26 Jan 2009, 03:29 by jennyukariI must have bought more CDs during the second half of 2008 than any other semiannual period ever. Why? Two reasons: 1) I'm attempting to complete my B'z and スピッツ collections which may never be complete. Their discographies are just too large. 2) Shirokiya bargains.
Note: this list doesn't cover any non-Asian music purchases that I made or any albums I made this month... I might have to create a Pt. 2.
B'z - Bad Communication & The Mixture
So I waited... to get my copy of B'z's BAD COMMUNICATION (mini-album) and THE MIXTURE... I finally did it. Watch the PV for BAD COMMUNICATION through this link. It's officially called a mini-album despite only being 3 tracks long. Although not their first single, this was their first BIG hit and it's release was a pivotal point in their career. It's so catchy that there are numerous versions of this song in other album releases BAD COMMUNICATION (000-18) in Loose (a nittier, grittier blues version), Bad Communication (E. …

4 Apr 2007, 00:17 by cogsturningive seen several of these around and thought id do one, cause theyre fun to read and ive been very nostalgic lately anyhow.
childhood: i was raised on country music. my father was a country/bluegrass musician and my mother was obviously a fan of such things as well so that is what i knew as a child. not too much current/popular country, more like Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. that and random ballad and cheeseball artists (which may explain some of my current favs) like Whitney Houston and Rod Stewart. if my father hadnt of died when i was three, i probably would have ended up even more heavily involved in country.
middle school: 7th grade was when i can say i really starting paying attention to music, more then likely cause everyone else did and i wanted to connect more with my friends. at the time most of my friends were in band and like ska, punk, and swing. so i had quite a bit of exposure to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy,Green Day, and The Brian Setzer Orchestra throughtout middle school. …
22 Mar 2007, 06:55 by cogsturningso..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.
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.
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
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.
30 Jan 2007, 05:06 by cogsturningi 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. …

11 Sep 2006, 04:03 by kiramekiI thought I'd get a good laugh out of this, seeing as how I'm most deffo not mainsteam in the least. Unless maybe I was living in Japan. Then I'd probably be mainstream. Maybe.
Find the number of listeners for each of your top 10 artists and add them up and divide by 10 to get the average.
1 - Hamasaki Ayumi - 42,588
2 - Utada Hikaru - 42,490
3 - YUI - 4,787
4 - The Hush Sound - 14,783
5 - sakamoto maaya - 18,056
6 - Sugarcult - 76,364
7 - Shogo Hamada - 549
8 - Arashi - 3,453
9 - Ootsuka Ai - 7,550
10 - GARNET CROW - 2,883
Total = 213,503
213,503/10 = 21,350.3
My Top 10 Average = 21,350.3
Last.Fm's Top 10 Average = 320,728.2
21,350.3/320,728.2 = .0665682032...
Bahahaha (andrew) I knew I wouldn't be more than 10% mainstream. But really, isn't 6% a little extreme. And it's probably only because Sugarcult balances out Shogo Hamada. I don't really even listen to Hamada Shogo that much. …
