BIG NEWS!!! (I know this is old news, but this place needs it cobwebs cleaned out) [20 Jun 2007|10:39am]


I had a chance to visit Los Angeles, U.S. for several days recently.
I met an old friend of mine at his recording studio during my stay.
I visited the studio after 10 years, it was much bigger than before,
and to my suprise, its facilities and recording machineries were much more gorgeous.
Maybe one of the top quality recording studios ever!
I was glad it was just like him.
I heard a song created by my friend at the world best studio.
We had a common friend who died almost 10 years ago,
and the song came out of the sorrow, heartache and despair from the experience.
He said he made it at one sitting a few days after the friend's death.
It was such an authentic ballad of his favorite style,
with sad and ephemeral introduction by the piano overlapped with some beautiful melodies of the strings
and furthermore temporarily recorded male vocal.
I could not stop crying to hear the song,
and I wished from the bottom of my heart that it will reach the whole world.
I sang the song along the piano by my friend. He said he really wanted me to sing it.
He showed me its melody playing every single note elaborately and I sang like tracing it.
Words became a song with such a unique melody and rhythm of him.
He chose the right key for me,
saying "It will be just right for you to sing somewhat a tough key rather than a safe and comfortable one."
I tried to sing it all through, and tears welled up again.
"One song tells much more than million words."
That is what my old friend said with a strained voice.
He also seemed crying through his glasses.
It was a moment when both of us deeply touched.
Without many words, one song connected us again.
Maybe, our dear and lost friend did it for us.
Brought up together since childhood for 37 years,
we kept on running together anyway.
I got tired of dashing for the world market and told him that I would leave 10 years ago.
I wanted to sing songs to heal desolate hearts of mine and other people.
And I traved all though Japan for these 10 years,
directly meeting thousands of children, the old, truly a large number of people and singing for them.
It had been such a decate with heartfelt events, tears and learnings for myself.
Rooted on this precious experience,
I would like to sing and send this song of life generated from a sadness for a lost friend for our age.
Our new project is about to start soon,
with this "One Song telling more than Million Words".

If you haven't been keeping up at this, the Song (Without You, ofcorse) will be played at the X Japan reunion concert in LA this December

Icons [23 Sep 2005|06:47pm]


By recommendation of nz_bonjovi_gal I'm posting my icons here. I just heard X Japan for the first time today, and I'm in love! So far I've only done icons of hide, but I'll probably do more including other members as well.

Hello everyone.

New member speaking here, as well as a big fan of X-Japan who thinks Toshi has an incredible voice :) I'm content to see a Toshi community exists on this site. A vocalist like him deserves some appreciation.


Baby X - here [18 Jun 2005|08:29pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hi all, newbie, please be gentle. =)

I've only just been introduced to X (like in the last three weeks) and I love them! Toshi is an amazing vocalist. I love how he can go from a hard rock scream to soaring with the melody of Yoshiki's master pieces. I'm in awe! [/end gush]

Any one know where I might find some Toshi and/or X icons?

I know this may be out of the blue, and yes, probably off topic. But I've started a community for Guitar <3, that's Guitar love if you're confused.
It's still starting, and is pretty lax in everything, but please check it out. Especially if you're interested in Guitars or Bass Guitars.

For some reason, the song currently on my music, is one of the few I get woosy, listening to. What's yours, if it's Toshi related?

Word up from Japan [17 Jun 2004|10:19pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Sup bruthaz? I am in Japan now, yo. Check my journal fo' shizzle.
BTW my host brother gave me some old X bandscore books, so we've got some oldschool Toshi hair going on there. Seriously, there's this one picture that needs a good caption, and Ms. Deyama, you are the one to do it. I will have my friend scan it when I get back to AZ next month.

Nope. [27 May 2004|11:11pm]
Hi. I just joined to let you guys know: Toshi has not left Masaya's organization (aka cult). On his website he wrote that he has denied any relation to a child abuse scam, and that he is filing a lawsuit against the people/newspapers that claimed he had admitted to it and left Masya's organization.

UWAH!!!! [15 Apr 2004|03:31pm]

[ mood | giddy ]

TOSHI LEFT THE CULT!!! TOSHI LEFT THE CULT!!! He claimed that Masaya brainwashed him and he's cutting all ties to him and holding a final concert! *cries with sheer happiness* <--- emotional loser
