Re: Pop/Rock thread

So, basically, 95% of what I'm listening to today is property of Queen Productions.

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Last week, but eh: Beforeigners . Synopsis (with as little spoilage as possible): People from the neolithic, the Viking age and the 19th century start appearing in Oslo. They have to live and work together, and there's a murder case to solve… Unfortunately, I had to sit through six episodes of Germa...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

So the German state-funded TV aired the Norwegian mini-series Fremvandrerne (Beforeigners) yesterday. I watched the first episode today (yay internet) and got hooked. Unfortunately, the dubbing isn't optional, but the Old Norse parts have been left untouched, save for subtitles. I'm going to watch t...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

I'm listening to Gluck's "Orfeo ed Euridice". I have a digital recording but recently acquired a recording on vinyl and I prefer listening to opera on vinyl [:D] I have some more or less classical music on vinyl. And, of course, two albums by Queen. To be fair, we were really desperate. [xD] I'm li...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

This , and this , and this , and this one . And those two . I've listened to each of those at least fifty times this year already and, if I were more musically inclined, I could've written entirely new songs based off of those. For tomorrow, It'll be this one with a re-enactment of this photo .

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

Germany (more realistically, Cologne) celebrates the beginning of a mysterious “fifth season” (i.e. carnival season) each 11th November at 11:11 (AM). The German version of “Rememberance Day”, Volkstrauertag (which bemournes every soul lost to war, be it “veteran” or “cvilian”) is observed on the pe...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Welp, too much Queen music.
I bought Kind of Magic (the digitally remastered version) on LP and Innuendo on CD last summer in Poland, and for Christmas I bought Made in Heaven (digitally remastered LP) and A Night at the Opera (CD, because it was cheaper).
