  1. The Offspring-Pretty Fly For a White Guy
  2. I watch the horror movie Mirrors today at the cinema. Was a really good film. Gory in places but it had an incredible storyline. Enough jumps to keep you going aswell. Great film. A good watch for any horror fan
  3. JV Jones to bring out the next two books so I can know what's gonna happen to Raif! That and to read Brisinger. And the rest of the Battleaxe series, because I need a bit of reality shifting.
  4. About a week ago at college my friend Adam came up to me and asked me to learn a new song on guitar because he wanted to jam it. I said okay and proceeded to listen to and learn the song. The song was called Life Is Beautiful and was one of the most heartfelt songs I had heard in a while. I asked Adam about it and he said it was the third song off an album named the Heroin Diaries. I listened to a few of the tracks on youtube and dug out an old album from my room that he had given to me that I hadn't listened to yet. It turned out to be The Heroin Diaries. That night was the craziest night of my life. The music was honest and intense, full of pain and unrealised demons and seeping with dregs of an almost forgotten past. Soon enough Adam passed me the book which the album was based on. The Autobiography of Nikki Sixx. Which turned out to be his diary from a year when his band Motley Crue were at the top and he was face down at the bottom. The intro is a chillin way to start a year. It began on Christmas Day 1986. He begins: Merry Christmas. Well that's what people say at christmas isn't it? But normally they have someone to say it to. They have friends and family and they haven't been crouched underneath a christmas tree with a needle in their arm like some insane person in a mansion in Van Nuys. The entire book has been a heavy impact on my life on how someone can have everything yet have nothing at exactly the same time. How they can have everyone and have no one, be having fun and laughing while their soul is slowly being torn out of their bodies. It's an incredible read and an incredible listen. If anyone gets the chance I suggest you go onto their website and read the beginning few chapters of the book. Or go on Youtube and listen to the tracks written from the diary. Just thought it needed a mention. Dani
  5. I haven't actually brought an album for a while. I think the last one I brought was Turisas-battle Metal. An album filled with folk instruments and riffs mixed with metal music and finnish, swedish and english lyrics. I must say all the albums I get hold of now i have a tendancy to "borrow" them from my mate haha!

    Musicals

    I love musicals. Sadly I have yet to see one on stage fully but I hope I will sometime in the near future. Thanks to my nan I'm a big fan of Singing in the Rain, Showboat, Seven Brides for Seven brothers (still makes me laugh) and other from that time, you know, back in the time when people could successfully make a masterpiece in musical movie theatre. As for recent ones Chicago, moulin rouge and Sweeny Todd have definitely become three of my favorites. Chicago is just funny and the songs are fantastic, though I am starting to loathe Renee Zel-whatever. I am sorry but I can hardly stand her in that movie. Catherine Zeta Jones upstages her every time. Moulin Rouge I thought was just fantastic, the songs, the choreography, the artwork...excellent! Sweeny Todd just really found a place in my top 5. Being a long fan of both Tim Burton and the story of Sweeny Todd I was so excited at the concept of them joining together (with two of my favourite actors Johnney Depp and Helena Carter). The movie was already a masterpiece before it came onto the screen and it didn't dissapoint. As for Cliff Richard's heathcliff, I have to say I will always love it just for my memories sake. My nan and I would always watch it when I was little, I can still remember the songs! I thought it was great and keep on asking my nan to put it on again. I miss it heehee. But yes musicals are fantastic. But I agree, Annie should definatley be shot.
  7. Damn! haha! I've got it stuck in my head too now! (I blame Armageddon )
  8. I watched the movie without even realising it was a book (though I am sure my Dad mentioned it once)and I found it very interesting, true the effects for the infected wasn't the best I'd ever seen but still an interesting story. After reading this thread I think I shall look for the book and pray that I don't find the movie adaptation version. Been a while since I read a good vampire book (the last being Anne Rice-Vittorio the Vampire).
  9. I honestly don't think I have yet to read the scariest book. Some have left me in some discomfort, or played on my mind in the night, but they have never kept me up. The most uncomfortable one would have had to have been The Rats by James H. It freaked me out and worse, my big sister came up to me a few weeks ago claiming she'd had a dream about giant black rats with long tails. (this was quite strange since she had never ever read the books) For a film I would have to agree with The Ring. After watching that movie I cannot look at a disembodied ghost in anything. The way they move just sends chills through me and I immediately feel sick. But I have always been that way. I can watch any horror movie, but if it involves children and ghosts it makes me feel ill (though I still watch them...I'm quite strange like that). Ghosts scare me more because I believe that they exist, so watching movies of ghosts and demons who possess and harm others really freaks m e out. Japanese horror would have to be the best I have ever seen. Though I must admit, still waiting for the book.
  10. I must declare it has been a good while since I picked up a book to read, though I have at this moment been flicking through a book to learn the Finnish language. College just tends to get in the way a lot.
  11. I made my way through the start of the House weekend today on hallmark channel. House has to be the cream of the hospital/drama crop. It has the right science, the right witty remarks and the sheer genius that is the character House, it sure makes for a fantastic watch. I love the program and am glad they've started showing it again.
  12. My song of the Year would have to be either Halo or Aesthetics of Hate by teh band Machine Head. Halo would be a candidate because it is the most epic song I have heard in the longest time. It begins quiet but explodes into heavy guitars before sliding into a heart pumping prechorus.The chorus itself is incredible, focusing on harmonies which blend perfectly with the singers voice as he cries out Halo! The solo are heart-felt and when the song breaks down for the crescendo of the song i just feel goosebumps, the when it hits they don't go fast they hit the crescendo slow before returning back to the original riff. The song as a whole is a complete and utter masterpiece of modern metal music and is a must listen for any music fan, even those who do not count Heavy music as their preference. Aesthetics of Hate on the other hand is a song I would choose simply because of personal reasons. Simply because three years ago a guitarist named Dimebag Darrell was shot dead onstage and it affected an entire nation of fans and people who listened to Metal music. Someone wrote an article soon after his death proclaiming that Dimebag was a stupid, rediculous person and that those who mourned him were 'humerous'. I myself read the article and this song managed to encompass all the hatred that I felt towards it. Well those are my candidates for 2007, I'm sure more will come to mind later, but those two are the ones that come to mind.
  13. Bad Obsession-Guns N Roses Off the Use Your Illusion 1 album Damn to think i forgot how incredible these guys are!
  14. Another Children of Bodom classic heehee (i seem to be making a night of it ) Needled 24/7 this time. Fantastic harmonised solos in total Bodom style Ahh fantastic..makes me sing along everytime
  15. Apparently yeah, they seem to only have Past and Present tense it's kinda strange trying to figure out heehee at the moment I onyl know a few basic things..hopefully i'll manage to get better. Maybe
