I guess 30 chapters isn't that bad.
I'm making a serious effort not to become an audiophile. Like flac files and stuff are just gigantic, but I do go for 320 when I can. Oh, ear wax. Yuck. xDD..but it definitely happens. If you didn't know, I wasn't being serious about you rolling around in dirt. XD Maybe my ear just needs to get used to having stuff jammed into it. I hope that's the case..same with yours. x3
Ohh, that kind of fan. The only fans I see pitting artists against each other are generally Momusu & AKB fans, some of them at least. Well, and I've heard about K-Pop anti-fans and that stuff, but I don't follow K-Pop that closely. It really doesn't make any sense..like why would you devote time and energy to hating a group? Isn't that technically supporting them? I know what you mean in regards to the actual person rather than their appearance. Sometimes though, it's hard to see past certain artists images to who they really are..so I guess magazine interviews can be good for that. I'm sure Namie could do something I don't like, but it's just that it hasn't happened yet...actually FAKE is horrible and unlistenable. But I mostly blame AI. xD
Ahh, I love Hello! Project. I think to like groups like that and JE, you have to like the idols for who they are and the other things they do because honestly, the music doesn't cut it on its own a lot of the time. I'm resisting the urge to spam you with H!P related stuff so consider it a favor.
I've kind of been under the impression that Namie pretty much does whatever she wants inside avex/Vision Factory. It seems like it's Ayu who's forced into releasing mass singles and incidents like A BEST..but I totally agree management makes most of the decisions and labels print the music and make profits.
People on AHS do that a lot - if you sift through posts in artists' threads they have virtually no substance. On arama though, I rarely read the comments. xD..I just read the article if it's interesting and post some sort of stupid pun. I don't take anything or anyone that seriously so I think it's fun.
Maybe I'll try to use my lj more often, I dunno. But I mostly use Wormie and a couple other people for outlets like you said. If someone seriously read through my shouts on Wormie's last.fm and page here they'd be able to find out virtually everything about me. I post some pretty personal stuff without a second thought. xD We know people read it too, because she never posts but people who view my page here end up linking themselves to hers. xD
I never meet people there, I guess I don't know how to do it. Hah.
Yeahh, we could have had double birthday parties and everything! XDD. But really, I don't think anyone in my grade in HS had the same date as me. I kind of wish someone did though.
Before last.fm I didn't know the extent of Brazilian fans. I don't know why they're always bashed there though, but it gets pretty bad. xD..maybe because they're generally shirtless in their profile pics? Lawl, I'm kidding..sort of. Ohh, so you're kind of infamous then. I only post when something I agree with is trending. So I guess in that sense I'm just jumping on the bandwagon.
