A lot of time has passed since my last post here. I guess it’s about time to write something new here also.

The beginning of 2012 has been interesting and full of different emotions. In January I went to London for a couple of days. The short trip there was just awesome. When we left Estonia we had -20C but in London we had +5C-0C. So it was a lot warmer than in Estonia. We arrived in London in Wednesday and got back late Saturday evening. While in London I re-visited some places I had already seen but didn’t mind seeing again (like Madame Tussaud’s) and also visited new places like British Museum and Sherlock Holmes museum. We used the underground a lot and just walked around the city seeing a lot of cool places, visiting some shops and just getting the London-vibe.  Spring was already in the air in London. Of course this was before the Siberian cold wave and snow. And I got something I wanted from London also – I visited the Illamasqua make-up store and bought there the S.O.P.H.I.E wrist band. It demonstrates the refusal to accept mindless prejudice and shows support for Sophie Lancaster. All proceeds will go to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. And I think (although I’m not sure) we saw prince Charles drive by in the motorcade. This London trip was definitely the highlight of January.

On February 7 I went to Riga to see Rammstein live. Rammstein is currently having its “Made In Germany” European tour. The concert itself was beyond awesome but the journey there and back was exhausting. Mainly because I had to drive from Tartu to Tallinn (200km) then from Tallinn to Riga (310km) and back again. When I finally got home I was drop dead tired. But it was worth it. Rammstein’s show this time was even better than last time. As promised they played all their biggest hits and did also their show numbers. I especially liked the idea of having a smaller stage among people also on which they performed 2-3 songs. I was lucky to be almost in the front row when they were performing on the smaller stage and could see Paul up close. It was awesome.

  1. Sonne
  2. Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen

What was pretty cool as well was the fact that there were so many Estonians there. I can honestly say that half of the Latvian crowd was actually Estonian. So to sum it all up – the show was as good as always, the band was awesome, the choice of songs was good and the emotion I got from this concert cannot be put into words, it has to be experienced. And Rammstein will always remain a band that I will see again and again as long as they keep performing.

What I haven’t been doing is what I actually promised I would do and that is Heavy Metal News Weekly on Youtube. I feel really guilty about it because I’ve been keeping my eye on my channel as much as it is possible and I’ve noticed that I’ve gained more followers and overall I’ve gotten so much positive letters, comments and messages. I am truly grateful for it. The reasons why I haven’t posted any videos so far are many. In the beginning of January I had some problems with my camera and also felt that I have to make a video, not that I’d WANT to make a video. Then in the middle of January things at work had already become so hectic that I didn’t have any time and then I flew to London. Pretty soon came the Rammstein concert in Riga. Afterwards I was again busy at work and that’s how the first 2 months of this year have gone by without any “Heavy Metal News Weekly”. I will try to do better and get things started again. I do not promise it but I will do my very best. Because to me doing “Heavy Metal News” is more satisfying than my everyday job but I do need an everyday job also because doing “Heavy Metal News” doesn’t help me get my bills paid. If someone is willing to pay me for doing news on Youtube about music (especially heavy metal/rock) then let me know – I am more than willing 😉

And of course I’ve had negative emotions too. I’ve had to deal with some very negative people who have insulted and hurt me to my core and I believe I will never forgive them. I just hope I still find the strength in me to keep dealing with them.

End note: Nightwish‘s new album “Imaginarium” came out 30.11.2011. I got this album in the beginning of  December and I’ve been listening to this album ever since non-stop. I just love it so much. It’s something different from them yet it still has the basic Nightwish elements, it’s epic and it’s soft, it’s heavy metal and it’s lyrical ballads, it’s really like a roller-coaster ride. No matter what anyone says I love this album. Period.
