akabana_chan: Help me?


I'm looking for any Floppy cosplay items! I saw a few older post that had people selling, but I don't know if they are still available. So if anyone has anything they want taken off their hands, I'm willing to buy right away!

vulgar_shudder: Long shot

But anyone got a ticket spare to the live in Osaka on the 24th? Or know if CLAPPER sells tickets on the door?

I was too slow and now the live house website is saying it's sold out :/

pinknives: Lyric translations?

Hello :3 I was wondering if anyone would be willing to translate FLOPPY's "Kimi wa Suteki" for me? I would really appreciate it, considering it's my favorite song of theirs! ^^ Thank you!

sporkbotic: Cosplay for Sale

Hey everyone. I'm selling off my Floppy cosplay jacket. I need the money for food more than I need the jacket taking space in my closet.

I made it for KumoriCon 2006, and wore it once more at SakuraCon 2007. It is hand made, and is still in the same condition it was in the first time I wore it. I'm about 5'8" with a slim/athletic build, so it'll fit best for some one who is around my height and body type, but could be taken in, or made a bit shorter.

Asking price is $15 + shipping & paypal fees.

akakori: FLOPPY et al at FAB

I went to see FLOPPY last night! They were awesome, as you'd expect! Did anyone else go? There were two other bands there: 航空電子 and ミンカ・パノピカ who were good, but I didn't buy their CDs...

Here's the setlist as I remember it. [EDIT: The setlist is now what it says it was on their website]

OP. Sine Wave Orchestra
1.eureka
2.東京テクノ音頭
3.デウスエクスマキナ
-MC-
4.everything
5.遊星Valhalla
6.meta色吐息 [what I called the janken song before :P]
7.8bit ガールズブラボー [yep, meto remix!]
-MC-
8.哲学堂心中
9.君は素敵
-en-
10.ヘルタースケルター

Sharaku was adorable as ever, using what looked like a pink cellphone to sing into. But looked so cool when he got his own guitar out to play the new single "everything".

Toda-san looked very cool surrounded by all his devices. His way of playing them is so flamboyant and shows off his dark humor (using one device by slashing it across his wrist to make it blip).

I dunno if he's always done this, but Fukusuke had a matching suit and was on stage all the time and didn't just play supporting guitar, he had his own Apple computer and a touch-screen device to play on too. I haven't heard of him taking as big a role before so maybe this has indications for the future after metronome?

They had messages running across their visors which I think were funny but I wasn't close enough to be able to read them :(

But Sharaku talked about future shows - one in Shibuya on 19th July (on the website), and two One-Mans! :D Which are in Osaka and Nagoya! :(

And I got the new CD: 1.everything 2.雪月花 [setsugekka) 3.everything remixed by Shunichi Miura. "everything" is very up-tempo, features a lot of guitar and Sharaku's voice is very soft like in sayonara Milk Tea. "setsugekka" is slow and reminds me of 'bara to guuren' but with FLOPPY's blips in the background.

coka_im_fine: News Update: New Site, Blogs, Single, etc!

Hey everyone,

Sharaku just announced on his blog of the opening of their new homepage. The old one (www.picopico.org) will be shut down at the end of May. They have new blogs and a new info blog as well.


FLOPPY homepage is now www.floppy-web.com

FLOPPY infoblog: http://blog.livedoor.jp/floppy_info/

Sharaku's new blog: http://blog.livedoor.jp/sharaku_floppy/

Toda-san's new blog: http://blog.livedoor.jp/hiromu_floppy/



They also have a new single coming out, which will be available for purchase on 4/18, called 「everything」. People not in Japan will be able to buy it as a digital single in May or June. FLOPPY is getting a profile on www.japanfiles.com, which is a website aiming to make Japanese music more available to the English-speaking world.



Ok! Enough business, as exciting as it is.

Let's all take a moment now to relish in such dorkiness... Sharaku finished his plastic model omgggggg!!!!!!!! He, Toda-san, and Shintaro made them together... got a big LOL from me XD

Yaay FLOPPY!

I'm thinking about starting a translation journal for Sharaku's new blog. If you would read it, could you comment? If people are interested, I'd do it, but if not, I'll just continue reading it myself.

sporkbotic: MOD Post

Hey, kids. Just a reminder that mp3 sharing and posts looking for files are not allowed. Please make sure that you're reading the rules before posting. Honestly, there's a million other places to look for this stuff.

Here are the rules, just in case you forgot.

1) Posts must be FLOPPY related!
2) Please be civil; if I see a flame war starting, I will promptly put an end to it in any means (however weird or unnecessary) I see fit.
3) No posts looking for files. No mp3's. No videos. Photos are fine. Please support the band and buy their items.


Thanks.
