Re: New Tour: Kanpo Seimei presents URAWAN - DREAMS COME TRUE Ura Dori Wonderland 2016

Your translation is correct. To avoid scalping, the ticket vendor is sending 'pre-tickets,' or vouchers, which must be presented in order to receive the actual ticket on the day of the show.

I understand why they are doing it, but it certainly is inconvenient.

Re: Seventh of July Sunny Day

Happy 20th Anniversary! Just finished watching (again)!

Still no DVD, although it appears you can stream it (in HD!), which is good; I'm not sure how much longer my VHS copy (and player) will last.

DCT uses Warukuma, the "Bad Bear" as the mascot for the Ura Dori concerts, perhaps because it's the "other side" of Wonderland.

Re: DCT music video list, also what's your favorite dct video?

Despite the old tech, 'Romance' is one of my favorites; great song and performance video. 'Ola, Vitoria!' is uplifting and subtly humorous, 'Love Letter' atmospheric and sweet, and Miwa and Masa do look like they're having a lot of fun on 'Jet/Sunshine'. This might be a good time to review, though...

Re: DCT on vinyl?

I have never seen any, and I've been to Japan several times (I've only found a couple of stores in Tokyo that sold any vinyl, and that was all used) and spent a lot of time in record stores there. DCT began recording a few years into the CD era, when almost nobody was feeling nostalgia for vinyl ver...

Re: Tribute to Maurice White (EWF)...

Please don't forget the English version, which is 'Wherever you are' and was a number one hit in Japan! I think it's a more fitting tribute.

Re: Wonderland 2015...

It's easy to read into this interview, but let's hope for the best... we would like to see them again performing together!

We haven't seen the 'Attack 25' concert video yet, but weren't that thrilled with the album (a first, sadly).

Nice to have you posting!

Re: Wonderland 2015...

According to my wife, Masa says that when he thinks about his age, he wants to make this Wonderland his last. He will be over sixty in 2019. Because DWL 2019 will coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of DCT, he would be more interested in the production side of the tour. He says "For Miwa's sake,...

Jei said:

"I saw that some of the crowd went to Nishikawa's After Party at bar reboot...wonder how long it took them to get there, based on your description"

It's a bit of a trip... We didn't try it after DWL 2011, and that show was on a Summer afternoon. Probably a blast, though.

I've never had any problems with using U.S.-made plugs in Japanese sockets.

Re: Wonderland 2015...

Does this mean DCT will do these 20 songs, and give up trying to fit in more by using medleys? In a way, it will be nice to have full-length versions of each song. On the other hand, it means much fewer chances for favorite songs to be performed. I loved getting to hear 'The signs of LOVE' and 'Taiy...

Re: New Greatest Hits Album: The Best - Watashi to Dorikamu

Speaking of a video compilation, a four-hour SSTV special that appears to have all the videos is up on jps (if you don't mind an 11.12-gig download).
