All right, since everyone's talking about it...

There. Get over it girls, they're just clothes. You didn't mind it when Madonna and co. tromped into some party or other in suchlike robes right when the Pope got sick, you didn't mind it when all the other V-kei bands decked themselves out in suchlike uniforms, stop being offended now. Is it no longer possible to enjoy music and a concert experience without judging each and every thing about it? Godsall. x_X;;

It's a well known fact that a man in uniform is fucking sexy. Despite the fact that we disagree on many different things, this is one thing that my mother and I agree on most vehemently. It's sexy. It's meant to be sexy. Let's keep it at that until Hyde tells us otherwise, ne? ;p

people overreact to the dumbest stuff, why cant they be a little more openminded? x__x

'Cause they're silly?

No... they're obviously not silly enough!

Just.... Word. You summed up the whole thing much better and shorter than I ever would have managed to, lol.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on August 12th, 2005 02:50 pm (UTC)
Why thank you. ^-^;; And here I was thinking I didn't have enough proof to back me up.

...And then I realized I didn't need proof to be able to have an opinion of the goings-on in the forums/LJ comms.

And they were German. A good lot of them must've been pretty.

...But as always, it's your deeds that you're remembered for. Shame shame.

i don't know about the pope.....he looks a bit weird in that, but t-shirt and uniform is totally hot.

i feel offended by the people who are offended. i doubt they tried to see the uniform as more than just wearing the nazi uniform, i doubt they tried to understand the powerful anti-war message hidden behind. then they sit around and criticize him for what he is not doing.

stupid, ignorant, narrow minded people
Stephaniemirroredsakura on August 12th, 2005 01:46 pm (UTC)
I still like that while everyone criticizes the uniform, no one notices the Pope.

...I guess this shows just how prevalent the Catholic/Christian population is amongst this fandom? The Pope just died not too long ago... no one has enough religious fervor to stand up for that??

Not that I criticize Hyde for being a pope. He is following a long tradition of other JRocker popes. Most memorable of all to Steph is Pope!Malice Mizer. ;p

I love each and every one of those outfits with all my heart

^^ I somehow knew you would.

Thankfully I missed all of it... as for Hyde... Uniform!Hyde is hot no matter what uniform it is. I'd love to deck him out in a US Marine uniform and - as a former member of the Navy - I can't stand marines.... Pope!Hyde is... freaky looking.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on August 14th, 2005 02:31 am (UTC)
Pope!Hyde also somehow requires long hair. o.O;; Who's ever seen such a pope? ;p

Stephaniemirroredsakura on August 14th, 2005 03:03 pm (UTC)
That's generally my motto...

And just like every other rule in Steph's life, she tends to break them all accidentally. ^^;;;

i know i know,all long ago blabla..adn YEAH its sexy,but this uniforms where made by ppl for ppl once,age ago. not to look sexy but to kill. its the uniform of pure evil,in my eyes. and i guess when hyde is against war,and against zoos and against violance. then he should THINK before he does ALL THING MARLIN MANSON does,just because is SEXY!

its no evil from a stupid book or so, or a story,centuries ago,ppl died,killed by man in this uniforms, ppl not so far aways in time. my grandpa,for example! my aunt!..... this is no joke for me. i don't mind that he DID IT,because i know for our nice japanese friends its just fun and show.but when us-bands start to run around with atomar bombs on the stage and play hiroshima,then they wont take a joke,believe me!

i allways was sure hyde is smarter.. the niji pv was not ttthaaaattt hard,but this show is it. to me

I refuse to hate people. I do, I really do. I'm horrified at what humans in general are capable of--and I can't really hate them all, can I? I can't hate the Nazis any more than I can hate the Americans. And Americans have done some pretty shitty things--the Vietnam War, for instance. Haven't you heard of some of the things that were done there? Raping, terrorizing, tearing women and children apart... oh yeah, they've done those. Can I hate the American army for that?

I'm Chinese, by the way. I have family that was involved in the second world war. My grandmother's mother and older sister were both raped by Japanese soldiers, their town was terrorized by them and she hates them. Should I? I don't consider that a joke--I've got a loyalty to my heritage, should I follow in my grandmother and my father's footsteps and hate them all?

Also, I wouldn't accuse Hyde like that. Not just because I'm a fan, but look at it straight. Japanese citizens know very little about the second world war--a very censored version. Hyde probably doesn't know half of what his country's done. There's a different view on the Nazi uniform in that side of the world.

And besides... Hyde didn't wear it just to be shocking. He was making a statement. Nor is it a Nazi uniform.
It's the "A" from "AWAKE".

It also had to do with the tracklisting... did you know what he wore those costumes for? The pope costume was worn during "REVELATION" as a reference to the Book of Revelations in the Bible.

His use of the "Nazi" costume was sung during "AS ONE" (and another one perhaps, I can't remember). It was meant as a powerful anti-war symbol... after all, can you imagine a Nazi extending a hand in friendship? Not really. But if one could do it, wouldn't that be a symbol of actually moving towards world peace?

What's wrong with rock stars wanting world peace?

[/long-winded reply]

And now... er.... I've really got to ask. Who are you? ^^; Don't be offended when I ask--I've got a horrible memory and if I've asked you before and have just forgotten again, I apologize.
