YAY, I've ordered a Kai plushie! one_short_fuse is doing customized knitted J-rock dolls and they are EPIC adorable (plus affordable - even on a MY FAVORITE BANDS ARE DRAINING ME DRY! budget). If you want to order one, go here! (My Kai is going to be Decade era, by the way - you can have the plushies in any look/era you want!)

Also, it is a great time in fanfiction land, because aleksiina_26 is writing again! You can read her new Tora X Shou fic, Love is Blind, at Archive Of Our Own (I probably should get an account there myself for longer fics so I don't have to split them to post them). Do I have to mention that it's fabulous? Sweet, romantic and with a very, very hot smut scene - definitely worthy of checking out!

And I am two-fifths of the way to a bingo in Penisy Kinks Bingo! I may be getting off the bingo line in the near future, though, because the preview photo released of Kai for his Shoxx layout has made me want to write a very specific kink for him, which is on a different line. (Have I mentioned HOT PICTURE IS HOT? Thank God this heat wave is supposed to break by the time the full layout makes its way onto Tumblr, or I might pass out).

And finally, I got a chance to listen to SCREW's new album this morning during an early-morning walk (which is the only time you can go walking in this heat).Like any new album from a band I love, I'm going to need a few more listens to fully process it all, but I will say this - it is, as expected, awesome. The album pretty much does what you're expecting - it's SCREW as a major label band. It's everything their fans loved about them in the past with an extra layer of sophistication. The songs cover hard rock, more poppish rock, ballads, metal and a touch of hip-hop and electronics (though the latter is nowhere near the level of Nintendofest used on Division). Also, Byou seems to be answering all the yappers on YouTube who have been calling him a "lazy vocalist" - he's ditched most of the electronic distortion that has been used on his voice a lot in the past and divides his vocal style between singing, growling and screaming. (Plus, those oh-so-sexy whispers. Yum). And I seem to have detected a lot more Byouglish than usual - like I said, I'll be processing it more on future listens.

From the lyric translations I've seen on tumblr... Byouglish is definitely right! XD Wow, I didn't even realise half of those songs were in English. Funny how I can detect Ruklish, but not that - guess I need more training?

SCREW's album is amazing. I absolutely loved it ♡ Jin, who composed majority of the songs, did a great job ;u; But ofc all of them did a great job. People who were afraid of them going major has nothing to worry about now because the songs are still SCREW-like but at the same time, something quite new <3 And really? Byou's being called a "lazy vocalist"? Wow. Well, this album should show how much each member has improved and also how much the band as a whole has also improved ♡
