Just wanted to drop some things here.
First of all, I just looked for a live version of this song by Janne Da Arc, and tada~ I found one.
Category 神曲 ["Divine Song"]
Although I think that in this live version, his voice doesn't come out quite as strong in relation to the instruments as on the records, I only noticed here
how great the drums really are.
I am still having my playlist on "all Jrock". Which is nice once in a while. It's funny to see what songs come up - songs I haven't been listening to in a year, or longer *laughs*
It's also quite funny to see which bands seem to come up more often than others. So much LAREINE for example. Although I don't even have that many songs by them. Less than twenty to be sure, heh.
However to be honest, whenever something by BUCK-TICK/櫻井敦司 comes up, I start to get this feeling of missing my 'almost only sakuraisan playlist' *laughs*
It's also funny how I seem to get into the older V系 bands these days. Paramount example being BUCK-TICK, of course.
Not quite sure why everything is so 'funny', but another funny thing, while watching this, and some other lives by Janne Da Arc -whom I'm not familiar with at all, I only just really
listen to 月光花, that most beautiful song I posted above- ... but I thought "hey, his face... it looks so familiar... where else does he sing... I KNOW that face >.O" and hey. xD Acid Black Cherry? AHAHAHAHAHA! Oooookay. Your dark side is revealed, Mister.
here, I really liked this one, too.
However now I got distracted by the realization of him being in ABC, so uhm. First thing I clicked was this
And my first reaction was "*pupils turn to slits* ... Oh fuck
you and that hair... and those hips... *hiss*" Oh man. Donmai he's a tiny bit older than me and so on. Aren't they all. Alphamegamia at its best 83
Damn, even his way of headbanging is sexy. oO'
But I just realized I got their name wrong. It's Assiddo-burakku
cherry apparently. Not Acid black. >.>
WHICH REMINDS ME! Watch this, seriously xD
Even if you don't understand what he's saying, you'll still understand the video XD I love this. Especially the second guy.
Or well, technically it's the first guy.
XDDDDDDDD Hiisa haisukuuru tiicha! Oh mai goddo!
I also loved this, but for that you'd really have to understand what she's saying.
So enough with the intermission. *goes back to her other youtube tab still open on ABC*
Haha... this one confused me xD At first I concentrated and listened to the lyrics and the melody, and was totally attuned to getting into the ballad-feeling, but then the look they pull off and the way they perform... hehhhhhhhhh? |D I immediately stopped concentrating and just went with it. Although it was a little... weird |D
Well aren't they amazing XD
Maybe I really should get some ABC. When I feel like I need new stuff.
Blessed be the day Gackt floated naked over my computer screen, making me wonder "what is a Gackt?" for if I had never asked that question, I might never have found this particular world of music either 8D
... Blessed and cursed. For what do I see here. How come on the youtube page I'm on... how come there's ... on the side bar... there's only ABC and Janne Da Arc. Except for the very first "suggestion". Featured video, SID. 夏恋. ... Why. -_-'
I remember this sexy piece, I think.
Although if I remember correctly, there was a PV... and apparently it's not on youtube anymore |D Too sexy? Hmm~~~~
And I have to say it again, just to affirm it. His headbanging. It's damn sexy. I like it. Very much. ... yes. *creeeeps* .OH WAIT! WHAT WAS THAT! .............................Okay *clears throat* okay. *watches on*
But that reminds me of something else. A little while ago I read how someone ranted about 'fanservice' and how despicable it is that they're doing "such things only to please the fans". Which I find rather ridiculous. ////ATTENTION! Rant about a rant ensuing!\\\\
For one. How do you know they're "only doing it for the fans" in the first place? Surely they must hate kissing, groping, and generally being all sexy with their bandmates. Of course. Because there's no such thing as feeling, uhm "very good" or "in the mood" while performing on stage. It's a thing of impossibility. Especially as it's so very uncommon in underground scenes of certain countries to not be as uptight about sex and gender. [I totally mean it like that. ... Oh wait, it's called sarcasm.]
Then, yes there are bands who're doing it more than others. In some bands, the members have never even come close enough for even being gently kicked in the arse by a bandmate. In some, they periodically are all french-kissy over another. Neither is a sign for the band being particularly bad or good. There are extremely good bands who seem to enjoy giving some fanservice here and there. There also are some incredible bad bands doing it. Fanservice itself doesn't have much to do with the quality of their music. And only quality will really keep
the fans. The fans, and the artists themselves. Of course, if you truly think that it's only lusty fangirls hoping for a ten-second kiss in two hours of concert who are paying for the tickets, then well... poor, poor musicians who think their music is too bad to gain fans and have to resort to such resources to... Or no wait... Is that really 'musician'?
But c'mon. No one in their right mind will pay for a ticket only because they hope for guys groping each other, while they're not enjoying the music at all. And if you don't enjoy it, how about just shutting up for those moments and letting everyone else enjoy. Including the members, if they so do.
Honestly, if you're too... uptight or whatever, to not be able to tolerate same-sex snogging, you're into the wrong kind of music. You should have noticed by now that it's a more or less frequent occurrence within Visual Kei. If you can't take people being sexual, watch a Justin Bieber concert instead. It might do you good.
Well, I'll shut up about that for now. And just in case, this isn't meant as a personal message to someone specific. The ranter who triggered this doesn't even go here. And that very specific ranter wasn't the first I heard rant, either.
On with the music!
Not sure why when I typed in "awoi", it gave me this
as the very first one... but since it's already there, why not.
Not that I know them. But hey, growling, bass. Teeth. Piercings. Insane laughter. Mmh. Also, the next videos in the suggestions are Awoi's abelcain and Dio's Carry Dawn, haha.
For some reason, ABC made me want to listen to Hyde-san, so here I go.
And that's enough teeth and fangs for today.
Have some recent pictures of my baby.
He tried climbing up the wall on several occasions. Destroying the plant on his way, hahaha...
Curious little buggarrr~ ... ♥
This made me flail. So much. [On the inside, of course. As Mister is pretty unlikely going to approve of flailing directly in front of his nose |D]
Mrrr~ So much. したらな〜
