    That DVD is awesome!
  3. I can forgive them not being very good live because of the performances. They are just so damn fun live! Granted, I'm also a huge Alice Cooper fan and have been since elementary school...everyone knows you don't see him live for the singing XDD you go for the experience
  4. Howdy, I really like your avatar! It reminds me a bit of Hatsune Miku's 結ンデ開イテ羅刹ト骸 tho =)

    There are a couple of reasons why re-recordings sometimes make sense to me. For VK, the first few singles are usually made in extremely low quantities and are difficult to come by. I think in cases like this, bands feel weird releasing the exact same track again so they either re-record or remaster it. For other artists who have had a very long career, their style will usually have shifted dramatically (possibly even a few times) so re-recording their old songs can be a way to show what that song would have sounded like, had they released it now. For example, Alice Cooper released an iTunes EP in 2010 called Alice Does Alice, where he covered five of his early singles from '71-'75. While I was ambivalent to most of the tracks, I actually love the new version of I'm Eighteen just as much as I do the original!

    Catching the towel at CANIVAL's birthday live for Kosuke and Luvia was the first time I'd ever caught anything at any concert! I actually suspect it was thrown to me specifically because I had recently been at the Xaa Xaa live where no one responded when Kazuki asked if people were having fun and saw how devastated he looked. When Kosuke asked the same question, I waited but no one did anything at first and I got worried so I started cheering (once I started, everyone else started). After that, I caught him smiling at me a few times during the set and then he threw it where only I could catch it. I might be imagining it though! So many Nero ones! At the M-ology CORE listening event, I got to meet them wearing my Nero shirt and he hugged me! Then at an instore the following week, he remembered me! Unlike a lot of foreigners in Japan, I don't stand out very much because I have black hair/eyes so I'm always surprised when people remember me, let alone a bandman who I met for like 10-15 seconds. Then, at the signing before the Shizuoka show a few months later, I was really convinced he wouldn't remember me because I had cut off all my hair. I should have had more faith in Nero because he still knew it was me right away and this time he asked my name so he could sign it to me. He misspelled it but I don't care; I felt really special. Getting to meet You from Gosan...I know a lot of people don't like him but he was so nice and really wanted to talk to me and ask questions. I mean, the guy doing the chekis was gone for some reason and I didn't want to be presumptuous so I was patiently waiting for him to come back but You called out to me and started a conversation. When I've met other bandmen, sometimes it's kinda awkward and I don't know what to say to them but he was easy to talk to. When we took the cheki, both of us immediately did the Zombie's Love Letter claws, and it was the perfect final experience before I left Japan.

    Yep. The red one has the song Sakashima End Roll which completes the maxi single of that name (if you've ever wondered why that single didn't have a song with that name...that's why XD)

    It's strange, I keep hearing this horrible stuff about Gosan and I did not experience or witness it once and I saw them four times in Japan (2 taiban and 2 oneman). After the last oneman I stuck around for the mini talk and polaroid meets and Yuu was a total sweetheart to me! He even dropped the yankee accent so I didn't have to struggle to understand him. The crazy furi is a huge part of why I love their lives so much and I go all out, even if I make mistakes in the more complicated parts.

    This is a question for anyone who is living or has lived in Japan and gone to lives here. Have you found yourself listening to songs for the first time and heard some part of the music that makes you think you know which common furitsuke movement happens there? Just today I was listening to an old Gazette B-side and thought at one point, "this part feels like oritatami." It's been happening a lot in the past couple of weeks for bands I've never even seen live before and I'm curious if others have experienced it.

    idk With a band I love, I often dislike the new album at first listen because it's different than what I'm used to hearing. Once I get past that I usually love it! I didn't have that problem with this album though. I had it really, really bad with under-world though.

    This reminds me! I recently found these pictures on my old photobucket account of my hand sewn Merry shirts. It was impossible for me to get legit merch in America back then (around 2007) so I finally decided to just make my own. Attempt 1 Front and back design: Yeah, not great f(^^;) I do really like how the umbrella came out though! I am much more pleased with the second one, which is cross stitch (I am way more confident with cross stitch than embroidery) and I drafted the pattern by hand over the course of a month. The long blood drip in the logo has gotten a little crooked over the years so I think I'll redo that part when I go back to the US next week.
