To sum things up

Today has been a day of doing absolutely nothing. Which was extremely nice after all that's been going on lately.

Friday was Art Cube. No technical trouble this time either; seems like they finally got things sorted out, and it's nice to be able to enjoy a full set list again (even though they're short anyway).

Setlist:
1. Pain~ Wing・・・
2. 虹化鏡
MC
3. you're here...
4. 失楽蝶

I wish Seiji would find something slightly more useful to talk about in his MCs, but at least he's able to be entertaining no matter what he talks about. This time he mentioned how they've released three singles (and failed at counting to three on his fingers, lol), and that the new 'keitai cleaner' is good for wiping off foundation from your cellphone, so we should all go buy it. No mention of a certain tour...
They also managed to sell the last copies of the Shitsurakuchou single at this live, so it's all sold out now.

I felt like we should have done more for Seiji's birthday, but a couple of people did bring gifts, so at least he got something.


Saturday was THE VELVET. They've not been doing many lives this spring/summer, and I wasn't able to go the the show in July, so it had been a while since the last time I saw them. But to make it up, they're having another live already this Thursday (^.^)

Setlist:
1. ストリッパー
2. クライベイビィ
3. 狂った夜に
MC
4. ヒロイン
5. ポワゾン
6. 白いカラスは眠れない

This was the first time I saw them without Lem (drummer who left the band in June), which felt really weird, but I'm glad the other two are still continuing. And it's so nice to see how much more confident Bera seems now, compared to a few months ago. (He used to keep to himself, avoiding eye contact etc). He threw himself down on the stage last night and started playing guitar with his teeth x) That's never happened before! But it's great to see him losing his reserve.
 





Does anyone know of a website or something with info on movie theaters in Shinjuku with a list of when movies are being shown? o.o

Re: shinjuku theaters
ah, thank you :) This'll probably come in handy later too.

I was just about to ask if you had heard any more about Art Cube's European tour. I guess it isn't happening after all?

It has been announced on Visunavi, and it's on several of their flyers. It's just that the band hasn't talked about it at their lives yet. They might still not know exactly when and where and want to wait until they do? :/

Days of doing nothing are my favourite :)

I am glad THE VELVET's guitarist seemed to have enjoyed himself that night! And I'll definitely go with you to the other one (not on the 13th, unfortunately).

Well thank you for joining in on the guitar solo ^^; It's awkward being the only one, but at the same time I'd feel really bad if no one did anything.
I'll be looking forward to the 09.21 then :) (btw, according to their OHP, we can't reserve through the band for that particular live, but have to buy tickets through Pia/Lawson)

So I can try to get it tomorrow at Shinjuku as well.

Bera is like a completely different person (now that someone actually bothers with standing in front of him *cough* poor guy ^^;) I hope you get the chance to see him again :) Things seem to be going well for the band, now with the planned sponsored event and all.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, gather in front of MiMi. If I wait until the others have lined up in the front row, there's still an open spot right in front of Bera, so I've started standing there (And you might have seen what I wrote about the guitar pick earlier :/ ) But I think he's great too, so I don't mind.

lol, it won't annoy them to get fanart. That address is ment for both reservations and other fan mail. You should definitely send it. I've never seen Velvet fanart before, so I'm sure it's not something they get too often.

aw, your comment about MiMi made me laugh. That's cute. I've never noticed anyone hand him any sort of gift, so he probably really appreciated that.

btw, their flyer is up at one of the vk CD stores now. Haven't seen any there before, so that's progress :) (Though it's at a random place with no other flyers, so it kinda gave me the feeling of MiMi sneaking in and slapping them on the wall when no one was looking...)
