John Lewis Oxford Circus {10 December 2011}

This was with the alternative Frankie Valli - Jon Lee who used to be in S Club 7.

Medley {Sherry, Walk Like A Man, Big Girls Don't Cry and Bye Bye Baby}


Ideal Home Show {March 2012}

Medley {Sherry, Walk Like A Man, Big Girls Don't Cry and Bye Bye Baby}

The main West End cast attended this :)


[poor Ryan had microphone issues, even during the soundcheck and right at the beginning of the show when he started singing Can't Take My Eyes Off You. Great microphone switch during Beggin' though]

Already provided links to these albums on my main blogger account as well as Twitter but thought I'd share them here. I'm rarely happy with how my photos turn out though these ones are definitely an exception *_*

Here's the link to my photos from the Ideal Home Show [March 2012] . Jersey Boys did a little medley on the catwalk before the sports fashion show.

Got mixed photos from West End Live 2012. Sunday had slightly better photos but my view was as always completely blocked off. Didn't help people had their arms waving or had big heads, though the latter isn't their fault.

Managed a few Jersey Boys pics though. Way better than the previous day where I had no good view of the stage at all. Voila

Kpop is coming

Dec. 8th, 2011 10:28 am
vash_chan: (Buffy & Eric)
Been reading a lot of Manga lately. Shouldn't read too many different series in one go. All I have right now is Black Butler, Ouran High School Host Club and Absolute Boyfriend. Out of these titles I definitely like Black Butler and Ouran. Black Butler is still going so I won't rush with that series.

On the subject of Kpop, I recently discovered that a Central London HMV store are starting to sell physical copies of Kpop albums. Will have to go see what is available as I am going to Central London this Saturday anyway (going to try to catch Jersey Boys singing in department store). I remember seeing one or two Jpop CDs a very long time ago in HMV Piccadilly Circus store. They had Gackt, BoA and Hamasaki Ayumi from what my memory tells me. I think one band that might have trouble finding a specific shelf is Dir en grey as I've seen them in the World Music section and another store had them in the metal area. Either way I think it's great that Kpop is starting to surface into the public eye through HMV. It will probably appeal to RnB and hip hop fans in the UK more than Otakus who have dug deep into Animanga, Jpop and Jrock.

I still think Jrock (and I guess Jpop) is going to have a difficult time being taken seriously and remain underground, accessible to those who have that interest and who stumble across it through the power of the web or word of mouth. It just saddens me how people mock the very idea of Visual Kei or how Japanese metalheads can't rock out like their favourite bands from this side of the globe. That's cultural division for you.

I was reading through old posts and remember I wrote about the BBC board. My previous post about a thread in regards to the Korean wave and how popular it was. The rather annoying elitism in the posts was a reminder of why I have this ongoing grudge against the Kpop fandom which has easily caught up with the same leve of insanity as Jrock fandom drama.
[Error: unknown template qotd]

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
My first Overtones gig

Given how LJ is playing up, I thought I'd try to update using email instead. I've managed to read some of your updates, f-list but LJ has not been kind in allowing me to comment properly. Frustrating days.

  • 21:49 @ladygaga When you sing Edge Of Glory with just the piano, it can make me very tearful. The lyrics reach out to the listener more deeply #

WEL 2011 pics

Jun. 23rd, 2011 09:25 pm
vash_chan: (smiling Nine/Rose)
Finally uploaded all my pics

Saturday and Sunday


TARDIS was spotted in Trafalgar Square. I also saw a Ten and Five cosplayer as well :) The guy cosplaying Ten looked exactly like David.

There was also a B-Boy demo in London.

Mother Nature unleashed herself today on West End Live day 1. We all got attacked by hailstones during the Jersey Boys slot. It all started from the LND!Phantom too awwww.

Absolutely <3'd Million Dollar Quartet, Wicked, We Will Rock You and of course Jersey Boys. I should've taken more pics of Chicago. Damn those male dancers were lush :')

I had a pretty rubbish view from Trafalgar Square. I didn't take a gamble and gone to sit on the steps. Still in the process of sorting out my crappy pics but managed to get vids like this We Will Rock You from We Will Rock You. Everyone was singing along to this \m/

Also went to a Jersey Boys lunchtime performance when they were in HMV Oxford Street on Friday so I was able to get a half day off. Could only manage two clips as my view was blocked so much with other head shots. Blah.

Sherry and Beggin' I didn't get the entire medley because of a poor view. Though if you wanted the entire medley I managed to get that from last year's West End Live :D I think at this point I may as well add Jersey Boys as a tag for prevoius posts if I keep rambling on about that musical. It's ridiculous.
