春っぽい



It's Spring in Hydeist!!!! Isn't it lovely this beautiful layout? It's interesting to see the flowers at night. It has a creepy atmosphere, ne. Very cool!

I wonder how is Haido san doing nowadays? It's getting closer the release of Evanescent, ne. I am truly looking forward the new single. Hope to meet Hyde soon in Hydeist again.

The Lord of the Flowers



One day, I hope to have as many works of Art as Mr. Waterhouse has. He worked a lot during his whole life and left many many paintings. Some of them, I simply love. There's beauty and mystery... I do love passing my time looking carefully some of them, principally the Mythological ones. I admire him a lot.

I illustrated the paintings with verses of Laruku's lyrics. It was pretty fun trying to do so.



『今 私に運命の時を
告ぐ鐘の音が鳴り響いている

あの丘を赤く染めゆく頃には
あなたへと
旅立っている』

「まんぷす Vol.09」と 季節の匂い

.
.
.

.
.
.
The new issue of Monthly VAMPS is out today!!!
It seems to be other great issue, ne. It's said in the site, that there will be an interview commenting everything on the new album. I am truly curious about that. There will also be a special design in the ‘Break taboo’s session". I am really looking forward the new issue ^^

I loved the art works that were featured in the site this month. I had no opportunity to do an art work for “MONTHLY VAMPS wants your art” session, but when I saw the pictures, I thought that if I did something that would definitely be about Spring, ne. Such a beautiful season is such an inspiration.




However, I am in the Autumn here. It's already fresh and enjoyable. I hope to have the windy season coming soon. It's the greatest point in the Autumn, for me: the wind that blows constantly. And it surely makes the leaves to fall. I love the Autumn the most!! As for second is surely Spring and then Summer and the least enjoyable season for me is the Winter, ne. I am quite sensible to low degrees of temperature.

Talking about season, reminds me the entry Sakura san left some hours ago at his MySpace blog. The way he wrote was lovely. So, it kinds of lighted my heart. Thinking of the season and the changes we see in nature always makes me somehow feel good. Nature is a great thing, after all. Everybody must see its astonishing beauty, so maybe we all can work together to stop all the aggressions we are doing to the environment, ne. Let's preserve it!

Oh, but the topic is supposed to be about Monthly VAMPS, Viiiii! Well, yes... Gomen.
I am looking forward this issue's photo shooting. Will it be as gorgeous as the last one? The last one looked really professional. Just like fashion advertising. I liked specially their poses. It was quite dynamic. And the monkeys were so cute! There were also the photos of their guitars!!!! I loved the Zodiac one from K.A.Z. Quite gorgeous. VAMPS instruments are really beautiful! I felt like I want to learn how to play *_* What am I talking?
Talking about snapshots, reminds me that one of HYDE and his cigar…. Oh, I got speechless when I saw it. Quite suggestive indeed.




もしかしてハイドさんが。。。受け!? (笑) 駄目!!やばい!!

Though, I am quite a fujoshi, as I said before, when BL involves HYDE, it becomes a delicate issue for me. It hurts T-T

.
.
.

By the way, today I took some pictures. He's my dog, Joli, and an unexpected flower in the Autumn ^^

And

Shut up and let me go


The Ting Tings
Shut Up & Let Me Go

Hey!
Shut up and let me go.
This hurts, I tell you so.
For the last time you will kiss my lips,
Now shut up and let me go.
Your jeans were once so clean,
I bet you changed your wardrobe since we met.

Now, oh so easily you're over me
Gone is love
It's you that ought to be holding me
I'm not containable
This love now
It's not sustainable

I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
Shut up and let me go
Hey!

Shut up and let me go
This hurts, what I can't show
For the last time you had me in bits
Now shut up and let me go
For fear of living in regret
I changed this one when we first met

Now oh so easily you're over me
Gone is love
It's me that ought to be moving on
You're not adorable
I was something unignorable.

I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
I ain't freaking
I ain't faking this
Shut up and let me go
Hey!

Oh love, hold this.
Hey!

Hey!

Shut up and let me go
This hurts, I told you so
For the last time you will kiss my lips
Now Shut up and let me go
Hey!

素晴らしき土曜日

きゃー

Well, I´ll take a while until I translate everything that he said today in his BBS but it was too funny that it deserves to be all written down. So, wait a while.

Today was the best day! He left many messages. It was something that he did in a site that make a letter for your first love. The letters that came out were sooo funny. He did one for himself, JU-KEN and K.A.Z. I laughed a lot. He also said that he finished the lyrics of the GORILLA song and that it sounds like he's angry at someone (or something). I am really looking forward to it, ne. And in the end, he joined the chat!!!!!! It was the first time I saw it. It was quite funny and there was also ero talk. Very haidorashii~ I promisse to translate everything. ^^

Today was very interesting. I enjoyed a lot every second, although I am really feeling bad today. I think Hyde has healing factor. This man is the best!Hope this cute man do come to Brazil!


So, I can go and have lunch now. Have sweet dreams, darling *~

Here it is. It's very funny.

Letter from the First Love 1 No.93123 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 14:49:37

"Letter from the First Love"

HYDE, it's been a long time and no see.
Even now you still have that craziness about ponytails?” I miss you saying to me everyday:"If there's no ponytail, then it's not a woman".

You told me while I was sobbing "Although I love you, there will be a time that we will have to break up" among many other things. Then, you put everything clear and since that day we broke up, it's been passed 25 years. The years run really fast.

I wrote you this letter not because I had something in particular to transmit to you, nor because I had something to ask you. It's only because somehow I felt nostalgic when I passed in the front of the gate of our school and I was hit with the idea of writing to you. Fufu.


FIRST LOVE 2 No.93125 : HYDE 2009-03-21 14:50:08

When I think upon that time, it was always HYDE who had the control of the leadership of our romance,ne. No matter what I said, you'd reply me back, every time you called me at night, I was moved to tears and I felt so lonely that is like keeping the memories of 5 different people. Coming to think of it, every time I had the wrong idea about anything you used to say things such as "You're hopeless without me". I remember that when I told my female friends from school what you told me, they used to burst into laughs.

Anyhow, it was I who was HYDE's first love, ne. Oh, yes, that's right, that HYDE from the beginning of our romance, when we held hands together, you used to get my hands all soaked in sweat. Though I had to go to wash them fast by the time I arrived at home, seeing you looking so happy was enough for me (laughs)

FIRST LOVE 3 No.93126 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 14:50:42

Since the beginning when we began to date, and we were full of considerations for each other, you used to tell me "You can be with me for the whole life. It's OK for me because you are the only woman in my life". Although I considered if it was really true, I became very happy. After that, you said that line to how many girls, eventually? I'd like to know what happened after me.

Generalizing, I never felt embarrassed by having dated HYDE. I may have had other lovers more fantastic than you, but it was because of you that I, whom gets irritated easily, could become someone that can be stood by someone else, so thank you.


FIRST LOVE 4 No.93128 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 14:51:02

Although I wrote too much, even so, I loved you (HYDE) so much. From now on, I wish you stay the same HYDE , and, like those days, don't give up the dream that will turn into an arsenal of weapons (laughs), be very happy.

Let's meet again anytime. See you.

P.S. Have you already lost the habit of saying what you seemed to know under laughs?


It was the result from this site.

http://letter.hanihoh.com/

I feel lightly offended.

...

FIRST LOVE 1 No.93139 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 15:08:07

K.A.Z., are you doing fine?

You still make a circle on your favorite bikini models? I miss you, K.A.Z, who had as a hobby drawing circles in the magazines.

Someone else confessed his feelings to me and you bluffed ´Ahh, I am only interested in your body´, since that day we broke up, it's been passed 25 years already. The passing of the years is so fast.

I am not writing this letter because I want to ask you something in particular. It's only that I suddenly remembered of you and felt nostalgic, so it came to my mind to write you a letter. Fufu. I wonder if you are surprised.

FIRST LOVE 2 No.93141 ???: HYDE 2009-03-21 15:09:05

Now, when I try to consider and revise our relationship, somehow, the image I have is that of me getting angry with you and you looking heartbreaking. I was relatively good at having male friends, but you somehow used to keep some distance from women, because of that, you always blamed me saying ´you love men´ among many other things. Certainly, along the years, I became accustomed with men and I reflect if I made you unhappy.

Oh, yes, that's right, it was I who was your first love, anyway!? At the beginning of our relationship, when I said ´Tomorrow, I'll return the book I borrowed from my ex-boyfriend´, you told me, trying your best to show off, ´I also have to gradually cut contact with my ex- girlfriend´, but even now it's ridiculous (laughs)

FIRST LOVE 3 No.93142 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 15:09:17

When you confessed to me, you told me: ´I would die for you´. Of course, I thought that by no means I could die for you; however I still haven't forgotten your serious face when you said that. I'd like to forget that a little, though.

When I turn back and ask myself what I gained from my romance with you, I become aware of many things. Like the methods of distinct men that I should take precautions against and it is all thanks to you that I got practically accustomed to that by recognizing it in our every day life together. Thank you very much.

FIRST LOVE 4 No.93144 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 15:09:38

Although I wrote many things, I loved you so much. From now on, keep on being this very important person, and stop gradually your interest in listening devices (laughs), make a new person be someone happy, please.

Let's meet anytime. See you.

P.S. The Japanese doll that you gave me for birthday had her hair considerably grown.


....

Recording No.93221 Author: HYDE 2009-03-21 15:49:05



Today I am with these 3 people.

It feels strange.

We're recording the bass part.

While we eat Hagi no Tsuki (Japanese pastry)

I wonder who brought these.

Why is it so delicious?

Jaaga pokuru (Japanese snack made of potato) is also famous.

What a lovely weather~

Later, I will give my best on the lyrics of the 4th song

As for America, it's not that I am doing a particular expansion.... (laughs)

I'll only do a tour!

See you


Ah. No.93852 Author: HYDE 2009-03-22 02:29:24


I neglected you, ne.

I am sorry.

I finished the lyrics right now!

The gorilla one.

I did it

It's been a long time that writing lyrics was so enjoyable*


* At the end of the phrase, HYDE writes shita (tongue) in the place of the termination of the verb deshita. You have to read it together, so it makes sense. Tongue reminds me of cigarettes and cigars and sweets and... In the later of the night, he types tongue. I wonder what he had in mind...


Good night No.93974 Author: HYDE 2009-03-22 03:33:33


Even though I finished the song lyrics, they seem to me like angry lyrics...

I'll give my best tomorrow, too.



.
.
.

I finished to translate all the chat. I tried my best in converting the puns that were so funny.

Hyde is someone really very nice while chatting, with sense of humor (though it was very late and he was probably tired) and full of elegance. Yes, I could sense some elegance in his chatting. Oh, and a ton of cuteness, too ^^ He's made of honey, surely. However, the strongest image I have from this chat is of a tired Hyde, somewhere in a big mansion, after a long day of work, in the midnight hours, immersed in the delicious hot water of the ofuro. Oh, am I hearing him moaning with pleasure? hahahaha That is such a strong image to stay in a girl's mind from a miraculous Saturday, ne. I want to see the KING at HYDEIST again!!!! I want a Brazilian tour!!!!!!

Ohhhhhhh, I am soooooooooo happy now!!!!!! Is it a possibility of having VAMPS in Brazil at last? Oh, Lord, make it possible, please *___* But even if it's not the case, I am still happy because I know VAMPS will make lots of people happy doing this international tour. There are lots of American fans, ne. Hope it's South America, too.



Oh, Hychan, do come to Brazil to shake with us...No, with me ^^

By the way, my single arrived today, as expected. It has a lovely design and the PV making is really funny. Hyde's moon walking was superb!

「Show me landscapes 君が誘う、劈くような 鼓動にのせて」♪


.
.
.



.

There are an interview, photos, a movie comment and much more in the what's in site. So, if you like VAMPS just go there. I wish I had some time right now, so I could translate this interview. I also would like to translate HYDE talk about Internet that was inside the Monthly VAMPS vol 8. It's pretty interesting. Let's see how things go...

What's in website




Talking about VAMPS reminds me that lately when VAMPS release something we can see a lot of movie comments, ne. I think it's getting easier to artists promote their works lately, maybe. And also more relaxing, since they don't necessarily have to go to TV programmes in order to be seen, ne. Well, it's simply my point of view, but it may get easier because they can record their videos in their own places and spread through the Internet, ne. However, I felt really happy seeing VAMPS performing on MStation last week. Their performance was sooo energetic that I wish I could go to their upcoming lives T-T When a band performs live it's totally different from the single/CD version, ne. The sound, the voice seems more real, full of vitality. While I was seeing the MStation, I could not help getting excited and singing along, as if I was in a live or something. Very nice feeling, indeed.

By the way, MONORAL will do some lives in Spain. I was reading their entry on My Space last night and I really felt nostalgic about the day I went to their live. It was a such happy moment. I felt as if it was close the day I'd meet HYDE in person (kyaaaa). And their live was great! Well, but the thing is that I happened to dream with them this night. hahahaha It was a live and it was wonderful over again. I miss MONORAL!

Oh, by the way, there's a moment in the VAMPS 2008 LIVE DVD where Hyde sings along with Anis *___* Hyde is terribly seductive and Anis is soooo cute. Hyde is really like some sort of vampire (his behaviour and movements) and is reading on his hand the correct lyrics, so he can sing along. The BL fan service is far too intense:he grabs Anis shoulders, embrace him (not in the nasty way ^^), and almost(?)kisses him (kyaaaa) It's crazy. If I was in the audience I could have had a heart attack! To tell the truth, this DVD is a must and for BL fans it's a precious stone!!! What is that bath scene??????? I REALLY do have to do a review fast.

Lord how do I make time?

Since I am talking about VAMPS, I GOTTA KICK START NOW!!!!! My single must arrive today and I am already addicted. I love Internet!



VAMPS - I GOTTA KICK START NOW

I'm gonna try you out, Just shake & move, Not in a nasty way
I gotta kick start now (yeah yeah yeah)
I gotta kick start now (yeah yeah yeah)

I wanna go 抜け出せば

My heart by you 撃ち抜かれ退屈蹴って other way

君はbrand new & stylish 届かない all of you
でも可能性へ賭けよう

眩しいくらい はしゃぎながら

The King !

.
.
.

Yeah!

Well, the King was at His Kingdom this morning (this afternoon and night, in Japan time) and he was quite talkative and extremely nice ^^ He left 7 messages from 17:24 to 23:10.

At first, he said he was composing/editing the song that comes after the Cervus one. He said it's a song of high spirits.

Then the next comment was saying that the song was completed and that he was working on the one he called Gorilla. He said it's an awesome album, a perfect one. Here he used a kind of slang, a contraction (panee= perfect) and he said this slang is his favorite.

The third comment was one of my favorites, he asked to us to spread this site that is about abandoned animals, where you can know about adoptions and etc. Hyde is sooooo nice. The nicest, ne. That's why I truly love him for sooooo long.

La Pace


The 4th comment was all cuteness. The subject of the topic was a star ☆ and he thanked people for being solicit and for being sooo nice at his request ^^ He also wondered if the word he used "hirogete" is the proper one and said he was sorry. Then he flew a "ちゅ☆" (Chu). That one could make someone collapse, haido san!!!

The 5th was about his finishing with the Gorilla one. He said it knocked down Midnight celebration and wondered to himself why, then he said he would tell us later (*_*)

The 6th was quite interesting because I felt it quite personal. It was about the next song that he called a Mudskipper. He said it was because it was short and its image doesn't seem to be a mammalian for him. He said he has no obsessions among such things, actually. I thnk he was refering to the working names of the songs, maybe? I am not sure. He also said he's used to be drowsy these days around this time (around 22:00) and asked to himself why.

Then he told about why he's saying the album is perfect. He said when he saw the lineout of all the songs together, he began to worry about the second album. Then he said it was about this extend of perfection. He felt anxious because he felt he got closer to his limit of perfection. Oh~ I am the anxious now, haido san. You've reached perfection sooo many times before either in Laruku or solo. No worries about it, please~


The 7th was at 23:11:35 and he said he was going to turn off the light although he was going to keep working, doing minor things until the conclusion. At the BBS, people were trying to guess what would be the name of the 7th song but he said that it was better they not trying to think about it. Because after there will be a song of K (K.A.Z, probably). "Thank you all". "Arigatou"."Shitarana".

Shitarana is another slang. It means something like "See You". To tell the truth, since it's something I have been considering recently, I think haido does like to visit boards of discussions, such as 2chan or alike. Because he uses a lot of slangs used by people who talks in these boards, so... I am learning a lot, though.

Today was:

ちーす Chi-su= Konnichiha desu = Good Afternoon
ぱねぇ Panee = Panpa jaa nai = Perfect
したらな Shitarana = ??????????= See you

The other time was:

とりま Torima= Toriaezu = For now


Today I felt really happy when I saw the light on. I hope he comes to talk more. I am looking forward this perfect album. 「 動物園のアルバム」も楽しみに (笑)

The name of the songs follows its order, so it's something like it.

3- san- saru (Monkey)
4- shi- shika (Cervus)
5- go - gorilla
6- mutsu- mutsugorou (Mudskipper)

Peple were trying to guess the seventh song, following the number (like nana=7), but he said it's better not doing so.

The "ちゅ☆" and the site were superb!!!! ぱねえっすよ

まんぷす

.
.

The new issue of Monthly VAMPS seems to be gorgeous. At the website, it says they had a photo shooting with two different monkeys!!!! And they say it was funny and adorable ^^ It's because on that joke I mentioned before regarding the songs' titles, ne. I saw some of the pictures and they really look amazing. I love the cover of this issue and there are some good photos where we can see the sky crappers and the city below HYDE and K.A.Z!!!!






On the other hand, it seems I don't have any lucky with the session "Monthly Vamps Want your Art". It's the second time that I contribute but nothing.... This time I was quite full of hope, though T-T Mata ganbarimasu ne.



The rough sketch.





This one was the first one I began to work with, but since the schedule is quite small, I had no time to finish and send it, but I like the unfinished result somehow. I intended to use a lot of chiaroscuro in it, following my painting line.





It was the first one I sent, but it was not chosen. I tried to capture that atmosphere in Yoshitaka Amano's work. I love Yoshitaka's Art.Then, I made it totally in black and white, using the line dynamic to make it more interesting. I cared the composition a lot, too.



To the seventh issue, I changed my way of working mixing traditional art, so I drew the dragon in a paper and colored it in Photoshop.




Then, I laid it on the changed main photo that we were supposed to use. The result was this. Since I do like dragons, and the main photo had a that sensual MAFIA taste, so I wanted to transform VAMPS into comas. Like Yamane Ayano's characters, maybe???? hahahaha Well, that was my result.


By the way, I am trying to draw at Illustrator nowadays. I became a vector fan, so I have collected a lot of information on this subject and I found it's largely used in advertising, ne. And lots of art illustrators are using this vector art as a style to their work. Well, this one is a Illustrator exercise I did using a photo of my sister. I liked the result a lot, considering it's quite hard using vectors tools.

Walk On

Artist(Band):U2



And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage that you can bring
Love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind...

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed, to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart, it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on...
Walk on...

Home...
Hard to know what it is, if you never had one
Home...
I can't say where it is, but I know I'm going
Home...
That's where the heart is...

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
And you can only take so much

Walk on...
(Hooo)

Leave it behind
You got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you feel

All this you can leave behind

All that you reason, (it's only time)
(And I'll never fill up all I find)
All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress-up
All that you've seen
All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate
