    THE LOCAL ART

    人性補欠

    The Local art was pretty disappointing, Taiyouzoku and Retro Honpo were a lot of fun. Wish I could have seen some more artists but no regrets, it was totally great up until the end.

  • A list of Splendid Splendidness

    20 avr. 2007, 22h25m par Gnac

    This entry serves two main purposes: one is sort of useful and the other(s) is/are utterly stupid.

    First, the stupid reasons: to pimp this link in the artist pages of everyone I listen to, to shamelessly get people to click on it, and to annoy those who did.

    Second, to test a PHP script which automatically extracts data from Winamp generated HTML playlists - so I can honestly say that this DOES contain everything on my playlist at the time I made this entry.

  • couldnt resist this one

    22 mars 2007, 6h55m par cogsturning

    so..your supposed to list your top 50 artists and talk about how you came across them. this is gonna be a great time killer for me.

    1.氣志團
    i first saw them on kouhaku utagassen 2005/2006. i thought they were some crappy gimmick band and proceeded to ignore. sometime later i ended up with a copy of 愛 羅 武 勇 that i didnt listen to, i dont think i even unzipped it. i somehow found myself on one of thier videos on youtube during the worst most guilt-ridden time of my life and it made me laugh when i was so miserable.

    2.徳永英明
    when i started listening to 氣志團 the whole of my music taste changed and i started getting interested in artists that id seen connected to them. one of his songs was used in kishidan elvis was our sempai fake backstory thing and i thought it was the cheesiest thing id ever heard. that and i had no idea what the sex of the singer was 6_6

    3.尾崎豊
    i actually got interested in him after seeing shimotsuma monagatari/kamikaze girls. after hearing him mentioned i read up on him a bit and got terribly curious.
  • a big random post of different stuff because im bored

    19 mars 2007, 2h19m par cogsturning

    artists i cant stand:

    -DIR EN GREY i just see no appeal whatsoever. its just obnoxious ruckus to the point of making me laugh. and what in the hell is wrong with the fans of these guys? so many of them seem to think having a band members blood or spit get on you is like the best thing ever. thats fucking disgusting. then again many of these are the same 14 year olds who buy all their clothes at hot topic and think self-mutilation is awesome.

    -the majority of vk and all its subgroups - the music is at best medicore, and normally just annoying. theyre fanbase idealizes them primarily on their looks (which i find silly). many vk fans say things like 'if they didnt have the makeup and the clothes id still love them' well then why dont you JUST LISTEN TO REGULAR BANDS. theres lots of awesome bands out there made up of guys and girls in tshirts and jeans.

    -Koda Kumi - the exact opposite of what music should be about-THE MUSIC. generic pop and skankdom, she pisses me off to no end. put some goddamn clothes on! щ(゚Д゚щ)
  • i wish there was winter here..

    30 jan. 2007, 5h06m par cogsturning

    i went to school this afternoon to find everyone wearing sweaters and jackets and scrafs. its like 70 degrees! what a bunch of weenies. i mustve looked odd in a tshirt, skirt and sandals..

    CHAGE & ASKA - wtf they have a new album?? im so oblivous, i didnt even realise they were still making stuff, i thought the singles id been seeing around were re-releases. go me. so are they supposed to be tagged as 'chage and aska' now, cause thats how ive been seeing it? i think ill stick with the old way. the album is really good too.

    The イナズマ戦隊 - i dont know how i feel about thier new album. its..alright i guess. its kinda odd, or maybe just different. it doesnt feel as fun as some of thier previous stuff, like kinda forced. i think itll grow on me with a few listens tho. looks like ive got them tagged wrong tho..bummer.

    Experimental Dental School - ever catch yourself listening to something and wondering why your listening to it? theyre strange and kinda useless, but interesting and entertaining at the same time. …

  • recommended japanese radio

    18 jui. 2006, 17h02m par Dasr

    Tag Radio is sometimes hit or miss, at best. Incorrect tags and I wonder if sometimes done out of some twisted sense of humor.

    Begun as my own personal tag radio: recommended japanese radio.
    http://www.last.fm/tag/recommended%20japanese%20radio

    I have noticed two other users, adding the tag. Which is a great idea. Join the other two users and myself, in building a comprehensive list of all Japanese artists at FM. If you find any Japanese bands streamed, add them with this tag . A very few on the list aren't yet streamed, just looking to the future. Thanks Dasr

    some bands:
    Supercar
    Boredoms
    Guitar Wolf
    Mad 3
