I finally registered on StudiVZ after the prompt of Viola and checking out the photos of Wacken I found quite a few of them that I just had to have for myself. I tried to download them but StudiVZ has a very stupid idea to stop people from downloading, by redirecting the actual file link to an empty .gif file. However this cannot obviously stop anything, but rather delay and annoy me. I just printed the screen, pasted it into GIMP and cut the part that was of interest. Of course that meant that the picture was only as large as StudiVZ’s small window, but it’s better than nothing. To this end I’ve created a new dandy album with all of those for you to admire me once again 😉
Some of the best pictures were taken by Anton who just took one amazing Firebreath pic of me in my last show, among others. I just can’t believe how good this looks :D. I guess that’s what happens when the photographer is a professional.
He also has some newer ones uploaded from the recent BBQ but I’ve still to…borrow those 😉
In any case, well done Anton 😉
I also saw some more cool ones taken at the Final Destination as well at the [tag]Wacken[/tag] Warm-up party and I just could not resist making a copy for me. Some of them are just so well shot 😀
So go and have a look at the new stuff.
A member of our Wacken trip, seems to have a quite a good skill at making videos, he has mixed up his takes from Wacken and created a little trailer, as a taste of what happened. It was created with a little 300 theme in mind.
You can see it below, or if you’d rather have a more lite version (it is 40MB), you can head over to Youtube where he has uploaded it as well.

Wacken Open Air 2007 then. A big metallic pile of 80.000 fuckin’ people, drinking, shouting, headbanging, fucking, singing and all that comes when you put so many young people together.
It was awesome!
So, I guess it’s finally time to sit down and write about this thing. Boy is this going to take a while…

Fucking hell! I’ve been writing for 1.5 hours and I’m still only in the middle of the WOA blogpost…
So, I’m back as you probably figured out. No big post yet but the gallery for the festival is filled with stuff. Until I can get around to writing the damn blogpost check it out and feel free to comment on stuff.
Unfortunately, two of my better and bigger vids where corrupted after I took them (no idea why. Size I guess?). But if you think you might be able to restore them, by all means attempt it! I’d be grateful if you did.
As for the post, I’ll try to split it into two parts. The first will be about my experience in the festival and will be hosted here, while I’m planning on writing the second over at my last.fm journal just for the heck of it.
Write to you soon.
- Pile of camping stuff: Ready
- Shit Kickers (To hold against the rain): Ready
- Pozer outfit: Ready!
- A crapload of torrents downloading: Done!
- Rsyncing my whole music collection to ftp since I have the time: Why not.
Alls good. I probably forgot a shitload of stuff which will mean that I will end up in a very bad situation but what the hell. Lets screw up.
Wacken 2007, here I come!
