Morning Cup o’ Music

When I’m up late at work, coding away at the site’s core HTML and CSS, I find that it helpful to have background noise going on that I don’t really have to listen to, but also drowns out the tinnitus that I have to hear ALL THE TIME. Hence today’s track.

I return from a long ass weekend in full on weeaboo mode, so prepare yourselves for a solid week of Kamui Gackt. Who’s that you say? Oh just click and you’ll find out! I got turned on to Gackt (no pun intended) years ago during the era of Napster or was it Kazaa when you […]

Donate to the 2011 J-Pop Festival’s Kickstarter Page, Get Swag

It’s a win/win situation isn’t it? I mean, they’re not just asking for free money without giving you something in return. Seriously, if I were a San Francisco native, I’d be attending New People’s J-Pop Festival just to pick up the deliciously sweet crossover toy MIKU-KITTY.

I Love Japan: Gackt – Mars

I Love Japan: Gackt – Mars

I’m venturing that a good portion of the people visiting this site (minus me, King, and Styos) don’t know who Kamui Gackt is. Let’s just say that the man is a huuuuuge star over in Japan and the subject of today’s I <3 Japan article, though more accurate to say his masterpiece album Mars.
