I'm being lazy and all relaxed, although I know that I need to start gathering material for my presentations and some papers. But it's so much fun to be lazy and listen to music.

I'm kind of an impulsive buyer and it quite shows with my CDs buying. Went to the book store with a friend from my classes before one of the lab works just to pass the time, he found a book on sale for really cheap and decided to buy it. When he was buying the book, I went to the music part of the book store and while I was looking around I saw Metallica's Death Magnetic album and behind it there were 3 more Metallica's albums. And when I saw what were those albums I stood there in shock and my brain was thinking what I should buy and in two seconds I was dead set on buying 2 albums.

There were Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets and S&M albums. And I bought the Master of Puppets and S&M albums. And now I'm really happy and listening to the live album S&M. It's amazing!

Last night was pretty amazing. I don't think I'll be forgeting April 21st so soon. It was my first ever serious rock/metal concert. Metallica finally came to Lithuania! It was fucking amazing! It was so amazing that I still have songs stuck in my head. I went with 2 of my awesome friends (Mindaugas and Vaidas). The concert was in another town so the 3rd friend (Evaldas) was driving us there and back. It was a common benefit, we went to the concert and he visited his girlfriend. Everyone's happy!

There were 2 opening bands: Gojiro and Fear Factory. They were all awesome. Really loved the vocals of Fear Factory. And the songs were really good. Although you can't really compare them to Metallica. Still, the 2 bands did get the crowd riled up.

After 2 bands we waited more than half on hour for Metallica to come on stage. We were dying from the anticipation. The whole arena tried to cheering and clapping and chanting, but the band still wasn't coming out. And then when the lights dimmed a little bit, Mindaugas offered me to get on his shoulders, so I did and I watched the first song being up high. And I saw the whole stage and I saw the band so close... I couldn't really believe that here right in front of me was James, Robert, Kirk and Lars. So surreal.

The first song was like 7 minutes long, and I don't know how Mindaugas was able to hold me up this long 'cause we are almost the same hight, so it was apparent that me sitting on his shoulders wasn't very comfortable. But after the song was over he put me down.

Metallica played their show without a break for 2 and half hours. It was awesome. This was the setlist. And I remember when they started playing The Unforgiven III, at first I thought that it really was the unoforgiven iii, but then when the song fully started, I was like nah, this couldn't be that song. And I even argued with Vaidas, who was trying to prove to me that they did play that song. So, after seeing the setlist, I can safely and surely say - I was fucking wrong. It happens.

They had laser show for 3 songs - it looked amazing, especially when I was sitting on Mindaugas's shoulders. And then they did some fire show for several songs. We were standing not very far from the stage and we could feel the heat from the flames. I don't even know how was it like for the band. And they played Nothing Else Matters, the whole arena sang so loud. I really did think that I was going to cry, but I didn't.

It sad that the merchandise was pretty expensive, at lest for my pockets. But it's OK, the band threw their picks to us, so I grabbed one. Lookie! And now I have a memorabilia, to remember this concert forever and ever. When the last song was playing, they let out black balls to push around. It's sad that I'm small (160 cm) so I wasn't able to even touch the ball.

On the drive back home we listen to Queen and sang along really loud. My body wanted to sleep, but I still wanted to have some fun. Got back to the dormitory around 2:30 a.m. Went to sleep and woke up at 7 a.m. without my alarm clock. Unbelievable.

Metallica promised to come here on the next tour, and to play 3 shows, not two. That would be cool!
