  1. At least it's not trash-tier club music? Maybe if the lockdown goes on for long enough, we'll get other acoustic (or ideally less over-produced) work. Would probably be one of the only silver linings to it, really.

    Anyone planning on buying and saving that livestream with something like Internet Download Manager/Video Download Helper/ffmpeg/whatever program or trick of choice? I'd get it, but I'm stuck having to eat exorbitant shipping costs on something this month, so I'm unlikely to be able to work this into my monthly budget when all's said and done.
  3. Can anyone help me get the colors in a scan I did to more closely resemble the colors of the official image?

      @colorful人生All right, so this is the scan I did: (https://i.imgur.com/fiREB39.jpg).

      And this is the official image I'm trying to better match: (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ERZn7GFVAAAPvZ-.jpg)

      This is what I ended up with:




      Flesh tone is still nagging at me, and there's some detail I couldn't get back in the hair from the scan. That's probably as close as I can get for now. Hope you don't mind that I took some liberties clearing up some dust + stains.

      @colorful人生The scan looks much better than it started out; thank you. ^_^

      (And not a problem -- I actually appreciate you taking the time to clean up some of the dust and whatnot as well. It was more than I expected, and it's the type of thing that often gives me grief.)

    Yeah, I'm listed as an editor.

    I'm trying to edit some releases to add/correct some incorrect album covers, but the images won't change or get added. Do I need special permissions or some such?

    Some tool decided to go into work at the mill where my brother works and brag about how he was hanging out with his brother, who has a confirmed case of the Coronavirus(?!!)...from there, someone told on him to some higher-ups and he got told to go tf back home and they've tried to disinfect as well as they could. My Dad has COPD and asthma and he lives with my brother. Plus, my Dad's been over to my sister/her boyfriend's house recently and visits there periodically...and said boyfriend also works at the same mill. So now we have to worry about his wellness since the virus would probably hit him particularly well. We may also have to worry a bit for ourselves, too, since Dad is over here often.

    The album's release date has been postponed one week. Instead of March 18, it will now be coming out on March 25. However, three of the songs on the album will receive an early release on March 18 -- "survive of vision", "Outsider", and "Greige".

    Just learned I'll be getting the Ltd as a gift, so no worries on that front, I reckon. Honestly though, I worry that VIctor Entertainment will do like they did with Ink's special ltd. version (hideously expensive...and then they went and released the live DVD that came with it separately later on and added bonus content to try to entice people into basically double-dipping). It's not my money being spent, but it'd suck to splurge on the limited version of this only for there to be a cheaper option shortly after. I've warned them and all, but I'd still feel guilty if it happened. They said around the time of dooAdore's release that it was a turning point to their final phase and Taro implied early in his solo career he wasn't sure how long he was going to be able keep on singing. Unless something significant changed in the past two years, it's pretty possible it will be.

    Kind of interesting that the same guy who wrote "autism -Jisheishou-" decided to collaborate with a group that encourages the polar opposite sort of views, but okay.

    Bumping this in the hopes that somebody can offer help. I keep getting this error nowadays when I try to load nicovideo and haven't been able to get it to stop: Can't exactly download anything since nothing will load anymore. Nicozon is an alternative for watching some videos, at least, but I can't manage to download from there either.

    Ryutaro from Plastic Tree likes animals in general, but he's especially into cats -- he tweets about his own cat a fair bit, has fawned over other cats on numerous occasions, his bandmates have brought up his penchant for cats before, and there was at least one group interview that had to get partially edited down for brevity because him, the interviewer, and the other guest (Aijii, from LM.C/ex-PIERROT) got on a tangent about cats. (On that note, Aiji is pretty fond of cats) Also, I'm amazed nobody has mentioned Atsushi Sakurai yet; he's like the resident cat oyaji of VK.

    Dunno about that, but I was looking in the results for this musician: https://video.fc2.com/search/video/?keyword=浜田麻里 There's definitely some stuff there I've not managed to find through Youtube, so I'm not sure of that. In any case, my current FLV downloader doesn't seem to be able to swipe anything from the site. =/ How do I check out the Network panel you mentioned, if you don't mind?
  18. SakuraFox512

    Does anybody know a way I can download from this site? I found some super-rare live vids from a musician I like, but I'm coming up blank on how to swipe videos from there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    There are a bunch of rarities I'd like, but I'm broke and have to prioritize two things stand at the very top of my list: * There's a certain obscure-ass demo tape from Plastic Tree I'd love to own. The thing didn't even have a title, and there were only 50 copies made, which were all distributed at one specific show they were part of...in 1995. I have literally never seen it around, despite managing to turn up demos -- both for them and other bands -- with even smaller print runs (we're talking to the tune of 10~20 copies). Which is terribly frustrating, because from what's known about the tape, it has a 'really bizarre (/trippy)' alternate recording of one of their more unexpected songs that shows up exactly nowhere else. * "Welcome to the Double Bed", a demo tape for the titular band Double Bed, predating Kuroyume (...and Garnet...and SUS4...) alike as the first band Kiyoharu ever fronted. I was keeping a lookout for the thing for ages, and then had a couple week span where I was hanging out with some of my extended family and didn't keep a close vigil...guess what I learned had finally surfaced after the listing had already ended?
  21. In celebration of their long careers, MORRIE and Kiyoharu have announced a performance ("MORRIE's Solitude & Kiyoharu's Elegy") at Joe's Pub in New York on August 16, 2019. Further details for the event are expected to be revealed later Source: https://www.barks.jp/news/?id=1000167450 + MORRIE's twitter post and Kiyoharu's

    @inartistic If I have magazine scans, should I edit the files to leave just the images of the band, or do full-size page scans, which may include the text from interviews, have a place on the site? I imagine there's plenty of obscure info that could potentially be gleaned from old articles, but I guess dealing with a bunch of large images might be troublesome as well?
