chyeah )
As much as I like live music, I seem to be a serious masochistic and tolerate the pain of being in the pit. Oh joy. But comparing my experiences between the Jrock and British/Scandinavian gigs I've been to in the past...I picked up some small things.

I am no Sherlock but I try. Cut for weird babbling )
I'm living in lucid dreams...uh huh yeah.. uh huh yeah...

The song I'm referring to is this one by Franz Ferdinand (I went to this iTunes gig, sadly did not get on camera despite being near the barrier). Wow I haven't listened to them in a long time but I've been having too many lucid dreams lately. Bigbang thanks for making me fangirl so much. I blame stress mostly.

I really have to stop freaking out over G-Dragon visiting London recently (I am not joking I accidentally got overexcited while waiting for my delayed train at King's Cross and was checking Twitter last Thursday with Big Bang music playing in my earphones). He's in Paris now for various fashion shows. I cannot stalk him if he's shopping in London again. No matter how tempted I am. I just won't do it.

If it was a genuine passing by or an accidental bump in the shoulder as we walk in different directions then that's something else. Or if he saw me first and something bizarre occurred afterwards...yeah not happening let's just stop thinking about this XD Fangirl dreaming going too far now. Actually I probably wouldn't recognise him if he's wearing lots of clothes or changes his hair colour again. Do you know how many Asians/fellow yellows shop in London?

GD and/or his stylists go to all these shops I've never heard of. I find this educational. I'm learning more about my London without realising it. I should thank GD ^_^;;
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'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.
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Yeah quite a few people from conventions and signing events. Too bad some of the encounters consisted of quickly get your item signed then dash off as soon as your turn was done but there were a few 'famous' people who were really nice it took me by surprise

A few people I met include:

- Nightwish (signing sesion. So quick but... Tuomas smiled at me. He was the first person I said hi to and he's so hot)

- Apocalyptica (meet and greet at Kentish Town gig in November 2010. Had more interaction with Paavo)

- James Kyson Lee at Collectormania 12

- Keeley Hawes at LFCC 2009

- Eve Myles at LFCC 2009

- Tom Felton at Collectormania 15

- Dean Andrews at Collectormania 14

- James & Oliver Phelps at LFCC 2009

- Kerry Ellis (signing session)

- The Overtones (signing session at Selfridges. Think I nearly went into a fit because they were rather nice... and looked dashing in their suits)

- Alex Kapranos and Bob Hardy from Franz Ferdinand after their Hammersmith gig in March 2009. Alex was a chatty, polite guy.

Comment that you want to do this meme, and I'll give you a color that I think represents you, and then you list ten things you like in that color or ten things it reminds you of!

[ profile] danigirl1992 provided me with the colour orange

I think I may have cheated a bit xD

1) Arisugawa Juri ~ I haven't seen many Animanga girls or guys who can make orange curls look stylish. Juri as a character was tough and rather intimidating on the outside but had a broken heart underneath which lead her to believe miracles were impossible. Possibly my favourite girl from Shoujo Kakumei Utena though I didn't bother finish the Anime or Manga.

2) Clementines ~ I hope this still counts as it is orange in colour and the fruit orange xD I like small clementines when they're sweet and juicy. Nom nom.

3) Schuldig ~ oh helloooo Schwarz's resident bad boy. He was the most used 'slut' in Weiss Kreuz fanfiction. Those were the days. Actually his hair is apparently red in the Anime series but it looks more orange at times so not sure if I could put him here.

4) + 5) animated tigers like Shere Kahn or Tigger ~ hope it's ok to put two together lol. Two different kinds of tigers. One's quite nasty whilst the other is eccentric.

6) my jumper ~ it's a really thick jumper from M & S too hehe. Always keeps me warm during the winter

7) Franz Ferdinand ~ the logo of their first album especially :D But their single covers and various photoshoots have the guys in a bit of an orange colour

8) Alex Kapranos ~ he would wear smart orange shirts or an orange tie to go with his black shirt. It was hot. He's opted for another kind of shirt these days but I think the orange shirt does appear now and then.

9) my old glasses case as that is a transparent orange colour

10) my old 'naf naf' pencil case with an orange lid. It has funky pictures that look handdrawn but the orange colour itself isn't hard to miss.

  • 07:52:15: Logged into Leather Hips after months away. Heh so the pics have now made me hungry again...and I just had breakfast
  • 08:04:49: I'm constantly in a bubble of thought when it comes to real life. I do want to go back in time to change things. It's risky but...
  • 08:05:48: ... I feel like I've nothing to lose. I am not attached or committed to a lot of things and have not achieved anything outstanding at all
  • 10:08:24: @AlionaVilani mwahaha indeed ;D
  • 10:38:35: Ugh got an overdue meeting with colleague and supervisor after lunch. The worse that can happen is bitchiness on workload
  • 11:25:54: Saw a cheap payg phone but it is very metallic pink. If i can tolerate the pink i might go for that once i switch networks
  • 14:29:23: Blah meeting was delayed for tomorrow instead. All that waiting around was a waste of time.
  • 14:30:04: Disappointed that I got a withheld phone call that wasn't job related. So much for hoping for an interview as much as I loathe them
  • 19:08:32: Just watched @tarjaofficial ' s new MV for Until My Last Breath. I'm pretty certain it's the same beach used in I Feel Immortal...
  • 19:12:02: Also, she's wearing the same robes... surely. Oh well. The song however is brilliant.
  • 20:40:24: @MatthewKoon hey don't panic ok? Good luck
  • 21:05:25: I find @direngrey 's mv for The Final stylish, a far cry from the totally OTT/crazy gore stuff they normally create in their vids.
  • 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.

  • 22:23:20: That said, I still want a girl to win this season. If it isn't the girl I want I suspect it would be either Nicole or Pamela.
  • 22:23:43: Bet women want Evan to win. He is good and his skating is <3 but... just want a female to win after a long absence lah D:
  • 22:24:10: Also apply that little peeve to SCD too. Hello, we need a female winner soon please. Alesha was amazing in 2007 show
