So I didn't post this earlier because of school and all, but alkdjflkajsdlgjasdg. Last Tuesday (Has it really been that long already? Geez February is running away from me) I went to a They Might Be Giants concert in Ybor City. If you know me at all (Or read my LJ profile xD) you'd know that They Might Be Giants is my favorite band ever.
To top that, Johnathan Coulton opened for them, which was also a dream come true because Portal is one of my favorite games ever (In case anybody doesn't know, Johnathan Coulton wrote the ending songs for both Portal games). It was really great to see his original songs in concert, since I don't listen to them very often. One of the last songs he played actually was Still Alive, and I totally went crazy screaming for it haha.
Then he was done and I held my breath waiting for TMBG to come out and...
I just can't describe the feeling when they walked on stage. These people who I've been faithfully listening to for 13 years were actually right in front of me. So many emotions flooded over me when the Johns started talking it's so hard to explain my joy and nostalgia and sheer amazement over the situation. <3 Even after so long in the music career, they still look like themselves, still sound like themselves, and can still play songs from the first album of theirs I heard with the same intensity and joy I remember from the CD I own.
When they started playing, they did a couple songs from their new "Join Us" album and transitioned to songs from the first album of theirs I heard, "Lincoln". Every time they did one of their old songs, they changed the beginning to keep us guessing and it was just hilarious and tear-inducing and ahhh. It's almost a week after the concert and I still can't articulate. xD;;
One thing I can say is this: They Might Be Giants has never let me down with their music, and they continue to make me fall in love with them every time I see a YouTube video of their music videos and random updates. Going to their concert was immensely magical and I will never forget the feeling of seeing them in person.
Also Happy Valentine's Day to those of you who celebrate it! C:
So I'm super excited about the Dragon Selection scans. I'll probably buy me a Japanese pokemon card single for the first time in a long while because that holo Haxorus needs to be at my house as soon as possible oh gosh. <333
Anyway, it's been a while since I last updated my journal, Christmas break keeping me away from home and all.
But anywho! I had a nice holiday and I got some cool stuff too! Namely a red 3DS with games and some pokemon things. c:
The 3DS is really cool! So far I have Skylanders, Super Mario 3D Land, and Pokemon Rumble Blast for it and I love them so much. <3 Mario is so extensive it's great! And Rumble Blast is perfect for me because I always thought Rumble would make a good DS game.
Skylanders surprised me a lot, since I wasn't really expecting it to be much. I wanted it because I've been a fan of the Spyro series for a very long time, and I'll be with him untill the end, regardless of how he looks. Anywho, I felt that it may be a pretty bad game, since it's aimed at kids and would be super easy and blah. It's actually quite good! At least the little bit I've played. I haven't had much time haha. The music is great and the worlds are very creative <3
Not much else to say I guess? Seeing my favorite author in person next weekend! So excited eeee
I figured I'd start my journal off with something self- centered, such as describing myself in somewhat annoying detail.
Lists are fun. Let's do those. These lists aren't in any particular order, by the way. I suck at ordering words.
Things I like:
The smell of new Pokemon cards
The Lion King
Your Pants (Which are down D: )
Mystery Guitar Man
Mountain Dew White Out
Chocolate ice cream
... And plenty of other things I can't think of right now
Things I dislike:
People who are idiots
People who are mean to others
... And probably other things
I also use the smilies C: :D xD >.> |D :C D: and xD;; in exceeding amounts. Just so you know.
WHEE LIVEJOURNAL :D
