X JAPAN FILM GIG 93 HOUSE TOUR
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:30:55 AM »
This is a video taken in May 1993 for Film Gig. All X members look happy in this video. I wrote down all the conversations because I was curious to know what they are talking about. I’d like to share it with someone curious about their conversation like me of the past.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9KnbmaRSFc


(in front of Toshl’s house)

TOSHI : Where would you go? Everyone, I’m Toshl from X. I’m going to show each member’s house as a present for fans today. To begin with, this is my house. Feel free to come in.

(in the house)

I live here. But as a vocalist, I stay at the studio almost all day long. Cause this is the period to record vocal now. I’m doing my best to be delivered to everyone as soon as possible. Then, I’m going to member’s houses at once. Let’s go!

(in the car)

I think I came around Hide’s house. Ah? Isn’t he Hide? Hide is over there!

(walking)

I saw the appearance of Hide, but why is he in such a place? HIDE! Ha Ha Ha. I’m going over there right now.

(In the corridor)

It is noisy because of that vacuum cleaner. Can you hear my voice? Can you hear it? You can hear it.
Hide was in a veranda just before.

(knock)

HIDE : You can’t come in on your shoes.
TOSHI : What happened in your room? (Hide comes out)
These are staffs of Film Gig. Hide, you didn’t say hello to everyone.
HIDE : Oh, hi!

(in front of Heath’s house)

TOSHI : Probably, he is practicing hard.
HIDE : He may be practicing the bass making noise.
TOSHI : He must be playing the bass now, bam bam bam bam.

(in Heath’s house)

HIDE : (laughing) He is playing the Famicom.
HEATH : Battle of a man.
TOSHI : Battle of a man?
HEATH : I woke up at half past six in the morning. This is...
TOSHI : This is?
HEATH : Asaren(朝練 : Japanese students’ training related to school clubs)
TOSHI : Are you doing Asaren?
HEATH : This is my way of doing Asaren.
TOSHI : Is that your Asaren? Are you doing it in this position? HIDE, what do you think of it?
HIDE : (murmuring meaningless words and takes Heath’s Famicom)

HEATH : He always takes mine this way.

(on the sofa)

HEATH : This is my house.
TOSHI : This is cool. It is neat as usual. Hide is the most enjoyable among us. Well, a word to those who are watching the Film Gig.
HEATH : Well, I still have not done the live stage, but for now, please be satisfied with film gig this time. See you at live concert next time.

(knock)

TOSHI : Someone came.
HEATH : Who came in this late night?
PATA : OUAAAAAA! This is~
HEATH : Oh, Pata, (shaking hands with the cat) how are you?
PATA : Thanks.
HEATH : You became so big.
TOSHI : Who is this? Today’s special guest.
PATA : Special guest, Kotetsu.
TOSHI : Kotetsu, Kotetsu.
PATA : Yes, (pointing at camera) In this?
TOSHI : (pointing at camera) Now, somewhere in this, there is everyone, Pata.
PATA : On this side? Is anyone there?

(Cat : Meow)

TOSHI : (pointing at camera) Look! Everyone is watching. Hey, hey, hey, in the other side.
PATA : Please enjoy. Thank you very much. I’ll go there soon.
TOSHI : HIDE, 4 members got together. Shall we go to the next?
HIDE : (playing the game) Where are we going?
TOSHI : What? Don’t you know we have another person next. One more person?
HIDE : You mean the princess?
TOSHI : Let’s go the the princess’s palace.
HIDE : (on the phone) Let the car wait.
TOSHI : Car? (holding the phone) This is not connected.
HIDE : It is a cordless phone.
TOSHI : (clap) Is this the most advanced American cordless phone I’ve ever heard?

(Outside)

HIDE : With my mobile phone?
TOSHI : Yes, with your mobile phone. Call a car.
HIDE : (On the phone) (muttering)
TOSHI : Hehehe! Is that the car?
HIDE : This is the car.

(in front of Yoshiki’s house)

TOSHI : Here is it. This is the princess’s house. This is the quite strict place. We can hardly enter the house. (grabbing the handle of the door) Key! Well, if you do something stupid, policeman comes right away.
HIDE : I got it, I got the number.
TOSHI : You got the number?
HIDE : On my mobile phone.
TOSHI : What?
HIDE : With this, with my mobile phone.
TOSHI : Can you open the door with this?
HIDE : Open up!

(in the house)

TOSHI : Wow. This is princess’s house. This is the moment we enter.

(pointing to the sword)

TOSHI : Is this real?
HIDE : It must be real.

(pointing to the violin)

TOSHI : He started to learn violin.
HIDE : Oh, really?
TOSHI : Yes, he let me listen to his playing recently.

(pointing to the piano)

TOSHI : He makes songs there.

(going to the yard)

The princess has even a pool. By the way, recently, here, (Pata is pushing Toshl into the pool) Dangerous! It is dangerous! In the mean time, hey, do you remember the CD? We gave the CD to everyone. We recorded the interviews in Japan. But Yoshiki’s interview was recorded here. 
HIDE : Who interviewed him?
TOSHI : I did.
HIDE : What?

(inside the house)
 
TOSHI : By the way, Hide, did you call Yoshiki a while ago?
HIDE : This house is wide.
TOSHI : Yes, this is wide. Let’s find him.

(bedroom)

TOSHI : This is a bedroom. How is it?
PATA : (lying in bed) This is the feeling!
TOSHI : Princess sleeps here. 
PATA:In this position.
TOSHI:Does the princess sleep like that?
HIDE : Well, there are some fans who wish to go into this bed.
TOSHI : Try the simulation.
HIDE : Just the simulation?
TOSHI : The princess sleeps here all the time.
HIDE : (taking a blanket, in a sticky voice) Come in, honey.
TOSHI : Here, just go inside. (everyone laughs)

(moving)

He is not here. Pa-chan(Pata).
HIDE : He is not here.
TOSHI : Where would he be? Do you know about it, Heath?
HEATH : Unng~
TOSHI : Oh, you know? Unng~?

(kitchen)

PATA : Do you want something to drink?
TOSHI : It is a situation I saw already. There is something.
PATA : Well, that’s fine.

(movement)

TOSHI : HIDE, the guy, the guy decorated it. (moving) Where is he?

(in front of the shower room)

TOSHI : There is a sound of water splashing.
HIDE : Because he likes it.
TOSHI : What?
HIDE : He likes bathing.
TOSHI : This is a sound of a bath. Isn’t it the same situation as the last time?
HIDE : It’s just a feeling.
TOSHI : No way, what if the same thing happens? Now, is this Yoshiki?
HIDE : He...
TOSHI : He...
HIDE : Nakedly...
TOSHI : Nakedly...
HIDE : Exposing the body?

(Toshl tries to open the door of shower room)

Aww, lakeisle, thank you so much! I've been looking for a translation of that clip for ages!  ;D

(c'mon everyone, let's get together and send lakeisle some cookies, he's our only Japanese language consultant, we need to treasure him!)

aww thank youu. I want to hug you! :D

I can't believe Toshi keeps calling Yoshiki Princess. OMFG. I always though Toshi was reserved but he is actually so playful :D

 ;D Thank you so much for this translation! You have worked so hard and it's really great that you are sharing it all with everyone here! Much appreciated!  :D I have always wanted to know what was being said in this clip. I love Hide in this one. Looks like Yoshiki had the princess name for quite a while! ha!

matsumoto,

Thanks for cookies, yumyum  :P :P
It's honor someone calls me Japanese language consultant. Haha. Actually I'm just a beginer though, and I am she. Do you have any clip that needs translation?


Teemeah,

I think Toshl was the the most talkative member of early X. If you watch variety shows in 80's, you will find that Yoshiki, Hide and Taiji don't talk much. They have just rebellious expression on their faces. Pata looks sullen(like he does these days on TV). Toshl was the only member who was friendly and talkative.


Fluffy,

Hide is so adorable, carrying his cell phone in 1993. He's an early adoper.

"hime(姫)" means princess in Japanese. If you listen carefully, you can hear the pronunciation.



magucathy,

Thanks for a box!!!

ohoo, be careful with such an offer :P I think we have tons that we wish were translated :D Do you like translation? I actually do fansubbing (from Korean to Hungarian). We can maybe team up, I can make timed subtitles for the videos and burn them on.

Teemeah,

I'm OK If any of you make subtitles. But I think you have to correct my English sentences a lot before making subtitles. I make tons of grammatical mistakes when I write in English, but it is helpless.  :'( :'( :'(

And I wonder in which clips western fans are interested.

Thank you so much for translating this!
I've been having a devil of a time trying to find an English translation for that clip.

1st request from me.  What is going on, here, or what are they saying? What is this interview about?

Thank you so much, lakeisle.

I can't translate tons of videos. I think I can do 3 clips for the meantime(including LEMONedMe's request).

But, if the clips have Korean subtitles or translations already, it doesn't take much time. So give me the list anyway.

Dear lakeisle,

Take your time with mine. I know there's a lot being said in that video I posted but they're saying a lot and maybe it's some unusual stuff.  Who knows? It puzzled me, though, and made me really want to know what was being said.  I am not in a hurry.  Thank you so much for offering! {{{hugs}}}

What's with Hide's sunglasses during that video? Couldn't the dude decide if he wanted to keep them on or take them off so he just let them sit halfway up his nose?  ;D

LEMONedMe,

It's a clip that I've never seen before, and really interesting. They talk about the concept of HIDE's photos and poems in the photobook. So there are some literary Japanese even though they are talking. I like them. Thank you for letting me know about this clip. So interesting!


matsumoto,

He is showing off his cutting edge fashion style.

I am glad you like the clip, lakeisle.  i knew it was unusual with all hide's elaborate clothing and appliances, for lack of a better word.  I saw they were talking about that book.

Does anyone have that book? I bet it's very expensive if anyone can actually find one for sale, though.

I used to wear mine that way, too, when I was indoors but didn't want to keep mine on, or put them on top of my head which would be impossible for hide with all that hair.  lolol

I have his Visualbum, not sure if it's the same one but I guess not. Bought mine from JapanDiscoveries. The pictures in it are awesome, Hide would have made a great photo model of some sort.

Yea he would have been a great model for something.  I want that book.  Do I want it more than food and other stuff I think I want? LOLOL.  It's not cheap for sure.
