Okay, so I finally got a chance to watch nearly three hours of Uruthigh, Kai arms, Uruthigh, glove licking, tongue flicking, butt wiggling, Uruthigh, creative water spraying, drumgasms, Uruthigh, air humping, nipple grabbing, Uruthigh, hands-crossed-over-the-head gestures that are totally NOT going to give the fangirls thoughts about bondage (oh, no no NO, totally), Uruthigh, and Uruthigh.

Oh, yeah, and I think there was some music involved, too.

But, seriously, folks, once again the boys justified the massive investment of money made in The Decade. I have to say that the song selection was a bit head-scratching for a celebration of their career - lots of obscure early songs, B-sides and album tracks, staples like Hyena and 13 Stairs conspicuous by their absence - but I am very, very happy with most of which was included. (CASSIS! Plus, I was very, very glad they included Nausea and Shudder. It brought back memories for me of listening to NIL while walking on the now-destroyed-by-Sandy Belmar boardwalk. Hell, I think that album as a whole doesn't get enough love).

It was very meaningful to kick off the show with Miseinen - a song about Ruki's personal journey - and I choked up at their reactions when the audience sang Wakaremichi. (That was one of those "bond between the band and the audience" moments that one cannot quite understand until they've been part of the bond).

(One more EXTREME FANGIRLING thing: I had one of those Tumblr "STOP! NO, NO, NO, NO NO! WHY DO YOU EXIST?" moments where, at the end of one song - I think it was Swallowtail on the Death Valley - Ruki licked/sucked his fingers while Kai was doing a full drumgasm. HOLY FREAKING HELL. I've seen things kept behind the counter at 7-Eleven that were less pornographic. Have I mentioned the extremely kinky gloves on both of them? YOW).

The one quibble I have with the DVD (other then them cutting out the jump at the end of the show and the rumored Kai/Uruha butt grab) is there were some rather questionable choices made for where to put the camera when. For instance, they should have stayed focused on Aoi during his entire Cassis solo - IMHO his all-time best, and one of the most beautiful solos in all of J-rock. Instead, they cut around to everyone else, then back to Aoi. Um, let's let the superstar be, well, a superstar, shall we? Also, they had the camera somewhere around Taiwan during most of Kai's emcee, which had me screaming at the screen. "THIS IS MY DAMN BIAS, AND I WANT TO SEE HIM!"

So, well, done, boys, and here's to another 10 years. (Now, about those naked centerfolds . . .)

Totally unrelated personal note: My father is now in a rehabilitation center, a different one than he was in after his first stroke. They're monitoring him closely because they've been noticing an irregular heartbeat after therapy sessions - which shouldn't be happening, since he has a recently-replaced pacemaker. I think his cardiologist is being brought in tomorrow.

And I managed to get another sinus infection, right after getting a flu shot. (For those of you outside the US, we've got a really ugly flu epidemic here now - it's rampant in 48 of 50 states). Ugh. It's like my body was saying, "Keeping me from getting the flu? That's all right, I'll give you something else."

Oh! LOL After I finally got around to posting my own little squee over this DVD I look at my flist, and see your post at the top! Ahahahaha! That's so cool!

I agree, so much. It's awesome, isn't it? Just thinking about it makes me smile! :D So much thigh. I swear the first time I watched it was like a wet dream come true! LOL I didn't mention all the Ruki licking in my post, specifically, but it was so so good! All of it! He sure knows have to make us lust for his gloves/tongue. *grin*

It's a REALLY long DVD, so I guess it couldn't be helped that they cut out the ending... and the butt-grope. It meant that we got to see Uruha doing situps instead... which, yeah. I think I can watch that over and over forever... (Bulge! *fans self*)

I hope they'll be together and make music for another 10 years too! :D

And I hope your father will be fine! *hugs* It must take such a toll on you. :( (And him too of course, and your entire family. My heart goes out to you.)

Oh, irregular heartbeat is never great, but if he has a new pacemaker... O__O I hope he'll be alright. D:

Sorry to hear about your sinus infection! >_< I had one a few years ago that still kind of affects me now, and keeps coming back whenever I have a cold (although luckily not always as bad as it was). Hopefully it'll go away quickly!
