Epica in Miskolc
« on: January 05, 2008, 03:35:41 pm »
I don't know how many of you guys have heard the news, but Epica was invited by the Miskolc Opera Festival this summer to have a similiar concert to Therion's classical. So it appears that it will be a tradition, we can already expect someone else to come in 2009 (Miskolc will be a regular visit for many of us as I see :D). For further infos see http://epica.nl

Of course, I'm gonna guide/translate for you guys again if you wish. :)

For those who don't know this awesome Dutch band, here are some youtube videos:

I know how to accomplish that... by singing My Winter Storm all the time! :wOOt:
You see Lasse, I cannot sing and rant at the same time, can you? :nana:

edit: and there is one more guarantee I won't rant about Nightwish, the New Year resolution I made! :P Jeez, how could I forget that one... :whistle:

And now I'll stop spamming here... this is an important topic... ;)

Speaking about Miskolc... ;D



The city centre... there is a graveyard behind the church on the hill in the forest... 100% gothic atmosphere... ^_^



The lake and the castle 15km west of the city. The pic is taken from a boat. I rented the boat and paddled for 1 hour. :)



The waterfall and some crazy guy wearing Nightwish Blind Guardian T-shirt whom I do NOT know... honest to God! :nana:



Szent Istvan cave - one of two limestone caves I visited... REAL caves... big, long. cold(:afaid:), dark(:ninja:) with a lot of limestone-adornments and fossils...



Narrow gauge forest railway connecting the new and the old castle...



Ruins of the old castle... the summer residence of Hungarian kings. :king: There is an exhibition about Hungarian history inside... digitalized also... you choose the language on a touch-sensitive screen and then the speakers speak the most interesting parts from Hungarian history! :thumbup:

Miskolc rulez! If somebody had told me I was to see such landscapes in Hungary prior to my visit to Miskolc I would have NOT believed him... :lol:

Those were my last year pics and impressions from Miskolc... :)

22nd time and still counting...
I Miskolc!

Exactly Lasse! :biggrin: You don't want to know what the voices in my head say about Anette! :ninja:

@MissSwan: I assure you that my imaginary parties are much more fun than that! ;) You've seen my posts and the way they look like... I'll just say you have seen NOTHING! :nana:
Now seriously, the only "parties with celebrities" I'm interested in, is to have a breakfast with Tarja... ^_^ But she charges that 300 euros! :-\ :ninja: Did you have a breakfast with Tarja? :fish:

posting in a forum - free
new camera - 50€
new computer - 200€
touristic travel to space - 1,000,000€
pissing off Tarja fan - PRICELESS
for everything else, there is Mastercard




@DD: would you please give me 300 euros from your Mastercard, so that I could have a breakfast with Tarja? :) PLEASE... :nana:


edit:
@MissSwan: and a breakfast with Hansi too! :wOOt: You see, unlike you, I don't care much about the fact he's getting old, bald and fat. :P All I care about is his supernatural voice... :bow:

ok first off I got what you meant, still i also think that a party with therion is much more fun than a party with your voices :nana: and you not being interested in a party with them only proves you haven't met them to see how wonderful they are :shifty:
second, no i didn't go to the breakfast/dinner (dunno which one it was in Zurich), i'm not that rich :P
and third, i don't care that Hansi is growing old and fat, i do like his voice (a lot) still I like Mats' better, because I'm so tired of explaining this, i think Mats is much more polivalent than Hansi... i prefer his timbre and his tone and the fact that he can sing more kinds of metal and non-metal music than Hansi... why do you have to impose your tastes on everyone else's... if i prefer Mats you're not going to change my mind by constantly shoving Hansi down my throat, the only thing that you're gonna do is get me more and more annoyed with you and with him by association... so if you like Hansi as much as you say you do stop doing this for his sake, if not for anything else ;)

Sorry but I prefer to hang out with bad people... like my voices! :ninja: Right now, Anette is on the repertoire, so to speak... :P

*speaks to the voices*

No! That's bad... BAD!!! :afaid:







:biggrin:

why do you have to impose your tastes on everyone else's... if i prefer Mats you're not going to change my mind by constantly shoving Hansi down my throat, the only thing that you're gonna do is get me more and more annoyed with you and with him by association... so if you like Hansi as much as you say you do stop doing this for his sake, if not for anything else ;)

edit: Oh and btw MissSwan, you might want to check that photo topic. ;) I posted there a pic of you showing your general attitude... :fish:
