Distant worlds.  
 Lately, I've been literally dying trying to convince my parents to let me watch the concert. No, not the Owl City or any known bands' tours. It's more like an orchestra concert tour. Yes. Call me old-fashioned, but I enjoy listening to instrumental pieces. I listen more to those type of songs on my iPod. Katy Perry? Lady Gaga? A Day to Remember? They're good, but I barely listen to theirs. 
So, this is the concert that I want to watch so bad... the Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy concert. 

"Wait a fucking minute. You want to go to a concert where they'll feature music from a GAME?" Yes, shut up. :|
I don't care what anybody thinks. Nobuo Uematsu, the composer of one of the greatest RPGs, is a music GOD. A genius. I always died listening to his tracks whenever I play any installment of the series. It's because he's just so good, it captivated me and urged me to watch the concert. I've also seen one of his interviews on YouTube, and it shocked me how he said he never had formal music lessons. Right there, my 'respect' meter for him just tripled. Ever since then, I've always wanted to see his performance live. 
Er, I got side-tracked. Anyway, the first time I tried to convince my mom about this, she seemed to agree -- that is, until I checked the ticket price. 
Okay, maybe for some people it's not that expensive but that's a different story for me. I don't know how much that would cost in Rupiah but I guess the amount will probably break my bank. I don't always save money so that's a problem. But there's an even bigger problem to come by. I'll have to get out of this country to watch the concert. When I check the official website, the nearest upcoming concert will be held in Chicago, on June 26th 2011. Well fuck.
Wait, didn't Nobuo come from Japan? Asia? He should remember that he's got fans in Asia, too... er, like me. Or maybe us Asians are just temporarily invisible to him... I'm pretty sure he and his team will come here. China maybe? I don't know, I just hope it'll be close enough for me to go. I doubt Indonesia has one of those giant concert halls like they do in Sydney, Australia. Oh well. I should look out for more information because giving up ain't a choice for me when it comes to Final Fantasy. :D
