overheard midget ass-kissing comments circa 2005
Obviously he wasn't very involved in Smile because he only wrote two songs.
Smile is my least favorite album, so I'm not surprised he wasn't very involved. If he was, I would have liked it more.
I'm not really that fond of Tetsu and Ken's songs.
It's so cute when he runs out of breath in live songs. SUGOI KAWAII
it just isn’t a l’arc/vamps status update without one of these desperate ass posts in the comments section
I hope this intern gets fired.
that strange moment when the dumb comment on l’arc’s fb is found in the post itself rather than the comments
this isn’t an example of dumb fans per se but still wow can you not
ok that’s nice now go and take a seat
#someone needs to take a seat
#WHY ARE YOU CALLING PEOPLE OUT ON THIS I DONT GET IT???? #??? THEY JUST SAID THEY LIKE THE SONG
you’ve misunderstood me - I’m not calling them out for liking the song, I’m calling them out for stating that the song isn’t a song that l’arc should play
also the formatting is terrible but that’s another matter entirely
it’s ok to think that. I can kind of agree with them, actually. the song is fun and cute but I feel like it’s not exactly their style in a way. (not that they shouldn’t sing it, but the song is definitely different than what I’m used to by them.) you’re implying that the fans have to love every song that a band puts out and that’s not true. I have songs by l’arc that I really just can’t listen to but that doesn’t make me love THE BAND any less.
but yeah the formatting
idk i still just don’t understand why it’s grounds for so much criticism to the point that you actually took the time to screenshot and crop this comment from five years ago, and post it on a blog so you could make fun of it. and like…that is the entirety of this blog that you run and i just dont understand. the comment isn’t THAT bad. a lot of these comments aren’t that bad to the point where i would consider going through that much trouble lol. and it’s just mean. I mean, some of the l’arc fandom is ridiculous but you have that in every fandom so really why are you dedicating a blog to making fun of people for liking a band i don’t get it
How is it not exactly their style? It’s a big band jazz arrangement, and certainly not the first (nor last, hopefully) jazz song that they have released. What about Singin’ in the Rain, Ophelia, Sell My Soul, etc.? Granted the horn arrangements on those aren’t nearly as extensive as the ones in Hurry Xmas, but they are all stylistically related.
And yet again you’ve misunderstood me. I’m not implying that they have to love every song ever, I’m implying that it’s silly to state that a band can’t make songs within a certain genre just because you feel that it’s out of their stylistic comfort zone. My main issue with the comment at hand is that the poster stated outright that L’Arc shouldn’t play Hurry Xmas, despite her fondness for the song. It’s quite contradictory.
As for the comment itself, I merely ran across it while procrastinating on youtube and thought that it was funny and worth posting. There’s no doubt that there’s far better examples of the idiocy of the L’Arc fandom, but I found that particular quote humorous. Regarding my blog, it mostly stemmed out of the sheer amount of dumb posts on the official FB page. While the L’Arc fandom isn’t terrible in comparison to larger fandoms, there are a good amount of delusional hyde-obsessed idiots who enjoy spamming the place with annoying pleas to visit their country, how no one matters but hyde etc. etc. and quite frankly it’s fun to share that idiocy with others. It’s fine if you don’t enjoy that kind of humor, but do try to understand that others might.
