1995/ 07.08 Nack 5 “Vicious the Night” and “ Soundfilia” recording. We were chatting in a CD store so there were lots of people that gathered to see us. The behaviour of the audience is getting rougher and more hostile these days though…

1995/ 07.21 Recording for “ Video Jam”. I had fun recording a chat with Tetchan but they didn’t use much of the footage.
1995/ 07.22 ”Shock Age Shibuya “, I remember this quite well. We were performing with Gray & Eins:Vier. And we thought that the encore part will be more intense so we performed only 2 songs in the show and then 4 songs during encore and it was a big success, but I don’t even want to remember how the singing was because it was really bad.
1995/ 07.23 – 29 Continue to rehearse for “Natsu no Yuutsu” single. Oricon cover, LF interview, TVK Music Click, TV Saitama “Hot Wave”, FM Fuji “Saturday Break Up”, Tower Records Satellite studio…. Lots of appearances here and there.
1995/ 07.30 Rendez-vous pre-show. There will be Laruku news on the big screen outside Shibuya station at 12 today, so I woke up really early to head to Shibuya
first so that the fans won’t spot me. I thought I’d go down and check out the fans for a bit but the manager stopped me. (According to Music Station, a few hundred people gathered …wow) So the Shibuya film concert and Tshirt present & GO! Was announced on the screen. Under the hot sun I made a dash downstairs to check out the fans that gathered. After the film concert we also announced the Budokan show, and we had a secret live. I like this kind of event.

1995/ 08.19 Nack 5 Go Rock Live. We head our rehearsal a day ahead and it has been a while since we’ve been outdoor and it felt very good. Tetsu, Ken and Taka enjoyed the Summer well before the show.
1995/ 08.24 – 26 Start of Rendez Vous. This time we split in two groups so Tetchan and I were responsible for the north side. Its been a long time since we’ve been to Niigata. I feel nostalgic seeing Minami-chan of Eventor. Then we went to Sapporo Penny Lane. Nabe-chan’s MC was so calm that it was kind of odd..
1995/ 08.27 Nagoya Dimond Hall
1995/ 08.29 Finish Live at Sendai Beeb Basement Theatre. Then we returned to Tokyo and its been a while since the 4 of us gathered and practiced the acoustic version of “ All dead “ for tomorrow’s Rendez Vous until the morning.
1995/ 08.30 Roppongi Art Forum. Ogata-san from B-Pass suddenly threw a B-Pass towards the audience I was so shocked! He said “ I’ve wanted to do this a long time ago” and smiled.
1995/ 08.31 Osaka imp Hall. Although we have already performed in Tokyo, the MC kept saying “everybody you can only see it here!” and we performed again “All Dead” …..-_-“
1995/ 09.03 Niigata Ejison autograph session. For a few days I spent signing over 3000 sheets and I think my signature has evolved…There is a secret surprise in the back side of around 5 sheets.
1995/ 09.08 After rehearsing for 4 days, “ Tour heavenly 95” kick started and until we reached Nagoya on the 21st at last. At Fukuoka we bought a Mohawk wig and ken wore it on stage at Hiroshima. At the 2nd day of the Osaka show, Ken said to the audience “ If you don’t show me your boobs I’m not going to play Dune!” …and there was dead air in the audience… and he went on and said “ I want bigger boobs!” and the audience went silent again…
1995/ 09.22 During TV Asahi “ Music Station” Hyde suddenly disappeared in the middle. He was supposed to record a comment…but the part was cut out at the end.
1995/ 09.24 –10.01 Starting of Laruku’s “ Mid-night Rock City”, B-Pass photoshoot, NHK Rehearsal.
1995/ 10.02 NHK PopJam performance. I thought we should remove our bad name from the previous appearance. The other famous people we saw this time.. maybe only Amuro Namie. She was more quiet than she appears on TV and she was very cute.
1995/ 10.04 NHK Hall Live. It feels weird because we just came here 2 days ago for Pop Jam. But it was the first time I was alone.
1995/ 10.05 TBS “M Navi” recording. I heard Nokko is next room but we didn’t get to see her.
1995/ 10.09 After 3 days of holidays, we recorded for NTV “Music Park”. The next door backstage was Hitomi and I got to see a little bit of her. Right now it is 1:00 AM, seems like it won’t end until 3:00 AM…. I want to go home sooner… The next time would be after the new years ne.

I can’t find the scans for this chapter. If anyone has it please post it. :)
Spain was one of those characters who was a devious and conquering empire. Like Turkey and Prussia he too had done terrible things in his past and in modern days he was able to wind down…But that still doesn’t go away.
I need Spain having night terrors of when he literally killed empires like the Aztecs and Mayas.
I need Spain feeling so much regret that he just breaks down and cries
I need Spain that beats himself up because he cares too much for the feelings of those around him than his own feelings.
I need Spain broken to the point where he can’t act bright and positive anymore
And the most important thing,
I need people to be there for Spain when he’s in tough times. I need people caring for him the way he cares for others because he can’t fight all alone
America was talking to Spain and asked, “dude, can I have some flat bread?” To which Spain replied, “¿Que?” And America explained what flatbread is and Spain said, “…You mean tortillas?” And America said, “No, they’re called flatbread!” Spain replied, “They’re tortillas!” “FLATBREAD.” “TORTILLAS” “SQUARE UP, RICE MILK.” “IT’S CALLED HORCHATA YOU WEIGHT LOVING BURGER.” And then Spain threw the chair he was sitting in. Romano stepped in and yelled at Spain.
J'ai pleuré en 2005 contre les Grecs, j'ai pleuré en 2007 après non qualifications pour les JO, j'ai pleuré en 2009 quand on aurait du finir champions d'Europe, j'ai pleuré en 2011 après la finale perdue, j'ai pleuré en 2012 après le quart de finale le plus truqué du monde… Bref, j'ai grandi avec l'équipe de France, j'ai connu Antoine Rigaudeau sous les couleurs bleus, j'ai connu Aymeric Jeanneau avec les mêmes, j'ai vu mûrir Nicolas Batum, j'ai vu Antoine Diot renâitre, j'ai vu Tony Parker et Boris Diaw venir tous les étés contre la volonté de leurs franchises.. On les a vaincu les garçons, eux qui avaient volontairement triché aux JO, la roue à tourner. Enfin. On a une victoire à chercher dimanche, pour enfin donner à la France sont premier titre dans le basket international seniors, faire taire ceux qui nous ont vu morts et ceux qui ont jugé bon de ne pas porter le maillot bleu cet été, ou n'importe quand. Vous changez mes étés depuis 18 ans, celui ci se doit d'être le bon.
