I know some of you might have heard about... the incident.

In my mouth.

And you might be thinking, but Gakkun, aren't you a fantastic snowboarder? It was my understanding that snowboarding was your favourite sport, and that you were nearly Olympic in your skills!

This is true, dear friends. Indeed, snowboarding is a great passion of mine and indeed, I have some skills in that area.

You might, therefore, be wondering how I allowed such a grievous accident to occur.

I have a confession, closest friends and confidants. In fact, I was not snowboarding.

I was not in the snow at all.

My horrible disfigurement is the result, directly, of a Goldbergian series of events beginning with a flight of stairs and ending with a particularly hard and angular artpiece, and, indirectly, of the New Years celebratory tequila and my affinity for only ambient lighting.

The truth, as it were, is so much more embarrassing that I would actually prefer people attribute it to mere athletic failure.

I am shamed. And my cosmetic dentist is only just coming back from holiday. At this rate I shall have to attempt to bring the hijab into popular fashion.

Where to begin?

Of course, I'm very excited about my role in Nemuri Kyoshiro, but that isn't going to really premier until May. So mostly, only grunt work to look forward to for a while.

Still, I've so pleased to be getting so many roles as an actor. It's always been an interest of mine.

It's a little bizarre because so many representations of the character are so different. I suppose I'll have to develop my own take on it and use that.

And yes, everyone is extremely interested in me confirming my age. I don't really know why. Surely most people didn't believe I was really 469, and the year was something some people had already guessed.

I know what some of you are thinking: Oh, he has to let it out now because he's getting older.

It just came out because someone asked. Really. Before this, everyone liked the joke, so I let it stand.

Ha, I've been tired. Work, work, work as usual. How am I going to get everything done on time?

We played in the yard some. The problem is, no matter how long you play, he wants to play more! How can such a little dog have so much energy?! But, that's why he's called Eneru.

My brain feels rotten today. Oxygen-deprived. That's what I get for being badly-behaved yesterday, though. Have you ever felt in such a strange mood, and ended up drinking and chain-smoking yourself to sleep? I don't get hangovers per se, but it distorts my sense of time and reality.

For instance, it's this late in the day already, and I haven't showered. Yuck~ I'm supposed to meet someone in an hour or so, too.

I keep drinking iced tea in the hopes that it might help, but... I think when I leave the house, I will have to get something with espresso in it.

Hopefully, everyone else is feeling much better~~

Don't smoke! It's bad for you!

What does this Rorschach blot look like to you?

That's clearly the Moon symbol. ;)

I return~~

VisuaLives all over with, and a pleasant pseudo-vacation to Barcelona for the calendar shoot. I got some of you presents~~ I'm afraid I didn't bring back any Spanish girls, though. They were mostly too large to fit into my suitcase.

Of course, it's right back to work.

The heat makes everyone so useless, though. When I start calling to get everyone together to plan, it seems like I'm asking them to drive across a desert. "Aaaaah, Gackt-san, I thought we already set the schedule." or "We can't get to work without [other staff member]-san and he can't be back until next week..."

But really, it's just because they don't want to leave their houses.

You can't let the heat and humidity turn your home into your prison! Like prostitutes addicted to heroin, you let your life slip away because escaping your captors would make you uncomfortable...

Hmph. This is why everyone thinks I'm so mean.

It's definitely hot, though.

I want to go swimming~~

I wish I had one of those indoor pools with the current for you to swim against. I'm jealous because Ene keeps hopping into the fountain.

Maybe no one would notice if I did the same thing.

Anyway, keep cool!

A meme, including such fascinating details of my personal life as what shampoo I use and what foods I really dislike.

It's been a while since I said anything, here.

I know some new people now. Hello!

I might have already complained about this to some of you, so I apologize for saying it twice, but the live in Korea has been canceled. Apparently, not everyone can be counted on to fund an artist when they've promised to, and the cost of bringing everything over and setting it up and putting it on is too high to front ourselves. Now, there are going to be a lot of fans who are angry at me for going back on my word.

But it isn't my fault! I'm really frustrated.

This is why I have a producer who understands business. If it were up to me, I would fly over there, march up to the offending offices and teach them a few ethics.

With my fist.

And from what I've been assured, that would not ultimately help me reach my goal. I think, though, that it would be immensely satisfying.

Saa, in the absence of an opportunity to justifiably kick back-pedaling ass, I want to do something relaxing. After all, my tour is apparently over. Don't make me sit alone and drink pathetically!

[Music |Peggy Lee - Hey Big Spender]

Still lots of recording and other extremely official business. I get to 'oversee' the final touches on the production of nine*nine, but in reality that simply means I get to ask them to change trivial things, which they may or may not decide to do.

This has been an excellent excuse to hang out with Sakura, just like old times. Well, not quite. As it would turn out, we're beginning to get old and can't spend all night out on the town like once we could. Tragic.

So I'm slightly under the weather. Something like a cold, only more sly, creeping up slowly so I would think they were allergies, then quite suddenly I am awoken with the kind of sinus pressure that makes crushing ones own cheekbone seem like a marvelous idea.

It would be too sad to risk my face to test if this were true, though, so I suppose I will take medicine and simply go to bed.

Rock stars shouldn't have to go to bed at seven-thirty.

It's a life expectancy calculator. As the questions came up, it guessed my "virtual age" was younger and younger (I exercise frequently and am 'athletic' in build), but then a few of the questions sent me back up... and beyond. It also guesses I'll only live to be 72, which is not at all long enough to do everything I'd like.

How depressing.

13,469 days and counting...

If you have anything you need to say to me...


Tour Dates & Other Official Things [Aug. 4th, 2008|03:17 pm]

[Mood |thirstythirsty]

Gackpoids are out. Have a look. :)

52 tour dates for R&RII are confirmed. I wanted more, but people are beginning to be reluctant to schedule them, and to make allusions to the possibility of me dying before the shows are completed, which would of course mean a lot of wasted money planning those that do not occur.

It seems that my untimely death on stage, in front of hundreds of fans and cameras and everything, would generate enough drama and revenue to make up for any shows I failed to complete afterward, though.

Tour Dates & LocationsCollapse )

Staggering to look at, aren't they? I'm not intimidated, though. In fact, I'm a little irritated by the way the staff's smiles begin to look so stretched when I talk about how I would like these shows to look.

I've never told them to do anything they are unable to do yet. All I'm asking is for them to step out of their comfort zones, which should be a given as it is absolutely necessary for a good show.

Oh, and I'll also be in Jouetsu on August 23 for the Kenshin Festival in full regalia, so please come and see the procession there. Kenshin is an amazing historical figure in his own right, and I'm extremely proud to be representing him as I feel we have much in common.
