Sometimes I'm very frustrated that my number one favorite band is Nightwish. Being a US Nightwish fan is very troublesome, especially when they don't release a song on youtube. Shudder Before the Beautiful
has been released, but only at the Helsinki Times website. Apparently, my adobe flash player on my laptop isn't high enough or something (can't read Finnish and Chrome is being dumb for not asking to translate, YET it asks to translate shit from Spanish whenever I click on art from a Spanish speaking artist here on DA? Like, serious! WTF CHROME!?) and my NOOK won't even begin to play it. It kinda just withers and dies and refuses to do what I want it to do.
All I want is to listen to ONE SONG by my FAVORITE BAND!!!
Is that so difficult? Is that so hard for my technology to grasp?!
Apparently it is.
Now most of you would say just wait for the album to come out.
The album doesn't come out until 31MAR15 in the United States. Luckily, I"ll get it same day shipping thanks to AmazonPrime, but still
.... I haven't to wait to the end of March, bang my head in frustration at youtube for not playing the posted videos of the songs from the UK and EUR people that ALREADY HAVE it, and be jealous about the people that already have it before the US fans!
Why didn't you just order it from Finland?
Oh, and wait a month for it?
I pre-ordered Elan from MadSupply, didn't get it until the end of February. It came out 13FEB15.
It's hard being a loyal fan. I'm such a Nightwish nerd it's not even funny. :/
All that I'm missing are the singles collections (waaaaaaay to much money honestly, considering that some of them are probably out of print) and a bunch of bandshirts and I think one other book and some live dvds and random other stuff they've released. Regardless, I've all their studio releases, even the B-sides (a total of 107 songs, thereabouts). While I have't memorized each member's life story, I know all their firsts names, and can tell you (in a nutshell) why Tarja and Anette got dismissed. I seriously love
Nightwish. If I had a one hundred million bucks, I'd follow them on a world tour. Just for the hell of it.
But I'm not bloody rich. I'm just a poor college student banging her head against a wall because technology is being a dick and won't allow me to listen to one song.
In other news my dad is getting on my nerves (and my mom's, we're both worried and annoyed), because he.... he's being a stubborn old man about his medical problems. (Also, he talks to the tv in a very soft and it's kinda creepy).
Now, I'm off to go get my cat.
