I noticed that on all their promotional materials, it said, "From Japan," however, while it's true that they are from Japan and they do often sing in Japanese, they are first and foremost musicians. I think people forget that fact sometimes. My only concern is: how can we reach out to people who do not know about VAMPS? Any suggestions? It's hard because it's not like these people are just in one specific location, you know? I have been having difficulties locating people who are unaware about VAMPS' awesome music. Even though the tour is over, *lol* it seems as though we're back to square one, doesn't it?
The sad part is that I live in one of the most narrow-minded states in the world. Whenever I try to talk to anyone about VAMPS or any other Japanese musician, they shun it. They seem to have this mindset that if they can't understand it, they can't enjoy it. The music may be amazing, but if they can't understand it, it's simply not worth it. So it's difficult to promote it in my area or any of the surrounding areas. For that reason, it was such a shock to hear that VAMPS were coming to Baltimore. It was actually CLOSE to me.

Though that's not to say my area is the ONLY area under that mindset. The US in general is an extremely narrow-minded country, hence the rights of women to vote took years of protests to accomplish. I know I probably just bruised a ton of patriotic egos, but one can't deny that the US can be very narrow. But it's not something that you can blame it for. The fact is that the US, although the country consists of primarily immigrants, has very little culture shock. The only REAL culture shock we have throughout the US is that the country below us speaks Spanish and a less-than-decent percentage of the country above us speaks French.

So the only way I know how to spread the word would be to introduce one friend of similar interests to it. If they like it, tell them to spread it to another and so-forth. It would probably help if HYDE would get whomever watches over his site to add a link to the VAMPS website on HYDEIST. We can also refer to add "HYDE x K.A.Z." to every promotional banner we make instead of just VAMPS. Also... we need to find someway to get rid of the annoying confusion between Hide of X-Japan and HYDE. Don't get me wrong, I love Hide, but it really gets annoying when people mistake him for HYDE and say "HYDE is dead T_T" - Seriously, I've heard that so many times that it's aggravating =x - Yeah, if it weren't for people mistaking HYDE for Hide, we could really get more VAMPS alertness.

Interestingly, there is also an American musician named "Hyde" so it wouldn't hurt to cause some mass confusion between the two in order to introduce fans of one Hyde to the other. Lawl.
