Post-PMX blogs by the members!

Current Music: Suicide Ali - Hakugai no Asa
Hi everyone! I thought I'd share my translations of the members' blog entries following PMX, where they share their impressions, etc. Original posts can be found at their OHP - and keep in mind that not all of them have posted yet (and half of them claim "to be continued"). I'll edit this post with any further updates as they come, so keep checking back over the next few days!

Goshi: nothing yet

Yuu:

I'm back!

At any rate, I'm back home safe.
We were too busy to go sightseeing but it was fun.
I'm tired today so I'm going to go sleep now.
I'll write with my impressions tomorrow.


11/06

6:55pm Departed from Osaka Kansai Airport.
4:04pm Arrived in Los Angeles

Time turned backwards thanks to the time difference.
When we got to the airport, we joined up with the American staff members who help out with our webpage and Myspace.
I had met some of them before Suicide Ali existed when I went to Mexico, but it was 3 years ago.
Then the PMX staff came to meet us.
Then Roger showed up after oversleeping.
It was 3 years since I had last seen him too.
We all rode to the hotel together.
In the evening we went to a bar set up for maniac football and basketball fans.
I got more steak and potatoes than I could finish eating.
They brought me a glass of cola so huge I sort of freaked out.

It was warm in LA, so I was able to spend most of it in a long-sleeved T-shirt.
The sky was so blue and spacious.


11/07

Pacific Media Expo 2008
Our sound check came to a sloppy start with some weird American jokes mixed in around 4:00pm.
My guitar was a Bacchus Les Paul. My effectors were a Korg tuner, Crybaby wah-wah pedal, MXR phase90, Beheringer UM300 Ultra Metal
Amp was a Fender Twin Reverb (rented)
With a Twin Reverb amp I felt like Kurt Cobain.

The live started around 9:00pm.

It was really fun.


11/08

To add to yesterday's entry, we had two opening bands before our live.

Starting at 10am on the 8th we had an in-store(?) event in the form of a Q&A→relocate→in-store→relocate→photo session→relocate→interview→in-store→TV(?) interview→interview. ...I don't know anymore.
I think it was all over sometime before 7pm?

Around midnight we crashed.
Good work.

Changing the subject, but (something about The Golden Spider's Akuma Kouchiku Ron... sorry, he lost me here)


11/09 last day in LA

Woke up around 7.
Had an in-store signing and photo session at the Cure booth starting at 10.
Around the lunch hour we had about five? interviews.
After that we went by car to the location for our photoshoot.
We arrived at the location in the evening while looking at the Hollywood sign in the distance.
The photoshoot ended and we went back to the hotel.
Had dinner in the hotel and went to a party starting around 10pm.
Checked out at 4:00 the next morning

It was a really busy 3 days, but it was a really good time meeting so many new people.

I'll come again!

Thank you.


Hiroshi:

We're back~

We're back home. Ah~. It's Japan...

We were pretty busy in Los Angeles since we had such a hard schedule, but it was so much fun!! I'll talk more about that later. *laugh*

To everyone who came to see us, thank you. I'm truly grateful. And the local staff was also very good to us. Thank You!

So for now I'm going to take the Rapi:t (rapid train) home.

Sleepyyyyy.

To be continued.


Hisashi:

Hello~

We're back~.
We made it back safely from LA! (Though it was actually the 11th when we got back, but...)

We didn't get to go out just for fun at all since we were on such a hard schedule, but the LA performance was really fun!

Being able to meet the fans in this country that was previously unknown to me and communicate with them at the signing sessions and stuff made me really happy.
It was a really precious experience to me.

As for what everyone is probably wondering about most, the live... it was honestly really frustrating... but there was nothing I could do except be filled with an anger that I didn't know where to release.
But thanks to the fans who came from Japan to see us, and all the American fans, somehow or other I was able to keep going.
When everyone in the hall started chanting my name for me during the encore, I felt pathetic for being so depressed and angry over something like that.

I wonder if the people who were at the concert are reading this...
It's thanks to all of you that I was able to recover. I'm truly grateful to you all. Thank you.

And Roger, I'm really sorry for worrying you so much. Thank you for being so encouraging throughout the live!

Becky, Tiffany, Reiko, and Morrigan helped out a lot too.


Thank you all so, so much!

Aww.. Hisashi is so sweet (^__^) Thank you very much for the translation!

I'm glad they enjoyed their concert here in the US. I hope they come back soon. A shame they couldn't see any sights, but there honestly wasn't much to see around there!

We all felt so bad for Hisashi, and of course was wanted an encore. So I was glad that he came back (( kicked the drum set )) and started playing again.

When they came back for a second encore, I was really happy, and I think all the fans were too!

Favorite Song?

So what's Yuu's favorite song? I want to put it on my "PMX Concert" playlist. Does anyone remember what song it was?
