    I suppose I worded it weirdly, I'm mainly thinking about someone I know who's actually caused harm and 'admits to doing it' but hasn't made any attempt to formally apologize to me or the victim who has had it much worse from them. Thinking that we owe him any sort of forgiveness for simply 'getting help' when I know he's not remorseful at all and continues to play the victim card on us.

    I'd rather not give my take on the subject but I would say I rather people who have that mentality have a means to find help rather than go out in the real world and cause harm

    Not sure if it really is an unpopular opinion, but I don't think there's any redemption for pedophiles/child molestors/child abusers. I don't care how many '12 step programs' there are, there's no redeeming that. (I only bring this up because I literally had to hold myself back from yelling at my own mom)

    I don't think having kids is a bad thing, I just wanna clear that up. Nor do I think being selfish is inherently bad, actually (in some cases it's actually beneficial). I just think it'd be better if adoption was more popular and I also see a lot of people having kids just because they want to without thinking about the fact that they're bringing another human life into this world that only exists because their parents thought they were worth it. I fully respect people who have children because they want to see a healthy human life grow up and flourish as opposed to "I want someone with my surname", "I want my parents to be grandparents cuz they want to be", "I want..." but that doesn't change my view that adoption is the more compassionate option.

    Fully agree to this. Why forgiving them? So they go on like they did before? To make them feel better while they made others feel whatever they feel like now (since there's a wide range I don't put certain ways of feeling like there)?

    I think it's okay if they get therapy before they actually do anything to hurt someone/look anything up because that shows that they know they have a serious problem and they would never act on it/cause anyone any harm but if they actually go through with it, that's unforgivable.

    Angelo new album, "FAUST" release

    Nothing to be ashamed of—PIERROT means a lot to a lot of people and they had a very unique, haunting sound. I loved the hell/heaven juxtaposition between PRIVATE ENEMY and HEAVEN. Both were so absorbing and atmospheric. But yeah, I hope FAUST is more like HETERODOX and less like RESONANCE as well. H was a banger.

    Nah, you're good! I just wanted to make sure I understood where you were coming from. I totally agree with you tho. Bringing life into this world is a huuuuge responsibility, and it's obvious that a lot of ppl simply don't have a mindset that's conducive to raising children. Having a child for those selfish reasons you noted is definitely a huge issue...I know way too many ppl with multiple children that still think "everything is about them", while their children suffer. It's an absolute tragedy.

    not everyone is mentally/financially prepared to adopt tho, it's more often than not incomparable in terms of resources required to raising own kids (however at 7 bil. we've already reached w/o any signs of slowing down, the selfishness of having children in general can be dug deeper into.) I am so triggered tbh we're fucked until american corporate culture/team building style hits some sort of a major cultural roadblock and dies off forever as a result tbh but I don't see that coming for at least our gen

    ahhh, ok. So If I understood you correctly, what you're saying is something like "having children isn't a bad thing in and of itself, but rather, it's the intent behind having children that matters, and that's where things can get a bit problematic?" Something like that?

    I assume most people here know this, but the name Anti-Feminism has nothing to do with feminism. It was an ironic comment on "feminine" fashion in vk at the time. I guess feminism was one of those English loan words that kind of had a different meaning in Japan, kind of like how "bitch" means "slut" over there instead of "mean woman." Drawing the line at nazi imagery seems pretty extreme. That renders like half the 70s punk canon off limits. Would you seriously refuse to listen to Siouxsie and the Banshees or The Stooges or The Ramones because they played around with the imagery once or twice? Around the 80s, real fascist bands mostly moved on to more discrete symbols like celtic crosses and kolovrats--ironically a swastika is a pretty good indication that a band isn't seriously political in any way at this point. Basically a modern satanic pentagram circa the satanic panic. anyway, 'au†ism' were pretty ahead of their time, people definitely weren't obsessed with memeing that word back in the 90s like they are now.

    Angelo new album, "FAUST" release

    Cannot agree more with zombieparadise. When Pierrot had a concept they would go deep inside. For example, i think with the Angelo last album ' resonance ', they did a kind of ' brighter ' album. It's not bad, but for me they could do much better. Pierrot when they wanted to do a bright album, ' Heaven ' came out. It was like each album as it owns world. Also each members brought something more original. For example Jun guitarist of Pierrot used a guitar-synthetizer. I don't see many bands nowadays who use this kind of thing. It adds a lot of originality. Takeo on drums mixed acoustic drums and electronic pads. Plus you add to this Aiji groovy guitar style. I know i sound like a fanboy of Pierrot. But dont get me wrong, i like and listen to Angelo. But Pierrot is Pierrot. Maybe Faust will shut our mouthes who knows

    SHOXX vol. 15 scans

    this is my first post, but i'll spare intros haha! anyways - i have some magazines i scan, so i thought it would be nice to share, for all of the oldschool fans. this volume is from march '93; main event is the long seth et holth tusk + hide feature, but as with any shoxx, the whole volume is full of content -- i love those shots of Gargoyle especially. here's a mega link to the numbered raw HQ scans right here : ) these are a little colour corrected. i'll scan the rest of this, then vol. 29, 5 and 7 at some point. and yes! some of the scans are a bit messed up, that will be fixed at some point lmao. here's some highlights that aren't the seth et holth shoot lol, loved the shock age + yankees features :

    I think a majority of people would agree that PIERROT had a lot more artistry and creativity when it came to creating their music. (Some) Angelo songs are good, but they don't stay with you the way over the years the way PIERROT songs did. I wouldn't call it 'living in the past'; its an obvious comparison between two related bands.

    Since Jack Caper have been kind enough to add big, colourful subtitles (and even pictures!) for most of the dialogue in their new YouTube videos like variety shows, I decided to try to translate this video. It's from a series of interviews where the members all answer the same 20 or so questions to introduce themselves to the fans. For whatever reason, Riku added some extra questions in at the beginning for Hiro that none of the others answered, so those aren't numbered. My Japanese is atrocious, so even with the subtitles there are some bits I didn't understand, which I've highlighted in red and marked with "**". If anyone wants to help fill those in, please feel free. Any corrections are very welcome. Riku: Question time! Hiro: YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!! Riku: The reverberation (“yoin”) is really long (laughs) Hiro: Isn’t the reverberation still good?** ^(This is some sort of bad joke - he says “Yoin wa mou yoi n?”) What would you want to be if you were reborn? Hiro: I think I’d like to be myself again. What do you think of when someone says ‘summer’? Hiro: If it’s summer…TUBE! And Kuwata Keisuke. Riku: And if we’re talking about songs representative of TUBE? Hiro: Ah~ natsu yasumi~! Riku: As expected, that’s correct! 1. What is your part (his role in the band)? Hiro: The cash register at the supermarket! 2. What made you want to do that part? Hiro: I wanted money! 3. What is your blood type? Hiro: Sakuran joutai Type-A…B (AB) Riku: What’s that supposed to mean? Hiro: It’s from a DIR EN GREY song! There’s one where the lyrics go “Sakuran joutai TYPE-A” ^(he means “myaku”) Riku: (part I didn’t catch) Hiro: Kuwagata (Stag beetle). (More stuff I didn’t catch) 4. Where are you from? Hiro: Adachi City, Tokyo! 5. What are your hobbies? Hiro: Spearfishing. 6. What are your special skills? Hiro: Finding peoples’ faults. It’s the worst, isn’t it? Riku: The worst. 7. Favourite food? Hiro: Sweet things. 8. Things you hate?* (*When he reads the question, Riku omits the “tabe” part of “tabemono” that specifies it’s about food) Hiro: Riku. Riku: That’s wrong! Foods you hate! Even so, that was a shock. (laughs) Hiro: Liver. Riku: Do you have to do that for each one? Hiro: Ireba! (Dentures!) Riku: Do you need to move like that though? Hiro: (laughs) My body’s just moving on its own. I can’t just be quiet and answer! Riku: Well, I wish you’d calm down a bit (laughs) 9. Favourite artists? Hiro: Southern All Stars, Nakajima Miyuki and Sada Masashi Riku: What do you like about them? Hiro: -- (didn’t get this part)** 12. Type of girl you like? Hiro: A slave. Someone that will faithfully listen to what I say. Someone who will go “Yes!” even if I say “I’m good, but you’re not.” Riku: Which kind of slave is that? Hiro: (laughs) 10. What do you like about yourself? Hiro: Generally, I’m pretty smart. 11. Things you hate about yourself? Hiro: I’m too good of a person. I’m always sacrificing myself because I want to make the people around me happy. Riku: (snort of disbelief) Hiro: What? Is something weird about that? Riku: I’m just thinking “He’s saying that with a straight face” Hiro: (laughs) It’s true! Riku: Quit acting.** (laughs) 13. How you spend your days off? Hiro: Messing around with my bike. 14. If you had to share a room with a member of the band for a month, who would be good and who would be bad? Hiro: I’d like to try sharing a room with all of the members. All: Ohh Hiro: But Riku would be bad. (laughs) Riku: Everyone has been saying I’d be bad! (laughs) Hiro: Because you’re messy! Riku: What’s so bad about that~?** 15. What do you want to do with Jack Caper? Hiro: I’d like to live together on a deserted island for a month! Choco: I can’t deal with bugs~! Hiro: You can eat the bugs! 16. Prefecture in Japan you want to go to? Hiro: Oita Prefecture! Riku: Why? Hiro: Because I’ve always wanted to try being a fisherman in Oita. Riku: Oh, to scope it out** Hiro: Recently I’m also interested in the Ogasawara Islands. I was researching some of the world’s picturesque views yesterday as well, and since the Ogasawara Islands were mentioned— Choco: Which prefecture are the islands in? Hiro: Tokyo. If you put the boat and accommodation together, the cheapest trip there is around 70 000 yen. (About $700)** All: So expensive! Hiro: If you go on the fastest boat, it’s 24 hours. The second fastest is 25.5 hours. One-way trip. Riku: (didn’t get this line - some joke about giants?)** 17. Most recent YouTube video you watched? Hiro: Probably something like Game Center Mikado’s KOF (King of Fighters) tournament. 18. If you weren’t in a band, what would you be doing? Hiro: Fisherman. 19. What’s something that you’re glad you bought recently? Hiro: A bicycle! Well, I didn’t buy it, it was bought for me. I haven’t really bought much myself recently, but water – I bought water recently. I thought I’d try drinking mineral water. The water in Tokyo always tastes so chlorinated.** Riku: It’s not that water that’s supposed to boost your power, is it? Hiro: Chikara mizu! (laughs) Recently, I buy water at regular intervals.** ^"Chikara Mizu", or "Power Water", is the name of the product Riku: Like some sort of secret agent. (laughs) Hiro: I won’t say the name of the product. 20. A message to yourself after one year. Hiro: Are you still a genius? 21. A message to yourself after ten years. Hiro: Is Riku still alive? (laughs) Riku: Don’t kill me~ Seriously. Hiro: Are bikes flying in the sky? Riku: A message to yourself! (laughs) Hiro: To myself in ten years? Shuma: It became a message to the time period (laughs) Hiro: When you felt you had to persist, it wasn't a mistake!** Riku: I feel like I’ve heard that before… Hiro: Myself in ten years, huh… Are you getting married? (laughs) Riku: You’re doing It seriously, huh? (laughs) Hiro: Are you a fisherman now? Are you a bandman? Or have you even become a man that relies on women for money like Riku? Riku: Hey! Shut up (#^w^) (laughs) Don’t say that. Hiro: No matter which path you walk, all you can think is that you’re a success. In this life, can you still think that way about yourself? (blows kiss) Riku: You kissed yourself? Hiro: In my life, I don’t think I’ve failed much. No matter what kind of life I live, I think it’ll be a success. Riku: That’s all the questions. Hiro: Well, we’re going out like this. Finally, this shitty guy (Riku) is going to answer some questions, so- ^Riku's video is going to be the last one in the series Riku: Cut it out! (laughs) Hiro: Enjoy! See you!

    It's been forever, but here: I waited for a month for rocklyric to post the lyrics to it, because they had added it to their site which usually means it's "incoming", but I grew tired of waiting and wrote up the lyrics myself off the video 😂 It's notable I've been on a journey of doing the entire Deviloof and Gallo discographies with one song of each every week, aside from the one week I pushed them aside to do the newest Dexcore http://bit.ly/gallodeathtopia had lyrics in text form for anyone interested

    If I'm not mistaken, we still have to see several songs: 「めんどくさい」 「0」 「甘依存」 「41」 These are also from PROJECT砂糖 but I have no record that it has been played in キラワレモノ(Kirawaremono). There is a possibility that he changed his name... Most of Kirawaremono's songs have been from his previous project. 「ひよこ」 「笑って」 「薬」 「ゆびきり」 「薬と笑う」 I leave several songs that have not yet been filmed in PV: 「甘依存」 and 「41」 「0」

    Coolest sounding band names?

    It's easy looking at vk bands to assume that French culture is really popular in Japan, but they're actually really into Germany over there. They admire many aspects of German culture and more or less view German people as their western counterparts. They were also military allies of Germany, so their admiration + history with them may lead to some WW2 fetishism. Of course, yes, there is probably an element of provocativeness there as well as that's a core part of early vk.
