I've always been a bit of a twit... [Feb. 7th, 2010|09:40 am]

I wanted to use my other handle name of bailey59 - color me surprised, someone else is using that name~

Re: And to add evidence to my defense:

GOOD GRIEF!!! ah the drama! that is why i have so few relations outside of family on FB. my semi-niece in law(related thru my EX-spouse) was bemoaning all of the junk her "wall" gets loaded with because of the games so amny of her acquaintances play earlier today. she was reminded of the ~hide~ and ~block~ features. XD

it's not just LJ that is falling off. used to have a fun little laruku fans group over on multiply, nothing formal, just friends who like to fangirl and stuff. some, like me, gravitated here. many are ~twittering~. i just don't wanna have one more thing to check up on all of the time. >.<

if you like "craic", i'm sure there are many other juicy words poking around. i was just loling around last night reading a wee book i rediscovered on one of my many bookcases. "Depraved English". has a very toothsome feel. some of the entries are enlightening. ^ ^

yeah, U2 comes the closest musically and lyrically on the western front for me too. i used to enjoy the way Bono would sing more than anyone else...until i 1st really listened to Hyde and L'Arc about 5-6 years ago. i'd come across them before, but didn't hunt them down until a few years after the initial anime encounter.(my son and his friends were anime junkies back in the 90s) then i found his solo work too and Bono became my second favorite vocalist. Bono still has the charisma going for him even if he's definitely passed the middle-aged hump.

feel free to come chase me down anytime. :)

Re: And to add evidence to my defense:

Whenever I've pimped out Lark to folks who didn't know them - they often remark that they sound like U2

But I must admit I first read your comment as in Sonny Bono - hahaha that would have been much more tragic

favorite word o the day - persnickety

Re: And to add evidence to my defense:

lol, Sonny Bono would have been beyond tragic. one could question one's own sanity at that point. O.o not that that question hasn't arisen before. XD

about the U2 thing, i am not gonna say that i DON'T think L'Arc has the more gifted musicians, i think they DO. but the 2 bands have such a recognizable feel to the way they play and write music and neither seems to be afraid of changing styles at any point. i think both like to think of themselves as innovative in their niche markets, and a total package sort of entertainment as well. and while i may rank laruku a bit higher, U2 is still a kick-ass band and i thoroughly enjoy their lives. i'm hoping to be able to say that about tetsuya's boys one of these days, seeing them live i mean.

my daughter still follows U2 more than i do. i guess it boils down to who you want to watch and listen to most. right now that is L'Arc and a few other Japanese bands mostly. i'm hoping i will spontaneously acquire the language by sheer osmosis. *waggles brows*

my word of the day: dysania=difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. suggested use in calling in sick: "So sorry to miss the all day meeting. I've come down with a bad case of dysania." who would ever know? gleaned from last night's mad reading of "Depraved English" lol
