Not for me it wasn't. I had wanted to see System since I was in middle school, and when they went on hiatus a few years back I thought I would never get the chance. It was probably my 2nd favorite concert, next to seeing Metallica back in 2004.

But it's fucking MAIDEN, man!

Just keep on going down that road. Not long until you wake up at 4:45 AM. :P
I fell asleep at 9AM this time... There was no getting away with oversleeping, though as my mum was at home and woke me up at 12:30PM ish. Very little sleep, sure but hopefully I can sleep easier tonight.

Yes, that should help. It's no use trying to go to sleep early, if you wake up late in the afternoon.

Good for you. Too bad they only have one UK show and that's at Download. For a tour named Maiden ENGLAND, it's sure as hell false advertising.
Well, at least they don't call it "Maiden England" and then don't play any show at all. ^^
They may as well not play any damn shows in England. The band's big enough to have their own damn show and not play at some shitty festival.

I don't know, I always had the impression that the crowd at a festival is more relaxed. Must have something to do with people drinking for a few days, so they are in a very relaxed state of mind, haha.

Perhaps not even soft porn in this case. :P
It's "soft" porn. But "soft" porn just doesn't make any sense. Who on earth wants to see two people fucking, without actually seeing them fucking? It's like trying to get drunk by drinking alcohol-free beer.
Well, there's the attempt of an erotic view but even then it's just not that effective.

No, there's nothing erotic about most soft porn movies.

And your chances at showing up at a meet here aren't that great either. I'm going to guess that was my only chance to even see you here for a long time.
There's a tiny chance that I might be visting London for the CL match Arsenal against Bayern. But it's only a VERY tiny chance. But I sure as hell will visit the UK in the following years.
I'd like to visit Germany sometime. The place seems very metal friendly and it would be cool to go to a live show over there. My sister has thought of these ideas more than I have but then again, I'm unemployed and she's not.

But then it had to be some big show or a festival. Would be kind of silly to fly over to Germany and then visit a show in a small club that can only hold about 100 visitors.

Have you tried antihistamine? (I use that Vicks ZzzQuil stuff) It works pretty well for me when I'm having trouble falling asleep.

I was a little slow on it at first. Had all my friends shouting out "OPPA GANGNAM STYLE!" and I was wondering what the fuck everyone was on about. Then I saw the video and I was like "Ahh I see now." Gotta admit, it's a fun tune.

Yeah, I suppose it is catchy, though it gets old after hearing it played unbidden about 5 million times or so. :P

I'm not trying to downplay the legend that is Iron Maiden, but the SOAD show was a bigger deal for me, personally.

It was like a check off the bucket list for me, ya know? :P

I did it! My sleeping time was more reasonable! Fell asleep at 3AM and woke up at 11:30AM. Got 8 hours sleep from that and I feel better because of that.

I think I'm getting better - The cold seems to have lost it's bite, so I'll hopefully start recovering properly now :)

I've been lucky for the most part. If I do have to catch one soon, just let it be before the meet commences.

Where I live, a lot of things are generally downhill when going to work. If it's heading back, it's going uphill. Can't say I love the unstable level of land here but at least this area isn't liable to flooding.
That's perfect - down hills to work, before taking a slog back on the bike, or walking it up the hills as a worse-case scenario.

Eh, I'd rather it be easy on the way back just so I don't have to push a lot just to get back home. When I was still in the hell known as school, it was cycling downhill but getting back uphill and some paths were so steep I had to walk my bike up.

The keyword is attempt so really, it fails.

Yeah, that'll be the idea. This would be exceptional to go to a festival since after all, Germany just seem to do it a whole lot better. Mind you, IF I was to have a relationship with someone outside Britain, Germany is one place I wouldn't rule out providing there are reliable trains from London to get there.

And now I can't even go anywhere without the radio playing it. Infact, I even heard my neighbours playing it full blast. That's the second good thing they've done to us, the first informing us of a budgie they found on their car that they thought was ours.

I feel that I've got to wade in here - while I've been to see Maiden live and I loved them, there is a touch of nostalgia for singing along with Chop Suey, while driving back up the motorway.

I'd still take a chance to see Maiden again over any other band... except perhaps Michael Jackson or Queen, but since they are dead, that might be a factor in it.

I always liked the idea that you had to slog up the hill to get home, then you could make out that you'd had a far harder day at work and get sympathy for it.

Well, there was the Queen musical... and "Ton Steine Scherben" (a german punk band from the 70's/80's) had a tour with a different singer. It worked really well. Also, the Ramones are still on stage, even though only Marky remains from one of the "real" Ramones.

And even Led Zeppelin where up on stage once more, so "never say never".

More work done to sort out crap in my bedroom, even though I didn't get a say on when I could go through my wardrobe. At least now all of that is cleared out and it's just a few drawers to sort out and then that'll be everything I don't want out of the house. On another note, I had another good night sleep, although I did sleep a little longer than needed. What do you expect when you're sleeping on a really comfortable bed and it feels so cold outside?

Not much of a surprise there. I'm more comfortable with trains than I am with planes. And besides, trains should be cheaper than planes.

First real job? By then (2006), I was working in an office and had been for a year. Now I've left that place behind and have taken another massive step forward. But hey, that's me.

I'd still take a chance to see Maiden again over any other band...
I would still love to see them, though I would want to see Rush first.

If only for Neil Peart.

except perhaps Michael Jackson or Queen, but since they are dead, that might be a factor in it.

Burton was awesome. One of the greatest dead rock stars, much like Keith Moon.

The only reason I say never is that No-one could replace Freddie Mercury, like no-one could replace Michael Jackson. Sure, the music will be good, but it's not the same without them.

Yeah, I can trust cold meds/paracetamol but that's about it. If what I take from the doctors don't even help with any of my problems, then what's even the damn point of taking them?

I try and be tolerant because we do have a 3 year old cousin who can be loud and obnoxious. Not only that, what if I had a child? Mind you, I don't even have a relationship so having a child is far off for me but it's still a point. In that potential future, I have to understand children better.

Been a busy week, apart from stressing about an assignment which I have submitted and no louder stressing about, I passed an exam I had last year, my friend sold me his PS3 for 50 pounds (I haven't played it yet, hur no games but really I have Demon's Souls on the way), I brought an Ocarina and it came yesterday, it's much harder than it looks and we're getting a dog today.

Good question. There's a girl I know who was put on ritalin as a kid and her mom has since allowed the addition of several other meds since. It's to the point now where she needs them just to function normally in pretty much every way -not to mention she's underweight because the shit she's on suppresses appetite. Watching that kind of thing develop over the years has instilled in me a dislike for prescription drugs.

Jesus. That goes to show what bad it can do to a human being. I try to not take allergy tablets all the time just to settle eczema down. If it feels like I won't get comfortable shortly, then it's necessary but I can go a few weeks without the need to take any.

Classic record. Probably one of the best produced albums ever. The mixing of everything is simply spot on.

I always liked Deliverance better. Even though, you cannot really say "Deliverance is better than Blackwater Park" or vice versa. Both are just great.

I made a better attempt now and it worked.
That's good to hear. It should be easier to adjust your sleeping times a bit more towards "normal sleeping times" now.
Yeah, I woke up at 11:30AM today. Still fine and maybe if I'm wearing myself out with work around the house, it'll be another easy night.

You only have a sleeping problem when you are tired as hell but you simply cannot fall asleep. I had that a few years ago, where I simply couldn't sleep for about 3 days. I mean, I maybe dozed off every now and then, but "a good nights sleep" is something completly different. Luckily I could sleep on the 4th day.

Who knows, but they should still have their own show. Fuck going to Download just for one band.
Yeah, attending a whole festival for just one band isn't that great.
Especially when Download tend to have terrible bands on. It's bad enough Maiden have shit choices for support act for their live shows.

Most support bands just suck ass.

You'd have to get to Germany via France if you want to go by train, as far as I know. Planes are a much faster way to get here. ;)
Not much of a surprise there. I'm more comfortable with trains than I am with planes. And besides, trains should be cheaper than planes.

I don't know if trains are really that much cheaper. But I do know that planes are just way faster.

The only reason I say never is that No-one could replace Freddie Mercury, like no-one could replace Michael Jackson. Sure, the music will be good, but it's not the same without them.

Wasn't there a show once where they had Freddy on a big screen (various tapes from their live shows) and the rest of the band live on stage? Or maybe I'm just mixing that up with some other band.

Also, I never was a fan of MJ. Especially in his later days he was just annoying.

It's not just his bass playing, though. (Which is awesome, anyway) But the fact that he plays two different instruments and sings -the guy's freaking talented. Lifeson is a great guitarist, though. I always saw him as the "overlooked" member of Rush, which really attests to the talent of that band.

They did put that up at the Olympics, I believe. It's not the same, like War of the Worlds with the hologram of Richard Burton

Also, I never was a fan of MJ. Especially in his later days he was just annoying.

The first album I ever purchased was Bad. I may not have agreed with some of the aspects of his personal life, but his singing was fantastic.

MGS4 is an obvious one. God of War if you're into it? I'm not but surely it's a title to pick up if you're into it. I could do with dusting off my PS3 a bit and play some more games on it.

Blackwater Park did give them the recognition they needed and they celebrated their 20th anniversary with this record for a very good reason.

At least it's not a whole day waiting for the damn band.

Eh, you have to book TWO journeys just to get to Germany from here by train. Well, there's a matter of getting to London by train first. :P Shame it can't be more like National Rail where it acknowledges multiple changes along the journey. Thankfully this isn't something I need to worry about for the time being. Unless it becomes a planned family holiday, I'll only go to Germany for either live shows or if it so happens a relationship with someone will be there but that idea is highly unlikely.

And yeah, originality is a rare commodity these days. lol.

Yeah, I just have this idea that I don't want kids in my 20's. I still feel like a kid myself a lot of the time, not to mention I'm not even close financially speaking.
