Apparently Kaoru has a monthly column in Ongaku to Hito. I wonder how they managed to pull that off. Mag doesn't really seem their style. (In which I mean five staff writers of eight reviewed the new Kazuya Yoshii album, but zero reviewed deg's new one despite the fact that they ran a new release feature on it...)

Is that a pop magazine? He did do Jessica?

I am really not feeling Kyo's hat in this pic.

Does anyone still read/write fic? I just went through and read some old fic I had saved for the nostalgia of it. because i still have all of chantrea_johari's fic saved

Weird hat is weird...

I still do.
Not really long stories, just drabbles.
I have a fic I found on my cloud that I wrote that I've picked up.

I still haven't listened to Arche, anyone know where I can?

hmmmmmmmmmm.....

omg, That hat... I can't... *dead* rofl
Exactly what kinds of fics? I've written one but it's been forever since I've done anything like that


The hat is rather marvelous/horrifying. it kinda looks like Pharrell's. It also makes Kyo look like a grumpy old man XD

I used to write incredibly bad slash (way... way back in the day, god I must have been seventeen O_o) and now I've found that vaguely slashy implications or just character exploration fics are more my thing (side affect of studying English lit for six years without a breath).


I guess it could have been worse. I saw Uruha and Hyde wearing these big, floppy, black hats that I swear I've seen in the ladies hat section and thought they should be granny's funeral hat or something.

The one Dir en Grey fic I wrote was more of a crack but I've done other stuff that's slash. Haven't had time to write anything for ages though. Too busy with crochet stuff atm

No, it's a pretty indie rock mag. Usually in Japan, when it comes to rock music, magazines are split between visual and not. Generally the two don't mix. So I would expect Kaoru to have a column in something like Fool's Mate or Shoxx rather than magazines like Ongaku to Hito or Rockin'on Japan.

(Though it seems like deg are trying to spread themselves everywhere. They used to be a FM mainstay, now they actually are in Rockin'on. This truly is a strange new world.)

Jessica the song? I...don't really get why one song made years ago would make much of a difference...

But whatever. It's a pretty neat article talking about the surprising amount of time it actually takes to record an album...and damn does that boy have an accent.

LOL YES. I hadn't seen it that way, but you're totally right. Or it looks like it could be in response to that Pregnancy Announcement meme that was floating around. "No Kyo, you are not the father" XD


HA! That's even more fitting than my suggestion before.

These gifs also are pretty hilarious, if only because Kyo obviously looks so frustrated trying not to laugh / wanting to laugh. ((The eighth one even looks like he's biting his lip to keep from smiling rofl ))


Nice~ It warms my heart to see Kyo smile so openly.

I was wondering, have you (or anyone else) read the joint interview with Kyo & his favorite director,Alejandro Jodorowsky? It was a pretty interesting read from both sides. Kyo + Jodorowsky interview (tumblr link)

Accent?


Jessica is very heavily pop influenced IMO

Don't feel like Dir has been "Visual" for quite some time honestly.

Yeah, I don't have it with me right now (at work, lol), but he definitely writes with a regional dialect. Back when I was all degsuperfan, my Japanese was pretty weak, so I never caught it before, but it's pretty clear in the writing. I'll pull out an example later on, if you want. It just makes reading the article a bit...amusing, linguistically.

Maybe that's why Jessica was so bad...

Anyway, in comparison to bands that never hit the visual cash cow, they are still pretty visual. I'll admit, though, they're quite a bit toned down from where they were.
