Iron Maiden, 16-08-2008, TT Circuit Assen

T22

"So I was flipping through channels back at the hotel, and on some channel there was something about some kind of kids’ festival near here. So they were interviewing some kids and I was like: "Oh, okay, they’re gonna talk about Maiden next" But it never came. How come Dutch tv doesn’t give a shit about us, but interview people at garbage like that? I guess I should be proud, because the day they start interviewing people at Iron Maiden concerts is the day we’ve become mainstream, and that just sucks."

    Hoewel het concert echt super was (het meest uitgepakt van alle concerten die ik van Maiden heb gezien) vond ik dit een reactie van een ouwe zuurpruim. Zelf speelde Iron Maiden een tijd terug nog op festival Graspop in Belgie. Ook waren op Lowlands oude goede bands als Sex Pistols. En hoezo Iron Maiden geen mainstream? 20 jaar geleden stonden ze constant in de top 40 en nu komen er 25000 man kijken bij het concert tegen 55000 duizend voor een 3 daags festival. Niet slecht lijkt me! Dus, niet zeuren, gewoon goed blijven spelen!

    Hihi, ik heb toevallig zelf een hekel aan Lowlands, vandaar dat ik het erop heb gezet, maar inderdaad, ik zei het zelf ook al tegen de don: “Als je ‘n heel circuit vol kan krijgen kun je moeilijk volhouden dat je geen mainstream bent.”
    Overigens is Graspop een metalfestival (en dus niet mainstream per se) terwijl op Lowlands slechts enkele metalbands komen en voornamelijk gaye Mtv shit, dus wat dat betreft heeftie wel gelijk.
    Maar het is wel zo dat in Nederland shit als Lowlands en Pinkpop enorm veel aandacht krijgen, zowel in magazines als op tv, terwijl metal concerten en festivals zoals Graspop en Wacken totaal niet voorbij komen, en dat terwijl de helft van Lowlands vorig jaar gewoon compleet werd uitgezonden, daar hadtie ook wel ‘n punt vindik.

    Hmm misschien krijgt graspop en wacken minder aandacht omdat het in belgie en duitsland is? Is er überhaupt wel een metalfestival in Nederland dat 70 000 bezoekers trekt? Maar altijd leuk om je te horen zeuren :p Lowlands was vet, net als graspop en werchter. Alleen pinkpop vind ik nie zo’n super festival.
    Ik ben nogal gaar van lowlands dus ik ga wat slaap inhalen ^_^

#가을 인데 왜 #겨울 느낌 밖에 안 나?

It's supposedly #fall in #Korea but...it feels a lot like #winter.

#창덕궁 #Changdeokgung #Palace #서울 #옛날 #전통 #역사 #한국 #Korean #KoreanPalace #Seoul #traditional #history #autumn You know, when it comes to the '#audiophile' #earbuds market, a lot of recommended #headphones are actually from China. The reason is that most Western companies have given up on earbuds in favor of #IEM, so basically it's either cheap no-brand crap or apple #earphones.

Thankfully, some of the Chinese offerings are actually just as great as people's online raving suggests; The #Yuin #PK3 is almost decade old now, but still delivers the best #audio quality I've heard in an earbud for under $50, and the #Edifier #P180 is seriously such a giant step up from your garden variety earbuds at a price of only 12 bucks that I can't understand why they aren't more popular.

The #Auglamour #RX1 was a complete and utter disappointment with tinny #sound I never expected after all the positive talk about it on #Headfi though. Seems like most of the budget from the $22 price went into the packaging, which is admittedly quite pretty.

Of course my main pair of headphones, the #Koss #Portapro - which hasn't changed at all in design since 1984 because they are just THAT good - isn't Chinese but good ol' Murrikan, and I always love taking them out even though they make my head look huge in compassion to their small footprint.

The #JVC #HAFXC51 were tauted as amazing IEMs back when I got them but although they don't sound bad, I just can't get used to having those little pieces of plastic lodged so deeply into my ear canal.. So..thank God for #China, I guess. 
For helping old-fashioned men like me find ways to still comfortably enjoy their #music.

#Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #traditional #wood #ZuidKorea #Namsangol #Hanok #ancient #trees #green #home #서울 #남산골 #한옥 #자연 #전통 #나무 #한국 So glad I finally stopped wondering why I never go to any #concerts in #Korea and just got up and went to one.

@emuartspace was probably the most 'homely' (#gezellig) venue I've ever visited, @bowhang_smacksoft was as impressive as expected, @imhyeonjeong enchanted me with her beautiful voice and the duet of @musicsollee (거꾸로도 #이솔이) and #조현정 made me wish they'd spend more time together.

It might be a bit more work trying to find concerts here, but it's definitely worth it.

who split himself in two.
The one part never changed at all;
the other grew and grew.

The changeless part was always true,
The growing part was always new,
And I wondered, when the tale was through,
Which part was me, and which was you.
