*Points to Icon* THUDDDDDDD.... Ever seen a Japanese Vampire Rock Musician?
Ok - you know how they say people can wear their hearts on their sleeve? Me - I wear my enthusiasm on my sleeve. Especially when I find something - or in the case, someone - who just makes me go WOW!!! I tend to jump in full force - getting all the info, links, etc - that I can find. It happened with X-Files (remember Xof is Fox spelled backwards...lol) - it happened with Queer As Folk - heck, it's happened on a fandom level, many times.
Wellll, in the last week - I found something that touches a LOTTTTT of my buttons...lol.
Vampires - Oh Yeah.
Slashable boy on boy touching - Oh Yeah!
Rock Music - Oh Yeah!
Eclectic, fantastical drama on stage to a crowd of f'ing tens of thousands - THUD!!!
lol.... And I wanted to give my STRONG recommendation to my flist so that I could share the wealth. So pretty please - I'm asking for you to treat yourselves by taking a look at what I've amassed below!!! (I appreciate your time...lol.)
Who am I talking about? A man called "Gackt" - a Japanese musical Superstar!!! Who until a week ago, I knew absolutely nothing about. Bad xof! (No - don't run away!!! You have to see the pictures!!!) He's one of THE biggest things on the scene in Asia - and has been for almost ten years. He's drop dead gorgeous, multi-talented, says he's a 400+ year old Vampire!!! That alone should get you to stay around, folks! Add in that he does stage shows that'll make your jaw drop, plays multiple instruments, incorporates martial arts into his act and likes to tease the audience by feeling up his fellow male band members - it's allllllll fantastic!!! Oh, and did I mention his music is SO GOOD!!!
I'm including several recommendations under the cut for youtube.com vids of his performances - including "Lust For Blood" - which you HAVE TO SEE!!! It's his vampire rock song - and I'm tell you, you'll love it! (If you're a Laurell K. Hamilton or Anne Rice fan - you NEED TO SEE THIS.) Also, there will be fantabulous hot photos to entice you to take a look!!!
Pretty please - click now!!! ( Read more... )
If you stuck with this through the whole post - THANK YOU! It took alot of work to do this...lol. And yes - This now means I have to get back to a certain...uhmm, fic - that I'm working on. *xof ducks head* - but I needed to get it out of my system!!! I truly hope that you find the time to look at the vids I recommended. I think they are more than worth the effort!
The man has a beautiful, entrancing voice and he deserves a wider audience.
