I'm currently in Being Good And Waiting For My Beautiful Deformity To Arrive mode. (Also known as Watching the EMS Tracking Page Like A Freaking Hawk mode). My absolute limit is Friday. If it's not there Friday morning, I crack and download. Hopefully, I will be picking it up on the way home from work tomorrow.

I did, however, watch the Inside Beast PV. OH. MY. GOD. Best PV they have done in YEARS. It combines the beauty of Invisible Wall with the symbolism of the Madara/Reila-era PVs. Heck, it may be their deepest PV ever, because it raises plenty of questions about the Beast selves. We know they symbolize other personas of the boys - but just WHAT are those personas? What they fear in themselves? Who they are at home as opposed to who they are onstage? Or - my biggest theory of the moment - fangirl stereotypes of them taken to the extreme? (Ruki the Diva, passive Uruha, slave driving Kai, etc.?) And the meaning of the end, as Ruki approaches his other self, as if to kill him and drive that other side out of his life, but the Beast self smirks, because he knows that the two Rukis will always be the same person . . . whoa. Just WHOA.

Seriously, this is a candidate for Best Gaze PV Ever, and that's not just the fangirl squee talking. Speaking of squee - KAI WITH WHIP. Holy hell - HOT HOT HOT. It's not just the fact that he's using it, it's not just that his face his the very epitome of dominance - it's that he looks like he KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING. He wields that thing like a champ. He even knows when to let his slave's chain slacken and when to pull it. DAMN. Excuse me, I think it's getting warm in here . . .

And Ruki, strutting around the party like the freaking King of Everything? Oooh, yes. I didn't think it was at all possible for him to be hotter than he was onstage in Munich. I was wrong. WOW.

So, yeah - this PV is a keeper. It's already making me glad I sprung for the super-deluxe how-the-fudge-am-I-going-to-fit-this-on-my-shelf version.

Meanwhile, there's a SCREW single coming out in a couple of weeks - I plan to be doing a fic commemorating it and a fic for Kai's birthday. (And why does Hasbro/We Love Fine have to come out with this just when there's J-rockers draining my bank account?)

I am poor and broke so I went the iTunes way. Only 9.99 for the album; THAT was affordable to me XD

As for the video...the ENTIRE concept of it made me speechless...I have sooooooooo many interpretations for Ruki's parts...I'll explain those later though XD

I'm SO glad that iTunes is offering the album worldwide! I think that's the first time they've done that the day of release - they carry all their albums except Disorder, but most of them were added way after release.

The video is going to be inspiring interpretations for weeks, I think - and I think we're going to be finding more stuff and more hints as to the meaning with every viewing. It's flat-out amazing. I actually got the impression from the previews that Ruki's part wasn't going to be relevant, that he was going to be the "narrator" framing the stories of the others - and then the actual thing comes along and his part might be the deepest of them all. Fantastic!

That PV was everything! Usually I complain about too much Ruki in a video but he was so damn fabulous in this one I didn't even care! I loved how he was sitting in the car and when he put his hands on his hips while walking into that party! His hair and makeup was flawless!! Loved everything about Ruki in this PV! I kinda wished every member had a twin because I REALLY wanted Kai to be spanking himself! LOL!! Speaking of Kai...whoo that man looks innocent but I know deep down he's a freak! I too noticed how he was gripping that chain! Oh he can tie me up and spank me any day!

Kai's fans have always known that he wasn't as innocent as he seemed. XD He's done a LOT of sexy shots in the past (which is why it amazes me that so many people are now saying "Kai is just now letting his sexiness out, he was hiding it before!") And you just gotta think that anyone that outwardly sweet . . . is hiding kinkiness. XD

All of the boys did have twins in the video - the twins were their performing selves. The only members of the band who actually saw their twins, though, were Ruki and Uruha - well, Uruha didn't see him, but he knew he was there, and was reaching out for him. The other three looked out the keyholes of the rooms they were in and saw the twin children, which may know that they know of their own duality, they're not ready to confront their other selves (or, rather, since these are the dark personas, their other selves aren't ready to confront them).

Ruki - at least the red-suited persona at the party - is breaktaking in this video. (I do agree he dominated some of their other recent videos too much - especially Suicide Circus and Fadeless - but this time, the video is truly about all of them, even though he has the spotlight). He's definitely earned his status as my Second Favorite In The Band And Would Be My Bias If Not For Kai. XD

Oh okay I see what your saying about the twin thing, I didn't even think about it like that. Thanks for explaining! Now I'm going to watch it over and over...

I'm kinda impressed how they managed to make it a fashion show, music vid and porn tape all at the same time. And that whole album makes me sexually frustrated, it's just that good. You can't prepare yourself enough for it, because they will fucking end you. :')

AND ALSO THE FACT THAT IT'S A DYNAMIC VIDEO!! Meaning, they're not staying put in a room or warehouse, but the set shifts it makes me so happy oh my goooooooooodddddd

I also feel like I should mention Aoi's shirt is fucking ugly. Could they at least have ironed it? Or maybe tailor it to fit properly? He just doesn't look good in ruffles, I think...
