  1. I turned up the radio but as usual didn't really enjoy the music there so I was listening to Sinfonia Pop the whole evening... :wub2: When both CDs were over, I was going to turn off the CD player but before that I decided to switch to the radio first. And guess what song I've heard:

      This is the way you left me,
      I'm not pretending,
      No hope, no love, no glory,
      No happy ending :serenade: i love this song...

  2. Update on my project: It's not done yet, I want it a bit thicker, but it's going quite well so far... My original idea was to use the quote "I live for glitter not you" but then I thought it's a bit too long and complicated. :biggrin2: So I've chosen Love Today.

  3. Please wish me luck with my new creative project, I've never done this before. :lmfao: Today I've finally received my hot fix applicator which I've ordered weeks ago and bought a new grey jersey and some hot fix stones and crystals. I want to do some Mika-related design, probably some quote, I hope it will work... It's the perfect project for my exam time. :biggrin2:AirBrush_20190109181126.thumb.jpg.f5ead46711ab40cc25e06d062f6d8352.jpg

      Thank you so much for your support, you are the best! :group_hug:

       

      @Anna Ko Kolkowska Of course I will create the design first without using the applicator to see how it looks like. :wink2:

  4. I've been following this YT channel for a while now and this video made me laugh, the guy paid people to make a song for his dog, it's really funny... :lmfao:

     

  5. I've found Songs for Sorrow on ebay.de "just" for 40 €, but the seller doesn't have any reviews and he/she is selling only this one item, so I'm not sure if it's trustful enough... But I thought it's an interesting price for the EP.

      I bought last year from one MFCer who was selling her collection but it cost more, there were autographs in it.

    3. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      With autographs it has more value.

      I saw one sealed on ebay recently for £25 but it had a reserve price and it wasn't met so it didn't sell.

  6. Maybe I'm just tired but today I listened to the song Girls and I got this idea... I know I'm crazy. :lmfao:

  8. I've bought this month a new phone (after 8 years so it was quite needed) and already changed the background several times but I think I will keep this at least for a while... :biggrin2:

  9. Today I accidentally found Mika on two playlists Spotify recommended to me – Cheesy Hits! and Guilty Pleasures... I'm not sure if I should feel happy about it. Mika is a proud pleasure! :biggrin2:

  10. I used to be a really big fan of her and I still like her, especially her older music, but the new song is so good... It's about her illness (she had Lyme disease in the past years) and it almost made me cry, it's so emotional.

      @Lilyen :lmfao: Skater Boy was my favourite song when I was like 11, we used to sing it with my best friend all the time. And a few days ago I heard My Happy Ending on the radio and realized I still know all the lyrics, such a great song. 

    4. Lilyen

      Lilyen

      yes!! Nostalgy of my teenager-years.......:punk::glasses2::lmfao:

  11. I would even rather collect all editions of Mika's new album but pens are better than nothing... :lmfao:

    I finally got my boxes yesterday, they are even nicer live than on all the photos I've seen before. :wub:

  14. I'm in shock because of the bridge in Genova, me and my family used that bridge several times when we spent our summer in Liguria, our favourite region in Italy, the last time only a month ago... My mother always said the bridge is ugly and was afraid of passing it. I can't believe what happened... :shocked:

      I almost cried seeing the pictures, it really hits me hard... :emot-sad: It's always a tragedy but it affects you even more when you know the place where it happened.

  15. Do you remember all those articles from this year, where the journalists wrote Mika is 38? It seems that according to Google 29 is the new 38 because now if you google "Mika" or "Mika's birthday", you get the date and place of birth of a guy named Micael Borges who also use the nickname Mika... :lmfao:

      i just reported issue this to google yesterday. it's SO annoying! that other guy needs to stop using Mika's name :annoyed_h4h:

      @kreacher Yes, I agree, I mean, maybe it's his nickname in real life too, but he must know that there's already another famous singer using the name Mika, he could at least write himself as Mica or come up with something else, it's better to have an original brand name... I hope he doesn't want to take advantage of the name, some people can easily get confused because of it.

  16. Just a little story... Today I went to a concert which was a part of Prague Pride. At the very beginning before the first performance they started to play Grace Kelly. I know, it's the most basic Mika song, but I was so happy to hear it. However, after the first seconds I realized it's a cover! It was so weird to hear Grace Kelly without Mika's voice. It was so disappointing... :no:

      @Maria :) It's also really rare here to hear another song than GK or Relax. This was in a clothing store too. I walked by it and I had to stop and listen to the end of the song. :lmfao: And I also found Mika's Pilot Pens at the supermarket. It's nice to "see" and hear Mika while shopping... :wub2:

  17. Those little joys like watching a part of Mika's performance of Relax from last night and just after that spontaneously turning on the radio and hearing the first notes of Relax playing there... :wub: (I know it's not a big thing to hear Relax on the radio but in that moment it felt just magical. ❤️)

      Same in Spain. I only listen on the radio GK, Relax or LYL as it was a song for a spanish beer. Really sad. It seems he didnt evolve since GK. He always will be known as the GK or Relax guy. :winksmiley02:

  19. Maybe it's just me because nearly everything reminds me of something Mika-related but when I saw the dancers I just had to think about Blame It on the Girls for some reason... :lmfao:

    I think he did a pretty good job!

      I like this version but I agree with your answers girls :wink2:

  22. Just a random story – I watched a video on YT called "Artists you may have forgotten about" where Mika was mentioned. Somebody commented on it, that Mika isn't forgotten because there's this commercial with that guy changing colourful costumes along with the car which pretty sure features a Mika song... :lmfao:

      All they care about are people who break in US, anyway, when we see what MIKA was doing over the last years even if it's not about making new music he's a genius and an unforgateble talent who manages to renewable himself, he would like to be famous world while but it's about the big machine, female singers who appear every few years and so on.

       

       

      I do think that MIKA succeeded to manage his career very well, 

       

       

      one of the amazing singers performers, Adam lambert, he's also in my opinion extremely underrated, so he's limiting his career touring with queen and as judge in australia

      oops sorry, i stumbled in here accidentally 😳 Yeah he has lots of fans in other countries, but i worry a lot of them are stuck in the LICM days & never even hear he's put out new records. btw Mika actually did kinda write Happy Ending about homeless people. he explained it in a video i saw ages ago but now i forget which it was.

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @kreacher I wasn't sure about that because on the radio station it sounds as if he would write it in LA as he was recording the album but I thought the song was older than that and they sometimes say untrue information in that show, a few days later they say Avril Lavigne released her debut album when she was 22 (she was 17) etc. But thank you for the clarification. :original:

      @Dominika I really enjoyed the summerish atmosphere, the beautiful locations, the piano music in the background and in general the artistic, old-fashioned way it was made. Unfortunately it didn't hit me emotionally and it seemed a bit too long by the end... But overall a nice film, I liked it.

      I watched that movie, first I was enthusiastic cause it seems to be a catchy story, but I don't know how I didn't really like it:dunno: I felt there is a lot of moments of silence, and the story is too slow so I really get bored:doh:

      I actually have to agree with you, it was a bit too long but the idea of the story was nice :wink2:
