I'm sorry, but I think I've had my fill of your dramatic behavior. And I especially dislike how you call people names for a situation that does not concern you. Calling [livejournal.com profile] uranus_sama a "Cunt-faced crack whore" is very childish and VERY high school, and bringing such TASTELESS name calling of her mother is also high school, or lower: junior high school. And not attempting to explain why you're jumping into business that doesn't concern you and thus making more blown out of proportion than necessary is intelligent:

It makes you look silly and thickheaded.

I do think that you're a nice girl and such, but your behavior is getting a bit out of hand for my tastes, so I am unfriending you. I'd rather not deal with someone who is being childish.

Thanks for the icon though. It came in handy afterall.

Maybe if people did a bit of research, they can find all the information they need to prove that the uniform was made in the image of the SS uniforms worn by soldiers in Germany at the time of World War 2.

This blog is from the company that actually allowed Gackt to use their SS costumes for his tour. They clearly state that it is indeed a replica of the original SS uniform.
A small, summarization of the blog here, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] gackt_army

A Brief History to the Uniform
credit to [livejournal.com profile] karadin for her informative post

The SS was formed as the personal bodyguard of Adolph Hitler, and expanded after his rise to power to spread into the regular German Army.

In 1932, Heinrich Himmler introduced the all-black SS uniform, which was designed by SS-Oberführer Prof. Dr. Lars Bonne Rasmussen and graphic designer Walter Heck.

While many uniforms were designed throughout the years for the SS, the all black uniform is the most well known, being designed to project authority and respect. (and subsequently, fear) The Black white red color scheme was shared by the Nazi Party,

In 1938 pale-grey uniforms began to replace the black in Germany, this was to help in blending the SS into the regular army, The original black uniform was rarely worn in Germany due to the fact that to the populace, black signified army shirkers and political-party bullies.



Overall, this uniform used in the tour is neither a SS uniform or Russian uniform. It is a costume, first and foremost. It is a tool to help tell a story. It is made in the image of the SS uniform worn by soldiers in World War 2 Germany in order to help people visualize, comprehend, and understand the true meaning of his tour:

War and people dying is a sad, terrible thing, no matter which side you are fighting on.


Would you expect Gackt to continue on with his story in a kitty suit? Yeah...didn't think so.

I decided to use Adium for my many accounts. It's like trillian, but for use on the mac, and prolly there is a version for PCs? I'm not sure, but so far, I'm loving it!

Please take a look at my best friend's site and consider donating for her marathon. Her brother was diagnosed with cancer and lymphoma about four years ago, so she is helping to raise money for awareness and to support her brother, who survived.

even if you can't donate, please leave a kind message if you can!

You know what I realized?

I don't really care much about seeing footage of what happened on September 11, 2001.

Because I was there, in New York.

I was in high school, during 4th period math class, senior year.

I remember walking home that day with a friend because I was too afraid to take the bus home.

I remember the sky getting so cloudy, in QUEENS, because of the dust. We lived only a river away from Manhattan.

We didn't even get to go home early. They kept us in school for a normal school day. But we definitely had no school the day after, and optional school after that off day. A lot of students didn't go to school for two days. I went back.

I don't care much for conspiracy theories either.

I don't even like talking about it, so when parents ask me, I give short answers.

What happened that day was tragic, and of course we should remember it, but I'd rather just...work today. (Although now it's friday in Japan)

On a weird note, my boss' daughter had a birthday yesterday, September 11th. She's...a brat but cute.

After both groovy_walls and I made post on this issue, we decided it was time to combine forces and make a much longer, far more rambling post. XD


This is what we'll be posting to some of the comms:

The Dears Fanclub. Why are the overseas fans excluded?
-By [info][livejournal.com profile] shinimegami21 and [profile] groovy_walls


Recently, it seems one issue has begun to surface on a frequent basis. The matter of Gackt spreading his activities outside of Japan, namely his fan club opening to the international community. This has started to become a major issue, not only on the LiveJournal communities, but also on many of the smaller forums and websites.

Petition after petition have been made and sent, and the growing theme among fan-mail has become an outcry for Dears to go international. Still, Dears remains a Japanese address only fan club. This fact has started to generate hurt feelings from international fans AND a fair amount of bitterness and accusations of racism regarding Gackt.

But there are real viable reasons why Dears is not international, and why this is (if you must find fault) not the fault of the artist.

In regards to this matter, we, shinimegami21 and groovy_walls, have written an article on the matter. We do not direct this post at any one user, nor do we intend to bruise anyone's feelings over the matter. We simply hope to give explanation to the matter and perhaps eliminate some hurt feelings.

shinimegami21 is a Dears member who lives and teaches English in Japan. She will give us some insight not only into Dears itself, but also the logistic issues behind making ANY website or group available to a multilingual fan base.

groovy_walls is a business manager, and drawing on her experience in these matters, will outline why an international Dears is, in the end, not a matter of Gackt love for his fans, but one Dears Co.'s profit margin.

So please take a few minutes of your time to bear with us and read on.


In response to petitions to make DEARS international )

There are premium tickets for members. You can only get 1 ticket and I think it's by a lottery/entry. Not so sure. Cost: 30,000 yen

There are regular tickets. Members can buy up to 4 tickets, excluding the one in Misato Prefecture. Cost: 7,000 yen

All the letters in the table correspond to numbers to call within the country. I will provide those numbers at a later time.

Why do people continue to make petitions about making DEARS open for international fans? Why can’t they understand that it takes time, money, effort, and the right connections to so such a move?
 
I’m sure there are other things to consider about this, but I can’t think f them. And comparing to other bands is just silly, because their situations must be COMPLETELY different if they have an international fanclub and he doesn’t. He knows what he needs to do, so we shouldn’t worry too much. He may not have said anything about making an international fanclub probably because he doesn’t want to get our hopes up.
 
Besides, he may even surprise us during his birthday! I wanna see what the prankster has in store!
 
And...why do some people continue to say he doesn’t care about his international fans? *blink* I thought that idiodic ideology got crushed. How can one think that and still trek around Gackt related comms and consider themselves a fan? If I found out that my favorite idol didn’t give a shit about international fans, WITH proof, I would stop being a fan and sell all my goods and spread the ‘good word’ about how much of a prick/bitch they are.
 
Not trying to cause TOO much controversy, but I am really curious as to why people continue to think like this. I have nothing against making an international fanclub, hell, I WANT that to happen, but even I know that I shouldn’t hold my breath. And even as a DEAR, the perks of being a fan are dwindling. Meh. It’ll happen. Just like that new CD. LOL

(damn i wish Krysi was here XD)
