  1. Yeah, good point. I mean, we surely are better than the tabloid press, because even if we discuss everything and might not agree with everything he does, we love him anyway - and I think he knows that and trusts us with this. But you're right, we also analyze and judge all the time (what else should we fill this forum and social media with? ), so I hope whatever he does is his choice and not to please us or the press or anyone but himself.
  2. I hadn't noticed, but now that you say it... well, tbh I didn't even know something like make up pigments for the hairline existed. I'm sure there's pressure to look a certain way, don't know if it's because of TV or rather Mika's own requirements to himself, probably a mixture of both. I mean, take his hair, he clearly had something done to that since the 2015 tour. And I don't think that was because of TV, he can hide it there. I remember he wrote in this letter to his 70 year old self on his 30th birthday "if you go bald, wear a hat.", so apparently this was important to him. Anyway th
  3. have you tried to put them back in your signature? I've had a look at your signature, also the code, and I can see no photo links there, apart from the smileys. Deb ran an update the other day, but it shouldn't have changed anything about the signature pics.
  4. Yes, that's the site I used as well. It worked fine for Verona, but when I tried to enter the voucher code for the Taormina ticket I had bought for a friend, I got the same problem. I sent the voucher to my friend then, so I don't know any more than you, sorry. You still have until October 18, so hopefully they'll answer until then.
  5. I actually first thought it was some comment that had just been posted and youtube was showing it in the video for some reason. When watching it for the 2nd time I didn't notice it, guess I was distracted that moment. When I read the report here in the first post, I believed that it was by Andy, shame it isn't... tho who knows - tbh I believe more that this was on purpose than that the open zipper during Ice Cream was accidental. And that gets me to my report about the gig. I liked the start with Origin. Happy Ending made me cry for the first time, really beautiful. AOW was aweso
  6. On IG it's possible to win tickets for this show: But be aware that we still don't have official confirmation by Mika or his team that he'll be there. Given the current infection situation in France, tbh I doubt he'll be there live. Maybe they'll show a song or two from his Beirut gig for this occasion?
  7. Ok, dead squirrel with a bird's head. Nah really, I think it looks like a mix between parrot, platypus and squirrel. But I suppose the dogs don't care about such details. Btw Mika has reposted a story by Jack Savoretti about the 1 year anniversary of Youth & Love.
  8. As they write 2 times in that article that Opel is a German brand (tho actually it belongs to the same French corporation as Peugeot since 2017), of course that'd be nice if they showed the spot here as well... but I won't hold my breath for it. Maybe in France. To me, Opel is still a quite boring and old-fashioned brand, but it seems they're trying to move forward and invest a lot into e-mobility. I like that much better than what all the big German car brands like BMW or Mercedes do, who produce electric cars only as a niche product and complain as soon as politicians want to ta
  9. IG story by chiaraeilcuoreovunque What does this "dage" mean?
  10. I only understood parts of the Maritima interview, but I think that was quite an interesting interview - @Subtitling Team I'd love a translation please. It was a phone interview, sounded like he was in the car. They talked about the pandemic a lot, about Coeur Holiday and the Beirut gig - tho from the things I understood I can't tell for sure whether the interview was recorded before the gig or if it was indeed live (or recorded this week). I didn't hear any talk about the reception of the gig (maybe I just missed it). At the beginning Mika talked about the Coeur Holida
  11. Gabry had posted the link to the replay on their website, but good to have the youtube video here as well, thanks!

  13. That's fab! Finally they react to requests, after months of doing nothing.
  14. Dunno about ticketmaster, but the ticketone vouchers aren't issued on a name. You just have to enter the e-mail-address the voucher was sent to along with the voucher number, to validate it. Zlata was able to fill in the form, using her name & bank data and the voucher number from the e-mail that was sent to me.
  15. For now it is only available on French Video-on-Demand channels, as Mika wrote here: We're hoping that he will make it available to everyone via DVD or some other way, but so far there's no news about this.
  16. IBAN ist just within the EU. @Mousetrap if you don't find another way to get your money back, DM me if you want... I could have the money sent to me and then transfer it to you via paypal.
  17. Mika posted 2 stories, the first one's a repost from Xfactor, and this is the 2nd one. I think it says they first met today 8 years ago? How sweet of him is that to post about such an anniversary?!
  18. Apparently Mika is doing some more promo: This Thursday 24.9. from 11:00 on Maritima Radio: 28.9., 9:00 on champagne.fm
  19. I was thinking the same, especially with all those guests... but he wrote that the stats & views look amazing - so maybe the counter on YT was wrong? He wrote more news to come, so I hope he'll let us know eventually. Still, 50,000 views is half a million €, that's not too bad.
  20. Mika and his team created something very beautiful and unique with this gig. There was lots of emotions, I cried several times, and what it did was to make me feel connected with the city of Beirut and its people. What I had hoped it would do was to make me feel connected with Mika and the "crowd" like at a real gig, that's how I had understood what he had said before about this "connection of spirit". But to me this didn't happen, maybe because I had the wrong expectations. I only realized this when I watched for the 2nd time in the Asian timezone. The first time I watched, I was sad for 90%
  21. Mika chatted a bit with a fan on Twitter. It started by him RTing this: Then he commented here - I think it refers to some of Mika's vocabulary inventions on Xfactor, but no idea what they're actually talking about, can anyone clear it up? In another thread the guy asked Mika (in Italian) to invite him for dinner, and Mika, switching to English, answered: continued: and: Lol, I love this, can he do things like that more often please?

  23. I've deleted the video links here @Starlight. Please don't share such links here (or anywhere, really), it might not be a DVD (yet), but we should treat it like one, because obviously they're still collecting funds for Beirut with it (via French VOD). And who knows what other plans they have with it. It's a very special video, one that Mika, his team and many others put a lot of work and heart in, and although *we* might buy everything he releases, there's enough people on the internet who wouldn't. So I find it sad that there's so many videos of the gig circulating on the web, and
