I was just thinking, while watching the pieces of Nightwish and HIM, that I'd like to see Bitterseet.
And you read my mind!

The Rasmus and Funeral Song is also breathtaking!!!!

SusuPetal said...

Oh, forgot! Your collage is very punk!

Bittersweet Brittney~defying beauty with angst and rebellion...
{I cant get the video to play again~it must be my computer?}

Bittersweet are the memories,
bittersweet are the tears.
Bittersweet she remembers,
bittersweet she still cares....

{well, it wasn't a truly positive word....but, I went with the blogs theme....}

yawn....

stretch...

good morning, I mean good evening...I am awake now, kirsi!

I love this collage...the contrast is lovely. I like how the background blends into white as does the figure.

And the video is beautiful..so mysterious, romantic, magical...song and lyrics are sad with longing and desire for another.

Oh my sweet sister...so happy to see you...

Susu, this isn’t the first time I read your mind…only shows that we think at least occasionally similar…and it’s so nice to have here an others Finnish…seems that recently you’ve been the only one…

Kelly and Banana

Bittersweet are my thoughts sometimes…longing and desire…indeed…it seems that this theme has been quite actual lately…

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

And Kelly...too bad you can’t open these videos, I specially think of you while choosing these...I think Finnish music fits for you very well...and not only music, you would like many things here...

Ana Banana said...

yes, I definitely think that Kelly would love these videos...a LOT! Kelly, maybe you should try going to youtube directly?

And, Kirsi, yes, I can see how the "bittersweet" theme is a part of your experience now. I think that is love, for the most part. The bitter -- the longing and desire -- is what makes the sweet so good. Without the longing, the sweet is dull.

I love your choice of video...music and lyrics. really poignant in a romantic way.

I'm going to go to YouTube to see if I can get it to play there...
One of my brothers is a big HIM fan, I never really listened to him until my visit to Pa. It might be worht checking into more. I get so scattered brained...I can't keep up with everything in my life lately it seems.

Kirsi, I changed my banner on my blog~maybe we could go with somehting along those lines?

I don't know???? I'll e-mail you in a bit...still so busy, but I wanted to check the comments {my new addiction}...

And yes, I probably would like Finland-ia...If I only had wings...

Kelly said...

It will not play for me there either. This little thing in the middle keeps spinning like it's going to load the song, but it doesn't.....?????

Kerrassaan upea kuva! Mahtava tunnelma!

Kelly

That’s strange....it happens to me sometimes, then somebody else in loading or doing something else…(I don’t know about computers)…at the same time or I have too many programs or something going on….go straight to Youtube and try there…Apocalyptica, Bittersweet

Voi olen tosi ilahtunut…ja juuri Susulle sanoin, että se on ainut suomalainen täällä pitkään aikaan kommentoimassa....tosi kiva, että pidit....

Kelly said...

Kirsi, I don't know what time it is there, but I imagine its pretty close to midnight??? Anyways, I e-mailed you some pictures qwith an idea I had. Let me know what you can do with it, if anything....

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Kelly they are really great, it’s really nice to work together...well I already send you email... so you know…

It’s not so late, I have some beers... and tomorrow I can sleep longer and I go to beach…

Ana Banana said...

oh yeah...Kirsi...it is almost bedtime for you and jimm is not around to tuck you in and whisper sweet things in your ear. Oh JIMMMMM? Where are YOU????? Is the movie cancelled again, for the second night in a row?!

I have plenty of buttered popcorn...

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Hey sisters....Jimms asked to tell you this:

//I Am Getting In Exercise Doing Laundry requires Strength J//


And I'm drinking beer...doing laundry also requires courage...:)

Kelly said...

Well, I will join you in the laundry department, but instead, i will drink a rum & coke!!! :)


....and eat my "Now & Laters"...

griesmail said...

bittersweet that's what life is...
You are a hardworking sweet woman!

okjimm said...

//doing laundry also requires courage...:) //

well, yes it does. the impossible is a reality.....the improbable
is only what you want it to be and the impractical is only a nusance.

the nice part about doing laundry together.....later you can watch the clothes in the dryer tumbling dry while you share asian delivery food.....I mean really....after a day biking....laundry works for me. I love fabric softner! :)

Ana Banana said...

nothing is impossible when it comes to love. Therefore, the impossible is surmountable.

Thus Spoke Anabanana

Ana Banana said...

a cigarette works, too.

Mick said...

Again, something a little bit different than usual and I like this very much. I find the background tree and trees incredible - I keep looking and looking, trying to figure out how you did this. :)

Ana Banana said...

good morning, miss kirsi itkuhippy.

hope you slept well...
