I feel like I have amnesia
But I know it's myself I've lost
I wonder what's happened so far
And what might have been the cost




is music powerful? yes.

...suddenly really liking 80s music. simple but great lyrics.

No, I can't stop talking about music and how much I love it.

Goth night, to me, is about the music first, then the dancing. On a good night they go hand in hand in perfect sync. There's also magic in bringing a friend with you and having your friend enjoy him or herself too. Sometimes you just know that they aren't just saying that the music is great just to humour you.

Last night some idiot guy clocked me in the ear though, and I was like this hurts enough for me to kick you in the nuts, ok' and then his glasses hit me in the face when he was trying to apologize. jfc if I were him I would have felt like a huge failface, way to impress a girl! I love my new madden girl boots though, they are the most comfortable things I own right now *_* Of course, I had to break them in at goth night. Why the hell not.

I love the DJ because he always gives me free passes :D More importantly, he plays Pendulum when I request for it *_* He was also giving out music last night, which I am now listening to. I think the DJ was playing it last night, the transitions are the same =_= It's hard to not associate this type of industrial music and beats with nights and alcohol, but DEMF did a great job of bringing that joy out into the light. I'm kind of nostalgic right now, I was in great company of Ash and V and hell, music in the open is always great.







I've been talking to my mom more these days. Always awkward. She always asks me if I have a boyfriend. Cue major "Oh hell no, mom," and then "You need to meet more people! Expand your social circle!" and me going "I don't like the people I hang out with, none of them interest me that way, okay." I have a serious lack of faith, not that I ever had much idealism for relationships anyway. I don't trust anything that has a dick and moves. Especially in the presence of alcohol. 'I'm not a nice girl you want to know' is a message I try and project. Before I deviate completely from the point, how do you ever talk to your parents about these things? Apparently I'm able to talk to my parents online via chat like we're friends, but I think that's just a result of me being nervous, and when I get like that I just... trample ahead without a brain to mouth filter.

Anyway. I'm suddenly out of things to say.

Actually, it's really hard for me not to talk about how much I love DBSK, wherever I am, at home or at work. Just the other day this Japanese lady told me - "I love this song, I have their Japanese album!" She was a late twenties.early thirties looking lady and my response was just to go "I love them to bits!!!" gushing at her while she walked out the door.

I like that even at work I can connect to people via music, because I have my ipod on the system and people have asked me what is playing, was that a song by a taiwanese artist, who sang that song and such.

I don't think liking boy bands are a bad thing at all in general as long as one has a sensible approach to it. For example, knowing that first things first, these entertainment companies are out for your money. Then after that it is up to you (me) to decide how emotionally involved I want to be. Despite the label 'boyband', not all of them are talentless, good looking (and most of the time debatable), plastic, dolled up boys and girls with dreams of fame. The whole concept of "idols" is that these people set examples to people who follow them, but things have obviously changed because all the groups that are debuting as "idols" are getting younger and younger, with varied concepts etc. I ramble. But I don't think the old definition of "idols" apply to the current generation of pop acts any longer, specifically kpop (because that's all I've been listening to recently, besides my staple of jrock)

Here I arrive at my point - DBSK is not just an idol boy band. I suspect they've long surpassed that and have come out top. I'm barely educated on their fan history but their music, oh god, their music. It makes me feel that despite all the bad reputation that their entertainment company has (and come to light with the current lawsuits) the company has their music production done right. DBSK blends my tastes for jpop and kpop together because they straddle both scenes with the same voices but different styles. Changmin and Jaejoong do the occasional jrock song to keep me happy.

I read this post today about Jaejoong's talent for singing and it made me want to write this post, to document how much awe I have, how much respect I have for Jaejoong as a singer. I mean, I've successfully avoided DBSK since secondary school. Why get into them now? But why miss out on good music and a gorgeous voice?

Being able to understand and really feel music does not only mean knowing how to perform a song, one must also be familiar with the characteristics of the piece.
It is not a matter of flaunting one's singing ability, it is about helping the people who are watching the movie to immerse themselves in the scene and be moved by it. That is what music is.

I'm fucking excited to be seeing HYDE in NYC come October. Here's to hoping L'Arc~en~Ciel will include the US in their comeback tour in 2011. Frankly I much prefer the varied instrumentation that L'Arc~en~Ciel have in their music compared to VAMPS; it keeps me interested for longer, but really, who can resist HYDE screaming I'M A LOVE ADDICT COME LIGHT MY FIREEEE?

guitars are sexy.

hyde is sexy.

life is good? good.

ADDENDUM:


I have an undeniable love for cornrows on hyde. This guy never ages, because this was definitely an interview/photoshoot done in recent years when hyde was doing VAMPS *_*

I've always misheard the lyrics "long way before" as "lonely people" because of the way these boys fail at pronouncing their "f" sounds, but still, it's a gorgeous song. Not surprised from the way the lyrics was written that Yoochun was behind them, and he composed the music with Jaejoong. The live version has still not stopped bringing tears to my eyes; I never want these boys to stop singing. It makes me wish I never stopped the piano, never strayed away from the beauty of making music. Perhaps writing is another way of creating music.

shall we deadly dance with?
beyond your tongue and mine there is the truth


sensual, gorgeous, disturbing, morbid, entrancing. jrock is my alternative to hundred-membered wind orchestras in concert halls. there's something gratifying about feeling the bass resonate its way into your bones.

this was when I started loving him.

the rawness of it moves me to tears.

500 miles

delirious: (love song)
If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Lord I'm one, Lord I'm two, Lord I'm three, Lord I'm four
Lord I'm 500 miles from my home
500 miles, 500 miles, 500 miles, 500 miles
Lord I'm five hundred miles from my home

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way
This a-away, this a-way, this a-way, this a-way
Lord I can't go a-home this a-way

If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

- 500 miles, Peter, Paul & Mary

Human politics, from whispered hushes and distant crushes
mental fits breakin’ pencil tips and inkin’ brushes
simple rushes

and we are so breakable, breakable girls and boys

There's something gorgeous in this song and it's not just the lyrics. The sung words soar in your soul a little and tries to lift your heart a little higher. Even though I've watched the live performances they did and Jay can't really reproduce the same free, breezy feel of the recording (oh stay, stay again), the emotion is still there.

The hope of my redemption
is such that I believe that I am free
To confess would bring me no salvation
for I alone hold the power to forgive me

Of my acts, I will admit, I've no pretensions
I've no regrets for all the things that I have done
My faiths, to me, are as foundations
None has the right to judge my soul but me

There is no going back
No quarter now remains
No return for me, no sanctity
A single chance prevails
The fields behind laid waste
No doubt, no amends to make
at break of day
until the light fails
march ever on

Great are the paths of our creation
that have been made for the brave to see
The fools who would condemn this existence
are as lands to be vanquished and seized

I realize I'm getting caught up in the details of the fabric and forgetting to look at the bigger picture.

Do your job, keep your cool, take it in your stride, think of what you need to do.

if anyone cares, I would like to share this song.

All causes and all effects.
No college shit necessary to acknowledge it.
Some call it love and some call it sex. opposites.
Call it what you want, but with one touch and you’re gone, so call in sick.
Human politics, from whispered hushes and distant crushes.
Mental fits breakin’ pencil tips and inkin’ brushes.
Simple rushes.
God makes man, and this is the devil’s finishing touches.
From dukes to duchesses and kings to queens.
From dust to dust, this is the sinful theme.
The scene for crack fiends and gun-packin’ teens
High on vaccines, magazines and saccharine.
From dukes to duchesses and kings to queens.
From dust to dust, this is the sinful theme.
The scene for crack fiends and gun-packin’ teens
High on vaccines, magazines and saccharine.

Sometimes when I have too many things I want to say, I look for the easier way to express it without having to explain myself.


必要悪 - SID

You, you, I'm taking you along too.

The coffee cup that has cooled down
a little is like a merry-go-round
It mimics our inertia

Let's kiss one more time, and
expose your secret
Beyond your tongue and mine,
there's the truth...

kiss twice, kiss me deadly,
