  1. The bastard who went on shooting spree has been killed finally. 4 more dead found inside the shopping mall. 2 SWAT lost their lives in the mission. This incident is the greatest loss in our history. It's too much. Never expected that something like this could happen in Thailand especially in Korat. RIP.

  2. WTF! A mass shooting is currently happening in my area. The criminal is a soldier carrying military weapons in a Humvee to shoot random people in the city. Now he went inside the crowded shopping mall and it's become a war zone there. 20+ dead so far and a lot injured. I just passed there only an hour before this happened. It's fucking close to my house. I hope he gets shot down asap. Big news tomorrow in my country for sure. Damn it!

      Looks like the situation is being sorted out, but the criminal isn't dead yet.

       

      Most of the remaining people who have been in the shopping mall for 7 hours have been evacuated to the outside safely. They were hiding in the rooms and toilets there. But gunfires can still be heard from the outside.

       

      I'm not sure about the bombs. They stated that no bombs were stolen from the base in the first place fortunately.

       

      This is the 2nd massacre that happened in Thailand in 2020: the first one was in Lop Buri last month and the latest one is in Korat, my hometown. This one is supposedly inspired by the first one and 2011 Norway attacks. Facebook deleted the criminal's account immediately once they detected his illegal activity which is good because he couldn't keep up with the news and information.

       

      I still can't believe it. This is very very shocking. It's the worst crime in Thailand's history and it's only 1 km away from my house. I've been following the situation very closely from the beginning and still waiting for the official news to confirm his death.

      Damn. Good to know you're safe, but still. 1km is really "next" you. 

  3. Here in Bangkok, we're suffering from PM 2.5 and now the coronavirus.

     

    14 infected cases found here as of now which is the second most next to the mainland China as Thailand is one of the destinations that Chinese visit most.

     

    Everyone here has  to put a mask on when going outside to protect themselves from both air pollution and the virus.

     

    I don't know how long they can handle this because it's spreading globally. I've been sick already since yesterday though.

    this may be off topic but this topic reminds me of what i always wanted to say about mh. idk what we overseas fans can do to make vk more popular than what it is, but one thing i think doable is to make mh become more popular. vk may be dead one day but mh should live on after that. personally i always see mh as a very underrated japanese music forum that has high potential to grow bigger. if the stats on similarweb aren't lying, it's very impressive that we have around 1.3m page views monthly (from 200k total visits * 6.6 page views per a visit). what i mean is mh already has a huge user base in hands but the engagements of the content on the forum are a lot less compared to it. for example, we have very few concurrent registered users online as you can see from the image below. it's only ~20 members online. (700 guests are mostly crawlers i believe). i know that it's taken at a random time of a day but usually it's still not significantly more than this either considering we have over 9.6k members registered. additionally, we can have more followers on facebook and twitter from our daily visitors if we want to. (it hurts to see that mh which is the source of almost everything japanese rock related has far less likes than random j-rock pages on facebook even demon android's one.) moreover, traditional forum software like IPB is kinda 2000-ish, but i'm just saying. i have nothing against it. IPB is not bad though. it regularly gets updates and bug fixes. but nowadays there are a number of better open source alternatives as well; e.g. discourse and nodebb. converting the database from one to another is such a pain though if we ever do it. sysops are one of the most important roles that almost nobody notices the effort they put behind the scenes. we have had only 3-4 sysops since the inception of mh and now there is only one left. it's a vital position that needs to recruit too. what'd we do if they're all gone? it'd even mean the end of mh. (not sure about how recruiting a new sysop is going, but it seems difficult to get one to begin with.) at the end of the day, staff are all volunteers. finding a suitable staff member who is willing to spend their free time is hard already but finding one who is dedicated to the community is even harder. one day the current staff members will be rotated as well. so we're not going anywhere if we don't expand the user base. we can find more talented people from a bigger one. this is my two cents: it's time for mh 4.0. sooner or later mh has to change too. otherwise, the community will be gone if we don't do something beforehand. if i were the founder, i'd rebrand "monochrome-heaven" to something else shorter, easier to type and pronounce, and easy to remember esp for non-english natives. having a dash (-) in a domain name looks unprofessional for a brand imo. just like when "thefacebook.com" becoming "facebook.com". the former is not a professional brand name compared to the latter. they bought it once they had the money to afford it and became the "facebook" we know nowadays. rebranding mh may be too much for those who're familiar with the name but it'd be a big step to be known better. by rebranding i mean changing the look of the forum too whether it be a new skin or even new forum software that's more modern. we can still stick with vk just like before and be more open to the general japanese rock scene which is more lively and has a wider fanbase like ruling it all online not only on here but also on other social networks. yeah, i know that it's easier said than done. it takes a lot of effort and is very challenging to accomplish, but knowing the potential mh has not being used is wasting as well.

    I see it only on Chrome but not on Firefox. I'm using Arch Linux.

    i dont care about the lineup as long as AI is the main music composer and vocalist bc everything he has produced sounds pretty much the same (and i like that). hope they get a new guitarist asap.

    DEZERT as a whole seem to be cat people because they set a cat as the main character in this PV.

    And ZAN is the #1 catchiest song. Yeah, totally agree that GAUZE is full of catchy songs. It'd be nice if one day they came up with an idea of forming an alter-ego band that went back to their old school VK roots and released GAUZE 2.0 lol.

    我、闇とて… is always my go-to track every time I want to listen to something on UROBOROS. It's a great ballad. Now I kinda agree with the poll that TIW is their worst album ever. Just didn't want to judge an album I barely listened to. THE MARROW OF A BONE is much better for me after I have given TIW more listens.

    Among these albums, why only UROBOROS got a remastered version? :< It's good to have though, but it was too soon to remaster a 3-year-old album back then. UROBOROS is probably their masterpiece, and they had to make more money out of it while they still could? Well, I'm just hoping that they will release more of remastered albums in the future.

    U FORGOT TO INCLUDE GANGSTA!! Otherwise, GANGSTA would be the worst album ever.
