Gackt's new album comes out June 12th.... ::cough::

Anyway.... I want to do a little survey/thing/whatever....

1) How many people have heard any J-Music?

2) If yes, how much of it WASN'T from an anime?

3) If you haven't heard J-Music, would you be interested in hearing some?

4) If yes, what genre would you like to hear?

5) Do guys in drag and lots of makeup (who may or may not look Gothic) disgust you, facinate you, or you don't care what they wear as long as their music sounds good?

6) Straight girls, gay/bi guys, and straight guys comfortable with their sexuality: Does [url=http://jikannohizumi.hypermart.net/pics/gackt3.jpg]this[/url] look sexy?

7) Straight guys, gay/bi women, and women comfortable in their sexuality: Does [url=http://jikannohizumi.hypermart.net/pics/fb-maya6.jpg]this[/url] look sexy?

8) If you listened to J-Music, what groups/singers did you enjoy the most?

9) Does Japanese culture/music intrest you in the least?

10) If no, why not?


--- One of my goals is to try to extend Japanese culture and music into the American scene so that possibly some Japanese music will be played on American radio like the Japanese play American music on their radio. Also it's to break barriers put up in American culture. Japanese Music has become mor eand more popular over the last year... With Duel Jewel (Japanese indie rock band) playing at A-Kon this year (A-Kon in an anime convention in Dallas Texas, late May), more barriers were broken. We've had some J-Music stars play in the states, but mainly for the Asian/Japanese population in such cities (like New York and Southern California where Japanese and Asian populations are very high) Please fill out this survey with your best knowledge and truthful-ness. Thank you very much :)

[b]1) How many people have heard any J-Music?[/b]

*raises hand* Me.

[b]2) If yes, how much of it WASN'T from an anime?[/b]

Heh heh, more than half my Winamp playlist is now dominated by J-Music...

:whoops:

[b]5) Do guys in drag and lots of makeup (who may or may not look Gothic) disgust you, facinate you, or you don't care what they wear as long as their music sounds good?[/b]

Heh heh, I dunno, really... I guess it's cool an' all.

[b]7) Straight guys, gay/bi women, and women comfortable in their sexuality: Does [url=http://jikannohizumi.hypermart.net/pics/fb-maya6.jpg]this[/url] look sexy?[/b]

*grins* Yes, very.

[b]8) If you listened to J-Music, what groups/singers did you enjoy the most?[/b]

L'Arc~en~Ciel, Two-Mix, Ayumi Hamasaki...

[/B][/QUOTE]

You have all sorts of choices.... every genre America has Japan has..... that does include country music, regae, and salsa/spanish influenced music as well.

I was thinking of maybe putting up my top 20 j-music songs on my site.... but I don't know who would actually download them. I'd like more responces to this post before I do.

[b]1) How many people have heard any J-Music?[/b]
:wave: I have! Thanks to you Transtic :) ..::[b]BIG HUG[/b]::..

[b]2) If yes, how much of it WASN'T from an anime?[/b]
All of it . . . unless it was featured in an anime and I don't know about it. But I don't think that's fact.


[b]4) If yes, what genre would you like to hear?[/b]
Being that my experience with J-Music is not much, I'm going to answer this one anyway. I'd like to hear some more J-Punk and stuff similar to Gackt

[b]5) Do guys in drag and lots of makeup (who may or may not look Gothic) disgust you, facinate you, or you don't care what they wear as long as their music sounds good?[/b]
I'm assuming the person in your avatar is a guy... but I still can't help but be fascinated by it, lol. But they don't have to look good in order for me to like their music. I mean, Davey Havok of AFI is bi so obviously he's not laways going to wear the "straightest" looking clothes, but one can't help but marvel at times....

[b]6) Straight girls, gay/bi guys, and straight guys comfortable with their sexuality: Does [url=http://jikannohizumi.hypermart.net/pics/gackt3.jpg]this[/url] look sexy?[/b]
Not as much as the attached picture.. though it's the same person ;)

[b]7) Straight guys, gay/bi women, and women comfortable in their sexuality: Does [url=http://jikannohizumi.hypermart.net/pics/fb-maya6.jpg]this[/url] look sexy?[/b]
. . . You're exploiting my weakness for asian women aren't you?

[b]8) If you listened to J-Music, what groups/singers did you enjoy the most?[/b]
Teengenerate and Gackt

[b]9) Does Japanese culture/music intrest you in the least?[/b]
Yes!!! OH GAWD YES!!! . . . . :shifty:


As for your Top 20 favorite J-songs, post 'em! I'll try to download them if I can find them in a decent enough size for my slow computer to download. :)[/color]

Well technically only in Japan. His stuff is only released in japan and in Asian countries (somewhere like a week after it's Japanese release)... like Taiwan, China, and Korea.... It's never released anywhere else. But you can buy the japanese version online and have it shipped anywhere.

I'll get to putting up my top 20 sometime soon. I've been very busy as of late and haven't had much time to do anything.

And J-Music is Japanese Music.

[b]sure, whatever..[/b]

[color=deeppink]I am reminded of how much I seem to be missing out on what TN (and the rest of you) say to be great music. Hopefully once I move out to California my computer will work and I'll be able to download some music. Until then...it's hopeless V_V

Ahh, and that picture is indeed sexy, I must say ;)[/color]

[color=indigo]1) I have, but only because a few people on the boards disscussed it so frequently. Striving to eventually become a musician, I felt that it was my duty to at least check out some of the J-music on the boads.

2) The only J-music I have from anime is Cowboy Bebop which is J-Bebop I guess...(great soundtracks though)

3) I wouldn't mind hearing some more of there rock based genre, a few of the bands bordered on more of an Indie-Punk rock, but a lot of what I heard was more electronica based

4) They shock me the way Kiss or Alice Cooper shocked me, I don't find it disgusting or bizarre, just "shock rock" i guess.

5) Alright, I guess....different strokes for different folks

6) Not attrcted to her and for some reason I have the feeling I could qoute an old Aerosmith song

7) I like the band Buffalo Daughter(kinda Indie...I think a lot of you guys would like this band) and the other one that stood out was Lolita #18

8) Incredibly so, I am much more interested in Japanese culture then anime[/color]

Me

[b]2) If yes, how much of it WASN'T from an anime? [/b]

I've only heard ONE song that wasn't anime.... it was a Japanese punk song. Wasn't that great, but that was just that one band. A lot of punk music sounds the same anyway, not their fault.

[b]3) If you haven't heard J-Music, would you be interested in hearing some? [/b]

heck yeah! I love hearing new/better music; I'm always on the search.

[b]4) If yes, what genre would you like to hear?[/b]

Um.... well, if it's techno/dance it's got to be full-out and complex: a real work of art you can really feel and dance to. If it's punk/ska it's got to be original, that's that standard I have for any punk music anyway. I'm not into metal at the moment, but I'm certainly open to it as long as it's not too heavy and ... trashy sounding. Let's see...... um, ... any alternative rock that's not too generic *cough*HoobastankwhosoundjustlikeIncubus*cough*, and I'm not into J-pop b/c I'm not into a lot of pop anyway, though I must say I [i]do[/i] like a lot of anime theme songs. Sooo, if a tv show theme song can sound that good, I guess actual J-pop can't be that bad at all. I'm open to it. Not really into rap nor country, and I'm open to any Japanese classical music; I'm sure it sounds beautiful. :)

[b]5) Do guys in drag and lots of makeup (who may or may not look Gothic) disgust you, facinate you, or you don't care what they wear as long as their music sounds good?[/b]

don't really care

[b]6) Straight girls, gay/bi guys, and straight guys comfortable with their sexuality: Does this look sexy? [/b]

not in my opinion
