Just went yesterday night to see Distant Worlds tour (Final Fantasy) at the Atlanta Symphony Hall.
SO FUCKING FANTASTIC! I got chills like the whole time, especially when FF8 music was played (my favourite :OO)
What was surprising was that the Georgia Tech chorus was actually the chorus that was singing and they were pretty kick-ass (The program said that they recently had been doing very well in terms of the southeast and they have a good director too.)
But yeah-- any song with the chorus was really awesome. Maybe I'm just a sucker for human voices, but the first song, Liberi Fatali from FF8 (Opening song) was just so awesome, my spine tingled the whole time. Unfortunately, I do have to say that whoever was in charge of the cymbals was off... more than once. And considering that he's by far the loudest and most easily heard, it was kind of irking me that he couldn't even get his beats straight-- dude, you're like one of the most obnoxiously loud instruments in the orchestra-- at least make it on the right beat!!
Fisherman's Horizon (FF8) was also really really sweetly done, it was gorgeous-- probably my favorite song the whole night <3 I'm so happy they chose that song-- it's so sweet and chill. The FF13 stuff was also incredibly gorgeous, especially Blinded by Light. So fucking adrenaline rush when I hear that song, especially when accompanied by motherfuckingBA!Lighting videos :D Yeah~
And then afterwards, Anton and I went to go see Thor in 3D. Pretty good, I'd say, like better than average-- I really like how the 3D was used tastefully in the video, not like a gimmick. I hope other movie studios use Thor as a role model for using 3D in a more mature way in the future-- to enhance the movie experience, not to give audiences a heart-attack whenever someone throws something.
Of course, I am no movie critic, so I could be completely wrong about this as well -__-.
YAY! DISTANT WORLDS <3333
