    This is going to be a really long post, but I literally lost sleep last night thinking about this haha. 
     
    I really also don't know why I'm posting this. Maybe I just need to post it somewhere where people will understand. The community that I love so much.
     
    Music really has a way to change us, mold us, and destroy us. 
     
    I was super into Versailles when they formed. I had always liked Kamijo, and followed him pretty extensively through his Lareine career; although I had to do it through my friend who liked him, she would get mad if I liked him. But that's a different story.
     
    I had been a fan of Versailles since the day they started. I fell in love with "The Revenant Choir" instantly. And I fell even more in love with Jasmine You, the beautiful, talented bassist. 
     
    I ended up spending all of the money from my first job on Versailles and D stuff. To the point where I made stupid mistakes and overdrafted my account and my parents had to bail me out hah. But I knew that I had found something amazing. Versailles touched my heart in so many ways. 
     
    I ended up owning (and still do), their entire discography up through Jubilee. Including rare live-only cds and things I had to use shopping services to purchase. I had to have it, I had to support this amazingly talented band. 
     
    And then it hit me like a bag of bricks. Jasmine You had passed away. As quickly as they had come, they were gone. And I couldn't handle it. I was such a huge fan of his, I lost it. I had never cried over a celebrity death before, but I literally played "Episode" over 1,000 times, my grief was very strong. I didn't know how to deal with the fact that a musician that I loved so dearly was gone from the world. 
     
    I didn't touch Versailles for years. I wouldn't follow them, wouldn't buy their other cds. I was grieving in that way. I didn't want to hear Versailles without Jasmine in it. And whenever any of their Jasmine-included songs would play, I would skip it, as it would upset me to the point of tears. I just couldn't do it.
     
    Last night, I was watching some Kamijo videos. I can listen to his solo stuff just fine. And Lareine, too. Lareine is one of my favorite older bands; so I'm okay with them. On youtube, I was just clicking around. Watching Kamijo video after video. And then I saw it. 
     
    "Remember Forever." 
     
    A song dedicated to Jasmine, that I had never listened to, because it was on a cd that I had never bought. That I didn't know existed, because I had excluded myself from the world of Versailles. It was a live video, so I clicked on it.
     
    I was not expecting the emotional ride that I went on. Purple lights on the stage; lights for him. For my bassist. And a song that was so beautiful, I started bawling my eyes out. It was written for him, and you could tell. The quietness of the audience made it even more real. But it was beautiful.
     
    After I had finished watching it, I spent a lot of time just listening to Versailles. Thinking about Jasmine, and how happy he had made me when he was alive. And I realized that I shouldn't be afraid of change. I should continue to go on, even if something sad, or horrible happens. And that I should continue on. 
     
    Jasmine is a beautiful person, a memory that should never be forgotten. And I never will forget about him. It'll be 10 years in November since his passing. And I think I'm brave enough to play Versailles again. To REALLY enjoy them again. 
     
    For Jasmine's sake.

    Anyone got a reliable guide / app for ripping DVD to iso? I want to share the KYTK DVD but I haven't done anything with DVDs in years and can't seem to find anything other than 'imgburn'.
    Which most downloads for it now are full of adware/viruses, that and or a lot of YT guide vids in Hindi lol. There's also poweriso but it's 30$.

    Seeing all the visual novel reviews on Steam saying shit like "omg there's liek no gameplay REEEEE" is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. It's like reading a light-hearted romance novel and complaining about the lack of violent deaths. There's a visual novel tag for a reason.

    Slipknot gets a lot of hate from the metal fans who have graduated onto more technical/mathy/atmospheric metal substyles and bands, but damn...
     
    It doesn't matter how much nutty tech death or mathcore I listen to, Iowa always holds up as one of the heaviest albums ever. The drumming and vocal  performances really sell it so well, and the production does an amazing job of not going too clean pristine (the problem of many A-list metal act's albums and tech death metal bands), but also not disregarding the power of well-executed recording/mixing and being too raw in a weak way (the problem of many new-era black metal/experimental/atmospheric inspired metal bands). Perfect blend of precision and fervor, sonicly speaking.
