Middle Earth skirt. Made by me <3
Took me three months and how you see is hand embroidery, no printed :3
I hope take pictures with a full coordinate soon!
What I’d give for this to be green and gold… !
This is my favourite thing wow,
It’s back. One of my favourite posts.
So, BBT series six arrived yesterday, and one of the episodes Mum and I watched today featured Sheldon playing Words with Friends. I just opened the app to see her most recent move in our game - she cheated!
I just got my answers from last year’s 10Q and my advice to myself was to remember that Tumblr is my friend. For some reason, I ignored this advice only weeks after writing it.
Maybe coming back would be good for me!
Darren Hayes at Birmingham… my God, he is simply astounding. His voice filled the room and it was SO powerful!
His chatting between the songs was different, which pleased me greatly - I would’ve expected him to say the same things, and the fact that he didn’t make it even more awesome.
Also, I think his dancing for The Animal Song was even sexier this time :-P.
He got the lyrics for Cruel Cruel World completely muddled up this time - and this is also something I love; it makes him seem so real…
Oh, and the music played in between The Candle Thieves and Darren was the same…So I am convinced that Darren made a mix CD for this section of the evening.
Shout out to the dude who gave us money for parking - your kindness shall not be forgotten!
Will have the spare Darren Hayes ticket with me tomorrow, if anyone is interested… Dear followers, even if you haven’t heard of him, if you live near Birmingham you should totally go. He is AMAZING.
Glad to be of use! I hope you have a wonderful time wherever you’re going :).
I can’t guarantee that times will be the same everywhere - Glasgow was different, I believe - but Darren’s performance was an hour and a half. The Candle Thieves were on at eight until half past (and I recommend watching them; they were brill), then Darren was on from nine until half ten. Be early if you want to buy stuff though, the merch queue was huuuge!
Tonight has been one of the most amazing nights ever!
I didn’t tell my brother what was happening until we got there because it was a birthday surprise, and he was pretty excited.
Chatted to a lovely girl and her mum in the merchandise queue (I bet she had tumblr, she called people peasants - hey pretty girl with the cool hat, if you see this then message me!), which was dead nice and helped time pass.
Bought t-shirts - which are awesome, especially for my brother, given that Darren’s alter-ego dude features in the Secret Mistake video and that’s his favourite video, and the lyrics are from Pop!ular which is his favourite song, and I got a bag and a tour book as well - which has lots of stunning photos; Darren is such a beautiful man!
When we got to our seats, we were even happier because we had a fabulous view, we were exactly in the middle :).
Taylor Swift’s new song was played, followed by Call Me Maybe - it seems like Darren had some input in song choices!
The Candle Thieves were great: they were very funny, and I really like their music (I had heard some of their stuff before anyway, and they certainly didn’t disappoint live).
Darren’s entire performance was marvellous; his voice never fails to be amazing, and his acting during Hot Tub Blues was fantabulous. Also, he sang the wrong words in The Animal Song which was really adorable. And his dancing - particularly during that song - was just brilliant. I’ll run out of adjectives soon, but I’m not going for literary quality, I’m on a slight after-concert high and all my brain is thinking is asdfghjkl.
I tried to remember the set list, if anyone is interested, but I’m very forgetful and I don’t really remember what order things were in. The songs that are together in chunks were almost definitely next to each other though…I think.
God Walking Into the Room
To the Moon and Back
I Like the Way
Black Out the Sun
The Animal Song
Cruel Cruel World
Truly Madly Deeply
When Will I Be Famous?/Pop!ular
Hot Tub Blues
I Don’t Know You Any More
The Siren’s Call
So, there was an excellent range of everything, and it was all totally awesome. When the concert ended, my brother said it was better than Minecraft - and given that he spends most of his time on that game, that’s a compliment! He also said that it was the best birthday present ever but it had to be demoted to second best when Mum reminded him that he got a dog two years ago.
