Highlight of the day has to be the closing band put together by members from the organizing committee.
They were really awesome, super tight. The best in a long long long long long long time.
To my surprise I met the bassist and drummer from my first band. I still remember, that it was on hide's deathday (I didn't know it back then, of course), that I went to Davis with my bassist to buy his first bass. Then headed over to our guitarist's place, I was shown Endless Rain's scores to sight read on a small keyboard that didn't have enough keys. It was the look of joy in their eyes that I decided I'd play. That's when and where I started listening to X Japan. They'd came a long way~
D'J Party itself, well... it's just not quite the same being held in Suntec. Somehow I miss the days of defuse, genexis, l'zefier, amethyst... ah this is random.
Here, from left to right. You have an extremely loving looking zemotion, a DDDDDD: faced Kagetsuki, and a I-has-parasol-desu Dawn.
The picture makes absolutely no sense, but it's cute methinks. Although I've to admit that I wish I looked more dynamic than, of all things, loving. That's just damn freaking wrong for my image. D:
