MTV is doing interviews with Dir en grey.

We finally have a 100% definite answer regarding the meaning of their band name, it seems. Before now I'd only heard rumors, like that it was actually a reference to Dorian Gray.

Now if only they'd get their butts back to the Americas...


Jesus ******** that was amazing....

I always knew the name was the 3 languages and thought from the start it was meant to mean nothing... do I get points?

I've actually been listening listening to Arche (I know, I'm late) and I'm dangerously in love with it. If only I was still in Ohio and listening to it in real Winter with grey skies and snow and whatnot.


Yeah, listening to it when it's in the 80's and there are still mosquitoes buzzing around just takes some of the edge off it lol.


I was going to tip this because it made me chuckle but then I remembered tips are now 10k so I was like ******** that.

The weather doesn't affect my listening experience when it comes to dir en grey lol


It doesn't really affect my 'experience', Diru is always good any time of the year in any weather, but I always listen most heavily in the Winter because it goes smoothly with the weather, Idk. It enhances the imagery the music projects but the music itself and how I feel about it goes unaffected.

I got Gauze, Macabre, & Kisou in the mail yesterday and I was so excited. Until I looked at them and had never heard of the label and knew that Dir en grey & the Gazette hadn't been with the same label at any point in time. The SOB sold me bootleg copies and I am so p!$$ed off. 1st I can't stand being lied to and selling me fakes is a lie. 2nd The damned shipping was over $40 and for me to return and get a refund will cost me about the same as if I had just bought two albums new and had them shipped from Japan. I contacted the seller to let them know I am not satisfied and I reported them to ebay since selling bootleg is against policy.

If you are looking to buy any music from somewhere like ebay or even used from an unknown company ask for the item number and name of the label before buying. From what I was reading it seems that Hong Kong doesn't really have copyright laws or they are very lax. Miya Records is a huge money maker there and they are strictly bootleg.

Gah, is it any wonder I don't like people?


Ah man, that's bullshit. Sorry.


Completely bs. I never heard back from the seller and they are still there so I think I'll be calling tomorrow to b***h to a person. That needs to be fixed or I won't buy anything off ebay ever again.


Did you fix it?

Didn't get through so I checked around the site and the best advice of others is to give a negative rating since that's all that ebay cares about.

Jesus, how do they look though? Are they obvious?


Not obvious from the pictures but when you get them there's this little fold thing saying it's from Miya and it's all over the back and the inside stuff. They do pretty good copies but they are still bootleg copies and it irks the hell out of me

I still haven't listened to it. I downloaded it but haven't even opened it into my iTunes library.
idk but recently listening to Diru puts me into a weird funk.
