of your voice, 'Listen...'.

    14.So can you feel your heartbeat racing?, Can you feel the tension rise?, Can you see the road you're walking?, Are these times too hard to recognize?

    15.Why deny, All the troubles when combined with the missing links, It don't feel like, Home now...

    16.I'm not a victim, Till I let you take me down, I'm not a target at the sites of your mercy, I never asked for anything.

    17.At the mirror you fix your hair and put your makeup on, You're insecure about what clothes to wear, I can't see nothing wrong

    18.I wake up in the morning, And I raise my weary head, I got an old coat for a pillow, And the earth was last night's bed.

    19.Son, she said, have I got a little story for you, What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a..., While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen, Your real daddy was dyin', sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked...

    20.The neon lights are shining on me again, I walk the lonely streets in search of a friend, I need a lady to help me to get through the night, through the night, If I could find one then everything would be alright.

    21.Why was I one of the chosen ones?, Until the fight I could not see, The magic and the strength of my power, It was beyond my wildest dreams.

    22.In the middle of a gun fight..., In the center of a restaurant..., They say, "Come with your arms raised high!", Well, they're never gonna get me.

    23.Heute treff ich einen Herrn, Der hat mich zum fressen gern, Weiche Teile und auch harte, Stehen auf der Speisekarte.

    24.The freeway is jammed and it's backed up for miles, The car is an oven and baking is wild, Nothing is ever the way it should be, What we deserve we just don't get you see.

    25.I stand here face to face, With someone that I used to know, He used to look at me and laugh, But now he claims.

    26.Well someone told me yesterday, That when you throw your love away, You act as if you don't care, You look as if you're going somewhere.

    27.Build a bridge to your mind, Takes me there everytime, Lay it all on the line, If there's a way.

    28.A ballad of dark queen echoes through night, As he flees the curse of gods, the pharaoh`s wrath, One thousand one nights unseen, The philosopher and the queen.

    29.Left on an eastbound train, gone first thing this morning, Why's what's best for you, always the worst thing for me, When am I gonna learn? Why? Cause I'm tired of hating, When will it be your turn? Why? Cause I'm tired of waiting.

    30.We should talk about the hard fucking no, The hard fucking?, Because I think it's pretty common complaint, Yeah the ladies don't really like the hard fucking.

    31.Fifty million years ago, You walked upon the planet so, Lord of all that you could see, Just a little bit like me.

    32.Seems like only yesterday, Life belong to runaways, Nothing here to see, no looking back, Every sound monotone.

    33.I am bottled, fizzy water and you are shaking me up, You are a fingernail running down the chalkboard I thought I left in third grade, Now my only consolation is that this could not last forever, Even though you're singing and thinking how well you've got it made.

    34.How many special people change, How many lives are living strange, Where were you when we were getting high?, Slowly walking down the hall.

    35.Hearing music from the deepest forest, Songs as a seduction of sirens, The elf-folk is calling me, Tapio, Bearking, Ruler of the forest.

    36.We're all living in Amerika, Amerika, ist wunderbar, We're all living in Amerika, Amerika, Amerika.

    37.I felt the earth on Monday. It moved beneath my feet, In the form of a morning paper. Laid out for me to see, Saw his face in a corner picture. I recognized the name, Could not stop staring at the. Face I'd never see again.

    38.I close my eyes, the lantern dies, The scent of awakening, wild honey and dew, Childhood games, woods and lakes, Streams of silver, toys of olden days.

    39.My mamma wants to know, Where I'm spending all my dough, Honey, all she does is nag, nag, nag, But I won't apologise.

    40.Well I know you don't know the reason, And it's cold, a sign of the season, 'Cause you're old, and battered and beaten, And we'll grow, til we hit the ceiling, yeah.

    41.What did you say to me?, I'm not a novelty, You're playing revelry, But no one's listening.

    42.If I'm unable to be whole inside, then fall unstable, Tell me your lies, Restore me to holy, Come on, live life.

    43.I know, I know the sun is hot, Mosquitos come suck your blood, Leave you there, All alone just skin and bone.

    44.Lately I've been, Livin' in my head, The rest of me is dead, I dying for truth.

    45.WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SEND THE POOR!, Barbarisms by Barbaras, With pointed heels, Victorious, victories kneel.

    46.The only place where you can dream, living here is not what it seems, Ship of white light in the sky, nobody there to reason why, Here I am I'm not really there, smiling faces ever so rare, A let's walk in deepest space, living here just isn't the place.

    47.I gotta tell you what I'm feelin' inside I could lie to myself, but it's true, There's no denying when I look in your eyes, girl I'm out of my head over you, I lived so long believin' all love is blind, But everything about you is tellin' me this time.

    48.I'd like to close my eyes and go numb, But there's a cold wind coming from, The top of the highest high-rise today, It's not a breeze cause' it blows hard.

    49.Maybe I don't really want to know, How your garden grows, I just want to fly, Lately did you ever feel the pain.

    50.In the morning I raise my head, And I'm thinkin' of days gone by, And the thing I want out of life is, I want you (I want you).

    Current favourite: Desecration Smile

    11: HIM

    First song: Buried Alive By Love
    Made me fall in love: Rip Out the Wings of a Butterfly

    I've gone off HIM because most of their songs are droll and basic. I was just swept in by a few of their good ones.


    12: Foo Fighters

    First song: Best of You
    Made me fall in love: Best of You
    Current favourite: Monkey Wrench

    19: The White Stripes

    First song: Seven Nation Army
    Made me fall in love: Seven Nation Army

    I was just another person swept into The White Stripes by their ultimate track Seven Nation Army. Practicly everything else was crap, to be honest. The only other good songs were The Hardest Button to Button, Blue Orchid, and The Denial Twist. I don't like their newest single, Icky Thump, either.


    20: Rammstein

    First song: Amerika
    Made me fall in love: Amerika
    Current favourite: Du Hast

    21: Franz Ferdinand

    First song: Take Me Out

    I've gone off these guys for the same reason as HIM. The majority of their songs are dull and boring.


    22: Audioslave

    First song: Original Fire
    Made me fall in love: Revelations
    Current favourite: Like a Stone

    23: Good Charlotte

    First song: Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

    First song: Enjoy the Silence
    Made me fall in love: Heaven's a Lie

    I just got less and less into Lacuna Coil when I started listening to the other tracks on their albums (in other words, ones that weren't singles).


    26: Incubus

    First song: Follow (1st Movement of the Odyssey)
    Made me fall in love: Anna-Molly
    Current favourite: Stellar

    27: Green Day

    Current favourite: Black Fire

    31: Faithless

    First song: Mass Destruction
    Made me fall in love: One Step Too Far

    Most of their songs were just not good, IMO.


    32: Depeche Mode

    First song: Personal Jesus
    Made me fall in love: Enjoy the Silence

    I only liked 2 of their songs; Personal Jesus, and Enjoy the Silence


    33: Korn

    First song: Freak on a Leash
    Made me fall in love: Twisted Transistor
    Current favourite: Alone I Break

    46: "Weird Al" Yankovic

  • 50 Artists I Should Try Out

    Lug 2 2007, 11:09

    I saw this on another journal, and thought I'd try it out myself:

    Take the 50 top artists in your musical profile, and create a cloud of the similar artists that are not in your top 50. The result is a collection of highly recommended artists for your personal profile. You can generate your own cloud (in BBCode) at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/recommend.php

    This is what it came up with:

    My recommendations are
    3 Doors Down 30 Seconds to Mars A Perfect Circle Adema Alien Ant Farm Bloodhound Gang Bush CKY Chevelle Cold Coldplay Counting Crows Creed Crossfade Deftones Evanescence Finger Eleven Fuel Godsmack Goo Goo Dolls Jet Jimmy Eat World Lifehouse Live Marilyn Manson Maroon 5 Matchbox Twenty Muse Oasis Papa Roach Placebo Puddle of Mudd R.E.M. Rage Against the Machine Seether Shinedown Smile Empty Soul Sugarcult Switchfoot TRUSTcompany Taproot The All-American Rejects The Calling The Killers The Smashing Pumpkins Third Eye Blind Three Days Grace Trapt U2 Weezer


    It's a bit fucked up, to be honest. I already listen to Papa Roach, Maroon 5 and RATM. I've gone off Evanescence, as Amy Lee's sold out. I tried to get into Weezer, but it didn't happen. I only liked Beverly Hills

    Welcome to Zunetown. Population: tens of thousands of Americans, a couple hundred Europeans, and me. That's right, I have a Zune!

    The 2nd best purchase I've made (the Xbox 360 is 1st). I got it for £160 (including shipping, which costed £30). There have been so many reviews about this already, so I won't bother with one. I'll just keep it short and sweet. The Zune has a message attached to it: Move over iPod! There's a new king in town.

    Good Points:

    *Excellent sound quality
    *Perfect video quality
    *Great battery life (14 hours for music, 4 hours for video)
    *Wireless sharing (shame there isn't any other Zunes in Plymouth yet)
    *30GB capacity (bloody cheap for £160)
    *Custom backgrounds
    *Easy to use software (just like WMP11)
    *Excellent high quality 3 inch wide screen
    *Can charge through anything that has a USB connection

    Bad Points:

    *No AC adaptor included (sold seperately)
    *No internet capabilities (yet)
    *No games (yet)

    Overall, the Zune is one of the best players available. Microsoft have done an excellent job considering this it their 1st ever attempt. Microsoft have already announced that games would be available for the Zune within 18 months. Very long wait, I know, but let's hope it will be worth it in the end. I'm hoping that Microsoft will included internet browsing in the future through a firmware update, like the PSP. I'm pretty glad that it didn't come with an AC adaptor, because that would have meant I'd have to buy a converter.

    Overall Score: 10/10

    Microsoft have created such a masterpiece on their 1st go, so I can't imagine what their future innovations will be like.

    Bring on the games and the internet, Microsoft!

    If you have a Zune as well, feel free to post your experience with it, and what you think of it.

  • I Love The Beta Cessions!

    Dic 31 2005, 21:02

    It's been a long wait but it's worth it. I've completed my Celldweller collection by getting The Beta Cessions from CDBaby.com. This is the best Celldweller album to date and it's an excellent value on CDBaby for 2 discs.

    $15 plus $7 international shipping is a great price over here. In the UK that came to just around £12.50. That's roughly how much I paid for the first album from them again.

    Over and over again I kept listening to "Goodbye" on Celldweller's Myspace page just waiting to get it. Today the wait ended. And my god was it worth it.

    I recommended The Beta Cessions to all industrial fans out there. Or if you want to get your 1st taste of Celldweller buy their debut album. That will kick start you into the frenzy and then you won't want to wait to get The Beta Cessions.
