hehe I can understand being a fangirl of Hyde. ^^ But not to the point you're really awful. LoL XD
But anyways, I thought the Miyavi thing was all a rumor b'cuz he's really big and prolly impossible to get to A-kon...?
Yeah, I'm not a BIG BIG fan of Miyavi but I think he's cute and he rocked in Due le Quartz as Miyabi. But I, too, am not a big fan of his music... o_o And now that I've said that, someone might kill me. LoL :3
But he's total sex. XD Hyde=much more ^_^
Well I think Miyavi has a lot of potential.. he does have a very sexy voice.. I think he needs to actually show off his 'singing' ability a bit more then the "oooh baby touch touch me." factor.. or perhaps that is just me.
Well I actually heard it from people who work on the staff- so I am like 99.99% sure it will happen..but these things can always change. but it sounds like a go..
& I think TM Revolution was "BIGGER" then Miyavi, and he was at Otakan last year..
*dreams* Jrock - a - palooza in Yankee stadium ^.~
i don't think meev's is that big in japan, i mean lots of ppl think diru is big in japan when in fact they really aren't, i mean compared to the jpop artist that usually dominate the charts and such. diru and other members of the jrock comm aren't as commercial as those other artists and don't get as much exposure and such.
neway i went to the TMR live at Otakon and it was so much fun!! XD We were like in a concert hall deal so everything was very professional and nice and fun and the acoustics were great and they were big screens around the stage that projected the bands members and stuff. His love was in a place closed off from the rest of teh con. I've never been to A Kon and I dunno what type of convention center they're using there but maybe for Meevs it might be similar ^^
I think bringing meevs over here is a big step for jrock fans, i mean just a few yrs ago something like this would have been impossible to fanthom. ^^
Who knows he might lead to even better artists coming over here XD
ahaha @.@;; I think he thrives on charisma definetly not talent @.@;;
I heard TMR was great.. and he is such a cutie patootie.. ahhhhhh *nostalgia* hahah when I first saw Laruku, I was introduced to Glay, Luna Sea, TMR, all on the same 1999 shows..
His love was in a place? ahh that must be Fruedian! *chu*
Yes it's great for Jrock fans - the only downfall is, ... well they are anime cons & BELIEVE IT OR NOT people bitched that DJewel were there (NOT an anime band).. blah blah >.<
Ahh Charisma does go a long way..
& I am thinking my friend Naomi is right - perhaps Miyavi will have fun wherever he is. God love him, and prays for him! lol
lmao lmao i meant his live was in a place closed off from the rest of the con. the thing about TMR thou is that he has alot of songs in anime series and movies so he had this lil fanbase there already.
erm we'll see how things go with meevs o.O;
I think I busted my appendix with anger over all the stupid little fangirl shit that went on around this thing with Miyavi (See rant here
. I think that the anime fans got turned off by all the jrock biyatches calling them names and mocking them. (Despite the fact that many of them got their start in anime). I just want people to kick back and enjoy the freakin' show already.
And I really want Gackt to allow US fans to attend his Las Vegas concert events. I'd pay to get into the concert if not the tour itself. I don't care about eating lunch with him or having a special "casino night", but to not see him perform while he's on US soil... *sigh* It would be a major bummer.
anime fans and jrock fans dissing each other.. isn't that like Star Trek & LoTR fans making fun of each other? I say the difference is pretty small.
Who is geekier? oh I say that's hard to define *wink*..
I thought almost ALL of the Jrock fans I've met got their start in anime.. I always felt odd one out because I had no interest in anime.
I was annoyed to pieces when some evil Jrock cosplayers (waiting for Duel Jewel to perform) obnoxiously chatted loudly while a Japanese anime illustrator was giving a talk.. Many of us there (we were helping to set up for DJ acoustic I think... were embarrassed.. you know how that is, you fear everyone will get that sweeping impression of all jrock fans) I am still mad at myself for not going up and giving them a swift kick..
Even though I'm not into Anime, it's an art.
I admit there is a scary element that seems to exist at cons...the sloppily fat cosplayer guy who drinks to much & lives in his parents basement.. ^^;; That must be a shock for folk like DJewel..as my friends who do this in Asia send me their pics.. and let's just say they tend to be a lot less scary and cute..
Ohoho, you need to see Otaku no Video, it's this film by Gainax, and it's half anime, alf documentary. They interview Japanese "otaku", and it's not a pretty site at all. Many of them make The Simpsons "Comic Book Guy" look svelte and well groomed.
What's even scarier is female cosplayers who are overweight and decide to do skimpily dressed characters. There was one catgirl at Katsucon.... I thought I was going to die of shock and horror.
It's always kinda baffled me how they're getting these HUGE acts to come to these (comparitively) small events. O_o I mean, it's different if it's a relatively small or independant group like Duel Jewel, but... TMR and Miyavi. I mean, those are fucking... superstars. O_o I dunno how this is happening. I don't really like it... =\ They're probably trying to make a name for themselves in the US and have to start somewhere but... all the change lately, like the B'z US concerts and Gackt's US events, it's kind of irking me... Change is scary. =\
Every day should be Helayne appreciation day. *hugs* Sounds like you had a good time.
Woo for appreciation day! I've been a bunny of energy lately, so everyone at work is like, "YOU ROCK!" But I'm one of those people who really don't know how to accept praise so I sort of stand there all awkward and say 'thanks' over and over...
But yeah, fan culture has never been my thing. I don't know. I like certain artists but never enough to want to find out everything about them. *shrug*

I know exactly how you feel ~ but it is awfully nice when people are happy with what you are doing.
Laruku is really the only group I know trivia about - but it's easy to aquire if you have the lovely friends I do that are walking trivia archives *smile* so it seeps in.. Mostly I like the bbs/fan sites where I can learn about events, releases & interviews.
The nicest sites are the ones that won't jump all over someone, even if they ask a supposedly 'stupid' question.
I think fangirlism is hard to avoid, I mean, people get obsessive about things because it's natural to latch onto something you love. You just have to make sure that you are a fangirl with taste, i.e. you treat others nicely and aren't rude and obnoxious. I mean, I'm a total Ken fangirl but I try not to overstep my limits because I don't want to be like the annoying fangirl everyone hates--which really has nothing to do with the fandom, really, it's just common courtesy to be polite and not interrupt or diss people or bash everything that doesn't have to do with your fandom... that I don't appreciate at all.
I really REALLY hope I've totally grown out of my immature & annoying fangirl phase, I want to apologize profusely to everyone if I've ever acted like that--I'd like to think of myself rather as a giggly but polite fangirl who doesn't have a mean know-it-all streak and who doesn't bash other bands and who isn't too offended when someone dislikes her band... I'm rambling again, gomen. In short: I'm annoying but not too annoying and at least I'm nice :P
