    Yo yo yo my name is Joe and I have a hoe because I like to garden!
    ... I don't know what that was other than proof that I shouldn't be a rapper :undecided:
    Anyways hey what's up you guys? How are y'all doin' on this fiiine summer evening or morning depending on where you are
    So I don't know how many of you read my journal where I talked about my New Year's resolutions for 2015~ But one of them was to keep up with as many Jrock and Visual Kei releases as possible and I must say I've been sticking to that so far! Aren't you all proud of me? You know how to show your proudness? By giving me a cookie~ Yeah that would be awesome :moved:
    Anyways since I've been keeping up with that I've found a lot of really awesome songs that I wouldn't have found otherwise in fact I found enough songs to do a Top 15 songs list for the first half of the year! Yeah looks like you're gonna get three of these lists this year! Aren't you all excited? No? Well I tried ....smelly poo poo heads
    So this list has the same rules as last time: One song per artist otherwise anything goes! So without further adieu here are my top 15 Jrock/Visual Kei songs from the first half of 2015!

    15) vistlip-LAYOUT

    Okay so you know that I've found a lot of really awesome songs this year when vistlip just barely makes the list! That said I did love their newest album LAYOUT (not as much as CHRONUS though) and the song of the same name is my favorite song on the album (that's not Period or Jack) and I think the thing I like the most is the fact that vistlip combines a heavy sound for the verses with a softer chorus I think it's a unique song structure and it's very well done but then again I'm a bit vistlip biased considering they're my 3rd favorite band <3

    14) LIPHLICH-イーカロス (Icarus)

    LIPHLICH is a band I started listening to around the end of 2014 and they've been growing on me ever since I love their unique sound especially Kuga's voice~ And this is a fantastic acoustic song! Normally I'm not too into acoustic songs but LIPHLICH does a really good job with this one I especially love the catchy chorus and the bit of Latin flare the instrumental has

    13) SuG-BLACK

    I'm gonna be honest at first I didn't like this song when I first heard it I thought it was really bland for SuG but since one of my friends was obsessed with it (you know who you are) and the fact that it was SuG I gave it another listen and I listened to more than just Takeru's singing and noticed the instrumentation more and that's when I fell in love with this song it's super epic! And I like the direction SuG is going in

    12) Lycaon-Gypsy

    So this one is a little sad for me considering the fact that Lycaon is disbanding but at least they're going out on such a strong note! Gypsy is a masterpiece with the Latin flare the instrumentals have with Yuuki's voice being pure sex which is perfect in the chorus like no one could do this song like Lycaon and that just goes to show you what talented musicians they are and I'm surely going to miss them~ Also why is Yuuki so sexy!?

    11) NoGoD-walk

    Have I ever told you guys that I love NoGoD? This band is just way too good for words! And to be honest I didn't really think of anything special to say about this song so instead of rambling I'll just let the song speak for itself

    10) Cyntia-KISS KISS KISS
    Click here to watch the PV otherwise here's the song on YouTube:

    I bet some of you were wondering when a female band would show up on here starting up the top 10 we have Cyntia! So as some of you may know I've become obsessed with this band for most of this year and this song has constantly been getting stuck in my head at random points since I've heard it~ I don't know about you guys but this (like most of Cyntia's songs) is super catchy and for those reasons I thought it would be a crime to not include this song on the list also I've really wanted to make this joke: I'd love to KISS KISS KISS Yui <3 <3 <3 :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

    9) DIAURA-RUIN

    Is anyone really surprised that DIAURA made this list? I mean this band is consistently awesome and I feel really stupid for not keeping up with them sooner! Also I want to mention that my go to PV for them was Lost November so going from that look to this was interesting to say the least~ But I love their visuals in this one! Especially Kei's hair~ And really the song speaks for itself all I really need to say is it's DIAURA and y'all have an idea of how good it is

    8) Royz-The Beginning

    Is anyone surprised that Royz is on this list? Like with DIAURA I don't need to tell you guys how good Royz is~ But I have to say that although I miss Kazuki I'm happy to see that this band is as strong as ever! Though if we're comparing BPR bands' releases this year this isn't my favorite (I guess that's a spoiler for some of the songs ahead ne?)

    7) xaa-xaa-どうしゃぶりの彼女 (Doushaburi no Kanojo)

    So earlier this year I found Belmosaic and quite liked them but then I found out that they disbanded and was a little disappointed that I missed out on following a band that I had grown to like but shortly after I found out that the members were forming a new band called xaa-xaa so naturally I decided to listen to them and this was the song (that a friend sent to me) that made me decide to follow this band~ This song is super catchy and shows off how much potential this band has and I hope they find success in the future because they deserve it

    6) MEJIBRAY-Nepenthes

    Remember in last years list when I promised that I'd keep up with MEJIBRAY? Well now I'm really happy I did because they released another amazing song this year! Sorry to those who prefer Eiki but I'm not too into slow songs~ Honestly Tsuzuku's screaming is one of the best in all of Visual Kei~ And I have to point out the fact that Meto is so badass that he doesn't even need to play the drums all he needs to do is play around with a baseball bat in the background XD

    5) Codomo Dragon-WARUAGAKI

    You know what band has a knack for making catchy songs? Codomo Dragon like seriously first VIPer and now this? It's songs like these that are the reason that I bought their new album! (that and the signed poster) seriously this song would win for "new song that gets stuck in my head the most" I'm serious that's how catchy it is! And I love the bass in this song meN-meN is a super talented bassist and I'd love to be able to play Codomo Dragon songs on bass in the future :moved:

    4) Nightmare-Quints
    Click here to watch the PV

    Nightmare is my favorite band for a reason~ Because they continually release amazing songs that I just fall in love with! Like this song is super epic sounding and I love how they all sing in the chorus (except for RUKA of course) I feel like it really enhances the chorus' meaning of that they make music for the love of it and not for profit :moved: They are just superbly talented musicians~ What else can I say really?

    3) THE GALLO-INCUBUS

    THE GALLO is another band I fell in love with this year~ It all started when I heard 夢宴 (Muen) and when I saw they had a new PV out I decided to check it out and I definitely was not disappointed! This song is freaking amazing! I love everything about it! The instrumentation, the fact the members sing in the pre-chorus, and most of all the chorus itself it's so good and I love JoJo's voice in it! He has a super cool sounding voice and I am excited to hear more from this band now if they always release gems like this!

    2) Kiryu-九尾 (Kyuubi)

    So who guessed that this was my favorite BPR band song released this year? Well if you did Conglaturation! XD I love this song! It's so chaotic but in the best way and I love how most of the members get featured in a solo in this song (poor Junji lol) this song made me want to go back and listen to Kiryu more and it's truly made me realize how good this band is :moved:

    1) DaizyStripper-ARREST

    This was the moment you've all been waiting for! My number 1 song for the first half of 2015 is ARREST by DaizyStripper! Yes this song was released all the way back in January and it remained my favorite song of the year till now~ That alone should speak for how amazing this song is! I really like this darker turn DaizyStripper has taken :moved:

    So there you have it! Those are my top 15 Jrock/Visual Kei songs released from January-June 2013! Stay tuned for the second half of the year in December as well as my overall list~ It should be fun times :D
    Also let me know what you think of my list and tell me what your favorite songs released this year so far are! But that's all I have for now so until next time... Bye guys!

    • So... Someone Tried To Scam Me

      Posted on 10 June, 2015 (3 months ago) by Nightgaze · 93 views · 2 comments · 1 likes

      *Silence* So..... yeah.... A thing happened and I know how to feel about it :undecided:
      Today is gonna be a kind of serious journal but let's be honest if any of you know me really well you know I like to use humor to get through things so I'm probably going to make jokes anyways because I am your clown who is here to amuse you by being funny
      That sounds like I'm complaining :o It's not complaining! I like being funny! It's all I'm good for! *runs and cries in a corner*
      I should also mention that I'm sleep deprived... otherwise I wouldn't have gone on a segway there... like a mall cop... like Paul Blart... the ultimate bad ass
      Shut up Night-nii! I'm taking over! *throws brick at Night-nii* This is Night-sama here and I'M going to tell you about this foolish human who tried to scam me
      Yes you read that right some guy actually tried to scam me while I was working no less!
      So I was working stocking shelves while having very deep existential thoughts-
      Night-nii: He was day dreaming about Miko and Yui!
      *throws another brick* Shut up you idiot!
      Anyways... so this guy comes up to me and asks me what bank I use and I told him and he was like :oh because I use *insert bank name here* and I was wondering if someone could give me directions"
      And I was like "sorry I don't know" and the guy walks away and I just thought of it as another one of those random silly customer interactions that happen when you work in retail but it wasn't *dun dun dun*
      A couple minutes later the guy came back and asked me if I could go over to the TD bank with him to cash a cheque for him and I was like "I'm sorry I can't do that I'm working" and he asked me when I got off and I didn't give him a straight answer I just said "later" because bitch don't need to know when I get off heh heh "get off" XD And he said "okay could you give me your card and I'll go do it and I'll bring it back I'll even give you some money in return"
      And my response was naturally "I'm sorry I don't feel comfortable doing that"
      But this guy keeps on pushing saying "I really need to cash this cheque so I can get my cell phone back" (That's in red because you'll need to remember that for later)
      And I just repeated myself saying I didn't feel comfortable doing that
      So he asks me "why not?"
      "Because I literally just met you 5 minutes ago" I replied backing away a little bit
      "How about you go to the ATM and take out $120 for me?" He replied stepping towards me
      "Uh... I don't know if I can do that I really don't want to get in trouble with my manager for going to the ATM while I'm on duty"
      "Then you can give me your card and I'll go get the money"
      "I'm not giving you my card"
      "Why not"
      "Because I just met you so I can't really trust you nothing personal"
      "I'm a stand up guy I'll leave my cell phone with you so then I have to come give you your card back"
      Did you guys catch that? He said he'd give me his cell phone... you know the cell phone he didn't have... maybe he would've given me one of those novelty cell phones with candy in it... Ooh or even better! Maybe he would've given me a Barbie cell phone! That would've been the greatest gift! Night-sama! Can I have a Barbie cell phone for my birthday?
      Night-sama: No! And why can't you stay knocked out"
      Night-nii: Because I don't have a Brian in my head
      Night-sama: ...Just shut up...
      Anyways at this point my brain hatched an idea... "Okay let me go to the back to go get my wallet" I said
      "Okay you're not going to talk to any managers are you?"
      "I'm going to the back" I replied as I walked to the backroom to the manager's office where I told a duty manager (the highest up I could possibly get in the store with out going to the head manager) and told him what happened so he went out to look for the guy but unfortunately couldn't find him but he told my department manager to tell the guy to leave if he came back
      So after that I went on my lunch break which was an hour long and I thought "Okay there's no way he's still here he must've seen the managers looking for him and left not to mention I haven't been out there for an hour there's no way he's that dedicated" I was wrong however
      After about 10 minutes of being on the floor he approaches me again and asked what happened and I just told him "I looked for my wallet in the back but then realized I forgot it at home" This was a complete lie because I had my wallet in my pocket the whole time I just wanted him to go away and he did walk away but this wasn't the last I saw of Mr.Ass Canoe (I'm sorry I love that insult XD)
      He came back up to me and said "Why did you lie to me?"
      And I was a bit taken aback by this and was like "I didn't lie I checked my jacket and my wallet wasn't in there"
      "I talked to that lady and she told me everything that happened you told your managers"
      And I'm going to pause here and say what I should have done at this point... I should've asked him to explain more but I was panicking at this point and I assumed he was talking about my department manager who is a woman so I just apologized and told him that he made me feel really uncomfortable so I felt that I had no other choice and he walks away again
      But I thought about it for a minute and it seemed odd to me that my manager would just explain everything like that so I went to find her and ask her if she actually talked to him and she said she didn't (I want to make a note here saying that when I was looking for my manager in the back room I saw Mr. Ass Canoe looking around the grocery department still which makes me think he was looking for me) so she gets some more duty managers to go on the floor to look for him and they questioned me about the whole situation but once again they didn't find him but they told me they'd keep an eye out for him
      But luckily I didn't see him again though for the rest of my shift I was just worried about him waiting outside for me when I got off work which thank Miko that he wasn't!
      And that's the end of my story I honestly never thought I'd be put in a situation like that it was really uncomfortable and a little bit scary because I didn't know if this guy was gonna start being hostile thankfully he wasn't though I think this left a little bit of a scar on me and I still get a really weird uncomfortable feeling thinking about it I almost feel violated
      But I feel good about sharing this~ This is what happens when you try to pull something on me I tell everyone about it and make fun of you on the internet so take that! Ha ha! XD
      But anyways that's all I have for now~ So until next time... Bye guys!

        What am I even saying anymore? I don't even know anymore... And if I don't know what I'm talking about y'all should be worried
        Anyways I should get to the point of my journal ne? I mean that's why you clicked on this journal anyways not to hear me talk about my super store opening... unless that's why you clicked here and if that is why you know me better than I do because how could you possibly guess I'd be talking about that in a journal called "The VK Guys That I Really Wish Were Born As Women"? :o
        Okay I promise I'll get to my point now! So this is a journal I've wanted to write for a really long time now and I think now is a good time to do so (wow using now twice in a sentence... I English goodly)
        So if you guys are expecting a long list this is not the right journal because there's only 3 Visual Kei guys who I actually wish were born as women every time I see them~ That's not to say that I only find 3 pretty because I find a lot of them pretty but there's only a select few that make me wish they were another gender
        Also spoiler alert! Hizaki isn't on this list XD

        Number 1) Yuuki (Lycaon)

        Do I even need to use words? This man is too sexy! >.<

        Number 2) Hiyori (Kiryu)

        https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/87/25/99/87259991919aa0ff6b5aa58f661720ac.jpg

        Hiyori is definitely the cutest Jrock cross dresser out there <3 And if you argue you're just wrong :p

        Number 3) Koichi (MEJIBRAY)

        He's a recent addition to this list~ I don't know what it is he's just super pretty :moved:

        So those are the three VK guys that I wish were born as women because they're so damn beautiful that it's not fair! What VK guys do you guys wish were born as women? And for the girls who are reading this what VK girls (Out of the few that there are) do you wish were men?
        Well that's all I have for now so until next time... Bye guys!

            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!

              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 >.<

              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!

              • 35 Day Song Challenge Jrock/VK edition! (Days 21-25)

                Posted on 13 May, 2015 (4 months ago) by Nightgaze · 64 views · 0 comments · 0 likes

                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 opin...

                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!

                • 35 Day Song Challenge Jrock/VK edition! (Days 16-20)

                  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

                  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

                    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!

                      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!
