    A-hoy-hoy guys gals and sock puppets! This time on Night-nii's Fun Playhouse we're going to learn about the letter C! Some words that start with the letter C are Bison, applesauce, seven... *gets hit over the head*
    Night-sama: Idiot! This isn't your show!

    A-hoy-hoy guys gals and sock puppets! This time on Night-nii's Fun Playhouse we're going to learn about the letter C! Some words that start with the letter C are Bison, applesauce, seven... *gets hit over the head*
    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!

        Hey guys! How's it going? Are you still breathing? You should be~ Because that is how you live my friends~
        Look at me starting off this journal with useful advice~ Breathing=Life and Not Breathing=Zombie so if you're reading this and not breathing and reading this you're a zombie
        Why do I have intros like these even when I wanna talk about a serious topic?
        I don't know I guess I have to have my signature horrible attempt to be funny... but that's why you guys love me right?... Right?.... TELL ME YOU LOVE ME! T_T
        Anyways enough being a desperate attention whore and get to the point why don't you? Stupid Night stop being stupid
        So how do I lead into this topic....? Bananas~ They're yellow... Yellow Fever... There we go! You did it Night! Here's a cookie! Yay! Thanks me! :D
        Okay enough silliness let's get down to business to defeat the huns so Yellow Fever is actually a term I've learned recently~ Like I didn't even know it was a thing until I was watching someone I'm subscribed to on YouTube playing this dating sim game that kind of doubles as a Bejeweled clone and that term was used at one point and that got me to thinking about things... Things that I'm going to bring up in this journal
        But before I do this I'm going to throw some definitions at y'all... or rather one for now~ For those who don't know Yellow Fever is I'm not talking about the fatal disease of the liver and kidneys I'm not in bad health :p It's basically reference to white males who have a clear sexual preference for Asian women according to Urban Dictionary~ But I feel like this could apply to anyone male or female~ Unless you're Asian yourself... Does that count? I don't know someone please tell me >.<
        And the reason I bring this up is because I feel like some people might have the misconception that I fall under this whole Yellow Fever thing~ And I'm sure there are people out there especially on this site who feel this way as well so I want to kind of explain my preferences to y'all and debunk this misconception you may or may not have about me
        And I want to quickly want to say if you do have Yellow Fever is that a derogatory term? Should I stop using it? Imma come up.with a not offensive name for it... I'll just call it PANDAmonium because it combines Pandas and Asia and it's a pun :D but yes if you do have PANDAmonium I'm going to do my best not to bash you for being the way you are but Imma explain why I think it's kinda wrong... but if you don't want to change I can't stop you
        Also this kind of applies to any sort of racial preference I'm just gonna stick with the Asian because I feel like that's more of the demographic we have here
        So to start things off here I'm gonna throw some more definitions at you~ Or rather I'm gonna explain the difference between a racial preference and a racial fetish as it were:
        A racial preference is where you are physically attracted to the features of one race over others and this does not necessarily mean that you'd exclusively date a person from that race whereas a racial fetish is I guess an extremist and kinda racist form of the preference where you will exclusively date a person of whatever race you happen to like and you're really only dating the person because you like the idea of what their race represents to you in your mind and this is usually based solely on the stereotypes you have about whatever race it is
        No that the boring definitions are out of the way I'm going to explain why my love for Asian girls is a preference and not a fetish
        First off I do have crushes on some western celebrities that I never mention here such as Anne Hathaway (when she had long hair), Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, and Kiera Knightley~ I just feel more attracted to Miko, Yui, Rina, Saki etc Though the aforementioned women are extremely beautiful and the British accents on Emma and Kiera are super sexy
        And if that's not enough evidence to prove that I haven't been diagnosed with PANDAmonium~ There is the thing that I would never date a girl just because she's Asian because I need to feel a connection and have things in common with a girl so given the choice between a drop dead gorgeous Asian girl who I have nothing in common with and a girl who isn't Asian who is still decently attractive and I have a lot in common with her I would choose the latter
        So yeah... I don't have PANDAmonum so sorry to all of you who were betting that I did~ That's a thing people bet on right? Hmmm....
        Anyways I feel like I could've said more about my own personal preferences but it's 3 in the morning and I'm drawing a blank on other things to say :undecided:
        But I would really love to hear your thoughts on this because this this is an interesting topic to me and I'd love to get a little discussion going on this because I feel like this is a relevant topic to the community of JPA since I'm sure some people have the stigma that everyone on JPA is just a bunch of Asian fetish freaks and that kinda hurts~ Which is why I wrote that to kind of debunk that rumor if it's even a rumor :undecided:
        But yes that's all I have to say for now~ Thank you guys so much for reading this and until next time.... Bye guys! I should get some sleep now lol

          Hello guys! Yes the Jrock scenarios are back after a two year hiatus! Just a quick preface for those who are new here and haven't read any of my Jrock scenarios- These in no way are meant to defame or maliciously make fun of any Jrockers here it is purely for fun and I love the guys (and girls) featured in here as much as you my dear reader do so if you want to get mad about this please keep it to yourself because it's your choice to get offended
          Anyways on with the show!

          Ruki: Reita! Have you seen my sparkly pink pen?
          Reita: You mean the one you wrote all over Uruha's wall with?
          Ruki: Yeah that one!
          Reita: I think you left it there
          Ruki: Oh... you think he's still mad about that?
          Reita: Probably
          Ruki: Ah.... You wanna go get it for me Reita sweetheart?
          Reita: No and don't call me sweetheart!
          Ruki: Yeah, whatever cupcake... well I'm not going alone you're coming with me *grabs Reita by the arm and drags him out the door*
          *they arrive at Uruha's place*
          Ruki: *pauses before knocking on the door* Wait Reita... do you hear that sound? I think that's...
          Reita: *singing* Oh girls just wanna have fu-un!... ahem no what are you talking about?
          Ruki: I'm just going to pretend I didn't hear that... *knocks on the door*
          Uruha: *Opens the door* Hey Saki- oh it's you.... what do you want?
          Ruki: *can clearly hear Girls Just Want to Have Fun playing from Uruha's place* I don't know what to ask about first now.... What is that noise coming out of your place?
          Uruha: Oh you know I was just going to be having a party with a couple friends
          Ruki: *gasps* And you didn't invite me!?
          Uruha: Well I know how you are with your musical tastes and-
          Ruki: You listen to girly music? You're just a girl who wants to have fun?
          Reita: Hey it's a good- *Ruki glares at him* I mean a terrible terrible song
          Uruha: This is precisely why I didn't invite you *is about to close the door but Ruki stops him*
          Ruki: WAIT! The real reason I came here is to get my sparkly pink pen I want to write some songs! Can you let me in?
          Uruha: Fine as long as you don't say anything
          Ruki: My lips are sealed
          *Ruki and Reita enter there are already some guests in the room*
          Ryoga: Hey Uruha I thought you didn't invite Ruki
          Uruha: He just came for his pen and he's going to leave
          Ruki: Oh god Ryoga you're here too!? I thought you were sane!
          Ryoga: What's that supposed to mean?
          *song changes to Bootylicious*
          Yomi: *jumping up* THIS IS MY STRIPPING SONG! *Rips off clothes and starts running around*
          Ruki: Oh god what the hell!?
          Yomi: Ruki's here! Now the party can really begin! *starts twerking on Ruki*
          Ruki: No! Stop! Reita help me! This midgit is raping me!
          Reita: Calm down Ruki! Besides this is funny
          Ruki: You traitor!
          Sakito: Sorry I'm late Uruha! Hey what's happening to Ruki?
          Ruki: I feel so violated! In more way than one!
          Sakito: What do you mean?
          Ruki: I mean you all have shitty taste in music! Like what the hell is this shit!?
          Omi: Hey I happen to like this music!
          Miko: Really? That's so cute! *hugs Omi*
          Omi: Wait no! I don't like this! Uruha you didn't tell me you invited her! Dammit!
          Miko: Oh Naoto's here too! I didn't know you liked this kind of music!
          Naoto: If you tell anyone I will slowly cute you open and let your guts spill out of you and you bleed out slowly as I carve out your eyeballs
          Ruki: Huh... she says this with a completely straight face as Bootylicious is playing... kinda takes away from the threatening factor
          Naoto: Same goes for you punk!
          Ruki: HEY Do you know who I am!? I'm Ruki from the GazettE! I am your god!
          Reita: Oh no he's on another one of his rants...
          Naoto: *throws a knife that just barely misses Ruki's face*
          Ruki: Eep! *hides behind Reita* Did you see that pumpkin? She almost ruined my beautiful face!
          Uruha: I guess you could say she almost carved you like a pumpkin
          Ruki: Shut up Uruha you stupid duck! I was almost killed! Me! Your god!
          Reita: This is why you're not allowed to watch Death Note... it messes with your god complex...
          Ruki: Yeah well I'm being traumatized with near death experiences with the unholy music of demons! *Ruki's cell phone starts ringing and the song is Love Game by Lady Gaga*
          Ryoga: OH MY GOD! I LOVE LADY GAGA! SHE'S MY QUEEN! YAAAAAS BITCH!
          Uruha: *snickering* You gonna answer that?
          Ruki: Erm... I only have this because I want to ride Reita's disco stick!
          Reita: Stop lying you listen to her all the time
          Ruki: N-no I-I-I-
          Miko: Awh how cute!
          Reita: You love this trashy pop music I saw your toe tapping when you thought no one was looking
          Ruki: But-but-but
          Yomi: BUTTS! *slaps Hitsugi's butt*
          Hitsugi: Ow!
          Ruki: I'm Ruki from the GazettE! I only listen to bad ass rock music! *crosses arms and pouts* Someone hacked my phone!
          Yuuki: *walks up to Ruki and puts his arm around him* Come on Ruki embrace your inner fabulous side
          Ruki: Well I do ooze fabulousness....
          Yuuki: Come on may I have this dance? Let loose live a little
          Ruki: ...Okay... *grabs Yuuki's hand*
          Uruha: *nudging Reita* Hey I think you just got your man stolen by another gentleman caller
          Reita: No! Not at this ball!... wait what am I saying? I don't care... *grabs a beer and sits down*

          Well there you have it~ My first Jrock scenario in 2 years! I do hope you guys enjoyed it! I don't know if it's as good as my other ones~ But I'd love to hear you guys' feedback on this! Also I have no idea why I gave Ruki a god complex in this one :undecided:
          Anyways until next time... Bye guys!

            Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Is everybody having a lovey dovey ooey gooey day? No? Me neither! Yay! You know what? I am now going to reinstate this day as Night Day! And what do we do on Night Day you ask? We celebrate the day where the great Night-sama decided to grace JPA with his presence! :cool:
            But seriously guys today is the day that marks my third year on JPA! And now it's time for me to get all sentimental on y'all as per usual with these anniversary journals~ Was I sentimental last year? I don't remember actually >.<
            Anyways this site means a lot to me! I've met some of the greatest friends I could ever imagine on here! Seriously everyone here is super cool and amazing and has been so much nicer to me than I probably even deserve and for that I am truly grateful! Especially if you can put up with my weirdness and my obsession with Miko~ Seriously I don't know how you guys do it because I would probably hate me! I'd be all like "Ew that guy's so gross" *bonus points if you read that in a valley girl voice*
            Ruki: I know he's so gross right? Those pants with that top? No! Just no! And where's the glitter?
            God dammit Ruki! Who let you in here?
            Ruki: Well it's your three year anniversary and you've neglected writing about me and other Jrockers! I mean come on! You know the people want to hear about me and my adventures with the idiot over there *points to Reita*
            Reita: Yeah! Wait! Don't call me stupid midget!
            Ruki: That's offensive! We prefer little people!
            Okay guys I'm trying to write an anniversary journal here do you mind?
            Ruki: Only if you promise to write about us again!
            Sure whatever! Just get out of here! Besides, don't you have some songs to be working on!
            Ruki: I would... but I lost my pink sparkly pen and I can't write without it
            *throws pen at Ruki* Now go write something!
            Ruki: Okay bai bai! Come on Reita! I need to someone to reach the paper for me!
            Reita: Sure munchkin
            Okay now that they're gone... where was I? Oh yes~ Now honestly I don't know how to celebrate it~ My first anniversary I wrote special messages to my closest friends here, then for my second year I did a double celebration extravaganza for my 2nd anniversary/100th journal~ Hmm how about I celebrate with something that'll last a little while~ But only if a certain is met~ If I get 3 comments on this journal I will post a picture of myself as my profile pic for a week so you guys can see what Night-sama really looks like ;)
            I think that's a good way to celebrate the third year of my JPA life~ But it'll only happen if I get three comments no exceptions! If I don't get that I guess this journal will be the only way that my 3rd anniversary will be celebrated :p
            But once again I'd like to thank all of my friends on here for being amazing! Seriously without you I wouldn't enjoy this site as much as I do! I love you all <3
            But that's it for now! So until next time.... Bye guys!

              "*bleep*ing magnets, how do they work?" This is a question that has haunted me since last night when I heard Miracles by Insane Clown Posse how do they work? I don't want a scientific answer either--------- Hey everybody! It's Nightgaze here comin' at you live with the important questions in life and referencing an English song so this feels very odd to me... maybe I'm broken :undecided:

              "*bleep*ing magnets, how do they work?" This is a question that has haunted me since last night when I heard Miracles by Insane Clown Posse how do they work? I don't want a scientific answer either--------- Hey everybody! It's Nightgaze here comin' at you live with the important questions in life and referencing an English song so this feels very odd to me... maybe I'm broken :undecided:
              Anyways how are y'all doing? Seriously I don't know why I always ask this you guys this it's not like you can tell me... but I hope there's some of you out there who answer this question to your computer screen because that would highly amuse me and you would be the greatest person ever.. well second greatest person unless you're Miko ;)
              Speaking of Miko! I've been thinking about biases a lot lately and have come to terms with the fact that I am indeed a girl crazy guy person humanoid thing~ This is going to be my girlholics anonymous meeting except not really because I'm happy with who I am dammit! No the real point of this journal is that I want to see if I can rank my biases~ And I'm hoping some of you are at least interested in this or I'm just typing words that no one is going to read or care about in which case I'm just going to write about whatever~ I like cheesecake~ Actually cheesecake sounds delicious right now! I wish I had some dammit now I'm sad >.< What? You're still reading this? Well you my dedicated reader get absolutely nothing as a reward! *insert sound of children cheering* rather you get to see me elaborate on what this journal is actually about! :D
              So here is my tentative bias list~ I'm going to try my hardest to come up with a concrete order!

              1) Miko is it any surprise really? She is always my number 1! She's so beautiful and cute and talented~ She's literally my ideal woman <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
              https://40.media.tumblr.com/c7c84ab392bd51c81a8e3102677810dc/tumblr_nepj0jXBC31r2c8eco1_500.jpg

              2) Rina Yes Rina is still my number 2! I know I had a lot of ups and downs with her but after a lot of thinking the first Japanese girl I ever had a crush on is coming in at number 2
              http://nippop.com/uploads/assets/avatars/1331639351Rina-Suzuki-Kawaii-Wallpaper.jpg
              http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/drama/images/e/eb/Rina_suzuki.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120711041858&path-prefix=es

              3) Saki This is a crush that started last year for me during my Mary's Blood obsession~ She is extremely beautiful and so talented on the guitar~ Seriously her guitar skills are kind of a turn on not gonna lie :crazy:
              http://visualioner.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/mb_saki.png

              http://www.marshallblog.jp/images/2014/03/12/90v.jpg

              4) Jill This crush also started last year when I met her in person at Otafest and she was even my number two for a while~ She was so cute and seemed like a really lovable girl~ Plus Claymore is one of her favorite animes which makes me super happy :D
              http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130726021728/visualkei/es/images/1/10/Tumblr_mfroyaf5W51qzbuoho1_500.jpg

              http://rosenoire.info/images/6_b.jpg

              5) Yui Which Yui you may ask? The ex-Ganglion member? The solo artist? Nope! I'm talking about the tiny adorable guitarist from Cyntia! She's new to this list~ And yes I know most guys go for Saki so this might be a shock to some but hey more Yui for me <3 I do find Saki to be really beautiful but I feel like Yui is more my type~ Maybe because she's a beautiful guitarist and the most adorable 5-foot package ever! <3
              http://jrock247.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/JRock247-Cyntia-Lady-Made-Yui.jpg

              http://images.khinsider.com/2012%20Uploads/11/The%20Death%20March/YUI.jpg

              6) Haruna She would've been 5th place if it weren't for that meddling Yui! To think there was a time when I was having a tough time deciding if I thought Rina or Haruna prettier~ She is another beautiful short girl with one of the most beautiful singing voices in my opinion~ And Haruna definitely knows how to turn on the sexy :crazy:
              http://www.generasia.com/w/images/thumb/d/de/haruna_ono_standard.jpg/350px-haruna_ono_standard.jpg

              http://images.wikia.com/drama/es/images/2/25/Haruna_Ono.jpg

              7) Rio She was my bias in Mary's Blood before I really started to notice Saki~ But I still do find Rio to be absolutely gorgeous! She has a really pretty face and she is one of the few girls I know of that can really rock the short hair look~ And she seems so energetic and cute on twitter <3
              https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/550674555274924032/-CNINZdx_400x400.jpeg
              https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8353/8333967571_883a7dc964_n.jpg
              http://livedoor.blogimg.jp/two04711201980/imgs/e/5/e520d82f.png

              8) Eye And rounding out my list of main biases is the beautiful vocalist from Mary's Blood~ Who's voice is just as beautiful as she is~ She has a bit more of a mature look than the others on this list but I still think she is extremely beautiful~ And I don't want to be punny here~ But Eye has really pretty eyes :moved:
              http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/63197115/Marys+Blood+EYE+03.jpg
              https://visualioner.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/mb_eye.png
              http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/visualkei/images/0/03/EYE_01.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20121108114949&path-prefix=es

              So those are my 8 main biases~ They are the ones that are placed higher above the other pretty girls I see in my mind~ And the fact that I have 8 main biases makes me think I'm girl crazy~ Do you guys agree with that statement? Not that I'm gonna seek help or anything :p
              Also I don't know why I've been so list crazy lately! I need to find some more interesting things to talk about!
              But anyways that's all for now so until next time... bye guys!

                I'm doing quite potato myself
                If you can tell me what that means that would be great! I hope it doesn't mean I have some sort of disease :o

                Well I'm sure you know what this journal is about since you most likely read the title before clicking here so I'm going to keep the intro short since this might get long~ Or rather you probably want to see the list and potentially check out some songs you've never heard before! Because if I can introduce someone to a band they've never listened to before that would make all the work I put into this worth it because I put way too much work into these! Partly because I enjoy doing it but also because I hope others enjoy these types of things as well!
                I'd like to preface this quickly by saying usually in June I make a top 50 bands list but last year I surpassed the 300 band mark so I figure I could make it a top 100 list~ So yeah~ Let me know if you like any of these artists as well or if you find a new band that you like here!
                Without further adieu enjoy!

                  So I was on YouTube the other day watching some Visual Kei PVs when this video showed up on the side:

                  How this showed up on the side of a G ∀LMET PV I will never know but YouTube works in mysterious ways :o
                  Anyways~ Being a guy who is into Japanese girls curiosity got the better of me and I clicked on it!
                  So if you watch this video or if you've seen it before you'll notice that as far as personality traits these girls like guys to have doesn't seem any different to western women~ They want a guy who's smart, funny, well dressed, and such and they said some other things that seem like things any girl would like in a boyfriend you know? Maybe it's just me but it makes me wonder how different it would be to date someone from Japan~ I should also say I didn't watch the one where they interviewed guys so I don't know how different they are
                  I've also never dated someone from Japan before but based on this and other videos I saw Japanese girls don't seem too different from western when it comes to basic things they're looking for~ This assumption is ignoring cultural differences
                  Honestly I thought I had more of a point when I started writing this but now I'm starting to realize that whatever point I had isn't as strong as I thought it was...
                  Maybe the real reason I wanted to write this was because I found this video fascinating~ I mean the adorable girls aside it's interesting to see how another culture views things like dating because for core personality and some physical trait preferences were the same there were also quite a few differences so I would really love it if you guys would watch this video and watch the one where they interviewed the guys as well it should be on the side somewhere~ And let me know your thoughts on this! Do you guys find this sort of thing interesting or am I just weird and the only person who's interested in this?
                  Also I want to say that I was very happy when basically all of them said that they would date a foreign guy~ Especially since some of them were really quick to say yes~ It gives me hope that I won't be alone forever lol :p And some of them would get a quick yes from me as well ;)
                  Anyways I'm rambling at this point~ I guess my question this time is what are your thoughts and do you find this sort of thing interesting? I hope this journal wasn't a complete rambling that had no point >.< But if it is I guess I have to make more sense next time!
                  But until next time... bye guys!

                    Now for reals everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Even though it's 8 days into 2015! One of these days I'll get it right :undecided:
                    But this is my first journal of 2015! Isn't that exciting? No? I'm the only one who's excited? That's cool too~
                    Anyways how are y'all doing? Did you have a great New Year's eve party? How many of you were hungover?

                    Now for reals everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Even though it's 8 days into 2015! One of these days I'll get it right :undecided:
                    But this is my first journal of 2015! Isn't that exciting? No? I'm the only one who's excited? That's cool too~
                    Anyways how are y'all doing? Did you have a great New Year's eve party? How many of you were hungover?
                    So people always talk about having a New Year's resolution and plan to keep it for the whole year but that never really happens so that's why I never make them! Until now~ Yes this year I'm actually going to try to make some resolutions and see if any of them actually happens! And hopefully at the end of the year I'll remember to post a journal saying if I actually succeeded at any of them! :D
                    So my first resolution is one I actually think will be the one that I stick to! And that is to listen to updates from as many active bands that I listen to~ I find that there's a lot of bands that I listen to up to a certain point but never keep up with them again~ For example let's say I listen to a band in 2013 and I listen to everything they've released up until that point and never listen to them again~ And I don't want to miss out on some great music again this year! So I've made a really long list of bands that I like that are still active and I'm going to keep up with their releases and try to listen to as much new music as I can! So if any of you want to help me with that it would be greatly appreciated! I'll post the list of bands I am going to be following in addition to my main bands~ So if you are a big fan of any of these bands I'd really appreciate it if you would help me keep up with their releases~ (I'm only posting bands that I think I'll need the most help following)
                    MEJIBRAY
                    Lycaon

                    Yousei Teikoku
                    BLACK SWAN

                    My iTunes is going to explode by the end of the year :p
                    And my second New Year's resolution is to meet a girl~ Yes this is something I talk about in my journals a lot so I'm going to put myself and you guys out of our misery by getting a girlfriend so I don't have to talk about it anymore! But I'm not going to force anything~ If something happens great! If not I have a resolution for next year
                    And my third and final New Year's resolution is to have the means to go on a trip to Japan in 2016~ That improves greatly improving my Japanese language skills so once I start school I'm going to be really busy trying to do well in school and working and trying to become as fluent as I can in Japanese~
                    So those are my New Year's resolutions in a nutshell~ My last couple journals were pretty long so I'll leave things at that for now~ Also did you guys make resolutions this year? If so let me know in the comments! Let's work towards them together! :D
                    But until next time.... Bye guys!

                    • Top 15 Songs of 2014

                      Posted on 31 December, 2014 (3 months ago) by Nightgaze · 134 views · 4 comments · 4 likes

                      HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! :D :D :D Yes I know it's still the 31st for most of the world still (Or at least it is at the time I'm writing this) But I have relatives coming in later today (it's currently 2 am here) So I'm writing part 3 of my 3 part year of end series that I hope y'all are enjoying because *sob* I don't know what I'd do if you didn't!
                      Anyways this is my third annual "top songs of the year" list that I just enjoy doing because I like discussing what songs I enjoyed in the year and hopefully some of you will tell me your favorites of the year as well~
                      But I usually like to preface these with how the year went for me~ So 2014 had a lot of hard times for me featuring fantastic things like heartbreak, moving and having to say goodbye to my lifelong friends and losing my grandpa and boy I must say I don't know where I'd be if I didn't have music as my major support system because other than talking to friends music is something that always cheers me up~ But this year also had it's high points the highest being when I went to Otafest to meet an awesome friend and see Rose Noire live! :D And since music impacted me in that way this year some of the criteria for this list is how much the song helped me get through these hard times as well as how much I love the song~
                      But without further adieu here is my top 15 songs of 2014! Something I've been working on since November so I put a lot of thought into this!

                      15 Purple Stone-amazuppai mango

                      Starting off our list at number 15 we have Amazuppai Mango by Purple Stone~ This kind of just made the list because it came out in November but this band is too amazing to not get a mention here! Everything they release just sounds so epic! I mean Keiya's voice has a certain power to it that makes me come back for more! And this song is a very catchy track that manages to have a very heavy beat that I just love!

                      14 SCANDAL-Departure

                      Next we have Departure by SCANDAL! This is by far my favorite song that SCANDAL released this year I just love the beat of this song especially when it hits the chorus~ The best way I can describe it is that it has a "walking pace" and I actually quite enjoy songs with this pace it makes it that much more catchy in my opinion~ And I especially love Haruna's vocals in this song :moved: This song first stuck out to me back in August when I was celebrating "second bias month" by watching their PVs~ I guess I should also mention I developed quite the obsession for the "SCANDAL IN THE HOUSE" PV but that's a story for another day~ For now I'll just leave you with "Departure is amazing" seriously even if you aren't a big fan of SCANDAL give this song a listen I'm sure you can appreciate it

                      13 Nightmare-rewrite
                      link to the PV
                      Surprised to see Nightmare this low on the countdown? Or I guess high? I don't know how countdowns work... Yes I do love Nightmare and they are tied for my favorite band but I'm not being biased this year~ Now to talk about the song! I don't know what it is about this song that makes me love it so much! I think it just has that magical special sound that only Nightmare can do it's kind of like a slow song but it's faster at the same time and I think that might be the biggest reason I like it~ And it seems to possess this power to get into my head randomly and make me want to listen to it over and over! And I feel triumphant whenever I listen to it as well so that's a thing to~ Another fantastic single by Nightmare!

                      12 MEJIBRAY-Theatrical Blue Black

                      So I bet no one expected to see MEJIBRAY on this list ne? Seeing as how I almost never mention them~ But to be perfectly honest MEJIBRAY is a band that has always really fascinated me but I guess their music didn't have the same quality on me for a while that is until earlier this year when I became obsessed with their song Sabato~ And then I listened to this song... and WOW! Have you ever had a song that single handedly convinced you that you were going to follow a band from then on? Well that's what this song is! It's such an epic song! So hardcore! And Tsuzuku's screaming... damn I am a fan! My inner girl was quite pleased with this~ Dammit Nightette! I didn't invite you to this! Ignoring her... This song is so intense how can you not rock out to it and fail at attempting to scream like Tsuzuku and killing your throat in the process? Also I love love LOVE Meto's drumming in this song~

                      11 exist†trace-RAZE

                      So as you all know I am in love with WORLD MAKER! Honestly every track from this album could've been on this list but I think that would be boring for you guys to read and I've gushed enough about this album but I think I should come out and say that RAZE is my favorite song on the album! Simply put I love the way they combine the new and old sounds of exist†trace in this song perfectly combining Jyou's growling with Miko's vocals! I just wish it was longer because I can't get enough of this track! I knew when I heard this song on exist†trace's livestream that it was something special~

                      10 lynch.-DEVIL

                      Now we've hit my top 10 songs of the year with lynch.'s DEVIL~ Now the place that this song initially stood out to me is kind of weird~ So I was plant shopping with my mom listening to my lynch. playlist because that's totally appropriate for the occasion and this song came on and it just hit me like an epic tidal wave of amazingness! It's such an amazing song and my new favorite lynch. song it really features everything that makes this band amazing! This was the soundtrack of my life from like late February till April and it's huge impact on that part of the year for me lands this song in number 10~

                      9 vistlip-Period

                      So now we have the song that I mentioned in part 1 as having the best PV of the year~ The big shocker here is that I freaking love the song too! I'll be honest after my first listen I was a little bit disappointed because I was still on my Prey Shadow obsession but I had faith in vistlip so I listened to the song a few more times and developed an addiction to it! I also fell in love with the PV I especially love the part where the counting down numbers come in just the way they timed that feels so epic to me~ And as for the song's sound it's what you'd expect from vistlip something really catchy and infectious where Tomo shows off his amazing vocals! I think the only reason this beat out JACK for me was because it was released first so I had more time to listen to it and it stayed in my head more~

                      8 Royz-Sasayaki Yuujo

                      With CORE ranking really high on my Top albums of the year list it was expected that a Royz song would be on here ne? So what do I choose? Revelation? Lilia? Maybe I'll throw you off and pick Supernova~ Nope my favorite song on the album is Sasayki Yuujo~ It's a really fun fast paced song and it's pretty much at the center of my Royz obsession this year~ And it was a very Royz filled summer for me and lord knows I've been headbanging to this song! I also want to mention that I call this song "The Prostitute song" because one of the words- I believe it's Yuujo- translates to "prostitute" and that amuses me~ It was really hard to write about this song while listening to it because I had to resist the urge to head bang to it

                      7 Lycaon-Shadow

                      So how 'bout that Lycaon band this year huh guys? As I've said all three of their singles this year have been freaking mind blowing! I don't know how they haven't gotten more in the spotlight because of these songs! I'm gonna be honest hear the intro to this song is my ringtone because I find it that catchy! I love the mix of violins with that guitar riff it's just pure eargasm! Speaking of eargasms Yuuki's voice is pure sex it can even turn on a straight Miko obsessed male such as myself and I must say that it rather impressive I am so hyped for their new album coming out next year! :D

                      6 SID-Enamel

                      I'm gonna just come out and say it- I was very disappointed by OUTSIDER for me it was a weak album made by a band I know can do much better and they redeemed themselves for me when they released this song! This is the type of song that made me fall in love with SID it's rocking and upbeat and this is the sound I think SID does the best~ Or at least it's the one I like the best :p Also it's funny that this is a Kuroshitsuji opening because Monochrome no Kiss was the song that convinced me to listen to this band more :p And I love the guitar solo in this song! It's so fast paced and I love the little tone switch in it~ (is that the right word for it?) And I love how Mao says "Yes my lord" in it... Nice touch

                      5 Alice Nine-Seven

                      Now we've hit the top 5! Yay! And at this point I'm starting to get a little tired so if I start to stray off topic randomly that's why~ Anyways Alice Nine-Seven instrumentally it isn't anything special especially for Visual Kei it's your run of the mill Jrock song~ That is until you hear Shou's vocals it brings the song together and just gives it a really epic rocking feel! And the reason it is in the top 5 songs of the year for me is because it is the only song that I've been consistently obsessed with for the whole year~ So even if you don't like the direction Alice Nine has gone in you can't really argue with that ne?

                      4 ScReW-FUGLY

                      I'll start this off by saying I had a pretty good laugh when this single was announced because me and my friends use the word "Fugly" all the time (usually to refer to something as being stupid rather than using it's actual meaning) But with this song ScReW takes the electronic sound that a lot of Visual Kei bands have been using lately and they made it their own! Honestly this is probably the best use of the electronic sound in my opinion~ And holy mother of Jesus grandma Kazuki's guitar solo in this song! Tied for my favorite guitar solo of the year! What's the other one? I guess you'll have to find out muahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

                      3 BORN-THE STALIN

                      BORN IS FREAKING BACK BABY! I know they didn't go anywhere but let's be honest they were not having a good run with their past couple singles which made me sad because I love me some BORN but they have redeemed themselves and restored my faith in them! This is the kind of material I expect from them! Something that's heavy and catchy has really amazing screaming and most of all makes me feel like a complete badass when I listen to it! And how can I have BORN on this list without mentioning Ryoga's outfits? He looks like Hitler at some points in this video and it kinda fits the theme of "evil dictators" but it's kind of the wrong one bro~ I wonder if anyone got outraged about that :undecided: Anyways this a freaking mind-blowing song

                      2 xTRiPx-10+1

                      Funny how xTRiPx makes number 2 on my list 2 times in a row~ They are just destined for second ne? I love this song! And it was actually really close to being number 1 but my heart told me to choose the other song~ But aside from this song being freaking amazing it was there for me during my lowest point of the year which was when I had my heartbroken when me and my girlfriend broke up I literally had this song on repeat while I was crying but this song really did help and encourage me to not give up because I felt really hopeless and that I would be alone forever~ xTRiPx told me to never give up! So this song has a really special place in my heart! I am really sad about xTRiPx disbanding though but I wish the members the best in the future and hope they never give up on their dreams either!

                      Now before I get to my number 1 song of the year here are some Honorable Mentions because there were just too many amazing songs released this year that I wanted to put on the list but couldn't

                      HONORABLE MENTIONS
                      SuG-MISSING

                      Nightmare-Drastica

                      Link to the PV

                      exist†trace-SHOOTING STAR

                      ViViD-Hikari

                      Codomo Dragon-Viper

                      LM.C-MOGURA
                      Link to PV

                      1 Mary's Blood-Marionette

                      So here you have it! My top song of 2014 is Marionette by Mary's Blood! This is the song my heart was telling me to make number 1 so here it is! And I must say I love this PV because LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEGS LEEEEEEEEEEEEEGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! *passes out from a nosebleed* I'm sorry but those girls have fantastic legs! And I swear putting girls with sexy legs in a PV is not how you get to be my number 1 song of the year! Though it helps apparently >.< But on a serious note holy freaking mother of the sandwich I left in the fridge for lunch tomorrow! Whoever said girls can't do metal clearly has never listened to Mary's Blood before! I mean Eye's amazing melodic vocals, Saki's goddess like guitar skills, Rio's bass, and Mari's extremely powerful drumming make for an amazing combo! And to give you an idea of how much I love this song it single handedly convinced me to buy their album and not only that it sparked my obsession with Mary's Blood~ I mean if there's an award for most underrated band of the year these girls deserve it! They're so talented and I can't wait to hear what they have in store for the future!

                      So those are my top 15 songs of 2014! Man that took me a long time to write so I hope you enjoyed it! And if you actually read everything I wrote you are amazing! Seriously everyone on here new friends and old even those who I've lost contact with- thank you for being my friend this year and in years past! I seriously don't know what I would do without you and I wish you all the best in 2015!
                      And as always let me know what you think and let me know what your favorite songs of the year were because it was truly a fantastic year for music!
                      But until next time... Bye guys!
