You’d say “‘Miserable’ has a deeply sad, negative meaning, right?” but I’d answer that “That’s spelled ‘Mis~’, isn’t it? Mine is ‘Miz~’. I think by nature ‘Mizerable’ has a different meaning, however I usually say if I can get you to listen to the song and feel it, I think you’d understand the positive meaning this song holds. - SHOXX June 1999


Pretending not to notice

I gazed far away out the small window
An angel’s voice spreads across the sky
embraced by the wind 

Nothing could be heard of the commotion visible in my eyes
now, as I just whispered “it’s a trick of sweet time”
into the sky 

Round and round… in that forsaken time, I am now
les miserables
You who I loved too much are on the other side of the wall
smiling softly 

Only these feelings that won’t reach you…carried in a sigh 

While basking in the cold wind
I was imagining in the repeating night
The melody I softly hum to myself
vanishes as time ticks away
I can’t forget the sorrow I can never return to
My body cannot take the feelings that are still wavering even now
and feels like it will break… 

Where can I go to kill the sadness of being alone?
"I h-a-v-e t-o-m-o-r-r-o-w…" 

Round and round… in that forsaken time, I am now
les miserables
You who I loved too much are on the other side of the wall
smiling softly
les miserables
Deeper, deeper falling inside a dream I had begun to forget, I am now
les miserables
You who I loved too much are on the other side of the wall
smiling softly… 

Only these feelings that won’t reach you…carried in a sigh

MOON SAGA II rambling (spoilers)

(I’m tired and kinda drunk and any attempt I make at an actual plot summary is going to come out worse than this so just read that one)

Well, I believe I warned people I went into this expecting to be frustrated with the writing. Even more ominously, the people who went to see the show before me were being rather cagey about what they thought. So how did it turn out?

For anyone in Japan for the early MOON SAGA shows

Restaurant Feel, run by GACKT’s former private chef, Izumi, is holding Tamaly Bar themed events from Aug 16-18 (though it seems every day except the 16th is now booked out).

Tamaly Bar was Chef Izumi’s previous restaurant, located in an apartment owned by GACKT and only open to people who were both Dears members and had a separate membership for the restaurant itself. It closed down many years ago, so this is a rare opportunity.

Unfortunately I believe bookings have to be made by phone and in Japanese. Details are on the website http://kan-feel.com/

EDIT: I have heard that at least one person managed to make a booking in English via the contact form on the website.

Why Gackt doesn’t have his own talk show or watch Gackt be super awkard and shy

This we learned. Gackt is into MILFs

long pause

long pause with Gackt blushing and acting bashful

Even more long pause

more long pause

Did he just seduce her with bumbling awkwardness?

image

More long pause

Whenever I watch this it always baffles me. Did Gackt really attempt a talk show while being way to socially awkward to hold an entire conversation? Was this just a really convincing prank? Or did Gackt contrive an incredibly elaborate plan just just to get into Seiko Matsuda pants ? I guess we will never know.

I couldn’t even watch the whole thing from second hand embarrassment squick

gacktfan:

"I think that men and women should be granted equal rights, but I don’t think they can be equal. "

Huuuhh? Someone help me out, what does he mean by this?

The word he’s using in the first case is 公平 (impartial, fair, “to treat the same”) and the word he’s using in the second case is 平等 (impartial, even, equal, “with no bias or discrimination”).

It’s not 100% clear even in Japanese, but my interpretation is that he thinks men and women should have equal legal rights (be allowed to work, own property, etc etc) but because of (what he believes) are different physical and psychological natures, there will naturally always be a difference in the roles they take, and that is both right and desirable.

It’s hard to give examples because he didn’t and I don’t want to put words in his mouth. But it’s possible he could believe things like “If there are currently more men than women in leadership roles, then this reflects the nature of men and women and it is both unnecessary and potentially damaging to try and change that.”

(As a cultural note he is Okinawan, and in traditional Okinawan culture political authority is held by men and religious authority is held by women, with both influencing village decisions in a different way[/gross oversimplification of Okinawan culture]. So there’s that background of a sort of “separate but equal” attitude to gender.)
