sooooo, how amazing was mtv world stage?

P1000404

 

P1000405fooding at international pancake house, where neither of us ate pancakes. my kiasuness ensured that we had plenty of time to spare.

P1000408in line. we were extremo sneaky with the bag am quite proud we managed to pull it off.

P1000426estranged.
they were not bad, neither were they awesome. they didn’t really do anything for the crowd, who by this time, was completely restless with all the waiting.

P1000465boys like girls. was. awesome. endofstory.

P1000478during ‘thunder’, i stopped snapping pictures, and along with everyone else, raised my arms and sang along. it was the most amazing feeling. and i have always loved that song. always. it brings back so many memories.

P1000483‘throw it away
 forget yesterday
 we’ll make the great escape
 we won’t hear a word they say
 they don’t know us anyway

i’m not putting up any pictures of raygun, because all the ones i have wouldn’t do them justice =(
they were brilliant, though. i totally did not see it coming. if you’ve seen their music video for ‘just because you can’, you’d think they were vaguely annoying musicians.
they are not.
they are entertaining, and talented. one of the few musicians that are better live. without a doubt, they were the best performance of the night.

P1000527hoobastank was not bad. actually, i’m even going to to go so far as to say that they were really, really good. doug was so awesomely cool; his face, his expressions. and then of course, they had the whole crowd singing the ghostbusters song, which i approve of, because acts of randomness like this make me happy.
when they launched into ‘the reason’, i remembered all the reasons i loved them. again, the songs has so many memories tied to it.

P1000581the rejects were brilliant. i don’t know how to better describe it.

P1000583tyson ritter has so much energy, it blows my mind. he kinda reminds me of a hyperactive monkey on crack, but you know, a cute one.
they sang ‘it ends tonight’ and i was completely contented. i LOVE that song. LOVE. LOVE LOVE LOVE. i’m going to stop saying love.

P1000603the crowd thinned considerably for kasabian, probably because they’re not very popular in malaysia (some people would beg to differ, but it’s true) those who stayed though, were pretty hardcore moshers.
i’m not overly familiar with them, but i do know and love ‘shoot the runner’, which they performed.

P1000616the crowd of purpotedly 15000.

quite frankly, i don’t know how we lasted. it’s one of those things you go through, and then you think back, and you wonder ‘holy hell. how?’ (alliteration!)

we were so dead by the end of it all, it wasn’t funny. 9 hours of standing, with roughly 5 hours of jumping around, screaming and dancing thrown in.

thank god for youth.
