A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to make an old dream come true: experience an Aerosmith concert! I had been waiting for it for a long time (even dreaming about travelling to the states if it had to come to that) and last year -sadly- their last european tour was announced. (They're breaking up. I guess it's because they're too old to keep doing this kind of shit.)

So, of course, I was there the first day to buy tickets and I spent a considerable amount to be on the first rows but it was SO worth it! My girlfriend is a bit afraid of crowds, so I wasn't able to be as close as I would have liked to (and this made me hate the human race for being so obsessed with smartphones because on the best parts everyone held their phones up to record -WTF?!), but still it was memorable.

Old Joey Kramer seemed like he was about to collapse during the first 5 songs or so (he looked like he was playing the drums soooo slowly I couldn't understand how the songs sounded right lol) but then he kind of woke up. Tom Hamilton is so classy we've fallen in love with him. Joe does crazy shit with his guitar (and one thing struck me: Steven said about him "the only one who's better than me" -and that, being Steven Tyler, is *something*). And Steven was born to be a rockstar: at first I thought he was high (because of his face and speech) but then I realised with all those twists and dances he would have fallen down if that was the case; he looks so crazy on stage I thought he was going to throw his microphone (with the stick attached to it) to the fans; I just loved him.

I am crossing my fingers and wishing a DVD comes out with a concert from this tour recorded because I want to watch every second again and everything I couldn't see there (for instance, Brad -I could only take a glimpse at him a couple of times).

Some years ago I bought the official autobiography of the band, but I hadn't really gotten into it until this year. I am still reading it and it's mindblowing. The things these five people did back when they were on the top (and getting there). It makes me appreciate even more some of the things they have done. Although it also makes me a bit sad seeing how some songs were just written to get the new album out of the way (but some other songs have a new meaning now that I know the backstory to them). I'm loving it! I've been listening to Aerosmith since I was 10, but now I'm becoming even more of a fan. I'm just sad I won't have the chance to see them live again. :( (But! I could at least do it once!! =D)

Lie to me is a show that could look like so many others: a team of researchers solving crimes and other mysteries, an obvious OTP and a secondary OTP, tons of stand-alones that only let slip parts of their personal life from time to time (but, oh, how juicy they are!). BUT. It is not just another crime-solving procedimental series.

First of all: LTM is your best happy place! There's this delightful character (Gillian Foster) who is so cute and tender and clever and sexy and feels so much like home that you won't need anything else to feel warm on a winter's night. At her side there's this weird fun character who cares so much for her that even on his strange way he's so nice and lovely when it comes to her (plus, some of you might find him sexy: it's Tim Roth). Besides them, there is also a beautiful and lovely teenage girl who will make you want to have kids if they're anything like her (for real: I wish I could be half the woman she's turning into). And there are great fangirl moments on the show (tender, romantic, exciting) and a lot of nonsense (things that'll make you smile and laugh).








Second: Gillian Foster. You'll know what I mean when you meet her. She's just perfect. So silly and so happy and so empatic (is that a word?). I love her. I absolutely adore her. I have a fanclub card and a ninja t-shirt (because of a fandom silly thing) and I even made an LJ community (which I must admit I abandoned long ago >.<). You may think I'm a bit mad, but that'll only be until you meet her. You need her in your life.





This is Tim Roth.


Third: It's sadly a short series so it won't take you too long. 3 seasons of 13 episodes. FOX is to blame. And, at least for people living on Spain, it's on Netflix!


Ps. That one on my icon is Emily, the teenage girl I was talking about.

I'd been waiting for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 since the first time I walked out of the cinema after watching GotG Vol 1. And I ended up not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. I absolutely loved the first volume: I think it's brilliant, original, funny, musicaly perfect and could barely be better (just maybe make Ronan more of a badass).

But Vol. 2 was so... plain when it came to jokes (they're all very basic, I barely laughed during the whole movie) and part of what happened was either forced or didn't fit well on the movie. I enjoyed little Groot and I liked seeing Kurt Russell and his plot and, of course, Starlord's blue father and his part of the story. But I went in expecting to love it nearly as much as I loved the first one and, well... It didn't came even close. I need to watch it again to have a better opinion, but I think I will enjoy even much more the first movie now.

And then there's Wonder Woman. For weeks I've seen comments in here from people amazed by the movie and I was so looking forward to watch it that I got a bit dissapointed as well. It's a good superhero movie, but it's now the life-changing event I was expecting. Idk. I kind of got the feeling that it was superfeministic by your comments andminor spoilerCollapse )

So that's that. I don't think I'll be expecting much of any movie anytime soon and I guess that's good because that way I'll be positively surprised.

I've finished watching season 3 of The 100 and, loving the show as I am, I need to say how injust it is that the main character and hero of the show is someone who is so boring and so unlikeable as Clarke; while there are other awesome characters that don't get the atention and respect they deserve.

Spoilers for S3Collapse )

I have to say the show surprised me greatly. I'll keep watching: this is worth it.

So I am watching The 100, and I realise I know this acctress from Dollhouse (it's Sierra!); so I start liking her character (Anya) more because it reminds me of Sierra. And then I went into IMDB to check her and I learn that she's half Australian half Tibetan -which is awesome! So now I'm starting to think I need to keep an eye on her. And I need to finally end Dollhouse (I believe I never watched the real ending because I watched the alternate ending and my enthusiasm for the show fade out).

I met Jamie Bamber. I met Jamie Bamber. I met Jamie Bamber. I met Jamie Bamber. I met Jamie Bamber. I met Jamie Bamber TODAY!!!! And it was something unexpected AND I AM JUMPING ON THE COUCH AT 00.30h!!

He came to present his new film (Money) at a city nearby and I had the best luck and read the cinema's magazine last week and found out! (I wouldn't have known otherwise -I no longer hang on fansites so much and these things with people that are not so much known on Spain are barely addvertised.)

My lovestory with him.Collapse )

This is Us is the only new show I have watched this year and I am SO GLAD I did. Because it's such an endearing show: it is a drama (so you'll see dramatic stories in it) but it has so many nice and tender moments that it makes you feel warm. And every character is pretty. Even Kevin. Even Becca.

Read more...Collapse )

So, is anyone watching? What are your thoughts? =)

Me? I'm looking for icons right now! LOL

Ps. If anyone know This is us communities, I'd be thankful for any links you can give me. I find it so hard and frustrating to look for communities in LJ! ¬¬'
