Re: Mexico

Hola! de nada por los artículos, si necesitas ayuda traduciéndolos me dices :wink: veré si logro encontrar algún otro que no se repita, encontré una que es de radio pero los que lo entrevistaron no eran muy buenos y todo suena algo incomodo, no se si la quieras escuchar aún así. Sí, soy de gdl, que...

Re: Mexico

English first for JerseyGirl-- It was fantastic! It was part of a huge, eight-day event called The International Book Fair. I'm pretty sure there was a performance every night, but I have a feeling this was one of the bigger ones. The actual venue was an outdoor space (with a tent-like roof) that pr...

Re: Mexico

(The third in a three-part monologue, I guess.) Guadalajara show was an awesome experience. Packed venue and very excited crowd. Just moving this thread up in case more Mexicans are finally visiting these forums. Gente de Guadalajara, !Gracias por una gran experiencia! Si tienes "links" a criticas/a...

Re: Frank singing Eulogy in spanish

For me, the best part of that version of "Eulogy" is that Frank replaced "Freddie Mercury" with "Vicente Fernandez" (a hugely popular Mexican singer who was born in Guadalajara). With no disrespect to Mr. Mercury, I thought it was a brilliant touch and most definitely endeared him even more to his f...

Re: "I face the horizon, everywhere I go"

Bumping this up to say thank you for playing the end of The Road at all the shows on the current U.S. tour. Lots of happy buzz amongst my gig buddies about this. It's an important part of the song. Happy to learn that I might get to hear these words live again! I don't think I have since getting th...

Re: Positive thoughts for negative me..

Just saw a meme that I liked today--unfortunately, I'm tech-impaired and don't have the time to figure out how to post it here. It read, "So far, you've survived 100% of the worst days of your life. You're doing GREAT!" How's that for perspective?

"No one gets remembered for the things they didn't do."

I wish I could remember where I heard that, though... ;-)

Re: Mexico

Acknowledged--replying to your own posts is lame. Still, SO excited to be able to take the question marks off the title of this thread because it's happening! And I'm pulling the trigger and booking a flight because, well, I doubt I'll regret it when I look back on my thirties. Just going to post be...

Mexico

I'm just gonna leave this here in hopes that it comes true. If so, I may just be crazy enough to see if I can pull this off... [Basic translation of the following is that there is NO official news of such a tour destination, but that Frank may have let something vague slip into a recent interview. I...

Re: US Vinyl shipment

This is the reply I got to my email to the FT Store UK a few days ago. Today is Aug. 23rd. Here's hoping it arrives tomorrow or the next day (even though yes, I have been listening to the songs streaming because, after all, I did already pay for them.) -----------------------------------------------...

Re: US Vinyl shipment

Am I right in taking this to mean you ordered from the UK link (Frank Turner Store UK)? I did, too, and still...nothing. Weeks ago, I got an email that said my order was "processed", but I'm about to write another one. I can't even remember why I ordered from the UK store, but maybe because it was t...

Re: Would like a FT song as a first wedding dance

You can get a slightly more detailed answer to this by reading Frank's book _The Road Beneath My Feet_. I'm not telling what page, because the whole thing is damn good and you should all read it. That said, if you've created your own positive meaning from it, then who's to say you shouldn't use it f...

Re: The Next Storm - radio play

Haven't heard anything yet here in Los Angeles. Having listened to our most established "alternative" rock (stupid label) station (KROQ) for the last twenty years, and having witnessed what a frustrating song and dance marketing singles to their finicky program directors can be [my desk happened to ...
