    Name a big time Asian musician, that cares about their image, who HASN'T had plastic surgery?
  2. Ramune for life. Especially Yuzu flavor. I'm a slutty hoe for Yuzu flavor
  3. Holy fuck, so y'all know that picture of Yuuga I found where he looks like a total scene kid?

    Yeah that same picture, although blurry, is in the background of the Akuma Kicha cover, on the TV

      That's some fine detective kei work.

      The older artwork on their releases are super cute and appealing to me. also devil kitty is just a great band name, 悪魔鬼茶 would be just as good

  4. This is a weird question, but am I the only one who thinks that smart phones have taken the wrong route, design-wise?

    I'm sorry... but I really don't see the appeal in having wafer-thin phones that can bend in your pocket if designed poorly, or phones that are literally all screen.

     

    Imo, those don't improve my experience at all. If anything, they are a detriment to it because there is so fucking little to hold onto when watching a video. It honestly feels unergonomic to use, and this may just be my nostalgia for the early 2000's speaking, but I honestly miss the physical feel of old-school smart phones, and I honestly don't feel that just making the entire phone a screen, with no physical buttons at all, or even edges, really improves the user experience.

     

    I honestly would be happy with a phone that has the physical design of a t-mobile sidekick, but with the modern capabilities of modern smart phones.

      You forgot about the biggest crime in smartphone design in the last years: removing the headphone jack. I don't care how convenient it is to have no cables - the jack worked fine and the sound quality is better and more reliable. I know people who'd smash their bluetooth speakers and headphones against the wall if it weren't for the peer pressure and "coolness factor". 

      The last years we didn't have any true improvements as storage, memory and cpu capabilities are only slowly getting better and at this point it's just producers and brands inventing new gimmicks to incite people to buy the lastest tech. Shit like making phones so thin they need a screen repair after one year and having to buy extra bluetooth devices or an adapter to listen to music are the things that help these companies to fake innovation to get more money… while prices are increasing every year.

      My biggest headache tech wise is having to not only choose whether I charge my phone or use earphones, but also the fact that my phone has an exclusive earphone/charging jack so if I'm going out with more than one device I have to take out multiple headphones. That and like aimi said  m ergonomic issues, my hands are destroyed from phone use.

      Remember when the future meant super tiny phones?

       

      I let my phone slide and hit the ground or fall just because it's now designed to do so. haha within reason so I don't have to buy another one. Lucky so far but also ready to smash it's face. Tech indeed has improved our lives but the moment it stops working like it should, it brings out a unique kind of rage. I'm talking about texting correct English and casting to my "smart" TV. I used to love customizing my phone interface, but my latest had so much stuff for me to go through to "get to know it" I quit and just change the bkgds now...

       

      Also, I think having great cameras on phones kills my camera buying. I still want a camera but then I need a phone which costs more than a decent camera but the phone comes with some high tech lens and I can't avoid it. Now two big appliances in my bag.

       

      I miss flip phones and phones with full keyboards.

  5. It's not uncommon to see Lapsteel guitars, or "Ha Uy Di" (the closest the Viet language can get to "Hawaii") in Southern Vietnamese Music, but it is pretty rare to see someone do it with a modified acoustic guitar. Personally, I think it sounds cooler than the Electric

    On the topic of Kuroyume, the PV for BEAMS definitely shows a lot of Y2K futurism
  7. Himeaimichu

    For music videos inspired by The Matrix, [KR] cube definitely takes the cake. Solitude by Mystic Moon lowkey looks like a TLC music video.
  8. Well this is definitely one weirder piece of "Traditional" Vietnamese music I've found.

    First off, you got the fucking tango music coming out of the Yamaha keyboard, with synths so bad you'd swear they're from a Yuuga song. And then there is the madlad guitarist, attempting to play Vietnamese music over tango, with one fucking hand at some parts. And then you have the guy playing the Dan Sen (two stringed lute) who is just... there...

    Vietnamese boomers listen to some crazy stuff

    Recently, I've been getting more interested in the Y2K aesthetic. For those who don't know, the Y2K aesthetic is a collective term for the sleek futurism of the late 90's and early 2000's that manifested itself in music videos, fashion, and technology. As Aesthetic Wiki puts it, "Y2K is an aesthetic that was most prevalent from roughly 1998 to 2003. Y2K aesthetics are often characterized by a distinct aesthetic period, encapsulating fashion, hardware design, music and furnishings shiny with tech optimism – sometimes literally. According to the Y2K Institute, some of Y2K's aspects include, tight leather pants, silver eye-shadow, shiny clothing, Oakleys, gradients, and Blobjects and Blobitecture. Most of Y2K aesthetics rely on the use of technology and slick futuristic looks, signaling the optimism a new era as people approached the millennium". This thread is to discuss the use of the Y2K aesthetic in Visual Kei. One of my favourite examples is the iconic music video for Yokan by Dir en Grey. This pretty much speaks for itself And while this is definitely past the era of Y2K, the music video for Mikansei to GUILT by Phantasmagoria is definitely influenced by Y2k futurism.

    RIP. May he make music with the gods
  11. Edit: Live now!

    IDK if I'm allowed to promote this here, but I'm gonna be streaming GTA San Andreas a little tonight for the first time on Twitch, and I was wondering if any of y'all would like to join in and give feedback

    1. Himeaimichu

      If anyone is interested, I'll be streaming here soon

      The stream is over now, but tune in tomorrow. Hopefully things will go more smoothly

  12. Can there be a new GTA Clone series? Because Rockstar has gone to shit and I don't trust them to make GTA VI any good at this point. 

     

    We should've got a sleeping dogs 2, but Square Enix had to be a huge dick to the companies they work with

      There's a Brazilian studio working on a GTA esque game set in Brazil.

      That seems cool! Hopefully they'll make an English translation of the game! Brazil would be an interesting place for a GTA clone. I imagine the Favelas of Rio would make for excellent parkour

  13. Himeaimichu

    I kinda wish they still dressed Visual Kei. Like, yeah yeah I get it, music isn't necessarily a fashion show, but like, they sound too Visual Kei to dress so normal. It's like, I listen to it and I literally just hear a modernised Allure Idea. They sound way too cool to not be at least expressive with their looks.

    This band keeps getting more Vkei and I'm all here for it
  15. Still can't get over the fact Hakuei claimed that only Japanese people can be Vkei because according to him, you have to have a very specific set of facial features. 

    Guess any Japanese person who doesn't look like Hakuei can't be Vkei. Sorry guys, must be Ainu or Ryukyuan or something lmao. Like, I'm no anthropologist, but according to Hakuei, having a sharp jaw is a Japanese trait.
