Finally watching Oscars. I love Queen, but…I’m sorry, I really can’t stand Adam Lambert. It’s beyond me why people let him take this place… Hell, I know a small Czech cover band vocalist who would do 3 times better job


Sonata Arctica Lyrics
“I Have A Right”

Give me the right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

Father, there’s a little flower
Beautiful and different, all alone… All alone…
Is it so, Dad? I’m not supposed to
Make the world anew, and be like you? Am I you?

Give me the gift to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something.

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

…Right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be me…

You made it clear right from the start
I am to take your sour heart within, one sad day…
But I will never teach my son
Embittered history, tried and true, ’cause I’m not you…

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To have every gift… I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

Give me the eyes so I see,
Give me ears so I hear,
Give me love so I know what love is,
Give me the freedom to think,
To believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

[Spoken:]
I have a special right to grow up,
and to develope physically and spiritually
in a healthy and normal way.
Free, and with dignity.
I have the right to love, and understanding.
My parents have special responsibilites
for my education and guidance.
I should be taught peace, understanding, tollerance,
and friendship among all people.

So give me the gift to hear, to see,
The love, the freedom to choose the things I feel,
To be right for the world you’ll leave me…
Give something.

Give me the right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

I have a right to be heard,
To be seen, to be loved, to be free,
To be everything I need to be me,
To be safe, to believe… in something

Right to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard, to be seen,
To be loved, to be free, to be everything,
I need to be heard…

today we’ll listen to northmen telling us that ‘life is better alive’ and how it’s a ‘dumb thing to say, but won’t wane away’

and later I’ll maybe rant

p.s.
a voice actor managed to record ‘impotence’ instead of ‘impertinence’ and not a single person managed to notice. How the freak does that even happen.

How my own idiocy turns around to save me:

Me: stuffing big hardcover book into my smaller bag (I really didn’t want to carry a bigger bag), being surprised that it actually fits, not realising that it only fits because my wallet is not there.
Me: hour later on the train, finally realising why the book was able to fit. Realising that no wallet means no coffee money and no lunch money. Trying to think if 900 yen ($9) I probably have on my train card will be enough to by something… somewhere.
Me: 5 mins later, sticking my hand in my pocket and finding my credit card, which I forgot there when I went out to convenience store 3 days ago.

I usually never carry cards in my pockets.
And now my one slip-up saves me from my another slip-up.

Medetashi-Medetashi.

This band should be 1000 times more recognised and appreciated than it probably is.

They speak right to the soul, sometimes a bit too much, and I don’t think I’ve met any other English-speaking band do it like they do.

I was running through crowds and fighting some people in funny hats with a sabre that didn’t feel entirely real in my hand… in my dream tonight.
And my brother (who was fighting with some sort of naginata) decided to get married in the middle of all that. And I was the only one on his side of the family (hiding my sabre behind my back), and the mother of the bride cried when she thanked me for coming.
And then the enemies came, I shouted ‘Battle formation!’ and woke up.
… and I don’t even have a brother.

what I really dislike, is when I go to a live and people next to me start to take more of my attention than the people on the stage

one time there was a girl (woman?)
Who started the evening by taking off her pink very high-hilled pumps. And standing barefoot on the cold, dirty floor (it’s winter, people around were wearing boots) of the live house. Which was enough of wtf on itself. But next she started to make noises of birthing lioness right next to me. Which is very hard to stay indifferent to. Later she also used her hair to switch everyone around and sweep the floor while at it. (She probably should’ve swept first, and then taken her shoes off)
It’s not even really annoying, more funny if anything, but it just gets in the way of focusing on what I went there to focus on…
