MELLO club party'09


My daily rhythm is completely messed up. For the last few weeks I haven't been able to fall asleep until 6 in the morning, and of course then I end up sleeping until 4 in the afternoon. Nothing wrong with going through the days like that (Though you don't get to see much daylight), but it causes problems those days when you have to get up early. Like today.

OIOI (marui one) re-opened at a new location last week, with new stores added, so we decided to check it out. I'm so happy they've added a ZEAL LINK to the top floor (^o^)/ We didn't have time to explore the entire place (we could easily spend an entire day in there), but so far it looks good.


After walking around for a few hours getting tired and hungry, we were off to Ikebukuro for another live:

The tickets had an "Etc." added to the list of bands.... Whoever that was supposed to be, they never showed up. The first band playing was グルグル映畫館 (guruguru eigakan). They're an old visual band formed back in 1995, and they've kept a lot of that "old school vk" feel to them, which was interesting. Though they weren't my cup of tea, I did like the nasal voice of the vocalist.

Sugar played quite a few tunes tonight, as they didn't spend any of their time doing stuff like an MC etc. They didn't even stop to breath between songs. I'm not very familiar with their music, but I had seen them live before, and do enjoy their performances. SIZNA usually steals the show, not only is he constantly moving about, but he's making weird faces throughout their entire lives, being 200% more into a song than everyone else (He's also fairly skilled on the guitar). I didn't expect anything else to be able to distract me from his antics..... until Loki entered the stage half naked D: D: When did he decide clothes were a bad thing? And when did he start doing strip dances? D: *focus on sizna! focus on sizna!*


Kaya was still sick, like at his oneman last week. (He kept coughing right in our faces, so if I wake up with a sore throat tomorrow: Thank You Kaya -__-;)
The set list:
1. Pourriture noble
2. 鏡鬼 (kagami oni)
MC
3. Silvery Dark
4. 火車 (kasha)
5. Rose Jail

I was surprised he decided to do Silvery Dark, having such a bad cold. And he did indeed have problems singing parts of it. The MC was also short(er than usual; Kaya is incapable of doing a short MC) because of all the coughing etc. He didn't have any important announcements, so it was just small talk and chatting with the crowd. That's one of the things I like about his MCs, which makes me not care so much if they're long. They're funny, for one thing, but he also talks with us, not just to us.
I missed having Yui around for Kasha, but Kaya did a good job on his own, getting everyone to shout, jump and wave their arms. I can't remember ever seeing him so lively during this song before. He was all over the place :D

Second row is a pretty good spot for Rose Jail, as you'll then get the front row to serve as your padding when the people behind you jump into you. So this was where I intended to stay. But as the crowd rushed forwards, a spot opened up in front of me, and I was pushed into it. I became the padding D: CYBER doesn't have any barrier between the stage and the audience, so all we could do was bend at the waist, and lay our upper bodies down upon the stage itself while everyone else jumped on top of us. I don't know exactly what happened, if I twisted my back as several people landed on it or whatnot, but when the chaos ended and we got back up on our feet, I felt an intense pain in my spine/lower back. It completely ruined Mello's performance for me. I really wanted to enjoy it, as I thought they were great. But as I stood there, the pain just kept intensifying, whether I moved or not. It's been 7 hours now, and the pain hasn't subsided at all. It's sort of scaring me. A lot.
Please be ok body! T_T

Kaya didn't have any of his dancers with him today, but after the live OCHI suddenly appeared out of nowhere. He was shyly standing in a corner of the room until most people had exited the livehouse. Then he went over to the merch tables and bought a couple of Sugar photo sets. I didn't know he was a fan :) And it was nice seeing him as "one of us" and not just as a dancer next to Kaya.



ouch....

OMGOMGOMG please be okay. @_________@; If it doesn't get better by like, tomorrow, go see a doctoooooor D=

Back pain is the worst. x____x

The performance sounded like fun otherwise? It's nice hearing that Kaya talks *with* his audience. ^^ What are some of the things he normally talks about?

It did get better over night. Some of the pain seems to have moved on to my neck, but it doesn't feel like my spine snapped in half anymore (I was seriously afraid of moving last night, cause something felt "off" in there). So hopefully it'll be ok in a couple of days :) Thanks for your concern <3

Kaya talks about love a lot. But he'll also ask people where they've travelled from, if anyone are seeing him for the first time, what they think of various things...
There was onyl one guy who raised his hand when asked who was there for the first time yesterday, and Kaya then took his time going over to him, leaning into the audience (the guy was on third row), and welcoming him.

Okay cool, glad to hear you're feeling better. :]

D'aww, Kaya's so cute! Seems like the traveling question is pretty standard, but it was nice of him to walk over to that guy in the third row and welcome him. ^o^

Eep! I hope the pain goes away soon! T_T

Aww, poor Kaya. I'm amazed he can sing his songs with a cold! I know I sure as hell can't sing worth a crap with a cold XD -impressed-

It has gotten a little better. Thank you <3

Yeah, even though he had some problems singing some parts of the songs; where he didn't, they sounded perfect. With all the sniffing and coughing, you could hear it wasn't just a light cold.
The only time he has cancelled an appearance was when he was actually hospitalized last winter. Though I hope he doesn't push himself too hard, I'm glad he makes an effort for the sake of us fans.

I hope your pain is nothing serious... :(

Did you visit the new Moitie "shop" inside Kera Shop Angel? How small is it??
chounohana
Mar. 2nd, 2009 06:20 am (UTC)
I didn't get to check out Moitie, sorry. But I will next time I'm there (when we don't have to rush off to get some food before going to a live), so I'll let you know then.

just watching rose jail on videos scares the hell out of me...X_x

i hope you'll feel better after resting...also Kaya.

I love Rose Jail live, and I can bare the pain that's included, but a spine injury would suck x_x But it's not as painful as it was a few hours ago, so I think it'll be fine if I give it some time.

Kaya doesn't have any lives planned for the next couple of weeks, so that should give him a chance to rest up :)

you were to the mello club party XD .. why didn t you say anything, then we had met up. I was there too.
Wasn t it horrible, this little room and all the guys?
Do you know the name of the first band?
chounohana
Mar. 2nd, 2009 05:54 am (UTC)
I didn't know you were going to be there. I did see you in the crowd right before the show started, but we were too far from eachother for me to say anything, and when the live was over I couldn't find you :/ Sorry for not being able to say hi.

I prefer small livehouses, so I didn't mind the size of the room at all ^^; I was actually really happy to be able to see Kaya at a place like this again.

The name of the first band is グルグル映畫館 (guruguru eigakan).

I didn't have time to check out all of the new marui one, including Moitié. But I will the next time I'm there, so unless you've spoken to someone else who's been there by then, I'll let you know what the store is like.

For some reason your entries aren't showing up on my friends page (;__;)

I didn't expect anything else to be able to distract me from his antics..... until Loki entered the stage half naked D: D: When did he decide clothes were a bad thing? And when did he start doing strip dances? D: *focus on sizna! focus on sizna!*
*_______*' Tehehe...Loki is nice to look at I think *-*'
I'm sad they're disbanding. At the moment so many bands are disbanding or have members leaving, what's up in Japan? (;_;)

I'm really sorry to hear that about your back D=
Are you okay now?

I've heard the crowd to go wild at Rose Jail, but I couldn't really believe it. It's Japanese people after all and personally I'm not really getting any wild vibes for that song...I like it, but I wouldn't get as crazy as the Japanese fans seem to.

Aww, that with Ochi buying photo-sets is cute~
Maybe he only came to see them live and meet them backstage? X3
chounohana

I had that happening to someone on my flist a while back. It fixed itself, so probably just a temporary bug.

Loki looks OK in pictures, but sweaty, half naked in-real-life-Loki with pants cut so low you see a crack every time he turns his back to you.... Not really my thing (゜д゜;)

Now that you mention it; might some of it have something to do with the financial crisis? Japan is having trouble, and being in a visual band is expensive enough as it is without the current situation in this country.
It may not be related at all, but a lot of people are having problems moneywise these days.

And nope, still in pain. But it seems to be getting better :) Rose Jail is bad enough for Kaya to tell people who don't want to get hurt to leave the front area before the song starts. Cause you WILL get hurt. I've seen people leave the livehouse in tears a few times.

I was wondering why Kaya didn't have Ochi with him on stage. He obviously didn't have any better places to be x)
But as you said, I hope he got the chance to meet the band backstage before the live ^^

I hope so~

Aww okay 'XD Low-cut pants are sexy, but when they are pretty much starting beneath the crotch it's a little awkward...I still remember the picture of Whiplasher (Deathstars, vocal) where you already could see...well ^^'
Loki's hipbones are pretty hot I think, but I wouldn't feel the need to see his ass.

Mh that could be true. I haven't thought of it that way so far. Though all the people leaving give other reasons. But who would admit "Hey guys I have no money. I really can't do that anymore even though I want to. Sorry."

o___o Why is everybody getting THAT crazy for that song?!
It sounds a little strange to me that Kaya...approves of people getting hurt. Yes he tells them they can leave, but..."Everbody~! Please leave when you are scared to get hurt because bones probably will be broken now~ I want you to smash each other for my song~~~"

Maybe Kaya wanted to try and see how it would be to be on stage without anyone else? Usually he always seems to have his dancers around... Or maybe someone fell ill and couldn't come and only with Ochi he didn't want to perform?
After having read that you said he stood around being shy, I can imagine him too well blushing a little and reacting over polite and a little dumb when meeting Sugar X3 Doesn't have to be the case of course. Maybe he got along well with them without being nervous.

I think it's the whole combination of those pants and the sports bra thingie he was wearing + the dancing (oh the dancing...) and the fact that I was in the front (my friend's a fan) x)
Can't say anything regarding his hipbones, as I made an effort to avoid that entire area.

Kaya did recently write in his blog that everyone should mind their manners during Rose Jail. But I think it's gone on for too long to really do anything about it now. Which is why it's always the very last song he performs at lives.

...Sports bra? 'XD What?
If he would been like that in front of me I probably wouldn't have set my eyes anywhere beneath his chest either, but on pictures they definately look nice. (if you like prominent hipbones that is)

That's good at least. If you're tired and worn out you can step back and watch from behind without being crashed and don't have to worry about losing your good spot in front. If it would be a song in the middle of the concert I probably would stay where I am just to keep the spot, but when it's the last song and you're not up for it you won't miss anything afterwards, that's good. =)
