Chris Fehn Unmasked

If we talk about Chris Fehn, we all know that he is called the most handsome and the most wholesome member of the Slipknot by Rolling Stone. That is only in the past or he is still handsome till now? After we watched video, “Inside the Nine”, You may think that he got so fat. I am curious if he can wear that leather mask without feeling pain. It seems too fit though.

He took out the mask in the field. If you want to see his unmasked face, you can simply bid him in the charity golf stuff. This guy seems so clean actually. Cleaner than what you see in the Google search. If you get his unmasked photo, it will be polite if you do not share it directly and publicly.

My friend on Deviantart said that “Keep cats away from Chris Fehn at all times.” as you can seen in http://sw-eden.deviantart.com/art/Chris-Fehn-plays-golf-102301758

Hideto Matsumoto wash her feet with cat’s blood.

Chris Fehn Unmasked with the Pink Hair Girl. Seem like I team up the Kill Cat Team! : )

I love that naked Hideto Matsumoto. : )
She is just pretty! Right then in the drawing, Hideto Matsumoto is the girlfriend of Chris Fehn. Aka the wise man in the Christmas day.

The drawing above is my drawing when I was young. It is not exactly like Chris Fehn though, but I tried to draw him. And again, the wife is Hideto Matsumoto. I cannot remember when is the beginning of the time, I called Hideto Matsumoto as the girl.

After you look at Unmasked Chris Fehn. I drew another unmask of Slipknot member, “Sic Wilson” or “DJ StarScream”.

Tusk ice-cream Hideto Matsumoto ฮิเดะ

This is a short story which I had had show some X Japan’s fans, especially in Thailand. Half of them like my work, but another half do not like me. Most people who do not like me are men. I do not know why. Some X Japan fans in Thailand are not so friendly to me. I found I failed to promote Zi:Kill in their group, but now i do not care about that stuff. Zi:Kill and X Japan are super different!! I should head on Punk fans rather than stuff like that. If people know me, they know Zi:Kill for sure. I speed myself up on my Myspace. Myspace become the excellent website for now with many cool services.

Hide kissed Ran (Twinzer)

This is an old issue, that me and my friends did talk about 2 years ago in an X-Japan webboard. Someone said that this is xoxoxo sexy. Hide is actually sexy.

Clip from 50% 50% show of Hideto Matsumoto in her early-age solo work, may called Psychommunity

Most of people in webboard were curious that who Hide’s partner on the stage was. He is Toshiya Matsukawa or Ran. I had seen his second hand CD, but I didnt take it.
Read more of his detail here http://www.metal-archives.com/band.php?id=121796

In fact, there is another page, which describe about this person so well. The admin is a Deviantart user. You can search for it. Sw Eden will not do research about this person. If you will him, you can do it. Right now, you know all keywords.

Easter Day Video – Ken Zi:Kill

Alright Blue!!
Ken Zi:Kill is one of the best guitarist in the world, and he is also the influence for other guitarist. He had been the adviser for some senior. Almost Zi:Kill fans will love Tusk and follow Zi:Kill member at a band called, “Craze”; but I prefer Ken better. I realize that I do love Zi:Kill’s music, because Ken composed and arranged it. The right style for me should be Ken. I try to collect his solo albums. I put some important songs on Imeem (click to listen), because Imeem is a legal place, and I would like to see people love him as I do, too. A lovely friend on Flickr told me that she loved everyone, because other people like to say the name of only one member. Oh dear, you make me smile.

Why is this Easter Day of Spring 2009?
It is the day I made it. I made it for this day. Easter is really about re-born or all things. Firstly, Jesus Christ’s resurrection; secondly, the blossom; thirdly, it is about the day that bright time and dark time have the same length, so say hello to the sun. All are bright in this day! It is Spring time. I would like to see Ken and his Zi:Kill to be just like this. I want to hear their new music, I want to see their re-union, but now, I just listen to their similar bands. I mean, American alternative rock/ punk, my most favorite genre ever. Zi:Kill is punk, too. In their time, they did not promote themselves that much. All dressed with black suit,.., oh, seems like they have their own perfect world that other people want to get into, and Hide (Hideto Matsumoto) did that. All girls in the world would be so jealous. Hide, you just touched and kissed their charming guy. Hide, you were just a guitarist that the professional (all music professors I know) could not indicate that you or Yoshiki lost the rhythms. Some said that Yoshiki lost his drums rhythm, and some said that Hide lost solo rhythms. Hide, you were with that best guitarist in the world. Right then, no girls would be jealous you, but me. Hide, you loved it as your heart, and I read a lot of Japanese says, although they were from Google translate. Hide, I know you listened to their music, and “Lucky Man” in the solo album of Ken. The right word for Hide, you are the Best Artist Wannabe. You just tried to be Salvador Dali. Or, you just want to be Ms. Hyde to be with your best band. My best band, too. All people’s lives will keep going, but not you for now.

Thai Sluts /Whore : Why do they fuck?

Three reasons for Thai prostitutes to have sex with the guys.
1. They are so poor, and they and their families need to eat.
2. The gangsters force them to do.
3. The teenagers like to waste money so fast, so they want to make money so fast, too.

1. They are so poor, and they and their families need to eat.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The poor women who cannot find any other jobs also need to eat, and their families need to eat, too. This problems can have everywhere in the world, not only in Thailand. A friend of my friend had to prostitute herself because her mother got cancer. She was just a college student and she had no money. Her father did not be with her anymore. (I can say that most of Thai guys are not different from other countries, they like to have second wife. Thailand does not have a law as in USA that the ex-husband has to pay for his ex-wife.) Lastly she got HIV. I am so sorry for her, a nice daughter. I did talk with my friends about her. If anyone is in this situation, he/she should as other people for help rather than just hurting oneself. The mass media always love to help everyone. If there is really no way to do other things, they said that she should have let her mother died, because her mother would be so sad to see her daughter got HIV or being slut.

One of Thai Christian pedagogues I know went down into a brothel. He asked a slut why that have to work right here, and she answered that she was poor. These women do not have opportunity to meet nice people or high-class people. Most of them actually use many rude words. Some are nice to talk with, too. My music teacher had worked on coping illegal albums in Patpong, and he has a lot of slut friends. After that he just did something so opposite, that is he became a music teacher in Catholic school, and I was his student. In fact, Patpong is just one block away from that school. The afternoon and the evening are so different. We can walk as the students or businessmen in the afternoon, and if we are good enough, we have to escape at night. 😀

2. The gangsters force them to do.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Unbelievable, Thailand still has a lot of Gangsters (abducting) as well as Japan has a lot of Yakuza gangs. Many times, they abduct Thai girls into the vans and sell them to other countries around Thailand. This also reflect in some Thai country music. Mike Piromporn sang that The evil yakusa drunken his girlfriend and force her to prostitute for their money.

All are just like in the movie that the police cannot disturb some big gangsters. All movies were token based on the reality. That is where the idea comes from. The gangsters do not catch the girls only for being sluts, but they also kidnap the children and cut out their arms and legs, and push them to be beggar. They dropped these poor kids on the street in the morning, and took them back at night. They can make a lot of money from this hell business.

Another way to force a girl to prostitute herself is taking the video of first-time raping, and then threaten her to continue next videos. Most of the girls are shy and scared to tell the police. Or they get detained in the windowless rooms. They may make the girls to be drug addict, and those girls have to do whatever for the drug.

3. The teenagers like to waste money so fast, so they want to make money so fast, too.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The last reason is for the happy teenagers who love to be whores, because they waste money very fast. At Siam Center, Bangkok, many teenagers decorate their old shirts and trousers to sell to other teenagers on the street. When they get the money, they just walk into the stores and get the new things. Some teenagers think that this way to get the money is very slow. The prize of a shirt is just 100 bahts. If they were whores, they could earn 1,000 baht an hour.

Some parents do not care, and most parents do not know. This down-hell economy, all people get less money. The teenagers cannot live only with the food, but they want a luxurious life with brand-name goods, and some want to decorate their boyfriends’ motorcycle. If you walk on the street at night in Bangkok (some areas), you will see groups of girls waiting for their customers. Almost are pretty, as you know, almost Thai girls are so pretty. For example, comparing between New York subway and Thai subway, in the same capacity of subway car, Thailand has more beautiful girl than New York.

Many foreigners got confused between bad girls and good girls in Thailand. Some of them think that all women in Thailand are sluts. The middle class people do not teach their children to be sluts. They are all educated, and they have good places to work. Most of them work in office, and some own the business. The past government did some mistake about promoting Thailand. Thai government usually promotes the adventures in Thailand. The visitors always love to do journal into the ocean, do the hiking, float the boat in a dangerous water fall, camping and dancing around bonfire. Wow! I love that, too. One of those people in the past, did promote prostitution in Thailand, and after that Thailand is so well-known about this worst thing.

Sw Eden’s hand Drawing in Subway : Hideto Matsumoto (Hide)

Online whores still exist. The information they give online are the nick-name, height, weight, personal identity, ethnic, photo, body-shape, age, level of education, and they do not tell exactly where they study, but they say the location of their school; so people can guess very easy. Almost sweet, cute and love to dress up. I bet they are cuter than Japanese porn-star. They are much much cuter and younger than those Thai women you search via search engine. The prize is about 2,000-5,000 bahts, which is different from those on the street with the prize 500-1,000 bahts. I am not their supporter, and I do not want Thailand to be just like this. If half of teenagers did porn, how Thailand can grow up to be developed country. I love my country. I will talk about the part of bad boys later.

They said Thai artists mimicked Japanese

Many Thai J-Rock fans blamed Thai artists that they copied Japanese songs. In fact, they should believe in ability of Thai people, or say just, coincident or Japanese artists copy Thai things. Although one case is true, that does not mean other million cases have to be just like the first one.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Listen To the Music, please scroll down to the end of the post.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

One of my friend that I met when I just had been a J-Rock fan, always told me that a Thai band called, Giwa copies his beloved Luna Sea. I was so young, and I did believe him. I believe many things flood around world wide web. Thai J-Rock fans keep post this kind of thing up. They matched short parts of some Japanese songs and Thai songs, and they said that Thai artist copies Japanese artists. Most of the parts they matched are less than 10 seconds, and it is very easy that musicians can think about the same thing. It is coincident rather that coping.

Thai people are not stupid, because they can own many copyrights they make by themselves. Thai people can work so well if a reward/award is waiting for them, such as world robot competition, or sport tournament. Naturally, Thai people do not like to step up without motivation. Thai musicians have a lot of motivation, especially pop-rock artists after 2000. Pop-Rock in Thailand have been popular again after 20-30 years. Between 2 eras, Thai people consumed much of sweet-pop songs. Many bands was founded in late 10 years, and many old bands did re-union. The boys want to be cool, especially for the sight of girls. They created a unique style of Thai Pop-Rock. Many songs may sound similar, because those kids grew up with pop songs. Some people are different, because they listen to other things, such as Thai country songs and other foreigners’ things.

I am the one who really like Thai country songs. If we do not count the style of voice and Thai instrument, many fast songs can be popular in Alternative-Rock/Pop world. Both sound very similar. Many Thai people also listen to Rock n’ Roll artist from the United States and Europe. They get the influence directly from the original rock bands, and they do not need to past J-Rock artist. Some Thai people also listen to J-Rock and do cover, but there is less percent.

Clash is another band that Thai J-Rock fans blames that they mimic “Forever Love” of X Japan in their song called, “Nangfa Naijai” (Angle in Mind). I do know both songs so well, and I cannot find that Clash really copies that songs. They are same type of music, but not the same song. Although Clash did cover of L’Arc~en~Ciel, it does not mean that they do not have brain to compose their own music. I am a Punk fan, and many Punk songs are similar. Let’s listen to sample of DecayDance things. They are similar and they are good!

Heath of X Japan, Rough Drawing by Sw Eden

Another important conflict is the song call, “Ter Mai Kir Tai” (You Have Never Died) of a Thai band called, Two (they have 2 members.). My parent keeps that albums, too. The famous guy named, Tong. He helped around many projects. Thai people know that he is really nice. Right now he is older, but he just looks the same. I do not know if this nice guy hears what some people are railing him. I pass around the websites, many Thai X Japan fans railed “Two”. Unbelievable, I saw a guy wrote, “Two-Kuy”. “Kuy” (ควย) is the rudest word in Thai Language. He blamed Thai artists who did not know what X Japan was about. The company always manages things for pop artists, and the only thing that the pop artists need to have is the great performance.

I did look through the track list of that album of “Two”, and style of X Japan songs. (It is 2 years, I was their fan, my early high school.) The melody is weird for Japanese songs, but the song composer is weird in “Two” albums. I could not say, but the news already said that. They said, Thai company has to pay for Yoshiki. I do not want to believe. It is just the late visits of Yoshiki in Thailand. So,… My early high school time, a senior guy who was a friend of “Yai” (Yai was known as a big fan of X Japan in our school.) told me about this conflict. “Two did release “Ter Mai Kir Tai” before X Japan release Say Anything”. If I can go back to that moment, I will never show the goat hand to him. I did,.., I did that hand. He ran behind me and tried to kill me. Where was my soul of Thai person? I had had it when I was a boy scout. I did respect King Rama VI. I love his firmly goal to make Thai people to love each other as one big family.

The news was unbelievable for many people. That song sound quite like Thai songs, and the lyrics can fit in so well. No matter what the reality is, but if there is no that song, many Thai people will never be fans of X Japan.

There is another conflict of Neo Universe of L’Arc en Ciel, but that is a little thing. I think it is coincident, because it is just a small part of the song. Most of Thai L’Arc en Ciel fans are still young and rich, and they do not really care to talk about the past, because they look up the new stuff, and they talked a lot. I have many friends who like this band, that is why I can say. Like, once I met Kaun with her L’Arc book in a school bus, and we just began to talk although we had never known each other. We talked a lot. It is familiar in American people, but unusual for Thai people. (I am smiling.)

The main thing I would like to say is, Thai people always look down themselves. Many foreign songs were composed after Thai songs. Whenever they sounds the same, Thai people will say that Thai copied those foreigners.

There are other cases, such as Peace Maker’s songs and Josh Groban’s, and also the hair style and dress style of Thai teenager. Although the idea cannot be Copyrights, people keeps railing that style of dressing is wrong things. This may be only one attitude in a corner of Thailand, because most people do not care (me, too). They dress up and they want to be cool.

Let’s see the side of Thailand. What the songs that Thai artists composed before the foreigner and they sound the same! I am an audience and also an artist, and I will never say that they mimic each other. Many people can think about the same thing. The one part of melody or similar style cannot prove that that artist is the copier.

Listen to these coincident couple now!!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

* Paradox (Thai Band) – “Ta-Lai” (Slip)
The beginning of this song is similar with Cobra Starship – Pop Punk is so hi’ 05
This Paradox song is in album “Free Style” and was released before Pop Punk is so hi’05 about 2 years.

Both Paradox and Cobra Starship are Punk, so no confused that they can think about the same thing.

* Zi:Kill (Japanese Punk Band) – Kiss Me Good Bye
The All American Rejects – The Wind Blows
The beginning of both songs just sound the same, and I do not think that The All American Rejects will care about Zi:Kill. Alright, both are punk, .. again.

* Paradox (Thai band) – Greedy (similar at 2:30)
Slipknot – The Nameless (similar at 3:00)
For the international world, Slipknot is more popular than Paradox, but in Thailand, Paradox is more popular. I do not think that both will prefer to listen to each other. Paradox also released this song before Slipknot, too.

* Zi:Kill – Lonely (intro)
Avenged Sevenfold – Dancing Dead (outro at 4:27)

First time A7X came into the music industrial, they were considered as a metal band, but now, they are considered as a punk band. Every Japanese fan of Zi:Kill know that Zi:Kill is punk. And very important for us to know that both Zi:Kill and Avenged Sevenfold have a super cool guitar solo. Zi:Kill may do not that great in Lonely, but all stuff in their Rocket album are so amazing! (Pick up the songs that Ken did the music)

http://www.imeem.com/gamink/music/o8h0emR9/ (at the first verse of this song)

Ui Kam may be older than We Are The World. I feel I heard of it since I was born. It is truly classic one, every Thai people know. It is beautiful and lonely. Jaran Manoped is also a great teacher of many Thai people. We all love him. He passed away in 2001. All his songs are forever songs.

The All American Rejects – Night Drive (intro)
Hideto Matsumoto (Hide) – Emotion In Motion (intro)

Most of my matching went to the bands that I can remember their things so well. It is not a lot of bands that I can remember every part of their songs.

Paradox (Thai Band) – Balloon (at first verse)
Hideto Matsumoto (Hide) – Rocket Drive (at first verse)

Paradox is so great at their show. Almost all songs of Paradox sound more modern than Hide’s. Paradox tend to be Alternative Rock, which is really popular in Western world such the United States and the United Kingdom. Hide is more into underground alternative rock, which can be found in both LA and NY. Although Hide did a lot of underground style, those songs are not popular. Hide’s songs which are popular are something modern; such as In Motion, Tell Me, Lemoned I Scream, Ever Free, Post and Honey Blade.

ปู พงษ์สิทธิ์ คำภีร์ – โรงเรียนของหนู “Poo” Pongsit Kampee – Rong Rean Kong Nu (Our School)
The Academy is… – After the Last Midtown Show

Rong Rean Kong Nu is so classic, too. This song is very old, but still catching people’s hearts. If you know Thai language, you will cry since the first time you listen to it. It is strange that The Academy is… has the same stuff. The world is so coincident. I played Rong Rean Kong Nu on Harmonica, too. This song is about children who have a hard time to get to school. They lived on the mountain and their school is really faraway. They have to walk step by step. They love to go to school. This song reflect the city society that many children do not like the go to school, although they are so rich and very easy to go to school.

In fact you may notice a part of Ken’s song called, “Do you Believe in Magic” (at solo, 3:18-3:21)
I love Ken’s things, all make me smile.

* AC DC – For those about to Rock (we salute you)
Zi:Kill – Rocket (fast part)

Oh hey! you know that Tusk Zi:Kill is a fan of AC DC (he might be a fan of Obama, too), but I am not sure about Ken. Zi:Kill did play Suffocate City of Sex Pistol. I do not know about their copyrights, because they do not blame any people who re-play their songs, too. Zi:Kill is so fun. Tusk draw “Z” during this show. (I am smiling) If you let me compare about “For those about to Rock” and “Rocket”, you can be sure that I do love Rocket. The guitarist of Zi:Kill always have a wonderful line. His solo is always optimistic and never ever boring.

Your favorite artist does not have to be the first one who create the things. We should be very happy that someone thinks the same as our favorite artists. And now, we start to listen to the new things!! Our world is not just a box that other people cannot touch. We will never look down other people just because we want to praise our heroes.

Marilyn Manson vs. Hideto Matsumoto

มาริลิน แมนสัน กับ ฮิเดะ ex – X-Japan

As we know that Marilyn Manson and Hideto Matsumoto were friends. Many Japanese fans know only Marilyn Manson, and they dare to say that they are Metal fans. Although the dress and the look of Marilyn Manson and other spooky kids seems like Gothic or Black Metal stuff, but Marilyn Manson music is not that hard. It is Alternative Rock, as he put on his Myspace. In middle 2009, the Hideto Matsumoto Official Myspace was founded by other people to support X Japan re-union. Although it is so strange when it says “Official”, and Hide is not the one who run it; there are a lot of fans add it to be friend. They just show their love to Hide.

Hideto Matsumoto was in LA, during she did her album with Zilch. She was a friend of Marilyn Manson, Genitorturers, etc. Genitorturers’ music seems so close to Hide’s music. I asked her about Hide, too. Both are pretty. Hide’s music sounds like those alternative rock bands at LA, so it is her good opportunity to go there. Although we call this genes “Alternative Rock”, it sounds different from famous alternative rock bands, such Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Cobra Starship, etc. I cannot blame that Hide did suck work if comparing with these famous alternative rock bands, because it is a type of LA things. There are still some songs of Hideto Matsumoto, which are similar with those best alternative rock bands; such as Emotion In Motion, Tell Me, Lemoned I Scream and Honey Blade.

Generally, when we like someone, we will say that other tries to copy him. This may be true or it is just coincident. Or! it is the style of LA people. I am New Yorker anyway, so my answer is not the best of this case of Marilyn Manson and Hideto Matsumoto.

Sw Eden matched these photos.
😀 Have Fun!

My most favorite comparing of Marilyn Manson and Hideto Matsumoto

It is funny when people are in Refrigerator.

Hideto Matsumoto just sit on the luxurious chair

Pete Wentz did the same thing, too. Right now the monkey may play with his kid.

Both Manson and Hide played fake roach!!

See that engagement ring that Hide wore it with Tusk Zi:Kill in their movie Seth Et Holth. It was also fashion the Marilyn Manson and Inoran (Luna sea guy) had, too.

What! diamond on their faces

Hideto Matsumoto and Marilyn Manson
This is just regular dress of Visual Kei people who want to be too much Gothic. You will see a lot of this leather mask on current visual kei bands.

Hideto Matsumoto and Marilyn Manson
This colorful one, people talked about that they are unreal colors, not the colors of nature; that means it is for anti-christ people. Both Hideto Matsumoto and Marilyn Manson are anti-christ. Hideto Matsumoto did well in symbolism; such as in the song, Ever Free. The name of “Eat Me Drink Me” and “If I was your Vampire” are also really great in symbolism therm, too. In case of “Ever Free”, the meaning is “Eve is Free from Garden of Eden”. The Freedom is much painful.

Hideto Matsumoto liked to play with the words as well as Marilyn Manson showed in the album, “The Golden Age Of Grotesque”.

Hideto Matsumoto tended to love Zi:Kill so much, because of their great job in Alternative Rock/ Punk style; and one of the wording reason is “Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”.

Hide always has various dressings as well as Madonna. She said that it was boring to stay the same way.

Visual Kei Cosplay in Thailand

The events/meetings of Visual Kei fans in Thailand are always at MBK Center (Mahboonkrong or มาบุญครอง) every month. MBK is a famous shopping center which has a big space for meeting at the corner of the street. It is near Siam Center, just across the street. You can just imagine of Thai girls dress as Harajuku people. People around the world know that Thai girls are very pretty, so what they will look like, … the prettiest one you saw in Japanese. No lie.

Some Visual Kei bands are so famous in groups of rich teenagers in Thailand, and a lot of Japanese animas do, too. These fans pay a lot of money for their costumes which they wear only in one day. Dir en Grey, Gazette, Miyavi (ex- Dué le Quartz) and D’espairs Ray are very famous currently. Although Malice Mizer is something old, but people always love to dress like them. Mana’s lip is very attractive and unique.

Nongnut is one of classmates in high school. She got asked to dress with a white-fur costumn, because it was not fit in her friend’s body. Her group liked Hyde, L’Arc~en~Ciel so much. She gave me her drawing of Hyde, and I still keep it. Hyde is considered as the best guy in L’Arc en Ciel. He is who you should talk with and have as a friend.

Right now, let’s cross the street to Siam Center. Several buildings have small rooms for rent. Most of those rooms are for rent. Many teachers rent them and their students have to pay a lot of money to take extra classes. It sounds mean that those teachers do not teach everything they know in the school, because they need more money. Visual Kei fans also rent the rooms, too. They use it for the meeting within their own group for each band. X Japan fans liked to eat some spicy things together. Some big fans of Visual Kei also buy many CD and DVD from Japan and sale them in this place. Most of the discs are second hand, because they already watched them. I walked up and looked around in the latest time I visited Siam Center. A group of teenatures with dark-eyes-make-up watched Yoshiki played his piano.

I know an event that X Japan fans usually do in May 2nd of every year. They will meet at MBK or Siam Center and have some party. They will take a bus or train to Hua Lamphong Temple, which is one of the best place to do Coffin-Offerings. They donate money for the corpses who do not have coffin. They hope all merit to go for Hideto Matsumoto (Hide or 秀人松本), their hero.

Here’s my drawing of Hideto Matsumoto.
I do not usually put something that I do not own the copyright.

I do not usually dress as Visual Kei, but I do dress for Halloween. I had got a reward for the scariest dress. Sometimes, I dressed not for the contest. My close friend and I painted ourselves and walk around our high school. Halloween is my most favorite day of the year. So now, let’s go to class!

การตายของ ฮิเดะ The Death of Hideto Matsumoto

กล่าวถึงการแสดงความเศร้าหลาย ๆ วิธีตอนที่ Hideto Matsumoto แขวนคอตัวเอง
คนเขียนเขียนว่า พวกผู้ปกครองเด็ก ๆ ไม่รู้จักแกหรอก แต่ โด่งดังในกลุ่มวัยรุ่น ผมของแกมีสีแดงสว่าง กะ เหลือง ตั้งสู่อากาศ การแต่งหน้าของเขาทำให้เหมือน Dennis Rodman (อย่า search เชียวนะ) ตอนหน้าตาสะอาดสดใสหน่อย ทางแฟน ๆ ทั้งหลายที่มาเสียใจ ก็ผมสีนี้มากมาย เป็นการเพิ่มจำนวนนักเรียนทำผิดกฎโรงเรียนมากขึ้น

ลักษณะของแก ไม่เหมือนกับวัยรุ่นทั่วไป ต้องการดูแตกต่าง แต่ก็ยังไม่ออกจากกลุ่ม แม้ว่าผมของแกจะตั้ง และทำเพลง rock ขนาดไหน แกก็ยังทำกุศล จ่ายเงินทุนโครงการรักษามะเร็งกระดูก อะไรสักอย่าง (bone marrow cancer treatment ไขกระดูมั้ง เท่าที่จำได้)

สาว ๆ หลายคน คิดผิด และพยายามฆ่าตัวตายตามในสัปดาห์เดียวกัน และ 4 คนที่เหลือในวงอะไรสักวง รีบออกมาแก้ปัญหา เพื่อให้แฟน ๆ ยังเข้มแข็ง (จำได้ว่าวงแกน่าจะเหลือ 6 คนน้า) มาสาวน้อยคนหนึ่งใส่เสื้อยืดมีเชื่อของ นาย Matsumoto แล้วกระโดลงมาจากสะพาน ยังไม่รู้สึกตัว และอีก 3 คน ดับไปแล้ว ยังมีเด็กน้อยอายุ 14 ปี พยายามแขวนคอตัวเองตาม fashion และก็มาตาย เพราะพายามแขวนอีกเป็นครั้งต่อไป ผู้ปกครองของเธอบอกว่าเธอตกใจมากเมื่อรู้ว่าการตายของมือกีตาร์

คนญี่ปุ่นก็เป็นแบบนี้มานานแล้ว และมีมาเรื่อย ๆ 2-3 ปีครั้ง ที่ฆ่าตัวตายตามดารานักร้องคนโปรด คนญี่ปุ่นเกือบ 40 คนฆ่าตัวตามในปี 1986 หลังจากนักร้องวัย 18 ปีที่พวกเขาชอบกระโดดลงมาจาก Tokyo office building

Kazuko Ishiwata ผู้ปกครองของแฟนของมือกีตาร์คนนั้น ได้ยืนอยู่ที่งานศพด้วย เพราะว่ากังวน เขาต้องการมั่นใจว่าลูกสาวของเขากลับบ้าน (ไม่ไปดับที่อื่น)

แฟนเพลงผู้ชาย 5 คนนั่งในรถตู้ ขับไปชน คนอายุ 22 ปี ที่เดินไปทางงานศพ

ฝูงชนที่แออัดกันตั้งแต่ Honganji Temple ใกล้ ๆ ตลาดปลา Tsukiji จากจำนวน 25,000 เพิ่มเป็น 50,000 คน และท้าย ๆ วันพฤหัส 200 คนต้องถูกหามไปดูแล และ 50 คนต้องไปโรงพยาบาล เพราะอารมณ์ และอุณหภูมิ 28 องศาเซนติเกต

ตำรวจที่ไม่รู้จัก Hide หลายกองถูกเรียกมาให้มาอยู่ในพวกคนร้องไห้ด้วย โทรทัศน์แสดงภาพการโปรยพรมดอกไม้ของแฟน ๆ

สาวรุ่นคนหนึ่งบอก NHK News คืนนี้ว่า เมื่อเธอมีปัญหา และได้ฟังเพลงของมือกีต้าร์คนนั้น ทำให้เธอรู้สึกมีพลัง

มีอีกคนที่ยืนห่างออกไปมากกว่าไมล์ บอกว่า Hide อาจเหมือนพวกมนุษย์หัวดื้อสังคม แต่แกเป็นพี่ที่ไว้ใจได้ของเธอ
