(no subject)

Hi to new readers of this lj! If you've come here for posts on some particular subject, all I ask is that you please don't expect much. I'm sort of in the middle of a transitionary phase, only I don't know where I'm coming from or where I'm going, so mostly this journal lately is one big spazzing out. I hope you guys feel welcome and comfortable here anyway, and please feel free to ask questions or tell me about yourselves, or, you know, whatever. :)

and now, on to the J-rock.

  • Somehow during the past two months I've gone from cringing whenever I hear L'Arc~en~Ciel (after, like, at least a year of longstanding dislike) to kind of grudgingly agreeing that they have decent songs, to totally falling in fucking love with "Neo Universe" and "Still I'm With You," to thinking "OH THANK GOD IT'S HYDE" whenever I hear him. Collapse )

    I actually really do think that Hyde has a beautiful voice. He just..... usually has terrible songs? Except, apparently, when they're not terrible and I suddenly love them? Please help me. and by help me, i mean, please give me more solo-hyde. :|

    Anyway, here is Roentgen Stories (change extension to .rar). 79mb. Download and enjoy.

  • There's this chick, Shiina Ringo? She sounds like she should be in a Japanese musical. If they ever make Ariel! The Musical, I've found my little mermaid. I've been trying to get Sam to listen to this for a week and I bet she still hasn't. Fuck you, Sam, you're missing out on what is obviously the greatest song of all time. I have no idea who this person is or where I found her, but I have like, seven songs by her and they clearly aren't enough.

  • Dear m-flo, Collapse )

    *By the way, I've been eagerly looking without much success for Ketsumeishi downloads recently, and would be willing to bribe anyone out there who is hoarding their stash. You'd think a band with the #2 song in Japan in 2005 would be providing more FREE THINGS FOR ME, but alas, they are not. I wanted to include my collection of Ketsumeishi in this post, but there's not really enough of it to put it here. Maybe next week. P.S. Have I mentioned they sound just like Yellow Cherry?

    Last week on this journal, we talked about Harry Potter, Nobuta slash, Bob Dylan, and Hikago. What shall we talk about this week? Does the Real Face dvd mean they're bringing Jin back? Are Alanis's lady lumps in fact lovely? Should I cut my hair to look like Ban's from Getbackers?

    Happy Easter, everyone. Let today be a day of renewed faith and miracles for all of us.
