    Just found out that one of my blog posts was used as a reference in the J-fash Wiki so I think I can call myself a credible Visual Kei historian now

    If you so dearly miss the old Myspace and want a little nostalgia, make a Friendproject profile. It's a code-for-code ripoff of Myspace 1.0.
     
    Or you could do what all the cool kids are doing and make a Carrd, but fuck that, I'm using a myspace ripoff made by some weird christian guy that only minors use so I can relive a part of my childhood lmao. Just... without all the cool Pokemon RPers and stuff.
     
    Check out my profile! It's the most mid 2000's Vkei weeb shit you can get. It's super fun, but the site doesn't have much else to offer.

    In my few years of being a visual kei fan, I've talked a lot of shit, but I've also found my truest friends along the way. You have been with me through it all, and accepted me for who I am. You brought me back up when I was down. You even gave me a second chance when I was coming back from a downward spiral. And for that, I'm grateful.
     
    Thank you for being my friends. ♥

    I'm at a weird point where I know a super basic amount of Japanese words and grammar that I'm able to pick out a lot of words and context from Vkei songs.
     
    Maybe there is hope in me learning Japanese. Just gotta find the right program to work with. I tried Duolingo but I didn't like it too much.

    I nearly forgot what today is... It's my VK fan anniversary! Today marks 4 full years of being a fan. It's not about the time I've been a fan for, it's more about everything that makes me so grateful to be a part of this community and to have accidentally stumbled upon this music scene all those years ago. I've made lasting, deep friendships, I learned to become a nicer, empathetic person, and I've been given so much and have barely started to give back. Above all, my hobby brings me so much joy and I'm forever thankful to every bandomen, big or small, for making music that makes me (simply put) feel. And of course, to the lovely fanbase that has treated me so well over these past years. My passion hasn't wavered in the slightest, even from when I first became a fan. I feel like I'm in for the long run and I'm glad I have such a wonderful community in it with me. Thank you.

    Returning to the idol kei topic.
     
    Nowadays, when I watch/listen back to ViViD —one of the first VK bands I came across and one that I enjoyed the most— I think I can acknowledge the hints that actually indicate how heavily they were produced to appeal to the crowds in an idol way. So, they surely weren't that pure and artistical about VK and stuff, and of course could have had more than one A-side produced by one or more ghost-writters...
     
    But, let's be honest: can we ignore the fact that the arranges of their songs were fucking brilliant, and so were their skills as interpreters? Many, many kudos to Reno's polished approach to shredded guitar, IV's hyper-melodic bass lines, and Shin's VERY well managing of the VK vocal traits —whose exaggeration in some cases ruined great capacities forever, like what happened with Nightmare's Yomi— while at the same time enduring a full show delivering a constant and massive vocal flow.
     
    This band was a fucking thrill, although the commercial intention of their project became so blatantly notorious in their last releases that many fans (myself included) lost interest almost inmmediatly.
     
    That said, I really wish that nowadays' idol kei bands, even if they put their efforts to make that kind of career into the scene, at least make something commercial in the level of the quality bands like ViViD did back in their time.
