eidfjaiufeofldksfjds OMG You have no idea how excited I am for this:

Rammstein are back in the States for a small tour, and I've been wanting to see them for like 8 years, so this is pretty epic for me. I need SOMEONE to go with, though, or I can't go at all.

After fees, cheap tickets are $65, and the expensiver ones are $100. I'd prefer the cheap seats, and that probably means General Admission, so comfy shoes are a necessity.

The date is May 20th, the venue is The Forum in Inglewood, and tickets go on sale tomorrow morning.

Con TL;DR )

After putting my stuff away we went downstairs to the concert. We got front and center and Did Not Move. >) It didn't take long before the band came out and started. OMG seeing them live is so awesome. :D I don't even like their music too much (though after hearing them live and listening to them on the drive home, I do enjoy listening to them now). [livejournal.com profile] zombiequeens has their set list after we found it on Facebook, btw. Lalala, so as the show was starting, this tiny little Kyouko cosplayer from Japan came up next to me, her mother right beside her. I asked if she was part of the fan club, and indeed she is. She was literally a foot shorter than me, though, so when the music began playing I just about shoved her in front of me so that she could uh SEE THE SHOW that she paid $3k to see o_o;;; Her mom was a bit taller so she was able to see over some shoulders. So, front and center were two Kyouko cosplayers, an Akira right behind them, and off to the side another Kyouko and a Jyouji. Short of there being a Zin, I think the band was pretty happy to see that. ^^

After the first song I felt a tap on my shoulder: Another girl about a foot shorter gave me the puppy eyes and "You're tall :'(" so I made some room for her behind Kyoukotan. ........Turns out she didn't expect to get assaulted by hair during a METAL SHOW, so when Kyoukotan was headbanging and whipping her hair back and ultimately smacking the girl in the face, she felt compelled to retaliate. There was some intentional ear-drum shattering shrieking to be had from her. :| Not appreciated by either of us. I'm all for excitement and being stuck in front of a speaker when it comes to reasons for going deaf at a concert, but doing it purposefully is NOT COOL. Be respectful, especially when you were shown respect first.

Blah blah blah, Lots of hard songs were played, lots of headbanging, and Jyouji had a few solos. ^^ He makes the silliest happy faces with his huge mouth. And Zin was such a creeper on Kyouko, sneaking up behind her and such. He did most of the audience interaction (Clapping and what not) and with his striped socks and school boy shorts he looked so adorable doing it. Akira was... Akira? I think he made eye contact with me a few times, but he smiled a lot in general. They all seemed really excited to be playing their first American show. :3

At the end, Kyouko made introductions and.... Akira gave us a lick of his drumstick THAT HE DID NOT THROW OUT TO US WTFF. I'm always hoping to catch a drumstick, but I would have muscled out for that one. *purrs*

While we waited for SeikimaII to come out, staff brought out water. WATER. And asked if we wanted any. Hoh shit that was awesome. After hydrating, Kyoukotan decided that she wasn't going to be able to deal with another, longer, performance of a harder-loved band while front and center. Security escorted us out so that we could get to the back, and.... I discovered that my horn broke. :( The Model Magic is drying out a lot, so I'd resolved to make a new set and retire the first after getting them signed by Inugami.

Found a place to sit in the back by the water coolers and SeikimaII came out. Blah blah blah I'm tired and don't want to type it all up right now. XP Just know that BOYS LIKE MANKO and one of the guitarists likes the sound of swinging tits. Awesome performance.

Unfortunately Inugami's first autograph signing was during the Seikima show and so we didn't want to bring anything to get signed with us (I wanted my poster signed; not risking that up in the pit). Looking back, I figure that we could have gone and come back since we were wearing what we wanted to get signed, but whatever.

Late night shit )

Good first day! Despite crappy sales :(

BACK FROM A-KON, PEOPLE!! OMG I have a week of catching up to do on Facebook, twitter, LJ, DeviantArt, forums.... SOB.


Highlights include:
Stress-free packing (a first since 2004!)
25 hours of traveling to get to Dallas from the Inland Empire.
The girl in the check-in line not being Mandy.
The Alphabet game at 2 in the morning with minimal road signs and even less light to see them. But it kept me awake.
Buzz Lightyear on the building wall across from our hotel window, Crown Royal in the reflection of our building wall on the Citibank building next to Buzz Lightyear.
A gorgeous view of Dallas from our 20th floor window.
Cure magazine wanting our photo as we wandered around dressed as Inugami Akira and Kyouko.
The SeikimaII concert right after. :D
Meeting other Inugami cosplayers.
Making new Artist Alley friends.
Getting my Inugami art signed by the band.
Getting. My. Melon. Farming. AKIRA HORNS. Signed. By. The. Band. *flips her shit*
Seeing Manny again. :D
His GPS having a dumb.
The 5 Silent Hills we drove through.
Waffle House babysitters.
Coming home to overcast and 91 traffic. Dallas ain't got shit on our Rush Hour.


Full report someday because it will be LONG. I was gone for almost a week.

So get this: For my first Industrial concert, I took my parents to see Assemblage 23, 5 years ago this month. It was awesome. They had a good time, I had a great time, it was a great show aside from it running late.

September 2007 A23 came back around for the Binary tour, I believe it was. I was in Japanese 2 at the time, and the day before the concert I had come down with food poisoning. The next day I was so drained from puking for 18 hours that I just didn't have the energy to go. I. Was. Bummed.

Well, HE'S ON TOUR AGAIN. Elizabeth, her friends and I were gonna go TONIGHT.

I woke up puking. Again. I feel fine, but once I get vertical the nausea starts to set in. It's weird. :( That basically renders me an invalid for the day. I can't even get myself water, lest I start dry-heaving at this point.

What the hell. TAT

Okay, fuckers. Due to some INTERESTING NEWS I HAVE BEEN TOLD, I am going to A-kon next year.

Even if I have to rob a bank to do it.

The reason is, INUGAMI CIRCUS-DAN is going to be there, their FIRST show in the US, with a Q&A and an autograph session. I basically have to be there or commit honorable suicide! So I'm going!

Is anyone on my f-list going? I AM CURIOUS.

Clearly [livejournal.com profile] zombiequeens is.

Holy crap: RAMMSTEIN. Favorite band for 7 years and I've never seen them live. I've seen bands that I didn't want to see before I've seen these guys live. BAH TO THAT.

They're releasing new stuff now, though, so that means a tour will be coming up. These guys can't resist a tour. D:

KMFDM tour

spoon9001: An eyeball staring at you. Judging you. >:( (Default)
KMFDM is doing a US tour this fall... October 16 in LA and the 17th in Pomona.... $25 tickets.

I kinda want to go, but I don't need to spend the money. Much as I love them, I prefer their old stuff to their new.

BUT they do hold a special place in my heart, and that makes me want to see them at least once. The last time they did a tour in my area, it was finals week of my senior year in high school, and I had NOBODY to take me/go with. :( So... yeah.... *hint hint*

I swear to the Avatar, people... I'm busy.More bitching. )

I'd post happier posts, but... I'm not Japanese and don't have a cell phone that can blog XP So once the blog-worthy happy-stance is done, I don't really care enough to blog about it. I'm actually quite happy these days. I get to see MUCC next week, I finally have an educational goal and job idea that could actually come into fruition, I actually have a social life that's not emotionally and intellectually draining, I have friends that don't make me feel like shit for being myself in front of them... It's refreshing. Veronica went back to Okinawa but she calls me every so often :D Makes me smile to gab with her for an hour or two like we used to.

Got a new phone on Friday. I had a Pay as You Go model that was used with a Family Plan, and now I have a red Juke. I. Love. It. Not even for the music player aspect, either. It's just a really slick design for someone like me. (I have small hands and long fingernails, for one major factor)

Visited [livejournal.com profile] sanji_cat for the first time in a while. Last time I saw her was at ALA. She's such a sweetheart T^T

Somewhere last week, I lost my sanity when MUCC (specifically their bassist) created a blog finally. How did I lose it? I said that I'd translate it. Why? Because I was insane for about 46 hours. But it's doing well. [livejournal.com profile] muccbrog is the community. Tell your friends that like this band called "muck". :D All the members have been very supportive and gracious and patient and appreciative of my efforts T-T

Next month, [livejournal.com profile] otaku_jrock and I find out the results of the manga competition.

April 10th, we have the Taste of Chaos tour (with MUCC and D'espairsRay and Transtic Nerve). W00t.

SPOOn had a night of total insomnia! It's been a frickin' long time, too!

So I watched my Malice Mizer DVD, utterly disappointed that the supposed "Beast of Blood" live clip was a Live video with Studio Audio. Yeah. Like a Friggin' Cher concert without the cheering.

"Live" my ass.

Although I found a cool trick that worked surprisingly nicely with the whole Malice Mizer Klaha-era motife. By telling the wrong settings to my DVD player, it played the ENTIRE DVD in high contrast black and white with a black flicker. Until I hit Pause and saw that it was still flickering, I thought that it was intentional, and was a very nice style choice. It still is, but... No. I know for a fact that their videos are in color, dammit, and that the screen is not supposed to flicker on PAUSE. :)

What else? Oh, yeah. I was up all night thinking about A) the SKIN concert (Just being there; I couldn't give two shits about the premiere tickets anymore) and B) Christmas. Yeah. CHRISTMAS. WTF? :D
