Dir en Grey Tour 08 “The Rose Trims Again”

Last week, I was able to finished watching the latest Dir en Grey Live DVD “The Rose Trims Again”. Dir en Grey’s fan should definitely watch it, so be sure to do so:).

I think Kyo has matured in the way he sings, he can still deliver his best voice untill the end. In the past, I can see it clearly when he grew tired toward the end. Nice Kyo!

My favorite part is Number 15 “Lie Buried With a Vengeance” and 23 “Gaika, Chinmoku ga Nemuru Koro”.

Have you watched this amazing live of Diru?? Please share your favorite part here:)?


Tour 08 The Rose Trims Again is a live DVD released by Dir en grey on April 28, 2009. The feature show was recorded on October 18, 2008 at Shinkiba Studio Coast in Tokyo, Japan, with bonus footage recorded at the band’s December 29th show of the same year at Osakajo Hall in Osaka, Japan.

Promotion for Tour 08 The Rose Trims Again began in winter of 2009. Promotional images and videos were released throughout the campaign via the Japanese iTunes Music Store, and the official homepage of Dir en grey.

The standard release of the DVD features only the Tokyo show, while a limited edition features the main disc as well as a second DVD featuring a selection of songs from the Osaka performance, the band’s first performance at the famous venue in ten years, and documentary footage chronicling tour preparation.

Good Bye Michael Jackson!!

Posted in Michael Jackson with tags , , , , on July 6, 2009 by kaorublade

I’ve been a fan of Michael Jackson since a long time ago. If I’m not mistaken since I was 5 years old. The first song of Michael Jackson that introduced me to his song is “Black or White” and possibly his song is the first song that I really liked since I was born.

There were times when I couldn’t sleep if I didn’t listen to Michael’s song. Probably untill middle school, I kept listening to his song before I go to sleep at night and naturally since no new material coming from Jacko since 1995, I listened to him less and lesser. Until…the album “invicible” came around and I really love the songs “You Rock My World” :).

If many people just started to listened to Michael again after his death. I have listened to him again two months before his death. I don’t know why, but I just miss his voice and for that two months I kept listening to his song( I don’t know, but you might call this a “sign”) and of course, excitedly waiting for “This is it” Concert.

Then that day of 25th June, 2009 came. My friend texted me and gave me that horrible news of his death and of course , not believing it, I tried to search the news from the net and after seeing his news in my local TV, I started to believe that the “King of Pop” has died. The sadness is unbearable and I nearly cried everytime I saw his news after his death, especially the one that talks about his behaviour.

Michael is a great man and I think we are all agreed that nothing can change our love for him. Good bye Michael!
