Sakura Con Rant.

I am seriously not going back next year if there are no good guests. WHY?

EDIT: ok... maybe not 95%.. more like 90%

CAUSE FUCKING 90% OF AMERICAN CON GOERS FUCKING SUCK.


There are good people, yes of course. But honestly.... 90% is a percentage that I just can't deal with.

I met some really nice awesome Americans though!!
CASSIE
DANIELLE
MATTHEW
The GIN was super cute and SUPER nice~
That really tall Tsuna 8'D
The Millifore we met were all nice too! (GET BACK TO WORK SPANNER)
The really pretty Konan...
CASSIE'S FRIEND! I'm afraid I don't know your name... But I felt so bad for hitting you so much at the Giru live... <3
Cassie's other friends... <3 thanks for letting me invade your room so late 8'D
The super hot male!Sebatian
and the SUPER NICE SHINKU that lent us the use of her box!!! <3
I LOVE ALL OF YOU GUYS!!!!

Of course... the Canadians... <33333 Sarah, Julian, Scott, and Mia 8Dbbbb Everyone else from Van-city that I knew before 8Dbbbbb and of course KISUKAITE FROM DA 8DD


Then there are the really BAD Americans I (or my friends) ran into D8...
That one girl who zoomed up to me and hugged with without asking and said "you been captured."
The people who hugged with without ASKING.
That one girl at the Giru concert who thought she could push me around cause I'm a tiny asian compared to her.
The guy that said in a Wapanese voice "KA-I-RI, SO KA-WA-II"
The American fans that don't know furi(tsuke) or anything of that sort... and say WE'RE idiots for doing it.
The idiots at the BACK of the Giru concert 'mosh pit' where they actually moshed and stripped and whatnot retarded crap.
The idiots at the Giru concert who thought it would be good to shout "FUCK YEA GIRUGAMESH" erm NO DUDE D8... RESPECT
The creepy pople who came up to us and TALKED TO US as if we're their friends... D8
The idiots who CAN'T RECOGNIZE ANNA D8... and kept on calling her Kadaj or whatever.
The people who take pictures of you when you're not looking and without asking because they're too shy or whatever to ask for some. DUDE. ASK! We'll most likely say yes and you'll get better pictures.
THE IDIOT SCON STAFF FOR COORDINATED THE AUTOGRAPH LINE UP RIGHT AFTER THE GIRU CONCERT. You guys can go fucking die in a fucking ditch cause you're all so fucking stupid. GOD.
That creepy pimp dude I had to hid Nicole from with my fucking SLEEVE.
That creepy dude who stroked Nicole's arm.
That other creepy dude who patted Alice on the head at the rave. WTF?!
The people who fucking rubbed off Sara's Dino tattoos cause they have no FUCKING RESPECT.
and the general people WHO STARED AT US... FOR LIKE 20 MINUTES because we were fucking ASIAN. D8
ALSO... the people who don't put any effort into their cosplay... THEN TURN AROUND TO DISS OTHER PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WORKED SO FUCKING HARD TO FINISH THEIR COSPLAYS. Dude... those people should take a good look at themselves first. GOD.


That concludes my rant. I really really HATE attending any Jrock concerts in the US now. Fucking hate it.

Edit:
Cassie brought up some good points but I would like to say that honestly... There's a lack of respect at SCon going around. I'm not saying everyone is like that, but a large percentage of people I ran into did not leave me with a good impression. Maybe it's cause I'm used to AE where everyone is so nice and I never get pissed off. Scared, yes. Seriously pissed like now, no.

Sakura Con 2009

LOL so I actually went this year, not like 2008 -cough cough-

Day 0 - Thursday
Wow. It took us like 5 fucking hours to get to our hotel in Seattle. We stayed at the Renaissance on 6th and Madison. Our bus took us to 3rd and Marion and um, WE FREAKING WALKED FROM 3RD TO 6TH... ALL FUCKING UPHILL. Not like gentle slope uphill people... it was like freaking QE park D8. Ok, by the time we got settled down, we're completely DEAD. Lo and behold Jeff and Alice have to finish their cosplay. We all stayed up till 4 ish just watching them finish and lying on the beds laughing. Speaking of BEDS.... 3 people to a double bed is not comfy... D8 AND BEN NEARLY POKED MY EYE OUT WITH HIS HAIR THE FIRST NIGHT D8.

Day 1 - Friday
Woke up with a leg cramp. D8. We all got up at like 7-8 ish to get ready. Got there at 10. I took a look at the pre-reg line and the one thing I thought was, "... FML". It was hella long. Longer than AE's long long line up. So we lined up. Ppl kept looking at us. We were that badass 8D. Anyways, we got our passes. Sara and I spent the next.. 2 hours running around looking for people we knew. Why? We wanted their event passes for the Girugamesh concert. We wanted everyone in our room to be able to go. But in the end, Alice, Ben, Jeff, and Nicole went and gamed instead. I felt so bad D8. (Due to the fact that for one room, we can only get 4 event passes -cough-room stuffing-cough-)
 
 

GIRUGAMESH
It was... fucking AMAZING. At first the Slants played D8. The vocalist was ok... but dude... he licked the freaking guitarist/bassist's sweaty face.... EW. Anyways. Everyone was really pumped for Giru. Right before they came on, the really anal SCon staff told us to move back. Unfortunately... I was standing behind two chicks... TWICE MY SIZE (width wise... not 10 feet tall lol). I was nearly SQUISHED to death D8. I managed to elbow my way to the near (2-3 infront of me) front (I was like 6 or 7 people from the front), stabbed a girl with my hairclip too lol. She was pretty pushy and shoved me around alot too... or else, I wouldn't have. They played Break Down and then Ultimate 4. The rest, I honestly don't remember the order. But honestly... American fans suck. D8. They don't even know furi(tsuke). I gave up on doing a lot of the furi half the time >_>. Then... they go off the stage. God, they don't even know what to shout... Some people are like GIRUGAMESH, and some people are like EN-CORE!. We were honestly the only ones saying EN-CO-RE. I screamed myself raw. They came back on back they heard the en-co-re. They played Owari to Mirai. I LOVE this song and ended up doing furi for this WHOLE song. My arms were so SORE! Ryo-chan's smile was so cute, especially when he sang along with Satoshi. Speaking of Satoshi... he's got a really really amazing stage presence. Nil and Shuu were so cute too when they were playing together. After the con, we went to get our autographs. Thankfully I bought a CD earlier. I got the booklet signed and sneaked a whole bunch of photos. -cough-ALLEN-cough- During the lineup, I met Sarah, Julian, and Scott. Sarah had such a cute outfit~

After this... We went back to the hotel (didn't eat dinner) and went hot tubbing. I'm so glad I did so. My feet were SO SORE. Took lots of pics of Nicole/Alice getting dunked and whatnot. And of Alice pole dancing! 8D Afterwards, Jeff and I walked over to the Red Lion to borrow a glue gun from Cassie (THANKS SO MUCH <33) I got back pretty late... at 2:30. Went to bed at like 3.

Day 2 - Saturaday
We all slept in till 12 and by the time we all got ready to go to the con it was... 3 pm. Sara, Yili, Alice and I completely missed the Girugamesh Q&A. But.... we were just in time for the signing. At first, I cut the line with Emery and got my DS signed lol. Ryo was like "Woah, DS!". Same with Satoshi lol. I told them all to Canada 8'D. Then I cut the other line with Kevin and got my flyer signed. I sneaked a whole bunch of pics during this time. xD. I ended up going over to Starbucks with Sarah, Julian, Scott, and Mia before the KH shoot. We then met up with Jonathan... in which Nicole accidently knocked off a 'jewel' of his cosplay and we ran inside to find an outlet so we can glue gun it back on. Then we went and took pics at this small park between our hotel and the con center with Nicole, Tara, Sara and Jeff. We walked back when it got way too dark to pics and met up with Sarah, Julian, and Scott again. We (and Sara) headed off to the Cheesecake Factory and had STEAK 8D. It was so good. I had the flatiron charbroiled steak. After, we went up to their room at the Hyatt. I was waiting for Joey to text me back cause she was staying at the same hotel. She went to sleep already D8. We stayed about an hour, had a beer before heading back to our room. I went up to Emery's room for the night cause she only had three people in her room versus 7.

Day 3 - Sunday
I woke up EARLY just cause Sara said she wanted to get up early. But when I came down, no one was up so I ended up playing Tetris for like 30-45 minutes instead lol. She got up and so did Yili and we started to draw on her Dino tatoos. That took FOREVER. I went ahead to the con to see get some more photos in. I met up with kisukaite from DA at Cheesecake Factory. 8DD (IT WAS SO NICE MEETING YOU). Then the others came and we took some more pics. I started feeling really sick and was kinda out of it till after the con was over. We went to Cheesecake Factory again. It was also Jeff's bday and his family also came down. They ended up going to a movie while I felt really sick and went back to the hotel. I went downstairs and went on MSN till they got back. We all watched TV/played TWEWY while we had some Smirnoff coolers.

Day X - Monday
We (Jeff, Nicole, Ben, and I) woke up really late today at 12 while Yili, Sara, and Alice got up early to go shopping (as they were leaving early). Later in the day, after Jeff left, Ben, Nicole, and I went shopping too. We visited Nordstorm (expensive!), Sephora (I wish I could afford that Bvlgari Omnia Amethyst perfume! Well, I could... but I wasn't about to spend it on THAT), Westlake Mall (bought this really nice ring there), and Macy's (where I also found this really nice perfume WHICH I DON'T REMEMBER NAME OR BRAND D8). We went back to the hotel, got on a cab and went to the Quickshuttle bus stop. The trip back to Vancouver only took 3 hours this time, versus 5. The border guard that Nicole got was pretty fucked up though. "Are these people your friends?" in a way as if she can't friends or something. God. In all and all, I had a ton of fun!
 
I ended up taking 1580 pictures.
I spent $65 on food, $60 on hotel room, $50 on merchandise, spending a total amount of $170 of the $300 I brought.
I met many many new people.
I got asked (or didn't even GET asked) for too many random hugs.
I felt so skinny there.
I was almost squished to death by two fat chicks during the Giru concert.
I got my DS signed by Giru.
The only things I bought was Giru's Music CD, Hibari folder, and my ring.
I'm dead tired but I have at least 2 photoshoots coming up for probably this month.

Pictures are coming... later.

(no subject)

Only now that I realize that time has crept silently upon me, working it's spell on my young unsuspecting self.

I don't know why I faded out of Jrock. Was it because it was too slow? Sudden grow in popularity? Whatever it was, whatever that had happened,  I must admit, it was effective. I was distracted, allowing other things to take over my life. Those 'other things' allowed me to exposed to more types of music that I have found quite enjoyable. If you had asked me exactly a year ago what I would be doing now, I never, in a million years, would have said 'not that into Jrock anymore'.

Don't get me wrong now, I still listen to it at times. But admittedly, after listening to the TWEWY soundtrack for the longest time, it unlocked my past habits of hip-hop and rap music. I still only like oldies pop, nothing's changed there. Then I drifted. Also... Jrock was beginning to become an expensive hobby to keep up. (I wonder if I should sell my possessions?) I've gathered up quite an impressive amount of merchandise on a tutor's $10 an hour, 2 times a week type salary.

Around thing I've drifted from is this. My LJ. I used to check my friends page religiously. Then not so much, then, again, more so. Now... I just check the hitman_reborn community, if I even remember that is.

Regardless. I've been away from Jrock for so long that when I do actually check gazette_daily for such things as scans, I'm thinking in my heart how proud I am of them. And not just Gazette. Alice nine, Kagrra, Girugamesh... to name a new. I look back into when I first got into Jrock and realized that they've all achieved something amazing in these years. And I was there to witness it and helped them climb onto that pedastale at the top. I suppose I was fairly attached to Gazette as I'm sure many of you have been attached to Dir en Grey only a few short years before. And like you, I've watched as their music progressed, as they explored new horizons, and as their fanbase multiple in the magnitude only seen in bacterial growth. (With no offenses intended to anyone.) I remember when Gazette was just a small time visual kei band and only a handful of people in Vancouver even liked visual kei. And I KNEW all of them. Nowadays... I just might run into someone who likes it just about anywhere (there are asians).

But I've come to realize that even if I don't keep up or even listen to the new stuff, Jrock will be something that I will always hold dear to my heart, for they have helped me through some of my darkest hours. I'm eternally thankful. I'm also thankful for the many friends that the fandom has introduced me to, whether or not we still keep in touch, I still want to thank you guys for whatever time we spent together.

Wow, this is just me rambling on randomly at like 2AM. I shouldn't do this type of thing too often... need sleep.

SURVEY 8D

To all non-asian/whitewashed-asian person on my list, I have a question for you guys!!

WHAT IS YOUR TOP THREE FAVOURITE CHINESE FOOD DISH?


This came up in a conversation between my friend and I about American/Canadian-Chinese food.
And in turn, I'll tell you my three favourite Chinese dishes x3
