music: Placebo - Twenty Years (Live in Vienna)

Sweetie/Karen just completely summed up my thoughts on the latest Muse video over on ETS:

"It's sort of cute and I like the animated bits, but I think the video could maybe have been better if the band weren't in it. I can see what they were going for, but really, Matt couldn't lip sync to save his life! It's a nice concept with the Willy Wonka-esque boat ride and stuff, I just don't think it was very well executed. "

In addition, I  just cancelled my preorder for the Japanese import of  Year Zero. According to the NIN Hotline, there will no longer be a bonus track AND it's been delayed over there. I'll just pick it up on the 13th in HMV here.

Resolutions... in a way

Dec. 28th, 2006 | 10:07 pm

 - I WILL get round to reading Lord of the Rings. It's been sitting there in a box since 2004.
- Catch up on my gaming - especially Pokemon. That's right, I still play Pokemon, I'm a dork, yadda yadda yadda.
- Probably cut back on the drinking.

I'll probably do the first one but fuck the last one.

Oh yeah, happy xmas/new year/whatever.

Placebo: London and Manchester [Public]

Dec. 12th, 2006 | 12:01 pm

THIS IS THE PUBLIC, CUT-DOWN VERSION OF A FRIENDS-ONLY POST WHICH HAS... CERTAIN INFO IN IT. PLEASE DON'T BUG ME FOR INFO ABOUT WHAT'S MISSING.

London:
Got to Wembley at 11pm the night before, armed with painkillers and a bottle of vodka. Got pissed during the night to keep myself warm/entertained. People started arriving at around 5am and Jeff got there at about 11. The day passed quick enough. About an hour before the show I tried my whole "I'm disabled but can do the barrier, can I get in one minute early?" routine. Got told after 10 minutes that I wouldn't be let into standing due to health and safety restrictions. Understandably, I was pissed off/upset. When the doors opened I ran down anyway and made the barrier. At which point someone came and removed me. But I got put in a seat right above the stage. Anyway, I liked Howling Bells a bit  but hated Archie Bronson - I actually got out and walked around the concourse during them. Well, it was half because of them and half because I was trying to find a way to have a cigarette.

Placebo:
 - Stef was amazing that night. It's great when he's really animated on stage.
 - That guy that jumped the stage ran down past me. Actually jumped over BESIDE me. I just noticed this blur and was like "wtf?!" and then five seconds later he was on stage. It took seven security guys to get him off and... grr I was so angry at him.
 - I Know/Soulmates/Bionic/WYIN were AMAZING.
 - The new version of EYEM was fab.
 - BIWY made me cry for some reason.

Manchester:
Got to the venue just after 7, even though I was broke and almost couldn't afford the coach due to evil cash machines, and met Shreena. I had vodka hidden on me so I got pissed and don't remember a lot. It was as good as the other night, except without the technical difficulties. The birthday speech had me in hysterics.

Yeah. It was great. I'm off to die now because I need sleep.
