Of course I don't mind you asking, this is stuff I'm very glad to talk about. I'm going as an exchange student and stay for the academic year 2012-2013. I'll be in Cork, studying in Cork School of Music. I'm so excited to go! Studying abroad is something I have dreamt of every now and then, but until now I think I haven't been brave enough or just not ready. I'm still not sure if I'm ready, but I'm definitely going to try and find out. I've been to Ireland once, on a holiday, and I really liked the country and culture, but I only visited Dublin and county Galway then. I guess Cork will be a bit different. Right now I'm a little worried though, cause they were supposed to send me some papers, which they still haven't done... But that can go to the rants section or something. thats so cool, that school has got a really good reputation as well, i know a few people who are studying there and one of my real good friends from school will be starting to study there as well beginning 2012 so if you're ever looking for some people to hang out with let me know (not that i'm saying you won't have people to hang out with i'm sure you'll manage haha) hmm i've only ever been to cork a few times briefly cause i live on the other side of the country but it does have a really nice centre city, its built on a river and everything but i do hope it works out for you regarding the papers and everything i'm sure it'll be grand

The production definitely enhances her vocal. If you watch her live performances her voice isn't that elastic and pure. Or maybe it is and she just hasn't figured out how to sing live. i don't think there's anything wrong with her voice live, the only time i feel that she underperforms is when she's nervous usually during tv shows or whatever. if you look at videos where she is just performing small intimate venues i think she's grand. regarding the production, i don't know, i think it makes her sound electronic kinda. i would prefer a more raw tone compared to an elastic and pure tone anyway though.

    quote: Originally posted by Emmerrrrrrr: Pleasure by Camille. I listened to Camille's latest album from start to finish for the first time a few days ago. This song somehow reminds me of Regina's early work. In a good way. isn't her new album incredible? especially her vocals on her live performances recently, love this version of "she was" especially the ending.

    quote: Originally posted by rainna: Life's good, mostly! It contains a lot of studying, which I like very much (well, most of the time!). It has been a bit lonely, living in another town, away from friends and family, but the independence has its upsides too. Right now I am dreaming of something to happen, something exciting and new... Life has become a little too routine! How about you? why have you gone to university now? and yes i know what you mean and its worse when your extremely aware of how routine-like it is. hope it works out for you. yeah i'm grand still in highschool/secondary so it's now too life-changing or anything, just going through the motions. and HEY cheyenne. glad to see you back to obvs. so nice to be posting again haha.

  19. PROP 8 OVERRULED!

    quote: Originally posted by Be like the water, people.: Later, in verses 32 and 33, it says those who practice these things are worthy of death. "These things" refers to many sins, including gay sex, greed, envy, murder, and gossip. In other words, gay sex is a sin, just like any other "black and white" sin. this is what i don't get. putting gay sex in the same league as murder, envy and greed? it's ridiculous. to me it seems like just someone who was contributing to this section of the bible wasn't fond of gay men having sex and wanted to spread this to the people cause he knew he had the power to do so and decided to exaggerate his homophobia so much and put it into the same league of sins such as murder and envy just to make it easier for the people to understand and to see where he is "coming from". and all of a sudden gay sex is an abomination cause the bible says so....oh wait no sorry it was just some priest who was homophobic enough and selfish enough to use his power to manipulate people. this isn't god's words, this is some guy who wrote this particular verse in the bible words. god doesn't take sides.
