Which celebrity are you sick of seeing? Who would you like to see more of?

I'm sick of Justin Bieber. He just annoys me. I think it's the hair.

I can think of quite a few celebrities I'd like to see more of. I really hope that Get Scared will make more music after their tour with BVB is over. They're completely amazing. I'm so addicted to them!

First of all... Black Veil Brides and Get Scared are my current addictions. They're simply amazing. Seeing them in concert and meeting them pretty much made my life WAYYYYYY better than it was before. Vampires Everywhere! and Modern Day Escape were awesome as well, but I didn't get to meet them. =( Megan and I did the meet and greet with BVB, then we met Nicholas from Get Scared outside before we left. All I can say is wow, they're all really sweet people. I got touched by Ashley Purdy (on the arm, ha ha... anything more might've killed me) and hugged by Andy and Nicholas. I also got Sandra to pose for a picture looking like her adorable self. And Jake and Jinx... they're just beautiful and amazing. *dies* Possibly the most intense concert of my life, but it was worth every second. The drive there and back... Well... Those were interesting. The drive there was a good story to tell to Andy and Nicholas, ha ha. They were actually surprised that we'd traveled so far to get there and see them. Well, why wouldn't we? They're brilliant! So yeah, I've been recovering from that night for quite a while now. The concert was the 23rd, and I still feel a few after-effects. It was worth all of the physical effects though.

Anyway, I've been on the hunt for employment. Got two interviews, one which I had earlier today via telephone. The other one is tomorrow afternoon, in-person. I always get nervous but really try to just be genuine. So hopefully that works out for me, ha ha.

One final thing, and kind of a rant (though it will be overshadowed by that initial paragraph up there): If you give your word to participate in something, don't be half-assed, and don't back out without warning. It's a childish thing to do, and you will lose any credibility you're trying to acquire for yourself. In a group setting, the group is only as strong as its weakest link, and I will not stand for any weak links. In the business my group is in, you have to fight and claw your way to the top while retaining professionalism and uniqueness of character. My group has the latter, and the committed members strive toward the former. Someone who has neither has no place with us. Careful screening is being heightened. (I don't think that last sentence made sense, but I'm trying to not think in Japanese right now...)

Back to me salivating over my pictures from the concert. <3 I'll have to get them onto Photobucket and put up a link here at some point. I'm really shocked that the pictures turned out so well. Much clearer than the ones from the H.I.M. concert, but I think the smaller size of the venue and better lighting made a huge difference.

And anyone who reads this... Go download some BVB and Get Scared if you haven't already. I promise, they're astoundingly talented! =)

Which musicians of the last two decades have had the most lasting impact on music as we know it today?

In terms of Asian music (especially in it becoming acknowledged worldwide), I would say X Japan. They have inspired younger generations to create music and make Asian music more global. I think they were absolutely necessary in creating awareness of Asian talent, especially in America. Now we have a ton of crossover talents like Rain making it big in the States. Still, I think X Japan kick-started the Asian sensation. =) hide-sama may be gone, but his spirit lives on and continues to inspire people. This is a band that has been to hell and back. I think Yoshiki will always be a big-time player in the music industry. Wherever he goes, whatever he does, he makes magic through music. He braids classical and rock and works with many different musicians, even pop musicians like Pink (whom I love, by the way). I would really like to see more strong, talented Asian bands make it here in the States, and I think that is starting to happen.

Do you give your vehicles names? If so, what are they?

My '95 Lebaron is the most aptly-named Baron. And yes, my car is a boy. =)

28th-Apr-2010 10:49 pm - What's wrong with this picture?
There is no excuse for twenty-something-aged college students to behave like middle-schoolers. Talking about someone behind their back is ridiculous. Grow up. Say it to that person's face, then work out your problems. If you can't do that, then don't have any false pretenses. Don't claim to be someone's friend if you can't take your qualms up directly with them. Lame. Completely lame. I don't even need to know who you are, but the people you talk about know what you're doing, and it saddens them to know that you do this. Besides, as Oscar Wilde once said, "A true friend stabs you in the front."

Have you ever changed your eating habits for a new relationship (e.g., switched to vegetarianism, eaten more meat, etc.)? If yes, did you stick with it when you were eating out with other friends? Which lasted longer, the food regimen or the relationship?

I could never change my eating habits just to be with someone else, and I would never expect them to do that just to be with me. It's a personal decision everyone should make for themselves.

I do have a funny story about going out on a casual first date with a guy whom I didn't know was a vegetarian... I ordered a bowl of chicken soup. Oops. Leave it to me to unintentionally insult someone on a first date. At least now I have Matt, and we have similar eating habits. He is trying to cut out caffeine, though, and I just can't do it. I'm a horrible addict. I won't make him drink it, though.

Do you have good friends from other countries that you've met on LiveJournal? Have you ever met them in person? If not, do you think you ever will?

Not many from LiveJournal. I met Miru-chan on GJ, so does that count? I've never met any foreign Internet friends in person. Hopefully I will be able to some day! I've met a few non-foreign Internet friends in person, which has been really nice.

If you had to serve a meal to an ambassador from another country that symbolized your country's culture, what would you choose? Do you think s/he would love it as much as you do?

I would serve a bastardized version of that country's traditional cuisine. That's how Americans roll. (I mean, come on, look at what we've done to Asian horror films...) I'm sure the ambassador would be slightly embarrassed and possibly upset, but I would proceed in explaining that this is the "American" way.

This is an absolutely horrible idea that I would never recommend carrying out, by the way.

If you could hang out with any fictional character for a whole day, who would you choose, and why?

Marius de Romanus from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. We'd have fun talking about art history, our philosophies, and... Shit, we'd have to hang out at night. Does that count? Anyway, I'd probably end up asking him a ton of questions about being a vampire and use that in my own vampire stories. *nods*

shinee angel
How well do you take criticism? Do you deflect it or take it personally? Does it usually inspire you to change? Are you more critical of yourself or others?

The criticism I receive makes me all the more stubborn in my ways. It has the reverse effect of whatever was originally intended. I suppose I'm too set in my ways, but it's not like I attack others when they feel the need to give criticism. There is a very fine line between constructive criticism and rude critique. I prefer rude critique. It's even that much better for my persistent self-affirmation.
