aka why I could possibly never genuinely befriend elitist/purist and rabid fans of any genre or fandom. I thought my British Born Chinese ethnicity had too many predicaments. What about personal interests and passions? T_T

this is why I avoid daily fandom contributions )

2012 music

There are different music genres being discussed here.

2012 albums and songs I liked )
Ever since I saw Zero at Hyper Japan or sort of got eyep0rned by him I promised myself I'd sit down to listen to D'espairsRay properly. Might go for Ricky, Shun and Kazuya's previous bands. Not too fond of the Nagoya Kei genre tbh but will see how much my mind can absorb.

I'm on the first compilation album now. Truthfully I still get "hmmm" whenever a song has nothing but growls and screams that are so common in doom metal/black metal. But when Hizumi is actually singing...it's really good. I have this kind of feeling with Dir en grey's newer music. Sure I know it's part of experimenting but if I'm going to listen to some songs and resonate with the lyrics I'd like to know what is being said. Growling does go well when the song speeds up and you want to headbang like hell but seriously singing your emotions out so the crowd can feel what you feel is also a plus.

I just remembered D'espairsRay did play in London and the UK a few times. One venue I remember hearing they played at was Alexandra Palace which is like 8 mins from where I live. Very convenient to get to by train though you have to walk for a bit after you arrive at the station. I think that venue has some personal significance as that was the first time I ever went to a gig and the first time I saw Franz Ferdinand.

My wallpaper changes every hour but it ranges from Klaus/Joseph Morgan, Jersey Boys London cast, Dir en grey, Mark Kanemura, various Korean dramas and X Japan :D

I suck at singing (tried to do a vocal challenge and oh it was hard D:)

However just for the hell of it and to scare the hell out of relatives or friends who have never heard me sing before it would probably be X Japan songs like Forever Love or Endless Rain or Nightwish's Ever Dream.

  • 21:07:34: Trying to make screencaps but it's hard because the scenes change too quick for me to grap shots of each member.
