memorial day

current mood: impressed

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Here in the US, its officially a day to commemorate U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. Unofficially, its the start of summer, a time for barbeques, trips to the beach, and sitting in traffic. Heretic that I am, I'm going to use this weekend to memorialize something else. ff120 entrusted one other thing to me for scanning. BiTch that I am, I wouldn't even give her a sneak peek of the scans when I finished them. But I'm sharing them today so we can all remember together; the wonder that was Climax Together:





For two days in September of 1992, Buck-Tick owned Tokyo Dome Yokohama Arena, and probably the hearts and minds of most of the young people in Japan. Scans today from the Climax Together tour book.














































I can never decide what I like best about this live; the emotional beginning, the juicy middle, or the happy ending. I've narrowed it down a bit. First, the beauty of "Jupiter," Atsushi's memorial to his late mother:




But I also want to leave everyone with a feeling of joy. The triumphant conclusion of this show brought smiles to everyone. Even the band, as evidenced by those uncharacteristic smiles throughout this encore.

OKGUY raises glass full of vodka with a splash of Chambord and wishes my best Boston friend a happy and healthy summer. Much love as well.

Is it possible to know me better...you've seen it all, you just haven't yet peeled back the layers.

Don't. Ask Tigerpal what the end results can be.
BTW, I don't think we've met? Hi.

Maybe not in the too distant future at Noir, but it seems like a tough crowd on Friday nights.
