    It's looking that way, unfortunately. Their twitter hasn't been updated since the last show they played, which was sometime in 2018. Their linked OHP has 404'd as well. For the 夜紫 solo vids, he's regarded as "ex-CATFIST." And as for the solo project...... I didn't dislike it, but it's nothing I'll hype. The vocals were kinda strange, they kinda gave me a karma from AvelCain meets Anders from In Flames sort of vibe.
  2. Compared to the 己龍 and Royz compilations, this is very disappointing. Only a few re-recordings, nothing pre-BPR, nothing other than singles. I was kinda hoping they'd re-record something from CANDYMAN. Not feeling very enthusiastic about this 🤷‍♂️

    Re-recordings are a mixed bag. Some of them are great, some of them are dog shit! I think the only band who has hit it out of the park with re-recordings is and cali≠gari (not counting the TURN minis, those are... a different realm). The complete re-recordings of 10 and Bluefilm are far superior to the originals, as is マグロ 2017. lynch. and girugamesh have also done very well with their re-recordings (although for lynch., their album version re-recordings were not very good, like JUDGEMENT and ADORE). Everyone else (I can think of) has been mixed... MUCC did fantastic with 新痛絶 and 新葬ラ謳; some of the songs were better than the originals, though there were a few others that were sub-par. On the other hand, their other re-recording album, the one that shamelessly appropriated BUCK-TICK's 殺シノ調ベ, was dog shit. My problem with a lot of re-recordings isn't so much the vocals, it's that the guitars are severely lacking and just sound weaker IMO, like on DIAURA's INCOMPLETE, グリーヴァ's re-recording mini (they should have just released the full demo of Bondage, I will never forgive them for not doing that), and a lot of SUICIDE ALI's re-recs. I'm not a recording engineer and I do not play guitar, so I'm not really sure how I can explain this better. Although there are definitely some re-recordings where everyone does a piss poor job all around. Rant time: the GazettE's TRACES VOL. 2 is an exhibit to present in these arguments: talent ≠ intelligence; the GazettE are some of the stupidest fucking people in music; bands should stop self-producing their albums unless they're Converge. Production-wise alone, it could have sounded better, but it didn't, because they wasted production money on special instruments and completely forgot that garbage-in is garbage-out, and because they were monitoring it with fucking EarPods and probably laptop speakers as well. I guess if your band name is all lowercase, you're more likely to make great re-recordings :thonk:
  9. It's not, which is a shame, 'cause it's way better than the original
  10. Tried uploading torrents on JPS today. Mixed bag, a few were successful at high speeds, but one of them has five leechers, I'm only connected to one, and the upload speeds have never hit 100KB/s, rarely went above 50. UGHHH

      And I'm using open ports. And it's a 730mb download, so I feel kinda bad for those leechers

    Just a bunch of cali≠gari shit, praise be All in all, a very good batch. I was thinking of getting more while I had time, but I decided to stick with what I have for multiple reasons. Might take a pic of my cali collection on the shelf when I'm done ripping everything. I'll also be taking some more pics/scans later on, there's a lot of great artwork here. I copped 回想、睡蓮と向日葵 for ¥2,600. I was expecting something to be missing/broken, but turns out, the worst thing about it is a small tattering on the obi band. I think everything I got here was for a reasonable price, although マグロ was ¥5,000, 残響、睡蓮と向日葵 was ¥2,500 (sealed though), and the 職業病 mini was full price since it was from Ao's shop. Everything else was a good deal at worst.
  12. And my cali≠gari crate got shipped, hooray! Now let's hope my town doesn't get evacuated before it arrives. Fire season's early this year...

  13. Fucking hell yes, my suruga-ya order finally got to the warehouse, after an entire month of challenged patience!


    Now I just wait for the Amazon stuff I ordered today, then I can finally ship my next cali≠gari haul

  14. I did some math and 61.2% of the songs in my iTunes library are Japanese. The percentage of Japanese artists is 58.66%. 157.95GB of a total 258.83GB

      Out of curiosity, how'd you do the math? :o I could do something similar by counting all the songs I have under the genre tag "visual kei" and probably like half of the songs i have tagged "emo" or "screamo", as that's the most of 'em, but I'll still miss a lot of other stuff.

      For the grouping field, I use national regions, e.g North America, Europe, Japan, Australia. I also have grouping tags for VK, doujin (trying to cut down on that shit tho), and Bandcamp for some reason

    I've been playing the Spyro Reignited Trilogy lately. I have no intention of reaching 100% in any of them (lol). I am absolutely horrible at those speedway/raceway levels, and I am not here for some of the bullshit that comes my way later on in later games. I beat the final boss in Spyro 1 after enough tries, have attempted the final boss in Ripto's Rage a few times and don't really give a fuck (I still have PTSD from Gulp), and have unlocked the final boss in Year Of The Dragon, but I'm not sure if I'm even gonna try. With the first two games, I managed to get every dragon/orb and jewel in the main (non-raceway) levels, but not as determined to do so with YOTD because some of these levels and challenges are absolute bullshit. 50% of time spent playing any Spyro game is just sitting through loading screens Until a few months ago, I was playing Donkey Kong 64 with Openemu, but have kinda given up on that. I finished Crystal Caves, totally stopped trying to get every golden banana (even regular ones). I just got tired of all the bullshit bonus levels, and the fact that they are an absolute waste of time, especially if you don't beat them the first try. The game just started to feel like a chore. I might give Creepy Castle a try eventually, but I know I won't even get close to the final boss, because you need two coins that are dependent on beating two old arcade games no thank you.
