favourite performance of all time

Guys I went to the Not Today Satan tour last night in London. In the Q&A someone asked Bianca “what is your favourite Snatch Game performance of all time”? And she replied: “Across all seasons? I may be a little biased, but it would have to be my favourite person, Adore Delano. She said she was gonna do Anna Nicole and I was like “ok, bitch” not knowing how that was gonna work. We spent the whole day cackling. DeLa’s was great but Adore was fucking genius. I got to sit next to her and we just had the most fun day up in our little corner. She’s amazing.” AGH

top 5 Phantom videos!

Oh my God this is the best question ever thank you so much. Prepare for an essay on German poto lmao

1. Essen, 2005: Anne Görner, Nikolaj Alexander Brucker, Thomas Borchert. The first bootleg I ever watched and still my absolute favourite, 2 years later. The quality of the filming is so good; the video is steady, the colours are gorgeous, no obstructions, good close-ups, everything you could wish for from a video over 10 years old. Anne is my favourite Christine of all times. Thomas is one of my favourite performers ever, so for the first time I don’t feel like skipping the phantom scenes. Nikolaj is a Leroux!Raoul if I ever seen one. The rooftop scene is one of the best ones I’ve watched. The final lair is my favourite that I have ever watched. Everything about this video is so on point and I love it so very much. It’s my go to video whenever I’m in a poto mood and the one I’ll never want to let go of.

2. Hamburg, 2014: Lauri Brons, Nicky Wuchinger, David Arnsperger. The quality of this video is unreal, obviously cast wise, but filming wise as well. The close-ups are to die for. Lauri is the most interesting Christine I’ve seen, Rachel is a gem, Nicky is The Fave ™. The existence of this video is a blessing to us all. 

3. Hamburg, 2014: Valerie Link, Nicky Wuchinger, David Arnsperger. The filming is kinda wonky but the cast is A++++. Missing Rachel as Carlotta, but Valerie and Nicky are my babies, David is one of the few phantoms I enjoy and the managers are on point. Pretty much every scene is a highlight. That Think of Me. That Final Lair with Valerie taking no shit from the phantom. That Wishing. That Rooftop with the happiest Raoul. That Masquerade, with the bold, saturated colours and the r/c kiss. Love love love. 

4. Hamburg, 2015: Valerie Link, Nicky Wuchinger, Rob Pitcher. Really well shot video of my faves, but that’s not the reason it’s on this list. I have an emotional attachment to this video. I got it as a gift during the peak of my Nicky obsession, a few days before I was to go on holiday to Rome. I watched the Rooftop scene as I usually do, loved every second of it, decided I cannot wait a week to watch the full video, and took my laptop with me to Rome. I watched it while I was there and I will forever be reminded of that really cool trip when I watch it now, so it’s forever one of my faves. 

5. Antwerp, 2000: Inneke van Klinken, Michael Shawn Lewis, Hans Peter Janssens. A very interesting production that sealed my love for Michael’s Raoul. Despite the colour bleeding and questionable contours, it has really cool close-ups and follows the action pretty well. It’s a very good production with a very good cast and I’m so happy it exists. 

Idk if you expected this huge ass answer, but I couldn’t miss the chance of talking about my favourite bootlegs ever haha.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Birmingham, 11th Dec ‘16

If I had a bucket list, seeing Red Hot Chili Peppers live would definitely be one of the points in it. However, not even in my wildest dreams did I believe that I would get to see the band in concert from the second row and would hear them perform two of my all-time favourite songs.

After numerous unfortunate situations before the concert, I felt like I wasn’t supposed to be at the arena on 11th Dec but at the same time, I couldn’t not be there. And there was not a place I would rather had been.

A bombastic intro consisting of a short jam and the funky Can’t Stop kicked off the show before the band got into the hit Dani California, which led to the crowd going completely crazy. 

That’s when the madness started - everyone wants to be at the front and different people try different ways to get there. Some, like me, go extremely early and secure their place at the barrier. Others just push to the front without thinking about their safety or the safety of the people in front of them, which can be very stressful and painful for everyone involved. I’ve been to other big shows but I’ve never been pushed to such a degree, I’ve never felt like I was in danger but there I was 2 songs into the concert wondering if I would get out of there in one piece.

Thankfully, Scar Tissue followed and the crowd was calmed by the slow tempo of the song - more energy was put into singing than pushing, which allowed me to enjoy one of my favourite RHCP songs to the full. As great the original is, Josh Klinghoffer certainly doesn’t do any harm to the song (or any other song) with his work on guitar. The reason why I mention this is the hate this guy seems to get from fans… for not being John Frusciante, which in my opinion is absolutely ridiculous. He’ll never be Frusciante but this doesn’t mean that he is not a great guitarist and that he doesn’t deserve to be in the band.

Dark Necessities, the lead single of The Getaway, brought us back to the previously mentioned craziness but this time I tried to get lost in the music and forget about my physical discomfort. And with the Chili Peppers it’s never hard to put yourself in a state where only you and the music exist. I just moved with the crowd, leaning against the guy in front of me to keep my balance. It was a hot and sweaty but there isn’t another hot and sweaty situation I would trade it for.

The following two songs, Nobody Weird Like Me and Hard to Concentrate, which are not among my favourites, gave me some time to admire the absolutely astonishing light show. Having the lights so low made the arena feel like an intimate venue, at least for the people at the front. You could almost forget that the Chilis have been around for more than 30 years now and are not just an up and coming band playing in front of their few fans. Thoroughly mind-blowing.

Half-way through the main set it was time for some more new material - Parallel Universe separated two of the singles from The Getaway, Go Robot and Sick Love, both of which were welcomed warmly despite of their unusual sound.

The reason I don’t really speak about the band’s performance is because they were simply amazing. There were a couple of slips, which only added to the charm of the whole experience rather than lower the quality in my opinion, there were jokes and mentions of Birmingham of course. Anthony Kidies had some of his lyrics handwritten and changed them from song to song in front of him, Chad Smith was adorable trying to fool the fans while throwing sticks in the crowd and another sweet moment was Josh Klinghoffer’s surprised and smiling face when someone shouted his name in the interval between two songs.

Whether it was because I was too excited or too dehydrated, I am missing some memories from that point of the show but I cannot forget my smile growing, the crowd roaring as Josh Klinghoffer played the opening chords of Under the Bridge. Every band has one of these songs that simply get every single person in the crowd singing and give them a sense of belonging, a sense of purpose. Or is it just me? If there is such thing, Under the Bridge is that song for RHCP. The loveliest atmosphere spread around the venue and I was just looking at Anthony Kiedis singing and Flea jumping around, not believing that all of this was actually occurring. 

The foursome closed the main set with the fan-favourite By the Way, before coming back for a bit of an unexpected performance of Dreams of a Samurai, which I was excited to hear instead of Goodbye Angles, which is usually part of the encore. The musicians spread their wings on this epic and I hope the rest of the crowd appreciate this moment as much as I did. As it has been for years, the last song was Give It Away, which was made to be played live and is bound to leave a long lasting memory in the mind of every fan at the venue. The show came a full circle with a short jam from Chad Smith, Flea and Josh Klinghoffer, after which the drummer delivered a short speech about all the influential musicians coming from Birmingham and the area, making all the locals feel proud. He left the stage and the lights were turned on, this magical night was over.

some thoughts on queen + al

i really don’t get why some people give adam lambert so much shit about touring and performing with queen. 

“but he’s not freddie mercury!” well, duh, nobody else except freddie himself is freddie mercury. adam lambert himself has said that that’s the reason why the collaboration is titled “queen + adam lambert”, because queen was a band which included freddie as their lead singer, and queen still exists with roger and brian, but adam doesn’t mean to replace freddie in any way. at their concert in tallinn he said that he’s a huge queen fan himself and he’s really thankful for the chance of performing with them, well, because it’s a chance of a lifetime. and don’t forget that brian and roger adore him just as much. 

and don’t even get me started on the people who say that adam “sucks” and “can’t sing”. may i remind you that you’re not going to hear an exact copy of freddie’s voice live again? and that is not the point of queen’s new collab whatsoever, they have said that it’s fun for them to play their legendary songs on world stages again with such a remarkable frontman. and you can’t really say that adam lambert “can’t sing”, when he’s one of the most appreciated voices in today’s music scene and has an amazing solo career on his own.

you may not like adam lambert as the new frontman of queen, but that doesn’t mean you have to be bitter and insult a great artist doing his job and enjoying it.; in my opinion it’s very cool to hear lots of my all-time favourite queen songs performed by such talented people, hearing and seeing them play live really was an experience of a lifetime for me too.

“So I’m standing there filling up like I’ve done a thousand times before, and I hear a chunk. You know, the pump’s nozzle. The– the metal thing. The thing you squeeze, right? I hear a chunk. So I suppose, in my naivete, I took to understand that gas is no longer coming out of the nozzle, so I pull out the hose to put it back and whoosh! You know, I am suddenly soaked in gasoline. I mean, on my arms and my legs and my– my groin. So now I am in a panic, and I race home, I run inside the house, and I’m stripping off my clothes as fast as I can. I jump in the shower. It’s not until after I get out of the shower that I realize my gas-covered clothes have been soaking in the living room rug this entire time. I mean, it’s– it’s– the whole thing is just so stupid. I could have rinsed off at the station. Halfway home, I’m starting to realize– wait a minute– there’s a water hose right there next to the air pump. You know, for tires. Anyway, so that was my day. How was yours?”

Could you IMAGINE.

Taiki’s solo album title is something like “Music to Synthesize Your Life Cycles Through The Malaise of Everyday Existence in an Existential World Without Conscious Thought or Deed Punctuated Only By a Brief Lucid Moment Where You Realize You Are the Thorn on the Rose and Yet It Would Remain Beautiful (Without You)”.

It contains four tracks with six hidden tracks that you can only access if you can break the secret code embedded musically in the songs and send in a self-addressed stamped envelope with the solution (SHOWING YOUR WORK) to Taiki’s fan club.

Which is Taiki, with a PO Box.

The music video is just Taiki giving you a lecture set to music about the proper conduct expected from the audience at their concert.

“Please come,” Taiki says. You can see in their eye that they don’t mean it.

Two people show up. Taiki asks them to leave because their clothes do not match the dress code that was EXPLICITLY spelled out with the manual that accompanied their ticket.

Taiki performs to an empty stadium.

It is their favourite concert of all time.
