May the force be with you...

Have you ever thought about flying in a balloon? I did, but I have to admit I never dared to do it, somehow those things feel a bit unsafe for me, I don't really like the idea of my life depending only on a balloon and the wind... THIS balloon though is something I would for sure not be able to resist :-) Nothing can go wrong as long as the force is with you!

Most heard album:

Opeth - Watershed

In case you wonder why there are only 3 gigs mentioned while everything else is a top 5 list, well, I have been to more concerts in 2008 but the other ones didn't really impress me much ;-) And yes, I really like Chinese Democracy, unlike the rest of the world (at least this is the impression that I get when I read all the reviews and comments about this album), maybe it helps that I have never been a Guns'n'Roses fan so I didn't really have any expectations, but well, in my opinion it is a great rock album.
