Talking about Music. (I will try to make that short, because I actually could write whole novels about it)
I got interested in Japan in early 2008. If you get interested into Japan here in Germany you...automatically get in touch with Visual kei.
Because Johnny doesn't care enough to let the rest of the world know about the boys. So J-Rock and Visual kei is basically more or less the only music genre which is really famous and popular here. It has a really big fandom here, what is really understandable because *lots* of VK and JR artists come to Germany to give concerts. (and I mean really *a lot*. I think simply everyone was here already.)
And I was a fan of it for about 3 years? Something around it. The bands I loved the most during this time were Gazette, Versailles, Alice Nine, Mucc, Vivid lots of others and... Miyavi.
And I actually don't even know what kind of music this dude makes, because while he obviously belonged to vk during his earlier years, he started to make different music. Especially after he launched his own company I would say. And I *really* loved him. ( I even had the chance to see him live in 2011 what was really amazing)
But after...ummm getting sucked in this wondefful glittering gay world full of pretty boys
with omfg armpit hair, I really stopped caring about everything which wasn't connected to Johnny's. And I simply couldn't stand VK anymore, because my ears literally hurt...It was just so dark. You really can't listen to all this happy music and then go back to the texts which often deal with self destruction and death. The only bands which were still more on the rock side and which I really loved/love are One Ok Rock, Mr.Children, SID...
About one or two months ago however I stumbled upon Miyavi's 'secret' pv which was just leaked. And I really liked it. Not the pv itself because it's really slutty and I don't find some av actress spreading her legs that entertaining.
(this was really yummy tho...)
I have a thing for Japanese men who smoke *sighs*
Umm okay...this one too...maybe.
But the song. It was catchy. Really nice. After it I downloaded his new album and...forgot about it. (Which is perfectly normal for me, because I always need ages before I listen to something new. I'm a fail when it comes to everything non KT related)
When I was transferring music to my phone for the Turkey trip I found it again. And holy shit. I love it. It's perfect. Every single track on this album is perfect. PERFECT.
It's a wonderful feeling to come back to something old you used to like. He is such an amazing and talented man...I really don't have any words for it. Just...wow.
After that I've spent an entire evening with watching all the clips which I've missed.
And then don't even asked my why, but I checked his album on CdJapan. And of course!! there was just one copy left of the LE, so now I'm terribly broken (why do albums have to cost that much) and bought something fandom unrelated for the first time in my whole life. Uiiiiii.
And I don't regret it all. *squeals*
Whoaaa. This is a long post O___o
