First time 1
How is everyone doing?
This is LIN, who is in charge on Tuesdays.
It’s weird to just be rambling, but let’s think of this as a good way for me to communicate with everyone.
Anyway, today, April 11, 2017, is the day before my 23rd birthday.
Being able to celebrate my birthday with all the SLYKY* 2 each year, I feel really blessed.
It’s not something to be taken for granted, so I’m truly grateful.
What am I doing on this day before my birthday, you ask?
I’m working on a song together with YUKI-san.
I’m not sure when we’ll be able to let everyone listen to it yet, but I’m looking forward to it.
Speaking of working with YUKI-san, sometimes he brings me milk tea.
I think it’s probably so I won’t slack off.
To be honest, I can do my best when I get something.
I might just be a really simple-minded person who gets bribed with things.
Also, YUKI-san’s vocabulary really helps me all the time.
We’re only human, so there are times when we can’t think of lyrics right away.
At times like that, it’s nice to have someone else there.
That’s why it’s probably a good balance between me, who slacks off all the time, and the diligent YUKI-san.
Just kidding, sorry
I’ll do my best
Or rather, I am doing my best
I think that will get conveyed through our song
Speaking of conveying through songs
Music is a really powerful thing
You can’t convey it all with just verses
The subtle sensitiveness in the performer’s heart and the nuances of those expressions are amplified through the cords and melodies.
The drum and bass, which plays the rhythm part is absolutely necessary to express more of a dynamic and aggressive sound rather than the really detailed parts of a song.
In a song that expresses emotions such as anger or fun, we can’t be without the rhythm parts.
Don’t you think it’s all just so well put together?
You can express all sorts of emotions with instruments.
And then you add in lyrics to express in words and it becomes flawless.
For me to be able to work as a musician, it really is a lot of joy.
I’m going to change the topic now to wrap things up, but I’m thinking of introducing a song that I like each time when it’s my turn to post.
I hope to make this a regular thing.
This is today’s song
Two great lights – Kamisama no Uzu
This is a song by an artist that I really love, named Yunomi-san, and a cute female vocalist named nicamoq-san.
Ever since the CD came out, I bought it right away and have been listening to it for the longest time.
It’s really good ( ‘ω’ )
Please check it out if you’re interested
And of course, buy the actual track in order to support the artist!
No one gains anything from illegal downloads
And then, there’s MADKID’s 2nd one man live in Daikanyama UNIT!
It’s going to be this month already!
Those who haven’t gotten your tickets yet, we’re waiting for you to get them!
Feel free to invite your friends to come along!
That’s about it
Now it’s my question corner
Today, the 11th, is nice and chilly and it’s raining, but are you guys the type to use an umbrella?
For me, I hate using umbrellas.
That’s why, even today, I didn’t care even if I got wet, and didn’t use an umbrella.
I’ve been influenced too much by American culture, I guess… (I feel like American people don’t really use umbrellas)
Phew, I haven’t written a blog since I was in elementary school.
It was fun, so I think I can keep doing this from now on.
I even tried using lots of paragraphs to make it more modern (?)
I actually wanted to write formally, but that would sound way too stiff (like writing a report) so I decided not to
That said, see you guys again next week!
This was LIN, in charge on Tuesdays~( ‘ω’ )
A few notes...
- Original post
- Note in translation: LIN mentions “SLYKY” and I’m guessing that’s what MADKID fans are called now. It’s the first initial of each member’s names put together (also the order that they write their blogs in).
