The above gif seems much more appropriate than I thought...

Dear X Freaks here is something for you to discuss! Since our dear Sue (pt_93) keeps molesting Yoshiki on various platforms, he eventually decided to answer her about one of the most asked questions here on xfreaks.



Thoughts? Feelings? Let them all out. I wanna hear.

According to this, never

All lyrics in Art if Life too. I just couldn’t pick just one.

Toshi - Simplicity. I discovered this lately and it’s genius 😂
Since I don’t feel like doing anything today
Why don’t I just forget about time and take a nap

Dream Theater - Voices
I'm kneeling on the floor
Staring at the wall
Like the spider in the window
I wish that I could speak
Is there fantasy in refuge?
God in politicians?
Should I turn on my religion?
These demons in my head tell me to

Porcupine Tree - The Sound of Muzak
Now the sound of music
Comes in silver pills
Engineered to suit you
Building cheaper thrills
The music of rebellion
Makes you want to rage
But it's made by millionaires
Who are nearly twice your age

Hello   :)

So, on Tuesday my dad had surgery. He broke his arm really badly and it was a complicated surgery but it went well and he’s going to recover. Right now I’m just home with him making sure he has what he needs, my mon had to go do something today. He’s going to be in pain for some more days snd the workouts he needs to do are painful too.

Work is going really well. My boss asked me if I was interested in participating in a research paper with him and a phd student (my boss has a phd in engineering and is a university professor), and apparently he’d like me to be in more of that in the future, which is great for the path I want to pursue. Also, there’s a project that only he can work on due to privacy reason but he was allowed to choose one more person to work on it and he said he thought about me and asked me if I wanted to do it. Besides, I got a 35% raise and now I can buy more useless X Japan stuff.

At last, I just want to let you all know that I got married a couple of weeks ago. Toshi and I will send a private jet to pick you all up for the X Japan World Tour 2060, be ready!

Forum Games / Re: What NON X Japan song are you listening to?
« on: February 09, 2019, 09:26:21 PM »
Right now, ‘39 by Queen, for some reason I rediscovered it lately and I’ve listening to it a lot.

Recently, I’ve been listening to Steven Wilson, mainly his albums ‘To The Bone’ and ‘Hand. Cannot. Erase’. Can’t recommend one song, you have to listen to the album 😄

When I was in middle school I loved Harder to Breath by Maroon 5, I’ve been listening to the Songs About Jane album the last couple of days. Don’t judge me  8)

I still don't understand AKB48 tbh, I gave up trying a long time ago, I just accept it now LOL All I know is that Toshi covered one of their songs and it was lovely.

Anyway, it was a very interesting read! Thank you, this makes me want to go to Japan even more haha seems like the stereotypes exist for a reason... they are real lol

I love this song, seriously I think it's really good. I like how Yoshiki stepped out of his comfort zone in the piano, it's not his typical style and Hyde sounds pretty good too.

I bought it on iTunes and the physical copy too  8)

He meant THIS performance with Yoshiki, Foreign Sand in a big music event in Japan. Toshi did background vocals. You can see Toshi and Yoshiki performing the last song with the rest lf the artists, surprisingly Yoshiki played the keytar lol

wow - seriously - anyone who doesn't bash Yoshiki without mercy is a Yoshiki clone for you?
 ::) ::) ::)

I was kidding, tho.

When Coachella was announced, it was sold out too. What’s the difference? Besides, there’re many other rock / metal festivals than Wacken. I would prefer just an X concert but festivals are a really good way to get exposure, a lot of bands do it and work out well for them.
And apparently, Yoshiki rejected an invitation to Hellfest a few years ago.

Many bands were that big in the US in their prime, like Queen. Still, I don’t understand why Yoshiki would consider more important playing for 150 people at Coachella than 10.000 people at MSG a few years back.

Sometimes it is all about expore.
Coachella is an international festival which has been partly lifestreamed.
So maybe not that many were standing physically in front of the stage but the show could by watched by millions on youtube.

Yoshiki, is that you?? Again lurking in here?

They were still live-streaming Beyoncé at the same time, most people were there. I know some people that did get into them because of Coachella but MSG seems way more important, I know for a fact about some people that went to see them out of curiosity so i don’t see much difference

MSG has capacity of 20.000 people for concerts. I know they filled at least half of it, so 10.000 isn’t too crazy.

I would say the worst part of this fanbase (that didnt try to kill themselves) are the delusional people that think Yoshiki can do no wrong.

Teemeah left a while ago but she is much more critical of Yoshiki now. At least she didn’t call anyone names

They didn’t just sell their part of X Japan so they wouldn’t have to promote, you literally made that up. It wasn’t as single as that, 2009 was a very bad year, even Heath was almost out of the band.

Yes, they all did their job because they go to the concerts and recorded the album. In Japan they are usually there in interviews, at least Sugizo and Toshi but since they don’t OWN X Japan, I’m pretty sure they can’t just go create random X Japan events or stuff. I have seen english interviews of Toshi snd Sugizo but there is NOTHING to promote now, what are they going to promote? No tour, no album.

Toshi cooks but he also releases 38472949104 things a year. He is allowed to do things while X Japan is doing NOTHING at all, which is what they do 95% of the time. Maybe if Toshi and Yoshiki switched places X Japan would release music and play, like a band is supposed to do.

Everyone did their part for the album. Yoshiki is just holding it hostage, let me repeat his own words: “I just can’t release it”.

After Yoshiki surgery, Toshi and Sugizo stepped up and did all the song arrangements and everything related to the concerts and it turned out pretty well. They did it because Yoshiki couldn’t, if not he’d do his way. HE said himself how HE decided to change the whole Wembley setlist the morning of the concert, HE said he told the other members “I decided to change it. It’s this”, he clearly gives no space to the other members.

Nobody is hating on Yoshiki, it’s all criticism based on facts. Returner, you, on the other hand, are hating on the other members for no reason other than to defend Yoshiki. You’re just a blind fangirl.

Joker already said everything else I think on the matter.

EDIT: Sugizo and Toshl release new music constantly, I’m pretty sure they would like to write for X Japan. Some Toshi songs sound more X Japan than current X Japan.

I think it’s very rude to assume they don’t give 100%. All of them have put the last 12 years of their life into recording the album, it’s not only yoshiki’s album, it’s other people’s effort and he is wasting it. In conversations between Yoshiki, Sugizo and Toshi is very obvious that YOSHIKI is the one holding back the album, they keep asking him stuff like “Yoshiki, can we please release the album this year?”

Sugizo does many things and he literally runs back to X Japan whenever Yoshiki decides he wants to stop fooling around like a Kardashian. No matter how busy he is, he is always there. What does Yoshiki do that he is SOOOO busy that he can’t sleep? Literally everyone else does 1000x more things. X Japan never does anything, he never does anything either.

IT’S BEEN 12 YEARS! What’s the excuse for Violet UK? It’s been 19 years. Who is to blame but Yoshiki? Exact same thing.

I love X Japan. I love Yoshiki, I really do but that doesn’t mean I am blind. I’m not hating on Yoshiki, what makes me upset are the Yoshiki apologists, more than Yoshiki himself.

P.S2: The others members can’t try if X Japan isn’t actually doing anything.

ahh I see. I'm also very interested in mythology, I hope you can start your norwegian venture soon!

Okay, now about LingoDeer, finally. I tried all the free lessons I could and the thing is, *I* am not very good with these apps, I feel for an absolute beginner is better than nothing but I wouldn't be able to learn this way but this is just my perspective. I feel like it's too unstructured and I think you should have a little more structure when you're learning something like japanese, for example, I noticed in the first lesson they'd throw in kanjis before you even had the chance to study kanji and I think stuff like that can throw people off. Besides you have to pay to get most of it. Then again, maybe I'm just biased  :-X

Anyway, I think a better alternative is to use other resources online, which are free. Anki, or your prefered flashcard app, is a good way to learn kanji and some vocabulary, there're already some very good anki packs online. Also books and other things you can use. I will leave a few links here with a HUGE amount of resources

I don’t see any problem with the lower key, the performances were still very good, Rusty Nail at the Dream Festival is one of the best I’ve seen. Everyone does that at some point and it’s understandable. Pata unable to play solos properly anymore is more concerning IMO.

Agree about the rest. I guess.
