substitution is by no means a replacement of the original – if you hate us, we love you –


Rock star Sugizo has finally come back releasing two new singles today, “FATIMA” and “DO-FUNK DANCE.”  The ex-Luna Sea member has done countless side projects and done a few gigs here in the states.

SUGIZO’s cosmic symphonic poetry is an “electro dance groove” born from craving and longing. This song depicts the words of FATIMA, the goddess who weaves all life together.

While it’s taken a while for him to come out with something, it’s been three years since he said he was going to release any solo works… and I love it.

Last December he did release “MESSIAH” and “TELL ME WHY YOU HIDE THE TRUTH?” but it was only available on iTunes download and ranked #1 and #2 on the Electronic ranking charts.

To be honest it’s really awesome rave music. It’s electronic and trance with awesome guitar skills. If you don’t know, this man has mad skills on the violin and guitar.

Listen to the new music of SUGIZO of 2010…

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.

Luna Sea’s front man a father!


Ex-Luna Sea front man,Kawamura Ryuichi became a father on June 18, 2009. The singer turned producer married 2002’s Miss Nippon Gran Prix, Kumi Sano. Last year Ryuichi played the role of Billy Flynn in Japan’s version of the Broadway musical, CHICAGO.

“He’s this tiny, light, and yet he’s also this extremely strong light, we’ve been blessed with a new life,” Ryuuichi commented to Sponichi news. “Even though this little light’s life has just begun, what kind of dreams will shine on him…? I feel like I want to secretly continue to watch over him.” (from shattered tranquility)

Congrates Ryuichi! Now Luna has a new playmate! May be just a few years late, but that’s OK! I’m sure she won’t mind! But what happened to you? You got fat! Look at that face! Just don’t turn into Shinya and you’ll be fine. I hope the very best for your family though. I really do, this is not a joke. It’s about time you pro-created, SUGIZO and Shinya are already way ahead of you! Wait, I’m not sure about Ino but I what I-know-of, J doesn’t have any kids either. Ino needs to pro-create if he hasn’t already thought. Seriously, we need more little Ino’s running around!
