So Sugizo has a new name?

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/arts/music/hard-rocking-x-japan-tries-to-crack-north-american-market/article1745648/

Put your mouse arrow over the picture and read the names.


YES! It DOES say Gackt Sugizo. XDD

Is there something you need to tell us, Sugizo?

of course it's just a name fail, but let's poke some fun.

GACKT 2010 Digital Photo Frame

The full specs are here This post is for the extra details since I now possess it. There are three small postcards that you get with the package.

-The frame itself comes loaded with 16 images which seem quite big. I'm not sure if I can transfer/copy them to a computer yet for your own self You can copy the images to your computer! I guess I will share those later. It says you can copy the files on the memory card and/or USB memory TO the frame, but not the other way around. You can erase the contents of the internal memory in the frame but not the files on the memory card and/or USB memory.

WARNING: You CANNOT open the files of the SD card on your computer. If you do, your computer will freeze! So don't open it! *finished reading the back of the contents guide*

It's quite confusing actually. Just...don't delete what came with the frame! Keep it simple.

Also, the current memory in the frame is 102 MB after the pictures have been placed into the internal memory. The 3D panorama slideshows (8 in all) are on the SD card. The memory on the SD card currently is 636.2 MB. Not that much. Hmmm...I can always just buy another SD card too!

-You can change the language! Ironically, the initial controls (selecting 'photos', 'video' etc) are in English, but the settings area is in Japanese. It also comes with a remote control and a cloth to clean the screen. There is a cord to connect the frame to the computer. The manual says that you should properly eject the frame from the computer, since it will show up just like a regular external hardware device.

Available languages:
English
Japanese
German
French
Spanish
Portugal
Italian
Dutch

-When connecting the frame to the computer, you cannot use the remote control. The frame comes up at 'NO NAME' but I think if you rename the frame, you may reformat it. I haven't tried, but I don't wanna find out the hard way! The drive with the 3D images should not be opened, as stated earlier. It seems you can't do anything to the frame while it is plugged into the computer. The manual says you can, but I'm still new to it.

At the moment, I'm a bit tired and running on empty. >.>; If anyone has any questions, then feel free to leave them as comments! I think this overview is lacking, but that may be entirely due to my tiredness.

[2] Okay, I'm not good with counting in Japanese. Is this the correct amount of zeros? XD I think I need like...one more? I have no clue.
[3] I think they mean reader/adapter. I never heard of such a memory stick, so I'm not sure.


So yes, I think an SD card comes included with the digital frame, so you don't have to go out and buy the necessary equipment.
For this price, I would hope so! D:

Hey...It's not a Russion uniform, people!

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.

Why Petitions May Do Very Little

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 )
