Appearance is only skin deep... [Jan. 21st, 2005|10:48 am]

Thanks to =^-^= cats board for the pics!







There is something uplifting when your husband asks you for the Gackt Mars CD so he can have the guys at work give it a listen. I actually had the CD in my car, and couldn't find it *doh!* so Leigh ended up taking a DVD instead.

Well you can guess what the responses were

1. Is that a guy?
2. Hey, is that a girl or a guy?
3. What's up with all the makeup?
4. Is he gay or what?

I never did find out if the guys liked the music or not, they couldn't get beyond the whole appearance issue. Perhaps the CD would have been better - but it made me feel good that Leigh gave it the old college try - I did hand Leigh some UV mags with Malice Mizer photos in them - HA! I hope he takes that to work..

LOL! (yah... in order for them to appreciate the music, they have to get over the physical appearance first... *sigh*)

Awwww, I love imagining Leigh trying to convert people to Gackt! ^_______^ My dad saw me watching the Mars DVD once, and he had that exact same reaction~ >.

Leigh is a brave man. I showed Blurry Eyes PV at anime club yesterday and the reaction from the guys was pretty freakin' hilarious. In response to my desktop picture of hyde--

guy: Who's that girl?
me: That's a 35 year old man.
guy: UH, NO. THAT'S A 16 YEAR OLD GIRL.

...etc. :D

That is so cute! We should appoint your husband as Ambassador of jrock - even if he got into this involuntarily.

*sobs and beats balled-up fists on the floor* You are the so, so blessed. ;_;

And how dare you sabotage his attempt at getting co-workers interested in Gackt by giving him magazines with Malice Mizer pictures in them. XD That's sabotage, I tell you, sabotage! *teases*
