    Hello guys! And welcome back to my 35 VK Challenge Thing featuring Days! :D
    I don't know what happened to the title of this thing~ I swear I had a good working title for this but I've totally forgotten it >.< Oh well
    Anyways since I haven't updated this in like a week I decided to just make an epicly long finale where I just knockout the rest of the challenges so I can move on to bigger and better things!
    So without further rambling since this is gonna be a long one~ As the great Super Mario once said: "Here we go!"

    Day 26: Best intro to a song:
    Lycaon-Shadow

    Okay so this one was really easy~ I freaking love the intro to this song! The guitar riff mixed with the violin in the background is super catchy! I swear the first time I heard this song I knew I would love it just from hearing this amazing intro!

    Day 27: Favorite debut song by an all-male group
    Purple Stone-Scar

    So most of you should know by now that I love Purple Stone~ Seriously they're my favorite indie band right now and this was the first song I heard by them and I instantly knew that this band was gonna be great! This is how you make a debut song~

    Day 28: Favorite debut song by an all-female group
    Cyntia-Run to the Future

    So I listened to this song pretty much when it came out back in 2012 and I knew that I loved this band I mean beautiful girls making really catchy hard rock/metal music? What more can I guy ask for? Seriously this song is really good! I especially love the guitar riff in the intro :moved: And Yui's headbanging is the cutest thing! <3

    Day 29: Favourite song from an anime
    ACCESS-Doubt & Trust (D.Gray-Man's 3rd openig)

    This one is probably a surprise~ And honestly this is the only song that I like by this band (I looked up some of their other songs but didn't like them too much) But this song is seriously one of the most epic songs I've ever heard! It really gets your blood pumping and it plays at a pretty intense point in the anime~

    Day 30: A song from a band’s alter-ego
    Sendai Kamotsu-Gei School Otokogumi

    *dies laughing* OMG I still can't believe this is Nightmare! Like how can a band that's so cool create an alter-ego that's... this? It's so stupid that it's one of the greatest things ever XD

    Day 31: A song performed by a VK model
    DISACODE-Tsubaki

    So I thought about using a Ganglion or Aldious song for this one~ But then I thought "why not use a song performed by Akira who is arguably one of the most well known VK models out there?" So here is Tsubaki by DISACODE! I seriously love this song! I love the traditional Japanese elements mixed with a cool rock sound! This is also why I like bands like Kiryu and Wagakki Band~

    Day 32: A song from the Oricon charts
    Royz-THE BEGINNING

    And here's another amazing song by Royz! Honestly I'm not surprised it made the Oricon charts but I'm really happy that it made the 6th spot! That's really good! And they really deserve it for how consistently amazing they are! :moved:

    Day 33: A song from a band that debuted this year
    xaa-xaa-Doshaburi no Kanojo (どしゃぶりの彼女)

    So I guess technically xaa-xaa debuted last year but they didn't release anything until this year so I think it's safe to put this band here~ And I must say that this band is very promising! Both of their releases have been super good so far! I can't wait to hear from them in the future~ And I must say as someone who listened to them when they were Belmosaic I immediately liked them when I first heard them~ Especially this song

    Day 34: The first random song that comes to you
    THE GALLO-Muen (夢宴)

    So this song randomly pops up in my head all the time~ Not that I'm complaining because it's a super epic song by an underrated band! Seriously I suggest you give this song a listen if you haven't already~

    Day 35: A song from a band that you recently discovered
    UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ-KANATA

    Okay so I actually started listening to these guys a long time ago but I guess you could say I recently rediscovered their music or have a new found fascination with them since I saw them live I swear Jrock lives just have this magical power where no matter what band is performing you fall in love with them for a little while~ But KANATA is one of my favorite songs by them at the moment~ I especially loved this song live you could really feel Angel Taka's emotion when he sang the chorus :moved:

    But that's finally it for this massive 35 song challenge! (Yay I'm the first one done! :p) I hope you guys enjoyed reading the challenge! Let me know if there's any other challenge type things you'd like me to do in the future because these are kind of fun to make~
    But anyways that's all I have for now~ So until next time... Bye guys!

    • Where I've Been In The Last Week

      Hello everybody! What is happening with you? Nothing? Something? Everything? Tell me I'm listening *pauses*...... Wow you're into some weird stuff aren't you? Oh well I'm not here to judge
      Anyways I'm sure you guys have noticed I haven't really been active here in the past week~ Well at least I hope someone noticed! Please love me! T_T I'll get Abandoned Child Syndrome if you don't >.<
      But anyways I'm writing this journal to give y'all an...

      Hello everybody! What is happening with you? Nothing? Something? Everything? Tell me I'm listening *pauses*...... Wow you're into some weird stuff aren't you? Oh well I'm not here to judge
      Anyways I'm sure you guys have noticed I haven't really been active here in the past week~ Well at least I hope someone noticed! Please love me! T_T I'll get Abandoned Child Syndrome if you don't >.<
      But anyways I'm writing this journal to give y'all an update on where I've been in the last week~
      So for starters y'all know that I've been working a lot~ And for those of you who don't know I am basically getting full time hours at work so that's been leaving me tired afterwords where I literally don't feel like doing anything!
      Then on Wednesday I went to Calgary because their anime "Otafest" was in town so I had to go to that~ And I met up with Alice9Koibito and some of her friends- for you young JPA people she used to be active on here and she's super cool and we've become good friends~ And we went to this Korean chicken place which was basically an Asian KFC but like way better than KFC so not KFC at all :undecided: Except the conversation for most of the dinner was about Kpop so I was totally lost >.<
      Speaking of getting lost! The next day I went over to the university to talk about transferring there in September and let me tell ya that university is a hell of a lot bigger than the one I used to go to! I had no idea where I was going and it was raining out so I got completely drenched! But all is good the great Night-sama did find a way out of this dilemma on his own like the independent future World Ruler he is
      Night-nii: But you asked a security person where to go!
      Night-sama: *throws book at Night-nii* Shut up!
      Night-nii: Yay! That ouched! Wow that book must have a lot of letters in it! It's so heavy! :moved:
      ....Yeah... Anyways I did find my way there but on my way back to the train station I got completely turned around and ended up going around in circles... and it took me longer to realize that I was going around in circles than I would've liked... Did I mention it was raining that day? Because it was and I got soaked! And I had to go for dinner with my cousin afterwards! So that was a minor inconvenience >.<
      And then the next day: Friday was day 1 of the convention! And I was excited and nervous for it at the same time because Alice9Koibito wasn't there because she was out of town that weekend so I had to ask some other people I met last year to hang out and on Friday I hung out with a very pretty girl who looks like Miko especially with her eyes and smile :moved: But I'm gonna leave it at that for now because I don't want to make this journal 1000+ words it's just supposed to be an update journal~ Maybe if you guys want to hear more about her and how things went I'll let you know~ But one really funny thing happened that day:
      So I don't know how many of you know about Shinichi Watanabe (who's nickname is Nabeshin) He's a famous anime director
      Here's a pic:
      http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Shinichi-Watanabe-Smash.jpg
      So I went to his panel with cutie's sisters and cousins (I'll just call her "cutie" because I don't want to use her real name and I can't think of a better one right now and I'd feel weird calling her Miko) while she was at a yaoi panel with her other sister but they met up with us in the middle of Nabeshin's panel~
      So after they had come in late someone asked what kind of panties Nabeshin likes and his answer he pointed into the audience and said "what that girl is wearing! If you want to know what I like just ask her to show you" :p And guess who he pointed at? Yep he pointed at cutie XD It was so funny! I'm sure she was super embarrassed but that was just too good~ We think that she got pointed out because she came in late and she had magenta hair (she was cosplaying as Rin from Free if any of you know who that is because I didn't lol) so she kinda stood out
      So that was my interesting story from Friday
      Then on Saturday I hung out with another couple people I met last year who were all cool and super nice~ So I don't have any really funny stories from that day except for the fact that I watched some Space Dandy~ And if y'all don't know what that is just look it up it's definitely... something :p
      And then the event I was waiting for happened! The UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ concert! And I must say I wasn't super excited to see them when I heard that they would be the band that was going to Otafest but I must say I'm really happy I saw them! They have really good showmanship and they were really fun to watch! And their English was pretty good too~ My favorite moment of the MC was when the bassist Kyo introduced himself and he had a Mohawk with two spikes on the side and he pointed to each side spike saying "love, peace" then brushing over his Mohawk "sex appeal" and from that moment on he became my favorite member of NOIZ XD :p
      And I bought the two CDs that they were selling at the convention: METEORS and Legend of the Rock 'n' Roll Heroes and got them signed the band which was super cool~
      Speaking of autographs! I also got an Autograph from voice actress Yui Makino~ And I have pictures of this as well for y'all:
      https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/11224280_10204442560209662_4881940016276809126_n.jpg?oh=607b617dcce9aeb9642b65813c16f682&oe=55C5EF6D
      https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/11236435_10204442560889679_3258046072137578315_n.jpg?oh=441ca27a711b27ae582a72431e5db0ac&oe=56073CD4
      And I must say she was pretty darn cute too :moved:
      I didn't really get many other pictures from the convention but I also got this one of UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ~ I wanted more of them but there were too many tall people in front of me at the concert so I couldn't get any good shots >.<
      https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/t1.0-9/11143357_10204434331883959_902557863269600049_n.jpg?oh=14dcee91727dcf3d179b2bdfcf62e3d5&oe=56060353
      And for those of you who wanted to know what I bought at the convention other than the CDs~ I bought:
      A deck of playing cards that was Claymore themed (my favorite anime of all time <3)
      A photo set of Yui Makino which I bought to get signed
      A set of all of the Akatsuki members' rings (for my cousin's birthday)
      3 buttons (Erza from Fairy Tail, Phoenix and Edgeworth from the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series)
      and a copy of Diddy Kong Racing for N64
      But that's all I'm going to say about the convention for now~
      And as for the other days I had 8 and a half hour shifts at work from Sunday till today (Tuesday) but luckily I have the next 3 days off so hopefully I can be active on here more! :D
      But that's all I have to say for now! Except for the fact that I am going to finish the music challenge just for completeness sake~ Lord knows I haven't followed through with many things in my journals but I'm gonna finish this one dammit!
      Anyways until next time... Bye guys!

        Hey there guys! How is everyone doing? I think I already failed the challenge since it's technically been two days since I posted the last one but I'm gonna finish what I started god dammit! So here's part 5 of the 35 song challenge :D

        Day 21: A song that you love but rarely listen to:

        Hey there guys! How is everyone doing? I think I already failed the challenge since it's technically been two days since I posted the last one but I'm gonna finish what I started god dammit! So here's part 5 of the 35 song challenge :D

        Day 21: A song that you love but rarely listen to:
        lynch.-LIGHTNING

        Don't get me wrong I really do love this song a lot! It's one of lynch.'s best songs in my opinion but unfortunately it played on my shuffle at the wrong time and now I have a sort of depressing association with it that makes it hard to listen to it sometimes~ I am trying to change that though because I really want to enjoy this song again!

        Day 22: The 1st song alphabetically in your iPod/ iTunes/ mp3 player
        Okay there's no video on YouTube for the first song alphabetically on my iTunes so I'll go with the second one:
        Nightmare-~lulu~

        So apparently "~" counts as a letter that makes this song first (or second alphabetically) I'm kind of happy that this song turned out to be a Nightmare song :D And for those of you who are curious the actual first song alphabetically is LM.C-~A Sound Odyssey~ which is just a short -SE- track from their Wonderful Wonderholic album
        Day 23: Favorite song by an underrated band
        Purple Stone-BLAME

        Okay so there's actually a lot of songs that I could've used for this one so many in fact that it could be it's own separate journal (which I may do one day) but I want to give Purple Stone some recognition because I can't stress enough how amazing their music is and how much it disappoints me that they don't have more fans! I can foresee big things for this band :moved:

        Day 24: A song from the year you started listening to Jrock
        REALies-NuAGE

        So this one is a little out of left field ne? I technically started listening to Jrock in 2011 because that's when I started listening to songs that weren't from anime~ And why did I pick this song instead of being biased and choosing a song from one of my favorite bands? Well I thought it would be cool to not only pic a song from 2011 but to pick a song by a band that debuted that year as well~ And I just want to say that when I first found this song at the end of 2011 I was pronouncing REALies name "Reallys" instead of "Realize" and NuAGE as "Neu-Ahj" instead of "New Age" so now I say those the incorrect way as a joke because it's the stupidest thing XD

        Day 25: A song from your favorite album
        exist†trace-RAZE

        How many of you are shocked that I chose a song from WORLD MAKER for this one? No one? Good :p I mean considering how much I fanboy over this album it shouldn't be much of a surprise that it's my favorite~ And I chose RAZE because I love the mixture of exist†trace's old sound with the growling with their new sound :moved:

        So that was part 5! As usual I hope you guys enjoyed reading that as much as I did writing it! And can you believe I only have two more of these to do? I bet y'all are just waiting for me to finish this so I can write about other things :p
        Anyways that's all I have for today~ So until next time... bye guys!

          Ahoyhoy y'all! I can't think of an intro so we're just going to jump right into things! Which this is possibly the first time this has happened in 139 journals! That's pretty amazing if I do say so myself :P
          So here's part 4 of the song challenge! :D

          Day 16: A favourite in-concert performance
          So I think I may have touched on this in an earlier journal a couple months ago~ But my favorite live performance is:
          exist†trace-Daybreak
          https://www.youtu...

          So here's part 4 of the song challenge! :D

          Day 16: A favourite in-concert performance
          So I think I may have touched on this in an earlier journal a couple months ago~ But my favorite live performance is:
          exist†trace-Daybreak

          I don't really know how to explain why I love the live version of this song so much~ Maybe it's because you can really feel the energy of the song when they perform it live~ I really hope I can see this song at an exist†trace live one day :moved:

          Day 17: A song sung by your favorite male vocalist
          For this one I'm going to go with:
          vistlip-Drop Note

          Yes Tomo from vistlip is my favorite male vocalist~ And why did I choose this song you may ask? Well I feel like this song best showcases his vocal talents as he can rap and hit those high and low notes~ And that's the thing I love about Tomo is his amazing vocal range :moved:

          Day 18: A song sung by your favorite female vocalist
          For this one I'm going with:
          Aldious-Other World

          So if one of my answers from yesterday's journal was any indication I am in love with Re:NO's voice! In fact if I were to give you an unbiased answer I would say that she is my favorite female vocalist! :moved: And she's adorable too! On a side note here as I was looking for this video I found a comment video with her and Toki that was released yesterday and it was the cutest thing I've seen all week! :moved: Anyways~ I picked "Other World" because it's my favorite Aldious song and I'm happy I could find it on YouTube even though it took some digging

          Day 19: The last song you heard
          The last song I heard was:
          exist†trace-WONDERLAND

          What can I say? I'm exist†trace biased :p And I must say I really love this song! It's one of my favorites on their Virgin album! It's a fantastic example on how to start off an album on a strong note! (no pun intended)

          Day 20: The song with your favourite lyrics
          So I actually had to think about this one~ And like I said last time I almost chose Fallen Idols by SiM for this one but I ultimately chose to go with:
          Nightmare-Quints

          I chose this one mostly because I love the lyrics in the chorus (which are in English) I just love that they are expressing the fact that they make music for the love of it rather than trying to be the most famous band or to become super rich I think that's really cool it shows how much passion they really have for what they do and that's the best thing for a band and that's why they've been around for 15 years

          And that was part 4! We've officially passed the halfway point! Aren't you excited guys? Just three more journals and then I'll go back to ranting about whatever crap I used to rant about before I started doing this!
          Anyways that's all I have for today! So until next time... Bye guys!

            Bonjour mon amis! Je m'appelle Nightgaze!
            Dude why are you speaking French? Because I'm Canadian and it was a requirement in school?
            And this folks is what happens when I try to think of an interesting way to start off a journal and fail horribly!
            Oh well I think you guys know the drill at this point so without any further delay here we go! Part 3 of the 35 song challenge! :D

            Oh well I think you guys know the drill at this point so without any further delay here we go! Part 3 of the 35 song challenge! :D

            Day 11: Your favourite music video
            Okay so this one was probably the hardest one for me to think of because there's so many that I love watching! But then I thought of this PV and I was like "Nah this is easy" and that PV is:
            exist†trace-Diamond

            I probably don't really need to explain why it's my favorite because most of you already know *cough*Miko's legs*cough* who said that!? All joking aside this is my favorite look of Miko's and it's not just because of the short skirt though that does certainly help I just think the whole ensemble looks really good on her! And I love the concept and effects of the video as well~ Add in a catchy tune and you've got yourself one hell of a PV! :D

            Day 12: A favourite vocal performance
            This one wasn't too hard for me to think of my favorite vocal performance is:
            Aldious-菊花 (Kikubana)

            Honestly I wanted to use Aldious' "I Don't Like Me" but the full version isn't on YouTube but Kikubana is just as good! I swear I am in love with Re:NO's voice! It's seriously what I would imagine angels to sound like :moved: And those of you who really know me know that I'm not too big on slow songs but this woman makes me love them! I could go on about how much I love Re:NO's voice all day but you can't really understand unless you hear it for yourself~

            Day 13: The song that introduced you to Jrock
            So I could do one of two things here: 1) Post the first full version of a Jrock song I ever listened to or 2) Post the song that made me want to listen to more of the genre and I think both are equally as valid so I'll post both!
            For the first full version of a Jrock song that I listened to we have:
            High and Mighty Color-Ichirin No Hana

            Those of you who have watched Bleach should be familiar with this song~ When I heard it for the first time in the anime I immediately went online to look it up so I could listen to it over and over because I loved it so much
            And for the song that made me want to listen to more Jrock we have:
            Nightmare-Raison D'etre

            So by the time I got around to watching Claymore I already realized how awesome Japanese music was but when I heard this I was absolutely stunned! It was the coolest song I had ever heard and I instantly needed to hear more from Nightmare!

            Day 14: A favourite non-VK Jrock song
            So my favorite non-VK Jrock song came out last year and has passed a certain other song by this same band to become my favorite regular Jrock song and that is:
            SiM-Fallen Idols

            This song almost became the song that had my favorite lyrics but I decided to mention it here instead it's a really creative song that doesn't stick to one sound the whole way through and that's really what I love about SiM they can have a raggae/punk sound at one moment and then be screaming and headbanging the next and that's why they're my favorite regular Jrock band because they're so different from the rest and this song is a great example of that

            Day 15: A favourite Jmetal song
            So my favorite Jmetal song is also a song that came out last year and it's:
            Mary's Blood-Marionette

            This shouldn't be too much of a surprise since I named this song my top song of 2014 it's an epic metal track by 4 very talented and very beautiful musicians I don't know what to say about it that I haven't already said but I must reiterate how amazing Saki's guitar skills are! Like look at her fingers go in the guitar solo! It's fantastic! And albeit a little hot :crazy:

            So that's part 3! I'd like to thank everyone who is reading these journals because I know there's a lot of these going on right now and mine are way longer than the other ones so I hope you all are enjoying reading these even if there aren't many of you :)
            But anyways that's all I have for today! So until next time... Bye guys!

              So without too much rambling today here's part 2! And some of the questions in this part have been altered so they fit my version of the challenge better so enjoy!

              Day 6: Favorite Mousou Nikki cover
              This ...

              AhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHh!!!!!! Hello guys! I don't know why I screamed at you but we're going with it!
              So today is day two of this song challenge thing that no one is reading but I'm doing this anyways because it's fun and 50 jpops is always a cool thing to have :p
              So without too much rambling today here's part 2! And some of the questions in this part have been altered so they fit my version of the challenge better so enjoy!

              Day 6: Favorite Mousou Nikki cover
              This question was originally about your favorite musical but there's no musical in Visual Kei! Though if there were that would be amazing and I would watch the hell out of that! So instead since there's like 50 million covers of SID's Mousou Nikki I've decided to make a "challenge" dedicated to that~ So my favorite Mousou Nikki cover (Which I realize I never talked about before) is:
              Moran's cover!

              I honestly feel like Moran did the best cover of this song even though they aren't my favorite band that did the cover (that's probably DaizyStripper) but I really like what Moran did with the song! They made it their own while still staying true to the original song Hitomi's voice sounds like little bit deeper version of what Mao's voice sounded like in the original version of this song They made it their own while still staying true to the original song

              Day 7: The first song you heard by your favourite band
              Well as you all know my favorite band is now exist†trace so the first song I heard by them was:
              RESONANCE

              I was hooked the moment I listened to this song! And it was also love at first site for Miko <3

              Day 8: Favorite song by a classic VK band (80’s or 90’s)
              So this is a pretty straightforward question my favorite classic VK song is:
              PIERROT-Torikago

              So this might be a bit of a surprise to most of you but I actually really like this song! And I'm sure some of you will think I'm biased once I tell you how I found out about this song but I swear I just legitimately really like this song! I found it because a couple months ago Miko went to a PIERROT live and she tweeted about this song so naturally I decided to check it out and I must say I'm really happy I did because this song is awesome!

              Day 9: A song that makes you happy
              There's quite a few songs that make me happy but a song that never fails to put a smile on my face is:
              Golden Bomber-Memeshikute

              So up until I got to writing out my response to this challenge my answer was going to be Five Starz by SuG but then I thought to myself "you know what song I can't help but smile when it plays on my iPod? Memeshikute" Just thinking of the music video and hearing the song makes me happy no matter what

              Day 10: A song that makes you sad
              Jumping into my answer to this one a song that makes me sad (not to the point of tears or to the point where I just can't listen to it) is:
              SCANDAL-Haruka

              Okay so this one has a bit of a long back story that those of you who have known me for a while should know exactly why I put this song here and if you don't you can post on my wall or message me asking about it because I don't feel like getting into that in this journal just know that it's related to a girl which sucks that it has that association because I like this song and enjoy watching the PV because the SCANDAL girls are looking really good in it >.<

              So on that somewhat depressing note that's part 2 of my 7 days of music challenges! (That's a good name for it right?) I hope you guys enjoy reading mine even though there's like 100 of these going on right now so nobody is reading this because they're tired of seeing this bull crap so this is going to be a Mr.Lonely journal this ish sho shad :o Oh well I'm still having fun with this!
              But that's all I have for now so until next time... Bye guys!

                Hello hello everyone! It's your old pal Nightgaze here! And if we aren't pals what are you doing here?
                Just kidding~ Everyone is welcome here! Except for Pigeons because the last time I let pigeons in here they just pooped all over the place and it wasn't a fun time!
                Anyways where was I? Oh yes here I am with something completely original that no one has done on this site ever before this is all me I came up with it-- Nah just kidding I took this from Sarde (I hope I spelled yo...

                Hello hello everyone! It's your old pal Nightgaze here! And if we aren't pals what are you doing here?
                Just kidding~ Everyone is welcome here! Except for Pigeons because the last time I let pigeons in here they just pooped all over the place and it wasn't a fun time!
                Anyways where was I? Oh yes here I am with something completely original that no one has done on this site ever before this is all me I came up with it-- Nah just kidding I took this from Sarde (I hope I spelled your username right! I'm too lazy to check >.<) and I guess a bunch of other people had the same idea: So here's the 35 day song challenge! That I'm changing to the 7 day VK challenge because since I'm so busy with work and stuff I will likely be too busy/tired to keep this going for 35 days! Also I like to be original even if it's still something that everyone is doing!
                So the way this is going to work is that I'm actually going to do 5 of the questions? Challenges? Whatever they're called per day and I'm modifying the questions to fit Jrock/VK because I would not be able to answer the Kpop questions :p
                But without further adieu here's Day 1 of the 7 day Jrock/VK Challenge with 35 challenges!
                That title is way too long and redundant with me saying challenge twice >.<

                Day 1: Your favourite song of all time
                Okay so this one took some deep soul searching to figure out because I could do it one of two ways: 1) I could use my favorite song of all time as of right now or 2) My out right favorite song of all time but the first one is too easy so I'll do the first one! And my answer is:
                Nightmare-Dirty

                Not only is this my favorite Nightmare song but it actually holds a lot of meaning to me because it's the song that made me realize that I needed to download all of their songs because they're just amazing! And if it weren't for this song I wouldn't be on this site and had the chance to meet so many amazing people :moved:

                Day 2: Favourite song with a color in the title
                Another tough question! They weren't kidding when they called this a challenge! But it ultimately came down to this song:
                The GazettE-Red

                One of the first songs I heard by them and I was instantly hooked! But most of you should know why :p The honorable mention for this one is Blue by ViViD

                Day 3: A song that you listen to when you travel
                Now this one is a little weird to me because I don't really have a specific song for travelling so I'll choose a song that I think is an epic song to walk to (there's a lot :p) My choice is:
                DELUHI-s[k]ape:goat

                I just love the sense of urgency this song has and I just feel really epic when I'm walking and this song is playing in the background

                Day 4: The song with the highest play count on your iTunes/ iPod/ mp3 player
                Well this one is easy it's:
                xTRiPx-RIDE-HAZARD

                This song is literally meth for the ears :moved:

                Day 5: Favourite cover version of a song
                This one was another really close toss up between two songs but I decided to go with:
                NoGoD-Invoke (T.M.Revolution cover)

                This one won because it's the only cover that I happen to like better than the original I honestly think NoGoD made this song sound more epic~ Sorry TMR fans don't kill me >.< The runner up if y'all are curious is Nightmare's cover of A Friend Like Me from Aladdin

                So that was Day 1 of 7 and the first 5 challenges! I hope people are interested in reading mine as well as the other challenges~ This should be interesting because I'm sure everyone's are gonna be drastically different!
                But that's all for today! So until next time... Bye guys!

                  Yes I know I'm insane I think I make that point in every journal I've ever written :undecided: But I guess I should get to the point of this ne?
                  Well I'm sure some of you have noticed my sudden lack of activity on here when it comes to replying or rather the fact that my responses have become really spaced apart more so than usual and the reason for that is- drumroll please! ... Why am I trying to make this dramatic and suspenseful? You guys clicked on this you know what the title is >.< Yes! I got a job! Again! Finally! I feel so relieved! Because honestly I really hate the job searching process it's like my least favorite things in the world! Like you either have to go into the store and awkwardly hand in your resume to some person and pretend like you really want the job but you're really like "I don't care what job I get and I just want money" Let's be honest here you guys all think that! Well you do when you're looking for a part time job to get money for school and for the Jrock fund (if you're me)
                  And then there's stupid online applications! Where I'm not even sure if the employer gets the application half the time! Like you know how trustworthy technology is sometimes! And my least favorite things about online applications is when they make you fill out these super long 100 question surveys and then near the end you're like "didn't they ask me this question like three times already" Like the hell!? Get better questions! And sometimes I'm just like "what am I doing? Applying for a job or setting up a dating profile? Because for all this work I should be getting a job and a hot girlfriend Mr. StupidSurveyThatTakesAwayAnHourOfMyPreciousTimeThatCouldBeBetterSpentStaringBlanklyAtAComputerScreen!"
                  And then there's the interview process! Good Lord Jesus Mary Joseph, the Camel, The Manger, and that one guy who gave the mur! (what is mur anyways? :undecided:) Anyways... where was I? Oh yes I hate doing interviews! And let me tell you I went through a lot of those! And like I'm never prepared for some questions and then I'm just stuttering like an asshole and they're probably just like "I'm not hiring this socially inept poophead!" And there was this one interview question I got that was like "How lucky would you say you are on a scale of 1-10?" Like what!? What does that have to do with the job!? This is a hardware store not a casino good sir and/or madam!
                  But yes through all that trouble I came out on top with a job in the Garden Center at Wal-Mart! And I must say I couldn't have asked for a better environment like all of my co-workers are super nice cool and helpful! I actually feel welcome there at a job that I would probably hate otherwise~ Also having money is a great feeling! :D
                  But that's all I have for now~ And I have no idea how this turned into a rant about job searching :undecided: Sorry about that lol but I guess these things happen! Especially with me! But you guys probably expect that at this point~
                  But until next time... Bye guys!

                    Night-sama: Idiot! This isn't your show!
                    Anyways where was I? Ah yes how are you all doing today? I'm doing good but I'm bored and by bored I mean I'm listening to music so I need something to do with my hands (not that you perverts >.<) So I was looking around my room thinking of what I could possibly write about and I decided to write about my Jrock collection! Namely my CDs! Because I'm super proud of my collection and it's gotten fairly big over the years
                    So basically what I'm gonna do here is give a little review of each album and then say my favorite song in said album because why not? I hope this is interesting lol And let's just say this is "Part 1" because I have a lot of CDs and it would take forever to write about them all in one journal and I don't want to put myself or you guys through that :o (Also I'm posting the album artwork for the edition that I have)
                    Also in the comments try to guess how many Jrock albums I own! And if you guess it correct (or you're the closest) I'll give you a spam of your bias or a spam of your favorite band! That's fun ne? (Hint: The number of albums I have isn't a whole number (a number that ends in 5 or 0))

                    Nightmare-Ultimate Circus
                    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41sOwEm%2B%2BfL.jpg
                    Favorite song: Believe

                    So this was Nightmare's first ever album and I thought I would never own it because it was out of print~ But the completionist in me scoured the internet for this album and after being scammed by Amazon where I tried ordering it from first I thought I would never own it~ But then I finally found it on Japan-Discoveries and this time I finally received this coveted album! And this is a super well put together album! Personally it's one of my favorite Nightmare albums! It's definitely in the top 5!

                    Nightmare-Livid
                    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/82/Livid_Nightmare_Album.jpg
                    Favorite song: Underdog

                    Nightmare's second album features more slow songs (Like Suna <3) than Ultimate Circus I don't know what else I can say about it other than it's a very solid album~ And it came with a DVD containing the PV for Sekishoku

                    Nightmare-Anima
                    http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/55335609/anima.png
                    Favorite song: JASHIN TO BARA

                    This is definitely Nightmare's slowest album and I'm not really a big fan of slow songs but this is Nightmare we're talking about! They don't have a single bad song in my eyes and it contains one of my absolute favorite songs by them: JASHIN TO BARA

                    Nightmare-GIANIZM ~Nightmare no Kuse ni Namaiki Dazo~
                    http://www.jpopasia.com/img/album-covers/1/4640-aqegvtb9lt-zy7x.jpg
                    Favorite song: Daisei Boogie

                    So this album is basically a best of compilation album of their indie songs and it's super amazing! Whenever I listen to it I just remember Nightmare in the old days and how much they've changed and grown :moved:

                    Nightmare-WORLD RULER
                    http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/images/covers/nightmare-the-world-%E3%82%A2%E3%83%AB%E3%83%9F%E3%83%8A(single)-20130309232837.jpg
                    Favorite song: Boys Be Suspicious

                    This is probably every new Nightmare fan's go to album when first checking out their music because it has the super popular songs The World and Alumina on it~ And let me say this is a fantastic album for new fans because this is one of Nightmare's strongest albums with their previously mentioned Death Note tracks which no doubt were the selling point for this album is also supported by gems such as Boys Be Suspicious, Criminal Baby, Alice, Morpho etc.

                    Nightmare-Killer Show
                    http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/pictures/l/05/24/VPCC-81598.jpg
                    Favorite song: Dirty

                    This was one of the first Jrock albums that I ever owned and it was the first Nightmare album that I listened to in full because it has Raison D'etre which was the first song I ever heard of them and what got me hooked on the band so sufficed to say that this album holds a very special place in my heart and that's why it's my favorite album of theirs <3

                    Nightmare-Majestical Parade
                    http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/visualkei/images/7/7c/Nightmare_majestical_parade.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130630154526
                    Favorite song: Can You Do It?/Naked Love

                    Okay this is one album where I literally can't explain why I love it so much I just think every single song on this album is really solid making for a super solid album! It's a must listen to :D

                    Nightmare-NIGHTMARE
                    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51xp3EwdkJL._SY300_.jpg
                    Favorite song: SLEEPER

                    This was one of my first albums that I owned along with Killer Show and I got it around when it came out and I loved it! It's Nightmare's darkest album sound wise and every song on this album is super well composed my only issue with this album is that midway through the album the songs start sounding the same but they correct that near the end of the album~

                    Nightmare-SCUMS
                    http://japan-discoveries.com/images/album_nightmare_scums%20limited%20edition%20type%20A_00.jpg
                    Favorite song: Owaru Sekai no Hajimaru wa Kinari

                    This is my second favorite album by Nightmare for the simple reason that it is probably their most well put together album every song is so nicely composed and the order they put the songs in is just... wow the songs are fantastic on their own but this is definitely an album best experienced from start to finish in it's proper order

                    Nightmare-To Be or Not To Be
                    http://japan-discoveries.com/images/album_nightmare_to%20be%20or%20not%20to%20be%20limited%20B_00.jpg
                    Favorite song: Rewrite

                    I was actually very interested to see what direction they'd take this album when I heard the super unique title and it looks like they went back to their darker style that they had in NIGHTMARE and this time I must say it worked out really well for them :moved:

                    Okay so I think 10 albums is a good place to stop for now! Let me know if you want a part two of this and I might just write it tomorrow :D And if you want me to mix it up next time instead of just listing the CDs I own from one band let me know!
                    But that's all I have for now! So until next time... Bye guys!

                      Hey there guys and welcome back to.... What am I welcoming you to? Welcome back to the journals section of my profile? Man that intro derailed itself fast... Good job Night... where's my "Best Intos" Award? I want it now dammit! There's no one here.... I'm literally demanding for an award in a dark room with no one else in it other than that creepy little girl in a white dress covered in blood that stands at the end of my bed.... seriously how do I get rid of her? To I call an exterminator? I don't know... she won't take any of my cookie bribes to go away >.<
                      What is with that weird intro?
                      Speaking of weird let me get to my point
                      Did you guys see that segway!? Damn I should get the "Best Segway" Award as well! Look at me raking these imaginary awards! :cool:
                      But recently I've realized that there are some weird things in this world and about me that are just really weird and I would like to share them with you good people so without further adieu I should get to that! :D
                      The first thing is a weird thing about me... I get nervous when I'm about to watch a video that has a girl I'm attracted to in it am I the only person who feels like this? Let me explain like I'll be on YouTube looking up exist†trace videos and low and behold (is that how you say that? :undecided:) there'll be a new comment by them or even a new live clip and I'll just tense up and my heart will start pounding and I'll just hover over the video with my cursor hesitating to click it it's the weirdest thing! Like first of all what am I so nervous for? It's not like this will put me face to face with Miko like in the same room as her yet for some reason my brain wants to interpret it like that and all of the sudden I'm covered in sweat it's the weirdest thing please someone tell me I'm not the only person who does this?
                      Second weird thing I've noticed recently in my head (that was a sentence...) Some sayings in the English language make absolutely no sense if you think about them! Like the phrase "You can't have your cake and eat it too" like I'm sorry yes I can have my cake and eat it too! I'm pretty sure that's how cake works actually! Like on your birthday no one is like "Happy birthday! Here's your cake! But you're not allowed to eat it!" Unless you had really mean parents in which case I'm so sorry! Here you can have my cake and eat it too *hands you cake*
                      Or how about the phrase "Head over heels in love" Uhm.. news flash whoever made this phrase up; your head is always above your head! Your argument is invalid good sir madam or parakeet! (I don't judge) The phrase should be "Heels over head in love" silly phrase creating parakeets
                      Thirdly...thricely... somethingly... This might be a guy thing or just a me thing or an everyone thing I don't know (aren't I just the most eloquent person?) But when I have a crush on someone I try my hardest to make her laugh like normally I just let funny things kind of happen like a true comedian even though I am no comedian or maybe I am we'll let the courts decide that one... I don't know either... but when I have a crush on a girl I try to force jokes sometimes so I end up saying the stupidest things! Like today I was talking to a girl who I may or may not like (that's another one for the courts to decide) and we were exchanging VK bands and my brain thinks it's a great idea to say "It's like we have a take a penny leave a penny thing going on except it's VK bands" Like WTF Night!? Why are you stupid!? That's not funny! You just sound lame! LAME! LAMEY LAME LAME! I turn into the biggest dork/idiot ever when I like a girl! So if this happens when I'm talking to you... yeah just take it as a compliment and pretend I'm funny and we'll all be good!
                      Finally another weird thing people do or at least I hope this is a thing everyone does but let me tell you I am a little antagonist in my head sometimes if I feel like things could possibly get tense because of something I said or just the way the conversation is going it makes it seem like there will be an argument I will be rehearsing that argument in my head and gurl I'm sorry to break this to you but I be winnin' that imaginary squabble (that's a funny word "squabble" XD) And the sad thing about that is an argument almost never happens so then I'm left being like "damn I had the best comeback for that!" Or like the rare time an argument does start I forget all the good points I had and end up losing the argument and feeling like an idiot! But I'll tell you what I totally had you in my head! >.< And chances are if I've talked to you for a long time this has happened at least once
                      But that's all I can think of for now! But I know there's a lot more weird things I could talk about so maybe there'll be a part two if you guys find this interesting~ And let me know if there's any weird things you do or have noticed! :D
                      Also it was Miko's birthday yesterday and I made this picture for her and I'm super proud of how it turned out so Imma post it here! :D

                      But that's all I have to say for now! So until next time... Bye guys!
