Was planning on doing like three posts within the last week and a half but 1) work and 2) I’ve been really lazy. So please forgive me and read about/listen to these songs that I love at the moment.
Also before we get to the songs, I’ve decided that I’ll post links to download the songs that I list on my SOTM posts because I figure, if it were me and I’d heard a song on a blog that I really liked that I would want them to post a link so I could put said song on my iPod. So that’s what I’m going to do from now on.
Back home in Louisiana. Glad to see my babies(my dogs), but I’m missing Florida already.
For people who live in the U.S., I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I feel so bad because I did a post on the 4th and forgot to wish Jin and especially GACKT a happy birthday. 27 and 38….wow. (and Canadians too! Canada’s independence day was like a week before right?)
Bought a shit ton of stuff while I was there…I’m so broke right now. Gonna have to wait until next week to order Ayu’s mini-album.
This post ended up being a little longer than I wanted it to be, because I ended up rambling on the Namie section. Blegh. Sorry.
So, The MTV Music Japan Aid aired last weekend. I watched the performances of course and was slightly disappointed. Though really not too much because majority of the people they had as performers aren’t that great at performing anyway. But I expected them to do better than they did. Here my thoughts of (some of) the performances, along with the performances themsleves:
This is totally random but, I was a huge bandwagon bitch.
Yes. Yes I was.
I got into Japanese music when I was 13 and I said all that usual weeaboo/Koreaboo shit about how American music sucks and all they talk about is this, this, and that and Japanese music was the best thing in the entire world. I said it mainly because, where I was going for news and music, people were saying similar things, so I jumped onto what they were saying.
I stopped that shit quick once my brother (who got me into Japanese music btw) told me about myself lol
…And I am ashamed to admit this, but I also hated Ayu (yes, you read that right) because I was a Namie and Utada fan first and we all know their fans hate Ayu and I jumped on that bandwagon of hating her…but I saw the light. THANK GOD. Forgive me Goddess Ayu.
Why did I say all of this?
Because I see it with Asian pop fans all of the time, a lot more than usual.
It makes me wonder if they’ll ever grow out of that (hating every other country’s music if it isn’t Jpop, Kpop, Cpop etc etc) like I did, or if they’ll just keep thinking that way? I know everytime I think about my weeaboo stage, I cringe.
Anyway, it’s 6:20 in the morning and I haven’t been to bed yet, so let me get this post out really quick
I don’t feel like typing out all about my life at the moment so I’ll just say, that my birthday is on Sunday~!!!
Onto the post (MBLAQ, SNSD, MIKA NAKASHIMA, NAMIE, AND BIGBANG)
OMG OMG OMG. Ayu and GACKT are following each other on twitter~!! This is totally relevant to my interests!
I never thought GACKT would get a twitter, so possible tweets between Ayu and G seemed like a dream to me. And when GACKT finally did get a twitter it never even crossed my mind if they would follow each other (I knew they were friends, but I also felt like GACKT was only using twitter for SHOW YOUR HEART) and now it is a reality.
I only need them to perform together one more time (an original song would be nice), and then my life would be complete.
I really hope after GACKT is completely done with the SHOW YOUR HEART campaign that he’ll decide to keep using his twitter. It’s a great way to interact with fans, especially international ones (Ayu is proof of that).
Plus, he fails so hard at it lol It’s too cute.
Also, I am so envious at those two chicks who got a replies from him in English.
If you aren’t already, follow GACKT and Ayu on twitter lol.
There’s tons I want to blabber about that has to do with my personal life, but I’ll hold off until next post.
So onto it.
Lots to talk about it lol
It’s a quarter to three right now…I am so tired. But I wanted to get this post out.
So onto it (Sorry, if it seems rushed. I might go back and fix it up later)
I don’t know if you guys noticed, but I changed my name from sweet-donuts to PaperDoll. Don’t ask me why I did it, because I don’t know myself lol
Any way onto it~
