    SHOXX vol. 5 + vol. 8 full scans

    Here I go logging in for the first time in (like...) six months. I've made it a (painful, admittedly) project to scan in all of my magazines in full and have them available for download. The reason being, a) it's cool to have images and know where/when they're from and b) I think it'll be good for newer fans especially to see where bands they know came from/the culture at the time. I tend to get slightly frustrated when people seem to completely rip bands apart from their context or not really be aware of the wider culture at the time. I'm putting this up on a blogspot (please enjoy my very marketable skill in web design) and here's the links. I'll add some previews to this post (they'll be quite small, apologies). The next one I'm scanning is volume 29. I need to put up volume 15 too; the scans are each about 2GB (zipped) so it's for the very dedicated. Enjoy ! from vol. 5: from vol. 8: page links: volume 5 : https://biological-slicer.blogspot.com/2020/09/shoxx-vol-5-september-1991-full-scans.html volume 8 : https://biological-slicer.blogspot.com/2020/09/shoxx-vol-8-1992-full-scans.html

    Man, the world is just so fucking weird. About 6-7 years ago I used to take the night bus home drunk and kept meeting the same guy, a "thrasher" who had similar taste to me, and we always talked about music, girls and whatever. And we usually joked about starting a thrash metal band together, inspired by Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust etc. But just as a joke of course. Over the past 3 months or, me and a very good friend, have had some of my good friend's friends play stuff for us as neither of us play any instruments (I've written the songs, but I can't play any instruments so we need session musicians). I know the drummer and bassist from before, but the guitarist, who is a friend of my friend, is someone I did not know who was. I do know his band and all, but not who he was. I did however meet the guitarist for the first time yesterday as we were filming some promo stuff and god damn it, it was the guy from 6+ years ago. And now he's playing with my band, playing thrash metal inspired by Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust etc. It's so fucking random and weird. How the hell? Hahaha! But fun of course. Always seemed like a really nice and cool guy, so that's a huge plus.

    Wtf is with bandmen going ghost instead of letting them know they quit, I didn't really care before but it's just so... embarrassing and honestly kind of depressing to see the other members having to post this shit when they clearly want to continue making music

    The guy got married and disappeared. A typical case of a disappeared married/with a bangya knocked up bandmen. Exactly the same thing happened with the second vocalist of Deathgaze - he didn't come to their gig and next thing you know - there are pictures of his wedding

    This was an incredibly difficult exercise. Tough to define your music tastes with just 5 artists. I tried selecting artists that cross a lot of genres or have a fairly diverse discography. But I think it can be summed up as: Within just Japanese artists: Dir en grey Joe Hisaishi Kumisolo Nujabes Rina Sawayama All music (thought it was fair to bump it up to 10 artists here): Alcest Charli XCX Dir en grey GosT Igorrr Kevin Penkin Macross82-99 The Midnight Sewerslvt Tyler the Creator

    Dreams about your favourite bands are pretty cool! And I just happened to have had a dream that I saw Plastic Tree hold the worst ever concert. would I still stan? the answer is yes One of Kenken's drum sticks went flying and some gya screamed in joy or pain when she realized that it hit her/she got to keep it forever. Akira held a note too long but he played it cool, though Tadashi stopped playing altogether and looked really confused before he kept playing on. Ryutaro tried to keep carrying the song but he looked mildly panicked lmao. The biggest offender was Ryutaro though. Ryutaro kept forgetting the lyrics, mumbling his way through them hoping that his usual speech tic of talking like he's gotta bunch of marbles in his mouth would cover him. When they hit the English part of Gentle.Light.And.Soul he sounded like he was speaking some sorta fucked up dialect of Southern-American spoken through a Chinese accent. He also kept tripping over himself. At one point he just fell down face-up and one of the audience members gave him a head pat while he stared upwards, dead inside. And then he ate a bad parfait with the rest of the gang and couldn't go to the back stage VIP meetings because he was holed up in the bathroom. My dream ended there. God, I wish I could've recorded this dream and shown it here because it was the funniest shit ever.

    My pfp is a picture of Ryutaro Arimura of Plastic Tree, specifically his look for the マイム PV. And yes, it was poorly edited by me and I didn't grab this joke pic off of Twitter or something. I've been thinking of changing it recently because I love changing pfps but I just made my cover image a lovely companion to this joke edit so I don't think I can do it anymore. I would've just changed it to another picture of him though lol

    I do check out previous bands, current ones etc. Usually i do it more for the band members i took a liking too. Should i give an example, like most who wrote here did? For example i follow up Ryo (joppin:cal, m:a.ture) i ended up listening to sound of drug/ esolla because of him (there is not a lot of stuff from them eitherway), i listened to the stuff from serial number that got puplished during the time he was a member of them and i ended up listening to some of the stuff he played support-bass for. Thankfully i liked most of the stuff he participated. Of course there are other Bandmembers i ended up following too. Also i don't always end up liking the new stuff they do. (Those two from Despa that ended up in The micro whatever for example.) A stupid question, but does it sometimes make you feel like, following up an old friend? because thats what i noticed how it sometimes feels for me, of course i don't know them personally, but checking on them, seeing they are doing fine, even if i might not follow his current project, makes me often happy. I know it sounds stupid, but there are bandmember i somehow followed up since 12/13 years or some where i lost track of them (because of my cursed break from vk) and suddenly i remember them and check over social media what they are doing. sorry, its a bit off topic

    📲 How do you browse? 💻

    i put google auto-translate on so the whole board shows in japanese, and then i have one of my many japanese twink harem slaves read the posts aloud to me while i sit in my throne and decide which beloved band will be disbanding today (i have a desktop with some mid-tier pc speakers but i mostly use my headphones, ATH-M50s, so as not to annoy my roommates. when i'm out on walks i just use generic earbuds and my phone)

    I always check on MH from my computer, I've actually never used anything else to browse MH. Mostly because my phone is a dinosaur that can't even load YouTube without crashing but I also never use my tablet merely on the basis that when I'm away from my computer, I'm usually trying to stay off my devices and (as the boomers would praise me for) "live in the moment"

    listening to doginthePWO and having a weirdly specific nostalgic flashback to a time i was sitting in the park in the city centre in the August sun with my weeb friends, we were all arguing about death note ships. we had my oshare folder playing on shuffle on a portable speaker. we're all wearing studded rainbow belts and have awkwardly gelled spiked hair in some kind of budget-vk/scene kid combo. one kid literally just wore his L cosplay and took his fucking shoes off outdoors in a public park to complete the look. the same kid brought his copy of the first volume of black butler (which had JUST come out in english) and we all huddled round and read it over his shoulder lmao, with A9 and paradeis playing in the background like it was the most normal shit ever. i really miss those times ;-;

    I just assume you can't take pictures at lives every time. That was you don't get in trouble, unless you're explicitly told photos are okay. Sounds like a real petty reason to dislike a band.

    This is sooo ~randum~, but hey. I really wanna see people's replies to this If you had to describe one (or more) of your favorite vk band(s) with one piece of media, be it a paragraph, a lyric, a picture, a song, an mv, an interview, whatever - how would you describe it? That one thing you saw and went "oh, ok, this is quintessentially ___". This idea actually crossed my mind when I felt this watching Nazuki by Nightmare - a PV not many would consider their favorite but I really liked back then and completely forgot why, until I went back to it years later and realized the mess it is lol. From there I realized that I only like messy bands most bands would have something like that you consider to be a "classical (this band)" thing, so... please introduce me to your favorite band(s) with one piece of media alone! No need to explain it, just go! (The weirder, the better.)

    I always thought this Vivid was a Mandela Effect/Hallucination where I thought I misremembered some old school band as having the same name as ViViD but nah, they are real. I think I just witnessed one of the cheesiest PVs in Visual Kei history but the song's kinda a banger tho 😳
