Twitter is the devil  



I've been meaning to make this post WEEKS ago! And I'm not even kidding. I swear, I've tweeted these 5 months more than I've in 5 years... and I'm not joking. Twitter does something to you. ugh. I think it's because it doesnt take much effort to write your thoughts... as oppose to LJ where you have to format and shit...

But on twitter, I've realised that I can't go full on pervy as I can on LJ, you know... like I feel like my mother is going to happen upon my pervy tweets or others are judging me LOL

It sounds silly but it's true... like I seriously want to lust after Ueda's and Kame's collorbones and when they expose their nipples, my imagination goes all sorts of exoticism with flashes of hell for the thoughts I have but twitter is no good for that...

Like look at Ueda and Kame... I wouldn't mind living out the rest of my days just chomping on their collarbones and playing with their tits and this pic;



Like, I would give Ueda a whip and just lie bare before him and take my punishment... you know?

I like LJ because I can be pervy without worrying about being blocked... unlike twitter that's sensored... as well, I feel like LJ is less judgy...

And where's that pic of Nakamaru's shoulder blades? Someone, please hook me up.

Anyway, apart from that, many things happened why I've been absent from here... like I recently moved... job hunting... found new job... adjusting to new place... not winning concert tickets to CAST... then having to buy a ticket thrice the normal ticket price... to Klaroline not being 'official' endgame [this one hit me hard, you guys... TV is wicked - and that's a whole new anger that I need to address in a separate post... someday], to being iffy about making it to GACKT's new event in October with the new job and all... many things... though I suppose looking at them written out now, they all seem trivial...

Anyhow, this vid of Nakamaru made me laugh today and so it's the reason why I'm solidly able to make this post;


I know I always complain about twitter even though it seems like now I'm always there but the truth is, I hate it... and I want to hurry up and get over my heartbreak over Klaroline so I can again live a secluded life without feeling the need to lash out at people I consider stupid. ugh

Hello, is anyone still here?

(I'm not sure if you remember me but I'm gonna leave a comment anyway HAHA.)

Okay lmao I got an email notification on this entry update and I can't help but to say something because I'm laughing so much on your little twitter confession😂 I totally get it that you feel that way even though you still hate it, I was like that too like I would always think twice about tweeting something because like you I was afraid of being judged, but then after being on twitter for like a little over 8 years now, I literally don't care because at the end of the day it's your account anyway and it's an open platform. if people wants to judge, thats just a reflection of the kind of person they are😌

Although I haven't been very present on my fandom twitter ever since I started studying abroad, I'm still very active on my real life twitter account. Plus I'm using a new account (well i think it's been 2 years already since I moved to that account [@perootic]) and after being totally disconnected from it when the boys were still in their recharging period, I just didn't have to energy to go through it anymore lol. but I'm starting to check on it now that they're back but I still get very overwhelmed from the volume of content I get so I tend to just give up lmao.

edit: also, let me tell you, my dad follows my RL twitter account but it doesn't bother me at all and the things I tweet are very open and unfiltered😂

ANYWAYS! Hi Lyan! It's been awhile!🙋🏻‍♀️✨

Of course I remember you Zee. Shit I feel so sad that you even had to say that and you're not the first so I feel even sadder... which proves my point... I feel like we've all moved on in a way... but I guess that can't be helped.

Thank for replying. I did see you 'liked'... 'favourite' a tweet yesterday and I was happy to see you XD... the 'old' names popping up really make my day ^^

And you mention getting so much content that it overwhelms you---- well my dear, I need to follow whoever you're following... sometimes I scroll for minutes without seeing a single KAT-TUN content and I feel so awkward that I go scrolling and look for KT content myself and go on a tweeting spree...I only have a few people on my page that seems to retweet so always feel like I don't get enough KT content which makes me sad and I wondered if others are feeling the same deficit as I do... but because they don't retweet I feel like they must UGH

Well in any case, I'm just glad you're here... LJ really feels like home...and while yes, on twitter you have your own account to tweet whatever, I feel like people just talk to themselves like crazy people lol but yeah, I miss fandom and I miss my old pals.... when we cursed each other over ichibans but still remained KAT-TUN... you know? *hugs* I'm glad you're still here XD
Katara Kame-chanhilly_katara on August 14th, 2018 10:56 pm (UTC)
I'm going to join your conversation because your opinion is interesting, days ago I was thinking the same thing, I wrote a note of my personal life in the Lj but I did not dare to do it in twi or Fb ...
I started thinking about the reason....hmmm?
I think Lj is more private and gives us space to write an extensive article unlike social networks where the number of words is limited and where the different ways of thinking are very public and therefore it rains many critics, I'm not against it but I do not like to expose myself, I do not hate social networks, I think they are good to interact and waste time, make a few true friendships and have fun when the day is boring or when you had a bad time at work...
even social networks are a means to find out what is happening with our KAT-TUN <3 or others Johnnys, I think I have the accounts for them but it has become my means of escape when I'm tired of my work and problems, in my opinion not It's bad to have this distraction but everything with moderation!!!!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 15th, 2018 05:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, they definitely are good distractions with moderation. Twitter is really fun at times especially when something (good) happens in fandom, it's a whole flow of energy that I love. I mean, I joined twitter to trend Kame's birthday years ago XD

But like this, it's what you said... you could write me a proper message without having to think about word length and breaking it up into 5 or 6 tweets that gets lost easily. We can have a proper convo

And I'm glad more people are here than I thought ^^

Hello! I hope all is well with you XD
Katara Kame-chanhilly_katara on August 15th, 2018 09:34 pm (UTC)
I'm fine thanks!!!
enjoying the fandom and my work....
I like to exchange points of view and it's good to know that we have points in common....I joined the twi when I knew that Koki made an account, so I can stalker Koki and Jin, and I find out about fandom news jejejee Twitter has its benefits.....
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 17th, 2018 06:25 am (UTC)
So are you still keeping up with Koki? He has been doing things but I haven't been keeping a close watch.

Oh you too! For some reason KT fans also end up liking NEWS. I only pay attention to Shige. He's really smart... and awkward lol
Katara Kame-chanhilly_katara on August 21st, 2018 10:14 pm (UTC)
I'm watching his comments a little ...
lately I have not had time to stalkear him so I lost his Instagram live ...
in the past I was a NEWS fan but lately I have lost interest in them....my work exhausts me ...
but I do not want to lose sight of my guys of KAT-TUN
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on September 6th, 2018 11:45 am (UTC)
"my work exhausts me"

Then all the more reason you need KAT-TUN ^^ I know it's hard to keep up while busy with work and other RL stuff but I've realised that I really do feel refreshed after flailing over them XD
Katara Kame-chanhilly_katara on September 8th, 2018 06:39 pm (UTC)
I think the same, when I'm sad or tired I see some funny Kat-tun video and it raises my spirits ...
They are my drug and of good quality !!!!

I'm leaving a comment because I got to work so early so I had to time to check :D And I read because I was looking forward to some 'pervy-catching' pic of Nakamaru but sadly none.. xD

I'm like sooooooo away in the fandom but doing this comment here in LJ right now -- indeed feels like home <3

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 15th, 2018 05:09 am (UTC)
I was hoping you could hook me up with some naughty Nakamaru pics! I do want him to show some neck and some tittles. That will be sure to bring you back closer and even more at home lol hi hun

Although I haven't really posted much on my lj in the past, I definitely miss the times LJ was the "thing" for fandom years back. It's so much easier for everything to be in one place whether it be download links, fanfiction, news, etc. It was convenient and organized compared to twitter where, take a break one day and you'd miss a ton of updates you won't be able to scroll back enough to see by the time you tune in hours(/days) later.

Twitter is convenient for fast, real time information but not good for archiving purposes and "memories" if you will. It's sad LJ has died down I'd have to be notified by email to know that someone on my mutuals has posted an entry.

I still regularly check LJ in the hopes of finding links I can't be bothered to look for or decipher in weibo but not much is left here. I post sometimes too, sadly only fanrepos and experiences from the cons (which reminds me I haven't done it for Union orz). I've wanted to post more and often say that I will, but it's always a problem of not knowing what to post and if it will be read by anyone for that matter.

Anyway, just wanted to drop a comment. It's so refreshing to get emailed by LJ for entries I just had to.

Good luck on your new job btw! :)
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 15th, 2018 05:21 am (UTC)
Yeah, twitter is a mess for archiving... even pictures become a mess unless you make a folder and it's difficult because sometimes you're not sure when that photo was taken or what it was taken for... and as for videos... I still haven't learned how to download vids from twitter. I'm pretty sure I miss many things compared to years gone by when I had everything without fail.

But yeah, twitter is good for the fast news and the fast response and it has a good energy when something (good) happens in fandom so there are pros.

But it will never have that homely feel like LJ.

Just post whatever you want and whenever you want and don't worry if people will read. For me, I know I'm behind catching up with friends' post because I want to read when I'm not in a hurry but life gets in the way and then I forget... but read or not, I always feel better writing here... even just dropping a gif and 2 lines makes me retain that nostalgia XD

Good luck writing that UNION post... Idk how you still remember that much for a report XD

'Good luck on your new job btw!'

THANK YOU ;)

I'm still around!! I don't post anymore but I still check my fav blogs regularly! I totally understand about being able to not give as much out on twitter when it comes to fangirl needs xD but I too just twitter all day everyday ahah so you were able to get a ticket to the concert? -- that's great! When are you going?
That video of Maru is soooo funny!!! It's hilarious they ended up holding hands xD
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 15th, 2018 05:23 am (UTC)
Hey hun! Great seeing you around XD
Yeah, twitter can make you waste the whole day just browsing random things lol
I got one for Aug 30 but I also want to go on the 29th but tickets are so expensive so I might just settle for 1 day. Are you by chance going?
roro_iedaroro_ieda on August 15th, 2018 04:06 am (UTC)
THE PICS THO....AGREED WITH EVERYTHING WHAT U'VE WRITTEN~~ THEY'RE JUST...urghh.

Agreed with you about twitter and LJ! XD even though i'm more to twitter-person but sometimes i'll rant and bitchy a lot on LJ. ngeeee

well...same as you. i dont want drama and being judge? since twitter is full of freedom where people can say whatever they want but sometimes....nope. i've seen too many fandom dramas on LJ, i guess.

anyway, congrats for the ticket!!! =))
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 15th, 2018 05:31 am (UTC)
The good thing about LJ is that I think by now the people we're friends with or who are friends with us already know us... unlike twitter where people you don't even know... get up in your business... like I've seen people follow me and when I check their profile, we've nothing in common and I'm like, "huh? how/why did you follow me?"

But yeah, those pics are full of yumminess!

All the more reason to go to the concert. Thanks! I'm looking forward to it XD

crism79crism79 on August 15th, 2018 08:53 pm (UTC)
*raises hand* Haaaaaiiiiiii stil here!!! :D

That shoulder and upper arm Kammmmeeeeeeee.... *dead* Seriously.... that little indentation on his upper arm and the mole... nom nom

Lol that pic of Ueda.... I'll forever remember our little excursion to a certain photo shop ^^ Where @powwie and me very casually showed you this pic ;p

Yeah, we've had this conversation before about LJ. I feel the same. Twitter as all other non-lj social media have the problem of having way too much information going at the same time, that either you are there every minute to follow the feed or you might miss something. Granted you can go to each page of the people you follow, but how time consuming is that (even more time consuming)? LJ had everything, every info, links, magazine scans, icons, wallpapers, it might be in different sites but you could easily find it.

And the conversations are, for me, way easier here. I mean, with what I've written so far, how many tweets would I have to break this into? lolol

Plus... like you I don't feel like sharing a lot of stuff or perving over there. LJ is like my safe fandom corner, where I can perv and squee and flail with fellow fans. My twitter account is private but still I don't feel at ease. I'm always like... what if one of my work colleagues finds this? Or what if one of the people who follow me know someone who works with me and shows this to them? I know it's a bit paranoiac ^^

I guess I'm also to blame for not posting as often (though I never posted that much in the first place). Maybe people will grow tired of Tumblr and twitter and return to LJ... in the future... not very hopeful though

And congrats on the new job!!! YYYYAAAYYYYY!!!!! So happy for you!! Hope you got something different and what you were hoping for!

And also ticket!!! I'm sure you'll be able to get another one!! Can't wait for your report!! :D (if you survive Uepi's solo, that is lolol)
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on August 17th, 2018 06:40 am (UTC)
lol You would've by now created an entire twitter thread just to say all this lol

LJ was really a 1 stop shop for everything.

The 'icons'! I was browsing KTL and saw people posting icons and wondered if people still use them... fandom was so crazy for icons and wallpapers and gif but now... or maybe it's that I haven't yet evolved haha

And yes, concert and new job! Thank you. Hopefully I'll still have my head after seeing Ueda's solo lol

I hope you guys will be back in Japan soon so we can go shop photo hunting lol I'll put away cash just for this adventure lol
