My copy just shipped, so at best I'll have it by the end of the week ;_; CDJapan has been better to in the past regarding shipping dates, I don't know why this time around they waited until the actual release date to ship it out!

my roommates are having a midnight dance/poi party. I'm in my room listening to yokushitsu from the concert on headphones

she looks so happy. I really like the alternate versions of the songs from this show. I read in the free RAT that came with the DVD at Shinjuku Tower Records that since the show was one night only and in a traditional theatre they couldn't use the traditional equipment you normally use for concerts...so hence we get really cool versions of some songs...mainly the acoustic guitar strumming on yokushitsu...really nice results. stoicism was interesting...the lights were cool.

By the way, forgot if this was mentioned, but for everybody who hated the cover when it was released for "bad photoshopping" or whatever, it was a period poster, that can be seen on a wall of an office or backstage in the short Yatsuke Shigoto documentary footage. I love the cover, fwiw. Maybe a bit dated, but hey, check out the DJ/"manipulator's" screen display. That looks like it was 8 years old when they filmed this.

hahaha, no, your right, not to mention he had the really amazingly emo-hair style with a huge chunk that was constantly covering his face. 2 hours and its still impossible to tell what the man looks like.

Oooh, I love you CDJapan. I'm sorry I ever doubted you.

While you said so innocently that the cd was only "in shipping process", you had in fact already sent it on its journey across the globe, so that I could get it the day immediately following its Japanese release, while only paying for regular airmail shipping.

Well, thanks to Ringo~Bingo (thanks again!) I could watch that AWESOME concert... I enjoyed the old (in the cool way, you know), dull?, crazy Ringo for an hour, and I must say that I really miss her...

There were some moments that were especially great IMO:
  • 'Shoujo Robot' dance XD.
  • The whole 'Identity' performance... I think this was the best rendition to the song .
  • Ringo almost crying during 'Unconditional Love'. It's the first time I see her like that...
  • When Ringo jumps and gets crazy during 'Yokushitsu'. LOL, I thought she was going to fall down XD.
  • Curiously, I had never listened to 'My Luxury Night', which happened to be a pretty good ballad ^^.
  • 'Stoicism' was just insane XDDDD.
  • The encore... 'Nihon ni Umarete' is such a precious song, and Shiina plays the piano like a goddess... Oh my.
  • The crucified Ringo doll. It was pretty(ly) creepy! Was she wearing the 'Gekokujyo Xstasy' outfit? Cool... Maybe it meant that Gyakutai was dying... Who knows.

To sum up, I'll thank Ringo~Bingo once more and I'll say that I hope/wish that this talented girl will come back someday... Meanwhile we'll have to watch this DVD time after time! XD.
