I still love the pic ~even if photobucket is playing hard to get ☆☆☆♪♪♪ [Nov. 21st, 2005|09:00 pm]

Apologies for the duplicate posting of the above pic - >.< I was going to test the Photobucket blog feature & received 2 error messages; which I assumed mean it didn't post. DOH!




























I can't recall who I was chatting with about this, maybe it was the lovely shochu66 gals, or maybe kurarisa or Naomi- but we were lamenting the inevitable invasion of a band's blog by fans with an IQ that rivals dish soap:
Winter sure sucks. I so love when the summer comes, you can have ice cream and you don't need to walk around with a coat or scarf, ne? ? Huh? The band wants to know this..because?

This one scares me a little I dunno what can i say,,WHAT A PRETTY WOMAN,, BLAH this is the only thing i can think about when i saw the picture..I'VE GOT THE KISS OF ANIS!MUHAZ,,I AM INSAN,,-v-"just leave me alone,, XvX"

My interest has been piqued lately about the differences between Japanese and Western fan behavior. If anyone knows of any articles/resources I could read - please let me know.

O_o... that's scary.
i think mostly they just want to be able to say that they posted on the band's blog =/
people dont seem to realize that fans are fans, we're al the same and doing 'cool' things doesn't like, raise your fan status -_-

Now, if only I could read and understand Japanese, and knew where the blog was, I could probably be freaked out moreso. ;-;

Beautiful images~ ♥

Hm, Ray over at cultofpop blogs quite a bit about the disconnect between Western and Japanese standards in pop music, although it more often has to do with rorikon and the Japanese and Western definitions of 'talent'. Kind of an interesting read, even if you don't find what you're looking for.

"winter sure sucks" that's philosophy or 256th degree joke? o_0
THANK YOU for the Sakura spam!! *hugs*

i remember a lot of LJ posts & coms discussed the differences btw japanese & western fans relating to their experience at Otakon ... can't find links though~

+ about diluendo's message, i'm glad that speaking english rather than japanese is regarded like an advantage for once =p

humm, there does seem to be a dramatic difference between japanese and western fans. I never pondered it too closely before....but now that you bring it up, it is interesting.
