Wishmaster Misheard Odysseus' Idealist Alchemical Revolution [19 May 2008|09:48am]

I've made an extremely strange misheard-lyrics animation for "Wishmaster" that I hope will give everyone a laugh. It's different from previous misheard-lyric versions of the song in that I've given it an (albeit bizarre and sometimes obscure) overarching narrative. Have fun!

Click here to watch the video.

Please feel free to cross-post this anywhere. I've already posted it in nightwish_fans and oceanborn.

I decided with a friend to open a LJ community and a new forum in homage of the old era of Nightwish. If anyone's interested here are the links:
forum: http://everdreamnwfanforum.ipbfree.com/index.php?act=idx

LJ community: http://community.livejournal.com/old_nightwish/

Please spread the word and any help in maintaining them is welcome!

For anyone still interested... [16 Oct 2007|08:41pm]

This is slightly UK specific but for anyone interested in Tarja's solo career she is doing an album and a tour very soon.

Anyone interested who is based in the UK might like to know there is a street team for the promotion of Tarja here: http://www.worst-decision.com

New Nightwish Vocalist Revealed in Terrorizer... [30 Mar 2007|11:35pm]

According to an interview with the band in the new issue of Terrorizer, the new Nightwish vocalist is...


Not only that, but they are to change the name of the band to Brightwish now they are taking on such a famous frontwoman and want her to feel part of the band.

Can anyone confirm this? I'm not making it up, it's a STOP PRESS report in the front of the mag!

Methinks this is an April Fool's joke.

Nightwish Plushies On Ebay [21 Dec 2005|03:24pm]

I made these plushies a while ago and was going to send them in a care package to the guys (through Oceansouls of America) but then I figured fans would appreciate them more so I sent a picture of them and me to the guys and the plushies themselves are available to you:


(yeah, yeah...cross-posted for all to see!) I'm not in the UK though so I might need assistance with mailing and it'd take longer.

[26 Oct 2005|05:58pm]

Taken from the official Tarja Turunen website: Tarja's respond on Nightwish's letter:

Since last Sunday morning, I have been asked to express my position by magazines, newspapers, radio and TV stations, fan clubs and fans from Finland and from all over the world. So many in total that it is physically impossible for me to find the time to reply to them all individually. Hence I decided to put down a couple of words in this text to let my fans, family and friends and the public know how I feel after the recent events.

This is a moment of grief and pain and I find it very hard to speak.

At the moment I am in Argentina. I hope you can understand that after this shocking life change comparable to a divorce, I didn’t want to stay alone at home in Finland. My husband had booked his tickets to Argentina many months ago and I decided to travel with him at the last minute. But the fact that I am in Argentina and the long distance should of course not be an excuse not to comment on the situation.

Last Friday 21st of October was a day the whole band had been waiting for a long time.
Practice started early in the morning. I was very sick and nervous because of the fact that I was not even able to sing during the rehearsals.

Also nervous because the concert programme was going to be longer than usual for a Nightwish concert. Furthermore we were going to have a special guest to perform with us, more wardrobe changes for myself than usual and for the first time big screens and bigger production on stage.
Not to forget that the concert was going to be recorded and filmed.

The five of us had finally made it to play Hartwall Arena.

Even though every one of us knew in advance that the concert was sold out, finally on stage, we saw that screaming, applauding and standing people took every seat. The feeling was unbelievable.
I will never forget how amazing it was to experience the Finnish audience’s gorgeous reception.

When the concert was over, I cried of happiness on stage. Happy tears because I was able to do my best as always even though I was sick. Happy tears because our long tour got the greatest possible ending and happy tears because of the best recognition an artist can get: applause and smiling faces.
At that moment I didn’t know that I was going to cry again soon.

After the concert, the guys of the band invited me backstage to join them and asked me to hug altogether. This felt strange as it was the same kind of hug we traditionally came together for before every concert. That tradition remained between us, even though the tension and increasing pressure already existed since a long period of time.

The immediate feeling in me was to thank them, which I did loudly but without any reply.

After this, they gave me a letter and asked me to read it the following day. The same letter that is now public.

I read it and was shocked.

I didn’t know what to say and still at the moment that I am writing these lines, I don’t.

I sense great anger in that letter and I continue to have very confused feelings about it, but I don’t want to reply to this anger with an even greater anger. Private matters should never be taken to the public.

I know this moment we are going through is very sad for everybody, including the guys.

While there would have been so many different possibilities and ways to express what they wanted to tell me with the letter, I remain unable to understand the way they chose to handle this. I am sorry that the guys got me so wrong. I don’t recognize myself at all from the way they described me.

They mentioned mean things about me, but the fact that they involved Marcelo, my husband, crossed the line. He is the man I love, my friend and has been my biggest support over the last years.

We have been band mates for 9 years, experienced good times and not so good ones. I thought I knew them, but I was wrong.

Still everything that has happened is not enough to make them evil in my eyes.

Now comes a time to calm down and reflect upon all of this.
I need to put my feelings together again and I promise to come back to public soon.
I will announce a press conference where I will be talking about my future plans. This doesn’t mean that you should expect this conference to be an instrument to attack anybody. It won’t.

The wonderful music we created together won’t be touched by recent events.

Thanks a lot to all the people who are supporting me during these sad times. My family, friends, colleagues, and the great number of fans. I love you and I really feel I have not failed you.

If anyone hasn't read the open letter... [23 Oct 2005|06:56pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

An "open letter" to Tarja was left on the Nightwish forum explaining why she has been kicked out.
There is a link to it here if you haven't read it already.

[10 Oct 2005|03:36pm]

Nightwish has kicked Tarja out of the band.

Some of the reasons was that Tarja was becoming a diva. Of course, fuelled by her husband, Marcello. At the moment, the website is not accessible because the server has broken down as too many people tried to access it.

END OF AN ERA! Tuomas say it's not the end of Nightwish though, they'll find a new singer. But I think it's the end of NW because there is no one like Tarja. :(

So, who was there last night?

I was! I did actually see some people from my f-list, but I guess they didn't have a clue who I was or didn't see me.

And did anyone see the girl with fairy wings that had "Large Angel" written on them? Did you know that some people didn't even know what that was about. *sigh*

Anyway. What did you think? My opinion's a little odd and biased, as I was suffering from the worst of colds and my ears were all funny.

Crimson Tears [02 Sep 2005|11:13pm]

[ mood | good ]

Just got pointed to a British band called Crimson Tears by one of my friends and they are brilliant. They are like a cross between Nightwish and Sonata Arctica so to anyone who likes either of those bands I highly recommend that they check these guys out!

Their main website is here and their MySpace Music site is here. They seem to keep the MySpace one more frequently updated though.
