Yoshiki / Alive, moving
« on: September 02, 2008, 02:11:10 PM »
Here, I am bringing peace into your troubled hearts.
Yoshiki leaving Hollywood party "Help As One" on August 31st. He looks pretty fine... either that or the hologram technique has gotten loads better lately.  ;)

Toshi / Toshi likes his bread
« on: June 25, 2008, 06:56:15 AM »
From reading Toshi's blog one can see that he loves his food - why, most of the entries look like a leaf torn out of a gourment magazine. :D
Anyway, there is a proof that Toshi has always liked food - here he spends a good time with Tamori discussing his favourite type of pan (well, bread - but Japanese bread is not really what I would call "bread" - more like a kind of pastry which can has many flavours).

I really love how serious he can get over a curry bread! (06:49~)

Offtopic / Pin-up Girls
« on: June 10, 2008, 12:42:40 PM »
Anybody except me likes classic pin-up girls? I've been harbouring a secret crush on this kind of art - even attempting to do my own sometimes soon. I think most of the pictures were really pleasant and humorous (even if often in a somewhat sexist way).

Here is one of my favourites - "Rare Edition" by Gil Elvgren.

Toshi / Toshi's Japanese Blog (30.5.2008)
« on: May 30, 2008, 08:36:45 AM »
Toshi's today's blog is cute - he's pleased over the number of comments for his last topic and he shares the encouraging comment (i.e. encouraging people to buy Earth in the Dark :)) posted by Heath (who notes he himself reads Toshi's blog).
Toshi also says that they will be enjoying a yaki-niku party together later this night and posts a picture of himself and Heath. :D

Okay, I'll start with a sentimental - yet very comforting one.  :)

General chat / X & Sims
« on: April 11, 2008, 07:46:06 PM »
Ahem... I like Sims 2 quite a lot and some time ago I made X-Japan members as Sims, so I thought I might show you some of the snapshots. They are not too good, but I'm storing some other snapshots elsewhere and I cannot remember where. :x
Also, I don't really have any good Pata pictures, as I couldn't find proper hair for him.  :?

So, here's Yoshiki - typical, I think. :)



Here he's playing while Toshi tickles guitar.




And here just relaxing. Toshi is talking to someone, maybe Taiji.



Here's Taiji - preparing himself a drink.



And hide, doing the very same...



And Heath... geez, X-Japan drink too much!  :P



And finally Heath watching some fishies (Taiji in background).



So, all in all nothing much - I will try finding some better pictures.
Does anybody have X in Sims 2 too? If yes, please share pictures and experience! My Yoshiki is always sitting by the piano, not paying much attention to his surroundings, while Toshi is a cleaning freak and Taiji tends to brawl with neighbours.  :P

EDITED: Probably should have made clear that I created all of these Sims myself EXCEPT Yoshiki - I used a mesh done by some talented member of www.modthesims2.com and only modified the facial features a bit, as I think the original was neat but too flattering.  :)

HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY TO HEATH!  :D

Yoshiki / Very Short Yoshiki Interview
« on: January 03, 2008, 09:37:29 AM »
http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=ErDdlOCSJoU

Seems they caught him at the airport. :P

Anyway, they asked Yoshiki about the reuinon and he replied that they would like to hold a concert in spring. The reporter asked whether it will be in April and Yoshiki answered that "Um, something like that, yeah." Then the obnoxious woman tried to make him say whether he has plans to get married, to which Yoshiki (looking uncomfortable, imo :) replied "Not yet." The woman persisted and asked what does he mean by "not yet", to which Yoshiki replied in the sense that "not yet" is simply "not yet" and hurried off.
 :D

Offtopic / Any New Year Resolutions?
« on: December 31, 2007, 01:22:23 PM »
I don't really make them, usually...
But this time I feel like it. I made many and some of them are plain silly, but I hope to stick to them. For more than a week. :D

So (not in order of importance):

1. Will study regularly every day again - three months of blissful wasting my free time (ie. time spent commuting to work and my evenings and weekends) were enough, it's time to start preparing for PhD entrance exams.
2. Will conquer stupid thyroid and get back to S size.
3. Will be more patient and nicer to everybody (especially Dana) and will stop cursing so much.
4. Won't be foolhardy and jumping on conclusions.
5. Will stop devouring so much of raw salmon.
6. Will be more careful with our finances (or we won't be able to go and see the possible X-Japan concert).
7. Will clean more.
8. Will make Dana clean more.
9. Will read all the Russians finally.
10. Won't purposely develop phobias.

There. :)

Other Bands / Belle died
« on: December 12, 2007, 01:39:41 PM »
Uh. It's probably not appropriate, posting this right after the message about Soichiro Umemura's death, but well...

Not really news, as it has been all over the net, but Gackt's doggie Belle (9) died December 8th (probably). Seems Gackt has been in Shanghai at that time, so it was his sister who was there with the poor thing when she died.

I'm not Gackt's fan and do not really enjoy his trivia, but I always kind of admired the pretty doggie (and the cat, too). And I understand how sad it is when a beloved pet dies. So, my deepest sympathy to Gackt. :(

Other Bands / Soichiro Umemura died
« on: December 12, 2007, 12:59:18 PM »
It seems that vocalist of Tokyo Yankees, Soichiro Umemura, died suddenly in early morning hours on Tuesday, December 11th, at the age of 41.
Umemura (or Ume-chan, as he was affectionately called by his fans) was a friend of Yoshiki (Tokyo Yankees were also signed under Extasy Records).

 :(

Other Bands / TOP 10 Favourite Beatles Songs
« on: December 03, 2007, 11:21:06 AM »
Now this one had to come one day...  :D

Personally, I have been a great Beatles fan since my childhood and I love majority of their songs. In fact, as with many other bands, it's pretty difficult to pick just one, hence Top 10.


So, my favourites (more or less in this order) would be:

1.In My Life
2.Strawberry Fields
3.If I fell
4.Should Have Known Better
5.You've Got to Hide your Love Away
6.Eleanor Rigby
7.You're Gonna Lose that Girl
8.I'm so tired
9.Gettin Better
10.Eight Days a Week

Toshi / Your favourite Toshi song (non X-Japan)
« on: November 21, 2007, 08:22:12 PM »
My two all-time favourites are Always and Kimi wa inai ka.

The latter is simply beautiful - Toshi's voice is wonderful- and extremely moving.
And the former is -in my opinion- the best what you can get from J-Pop. Plus, somehow it feels very christmasy now.   :P

Yoshiki / Happy 42nd Birthday!

I believe it's already November 20th in Japan, so happy birthday and many safe returns to Yoshiki!!!  :D

News / Concert in February?
« on: November 09, 2007, 01:24:09 PM »
I've seen a short notice on the Japanese Endless Dream, saying there was an article in Tokyo Sports which  supposedly says that there could be a Tokyo Dome concert in February and then during the year a tour around Japan. But there wasn't any link, so I couldn't really read that damned tabloid myself. Darkcat or anybody else, have you read it?  :D

News / X-Japan on Radio
« on: November 06, 2007, 08:52:18 AM »
Seems X-Japan were on the radio (Nippon Broadcasting) tonight (00:00-01:00). But as I could not listen to it, I had no idea what it was like.
 :P

Albums/Singles / Say Anything
« on: November 04, 2007, 03:59:37 PM »
I has always loved it quite a lot, but somehow I think this is one of the best versions I have ever seen:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnzsTEWPvZs

Toshi at his best, in my opinion. And I especially enjoy the part akari no kieta on the stage (03:20), I think it's a really nice effect.  :D

Heath / Heath's Myspace Gone?

Eh... perhaps I have gone temporarily blind (afterall, my eyes are bad enough), but has Heath's Myspace account been deleted?  :shock:

Yoshiki / Yoshiki on Mezamashi Terebi (30/10)
« on: October 30, 2007, 12:31:13 PM »
http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20071030-00000000-oric-ent

Here's a brief report:

Basically nothing new - Yoshiki again repeated that this time he would like X-Japan to end beautifully and that their activities together will be for a shorter rather than longer period.
He also noted that as for Toshi, the reunion is touching, as they are childhood friends.
There's also comment on how they included hide's melodies into I.V., as X is unthinkable without him.

Albums/Singles / I.V.
« on: October 24, 2007, 10:27:33 AM »
I know, I know. It's too early. But from what I have heard so far, I really adore this song. :D
And I wanted to ask... has anybody managed to (at least partly) make out the lyrics? I think it would be interesting to try and gather it, so that we could compare it when we know the real thing.
All I can make out are really just short bits like "my love" and "standing here beside me" (yeah, I haven't really been trying much so far)  :P

Happy 42nd birthday, Toshi!

I hope too see You on stage soon! :D


(BTW, on Wednesday there's a Toshi birthday concert and a party held in Sunshine Aoyama hotel - http://www.hotel-sunshineaoyama.co.jp/)

News / Flash news concerning reunion
« on: September 26, 2007, 12:03:20 PM »
This is rather vague, but Flash magazine has another article about X-reunion, featuring Yoshiki and Sugizo (it might be that Sugizo will be a guitarist, but I hope not).
However, I have not found the article on the net, so I cannot say more for the moment. Once I manage to find it, I will report its contents. Also, if somebody has any info, share it with us.  :D
