Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
A Bit about my Musical Tastes
I have a tendency to like all sorts of music. This has had me going to see Sara McLachlan one weekend and Metallica the next although it's been awhile since I was regularly going to concerts. My musical tastes switch around and I get tired of listening to the same thing also it varies with mood. I love to listen to loud rocking music while driving and on a long drive home at night it helps kee...more
Like Techno or Dance? Like Japanese stuff? Like cute vampires? Have I got the band for you...
Aural Vampire is well known in Finland and Germany. They tour all over the place. They are very fun to listen to in the car. You can buy their music at the Apple itunes store but I really want to get the pressed versions complete with jackets. So ...more
Sometime around 1999 I came across an Anime Music Video that I couldn't get out of my head. An Anime Music Video (AMV) is a fan art form where a custom video is created using Anime (Japanese Animation) to match a piece of music. Typically the music is American, but this one featured a something that I had never heard before in a language I could not identify. Unfortunately the video did not in...more
Hizaki is a Japanese Guitar God and current lead guitarist for Versailles. Hizaki's career has spanned many bands and the self titled Hizaki Grace Project of which the CDs go way too high for my budget on ebay. I really love the sound of Hizaki's playing. It has a strong classical influence similar to Yngwie Malmsteen and is generally of the progressive metal style.
In particular I think that...more
I'm not quite sure where I bumped into Nana at. To bad I didn't find her earlier as she's done a couple of shows in the US. Nana always wanted to be a singer, but was not allowed to pursue her dream until reaching eighteen. So she was already really good coming out of the gate. She also does work as a model, often for the the store "Baby the Stars Shine Bright". She generally dresses up in Loli...more

This smash Anime (Japanese Animation) came out called "Paradise Kiss". I think my friend Jesse introduced me to it. It was wonderful and Bevy even got addicted to the story. We watch the whole thing every once in a while, it's like a box of cookies, you can't eat just one. Well the opening theme song (and most of the music) was just as addictive and was very 80s pop/cool. I found myself cranki...more
Panda Cubed introduced me to Versailles and I was quickly addicted. They are a gothic metal band with very nice vocals and excellent sound. A lot of the sound is inherited from the guitar god Hizaki although Teru is no slouch. If you like bands such as Dream Theater you should like them. Versailles has a strong Vampiric feeling.
