    Sat 7 Jul – BUCK-TICK Tour PARADE


    Today was a good show. Buck-Tick themselves were really amazing, but the set list was kind of short I thought. :/ And basically the same as Yokohama Blitz.

    Me and Hope arrived a bit early to accomodate for my getting lost or something, or missing trains or whatever catastrophe could cause me to lose my place in a ticket line. We met up with Tina and an adorable girl from Sweden, then helped them find their place in line after buying goods. XD I bought a Zepp tee and a muffler towel, yey, too bad it's pink. We waited in line for ages, then went inside and up to our second floor seats, which were basically dead center about three rows from the front. The view was great, and it really got a lot better.

    We were sitting there waiting for the show to start and watching people come in when all of a sudden I saw some guy in a pair of sunglasses come in and start chatting with some people in the front row. …
  • Trials and vocal-ations

    Hrmmm...

    Random thought for a Saturday night... how much importance should a vocalist have in music effectiveness? I tend to think the music and the sound of the vocalist's voice singing the lyrics (and not necessarily the lyrics themselves) combined make the song what it is. The whole Malice Mizer going through, what, 4 vocalists during their stint in the musicbiz? I hate it when bands lose a vocalist you've grown accustomed to, because unlike the other musicians (who, yes, are distinctive in their own right) you BLATANTLY KNOW it's a different singer when you hear them and it's always fresh on your mind because their voice is pretty much the huge focus of the song, they bring the song to the audience. In that sense I may be asking "are cover songs really right?" I love cover songs--who doesn't like cover songs??? But even though the lyrics stay the same... it's the fact they're singing lyrics written (i.e. felt) by someone else and so the music loses a bit of power if not sung by the writer/original artist. …
