I find it interesting that towards the end of his life (before his death in 2009), Michael Jackson began resembling GACKT in his persona as "Samurai".

As much as I love Hatsune Miku, I wish they had done something a bit more true to her character vocals such as:

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Live-The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku【English & Romaji Sub】

Of all the awesome songs she has performed, this was not one of them. What was with the vocal overlay? Her voice was barely audible. They really missed the boat with this performance. I hope they don't blow it again if she ever gets the chance to perform on television again. She has too big a following to mess up like this.

Makes you kinda wonder what types of politics were going on in the background there... :blink:

I'm just taking it to mean that they are saving all the real songs for the actual performances and this was just a taste of the Expo Intro Song ;)

Sadly, I saw this story on TVJPN a couple of days ago, but the thing that caught my attention when reading this story was the following:

A fire official told South Korea's Yonhap news agency, "Twelve people were killed at the scene, two others were killed while they were being rushed to the hospital. Others are assumed to have passed away while receiving medical treatment." Officials believe 20-30 people were standing on the grate.

I was trying to understand how the two people were "killed" while being rushed to the hospital...I hope there wasn't an accident associated with this tragedy as bad as things are already.

かわいそう なことですね...

With so much on my plate I just haven't explored it.  Even when I worked at the radio station and had to give myself a crash course in just about every music genre I could think of (to fill in for MIA DJs)  this never came into play. There is so much good music/TV/movies/Books out there (and this might be some of the best) but my "to be read/done/seen" pile is so massive this just has had little focus.  Even though I am a mild Nippon-o-phile.

As much as I would love to go to one of these showings, the size of the crowds would be intimidating. :sofa:
