  1. So glad that at least the show in Paris was filmed for TV so we have something to come back to now when the big show is apparently over... I watched it yesterday and it helped me a lot with being a bit sad about missing the last show. Social media is nice but sometimes it can hurt. :lmfao: I especially loved Paloma, I have to say it's not my favourite song on the setlist, but in Paris it seemed to be one of the best moments. Thank you again @carafon for sending me the link! :hug:

      Ohhh I don't have a dropbox :sad: but could you send me the link? I will check how does it open or if it'll open

      @Dominika I'll send it to you, a basic Dropbox account is free anyway... :winksmiley02:

      Could I have the link too please? 😮

  2. I don't know if MFC is the right place for it but since I can't discuss this on social media or irl, I thought I could try it here... What would you do, if someone really close to you express themselves in a slightly homophobic way? Would you try to convince him/her otherwise? Would you just ignore it and avoid this topic in conversations? Or would you even stop meeting such a person ? 

     

    The thing is, I have a best friend I know for ages, she is the closest person I have in my life besides my family. But it really bothers me when she speaks about someone being gay as it would be a bad/not normal thing. I tried to explain it to her but I think it's not so easy to change her mind about it. She tolerates people being gay but she doesn't approve it if you know what I mean. And I really hate it but at the same time, I know she is not a bad person and it's really hard for me because she is like my sister. It's a similar feeling like when someone in your family says something you don't agree with but at the same time you don't want to argue about it because those people are so close to you but it still bothers you a lot. I hope it makes sense. What do you think about it?

      @Irem Aytepe I guess I have to accept it and hope she changes her mind someday... Of course I won't stop pointing out what I think about it.

      But thank you all for your support! It helps when I can express my feelings and thoughts about it somewhere where it's safe to do so.

      @giraffeandy I hope you'll find a good solution... it's really a problem for a close friendship..

  3. I made a second collage from pictures I took, for my shelfs... :biggrin2:

  5. An hour ago I arrived to Bolzano, I took the bus, found the hotel, checked in, found the venue and now I'm already 15 minutes queueing... I feel more sucessful and powerful than ever. :glasses3:

      @Mikasister Thank you, I wasn't sure if travelling alone is a good idea but now I'm glad I did it... 🙂

      How was the show?

    4. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      @Mikasister Great, finally I got to see the big show with the stage even though I have to say in Zürich the setlist was better and I also didn't understand most of the things he said in Italian yesterday but the show was definitely worth it and I had a great view again so I'm really glad I went! 

  6. Practicing my hand lettering on Mika's lyrics... :teehee:

      Wow it's amazing. I love that type font! :mika1:

  7. Just wanna say I love the live album, it's really good and feels almost like being on a Mika gig... :dance_man: Already downloaded it on Spotify so I can listen to it on my way to Bolzano on Sunday... I'll have a lot of time during my 9 hour trip with the bus. :naughty:

    1. Irem Aytepe

      Irem Aytepe

      I love the live too! I listen all day!

  8. Good news, I found a hotel room near the venue for a quite reasonable price so I'm going last minute to Bolzano! :excite: PS: Only the hotel is probably assuming I'm a man because they keep addressing me Mr. in e-mails (I asked them a question regarding the check-in time), probably because Andrea is a boy name in Italy. :naughty:

      Have fun! :cheer:

  9. I just got a mail from MFC I could get one ticket for the concert in Bolzano (I entered the competition before and didn't win but apparently there is still one ticket left) and now I don't know what to do as I already had to give up the accomodation and there's a bus arriving at 6pm and leaving at 0:20 but I'm afraid that's too risky and I would spend more time on the bus than in Bolzano... I guess I have to give up the chance even though I'd like to go. :emot-sad: I wish it would be different.

    1. silver

      silver

      Take a chance and go! 

    2. Mikasister

      Mikasister

      Try it!!

      Don't you have even the slightest possibility? And if it can't be Bolzano, can you try another place? There are still gigs until February in Europe.
       

       

  10. I love this song (even though the story is a bit crazy :teehee:)...

     

     

  11. When you are trying to study for tomorrow's exam but Mika is everywhere...

      I have the same situation as you. Asked my friend and cousins but noone is avaliable. I was thinking about Bari, perchance Padova. :emot-sad:

    3. giraffeandy

      giraffeandy

      I still hope there will be more dates but all the new dates are even more far away. I'm afraid there won't be any dates nearby anymore so this is maybe the last chance to see him again this tour and I don't know what to do... :sad:

    4. Dominika

      Dominika

      I have the same feeling but hoping for the London special gig as he mentioned but it can be Mika soon or for the end of the whole tour :dunno:

  13. Has anybody of you seen the series YOU? Because I'm just watching season 1 and I don't know if it's just me but the main actor reminds me of Mika a bit... :naughty: I mean not all the time but there's something about his facial expressions and also maybe his eyes that makes him look a bit similar sometimes. Maybe that's the reason why I may have a crush on the main character even though he is a crazy psychopat and stalker... :lmfao:

      Irem Aytepe

      Hehehe I understood what you talking about :naughty:

      I watched 3 episode and half and I gived up

      but in 2nd episode last part just like 

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAĞ

      Okay now I finished the second season and it was crazy... :yikes: Like even more than the first one. :jawdrop: But not sure if I want the third season (there will be one, it's already been confirmed), I think enough is enough. However, I watched this season in 2 days, so... :shocked:

  14. Today I've been with my best friend in our favourite café (it's mainly a gelateria but this time we had waffles :drool:). They always have an Italian radio on, probably streaming it online. We've been talking and I didn't pay as much attention to the music but suddenly I heard Tomorrow! It made me so happy and I couldn't listen to my poor best friend telling me a story because of Mika singing in the background... :teehee:

      @Mikasister But I felt so bad for her, she was telling me something and I had no idea what's going on because I was so distracted but I had to nod anyway even though I didn't understand what she was saying... :biggrin2:

      Mika hypnotizes us, it makes us feel that we are out of the world  :insane:

      I'm actually still not sure if I'm going as it would be quite expensive to stay alone in the apartment and I also haven't bought a ticket yet... I have 2 weeks to cancel the reservation, then I have to pay.

    4. Dominika

      Dominika

      I thought about it too and there would be no point for me to travel so many hours just for the gig :sad: but I have on my mind Bari tho. I already found qute cheap hotel for 2 and direct flight tickets :biggrin2:

  16. When you enter a shop just because of the music... 

     

  17. It's really hard not to see Mika everywhere... :lmfao:

      You just need shoes that are really comfortable (and that you can dance in :naughty: )

  24. Tonight I had a dream that Mika announced some new tour dates and he was coming to my city... I was so excited. :mf_rosetinted:

      I completely get it! I got a couple of friends from Czech Rep. who would love to see him again there, so I'll have my fingers crossed for all of you until he makes the announcement (which I really hope will happen!) 

    3. Paoletta

      Paoletta

      yes also me had a dream with Mika before he annunced tour in my city et voilà he come in Turin :mf_rosetinted:

  25. The title Jealousy makes me think about this song, it's my favourite song from her, I hope that I'll enjoy Mika's song at least as much as this one... But I guess it will be more up-beat because Mika described the next single as melodic and catchy.
