English Translation I keep forgetting to translate into English. I don't think any English natives read these articles. Anyway, here we go.
It's only a week from Today. It's a show with Overkill. I'm just a blog mistress (web mistress?) for this blog site, but I'm nervous a little.
When was the last time I saw their show? It was about 7 years ago. They came in town when it was becoming Metal Ice Age. I got a story I heard from my old friend ♀ back then.
She was a heavy drinker. Everytime and everywhere she goes to see some national acts in the shows, she gets in the back stage, and had a drink and chat with the band member.
So did she, with Overkill member when they were in town. She was especially flirting with Bobby, which she insisted she wasn't, but Bobby told her,
"I'm married, though.."
She told me, "I knewwwwww it!" I assumed that she didn't realize she did flirt with him. Or Bobby's self-consciousness?
Well, it rarely happens for local people to find that Japanese girls are hanging around at Metal shows and the bars. So, we, Japanese girls are rather picked up by some band members who have been in Japan, using all kind of Japanese language skill they got. It's a kinda embrassing when you don't know the band member's face. My attitude was like, "Who the hell are you?"
It was exactly like that when I first saw Magnus from HAMMERFALL. (Sorry Magnus) When they came in Seattle with DEATH for the US tour, I went to see DEATH. I didn't know HAMMERFALL at all. Warrel from NEVERMORE said to me, "They are very popular in Japan!" Really? That's how I learned about the band. I didn't know their faces.
When I came out of the bar, I met Magnus of HAMMERFALL, who was hanging around in front of the tour bus. He suddenly spoke to me like this, "Konbanwa!", Good evening in Japanese, I think. He used to have a Japanese girlfriend when he lived in LA a long time ago, so he knew a lot of bad Japanese words and sentences.
I was pretty knocked off when he said, "Do you wanna fxxk with me?" in Japanese. Dooo noooot teach him such bad Japanese, folks!
