  1. Ok, so I'll start with some of my favourite artists besides (and far behind ) Mika. In no particular order: Rosalía (favourite album: El mal querer, even won a Grammy for that album this year) Lorde (favourite album: Melodrama) Janelle Monáe (favourite album: Dirty Computer) Troye Sivan (favourite album: Bloom) Sigrid (just released a few EPs and a debut album so far so I actually like all of it...) Carly Rae Jepsen (favourite album: Emotion, but I like Dedicated as well) Alice Merton (also released just one EP and a debut album so far...) And recently I've listened a lot to the EP La vita nuova by Christine and the Queens:
  2. Even though it's a bit sad, it's also very rare to see Prague without tourists so I kind of appreciate some of these pictures... https://www.seznamzpravy.cz/clanek/par-minut-do-karanteny-cele-zeme-tak-to-vypadalo-v-centru-prahy-93271?seq-no=1&dop-ab-variant=&source=clanky-home

      @Lilyen Tbh, probably even more, most of the time it's overcrowded...

  3. As the schools are closed in many countries, let's begin with a lesson of geography... :biggrin2:

    (it's quite old so it's not really up-to-date anymore but I think it's still really catchy...)

      @Anna Ko Kolkowska I have to say I still like the cartoon version better, he is even dancing... :lmfao:

      Btw, I also noticed that some countries in the Central Asia are missing like Kazakhstan, I guess they were still part of Russia back then so also don't forget about these, kids! :naughty:

      You want to dance? Here you can dance learning how to make a Trucker's Hitch

  4. Ich hab auf Instagram gesehen, dass sie in Italien in einem Supermarkt Streifen aus Klebeband auf dem Boden haben, damit die Leute Abstand halten... Und angeblich darf man auch keine Schlange stehen, man muss warten, bis es an der Kasse frei ist damit sich nicht mehrere Leute zur Kasse anstellen. Also ich glaube es kann durchaus stimmen. So sieht es aus:
  5. Ich lese gern ab und zu dystopische Bücher aber jetzt hab ich das Gefühl, in einer Dystopie mittendrin zu sein und es fühlt sich echt wie ein Albtraum an... Noch vor kurzer Zeit könnte ich zur Uni, zur Arbeit, auf ein Konzert oder in die Bibliothek gehen, ausreisen usw. Jetzt darf ich nichts davon. Und ich will nur das es endlich aufhört, obwohl ich weiß, dass das nur der Anfang ist...
  6. I think the right translation is "a small country located to the east (?) of Germany" (em um hotel de Luxemburgo, um pequeno país localizado ao leste da Alemanha) but it still doesn't make sense but I found "leste" really means east in Portuguese...
  7. Some people say the warm weather will help and it won't be a problem anymore by summer, some people say it can last months or even a year what I've heard... It's so messed up that I don't know what to think anymore. I just hope it gets better soon...
  8. Today I had a dream. I got an email from a concert promoter with a link. And on the website I found out that there will be a concert of Mika in my country. But the weird thing was that the concert wasn't in Prague but in Pardubice... Which is strange because even though it's one of the bigger cities here (the 10th biggest apparently), it's still quite small for such a concert. And there's no music festival and I've actually never been there. So I guess this dream won't come true... :naughty: But it was a nice feeling for a moment.

      hm, I would be happy for a concert in Szeged... hmhm ❤️ nice dream!

  9. I can't see this book without hearing Mika sing... :fisch:

      Haha I know, it was meant ironically :naughty:

      @Starlight Oh sorry, sometimes it's hard to recognize irony online... :facepalm::doh:

      @giraffeandy no problem :hug: it's really hard without hearing the voice of someone. :wink2:

  10. Thinking of all the Italian fans here. I don't know how many of you live in or near the affected area but as long as it's possible, try to stay high not low... Hope you and your families are safe! Wish you health. :pray: Of course that applies to everybody who lives in a country that is affected (at this point I think most of us do...).

      Of course it's terrible for all Italians and my thoughts are with them... :pray:

      But if this helps to stop the spreading...

  11. I'm considering this gig but as the ticket price is quite high (it's almost the same as I paid for the most expensive ticket in Verona...), I'll wait if there won't be any other new dates in June.
  12. My DIY project for today... Familiar colours, don't you think? :teehee:

      I used the colours from the Revelation tour rainbow...

  13. Me too, but only a few weeks ago I didn't expect it will affect Europe as much... I couldn't imagine that travelling to Italy will become risky. So now I'm a bit more careful with my thoughts about it because I've been naive at the beginning, I was really too optimistic.
  14. Looks really interesting, I'm just a little bit worried about this... I've heard that for some concerts that have been postponed in Zürich you don't get the money back even if you want to... You have to wait for the rescheduling. It's such a mess right now, I really hope the situation will be different in 3 months but I'm afraid of making some travel plans now because you don't know what can happen.
  15. I tried to ask a girl I know who lives in Verona with her Italian boyfriend, she didn't know right away but promised to ask him as he is directly from Verona and knows the city pretty well... Today she answered me that unfortunately as the city center is all very historic, there aren't many suitable places near the center and only send me a site with places you can rent for meetings: https://www.meetingecongressi.com/it/struttura/verona/245/palazzo_verita_-_poeta.htm?fbclid=IwAR2KRbhBKKdW7kID-0FEnjn4wNnNVRUxq1iabfr4SmFSV31I64rSu56ut-A So I guess that's not really helpful as those places seem to be quite expensive. But she said that the more ordinary places are far away from the center. I don't know if that's an option.
  16. Oh, I see, the physical copies will be released in April... I think I'll buy a CD later when it's available.
  17. Where did you get a copy? I thought it's only digital... And when I saw the music video I was also thinking of Mika's EP project and if he is doing something similar.
  18. Two weeks ago, I was quite sad that the European leg of the tour is ending but now I think it ended just at the right time... Artists are already postponing their tours even in Europe. Some dates of the European tour wouldn't be possible right now so now I'm even more grateful for what we had and looking forward to the summer events.

  19. He misspelled Freddie Mercury... But a great review otherwise, especially from someone who wasn't a die-hard fan before the show!
  20. Bad news: There's a reconstruction in our house so there's a lot of noise lately (drilling etc.).

    Good news: Songs like Dear Jealousy, Sanremo, Tomorrow or Platform Ballerinas sound really good when you play them really LOUD.

      @silver Because normally, I don't play the music so much loud because of the neighbours... But now it doesn't matter anyway. 

  21. @TinyLove_CJ @Starlight Unfortunately, I can relate to your stories too. I was bullied at school especially at the age of 9 to 11, then I changed the school to a grammar school and it got a little bit better, I mean I wasn't popular at all and some people still made fun of me but on the previous school it was even worse... I had one best friend who sometimes didn't want to hang up with me because as @TinyLove_CJ said, it made her less cool. Luckily, on the grammar school I got a best friend who was (and still is) very loyal so that made things a lot easier. I didn't know what was wrong with me back then, I guess I was rather shy so I was an easy target. I kept thinking for years that it's my fault that I can't get along with people. It took me a long time to get over it and I'm still dealing with some consequences. But leaving school and start studying helped a lot, the people are much better at the university. After years I feel confident again. But I still have trust issues when meeting new people and I need a lot of time to become friends with someone. I really appreciate how often Mika speaks about being bullied. I know it's something you don't want to speak about, you don't want to remember or even think about it but is very helpful when you see a grown-up man sharing his story. Of course also many of his songs are thematizing this struggle. Especially the song Hurts helped me a lot to leave that period behind me, it came at the right time when my life was changing for better and I needed this song to deal with the past and move on.
