Emily and Stella were interviewed in Paris about a month ago.

They don’t talk about anything especially new but some bits are worth mentioning anyway:

  • When writing “Heads Up”, capturing the moment was the band’s mantra, unlike it happened in the past. They wanted to speed up the process which ended up being a much easier, smoother one. 
  • Jacob Bercovici and Warpaint share an elective affinity. Everyone was looking forward to working with him again. Stella uses the word “symbiosis” to describe the kind of connection they all felt in the studio. Everyone was at ease and comfortable with each other. 
  • They stopped writing songs by layering the sound. Usually someone would start playing something and then the others would join in, adding layer after layer after layer: instruments, vocals, harmonies. This time around, everyone wrote stuff on their own and they kind of assembled everything together once in the studio. This was the first time it ever happened. It was a different approach and method but it worked just as well for the band. 
  • “Whiteout” was recorded in one take. 
  • The bass on “The Stall” is very prominent and reminiscent of The Cure early discography. They compare Jenny Lee’s style of playing to Jah Wobble’s and joke about how they call her “Jen Wobble”. 
  • “Today Dear” is a ballad featuring acoustic guitars. 
  • The album is dance-y in the sense that all the tracks are imbued with an energy that’s impossible to miss, but Warpaint’s trademark darkness is still there. So fear not, ye worriers. 😁😉

From GRAPH, September 2016

- The moment when you were the most nervous on stage?

It was in the scene in “Rose of Versailles: Oscar” when I played the young noble boy, and I caught sight of Yuuhi-san and Sumika-san (haha). I got so excited I accidentally squealed! Kita-san (Ozuki Tooma) said to me, “That was the most off-key note of the century” (haha).

【悲惨世界 翻译】春蕾-冰果


@skyandfields translated my fic Cultivation (about Enjolras, Combeferre, cherry blossoms, and, er, the inevitable specter of mortality) into Mandarin Chinese!  I’M SO HAPPY.

skyandfields was a super thoughtful translator, and I’m so delighted by this.  Go read, if you can read Mandarin!  If you can’t, uh, I can’t either except for occasional “hey, I know the kanji version of that” moments, but I keep gazing delightedly at it anyway.



To celebrate #BIGBANG10, Julie at BBVIPCHANNEL and I brought everyone the subbed SBS MADE Documentary! It’s full of their thoughts on their 10th anniversary, memories and hopes for the future, I hope you’ll all enjoy watching it!

Pictures from Evgenia Medvedeva’s Instagram (Check out her icon!). With Naoko Takeuchi, her original art piece gifted to her by Naoko (signed “Thank you!”), gifts from Japanese fans, and shots from her performance.  

The picture of the matryoshka doll is from the official HP, which included this blurb:

On 7/2 (Sat) Ms. Naoko Takeuchi rushed over to support Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva at the “Dreams on Ice” show in Nagaoka City, Niigata prefecture. During the show Miss Medvedeva performed to “Moonlight Densetsu” and other Sailor Moon songs. The photo is of a gift Miss Medvedeva’s mother presented to Ms. Takeuchi. 

Translated from Ishida’s twitter:

I came to the 10 day event for the “Tokyo Ghoul” stage play. The cast is always amusing, and every time I’m reminded of how wonderful the members are. Kamano-san singing “Munou” was fantastic as well. I was sitting in front of the composer Takahashi Kunimitsu, so this picture turned out quite well.

The names of the cast members, starting from the top right corner and going clockwise:

  • Murata Mitsu (Uta)
  • Yoshida Tomokazu (Yomo)
  • Miyazaki Shuuto (Hide)
  • Ogoe Yuuki (Kaneki)
  • Tabata Aya Touka)
  • Hamada Yuri (Rize)
  • Suzuki Shougo (Nishiki)
  • Kimisawa Yuuki (Amon)

“Kamano-san” is Kamano Ai, the singer who sang Munou, Root A’s OP.

Also, unrelated to this twitter post, there is a stage play sequel coming out in 2017 :D

[TRANS/LYRICS] Promise - Original Version

내 마음은 문을 닫고 난 생각에 빠져
무대위 내 모습을 상상하다 지쳐
“영원히 함께하자” 약속했던 우리지만
그 약속을 지키지 못하고 너를 울려
언제나 그 자리에 기다려준 너

I close my mind and fall into my thoughts
I feel exhausted* thinking about myself on stage
Although we promised “Let’s go on together forever”
I couldn’t keep that promise and made you cry
You always waited for me at that place

(*t/n: 지쳐 = exhausted, weary, extremely tired, used when you have no more will or strength)

Her womb smelled like it was burnt.

(Translation of the message with Ayato, Touka, and Yomo. Please feel free to send me a message for any corrections!)

The children who were meant to be born, died. The vision of the future convulses.

Someone declared that they’ll crush only half of the broad bean.
The gene is in a severe bipolar state.
The nucleic acid sequence having no recollection of its own actions.

All of the fingers that were supposed to be connected from start to end, are scattered around; it’s annoying.

If you look closely at the knot, you can see that it can be surprisingly easy to untie.

I was always asked to keep the switch.
Go forward.
Go back.

I can hear my voice from the mouth.
That voice gave me a feeling of discomfort and it had become extremely disgusting but, no one noticed that and everyone was under the impression that it was indeed, my voice.

Sin is irresponsible. I’m getting tired of being forgiven.
My shoulders have even forgotten about my legs.

I open the door with the side of my arm.

The path that I should’ve advanced in is gone and darkness pulled onto the horizon that lay right beneath it.

“Come on, come on! Come on, come on!”

Go forward.
Go back.

I can hear my voice from the bones.

“Did you know that our voice is the mixed voices from dad and mom? No wonder it’s so disgusting.”

I pinched my nose and jumped down without a pause. Just like how a child would when jumping into a pool.

Even the never-stopping rain,
even the never-breaking night,
even the never-ending agony.

It’s surely there, it’s just that it wasn’t there until now.

Falling down, falling down.
It’s as if right has become left.

And on the brink of collision, I recall Björk’s song,

Kazuki Takahashi, creator of the original Yugioh manga, has started an instagram account

To my knowledge, this is the first time he has uploaded his own art online since the Stuido Dice website was active some years ago. He doesn’t seem to be accustomed to the format yet (the caption attached to the picture of Aigami is supposed to be attached to the Atem one instead), but according to tweets by Naoyuki Kageyama, artist of the GX manga and Takahashi’s (former?) assistant, he’s delighted to be gaining followers.

According to the same source, it seems that he drew these illustrations on an iPad!
