Where was I? Rock Werchter, Harry Potter and Gilmore Girls!

It’s been a week since I went back to college and post summer depression is killing me. I haven’t written in a long time but, amongst other things, I still fangirled. You know this blog isn’t about what I did as normal human, but what I did as an all type fangirl. Here’s a little summary of what it was.

Rock Werchter 2016

For about 3 years, my two friends and I have been talking about Rock Werchter. Since they’ve been delivering the best line ups since 5ever, it was a dream for us to be for once excited about going instead of being mad jealous of those who were. Last year, we made a promise: Rock Werchter 2016 was going to be ours. And it was !

Obviously, when we bought our tickets, all we could think of was music, baes and more music. We thought that our life would be like Vanessa Hudgens’ instagram page during Coachella and we were completely wrong. First of all, we considered camping. Bare in mind that I have never camped in my whole life and neither have my friends. Then we checked the weather and I realized that it wasn’t an option. Rock Werchter was more like a belgian version of Glastonbury then a beautiful and sunny Coachella. For 4 days, we were rocking rain coats and rain boots because of the amount of mud and rain. We finally decided to go for an hotel to have at least a bit of familiar comfort. And according to some campers, it was the best decision ever !

Although this sounds like a nightmare, the festival was still everything that it promised. The amount of good music we witnessed in four days made up for all the bruises, back pain, killing feet and lack of sleep we had. To be honest, it was one the greatest experience of my life and I intend to make festival tour next year. Make it wild !

Here’s the artist we’ve seen:

  • Years&Years
  • Ellie Goulding (partially)
  • The 1975
  • Daughter
  • Savages
  • Red Hot Chili Pepper (partially)
  • The Last Shadow Puppets
  • Oh Wonder
  • Alessia Cara
  • Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
  • Florence and the Machine
  • Tame Impala
  • Puggy
  • Foals (partially and I hate myself for not staying until the end)
  • Läpsley
  • Trixie Whitley
  • James Bay
  • New Order (Never again !!!)

I could have done an article about it. Maybe… I will.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

On my previous article, I couldn’t help but share my happiness on the big return of Harry Potter as a book. Little did I know that I would be slightly disappointed.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone is the most important book of my life (after the Bible, of course). It was the first novel I read, and like a first boyfriend, never really stop loving them. The whole series slayed my childhood so hard that even today, I make Harry Potter references on daily basis. Well… I even work at “Harry Potter the exhibition” in Brussels. So obviously, I expected to be slayed once more by that book. But I wasn’t.

I will eventually make an extensive article about it but, to be honest, there’s not much to say. It was amazing to see what happened to every characters. And because this world is magic, it only took about two lines to jump back into the wizarding world.

However, the storyline was … not that good. And the fact that it’s not a novel but a play makes it very difficult to have that very visual reading J.K. Rowling’s novels had.

You can expect my real thought after the book is out in French (October the 14th).

Netflix marathon

This summer, I was very excited about the return of Marco Polo. But instead of going for new things, I let Netflix lead me in audivisual memory lane.

After rewatching for the thousands time the only season of Sense8, I went for the ultimate favorite tween show: Gilmore Girls. 90% of today’s 22 years old fangirl like myself wanted to either be as smart as Rory or as cool as Lorelai. And because Netflix is just the bomb, they are reviving the show for Thanksgiving and we couldn’t be more thankful. Unlike One Tree Hill that also build my childhood, Gilmore Girls is one of the only TV shows that I completely trust with a risky come back.

To prepare us properly for it, they put the 7 seasons online for us to watch. Of course, it’s not the first time I’ve rewatched the whole thing but it’s kinda of amazing to see how much my feelings about stuff changed over the years. I guess this is the only way for me to know if I’ve matured or not. For instance, I now have better appreciation for Emily and Richard Gilmore. Ok, they might be a little extreme sometimes (like when Emily went crazy when she found out Lorelai was with Luke) but Lorelai was a bit childish too. See? I grew up! But some things never change: I still hate Jess with Rory, I still think Kirk is the best character ever, Luke is the best thing to happen to Lorelai and to me the real father of Rory (sorry Chris), Logan is a beautiful jerk, and I’m definitely going to be Babbette or Miss Patty when I grow old.

Anyway, I cannot wait for my “Gilmore Girls come back” party and the review that would definitely follow.

Despite the fact that I was gone for a long time, it’s not because I’m not fangirling on this blog that I ain’t fangirling at all.
