  1. Seems you have a much better phone than me.
  2. The regular emojis on your phone or the MFC ones? Because I have the problem only with the special emojis on MFC. Same here and I also use Android (Samsung).
  3. I was just curious about the ticket prices as I didn't know the currency and I have to say it's really quite expensive (84 € for the ticket close to the stage and even more for VIP)...
  4. Tbh, I doubt the collab has anything to do with the third season of Elite but they just announced that the new season is going to be released on 13th March. So we will know for sure next month but I still think the collab is unrelated to that. I thought maybe it could be a song for Danna Paola's album but she apparently just released an reissue of her latest album so who knows what's this collab about...
  5. I also have troubles with emojis when I'm using MFC on my phone, that's why I prefer to post through PC and use my phone only for reading the thread or messages. But I can delete emojis even on my phone, the problem in my case is that the loading of the emojis is slow and sometimes it even gets stuck...
  6. I realized that Mika has control over my life whether I like it or not. Everytime I'm thinking "ok, enough of Mika for today", I go out and hear a Mika song in a shop or I turn on the radio and a Mika song is playing... It's just inevitable!
  7. I had the same thought recently! I was sad about missing the last show when I saw all these nostalgic posts on social media but at the same time, I felt that being sad about it is a good sign because it means that I would feel even worse if I wouldn't travel to any of the shows so it was all worth it!
  8. I get it and totally agree with you but I just wanted to point out that unfortunately, Mika/his team is not always the best in announcing and promoting things... I was quite confused some days ago when I realized that the tickets for his summer concerts in Italy were already available even though he didn't post anything on social media until the tickets already went on sale... Which is quite late if you still want to get good places. So I get it that sometimes, it's difficult to wait if you want to buy the tickets ASAP.
  9. 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:

  10. I have to say I haven't posted anything in this thread yet because in fact, I don't suffer from a Post Mika Depression after a gig. Actually the exact opposite, I have a Post Mika Mania. I knew that from gigs I experienced before Mika, I always keep the positive energy with me for a while but it never lasted as long and never was so strong like with him. I really feel happy, everything is brighter, I even smile more and I'm still in a good mood. It's like getting endorphins or being high, Mika just makes my life better (of course I'm not saying that drugs will make someone's life better, just for the record! ). However, that doesn't mean that sometimes I don't feel sad about missing all these fantastic gigs I can't go to. Like every "addict", right after getting my dose, I'm looking for the next one. When I know I'll get the next shot, it makes it a bit easier but still, I really feel every word @Dominika posted here a while ago: I know that nobody can attend every gig of the tour. And I feel so grateful I could see him twice. There are so many fans who haven't been able to go to a gig at all. But like every addict, I wish for more. And I also wish it would be easier to see him. I travelled 2 700 km in total to see him twice and even though it was definitely worth it, it would be great if I could just decide to go to a gig, buy a ticket and travel maybe just a few hours to be there instead of looking for a direct bus connection that is only 9 hours long, not 12 and more, looking for an accommodation near the venue I can afford etc. For a student, it's quite an expensive hobby. I'm already saving money for Summer, for my trip to Verona, but at the same time I wish I could have been in Strasbourg yesterday even though I know I just can't be everywhere. On the other hand, I kind of like the travelling aspect to be honest, I've never travelled for gigs before, I always just went to gigs in my city and now thanks to Mika, it's a brand new experience for me and it's quite an adventure. The whole journey becomes a part of the concert experience. So I'm glad Mika encouraged me to travel more. However, you never get enough and my bank account isn't bottomless so I never stop dreaming of a gig near (= let's say less than 500 km ) me to see him again.
  11. 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.

  12. That's really funny because I was just thinking yesterday that if I'm going to stay 3 whole days in Verona, I'd love to visit Lago di Garda! I also found the train connection.
  13. I was just listening to TBWKTM yesterday because I never get enough of Rain and also Blame It On The Girls. And I See You. And Pick Up Off The Floor. So many underrated songs on this album I'd love to hear live!
  14. I made a second collage from pictures I took, for my shelfs... :biggrin2:

  15. Yes, I've been to Verona before but just for 3 hours maybe so I think there are still many spots I haven't seen yet.
  16. Tonight I had kind of a dream about Mika. Or actually about his dog. I think it's because yesterday I saw two golden dogs and immediately thought about Amira and Melachi (and also the fact that I always pay more attention to dogs than to people when I'm somewhere). So I dreamt that I got to cuddle one of his dogs. Even in the dream I was wondering if it's Amira or Melachi because I couldn't tell. But she was super sweet and snuggling. Later I got the chance to say thank you to Mika (I guess for cuddling his dog). But I think he was just passing by and there were more people waiting so I didn't really talk to him. Since it was a dream, it's all really blurry in my memory. However, this is the first time I remember a dream about Mika, besides some short dreams about being on or going to a show.
  17. I actually also made a reservation for a single room but it's not binding yet, I still can change or cancel it... So I'm open to any suggestions. I'm just thinking of staying a bit longer, maybe a day before and a day after the concert because it's quite a long way so I don't want to travel so far just for the day of the gig. On the other hand, as I'll probably travel alone, I don't know if it won't get quite lonely for me to be 4 nights in the city... So still not sure how long I'll stay but I definitely need an accomodation for the night before and after the concert.
  18. I'm just at the mall wearing my Revelation Tour bag when I hear a familiar voice... Ice Cream was played at Zara! I had to enter the baby department because I was in the second floor.
  19. I'll probably travel alone too, from Prague, which is actually a similar distance, I just have to cross some countries... 😄 Also glad to see so many MFCers on the list! 😁 Btw, I know is early but as the concert is during the holiday season, I was already looking for accomodation possibilities and since it looks like there'll be more people travelling, if anybody is interested in sharing an apartment/room, please, let me know. 😊
  20. I think that could be indeed the reason because when this happens to me with my phone I only hear the music but not the voice... And it's only because the headphones aren't connected properly.
  21. Since the price difference wasn't as big (with the exception of the cheapest ones but I read that those places are pretty bad) I bought a ticket right in front of the podium.
  22. There are already some new dates in Italy in August and I think there'll be some more dates in France too but hopefully also London and some other countries... But I bought a ticket for Verona anyway.
  23. I still hope that when the tour ends in November there will be some new dates in Europe in autumn including the one in London he mentioned before...
  24. Also maybe there are more ballads or mid-tempo songs on this album which aren't so suitable for the big show as he is already singing Underwater and Blue/Paloma?
