  1. Random af, but when did "influencer" become an established term?

      @colorfuljinsei @platy Thanks, about 2 years ago is what I was thinking.
      @AimiGen7 lol, sadly this is the world we live in. I use German as litmus test and since "Influencer" (yes, straight from trendy English) has entered German, then I think it must be somewhat established.

      it iis for quite some time now  actually. My seminar paper was about Influencer ( did it in German and yes I used the English word cuz like u thought it somewhat became an established term) and during my research I found articles that were over 2 years old already but imo its still relatively new most of the

      "useful" articles I used were not even a year old

      @Shir0 thanks for the input! That’s cool that you researched it.

  2. Check out our Summer 2018 Recommended Tracks! If your favorite artist/song didn't make the list, we need to hear from you in the comments :D 


  3. Halp, what is the secret to the audio embed ("insert HTML5 audio") feature?

  4. Hap Birth, Chi!

    1. Chi


      thank you fitzu! 😙

  5. Did the VK band DaizyStripper really name themselves after a 70s potato peeler or am I missing something? 


  6. Just saw Crazy Rich Asians and I loved the opening song. Gave me Shiina Ringo vibes.


  7. Any Kali Uchis fans here on MH? Please enjoy this ethereal goddess.


  8. Any MHers seen Hereditary yet? I was really surprised to hear about the major split between popular and critic opinion. I personally loved it! One of my favorites this year.

      @platy I would agree with that "unsettling" is a really fitting word!
      @saishuu Toni Collette was brilliant!

    3. Hohchicano96


      The film was a damn ride from start to finish; the only thing I'm going to say about the plot is that you'll be pissed on several characters' behalf.

      Toni Collete's performance was EVERYTHING. 

  9. I know I'm years late, but I noticed Sailor Moon Crystal was on Hulu, so I started watching it recently. I kind of love it?! I only casually watched the 90s series. It's of course a classic, but I could never bring myself to watch every single episode, because of the tedious "monster of the week" structure and the absolute milking of transformation/attack animation sequences. This remake, which I hear follows the manga much more closely, has much better pacing, a more serious tone, and a lot more variety when it comes to attacks. Some cheap CGI and nothing beats the original music, but overall, a really worthy remake, imo!

      i was not aware that it followed closely to the manga. however the animation is too awful for me to pick it up.....

    3. fitear1590


      @MamoHulu has the first two seasons of the 90s series dubbed (the new Viz dub, which is quite good); I assume they will keep adding the dubbed seasons, as they become available?

      (And all 3 seasons of Crystal are in both dubbed/subs)

    4. Mamo


      Thanks for the info.

  10. I was never even a huge ViViD/SHIN fan, but this song is giving me major KIDDIE vibes. Some good ol' pop rock.

      he is one of my favorite jrock vocalists (if not my favorite, Yusa is up there too :D ) and this release was awesome :D still hopin they come back as ViViD . ViViD is the reason i discovered jrock and visual kei in particular and yeah their debut stuff was bangin (dear/take off/precious/69-II).

    3. Mamo


      Try Vistlip

    4. yakihiko


      Yusa is now LSN (Legendary Six Nine) vocalist, he was 4/5 of their releases, check their music if you haven't and let me know what you think about, "haze" and "memento" are my favorite.

  11. Any MHers also MoviePass users? I've only had it for about a month, but I am loving it!

  12. Just out of curiosity, have you ever followed one of your favorite musicians/actors/etc on social media, and lost your fandom for them as a result of how they act/what they post?

      karai · ebi

      No, because I don't use social media to avoid pretty much what everyone said above. I don't care about politics or drama, I can't do anything about it and so I don't want to hear about it 24/7 and get harassed because I don't have an interest.

      That would probably be the main reason I'd lose interest in someone aside obviously from some horrible act like animal abuse / child abuse.

      I only made a twitter account this year to keep up with obscure bands releases, but I log in once a week to scan over lol.

    3. The Moon

      The Moon

      most vk twitters are milquetoast so no not really 

    4. Komorebi


      I mainly follow VK band guys and japanese gyas. I avoid western artists because they won't shut up with the politics and idiotic opinions about everything that happens.


      I don't care about some actor's opinion on the Trump Administration or global warming.

  13. Bruh, love your Skullomania avatar. SF EX3 had the best artwork.

    1. evenor


      and the SFEX series had (imo) the best music!!!!!

  14. What's your favorite loanword (from English, French, etc.) that appears disproportionately often in Japanese music? Mine is "qualia"

      Do phrases count? Because if so, then "For you"

  15. Which VK band (past or present) would be most fitting to cover the guitar parts?

    2. yakihiko


      I know no music from Lareine, but I think Kamijo was their vocal?

    3. fitear1590


      @yakihikoYeah, with Kamijo! Here's an example of Lareine's guitar style:


    4. yakihiko


      yeah, cool guitar def. Are the kind that up covers at yt?

      there are some covers channels that are really interesting to follow.

  16. Steady Holiday needs more love! Check out this simple, but beautifully shot vod.


    1. CAT5


      Never heard of them, but she's got a nice voice and the melodies are pleasant~

      I remember someone on plug.dj played their song "open water" and i liked it a lot. This one sounds nice too!

    3. fitear1590


      @Anne ClaireYou should check out her Terror EP from 2017! 


  17. Looks like PELICAN FANCLUB is losing their guitarist and the band will continue as a trio??

    1. Chi


      yeah it was a sudden announcement but kurumada is leaving :cry:

  18. Do "Am I the only one who..." YouTube comments ever actually reveal anything new or insightful? Sure as shit doesn't seem like it.

    1. Chi


      When I see a comment/post that starts like that, I stop reading right away Lol

    2. platy


      "Am I the only one who breathes oxygen? xd I must be the craziest person on the planet xddd"

    3. fitear1590


      @Chi probably a solid policy, haha
      @platy that is so cringe-worthy, yet totally plausible ;D

  19. GRIMOIRE Day, ayyyy!

  20. 4K restorations of older films is my sexuality.

    1. leafwork


      I wish it weren't practically impossible to get 4K movies on PC

  21. Kaya covering Malice Mizer's "Bel Air (ヴェル・エール)"

    2. seikun



    3. Jigsaw9


      slayed the hausu downnnn

  22. Slowdive x THE NOVEMBERS pic/interview! (Didn't have time to read it yet, but so cool that these two bands have officially crossed paths!)



    1. plastic_rainbow


      Ohhh nice! I should sit down and try to read through it.

  23. Sonic Mania!!! I've only briefly played it, but the combination of nostalgia (I was a major Sega Genesis/Megadrive and Saturn fanboy) and fresh new gameplay (while still in the classic 2D mode) is such a commendable balance. Can't wait to play more and with all 3 characters!

    1. YuyoDrift


      Dude I've been playing all afternoon haha its awesome!

  24. Not sure if trend-setting hipster or the next K-pop fuckboy.

    1. Peace Heavy mk II

    2. fitear1590


      @Peace Heavy mk II, hdu!!!1! Nah, it's a musician named Gus Dapperton, haha.

  25. Have your upload speeds ever dropped to like .08 kbps? It took forever to upload just a few megabytes of e-mail attachments yesterday X_x

    1. doombox


      I feel your pain. I recently changed providers and now mine does that all the time. :| 

    2. fitear1590


      I was wondering why I couldn't even upload pics yesterday! Is there any way to fix or 'alleviate' this problem that you're aware of or is it just a waiting game?

    3. doombox


      With my provider it's just a waiting game. I try not to do too much upload/streaming during peak hours. But if yours is more often then that sometimes the can install a "booster" to help you get a stronger signal?
