Been ruining my bank account and dedicating way too much time to browsing Mandarake, auction sites etc., instead of actually watching anime or doing something productive ever since I got my own debit card.

kissimirrit1 kuukautta sitten#123644283I like all genres of music! If the song is good, I'll like it regardless of genre. I really like that the lyrics alternate between English and Japanese, and the guitar rifts are so freakin good in that song. I'll have to check out more of their music!

X (Japan) has a lot of great songs ranging from ballads, like "Tears", to speed metal. Their signature song would almost certainly without a question be "Kurenai". I'd say the entire Blue Blood album is a must listen. "Dahlia", the album from which "Tears" is off of, is more ballad-heavy. I personally really like it, and it's worth checking out at least a few of the other classics off of the album, like "Dahlia" and "Rusty Nail".

There's also their debut, "Vanishing Vision", and their third album, "Jealousy". To be quite frank, I haven't listened through the former yet, although I do have it on CD. It features an earlier (broken) English version of "Kurenai", but I'd recommend listening to the later version first. "Jealousy" is the album that got me into the band, and features such songs as "Silent Jealousy", "Voiceless Screaming", "Stab Me In The Back" and "Say Anything".

If you can stomach a 30 minute song, "Art of Life" is at least eventually well worth a listen, if not a must listen. I wouldn't go as far as some have in saying that it's the greatest song ever, because of how subjective that is, and I don't want to hype it up to an unreasonable extent, but it certainly is one of my personal favorites. I think it's not far-fetched at all, however, to call it the band's and also Yoshiki's personal magnum opus.

Since their reunion in the late 2000s (without the late Hide, of course), the band has released a few new singles, the most notable ones probably being "I.V." (the theme song for Saw IV. Yes, really), and "Jade". If you're left craving for more, there's Hide's solo releases. Most, if not all of the members have released solo material, but Hide's is the most notable. At this point you'll probably be able to find related projects, live recordings, demos etc. on your own.

kissimirrit1 kuukautta sitten#123535320Admittedly, I had to run your reply through a translator. I'm not super advanced and have gotten rusty through years of not practicing.
In 2017 I took a 4-week course as an online Introductory to Finnish, offered by Aalto University in Espoo, and I've been very off and on about learning it. My ADHD likes to cycle through learning several different languages: Japanese (for obvious weaboo reasons), Finnish (I genuinely think Finnish is the nicest sounding language I've ever heard), Spanish (I work retail, and a lot of people who only speak Spanish come in, and I want to make things easier for everyone by learning it), and Pennsylvania Dutch (this was my original mothertongue, but English ended up becoming my dominant language, so I try to keep up with it every so often). I've been thinking of taking up the course again and advancing it! I think languages are neat.


No problem. We've all had to use a translator--often of the good ol' Google variety--every now and then (even when we really shouldn't...*cough*Swedish homework*cough*).

I see. It can be hard to stay motivated learning a language, and I can imagine having something like ADHD would make it even more challenging. I myself have also tried learning Japanese, probably not a huge surprise, but it has mostly been passively absorbing bits of the language through media for a few years now. I used the online Minato courses for a while, and bought a couple of textbooks, but gradually became less and less diligent about devoting time to studying it. I really wanted to go study in Japan as a teen, but realized that was probably not going to happen, and became less and less motivated to keep actively studying the language. Now that Japan is finally open, I really want to go visit, and thus I'm thinking of properly learning the language again. Not to mention that once I hopefully get back on track with my university studies, I could actually apply to go to Japan as an exchange student, at least partially fulfilling my weeby dream.

Here in Finland we have to learn Swedish in school, much to the chagrin of many a middle schooler, but unfortunately I haven't really put in the effort to learn it properly.

I'm genuinely quite surprised that you find Finnish nicer to the ear than, say, Japanese. "Kauneus on katsojan silmässä", as we would say here, I guess. Except that, you know, in this case it would be the ear.

Iltaa! Näin suomalaisena on aina hiukan yllättävää nähdä jonkun vapaaehtoisesti opettelevan tätä meidän erikoista kieltämme, etenkin kun sen puhujia on maailmanlaajuisesti verrattain vähän. Kuinka pitkään olet opetellut suomea?
