Coldplay live in Toronto 2006

Just sharing: I’ve watched some Coldplay live performances online, but for me, this one is the best.

It was said on Wikipedia that this concert should be released in DVD format but it never happened. I guessed that it was too bad since they made mistakes (obvious, since Chris paused the song and replayed from earlier part). Since it was never been released, I guess that this performance did not gain a lot of attractions like their mistake in Glastonbury 2011.

I’d say this concert was better than Live 2012 since in this concert, it was just X&Y era: their hits weren’t that many and they performed most of X&Y songs in this concert. For the album X&Y, I like some songs and other songs were just so-so. But when they performed those “just so-so” songs in this concert and I was amazed. It was just beautifully done.

“Recess week”, Semester 2

9 March 2014

Although this week was supposed to be a recess week for everyone in NTU, I felt this recess week is not that relaxing compared to the previous semester’s recess week. This week, my spending on recess week can be said very high as many times I went out of NTU and had lunch or dinner there before going back. Continue reading

Coldplay – Live2012

8 February 2013

Today, I didn’t go to school, I got a bad fever since the day before. Today I woke up feeling better, and rested whenever possible. That night, I dreamt about my friends in Pelatnas 1 TOKI 2013, playing and joking around. I missed that moment.

In the morning, I went to feel a little nostalgic when looking around things from Pelatnas: the certificate, the psychological test result, the problems, the attempts to the problems, and the screen-shots of accounts hacked during unmonitored times. I got an inspiration to create a game for the next TWoS, a game adapted from a problem of Pelatnas.

During the afternoon, I continued to code that game. I also tried to get some rest, but I couldn’t fall asleep at all. Around 4pm, I started to watched Coldplay – Live2012 live album.

First thought, I was great, Hurts Like Heaven was the first song, followed by In My Place, then a little comments for the band from Chris Martin. The next song played was Major Minus, taped in Madrid which transitioned to Paris; later followed by Yellow which Chris sang the first verse accompanied by piano chords first.

Next comment was Jonny’s, which followed by Violet Hill taped in La Cigale, and God Put a Smile Upon Your Face, which used a newer arrangement since their performance of this song in Glastonbury Festival (2011). Princess of China was next, Rihanna was featured too.

Will’s was the next to comment. There was [a quite boring] Up in Flames and Viva la Vida, which was taped in Glastonbury Festival 2011 [also quite boring, because I’ve listened to the audio for many times].

The comment next is from Guy Berryman, my favourite Coldplay member, why? because he is cool. Then it was Charlie Brown, which was very amazing, the Xylobands were there almost all the time. It was followed by Paradise, also accompanied by the wristbands. They were very colourful.

Next was Us Against the World, played alongside the crowds, in Montreal. Followed by Clocks, which was also nice, like the music video which was shiny. The next comment came up, and Fix You followed it. It was very nice, like always. The last song was Every Teardop Is a Waterfall. Up with the Birds was played alongside the credits.

Overall, it was nice, to watch a concert film. Something that I didn’t like are they are focused in Stade de France, Paris; also, some recordings are in a low quality, maybe because I’m watching the DVD version. But it was nicer than watching a normal concert, because it was dramatized and edited to make us feel thrilled.

5 January 2013

My day was started on 8:20. After cleaning myself, I got a missed-call from Leonard, so I called back, it was his problem: mistook a subject which require chemistry on entrance exam, well, I answered well what he asked. I had my breakfast on 9.30 and my shower on 10. Golfin came around 10.35 and we went to Sun Plaza after picking up Leonard.

We were the first to come. Eventually, the others showed up one by one as we walked around the plaza: Lenny, Edward, Vicky, Roselyn.

We took our lunch at Sushi-tei. We ordered many variety of Japanese foods. For us, the soba (the cold noodle) was the worst one: it was tasteless.

After lunch, we went to Amazone. There we played many games, like air-hockey, and weight-pulling (this one we got high-score as we combined the power of 8 people, haha). Last but not least, we took photos at the photo-box provided by them.

We went around to look for a cafe to have drinks, and at last we decided to go to J.Co. There I left them a while to buy Coldplay’s newest live album titled “Live 2012”. For my drink, I had Chocholate Frappe.

After that, we went to Gramedia. Here, I looked for the newest Reader’s Digest but found none, as replacement, I bought my first English version of National Geographic magazine. Actually, my uncle have subscribed to National Geographic since 1980s but at 2010 he cancelled the subscription. At 2006-2007, he also subscribed National Geographic Indonesia for me, at first it was very interesting, but eventually, I got no time to read it.

Got home at 5 and went directly to Malibu’s home. Arrived at 6, we still went swimming. We had dinner at 7, and I went online after that.
