current mood: cynical

I've come to the conclusion that having things to look forward to makes life good. This past year gave many of us too few good things to look forward to, and even things to fear or dread. I'm not sorry to see 2011 leave. My greatest wish is that 2012 yields lots and lots of good things to look forward to. With hope, I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

And a warning of caution... This New Year's Eve, DO NOT find yourself in the company of Sir Christopher Lee as the evil Mr. Midnight! From "The Return of Captain Invincible," Mr. Midnight tries to push the alcoholic Captain off the wagon with force. And a song :D

Another year is almost over. I for one, will be glad to see 2011 go. In a year marked by tragedy and shared misery, Buck-Tick managed to end it on a high and happy note. For that I am very thankful!

Not that the whole Day In Question livestream thing worked well for me. I foolishly decided I'd watch it later, assuming that the live netcast would be overburdened by users. Boy, was I wrong. Not properly understanding the language didn't help. When I tried to view it at lunchtime, I *thought* Nico Nico Douga was telling me it wasn't working because I could not watch it until 3:30 today. Wrong! I have only until 3:30 today to see it. With all the pausing and stuttering there's no way I'm going to be able to view it today or any other time. I am very, very thankful to a wonderful, generous person on livingonthenet for saving the day ♥

I've been off all week and its given some time to get caught up with things, relax, and actually scan some stuff. I finally updated my scan index, which to my horror hadn't been updated in over two years. I also realized its time to do something I'd been avoiding; clearing out all my clippings folders once and for all. Today I'm clearing out everything I have left from the first half of 1988.

Imai's expression says 1988 was a very good year!Collapse )

The Day in Question 2008

December 28th, 2011 (10:51 am)

current mood: nostalgic

In anticipation of the DIQ 2011 live streaming event, I've been re-visiting a lot of the earlier Day in Question concerts. My dearest wish is that I don't somehow screw up the stream tomorrow! I've certainly screwed up things on Nico Nico Douga before D: Now that I have a functioning account there again I have another chance.

Yesterday afternoon I was really loving Day in Question 2008, so I decided to share it : ) SEE the spectacle! WATCH Imai play theremin with his foot! HEAR the music! It's all wonderful. Scans today of the Day in Question 2008 from Fish Tank 051 from March 2009.

This way to the DayCollapse )

Now it feels a bit more like Christmas. Thank you speedygz ♥ You make the loveliest cards I've ever seen!

And not even out of the shrink wrap yet:

I just got the shipping notice this morning. What a surprise! Watch your mail :D

Days in Question

December 24th, 2011 (09:19 am)

current mood: grateful

I can't believe the holidays are already here. Honestly I don't look forward to them because I get too mopey for my own good when I should be spreading cheer, or at least making an effort. Thanks so much to skh, sparklingai, saikouteddy, and jenbowie for the good wishes! You all really lifted my spirits ♥ And I owe a big thanks to the Kimfairs for their generosity and thoughtfulness ♥ The highlight of the holidays (so far) was a magical day spent with brainwhisper at a sumptuous holiday lunch and "Hugo" in all its 3D glory ♥

My Dad will be here shortly and Christmas will officially commence. I want to wish all my friends a very happy holiday and may it bring you peace and good cheer ♥ I have a few modest gifts, in the form of Buck-Tick. With the Day in Question rapidly approaching, I thought it might be fun to look back at the ghosts of Days in Question past.

Images from Day In Question 2003, 2004 and 2006Collapse )

Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2011 (07:11 am)

current mood: shocked

It's no secret. It's my favorite holiday. Due to a dearth of parties this year, I will likely go to work as Meg the Dogtown Witch : ) Who am I kidding? Even when there are lots of parties, I still dress up for work.

I hope everyone does something fun today, whether it be a party, eating lots of candy, watching spooky movies, or just making zombies. I love making zombies. http://www.zombieme.com/free/

Happy Halloween!

scraps and cuttings

current mood: nostalgic

I guess its time to get back to the business of truth. Although I like lying. It's fun :D

I've been working on a movie since the beginning of August. Nothing to get too excited about, we're not out shooting film or anything like that. It's an anthology film that my Fest comrade and I are putting together for our upcoming 20th anniversary. (Gee, everyone's celebrating anniversaries!) "Fest" is a 24-hour movie marathon/party we host every winter. It came to our attention that not everyone has been able to make it to Fest all nineteen years, or *gasp* they might have fallen asleep once or twice and missed something. So we're re-visiting 99 of our favorite films this year. Eleven will be re-shown in their entirety. The other 88 are making appearances in "Memories of Fest," our little movie. It's two hours of pure glee and I'm looking forward to its big premiere on March 2nd. Meanwhile, I'm still polishing it and making it look pretty.

I watched the most amazing movie on video last night. It's enough to make me regret that Fest 20 will be purely retrospective. A work colleague put me on to this film called "ThanksKilling." Yes! It's a Thanksgiving-themed killer turkey movie, made by a pair of 21 year-olds on a budget of $3500. (Best film by 21 year-old amateurs since the Taylor Twins' "Evil Cult." Which by the way, is playing again at Fest 20 this year.) This film stars a foul-mouthed (no pun intended) evil turkey puppet named Turkie. Got an extra small gravy-flavored condom? Turkeyologists all over the world know it as ThanksKilling! Really, check it out and have a giggle (or gobble gobble motherf***er).


Buck-Tick's 25th Anniversary announcement has got me all nostalgic for the old days. I have a folder full of clippings I call "The Orphanage," because it contains random pages, partial articles, and the remnants of a young fan's scrapbook that I can't properly identify. I've scanned a batch of some of the older ones to share today.

Violence Shock? No, just wild, wild youth Collapse )

25 Days of LIES! Day 25

October 21st, 2011 (05:56 am)

current mood: impressed

And one last lie... I was right about EVERYTHING :D Ahahahahahahaaaa! I considered saying that they will pursue world domination, but apparently there's some truth to that, in a rather bold and musical sense. If you hear only ONE sound for the rest of your life make it Lingua Sounda!

Nice birthday present, Imai : )
