I arrived at the venue little past 5, but I could still get everything I wanted, only white shirt was sold out today.
Staff was late with letting fans in by over 15mins… it was cold. But when inside I immediately liked the venue - stage was quite high and it felt quite wide as well, I think it must have been easy to see wherever you were.
I started with an early 100s number so I got a nice spot in the 3rd row in front of Kyo’s box, on the left side of the barrier.

From SE video I remember some forest, a creepy doll covered with blood, dodgy corridor, people, child’s drawings and writing ‘i will fuck your …’.
Band came on stage in usual order: Shinya, Die, Toshiya, Kaoru and when other members were ready to play they were soon followed by Kyo.
Didn’t notice that much about other members, sorry. Toshiya had much shorter hair, chin length, it looks very fresh, he wore a jacket that he took off later at some point (as my friend told me). Kaoru had also short hair (actually their hair is similar length but Toshiya’s all sleek).

Kyo’s outfit should get a separate entry (probably it will). He had a very nice collar, leather straps, loose shirt that was showing his shoulders and upper back - and it was all connected as one piece. On top of that he wore some chains and he also had other accessories. He had strong make up, that really made his eyes look bigger and had 3 dots between his eyebrows. His hair was spiked and he’s back to a very irregular length, mostly staright line fringe with longer bits. He also had a white mask attached to the back of his neck, but he never used it during the show.

Set started with some good energy and fans could join a lot. At first band members mostly stayed in their areas on stage (but don’t quote me about other members xD).
During Phenomenon, when Kyo was dancing a bit, I thought that it really is one of those songs that seem quiet, but it’s hard to stay still when you listen to them.

During most longer breaks between songs we stayed quiet as the atmosphere was like that, but there was one that turned into a very lively competition which band member gets loudest fans screaming for them ;)

I liked ballads and the sad and quiet that came with them. That moment in namamekashiki when all sounds stop and suddenly they return, they used light so perfectly then, giving us sudden shower of light but it was followed by a dim light.

I liked heavier and faster songs when we could join them more. I mentioned before that I really love fans’ participation and tonight it was so good! All those perfect timed bits ‘parasite, children of hatred’, 'headless body, i say destrot fuck off’… it’s always a dialogue with Kyo. In DISABLED COMPLEXES he came to the edge of the stage to watch fans when we sang 'psycho killer’ for him.

Fun bit (maybe? an interesting bit?) - Kyo sang many parts of Aoi Tsuki while looking at the lyrics sheet next to his box… I feel some fans remembered those lyrics better and could join him in all right places without any problem ;)
When fans sang ’~nozomu’ in responce to Kyo during Byoshin it made him quite pleased. He was headbanding really hard with this song too!
Utafumi is super fun live, there’s so much going on and we get to participate so much!!

We got a nice heated up calling to crowd as well.
'Are you still there? Can you go on? Sendai!
Guys!!! Ooooo ~toooooooooo~kooooo!!!! Can you go on?
Girls!!! Are you still there? ON ~ NAAAAA!!! Can you go on?
Can you fucking give me more??? Can we become one? Can you become one with us????’

After Hageshisa Kyo took 2 bottles from his place by the drumset and came to the front, he started to spray fans, first in the middle, then he moved to the left and once he emptied his bottle he took a swing as in to throw it to the fans. BUT. As he took that swing he threw the bottle to the back of the stage giving fans a winning smile ;) Very happy he opened his second bottle and started spraying fans again, this time moving to the right from the center. And he repeated his joyful fun of throwing the bottle away from fans. On purpose. Oh that little grin ;)
He gave us one last glance before starting to clap while walking off the stage.

The rest of the band threw their pics, drumsricks and scrunchies, towels, beer and water bottles etc. Special thank you to Toshiya for throwing his towel to the area where I had the luck to be ;)

I’m very curious about the setlist tomorrow. And I expect an even better energy, as we are all just warming up, fans and the band!!

TAY VS. ADELE:

WEEK ONE

Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” (Big Machine) has had the biggest sales and streaming bow of the year for a single.

She logs about 625k song SPS in its first week. For comparative purposes, Adele’s “Hello” (Columbia) did 1.5m SPS in its first week.

These totals, of course, are calculated by taking total sales and adding that sum to total streams divided by 150.

It should be noted that with 30.7m first-week streams, Taylor surpasses Adele there, while the “LWYMMD” video has earned a record-smashing 120m views and rising. It’s also flown inside the Top 10 at Pop radio after only a week and remains atop the iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify charts, among other rundowns.

In other words, and it bears repeating: It may not be “Hello” huge, but it’s huge.

‘Look what happens when we don’t talk to each other’: Korean American filmmakers’ L.A. riots stories

“The mainstream media made it sound as if the 1992 L.A. riots were caused by black-Korean conflict,” [Kim-Gibson] said. “That boiled my blood, because that was not the case. Black-Korean conflict was one symptom, but it was certainly not the cause of that riot. The cause of that riot was black-white conflict that existed in this country from the establishment of this country.”

Media reports that pitted the African American community against their Korean immigrant neighbors, Kim-Gibson felt, “were tremendously wrong. So I decided I could not have the mainstream media tell our stories. We had to go and tell it ourselves.”

The Great Seattle Windshield Pitting Epidemic

Starting in Bellingham Seattle in 1954 residents began to notice unexplained pitting on the windshields of their cars.  Over time the problem began to grow as more and more people reported pitting on their windshields, most of which the police determined to be kid vandals with bb guns.  However, by April reports of mysterious pitting began to occur in surrounding neighborhoods.  Within a week isolated reports of windshield damage turned into mass delusion as over 3,000 people filed police reports detailing unexplained windshield pitting.  When the epidemic reached metropolitan Seattle the mass hysteria soon grew out of control.  People by the thousands went to the police and car experts to report every nick, ding, dimple, scratch, or pit that appeared on their windshields.  Wild speculation and theories abounded including secret government radio waves, sand flea eggs, gremlins, and cosmic rays.  Many others claimed that they saw pits and bubbles form right before their eyes. One newspaper even reported that a strange and unknown “gravel-like” substance could be found on roads throughout the city.

On April 15th Sergeant Max Allison of the Seattle police crime laboratory stated that the pitting reports consisted of “5 per cent hoodlum-ism, and 95 per cent public hysteria.“ By April 17th reports of phantom windshield pitting had come to an end.  Today scientists and experts blame the incident as a case of “collective delusion”.  Most of the pitting cases were caused by natural forces or wear and tear, but it was only due to media hype that people began noticing windshield damage that they had not noticed before.

Big congrats to Staff Pick alums, Brewer!

Announced at Cannes, the boys will be directing and co-writing a new film starring the ubiquitous NICOLAS CAGE and Jack Huston of “Boardwalk Empire” fame.

We can say we knew them when they were making amazing music videos, such as Passion Pit’s “Carried Away” and Alt-J’s “Something Good.”
