I started a new thread for this, since I thought it'd help keep things organized.
Or.
Something like that.

Anyways!
Since there has still been no word from Animazement and the con is only a couple of months away, how does organizing our own Jrock/Gothic Lolita meetup sound?
This way, we can go ahead and start planning things.

What do you all think?
Comments? Suggestions?

Hi Char Hakkai.

It's great that you are attending AZ.. I really enjoyed the panel at Nekocon. Yea this sounds good.. I don't know what's the deal with AZ and why they can't reply to a simple email or atleast let the person know that they received the email and will let you know if the panel is a go or not.

So a meeting or a get together sounds great if no word from AZ. I'm trying to get some contact information from a friend of mine who does the MC for the masqurade, so maybe I can find out who runs this thing.

If the panels don't happen maybe we can all get together on Friday night.

Good luck on contacting Animaze. If we had an actual panel again, that would be really cool.

But I think a meetup on Friday night would be fun.
Maybe later, like...9 PM-ish?

Kas

Yea.. 9'ish sounds good. Maybe we can all can meet in the lobby or the bar where they will have tables and chairs. We all can were our gothic, lolita, jrock attire and have alittle photoshoot and talk and hang out. I'll try to think of some more things. :)

That sounds great with me. I'll join in as well. Mostly to photograph that is. I have a friend that likes gothic lolita, like me, that likes looking at all the different clothing there is. That and plus some of the color schemes might help her with her own EGL clothing.

Sounds good to me. ^^ Hopefully I'll be able to attend. I'll at least stop by to take a few pictures if nothing else.

ahhgg i just sent a third email and i used my work address this time just in case my yahoo account doesn't work with them, and still no word, but i'm all for a met up!

03-31-2004, 11:00 PM
Meh, I've about lost hope in setting an actual panel up with them.
-_-
At this point I just wish I knew WHY they weren't replying.

char_hakkai
04-01-2004, 10:53 PM
Mmm...Gothic Crotchety Old Women and Mumbling Angsty Rock.
I love April Fools Day. BOING!!!

Question for the meetup: how does a kind of informal discussion sound? With all that goes on in the EGL and J-rock communities I'm sure that could be fun...
I'll keep thinking about more things to do. ^_^

I also think it might be a good idea to bring some flyers to post about the hotel, since we won't be in the program book without a panel.
What do you all think?

Ohh~ A get-together/discussion/photoshoot-thing-a-mah-bober would be so cool! :heart:

AZ wont ever e-mail me back either. I e-mailed them a few times a while back asking them something (( can't remember what now x.x;; )). But the never got back to me. :sulk:

Yea I give up too on emailing AZ.. grr.. oh well.. this meetup sounds like a plan.. Friday night sounds cool too.. I'm trying to get my EGL outfit together.. maybe someone can bring their laptop and we can watch some jrock yummy videos. :D

I'm really sad because this other con PMX is having all kinds of jrock goodness and I can't attend. :(

char_hakkai
04-14-2004, 07:01 PM
Videos could be fun. ^_~
It would be nice if we could find a TV to steal somewhere...I can bring my laptop, though. It's got plenty of Jrock-goodness on it.

PMX...yeah, I heard about Psycho le Cemu going.
Personally, I can't stand them, but I guess a lot of people are excited about it. ^^

I'm bringing a DVD player for the guys rooming with me, If anyone gets a TV, I do have the X-Japan [BEST] collection cd/DVD. Nice video collection from the best of the J-rock world. :rockon:
Just wish it was subtitled...

char_hakkai
04-19-2004, 02:21 PM
Ohh, X JAPAN. Sweet. XD
I've got some random Jrock tapes and DVDs, mostly GLAY with a little Diru thrown in, and then there's the gigabytes of folders dedicated to Jrock on my computer...
Now, what we need to do is steal a video room. *plots*

04-19-2004, 05:32 PM
i got some gothic lolita bibles and another gothic lolita book ill bring ^o^ ahh hee

Awesome, Glay's pretty cool. I throw a few of the songs I have of theirs in my online radio station playlist now and then. Let's get a J-rock video viewing setup for somewhere in the con, would be fun. And I'll make sure to bring the X-Japan DVD.

I'm relatively new to the J-rock/EGL scene, but I'll gladly join in. I think it's mostly the spiffy clothes and yummy J-rock bishounen that pulled me in, though...is this a bad thing?

Depends, I only listen to J-rock for the music, not the looks. BTw, my borther is thinking of dressing as Toshi from X-Japan, we just need to find hi a long blonde wig to spike and a leather jacket. XD

I love X-japan. One of my favorite groups to rock out on. I just pump up the music and enjoy life.

I've noticed the J-Rock pannels before, but never gone to one yet. I love to listen to and play Japanese music, but I'm just not that big into the goth and, I think it's called "visual kei" bands (like Dir en Grey, Malice Mizer, etc). As far as J-rock goes I mostly like The Pillows, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, Porno Graphitti, The Yellow Monkey, The Brilliant Green, Do as Infinity, Yaida Hitomi, Shiina Ringo, Bonnie Pink, B'z, Luna Sea, and SOME songs by Mr. Children, L'arc en Ciel, X -Japan, and Gackt.

04-22-2004, 11:08 PM
Squee, this is going to be much fun. ^_^
Getting a video setup sounds like a really great idea. Where are we going to steal a TV?
We can have like...a gothic lolita fashion show for all those that want to take pictures. XD

Kas & liz-maru - I've got an indies visual kei magazine called "Cure" that I can bring; lots of Kagrra and gothic goodness.

DDR Faery Spice - I don't think there's anything wrong with appreciating the visual look of Jrock, especially since there's so much effort put in that area. I'll admit that I'm attracted to it too. But it is important to appreciate the music too; after all these guys ARE musicians. Or, at least, if all you're interested in is the visual aspect not to critique them as a band. If...that makes any sense. o_o

Great SG - XJAPAN cosplay! Awesome. XD

SakeNinja2 - You should come check it out! I'm more into the music myself. You've got a nice list of bands there (hurrah for Shiina Ringo and Yaida Hitomi!).

Glay?...Gackt?...L'arc en Ciel?...You guys are speaking my language! :rockon: I wish the good ol' Weiss seiyuus still had a following. I have their live concert but nobody cares...*sigh*. If theres a j-rock panel please let me know!!!

Wai, I'm so happy to see other GLAY fans! Too often I meet people that don't like them because they aren't visual. ^^
And I <3 WeiB, mostly still because they amuse me. I'd love to see that live concert. xD Seki Tomokazu~~~...

I'm not sure on an actual panel, but this meetup is scheduled for Friday at 9PM currently (in case anyone missed it earlier). I've heard that Animaze is *finally* replying to email now though...should we still try for an actual panel, or just go with a more informal get-together like this?

GreatSG
04-23-2004, 03:26 PM
Just some FYI, I got an e-mail back from Animazement on panels, was going to do one but I cancelled the idea of it, might do something else. But they said they had some sort of e-mail program malfunction, but it seems they're fianlly e-mailing folks.

So now some of you might get back in on working on your J-rock panels, i'm willing to be a co-contributor btw.

DDR Faery Spice
04-23-2004, 03:59 PM
The looks may have been the thing that pulled me in, but I'm hooked on the music as well, by now. ^^; Maybe I should have specified that from the beginning. But it's hard to get lots of J-rock music and such when you're internet-less....like me. ;_;

Must stink not having a net connection, guess sometimes you just gotta throw down the money for those import Cds. OR get the X-Japan Best DVD/CD great stuff.
As for finding J-rock, I have like over 100 J-rock songs from a bunch of bands, and at the moment I'm in the midst of acquring all of Luna Sea's albums through Bittorent. Shh~ :D

YAYNESS! You've all heard me whining about losing my job but today I got hired at my frikkin' DREAM JOB! I'm so happy! :love: And what makes it even better is that they want me to do a fashion report on the Gothic Lolita cosplay. (Like I said...DREAM JOB!!!) So whoever doesn't mind talking with me please let me know! I want to do a good job since I just got hired. Can I maybe come to the meet up? Someone let me know!

Wow...a report on Gothic Lolita fashion? Sounds like a fun job!

You're more than welcome to come to the meetup: this is open to everyone! ^_^
I ran a Gothic Lolita panel at this past Nekocon and am really interested in the scene; I'm not sure how much help I can be, but I'd be more than happy to talk with you.

ohh guess what i got today an email from the panel organizer at AZ, they said that they got a number of request for Jrock panels so they are trying to figure out how to organize it all and that my request for a Gothic lolita/Jrock panel might be a separate enity, but they will get back to me if it gets approved and what time and such!!

YAY!!! lets hope folks!!

Meh...good to see they're finally getting around to replying to email.

Personally, I'm no longer interested in running a panel. Animazement seriously lost points with me over that whole thing (why couldn't they at least have updated their website with something along the lines of "we're having trouble with our email?"). I'm more interested in the meetup...it's still on, right? Even if there's a panel, too?

But the get together still sounds like a cool plan to me..

I know I'll be doing Jrock cosplay, but I don't what I'll end up doing. x_x On and off I'll be with two other Jrock cosplayers, but I just tend to follow their lead at times (hey, they take care of my makeup and make sure my costume doesn't suck, I'm willing to do what they want for a couple hours) so... yeah.


I guess this was kind of a useless reply. :lost:

Mako-san
05-03-2004, 02:47 PM
yeah i felt put off by it too, but if they grant the time and room, and I requested Friday night at 9pm, then we can all just meet in that room, well have a big place to go, and if its the same room, we might can use the video projection to project the videos. I was hopeing to do a slide show with pics of gothic lolita fashion and such.

So...if you guys are running a panel, moving the meetup to that room sounds like a great idea.
How about meetup/panel at 9 PM in whatever room the Jrock panel is in Friday night?
We can all dress up, take pictures, watch Jrock and stuff.
Sweet. ^_^

I'll be wearing my punkish Lolita outfit that Friday, (I'm wearing my Kaoru outfit Sat.) I can bring Dir en Grey 5 ugly kingdoms live or the Malice Mizer Bara no Konrei (I THINK thatís the name, its the last big live of Malice Mizer.) if I can make it Iíll bring it Iím pretty sure I can get to the panel though Fri night. now the only question is wither to wear my platform Maryjanes or combat boots with my out fit ^_^...

05-18-2004, 05:28 PM

Hay that sounds like a great plan! I still haven heard back from them, telling me if its confirmed :untrust: I tell ya those people need either a better email system or a better person... but i think what might happen is we get there on friday and look at the program sheet and see a panel listed.
But I'll email them again... but thats a great plan Char_Hakkai!

GreatSG
05-18-2004, 08:54 PM
Okay, I'll definitely be at the J-rock meeting.

Also, i'm brining the X Japan X-Clips DVD and I'll probably be the only guy at the meeting XD

Okay so I just got an email back from AZ, the panel is at 11pm on friday night!! 11pm!!! hmm i mean i don't mind the lastness but I would prefer it it was earlier.

So what do you all think?!! 11pm sounds good?

oh GreatSG hay the more the merrier!

Lyn
05-20-2004, 02:17 PM
I can still make it. And I have a few J-Rock friends with me that can too. Though I think that maybe the gathering should be a bit earlier than that and people can hang until the panel or something.

GreatSG
05-20-2004, 03:24 PM
11PM damn, hope that doesn't cut in the way of kareoke, Cause I have to record my borther's preformance and all that cause 1: He CAN sing, and 2: he's doing an X-Japan and will be dressed as Toshi. Maybe we can all cheer him on or something. XD

Eeeep, Friday at 11, eh? I should HOPEFULLY be able to make it... still contemplating on if I want to wear my Karyu costume on Friday or Saturday. T_T

Maybe I should like... wear it only for the meetup, then wear it Saturday? I dunno. I'm so confused. T_T

Hey, I just noticed on the tentative schedule they have on the site, there's not only the Gothic Lolita panel on Friday planned but also a J-Rock Viewing Room on Saturday. Not sure if any of you had anything to do with the Sat thing or not but at least there is something else for those that can't go to the Friday thing.

And I realized that I probably should wear something more EGLish to the gothic lolita one (there also appears to be a tea party for that on Sunday) so I might wear Cain to that and Kamijo on Sat instead of my original plan.

DancingVampire
05-27-2004, 05:29 PM
::flips through the schedule::, there also seems to be a EGL tea part on Sun.
