^ And i would call 'the sequence matter' is relatively small.
Again, I value report that's less 'unimportant details' or stuff about the reporter going around.

Opinion and Information stand on their own, who says not? Therefore as a report, the more information it gives and the less reporter's opinions, the better it is. Or so called being objective. (except if the opinion is needed to strengthen the fact in a APPROPRIATE portion).

I like JAME's 15th Sept report. it's short and to the point.

As long as the info is there without loads of fangirlish sauce, I could not care less.

And mistakes happen in press - they happened in JRR and other official sources, too. 
Agree with Anna, as long as the mistakes are relatively small, it can  be tolerated.

Informative report with less of personal opinions, I value that more.

good idea with setting up a forum or web for South Pacific fan base.
Not necessarily have to be ad free website, at the beginning I don't mind if we use the freebie one. Later we'll upgrade, just at the meantime, gathering the fans in OZ and NZ is more important.
So who's gonna set this up?

thanks darkcat for the photo.
For some reasons, I really like that photo... the hide cosplayer seemed to cry on Yoshiki's shoulder. Looks beautiful.

^ a sensation picked by X Japan's management?
Well for sure it's not Yoshiki's doing, cuz he mentioned it in the conference in HK, it's his management thingy xD

Photos of Yoshiki in his jet arriving Hong Kong.

In the conference, he mentioned about some possible future tours in US, Madison and Germany.
Also mentioned, probably these tours will be the last world tours X Japan has.

I'm using google translation. If someone else is able to translate better, pls do so, cuz I'm not sure with the "these tours will be the last world tours X Japan has."

Despite the delay, Taiwanese fans were ready to welcome Yoshiki.

Yoshiki / Re: Yoshiki in the top ten of Best Rock Drummers!

Hey, i understand wht u mean. everything's cool. cheers ;)

General chat / Re: "To Hide"...do you know this song?
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:16:47 PM »
Kimi wa inai ka was released in July 1998, it is quite probable that the song and text was composed even before hide died
second this.

jigokugal, thanks for the list..

I've edited Natalie Wilde as Sex and Religion singer.
I'm very curious with Asphyxia.. he ever mentioned this song in the blog.

The madness came from here
As others have said, he's not a particularly creative drummer, but I'll take Yoshiki's passion, aggression, and drama over anyone's "impressive technical chops", any day.

Yoshiki / Re: Yoshiki in the top ten of Best Rock Drummers!
« on: August 14, 2008, 02:34:03 PM »
Oh wow he is on no 1 now. What a surprise. Last time I saw he was on the 4th.
Hooray to X Freaks for voting Yoshiki.
He may not the best drummer in the world, but for me personally, he deserves the NUMBER ONE seat on any drummer list.

Yoshiki / Re: Sobbings in Without You
« on: August 08, 2008, 06:34:05 AM »
You r right, I've listened to it carefully, indeed I heard Yoshiki's sighing / sobbing, not just regular shifting.
Those are at 9.52, 9.58, 10.44-10.51, 12.37 and 12.44-12.52
The seconds are taken from Without You Eternal Melody II.

He mentioned about crying while recording this in his blog that he even slipped his fingers because of tears dropped on the piano keys and retook alot.

Sigh, this song is even more emotional and sadder for me now...

Wikipedia / Re: WTF?
« on: July 30, 2008, 10:27:56 AM »
The thing is, we don't know if that so called deputy of Yoshiki is truly official.
It's true that in the past Yoshiki was very secretive on any detailed information about him, however, nowadays such info is found pretty randomly in couple of sources, including watashi wa akiramenai.
So, i'm not convinced enough that the removal order of date of birth actually came from his mouth.
In Yoshiki's myspace, his age or date of birth is never mentioned, though I know what you meant at the first post is 'wikipedia' instead of 'myspace'

Shooot! BaDil, you are a triple insane X Freak!
Great poem!
How long did you spend to create this? You should send this to Yoshiki, I wonder how he reacts if he reads this.

General chat / the best X Japan Tokyo Dome stage design
« on: June 30, 2008, 03:45:47 PM »
Last Live stage design is the best one for me.
Those spider legs looking structures combined with the lightings.
And they even moved. Amazing.

Yoshiki / What music did Yoshiki listen to growing up/influences?
« on: June 26, 2008, 09:17:00 AM »
I'd say lots of musicians and bands influence Yoshiki.

Particular classical musicians/ pianists/ composers whose songs were ever played by Yoshiki or integrated to his own music:
- Alive: Beethoven, Moonlight Sonata (intro part)
- Rose of Pain: Bach, Fugue in G minor
- AoL : Schubert, Symphony no 8, Unfinished
- drum solo: Sergei Rachmaninoff, op 18 c minor
- he played Turkish March (mozart) couple of times & Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky) and other classical pieces.

Look into Yoshiki Selection & Yoshiki Selection II, I'm sure those songs pretty much influence him.

I can't imagine the effort they put together.
FYI, the weather at that time wasn't good. It's winter and was drizzling.

« on: June 14, 2008, 12:08:11 PM »
Look at these guys! Their make ups are freaking awesome, same level as make ups for Hollywood movies.
It's a Zombie Shuffle. Melbourne today.
Pretty much people dressed as zombies walked through main pedestrians area in Center Business District for one and half hours.
No riots, only zombies looking for fresh brains to feed themselves xD

Their rules:
"Obey the road rules! …we don't want any zombies getting killed (again) by cars/trams/etc.

"NO intentional frightening of children/the elderly/animals. Seriously. Just because you are a zombie, doesn't mean you must also be a d***head."
