  • How varied is your taste in music?

    22 Jun 2011, 13:52 by Nezumidoll

    First, make a list of your top-20 artists overall. Then, for each of these artists, add the 8 most similar artists to your list. Delete any duplicates, count up the number of entries on your list and this will give you some idea of how eclectic your listening habits are. A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a 160 represents an extremely varied one.

    very Touching Melodic ballad

    not one to quote lyrics but
    "Without changing it still goes on, is the only thing that heals pain Truth?
    The color of the sinking moon in the window dyed your skin blue" Hyde or t he person the song is describing is saying why am i not able to say say i love this girl or is my hart lieing to me and dont realy love her



    2
    ART OF LIFE

    why is this Epic track so underrated
    im not one to call a Rock Song Deep but this song has images in that that you dont get from most songs out side of prog and Folk ie music that has a story either in it or behind it

    3
    BEAUTY & STUPID by hide
    a Great sex song

  • D'ERLANGER + die in cries cd collections

    27 Aug 2009, 14:44 by chenka

    In less than a week I will be leaving the Netherlands... and heading to Japan to study in Nagasaki for a year :3 I will be traveling around a bit in September first, also attending some concerts and will post (short) reports here.

    Anyway, because I have to pack all my stuff in boxes, not just the stuff I will bring because my parents will be moving while I'm away, I decided to take photo's of two of my favourite cd collections (my number one being my L'Arc~en~Ciel collection, of which I updated the photographs btw!): D'erlanger and Die in cries. In retrospect I perhaps should have photographed my Kyo collection too... oops.

    D'ERLANGER
    http://www.aikagi.net/collection/derlangercollection.jpg
    - DARLIN' (single)
    - LULLABY -1990- (single)
    - Basilisk (album)
    - La vie en rose (album)
    - La vie en rose (album)
    - Lazzaro (album)
    - 柘榴 (single)
    - the price of being a rose is loneliness (album)
    - Rose Tinted View (dvd)
    - MOON AND THE MEMORIES… THE ETERNITIES/LAST VIDEO <LAST LIVE AT HIBIYA YA-ON/27,28th OCT.1990> (dvd)

    L'Arc~en~Ciel - Theater of Kiss (dvd)
    L'Arc~en~Ciel - Nexus 4 / Shine (single)
    D'erlanger - Barairo no jinsei (dvd)
    Zi:Kill - Rocket (dvd)
    girugämesh - Music (album)
    die in cries - Melodies (3" single)
    die in cries - Crescent Moon (3" single)
    die in cries - 種 (3" single)
    Plastic Tree - Utsusemi (album)
    Plastic Tree - Cell. (album)

    I LOVE the design of the D'ERLANGER dvd. I love how they always put so much effort in the design of their releases (like "the price of being a rose is loneliness" album and the "Rose tinted view" dvd). And I love my L'Arc~en~Ciel stuff, but that doesn't need any explaination now does it :P

    I got the die in cries singles, and 4 albums, for a total of 110 yen. WIN. Pity I already had the albums. I'm selling them btw.

    I can't wait to watch the dvd's. NEED M0AR TIME.

    Also. On another note. Ever since we moved I've been having a lot of…
  • Yahoo! Auctions Japan

    2 Nov 2008, 14:24 by chenka

    I love Japanese cd stores and the great finds you can do there. And while I'm not in Japan, Yahoo! Auctions replaces the cd stores. I did some great finds the past months:

    D'ERLANGER's LULLABY +1990+ (3"cd) and DARLIN' (3"cd) for ¥2,000

    die in cries' to you (3"cd) for ¥100

    die in cries' NODE (album), seeds (album), Nothingness to revolution (album), Crescent moon (3"cd), MELODIES (3"cd) and 種 (3"cd) together for just ¥110
    I got this just for the singles as I've already got the albums but never noticed they were included in the auction until I had won, lol...

    yukihiro's ring the noise (single) for ¥1,000

    ZI:KILL's Rocket (dvd) for ¥4,500
    Little bit expensive but this dvd is relatively rare and I'm a sucker for Zi:Kill...

    But yes, unfortunately to these great finds you've got to add some fees and shipping, so all in all... I'm broke (but happy)! :( I've banned myself from Yahoo! Auctions for a month... let's see if I can keep this up!

  • How I found my Top 50

    28 Sep 2008, 17:38 by aiecoholic

    #1 - MUCC
    Wow, um, I think I just found a blog randomly about them, and ended up watching their Waga arubeki basho PV, and got more interested from then on.
    #2 - DEAD END
    When Morrie resurfaced with CC, I was pretty obsessed with that album, and I checked out some stuff from them, but it was not easy to find then. However, I rediscovered it this year and promptly bought everything I could from them. :D
    #3 - MERRY
    I had them confused with Nightmare for the longest time, lol. Visually, I mean. But some people on a forum kept raving about them, so I downloaded their disco and was pleasantly surprised to find out they weren't typical VK.
    #4 - Deadman
    found them via a Nagoya fansite which said they were like grunge, and immediately checked them out.
    #5 - The Studs
    Knew about them almost immediately, as that's where Aie eventually resurfaced
    #6 - GLAY
    Ahahah, found them via a mostly Jpop site with samples of stuff, and really hated them initially. …

    I'm right in the middle of my finals. THIS CALLS FOR PROCRASTINATION! (note to self: have to be done by 19:00)


    Just when I thought this year was going to be very dull concert-wise, even while I'm in Japan... I turn out to be a very very lucky bitch. Yesterday I got my tickets for シド in Mito, and I've already got tickets for Vamps in Sendai... and now also Super Junior and D'ERLANGER will have concerts when I'm there. Definitely going :D And there's a few other shows I plan to attend. It's going to be a great summer after all :D


    Also. I went to Paris and saw L'Arc~en~Ciel (report here!) and naturally I couldn't come home without a bunch of new cd's. Did some lucky finds in the Japanese Book-Off in Paris.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v147/Chenka/jmusic04.jpg
    B'z - Splash! (single)
    It was cheap and shiny. Couldn't resist.

    Kyo - ALIEN (album) & strip (album)
    I'm a big fan of both D'ERLANGER and die in cries and got to hear Kyo's solo work a while ago and absolutely love it. …
