start smoking cigarettes again, enjoy another bottle of Beluga wodka and hide in a hot bath.

I saw this band in paradiso, Amsterdam back in 2003. Paradiso is the most famous concert hall in the Netherlands and was previously a church. A friend of mine convinced me to come along and this was one of those 'goosebump' concerts. They were impressive.

I think earthie you might like this!

It's interesting is an English phrase I have learned to decipher as meaning ' Man that was crap' ..Laughing

I use the term interesting, drawn out, when I'm not sure what to say but don't want to hurt someones feelings just because I don't understand the form of art or whatever that they're presenting. Or if I'm not actually interested in it.

As a non-native speaker I was always taught that the English usage of the term interesting is often misleading. If during negotiations your counterpart will respond to a proposal with the phrase 'interesting'...9 out of 10 he means no fucking way this will ever happen..Laughing

That's a very business-world interpretation (and in the business world that's very correct). In the art world, sometimes things require some getting used to. There are a couple albums I used to really dislike, but upon repeated listening, I grew to appreciate them in an unexpected way. So "interesting" might just mean "I don't know what to think yet".

Sometimes songs needs to grown on you. I saw these guys performing three times, but every time I hear them play this song live I get goosebumps all over my body.

@Oliver: Since I use my English primarily in a business context I hope you will forgive me if I use a rather strict business world interpretation... tongue

As a native english speaker with an enjoyment of language I hope will forgive me if I occasionally correct your interpretation when the strict business world interpretation is off. Razz
