Taiji / About Taiji and Saipan
« on: November 26, 2011, 07:02:15 PM »
Hi guys! I haven't been around for a while. I've been super busy with school and whatnot.

I have a Tumblr(micro-blogging site) and I recently came across this warning to Taiji fans who are thinking about visiting Saipan as a memorial(for his death):
http://seth0et0holth.tumblr.com/post/13294279715/warning-for-taiji-fans-dont-go-to-saipan
These words are not mine, but I get the feeling that we should stay away from Saipan lol I don't have much to say since I am very young, but I will research this so that I could get a better understanding.
Also for music artists:
http://seth0et0holth.tumblr.com/post/12918360812/a-warning-for-artists-marianas-records-cnmi-saipan

I am posting these links just so that I can spread the word to Taiji fans on the forum. I hope this is useful.

Please tell me if this needs to be moved*

YOSHIKI recently performed the X JAPAN classic [Forever Love] together with violinists at the Wedding of Sumo Wrestler Yokozuna Hakuhouzeki on February 21st.

After 5 o'clock in the afternoon he was introduced as [The friend from X JAPAN, YOSHIKI, who left hurriedly from L.A.] and a number of cheering voices could be heard from the place.

A special stage had been put up from which he greeted the bride and groom. [Hakuhouzeki, Ms Sayoko, all my congratulations to you. This song is my present from me to you.] An uproar went through the crowd, which had gathered around the stage for a moment, when YOSHIKI had sat down in front of the piano. As YOSHIKI performed the song together with a quartet of violinists, the newly wedded couple was visibly moved.

After the performance the two of them also went up on stage to YOSHIKI to also take a commemoration photo shooting while shaking hands with him. In 1998 the groom had been an avid fan ever since the introduction to X JAPAN through his sister and the bride, certainly has now become a fan as well, if her cell phone ring tone of [Forever Love] is any indication

The cristal piano, on which YOSHIKI played at the wedding was also the one he had been using during the last years performance at the concert in TOKYO DOME.

Just recently X JAPAN have been filming their footage for their 5 song videos totaling and amount of 500.000.000 Yen in expense, in Los Angeles, California, USA.

The stage was set to the 13th death anniversary of guitarist HIDE, with his guitar set up and YOSHIKI said [Today, HIDE has been with us the whole time.] As "6 members" of the band the filming had been taking place in the center of Hollywood, making a dream come true like that. [I am moved for the sake of TOSHI, as well as for HIDE. It is like a drama. Only the scenes and the measures are different.] YOSHIKI stated as the tears on his cheeks reflected a million different emotions.

The shoot, which took place from January 6th to the 14th, was made for the new song "Jade", which is also connected to the "revival of "Kurenai", somewhat of a new song in a wider perspective as well." These songs were followed by "Rusty Nail", "ENDLESS RAIN" and "I.V.".

YOSHIKI, who is an avid fan of Loas Angeles explained deeply moved: „In elementary school, when TOSHI and I founded our band, we played for the first time at the Chiba-Ken City Center. This has been such a long time, and now we are in Hollywood. There are certain aesthetics of the moment, as well as there are in the continuation of things." To perform in Hollywood had also been a dream of HIDE and YOSHIKI emphasized "X JAPAN are not 5 people, we are 6 now." And hot tears could be seen, spilling from his eyes.

Taiji / Taiji at Higuchi Munetaka memorial concert
« on: November 24, 2009, 03:53:34 AM »
Concert Held to Mourn Death of Higuchi Munetaka
2009-11-23
DUSTAR-3 / LOUDNESS / Janne Da Arc / X JAPAN


 It has nearly been a year since LOUDNESS drummer Higuchi Munetaka passed away on November 30th 2008. Quite a few drummers, such as X JAPAN member YOSHIKI, cite Higuchi as their inspiration. He had a great influence on many artists, and the shock of his death and extent of his impact could still be felt months after his death. The first year anniversary concert was held to pass on his spirit to younger generations and beyond.
 
 All the musicians who guest-starred in the event had been close to Higuchi. They included: Inoue Shunji (LAZY), Okuda Tamio, Kageyama Hironobu (LAZY), Sawada Taiji, Suganuma Kozo, HIMAWARI (DUSTAR-3), shuji (Janne Da Arc), and Shinya. The show started 40 minutes behind schedule, but as soon as the curtains parted cheers erupted from the crowd. The 5 guest drummers started a drum session, and the video screen onstage showed footage of Higuchi. Although Higuchi wasn't physically there, everyone seemed to be awed by the ferociousness that could be felt from the video. The artists who had gathered that day said, "We hope we can make this an annual event!" The audience applauded and roared approvingly. No doubt the fans will enjoy seeing Higuchi 'perform' again next year.

Other Bands / This is dedecated to Jasmine You
« on: October 23, 2009, 04:30:43 AM »
I've written a story that included Jasmine. It's actually for school, and I put Jasmine in there since I was listening to Versailles. So in this story, she is an angel from a heavenly kingdom. Uh..........the story is supposed to be about a superhero that saves the world from drugs..... Warning: At the end, it says that Jasmine was the savior, I swear that 99.5% of this in fictional. Some of it is X inspired, obviously. I'm not saying that Jasmine is the savior or whatever. So no threat comments from catholics. So tell me how you like it!! Plus if this is in the wrong spot, please place it in the correct spot. Also, this story comes from a 7th grader who reads alot (or used to). Enjoy!! Tell me what you think of it, what did you hate? What did you like?



   One day, an angel/superhero named Jasmine, who lived in a heavenly kingdom named Arion, was studying a mysterious planet called Earth for her exams. She was surprised to hear that a large number of people died from deadly, foul smelling drugs. She was also puzzled because of the fact that the people knew that drugs were dangerous, yet they still consume it without a thought. She felt sorry for them. Jasmine couldn’t stop thinking about Earth all day. That night, she had a dream, a vision about the chaotic planet. People had rusty chains tied around their ankles. They were hopelessly trapped, the chains held them in place.
   The next morning, she awoke and flew to Earth. She landed in a place called Los Angeles, California. She noticed in her school books she saw beautiful roses where they mentioned good things about Earth. Unfortunately, the once beautiful red roses turned into cold blue roses. The planet was losing their vibrant colors of life. Jasmine happened to be on a red carpet at a movie premiere, but the red carpet was a worn purple. The sleazy paparazzi were all over the trashy Hollywood stars. She has never seen anything so horrid in her eternal life! And so, with a graceful wave of her hand, she turned the drug addicts into stunning stars, the aged carpet turned bright red. The people were amazed at her actions. Before they could say a word, she escaped.
   Jasmine continued to heal the world. The wooden brown cherry blossoms in Japan turned a bright, soft pink, like cotton candy. The burned spagetti noodles in Italy were cooked to perfection, instead of being neglected caused by drugs. The blue sky was no longer gray due to the smoke from the horrid cigarettes. That sulfur smell that engulfed the Earth disappeared, but then came back as a sweet floral scent. People no longer chewed tobacco, but instead chewed sugar-free gum. The people adored Jasmine for her intelligence and her beauty. “Thank you,” they said, and Jasmine replied with a shiny smile. She had to return to Arion, but she left a present which contained a picture of her. If anybody was tempted to take drugs again, they would look at her picture, and remember what Jasmine did for them. Earth was finally at peace, and Jasmine could fly back to the deep blue sky. Jasmine’s face was all over television, the newspapers, magazines, everywhere in public. They marked a feast day for her on August 9th.  She was remembered for her good deeds. She was an inspiration to the world, and Jasmine was their savior.




At my school, it is Drug Free Week. Basically, we learn about drugs and how they are not healthy and all................................We learn this every year......Very boring..

[music] YOSHIKI and GLAY Meet in Los Angeles!
2009-10-21
GLAY / X JAPAN


X JAPAN leader YOSHIKI, GLAY leader TAKURO and vocalist TERU met up with each other in Los Angeles for the first time in 11 years. The artists then revealed some of their most closely kept secrets.

The reunion was part of a project for a TV program called 'SONGS' broadcast by NHK on October 21st. GLAY is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. They decided to look back at their roots by visiting YOSHIKI, who produced the band's debut single 'RAIN'.
Los Angeles was a special place for the three since it was there that they recorded 'RAIN'. All three artists said their meeting each other was a 'miracle'. They were visibly excited and were ready to talk about some topics they've never revealed before. YOSHIKI said "Sometimes it's very hard to be an artist. Even after we had decided to stop performing as X JAPAN, we still couldn't breach our contract so I had to continue editing TOSHI's songs. It nearly drove me crazy." TERU talked about recording 'RAIN'. "Our very first recording in Los Angeles was the most difficult time in our career. I was so nervous I couldn't sing properly...GLAY once nearly broke up too." TAKURO added his own shocking revelation. "When we gradually started to perform independently we may have caused trouble for YOSHIKI-san. We might have offended him. I've always wanted to apologize for that, but I was too afraid to meet him." In the program they also performed 'RAIN' on TV for the first time in 15 years.



Eh.....nothing much really.......

Toshi / Toshi to collaborate with french pianist Cyprien Katsaris
« on: October 18, 2009, 07:58:10 PM »
 TOSHI attended the press conference for his collaborative concert with French pianist Cyprien Katsaris titled ‘芸術、その無限のパワー / Geijutsu, sono Mugen no Power [lit. ‘The Unlimited Power of Art']'.

 TOSHI told reporters his impressions of Katsaris. “He is a superb pianist. I've always wanted to work with him. It's not just because of his skills. I sense something deep within his piano-playing.” They haven't decided on the songs they will play, but they will improvise during the music. Katsaris said “TOSHI will sing with his great voice. I will follow his singing and play on the fly. We'll create art at every moment.”

 TOSHI said “I'm quite confident about the upcoming concert. I'm going to enjoy performing.”
‘芸術、その無限のパワー / Geijutsu, sono Mugen no Power' will take place tomorrow on October 19th.

Cyprien's playing is kinda like Yoshiki being a drama queen during Art of Life lives, but his playing is fast and rapid,  and also amazingly quick.

General chat / This REALLY upset me.....
« on: October 18, 2009, 12:23:01 AM »
This idiotic person was bashing on the X-Japan (most of all Yoshiki) for postponing the Korea lives.

http://www.youtube.com/user/NeverForgiveXJAPAN

I don't know about you guys, but this fuckin' pissed me off. I was basically angry and ripping paper (sorry about wasting trees..) I cannot believe that people are actually like that. I mean, I know I would be a bit disappointed if X-Japan were coming to my place then suddenly canceled it...but this is plain ignorance.. I'm sorry if this thread is in the wrong place. Don't fuck with X-Japan, why don't you fuck yourself? Fuck you.

Toshi / TOSHI to Perform Christmas Concert at Shinagawa Stellar Ball!
« on: October 02, 2009, 12:58:32 AM »

Get fired up with rock music in the afternoon, and then immerse yourself in our music's healing embrace at night. Come over and enjoy the day with us!” Tickets will go on sale from October 10th.

The summit-level session of the United Nations Security Council held on September 24
made me hopeful that perhaps the world can shift to an amazing new direction.


Nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation, a future without nuclear weapons…
for a long time, I’ve felt that Japan
 – the only country in the world that has been the victim of a nuclear bomb –
should lead the world towards abolishing nuclear weapons.
I’m entirely in favor of the five declarations that Prime Minister Hatoyama
presented at the United Nations General Assembly.
Regarding those dealing with disarmament and non-proliferation,
I was especially impressed by the lofty goal of dealing with climate change
and assistance for the Afghanistan issue.
I wasn’t necessarily a passionate supporter of the Democrats,
but right now I’m in favor of most of the declarations made by the new administration.
In the future, I hope that they can take these high ideals and turn them into reality.


Japan should be proud of its thoughts and intentions and share them with the world.
I think that the meaning and importance of Japan’s three antinuclear principles
and Article Nine of the constitution will only grow from here on out.
The chains of nuclear power and weapons gain strength endlessly,
and I strongly feel that the world must graduate from this fear.


In any case, I’m interested in the actions of the new administration and the world at large.

Toshi / T Earth has a new guitarist and bassist!
« on: August 01, 2009, 04:19:52 PM »
TOSHI with T-EARTH’ is TOSHI’s solo endeavor that had started last August.
TOSHI decided on a new member, and announced him at a press conference!
Already in March of this year the band’s average age had dropped of a sheer cliff when they had welcomed 12 year old drummer RIKU.
Now 17 year old guitarist RYO will join the team! Alongside RYO, 24 year old bassist KAIN also became part of the band!
The average age continues to go lower!

TOSHI seemed confident about his new team. “Not only are they young, they’re also the right age to be my kids. But the future rests on their shoulders. They’re a force to be reckoned with.”
In addition to his solo career, let’s hope that he will continue to be active as X JAPAN too!


28

X JAPAN members will become game characters in the online game ‘キャラクター大作戦 / CHARACTER WARS’!
X JAPAN leader YOSHIKI’s character will appear first!
His character is scheduled to become available from July 18th 18:00, and TOSHI and HIDE’s characters will also be released in August.

The game world is based on ‘Record of Three Kingdoms’ [三国志; a historical text of ancient China chronicling the rivalries of the three kingdoms of Cao Wei, Shu Han, and Eastern Wu during A.D.189-280]. It is an action game in which players team up with friends and attack the opponents’ territories.
For the design of YOSHIKI’s character the game developers discussed with YOSHIKI such things as the physique and clothes worn by him.
The game developer commented “We were requested that the character wear a white shirt. For the character’s physique we wanted to realistically portray YOSHIKI-san’s abs, so we beefed him up. Afterwards YOSHIKI-san complained to us ‘My abs aren’t THAT great.’” His asking for a white shirt seems quintessentially YOSHIKI.

Also, YOSHIKI’s character has his own set of special moves!
Currently they include ‘Drum Cymbal Attack’, ‘Drum 2 Bass Attack’ and more.
For the full particulars wait for its release!

The developers are planning on incorporating additional suggestions from YOSHIKI about his character, like having it wear a wedding dress, and arming it with a katana blade.

Users can play the game free of charge. But to use YOSHIKI’s character players will have to pay 2000 yen.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to conquer the (game) world with YOSHIKI’s.



That's sounds fun...
