no comments needed...  :wOOt:

Can you believe some people (Tuomas "" Holopainen included :P) claim she acts like a diva!? ::) They know nothing I say... she does not ACT like a diva, she IS a diva! :bow:

Btw, I might send an invitation to the Finnish president Tarja Halonen to join my street team, for inviting Tarja to that celebration! :wOOt:
*Tarja Halonen*-> :fish: <- *Tuomas Holopainen*

Should we open a topic for Tarja discussion? :lol3:

No, I prefer to troll OFFy's topic while he can do nothing to stop me, because he does not have special powers on this forum... :biggrin: Did you know that he locked 10 pages long Nightwish topic on the official forum!? :mad3: And need I say that 50% of posts were mine? :biggrin:

Speaking about trolling...

The old D&W is ok , new one is better though

I like them both, but I somehow prefer the old one... because it is darker, more raw and has the songs Fiddler on the Green and Blood on my Hands! :bow:

Are you saying you actually haven't heard it before?  :insane:
But the most important thing is that you said the whole album sucks  :fish:

Maybe you should listen to the whole cd2? It's instrumental...so you can sing along using your super hot Tarja - impersonating voice  :fish:  :biggrin:
and then record it and send it to every Tarja fan in the whole wide world! You have our support  :thumbup:  :lol3:

Sorry, I just needed something to bring this topic back to life  :biggrin:
Oh, and I'm not embarrassing you...
I'm trying to make you popular...I'm trying to make people believe you are really good. That way they will buy your cd, if you ever decide to release one...
have you ever heard of the word commercialisation:biggrin:

have you ever heard of the word commercialisation:biggrin:

Not until recently, when I read an interview with Nightwish headman, sorry my mistake(:P), Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen. He was ranting something about "the commercial factor of the Internet" and its compensating effects... :blink: :wacko: :blink:

Quote
Once There Was: Another important issue in the music business is that illegal downloading is widespread. Do you think it has an effect on you guys like income-wise or anything at all? You as a big-selling artist and you as a not-so-big-selling artist…

Tuomas: When it comes to us, I think it definitely has an impact, but it also goes both ways. So I think in the end it doesn't really hurt us that much. I would like to think that our fans are still the kind of people who want to buy the real thing with the real cover and booklet and everything. And it's also good advertising, you know. You don't have to go to a shop and listen to the album, you can just go to the Internet, download a few songs and then be like, "OK, this sounds good." And I really think that they want to buy the whole album. If there are 10,000 people in the world who don't want to buy it, who are satisfied with just downloading it, it doesn't matter because the commercial factor of the Internet compensates it.

Will somebody please explain to him that even Metallica failed and that Nightwish is not Metallica... ::)

Btw, here is the link to the interview. ;)

edit:
That part in the interview about Anette matches PERFECTLY with Tuomas' facial expression here!!! :o Something is telling me Netty won't long... :biggrin:

Thank you One but I've already seen it. :) Here is my quote from the official forum...

HA HA HA HA HA HA, dodjavola, od ovog zadnjeg dijela sam imala vizualizaciju: nakostrijesen, rezi na ekran i doslovno se pjeni, noktima grebe po stolu pa bjesomucno tipka post :-D

Ne zaboravi neizbjezno lupanje po tipkovnici...
BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! BUM! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Kao ovo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5boZVyvL_tc

:-D

It's the same link... :nana:

But I like the new vocalist - she has a voice similar to us...

So true Sheep! :roll:

Haha! :D NeMo, do you also crash your PC like this boy when you hear Nettis?  ;D

No, only when OFFy pisses me off! :P Wolfshade does that quote of mine ring a bell to you? :biggrin:

So...  I decided not to get the new NW album or the Tarja album.

Can't be bothered any more. 


I do have all the previous NW albums though. 

I also found a brief clip from the concert when I saw them in 2004...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn2XJfhqyQc

I must've been stood right next to whoever made this clip!  Coz that's where I was in the crowd too.  As you can see, it's from Tarja's red coat phase. Lovely.

@Triocton: Lucky you they performed She Is My Sin! :wOOt: That song rocks... one of my all time Nightwish favourites... and it's equally good live. :) Tarja did some nice headbanging there... "jackhammer" tecnique. Back at that time she had already abandoned "poser" tecnique but still didn't venture with doing "windmill"... ;)

:bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:
 :bow:Lost Norther Star with Tarja.... OF COURSE!!! :bow:
 :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Her hedabanging is just PERFECT!

She used "jackhammer" techique here several times, but she also used "windmill" tecnique 3 times! At 1:11, 2:55 and 3:05! I personally find "windmill" tecnique the hardest and the most impressive. You need to have the longest hair for that one, and I always feel dizzy after doing that, so I need to repeat it in the other direction... and that's weak... lame... ::) However she always does it in the same direction! :bow: I don't remember seeing her doing "windmill" back in Nightwish. There she used "poser" left-right tecnique most of the time which she doesn't do anymore! :thumbup:
