Requests in Italics

Joining us in the stuido last week were Sarah D. from UD, Mike Brown, MY Bad Transitions Replacement Craig Carestia, and Charles, making his triumphant return. We did our best to keep the show very light hearted and did alot of expirimenting with the webcam. At one point, we had 15 viewers, which I think is a WIXQ record! We expirimented with it a bit afterwards too, and figured out how to optimally run the webcam program, so hopefully, next time we air, we can run it with MUCH less lag. In the future, we'll try to even do Webcam specific events such as Sarah's para para that closed the show.

As for talk breaks, I don't think we ever covered anything important. Instead, we just kinda goofed off. At one point, Sarah made a comment that Miyavi is a "crack whore" that garnered a HUGE fan response, and I LOVED IT! BTW, for future refference, if we say something you really agree with, and you IM it to us, it'll probably be read on air! So, keep sending in the in show comments. However, if you disagree with something we say, you can be almost CERTAIN it will be read. Here at Tainted Reality, we are firm believers of balanced representation. So, if someone on the show isn't defending your case, do it yourself! By all means, please do! Have your voice heard damnit! And just because Sarah said Miyavi is a crack whore, doesn't mean we won't play him. We even got a request for some solo Daishi too, which is something I've been meaning to play for weeks, coz, well, most people don't know he has a solo CD out!

There is one thing I need to address that is kinda my fault. Some of you were thrown for a loop it seemed when we started off the show with Nine Inch Nails and Slipknot and later on played Johnny Cash (Walk The Line, out in theatres now, GO SEE IT) and Motorhead (though most of the comments on that were directed at my lesson to Mike about how to head bang). I don't say this as much as I should, but on Tainted Reality, we honor ALL requests. Well, I do my best to atleast. While we are primarily a J-Rock radio show, if you have that one song that feels like an ich in your brain, and the only thing you can do to scratch it is by hearing it, as long as we have it in the studio, we'll cure all your ills, whether it be J-Rock or not. I feel that I owe it to who ever is requesting because they are taking time out of their day to listen to our show. The fans get to hear what ever they want to hear as far as I'm concerned. This is a thing I've had ever since I started in radio. I personally love to get a variety of requests, and will do my best to fulfill them all.

Speaking of variety, (personal rant BEWARE) the 56,745,632 Dir en grey requests we get a show are begining to urk me. There are more bands out there than Kyo and his boyz! Personally, even though this may urk some of you when this happens, I love getting requests for bands I've never heard of before! Someone requested Lolita23q a few weeks ago, and I was dumbfounded. I later checked 'em out and found out they were pretty good! Another faithful listener, almost every week, checks up to see if I've gotten any Melt Banana. When he first asked, I had no clue who they were. But now, I'm doing my best to fulfill his need for Melt Banana, plus, I'm exposed to a crazy, fun, new band. As I have been open about before, many of you guys out there know more about this scene than I do. Feel free to educate me! I'm here to serve you! Gaining knowledge of new bands, especially those outside the VK scene (*cough* Coaltar Of The Deepers *cough*), help to add spice and flavor to the show. So, please, by all means, give me lists of bands that I SHOULD know and SHOULD be playing, no matter how unknown they may be. I was very happy to get a few of those last week, and I hope it continues in full force!

And just for the record, I love Dir en grey just as... well... not as much as some of you out there but I like 'em alot. By all means, if Dir en grey is what you really really crave, you will get your Dir en grey. I just want to encourage some variety in the requests. And don't worry Diru fans, I'm trying to do what ever I can to get a Diru interview for you, where I would take fan questions... if it ever happens (I don't even know where to start). Trust me gang, they're at the top of my list and I would KILL to have 'em on the show.

I also announced what will become a yearly tradition for the show to cap off the last season of each year (On WIXQ, our seasons go from January-May and August-December because we're college radio). From now on, on the last week of airing in December, we will do an all-goth show, The Crimson Sin, which was a tradition that originated on my days on Bad Transitions. More info to come on this later.

Lastly, don't forget about our exclusive interview with Coaltar of the Deepers, THIS NEXT SHOW on December 1st!! Also, Josephine Yun, who has now been reschedualed for December 8th, and the mailing list. If you wish to become a member of our mailing list, please send an e-mail to eternal_pictures@yahoo.com titled "Mailing List" to be informed of all of the Tainted Reality news, blogger updates, and you know what, I'm gonna think of some special shit for mailing list members only!

Thanks go out to everyone who listened this week, despite Ms. Yun's absence. You guys truely rox0r and I hope you all continue to tune in every week! There will be no show this week because of the holiday, so to make up for it, I'll tray and keep the blogger as active as possible.

-Roger

P.S. I owe someone out there a D song next week. Major sorries that I didn't play it, but getting in studio para para is too hard to pass up!

you want some stuff that's not regular vk and indie? check out deathgaze, berry, and lynch. the vocalist of all of these bands is the same ... well, accept for the current vocalis of deathgaze. berry started, they broke up, hazuki (the vocalist) made deathgaze, then left them and made lynch. i request you getting some of their stuff (or all of their stuff cuz they only have like one or two maxi's total) cuz i wanna hear it on the air.

love,
- jonny

p.s. - hope you're doing better since the last time i talked to you.
