Kirito and otou-san? O_____o

Listening to: Seruroido (Celluloid) by PIERROT

 

KIRITO!!! *dies* okay, I'm overreacting, but I just recently discovered something seriously surprising...Kirito's birthday is February 24, 1972 (no, that's NOT the big discovery...) AND my FATHER's birthday is February 24, 196(this last number has been censored to protect my dad's privacy...and stuff...)!!! O______o call me stupid for not realizing Kirito's birthday is on the same day as my Dad's, but...okay fine, I didn't notice at all...but this is so weird >_______> *checks window* (XP) this is too much *hyperventilates* now I can celebrate Kirito's birthday on the same day as my Dad's ♥ yeah...[/weird news]

well, I'm going away for the summer, mainly to see my dad, my grandma - who still has a brain tumor T____T - and, my poor grandpa...I really want to visit Japan too though...my goal right now is to buy the Kirito photobook and sniff it like a drug every day, buy Kyo's two poem books - the first one is Japanese, the second one is English (I think) - and attempt to finish the fanfiction I'm doing (already got 4 chapters written) by getting inspiration from them ♥ I've got to admit, I am in love with Kyo's voice. he can hit so many differnt chords it's not funny O____o personally, Kyo doesn't scare me, but he does give me chills when he does that laughing/crying baby thing (in 'mazohyst of decadence' especially) *hates children* I've watched the first two days of Diru's BLITZ 5DAYS tour and I think Kyo's starting to make me swoon ♥ he is so adorable, especially when he blew that kiss near the end of the second day! <3 I still don't really like him putting all that stuff on himself during the first day, but the blood was okay ^___^ I wish he wore his golden contacts with the brown/black borders more often, it makes him look more like a kitty XD besides that, let's report on my Kirito shrine ♥ first, I've finished the 'basic introduction' where I list lots of random gotta-know info (from the size of his foot to the number of tattoos and piercings he has) and the 'voices' page where I identified his different singing voices X3 I personally love the hoarse-growl the most, especially when he sings it in CREATURE *loves that song* I'm not sure how long it would take me to finish the rest though since I'm leaving my computer (and 900+ mp3s~) for 2 months T______T I'll probably die without Kirito in my ear everyday *drowns in tears* I was thinking of making a Kyo shrine to be the 'twin site' for my Kirito shrine, but I'm not sure I'll have enough time, going into 11th grade and all >____> maybe I should try and get a job while I'm in China...my mom says I should be a translator for the 2008 Olympics in China, I'd agree as long as I don't have to read or write =.= on the bright side, my Dad promised to spend more time with us. he's agreed to play squash with me ^____^ *loves squash even though her mom thinks her arms are getting too thick* I want to get muscles like Kirito's ♥ and Kyo's ♥ XD speaking of Kyo's arms, he's got really detailed tattoos, it's like a giant mass of black if you look at it from afar, but if you look closely, it's really pretty *____*

just as a last note, I'm on a wallpaper making spree and I'm in need of other test subjects Jrockers to use. anybody suggest anything? I've already made Kirito (PIERROT), Kyo (Dir en grey), and Ruki (Gazette) ^_______^ I'm posting them up later on my graphics journal (hopefully)

getting lost in a map...

Listening to: THE DREAM THAT WARPED by PIERROT

 

...is pretty much unlikely, but I adored this photo so I kinda went along with the theme >____> I just finished my Math exam yesterday, it was quite easy despite what I had thought, I actually forgot how to do a question (more like I tend to do more than asked) before I realized I was thinking too much and the question only needed one equation instead of two =.= going to sleep at 11 PM the day before the 8:30 AM exam is a bad thing...I have an art exam tomorrow (thought it's not really an 'exam', more like an opinion essay kinda thingy) and after that, I'm FREE~!!!

besides drooling over Kirito for the past few days, I've also rediscovered some artists that were neglected before but are now among my favorites: Dong Bang Shin Ki (TVXQ!), F.I.R., Jay Chou, and Simple Plan. I've actually been purposely avoiding new Japanese music because I want to give other languages a chance and I found some great tunes ^___^ First, Dong Bang Shin Ki are pretty much your typical Korean boy-band (I still can't really tell them apart musically from Shinhwa...), and the guys are gorgeous, especially Hero, those pretty, pretty eyes *swoon* Max scares me though, he smiles a bit too often (Hug PV anyone?) I'm paranoid...there's also Xiah (who I want to skin alive for bleaching his hair blond...), U-Know (who looks like a Chinese actor I know), and Micky (who also looks like a Chinese actor I know) I really adore Hero in the Hug PV, he looks sooo sweet with those roses ♥ okay, enough about looks, lets get to the music...I suggest Tri-Angle for those who have never heard it, it's a great pop-rock song that is performed by DBSK (I'm too lazy to type out the whole thing), BoA, and The TRAX, all of them are part of the SM company. Million Men also has a nice beat to it, they focus on dance music a lot, and they could dance oh so very well X3 They also released some Japanese singles, like Stay With Me Tonight and Try My Love both very beautiful and may I mention that their English is pronounced pretty well? It's not w-inds. Engrish, but not quite 'proper' English either, kinda in between. If you listen to Shinhwa, you'll probably see their voices are pretty much similar, but DBSK has got less ballads than Shinhwa. Everyone go get a piece of this delicious K-pop cake Xd

Hero ~the gorgeous eyes~ Max ~the burning smile~ Xiah ~the looks-better-without-blond-hair dude~ U-Know ~the Chinese-actor-look-alike #1~ Micky ~the Chinese-actor-look-alike #2~

next up is F.I.R., a Chinese (Mandarin) alternative/everything-there-is band. their lead vocal is a woman while the other two band members are males (I don't know their names XP) they do a lot of awesome music-genre-blending like rock with ballad, disco with ballad, pop with rock, some random blues with rock and lots of other orchestral music pieces mixed with rock/pop. I really like their style, it's almost like Mayday, except it's a woman singing. The lyrics are awesome too, though there's some bad English grammer used in some songs *coughFlyAwaycough* I reccommend songs like Ci Niao (Piercing Bird), Ba Ai Fang Kai (Let Go of Love), and Wu Xian (Unlimited). I usually listen to them when I'm in a slouchy mood, their songs are great for waking up your system ^____^ no pictures of them since they're not exactly eyecandy (mainly because the vocalist is a female) >___>

then comes Jay Chou, whom I thought was an old geezer but turned out to be one of the most popular young artists in China =__=U his voice is pretty nice, though sometimes he kinda looses air in the middle of high pitched sections or long choruses, but he's still pretty good. I have two LIVE mp3s from his Uncomparable 2004 Tour, with 6 songs all together. I really like his LIVE voice better than his recorded voice, plus, he's really adorable when he interacts with the crowd, like teasing them and saying "Sorry, you guys are out of luck, I'm going to sing the sing-along by myself"...he also made up some random lyrics for one of his songs, adding lines like "Thank you for coming to see me, I am touched and very happy~" the crowd practically screamed their lungs out at that >____> some songs I reccommend: Kai Bu Liao Kou (Can't Say It), Ni Ting De Dao (Only You Can Hear), Zui Hou De Zhan Yi (The Last Battle) and Long Zhang (Dragon's Claw) - just on an extra note, Jay's actually released his own brand of mp3 player, that's how famous he is ^___^U (you can see the player at YesAsia.com) - also no pic of him because I'm not exactly attracted to his looks and I'm too lazy XP

ahh...which leaves Simple Plan...I think they're the first English band I've chosen to rant about *shrugs* firstly, I don't know their names...only that they're from Montreal, Canada. Their songs are pretty much rock and alternative I guess. I really like the vocals done and the lyrics. The only thing I'm kind of disappointed in is the fact that they sort of repeat the same idea over and over again in some songs, just changing the wording a bit. It's sort of like the over-use of 'tears' in English songs or 'namida' in Japanese (listen to the songs you have, I bet 7/10 have the word 'namida' in them >____>) but I do enjoy some of the other songs they have like God Must Hate Me, Everytime, Shut Up!, My Alien (really cute~), You Don't Mean Anything, and Addicted. Their style is pretty much pretty unique like F.I.R.'s, but in the way that rock music can differ from soft to hard (they don't do ear-spliting guitar riffs like Dir en grey or anything) worth checking out if you need some English music to keep your brain from thinking in foreign languages that you don't understand *whistles innocently*

I just wanted to mention that I've changed winamp skins and wallpapers, as well as subscribed to AudioScrobbler (seems fun...) I'm thinking of putting my fanlistings up for adoption though, I'm losing the anime-fangirl-virus very quickly...ah well, I'm off to watch more PVs X3 ja!

wishful thinking brings so much disappointment...but I'm willing to sacrafice ^____^ I'm in the process of making a Kirito winamp skin (because there are absolutely NO TRACES of any already existing...) and I've recently completed a Kirito and Kyo wallpaper that I will post up later...oh and before I forget, visit Human Gate my new graphics journal, I just recently went on a Kirito-avatar spree and will upload a lot of my new (and way better-looking than the ones I already have up) creations soon ♥ ohohoh!!! AND Kirito's album Hameln is available for preorder on CDJapan!!! it's official release date as of now is August 3rd and his single DOOR's release date has been pushed up to be 3 days earlier than before and is coming out July 3rd!!!

Kirito's 'DOOR' PV~~~! ♥

Listening to: Kirito - DOOR

 

DOOR Single Limited Edition Cover

 

 

♥♥ \♥___♥/ ♥♥

 

 

All hail the mighty Kirito!

He is the most gorgeous thing alive ♥3♥ I really am itching to buy this now, I've already downloaded the PV for DOOR that was shown on TV and the ripped mp3 version of said video, but I still want to buy the single just to support my awesome Kirito-sama~~~! (plus, I still don't have the c/w track >___>)

I really wish the PV had more colours to it though, but Kirito's half-open shirt is enough to keep me nosebleeding for the next few weeks *swoons* if Kirito with sexy shirt isn't enough, then Kirito playing guitar and singing at the same time is...ahh~~~!

I also read somewhere that Kirito's album is costing him guitars since he bought 3 new guitars for the first 3 tracks XD what an adorable dork ♥ ever notice ♥s keep popping up every time I mention Kirito (♥)? that's because I ♥ him with all my ♥ *gets stabbed by fangirl haters*

I've got a wishlist now:

1. Meet Kirito (♥) and/or get all the magazines he's ever appeared in

2. Buy Kirito's (♥) debut single, 'DOOR'

3. Finish my sorry attempt of a translation for Kirito's (♥) song 'DOOR' (including kanji, romanji and English)

4. Write a fanfiction that's Kirito (♥) and Kyo centered, but is not overly cliche or PWP...or graphic in any sexual sense

5. Attempt to paint Kirito (♥) in his Neogurotesuku (or Smiley Skeleton) outfit

6. Attend Kirito's (♥) first solo live tour 'The Fef of Hamelin' (even though it's in August and I probably won't be able to T____T *heart bleeds*)

7. Slim down a bit so I can cosplay the overly stick-skinny Kirito (♥) better...

8. Get a job just so I can spend it all on Kirito (♥) merchandise XD

9. Create a new layout that features no one but Kirito (♥) just so I can admire him 24/7

10. Finish the shrine I am making dedicated to Kirito (♥) that will house a large collection of my Kirito (♥) rants *gets stabbed again*

 

now, to rant about the PV...basically, there isn't much to it, it isn't 'in-your-face', but I'm still satisfied (for now *maniacal laugh*) it basically starts off with him walking up some stairs, then you see his (awesomely black) guitar being played. after that, you get the wicked chair scene where he sits on the chair and sings ♥ the chair itself is pretty cool too, it's kind of like a candleabra shape...which then transits into him singing while playing the guitar *squee* and transits back into the guitar & sing scene before transiting back AGAIN into the chair scene...that's when the colour seeps back in and he is shown in a white shirt lying on a bed *dirty thoughts* >____> on the bed, he seems to try to get up, but can't and falls back (awww, poor Kiri-sama)...more scenes of the struggle and some random (but cool-looking) staticy TV...after a while the TV shows him playing guitar & singing (sadly in black-and-white with static to boot)...he also shivers a bit when the scene changes back to colour and the bed (makes me wanna glomp him~~~)...back to the chair and guitar transitions...then he FINALLY manages to get up and shows this adorable sleepy/tired/sad face ♥ >___< ♥ as if that's not enough, the chorus picks up and he picks at his guitar harder for the upbeat melody...there's also this short scene of him covering his mouth and looking like he's in great pain (T______T)...after that, some addicting guitar playing before Kirito-in-colour stands up and pushes open this door with square holes in it...some random clock/TV/guitar-playing scenes later, you get to see his pretty white outfit in whole (it's actually just a white hoodie with matching pants, but anything worn by Kirito is enough to make me swoon ♥)...more depressing-Kirito where he covers his mouth, puts his hand on his head, and some other confusing acts of Kirito-ness before he starts smoking XD Kirito + cigar = insanely sexy...more guitar-pounding, singing-in-chair, sad-face-making, emotional-singing, sexy-chest-showing, somehow-magically-returning-to-bed, somehow-returning-to-bed-and-then-opening-door-again, a few let's-trash-my-almost-empty-living-room before the chair & guitar sequence once again returns...then somehow, he once again returns to that nice bed and angsts, gets up in frustration, walks slowly as he threatens the door and then pushing the door open (for the third time) to reveal some sort of light-of-heaven...the guitar stops playing here as he puts the back of his hand up to his mouth, which then fades to white, which fades to black again and to the scene at the beginning where he's walking up the stairs...all in all, full of Kirito and his chest, don't forget the chest ♥ goodness~~~!

for leechers, you can find the PV at Tonberry, watch it then go buy the single, it comes out July 6~~~

So in other words, my life can be pretty much summed up to equal KIRITO (♥) this obsession is my favorite drug and I'm quite happy with my current state thank-you-very-much-fangirl-haters XP

KOHTA's 30 birthday! and my Diru rant....

Listening to: THE FIRST CRY IN HADES (GUILTY) by PIERROT

 

yupyup! it's the 30 birthday of KOHTA, bassist of the awesome band PIERROT! he's turning 30 (so unbelievable he's 30 already...)!
KOHTA (PIERROT)
I really wanna hug him, especially seeing him with his doggie during that ZY photoshoot (sooo cute~~~)

yea, I know I'm late for the Diru rant...I also know no one reads this...but I'm going to rant anyways...so here goes:
introductions first! Kyo is vocalist/lyricallist, Kaoru is guitarist/leader, Die is guitarist, Toshiya is bassist, and Shinya is drums...I'm sure most people already know that, and since they're a visual kei band, I've made pics of them in and out of drag their costumes:
Kyo (Vocals) Kaoru (Guitar) Die (Guitar) Toshiya (Bass) Shinya (Drums)
to say the least, Kyo's definitely my favorite. I have a thing for dorks who act tough on stage (think Kirito...) ^____^ since I haven't really been into Diru (okay, Dir en grey for those who still haven't caught on...) for long enough, I'm still not that familiar with them, but what I know I will relentlessly shove into your faces >=D Kyo's the dorky vocalist (who's adorably adorable in an adorable way when he's offstage...waiiii~~~) who writes lyrics for all (?) of Diru's songs - and vows to never write a happy ending for a song (but who needs a cliche happy ending when you have wicked music? not me XP), onstage, he's all about 'scaring' his fans (or in some cases, 'entertaining' them) by covering his body in various gross (in the cool way) makeup that makes him look like a zombie/piece of rotten meat/etc. and/or emitting liquids such as 'blood' and 'slug stew'...he also does some physical damage to himself onstage (real damage and not those fake scars celebrities get to look cool *grumbles*) like slamming his microphone against his chest and drawing blood (aww...looks painful Kyo-chan...) he also hates being called 'cute' or 'Kyo-chan' (oops...my bad *snicker*) the most obvious thing about him is his various piercings all over his face (most of them look quite painful), some under his lower lip, some on his nose, some on his eyebrows, etc...his singing voice is really deep and soothing when he sings slow songs, but he can also make it screechy when he does his screaming vocals ♥ the reason I'm rambling on about Kyo is because I honestly have not much interest the other members *gets mauled over by angry Diru fans* okay...so maybe they are 'interesting', but I'm infatuated with Kirito (PIERROT) and Kyo for the most part...I'll still rant about what little I know about the others...Kaoru's the guitarist-and-leader-dude who makes decisions and such for the band, he's also deemed the 'scary' one (though Kyo's costumes are WAY more scary) of the band, I think he's the 'father' figure (just like TAKEO is for PIERROT) then there's Die, the hunky guitarist whose smile can make you melt ♥ even though I am not obsessed in him in any way, he's still very dreamy (especially with the short red hair he had for a while *____*), Die and Kaoru are best friends too ^___^ Toshiya is the...erm...'flirty' bassist who loves to show off his looks (which are something to brag about *___*) and looks good in drag as no one else can XD he's also got really cute crooked teeth and a really nice laugh *swoon* then comes Shinya, about the first drummer in any Jrock band I know who is the most feminine member O____o he's got like a tiny body, but wicked muscles to have beat the rythmn needed for Diru's hard songs, all in all, he's an enigma and doesn't talk often, he's also the one to wear drag most often (even after their indies days...) in my opinion, I don't like Shinya-in-drag as much as Shinya-as-man because Shinya-in-drag is really convincing and makes him look a bit TOO MUCH like a girl >____> no offense to Shinya himself of course...

after introducing members, here are some songs I reccommend with all my ♥ :
Akuro no Oka - a really sweet slow song that picks up somewhere in the middle with a nice drum beat in the background and lovely guitars accompanied by Kyo's 'soft voice' that's gentle and strong at the same time, makes me wanna cry...sorta - ain't afraid to die - the twin song to Akura no Oka, with the same sad theme and this time, Kyo's vocals are really something, it's emotional and fades in and out at times, the beat is very slow, but serves the theme well, the PV was really beautiful *____* - embryo - "my sweet mother...deadly sweet mother" after those lyrics, who wouldn't love this song? Kyo does some slow 'rapping' in the beginning in his soft voice that picks up after a while into a sad, deep chorus, I love the way the guitars sound like high pitched pianos ^____^ - FILTH - okay, so the PV was slightly disturbing...but not as disturbing as OBSCURE >__> I really like the effects Kyo does to his voice, there's a lot of growling and voice distortion in this, so if that's your cup of tea, download "FIL~TH HI, FIL~TH HI" - Mr.NEWSMAN - I love this song, it's soo synthsized-ish and pure bouncy (in my opinion, anything fast-paced and involves cool guitar lines is bouncy XP) and the chorus is really deep and flowing X3 the PV was cute too...Kyo hates newsmen *snickers* - Yokan - my FAVORITE Diru song, and not because the PV was...interesting...because there's less distorted voice things, I love Kyo's un-distorted voice, the chorus' really catchy, it's almost like a 'normal' mainstream Jrock song, but still has a distinct Diru feel (probably induced by Kyo's lovable voice ♥) I've still got 5 days of their Blitz 5Days tour to watch XD so far, I don't like Kyo's gross-stuff-spitting much, but I'm sure I'll get used to it for the sake of Diru in my ♥ (that's competing with PIERROT for first place X3)

on that note, I'm off to see if there's any PIERROT PVs I HAVEN'T downloaded...I've already got their ENTIRE discography except COCOON, which is ironic since I've got like 2 LIVEs of it and it's PV, but not the mp3 =.= seriously...oh well, worship the Kirito and Kyo who are my GODS...nyah, I think I'm getting addicted to Kyo x Kirito fanfiction *____* even if it's friendly (or in some cases, hatred) interaction, I'd love to read any fanfics about them...maybe because for some reason, the only person I could think of to 'dominate' Kirito is Kyo...even though Kyo's 3 years younger than Kirito...me and my ROGGIKU XP
