One day at work, I was listening to Bryan Adams’ songs on my mobile and remembered that he came 10 years ago to Lebanon but I didn’t have the chance to attend the concert. So, I looked at my friend and said: “I wish Bryan Adams holds another concert in Lebanon”. After few hours, while checking my Facebook, the first post on my homefeed was “Bryan Adams – One night only in Lebanon” 😀 (Thank you Uncle D for the post) Definitely I clicked “Attending”. Then it was time to spread the news and gather the friends.
Tickets bought; and after a long wait came Dec. 14, 2010 and went to Forum de Beyrouth with two of my favorite people: my fake dad and sousi!
I really didn’t believe my eyes when Bryan stepped on the stage. I got to attend his concert! 😀 Was it a dream? NO! It was real! The guy was right there on stage with his guitar playing all my favorite songs (he didn’t play “When You Love Someone”) But at least I got the chance to see and listen to him playing “Please Forgive Me” live on stage. It is my number one song. Asking someone to forgive you just because you can’t stop loving them and just can’t let go. The lyrics of that song and the music touch my heart. And when it was performed on stage, my heart was…emm…well…let’s say happy.
Other songs that he played: Summer of 69; Run to you; Back to you; Everything I Do; Here I am; You’ve been a Friend to me; I’m Ready; Cuts like a knife; Cloud number 9; Let’s Make a Night to Remember; Heaven; All for Love; etc.
But the best part was when he came back on stage after he said goodnight for the first and second time; but the third time, he was gone for good.
I love his music so much. The way he sings, the way he plays his guitar is AMAZING. I loved every moment of that night 😀
Please Bryan don’t wait for another 10 years to come back! Come back soon.
1 – Fireworks: total waste of money.
What pleasures do fireworks give? The light? Well you can use other lighting systems. The voice? It’s so loud, awful and bothering. You can use drums instead 😀 AT least, drums and lighting systems are re-usable stuff.
Yes, fireworks is the same as putting your money on fire.
2 – Some radio hosts:
The scene: you’re listening to a radio show, and they played your favorite song. You’re happy and enjoying it; but the host decides to sing or comment, and you can no longer hear your song :@.
Really it annoys me so much. Ofcourse, I do have my favorite song on my mobile device, mp4, CD, whatever device; but it gives me great pleasure when I hear it without planning/expecting it.
Aren’t those part of entertainment? Supposedly, yes they are.
Thus, when I want to entertain myself and waste an hour or so to watch something, it better be good and makes me laugh NOT, and I repeat NOT cry.
On a regular day, a human being faces enough stress, madness and craziness. For that, “entertainment time” should be really entertaining.
Hope you enjoy listening to these. More to come soon.
With all the ads and posters advertising for this new film, I wasn’t curious at all to know what it is. “Oh please not another vampire story” I thought. Never even watched the ads or trailers. Didn’t even google it to know what’s it about.
But one day mom called me “Hey, Twilight is showing now, want to watch it?” I was in the kitchen, so I replied “Leave it, let’s see what the buzz is about. Be there in few minutes.” And I became one of Twilight’s biggest fans. And my interest grew to know more about it. So I googled it, read all about Stephenie Meyer and loved how the whole idea started from a single dream. I even searched to know more about the cast.
So what is it that made me change my mind? Twilight is not any vampire story. It’s not about those disgusting, blood thirsty vampires. I loved how extremes meet: a human being and a vampire. (reminds me about Kryptonite! yes, Superman and Lois Lane. Except that Superman never revealed who he is, and never did Edward, but Bella figured it out) I loved the fight that includes both extremes, hot and cold (Jake and Edward), to protect Bella (Oh, by the way I am on team Edward).
